The Tears of Welkait, Gonder and the Amhara People: The Contribution and Plight of the Amhara People in Ethiopian History and Civilization
TEARS OF WELKAIT is a riveting historical account of the atrocities committed by TPLF against the people of Welkait, Tsegede and Setit Humara. Born and raised in Gondar and having direct lineage from Welkait, Fitaye Assegu offers a captivating analysis on the regional conflict. He also presents a comprehensive historical account of Ethiopia's history and civilization from the Axumite Kingdom to the ousted TPLF regime. He presents an in-depth analysis of TPLF's illegal annexation of the two North Western Gondar districts of Setit Humara and Welkait/Tsegede to the Tigray region against the will of the people. He makes a resounding argument for righting the wrong perpetrated by TPLF to preserve Ethiopia as one nation with justice for all Ethiopians regardless of ethnicity.
What people are saying - Write a review
This Book is unique and peculiar to previous literatures excerps subject to Welkait. By that the chronologocal order together with simplicity to contemporary readers take a first-step account. The details inside the Book tries to figure out the historic ties between Amhara and Tigray people. Beyond geographic borderlines that a default sociolinguistic and cultural shares between either groups, TPLF knowingly oppressed and exploited Amhara right at Welkait as a hub to attain venegeance, economic and social gready over the Amhara ethnic group. The writer goes alot around many evidences on how things started, proceed and end up with zero-sum game result.
I suggest readers to have access to the full details of the Book and, understand the full-fledge topics.
