Ethiopia averts confrontation as party delays plan for new region

HAWASSA/ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (Reuters) – A potentially bloody confrontation between Ethiopia’s federal government and a minority community was averted on Thursday when a political party postponed plans to set up a new region for the Sidama people in defiance of central authorities in Addis Ababa.


  1. Now Tegaru need to establish our own election board institution that will immediately hold a referendum for Tigrai’s secession from Ethiopia .

    If we wait for the Federal government’s election board to hold Tigrai’s referendum , Tegaru is bound to suffer for many many years to come until the Federal government holds our referendum .
    Tigrai cannot wait !
