 Dear Ethsat Editor,

Thank you for your hard work in informing Ethiopian Diaspora and further. The reason of this email is in order. 

It's to let you know my utter disappointment after I've watched your purely one-sided today's News about the ongoing turmoil in Sidama region where Sidama  people are crushed for several decades without their will under the name of the direction 'South' being regarded as an objects not a people. I'm saying this simply because you have reduced Sidama people's bigger quest for regional autonomy as a simple conflict between Sidama and Wolayta- both of whom are under the tyrannical rule of dictator Melses Zenawi's regime. I expect your views to be an independent. I also expect you to reach both parties where Sidama people are also be able to reflect their views and opinions about what is going on in their own soil and their own town. 

Don't forget that Hawassa belongs to Sidama people!! Period!! However, this doesn't mean that Sidama lives alone by itself which never happens. Equally, it doesn't mean that Sidama people must be reduced to a second citizenship in their own soil which your approach reflects- your informers attitudes justifies my claim. You didn't address the issue I've raised above since last week for the reason I don't know and won't be able to justify from the journalists who live in the Western democracy. 

Last week, your informer from Sidama capital (Hawassa) clearly mentioned that 'both Sidama's stance as well as the regime's plot to deprive Sidama people of their constitutional rights to regional autonomy' doesn't help 'us' according to him. I don't know what did he mean by 'us' nor your journalist independently quizzed him to explain further about this. By default, your journalist was supporting the stance of your informer from Hawassa and tacitly agrees that the Sidama people became threat to others (non-Sidamas), which is not Sidama people's character. Our ways of life doesn't allow us to behave in such manners as claimed. As we (Sidamas) staunchly protect our rights as we did in the past and are doing so- we equally respect others' rights including who live amongst us!! Thus, your propaganda is totally wrong and misguided for which we need urgent corrections. 

By the way do you know from all southern as well as most Ethiopian who attacked almost all land lords from the first to third year of Derg's regime (1974-1976/7)  under the slogan of 'Chekuagn Neftegna'; the Sidama people were the only ones' that culturally harboured them and advised the nation's entire population not to do any harm to any person who lived among the Sidama people simply because the Sidama people culturally doesn't believe attacking people who lived with them and understand that the time is the judge by itself and revenge is not acceptable in Sidama's noble culture. Equally Sidama people never surrender to intimidation, killings and imprisonment. Thus, your one-sided propaganda neither reflects the whole truth about the Sidama quest for regional autonomy that was accorded to the nations whose population is 15 times smaller than theirs; remember Adere (killil 13)

Therefore, I strongly urge you (the editors) to unconditionally stop blackmailing Sidama people who are asking their legitimate and constitutional rights  to regional autonomy for which over 69 confirmed Sidama people sacrificed their precious lives 10 years ago and hundreds were wounded. I also advise you not to downgrade Sidama people's bigger quest to a minor conflicts between Sidama and Wolayta peoples simply Ethnic wolayta cadre has and is playing the ugliest games against the Sidama peoples' rights and ordered the previous Loqee massacre of the Sidama civilians. Hailemariam Desalegn doesn't represent the whole Wolayta and Sidama people clearly knows this; thus, if there are exceptionally minor incidents (on which the Sidama elders are taking corrective actions currently) doesn't reflect the whole picture Sidama people are raising, and none of ethnic Wolayta people died since the incident as you've claimed in your today's news. 

I think we Sidamas as others Ethiopians deserve equal treatment and independent coverage from liberated Diaspora's- at least. As an independent journalists whose ethos is informing public without prejudice, I expect you guys to discuss the whole issues about why the south nations about 56 various who are brought together to be ruled easily are the matter of silence in the 21st century? Do you dare doing that in addtion to the fact I've discussed above? If you do so, the healing and genuine reconciliation process actually automatically starts and genuine unity to overthrow Meles's regime materialises.  

Sincerely yours,

There are reports of heightened fear in Sidama Zone following the conflict in Aleta Chuco town two days ago. There are reports of student demonstrations and road blockades in Tula town 10 KM outside of Awassa. Government workers were denied passage to do their field work in the surrounding towns.

The students who are believed to be ethnic Sidama are stopping cars and asking ethnic Wolaitas to come out. Two ethnic Wolaitas are so far reportedly killed inside of Awassa referral hospital as of today. The news of the two killed at the hospital have inflamed Wolaitas and many fear could ignite ethnic conflict. Our reporter who has been traveling in the area said businesses at the outskirts of Awassa town are closed since two days ago. There is a huge presence of Federal Police in Awassa and its environs. A lot of fliers are circulating in Awassa and the surrounding towns. ‘Awassa is being sold to Wolaitas!’, ‘Let us save Awassa!, come out to protest and resist the takeover!’ are some of the contents of the fires our reporter managed to get hold of.

Many believe, the accusation that ‘Awassa is being sold to Wolaitas’ is believed to be connected to the perceived influence ethnic Wolaitas have in the state and the federal government. Hailemariam Desalegn, the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Ethiopia, is ethnic Wolaita and was administrator of the regional state for a long while before he moved to the federal government.
In the recent conflict the number of dead has increased to 4. Shops, schools, and government offices are still closed in the city.

Ethiopian federal government officials and political leaders from Sidama Zone has been engaged in a lengthy and often contentions negotiation to put the Awassa City administration under the federal government.
Our reporter’s effort to talk to comments from federal authorities didn’t succeed.
