Security forces arrested at least thirty seven people in Guji, south Ethiopia in a bid to crackdown on protesters who demanded political and economic justice in the region where poverty runs deep despite the prevalence gold mines and other gems, which are siphoned by the corrupt regime and its close allies.
Reliable sources in Gambella say tensions remain high in Gambella despite attempt by high ranking officials of the federal government to mediate reconciliation between the Anyuaks and the Nuers, the two ethnic groups tangled in a bloody violence over the last couple of months. The sources said five Nuers were killed in the last two days in Abobo and Itang.
The Second Genocide is Being Committed against Unarmed Anuaks Tribe in Gmabella, Southwest Ethiopia by South Sudanese Refugee with Ethiopian Government Approval.
It is with deep sadness that the Ethiopian government once again embarked on carrying out a massive massacre of unarmed Anuaks civilians in Gambella town of south west Ethiopia, using similar killing style of 2003. Unlike the December, 2003 which involved Ethiopian highlander’s civilian, this time, the Ethiopian government used South Sudanese ethnic Nuers to carry out the genocide.
The Nuers who are spearheading the killing of Anuaks are going front, while the Ethiopian military accompany them in the back. Any Anuaks seen carrying traditional weapon such as spear is shot dead by the Ethiopian military forces. In addition, the government ordered all Anuaks in police and special force to be disarmed by the Ethiopian military. Leaving all Anuaks vulnerable to be killed. In this rampage killing, the Nuers refugees are armed with modern weapons such as K-47, garnets, and bombs and allowed to killed Anuaks and loots their properties before burning their houses to ground.
For the last three month, the Governor of Gambella region Mr. Gatluak Tut who by nationality is a South Sudanese Nuers, with the knowledge of Ethiopian government brought many guns to Gambella town from the Sudanese Nuers rebel base of Dr. Riek Machar Teny. These guns are distributed to all Nuers living in Gambella town in preparation to commit such mass genocide-plan. What availed itself on Wednesday January 27, 2016 around 2 A.M and continued up to-today is the execution of such atrocity plan. Clearly, the plan was coordinated and it was a combination of strategic long term plan by EPRDF/Ethiopian government,south Sudanese Nuers, and their rebel leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny to kill all Anuaks living in Gambella town.
Obviously, it was a continuation of the policy of genocide against the Anuaks which began it first implementation in December, 2003.The Ethiopian government can not rest or stop its policy of genocide until all Anuaks are killed and the land is taken by the very government committing the genocide.
The Gambella People’s Liberation Movement (GPLM) strongly condemned this atrocity committed against our people by foreign forces with the support of the Ethiopian government and security organs. We believes such use of foreigners to kill Ethiopian national by the very government supposedly to protect them not only a violation of the country sovereignty and the constitution but also is a violation of international law in the states obligation to protect it own citizens.
Thus, we calls on:
• International community to pressure the Ethiopian government to stop indirect and direct killing of Anuaks civilians;
• To establish independent inquiries to investigate the massacre currently taking place in Gambella;
• On the United States government and the Europeans community to pressure the Ethiopian government to desist from committing current genocide on our people;
• On United Nations and members nations, the African union, in the East African to instruct the South Sudanese Nuer rebel leader Dr. Rieck Machar Teny to immediately stop supplying his Nuers tribes with deadly weapons to be used against unarmed Anuaks civilians and creating instability in Gambella.
• Unconditional remove and transfer South Sudanese Nuers out of Gambella immediately;
• Finally, calls on government of EPRDF to stop it divide and rule politics in Gambella.
