Emergency Decree Update 10-26-16
Two weeks in to the emergency decree Ethiopians are slowly recovering from the initial shock they felt about the destruction the recent disturbance has caused. The recent disturbance has caused far too many damages and sources we talk from Addis told us many were really worried if the country will ever see the peace and tranquility they have enjoyed over the years.
