Reportage from Federal Police and Anti Terror Task Force on the current Disturbance in North Amhara Region - July 2016
Interview with Ato Nugusu Amhara Government Public Relation Head.
Although the VOA journalist tried to put words in his mouth Ato Nugusu was successful in passing his own message. His message was no one was above the law and those responsible for the destruction in Debarek and Gondar will be held accountable and that the government will try to separate the criminals from the law abiding citizens who may have been involved in this unfortunate event. It is amazing how much the VOA journalist is shaming herself...Minister Getachew did not say it was an ethnic vs ethnic crime! It is sad America's democracy is causing havoc in Ethiopia this way!

Ethnic Background of Federal Police and Security Officials Killed in the recent Gondar Disturbance VOA Amharic and the extremist media may have you believed the security officials that went to apprehend the wanted people in Gondar and surroundings were from Tigrai but the fact is the martyred were from all over Ethiopia. They were the true faces of the new Ethiopia! We are sure Ethiopia and Ethiopians will overcome their sorrow but we wonder if the federal government will learn something from this and enact laws if needed to control rouge regional leaders or party officials that are straying away from the EPRDF line.

How could the birth place of Ethiopia with all its diversity Gondar be tainted as such? What is the role of political leaders? It is truly sad!
