Protection of Pastoral Women and Civilians from the Pernicious Work of Woyane Soldiers in Ogaden
Ethiopia has been established and connected with wars by extremists, terrorists, radicals and socialists from Abyssinia (Amhara & Tigray) ethnic group (e.g. Minilik, Haile-Selale, Haile-Maryam, and currently Meles Zenawi, etc). Evidence shows that, Ethiopian people have suffered from this bad governance system, which contributed to the current humanitarian crisis, and absence of the rights and freedoms of the people in the country. Indigenous people (pastoralists from Afar, Ogaden, Gambella and Oromia live under inconceivable harsh conditions. The root cause of the humanitarian crisis and political instability in Ethiopia is due to the arrogance and tyrannical attitudes of the highlanders (Abyssinian) rulers against other ethnic groups in the lowland / pastoral areas.
Currently, the Ethiopian army forces have engaged in a gang rape incident in different villages of Ogaden region. The Victims were four young girls and older women. The reports confirmed rape spree by the Ethiopian armed forces that recently deployed in the area. Same things “rope of women by Ethiopian soldiers” have been reported in Oromiya, Afar and Gambella regions. This means, this is part of Woyane government’s dirty policy and strategy to spread diseases and disasters in the pastoral areas of the country. This kind of behavior has been trendy for the Woyane administration for a long time now , recently they are losing hope the Ethiopian people can't stand Woyane anymore and they are doing this out of frustration and anger , It's sad but what can you do to someone who has no conscious.
Since 2007, humanitarian interventions were affected by restriction of UN and NGOs operation in the region. Violence, displacement and access problems have threatened lives of the civilians in the region. UN and NGOs have reported humanitarian crisis in the region, denied access to the region and asked the government to allow humanitarian actors to provide assistances to the people who are facing an increasingly desperate situation. But, Ethiopia government refused any solution and continues restricting humanitarian assistance to the needy people in the region while using little food aid that gets through as a political weapon aimed at collectively pastoral community. In the past four years, the government closed operation of 60 NGOs in the SNNP and Somali (Ogaden) regions, and arrested their staff without trail.
Ethiopia Government bans trade and also blocked aid going to the needy people in the Ogaden region, but gives special privileges “duty free to purchase food from Somalia) to the officials and their families (i.e. Abdi-Iley, Abaye Tsehay, army, and also security and militia officials, etc). The Woyane band sells it in Degahbour, Harar, Dire Dawa, Makale and other towns in the highlands. There are theft and organized looting by the Woyane officials and their families in the main towns of the Ogaden region. In the current mass detention in the region, the Woyane officials and militias have arrested most of the business people and looting their business without trail.
Therefore, the international communities should protect the pastoral women from the Woyane crimes,d stop Woyane crimes and organized thefts and looting by the Woyane officials and their families in the Ogaden region, and also take the Woyane officials to the ICC. In addition, the Ethiopian people should take actions against this dirty work of Woyane in the pastoral areas of the country.
