In the town of Harar, a group of migrants from Fedis met in
the main street gave a first impression on the nature of the problem. The people came to the
town on foot because there was “no food at all” in their home areas of Fedis wereda, which is
located south of the urban administrative region of Harari. If help was not forthcoming in
Harar, the people indicated they would walk east on the main highway connecting Harar
through Babile and Gursum to Jigjiga.
