A draft proclamation and a concept paper regarding Oromia's special interest in Addis Ababa surfaced online last weekend. HornAffairs published the draft proclamation and a summary at the time.

This draft, if it has passed its initial concept stage, must be discussed in a transparent manner going forward so extremist will not hijack it similar to the Addis Master Plan!The govt needs to handle this matter with care. Hiding or imposing the law at the end will not be helpful!

Thanks Horn Affairs for publishing the Study Paper.
