Message from the Ethiopian Somali: Destruction and Violence is not a solution for Today’s Ethiopia
By Ahmed Deeq Hussein
Nowadays, recurrent protests are happening in some parts of the country which has no clear reason for me but I felt too much sorrow to our people to have unlawful demonstration against the government particularly in the ancient city of Gonder and some parts of Oromia region. We are not like civilized western world, we are part of horn of Africa region; most complex, volatile and complicated region in the Africa. Ethiopia is engulfing under very critical environment which favorite to our enemies that against well-being of our country in economic development and technological advancements. Ethiopia is colorful in ethnic and religion diversity to co-exist together in a peaceful and respectful manner to each other. Ethnic based federalism is the only matter that integrity of the country to be in place and every ethnic would enjoy in respectful manner. Ethiopia is recorded double digit economic development for last 20 years that make the country fastest economic growing country in Africa. Current federal democrat republic of Ethiopia is the government that able to make sure Abay dam construction to be realized and would be utilized our water resources nearby future which we could not able to take such heroic division in the past. Railway construction, the second growth & transformation projects is almost all completed and to be functionalized soon. Meantime; Kalub Gas project is under good progress to export our natural gas soon which is the thirty most economic development projects of our country —that we hope to be utilized soon due to current peace and security that exist in Ethiopian Somali region which was the most insecure region in the country for long time, but now recognized as one of most peaceful region in the country, because people of Ethiopian Somali region are peace driven people and well familiar the difference between violation, destruction & what does it mean peace and security importance. Ethiopia has excellence credibility in diplomatic and foreign relation—that brought Ethiopia became UN Security Council non-permanent member for first time in the history. This is great historic success and achieved as a result of international politics advancement and the roles of international peacekeeping missions across the world under United Nations and AMISONs framework.
Ethiopia is a country that unfortunately happened to be a potential target for terrorist groups to carry out terrorist attacks if there is any possible chances to do so. The people of Ethiopia should understand this external threats to our country. Why we are creating vacancy to our surrounding enemies in the horn of Africa region? Why we give opportunities to Eretria, Egypt and other countries that do not want our wellbeing and advancement for our economic growth? Why our Ethiopian young people are being used as a tool to carry out the agendas of our enemies to destroy and destabilize our country? Whatever ethnic you are; we are all Ethiopian, we have common interest and goals if not external people misguided us to use our people as tool of self-destruction. Peace is a like mat of all mankind, our Peace is the only a solution that our ecosystem to maintain & exist through normal mean which favor to all living organism for all kingdoms of living things i.e. human being, animal and plants. Peace has very sweet sucking breast, peace cannot be paid for hard currency or money. It’s a situation that make possible to exist people, nation and country through normal cycle from generation to generation. Peace is determinant factors for economic progress, growth, development and country’s advancement for new technology and to create new innovation. Peace is the only way that people’s question can be raised and secured the rights of people. Destruction and violation is not a solution for our country. It’s disastrous and catastrophic to our country’s existence. We have to respect our constitution, we have respect our rights & not to violate our rights by ourselves, we have to respect our country’s existence and our people, nations, nationalities co-existence, and stability of our country which cannot be a joke. Our young people should respect law and order of our country and should stop country violation and destruction which is not possible totally to realize the dreams of our enemies to lead our country into self-destruction. I would like to insist let our young people stop to be a tool of others to destruct our property, peace, stability, integrity and co-existence of Ethiopian peoples, nations and nationalities which is the only solution that we can be Ethiopia as one nation. I want to suggest Government of Ethiopia should listen the aspirations of people if it’s constitutional rights and solve accordingly the root causes of protests and should not accept any things that would bring destruction and violations against peace and stability of our country. As a citizen I want to express how much I felt sorry what happening in Gonder the known ancient city of Ethiopia and some parts of Oromia region—that against our integrity, co-existences, stability, peace, security & economic development of our country, and Ethiopian peoples, nations & nationalities. Finally, I want say to my people of other parts of Ethiopia—that protests are happening self-destruction and self-violations is not a solution to our country. Bear in mind peace is the only solution for our existence. Please and please bad behaves and do not support to our enemies they are fueling us to continue our destruction. Your brothers, people of Ethiopian Somali region are not happy what happening some parts of highland areas.
