የባልቻ ልጅ ደራርቱ ጥያቄ አላት (Derartu speaks out against displacement of Oromos in eastern Oromia)

Posted: Onkoloolessa/October 21, 2017 · Finfinne Tribune | Gadaa.com | Comments

The following note was spoken by Dr. Derartu Tulu (one of the greatest long-distance athletes in the world); her heartfelt speech came during her visit of the camps for the displaced Oromos in eastern Oromia. The displacement of thousands of Oromos from their homeland in eastern Oromia was carried out by a TPLF/Woyane-backed militia over the last two months.

Over the last several weeks, fundraising campaigns were held across Oromia to help in the rehabilitation of the displaced Oromos. Among these campaigns was the one held by Oromo artists and athletes in Finfinne; at the event, Oromo athletes, such as Dr. Derartu Tulu, Kenenisa Bekele and others, had donated several hundred thousands of Birr towards the campaign.
