Subject: - Human Rights Violations in Sidama, Southern Ethiopia 
The Sidama people live in Southern Ethiopia. According to the Ethiopian Government’s 
official statistics, the current population of Sidama is 3.4 million (independent estimates 
suggest that the current total population is above 5 million). The Sidama nation had a long 
history, vibrant culture and democratic systems of governance based on traditional 
Kingships and various democratically elected traditional councils of elders. This traditional 
system of governance was disrupted following the forced annexation to the Ethiopian 
Empire in 1891. Since then the successive oppressive regimes have subjected the Sidama 
people to untold economic exploitation, political marginalization, underdevelopment, 
poverty and basic human rights violations. 
The current regime which took power in 1991, after toppling the military-cum-socialist 
dictatorship of the late 1970s and 1980s, promised to uphold the rights of over 80 nations 
and nationalities in the country by instituting ethnic based federal system where each nation 
and nationality is granted constitutional rights to administer their own affairs. 
The 1995 Ethiopian constitution ratified under the current regime appears to be the most 
liberal, and for the first time guaranteed on paper basic human and democratic rights 
including the most radical proposition in article 39 of the rights of nations and nationalities ተጨማሪ ለማንበብ ከታች ያለውን ሊንክ ይጫኑ
