From Winning the Nobel Peace Prize to Leading the Country into Intra-state war
      Tsegaye Birhanu
Abstract: Ethiopia is passing the horrendous time of ethnic war where millions are starving, and hundreds of thousands are either internally displaced or fled to the neighboring countries Putting Ethiopia on the edge of disintegration, the honeymoon of Abiy’s administration is over just 2 years after his ascendance to power. This article attempts to shed light on the contemporary humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia. It is based on data collected through interviews and literature reviews from April to July 2021. The rainy season is passing unnoticed in agrarian Ethiopian society where warmongering leaders massively mobilizing civilians to war fronts instead of farm fields. People are changing their plowshares into guns and receiving state-sponsored military training in most parts of the country. This manifestly shows the imminence of more war. In the name of unifying the country, the incumbent regime is in support of expansionist and assimilationist forces in the country. The reported atrocities, ethnic-based massacres, ethnic profiling and harassment, rape of girls and women and massive state-led humanitarian crisis amount to a war crime, making the Nobel prize-winning Prime Minster of Ethiopia a suspect of war crime swiftly in a span of two years. This short article briefly discusses this issue and elaborates what is happening in Ethiopia and how the country can get out of this conflict trap.
