a friend the professor of politics at the heart institute for graduate studies. still getting information about what actually happened but it's we certainly know that the killings were in 2 separate areas and i'm horace state and military chief killed in addis ababa in the capital. what do you think happened is it these 2 incidents are related right. yes i think the government's is related and certainly it might turn out that despite the coup against himself because. it so happens that the guy who is accused of leading the coup. assam the city. he was in prison when i became to power for an islet school he was he tried at them to the queen 2009 and he was in prison so be pardoned him and made him chief of security in the region trust him maybe in his in
6:52 pm
his loyalty and the chief of the stuff is from great to grain that ukrainians were. the so-called controlling ethnicity in the in the coalition which was voting at this. until it came to power but it's from the oromo which is the largest nationality city in that your place. and he there was supposed to be an. alliance which was again it's a great the great great is actually at the moment in a separatist movement. it controls itself. that military they have the guys were rolling the opium now. or to meet the great. the federal government doesn't have that much authority so it's
6:53 pm
a complex business complex do you think the what's happened here is that the coup attempt was taking place and i'm hard at the same time they want to kill the military chief to dent the power down in the capital i think they must also have been probably planning insurrections in other regions because an insurrection one region will not be able to defy the federal government and so there must be we have to wait and see what else has been happening who has been planning other things that they certainly is an attempt to roll back the reforms of. bring me be back some of the old guard right because we have met as we were hearing he's brought in a lot of change in reform. you knew the governor of i'm horace state didn't you mention us recently and yes i met actually only last night and what was he
6:54 pm
optimistic was he positive about he was very positive about the future of if you yeah and also africa as a whole because we're also discussing at that time security and progress and peace in africa and so he was very upbeat about about things he was also showing confidence in our minds and the leadership and we were we actually came out from there in a very hopeful mode after we met him actually i don't have to just stay there for a sec because we're going to just speak to our correspondents who's on the ground in addis ababa has some new information joins us from the ethiopia's capital what do you have for us. when we have new information regarding your mccown in the chief of staff and the head of the ethiopian military we now know that he would. killed by his bodyguards it was an inside job and the prime minister is calling those who are responsibly find the mercenaries mckown and isn't particularly important here because he was actually in the process of trying to
6:55 pm
stop the attempted coup that was going on and behead are and then that is when his bodyguards. killed him so he was trying to calm the tensions and behind our had sent the military there to try and stop this too and it was that was when it happened and there was another federal general that was also killed in that attack now the entire the army intelligence general said that the coup was meant to create chaos in division especially in the military he said that the military now though has control over the situation at their command posts around the country that the military is in control with the prime minister obvious met of course over the military he said that there is peace and that the military are in control he is or reiterated that they are not divisions within the military this is particularly important because the 2 generals that were killed in addus are part of the ethnic
6:56 pm
group and the person who we believe is responsible for starting this coup and behead are he's part of the i'm harra group and so that man his name is but so no sorry is samina sygate he we believe is responsible for starting this coup interestingly he was arrested about 10 years ago for starting another coup and when trying minister obvious mad came into office he was actually pardoned and is known across ethiopia as a very pro. leader and so we have all of these different updates coming in about about him and also within but had our in the attempted coup we know that 2 regional leaders. we were killed including the regional the president. and his aides so we had to regional individual health and to federal general health
6:57 pm
care so the tensions are quite high as we're trying to get a better grip of what happened but the military at that that they have control of the situation all right thanks very much earlier. let's go back to our friend here in the studio. exactly what we were saying earlier it isn't yes it does and i think we have no to examine who was behind the killing of the 2 generals decide to take generals. so it's. bodyguards usually would be from their own ethnicity. they must have been infiltrated by or if not if there were if it was an attempt also to try to eliminate that ukraine in the army that's also the significant will most of them would exhibit if nick infighting and i think one of the mistakes maybe of the team
6:58 pm
before. it that it has entrenched this ethnicity into the structure of the state. by trying to just bring it to the open and deal with it i think it has now come to bite all right we'll leave it there thanks very much indeed for that very interesting perspective thank you very much. now the army in the democratic republic of congo has launched an offensive against a group in the town of goo in the east to fighting between tribes left at least $100.00 people dead and hundreds of thousands displaced let's speak to catherine sawyer whose life was joins us from coomber in neighboring uganda where many people have fled. what more do we know about this offensive being launched by the congolese army in the east of the country. well. all the information the latest information we are getting from across the border is coming from the spokesperson of the military who's spoken to al-jazeera and state that they have
