A Cheta was an armed band organized by the mostly Bulgarian, Serbian, Orthodox Christian population on the territory of the Ottoman Empire that undertook anti-Turkish activity. The cheta was usually led by a leader, called voivoda. The members of the chetas were called chetniks.
Cheta is one of the woredas in the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region of Ethiopia. This woreda has its origins in the province Chetta of the former Kingdom of Kaffa. Part of the Keffa Zone, Cheta is bordered on the west by Decha, on the north by Telo, and on the east by the Konta special woreda. Towns in Cheta include Shama. Cheta was separated from Telo woreda.
