“Amhara and Oromo university students continue to be a subject of arrest, torture and extra judicial killings,” says a student at Bahirdar University.
“Such atrocities tantamount to the exacerbating barbaric ways how terrorist regime TPLF slaughter its hostages,” continued the student at Bahirdar University.
University students are demanding that the Tigrian regime leave hostaged territories of the Amhara and Oromia regional states; However, ethnic Tigrian university students have joined with Tigrian security forces to beat and murder a number of ethnic Amhara and Oromo university students as opposed to joining with the authentic causes of their fellow classmates.
ANDEM and OPDO — which are the Amhara and Oromo wing of the ruling party respectively — boycotted the meeting of EPRDF’s executive committee deliberated this week, citing exacerbating internal colonization and atrocities in their constituencies , on their people by the Tigrian regime. Another imperative parliamentary secession — called for this week by the prime minister — was unanimously boycotted by the representatives from the constituencies of the marginalized Amhara and Oromia regional states. Furthermore, ANDEM and OPDO are demanding the immediate pull out of colonizing TPLF forces from their regions , citing exacerbating atrocities against their people and large scale devastation of communities.
Headed by General Samora Yenus who publicly said,” We have weakened Amhara and the Ethiopian Orthodox church” , thousands of Tigrian troops entered the Amhara and Oromo regional states , counterproductively overtaking the regional administrations nearly a year ago. Since then thousands have died as well as became chronically disabled while close to 60,000 are under incarceration; Furthermore, the TPLF army continues to bill the department of finance of the Amhara regional state for its exacerbating heinous crimes against humanity of militarily repressing ethnic Amharas. Credible sources at the finance unit of the regional state quantify that over 62% of the annual budget for the Amhara regional state will be fragmented off to accommodation, salary and military logistics of the invading Tigrian Army ; As a result, basic services such as education, health and agriculture are deteriorating .
Cars belonging to the ‘Amhara Health Authority’ , ‘Amhara Education Authority’ and other regional institutions are increasingly put to use for the commotion of invading Tigrian soldiers.
Corruption, kickbacks and bribery are on the rise in Ethiopia. The national debt of the country is going up while more than 30 billion USD has gone out of Ethiopia as an illicit financial outflow, according to a report from Global Financial Integrity, a Washington-based research and advocacy organization.
“The people of Ethiopia are being bled dry. No matter how hard they try to fight their way out of absolute destitution and poverty, they will be swimming upstream against the current of illicit capital leakage. The global shadow financial system happily absorbs money that corrupt public officials, tax evaders, and abusive multi-national corporations siphon away from the Ethiopian people, “ wrote Sarah Freitasin in the report which she co-authored with GFI Lead Economist,Dev Kar.
“TPLF should consider a mediation by the U.S. government and organize an all party conference before the country collapses,” says Herman Cohen, the former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs.
One thing is clear. The regime is losing its legitimacy — if there’s any — and crumbling day by day. Consequently, the sooner essential transitions are made now is in the best interest of Ethiopia and beyond.
