(by EthioTime) Prime Minister Hailemariam Dessalegn in a half-hearted approach announced that his rule will take merciless measures once again.
However Hailemariam tried to be as bold as he could towards the latest tension in Ethiopia on his statement opened only for state run media mainly EBC, last night, many are still labeling his words of no value at a time.
People are being reported for having said that this statement would rather fuel the current protest against the rule in the country.
The Prime Minister in his speech claimed that the protest against the government is being fueled by anti-government group funded in pack of money. Despite his this address to the public it has been reported that grievance have continued in parts of Amhara region.
However he didn’t mention Egypt exactly as source of the fund for the opposition group, he said “the longstanding enemies of our country who do not want us to use our natural resources are conspiring to weaken and dismantle the country with massive funding to ‘extremist diaspora’ group”.
At this point he has ordered all security personnel to take merciless measure against anyone who are believed to involve in this process.
Seen while speaking at the national television Hailemariam has displayed indifference in some of his points especially while warning for merciless measures to be taken against the protest.
His last night statement seems to reflect that the ruling party is not ready to accept the public grievance coming from multiple socio-economic burden in the East African country. Analysis fear this warning would rather aggravate the situation by promoting the mass protest to a higher bloodshed.
The Prime Minister also said that his party is in renewal while he promised for more package of job for the youth.
