Donald Yamamoto, America’s mild-mannered Ambassador in Addis Ababa has thrown his weight behind the mediation efforts of Professor Ephraim Issac. The renowned Ethiopian linguist has started the mediation between the government and Kinijit leaders who have been in prison for a year and half now, but has been stung with accusations that he has so far failed to be even-handed mediator in trying to push the prisoners to accept whatever the government proposes. In the last proposal, the government asked CUD leaders to fill a form which makes all of them individually responsible for trying to overthrow the government. The prisoners have declined to sign the form.

In a letter addressed to professor Ephraim and obtained by a contributor to EZ Post, Ambassador Yamamoto, says he stands with the professor’s attempt to mediate between the two parties, and that he prays for the success of his attempt to make the prisoners sign the form. His letter also says the American Embassy will facilitate a medical travel to America for Kinijit’s Chairman, Hailu Shawel, and Ethiopia’s greatest human rights activist, Professor Mesfin Woldemariam.

Observers say that the Ambassdor’s stance is outrageous because he knows how Prime Minister Meles broke down the mediation after preliminary agreement was reached by the parties two weeks ago.

    I just wonder what this world is coming to be, where lies prevail, truth is buried alive and muscles try to prevail over intelect; really a sad retrogretion.

    May Allah lead us to a fairer world

    Bullies like the US are pocking their nose in everybody’s business. leaders like mr zenawi are morrons whose brain is tangled in their gut. Unfortunately we Ethiopian are the one who get our fingers burnt.

    Some poems previously posted for the remembrance of our brave heroes;

    Read on:

    The true judgment day:

    “Birtuye Mideksa”? the freedom spirit
    The Known competent judge rejecting a bandit
    Has changed roles for now-
    to save the people’s right
    Decided by her self,to face the very same court
    Preferring liberty, leaving aside comfort

    Lioness among lions in the “kaliti”? prison
    Suffering day and night in terrible dungeon
    Bearing yolk of injustice continued and done
    Courage to all you there -
    the truth will come out soon

    “Ayresashim libe”? our sweetest “Orange”?
    “Sew mersat Ayawkim”? was the song of the age
    Give my greetings please,
    to the engineer and judge
    The professors,journalists
    all skills on the stage

    Tell me judge “Birtukan”? the meaning of treason
    Does that mean “genocide”?,send “Yakob”?to prison
    The honorable lawyer selected by UN?
    Rwanda’s genocide, observer in person?

    Or send me “Birtuye”? holly book from a town
    That teaches about freedom,
    at early stage of dawn
    Promoting peace and love “Berhanu”?is well known
    He gave his health and time like the HeroMesfin
    Fathers of knowledge and every Ethiopian

    The truth will come out free or injustice should prevail?
    In any case be sure and believe in people
    All of us are with you
    despite some times we fail
    Forget the “world powers”? that support the evil

    Wishing you all strength,
    in those difficult days
    Through spirit we send you our warmest hugs
    True judgment day is near without any questions
    When we all Ethiopians will share the happiness

    (Anonymous Ethiopian)
