The researcher therefore recommends that functioning local conflict resolution mechanisms
should be given priority, young people facilitated for income generating activities, simple early
warning signs developed and agreed by the community, effective and timely interventions,
establishment of village dialogue meetings, national cohesion and integration commission
intervention, national land policy to heal historical injustices, issue based politics, systematic and
structured learning from the past and political goodwill to resolve historical. Further, the research
recommended that the goverrunent alter its conflict resolution and peacebuilding strategic focus
from one of seeking to deal with symptoms to one of protecting life and maximizing the
protection of properties. Such a change in strategy is important while acknowledging that it is a
state's legal responsibility to protect communities. This shift in strategy may serve to open the
political and social space needed to address negative ethnicity and historical injustices that lie at
the root of the ethnic conflict in Molo District.
