Population figures[edit]

It would be nice to have more accurate sources on population figures. I have provided the figures from the Central Statistical Agency on Injibara/Kosober myself, but as someone having lived in Injibara for the last 5 years, I know that these figures are ridiculously low. By my conservative estimate, modern Injibara has at least 20,000 inhabitants in 2006. The inmates of the zonal prison alone would make up 10 % percent of the cited population, not to talk of the countless students of the two colleges, the many policemen stationed there, and the hundreds of government workers of the Zonal and Woreda administration, all with their families... No way this can be reduced to 4000 inhabitants! -- Landroving Linguist 22:13, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

KOSOBER[edit]

Kosober is the other name of injibara.kosobea the name of tree. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.55.74.60 (talk) 10:28, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Kosober is mentioned as another name of the new town in the article. The tree's name is not Kosobea, but Koso. Kosober means 'Koso gate' in Amharic, a naming which is attributed to the emperor when he came that way in 1941 during the conquest of Ethiopia. But there are no sources for this, which is why there is no reference to it in the article. Landroving Linguist (talk) 07:12, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
