In the past few years, Ethiopia has been hit with waves of protest all over the country. Civil uprising and protracted war against the regime led to the deaths and imprisonment of thousands. One of the main regions that were rocked with protests is the Amhara region. The Amhara people have been protesting demanding the government to answer their identity question of Wolkait and Tegede, a region that Tigray supposedly snatched from Gonder region after Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) took power in 1991. Even after the appointment of prime minister Abiy Ahmed the people claim that their question has not been answered and violence has been erupting in some parts of the region. Recently, thirty houses and nine local mill houses were destroyed in Gonder city. The region's police commander Enyew Zewde said that the police are still looking for suspects. In another news two children lost their lives and six others were injured when a hand grenade they found near their school detonated.
