    Bravo! Ethiopians in London, my hats off to you. Kehadiue Lidetu is not different than Meles. I cannot believe this kiss-ass leba yeethiopia telat showed up in London to address Ethiopians. He deserves rotten eggs thrown at his face and more.

    “Ahiyawen ferto dowlawn meta” yemibalewn anegager yimeslal bewichi ager yalu ethiopianoch chachata betkeberu lidedutu Ayalew lai yetesenezerew. Holding a grudge on his move after the 1997 election does not account for the Diaspora knowledge of his party move and advancement to the 2010 election with its full participation in the debate and the agenda places EDP in the same line of party platform as KAEUP, and others as deciphered for the pont of views presented during the debates with respect to the national agenda as opposed to ethnic agenda of Medrek/Tigrai Harena/efdre, which is in most of its attributes is a mirror image of TPLF/eprdf. Had they won a sizable seat, let alone a majority seat, they would have formed a bicameral chamber of parliament, a government with ethnic and secessionist politics and /or policies, economic development before democracy intact, exploitation and policial and economic strangle hold of the country and its people intact. The silent majority of Ethiopians know it is dejavu, all over again, with TPLF politbeuro in control of the government apparatus. What we need to take into account is whether EDP’s platform contributes to unity, territorial intergrity, sovereignity of Ethiopia and Ethiopians under liberal democracy, where on the other side of equation you have parties trying to bring about democracy with core blief of ethnocracy, ethnic dictatorship, economic development before democracy, internal economic and political dominance by TPLF and TPLF affiliated enterprises, laced with socialistic ideology of the studentrevolutionof the liberation movements in terms of oppression of the nations and nationalities. That is where the rubber meets the road not with the Hon. Lidetu Ayalew, which amounts to the citation above. You may want to engage him in a democratic discussion pannel or Q & A session, since a better chance of confronting the Hon. Lidetu Ayalew, more than the chance you had with the Prime Minister.

    Aha,

    How do you account for the ethnic dictatorships that preceded Meles Zenawi? What guarantee do others have that you would not repeat the same. How do you address the grievances of others that have been marginalized in concrete terms if we are to move forward? I am no fun of TPLF, but it is important to point out that your poltical manifesto does not take us any where at this juncture of Ethiopian history. The Amhara organization does not have any legitimacy to ask for others to follow its path while denying others the right for their own ideological path.
    Lidetu is an asterisc in the political land scape of Ethiopia and may satisfy your ethnic enclave only. The time is to seek ways of bringing all together with out preconditions than sticking to one’s own die-hard position.

    lidetu amnte hodam agawu we will get you at the end of the day with all your criminal families.You have been hidding your ethnice back ground and pretending your self as an Amhara , but theu have washed your hand with an innocent amharas. Your are thief. you have stolen oli from red cross and the farmers captured you when you tried to steal a holly ark from your village. you are TPLF dog from day one. You have never been against weyane and you came from wollo as bereket tail. Your ignor5ancy could allow you to understand what the british people said to you. You are dumped TPLF’s dog. Meles sent you just to waste ethiopians time. but the time will come you all criminal bandas will face justices.

    Lidetu is like a dead Dog in the street, dead and buried in the minds of many, including the minds of his masters …We should not waste time discussing about sombody who is considered to be politically dead & Underqualified by all standards to lead any organization.By giving him air time and media coverage he might think that he is still gasping.

    Samuel, you are using the free media to mislabel ones view point as ethnically oriented, when it is not. The view points I presented are from the stand point of the goals for unity, territorial integrity, sovereignity of Ethiopia and Ethiopians under liberal and /or social democracy/ideology with national agenda rather than ethnic agenda. From that perspective any party that embraces those goals with strategies fit into the political model with national agenda. EDP, KAEUP, EPRP (not participating in the election) and others fit into that political model.

    On the other side of the equation there is TPLF/eprdf political model and its mirror image Tigrai-Harena/efdre. These the political realities of Ethiopia. Instead of disparging and pigeon holing me into Amahara ethnic group explain the validity of ethnic and secssionist politics and/or policies from the stand point of the platform of the party you are supporting. I value my Ethiopianism and National interest before my ethnicity to save Ethiopia from the negative forces of disintegration. EDP is not one of them.

    I felt there was a bit of an over excitement on the part of Londoners vis-a-vis Ato Ledetu.

    I thought they used a sledgehammer to strike such a diminutive nail as Ledetu.

    Instead, Londoners should have engaged him in more sedate ways to explode his politics of opportunism which he has, parrot fashion and with little knowledge christened ‘the third way’.

    In this, they could have summoned the witness of Time in their defence as Time has now clearly shown the bankruptcy of his seemingly eloquent but vacuous position.

    Ledetu should have been confronted with civility and level headedness in order to deny him his self-righteous image that he is the most rational and balanced politician in Ethiopian contemporary politics who was misunderstood and attacked both by the regime and the opposition.

    Aha,

    The list you included tells the story of Ethiopian politics and part of the reason why we are at this stage today. I am not going to give you the historical role of the Amhara political elites who shaped the ground for the disenchantment of all other ethnic groups.
    What is the connection between “EDP, KAEUP, EPRP”? Interestingly they are all Amhara organizations under different names with the same mission- maintain the status quo pre-Meles where the other ethnic groups are going to play marginal roles with the Amhara cultural, poltical and economic domination. You should also glance accross the isle and feel how deserted that concept is. Yes many are fighting on different fronts, but few aspire to go back to the old system. This fight may take many years because of the complexity, but justice, fairness and equality will eventually triumph.

    Mebrate Million–give me a break!
    Kudos to Ethiopians in London! Kidetu deserved more than what he got. One cannot reason with the most unreasonable, irrational, traitor, and inhumane creature that has no conscience. Kidetu is the lowest of lowest bloody hand who does not deserve to be respected and listened to. Why should Ethiopians waste their time to listen to TPLF propaganda machine?

  20. aha!
    | #20

    Samuel your statements about the make up of these parties can not be substantiated in the first place. You are using the same propaganda TPLF and EPLF were using about Amhara ethnic group. Amhara ethnic group exist in UDJP, Ginbot-7, EPPF, etc. in addition to the ones I mentioned along with other ethnic groups in the same composition as the ones I listed. I did not include Ginbot 7 and EPPF anf others in that list because they are engaged in armed struggle. I did not include UDJP in that list because they fretting with the subset of the national agenda and are collaborating with those with ethnic agenda. What I focusing on is on the goals and platform and the stategies these parties are engaged in a peaceful struggle to attain the unity, territorial integrity, sovereignity of Ethiopia and Ethiopiopians. That platform does not exist in Medrek/tigrai-Harena/efdre, a mirror image of TPLF/eprdf or inany one of the teletafi parties, namely ANDEM, OPDM, etc, or the liberation fronts.

    Over the past 19-20 years has been defined by two political forces: a negative forces of disintegration and a positive forces of integration, where the balance is tilted towards the negative forces of disintegration. Political forces that do not have common denominator like the republican and democratic parties as is the case in the United States for example, because of ethnic and secessionist politics and/or policies taking precedence than individual rights and freedom.

    Tell me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are…Ethiopians are well aware who Kidetu works for and who his friends are. Kidetu is beyond jerro tebbi, he has also blood on his hands, either directly or indirectly.

    Samuel you are using the scare tactic that TPLF and EPLF were using against Amhara ethnic group as integral part of His Imperial majest’s regime, the Dergue regime, now as a sole constituency of KAEUP, EDP and EPRP, when parties embrace the goals for unity, territorial integrity, sovereignity of Ethiopia and Ethiopians under liberal and or social democracy, when the teletafi party and the loyalist opposition paties and liberation moements do not.

    Dear LIDETU,
    Please forgive them they don’t know what is politics. Please forgive them because they don’t understand the idea of respecting others. Please forgive them because being in London physically doesn’t mean you are automatically civilized. It takes time. I hope one day they will understand that you and others are struggling to bring change in a civilized way. Please do not give up. There are a lot of people who support you, so, keep it up LIDETU.

  25. You cannot be serious!

    Supporter of Lidetu #24,
    You are one blind leading another blind. When you point a finger at the innocent Ethiopians, you are pointing four fingers back at you, and the criminals. Why are you even try to talk about something you know nothing about? You and the likes of you who are raised to hate others–will never know the meaning of RESPECT and FORGIVENESS. You are gravely mistaken to think that so many people are on the side of Kidetu than against him. You need to make a note of it:—next to Meles and Bereket…Kidetu is the third most hated person in Ethiopia.

    Samuel,
    You write well, but with no valid evidence, just full of hate and misinformation about Amharas. To begin with–Ethiopia hasn’t been ruled by Amharas at least for the last 100 years. Listen man, get your facts straight…Haile Selassai and Mengestu were not 100% Amharas. Unfortunately, you are one of many who has been easily brainwashed by Isayass and Meles propaganda to divide and rule Ethiopia. Or, most probably, you are one of those undercover Woyanes, who goes around to put all the blames on Amharas, while the country is in the midst of political and economic crisis under TPLF. Just because Amharic happen to be the national language…Amharas have never been treated better than the rest of Ethiopians. Amhara provinces have still the worst poverty rate in Ethiopia. Unlike TPLF who control all the Governmental Departments–The Parliament…The Military..The Justice Department… Most of the Banks…All the major businesses…you name it, never in the history of Ethiopia one ethnic group ever controlled the Ethiopian government as we see it now. In fact, Haile and Mengestu did very little for Amhara provinces than other parts of Ethiopia. Please don’t be an educated fool, by talking nonsense to influence Ethiopians intentionally to take the focus off Meles, and his gangs who are mistreating Ethiopia/ns, and selling our country to foreigners.

  27. Repent!

    I believe kindness and compassion is in the soul and cannot be taught. It is unfortunate that Ethiopia is under Meles that was born without empathy like Hitler, Stalin and the likes of them that enjoy war and misery. People think before you support and follow a tyrant.
    Samuel and the likes of you:–don’t say you weren’t warned when you face God, and asks you, why you people supported and followed an evil man that has spilled innocent people‘s blood, and a man that brought miseries to mothers and fathers of his victims?

    #28,
    There is no disagreement with your statement. Countless number of innocent Ethiopians were thrown in prison and killed in 2005 for voting for CUD members and rejecting Meles and his political party. Ever since the prince of darkness has taken power, his regime has slipped into more deepening state of corruptions year after year. According to Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, Ethiopians who don’t agree with Meles have been incarcerated, tortured, and some have been vanished out of this world.

    #30, You seem to contradict yourself. Please go back and read my #28 comment. Ethiopians have given Meles the benefit of the doubt for the last twenty years, but in return Ethiopians have been killed, tortured looted and thousands of Ethiopians have been thrown in prison for life without a day in court. In the last twenty yeas under TPLF, Ethiopia have become one of the most corrupted countries in the world and no Human Rights. Good day sir! and Good bye!
