Ethiopian Women Lawyers’ Association standing up for kidnapped University students as government seems to think that their plight is forgottenBy Bernabas ShiferawborkenaMay 21, 2020Ethiopian Women Lawyers’ Association (EWLA) has criticized the government for not giving due attention to the case of the 17 university students kidnapped in Wollega five months ago. Some parents had received phone calls from the students after they were kidnapped. The issue garnered overwhelming media attention, and a social media campaign was started demanding for the release of the students. Mrs. Lensa explained that the association has been involved in the matter ever since the government confirmed the news. The appearance of the Corona virus has diverted the public attention from the case of the kidnapped students.
