Hachalu Hundessa  Ethiopias most loved singer  was shot dead on Monday evening at 9:30pm in Addis Ababa by still unknown gunmen yet previously he came out and said he is facing death threats which has led to protests allover Ethiopia whereby two people were shot dead in the Eastern town of Chiro and another person was injured in Adama town during protestes over Hundessa’s assassination.

Thousands of his fans went to the hospital in the city where the singer’s body was taken on Monday night cause to them he was a voice of his generation protesting decades of repression by the government.

 Throughout parts of Ethiopia, the internet was shut down as the demonstrations began throughout the federal state of Oromia and government buildings have been set on fire by protesters as well as tyres are also being set on fire while the police is using tear gas to disperse the crowds of people protesting.

Hundessa’s songs often focused on the rights of the Oromo ethnic group in the country and became anthems in a wave of protests that led to the former Prime Minister ‘s downfall and he was a voice for the Oromo people cause he talked about the political and economic marginalization under successive Ethiopian regimes that they had suffered.

He sang in one of his most famous songs: “Do not wait for support from outside, a vision that doesn’t come true. Get up, get your horse ready and fight, you ‘re the one near the palace.”

The singer was also jailed when he was 17 for taking part in marches for five years.

Others like him fled into exile in fear of persecution but remained in the country, encouraging the youth to fight.

Hachalu’s body was taken to his hometown  Ambo  about 100 km west of the capital but protesters insisted he was buried in Addis Ababa.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said in a tweet that Ethiopia “lost a precious life today” and described the singer as “marvelous.”

The death of the singer and the demonstrations comes as international tensions grow after the indefinite postponement of elections due to the coronavirus pandemic due in August.

He also put about a number of changes that have changed what was considered a state of great injustice.

He received the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize overwhelmingly for making peace with Eritrea ‘s former adversary but his attempts to change Ethiopia were also honoured.
