Guji zone OLF’s Commander Jal Elias surrendered

It is to be recalled that following Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's appointment exiled armed opposition parties came back to Ethiopia. One of the major parties amongst them is the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF). There has been a controversy about the party not disarming even after coming home pledging to participate in peaceful political activities.  The disagreements have created instability in the Oromia region. In addition, the government has held OLF accountable for the violence in the region. This week it is reported that Jal Elias, a commander who leads the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) guerilla fighters in Guji zone has surrendered. Following the call for peace by Aba Gadas in Oromia, many OLF commands are entering camps to negotiate with the government. According to Guji’s Aba Gada Jilo Meno, the zone’s Aba Gadas will play as mediator between the OLF commanders and the government.
