ETHIOPIA CONFIRMS RETURN OF REFUGEES.

Published

on

The Command Post implementing a state of emergency in Ethiopia has said that majority of Ethiopians who fled the country following the army’s killing of civilians in Moyale town have returned to their villages from Kenya.

Over 8,000 civilians crossed into Kenya from Moyale, seeking asylum after a botched military operation left nine citizens dead.

A military team ostensibly dispatched to intercept a banned armed group, the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) members ended up acting on wrong intelligence leading to the incident. Activists, however, held that it was a deliberate government effort to sow insecurity.

The country’s police chief police chief, Assefa Abyou, on Monday told journalists that those who had fled would soon be repatriated.

In the statement announcing the return of citizens that had fled the country, the Command Post also warned that it would take action against humanitarian agencies and media that have been spreading baseless information by inflating the number of people who have fled to Kenya from the area.

“NGOs & media which have either their own or other anti-peace organizations agenda are spreading information that are baseless & far from the truth.”

Ambassador of Ethiopia to Kenya, Dina Mufti, told FBC that it is difficult for all sides to know the exact number of people who have crossed into Kenya from Moyale.

PM Abiy reiterates Ethiopia’s decision over latest clampdown.

Published

on

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has finally spoken on ongoing anti-corruption and rights abuse clampdown stating that there was not going to be any backing down let alone retreat.

A statement from the Abiy’s office issued in Amharic tasked citizens to rally behind the development as a means of ridding the country of lawlessness and criminal elements.

State-affiliated FBC reported that the statement titled, ‘Let’s Fight (the) Cancer,’ said the government was bent on bringing people behind injustices to book.



The statement said the underlying objective of recent arrests was to get rid of Ethiopia criminals. “… criminals do not care about ethnicity, country, or morality; they only care for themselves.

“The key to justice is to create a system for innocent citizens to live in freedom and dignity while criminals are held accountable and punished in accordance with the law,” the statement read in part.

New Zealand denies refusing refugees with holiday visas entry.

Published

on

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, on Friday, rejected allegations that the country’s government was blocking refugees who wished to travel into the country from Nauru on visitor visas.

Nauru’s president, Baron Waqa, also claimed in an interview with Australian media that he had also personally brokered a deal for New Zealand to accept 80 refugees currently located on the island.



“It’s incorrect to say that there is some kind of agreement for 80 specific individuals to take residence or visit,’’ Ardern told media at the East Asia Summit in Singapore.

“The request did not ask about whether refugees could visit New Zealand on holiday visas,’’ he added.

The country is under pressure to transfer the remaining 30 children from the island.
