Could EPRDF’S disruption result in national disintegration?
‘Nation is nothing without its people, so whenever we say nation, we refer to its people’, this is amid the late PM #Meles Zenawi’s golden sayings which make him be in our memories forever. A nation doesn’t mean the rivers and mountains, but the people who possess dignity and rights.
If the term nation has such an implication, the 2011 #Ethiopian fiscal year has been a year during which dozens were killed and displaced from their homes.
No one can counter-argue on the green lights the coming of Doctor #Abiy Ahmed to office has initially come up with despite the fact that he eventually started acting against all the pillars and decisions of #EPRDF.
Eventually, Abiy has started setting up traps for EPRDF to trip on. He has been, openly doing all that he could to paralyze EPRDF by disseminating false and mischievous statements to become popular.
It is an open secret that it was Ethiopia which had the world’s biggest internally displaced population in the past 2011 Ethiopian Budget year. The most saddening regarding the issue was the reason Abiy came up with as a justification. He proudly expressed that all the victims did not displace after he came to office. That was an indication of his being an irresponsible leader which in return enabled us to know the direction the front was heading to.
BBC has recently reported that 1229 people have died in the 2011 E.C fiscal year due to the conflicts in the nation.
The other most shocking issue on the subject at hand was that Abiy’s government did not either condemn or give any statement while citizens were crucified upside down in daylight and massacred at public squares by mob justice. As reported by BBC, in 2011 E.C, over one million two thousand citizens were displaced from their localities.
As a result, quite many victims have been questioning and explaining their hesitations on the presence of government in the nation. What happened to the case of the Gedeo people was a living testimony.
2011 was also a year during which banks were robbed at daylight.
In the past recent days, Abiy expressed in an interview he gave to a given media on the eve of the Ethiopian New Year that the nation would continue existing, it is people who die.
Since then, people were questioning Abiy regarding his response on the issue. They are asking him what he meant by a nation whose people are dying. That seems why the late PM Meles used to say a nation without its people is nothing.
As per scholars, the disruption of EPRDF is clearly resulting in national disintegration.
