Abstract:The Oromo of the region of Harerge (Ethiopia) were the first to fall under foreign colonial domination. In 1875, Egyptian forces captured the walled city of Harer and occupied it for the next decade. Their advent brought them into conflict with the Oromo of Harerge. Though the Egyptian occupation lasted only ten years, it was long enough to cause tremendous destruction to the Oromo democratic heritage and way of life. This article briefly discusses Oromo democracy in Harerge before the Egyptian occupation; looks at the impact of the Egyptian occupation on Oromo society; and assesses the prevailing condition of the Oromo in Harerge at the time of the Egyptian departure.
