President Abay Woldu discussion with Nebelet and Edagarbi Residents! - Jan 2017
The issue of border dispute between Amhara and Tigrai regional states was the most exploited issue during last year's disturbance. The Wolqayit/Tsegede issue was presented as a good governance issue by some corners!...but was there an issue to start with? Watch the video and listen to what some of the actors are saying today. We can only hope the EPRDF leadership will air some day what they discussed behind doors in regard to this issue and the disturbance similar to what the people of Wolqayit and Tsegede have done!
