አርቲስቷ ለጋዜጣው እንደገለጸችው፣ በቤቱ መቃጠል እጅግ አስፈላጊዋ የነበሩ ንብረቶችና መተኪያ የሌላቸው ሰነዶች ወድመውባታል፡፡ ‹‹እንኳን የሰው ሕይወት አልጠፋ፤›› በማለት መናገሯንም ሪፖርተር ጨምሮ ዘግቧል፡፡
ለኮርፖሬሽኑ ከሁለት ወራት በላይ ደጋግማ ብታመለክትም ምንም መፍትሔ ማጣቷን ለጋዜጣው የገለጸችው አርቲስቷ፣ ቤቱ በራሱ ጊዜ በመጋል የቧንቧ ውኃ ሳይቀር እያፈላ ሲያስቸግራት ቆይቶ ድንገት በዚህ ሳምንት መጀመሪያ ላይ ሊነድ መቻሉን አስታውሳ፣ ቤቱ በእሳት መያያዙ የማያስገርምና ቀድሞም ቢሆን መቃጠሉ እንደማይቀር በስጋት ይጠበቅ እንደነበር ለጋዜጣው ገልጻለች፡፡

In the first part of this paper, I will present my analysis of forced unity and its consequences. I will argue that unifying ethnic groups by decree has resulted in institutions that are not suited to achieving cooperative agreements among the various groups.

ethnic groups to create a truly united democratic Ethiopia after the departure of Meles Zenawi’s regime.
