Engineer Yilkal Getnet, former chairman of Semayawi Party, is one Ethiopia’s strong politician actively working these days. He has been voicing his opinion on critical national issues. Recently, he criticized the Ethiopian government on doubts of whether the party is working for or against Ethiopia’s unity. The government is currently facing a number of problems from different sectors related to economic, internal displacement, safety, and security, human and democratic rights, and more. The reform launched by PM Abiy Ahmed has been facing challenges for quite some time, and the attempted coup d’etat on June 22, 2019, has left bitterness on either side.
