The 1st question is why a federal system – for peace and stability
2nd if federal, ethnic or regional? – this about how to organise the population and administer territories
Have you ever seen any map for a regional federation in Ethiopia? Any study? NONE what soever!! Why? – 1.there is lack of open and democratic discussion 2. there is no serious, comprehensive and detailed study of options except opposing woyane ethnic federalism for the sake of opposing it!!
In public, woyanes claim Ethnic Federalism has "saved" Ethiopia without giving out any details of what the danger was to the country, or by whom, when they came to power in 1991. In private, they call it an "insurance policy" in the event that the TPLF regime senses imminent danger of collapse or overthrow, at which time they can invoke article 39 of the constitution and legally secede from the Ethiopian union ahead of the avalanche.
Judging by recent woyane provoked events in the Afar region of Ethiopia, I like to think it's the latter. The reason I don't buy woyane's claim that "Ethnic Federalism has saved Ethiopia" is simply because I don't believe for a second that the country was in any danger of disintegration following the fall of the Derg regime, and there were also NO indications to suggest that Eritrea's secession posed the threat of Ethiopia's fragmentation.
To use a simple analogy, what would your reaction be if a car salesman from Adwa insists that you replace your garage by demolishing the entire $800,000 home in order to accommodate the bigger car, worth $30,000, he wants to sell you ?
The International Crisis Group (ICG) on its 2009 report on Ethiopia warned woyane's policy of Ethnic Federalism is potentially explosive. It wrote :
- "... you know what destroyed the USSR and Yugoslavia? False federalism and false elections. The real danger in Ethiopia is false federalism and false elections..."
