THE ABAA GADAA

 

The Gada System is a traditional system of governance used by the Oromo people. This system regulates political, economic, social and religious activities of the community dealing with issues such as conflict resolution, reparation to name a few. It serves as a mechanism for enforcing moral conduct. Here the Abaa Gadaa, known as "Father of Gada", is elected to the highest authority of the Gada System to enforce that governance.
