    “Kinijit is dead”, “Kinijit is broken beyond repair”, “Kinijit is hopeless” some pundits were saying. Well today these so called experts were proven to be wrong. Though they were incarcerated for two years; though they were stolen the name of “Kinijit”, though some among them acted unappropriately and damaged the credibility of the organization, Kinijit executives picked up the pieces, slowly, methotically and with great wisdom brought all supporters of Kinijit, re-organized the party and came out unified, more stronger, more civilized to bring change in Ethiopia under a new name UDI, which is now an embodiment of KINIJIT. Kinijit is not dead, but came out stronger under the UDJ.

    “The Peaceful struggle is not working”, ” The UDH has to disband and let Ginbot 7 take the torch”, “What the UDJ is doing is begging the weyanes and living in slavery..” some were saying. Well today, these people were proven dead wrong. The peaceful struggle is working. Ethiopians are peaefully organized in all regions to build a free, democractic and UNITED ethiopia.

    Today we have a message for all Ethiopians that persistence will pay off. That giving up is not an option. Today we have crossed one mile. We should celebrate for that.Tomorrow the next journey will continue. We must all be ready to join our ethiopian brothers and sisters who are currently struggling dictatroship in Ethiopia.

    Today is a clear indication that something real is taking place in Ethiopia. Let not those make us discouraged and confused. Let us all be ready for teh next step, to peacefully move Ethiopia to a better future.

    We have brave democracy soldiers in Ethiopia. In Addis Ababa, Gonder, Wellega, Tigray, Afar, Jijiga ….Let us join them in solidarity and let us together bring the Tensae of Ethiopia.

    TOGETHER WE CAN DO IT !

    Birtukan Mideksa -A lioness that has no fear to walk in the land of TPLF wildebeest. In the history of Kinijit where many men failed to show courage a single female keeps on charging forward carrying the torch for her motherland that woman is Bertukan Mideksa.

    To all UDJ leadership and supporters, toady not only your parents but your motherland and fellow countrymen are proud of you!

    To all –Woyane and their cadres who are true enemies of Ethiopia, the shameless Hailu Shawl clan and diehard EPRPs who behind time and a political cancer for our country. Today you have witnessed what true Ethiopians can do for their country, I challenge you do same instead of your running your mouth on smear campaign

    God Bless Ethiopia

    Amazing how Elias Kefle of Ethiopian Review has exposed his true identity finally. The same person who was nominating Isays Afewroki man of they year not talking trash on any oppostion that is not aknoledging Shabya as a legitimate regime

    Ethiopian Review should be a dedicated page for the fallen heros of SHABYA who are a direct cousins of TPLF bandas

    UDJ is just the same with that of DERG regime becouse in it’s members there is no any body representing the people of somali who occuppy the largest region of ethiopia and represent a large number of population ,there is no AFAR ,SIDAMA and other minority ethnic nations ,but UDJ should know that Ethiopia is not the one that you know during DERG .we can understand what you want from your senior party members who represent a few highland ethnic nations.sorry we donot have a position for you today .

    The end of the game!You shameless people the same power structure was disclosed 2 months before.Birtuakn and Gizachew, let alone to lead a meaningful oppossion,they cannot lead thier private lives properly.You missed the last chance of reconciliation with Kinijit by not electing Dr.Yacob.The true sons and daughters of Ethiopia are working silently as usual with their 1 Million members.Kinijities and Ethiopians will have Zero tolernace to work with Weyane Messengers like Birtukan, Gizachew, Andargachew,Birhanu and thier trojan horses like Hialu Araya, Admasu Gebeyehu,etc.We learened from Lidetu.
    We will line behind Hailu and bring unity, democracy and peace to Ethiopia!!!!!!!!!!!!

    almaz: Do you think religion is individual agenda? It represents 50% of Ethiopia in case you do not know.

    Bellal et al. one thing you missed is the party is not organized in terms of ethnic, religious or otherwise. Ethnic affilation is the slogan and organizational poltical chart of the TPLF. One can associate and become a member regardless of his ethnic or religious background.so is the party above mentioned.

    But I have something to add for the Bertukanists. Remember this party has been charted by Mesfin Woldemariam who adovocated from the start for the establishment of Bertukanism. Do not play with this innocent fresh law school graduate. One thing is certain Meles is also using her as a tool for his pseudo democratic governance and buy western media.

    Let me say this, Kinijit is dead because it died with in itself. It is sad that it remains divided and that is good only for the TPLF. For us Kinijit was the only HOPE we had. And people died for the cause of this HOPE.

    I personally believe the Bertukanists are the other side of the coin of the Lidetu et al who are toys and running dogs of Meles.

    There shall be a day as it was the day for TPLF to step up to the Menelik Palace.
    Ethiopian History dictates that that day comes through a barrel of a gun. HOPE never subsides
    Yegna Tesfa…Tesfa alemekuretachin new. and we shall triumph
    We will teach Meles the language he understands. Come and join us along western Ethiopia. We will come as the TPLF comes the the Menelik Palace. It is only a question of time. History tells us that power of the people doesnot come by begging a Dictator to conduct a public meeting and organize a party as the Bertukanists did.The begging becomes fruitful only at the will and the mercy and whim of Meles. That is not opposition. That is loyality in the name of opposition. Lidetu already is doing it and I think the Bertukanists are repeating Lidetu. Lidetu would have been enough to cheat the Ethiopian people. I feel sad for the Bertukanists being another long arm of Meles
