In an exclusive interview with Tigrai TV, Dismas Nkunda, CEO of Atrocities Watch Africa, highlights significant discoveries from the “Ethiopia Watch: CSO Monitor Report.”

A newly released monitoring mechanism has revealed disturbing evidence that the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement (CoHA) reached eight months ago between the Ethiopian Federal Government and Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) is marred by significant gaps impacting the protection of civilians.

The monitoring mechanism, which is the creation of a coalition of regional and international civil society organisations, has published its findings in a report entitled Ethiopia Watch: Civil Society Monitor of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement. The report collects and analyses data from both private and public sources, creating a comprehensive, and independent, assessment of the African Union-brokered peace deal.
