Human Rights Abuses Committed by the Ethiopian Army in Different Parts of Ethiopia
OMRHO presents the state of Human Rights in Ethiopia since the incumbent group came to power. To enable the reader to comprehend the extent of brutality committed on the people by the Ethiopian Government, OMRHO tries to show the diverse methods of inhumanity exercised on the people. The atrocity encompasses extra-judicial killings, mass detentions, arrests without court warrants, burning people live in their homes, burning properties including farmers’ crops on the field, illegal confiscation of private properties like coffee beans ready for markets, sexual abuses on minors and housewives, etc..
This Report claims by no means a complete coverage of Human Rights abuses in the Empire as:
- people are detained in military camps and in hidden places as opposed to official prisons,
- arrests and detentions are arbitrary and without court warrants,
- relatives get no information as to where their imprisoned relatives are,
- relatives asking for their relatives face dangers of arbitrary arrests, abuses etc.. and
- lack of access and capacity to cover comprehensively.
For the sake of technical ease, OMRHO structures the report so as to make the atrocity as well the spatial distribution comprehendible.

Exra-Judicial Killings in Central Oromia
23. Arbitrary Killings on October 23 and 24.2019 in Ambo Town
There were peaceful demonstrations held on October 23 and 24, 2019 in Ambo. Although the demonstrations were peaceful, the police shot over 70 people.
The following report is just a highlight as this information is only limited to those victims brought to the Ambo General Hospital. So, this report neither includes victims referred to other Hospitals, those getting treatment in various private clinics and Health Centers in Ambo nor those died later. We present names supported with Photos where we have and only names where we have no photos.
Mr. Morodaa Moosaa, age 80, was killed on 24.10.2019 in Ambo town. Morodaa Mossoaa is one of the age seniors in Ambo town. As he was on his way home, he saw a young boy being shot by the police lying soaked in blood. Morodaa was struggling to stop the bleeding and lift the victim up. While he was at such engagement to fulfill his humanely and fatherly duty as a senior in the community, the Ethiopian police shot and killed him on the spot inhumanely.
Morodaa is known for his humanitarian engagement in the community. With the assistance of some German friends he runs a Kindergarten in Ambo town. Besides, Morodaa runs a Primary School in collaboration with some friends.
Mr. Morodaa lived successive repressive Ethiopian systems from The Monarchy across the military dictator to the present under harassment. In the 1970s, he spent around five years in prison in Ambo without being served justice. Now, the self claimed transformers of Ethiopia killed him.
25. Further, the following eight(8) people were killed on October 23 and 24, 2019:
(2)Isheetuu Alamuu ,
(3)Yoo Obsan Oliiqaa,
Biqilaa Sirna, Alyamayyo Olhiqsa and Balay Allasaa(9th grade and age 16) were killed on 24.10.2019. Alamayyoo Olhiqsaa is from Tokkee Kuttaayee while the other two are from Ambo town.

II) Cases of Rape
It is not seldom that we hear and receive reports on Rape. The Ethiopian army rapes its citizens by forcing the victims. According to some reports we received, the victims include girls from age 13 to housewives and pregnant mothers. Raping is part of the moral warfare waged by the Ethiopian repressive army to dehumanize the subjects. On the other hand, raping is a reflection of moral bankruptcy on the part of the system. We present some names of the victims as follows.
Gujii: Soorilee Waaccuu sub-district: 5/2/2019 & 6/2/2019
Baachoo Warq-Hageenyaw, age 13
Ushee Shibbiruu, house wife and pregnant
Taammiree Gammadee, age 15
Haannaa Dasta, age 17
Beezaa Immush, Age 18,
Gaannat Magaarsa, a mother of two children
Burtee Kasaaye, a mother of four children
Qilleensoo Mokkonniisa Village: 26/03/2019
Saaraa Asafaa: she works in a restaurant owned by Mekonnen Gobana. Several armed military men alternatively raped her. As a result, her life was under a critical situation as we received this report.
Destructions of private Property aimed at Impoverishing Subjects
We recieve reports that the Ethiopian Army burns houses, grain and coffee stores, farmers’ fields before crops are harvested, confisicates sereals, Coffee beans ready for markets, cash money and Jwellery, etc.. According to the report we recieved, here are some documented facts as to what the Ethiopian Army is is doing on civilian citizens in the Southern Oromia, Gujii Zones.
Qarsaa Village: The houses of Hadaa Duubee and Roobaa Hadaa (father and son) were burned with all property they have. Here are some more examples with coresponding villages and number of houses destroyed:
|Booree Obbii village: 4 houses||Gaalee Daagataa village: 5 houses|
|Mallayaayaa Karroo village:10 houses||Roojjii village: 9 houses|
|Burii Ejeersoo village: 74 houses||Magaadoo Baadiyyaa village: 3 grain Mills 50 houses|

|Gaalee Daambii village: 9 houses||Sabbaa Guduubaa village: 20 houses|
|Sawweenaa village: 35 houses|
|Qorcaa Daalatti village:35 houses|
In Shaakkiso sub-District alone, there are around 241 houses destroyed. From this, it is possible to guess as to how many people are homeless and are exposed to poverty as a result.
13/05/2019: Maaxee Boolli village Abbaayyoo Booggaala Beejoo`s 1 house was burned.
Alloonaa village houses of Sheeki Aliyyii and Abdujalil were burned by the army.

III) Arbitrary Imprisonment and Mass Detentions
We present the names of Oromo prisoners we received as follows. This list portrays by no means the complete number of prisoners in the country as:
- people are detained in military camps and hidden places,
- arrests are arbitrary and without court warrants,
- relatives get no information as to where their imprisoned relatives are,
- relatives asking for their detained relatives face dangers of arbitrary abuses, and
- because of lack of access and capacity to cover comprehensively.
Sanqalle Detention Camp
Sanqalle is found some 5 Km West of Ambo. Sanqalle served since the 1960s as a Militia Training Centre. Now, under the incumbent Ethiopian Government, it is serving as a Concentration Camp. Several sources estimate the number of people in this concentration camp to exceed 5000. The detainees are exclusively Oromos from different parts of Oromia.
It is often heard that the detainees are exposed to abject health conditions as a result of malnutrition, bad sanitation, torture, lack of space, etc.
Upon his Nobel Prize Award Ceremony in Oslo, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia said that prisons were empty since he came to power. The reality on the ground tells otherwise.Here follow reports we have with regional breakdown.

IV) Oromo Students assigned to Universities in the Amhara Regional State
The Central/Federal/ Government assigns Students to different Universities in the country. This Academic Institution has been a singular symbol of tolerance and mutual respect for political differences in the history of the Empire. Politically, general common issues ruled the history of Ethiopian Student Movement in the past. Likewise, specific issues regarding a given Nationality were either sympathized with and upheld in common or tolerated. But recent political developments under the current Government show otherwise.
For the Oromo Students assigned to the Universities in Amhara Region, this academic institutions became a center of brutality and terror acts committed on them by Amhara Students.
Oromo Students in the Universities in Dasse, Waldia, Gonder, Bahir Dar, to mention a few, are beaten, stabbed with Knives, thrown from high-storey-buildings down by Amhara Ethnic group. As a result several Oromo Students are killed, wounded, mishandled or died later as a result of the injuries.
Here,OMRHO would like to emphasize that neither the Regional state nor the Central Government showed the willingness to fulfill their role to guard the safety of Oromo Students as citizens. The Central Government should have facilitated evacuating all Oromo students or guarantee their security.
Oromo Students are even denied to withdraw and travel back to their parents. Further, those who managed to escape and reach Oromia are denied the right to register in a similar academic institutions in Oromia. Here we see the interwoven concerted act from the Amahra, Oromia and the Central Government against Oromo Students.No measure is taken to guarantee the safety of Oromo students in all areas where they were attacked. What further makes the mutual understanding between the mentioned three Government bodies overt is that several Oromo students who showed their concern about the victimized students from various Universities in Oromia are either imprisoned or dismissed from respective Universities.
To show what is happening to the Oromo Students in Amhara Region, OMRHO puts some information it received as follows.

Oromo female student in Waldia University
Bulee Horaa & Dirree Dawaa Universities: January 2020
Here is the list of students imprisoned by the central government from Addis Ababa University why they voiced their concerns about the situation of Oromo students in the Amhara Region to Addis Ababa University. They peacefully appealed to the University that it considers the fate of students who managed to escape the onslaught. Sad enough, the information we received on 21.11.2019 reveals that, the University called Police and they were taken the 3rd Police Station. A few of them are as follows:
2. Dirribaa Tolasaa,
4. Isqeel Abarraa,

7. Dassaaleny Biraanuu,

V)The Case of Non-Amhara People in the Amhara Region: the Gumuz and the Qimant People
Gumuz: The Amhara Reional administrative boundary incorporates several indigenous
Peoples who inhabit a significant part of this region. These peoples, habitually called Gumuz, are historically the ancient peoples to this region. As the case is true with millions of indigenous Peoples across the Globe, the Gumuz are the most disadvantaged and neglected People under successive Ethiopian Governments.
On April 25, 2019 trained and armed group from the Amhara Region raided Dangur area and massacred many people including children. Here are some pictures posted on various mass media.
Here one sees brutally butchered children on the botom part of the picture and a slogan vowing ” we will repeat the history of our fathers “.
The Qimant and the Agawu People
The Qimant and the Agawu people inhabit a significant part of North and Northwest Amhara Region of Ethiopia. They are the ancient people to this part of the Ethiopia. As it is put in the Constitution of Ethiopia Article 39 (§3), bothe peoples demanded an internal selfrule and cultural practices. The Amhara Regional state met their demands with harassment and gradually escalated to conflicts. As a result, the regional state imprisoned many ethnic Qimant and Agawu people. The chairman of the Qimant Commitee, Semengewu Ejjigu, was killed on 30.05.2019 in Gonder city(see below). Further, propertis, including live animals were burned down. The Regional government is said to have organized the attackers. Federal Government also remains silent on the whole issue.
Additionally, see the petition formally submitted to the Secretary General and the Office of United Nations Higher Commissioner for Human Rights bellow.
United Nations Secretary General & the OHCHR:
End Genocide against Kemants Now
workuw hat diese Petition an Petition to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and UN Secretary General gestartet.
This petition is a formal request to the Secretary-General & the Office of United Nations Higher Commissioner for Human Rights to take immediate actions to stop the ongoing Kemant Genocide by Amhara Regional Government, under the political support of the central government of Ethiopia. To urge respectfully the UN body to:
1.Investigate the systematic, intentional and deliberate killings, abduction of children, imprisonment and displacement of Agaw-Kemants, as well as, destruction/lootings of their belonging, carried out throughout North Gondar, Ethiopia since 2013 to the present.
Religious Intolerance in the Amhara Region:Ethiopia as an Empire home to over 80 different Nationalities and Ethnic Groups, is also home for various beliefs and confessions. No recent history of the Empire marked religious conflicts. If there is anything Ethiopia is praised for, it is the tolerance and respect for mutual religious affairs. However, a recent situation we witnessed in the Amhara Region is an alarming one. Leaving other separate damages Mosques experienced in some Amhara areas, burning 4(four Mosques) in the town of Mota, Amhara Region, has caused rage and an alarming sense of hostility in the country as well as outside the country. Here is one of the of burning Mosques surrounded by the chanting mob.
Very scary is that the police of the Regional Administration looked at the perpetrators passively. Burned were not only Mosques but private shops and hotels belonging to Muslims were selectively damaged and robbed.
The Human Rights situation in Ethiopia has already moved from bad to a worst stage. The positive gesture we saw from mid-2018 to the end of 2018 has withered away. For the people who demand the right the constitution granted on paper, it has become a night-mare.
Especially, the Oromo People are the most targeted part of the people in the Empire. Oromia is under the Military Command Post. Civil administration is already overtaken by the military. Extra-judicial killings, arbitrary arrests, rape, looting of property of farmers by the Army are day-to-day practices. In addition to imprisonments, mass detention is becoming dominant government activity.
As a result of burning farmers’ villages and what they have labored on the field by the Ethiopian Army, tens of thousands of people are either internally displaced with exposure to man-made hunger or have left for neighbouring countries as refugee.
Academic institutions, like Universities in the Amhara Region, have already become compounds where Oromo students are selectively killed and beaten. The security forces assigned to the universities look the episode passively. The Regional and Central Governments also kept silent.
OMRHO worries that the situation in Ethiopia further worsens and becomes out of control. To deter this worrisome situation, the role of countries Donor Organizations having ties with Ethiopia is immense. We appeal to such Governmental and Non-governmental Organizations to engage the Ethiopian Government.
