KNA Public Relations Office | December 12, 2006

Denver Kinijit Colorado supporters conducted a vibrant town hall meeting Sunday, December 10, 2006 to discuss a range of topics related to democratic, human rights, good governance and regional security issues of Ethiopia.

Kinijit North America Support Group chairman Ato Aklog Limenih, and Kinijit International Secretary General Ato Berhane Mewa were invited guests. Both leaders made compelling presentation on current issues and gave forward-looking plans designed to energize Kinijit’s role as the foremost advocate of democracy in Ethiopia.

The participants and panel, rather than dwelling on the unfortunate situation caused by individuals in the North America and Denver support organizations, resolved to move ahead in the urgent task of democratizing the support group’s operation. Accordingly, a committee was established to organize democratic election. There was unanimous agreement in that lack of and commitment to democratic practice in the KNA support organization was the culprit behind its pathetic performance and the disenfranchisement of supporters.

The new KNA chairman disclosed that a modern, transparent and accountable management structure that will usher in an era of dynamism has passed the design stage and is being implemented. “This”?, Ato Aklog said, “will reinvigorate supporter confidence and trigger a renewed sense of commitment to the aspiration of 77 million Ethiopians and the beloved leaders of Kinijit who continue to languish in prison.

    I like to hear this type of news. We don’t need people who does not work and who does not allow others to work. That was what was happing for the last one and half year.

    That is great! Keep it up Kinijit. Kinijit is Sprite. The Sprite, that captured millions and millions of Ethiopians imagination of one and strong Ethiopia. It takes selfless, democratic and practical leaders to move Kinijit forward. The Kinijit leaders in Kaliti have that quality. That is why they managed to made Kinijit a hope for Ethiopia. Now, the leaders in Diaspora should follow the same way. I believe that is happening these days and I would say keep it up Kinijit.

    I have never heard and learnt a whole great educational speech given by His Excellency Ato Birhane Mewa here in the USA. He is articulate, honest and to the point: need for unified struggle to overcome the dictatorial rule of Meles. I found him still to be the old Birhane Mewa, dedicated, highly spirited, energetic and obidient to the causes of Kinijit as he was to stand for the hundreds of thousands of Ethiopian business people for their rights against the institutions of EPRDF’s business empire. As usual is is aproven heroe of Ethiopia. Bye the way who has created the Urban social base for Kinijit. Isn’t the Ethiopian Chamber of Commerce and Addis Ababa chamber of commerce that played a role to moblize the members behined the two major elections. He is the prominent leader of the two chambers to depart from EPRDF’s domination and direct interfirence. Those who claim him as agent of EPRDF are nothing but EPRDF themselves. We in Colorado have strong confidence in hin and Andargachew, they are men of deeds and not words and they will prove themselves in the future.

    The so called big lady of Kinijit and her effort to rally some of the UEDF people in her side was fruitless. Didn’t she saw the Amsterdam Ethiopian web site enviting both Andargachew Tsige abd Dr. Nege Gobeze fon current situations of Ethiopia. wake up lady, you are behind the strugle leave alone to lead.

    Thank you all, Ato Birhane and Ato Aklog.

    What is your point Shaleqa, I know you are not with Woyane, we (Kinijit supporters) were asking repetedely for all chapters to be democratically re-organized and the management and financial system of the diaspora KINIJIT to be modern and up to date, if you beleive in democracy then you should ask mebers to elect you again to participate in the management but if you are responsible for the loss of money ask the current transparent and responsible leadership to give you second chance. Otherwise dont play Woyane game here in America and dont waste your preciouse time, because the situation did not allow you to go the old way. If you are accountable for the money losses or for misleading the diaspora against the interest of its elected leaders in Ethiopia, trust me you will be tortured physically as well as mentally. So ask your apology and make history for your own sake here and in heaven too.
