Att.: His Excellency,
I have the honour to address this letter to you in order to draw your attention to a very preoccupying subject, namely the increasing number of Human Rights violations that take place in
The Ethiopian military actions on the northern Kenyan border have devastating effects on the socioeconomic situation of Northern Kenyan populations that have unjustly been accused of hosting foreign rebels.
The Boorana-Oromo communities allover the world have taken notice of the ceaseless acts of intimidation, oppression and murder, carried out against a great number of innocent Kenyan Boorana Oromos by the Ethiopian security forces alongside the border and on Kenyan territory, in several northern Kenya towns. Similar acts have been also perpetrated in
This act of aggression against Boorana people must be condemned by all peace loving people of
This practice is not new; it has been perpetuated down to our days since the colonial times. Despite the establishment of
The most appalling aspect of these pitilessly executed massacres is that the Kenyan Government decided to cooperate with
Ethiopian has become widely known for turning the entire Horn of Africa to a Hell of fire and war. The Kenyan - Ethiopian cooperation will only tarnish the fair name of Kenya, a country that has been so far considered as a democratic and peaceful realm, impartial is its judgments and supportive of the Cause of African Democracy and Progress.
The unfortunate practice and Ethiopian – Kenyan cooperation leaves me, as Kenyan citizen, with an unanswered question as regards Kenya´s future as an independent and sovereign nation.
* Why does
Simple logic would drive the Kenyan authorities to the conclusion that Northern Kenya´s Boorana Oromos have practically speaking no means to help rebels and OLF fighters. Furthermore, I want to urge you to reconsider with respect to OLF, and realize that the gallant Oromo fighters are not different from any other freedom fighters struggling for the independence of their country.
OLF fighters are indeed quite similar to the SPLA of Southern Sudan and to the MAU MAU of the colonial times´ Kenya; I find this is easy to assess, and I am sure you will share my opinion that it will be very unfortunate to let people think that the Kenyan government can do nothing in respect with the country´s northern territory where Ethiopia assuredly does not want to live Kenyan citizens live in peace.

I call upon our patriotism; your government must stay in control in
Nobody denies that peace or war in any of Kenya´s neighboring countries has a direct impact on Kenyans´ security. That is why I urge you to cancel any anti-Boorana Oromo practice or plans, and to undergo all diplomatic efforts needed, involving negotiations with the OLF. Boosting development in the North will have a great impact on Kenya´s overall economic performance and development.
Ending, I ask you, as a plenipotentiary representative of the President of Kenya, to ensure that the Boorana Kenyan citizens will not face in the future either war or harassment from either internal or external security forces.
I therefore request from your government to attentively handle our grievance so that the Boorana of Northern Kenya community does not suffer anymore at the hands of the inhuman foreign aggressors, namely the rogue thugs of the Tigray/Amhara - led tyranny.
Thanking you for your time and attention,
