There Is No EPRDF, Only TPLF – Joe Michael

Ethiopians don’t require anymore testimony to know what Ethiopian People Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) is and what it is really standing for. No one is interested to any further extent to be clued-up about EPRDF. The reason is – there is no EPRDF in reality; there is only a Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF).

When TPLF came to power in 1991, its devious leaders promised to Ethiopians and to the Westerns who backed them during the war that they will form a political party and a government that comprises of all Ethiopians. They dreadfully condemned the Derg regime and vowed to create a new democratic system that treats all Ethiopians equally. Many pro-democracy devotees, including the Westerns believed the TPLF and gave it a chance to prove what it preached. Some freedom fighters even turned in their weapons and joined EPRDF not knowing that they were to be used as bondsmen by the TPLF power mongers.

It is now almost twenty years since TPLF claimed that it has formed an alliance political party that represents every ethnicity in the country. However, those TPLF leaders who came in as liberators two decades ago are still clinching the power not giving a chance to others at all. In fact they have created a domineering system in which they can manipulate the whole aspects of political and economical well being of the country. They have power over a constitution they have written and they can arrest any one who questions them. They control major businesses of the country and when they make economical policies they shape it to the best interest of their businesses not to the country.

There are several facts that can validate the veracity that there is indeed only TPLF. Here are some of the very vital questions Ethiopians have been asking and seeking to get CLEAR and DIRECT answers from TPLF leaders who have been bragging about EPRDF:

1-How come, almost after two decades, over 99% of key military positions are still held by TPLF members?

2-How come a TPLF leader has been ruling the country for almost 20 years and still unsure about giving a chance to other so called EPRDF members?

3-How come the billions of dollars worth political party’s businesses belong to only TPLF?

4-How come a political party involves in a multimillion dollar business against the country’s constitution?

5-How come TPLF by itself makes decisions in the name of EPRDF, including terminating, arresting, and torturing opposition members, business associates, and even EPRDF members?

6-How come TPLF is still a Liberation Front?

Observably, it has been very difficult to TPLF members and its EPRDF agents to give clear answers to these questions as there are no legitimate answers. Again, if there is indeed EPRDF, then what are the legitimate answers to these questions?

    How true it is and to say that we have moved to party system is an illusion that we are being fed by well oiled propaganda machines of the TPLF. By now one would have assumed most liberation fronts would transform themselves to civic,democratic national parties. When a country is ruled by a narrow clique and by that a paranoid one such transformations are hard to see or come by. So we will be stuck with the liberatiion fronts’ rule for sometimes.
    EPRDF is supposed to be a coalition fronts or groupings. In reality all the groups in it are created by TPLF and they do not have their own independent personalities. If TPLF meant business , by now EPRDF would have been transformed into party, whereby, it would have a bylaws like modern parties in a democratic society. Again this is not going to happen because of the above the nature of TPLF..narrowly base clique and paranoid clique.
    The unfortunate, thing is some still believe that they are immortal or can sustain this situation for ever. I say, learn from history fast and change course before it is too late.
    In the mean time lets us pray for well being of our people, country and the peace.

    I have a fear you guys are narrow nationalist. The reason why I have said this is, you are seen or read more than them as a narrow nationalist. I can see that you hate the Tigrian very much why? I don’t want to repeat what you have said but think twice even more before you put your ideas for public. Let the Almight heal you from this illness.

    Sorry I thought you are democrat and your media also democratic. U are guided to one direction only. U must be from the Derge guntas. Even if you are from them, let us discuss and try to come to one sense. Don’t afraid of oppositions or different idea from u eshi. I do believe that the EPRDF hs its own limitation as they are not Godly kingdom, leave alone the EPRDF, the Derge also contributed little but what we hv to do is put the done and not done in different side and weight it so that will comment on the not done part to be done. All what you have said about Tigrian and Amhara… will be deminished after we are able to live standard life, don’t u think?
