The June 29 murder of Ethiopia’s singer Hacaalu Hundessa sparked demonstrations across Addis Ababa and other cities. In the violence that followed, at least 160 people died and thousands were arrested. One week after the singer’s death, authorities announced they had arrested two suspects who they said confessed to the murder. Africa 54’s Managing Editor Vincent Makori spoke with Henok Gabisa, co-chair of the International Oromo Lawyers Association, who said he believes the alleged killers’ confessions may have been coerced.
