Kinijit Vice President Birtukan Midekesa and a senior leader of the party, Eng. Gizachew Shiferaw, were detained for ten minutes and later released by the Wolyta Zone police.They were returning to Addis Abeba from a successful meeting with Kinijit supporters in Southern region. Another Kinijit operative Lt. Alemayehu Yeneneh who was traveling with them was also detained and released.

According to our reliable source, they were told they were mistaken for people who caused an accident earlier that day. A very typical woyanne harassment.

They will arrive in Addis Abeba later tonight.

The Kinijit delegation led by Birtukan left Addis on Saturday to southern Ethiopia to consult with the party’s supporters.
