    It is sad to see the local and the federal government failed to protect citizens from such a disaster. You can’t help but ask if there is a government beyond Addis to the south.

    Thank you Awramba Times staffs, for giving us ear full when things go wrong in the country. Unlike the oppositions media out let, your report is always genuine and I will take this report at face value. It had no political theater, had nothing…simply a genuine report. Dawit the video tape in the report was not clear, a little bit awkward. Anyways I was able to grasp the idea. Regrettably the response from the local government authority was disappointing. Would please try to make a follow of the case and update the situation to your readers

    I am sorry my beloved Ethiopians. I respect all live, but love more minorities. Hope our gov’t hear this sorrow and give response immediately. Be strong my brother and sisters. Love time is coming.

    Shame to the Authorities of the nation. Don’t blame the Saudis for the force full deportation of Ethiopian citizens from Saudi Arabia, while you are doing it yourself by engaging a local gangs to execute a murderous evection of the Kemaya people from their own land.

    It is a sad and heart wrenching story, a story of horrible crime, injustices and a shame full act of despicable violence brought upon to a good citizens by arrogant, organized criminal gangs. —
    Just from the video we all can see that a school is destroyed. The question is the school ever have teachers? Who is the teachers employer ? The government? It is obvious that Ethiopian government officials of every level of local, regional and federal authorities must be held accountable as A direct or indirect culprit of this heinous crime and murderous act against own innocent citizens. —
    Is the government of Ethiopia can have any sense of humanity to take any responsibility for its lack of seeing citizens as equal citizens of the nation and kept on treating them as an enemy and can be eliminated if their land is needed for its bottomless greedy leaders? —-
    The question is, who has an eye for the land of the crying Kemaya people ? —
    I can see only evil on the authorities part and what the hell is that important to the dam fool local leader other than addressing the cause of this demonic crime, unless he is actually part and organizer of the killing armada and murderer gangs of dark nights? —–
    You can call it escape got or term it in any way one can, it is now up to the high level Ethiopian government official to bring to justice not only the murderers but also the local authorities. —-

    Awramba times thank you FOR YOUR SAD BUT GOOD REPORTING and that is true journalism. From North Pole

    I for one demand Justice to my fellow country man and women and brothers and sisters of Kemaya.—

    God bless Ethiopia and true Ethiopians

    The idea was a journalism one. But the covering has nothing to do with a journalism work.

    Is it a village journalism doing with traditional knowledge without knowing the rules and right things to do journalism?

    He was speaking Amharic but saying Green, document, blah blah. What is that?

    Is it difficult to say “አረንጓዴ፣ መረጃ …”? ማፈሪያ

    Dawit;
    you are doing the best. Teach them how to work and behave as professional journalist using the language they are covering as pure and clean as possible. If not, they must stop and find another job or working as brainwashed nigger English journalists if they want to use English. Mixing salt and sugar together will not give the same result. But destroying the one with another.

    It was a good story. But because of his work as journalism meaning using cheap and street English words from England while speaking Amharic, makes the story worthless and not interested. All his efforts are lost this way by himself.

    Teach them how to do the Journalism work. They are the grown up children have no idea what is wrong or right and where and when.

  11. Alem says:

    Another yellow reporting.Observe the two Kemaya residents are only heard and not viewed speaking. I doubt the voice is theirs. So now the purpose becomes to show the ruling minority protects the rights of “nations and nationalities.” Rather “selectively” protects. What we are not being told in this report is why now and how this action affects other “nations and nationalities” living in the shadow of another election.

    We extend our sincere apologies to our esteemed readers due to an error occurred in the previous video uploads. The problem is now fixed and enjoy the new video

    Are these not the very people EPRDF came to protect?

    ” statics aleh? Ene statics zexeni Amet serichalehu. bet malet….” Lol

    It is sad! The Kemaya are at best not more than 2000 in a region that has 15,000,000 people and a population density of 145/km2, one of the highest compared to 120/mm2 Amhara, 100/km2 in Tigray and 98/km2 in oromia and 13/km2 in south Sudan. Resource fights are bound to happen amongst small groups, have happened before and will continue to happen in the future. The best thing is to expect it to happen, put preventative and restorative actions in place.
    —–
    Of course there was the bigger issue of the finfine and surrounding 150,000 oromos as attested by an ex-EPRDF, addis ababa official. Extreemly damning, from the point of view of “engagement” of people at UN when EPRDF parliamentarians are trained not to contest, debate or vote differently in “policy” matters; when the executive can push extra-constitutional proclamations/amendments on huge issues such as LAND constituting to what might be infered as “ethnic cleansing” for “profit”????
    —–
    Suffice to say, the clouds feel thick in addis, as in times past, calling for a shift in path, to the Ras wana be’s, who don’t own the air!! It can’t go on like this! Not with this generation, not with the developmental path where all the low hanging fruits have been picked
    out! Where minds and not bodies need to be managed, where engagement and ownership is the required attitude. I hope EPRDF makes the bold decision to become internally democratic and do so immediately and announce the changes. The secret with power is knowing when to let some of it go. These are relatively minor and evolutionary changes compared to what I feel is coming if EPRDF keeps static like the emperor and derg a few years before their respective total collapse.

    TPLF war lords need the land!

    • Tn. says:

      1)TPLF had no war lords. War loardism occurs in countries endowed with readily available natural resources, as in the case of Zaire or South Sudan where the primary motive of war is to capture the natural resource. TPLF was and still believe is a group bound by and around definitive IDEALS.
      2) Bodily needs are limited and readily available. There was an ongoing study around an Indian Professor in one of the SW states where he was, last I checked, on day 124 off of warm water and 3 acts of 15 minutes gazing directly into the sun! The experiment was in a controlled and supervised environment. He was still vigilant and active on his interview. I brought this point to negate the “need” statement. Now one can say that they want it, they desire for it, or at higher degrees of severity, one can say that they lust and covet after it. But to say they need it is to debase the definition of need so I won’t buy that statement!
      3) Along the journey, life drops her enticements which build up the desire body. As it seems a generational curse, Eve the mother of Abel, keeps coming with the same apple and henpeck a desire into a need. To a varying degree, To bite or not to bite is every person’s challenge. To the christian, it is temptation, to the Buddhist it is vassana. There is no religion that hasn’t addressed this fight of man against desire and temptation. So too, the more one yields to temptation the stronger the desire body grows. The stronger the desire body, the stronger the urge to justify desire as need. In a nut shell, as in any segment of society, a percentage of TPLF freedom fighters have fallen to temptation as has Samson to Delilah, David to Bathsheba. Paul’s cry of the fight against the “sin nature” in him! so temptation and fall happens to the best of them! The danger is not as much in the fall, but in a) not seeing the fall(denying it or honestly being blinded by it) b) justifying it as a need or worse, claiming it as a right or entitlement. At the point of justification, pride and arrogance sets in, as energies calling a fall.
      4) “need the LAND”. So did emperor Hailessilase and his system! Nations and nationalities, as importat as it is, finds it’s bases on secure land! More than I though, this concept is much more clear to TPLF leadership that was part of LAND question of Hailesellassie era. so I won’t belabor the issue further and add a layer of resistance to the justification of desire as need. Rather, it is perhaps worthy to discuss the implication of this outright and blatant rent-seeking
      behavior of some in developmental EPRDF that mascareds itself as need. Its negative effect on value creation and value creating activities has been touched upon by PM Meles in Parliament in relation to it’s extensive negative impact on SMEs and manufacturing, and was castigated down on world economic forum and has in spirit agreed to taking the land laws back to where it was pre 2002 EC status to secure land tenure and totally eliminate land speculation before venturing the manufacturing/value creation arena. As is, one will be foolish to waist his/her energy in manufacturing only to find out that the land that the factory is built on is worth more than the factory itself, price driven by the speculation of neighboring “owners”.
