COMMENTARY ON THE DRAFT PROCLAMATION OF SPECIAL INTEREST OF STATE OF OROMIA IN ADDIS ABABA CITY 

This commentary by Betru Dibaba is first published on Abyssinia law website. Here is the introductory excerpts from the blog; and the full corpus is available following the the link, as attached. 


​This commentary is intended to highlight the omissions, silences and misinterpretations of the draft proclamation assuming that the Parliament will reconsider it when it reconvenes. It is presented as a critique of specific provisions that defined the special interest in a manner that contradicts the intent of the constitutional provision or in such ambiguous ways that it would make implementation difficult. My commentary on the provisions of the daft proclamation flows from the following three premises:

  • Addis Ababa is not a member of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. 
  • Addis Ababa has always been historically, geographically and legally an Oromo City that happens to be a metropolis.
  • Special interest is a prominence given to a totality of the ownership right and power of Oromia and the immunity and privilege of the People of Oromo Nation over Addis Ababa City.
