    Uhuru Kenyatta: Violence and bullets won’t solve Ethiopia’s problems.

    Published on

    Former Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta has said that the use of violence, including the use of firearms, is not the answer to the problems facing Ethiopia.

    Uhuru told reporters in Pretoria that political dialogue is the best way to find a long-term solution after a peace agreement was struck between the Ethiopian government and Tigray rebels.

    He also stressed the need for parties involved in the conflict to learn to work together in order to preserve Ethiopia’s and Africa’s shared identity and unity despite their disagreements.

    An agreement for a “permanent cessation of hostilities” was inked this past Wednesday between the Ethiopian government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

    “We have decided to put an end to the two-year battle in northern Ethiopia by permanently silencing the weapons. Tragic losses of life and property have resulted from the battle, and it is in the best interests of all Ethiopians to put an end to the fighting once and for all.” Reads a portion of the agreement.
