A new wave of violence in Kamashi zone of Benishangul Gumuz has left more than 70,000 people displaced to East Wollega and West Wollega zones of Oromia region according to a statement made by the Oromia Region Government Communication Affairs office. People displaced by the violence are seeking for immediate food and non-food assistance. Reportedly, more than 20 people were killed due to the ongoing violence. As the number of displaced continues to grow, the Oromia Region Disaster Prevention and Preparedness Office is working to find the actual number of the displaced and needs associated with it. The recent clash was triggered by the killings of four high ranking Benshangul Regional State officials on 26 September along the Ghimbi-Kamashi route (in Oromia near the regional boundary). The officials were heading back home after attending an inter-regional security meeting between Oromo and Benshangul regional states. The Oromia Regional Government will dispatch a team (on 02 October) to assess the situation. Humanitarian partners are also monitoring the situation and will continue to work with the Government in assessing the needs and providing assistance. Global Alliance donates ETB 13million in support of Burayu IDPs Global Alliance for Rights of Ethiopians (GARE) has donated ETB13 million (approximately US$465,000) to support people displaced by the recent violence in Burayu and surrounding areas. On 29 September 2018, Mr. Tamagn Beyene, Chairperson of GARE, presented the donation to Mr. Damene Darota, Deputy Commissioner of the National Disaster Risk Management Commission (NDRMC) at Taytu Hotel. GARE mobilized the money from Ethiopians living abroad. During the event, a bank account opened to mobilize resource for the Burayu IDPs was also launched by the committee established to mobilize resource and run the Burayu IDP response.
