Keeping the peace of the citizens is the responsibility of the government!

A press release given from Federal Oromo Congress regarding the killing of citizens (KFO)

In the past three years in Oromia region, as in general there are wars and conflicts going on in Ethiopia, killing, displacement and displacement of civilians are the reason for the reason. . Recent guest, June 11 2014 ALI in Oromia region of west Wollega zone Gimbi Tole kebele where armed people were shot and killed in total We have heard it. We have received information that many of the murderers were women and children. When the government accuses Oromo Liberation Army of this mass killing, the armed group complains that they are fueled by government army. But in the middle of this, the blood of innocent people is being painted on.

At different times, the massacre of government and the mass murderers of the government are being recorded on video and released on different media. For example, the forces of Zamacha Minilik who were under the command of the government in Amhara region, special zone of Oromia, Dawawa district, Caffa, Intoli kebele, December 2014 this past week. A ammo people called “shane members” were killed in a car as per evidence Even though the human rights commission cleansing Ethiopia, the action taken is not known. This also shows that the power that is controlling the government is losing power to fulfill the responsibility of the law and the peace of the citizens.

I believe from the heart that there will be no political benefit or victory like KFO. We condemn all the attacks on innocent citizens. We have a strong stand that says that all nations and nationalities living in Oromia should be given full guarantee for the protection of their lives and property. In order to keep the peace of this people, we would like to inform that the Oromia regional government and the federal government should do their duty without saying tomorrow. Oromo people must condemn the killing of innocent citizens living in Oromia region.

KFO is repeatedly calling for all the killings in different places to be cleansed by the people of KFO. All those who participated should be cleansed and made clear to the public; and those who committed the wrong doings should be brought to justice. Our deepest condolences to all those who lost their lives and those who were affected by the attack. We remind you that immediate measures will be taken to calm and rebuild those survived the attack.

In addition, the forces who were fighting because of political differences, they have been struggling to solve their problems peacefully, so we request them to hold all discussions.

Federal Congress of Oromo (KFO)
