According to reports from West Show Zone of Ada’a Berga Woreda, A Chinese man who owns the largest share in Dangatte Cement Factory was killed in Reenjii town. Even if no one has yet declared responsible for incident, some have suggested that it might be an expression of anger by local residents due to the deadly impact of the factory on the local people and the environment. Some have also pointed the fact that  the Chinese man was known for his disrespect for the outcry of the local population and trusted only the dictatorial regime on power, which is responsible for the eviction of Oromo farmers from their land and destruction of their livelihood in the name of investment.

But officials have detained local militiamen including a man named,  Birbirsoo Dhaabaa; accusing them of conspiring with OLF (Oromo Liberation Front) or causing the death themselves. It is customary for the Ethiopian authorities to accuse, imprison and/or kill civilians and peoples of all sectors of life on labels of conspiring with the OLF, according to right groups.

In a similar news 15,000 hectares of sugarcane have been set on fire yesterday in Ilu Abba Bora zone of Oromiya region. It is becoming clear more than ever that the impact of land grabbing and countless human right abuse in the largest and most populous Oromiya region of Ethiopia is pushing out of limit and causing unexpected incidents by victims of the system at different time and places. Stay tuned for details coming soon.
