#COVID_SSA Update #Ethiopia - 13 weeks into their 2nd wave. 7,107 new cases last week, one-third⬇️on week 60. So it could be peaking🙏but caution indicated THREAD 1/8 @EPHIEthiopia @abebawfekadu @EthiopianNomad Image
Caution 1 - cases are falling in Ethiopia, but so are the number of tests performed. The test +ve proportion (>20%) remains much too high overall 2/8 Image
Caution 2 - regional data issued by @EPHIEthiopia (latest to 18/4/21) indicates that while incidence *may* have peaked in #Addis it is rising in most other regions (having taken off later) 3/8 Image

Remembering the Anuak Genocide. December 13, 2020 marks the 17th years anniversary of the Anuak genocide that began with the brutal massacre of 424 Anuak leaders and young students in less than three days, but continued for another two years.
On December 13, 2003, members of the TPLF/EPRDF military from the ENDF’s 43rd Division entered Gambella town and killed 424 Anuak.

The video below presents detailed and testimonies of the Anuak survivors
Today we clearly understand that the TPLF/EPRDF’s intent was to take over control of the land and natural resources from the #Anuak and other indigenous people in the #Gambella region.

This is Gilo River in #Gambella region: The “Ever Green” Land Of The “People Of The Rivers.”

This region is known to possess many untapped resources.These include large deposits of gold and other minerals,as well as fertile land,ample water,rivers,forests and abundant wildlife.
In the past 30 years, the people of Gambella have been largely denied or otherwise illegally excluded from the utilization of these resources in their own region.
As a result, they have suffered egregious human rights abuses, forced displacement, politically based imprisonment, especially of leaders, the destruction or loss of land, property and infrastructure, as well as environmental degradation.
