BBC News. Hello, I'm Jerry Smit.

For the first time in more than a century, Ethiopia's largest ethnic group, the Oromo are being allowed to celebrate their annual thanksgiving festival in the capital Addis Ababa. It's usually held in the city of Bishoftu in the Oromia region, but the Oromos claim that Addis Ababa is part of their territory. Kalkidan Yibeltal is in the Ethiopian capital.

一个多世纪以来,埃塞俄比亚最大的民族奥罗莫族首次获准在首都亚的斯亚贝巴庆祝一年一度的感恩节。感恩节通常在奥罗莫地区的比斯霍夫图市举行,但奥罗莫人声称亚的斯亚贝巴是他们领土的一部分。以下是本台记者卡尔科丹•伊博塔在埃塞俄比亚首都的报道。

There is heavy security as Addis Ababa hosts hundreds of thousands for the mass thanksgiving festival. Organizers say the political and cultural repression of the Oromo people, Ethiopia's largest ethnic group by successive governments had forced the festival to be marginalized for years. The move to the capital which is surrounded by the Oromia original state is seen by some other recognition of the Oromo culture by the authorities. However, some say it's an attempt by the ruling party to cultivate popular support ahead of next year's general election.

埃塞俄比亚首都亚的斯亚贝巴部署了大量的安保人员,因为有数十万人在这里庆祝感恩节。组织者表示埃塞俄比亚最大的民族群体奥罗莫族受到了历届政府的政治和文化压迫,迫使这个节日多年来被边缘化。埃塞俄比亚首都亚被奥罗莫地区所环绕,很多人认为此举是当局对奥罗莫文化的认可。然而,一些人表示,这是执政党试图在明年大选前俘获民众的支持。
