Following a visit to Ethiopia’s conflict-torn regions, UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed expressed the “unimaginable” horrors women have faced and called for justice and accountability.

During an interview, in which she shared her experience of her trip to Ethiopia’s Tigray, Amhara, Afar and Somali regions, UN number two described an example of a woman suffering from rape. The worst part was that she was raped in front of her young children, and then her husband ignored her, and her family and society ignored her.

Furthermore, Mohammed stated that “Ethiopian women, writ large, were affected in a way that is unimaginable.”

The conflict between the Ethiopian authorities and Tigrayan revolutionaries began in November 2020, leaving thousands of people dead. However, hundreds of thousands have been pushed into famine as per the UN.

As per Mohammed, in your worst ever nightmare, you can not imagine what happened with the women in Ethiopia, and she said she also faced widespread suffering due to famine.

She argued:

“There is everyone to blame” for these war-fueled horrors, and in the present century “, it’s inappropriate that one human being would do that to another.”

As per the former Nigerian minister, “Justice and accountability have to be had without recognising what legal measures could be taken.”

“When men go to war, and when they come back, and they consider heroes, doesn’t matter any injury that they have, right?” asked Mohammed.

“But women have been injured – injured in a way that is critical, and yet they’re not coming back, heroes. They’re just outcasts. That has to stop.”

Ethiopians are badly divided, and their country is wracked by famine and suffering.

The fight that broke out two year’s back in between the Ethiopian government and rebel Tigray forces could escalate rapidly, observers have stated. In 2021, the UN warned that Ethiopia is at risk of descending into a widening civil war if the fighting in the country’s northern region does not stop.
