PM Abiy, there is No Justification to Keep Binyam in Jail. Do not undermine yourself- You said no one will be jailed without a reason. You are holding Binyam in jail for over a month and you still can not charge him! ዝግበር ግቨር እምብር ህዝቢ ይክፋእ አሎ!!

Ethnic unrest tarnishes new Ethiopian leader's reforms
CHELELEKTU, Ethiopia (Reuters) - Shiburu Kutuyu, a 45-year-old Ethiopian maize and coffee farmer, was jolted awake by gunshots one night in June. He told his wife and seven children to flee.They returned to find their mud-walled home had been burned down, but no sign of Shiburu. Eleven days later, fellow farmers found his body hanging from a tree, his severed limbs strewn on the ground."A mob of Oromo youths killed him in the most gruesome manner,"
