Emergency Decree Update 10-26-16
Two weeks in to the emergency decree Ethiopians are slowly recovering from the initial shock they felt about the destruction the recent disturbance has caused. The recent disturbance has caused far too many damages and sources we talk from Addis told us many were really worried if the country will ever see the peace and tranquility they have enjoyed over the years.
According to our reliable source the decree is helping authorities to restore peace and order. Many of the culprits that were orchestrating the destruction are under arrest but few have yet to be apprehended and are in hiding! Our source told us things are going well beyond the expectation!!
Our source told us PM Hailemariam will announce his delayed new cabinet officials next week. The PM was expected to announce his new officials this week but it is likely to be postponed until next week. Word is unlike OPDO, the TPLF and ANDM, are still struggling to finish their internal process which is dragging the appointments and nominations of the officials by the Prime Minister.
