More than 80 people have been killed in two days of unrest in Ethiopia following the killing of prominent singer Hachalu Hundessa. The year-old had emerged as a powerful political voice of the Oromo ethnic group, and had made many enemies during his musical career. Two suspects were arrested after he was shot dead while driving in the capital, Addis Ababa on Monday evening. However, police have not yet revealed a motive for the killing and no charges have been brought against the suspects. A former political prisoner who grew up looking after cattle, Hachalu rose to become one of Ethiopia's biggest music stars, mesmerising fans with his songs about romance and political freedom - topics that he easily blended into his lyrics. Hachalu's father, who used to work in the electricity department in the city of Ambo, aspired for his son to become a doctor, but he showed little interest in medicine. However, from an infant, Hachalu showed a passion for music and singing, with the encouragement of his mother, while he looked after cows on the family's farmland on the outskirts of Ambo in the Oromia region, the heartland of Ethiopia's largest ethnic group, the Oromo. One of eight children, Hachalu was born in in Ambo - a city about km 60 miles west of the capital, Addis Ababa. It was at the forefront of the campaign by Oromos for self-rule in a nation where they felt repressed under a government that had banned opposition groups and jailed critics. His father kept his morale high in prison, telling him during visits that "prison makes a man stronger".
