Addis Maleda quoted Commissioner of Regional Disaster Risk Management Commission, Gebre-Hiwot Gebre-Egziabher (Dr) as saying that the cold and rainy winter season has made the situation extremely difficult. Apart from this, 1, 411 people in three Zones died of starvation following the suspension of the humanitarian aid coming from donor agencies.  

The commissioner said that over 2.6 million people who were displaced from their areas due to the recent bloody war are in a very sad situation and many are dying from hunger on a daily basis.  

Therefore, the commissioner has called on donor organisations and the international community to join forces in the prevention effort of the famine that is killing people and start the humanitarian aid as soon as possible in Tigray Region.

  1. Nobody should be proud of this. It just grinds my heart. Dying from starvation is the most agonizing death a human being can experience. It is a slow and painful death organ by organ. Woe my beloved people! Woe my beloved country! Woe, woe, woe!!!!

  2. “Apart from this, 1, 411 people in three Zones died of starvation following the suspension of the humanitarian aid coming from donor agencies. ”

    This indicates that Tigray’s widespread famine fatalities were brought on by avaricious, dishonest businesspeople and officials. As a result of the TPLF’s officials and businessmen’s corruption, thievery, and embezzlement, the food supply has been suspended. In conclusion, avaricious Tigrayan businessmen killed poor, displaced Tigrayans.
