What is the problem if any state evicts a group of Ethiopian citizens from their state to go home???
I do not see any problems, the problem I have is what ground or case do you have they should be stayed in other state???
You may say since they are Ethiopians they can live where ever they want but the problems is Ethiopia itself, that is Ethiopia is not a monolithic or single ethnic country. It is made of a collection of ethnics agreed to live together as a nation and each state or ethnic killils have the right who should live or invest in their state and do business with their people, the law is in the federal constitution agreed upon states and the federal government is being run by a collection of representative of the each states.
The recent Amhara eviction is over due and the Amhara people should say thank you for the Southern nationalities to let them stay for the last 20 years. The Southern people or Somali people would not allowed to live in Bahredar over 20K of them, then why should the Southern let Amhara live in large numbers in their state???
If Amhara is to be evicted from Gojjam or part of Shewa, wollo and Gonder then like myself could have joined to voice for the plight of Amhara people evicted from their own lands.
In my opinion, the Amhara cry right now is not about the 22K evicted from the Southern state but they are trying to avoid the next eviction from Tigray lands, Oromo lands, Benishangule lands. This southern eviction is the first stage phase one, they are so many Amhara live in other ethnic lands and the exoduses will continue to come home, the Amhara home.
Today Amhara eviction from other states is the eviction of Tigray ethnic in Eritrea from Kunama lands, Irob, Afar and other ethnic Eritreans. The Tigray ethnic Eritreans are terrified what is going on in Ethiopia Amhara today and it will be them tomorrow.
