  • Oromo are from southern Ethiopia and are Muslim. They occasionally want independence and are one of the biggest ethnic groups of the 80+ in Ethiopia.

  • All oromos are not muslims. Probably muslims are 50% of the entire oromo population. The west, south west and central part of the region (Oromia) are all christians.

  • Some Oromos, in particular members of the Oromo Liberation Front, have been “fighting” for self determination. although the Oromos have been a part of the Ethiopian regime under the current Prime Minister, they have mostly broken off to continue their struggle for independence.
