The Ethiopian Revolution: Conspiratorial, Open or Secretive? Obo arada aba shawl

April 13th, 2015 Print Print Email Email

Since 1974, Ethiopia was engulfed in Revolutionary War, mainly in political struggle. In its simplest form, the regime for three Millennium and plus i.e. the Monarchy along with the Ethiopian Church has collapsed. And a new era of transformation has emerged.

What kind of an era? Was it political, economic, social, religious or psychological? It may be all of the above. But the real perceived perhaps accepted to millions of Ethiopians was the Political Power. What kind of political power? That is the question that still persists to the present day of Ethiopia and Eritrea.

A question who rules, governs, or leads the people and the countries demanded some answers. Do the words of govern, rule and lead sound familiar to all peoples of Eathiopia – ኤትዬጵያ- I would say yes to the emotions, mentality and physical sociology of the people in question. But the answer was definitely no. In a country where Trade used to dominate instead of Business, Voluntarism instead of Public Policy and traditional bureaucracy instead of modern bureaucracy, it is now inevitable to emerge for Business leaders, Public servants and Government officials to operate in the open. For the Ethiopian Eway Revolution is based on deciphering F.B.I. i.e. FEUDALISM, BUREAUCRACY capitalism and IMPERIALISM.

But once the Monarchy rule system including that of Haile Selassie was abolished, the present day seem an era of confusion and fusion of cultural shock in all walks of life. The question is who is responsible for such unwanted conditions. My own assessment is those who started learning the ABC alphabets since day one of their schooling. The use of Latin alphabet promoted them to the status of authority, leadership and power. The irony though, their knowledge did not synchronize with the learner of GEEZ Alphabet. Nor did it cynic with those church educated Eathiopians. Essentially the Ethiopian Revolution was under three groups of influence both of which attempted to rule or lead the nations of Eritrea and Ethiopia. The major forces behind these elements were/are the following categories.

The Conspiratorial leadership of TPLF

Leadership is the other side of followership. In order to lead the TPLF leaders had to have some form of concept to follow. I would tend to think that the influence of Adwa-Adigrat road has contributed to the connection of leadership style. For those readers who do not know locations or communications, Adigrat is the capital of Agame Awraja whereas Adwa is the capital as well as the Awraja of Adwa province. At the time of the budding growth of would be leaders of TPLF, A & A (Adigrat and Adwa) were the only link to the main artery of roads between Addis Ababa and Asmara. In other words transport and religion have played significant roles in the formation of the TPLF leaders.

And that is the rebellious group of Christians known in Adwa as the followers of Kenisha and those who adhere to the Orthodox Christianity of Agame awraja have come to together to lead the peoples of Tigrai. As it was too difficult to conduct a unified region with one link of road and two religious group’s seemingly harmonious but in reality hostile, very hostile at times, Ethiopians were led to confusion and destruction. We can imagine how difficult it would be when a third factor such as Catholicism, Marxism and other rivals from Makalle, Shire, Maichew and Abi Adi would add to the feud.
This is in addition to the politics of ELF, EPLF and EPRP all of them not necessarily friendly. The Eritrean Liberation Front (ELF) could not go along with TPLF for their objectives and goals were not the same thing. The Eritrean People Liberation Front (EPLF) did go along with the TPLF leaders for both had common elements and beliefs. That is, both Front leaders adopt the adage of “blood is thicker than water” and “what is in there for me”. Both BB i.e. blood and benefit sink with both leaderships of TPLF and EPLF respectively. Both had no principle or ideology to adhere to. Both gambled with peoples’ lives and resources, a case in point is the war for Badme. As to the antagonism with the leaders of EPRP, the TPLF felt inferior to the giant leaders of the graduate and undergraduates from the same region. But most importantly, their differences emanated because of principles of freedom and liberty which are hard to grasp without education and knowledge. The TPLF leaders had narrow modern understanding of politics and government. Instead they were armed with half baked philosophy between the Ethiopian philosopher Zera Yacob and the French philosopher Rene Descartes. Ideologically they were mesmerized by the thoughts of Mao Zedong of China and Enver Hoxha of Albania. Their local cadres already were exposed to the conspiratorial traditional Orthodox Church education and limited experience of Catholicism and Protestantism.

It was and still because of this conditions and understanding that the peoples of Eritrea and Ethiopia are suffering and running away from their respective countries. One can understand that the TPLF leadership being cornered and at times sandwiched among major issues and events but one had expected them to come out clean with diversified experiences and experiments but instead they chose to be more cunning every day. That conspiratorial agenda is hovering all over Ethiopia. Coupled by propagandizing cultural ethnic as an achievement by itself, it is no brainer for TPLF and EPRDF. It may lead to disaster.

The Open leadership of EPRP

Long before the Ethiopian Revolution, the activists of Addis Ababa College Students were working underground for the simple reason that the Haile Selassie regime would not tolerate open discussion or debate of political nature. In order to avoid severe punishment or expulsion the activist students prefer to meet clandestinely and as a result they came to be known as the “Crocodile” Groups. Their main goal was to exercise a democratic process such as freedom of speech, assembly and press. Their activism had increased as they began to emulate the African Scholarship Students who were enrolled in the Addis Ababa College financed by the USAID. These African Students had come out of through some form of struggle for liberty and freedom in their newly gained Independence of their respective countries. The Ethiopian student body has come out boldly to demand their rights from the authorities of the College Administration. The targeted goal has changed to form an organization i.e. Student Union. Thus leaders began to emerge be it as members of student union council, editors of publications or becoming orators in an assembly.

As time pass by, the Addis Ababa College began to expand to a University Level. And also the demands of the University – known as the Haile Selassie University – had gone up in a new direction. The main issue of the day has become “land to the tiller” a reflection of the landless masses of Southern part of Ethiopia. For this high stake demand, new kinds of leadership were needed. Often open and blunt student leaders began to emerge and became to be known as “the animal group” reflecting the natural setting of rural Ethiopia. And so the leaders of EPRP to this day are operating in open democratic process despite all odds against them. Why because, the feudal system which was entrenched for thousands of years was based on mistrust operating under conspiracy and secrecy. We can imagine how hard it was/is for the leaders of EPRP to lead such societies. This was Revolutionary of the first order, changing the Ethiopian Software, long before digital age advanced. The “animal group” aka ‘COLLECTIVE LEADERSHIP’ is still intact and functional. It is so natural that it could not be seen by the uninitiated observer.

The all-time Secretive leaders of EPLF

Without history there is neither present nor future. The Eritrean Revolutionary struggle has no history or nobody claim it as an historical fact. All we hear or read is that either Awate or Issaiyas is initiator of the Eritrean Revolution. Nobody seems to win the argument. I know most Eritreans are pioneers but not as Revolutionary political pioneers.

Nobody seems to convince me that there was a political Revolutionary war in Eritrea; as a result I can only conclude that what has happened in Eritrea was a struggle for Independence from C.I.A. (deciphered as Colonialism-Imperialism-Apartheid). For such belief and position, Secrecy was not necessary means of struggle. That is why the current crisis is happening. In other words, the regime has now become a clandestine revolutionary government. CIA is a centralized agency established for the purpose of gathering intelligence services and it is located in Langley Park, Virginia. There is no secreting about it. The way the Eritrean government projects CIA is quite amazingly strange. I believe that the leadership of Eritrean government equates the operation and methodology of spying on its own citizens equates with that of CIA methods of gathering data. It is wise to differentiate intelligence service from spy service. The world has changed from analogue to digital age. It will be hugely beneficial for all Eritreans to have access to data and intelligence instead of depending on human spy. The Eritrean Front for democracy and justice cannot be achieved via secrecy and conspiracy.

Conclusion and Suggestions

The letter C is half of the letter S. The TPLF leaders should stop using conspiracy and the leaders of the EPLF should abandon secrecy for all time. It is inevitable that conspiracy leads to mass killings and that secrecy on its own leads also to corruption. Both phenomena are not healthy. EPLF uses language as separator of communities and societies while the TPLF depends on ethnicity for differentiation of societies. On the one hand, Eritrea using language as a criterion for separation from Ethiopia or from its own nationalities may seem a struggle for racial epitaph. While on the other, ethnic identity based on language proposed by TPLF and adopted by EPRDF may seem harmonious on the short run but dangerous in the long run.
The other option is an open book the hallmark of EPRP (Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Party) despite some misconceptions and propaganda machinations.

In Latin alphabet, one can write the name of Ethiopia as Ithiopia, Athiopia or Eathiopia but the correct one is in GEEZ alphabet as ኢትዬጵያ. That means, we each can communicate and understand when we write in Geez/fidel/abugida but perhaps not in Latin letters. Probably that is one main reason why the Shaebias and the Woyannes despise educated people. But the fact of the matter is that education in whatever form is important for civil societies such as ours. By the way shaebias ሻዕቢያ mean people and woyannes ወያኔ mean rebellious. People cannot rebel all the time. They need stability and peace unless of course, their liberties and freedoms are curtailed.

As to my appeal to the Diaspora Ethiopian and Eritrean Communities, I suggest to carefully study the three current global political parties operating and running in the United States, in the European Union (particularly in Germany) and in China as models appropriately emulated for Ethiopia. That would be the task at hand for politicians residing abroad. A copy cat of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as in the past did not sink in our country —ETHIOPIA— and it will not work just carbon copying China’s one party system, America’s two party system or Europe’s multi party-ism. It is time to learn from the past mistake. The Oromo democratic culture will help us move forward.

And an alternative Eathiopian model would be developed by all willing politicians.

    Thank you for writing such fun & wonderful presentation. It goes to show politics can be entertaining even with its loaded serious messages.

    We have to be careful not to try to re-invent the wheel as well.

    Application to the African setting from what worked in the Asian Tigers was what Meles formulated and rolled out in the Developmental state of ኢትዬጵያ. It has two parts.

    Successful elements of liberal economic policy by opening up much of the economy to foreign and domestic investment, allowing labor movements, keeping the tax and regulatory jargons low, and creating the best infrastructure through mainly state spending.

    The second part is to permit the ruling party to retain a firm grip on government, the courts, the army, the internal security apparatus, and the free flow of information. A shorthand way to describe the model is: economic freedom plus political control to the point of repression. My view is even with the right to succeed the present centralization is stronger than the past regimes.

    The “ethnic federation” is under the grip of EPRDF and folks are geared towards industrialization; the developmental state plays a crucial role in investing where market fails to undertake that task. It continues to create national fervors like the GERD to rally folks and keep them motivated and eventually as we talked about in the other thread, similar to what happened in the USA, the industrial revolution in the 19th century was able to defuse the ethnic differences among white ethnic groups to the lowest level. Our black ethnic differences won’t have a different fate. As white ethnic groups who migrated to the USA became successful by reaching “middle income”, they subsided their ethnic conflict and ended up creating what it is now more or less a system of meritocracy.

    I believe we can do the same.

    Isayas afework still feels like he is living in the jungle. his fear for his life mean that he lives by beating war drums and by forcing his subjects to go into forced army conscription. he still lives in a crisis and And do not seem to know how to get oUt of it.

    Tigre people liberation front still operate as a ‘liberation front’ for tigre at least, by using the tigre people as a cover behind their crime of murder, looting and corruption which has not benefited the many tigre people on whose behalf tplf operate. tplf politbureau,many of whom spent their adult life in the bush still retain their bush mentality , committing horrific crimes on the ethiopian masses. they cannot get out of the life they grew into adulthood and changing their views other thatn seeing themselves as ethnic liberation front is and idea that they cannot live with. they know nothing else and are resistant to change in their violent life style.

    The intelligentia who formed the backbone of EPRP were naive into believing that narrow ethnic groups would be allies in the revolution. whilst EPRP was accommodating to these groups, tplf regarded eprp as a threat in its ethnic homeland. and thus the ethnic cleansing campaign of Tplf began when they jointly attacked erpr with shabia in the early 1980s

    Eritrea: The Great Illusion; a fascinating series of articles written by Worku Aberra (PhD) is worthwhile to read by all.

    “..The EPLF’s Construction of Eritrean Identity: The Italian Influence
    The EPLF, during its quest for independence and since Eritrea became independent, has attempted to construct a common Eritrean identity relying on Eritrea’s colonial experience of 50 years as its basis. The claim that Italian colonialism provides an overarching unifying social and cultural mechanism is exaggerated.

    What percentage of Eritreans had become Italianized by the time Eritrea was federated with Ethiopia in 1952? Was the Italian cultural, artistic, and linguistic influence stronger than the Ethiopian influence in Eritrea, especially among the highlanders? I remain sceptical. (This is another topic that deserves to be explored)…”

    Debessai – Why do you make things up? We all know Tigrayans led EPRP as well.

    Thanks for the output, obo arada aba shawl.One rarely encounters an EPRP with a sense of humor and mild cynicism like you. Most of the comrades are mendacious, embittered and full of resentment, even as they pass through the phases of middle age to the next. He must be someone special who tolerates non-EPLF/EPRP/TPLF who does not subscribe to his worldview and believe system. Keep up the good job Obbo Arada/Aba Shawl( the seedy part of Asmara)

    What a werada Eritrean who mocks at Ethiopians.

    The author is also confused and not free. He very likely lives in the US and that is his problem. The next time he should write when his residence is outside the US, better in Asia or Africa. Then readers can hope to read a more honest article by him.
    The author for example lied when he wrote: ” CIA is a centralized agency established for the purpose of gathering intelligence services and it is located in Langley Park, Virginia.”
    No sir, CIA is mainly a COVERT OPERATIONS agency, according to many former CIA agents.
    And the “Ethiopian Revolution” and the EPLF and TPLF have far more to do with CIA covert operations than with anything the author tried to say. The whole article is confused and not telling the reality. Was the “Ethiopian Revolution” really an “Ethiopian” revolution and not a CIA covert operation ?

    [[..There is no state in Africa where talk of a “China Model” sounds more substantive than in Ethiopia under EPRDF rule..]]

    Here is another write up that corroborates Ethiopia’s Model we discussed about. We just can not rule out or ignore the strength of such a model that worked wonders in China by lifting 10+ million people out of poverty in the past three consecutive years.

    “..In the last parliamentary election, the EPRDF and its allies won all but two of 547 available seats. The party is emphatically statist when it comes to development, and it relies on a relatively narrow social base, but its organization is extraordinary in political and coercive terms. The latter is derived from decades of armed struggle and close cooperation with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which advised the EPRDF in its drive to recruit five million new members between 2005 and 2010 and has developed deep party-to-party ties. There is no state in Africa where talk of a “China Model” sounds more substantive than in Ethiopia under EPRDF rule…”

    I am half Oromo half Amhara
    I and my friends did read some of your recent comments. You do not have the morality to despise Oromos. You can criticize the writer alone. Like any other ethnic groups Oromos have their own weakness and strength. The writer is referring to the strong side of Gheda cultural governance tradition. Due to historical reasons Amharas have better, geographical, cultural and psychological attachments with Oromos than Tigreans. Therefore Amharas have better understandings about both Oromos and Tigres than Tigreans have. Because of this I and my friends have ample understanding that Amaharas are better interconnecting buffer zones for Ethiopianity.And that is why TPLF,EPLF and their foreign masters want to attack Amhara primarily and break up the interconnecting glue of Ethiopianity. Fortuantely while I was in university I had the opportunity to have the teachings of Orthodox religion. So what you talk about Zion and the arch of covenant where the ten commandments are written is contradictory because of the past and present barbaric deeds of TPLF and Tigrean elite.After all God created human beings in his own image and likeness.Hence the human heart it self is the very vital arch of covenant. First cleanse your heart from hatred, division, conceit and other bad things before you brag about Zion. Are TPLFites and Tigrean elites governed by the Ten Commandments? Not at all according to their past and present evil deeds.You mentioned መቀማት (መንጠቅ, grab) as the motto of TPLF. During our discussion you know what one of our politically farsighted friend told us? The ten commandments of TPLF is almost taken from THE PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION. Therefore I and my friends understand your Zion in that sense. THE PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION is TPLFites play-book. TPLFites have been governing Ethiopia and its peoples for the last 24 years by referring the above play-book. You plunder Ethiopia day and night without shame because this is your play-book. You secretly print money way far beyond the economy can support. You have made Ethiopian economy virtually a cash economy. The economy is insane and terminally ill. As a thug regime you monopoly control this highly inflated money-supply chain in order to carry out ethnically based asset-grab by using your highly inflated fiat-money. How comes the Tigreans control this much of the economy with in 24 years? Because they are exceptionally so genius?This is what you said መቀማት (መንጠቅ, grab) using political and military power. You are justifying grabbing or looting as far as some one has absolute power.
    This is what happens when irresponsible and corrupt thugs like TPLF cling to power.
    Pretence or perversion is also one of your ten-commandments taken from your play-book. When pretence fails to work you resort to power as plan-b. Therefore, please stop despising innocent Oromos. Please stop presenting yourself as if you are moral and religious. Ethiopians please wake up and see what is going on. We have to fight this ethno-centric corrupt and looting apartheid regime and get our freedom.

    Isaias Afewerki had used tens of thousands of the Tigrayan youth and farmers as cannon fodder in his war for power. These Tigrayan lives were sacrificed because the TPLF leadership is Eritrean by blood and had not cared about the tremendous loss of Tigrayan lives. I know many Tigrayans complain that the TPLF is still an Eritrean and its leadership is controlled by Eritreans. I do not think that the Tigrayans will be able to free the TPLF from the Eritrean leadership and make it a truly Tigrayan political force. That is why the constant demand and pressure the Tigrayans apply on the Eritrean TPLF leadership to go to war with Isaias Afewerki is failing. The recent propaganda exercise/stuff on the TPLF air strike at the Eritrean gold mines are meant to appease the Tigrayan nationalists who are pressing for war against Afewerki. But Ethiopians know that the whole story is part of the usual lies manufactureed by the TPLF propaganda machine modelled after the Nazi one. The Tigrayan nationalists like `Dawi, Dilwenberu and co.` will only continue to be the foot soldiers of the TPLF controlled by the Eritrean leadership.

    I have to admit our friend’s Anceint’s above statement on Gheda has cracked me up.

    What can I say – he is brilliant with words even though the above borderlines to Amara/Tigre chauvinism for the fainthearted however, I don’t think that is his intention and we don’t have to take it that way as you tried to do.

    In about a month a fake election will be held in Ethiopia by TPLF. The financiers, backers and installers of the TPLF regime, USA, UK and EU, very well know that in reality there is no election in Ethiopia as all opposition parties have been banned and can not compete. Still these western countries are silently observing developments, they take no actions, and continue supporting the TPLF regime to stay in power. It seems the western countries want to indefinitely perpetuate oppression, terror,killings and misery in Ethiopia and have assured the TPLF regime in private: “you can do all you want, kill as many Ethiopians as you want, we will keep supporting you anyway. Dont worry.” At least their actions or lack of actions against TPLF must be interpreted that way.

    So what should the opposition do ?

    It is perhaps necessary to increasingly expose these western countries before the international community, and particularly among African countries. These western countries are killing and oppressing our people using TPLF as a tool.

    The Tigrayans have shed their blood and gotten their bones crushed for the cause of Isaias Afewerki and the EPLF. That is why Isaias had created his Tigrayan satellite organizatio called the TPLF. The Eritreans are still controlling and leading the TPLF and have managed to tow the Tigrayans. The Tigrayans have to swallow this bitter fact and avoid pointing their fingers at Isaias.

    Attempts to paint the so called “Oromo Democratic culture” and the “Gaada” system with rose colors totally contradicts historical evidence collected by “white” and “Arab” as well as “Somali”, “Hebrew” and “Tigray Tigrigne” chronicles.All of the above concluded the fact that the “Gaada” led “Lubas” inflicted untold destruction and violence upon non Oromo communities and occupied their lands by force.Today, we harshly treat what is going on in South Africa, but what OPDO, OLF and TPLF did in Arbagugu, Water, Kelem/Gimbi, Assosa, Jimma, etc. wont be forgotten.
