The Afar region is NOT called Ethio-Afar region to point out that it is in Ethiopia. Neither is the Tigrey people's region is called Ethio-Tigrey to point out that it is in Ethiopia same goes for the Oromo and all the other ethnic groups regions ONLY the Somali region and people have affixed the word 'Ethiopian' in its name.Because somalis have fiercely opposed Ethiopianisn and Ethiopia nationalistic agenda. And it was because the Somali republic interfered allot from.1960 to 1988 in the politics of somali galbeed socially politically. For decades Ethiopia had problem with kilil 5 region the successive amhara kings menelik and selassie. To transform Somalis into.Ethiopian was a difficult task.
