Ethiopia’s transition is dead, dialogue vital – Payton Knopf, Deputy to US HoA Envoy Jeffrey Feltman

“We have seen a really fundamental shift in the security and political environment in Ethiopia, the most fundamental shift since the Prime Minister came to power in 2018 that has involved the escalation of violence, substantial closing of political space, and a number of other issues that have called into question the reform agenda. Ethiopia’s transition as originally envisioned when Prime Minister Abiy came to power is really dead. Every major opposition figure or voice of dissent against Abiy is now in prison, and that is really the opposite of what we want to see.”

Payton Knopf, Deputy to US Envoy for Horn of Africa Jeffrey Feltman. Knopf is part of the delegation currently visiting Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Sudan.

  1. Abiy and Isayas have gone beyond dictatorships. They are true butchers and enemies of the people, with potential insanity. The only to a peaceful act to that empire is (1st) remove Eritrea from military interference in Ethiopia ASAP (2nd) remove Abiy and re-instate federal states (regions) with people’s chosen governments for their respective federal states (3rd) go around the table and discuss of confederation can work, (4th) Utilize article 39 and stablish sovereign countries based on people’s choices. Bring Abiy with associates and Isays to an international criminal’s court without any further delay. If not, Abiy is on his last resort and will definitely unleash his nations and nationalities extermination.
