The Meles regime closes roads to northern Ethiopia
May 13th, 2009 | Categories: Ethiopia
ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA - Following the recent arrest of several
individuals for allegedly plotting to assassinate Meles Zenawi and other
Woyanne regime officials, roads to northern Ethiopia towns have been
blocked and only those with identification cards can pass through the
several check points.
According to Ethiopian Review sources, the Woyanne regime took this
measure to catch more suspects from escaping to the country side and
join the Ethiopian People's Patriotic Front (EPPF).
In recent months, the number of Ethiopians who are joining EPPF has been
increasing as the political repression in Ethiopia by the Woyanne tribal
regime has intensified in preparation for next year's general elections.
The EPPF radio, YeArbegnoch Dimts, has reported about the blocking of
roads to Gondar and Gojjam in its recent broadcast, and Ethiopian Review
has been able to independently verify the news.
