In a statement on Wednesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta expressed concerns that after one year, “the crisis has not abated and has in fact deteriorated”.
”The fighting has continued, the deaths have accumulated, the displacement continues, the deaths have accumulated, the displacement persists, and suffering and humanitarian emergency have taken root in the country,” President Uhuru said, calling on Ethiopians to unite and resolve the current crisis in their country.
“As an original founder of United Nations, Ethiopia has insured many nations and people to seek freedom, promote liberty and independence while standing up to colonialism, imperialism, and other forms of exploitation,” Uhuru said.
