I am deeply saddened by the loss of our people. All those who were killed and wounded are our beloved Ethiopian family member. My deepest sympathies go out to their family. May my condolences bring their comfort and may my prayers ease the pain of this tragic loss. May God give the peace that the family seek.
I condemn the ethnic violence, ethnic extremism and call on all our people to restrain from all forms of violence.
I call on prime minister Abiy Ahmed to take action and ensure the protection of all our citizens
This is our chance as the people of Ethiopia no matter what position we are or are not in. You can change and become part of our society that paves the way to a better future or we can give up the moment through collective passivity.
As we look at our ancient land, we are reminded that the blood that flows through our veins and nourishes our bodies also connects us to each other as one people through our ancestors, even those beyond our regions and borders
