He stated that most of the culprits are under arrest and the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission is investigating human rights violations committed so that measures could be taken.
Federal and regional forces, in collaboration with the active participation of the peace loving public, have controlled and maintained peace and security in the country, the PM noted.
Hailemariam said a taskforce comprised of federal and regional members was established to quickly address the rehabilitation process as soon as possible.
The restoration of the country’s peace and security demonstrates the strong foundation laid on the existing federal system that has ensured unity within diversity of its peace loving people, he stressed.
He urged the public to pursue its strong commitment towards the fight against poverty as peace and stability are secured.
The government will relentlessly fight rent-seeking which is the arch enemy of Ethiopia’s rapid economic growth, Hailemariam emphasized, and added that “it is a fight that we have to sustain until economic transformation is brought about.”
