Residents of Dera who spoke to the M&G claimed that the regional Oromia Special Police Force did not intervene to stop the violence. According to another survivor, at least 150 members of the force were housed at Dera’s stadium, minutes away, as the carnage unfolded.

“We kept calling them and begging them to help,” he said. “They told us that without orders, they couldn’t get involved. They saw the fires and the fleeing people and stayed put.”

The Amharas living in Oromia are not getting the picture.  The Oromo are ethnically cleansing their region. They did this to Somalis who lived among them for decades or centuries, Somalis who don't even speak Somali.

The regional police unit was founded less than a year ago, and saw its latest recruits graduate in March, to much fanfare. The force reportedly took over the town shortly after the attackers had left.

It seems the attacks are coordinated,

Another man, also sheltering in the church, said: “The killers moved from home to home. They knew their targets and they were quick and methodical with the way they poured gasoline over properties. Nobody in town recognised any of them. They aren’t from the area, but someone from here must have guided them.”

That is the ugly political reality of present-day Ethiopia. Moreover, the fact is that the Tigray's region is, by all intents and purposes, free from any political diktat from the central's government command in Addis-Ababa, which makes the dicey picture of Ethiopia evermore gloomier also.

For the Tigray have their own army. And what is worse is that Mr. Abiy Ahmed can't actually go there, or even be welcomed there with anything other than with bullets, particularly, were he to be foolish enough to even ventured there.

And now, the Oromos are getting the "Memo" of actually "ethnically cleansing" from their region anyone else who is not one of them. As these horrific burned pictures are showing to us.

Hence, all these add up the picture that forms the dawning reality, which tells the fact, that, Mr. Abiy Ahmed, may not have much of a "cohesive state" to call Ethiopia much longer. Let alone having one in which a parliamentary election can be held for it by next year as he hopes to do it.

The Oromo are doing what Croats did to the Serbs of Croatia., They were able to create an entirely pure Croat Croatia  They tried to do the same thing in Bosnia but Clinton interrupted them.

The groups least prepared for this horrific destiny are the Somalis and nations in the southern region. I know Abiy was no good when he watched (Lemma Margesa endorsed) the mass ethnic cleansing of Somalis.

And Abtigiis is not prepared either. In fact, I would not be surprised if Somaligalbeed splinters once Ethiopia splinters.

Che,

Of all the Somali politicians that I have seen their political malfeasance, Mr. Abtigiis is the worst offender. Why? Well, one doesn't expect much from your average illiterate (or quasi-illiterate Somali) politician. But Mr. Abtigiis is an educated man, a cultured man, a man who knows inside-out of the politics of Ethiopia.

He had studied deeply that ramshackle empire, he did spend too much time analyzing it throughout the years. And in fact, I would be hard-pressed to find any other Somali politician or even intellectual, who thought seriously about Ethiopia and her political destiny as he did.

And yet, when the rubber had hit the road (or when the fat lady started singing her lungs out), where the future political destiny of Ethiopia was at close in hand to be grasped fully like the manner others such as the Tigray and Oromos are doing it now openly, he was found to be indecisive, tongue-tied, incurious, half-hearted, not-one-thing-nor-the-other, and deeply unprepared for the task at hand.

And that task, mind you, is simply to safeguard at all cost the Somalis and their region, in terms of politically, security-wise, and culturally, whatever the ultimate fate for the rest of Ethiopia may be, or may turn out to be. He is really been a rather bitter disappointment to all around, I am afraid.

Oodweyne,

I gave on him when he did nothing for IDPs camped outside Jigjiga. The fact that he dissolved the regional party without any consultation (not that they had real power before) so he could join the Abiy's so-called Prosperity was even more telling.
