I am not an Arab we am Ethiopian like we we am unapproachable to be a Muslim, if we had a mind we shouldn’t give a criticism like that blaming all Arabs for what occur to a sister. Cruel, violent criminals have no faith, competition or tone they are all over a universe we should quarrel them as a chairman not as race, faith or as a society. we know your criticism will not simulate as all Ethiopians since we Ethiopians know a disproportion between one chairman a society. They brought a rapist to justice

De Birahan blog contextualized a wide-ranging tellurian right abuse in a nation by giving a minute perspective:
Maids in Ethiopia are mostly women who come to Addis Abeba from a farming to work in civic houses. They live with a people easeful and fed, and paid a small monthly income for their services. They mostly do a cooking, cleaning, washing, all houses chores; ensure a residence during times and also as nannies. Although there exists a symbiotic attribute between a employer and a maid; a intricacies of it shows that it is some-more of feudalistic and elitist. Some could disagree that Ethiopian maids who trade themselves to Arab countries face even a misfortune form of abuse there, so improved that they be anyway here. No “Injustice anywhere, is misapplication everywhere”, in many center eastern countries and Ethiopia maids work prolonged hours, 7 days a week and month, no or occasionally vacations, no authorised chance in a box of feud with their employer. Maids many mostly maids eat leftovers or she cooks special food bad in peculiarity and calm from a rest of a domicile members for herself, sleeps in a apart building and room from a family (service bet). In many cases teenage maids that come from farming areas to assistance themselves and bad families are done to go to dusk category (if ever allowed). They are forced to sex or raped by a group in a domicile (husband, son or relatives).
While many Ethiopian domestic workers group to a Middle East, a Ethiopian supervision has not taken a heading purpose in safeguarding Ethiopian adults fast horrible tellurian right abuse in a region. Social media platforms continue to be a media opening for Ethiopians to demonstrate their views and opinions about tellurian rights abuse of domestic workers.
