Southern Ethiopia-the playground of Meles Zenawi. By Yilma Bekele

April 13th, 2012 Print Print Email Email

Most locations are just bland places. There is not much variation in the topography. Look at Google satellite map of Africa and you will see what I mean. Endless flat land, a stretch of desert, an occasional river or a few hills is the norm. Our Ethiopia is different. In the North we have the Semen Mountains rearing high as if trying to reach heaven. With their rugged nature and sharp escarpments they kept us safe for centuries. They were our natural defense. The North is keeper of our old history. With its exotic monasteries, ancient obelisks it is here Jesus walked and Mohamed (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) sent his family for safety.

In the East our low lands are as fierce as the warriors they give birth to. There is no place lower than Afar depression on mother Earth. Loo and behold today it is considered the birthplace of the Human race. It is here mankind is thought to have become bipedal.

The West is where the mighty Nile flows with our water and soil to nurture that other civilization in the land of the Pharos and the great pyramids. It is also home to the famous tropical forests of Gambella and every animal life one can think of. With its lush landscape and colorful people this is where man feels one with nature.

The South is where God took his sweet time to create paradise. Who would deny that after visiting the Rift Valley? The lakes of Langano, Shala and Hawasa, the caves of Wolayeta, the natural splendor of Arba Minch, the hot springs of Wondo Genet make a grownup cry with joy. Our creator blessed us with beauty and wealth when he made our home.

The South is also where God’s curse has befallen us for all our sins. He sent us Meles Zenawi to teach us the price of vanity. I am really sorry to write in such a way in this week of Easter. But truth has to be told. Meles Zenawi is a curse on the land of the Habeshas. Such venomous hate one might say. I believe I am entitled to that. For twenty years the regime has rained death and destruction on our land and people. I am not imaging it. All what I say is verifiable fact and recorded history. Spare me your tolerance and indignation please. You wouldn’t think that if you stand in the shoes of the discarded and displaced.

You see my friend our TPLF leaders grew up isolated and alone in their little hamlets up north. There was no diversity. To Adwa and vicinity as Gertrude Stein will say ‘there is no there, there.’ That is why when they conquered our country they did not know what to do with the South. The diversity confounded our warriors. They know that they hated the Amhara, they loathed the Oromo, they were not really concerned about the Afar, the Gambellan, or the Somali but the South was a foreign land to our northern warriors. That is why when they created the Bantustans they lumped all the Southerners into one big bowl and named it ‘Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region.’ What a defangled name is what comes to mind when you hear this twisted designation.

The South is where TPLF asserted total control unlike in the other Bantustans. The South is where Meles Zenawi exercises his renowned divide and rule principles as an art. TPLF arrived with ready-made political Parties for every Bantustan they created. Local faces were chosen from the prisoners of war they have acquired during their struggle. The puppets were already versed in accepting their TPLF masters as the final word on any and all issues. Thus all the local boys were assigned a baby sitter or a minder from Adwa. The South has Abate Kisho a Sidama with Bitew Belay as the real power. Corporal Kuma Demeksa of Oromia was taken under the wing of Solomon Tsimo and Hilawi Yesuf lorded it over Addisu Legesse in the Amhara Bantustan.

Abate Kisho was a simple sports teacher from the town of Leku near Yirgalem. He was not at all ready for prime time and it showed. He even has the audacity to side with one faction over the other during the TPLF drama. It was pathetic to see Meles haul his ass to jail with some trumped up charge. The current Foreign Minster replaced him as the new toy. By 2001 the Sidama people were becoming hip to this patronizing practice and demanded a certain amount of autonomy or self-administration as granted by the Constitution. Meles replied with tough love and sent his Agazi forces to teach them a lesson. Even the US State Department noted this wanton murder of unarmed protesters in Hawasa. Melese Marimo the vice president and perpetrator of this crime was rewarded for his ordering of the massacre by being sent to South Africa as an Ambassador, of course with the First Secretary a TPLF cadre in charge. That is the normal operating procedure in all the Embassies.

The issue percolated and during the election of 2005 the Southerners answered by siding with CUD (Kinijit) and were able to trounce the regime’s candidates. In 2006 Meles convened a meeting in Hawasa and was able to mollify the locals with some bizarre actions. The renaming of ‘Southern University’ to ‘Hawasa University’ was seen as a triumph of Sidama assertiveness. The current puppet Shiferaw Shigute was crowned as the new face of Southern independence. Abate Kisho was released from Federal prison and sent back home poor but alive and a good symbol of what could happen when natives fill their head with funny notion of being equal.

Of course the raping and pillage of the south continued unabated. There was no stone left unturned to cultivate animosity between the different tribes and keep them at each others throat. The Sidamas were made to compete with the Wolaitas, the Siltes were divorced from the Gurages, and the Konsos were made to envy the Derasas etc. etc. The cadres encouraged turmoil and civil war. As in the rest of our country Southern Ethiopia was full of drama with the TPLF active in every village fanning the hate flame.

Ethiopianess was discouraged while allegiance to tribe was glorified. Meles and company have done their homework in how to create havoc on our country while in their caves. They did not dream of building hospitals, schools or factories but were busy drawing maps, creating language barriers and perfecting the Kilil concept. The South was their dream come true. Our common language was their first casualty. It was deemed inappropriate. Trained teachers were sent away to their respective Bantustans and the English alphabet became the language of the schools in Sidama. Without adequate preparation, without trained teachers, without books available the Southern children were left to fend for themselves. It was sad to witness a simple application that has to be written in one language to be translated to another when it reaches Hawasa the capital city. The South was made unable to communicate within its own Bantustan. It was a crime. The TPLF party was the orchestrator of such tragedy.

Shiferaw Shigute is the Frankenstein monster Meles created. He is the son of Meles Zenawi. Like his parent he is devoid of empathy and proud of his betrayal of his people. Look at him closely and you will see Meles – indifferent, arrogant and know it all. From his expensive Savile raw suit with matching ties to his air of superiority he is the kind that makes his maker proud. When his own Party found him guilty of abuse of power and voted to oust him, our fearless step child thumbed his nose at the assembly and said “I did not do this alone, we shared the money with the wife of the Prime Minister, Mrs. Azeb Mesfin. If we are going to be accountable, we should both judged by the law. If we have to return the Birr, we both have to return it” and stormed out of the meeting. His stepfather reversed the decision of the assembly. Like father like son! It is Shiferaw Shigute practicing ethnic cleansing today or rather it is Meles Zenawi using his toy boy that is displacing our people. It is the concept of Kilil coming home to roost.

Why am I going thru all this recounting our ugly history is a valid question? It is because the past is important to avoid making the same mistakes again. We learn so we don’t repeat that which has not worked. I am not obsessing about the things that we cannot control but rather I am hoping we learn from it so we can focus on tomorrow where we have the power to build a better Ethiopia. The do’s and don’ts of today are based on the lesson from the success and failures of yesterday.

Thus we learn from human history to see what works and what to avoid. The quest for liberation and a building a better Ethiopia for all will be accomplished if based on that principle. Each and every one of us is the building stone for it to succeed. Some folks were upset because I criticized a few physicians for their enabling activity regarding building a ‘referral hospital’ in our country. People feel upset when asked to boycott Ethiopian Airlines or avoid drinking Woyane beer. We advocate such action not out of hate but precisely because such form of ‘peaceful resistance’ have proven to work. There was a time when the West led by Britain and the US tried to justify their investment in South Africa by claiming they were creating jobs for the poor African masses. It was not true. They were realizing huge profit from slave labor.
What did Black South African say about that? Steven Biko, the charismatic young leader wrote ‘those who professed to worry over Blacks suffering if the economy deteriorated had missed the point. We’re already suffering’ He often reminded us ‘those who live in constant fear of being shot, beaten, or detained without charge, for those whose children already live in abject poverty and near starvation, an economic downturn is not the major area of concern.’ Nobel Laureate Albert Lutuli, president of the African National Congress in one of his speeches said
“The economic boycott of South Africa will entail undoubted hardship for African. We do not doubt that. But if it is a method which shortens the day of bloodshed, the suffering to us will be a price we are willing to pay.”
We are not saying anything different. Your investment in Meles’s land scheme, your patronizing Meles’s Airlines, your partying in Alamudi’s hotels, your support of the so-called hospital is hurting our people. No need to qualify it with good and bad investment, it all goes to the same pot.
As some of us are preparing to celebrate Easter let us not forget what it really means. Easter is Jesus Christ’s victory over death. It is a time of renewal and rebirth. Let us work for the rebirth of our glorious history. Let us resurrect the spirit of our forefathers that stood united and were able to hand us a proud history. Our love for each other our tolerance of the little imperfections in each of us is what our country needs in this time of hopelessness and apathy. Happy Easter.

    “Let us work for the rebirth of our glorious history. Let us resurrect the spirit of our forefathers that stood united and were able to hand us a proud history…

    You say this and support G7, and of course the renewed OLF (your words). Do you share this vision with your new buddies in Minnesota, or is it a visionless friendship?

    Answer this and you will renew yourself in the sprit of Jesus Christ, big bro!

    Mr. Yilam,
    I read your article with interest only to learn how out of touch you are from Ethiopian reality. You wrote this article because Shiferaw ordered a few illegal settlers to leave a forestland in Bench Zone. We know Amhara nationalists are hurling insults on Shiferaw only to reveal their concealed motives of occupation and exploitation of the resources in the South. Please beware that the old nationalist politics is died in cold water. Never again try to mislead Ethiopians with your nationalist political agenda and to pave a way for further operation of other nations of Ethiopia. We are in 21st century and people are well aware of your toxic ideas. Please move on… This comes from a decedent of Hadiya nation.

    [[.. the renewed OLF…vision ... new buddies in Minnesota … friendship?...]]

    The renewed OLF’s press release signed by G. Kemal Gelchu “Eviction of innocent peoples from their home is a crime against humanity” is very touching. It brings tears to those who love country.

    So If I were you I wouldn’t underestimate G7/OLF and its vision of Ethiopiawenet. The Meles Dictatorship has to find a way of accommodating all stake holders of country.

    Did you notice how the neighborhood-watch volunteer who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was arrested and charged with second-degree murder? That was done after weeks of mounting tensions and protests across the country. Now, George Zimmerman, 28, could get up to life in prison if convicted in the slaying of the unarmed black teenager.

    So whatever ever happened in Benji Maji should be investigated by a special prosecutor and arrive to some sort of conclusion. Things may not be as Yelma described it “The plight of the Amhara’s is Apartheid in practice” but, a lot of people support Yelma’s assertion.

    As Martin’s parents expressed relief over the decision to prosecute their son’s killer, we expect a relief of some sort from the Meles Dictatorship.

    Wagudo and Bati, would you mind to wake up? Ethiopians talk about unity. No one buys the idea of division except you dogs and your masters. You know Dogs? They just go where their master wants to be and loyal of course. I appreciate your being loyal but you have to be reasonable. Don’t be loyal for the sake of filling your stomach. So wake up and improve your argument.

    No matter how much you try to convince Ethiopians that the woyane regime is better than the past rulers of Ethiopia, I’m afraid, you’ve failed flat on your face! Even the other blood-sucker cannibal Mengestu was much, much better in many ways than tyrant Meles. No one, but Meles and the TPLF thugs that left Ethiopia landlocked–No one, but Meles, his wife Azeb and his TPLF criminals who have robbed the country and have become extremely rotten rich while millions of Ethiopians are struggling to get one meal a day and millions are dying of starvation–No one, but Meles and his associates who have evicted Ethiopians in Gambela, Gondar and other places and sold Ethiopia’s fertile land to foreigners–No one, but Meles and his thugs who are still selling hundreds of young Ethiopian women as slaves to Arab countries to be tortured, raped, mentally ill and killed–No one but Woyanes that use small children as commodities and selling them to sex abusers around the world, etc…There is no comparison to the atrocities Meles and his Tplf criminals have committed on Ethiopians. It is unfortunate that Isayas and Meles were able to convinced non-Amhara Ethiopians and some powerful people around the world that Amharas are bad people with unfounded charges, in order to divide and rule Ethiopia, even though, the late HaileSellassae came from a family of Amharas, Gurages and Ormoms and Muslim and Christian families. But now, all Amharas and non-Amhara Ethiopians have been robbed of their money and land, tortured, and killed and have found out that NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN AS CRUEL AS MELES AND HIS ASSOCIATES TO ETHIOPIA AND TO ALL ETHIOPIANS! YOUR OLD AGENDA TO DIVED AND RULE ETHIOPIANS WILL NOT WORK ANYMORE! ETHIOPIANS ARE WELL AWARE THAT YOUR GOAL IS TO LOOT ETHIOPIANS AND GET RICH, EVEN AT THE COST OF HUMAN LIVES!

    The fact of the matter is the Amharas have been on their knees for such a long time being unable to defend their rights. They have to stand in unison and demand what is righfully theirs. If need be they have to pay a price in blood. Althogh the Amharas have been deleberately weekned, by the incumbent government, they should say enough is enogh.The language of the Wayane is foce. The Amharas have to know that there is no freedom without a price to pay. They(Amharas) must be determined to face the challenges and live the expectations of their ancesstors.

    Ato Yilma, thank you for your magnificent article.
    You said it well and you said it all. Mellesse and his Woyane/TPLF terrorists have been kidnapping, torturing, and murdering millions of Ethiopians in the last twenty years. They planned, coordinated, and implemented ethnic cleansing, genocide, inter ethnic violence and strife. They created ethnic Bantustans so that Ethiopians are forced to be separated, divided, and imprisoned in their localities as in the old Apartheid South Africa. Ethiopians are forced not to communicate, cooperate, unite, and stand for their political and economical rights. Contrary to the phony constitution and un-abating propaganda the reality Ethiopians experience daily indicate Ethiopia and Ethiopians are under the yoke of the worst type of enemy.

    Today there are two classes of people in Ethiopia. The first class is of Woyane/TPLF with all the riches, resources, power, and authority. The second class is where ninety five percent of Ethiopians live and work for their masters Woyane/TPLF. In the later case we have Woyane/TPLF cadres control every government ministries, departments, states, zones, cities, villages, offices, factories, businesses, colleges, schools, army, and police. Woyane/TPLF controls these entities and the lives of Ethiopians through its cadres, spies, and hired bandas.

    Under Woyane/TPLF, rights of ethnicities, language groups, and regions are not only lies, hollow, and jokes but a cover to justify Woyane/TPLF’s subjugation of Ethiopians that don’t belong to Woyane/TPLF’s villages. Ethiopians have become slaves and subservient in their own land. Ethiopians are murdered, tortured, and terrorized by Woyane/TPLF terrorists at will. Ethnic federation is nothing but a cover used to guarantee the continuous domination and hegemony of Woyane/TPLF over all other Ethiopians. It is a cover used to commit the worst types of crimes; including ethnic cleansing, genocide, ethnic violence, and crimes against humanity.

    Woyane/TPLF also committed the greatest high crime of treasons by fighting Ethiopia and Ethiopians for the cessation of Eritrea. They lobbied, begged, and coordinated with the UN, AU, and other countries to recognize Eritrea, make Ethiopia a land locked country, and gave up the inherent Ethiopian territory of Assab Awraj. They gave Ethiopian territories to Sudan and Eritrea. They forcefully removed Ethiopians from their land and sold it to foreign companies. No government or group except Mellesse/Woyane/TPLF has ever committed these types of high treasons and treacheries in the world history. No one has ever committed such types of high crimes and saw the light of the day.

    There is nothing left for Ethiopians except looking their enemy in the eye, hold its horn tight, and break its neck forever. For their enemy is determined to continue in its path of destruction, death, and annihilation. There are is no common ground what so ever. The enemy started these campaigns of destruction and annihilation on Ethiopia and Ethiopians twenty years ago. Ethiopians, in their naivity hoped against hope Woyane/TPLF will change and be responsible. But it did not. It continued in its path to doom and made it a fight for survival. Ethiopians have to deal with and destroy their sworn enemy or they will be destroyed.

    I fully support Ato Yilma’s recommendations including boycotting of any/all businesses and revenue streams that feeds-in and support the perpetuation of the Woyane/TPLF mafia group. We need to use any/all means at our disposal to break the resources, the will, and the power of the enemy. We must use everything at our disposal to fulfill our objective of creating a country where the rules of laws and democratic governance is a reality (not phony or joke as Woyane/TPLF). We use all resources at our disposal to insure that every Ethiopia from north in Tigray to south in Borena, from east in Ogaden to west in Gambella is free, respected, secured, and where no one is above the laws and constitution of the land. No type of sacrifice should be big enough to persuade us from saving and liberating Ethiopia and Ethiopians from this hell and put the people and the country in the road to freedom, equality, prosperity.

    To Wagudo,
    You must be one idiot member of the Woyane/TPLF terrorist mafia or a low life hired hodam banda that lives for his belly. You are one delusional hopeless that lives a life not worthy of living. Because you don’t see, here, or comprehend the reality for you are deaf and dumb. Or you may be an illiterate dumb who don’t know the meaning of country, citizenship, nationality, people, and a responsible government.

    First, unless you are a dumb and moron you don’t say “few illegal settlers” to citizens in their own country. No one has the authority or the power to label any one “illigal” in his/her own country. This is simple ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.

    Being born, brought up, and lived near by, I know amharic speakers who live in Bench. They are not illegal settlers. They own the land, lived through generations, and became one with the Sidamas through inter mariages. They are as good citizens as any Ethiopian. All your assumptions that these people were “hurling insults on Shiferaw and concealed motives of occupation and exploitation of the resources in the South” is not even worth response. You must be confused about who was talking what and about who. We all know that the Mellesse/Woyane/TPLF thugs are known to say these types of trashes about Oromos, Amharas, Gambellas, and Southern people.

    Before trying to write any comment next time, you better have your screwed head checked, see, and understand the reality, and probably you might write something valuabale.

    Never dream of the day the old and defunct “Ahadawi mengist” rule come again. Why is Amhara so worried about federalism when all other nations are not? Former rulers used unity only to displace other nations of their resources and exploit. “Nationalist politics” has been a toxic pill given to innocent Ethiopians wrapped with honey. Why not you provide your people with other livelihood opportunities within your region? Why can’t you live within your means? You are so selfish that you only want to appropriate all resources from other nations of the country at the expense others. You have been useless colonizers (no technology, no creativity, no value addition; just exploitation). I wish a white man colonized us. That said, I believe in unity only if it means for the benefit of all stakeholders (all nations). I don’t believe in unity that denies ethnic diversity. There is no Ethiopiawinet in vacuum (without ethnic identity). I am a proud Ethiopian and no one defines what is being an Ethiopian for me.

    To Tarek,
    You must be ashamed of yourself and former Ethiopian rulers for leading the country to immense poverty, degradation of natural resources, social crisis, and near disintegration of the country. You don’t have a morale competence to insult a proud Ethiopian who lives in Ethiopia and contributing to the cause of its nation a banda. You are a typical banda and a sucker of your mother’s blood. You are the banda who defected against your nation after getting educated to beef yourself with a junk in the West. I don’t have anything against Amhara or any ethnic group. You (the bandas) and the rulers have been a disgrace to Amhara and the whole nation. Your former rulers have been so cruel to Amhara nation itself: no infrastructure, no entrepreneurship, no innovation; nothing. All the former rulers gave to Amhara is a false pride and abject poverty. Had your former rulers and “you bandas” provided sustainable means of livelihoods to your people, they wouldn’t have faced the problems they are facing today. All you know is conquest by force, occupation and exploitation of primary resources. That has been the mantra of your former rulers and that is the legacy you want to pass into the next generation. One has to think of alternative ways of creating wealth apart from damaging the remaining natural forest in the country. Unfortunately, you guys have got a permanent head damage and can’t be creative. The nation has lost hope on you guys and does not need you anymore. I hope this piece will give a better perspective to those who are willing to examine their thoughts about nation building.

    I found the recent Kemal Gelchu’s interview very interesting and insightful. The only concern is that we have not seen yet the true vision of the rest of the group around him, sending very inconsistent messages. I gather there is no consolidated vision among the new OLF. The same is true in Ginbot 7, particularly among the followers of G7 as they seem to be totally dependent on Dr. Birhanu. As to me, after listening the recent interview, I’ve put more trust on Kemal Gelchu for future of Ethiopia than Dr. Brhanu and his likes with fuzzy vision. Kemal Gelchu need to work for complete merger of OLF with the rest of Ethiopians groups. He doesn’t seem to support Amhara to organize by ethnic group, it will be to the best interest of all Ethiopians if OLF merge with non ethnic based groups.

    The criminal group lead by Zinawi,since its occupation of Ethiopia has campained for the distruction of the country and firmenting ethnic hatred and fascilitating conflict among Ethiopians, and crimes of all sorts have been committed allover and accross the country for the last twenty one years.Order was sent from Zinaiw’s office to the agent shiferaw Shigutai, who has no regard and respect for law and justice or his defiance against the law and justice and for his lack of civility and respect for human beings that would make Shiferaw Shigutai void of meaningful and measurable knowledge about the cause and its effect of being an instrument and agent and obedient to the grand criminals like Zinawi and his men and women who surround him.

    Not only Shiferaw Shigutai has a poor judgment of what would the consequence of his being obedient to the most wanted criminal Zinawi and putting Zinawi’s distructive order into practice on the inhabitants,but also he did not realize that such distructive measures and actions that he took on citizens are punishable by international law, and would also make him responsible and accountable for the orders he took from the criminals and to creat calamities and permanent distruction on human beings.

    Obviously,shiferaw Shigutai,just like Hailemariam Desalegn did not have a deep knowledge about Zinawi’s criminal organization and how and why these criminals came together to form a criminal organization,and why the criminals are in Ethiopia.

    Shiferaw Shigutai is absolutely in a very complex and unavoidable situation that he put himself in mainly because of his acceptance to be a part and parcel of the criminal organization he is serving currently and accepting command and order from criminals senior to him in the hierarchy which he is not in.Take,Hailemariam Desalegn,for example;the reason why Zinawi and his men and women surround him chose Hailemariam Desalegn for the postion they wanted him to serve for was that clear and simple- they know a lot about him,but he doesn’t know a fraction about them;therefore,when the two meet,obviously,the ones with prior knowledge about the other is in a comanding position to manipulate and use the one who does have kowledge about the other one.Frankly and fairly speaking Hailemariam Desalegn and Shiferaw Shigutai are not genuine citizens with responsibility and accountablity to serve the public,and don’t have the moral responsibility to serve the public with good faith and honesty;they never have had given themselves enough time and thought to think throughly before and when they were recruited and became the employees of Zinawi,the head and chief executive of the criminal organization he runs right from his office compound.

    Hailemariam Desalegn,seemingly educated and appearing large and mature,to Zinawi and his agents is nothing but euraka a baby who is welcome to the world of zinawi’s mafia world,who needs to be mouth-trained;first thing first,Halemariam Desalegn must first be able to speak the language of Zinawi and his criminal organization,and must adhered to the rules and regulations of Zinawi’s criminal organization, and perform duties rgaldless of the nature of the task assigned to is illegal or criminal.At the very beginning,Hailemariam Desalegn,while on the job training did not do well because he messed up here and there,and aslo appeared confused an naieve;however,now,him taking a baby step and the criminals,putting more effort and time on him,they are appearing to reap the maturity of Hailemariam Desalegn and his average performance on the mission and tasks they assigned him to;so true is for shiferaw shigutai.Well,one way the other,whoever is a willing participant in Zinawi’s criminal activities shall bear the responsibiliy and will pay the most expensive price.

    እያወቅንና እየተመራመርን ስንሄድ(When we achieve more knowledge and skill) በተቃራኒው ማስተዋል የሚባለውን ጥበብ(wisdom) እናጣለን፡፡ለምሳሌ አንተ Wagudo ሳይማሩ ያስተማሩህን እናትና አባትህን እንዴት አድርገህ ነው ዛሬ የምትመለከታቸውና የምትመዝናቸው?መቼም እንደ እኔ አላወቁም ወይንም አልሰለጠኑም ብለህ አታቃልላቸውም፡፡በአንተ እናት አባት እንደዚሁም አያት ቅድመ-አያትና እንደ አፄ-ኃይለስላሴ አፄ-ምኒሊክ አፄ-ዮሀንስ አፄ-ቴዎድሮስ ወዘተ የጥንት ገዥዎች መካከል ያለውና መኖር ያለበት መሰረታዊ የስብእና ልዩነት ምንድን ነው፡፡ያንተ እናት አባት አያት ቅድመ-አያት አሁን እኛ በዚህ ዘመን ያለን ዘመናዊ ነን የምንባል ሰዎች ባለን የምዘና መስፈርት ያልተማሩ ያልሰለጠኑ ኢ-ዲሞክራት ከሆኑ(ምናልባት ላይሆኑ ይችላሉና በቅድሚያ ይቅርታ እጠይቃለሁኝ) በተቃራኒው አንተ እያወገዝክ ያለኸው ያለፉት አገዛዞች (በተለይም ነፍጠኛ የሚባሉት አማራዎቹ) በተመሳሳይ ሁኔታ ያልተማሩ ያልሰለጠኑ ኢ-ዲሞክራት ቢሆኑ ለምን ይደንቅሃል ወይንም ለምን ይደንቀናል?ነገር ግን ወደድክም ጠላህም አመንክም አላመንክም እነዚህ ያለፉ አገዛዞች ከአንተና ከእኔ እናት አባት አያት ቅድመ-አያት ወዘተ የቅርብ ቤተሰቦች የተሻለ ማሰብና መንቀሳቀስ የሚችሉ ስለነበር ነው ከፋም ለማም ኢትዮጵያ የምትባለውን ሀገር ፈጥረውና መስርተው ሀገር መግዛትና ማስተዳደር የቻሉት፡፡
    ስለዚህም ስለነዚህ አገዛዞች ዝም ብለን በጭፍን ከመራገማችን በፊት እንደ ግለሰብ እንደ ቤተሰብ እንደ ህዝብና እንደ ሀገር እራሳችንን በድፍረትና በእውነት በቅጡ ቆም ብለን መጠየቅና መመርመር አለብን፡፡
    በትክክል ተምረናል ሰልጥነናል ብለን የምናስብ ከሆነ ያለፈውን መጥፎ ታሪክ በመልካም ገንቢ ትችት አስተካክለን ጥሩውን ይዘንና አጎልብተን መቀጠል የእኛ የአሁኑ ትውልድ ግዴታና መብት ነው፡፡እኔ እንደሚሰማኝ ከሆነ ያሁኑ ትውልድ ይህንን ለማድረግ በጣሙን የተሳነውና የከበደው ይመስለኛል፡፡
    ስለዚህም ትንሽ ፊደል በቆጠርንና ባወቅን ቁጥር ያለፈውን መጥፎውን ከማስተካከል ይልቅ ያለፈውን ሃጢያት ብቻ እያጎላን በዚያ መነካከስና መወነጃጀል ስራችን እየሆነ ነው የመጣው፡፡ቢያንስ እኮ አሁን ያለው የተማረው የህብረተሰብ ክፍል በቅጡ መደማመጥና መግባባት እየከበደው ነው የመጣው፡፡
    And the very reason is that may be we are all full of mere bunch of knowledge(IT, Medicine, Physics, Bussiness, Engineering,…..) but we have lost classical wisdom and commonsense that are of intrinsic-virtues and values. Are we daring to blame or demonize those of our ancestors or forefathers for not having this knowledge?

    To Wagudo,
    Did I hit your dead and dumb nerve??? If so you deserve it. Your scribble is also filled with the typical bombo jumbo of the out dated, back ward, and dead ender ethnic politics. You tried in vain to define me of a certain (as you folks say) ethnic group. This shows that you are hopelessly programmed and operate nothing more than an ethnic zombie. You can’t see, don’t hear, nor understand, and can’t comprehend anything unless someone break it for you in terms of ethnicity. This only confirms that either you are a robot created with the image of Woyane/TPLF or zombies that came from the underworld of Woyane/TPLF. Indeed, you are not only dumb you are hopelessly delusional.

    The word “banda” is a word that defines a person like you and your masters Mellesse and his Woyane/ TPLF criminals that fought, undermined, and sold their country. Mellesse and his Woyane/TPLF criminals committed treasons, treachery, and deceits against Ethiopia and Ethiopians and this is unparalleled in the history of the world. As I said, Mellesse and his Woyane/TPLF fought the Ethiopian army siding with EPLF for the secession of Eretria, campaigned for the independence of Eretria, begged the UN, AU, and various governments for the recognition of their phony referendum and independence. These by any standard are treasons, treacheries, and high crimes punishable by death in all countries. No self respecting, trustworthy, and person with sound mind will commit these types of high crimes. The track records of Mellesse, Woyane/TPLF, and people like you that committed crimes, treasons, and treacheries are clear, massive, and extremely damaging. Because of these Mellesse, Woyane/TPLF, and people like you don’t have any moral authority, any integrity, and trustworthiness to speak and comment about Ethiopia nor lead Ethiopia and Ethiopians. Ethiopians don’t trust you, don’t respect, and don’t recognize you.

    Since their days as “shifta” and after taking power in Addis, Melese and his Woyane/TPLF terrorist group have continuously and consistently undermined Ethiopia’s security, political, and economic interests. They fought the Ethiopian army (not Derg) by supporting EPLF for the secession of Eritrea. They even facilitated the secession of Eritrea by begged the members of UN to approve the secession of Ethiopian territory. They made Ethiopia a land locked country sacrificing the national, security, and economic interests of Ethiopia and Ethiopians in Eritrea and Afar.

    Mellesse and his Woyane/TPLF divided Ethiopians into ethnic groups and set up ethnic Bantustan under the model of the Apartheid South Africa. Woyane/TPLF terrorists terrorized, raped, kidnapped, killed, and imprisoned millions of Ethiopians in every corner of the country. Mellesse and his Woyane/TPLF thugs planned, coordinated, and executed ethnic strife, infightings, violence, killings, and ethnic cleansing in different parts of the country. Mellesse and his Woyane/TPLF planned, coordinated, and executed politically motivated kidnappings, killings, imprisonments, and disappearances of opposition party members, farmers, students, children, and nomads in Addis Ababa, Shoa, Gambela, Sidamo, Gondar, and Ogden. Mellesse and Woyane/TPLF removed, killed, and imprisoned thousands of Ethiopian residences and gave the inherent Ethiopian territory of western Ethiopia to the Sudan.
    These are all high crimes by any standard. Yes, these are crimes of treasons, genocide, ethnic cleansing, and treachery of highest order committed by Melles and his Woyane/TPLF thugs against Ethiopia and Ethiopians. Ethiopians from north to south and east to west experienced and lived though these in the last twenty years.

    As for the phony economic development, infrastructure, and entrepreneurship under Mellesse and Woyane/TPLF your blabber, it is both phony and balloons of hot air. It does not translate to daily bread, house for shelter, or live without abject poverty, destitution, and rampant deceases for Ethiopians. As for blaming an ethnic group for damaging the natural resources and conquering and occupying other regions, I arrest my case. You surely are deaf and delusional. Ethiopians from north to south and from east to west have been accusing accurately the destructive campaign of Woyane/TPLF terrorists for damaging, destroying, conquering, occupying, selling, and giving away lands and natural resources throughout the countries. These are the realities on the ground. These are the daily experiences of Ethiopians.
