Who has been arrested for the murders of 6 Djiboutians in Dire Dawa? Or 3 Tegarus in Tana Beles? Or dozens of Sidama/Wolayta in Sodo/Awassa? Or 100s of Oromos/Somalis in Chinaksen/Moyale? Or dozens of Amharas in Benishangul?
Answer: nobody & noone.

Add to the list the murdered in Jijiga and murdered Gedeo. In nearly all of these incidents, there are a plethora of eye witnesses, trails that lead directly to suspects, in some cases photographic and video evidence. It doesn't require much searching to lock up perpetrators.
There are those who are trying to use what happened in Shashemene to slam the federal kilil system, or the Qeerroo. Lots of politically motivated mudslinging.
The federal government has be blamed for its ridiculously lazy approach to pursuing justice. All the horrific incidents I listed occurred recently. No concrete action, no investigation, no policies to root out radicalism that pushes people to take up arms against each other.
It's ridiculously easy to nab some of the perpetrators. Most of the idiots who took part in these atrocities felt invincible enough to let themselves be recorded, photographed in the act. Facebook has a boat load of such images that can easily lead to the identification of many.
Many* of the idiots...
Hugs and peace ceremonies can only go so far. The pomp and festivities will not lessen the pain of loss or perhaps the desire to respond in kind as retribution. With its negligeable approach, the feds are currently laying the framework for reprisals, fomented hate and more death.
Before another one of those populist symbol laden euphoricAbiy rallies...let's organize several rallies in Addis Ababa (only place you can be heard sometimes) demanding accountability, answers. This one cannot be blamed on "woyane."
