(Bloomberg) - Two members of the Ethiopian opposition were killed this week following the beating to death of a parliamentary candidate from the Semayawi Party, Samuel Awoke, on June 15, opposition leaders said.

Tadesse Abraha, an organizer for the Arena party, which is part of the Medrek opposition coalition, was assaulted on June 16 near the town of Humera, according to Gebru Asrat, Arena’s chairman.

A Medrek member, Berhanu Erabo, died after an attack on June 18, coalition leader Beyene Petros said by phone from the capital Addis Ababa on Saturday.

The incidents come a month after a landslide election victory for the ruling Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front coalition, which extended its 20-year rule over Africa’s second-most populous country. Supporters of the government are responsible for the attacks, according to Beyene.

“They say without supporting ERPDF you cannot survive in the community and we’ll get you,” he said. “This is a threat that’s now being translated into action.”

President Barack Obama should raise human-rights concerns with Ethiopian leaders next month when he becomes the first sitting U.S. leader to visit the country, Human Rights Watch said on Friday.

Good luck with Obama raising such a demand.
Obama is an activist to your white masters (the ones who feed you & control you).

eliA S S at his best. Thinking on his Behind. You need some help man. You are out of your mind. Letting some crazy poor Habeshas comment about the N word on your website is as low as it gets. That was a cheap shot. You are a snake.That was a snake's point of view. You better get your thinking straight or this could bring a back clash on our community if African Americans ended up knowing about it. How the hell don't you understand that ?

Were you on drugs or something? You must have been under some kind of influence when you let this go.This is going out of control. You better go back to you senses or the community has to do some thing about the sate of your mind. Obama's visit to Ethiopia is not only about Ethiopia , it is about Africa in general because AU is headquartered in Addis. After all his visit shouldn't be taken as a big event for woyane as you are trying to portray it for us. He probably wanted to go out there to meet one on one with all African leaders during the annual submit. That is an opportunity for him right there. An opportunity to see them all at once. The notion that Obama doesn't care about African lives and woyane is benefiting from his visit is absurd.You have to start taking a look at the big picture. You don't need to narrow every thing down to your country of birth. The world doesn't revolve around us alone.
