Following legal threats and criticisms from Oromia Regional Communication Office regarding the reporting of ethnic violence in Illubabor, Oromia last week by Zami FM and ENN Television, both allegedly linked to the ruling Front, TPLF/EPRDF, the owners of Zami FM responded this morning saying that they will remain steadfast with their reporting and are unhinged by any kind of threat.
The co-owner of Zami FM, Zerihun Teshome, husband of Mimi Sibhatu, also owner of the station also implicitly slagged the officials of the Oromia regional state saying ” Zami doesn’t have a mining ground on our own name or in the name of our relatives. We the owners of the station do not also have Euro Truck vehicles. Zami doesn’t have lands or buildings as big as one or 100 thousand ha. So this one (the accusation that says we are linked to leches that are sucking the blood of the people) steps out of the line. We have not reported anything deceptively.”
