JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Ethiopia’s government on Friday lifted a state of emergency imposed in October after hundreds of people were killed in anti-government protests demanding wider political freedoms. It was some of the country’s worst violence since the ruling party came to power in 1991.

Lawmakers in the East African nation voted to end the emergency law that restricted a number of rights and led to the arrests of more than 21,000 people. It also hurt one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies.

More than 600 people were killed in nearly a year of protests that first ignited in the Oromia region and spread into the Amhara region and the capital, Addis Ababa. Demands included an end arbitrary arrests and respect for regional autonomy.

The state of emergency was imposed after a deadly stampede at a religious celebration in October as police confronted protesters. The emergency law was extended in March.

“We have been able to deal with armed terrorists, anti-peace elements and troublemakers,” Defense Minister Siraj Fegessa said, adding that the government was now able to deal with “a few” remaining security threats.

The minister said more than 8,000 people are still behind bars and are being prosecuted for crimes they are accused of committing during the unrest.

Rights groups have claimed that many people were beaten and subjected to arbitrary detentions under the emergency law. The government has maintained that those arrested by mistake were released and those who unwillingly took part in the unrest were released after what it described as “trainings.”

Restrictions under the state of emergency included arbitrary arrests without court orders; limits on radio, television and theater; and dawn-to-dusk prohibitions on unauthorized movements around infrastructure facilities and factories.

  1. That is something never needed anyway but now citizens can go about doing their daily chores without the need to look over their shoulders. It is very sad though that those who went out there and shoot senselessly at every youth in sight during the protest are not brought to court. I am saying this because the government’s body tasked to investigate the violence had reported the use of excess force by the police. All we hear is detentions and prosecutions of those caught protesting. What I am also hearing now is that those who gave the order to shoot protesters are moved to different job assignments so they are no more in public view.

    All in all, I welcome the lift.

    • Ittu Aba Farda,

      i think u lived for long long time in America u forget how in Africa people behaving .. in America when u call them for protest they bring child with stroller…it is totally peaceful protest…

      in oromo irreecha protest .. number one the protester didnt have permit to protest they should not risk other people life in danger by protesting in this big event ..

      if u see the protester the police told them so many time to stop but they push and they transpass and take over the stage what the police what them to do .. just set and watch them … just for one second imagine if anarchy take over and if those hooligan start burning house and industry in Amerrica u will say it is okay the insurance will pay in Ethiopia their is no insurance instead of burning one shop u better kill the owner because without that one shop they become homeless that means when ever ur burn one property u r killing ten family we dont have the luxury to say we should tolerate them no we have to stop them they star.. how in hell would u stop the frost fire ? by stopping the first matchstick fire .. if u say it is only a matchstick fire and let the hooligan play with fire then u will have frost fire that u cant control …

      now i will ask u one more time how many people died during irreecha event without counting those who jump off the cliff and who harmed by the crowed i am only taking about bullet wound i dont think the police even fire one bullet ,,, bu ti want to hear it from u u might know better then me.. so tell us how many people died by police bullet… and compere that if the police lost control and revolution started and if we become Syria or Somalia how many people would have died.. and tell me which is better ….

      • I think you know me by now that to me human life is priceless. Take those who perished during the unrest. What did they get for dying? Nothing, right? Those who pulled the trigger, what did they get? They created more enemies, right? This is a lose-lose senseless violence on both sides. My question was why the regime did not bring those who ordered their police to use excess force after it admitted that was the case? You see. You, I and the whole world have been hearing was such number of people were arrested, such and such individuals have been sentenced to lengthy prison terms for participating and inciting violence. We hear that almost on a weekly basis. So where is the other side being taken to court? I did not make this up. It is right there in the report of the human rights body recognized by the regime. Or was it just a child play. You see. Human life is not a child play. I thought senseless killings of young people is past history but the reality on the ground is telling me otherwise. I feel helpless to the brink of hopelessness. I still mourn the death of many young people who were callously butchered by the demonic Mengistu in the 1970’s and 80’s. And now this? Sometimes I feel like turn every news about the old country off and go on to live what is left from my Almighty Blessed life on this good earth. When I hear losing more and more of my contemporaries almost on a monthly basis that reminds me once again that the last day is not too far into the future. When I hear news of industrialization all I have been saying was and is Bravo!!! Bravo!!!! But there is nothing that makes me swallow the senseless demise of young people. As a father of two wonderful children and now a proud grandfather I will have nothing but to mourn those dead young countrymen. I have no stomach to take it easily just as a passing news. They are dead leaving their parents with no one to look after them during their advancing age. Their children are their only safety net, their only social security, And now they are no more, gone in their hundreds. Woe! Woe! Woe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • @Ittu Aba Farda

          Woyana have killed far more people then any othe Ethiopia past regime, these woyana dogs have also sold thousands of innocent Ethiopian woman to Arabia markets to be abused and rape, so No need to support these mass woman killers they’re the curse of God, the land and the people, the sooner woyana is crushed the better they be peace in the Horn.

      • I may add this also. I am quite sure you have read what I wrote about the sad consequences of the violence when it happened months ago. I had held both those who pulled the deadly trigger and also those who incited the hopeless and irate youth to do harm to factories and other business settings sharing equitable responsibility. Those social media ‘freedom fighters’ from their comfy homes here in the Good Ole USA, Asmara and Cairo had done their sinister task of driving the youth into a raging inferno. They thought it was time to ignite a chaotic environment so they can go in there to carve a territory to call it their own personal fiefdom. They were going around giving interviews to major news papers and media outlets saying outrageous thing like ‘burning down factories is only confined to those owned by the regime or those connected to it’. How do they know that? That means those who went to work for the factories owned by the regime or those connected to it are not entitled to make a living? That means those poor workers are enemies. That is the only was the way I look at it. That tells me that with these groups being successful, better days are not and will be ahead for the suffering common man/woman in the old country. All this is the result of ill conceived ethnic politics. All I hear these days is insults individuals hurling at others denigrating their ethnicity. You Oromo this, you Amhara that, you Tigray of this and that kind. They don’t even cringe when they do that but it has been making me cringe so painful to utter disgust.

        • @Ittu Aba Farda

          nobody incited the protesters your believing woyana pure propaganda, these protesters had enough of the 25 long years of woyana dictatorial rule in Ethiopia which only brought poverty, misery and the exploitation of the people.

          • Ancient Somali,

            You are entitled to your civil opinion and please allow me to be entitled with the same right. That is not a privilege but an inviolable right. We should all avoid the notion that will perpetuate the existing lack of such Almighty given rights.

      • Ash, Hagos Shiftew from Hagos,

        How come a rotten mass murderer Shifta from Houzen lecturers people on peaceful protest? How did you savage Woyane thugs came to our territory? Did they come waving flags? You came killing and looting every one and everything on yy way. You should thank those protesters for not carrying AK-47. But the situation has changed dramatically and carrying Ak-47 is a must to protect our people from Woyane mass murderers. One can take out Woyane Tigres from Dedebit but he can’t take out Dedebit from Woyane Tigre.

        The little agamido,

        Please get lost. You are nothing but a a small brain damaged crooked Woyane thug!

        • Doma head

          u r not an honest person other wise u will not compere ur father Mengistu with the Golden race.

          Mengistu did not allowed TPLF to protest peacefully in Addis Ababa had ur father allowed a peaceful demonstration then TPLF had no right to carry AK-47

          ON the other hand TPLF allowed u a peaceful demonstration therefore u have no right to carry AK-47

          again the protester are allowed the other day in Addis Ababa the whole business community shut down their store no body died because TPLF respect peaceful protest and the people win and TPLF cancelled the tax hike

          • ash aka Adigrat Shiftaw Hagos,

            Golden race? Beles eating, toilet cleaning dumpster diver from Houzen golden race? I don’t consider you any better than a church mouse . You had never seen a gold, let alone be a golden race, before you entered Gonder wearing your lice infested Abujedi.

            Setting former Eritrean slaves and daily labors like you without proper education is very dangerous. In this regard, I am very disappointed with your former owners. Case in point agame Shiftaw from Houzen. For us you are nothing more than a hungry beggar or locust at best that leaves its territory in search of food. Thy yourself.
            Are you available this weekend? I need qualified trash collector for a day? You will be feed and I will give some old clothes to do ‘Lewache’ in the streets of Addis.

      • @ash

        BS the protesters were not violent they were peaceful even if they were violent you can’t use live bullets since there’s other ways controlling protesters like using water cannon and teargas etc.

        • Ancient Somali.

          did the protester did not take over the stage,,, did the protester did not burn down the factory and burn the city.. then r u saying to me the police set and watch them and give them a water shower to wash their body. how effective it would be if they get water cannon and teargas it would be everyday job .. like other place we have no time for this Bs …for the last ten month no body died if the tplf evil why did not kill for the last ten years..

          • @ash

            Are you saying it was alright for woyana to use overwhelming excessive and lethal force to crush the protest whatever if they were peaceful or not?

            The people who attended the annual Irreecha festival were peaceful Oromos since they were there to celebrate their religious festival but some Oromo community elders who were too close to woyana wanted to delivery speeches on behalf of woyana and this is where all trouble kicked off since the protesters demanded the traitors elders to leave the stage which I believe they have every right to do so.

            Ps those who burned down foreign factories again they had every right to do since the foreigners and woyana are looting the resources of Ethiopia.

            Anyway can you plz tell us why did TPLF changed their demands for independence when they reached the gate of Addis Ababa? I thought TPLF always wanted independence like Shabia.

            I truly believe Amhara and Oromos can actually sort out their misunderstanding it’s only woyana who’s causing problems between them, woyana says the Oromos are narrow-minded who seek to disintegrate Ethiopia while Woyana says the Amharas are chauvinists who seek to restore the old Ethiopia so the Tigrayan elites can present themselves as the only political movement in Ethiopia that could provide the stability.

            But the problem is nobody wants woyana even the minority ethnic groups like Tigrai, Afar, Somali, aderi dnt want woyana, so plz tell us what can we do for woyana to leave us in peace, ALL OPTIONS ARE ON THE TABLE.

          • Ancient Somal

            i dont have to answer anything u incriminated urself by saying the hooligan have the right to burn the factory..

            how many time should i tell u it is not the factory they r burning they r killing 100,000 workers and family livelihood .. to me when u burn one factory u r killing 100,000 so u want TPLF army to watch this hooligan to burn the factory down.. how about ur father work in that factory and he have ten children and now he cant feed them what would u say about that.. i know u going to run about freedom come first before ur father or mother while driving ur comfortable taxi in dc.. go head make my day.. i have no mercy when it come to my people ..i have no friend my only guidance is the ugly truth … anciant u know i love u.. but this time u r dead wrong

          • @ash
            The factory workers were the one who were leading the protests, it seems they obviously didn’t like the foreigners who acquired their land from woyana very cheaply otherwise why would they burn it down their only lively hood? see your not making any sense man.

            If the foreign owned factories were good source of money for the locals then there shouldn’t be any reason for them to burn it down.

          • Ancient Somali

            The factory worker also r the one who killed other factory workers .. the same way the burn their own property … they just want to make a point so they start killing to blame TPLF … THIS IS PROVEN

          • @Ash
            The entire world knows the crimes of woyana, so there’s no reason for anyone to blame any crimes on woyana.

            Woyana committed crimes against humanity in Ogaden in 2007, so after the overthrown of woyana we shall bring all Tigrai woyana thugs who raped our woman and burned down our towns back to Ogaden to be hanged, woyana will not hide under the good name of Tigray and the Tigrai will not defend woyana crimes.

    • Ittu aka Goitom,

      Here you come again to beat your drum as if something miraculous has happened. Woyane thugs need mouth pieces like you who are retired and seat behind their computers and beat their drums when ever a propaganda piece is released for western consumption. I couldn’t help but lough when you respond the criticism from Ash, agamido Shifta from houzen. Such is the disadvantage of an old age. You should try to do something meaningful. Of course, we don’t expect anything fruitful from a Banda who lead Italians all the way to Addis/Finfine.

  2. Nothing has changed. Our country is under state of emergency for the last twenty six years. TPLF is a foreign terrorist entity and without its complete annihilation there will be no peace. Woyane Tigre invaders are are foreigners and our people won’t rest until they are headed to Dedebit, their natural habitat.

    Millions have been killed including children and women. Thousands have injured including infants and elderly. Thousands have been incarcerated including the true sons of the country like Merera Guidina, Adargachew Tsige, Bekele Gerba, Andualem Arage, Abdurham Ali , Colenel Demeke, and thousands of others while the lice infested Woyane barbarians are enjoying their loots.

    The country is under Tigre Woyane mass looters and mass murderers and there won’t be peace until the criminals are brought to justice. How can we forget our brothers and sisters who have been murdered by Woyane snipers in Gonder and Gojam? How we forget our brothers and sisters who were gun down from helicopters while celebrating the Ericha holiday? How we forget the Somali brothers and sisters who were butchered like cows and their bodies were treated like that of a pig? How can we forget the Agnuk brothers and sisters in Gambella who were slaughtered by TPLF agames under the order of the late monkey face mass killer? We won’t forget. We only rest when the lice infested, money hungry, mass looters and murderers Woyane thugs are brought to justice!!! As long as Woyane Tigre infestation of our territory continues, our fight to send them to their natural habitat will continue.

    Aluta Continua!!!!!

  3. These woyana dogs the only thing they ever understood is ak47 but the million question is who’s willing to break that shackles of woyana and lead our people to freedom and happiness?

    Well let’s pray brother @hope finishes his antibiotics.

  4. ITTU Aba Farda,

    i am few who respect and value ur point is the topic ..

    {{The search for the truth is not for the faint hearted.}} Vincent D’Onofrio

    Oba Ittu , i am advicing u to stop reading this is the ugly truth i am going to tell u… if u have faint heart… i strongly advice u to stop read. because it going to be nothing but the ugly truth..

    number one police have the right to kill u…this fact must be drill to every Ethiopian youth .. the police have the power next to God to kill u … when they tell u stop u stop but if u run … u r not running from the police u r running from the law u r breaking the law … if they shoot u or blood become a dog blood … yes, Ethiopian government to cool down the public and satisfied the international idiot called human right .. he have to save we r investigating the police if the police investigated and jailed or punished who is going to protect u next time

    even in America have gun and they pointing the gun to ur face and they telling u to stop.. try to run away or resisted arrest and tell me what happened to u next..

    this is not a joke,,, we r talking about not refusing police order we r talking breaking the law.. at that time when the police telling u stop … not the police but the law is telling u to stop .. the police only representing the law .. if u break the law u have nothing we r not better then animal even Animal are better then us without the law.. u know what happened in Rwanda when the law and order break down 100,000 people died in just 100 days …. look what happened to Sryia when the law and order break down…

    i ask u at most respect how many people died during oromo irreecha 2016 by police bullet .. u didnt answer so i will ask u again how many people die … u might not know number so why not guess the number and compere that number how many people would have died if the police didnot took deadly force and lost the control and law and order break down anarchy take over how many people would have died …

    i know u going to tell me Ethiopian people love each other they will not commit genocide that was what the Syrian people said to each other that is what the Somalian said to each other they r one people one language all this did not help them when law and order break up… now thing Ethiopia with all her multi ethnic groups … so i need ur best answer in the worst case scenario… if law and order break down how many people would guess died that is my question and i am expecting u to answer if u dont that is okay to i will considered it is answer.. i will give the answer my self 1 million people will die and 29 million will be refugee and 54 million would be homeless this is default answer if u have another answer be my guest…

    as i told u when u burn one shop or property this is like killing ten family they have no insurance so if u burn their life time earning in one night u make them homeless it is not better to kill them then to make them homeless… since u r Americanised u think it is only property… for me i am thinking gu killed ten people so the what the police going to do to stop u from burning reading ur right and democratic obligation or shoot to kill to stop u from burning the poor man property…

    as i said the protester have the right to protest but not to break the law if they break the law they r taking their life in their own hand there was 4 million people in the irreecha of course not all of them were protesting but few agitated the uprising and the euphoria caught on … u cant help it mob mentality come in and the protest become 4 million strong against 10 police officer.. now tell me u have to have iron nerve not to shoot to protect yourself from 4 million strong… we can sit here and become Monday-morning quarterback the question would u stand in front of raging bull 4 million strong … would u.. so dont pass a judgement about the police and even compering them with our dear father mengistu haile mariam

    the deference between our dear father vs the golden race

    mengistu will kill u while seating at home doing nothing
    Golden race they dont kill if u dont break the law .. to break the law u have to go to the protest.. and break the law… who ask u to go to protest u have a chance to run away from protest when it become violence when they start throwing rock u should go home be safe but if u hang around to see u will be collateral damaged in irreecha the people had the chance to go home when they see thing becoming violence and over they should have gone home.. instead they stayed no body kill while u r at home therefore had they keept themselves from violence nothing would have happened.to them..

    about under age kids i will blame the mother and the father who r responsible for the under age kids to go to protest ..

    irreecha was never celebrated under Amhara rule but TPLF allowed the oromo to enjoy their culture for the last 26years nothing happened in irreecha it is not the oromo business to keep irreecha out of violence and make it peaceful so to attract million of people now u destroyed ur own irreecha how about no body come how about the police said we r not responsible for any thing and refused to keep the peace in irreecha and left it for hooligan … the Smart Gondar they never destory their own Orthodox festival it become troust attraction million people come there to celebrate the festival no politic involved .. but the idiot OLF destroyed their own irreecha.. i am sorry it is too long so i will stop here i have a lot to say but what is the point u will not answer a simple question…

    a. can a police have the right to use a deadly force? if the answer is no then why they have Gun

    b. do the protester while the burning someone property can the police shoot at them to stop them?

    c. how many people would have died if law and order break in Ethiopia and anarchy take over Vs police shooting compere those two

    • agame shiftaw hagos,

      What are you talking about? Get help removing the bullets from your head. It is making you delusional and phony. I don’t know how you escaped Eritreans concentration camp. They shouldn’t have allowed you to mix with humans. I don’t even think you are capable of living with heyenas. The golden race? ha ha.

    • ash,

      One thing it should be done by those who are willing to engage in civil conversations with each other is ignore those Isaias/Sisi/Wahhabi troika running dogs. It shows that they are paid by the how and number of times they sling disgusting insults at others. Just look at them. They even given gave a name like ‘Goitom’. I thought that was a pejorative term like the ‘f’ word they have been handing out to me like candy. But my longtime friend told me that it is a typical name from his region of Tigray. Right? It shows how racist these operatives are. It reminds me a reaction I got from a naive citizen years ago. She was a colleague at work and saw the wrist watch I was wearing. It was made by Leroy which was the watch maker for Napoleon and his navy. Mine was made in the 1920’s and as an avid watch collector I got it from an antic seller in the 1970’s. It has a grand complication like the one you see on IWC, Patek Phillipe or Breguet. So when I told her the name was Leroy I could see her disqualifying reaction on her face. You see. The name Leroy is common among our African American brothers. So in her opinion my wrist watch is not worth much. Boy, was she wrong? The same thing here. They think if they slap a person’s name on me I would not worth much or I should be mercilessly extirpated. They missed the fact that one name is as good as another for parents who chose that name for their children. That is unless you purposely name your son Hitler or Mussolini or for that matter Mengistu Haile Marium. But that is their mission assigned by their masters I mentioned above. So just ignore them and let them continue making themselves laughing stocks to the amusement of readers at large.

      I will have one question for you(not personal) if you respond to this comment.

      • Ittu aka Goitom,

        Very timely and grand fatherly advice to Hagos. What is a blood relation is for , if not at depressing times like this. I thank you for lifting the spirit of the little Woyane thug.

        I am a bit curious about the Italian watch you mentioned. Could it be a gift from Mussolini for serving him as a guide during Italian occupation? I don’t like to use the word Banda. I am just curious.

          • Ancient Somalia,

            I really respect Ittu , but the only problem I have with him is that he pretends to be an Oromo which he isn’t. I am not trying to demonize him in any way but sometimes it is important to call a spad a spad. Ash is a scared Woyane thug who worries too much about himself and his thugs.

          • @Damo
            I respect Ittu myself since he’s a senior citizen, I clearly do value his deep knowledge of Ethiopia since he has lived in three different regimes namely haile selassie, mengistu and obviously under woyana.

            regarding his ethnic background I think hes Oromo because of his deep knowledge of city of Dire Dawa also I do witness sometimes he shows sympathetic towards the victims of woyana which itself it’s clear he’s anti woyana I believe so.

      • Ittu Aba Farda,

        i enjoy reading ur story… even so i dont agree most of your policy and view about protester… go head ask me a question i am about question but i might not answer it now because i already too late.. i have to go.. but i will promised to answer it later …anything that might help mama Ethiopia i am willing to answer

        DONT worry about Domahead he is acting doma head

        • ash,

          The question is about the taxation law and system in the old country. There has not been put out there for public consumption since I can remember. I have close relatives who have been traders and small/medium size shop owners for decades. They have been paying taxes of this or that nature for decades. Their used to be assessed by someone from the ‘goomrook’ department and they paid based on that assessment, If they found that the assessment was too high and they used to go to the department and plea their case. They used to take their traditional ledger with them. in most cases the assessments were modified or otherwise they close their shop and move somewhere else. I understand that there are published penal and civil legal books that can be bought at book stores. I am not sure if there is such publication regarding taxes. You see. My wife and I used to go to the tax preparer’s office to do our annual tax returns. That was until about 30 years ago. Since then I have doing it myself. We were audited only once and even then nothing wrong was found with it. That is because everything you need is publicly available. I used to spend hours at the local library delving into current publications. Now everything is available online. What I found from the old country is a meager salary tax calculator. Why so?

          Now one thing I have heard from own merchant relatives is this rumor that there is rampant nepotism in the assessment decisions. Quite a few organizations that were charities are now mega businesses that own multibillion dollar factories and stores. There hasn’t been any publication that shows their income statements and tax returns. One such outfit they bring up quite often is EFFORT. Because of the open ‘secret’ operation of this organization many of them don’t believe it pays a fair share of taxes. I understand that it stands for Endowment Fund for the Rehabilitation of Tigray. They also told me that there are tens of thousands who work at the factories and businesses owned by this outfit. As usual they get my kudos for that. I have said this many times before. I don’t really care who goes in there and open a factory creating job opportunities. I really don’t. But they have to pay all due and fair taxes. But almost all of my relatives don’t think this organization has been paying any taxes because there is no public record for everyone can see. Why so? They think the group is reaping tens of millions of dollars in profit under the guise of a charity organization to avoid taxes. That is when they pay sometimes 30 cents for every dollar they make from the grueling retailing business activities. They are utterly vexed by such partiality, impropriety so to say. How so? If such visibly behemoth organization has been paying taxes and the allegations are so rampant why does it not make its tax return public which can be verified by independent auditors? I am going to repeat myself. I have no problem with its factories and I will never, ever complain to anyone who is opening factories there. I swear I will never do that because factories and industrialization by extension, is the primary tool of my peaceful struggle. History has shown that agriculture as the main economy has failed to create enough middle class to become a dominant force but industrialization has proven itself to be able do so. Is EFFORT paying taxes? If so, where is the proof? That is the copy of the official tax return. That was my question.

          • Dear Ittu Aba Farda,

            The fact that you advocate for peaceful resolution of conflict is appreciable. Any one in his right mind would not chose violence over peace; and the average person is not born with a criminal atavistic mentality. Most of us criticizing the tigre minority regime are Ethiopians longing for peace but the tigre regime is a regime of violence,horror, intimation, and robbery. I can’t tell you what I saw on my own wide eyes what the Agazi soldiers did in a broad day light in the streets of Addis Ababa back in the days. You hate to call that country a country so long as TPLF is in full force of ravaging. People revolting against the minority thugs are individuals whose peace is robbed by TPLF. May I pose these question to you?

            1) Unlike the past, there are piles of information that one can sift through to get a very good perspective of the behavior of the tigre minority regime. Thus, in your analysis, do you think the ethnic tigre dynasty embrace a call for peaceful end of conflict ravaging the country almost for 42 years? Do you have any imagination what the possible definition of peace for the skewed minority thugs is?

            2) I often read you contrasting other foreign entities , a one time soul friends and sponsor of TPLF and the TPLF – and you oppose for them being violent to each other. First, this is not TPLF vs any foreign adversaries, if you think so you can’t preach peace for entities out of the domain. This is purely the conflict of peace yearning Ethiopians vs. the vampire TPLF. What options do you have for Ethiopians, just to be timid and pray for peace? Does that make them peaceful and TPLF a peaceful government?

            3) Do you believe TPLF is out of emergency and lifted its decree, because it is peaceful now? The regime did not answer the demands of the people yet. It is frequently hit by large scale demonstrations and armed conflicts losing its Agazi forces in battle fields.

            I raised this because I am afraid preaching peace in the land of the tigre minority dynasty is sowing a seed on a rocky ground. I am for peace but I am vehemently against timidity and exploitation. Nazret.com is a popular Ethiopians forum I am wondering you put equal emphasis on Egypt, Eritrea, etc
            with TPLF out of domain. Can’t we have the right just to talk our own domestic issue – criticize the regime that is killing and looting our people right in our motherland in Ethiopia. To me, this is knowingly or unknowingly a destruction to the focus. Those superfluous excuses are overplayed by the TPLF itself too.

          • Abebaw

            what is really ur question .. in ur house telling the tplf to give up power and give u power is the answer why not just ask it directly

            ittu I WILL come back later with my answer

          • Obbo Abebaw,

            Thank you for starting a civil conversation. I hope this is the beginning of a learning pow wow between two of us. My door is always open with ‘Come on’ sign glaring for everyone to see devoid of filthy insults.

            First of all, you have all the rights you are entitled to be a member or ardent supporter of any political group of your choice including those that peddle violence but not those religious or ethnic extremists. Thank Almighty Our Creator we do not have the first one but the possibility is there as long as the Wahhabis and their demonic tentacles is poised to go in their to carve out a caliphate with more than 100 million ‘kaddamis, al-abds/aka house nigger’ availing themselves at their service. But the 2nd type is the one menacing those historically harmonious people. There are stronger ethnic grouping than the multi-ethnic groups because external funds are readily/easily available for these hateful groups. Do you think the Sebhat/Meles cartel group would have a day in Addis/Finfine if there was a strong multi-ethnic group awaiting then in 1991? I don’t think. Somehow they had the intelligence to seek sympathy and support from the two large ethnic groups(Amharas and Oromos) and used thousands from these ethnic groups as beasts of burden to literally carry them through Gondar, Gojjam, Wello, Wellaga, Shewa regions all the way to their Promised Land, Addid/Finfine. Even the two leading Marxist theoreticians Sebhat Nega and the late PM had mentioned about it in several videos I watched online. You see. The national question has been amicably answered since the 1990’s. How effective and constructively put in place is another question. You see. That young boy from my own Itu clan does not have to go thru the shock I had to endure on my first day to school way back in early 1950’s. All of a sudden I obligated to speak and learn in the language I speak very little. I cried very hard but to no avail. That is until the headmaster and the only teacher himself came to my rescue. He calmed me down by talking to me in fluent Oromifaa and he paired me with another Christian young boy who speaks Oromifaa. And the rest is history but did not go beyond 2nd grade. Now it is all in Oromifaa. If you go Asabot, Gelemso, Ciro(Chiro, formerly Asbe Teferi) you will not find a single ‘Neftegna’ or ‘Woyane’ running the affairs there. They are all locally bred Oromos. They are mini emperors. That applies in all 9 ethnically formed regions. If you shout ‘Down, Down Woyane’ in the middle Asabot, Sebhat Nega is not the one who will take actions on you but another home grown Oromo will put a bullet between your eyes. So this tells us in a clear clarion voice that what is missing is not ethnicity but democracy for all. In just recent protest are you trying to tell me that those shot dead in Gondar were all Oromos. Those Oromos who lost their lives in Oromia were talking the same language with those in Gondar and Gojjam but in a different media. They were shouting for human and democratic rights when they too their last breath. To say that all those Oromo and Amhara young people who lost their priceless lives was for the founding the Republics Oromia and Amhara respectively is tantamount to desecrating their resting places. Again, the national question has been addressed amicably. What is missing is human and democratic rights. That is unshakable stance. I have been a neo-Gobena and other denigrating names I don’t want to repeat them on this esteemed website by my own ethnic individuals. One of them even promised me that if I ever show up anywhere in Oromia after he and his gangs found a republic as such that you will find my body dangling at the main square in the new capital Finfine. On top he had put my entire Itu clan on notice just in case they complain. I can tell you that he knows diddly-squat about my Itus. He has no idea about the dynamite he will be stepping on. But that is his and his groups Wiz of Oz fantasy. Those who are currently lambasting ‘Ethiopia out of Oromia’ are those who are hell bent on carving out a territory to call it their fiefdom. To this end they have gone scavenging in Cairo, Asmara and other Wahhabi joints. The only reason they are doing that is because Muktar Kedir had more local support than them. That is not an opinion on a glib but rather a statement of facts. That is why I want external elements to leave us alone. If you know him I would like you to tell Isaias to leave my Oromos alone and stop calling us distorted people. He should not be handing out tools of destruction to anyone who is barging at his door. If you tell me that he never gave guns to the OLF, ONLF, G7 and others, then you are stipulating something weird, freaky. That guns(not water) rain in Eritrea!!!! He should concentrate in the efforts of changing his country into the Singapore on the Horn, That is a lot on his plate. And you know what? He has one of the most industrious and disciplined citizens in the entire regions to achieve that.

            Again, you are entitled to your opinion and conviction and you should also respect mine also. You push violence and I will keep pushing peaceful struggle and harmonious co-existence with my Amhara, Somali, Afar, Tigray and many other brothers and sisters including our own Eritrean neighbors. I will keep talking to you as long as you stop hurling denigrating insults at the person you never met. You are welcome to critique my comments by which we can possibly reach at a win/win consensus. Even at this advancing age I can still learn a thing or two. I may not fast enough to go over the Birkhoff–Khinchin theorem with you but I am still open to new ideas.

          • Dear Ittu Aba Farda,

            Thank you for responding to my questions. I am just concerned what helpful strategic thinking should any genuine citizen contribute to those million Ethiopians who are bitterly against both to Shabia, TPLF and the dozen other ethnic liberation fronts such as OLF, etc. I am not ,for instance , a member of any party but as a citizen I am bitterly against both EPLF and TPLF. There was no one day or even a second where I had second thought to liking either EPLF/TPLF – I always regard them as a monstrous racist thugs. Any so-called ethnic liberation fronts for me is a racist force. If we put in par the self defense by the millions with the violent TPLF regime, I don’t think we are advocating peace. I am afraid we are enabling the tyrannical regime to go a head on its killing spree, because we are criticizing the innocent citizens who are on self-defense. As to me any honest person, has a moral obligation to call a spade a spade and tell the TPLF regime straight up you are at fault and stop the killing, empower the people with the right to choose their leader, write their constitution, define their sovereignty. This should not take a million year to say so. There is a good saying in Amharic, ” On the approach to the reign of the doomsday, the honest working ox pulling the heavy plough gets whipped while the cheating-lazy slow pulling ox earns the praise”. As much as I disapprove of violence, I disapprove the idea or the claim that innocent citizens don’t have the right to self defense against bandits breaking into their houses in the middle of night dehumanize and kill them in front of their families, rape, torture, burn and bull doze them. I am just wondering, how citizens on self defense are as criminal as the genociding TPLF regime – that is what the crime record is indicating. The only reason TPLF members not indicted so far is because they are on power, otherwise they will be charged with crime of genocide. That will be the ultimate truth. Anyway, thank you for your reply.

          • Well said, brother Abebaw!! But our friend newera tried civil discussions with Ittu, but Ittu told him that newera is advocating violence, and that ittu is advocating peace! Don’t waste your valuable time with someone that supports a group of thugs that have committed undeniable horrific crimes on the country and the citizens of Ethiopia!!!

          • I thought the discussion I am having here is with you. There is one who is trying the disrupt the discussion we are having in civilized manner. We did not invite him and he did not ask for yours or my permission. There is one saying one Harari brother told me way back in the 1960’s who I met during my school days in the Middle East. I hope I still have right if I mess it up, I profusely apologize to them. It goes like: ‘Tuuluuq baay….’. It is just like that annoying fly trying to land on your cup of tea. If you must heed his instruction to stop having the conversation we started then I bid you farewell and bet you peace. You still have your right and mine is also stays inviolable.

  5. Ash,
    We know that it is your job to find useless excuse for all the inexcusable horrendous T-TPLF crimes — from looting billions, selling the country, false accusations, planting bombs, illegal evictions, illegal permanent sterilization, incarserations, severe beatings, tortures, massacres, etc –but no matter how much you try to find an excuse, there is no good enough excuse in the world to mistreated and kill unarmed peaceful civilians!!

    • #hope

      if u r one person u r unarmed peaceful civilian … but if u r 4 million strong vs ten police the crowed become a deadly force.. u dont need weapon to kill those police officers all u need is crash them to death by crowd stampede… i will ask u one more time do u have a nerve of steal to not to shoot if u were the poice offier in front of the 4 million raging 4 million bull

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLw4xds3M_Q

      • Full of Ash,
        Just because you are paranoid and live with fear of retaliation, due to your unprecedented robberies and crimes you have committed on lawabiding Ethiopians throughout Ethiopia — IT DOESN’T GIVE YOU A RIGHT TO SLAUGHTER INNOCENT ETHIOPIANS!! THERE IS NO GOOD ENOUGH EXCUSE IN THE WORLD FOR YOUR DESPICABLE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!! NONE! NADA! ZIP! ZERO! ZILCH!!!!
        FYI: I will never open a link from you!! I know what makes you tick!!

        • Hope

          WHY not u try it in America when the police told u to stop and tell me what happened when u resisting arrest and refused to obey the police order u will not dare the police .. i saw the Ethiopian protester protesting peacefully in West while the police arresting one of the protester no body no body help the protester to safe him from the police.. the police peacefully arrested one of their protester .. why because they dont dare the police in the west

          hope, if u were in front of me i would have spit on your face for spreading false tart tart .. this is not ur dear father time mengistu haile mariam time where the police kill u while seating at home..what we r talking about is protester in the name of peaceful demonstration they start riot do u think the police seat and watch them is that what u r saying … let be honest once in our live did the so called innocent protester did not burn the factory down,,, u know burning one factory means killing 100,000 family with their children how on earth this family going to earn their living u burn down their factory… to me if u burn one shop u killing ten people no question about it.. if u burn one factory u killing 100,000 we r not joking here we r talking about million of live… i know u want to hide behind innocent protester F U..

  6. Hahaha! hahaha! hahaha! the year long emergency is now lifted, what a news. Who the hell knows if it really is lifted. The house of the tigre thugs is always in state of emergency – the most scared regime Ethiopia has in its long history. T-TPLF is telling the world a fake news just to complete the paper work requirement for western financial aid. Now, it can’t raise tax, can’t sell bond, or can’t easily garb land for discount sales ,thus with no option, it has to tell the west TPLF is no more an army state. Is there any fool to believe that? Actually, what TPLF doing now is an urgent response action to the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee recent vote to advance a resolution as proposed by Rep. Chris Smith. The H. Res. 128 has become an imminent threat to each individual TPLF tigre thugs. Don’t let up these tigre thugs who massacred thousands of innocent Ethiopians and locked a population size of a big city in filthy prisons. They have to pay the price, no man’s life is trivial. TPLF is telling donor countries it is no more on emergency, but Ethiopians have not lifted the state of Emergency on TPLF. Period.

      • Brother Damo,

        The TPLF thug did not address any of the demands raised. Until it kisses goodbye, the fight for freedom must continue. What peace is TPLF and its agents talking about while innocent people are still taken to jail. Where is Dr. Merara Gudina? Is he released when the regime came out of emergency? TPLF regards people as its own cattle- when unhappy rushing them to its slaughter chamber and no body question or holds TPLF accountable for the blood. Only Ethiopians should assert their own rights , it should not be a gift from the tigre thugs.

        • Friend Abebaw,

          Amen again. No one will free us from hungry Woyane baboons except ourselves. It is only a matter of time. We shall see if Shabia will save them.

    • Left: Ferguson. Right: Iraq.

      police in America they dont joke about law and order .. they know the value of law and order it is more then human life if u have no law and order u have nothing … the American police mean business when they pointing the gun at u… u cant F round u cant run away from them u will be dead dog.. i love American police …THEY HAVE power next to God to kill, all u have to do is give them excuse they f u up… they dont even try to stop u they just go for kill .. they aim for ur heart or head not ur leg that is movie in real life they go for kill … if u dont believe me just try them

      • Adigrat Shiftaw Hagos,

        I am really started to ‘ worry ‘ about your mental health. You are spending too much time worshipping TPLF. Slow down. If change comes, so be it. You won’t be prosecuted. You confess how many people you killed and and will deported to Dedebit. You are obsessed too much. Enjoy your loot and what ever happens happens. Is Beles in short supply? May be we can help by sending fertilizer so that you can produce enough to eat and stop worrying too much. I understand your fear. If change comes, you won’t be stealing and may be sent back to your barrel land. But, we will allow experienced beggars like you to remain in Addis and make a living. I am just offering my brotherly advice.

      • Ash,

        Americans can hold their government accountable, because they have a constitutional contract. If the U.S. police force did what the Agazi rebel did to innocent Ethiopians killing in thousands, there would be real crisis. The reasons American keep the gun right is to a probable rainy day in case the government deteriorated into tyranny. Ethiopians neither have any constitutional contract with your tigre minority bandit nor gun ownership right. I am wondering why you are quick to compare the TPLF banana republic with America – you are like the devil citing Scripture for his purpose of temptation.

        • American constitution will be suspended when people become out of control and riot.. try it there is no constitution when law and order break down the military take over they r not police they are military… they F u up if u even think resisting that is why they pointing their gun and tell u dont even f around stop u stop .. end of story otherwise u blood will be dog blood …. u r talking about in peace time, i am talking about riot time when people become out of control as that time when they tell u dont come out from home u dont come out from if u dont they even shoot to air they shoot to kill they r the real deal

  7. @ash

    There’s a say the land stays but people die, for example when Meles died he left behind all his wealth he inherited through dictatorship, corruption, killings, raping etc, when they buried Meles he wasn’t even wearing his gold rolex watch because he doesn’t need it the man is DEAD.

    The moral of the tale is that leaders become lost to society that they forgot their own death.

    The bible and Quran are almost the same, so here’s a quote from bible

    Ezekiel 33:31
    Verse Concepts
    “They come to you as people come, and sit before you as My people and hear your words, but they do not do them, for they do the lustful desires expressed by their mouth, and their heart goes after their gain.

    So woyana came as liberators but they ended up oppressing the same people they came to liberate because of greed and power.

    Remember the purpose of leadership is to serve his people in faithful and fairly.

    • Ancient Somalia,

      You made a good point. I like the quote as well. Except Woyane thugs, no one considered the late TPLF head as leader. In fact, there has never been a leader in Ethiopian history. Of course, there self proclaimed so called leaders who left the country in bad shape. Do you consider Mengestu a leader? No way. He was thug who left the country open to Woyane savages. I am still waiting to see a leader.

      • @Damo

        No I dnt consider Mengestu neither Meles, Menlik, haileseassie or any others leaders because none of them were elected by the people.

      • Adawa Shiftaw Hagos,

        What are using the Nile dam for ? To wash your body? Are aka planing to steal the nile river ? Last time a mountain now a river? Thieves!

      • That dead rotten evil MelAss left Ethiopia landlocked! He also left with the blood of countless number of innocent Ethiopians on his hands!!
        May the rest of T-TPLF receive the fate of MelAss and Aba Diablos!!

        • @Hope
          You need to respect the dead, Meles is now in God hands so let God judge him.

          Ps the people who left Ethiopia landlocked is your king Warlord HaileSelassie and not Meles.

          • @Hope

            The crimes of minlik cannot and will not be forgotten.

            The crimes of haileselassie cannot and will not be forgotten.

            The crimes of Mengestu cannot and will not be forgotten.
            These three Warlords killed nearly 8 million innocent people alone.

            Minlik killed an entire muslims community and forced millions of muslims to convert to Christianity, invaded Somali, Afar and Oromia and other Southern through killing and raping the inhabitants.

            Haileselassie crimes was against the Oromo, Tigrai and the Eritrean people.

            Mengestu crimes was against the Tigrai, Eritrean, Oromo and the Somali people.

          • Here is the real you!!! hehehe!! I irritated you and made your authentic self appeared!! I always knew it — now, others can see that you are one badly BRAINWASHED RACIST WOYANE–ISIS!! LOL!!! Smacked!!

          • BRAINWASHED HATEFUL RACIST WOYANE!! IRRITATED AGAIN!! YOUR HATRED TOWARDS AMHARAS IS BEYOND THE SCALE!! TYPICAL DESENSITIZED WOYANE!!

          • If you have respect for those that have passed, then why are you still blaming the past leaders that died 40, 100 years ago???
            Brainwashed racist Woyane!!

          • @Hope

            Meles himself was victim of your racism towards none Amharas, Meles was a young who dropped out from school and went to the bush to pick up arms and fight your extremists racist nonsense.

            Even Mohamed Side Barr was an Ethiopian but he came back to destroyed Ethiopian because of the racism of the Amhara elites.

      • His [the arch devil, Melass] grand scheme was to take Ethiopia to grave with him. Thanks to God, Ethiopia is still breathing. Soon its children will be her savior to reclaim her dignity and sovereignty.

  8. State emergency or not, one fact is very clear. In the end, the bitter end, the Ethiopian people will be set free from this malicious, divisive, suffocating occupation by a tiny tiny extreme of the minority.

    My fellow Ethiopians,,the forgotten majority, and you know who you are. NEVER EVER fall into the trap of this divisive policies of the occupiers. Twenty six years of murder, twenty six years of abuse, twenty six years of thievery, twenty six years of humiliation, ye beyi temelekach on the land of your forefathers, unite unite unite unite it’s the call of the day, it’s the single important factors that will wipe these hateful regional secessionist beasts out of our land our country.

    As the old saying goes, DER BIYABER ANBESA YASER, and trust me Woyanae is no anbesa rather a chegaram poodle, once you shave the hair it’s just a skinny ugly dog.

    • Obbo Shewarega:

      By the way, did you have the chance to see our two gallant daughters Almaz and Dibaba leaving everyone in the dust in the 10,000 meters final at the London World Chamionship today. Did you notice how both were so graceful in their strides? And how Almaz and Tirunesh were lapping one runner after another? Especially the fight to the finish between Tirunesh and one Kenyan runner almost sent me into the trance, man!!! How Tirunesh turned on her twin turbo chargers telling the other runner like ‘see ya’!!! That is the spirit of the late Miruts Yifter the Shifter, Haile and Kenenisa rolled into one, man!!! I was wondering what Paula Radcliff is saying now? It looks like Tirunesh was telling the Kenyan runner like ‘Hey, this is my house and at my house I am the boss’. I have been like a kid in a candy store since then. I just want to share this with you and many others who will read this in good spirit.

    • If nothing else, what has happened and what is happening to our Gambelans brothers and sisters alone should motivate every ethnic group to UNITE and CRASH the inhumane mass looters and mass murderers of of innocent lawabiding Ethiopians!!

  9. Funny TPLF needed 10 months to rule a country in which it won 100% of the vote less 2 years ago. TPLF shouldn’t fool itself, the country is under state of emergency since they took power, even before that. It is just insult to their idiot supporters’ intelligence.

    • One can be well educated with a BA, MA and a PHD, but it doesn’t tchange the individual’s hateful heart and mind to be thoughtful, selfless, to have empathy and be the voice for the voiceless oppressed and muzzled humanbeings that get falsely accused, robbed blind, illegally evicted and thrown like used napkins, incarserated, beaten, tortured, burned alive, permanently sterilized, and massacred!!

        • Wishy washy! Confused, brainwashed unstable racist!! I irritate the hell out of you!! You cant fool or intimidate me!! Slapped again with dirty fly swatter!

          • @Newera
            If you were go to a war dnt take Hope with you because hope will abandon YOU and leave you behind in the battlefield.

          • Deep in my heart, I believe that T-TPLF are the most evildemented guiltless, remorsless, inhumane creatures that were born without empathy and zero compensation in the land of Ethiopia. There is no comparison to T-TPLF deep-rooted hatred and inhumanities — reread what they did to their own ethnic group:
            http://www.ethiopianreview.com/index/9261
            At the same, I believe the badly brainwashed ONLF and OLF that the very T-TPLF “HATE DIVIDE AND RULE PRPAGANDA” might turn out to be as bad as T-TPLF!! Trust me, when I was younger, with my loving father, I have attended OLF special meeting years ago in Maryland!! Frightening!!
            Ethiopians for Ethiopians regardless of ethnicity!!!
            Your kinds only bring more Somalia style violence–God for bid!!

  10. After watching the men’s 10,000 on Friday night, I was so depressed by the result that I couldn’t sleep the whole night. The sixth position was all we could secure?

    The Ethiopian team reminded me the 58 Woyane ‘generals’ out of sixty. The shameless Woyane thugs selected Tigrians(men) only to compete in London. I couldn’t help but remember the Woyane thug who went to Rio to swim and was dubbed by sport journalists as Robel the Whale.

    Where are those indomitable Oromos, Sidamos, and the southerners who have been dominating the distance? Why would one select those who are good at being snipers and leave those who can beat Moa Fara? How come the country failed to replace Kenesia who started to decline since 2011 because of foot problems? Moa even trains in Sululate with our athletes and beats them when it matters. I am embarrassed.

    I heard a few days ago that an athlete who was super qualified to represent the country was left out by his coach in favor of the Hadgos , he whipped his coach and run into the forest. Most likely the athlete is either from Oromo or Southern ethnic groups. Do we even no how many athletes go crazy because of TPLF’s nepotism and favoritism of a single ethnic group? Many athletes leave the country to compete for country’s like Turkey and taken advantage of and return to their country with nothing. Like many other problems, the solution is to this problem is eradicate Woyane thugs from the face of the earth!!

    Thanks God I was redeemed by Almaz and Turiye who dominated the Kenyas to to bring gold and silver home.

    • @Damo
      The race was still won by an eastern African, Moh farah may call himself British but he’s still from Somalia, the only reason moh Farah represents Britain rather then Somalia is mainly to do with and the promotion, moh Farah doesn’t even live in the UK he lives in American, he’s dad and other relatives all live in somalia and Djibouti, burn i do understand where your coming from the Southern Ethiopians have been dominating the long distance race but it seems since woyana came to power they’re lost their touch, and tigrai guy aka Robel the Whale was so fat he probably eat all food meant for the poor drought people.

      • Ancient Somalia,

        Yes, Moa is one of us. He lives in Colorado. Woyane Tigre first agenda is everywhere. The thugs have infested the airlines, the military, the security, the business, the foreign affairs, the athletics and even the department of begging. We have a lot of work to do to make things right!

    • Damo,

      I disagree with you on this. Miruts Yifter was from Tigray, he was the first to win 5k & 10 at one Olympic ever. One of the Ethiopians Abadi, had the world lead time in 10k this year before the race. Let us not make this about tribe.

      • Newera,

        Yifter was a hero to all of us. I can’t tell how I love that person. I am talking about the current state of affairs in our country. Have seen or read the names of those who run in the aforementioned distance in London? What you are trying to say is that the selection process is fair and some of those runners are entitled to represent the country. Have you seen anything fair under the thugs?

        I know you are not saying TPLF is democratic but on this one I respectfully disagree with you. I know what is going in athletics including bribing the coaches to get selected even if there are better runners with better time under their names. Remember what happened to Kenesia last year? They didn’t select him for Rio and after a few months, he almost broke the Berlin marathon missing the world record by five seconds!

  11. Hello, Snakes!

    Whether the regime lifts or imposes the state-of-emergency, it is just doing what it needs to survive. What is in it for Ethiopians? What were they permitted before?

    What Ethiopians need is democracy, democratically elected leaders and democratic institutions which guarantee their rights & freedoms 24/7 [rain-or-shine].

    In any case, the last thing Ethiopians need is another Egypt-funded-and-Eritrea-based [Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppets] Invading-and-Occupying Ethiopia like 1991.

    Most people who deafen us here with the lack of democracy, violation of human rights, ethnic-favoritism, terrible governance, etc. are the same people who were instrumental in helping the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF set foot in Ethiopia & spread its wings:

    Weren’t Ginbot-7 & Co.’s leaders preaching [1991-2005]: “The TPLF-EPLF brought democracy, ethnic/religious equality, peace, justice, prosperity, etc. to Ethiopia.”

    Was all that Praise Song only as long as Ginbot-7’s leaders were welcome by the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF Chimps & EPLF/Eritrea was the major beneficiary from the loot?

    FACT: There STILL IS lack of democracy, violation of human rights, ethnic-favoritism, terrible governance, etc. AND Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppets are NEVER the solution!

    Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu)]

    • Ayalew_mogu sew asafagnu,

      Here we go again the depressed Woyane thug denigrating those who are fighting TPLF Shiftas. For Ayalew the thug, democracy will rain from the sky . All we have to do is sit and wait. The lunatic Woyane agent is only interested in undermining the struggle so that his Woyane thugs will continue to plumber our people.

      Ayalew Woyanew,

      G7,OLF, TPDM,ONLF, ODF and others will unite and and eliminate the TPLF thugs . Your TPLF thugs will be sent to Dedebit to roost. There is nothing you can do about it . Tell us what is your solution? Get help for your depression. You don’t what you are talking about.

      • Ginbot-7’s Snakes/Chimps [Damo & Co.]:

        Typical DUMB Ginbot-7’s Hallmarks: Insults, Harassments, Diversions, Lies, Dishonesty, Cover-Ups, Misinformation Campaigns, Smear Campaigns, Character Assassinations, Intimidation, Back-door Boot-licking, etc.

        An accomplice to any crime is equally a criminal. Hence, Ginbot-7 & Co. [OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc.] are as criminals as the regime. This massacre is just the tip of the iceberg in their complicity with the regime’s ethnic-cleansing:

        Ethiopians can’t afford any more mass incarceration, genocide, massacre, summary executions, etc. The Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppets [Ginbot-7, OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc.] are just power hungry megalomaniacs who won’t hesitate to orchestrate another genocide.

        Ethiopian Lives Matter! Ethiopia is the Ethiopian People! No Ethnic-Cleansing!

        • @ayalew-mognu

          I’m part of the ONLF, And I can assure you we have no ties whatsoever with Shabia or their Egyptians master, we get our arms by attacking woyana and their cronies.

          • Ancient Somali:

            You have told us that you are not from Ethiopian parents and not even born in Ethiopia. What are you doing with the ONLF? Doing ‘volunteer work’? So, what exactly is the ONLF doing in Eritrea? Chewing chat?

          • @ayalew-mognu
            Let me repeat my dad is from the Ogaden, my mum she’s from Djibouti and I was born in Mogadishu, so you see i enjoy the hospitality of three countries that’s why my name is ancient Somali.

            Ps my connection to the ONLF is through my dad, my dad came to Mogadishu in 1970 as then part of the western Somali liberation front (now renamed itself as the ONLF).

            So for your information I am a high ranking ONLF officials, I even witnessed the signing of ONLF and G7.

            Like I said before ONLF has no office in Asmara neither it has any connection with Shabia or their Egyptians master.

        • NewError:

          What part of Character Assassination is funny? If you ‘torture & murder me’ on public media in the West, what will your Ginbot-7 & Co.’s Freedom of Speech, Governance, Democracy, Human Rights, etc. like for Ethiopians back home [if you ever usurp power]?

          How does a collection of Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based [Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppet Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Fronts] stands for Ethiopia or unite Ethiopians?

          Isn’t Eritrea’s EPLF the same Fascist who assembled Ethiopian POW’s on a runway & massacred them? Didn’t it also massacre Ethiopian marines, douse them with gasoline & set them on fire?

          • Read what Shewarega wrote above. I agree with you on opposing TPLF. That is what really matter to me. About oppositions like G7 and others, I agree to disagree with you. Please try to do the same.

          • NewError: All I ask of EVERYBODY is: BE HONEST WITH ETHIOPIANS – Tell Ethiopians THE TRUTH! Here is part of my response to Abebaw yesterday:

            “… Ginbot-7’s leaders helped the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF set foot and spread its wings in Ethiopia for 14 years [1991-2005]. Most of the complaints posted here happened in those years: the Amhara & Christian Oromo massacre, loss of Assab port, Ethnic Zonal System, EPLF’s War Crimes on Ethiopia’s POWs, etc.

            If Ginbot-7’s leaders cared about Ethiopia, would they look the other way when all that was happening under their own noses? Weren’t they enjoying the benefits of the regime and running their own businesses as business-as-usual? Why would I ever trust them for to a penny let alone give them Ethiopia?…”

            That’s why I say: Both Ginbot-7 & TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF don’t stand for Ethiopia! Instead of challenging me with facts to the contrary, Ginbot-7’s supporters resort to their Hallmark: Lies, Cover-Ups, Deception, Dishonesty, Misinformation Campaigns, Insults, Smear Campaigns, Character Assassinations, Diversion, Intimidation, Harassment, etc.

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu/Sew Amagnu)]

          • Minor correction: End of third paragraph should read as:

            “Why would I ever trust them to a penny let alone give them Ethiopia?”

            Sorry!

          • I was a supporter during the early days of TPLF. I was in the country and I saw some sign of democracy in the country without denial. Did I agree with TPLF on all issues? Heck no. The way we lost the ports was one of them. Even though TPLF could do little at that time to keep the ports (remember the only other option was to extend the the then 30 years war), they should have at least in principle fought to Ethiopians’ right to access to a sea. But I considered their move at that time as pragmatic one which my hope was a free strong post war Ethiopia can claim the ports through diplomacy or force. I thought democracy will be the rule of the land and Ethiopians can even go with Eritrea if they choose to. In my opinion TPLF became a complete dictator after 2005. Now, why would I blame G7 and other oppositions for doing what I did when TPLF took power. We gave TPLF the benefit of the doubt. These people who we know as members and leaders of G7 and other oppositions did not play safe and stay silent, they have to take stands publicly. Stands which people after decades blame them for. You and I had that luxury to stay anonymous and blame others after we saw the result of their decision.

            My point is people gave TPLF and peaceful struggle a chance. They should not be blamed for that. I also understand the difficult choices people make like deciding to work with EPLF. I would choose my battles wisely, the current priority should be removing TPLF. From professor Asrat woldeys, to Merara Gudina, to Professor Mesfin to Dr Brihanu, they tried to work with TPLF. I choose to listen to those guys who left their luxuries lives and scarified a lot. Even if I don’t agree with them, bad mouthing them is not faile in my opinion

          • NewError: Here is part of what I wrote to Shewarega: “… To me, the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF is an Invading-and-Occupying force AND it needs to be replaced! The question is: Who are the alternatives posing as Ethiopia’s Latter Day Saints?…”

            Dr. Birhanu knew better! He was with the EPRP and knows the TPLF-EPLF. I met people from EPRP, Meison, monarchs, ex-Derg members, hard-core criminals, etc. while in Derg’s various prisons at a very young age [indefinite detention].

            In one prison, I met a Tigrayan [age ≤20] EPRP platoon commander in Tigray. He said ≈: “… TPLF warned us to vacate Tigray. Then, when we were almost out of Tigray, we came under heavy gun fire. The TPLF & EPLF boxed us in. We chose to fight them, escape, surrender to Derg and be killed by Derg – than surrender to the TPLF-EPLF…”

            Further, I came to the West before the Derg’s demise and in my city the TPLF & EPLF replaced the Derg: They were pitting Ethiopians-against-Ethiopians by turning Oromos, Falashas, Gurages, Muslims, etc. against Amharas [anybody who didn’t answer “Which ethnic are you from?” was/is labeled “Neftegna Amhara & Enemy of the People”]!

            Look, I am just sharing what I know & what I witnessed. I form my opinions based on relevant facts at hand. I am NOT here to ‘get you’ or anyone else! I love HONESTY!

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu / Sew Amagnu)]

          • Let me extend an olive branch here. Do you believe in choosing the better of many evils? I am not saying Dr Birhanu is evil, I agree he is not perfect as we all know there is no perfection in politics. Well, I don’t have the first hand experience like you but from what I witnessed from information which is available publicly, Dr Birhanu first left his well earning job to become a lecturer and involve on different economic activities (like establishing Ethiopian economists association or something like that) in the country as he is an economist. Never joined any TPLF affiliated political party. Second, he formed the coalition that defatted TPLF in the 2005 election. For both his involvement as a lecturer and a political party leader he paid a price. Out of the choices I am given, out of all the evils that are currently involved in Ethiopian politics, I chose him. If your bad taste towards him is because of his past membership of EPRP, we are judging the guy for what he did more than 30 years ago. If your bad taste is for what he is doing now, tell me a better evil than him. My friend I know you know better than me it is very hard to find people that think exactly like you. I am holding dearly the hope that him and his party are better evils than TPLF. If post TPLF, his part becomes the new TPLF, as TPLF became the new Derg, what choice do we have other than opposing him and his party? What I am saying is more true for people like myself, because admittedly the most I can sacrify to the country is writing comments here

          • NewError: I am NOT at war with anybody AND I am not here to get you or Dr. Birhanu. As to Dr. Birhanu, I don’t know him personally. I have no personal grudges against anybody! If the information I transmit helps anyone make better decisions, it makes my day.

            I just want everybody to ask the relevant questions before endorsing ANY political party AND first-and-foremost ask: “What is in it for Ethiopia?” NOT “What is in it for me?” Why don’t we be honest with each other for a change? Honesty brings Unity!

            When I was very young, I made the mistake of following the crowd without asking questions AND it nearly cost me my life and it put my family through HELL and EXCRUCIATING PAIN for a very long time. I don’t want anybody & his/her family to EVER go through that AGONIZING PAIN!

            As to the EPRP, I have accidentally met SOME prominent ones while at Menelik’s Palace for routine interrogations: Dr. Birhanu’s cousin [or so (Fikre) – very briefly – caught crossing in to Afar (Djibouti?)] AND a Birhane-Mesqel [with his group]. I have also met a Commissar in another prison. But, I only saw two of the EPRP’s shady leaders about two years ago on ESAT’s interview with a Sisay Agena.

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu / Sew Amagnu)]

          • Which part of my comments made you think I am not honest? I understand you are not here to get anyone, we are just debating what is good for the country. Anywhere in this world, people even in the freest of nations choose the better of many evils. With all do respect you are the one who is not honest. If you don’t think any of the oppositions are better evils than TPLF, you are choosing TPLF but you are not saying it honestly. If you think at least one opposition is a better evil than TPLF and the other oppositions, you are not saying that honestly either. It simple, given the situation the country is in and given the political players we have currently, should we keep what is going on until a party that have the position exactly what we agree with comes to the picture, or should we support a party we think is the better of all evils? Simple. The first means we chose TPLF as the better of all evils.

          • Short Answer: If I support the TPLF, I WILL say it! Ginbot-7’s turning a blind eye, turning a deaf ear and playing deaf-blind doesn’t help Ethiopians. Look, I have no control over your train of thoughts, mechanism of reasoning and the conclusions you reach. Wrong assumptions always lead to flawed reasoning & wrong conclusions:

            1. It is the supporters of ‘ጉንበት-7’ who reduce the playing field to “TPLF vs. Ginbot-7”. To me, it will be insulting the intelligence of Ethiopians to tell them ”I will form a party for you abroad, train guerrillas in Eritrea with Egypt’s & Eritrea’s help and liberate you.” For starters, there are over 20 home-bred, home-grown and home-based ‘parties’. I only narrow down things to ‘a lesser of two evils’ when there are only two options.

            2. How can I be any clearer than this? Excerpt from my replies to Abebaw: “To me, the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF is an invader-and-occupier AND Ginbot-7’s leaders helped the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF set foot in Ethiopia & spread its wings. So, BOTH are criminals! Dr. Birhanu was one of Meles Zenawi’s closest associates. If Meles is a demon, what do you call a demon’s closest associate? Why would I ever support Ginbot-7 or TPLF?”

            3. Why would I ever trust EPLF/Eritrea for anything? Among its mischief, isn’t EPLF the same Fascist who assembled Ethiopian POW’s on a runway & massacred them? Didn’t it also massacre Ethiopian marines, douse them with gasoline & set them on fire?

            4. At the height of the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF’s fascism, Shewa was under sustained assault AND more under-siege than any part of Ethiopia. Did Shewa need any external help to liberate all the unlawfully detained Ethiopians from the highly fortified regime’s prison?

            5. [By ‘we’, I meant ‘Ethiopians’] The sentence should read: “Why don’t we [Ethiopians] be honest with each other for a change? Honesty brings Unity!” In short, I believe that Ethiopians CAN SOLVE their own problems on their own.

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu / Sew Amagnu)]

  12. Only the guiltless members and the shameless staunch supporters of the organized T-TPLF mafia, mass looters and the mass murderers of innocent Ethiopians — belittles, insults and addreses millions of innocent Ethiopian victims and 98 millions Ethiopians that are against T-TPLF, as “SNAKES”.

Your twisted mind doesn’t come with any solution. What you are trying to do is tacitly endorse your criminal Woyane thugs to keep on killing and looting for ever.

          Character Assassination is one of Ginbot-7 Thugs’ specialty, not mine. I provide BLAZING PROOF. Thank Nazret for stifling some of them and withholding vital info from the Ethiopia public!

          How exactly does a collection of your Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based [Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppet Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Fronts] stands for Ethiopia or unite Ethiopians? Should we brace for another round of ethnic-cleansing?

Don’t hide behind Ayalew and tell us your Adigrat name.

          • Damo: There are over 20 home-grown & home-based ‘parties’. Why would Ethiopians need former TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF’s servant Pseudo-Messiahs moved to Eritrea?

            I am still waiting to hear from you the alternative to fighting Woyane thugs from Eritrea. How did your Woyane thugs started their destructive mission? Was it not Shabia that fed, sheltered, and brought them all the way to our territories? What is wrong if others do the same thing? Other than belittling those who are working hard, you ain’t got nothing new. I understand one of your job description is to try to destruct those who are fighting TPLF mass murderers. You are exposed. I suggest you go back to India and resume charming the snakes you left behind.

          • Damo: There are over 20 home-grown & home-based ‘parties’. Why would Ethiopians need former TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF’s servant Pseudo-Messiahs who moved to Eritrea?

            However worse your Smear Campaign gets, I can’t/don’t speak for the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF but I hope Ethiopians will avert another round of ethnic-cleansing by shunning any Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppets.

            I don’t know how your Ginbot-7’s Hallmarks help Ethiopia: Lies, Insults, Smear Campaigns, Misinformation Campaigns, Character Assassinations, Dishonesty, Cover-Ups, Diversion, Harassment, Intimidation, Back-door Boot-licking, etc.

          • Ayalew-mugnu aka copy & past,

            You are doing the same thing over again and again. I am done with you. Keep on charming your snakes. I you make good money.

  13. My fellow Ethiopians, correct me if I’m wrong, but what just happened at this thread at this site clearly shows why 100 million Ethiopians are being murdered, spat on, and ruled by a hundred thousand Woyanae thugs. There were 73 comments, but only one Woyanae thug. The rest, I don’t care which part of the country they come, what kind of political views they air they are all Ethiopians.

    Are we blind that we can not see that? 73 comments, the only Woyanae thug comment 18 times, an astonishing 25% of the comments. The rest instead of uniting against their common enemy and delivering to him what he deserve we call each other names and even gone down to personal hatred against each other as if that will do squat to the millions suffering under the vicious occupation.

    I know there are some in here who are against the regime yet concentrate more on other issues or groups. One such person is Ittu Aba Farda, as the most senior in here he views things in a different perspective. If he hear something good happens he accepts it without question,,but because of his eagerness to see good things happen for Ethiopians. He also sometimes dwells on outside enemies like Egypt etc, sidelining the real enemy Woyanae. But why can’t we just leave it there, it’s his view, it irritates me too, but we should respect and skip over it. Same thing with Ayalew, what he says about G7 leaders etc has truth in it, but he dwells on it too much. But again can’t we just accept that is his thinking, and leave it there? He has his reasons. But we are spending so much energy and time attacking each other the murder and looting continues. And the lone Woyanae thug comes in here spitting his venom at will.

    I am no rocket scientist, but for me everything is clear. My good friend Gezaee, God rest his soul at Tigreonline, once accused me I have only one track of mind, WOYANAE. HEY, AND I’M SO PROUD OF THAT. I know who is the enemy and the occupier of my people. Stay focused my fellow Ethiopians, don’t get distracted. And that includes you too Ancient Somali, I still hope you are from Ogaden. I hate to believe otherwise.

    Let me end with what that brave brave brave kid said after grabbing the mic at the Irrechaa festival……..

    DOWN DOWN WOYANAE, DOWN DOWN WOYANAE, DOWN DOWN WOYANAE
    DOWN DOWN TPLF.

    • Shewarega,

      What a clever observation! Only numerically and spiritually tiny tiny number of TPLF trolls are making confounding noise here. These trolls are living on TPLF/woyane welfare so they have to do what they have to do – it is their livelihood. We have to ignore them, at the same time, in my opinion we don’t have to pay attention to those few personalities posting and talking the same thing again and again – we already used to that and we don’t need an educator. You are absolutely correct on that ;i.e. keep our eyes on the big picture I mean the big elephant in the room/the vampire TPLF. I have the propensity for appreciation to pragmatic discussions in stead of hearing /reading explanations over and over on the same problems I knew fairly enough. I wish on every new issue posted on Nazrte.com we brainstorm ideas and propose strategic solutions. Ethiopians have to play a different game that woyane has not accustomed to.
      By the way, if one translates your observation ( 25% TPLF trolls vs 75 % anti-TPLF comments) into the general Ethiopian population, I will assure you TPLF’s favor ability rate will sink into a low of less than 1%.

      • Enkwan ande percent, ye ande percent ande percent ayehonum. The only reason they are still in power because the majority refuses to unite. Even a blind can see that. The question I was raising, if we can not focus and unite in here, how in the world can we free our people back home? How can we forget those brave men languishing in jail, Dr Marara, Eskinder Nega, Bekele Gerba, Andualem and tens of thousands who are walking the walk and paying the price? We are in our warm homes,,with our families, mostly living a comfortable life. The LEAST we can do for them, UNITE, and speak in one voice. For everything we say others can reply in kind. One say x, y, z killed 8 million, if we want to throw a thing like that why not make it a cool 10 million and round it up. But others can talk same way about what Gragn did too, but sorry he is a hero for him. We have to stop this utter stupidity and unite. I see many in here who were like that but greatly matured and corrected themselves, away from the blah blah, concentrated on the one and only enemy we have , Woyanae. My hats off to them, but many more still marching on the wrong path.

        • Since people of opposing interests express their opinion on the same forum there is no way to stop serious disagreements. On the other hand, propaganda victory on air or absence thereof is not what matters; nor is it necessarily a reflection of reality. At least 95% of Ethiopians genuinely believe their one and only enemy is the wayane. Therefore, they must unite all their forces, money and expertise on the ground and combat the TPLF terrorists without listening to divisive and inflammatory comments by regime supporters. There is no power greater than people’s power. This is what liberates the people. The next showdown will not be in Ambo or Gondar but should concentrate on Finfinne to smoke out the terrorists and their supporters from the city in front of the world media, once and for all. This how we are going to prove the unity of the people against wayanes. Once the terrorists are gone, a new sun will rise over Ethiopia and people of all races, regions and religions will embrace each other and celebrate their victory without leaving any trace of past divisions behind. This will happen within a month this year if those who see wayanes as their only enemy use their keys wisely.

          • Amen my brother, as for the past, especially what was done to the Oromo I bow my head and apologize in the name of the ancestors. Thou of mixed heritage, as most Shewans, more than anything ethnically I’m Oromo too. I also have told in here many stories, calling Oromo just as victim is wrong, because there were many who stood up and fought bravely for their rights. One such man was Akkaa Butaa, chief of Abichu who fought all the way to Aliyu Amba, a town on the outskirts of Ankober. He was killed by a relatively unknown captain, Gobena, who was a soldier under Bezabeh, who was appointed to govern Shewa during Tewodros’s reign. Gobena became Gobena because he stopped Akkaa Butaa. Another Oromo, is Assenu Odai, my direct ancestor, chief of Deraa, the Amara them self sang for him. Assenu Odai Ye Jegnaw gora, gedel seddedew yan hulu Amara. I have the documents written then. But no matter what happened between them, they married we are their children. The past is important, I also believe the new generation should learn all the truth, as it was that as Damo said the same mistakes will not be repeated. But we should also be clever and not use words like “settlers”. The only one who will benefit with every single mistake we make, Woyanae and Woyanae alone.

      • Abebaw: If you are here for discussion as you want us to believe, man-up and disprove any of the points I post [minus the proof withheld/stifled by Nazret].

        How does a collection of Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based [Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppet Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Fronts] stands for Ethiopians?

        Weren’t Amharas & Christian Oromos massacred by the OLF-IFLO [Hararghe, Arusi and Illubabor] under TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF while Ginbot-7’s leaders were serving them?

        Was Ginbot-7’s leaders’ praise [“The TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF brought democracy, ethnic equality, justice, prosperity, etc.”] only as long as Ginbot-7’s leaders were part of the regime & EPLF/Eritrea was the major beneficiary of the loot?

        • Ato Ayalew,
          To be honest, I don’t have much knowledge about G7 so I can’t make any judgment about them. I know the presence of dozens of liberation fronts which makes it difficult to judge their inclusiveness, true ultimate goal and effectiveness – especially where in Ethiopian politics people changes sides and motifs much often. My take, however, is TPLF is talking more or almost all the time about G7. This sounds to me; G7 is the most formidable challenge for TPLF’s survival. I don’t know how. If you have reliable evidences and information about the mission, visions, weaknesses and strength that make us informed that is good , so did the crime you alleging this group. However, if you ask me the successes rate of struggle operating from Eritrea, I don’t trust Isayas. I hate him. More than him, I hate Meles and all the tigre liberation thugs. The tigre thugs are the one that are right now killing and harassing my people. That is just me. For those freedom fighters operating from Eritrea, it is their choice and up to them, whether to only keep their tail there but neck out of Eritrea or all of it there. My question to you, how would Ethiopians send the minority ethnic dynasty to hell? When we read the news that the U.S. sends millions of dollars into the TPLF ATM machine in the name of 8 million hungry population ( basically through counter intelligence agreements in the region) , it is thumbs down (it is depressing still we are a nation of hunger); when Ethiopian airlines buy 1 airplane, it is high-fifing and thumbs up; when, a population of a kebele sinks in a tsunami of trash mountain, again thumbs down. If we need a lasting solution, we must come tighter and take at least some common ground. We know TPLF is the same or worse than EPLF. There is no rationale to justify TPLF’s indefinite rule. It is the TPLF who is in charge doing everything in the name of Ethiopia. If your hands are tied in your back, you can’t help to untie the friend or person next to you. The TPLF has its boots on the neck of Ethiopians, that is the one hurting much right now and we should kick away that blood stinky boots of TPLF first.

          • Abebaw: Ginbot-7’s leaders helped the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF set foot and spread its wings in Ethiopia for 14 years [1991-2005]. Most of the complaints posted here happened in those years: the Amhara & Christian Oromo massacre, loss of Assab port, Ethnic Zonal System, EPLF’s War Crimes on Ethiopia’s POWs, etc.

            If Ginbot-7’s leaders cared about Ethiopia, would they look the other way when all that was happening under their own noses? Weren’t they enjoying the benefits of the regime and running their own businesses as business-as-usual? Why would I ever trust them for a penny let alone give them Ethiopia?

            PS: Most links I post are withheld/deleted by Nazret. For more, see my response to Shewarega below [I have to go!].

          • Ato Ayalew,

            I honestly can’t say that G7 leaders were the cause of the historical damages the tigre liberation fronts thug did to Ethiopia. TPLF was inherently created to cause destruction and chaos itself. Can’t hatch chicken from a snake eggs. TPLF is a super cobra snake. TPLF is the pioneering engineer of all humiliations to Ethiopia and its disintegration. It appears to me unfair to dwelling too much on opposition parties in general, yet doing very little or now on how to dislodge the mother of all troubles,the tigre liberation front. First, the whole point of the discussion is not about TPLF vs G7, it is rather about TPLF vs the change aspiring Ethiopian mass. I don’t know why one has to spend too much on G7. Thus, the choice as to me is very distinct either one chooses the current TPLF status quo and fight tooth and nail for its survival or stand along with the millions oppressed Ethiopians who are embittered by the tyrannical ethnic dynasty and contribute meaningful strategic ideas on how to bring a unity. Whether we like it or not We cannot afford to stand at a crossroad, even if we don’t try , Ethiopia will move on removing the ethnic thugs independent of individual willingness.

          • Abebaw: The alternatives presented are: TPLF or Ginbot-7. To me, the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF is an invader-and-occupier AND Ginbot-7’s leaders helped the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF set foot in Ethiopia & spread its wings. So, BOTH are criminals!

            Dr. Birhanu was one of Meles Zenawi’s closest associates. If Meles is a demon, what do you call a demon’s closest associate? Why would I ever support Ginbot-7 or TPLF?

            If Ginbot-7’s leaders looked the other way when all those atrocities were committed under their noses [1991-2005], why would I trust them to a penny let alone to Ethiopia? Weren’t they enjoying the regime’s benefits just like any Woyane & running their businesses as business-as-usual?

            If there are over 20 home-bred, home-grown and home-based ‘parties’, why not strengthen them? Doesn’t Ginbot-7’s riding in to Addis led by EPLF bring back 1991 AGAIN?

            How does a collection of Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based [Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppet Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Fronts] stand for Ethiopia or unite Ethiopians? If Ginbot-7 ever usurps power with Egypt’s & Eritrea’s help, how is it going to serve all 3 [Ethiopia, Eritrea and Egypt]?

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu / Sew Amagnu)]

    • Shewarwega:

      I posted my opinion [with BLAZING Info] regarding your ‘Call for Unity’ but Nazret’s ‘moderator(s)’ stifled it! I don’t pay for posting on their website [whoever they are] but there is no level playing field ANYWHERE when it comes to Ethiopia!

      Question: How does a collection of Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based [Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppet Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Fronts] stands for Ethiopia or unite Ethiopians?

      Any Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based ‘opposition’ is just Egypt-&-Eritrea’s Puppet AND ’95%’ of the ≤ 15 participants are assigned by Ginbot-7 & don’t represent Ethiopians.

      • I understand your point my brother, and I am a nobody to try to get into details of it and prove or disprove it. All I’m saying is as a single humble Ethiopian, who has gone thru a lot in life, I know how fragile life is. I was in Derg’s jail at age 15, they put a gun in my mouth, for some reason they did not shoot. Many many others same age were taken from beside me never to be heard from again. Every time I see another Ethiopian kid being beat up by these murdering thugs, shot and left on the streets, their body pulled out sank in the Mediterranean, it all pains me much. As difficult as it is, we must concentrate on unity and those that are humiliating and murdering our families.

        • Shewarega: It won’t be any consolation but my family had no clue about my whereabouts for 6 years while Derg kept moving me around.

          Back to the topic: To me, the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF is an Invading-and-Occupying force AND it needs to be replaced! The question is: Who are the alternatives posing as Ethiopia’s Latter Day Saints?

          Look, I am the kind who prepares another suitable mattress first before I ever throw away the old one. That’s why I ask questions about the track-record of the alternatives and share info to avert another disaster!

          As though the over 20 home-grown & home-based ‘parties’ were not enough, we also have numerous Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based Secessionist ‘Ethnic Liberation Fronts’, Ginbot-7 and civic organizations.

          If they ever had Ethiopia’s interest at heart, would they be so many?

    I am embarking on this significant endeavour, to answer the phrase, some considered a major pillar once nation,Commanding heights of the economy

    #Ittu Aba Farda

    ITTU, ur cousin asking u why EFFORT doesnt pay tax,

    my answer is very simple EFFORT, IS Commanding heights of the economy refers to existing private industry critical to the economy like large banks, insurance firms, domestic airlines, energy and mines,

    not all business created equal, EFFORT R critical to economy and need protection… on the other hand ur cousin shop is critical but they r consumer goods trader that means they use foreign currency… on the other hand EFFORT saved us a lot of foreign currency even inflow foreign currency by exporting or by producing import substitute ….

    i know EFFORT even if they pay tax nobody believe them , even if they show their book no body will believe them so what is the point legally they r not obligated to open their book they r private company .. just because the people have suspicion EFFORT doesnt have to open their book,,, to me i dont mind if they open their book but why the people hate EFFORT so much, if i didnt say because it belong to TPLF then they hate also Ethiopian Airlines … that is why i dont understand if there is no EFFORT then EFFORT will be a Chinese owned business how that help us.. EFFORT is high efficiency machine with lean and mean management driving the local economy

    NOW let see EFFORT critical
    1. Bruh Tesfa Irrigation and Water Technology

    the leader in the field of modern irrigation and water supply technology development in East Africa.

    now let say ur cousin is a farmer and he want to start irrigation firming ..in the past he have only once choice to import modern irrigation system that cost him ten time then what Brush Tesfa now provided him… now if u tax Brush Tesfa in way u r taxing ur Cousin because mega industry doesn’t pay tax they they r at the top of the chain they pass the tax to the consumer which is ur cousin in way ur cousin one who paying EFFORT’S TAX NOT EFFORT..

    2ND Addis Pharmaceutical Factory
    Addis Pharmaceutical Factory manufactures more than 91 high quality products of different therapeutic categories including antibiotics, gastro-intestinal drugs, central nervous system drugs, cardiovascular drugs, anti-diabetic agents, antihistamines, antehelmitics, analgesics, antiprotozoals, respiratory drugs, dermatological preparations, minerals and vitamins as well as large volumes of Parentals.

    TO UR cousin if one of ur family sick they can get 91 type of quality medicine at reasonable price … again taxing EFFORT doesnt help because ur cousin is the one who is finally paying the tax ,,, the second point is Ethiopia used to spend 459 million dollar importing those medicine .. and look what Ethiopia gaining just look u dont have to work in EFFORT to get the benefit …

    i can go step by step each company benefit it is to long but u got the idea…

    now let me take u back to the World golden slandered capitalist …how they protect their Commanding heights of the economy..

    if u remember AT&T was the sole operator in America, there was only one energy company and also domestic fight all are enjoying monopoly right and protection …
    Solyndra was one sophisticated and cutting edge technology that Obama saw it as the second coming and selected Solyndra as poster boy a shining example of green technology and give it $535 Millon Dollars of your tax money! guess what Solyndra with in year bankrupted … the point is the American public were not mad for Obama giving the money they r mad because he did not select the company carefully .. if Solyndra succeeded no body had the problem giving money to Solyndra.. my point is even American Government incubate business they take most of research and development cost and pass the new technology to business in away it is unfair competition even the farmer doesnt pay tax

    i hope i answer all ur question about EFFORT … WALMART, APPLE AND GOOGLE and other mega industry r not the same like corner store they have ablity to move out of USA and avoid tax so IRA doesnt push to much … if u stop EFFORT because u think they looting then what they going to do is just like mengistu haile mariam and King Haile they can just loot without developing mama Ethiopia u cant stop the looting by stopping EFFORT u r harming million of Ethiopian

    this is part I … PART II COMING

    • ash,

      Before reacting to your response to my question about taxes paid by EFFORT I will wait until I read your Part II. Please note that I am not asking the question to further any political agenda I may have because I don’t have and don’t belong to any group that has one. I am sure you have been all my comments or at least several of them on diverse topics you would have noticed that I am fiercely independent. If I see it wrong there is no holding back now. If I see something being done for the benefit of the common man/woman in the old country, you would have found me jumping up and down like a happy kid. If my opinion is deemed wrong believe me I can take it. I am a big boy and I consider learning has no time or age limit. I am always willing and ready to learn from my elders and from those younger than I am. That is because it is time for all of us to keep our eyes on the prize. That prize is the day when our women are liberated; the day famine and poverty is the distant memory; the day that ridiculous population explosion is stopped in its tracks; the day those glorious has proven that their fabled nation has really awaken itself from centuries old slumber and is standing at par with peers of history like Taiwan, Germany, UK, Japan and many such nations. I strongly believe that our people are fast learners if they are taught properly in peace. Even during the chaotic occupation years by Mussolini’s soldiers many of them had turned out to be mechanics and other modern skills. I may be called die hard ethio-centric for hedging all my bets on the capabilities of the people of the old country but that is alright by me and I will take it as a badge of honor. For too long they were denied that opportunity. The late emperor had tried to do something about it but it was the nature of his system not to go full blast at it. Absolute monarchy could only go so far. I came to that understanding after I read the memoire penned by one of his long time adviser, John Spencer. I just finished reading it the 2nd time. He was swept away the wind of change he was not ready for it. But his fate must be taken at heart by anyone now or in the future who wants to lead those glorious people. In any cae, I will wait for your 2nd comment.

      Keep plugging away young man and don’t forget watching our athletes tomorrow and there after until the London competition is done. I hope Genzebe or another brave athlete will have a victory as a platinum jubilee anniversary gift for this septuagenarian. That would be great, another blessing!!!

      • Please read that as: I am sure you have been reading all my comments or at least several of them on diverse topics you would have noticed that I am fiercely independent.

    • ash,

      I may follow up with the following. If you have had the chance to read my previous comments going back for several years you would notice that I had mentioned that the transformation of the old country through an earth shaking industrialization is feasible and the only way for the much needed exit from agrarian economy. I was citing countries like South Korea, my darling Taiwan, Malaysia and Latin American countries especially Chile as examples. That is because I had seen it myself how those nations managed to pull their people out of abject poverty through mass industrialization. But that was not without anxiety. Anxiety, because there is always danger that may pop up out of rampant corruption that evolved along the path of the ‘miraculous’ growth. When those countries transformed their economies by leaps and bounds in a decade time they were borrowing money from right and left. Since their development plan was mainly state outlined that gave growth to powerful manufacturing conglomerates with factories and businesses accumulating in the hands of the very few who were usually politically connected. Every major project was carried on the whims of these powerful families. I used to buy small motors, diamond blades and various industrial products from South Korean companies. I had noticed they were all owned by one or two giant corporation. I was accustomed to see the same big honcho when visiting two or companies during the same trip. In any case loans were flowing into the country like a raging flood. Significant portions of the loans were going into personal huge projects usually in duplication. Company reps were swarming trade/industry shows and symposiums here in the USA and Europe. I used to host many of them during those trips. That nation was accumulating foreign debts beyond the pale. It was a matter of time before the bubble bursts into its face. Then you know what happened in 1997. It national debt was at the level it was not able to pay, to unbearable almost 100% of its GDP(PPP). Then it started defaulting in its payment obligations with interests amassing on it books. It had no choice but to seek help from IMF and others. IMF stepped in because the economic melt down was not limited to South Korea but was spreading like wild fire. When you accept a bail out by a foreign entity(banks), you will be told what to do and what not. There will be no for an answer from you. That means you lose your hard sought sovereignty. And recession was in full swing. South Koreans were now jobless in their millions. Those company reps I used to host here or I used to see when I was there had to take menial jobs. They became taxi drivers after shading away their sharp three piece suits. It took more than a decade for them to come out of it. That is my concern in the old country. That last time I checked the national debt had reached high in the 20 percent range of the nation’s GDP(PPP). Remember South Korea does not have the despicable ‘elephant’ of ethnic politics in the room like the old country. There should not be high employment in one ethnic region and high unemployment in others. Also it would not be fair or right to see industries accumulated in the hands one or two outfits created along ethnic lines. The process of tackling that must start now before it is too late. The other factor that helped South Korea to pull itself of the mess itself created was the fact that the crisis necessitated change of regimes and it was lucky to have strong opposition to pick up the mantle to lead the country through peaceful transition. That does not exist in the old country. The opposition has been clubbed into weak fragments. All what I am saying everyone is forewarned!!!

  15. Not only we have to question the motives and the sanity of the T-TPLF brutal regime, but also few that admire and support the mass looters and massmurderer T-TPLF, and those that jump up and down with delight for the so called development — forgetting that it came at the cost of millions of blood, tears and sweats of millions of Ethiopians, and that benefits the T-TPLF mafia that have become multimillionaires billionaires, and their birthplace — while millions of Ethiopians are dying from extreme poverty and starvation!!
    We have to question the few brainwashed individuals that are trying to take us back hundreds of years, taking the focus away from the T-TPLF, that are robbing, locking up, beating up, torturing, chasingout, and slaughtering innocent Ethiopians throughout Ethiopia, at the moment!! These brainwashed individuals point their fingers shamelessly at past leaders that have gone and died, fifty to hundreds years ago… and blaming Ethiopians that have never robbed, tortured or killed a single Ethiopian. My observation tells me that, the few Amhara haters that are still hanging on EPLF and TPLF hate propaganda, and the likes of Mognu are trying to take us backwards, everytime Ethiopians take a step
    forward towards UNITY!!

    • @Hope

      Woyana made it clear they won’t leave even @ash himself admitted to you to take up arms but like always you didn’t replied and made nonsense excuse like your on antibiotics hahaha hahahah hahahahah hahahaha lmafo.

      • Childish!! Everytime, I mention a fraction of the T-TPLF inexcusable horrendous mass lootings and mass torturers and massacres — it is obvious that I irritate the hell out of hearrless remorseless Woyanes like you!! The likes of Ash and wishy washy undercover Woyanes like you want to continue living like everything is hunky dory — enjoying life to the fullest with billions of dollars stolen money, intentionally and conveniently forgetting the countless number of innocent Ethiopians you have locked up, and the those you have beaten, tortured, burned alive and massacred!!! Woyanes like you want Ethiopians like me to forget the jaw-dropping crimes you have committed and celebrate your whatever economic growths and envestment that has come at the cost of Ethiopians blood, tears, sweats and precious lives!!
        Millions of Ethiopian families wake up everyday with never-ending heart aches and agonies from losing their children, parents, siblings, friends at the hands of desensitized bloodthirsty Woyanes!! Regardless you don’t like to hear it, in the honor of Ethiopian victims and their families, I promise to mention everyday about the mass lootings, mass starvation, mass arrests, mass tortures and massacres you have committed and continue to committ on oppressed, muzzled Ethiopians!

        • @Hope
          Why dnt you fight then? Just because you passed some African American ghetto you think your BIG badass but your none of them because everyone knows your nothing but a big clown.

          even @ash said to you to bring your clown ass and fight like a man but you said you were on antibiotic ahaha hahahaha hahahahahah.

          Dude when is this antibiotic is gonna finish? because your people are waiting for you to lead them to freedom, last thing you want is to disappoint them.

          • The same disease causing buzzing around again!!!
            Only typical heartless Woyane like you put value on what other heartless desensitized Woyanes like Ash have to say!!!
            You keep on pulling out Woyanes nonsense out of your behind, and keep on saying : ” …everyone knows your nothing but a big clown…” Your everyone is, your Amhara haters racist individuals, and the mass looters and mass murderer Woyanes!! But, I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU AND YOUR HEARTLESS HATE-FILLED FRIENDS THINK!! I’M MY OWN MAN THAT DOESN’T GET EASLY MANIPULATED!!!

            Once again, you have been smacked with dirty fly–swatter!!!

          • @Hope
            What is it that you really want? You want woyana out but at the same time you dnt wana lift one finger, I dnt see how thats possible, on the other hand I’m on already on ground doing all kind of battle while you sit in your comfort Western house.

            Listen man there’s no ifs or buts altogether you either fight or you go back to that circus.

          • Yup! That is the truth! This is not news for me –I have figured you out a long time ago, that you are one of the despicable bloodthirsty Woyane fighters that have been slaughtering Ethiopians since 1991, and possibly your father has been fighting since 1965-68. Other wise, you wouldn’t be pointing your bloodsocked finger at past leaders that have been dead 50, 100, 150 yrs ago, while Woyane thugs robbing, torturing, burning, raping and massacring your ethnic group and the rest of Ethiopians throughout Ethiopia as we speak!!
            You can lie and rant your propaganda and manipulate others, IT IS NOT ME!! GET LOST! I’M DONE TALKING TO A SHAMELESS RACIST WOYANE THUG!! YOU HAVE BEEN AFTER ME BECAUSE I’M FOR EVERY ETHIOPIANS RIGHTS!! AND FOR THOSE POOR AMHARAS THAT HAVE BEEN DEMONIZED AND BLMED BY T-TPLF THUGS FOR EVERYTHING UNDER THE SKY TO DIVIDE ETHIOPIANS AND STEAL THEIR LAND TO EXPAND TIGRAE PROVINCE AND CREATE “GREATER TIGRAE”.
            From here on talk to my middle finger!!!

          • @Hope

            You started this whole beef with me when you said the ONLF are a terrorists group, which is a pure disrespect to my people and I will not take that shit from especially from a clown.

            You are a Neftegna terrorist who has been exposed, I’m watching you CLOWN.

      • Under T-TPLF Hell on earth continues in Ethiopia!! Ethiopians continue to be mistreated, abused, tortured and massacred:
        news-bomb-attack-in-bahirdar

  16. Lifted or not the state of emergency has been in place since Tigre terrorists invaded our land more than 26 years ago and no living Ethiopian will rest even for one minute until they are annihilated and removed from our country. The so-called “lifting” is simply one of the early effects of the rising temperatures in the White House. Trump is not a very popular in the US but he is already on his way to becoming the man next to Jesus Christ in Ethiopia since is focusing squarely on TPLF terrorists. There is no Barack Obama more in WH who will nurture Tigre terrorists in Finfinne. If Irrecha 2017 takes place before the terrorists are forced out, then the slogan of the people will be exactly the same as that of Irrecha 2016: it will be DOWN DOWN WAYANE!!! which will reverberate around the world. As usual the TPLF terrorists will respond with air force and more bombs eavy weapons. The wave of the blood will finally take away Sebhat Nega, Samora Yanus, Abay Tsahaye and all of their puppets!! Mark my words!!
    The perceived existence of difference between Amhara and Oromo is simply non- existent and false unless one defines “Amhara” as a few extremists in DC and some illegal settlers in Finfinne, which in no way represent any people, let alone the peaceful people of Gondar and Gojam who have re-affirmed their solidarity with their oromo counterparts in the fight against Tigre terrorists.
    The people of Finfinne must make clear choice: harbor Tigre bandits and face their fate or rise up and expel them and live in peace with the rest of Ethiopians. The focus of the struggle no longer Ambo, Ginci or burning some looted properties. The campaign to clean Finfinne from terrorists will start nowhere but in Finfinne.

    PARTII,

    #Ittu Aba Farda

    Why our tax system is online and modernised

    answer:= there was a man called Melaku Fenta, he introduced cash machine and connected this cash machine to the Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority(ERCA) that means portion of the tax when customers pay for goods and service ERCA, get their cut with in a second..

    Melaku, did not stop here he want to established a Continental Free Trade Area as a major tool for boosting Intra-African Trade, and he was big in Interconnectivity of Computerized Customs Clearance guess what they arrested him why because corruption charge ….

    Melaku Fenta replaced by Beker Shale, on May 29, 2013 but r we better off now then before let the number speak for it self

    under Melaku Fenta

    in 2011…………49.1 billion Br
    in 2012………… 82 billion Br
    in 2013 ………..106 billion Br

    62,540 cash register machines nationally

    i could not get the number for 2013 up to 2017 any how some blog telling me the tax collection r down..and u know what happened with tax hike

    next:=

    anti corruption and almost every ministerial( not all )have absolute power that means corrupted absolutely here is how it work

    this is just example:- as u told us ur cousin business audited by taxman the taxman levy tax upward of 100,000 birr ….when this happened, u told us ur cousin will negotiated and the tax man will reduced to the satisfactions or ur cousin and taxman and tax would be paid …

    as u can see here is where corruption come in, the taxman could have levy easily one million birr and refused to reduce it … even threatening to shut down ur cousin shop what is ur cousin going to do he have only two choice shut down his shop or pay up..

    so what is the solution the solution is reducing the power of the minister it is easy to do… the taxman should not have power to shut down ur cousin shop but both ur cousin and taxman can go to natural body for hearing and judged by natural body to reach settlement

    in Ethiopia if u have restaurant the health minister will come and shut u down for {health reason} until u pay up… so this can be solved by allowing the tax payer the the right to have a hearing at natural court before paying taxman estimation

    the government also try to introduce an honour system where u yourself calculated the tax and pay based on ur own income that u think reasonable and fair … hoping to reduce taxman corruption

    here is what the tax man saying

    የግብር አወሳሰን /Tax assessment/ ግብር ከፋዩ ያመነበትን ሂሳብ (ዓመታዊም ሆነ ወርሃዊ ታክሶች) ወስኖ በንግድ እንቅስቃሴው ያመነበትን የማቅረብ /Self Assessment/ ሂደት ሲሆን የታክስ ባለስልጣኑ ግብር ከፋዩ ያሳወቀውን /Self Assessment/ መሰረት በማድረግ /Official assessement/ ኦዲት በመስራት የሚያሳውቅበት ሂደት ነው። የግብር አወሳሰን ዘዴዎች ሁለት ናቸው፡፡

    now how this Self Assessment fared, again let look the number

    Out of 13,558 business people, only 6,352 of them reported profit while 5,430 of them reported loss and 1,001 reported zero sale

    now tell me, why send taxman to audit those who reported profit while u could have send the taxman to those who reported zero or loss …. to fix this problem is easy to tell them u cant report loss 3 years in row, why r u in the business if u are not making money ..

    i dont think ,punishment is the answer we need to educate the people why we have to pay tax and to tell them it is good business to pay tax

    Government have only one income if they dont get tax income then they forced to print money if they print money then we r causing hyperinflation… if hyperinflation take over the business lose out therefore it is in the business people interest to pay tax… how small it is .. the government also must show what they do with tax money…

    introduce pay as go tax for example cleaning the area security hiring police officer and keeping the place safe …putting up security camera in business area and make sure no body even dare to pick pocketed let allow break in … when the business community see this kind of improvement they might be willing to pay up … government and the taxman must work hand in hand… the government must do real tangible service for people willing to pay

    for example:- u want to rent ur house and u rent to someone then after few month, the tenant refused to pay u rent and even refused to leave ur … then it took u five year to kick him out…. now tell me why would u pay tax if u dont get service ,,, but if u know the government will help u out. for example if the court order the tenant to evacuate the rental unit and send police to enforce the eviction notice who would not pay tax knowing they will be take care off ..

    talking about hyperinflation ,,, Ethiopia is already in high inflation price every thing is over priced the house cost in AA, is the same as in NY, food price everything is over priced ..we borrowing a lot of money and we keep on importing without encouraging import substitute…

    i am thinking Ethiopia is going toward to The 1998–2002 Argentine Great Depression and hyperinflation…. Argentine was bankrupted everything was failing apart they default all international Debt with stand US$132 billion, then Argentine make very very small but painful change Argentine end fixed rate exchange Argentine peso to dollar this simple change at fist painful but with in 3 years Argentine recover and start paying her foreign loan …

    what is the moral of the story is u dont need sophisticated change very simple but logical change will do .. in Ethiopia case the government must follow the following

    1. encourage import substitution …

    2. computirzed tax paying system today we should be able to pay our tax using our smartphone we should not go to tax revenue office and line up the whole day.. Kenyan doing it Ghana doing it..

    3. national ID, this BIOMETRIC system can scan your finger or use Iris recognition system for tax payment, banking system and as ID

    4.use smart collection system then auditing

    for example if shop owner declare his asset is one million birr and pay tax based on one million birr he cant insure his shop for ten million birr …if the shope burn down the insurance only pay him one million birr

    second he cant take loan more then what u own if u declared ur asset is one million birr then u cant get long more then ur asset …. ur loan assessment will be based on what u declare to tax man this way u r under cutting yourself from a lot of opportunity if u under declare ur asset

    5. tax return ,,, this is very important then tax revenue …. ur cousin only paying their tax but they dont see the benefit of paying tax ., collectively they might be benefited but not individually so paying tax make it more painful

    here is what i mean do the government take care of u at old age the retirement payment to ur cousin. does the government protect ur cousin business, does ur cousin business enjoy bankruptcy protection chapter 13? ..

    now the most important thing is money laundering if u make tax high and if u tightened corruption then a lot of elite and government official will be forced to launder money then keeping it locally…

    how u fix that easy u start paying a real money to ur government official for example the tax man Melaku Fenta or Beker Shale who replace him collect 100 billion birr in tax now tell me how much money did Melaku or Beker make 3000 birr each per month while collecting 100 billion dollar it doesnt matter who u put in this absolute power soon or later they will be corrupted absolutely so the best thing to do is pay them the real market value.. which is 1% what they collected for example if this years they collected 100 billion and they increased it to 110 billion next year u pay them 1% our ten billion increase the managed to collect … the commission % can be 0.5 or less the more money come in the less the % would be

    i try to answer in general without going one by one to your question .. one thing we Ethiopia should know is America and Western preach capitalism but they r not pure capitalism when the big bank the fail, president Bush bail them out in tune of 700 billion free money and the president Obama double down to 1 trillion incentive and recover money this is the people who preaching us free capitalism but they take care of their big business so we should take care of our critical industry like EFFORT OR any critical industry some even ask me why not EFFORT doesnt sale public share.. my answer is Ethiopian government doing deregulation a lot of government own business privatised so why not those who want to puy share in EFFORT why not take this government owned business as of now a lot of them goes to Foreign ownership … u might say u dont have 100 million dollar but why not sale share why not partner with government 49/51 deal where government own only 41% there are many way of starting business in Ethiopia less competition and a lot of market … Ethiopian in West wasting their time fighting over politicise then fixing the problem …

    Ittu Aba Farda, thanks for giving me opportunity to serve my mother Ethiopia … u cant pay me enough to labour like this to answer ur question.. to me i know it might not be effective ..but i wish my hand from the sin if Ethiopia economy collapsed i will say at least i did my part and my my conscience is clear and free and i can sleep at night knowing i did my part… i encourage HOPE, DOMA, ABABAW LAST AND Ancient and other to have a break today is Sunday and let talk about tax system and economy once in your life be constrictive and suggest something that u know i know TPLF is evil u dont have to repeat this but tell us how u going to fix it if u have a power beside removing TPLF … IF U DONT HAVE ANY thing to say on this topic i understand

    • “In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful”. HUH!!!
      Hello!! Don’t you know that you can’t manipulate God, as you have manipulated Ethiopians throughout Ethiopia spreading hatred and racism? Don’t you know that God has given you a free will to choose good or evil? –obviously, you and the rest of the bloodyhand organized Woyane criminals have chosen to serve Lucifer!!
      I can’t believe you mentioned God’s name knowing that you are one of the strongest supporters of the evildemented Woyanes that have robbed, starved, severly beaten, tortured, locked up, evicted, burned alive, sterilized and massacred innocent humanbeings and children as young as 6, 7 and 14!!! What you have committed on our Gambelans brothers and sisters alone, is evil, and that you Woyanes are inhumane!! You are the same as those evildemented ISIS that decapitated our 35 Ethiopians, and turned around praised Allah and bow down and prayed!! Outrageous!!

    • ash,

      I hope this reply will find you and your family graced by The Almighty Our Creator with peace and His Blessings. May The Good Lord, The Most Merciful Save Our People!!!!

      Thank you for taking the time to explain in detail the steps that have been taken to collect taxes in timely and organized manner. As long as it is conducted in a fair-to-all legislated fashion, it is something that must be commended. I hope our business culture of ‘the price is right when the dickering stops’ will be gradually faced out at least at the major retail shops. I remember my reaction when I went shopping for the first time here in the USA. I came here fresh from the bazaars of Cairo and the former British Aden Protectorate where you should not buy anything at sticker prices and must chaffer with the seller for a few rounds until the final price is acceptable both to the seller and buyer was the norm. You can see the same custom of retailing even in Hong Kong at their fabled ‘The Magnificent Mile’ shopping district on Nathan Road. But here you don’t bargain at Macy’s, Targets, Walmarts or any another retail stores. The price is already right there. And they are required by law to sell everything with a receipt thru cash registers. I am quite convinced that to make such retailing a norm in a country like Ethiopia may not be completely possible. Its implementation seems to be spotty. It is quite obvious that in that country ethnicity is the main driving force in its politics. When ethnicity is playing a major role in politics there will not be any blinking at the facts it is playing a role in moving the economy. People are shouting out loud bemoaning rampant nepotism along ethnic lines. I watched one video online where one high profile official asking a question why unemployment rate is much lower in one region than others. I am not there but that former high government office must have hard evidence to ask such a bold question. I also understand that ethnic politics is found everywhere in Africa playing roles. But in doing so it has been the main reason for destructive mayhem and carnage.

      You have exhibits examples to justify how tax returns of private companies are as such, private and confidential. I have no problem with that. But public companies and charities including churches are not and should not be in that category. Even those individuals who are in the government positions or running for public offices are always pressure to make their income history and at least their recent tax returns. In majority cases they usually oblige to the pressure.

      Now correct me if I am wrong on this one. My understanding is that EFFORT is both a public company and charity. It is public because it is owned for and by the noble people of Tigray. According to its public profile it was founded by the people of Tigray and for the people of Tigray when war and famine were raging there during the regime of demonic Mengistu in the 1980’s. That makes it both a public company and a charity. Or is it now a private company owned by few individuals? I just located its website and this is what I found on its website under ‘About Us’ section: ‘ The Endowment Fund for the Rehabilitation of Tigray (EFFORT) was established in 1987 E.C under the Ethiopian Commercial Code of 1960 as a charitable endowment fund from resources donated by its members.’. As a charity it must have been benefited from many tax exemptions over the years. Am I wrong with that? The question is what were those exemptions and how much did it cost the tax payers? Lets put in perspective. If you and I need to see the financials of United Way or similar charitable organizations all we have to do request it or it may even be available on their website already. If a company is a public organization it is required to make its income statements, balance sheets and all other financial documents readily available, nowadays on their websites. I tried to find any financial document on EFFORT website and found none. They are frank to list the companies they own but don’t tell their size financially. I want to reiterate my stance when it comes to private property. It is my conviction that private accumulation of capital must always be promoted and protected as long as it was obtained legally the old fashion way, thru hard work and ingenuity. So EFFORT was created as a charity but has forayed into owning many companies in several sections of the economy. It should be commended for listing the names of multi million companies it owns. It will also be commended if it makes its financials public for everyone to see and allow 3rd parties to verify them. From what I heard and read over the years the secretive operations of this organization has been a rallying cry and lightening rod for many. They may be worried that even if they make their finances public that nobody will believe them. Well there will always be those who doubt anything. There are individuals who doubted the tax returns when someone made one of President Trump’s returns public. There will always be doubters. ‘Birthers’ were and still are doubters. But countries should not and can not be ruled with self doubting.

      By the way, young man, I see you hurling improper name calling against an entire ethnic groups. You see. Our Tigray brothers and sisters are noble people. So are our Amhara brothers and sisters. So are my own Oromos. So are every other brothers and sisters from every ethnic group in the old country. They have lived and died together respecting each other for many centuries. Who I am alluding to is the common man and woman and not those in the ruling circles. Let’s not fan the fire into a raging one. We should all do our best to put it out.

      Thank you again for your detailed response. In the meantime to all others who have reading our conversation on this specific issue I want to tell them all that for the sake of peace and well being of those glorious people of the old country, I am finding myself beholding to you all. I am beholding to you all to stay away from using derogatory shibboleths in addressing other you might they are another ethnic group. Stifle from that. Such bad manner was the magic wand of hideous elements in any despotic regimes. That has been the playbook they use to pitch one ethnic group against so they can continue to rule their ways. Stifle, stifle, stifle, stifle!!! Nuff nagging you now!!!!

      • Ittu Aba Farda

        All derogatory name i used before gone .. because u ask me to stop and i will stop..

        now about price bargain price haggling

        I love them, u feel like u getting discount when u haggle the price … in away to make the price fair..for example if u r poor u will haggle a lot and u getting discount that u could afford then the rich man will pay the difference and the seller will be making profit even so if he lose selling for lower income costumer u will make it with richer costumer …

        in Western country there is also haggling and bargaining what do u think Sale price mean discount 25% they r doing all kind of trickery to make u buy in fact air mile and other point also the same thing like haggling back home… but much modern and it apply to everyone but in Ethiopia u have to know the market otherwise u might pay higher price…

        to stop price haggling is easy u must make the sole proprietorship it is in their best interest to post price and use cash machine ..telling the shop owner to sell everything with a receipt thru cash registers is in their best interest… u give an example Walmart ..they use cash register not to benefit the government but to control the cash flow … by doing this they can have Walmart can open shop in America everywhere but imagine the only accepted cash and u relying on cashier to be honest instead of 4,672 store they would only have one store and the owner still mind it…

        in Ethiopia if u ask any shop owner the first thing they will tell u is they going to rob me.. or there is no one i can trust… u see u depend in people honesty .. in America they depended on the system hence they can have many store and make more money then counting haggling cents from one store … besides business required high level of honesty in Ethiopia cheating considered as being smart… if the shop keeper try to sale u at higher price instead of try to make u repeat costumer… we luck business ethics .. in fact if u haggled to much and if u break their price they might even insult u… so it need a lot of work to make the business to bar with Western standard

        second about receipt… why do u ask for receipt.. in Ethiopia they tell u to take the receipt to help the government getting their tax.. they want u to work for them for free.. in Western country u need receipt if u have return policy u get return … if the guy sell u at higher price and if u find discount price later own u can return and u get money in fact some goods and service have a Cooling-off period by law.. so if Ethiopian buyer if they have buyer bill of right then they start demanding receipt otherwise they get their discount and every body happy…

        ABOUT EFFORT i will not go back again but i already answered it for u.. all EFFORT company r critical to economy which need protection from government forget paying tax they should be given free money and monopoly to grow .. that is how American and Western did to their critical company they give them monopoly and protection so they can grow .. as long as EFFORT is profitable i dont see any problem with them they r reinvesting their money every time they growing … my question AG7, OLF and ONLF can start their own company no body stop them all those Ethiopian American they can start their own share company no body stop them they will get the same treatment they will not pay tax and they will be given free land if they invested in critical company but most Ethiopian American are investing in hair Sloan, sport bar, nail bar, night club and hotel … this is not critical to economy .. so they dont get break if they want to invest in real manufacturing and farming no body no body at all stop them forget everything why not take one warehouse from industrialize zone … instead of protesting every Sunday…in front of White house.. thanks Trump will not allow them no more because i dont see them anymore…

        if corruption bother u i think the best way is to have free press.. those people might ask hard question why sugar factory promised to be finished five years and took ten years /// this kind of question i dont even mind if the government cancelled anti corruption and give the money to journalist and let them bring out the truth ..

        • ash,

          Thank you for your reply. I will make a note of your report on the organization I questioned, EFFORT. As I mentioned umpteen times before, I give a flying hoot if anyone goes in there to open modern industrial factories with the objective of weaning that country off the moribund agrarian economy. I say kudos to this organization and all other companies along with individual industrialists who are involved in such a transformation. Even the daughter of Mussolini wants to open a lingerie factory after sincerely apologizing for what her dad did to our people in the 1930’s, I would say to her come on in and open your factory but you have to hire a minimum number of people. I don’t really care who does it. I swear I will never complain about that. That is how desperate I feel when I see each day passes by with the old country still standing at the spot where it was 100 years ago. But all that should be done with a level of transparency except the national security. Making financials of a major public conglomerate available at request by the citizens will not put the nation’s security at risk. I think you had spoken mistakenly about the evolution of the indomitable American private enterprise. Yes it had provided tax reliefs and protections from unfair competitions from European industrial giants. That was because American scientists and entrepreneurs were churning out new inventions at unprecedented pace. Their inventions and patents were intended mostly for the growing domestic consumption. But that was a different world then. We should not also forget how the US congress de-monopolize(broke apart) Standard Oil in the early 20th century and again 80 years later AT&T. You see that could only be done in a true democracy like the American system(UK included). EFFORT should make its financial public including all those that are owned by the public. So let’s leave at that.

          Ok. Young man. It has been a pleasure to have a few words with you regarding affairs we both believe important for those glorious people who produced us all. I also commend you for not reverting to unwanted name calling and hurling insults. That is a behavior of those who our Amhara brothers and sisters call ‘balega’. That is equivalent to Eyal al souqs, those who grew up unattended at dysfunctional bazaars and grew sideways refusing to grow straight up the whole time. It showed you are not one of them. Such miscreants had hurled the most obscene ‘f’ and ‘sh’ words at me like candies. We the people of Ethiopia are so cultured people to be admired by various foreigners who traveled extensively in the old country many times over centuries. All they wrote about our people was how we are cultured, respectful but in the meantime fiercely patriotic/independent. They never said we were ‘balegas’, rude people. You see Rome was not built with people insulting each other. Did it? Yes those brilliant engineers were screaming at each other going over their blue prints. So please accept my appreciation.

          In the meantime, don’t forget to watch the 5,000 meters final this coming Saturday. That 17 yr old kid, Barega, is a force to reckon with. And he has two helps. Like I said under another topic, those 3 old country finalists should pull the playbook of Kip Keino from the 1,500M final at the 1968 Olympics. They should not let that slip away. If this young man wins on Saturday, that will boost his morale into the stratosphere he will be unstoppable for the next decade. At least. He will be in my daily prayers.

  18. Ancient Somalia,

    The past can’t be changed. The future is yet in your power.

    unknown

    We must not dwell on the past too much. We must learn from past mistakes and aspire to do better in the future. There is no doubt that crimes were committed in the past by those self appointed so called leaders. No one chose them to be leaders and they abused their power by committing heinous crimes.

    Have the Woyane thugs learned anything from the past and introduced a system that would serve all of us ? Are we going to make the entire Tigray people accountable for the despicable crimes perpetrated by Woyane Tigre thugs?

    Blaming descendants of the past regimes for the crimes committed by those called leaders is a mistake. The only problem I can observe from some people is that failure to acknowledging the past mistakes of so called leaders and unwillingness to change their deep rooted attitudes towards other people. In my opinion an attitude change of an epic proportion is needed to march forward. We must respect and treat others the same we want to be treated. I think the notion, ‘either my way or to the highway ‘ is not going to work after the eventual demise of Woyane thugs.

    As you know, the TPLF thugs claim they fought to rectify the injustices committed by the Menelik, Haileselasie, and Mengestu. See what they have done in the last twenty six years against our people. I remember you saying the Woyane thugs killed more people than the previous regimes combined. We all agree.

    Woyane Tigre bandits are unable to see forward. They still talk about the past misdeeds of the defunct regimes while committing horrific crimes against our people. They blame Amhara for all the problems they had including for their dry land. They made our country landlocked and killed millions of our people. I am not advising you to forget the past, I just want you to focus your attention on Woyane thugs and into the future . Our attention should focus on how we can bring a better tomorrow for each and every one that lives in our country!

    • To be honest, I am not and have never been supporter of the woyane prostitutes and thugs, not by any stretch of imagination, but I mostly agree with what brother Snake Charmer (aka ex-Ayalew- Magnu/Sew Amagnu) sentiment or frustration when it comes to the so-called opposition groups. They seem unprincipled, too weak and power-mongering , dishonest and too vague about all important issues the nation is facing now such as democratic ideals, access to port, rule of law, rampant violence and stability, transparency, good governance, true federalism system, etc.

      That said, two more mature people that respect and appreciates of their two cents are Shewaraga and Ittu Aba Farda, not of the least their sense of maturity and realistic approach about the complex politico- and so-economic issues. The rest seem either too angry and too naive or mindless or too thuggish of woyane witch brew insults thrown all directions.

          • Ginbot-7 Snake Damo: All I ask of EVERYBODY is: BE HONEST WITH ETHIOPIANS – Tell Ethiopians THE TRUTH! Here is part of my response to Abebaw yesterday:

            “… Ginbot-7’s leaders helped the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF set foot and spread its wings in Ethiopia for 14 years [1991-2005]. Most of the complaints posted here happened in those years: the Amhara & Christian Oromo massacre, loss of Assab port, Ethnic Zonal System, EPLF’s War Crimes on Ethiopia’s POWs, etc.

            If Ginbot-7’s leaders cared about Ethiopia, would they look the other way when all that was happening under their own noses? Weren’t they enjoying the benefits of the regime and running their own businesses as business-as-usual? Why would I ever trust them to a penny let alone give them Ethiopia?…”

            That’s why I say: Both Ginbot-7 & TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF don’t stand for Ethiopia! Instead of challenging me with facts to the contrary, Ginbot-7’s supporters resort to their Hallmark: Lies, Cover-Ups, Deception, Dishonesty, Misinformation Campaigns, Insults, Smear Campaigns, Character Assassinations, Diversion, Intimidation, Harassment, etc.

            Dr. Birhanu was one of Meles Zenawi’s closest associates. If Meles is a demon, what do you call a demon’s closest associate? Why would I ever support Ginbot-7 or TPLF?

            If Ginbot-7’s leaders looked the other way when all those atrocities were committed under their noses [1991-2005], why would I trust them to a penny let alone to Ethiopia? Weren’t they enjoying the regime’s benefits just like any Woyane & running their businesses as business-as-usual?

            If there are over 20 home-bred, home-grown and home-based ‘parties’, why not strengthen them? Doesn’t Ginbot-7’s riding in to Addis led by EPLF bring back 1991 AGAIN?

            How does a collection of Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based [Egypt-and-Eritrea’s puppet Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Fronts] stand for Ethiopia or unite Ethiopians? If Ginbot-7 ever usurps power with Egypt’s & Eritrea’s help, how is it going to serve all 3 [Ethiopia, Eritrea and Egypt]?

I haven’t heard G7 raping women in Ogaden and killing their children in front of them. I haven’t seen G7 gunning down peaceful protesters in Gonder and Gojam.

            There is absolutely no comparison between the mass looters, the mass country sellers, the mass murderers of innocent Ethiopians –T-TPLF and the Freedom Fighters –G7 that have put their lives on the line to stop the mass murderer T-TPLF from slaughtering Ethiopians; and totally destroying our motherland Ethiopia!! You keep on blaming the likes of Dr. Berhanu Negga for working with TPLF. But, no one in Ethiopia ever thought TPLF could have turned out to be the most evildemented, soulless, desensitized inhumane creatures!! The entire Ethiopian population were excited to get rid of that madman bloodthirsty animal Mengestu and the entire country gave TPLF the support and the benefit of the doubt — not knowing that the TPLF were the homegrown terrorists have been committing crimes and killing their own Tigrean people, and been plotting and anxiously waiting to loot, to sell and steal Ethiopians lives, land and treasury …, and continue to incarserate, beat up, torture and massacre Ethiopians that trusted and welcomed them to bring the badly needed peace!!
            Like most people on this website, I’m not knowledgeable about G7, but from what I have read, T-TPLF and G7 are night and day!! I have the utmost respect for any Ethiopian that put his/her life on the line for the sake of others and love of country!!

            To me, the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF is an invader-and-occupier AND Ginbot-7’s leaders helped the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF set foot in Ethiopia & spread its wings. So, BOTH are criminals!

            Dr. Birhanu was one of Meles Zenawi’s closest associates. If Meles is a demon, what do you call a demon’s closest associate? Why would I ever support Ginbot-7 or TPLF?”

            Why would I ever trust EPLF/Eritrea for anything? Among its mischief, isn’t EPLF the same Fascist who assembled Ethiopian POW’s on a runway & massacred them? Didn’t it also massacre Ethiopian marines, douse them with gasoline & set them on fire?

            I have never taken you seriously and I will never. For me , you are an expired ‘ Areke’ that tastes awful. You don’t count because you are as useless as a dead cockroach. You can cry once in a while but you are not going to change anyone’s opinion about you.

            Why do you care if anyone goes to Eritrea or Egypt and does what ever he wants? Who gave the authority to speak on behalf of Ethiopians and tell them that this group is good and the other is bad? Do you think our people will listen to a depressed a slaughter house gate keeper somewhere in Missouri?

            There is a guy name Abel who has been spewing his venom on social media. You may be his mouth piece or as I said earlier, a paid Woyane agent. Listen and listen good: no body cares about your boring balderdash. If you have something positive, let us know.

          • Damo [‘ጉንበት-7’ Chimp]: Ethiopians should be EXTRA vigilant about EPLF/Eritrea & the Eritreans in Ethiopia SINCE Ethiopian Lives Matter & Ethiopian Security Matters!

            1. Didn’t EPLF/Eritrea commit War Crimes against Ethiopian POWs by assembling the army/militia on a runway and massacring them? Didn’t it also massacre Ethiopian marines, douse them with gasoline & set them on fire?

            2. Didn’t ‘ጉንበት-7’ sympathizers in the Ethiopian Air Force STEAL fully loaded Mig-29 fighter jet(s), combat helicopters, flight training plane(s), etc. and take to Eritrea? Didn’t 85% of the cost come from Oromo & Amhara farmers?

            3. Didn’t General Kemal Gelchu [OLF-IFLO] take his whole Oromo battalion to Eritrea and hand all the weapons to EPLF/Eritrea? Didn’t EPLF/Eritrea rearm itself? Didn’t 85% of the cost come from poor Oromo & Amhara farmers?

            3. Didn’t Meles Zenawi sign an Ethio-Eritrean mutual-defense pact & give Eritrea the Ethiopian Army’s and the Ethiopian Air Forces’s LATEST weapons [planes, helix, tanks, etc.]? Didn’t EPLF use them to invade Yemen, Ethiopia and Djibouti?

            You are worried about a Woyane jet that was taken to Eritrea? Again you exposed yourself to the whole world. You are no more than a TPLF thug hired to divert our attention from the real enemy. As I said, you can cry the whole day. No body listens to your mumbo jumbo. I would rather advise to tell us your role in the death of many innocent children and women. Why are you so scared of G7 unless you are a criminal? They are Coming for you.

        • I couldn’t agree more. the people want change and are even willing to give up their life for it, but what is holding them (for 26 years) is the fear of the unknowns. remember 1974?? what the opposition should do is do what it did in 2005 except for waving the dumb ‘tigre wede-mekele’ slogan and the squandering of its huge victory by walking out of parliament including the entire addis abeba administration. the moto should be “you take what you won and you fight for more”, just like the wise oromos are currently doing with regard to Addis.

  19. Is this to early to say RIP to phd. Al mariam ? what happened to him,

    is he out off enemy? i find him enemy poverty and corruption he can write about those two topic … i understand After WHO rejected ur open litter .. i dont blame u to give up …

    • We don’t know the reason behind it, why nazret.com waits 4 days to post the highly respected and loved Ethiopian hero, professor Al’s article — but it can be found on other Ethiopian websites.
      In the meantime, watch and listen to this informative interview about T-TPLF dictators from our other hero Abebe Gellaw, that humiliated the evildemented MelAss and sent him to his final home — HELL!
      T-TPLF continue to lie, manipulate, loot, lock up, torture, chase Ethiopians out of their land, burn people alive, but slowly their undeniable corruptions and bonechilling crimes is coming out.
      Watch:

      • Phd, al mariam worte 4480 page to tell us how TPLF is corrupted.. i am telling u in few word yes, TPLF is corrupted the point is how to fix it.. that is the point those this idiot took him mind bogeying 4480 page to tell us what we already known … i how he is not implying Dr.birr is clear of corruption… dr.birr took power for last 27 years and never resigned he never face election he have no term limit.. even if AG7 win he will be life time leader and this the same people telling us about corruption.. OLF and ONLF leaders all the same they have no term limit fix that first before u talk about other …

        anyhow i am expecting PHD. AL mariam after his medical check up to write about the solution for corruption

        HOPE, DOMA, AND ABABAW

        let me give u a deal i will ban my self u guys wrote about corruption how we can solve it… give us a solution i am as good as gone.. that LASTA dont worry about him he told me he is an Eritrean named tark

        after WHO rejected his open litter he is not the same … sorry and RIP is in order

        • ash aka asheberiwe shiftaw hayelom,

          We can’t fix the TPLF. It must be destroyed and buried for ever. That is exactly why Ethiopians are trying to do. We can spare ugly coolis like you to hang on our walls as a trophy!

          • Damo

            i will give u one more chance to ban me… okay i agree with u let the TPLF removed how u going to solve corruption do u think it is based on ethnicity .. do u think Amhara doesn’t be corrupted what do u mean removing TPLF .. THAT Is the solution is that ur solution i am expecting more from u… or u dont mind if ur ethnic LOOTING let me know ur solution

            i mean after TPLF GONE

          • Ash ASHebarew Sifta Hagos,

            Woyane must be eradicated. Your Woyanes are good for nothing. You have committed many crimes including corruption. We want you to go back to Tigraye and work on your Beles farm. The last twenty years have shown that you can’t live with humans. You very backward. You guys cannot handle Tegab!

      • I hope Ethiopians watch our hero Abebe Gellaw’s interview with one of the group of people regrettably, that helped the brutal T-TPLF mafia to take power, David Steinman!! Mr. Steinman said that the TPLF regime are being investigated!! So far, it looks like the investigators have confirmed what Ethiopians have been saying for decades that the T-TPLF looters have been robbing the country blind and building Vilas, stashing money in China, Singapore, etc. and that they must go!!
        Hallelujah!! The end of the tortureres and the mass murderers of innocent lawabiding Ethiopians is coming soon!!!
        Notice in the background — the despicable Woyanes brutality –kicking and beating up Ethiopians that have stumbled on the ground!! PURE EVILNESS!!
        UGH!!

    ” Trying to tear down the past prohibits U from building up UR future” U R here beeeeeeeching 24/& with the same F’K’N oratory in spite of waiting for insanity. When is the last time we have a conversation over ur grand father Sultan Gragn Mohammed, who cooked and ate many Abyssinian. Keep blaming 200 years old Minilik history for UR wicked act until Gragn Mohammed runs out of virgins. U R so ignorant why not start a new propaganda war telling other fools, the 77 virgins rule promised for their death was rescinded. Very surprised U weren’t euthanized at birth. Idiot!

    • @addis ababa serfere

      First of all Gragn Mohammed was an Afar, and secondly he never killed no innocent civilians, he was only defending his Adal sultanate empire from the ever expanding Habesha rulers, when he reached the gate of the Habesha highlands he only burned empty churches but when menlik invaded the land of Adal Sultanate and other southerns regions he cut the breast of the Muslims woman, made large muslims covert to Christians, burned towns and villages and hanged man from trees and took woman and children as slaves.

      Menlik was using ISIS brutality beheading his opponents people, raping woman/girls, killing none Christians etc.

      You cannot deny this massacre because it’s written in history,
      *go and ask the people of Asri,
      *go and ask the people of Harar,
      *and the people of Dire Dawa.

      Even search Google the crimes of menlik is there for the whole world to see.

      Denying the crimes of minlik will certainly make things much worse so you as Amhara and other Amharas must accept the crimes of minlik.

      When woyana is kicked out tomorrow do you thing everything will be sweet? Nah there will be a long process which could even take a 100 years so put your seatbelt on.

      As you estimated earlier, the more concerned Ethiopians the closer the favorability of the tigre liberation thugs to 0.001%. You correctly estimated it with a 99.9% level of confidence that the TPLF’s likability in the true/ entire Ethiopian population is almost zero per cent.

      • Yes my brother, people are picking up the drift, it’s tumbling down LOL. It would have been so nice, if everybody, or at least the overwhelming majority spoke in one voice. The problem is the problems of the country are complex, and the occupiers are masters at exploiting that to their advantage. But the majority is begining to understand that. It’s just a matter of time.

            Good to hear you show compassion for humanity and human life. Prof. Alemayehu is a voice for all – regardless of differences in language, religion and region. The only stone heart wishing him bad luck to the great professor is the walking dead Ash of the dedebit. Now, TPLF is in despair and has become so pessmits sitting in prayers asking their Sata idol to harm prominent personalities. Well, no body will check out before the doddering and fragile TPLF thugs.

    • Ash,
      More for you to chew on from our hero professor Al’s article on the corruptions of the organized T-TPLF mafia:
      “…Banks loan millions of dollars to front enterprises owned by regime officials or their supporters without sufficient or proper collateral. T-TPLF officials and supporters do not have to repay millions of dollars in “loans”
      borrowed from the state banks and their debts are overlooked or forgiven…”

      • Hope

        idiot that is how seed money work,,, in America if u have good idea Trump will give u billion of dollar to start ur business only having good idea is enough

        collateral is for Amhara and for oromo who want to open bar, and night club and sport club then u need coollateral

          • Hope: Ash(ebari)[ቴረሪስት]was just quoting the TPLF’s Economic Manifetso: “collateral is for Amhara and for oromo.”

            What’s wrong with you Ginbot-7’s Chimps? Don’t you even like an ‘honest’ Woyane?

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-Ayalew Mognu/Sew Amagnu]

          • ayalew_mognu

            CAN u read what i said .. the bank is not asking them because they r Amhraa or oromo they asking them 98,9% Amhara open night culb, sport bar any thing to do with [email protected] industry and beer so the bank ask for collateral…

            u dont trust me why not visit little Ethiopia in Dc and u will see what i mean restaurant after restaurant beer bar after beer bar this people only know one business restaurant .. four point …Ethiopia is full of night club and sport bar that opened by Ethiopian America forget to give them money we should shut them down

            on the other hand Tigray people r very creative people they in to manufacturing …. if Amhara or oromo want to do the same they r welcome TPLF will give them free land and tax holiday.. but they dont have what it take the only thing they know is opening up more restaurant… if u say the guy is creative then he open up bakery cake የኬክ ቤት

            if i make mistake i am more then happy to be corrected

          • Forbes.com:
            “….Two numbers tell the story in a nutshell:

            1. The amount of American financial aid received by Ethiopia’s government since it took power: $30 billion.

            2. The amount stolen by Ethiopia’s leaders since it took power: $30 billion…”

          • This has not yet included the recent millions of dollars the U.S. sent to the TPLF’s ATM machine in the name of famine and drought assistance. By the way that is where Ash, the troll general, bonus and per dime will get paid.

          • that 30 billion dollar is not ur money why do u care ?

            at least TPLF stole it ur father mengistu haile mariam took 30 billion russian ruble and bought GUN with it and wage war

            ur grand father took 30 billion pound and deposed in Swiss bank

            ur buddy Dr.birr took 500dollar from taxi driver and give them citizenship paper without a nation

            choose ur poison

      • Hope,

        First, do you think those banks are state banks? I don’t think so. I would not call them state banks. I would rather call them TPLF’s illegal financial institutions. State land, state bank, etc etc is a cover-up. The none Tigreans off course need collateral because they are taking from the Tigre /Tigre Liberation Bank. በገዛ ዳቦዬን ልብ ልቡን አጣሁት ይባል የለም። የትግሬ ወመኔ ሽፍታ ሁሉን በእጅ በእግሩ እየቦጠቦጠው።

          No matter how much the likes of Ash spin their lies, and come up idiotic excuses, they will never be able to hide the truth!! The truth always finds it’s way out!!
          The inhumane organized mafia Woyane criminals started by kidnapping, incarserating, torturing, killing and robbing their ownTigreans citizens and banks in Tigrae province. These T-TPLF  thieves have no conscience, sympathy, remorse for anyone!! They came to Addis with one thing in mind, to divide Ethiopians, control and loot and sell everything insight, including selling babies for the live of money and get rich quick — and they have done just that, even burning people alive!! God only knows how many billions of dollars Ethiopia is in debt!! These barbaric creatures don’t have love of country. Their goal is to get wealthy by every means of necessary!! Development at the cost of precious Ethiopians lives to serve the few evildemented Woyane creatures!! What T-TPLF have committed on our Gambelans brothers and sisters alone, can causes people to faint!!

      Ashebarewi Shifta Hagos,

      You need to stop acting like a cooli . No one expects you to act otherwise but at least try to act like a human being when you decided to post your rubbish on this website. Learn from your peers and tegadaley friends like Ittu and ayalew_mognu . You must first pass an examination and get a license even to mention the name AL let alone to bash him. I know that a ahifta doesn’t respect people. But we will help you to get out of your jungle life if you are willing change.

      Twenty six years and you haven’t changed a bit. You can take a Woyane thug out of Dedebit but you can not take the Dedebit out of the Woyane thug. I hope, Shiftaw Hagos, you will head my advice.

  29. Damo [‘ጉንበት-7’-EPLF Chimp]: Ethiopians should be vigilant about EPLF/Eritrea, Ginbot-7, the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF and the Eritreans in Ethiopia SINCE Ethiopian Lives Matter! I will post this till you STOP your EPLF/Ginbot-7 Smear Campaign against me:

    1. If Ginbot-7’s leaders turned a blind eye, a deaf ear and played deaf-blind [from 1991-2005] when the regime committed all those crimes & gross human rights violations under their noses [1991-2005], why would I entrust them to a penny let alone to Ethiopia?

    2. The TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF is an invader-and-occupier AND Ginbot-7’s leaders helped the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF set foot in Ethiopia & spread its wings. Aren’t both criminals?

    3. Dr. Birhanu was one of Meles Zenawi’s closest associates. If Meles is a demon, what do you call a demon’s closest associate? Why would I ever support Ginbot-7 or TPLF?”

    4. Does a collection of Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Puppets stand for Ethiopia or unite Ethiopians? If Ginbot-7 ever usurps power with Egypt’s & Eritrea’s help, how is it going to serve all 3 [Ethiopia, Eritrea and Egypt]?

    5. Didn’t EPLF/Eritrea commit War Crimes against Ethiopian POWs by assembling the army/militia on a runway and massacring them? Didn’t it also massacre Ethiopian marines, douse them with gasoline & set them on fire?

    6. Didn’t ‘ጉንበት-7’ sympathizers in the Ethiopian Air Force STEAL fully loaded Mig-29 fighter jet(s), combat helicopters, flight training plane(s), etc. and take to Eritrea? Didn’t 85% of the cost come from Oromo & Amhara farmers?

    7. Didn’t General Kemal Gelchu [OLF-IFLO] take his whole Oromo battalion to Eritrea and hand all the weapons to EPLF/Eritrea? Didn’t EPLF/Eritrea rearm itself? Didn’t 85% of the cost come from poor Oromo & Amhara farmers?

    8. Didn’t Meles Zenawi sign an Ethio-Eritrean mutual-defense pact & give Eritrea the Ethiopian Army’s and the Ethiopian Air Forces’s LATEST weapons [planes, helix, tanks, etc.]? Didn’t the EPLF/Eritrea use them to invade Yemen, Ethiopia and Djibouti?

      There isn’t a single organization out there which sends your Woyane thugs into panic mode like G7. We give them thumbs up for creating ESAT which has raised the awareness of our people about the crimes of your TPLF. If for no any other reasons, we applaud G7 for establishing ESAT.

      We know that this is your last chance to save the dying TPLF Shiftas. Ethiopians don’t care about an old washed up TPLF agent. You can copy and past all the propaganda pamphlets from aiga forum but you ain’t change the opinion of anyone except ash and a couple of your Woyane comrades. You empty bravo won’t do anything!

    • Indeed!! Mognu shamelessly has been telling us the same T-TPLF propaganda, deceptions and tactics not to single out the actual Woyane criminals, but to paint everybody with the same broad brush — Ethiopians that have nothing to do with T-TPLF billions of dollars robbery, with the selling of the country, incarserating, torturing and slaughtering innocent Ethiopians!!

      Here is few lines from our hero professor Al:
      “…The core business of the T-TPLF is corruption.
      The T-TPLF warlords who seized political power in Ethiopia in 1991 have always operated in secrecy like a racketeering criminal organization. Their principal aim for more than a quarter of a century has been the looting of the national treasury which they have accomplished by illicit capital transfers and by
      plunging the country into a bottomless pit of foreign debt…”

        I heard you loud loud bro.There is no much difference between EPLF,TPLF and any political entity that deals with them, regardless. It is nothing but devil’s work and eternal leprosy.How any genuine and conscious Ethiopian expect any thing good or help from Eritrea? Tigrians are their blood brothers too with the same evil mind set. Choosing between them is the proverbial fire and frying pan.Go figure! Ethiopian masses deserve better alternatives to fight back and nothing less.

          Why would they deafen us with “TPLF is the enemy [TRUE!]. Let’s get rid of it [TRUE!]” WITHOUT any replacement that has Ethiopia’s interest at heart? Do they want to plunge Ethiopia in to another 1974/1991 or are they paving the road for Ginbot-7 & EPLF/Eritrea take-over?

          Ginbot-7 & EPLF/Eritrea portray Ethiopians as too dumb to see through them by targeting & recruiting the most vulnerable: high school drop-outs, unemployed, etc. Even these recruits are dumping them in droves!

          Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu / Sew Amagnu)]

        • Mr. Ali,

          All I have read both in this page and all different prior postings have nothing to do putting G7 at the center of all issues to contrasting it with the T-TPLF regime. It appears to me, barely few individuals are kicking in G7 into the discussion to put TPLF off the hook and take the discussion to a deadened road. Figuring out why a select group of people doing this intently is not a rocket science. What is the point of an idea that itself does not even have an idea or directions, it is no more than a lip service to the suffering Ethiopians. Those of you who have an issue with G7 go join TPLF and challenge them , but most of us here on nazert.com are neither the God children of the tigre liberation thug nor G7. We know who our enemy is – it is right next to our nose. Too much circular argument is born either out of insincerity or impaired way out vision. Ethiopians do not deserve a locked -in- agreement with the tigre ethnic minority dynasty – no matter how much some die-hard individuals confounds matters and advocate hard.

          • Abebaw: You sound-like the perfect Chameleon for my questions:

            1. You deafen us with: “TPLF is the enemy [TRUE!]. Let’s get rid of it [Ok!]”. Who will take over that stands for Ethiopia? Do you want to plunge Ethiopia in to a 1974-like chaos OR are you paving the way for an EPLF-Ginbot7 take-over [like the 1991 EPLF-TPLF take-over]? What is in it for Ethiopia if Ginbot-7 replaces TPLF?

            2. Aren’t all TPLF, EPLF and Egypt Ethiopia’s enemies? Didn’t Egypt fund-train-arm both the TPLF-EPLF till 1991? Didn’t Eritrea commit War Crimes against Ethiopian POWs [gunning down the army & militia on a runway AND massacring the marines, dousing them with gasoline and setting them on fire]?

            3. Does a collection of Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Puppets stand for Ethiopia or unite Ethiopians? If Ginbot-7 ever usurps power with Egypt’s & Eritrea’s help, how will it serve all 3 masters [Ethiopia, Eritrea and Egypt]?

            4. When the TPLF-EPLF invaded-and-occupied Ethiopia in 1991, Ginbot-7’s leaders helped them set foot & spread their wings. Aren’t ALL criminals? Wasn’t Dr. Birhanu one of Meles’ closest associates. If Meles is a demon, what do you call a demon’s closest associate? Why would anyone support Ginbot-7 OR TPLF?

            5. If Ginbot-7’s leaders turned a blind eye, a deaf ear and played deaf-blind [from 1991-2005] when the regime committed all those crimes & gross human rights violations under their noses, why would I entrust Ginbot-7 to even a penny let alone Ethiopia?

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu/Sew Amagnu)]

          • Ato Ayalew,

            The fact that you complaining non-stop about G7, almost acting like doing PR work for the TPLF, sounds to me that your allegations are less than satisfactory. I don’t think you are a good whistle blower; you are just repeating and complaining the same stuff again and again. I wish one G7 troll accidentally read your thoughts; he/she would debunk your allegations for sure. Why would I care, when G7 becomes a pain in the butt for the TPLF and its trolls. I want all other oppositions to be a pain to the killer TPLF. I never came across either on the social media or blogs any G7 member complaining about other opposition members other than the tigre liberation thug/tplf.
            Your points under # 2 thru 5 are not applicable to me and are unrelated or do nothing to Ethiopia. I don’t know why you are duplicating the public relation work of the TPLF. I am not a paid TPLF’s spoke ዐፈ-ቀላጤ. Your question under number one is ridiculous, because you are legitimizing an illegitimate ethnic thug. You believe as if TPLF is ruling and should be there indefinitely. You are tacitly helping in selling fear to Ethiopians and taking them as hostages of your own pessimistic illusive view of the future. Let TPLF kiss the dust, Ethiopia has million gallant sons and daughters to restore lost dignity and order due to the Tigre bandits right away. I can’t wait celebrating the liberation of Ethiopia from the TPLF’s occupation.

          • Abebaw: Man-up & answer my questions! The CHEAP Smear Campaign of EPLF/Ginbot-7 parrots like you against me while putting Ethiopia on the chopping board STINKS! Here is what I addressed to your Comrade-in-Parroting:

            NewError: You wrote: “You can’t say ‘stake’ when a hostess asks you Fish or chicken. Our choice is between TPLF and the oppositions which we keep blaming…”?

            Here is the simplified version of what I have been trying to relay to Ginbot-7’s Parrots:

            1. The ‘Power Equation’ as it stands now: TPLF + EPLF [Embedded in TPLF] + EPRDF

            2. The ‘Power Equation’ Ginbot-7 proposes: Ginbot-7 + EPLF + Secessionists [OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc].

            My unanswered questions are: How does replacing TPLF & EPRDF with Ginbot-7 & Secessionists solve Ethiopia’s problems? Isn’t the EPLF/Eritrea the only winner in BOTH cases by having a ‘stock’ in BOTH ‘Power Equations’? Since when do the Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based secessionist ethnic liberation fronts have Ethiopia’s interest at heart? When have Egypt & Eritrea ever been Ethiopia’s friends? Is this attacking Dr. Birhanu?

            The question is when Tplf FAIL they create power vacuum.. none of the oppostion have army to keep the peace and order ..

            the power vacuum must be filled by 100,000 well train and disciplined army the opposition doesn’t have this army the opp. might have 200 army but the vacuum need 100,000 army where r u going to get that..

            yes u might say u going to organised army from the public yes u can do that but you can have will trained and well disciplined army what u get is hooligan with Gun… once u give hooligan gun and if they find out they can get anything they went with gun money and women who is going to give up their gun and become poor again .. u r seating up yourself for more anarchy…

            now if u throw in OLF AND ONLF they want their own army too if they give 100,000 oromo army gun then perfect storm … i know u try to paint a rosy picture here but that is what EPLF member thought before Isis Awarki took their victory and give them slavery for sure they regret it dying for this

          • Ash,

            The question should not be who will replace TPLF at all. This is not worth a sticky point. The crux is how would Ethiopians get TPLF stepped down or removed. Ethiopians who get TPLF stepped down or removed would have a legitimate replacement right away. I don’t know why both old and new TPLF brand talk about your arm racing with OLF and G7 that is none of my business. Scare them, if you can but it ain’t scare me at all.

    Did Shewa need any external help to liberate all the unlawfully detained Ethiopians from the fortified regime’s prison even at the height of the TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF’s fascism [when Shewa was under assault AND more under-siege than any part of Ethiopia]?

    You are the perfect examples of going from Ethiopia to ‘Ethiopia’: You are physically in the West in Western clothes but you remain the same old neighborhood bully preaching ‘Democracy & Freedom of Speech’ while trampling them under foot?

    Aren’t you deafening us with TPLF did this/that just to divert attention from Ginbot-7? You are well-versed in Mafia ‘ethics’ AND applying Al Capone’s last advice: “You can get more with a kind word and a gun than you can get with a kind word alone”?

    Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu / Sew Amagnu)]

  32. i am calling the assistance of almighty God to help me answering this question that million of Ethiopian poor immigrant life depend on it… how we handle the economy… so it is not a joke it is life and death question that we r trying to untangle

    Ittu Aba Farda

    i will go throw one by one about ESAT … NOT for ur benefit but for those people still have lingering question

    Edda Mussolini the daughter of Mussolini is 84 years old, i think u means is granddaughter Ms. Alessandra Mussolin

    anyhow her grandfather, Benito Mussolini, in fact build the 87% Addis Ababa and Gojjam, Jamma all road that connected Eritrea to Ethiopia a 1000 km road and many other built by her grandfather and he did it with five years. and even rumour had it even King Haile thought had Italy had another five years ….

    About sincerely apologising , the Italian apologised and paid kassa blood money… at that time king haile call a meeting and ask how they could use this money.. some of them said disturbed the money among those war veterans… the winning idea was to do something important as a nation instead of dividing the money and wasted they were right they chooses to build Koka Power Station… unlike the money shared by million one common interest serve us much better…

    u understand my point it doesnt matter who build it they cant take it with them ..

    the second point is if u have 30 million birr that is what Italian paid for blood kassa if u distribute the money among one million people 30 million birr become only 30 birr it is no longer powerful but as collective 30 million birr have a lot of power … i heard many people saying EFFORT looting from poor Ethiopian and building their empire…. again look at it this way if we will one million dollar in next lottery and if the pool is 1000 workers that means that one million dollar win is no longer one million dollar it will be reduced to 1000 dollar with is almost useless to do anything … but if those workers surprised their win and give back the money to business minded workers to wave his magic and start a business .. if the business doing well the member worker will do much better then dividing just one million dollar win.. the same way shouting the money is take from the poor … even if u give the poor their share it will not help them the best way is let EFFORT create job and let the poor get a job that would be the best solution then dividing the money and spend it without any tangible benefit.

    {{ We should not also forget how the US congress de-monopolize(broke apart) Standard Oil in the early 20th century and again 80 years later AT&T. You see that could only be done in a true democracy like the American system(UK included). EFFORT should make its financial public }}

    u even agreed that those indomitable American private enterprise. got protection in fact they got monopoly EFFORT doesn’t enjoy monopoly beside AT&T where not creative they were stagnate they need competition in Ethiopia case ESAT they competition they r not protected… that is the big difference and if it is not broken why r we fixing it..

    if we r asking for term limit and we want our politician to give up power then we have to have after life for our politician to do after politics.. look queen Azab give up power because she know she can be CEO of EFFORT … Dr. Arkebe Equbay reinvented himself as industrial park guru… you see he is more then happy to leave political power in exchange of this project we need more of it not less of it … it will encourage our politician to give up power and enter in business world ….

    u also thought America were more inventor then the other … the answer might be yes because of America is immigrant nation for example s Nikola Tesla, Serbian-American but people might think he is an American who invented Ac current and bankrupted Thomas Edison because Edison invented Dc current and he want everyone to use Dc current so he goes all out war with Tesla who was is former employee .. the point is the American gain more Iq because of immigration no doubt they r risk taker and business minded… even at that age they show their intelligent….this doesn’t mean their is no war between the Europe and America here is few example how American protected their industry now the measure taken 100 years doesnt look much but at that time it is huge

    house hold volt 110V while the European 220v
    so if u have radio make in Europe u cant use it in USA this way the American protecting their industry

    car industry protection left and right drive …. Phillips screwdriver famous in USA while Robertson screwdriver USED in Canada there are many example where the American and the West protecting their own industry while we African putting down our own

    example Nile dam.. now tell me why in God name an Ethiopian opposed to Nile dam..

    second the same people not only opposing the Nile dam they actively try to stop the Nile dam.. can u make me understand this .. this the same people boycotting EAL… SO when they accusing EFFORT i dont trust their motive i hope u will not take this against me because anti Ethiopian element …

    i give u one good example let say u r a teacher and everyone fail ur exam expect one guy he got all AAA .. now r u going to investigate why this one student got all A instead of investigating those who fail …

    u will not investigate why almaz ayana lapped those world class athlete it is not ur job to investigate Almaz ur job is to enjoy her victory..

    why r we investigating ESAT. FOR what they r making money, they r establishing factory after factory why in hell we r trying to fix thing that is not broken

    u read about 37 high official arrested because of corruption … those 37 official were managing ten sugar factory and spend ten billion of dollar and no show .. there is no sugar factory after ten year..

    if u remember Dr. Arkebe Equbay first give the industrial park project to Ethiopian contractors .. and it took them 8 years and the did not finished the job so Arkebe give the project to the Chinese with in 6 month the project finished .. my point is even if we take EFFORT and make it Ethiopian government property we will not run in it properly and we will drive it to ground.. as of now they r doing excellent job … why not fix the existing problem before we go to one that work and destroy it too..

    another thing is if u give everyone share of the wealth Ethiopia would be better off. for example if Ethiopia government give OLF LEADER, AND OGDAN LEADER give them some kind of project that they can milk million and give us peace u would not like it if we manged to convenience Dr.birr to run one project and saved us from AG88… to make it is small price to pay for peace and order… those people are the one who watch Ethiopian day and day out …therefore they deserved EFFORT even more

    • LOL

      I really hate to use this word, but this “agame cooli” is really trying to make us believe that he looting is good for us, what a stupid moron.

      Reminds me of the saying,

      YE ABON MEGEBERIA YEBELA YELEFELEFAL BILUT, MENEW ENAE ALEFELEFEM ALE, LOL

      The blood he spilled, the money he looted can’t make him shut his mouth.

      Let me tell you Mr Qomaxxaa, as a little kid I used to sit in front of the Emperor, thousands marching with “lit chebo” in hand singing “Eyoha Abebaye meskerem ttebaye”. The last I clearly remember was Meskel 1973, with Indian President Mohareji Desai present. A person who saw that day, thousands of kubur zebegna, all those arebegna who made ur Italian masters pee in their pants, will think Emperor’s great great grandson will stay in power. And he was very good at staying in power too. Gojjam rise crushed, Boranaa rise crushed, Tigre rise crushed, the student rise crushed (thou he was gentle with them, unlike you or Derg), his best troops bodyguard rise, he use the army crashed them.

      But guess what, they all rose as a single person in 1974. The students refuse to go to school, the teacher refuse to teach, the farmers refuse to pay tax, the taxi refuse to pick up customers, the army rise as a single block. He became a lion without teeth. He even turned against his own ministers in hope of working with Derg, but it was too late. He could have reformed and saved himself and the country.

      If it did not work for him sitting in his own land Shewa, how you expect it to work for you so far away from your home base? You have no clue, do you? And you are the most hated ever to be in power in EthioSerf,

      Therefore, stop piling your trash and warm up your helicopter, your time is almost up. The rug is being pulled from under your feet.

      • Shewarega

        the question do u have replacement for TPLF ? IF U removed them without replacement u r creating power vacuum, if u create power vacuum then air {anarchy }rush in

        scavenging bird of prey. OLF, ONLF and other watching u ..

        i am 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000% sure u will not answer this question so i don’t take you seriously… u must be an Eritrea who want anarchy in Ethiopia

        • Qomaxxaa occupier,

          I have yet to receive the correct translation from Ancient Somali, lol but I will answer based on what I understood so far. It is interesting you said replacement to TPLF, by that slip of the tongue you have verified there is no EPRDF, it’s all a fake mirage.

          You want to know a replacement for TPLF? The reply is not what Shewarega wants, rather what the overwhelming majority of the Ethiopian people elect. The only time in 3,000 years that was tried a couple of weeks in the middle of 2005. Not in the goodness of your heart, rather your creator/donors were breathing down your neck, and that erkus banda (may he rott in hell) actually believed he could win LOL. The Ethiopian people quietly stood for hours voted and threw you out of office. You had to stop the count and rig the election, you threw tens of thousands in jail, you murdered thousands. We will never forget Tesfaye Adane Biftu, bright star just 26 years old, he was elected by the people of Arsi Nagalae got 88% of the vote. You cut open his stomach murdered him, one of the thousands that paid the ultimate price. But my dear, like the Emperor, Gondar rise you crash it, Gojjam rise you crash it, Ogaden rise you crash it, Wallaga Hararghe rise you crash it, you murder Gambella and Sidama. But in the end they will all rise like a single person. When that happens, what are you going to do? And please stop this bull shit OLF ONLF boogie man. You can get the most extremist member of OLF never ever he want to occupy Gondar or Keffa, same for ONLF never want to occupy Wello or Tigre. They only want equality regional autonomy. Same with the Eritrean, they left with their land did not take one inch from Wello, Gondar, Awusaa, or Tigre. You are the only regional group that want to seceed and rule others at the same time. But it will back fire big big big, you will see.

          • Shewarega,

            when i ask u who is going to replacement for TPLF?

            u replied

            {The reply is not what Shewarega wants, rather what the overwhelming majority of the Ethiopian people elect. }

            if u dont know who ur candidate is how in hell Ethiopian people going to vote.. do u know how long it going to take to conduct election it might take two years ..

            i agree with u. OLF and ONLF. only want equality regional autonomy. This means r u allowed them to count their region vote or r u going to send Dr.birr people to count the oromo vote.. by the way what do u mean oromo only want autonomy are u going to allow them to keep Ethic Fed. or what kind of autonomy r we talking

            i also agree with u oromo doesn’t want to control other region the question is Amhara and Tplf is the one who want to control other region so if u remove TPLF are u saying Amhara stay in their own region and govern their own region and allowed the oromo to govern their own region is that what u r saying to me?

          • Qomaxxa,
            There you go again, ethnic ethnic ethnic, you are such a little man incapable of thinking outside the box.

            Did I say I don’t have a candidate? Or are you incapable of reading at all? I admitted that I am just one person, something you are totally incapable admitting because you want to impose your thought on others. I said I abide by the will of the majority, can you accept that? Or you want to murder the people and keep imposing your will? Like wusha Tadese Mesert said in 2005, “chefchefenachew agerachen enegebalen”. Men Hager Alewuna, gonbes bilu dengay kkeneaa bilu semay.

            I will vote for the right candidate when the time comes. Plenty out there, all in jail or exile now. But I know ur Koshasha mind. If I say Marara you call me narrow nationalist, I say Eskinder Nega, you call me neftegna, I say Seeye you call me kehadi. But I am one person and I will vote as such.

            As for ethnic region etc, again it’s up to the people. For me I am a Shewan, and as such will defend the right of 20 million Shewans, overwhelming majority mixed, to live together. But if the people say otherwise I will yield, I will not murder and arrest tens of thousands like you do, so so far away from your home.

          • Shewarega

            why did u forget Dr.birr the owner of AGE77.. DO u think he will give up power for marararar gadadada and Esinder

            How about OLF Leader Dawud Ibsa Ayana
            how about ODF leader Lencho Bati
            HOW about ONLF leader Abdirahman Mahdi,
            how about OMN owner Jawar Mohammed

            i know u r choosing the moderate but the above have army and they have experience of leading a party they will not step aside because u like mararar over them … i dont even think they will accept the result of the vote unless they count the vote themsleves…

            okay forget everything let assume the candidate r maraarrarra and Esinder my question is u which u will not tell is who is going to count the vote in oromia …do u allowed the oromo to count the vote … i think counting the vote will be next to impossible task … i know u will tell me u will have election board… who is going to trust those election board … i dont think u will condct all this without having a running government to sort out all this u might need two years who is going to govern in main time.. Dr. birr or Dr Dawud do u think once they have power for two year they going to give up power and have manage to organised their own army for last two years. i know deep deep inside u know u r taking risk but u dont care if Ethiopia become Syria u r at safe distance .. the Ethiopia people have no plan B. if their plan A replacing TPLF doesnt work .. they become singpoor Eritrea because if u had been Smart u would have learn from Eritrea and kept ur peace and fight peacefully

          • Shewarega,

            I am sure now you understand why I stopped responding to this little person. He wants to be the referee, a player in both teams, a spectator, everything. Understanding how His little ethnically infested mind sees things helps how illiteracy is our worst enemy. TPLF leaders inslaved him and the other illiterate Tegadalays by making them see things only interms of ethnicity. For them what is a free democratic Ethiopian if it is not ruled by people from their tribe. They prefer to be voluntary slaves to few from their tribe instead of a country that guarantees equal rights for all its citizens. Isn’t it funny how he wants you to cast your vote now? He is running his own election comitee on nazret like the fake one his masters have back home 🙂 🙂 🙂

          • I hear you loud and clear, but it’s ok he will be dissected, exposed, and discredited. I feel sorry for him, he has no clue where he is heading.

          • Kikikikikikiki Dr Birr, you probably scream his name while you are sleeping. But don’t worry, for me he is just one out of many. I only have one neftegna vote and probably it will be cast for Bekele Gerba, because he does not hate like you. But that is just one out of millions.

            Again, it’s very interesting how you list all of these Oromo brothers to wedge a gap among Ethiopians. The whites have a term for that “STOCKHOLM SYNDROME”, the hostage taker becomes the savior. Let alone Dawud or Jawar, I will take AL Shabab over you. You are not even human, a pile of trash. You have no clue what Oromo mean. Let me tell you one story. It was a year or so after the Emperor was overthrown, my dad uncles killed by Derg, all our property taken, I was about ten, and we went to Bishoftu because an acquaintance has died. After the internment me my mom my brother driving were returning to Addis. It was almost lunch time, my mom suggest we stop have lunch at a place we knew well. It was a market day thousands of farmers were streaming into town to sell their goods. All of a sudden we came across farmers who lived on my mom’s land in Boreraa. She shouted to my brother to stop the car. The land was taken the relationship severed, yet it was amazing how they reacted they swarm around the car, kissing my mom, she asking about their families etc. I am an Addis dummy did not understand the conversation as it was mostly in Oromiffaa. At the end they all left, but one old man Ato Tessema Nagawo stayed, he just could not leave her. The way he spoke a mountain of calmness and decency it was amazing. Then he finally uttered in Amharic “anchi le mehonu endet nesh” (knowing well her husband killed her property confiscated). She replied “Ato Tessema men ebakwo yaw cheger new” Notice she called him ersewo, he anchi, he knew her from childhood. He pose for a moment dug deep in his chest pocket pulled out a pile of cash, probably from grain he just sold at the market, counted some and gave to her. Derg was telling them to kill the land owners, but they knew better, because unlike you they are human.

            Noone will listen to your erkus Oromo boogie man fiction. Plus who the hell are you to sit in judgement about other people’s character. All we say, you are far far from your home collect your stuff and hit the road.

            HIT THE ROAD JACK, AND DON’T YOU COME BACK NO MORE NO MORE NO MORE

            HIT THE ROAD JACK AND DON’T YOU COME BACK NO MORE AHAAAAA NO MORE AHAAAAA DONT YOU COME BACK NO MORE LOL

          • Shewarega,

            that is touchy story… but i dont get ur point r u try to tell me people get alone in Ethiopia ? they why r u showing all this hate to the golden race? if that the case

            based on your story that land tenant because of Derg he managed to give alms to the former land owner … did u ask the land tenant if he want to vote to the old system where he will be a land tenant not the land owner ? i dont think he will vote for that rotten system

            Derg give them back their labour .. MELES give them back their freedom.. i dont think the children of those farmer want to be land tenant for your mother.. how lovely ur mother might be…

            in fact to suggest since ur mother is nice to those oromo land tenant.. u think the system is okay.. in the first place how in hell ur father got the land in oromia ? did he bought it or did he got it as gift from king haile for conquering and call them by name G.

            u like it or not the question is not about the past it is about the future…

            A. who is going to count the vote…does the oromo count their own vote, while the Amhara count their own vote.. how this going to work tell us the wise one..

            yes , u told us even devil himself is better then TPLF, i am not arguing that what i am arguing is we need a system for next 100 years. so we have to lay down the rule and regulation the next generation follow so what is going to be who is counting the vote.

            in America each state count their own vote.. so can we follow the something or r we going to try to cheat .. the oromo by counting their vote…tell us wise one.

            second does the oromo have their own Afan oromia? flag and govern their own region how it going to work…

            again u cant tell us dont worry about it .. we have to know what we buying

            this is how democracy work u list what u going to do if u got elected then if the people like ur idea they will sign a contract with u by voting for u… and if u did not accomplished out u set out to do then they will hold u responsible and they kick u out… but if u told them dont worry just vote for me … then they cant hold u responsible because u did nt tel them anything this is like signing a blank contract letter.. guess what nothing come good out of signing blank contract

            Newera, WORRIED about u not answering my question correctly and advice u not to reply … but u did good job handling yourself ..keep the good job … and i hope u will shine answering this question too.. so try ur best ..

          • Qomaxxa occupier,

            I am so glad you liked my story, the problem is you have no story to tell, but cleaning toilets and begging in Asmara. Sele egezitini Mariami, sele Abuna Aragawi. And they take a dried hambasha from their dogs mouth and throw towards you.

            Why you constantly put words into other people’s mouth? Did I say my dad owned the land? Or my mom owned it? She inherit from her grandfather Fido Butaa. Its very funny its a crime for her to inherit 80 hectares of land from the local chief, while you wheel a monstrous racist ethnic militia occupy all of Ethiopia and steal or sell millions of hectares of land, displacing hundreds of thousands. My dear, the injustice of land distribution during Imperial time I know very well. But at least the farmers were not massively displaced as you are doing now. They give a third of the crop to the land owners and they stay. And the question of the day from the students was land to the tiller. That is yet to be answered. And since you are a liar, you made it look Derg answer that question. All he did was make the land state owned. But again he did not displace farmers like you. The whole reason I told that story to explain the kindness of Oromo people. To witness what I saw with my own eyes. But as the master manipulator you twist and turn everything. The question is who are you to sit in judgement of anything, it has not a thing to do with you, far away from your home?

            The part about who will count the vote really brought a smile to my face. Like you plan to relinquish power to the victor, LOL. My dear you have a major hearing problem. Derg brutalized the Ethiopian people, in ways it was never seen in the country’s history. For the first time, hundreds of thousands left. There was a great chance for a new beginning, addressing past injustice and charting a new just and long lasting direction. But as I told you many times, you are an extreme of the minority, you came with unbelievable hate, yet you ask why others hate you. They are just barely holding a mirror to your ugly face.
            You don’t even consider yourself Ethiopian, for you Ethiopia is “mama Ethiopia” only if you have power, steal at will, and impose your divisive disgusting Tehadiso barbarism. The day you loose power your Ethiopian citizenship vanish. Because you are a mafia group with no culture, no sense of history, no fear of God, and an unbelievable hatred toward others, esp those who dare challenge your occupation. But one thing is guaranteed, the clock is ticking, the Ethiopian people will take their God given right back into their hands. Guaranteed as night and day.

            Please leave Newera out of it, you can die ten times and created again you can’t be 1% of him. By the simple fact how he reach out to those who bad mouth him, he has showed his ability to change/ improve, something you are totally incapable.

          • Shewarega

            i love ur mother, she is one smart woman… empty pride didnt stop her from accepting help from her former slave.

            i dont want to go back to the past i will ur mama alone she is lovely woman

            what is important is the future… Ethiopia doesn’t need primitive farming or farmer all primitive farmer must be stopped and replaced by modern farming

            as of now we have 90 million primitive farmers and they cant feed 10 million people let alone feeding themselves so number of farmer is not important the quality is

            to day farming is computerised and high tech it is not ur father time farming u farm with two oxen we r talking about genetic engineering and DNA u r talking about oxen … stop.. what we need is 4000 mega modern farmer then 90 million primitive farmer

            u said u mama have 80 hector of land .. if that farmer stop farming and become hen producer all he need is one hector of land that means he is wasting 79 hectors of land other farmer could have used besides if that farmer had ten kids that farm already reduced to 8 hector per child how long are we going to keep going this way … the best way is to transferred the farmer in to agro industry age where they get job in industry and make more money without breaking their back the rest u open up education and u teach them then they can be anything they want to be Doctor or even farmer they will be highly educated to be even a farmer …

            when u farm primitive way u going to destroy the land because u dont know about errors ion and u putting fertiliser and other chemical without knowing the effect … to me it is a dying occupation should be replaced by modernity .

            u call it displacement i call it grown pain … those displaced people going to get school, hospital drinking water and job in the mega farming industry what more do u want .. u want to die working the land primitive way or pay the price and grow ur economy and transformed to modern society…

            another important thing if the old way was good those farmers would have improved their economy for the last 40 years when the land was with their hand.. if u allowed them to keep the land for next 59 year it will be the same poverty but we need a change that is the price we r willing to pay..

            saying that let me ask u one question if u have to move 10,000 farmers from their land to build Meles Hydro or Nile dam would u move or displace the farmer to build Meles Dam or u will say we cant move those former and u will not build Nile hydro dam.. forget everything pls answer this one…

            guess what i notice also u did not answer who is counting the vote…u dodge the question as if TPLF going to leave power.. we r talking about after tplf LEFT the power who is counting the vote… as of now TPLF is the one who counting the vote and they win 100% so who is going to count the vote… i am laughing no one answer this question…

            about GOLDEN RACE not being Ethiopia if they lose power.. that is the fact.. if Ethiopia is not the same if they r ruled by Amhara apartheid government why u want the golden race to live under Amhara apartheid today Ethiopia is not the same as the old Ethiopia today Ethiopia is democratic Ethiopia and Fed government system .. if u go back to the Amhara central system why do u want anyone want to associate with u…

            as of now even Eritrea want to join Ethiopia already Djibouti is in the bag and Kenya and all Easter nation are at the door… why because Ethiopia is democratic nation not one party nation and centralised government Nation… i can even sense ur Amhara supremacy attitude that cost us Eritrea

          • Everybody knows you are living on a different stratosphere. Like an ostrich your head stuck in the sand. I know life is very good for you at the expense of millions of others. Of course it is Sooooo good for them why they are sinking in the Mediterranean, being slave to Arabs. By the way let me teach you since you always prefer to speak before listening. “After TPLF leave power who is counting the vote.” The vote is counted before the incumbent leaves not after. Got it, everything you say back fire, clearly showing you have no intention honoring the will of the people. You came by force, you stay by force, and in the end you will be removed by a massive upheaval of the people by force. Til then stretch your nostril, pile up your trash, vomit your hate like Gadafi. But once the clock strike mid night, the people say no its all over. Let alone you beggar to the West and China, 100 billion dollar in his bank did not save him.

    • ash,

      I want to clarify a few things with you before I conclude our session.
      1) I used the daughter of Mussolini to show you or anyone that I don’t care who does it to go in there and open a factory. I don’t care if she is 110 yr old. Since it is an indisputable fact that crime was committed on the Ethiopian people Mussolini and his soldier. I think you don’t deny that either. Or do you? Please try yes or no, sir.
      2) I also very aware of the fact that the post WWII government of Italy had agreed to pat reparation money to Ethiopia decades ago in doing so it had played a part in building the dam on Awash River in the early 1960’s. I had seen it myself when those young Italian engineers constructing the electric tower in the vicinity where the Itu clan on my mother’s used to reside. I was there during one of my vacations from the former British Protectorate of Aden. The power line went all the way to Dire Dawa but without giving all the towns any electricity. May be it did not enough juice to provide such service to everyone along the power line. So let’s not dwell too much on this subject.
      3) I don’t watch ESAT for the main reason that their broadcast is mainly in the language I am too challenged. I also heard that their source of fund is hairy. Al-Toweel Isaias and el-Sisi are mentioned in the rumor I heard as their main sponsors. I have no way of verifying that but it has turned me off.
      4) Yes I have read the news about the arrest of high level officials accused of corruption and I had expressed my pleasure about that. That is something to be encouraged and I hope it will continue to be the case. My relatives back in the old country have also told me about that and they are pleased/encouraged just like I am. I will tell you one story a Nigerian gentleman told me back in the mid 1980’s. We met in Hong Kong during one of my business trips. We crossed path while we both were shopping at the fabled Stanley Market. It did not take us too long to strike a conversation. Then we decided to get a bite to eat and had lunch together. We talked about the dismal status of Africa then including both our two countries. He told me how deep rooted corruption had become in his country. He put it in a metaphoric form. He explained how the revenue from the petroleum was scammed away by those who are in the high echelons of the regime or those with strong connection. According to him there were three pipelines. One small one going into the national coffers, one going to the foreign companies that owned the refineries and there was a third invisible(shadowy) pipeline(about at least 30%) goes into lining the deep pockets of government officials and those who had strong affinity with them. Corruption was allowed to spread like an infectious disease that it is ingrained in the psyche of many ordinary citizens there. The news of the arrest from Ethiopia was encouraging to me at least.
      5) The construction of industrial parks is an excellent idea. That will alleviate the burden of spending capital to build such manufacturing facilities by private enterprises. That has worked for Mainland China when the then regime built many such parks in the Special Economic zone in Shenzen area(Guandong region) in the late 1970’s. When my company moved one of its factories there all what we did was anchor our machines and power them. In the matter of 3-4 months all the training was done and I sent the first batch of production samples to the headquarters here in the USA for approval. In 6 months time we started getting shipments by container loads. But if we have to build the factory it would have taken us many more months before we started getting any finished goods. And that saved our company substantial cost. That was why I had praised those engineers for the constructions of the industrial parks at various locations around the country. Now we will see if they are going to be booked to the capacity. That may take a year or more to fill them with factories. Remember companies that rushed to the Special Economic Zones in Southern China first were Hong Kong and Taiwanese companies. Then Japanese followed. Please note the American companies were already there thru their Hong Kong Kong and Taiwanese affiliates. Major American outlets like Walmart and Kmart rushed in and the rest became history, a late 20th century miracle for China. I hope that will be the fortune that awaits the old country. I hope I will hear it from the members of my own Itu clan that there is a factory at the vicinity of that Western Harghe village where I was born with hundreds and possibly thousands flocking to work every day before I take my last breath. It is possible. Transportation should not be an issue once the new railway is up and running.
      So whoever is coordinating the effort he deserves my kudos.
      6) In regards to EffORT, I said it should release its revenue and tax returns. You said no it should not. You said that is a national security and I said it is not. I said it is a publicly owned company and legally the property of the good people of Tigray. You did not confirm or deny that clearly. So we have differences and I strongly believe a healthy one. You have yours and I have mine. Are you with me one this one, young man? So no worries about that!
      Now lets move on to a different topic. My next question is based on what I heard and read many times over the years since the current regime came to power. I heard that it had executed prisoners of war since it took power in 1991. I am not saying those killed in fair fights during battles. I am talking about those who were taken prisoners. I am coming from what I heard in the interview given by one of the former leaders the TPLF and Governor of Tigray. If he was right and truthful, such killing is against the Geneva Convention. That is a crime against humanity. Prisoners of war are helpless, powerless and must be protected as such. I am asking this question because the Embassy here or a government spokesman there did not come out to rebut the claim by that former official. As I mentioned umpteen times before to me human life is the most sacred gift by the Almighty Our Creator. Executing powerless prisoners of war is against the holy scriptures of all religions. And that old country and its glorious people are known for their compassion and magnanimity. One of the behaviors of the late Emperor I admire is the pardons he bestowed upon those Italians still living in the country after the fascists were driven out in 1941. He pardoned those who had to make a living as civil servants during the occupation. But what he did not do on other areas is a different matter. Forgiveness and fair treatment of prisoners is deeply rooted in the values of Oromos, Amharas, Tigrayans and every other ethnic group in that country. That is not our country’s culture. If you are not in the position of answering this question or you are not familiar with the incidence just let me know. I will let you go off the hook on that one. In any case, such crime has no statute of limitation. That demonic Mengistu had killed hundreds of prisoners of war until his last day in office and he should be held accountable as long as he is alive.

      By the way, don’t forget the 5,000M final this coming Saturday. Go Barega!!!

      • Here we go again.

        The above is an excerpts from pro Woyane newspaper Aweramba Times that will be published this Saturday!

        Ittu doesn’t list to ESAT because he doesn’t understand Amharic. Ittu the fake Oromo doesn’t understand Ormifa language on ESAT as well. The hypocrisy of the former Mussolini tour guide is mind boggling.

        • ash aka Agazi Shiftaw Hagos,

          At least ayalew-afagnu knows how to communicate his point, even though he copies and pastes what he wrote a year ago. But, you being a born cooli, don’t what you are talking about. Unlike Ittu and Ayalew, you are a poorly trained Woyane thug. I suspect nepotism when it comes to your job. Woyane thugs will highly benefit if you go back to your original job which pulling a trigger of Ak_47. No wonder that the only good Woyane is a dead Woyane!

          • Damo(Hope) Ginbot-7 Chimp – Easy! Easy! Here is what I asked another Ginbot-7 BANANA:

            “Abebaw: You sound-like the perfect Chameleon for my questions:

            1. You deafen us with: “TPLF is the enemy [TRUE!]. Let’s get rid of it [Ok!]”. Who will take over that stands for Ethiopia? Do you want to plunge Ethiopia in to a 1974-like chaos OR are you paving the way for an EPLF-Ginbot7 take-over [like the 1991 EPLF-TPLF take-over]? What is in it for Ethiopia if Ginbot-7 replaces TPLF?

            2. Aren’t all TPLF, EPLF and Egypt Ethiopia’s enemies? Didn’t Egypt fund-train-arm both the TPLF-EPLF till 1991? Didn’t Eritrea commit War Crimes against Ethiopian POWs [gunning down the army & militia on a runway AND massacring the marines, dousing them with gasoline and setting them on fire]?

            3. Does a collection of Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Puppets stand for Ethiopia or unite Ethiopians? If Ginbot-7 ever usurps power with Egypt’s & Eritrea’s help, how will it serve all 3 masters [Ethiopia, Eritrea and Egypt]?

            4. When the TPLF-EPLF invaded-and-occupied Ethiopia in 1991, Ginbot-7’s leaders helped them set foot & spread their wings. Aren’t ALL criminals? Wasn’t Dr. Birhanu one of Meles’ closest associates. If Meles is a demon, what do you call a demon’s closest associate? Why would anyone support Ginbot-7 OR TPLF?

            5. If Ginbot-7’s leaders turned a blind eye, a deaf ear and played deaf-blind [from 1991-2005] when the regime committed all those crimes & gross human rights violations under their noses, why would I entrust Ginbot-7 to even a penny let alone Ethiopia?

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu/Sew Amagnu)]”

          • Mognu,
            You have been caught with your pants down!!! You are a strong supporter of T-TPLF, period!!! God only knows how much blood socked money you are getting paid to support mass murderers!! You have such a nerve to even murmur the word, let alone say that you are tired and sick of Ethiopians that are complaining about TPLF this…., TPLF that….! You have been trying to minimize the undeniable horrendous bone chilling unprecedented crimes of T-TPLF, and trying to imply that Ethiopians have nothing to be affected, or deeply concerned about T-TPLF lootings, landsellings, tortures, and massacres!!
            I understand some of the things you are saying about EPLF that brainwashed TPLF, OLF, ONLF and that have divided Ethiopians!! But, it is totally shameful for you to accuse individuals like Dr.Berhanu Negga and the likes that have never robbed, sold, given Ethiopia’s land, or kill a single Ethiopian!!! The mass looters T-TPLF that have become multimillionaires and billionaires while millions of Ethiopians are dropping like fall leaves from starvation, and the evildemented organized criminals that have tortured and slaughtered millions of innocent Ethiopians, since 1965 -2017–are in fact worse than the madman bloodthirsty-Mengestu and the other madman the bloodsucker-fascist-Mussolini!! Yesterday was the anniversary of the 50 young Ethiopians that were massacred in Bahardar by the despicable killer Agazi dogs! It is an insult to the grief stricken Ethiopian parents to compare their children’s killer Woyanes with the freedom fighters that never hurt, tortured or killed a soul!!

          • Greetings, Ginbot-7’s Parrot Chimp [Damo/Hope]: We used to gang-up & pick on a funny Wolloyé who used to scan the room before he enters, looks at us and says: “አ – ጀ – ብ ነዉ!” [with Wollo accent]. So, we switched to “ ‘አ – ጀ – ብ ነዉ!’ አለ እንድሪስ ወሎዬዉ!” as our routine exclamation!

            Also, when white cops went gunning down black men in one city after another, a Georgia Congressman said: “It is open season [Hunting Season] on Black Men in America!”

            So, it is Ginbot-7’s Parrot’s open season on Ayalew Mognu/Sew Amagnu! “አ-ጀ-ብ ነዉ!” አለ እንድሪስ ወሎዬዉ! I see that you Ginbot-7’s Parrot Chimps are competing to impress Dr. Birhanu to replace Ginbot-7’s Minister of Information [Samrawit Sisay] who went AWOL. Look, I can recommend you to Dr. Birhanu for the post [to get rid of you!].

          • ayalew_mongu

            There is absolutely nothing you can do to stop G7. If you post your garbage on Tigraye online, you will get positive feedback since the Woyane thugs know that you are one of them. On nazret you may get one or two thugs. G7 is alive and kicking a** while depressed toothless dogs like you barks here 24 hours a day. Bark on toothless dog .

          • it that the case say good bye to mama Ethiopia they going to divide Ethiopia alone their ethnic line… be honest do u think OLF will be okay with Amhara rule after they tested freedom under TPLF.. DO U think AG7 owner dr.birr will ban afarn oromia and force oromo to learn Amhric

            THEN again that is what u wanted Dr. Doma head

      • Ittu Aba Farda

        can u believe that u getting 2 dislike vote…

        i want to keep on teaching this kids in sea of hate i love our discussion it might teach a thing or two to those hope, doma and Shewarega

        Ittu Aba Farda

        u and me r cut from a different cloth. we have totally different out look even so we agree in economy therefore as u said i will respect ur view and hope u respect my view…

        i cant answer the Mussolini question the file is closed.. because ቀዳማዊ ኃይለ ሥላሴ pardon the Italy …

        about EFFORT, I said u only investigate their book if they losing money not when they making money… the arrangement and the formula working why messing up with recipes that work magic …. i understand what u mean u want to cool down the public hunger by opening up EFFORT book.. then u creating majority dictatorship

        u cant open the EFFORT book just because the majority say so… then we r living in Tyranny of the majority

        About corruption it is an economical question … it is very specialised economy question only a professional economy came up with answer u cant leave it for the public of course the public will be happy when the high official who harass them arrested but is that the solution? let dig deep

        let take America war on Drug did they succeeded i dont think so … then why r we thinking we can win over corruption by arresting everyone …

        u told us u discussed with Nigerian friend about corruption in Nigeria… u only discussed the problem not the solution the solution is not replacing one full stomach hyena with hungry hyena … if u replace those 37 high official with another 37 official u getting hungry hyena instead of half full stomach hyena so what is the improvement

        so what is the solution the solution is very simple…

        first study the root cause of corruption .. and u will find a solution not 100% but almost perfect with 3% error

        now let go back to America how they fighting back .. they fighting back drug problem by legalising weed … legalising prostitute almost end the criminal side of it if u legalise it u can tax it u can regulate it even u can make the weed safe ..

        in Nigerian case they have several head of state but all of them where corrupted so changing one with other doesn’t help …if u understand this simple fact then we can one step closer answering the corruption question

        here r few missstep

        A. arresting corrupted official or even killing them doesn’t work
        B. changing one corrupted official with more corrupted official also doesn’t work..

        trust me if TPLF all about corruption we will not have government all of them would be arrested .. they use anti corruption as political tools to arrest their opponents and revenge … if u see those 37 arrested i dont think there if Tigray official while Tigray ethnic occupied government 98% how come almost all of the 37 official are none Tigray ethnicity this by it self is red flag for me…

        so here is my solution for Nigerian oil theft… Nigerian produce let say 100 billion dollar oil … out of it if we give Nigerian head of state 10% this 100 billion fortune we still have 90 billion so if we tall our leader if u make the oil income to 200 billion dollar we give u 20billion dollar then the leader work to ward this goal he will not have time to be corrupted…

        now u might think Nigerian have no money to give 20 billion to one man.. u like it or not he is take in it.. why not give it to him openly instead force him to steal… beside that 20 billion dollar still will be in Nigerian as whole the Nigerian economy still have 100 billion nothing taken but if u refused to give him up front then the money will be seating in Swiss bank far away from Nigeria…

        Nigerian leader knows once they lose power they would be arrested even killed so they loot before they lose power…

        do u understand my point

        Ethiopian people did not say any thing when 60 ministers killed in cold blood by mengistu haile mariam in fact they said they deserve it… the killing did not stop million poor people killed had they spoken at that time they would have stopped Derg but they did not so the public also responsible what kind of leader they getting..

        u can check my theory right now ask HOPE, DOMA, they will tell u they will personally kill all TPLF official if they have power and they will tell u they have no mercy for any TPLF official … then why r u asking the TPLF to have mercy on the public if they know if they lose power they will be killed like dog.. they will keep the power until they die.. is that not what happened to gaddafi and saddam hussein we can argue until the cow come why this happened u might think if Gaddafi were nice to people he will not be killed like that .. but the people were not nice to him… they were not nice to any one in power in Egypt they arrested their democratically elected leader ///

        look in America Trump is republican but he doesn’t arrest Obama … in Nigria dictatorship of Sani Abacha (1993–1998),arrested Olusegun Obasanjo

        so do we have what it take to respect our former leader ?

        for example can we give pardon to mengistu haile mariam

        not because we r generousness but it is due to to him

        mengistu haile mariam make a deal with AMERICA and TPLF/ EPLF to leave power at that time the file closed we cant go back and arrest him or persecute him why because we make a deal and Mengistu saved million of life by leaving power peacefully … now u dont have to imagine what would have happened had Mengistu stayed and fight until one man remain it would be another Syria, Iraq, and Libya in way he did a great favour for us when help left Ethiopia … even so i want him killed and majority of Ethiopian wanted him killed it is not a majority rule .. it is constitutional rule the law said he make a deal at that time his fail closed forever

        if Italy forgive Ms. Alessandra Mussolin and make her Italy politician i think we should do the same and pardon Mengistu and King Haile family and allowed them even to come home

        i think Mengisu and his family should earn 10% from Mugher Cement Factory

        and King haile family also earn 10% of EAL profit … the % can be negotiated the point is to make sure we take care of our former leaders and if TPLF did this next leader also take care of them so we will have peaceful transform of power …

        i also heard about king Haile son or grandson try to get back one hotel and TPLF ask him to buy it back.. i say sale for him for one birr… we have to have leader continuity

        about athlete i will watch it as i said we r not cut from the same cloth … i am not happy when they win … i am all about risk management.. when they win everything is okay we dont have to worry but how about if they did not win that is where i come in… those athlete r very young they need plan B. if someone doesn’t have plan B…

        this is like skydiver with only one parachute… if he landed safely we all happy for him.. but not me .. i dont care he jump 1ooo time before if he have no second parachute i am not happy even so he landed safely because i know it would be matter of when … when his first parachute didnot work u will die the same way those athlete need plan B.. for example scholarship in American collage where they can study and run at the same time…i give so many way they can maximised their win …

        as always i respect ur view to enjoy the athlete and i will also enjoy the run but i know all we have is hope.. .. hope they win…

        AFTER WIN i am expecting ur analysis i am telling u could be good sport analysis i really enjoy reading ur blog ..

        i am closing this blog by saying my deepest respect to teacher Al mariam for writing unbroken blog for ten years.. i hope nazret.com come out and clear the air what happened to our beloved teacher

        • one more thing Ittu Aba Farda

          u ask me about former TPLF member accusing TPLF killing war prisoners…

          some time it is hard to believe anyone.. for sure this so called Former TPLF member make himself innocent .. he might even claim he didnt kill anyone then how in hell u believe him ,,,if he was part of the killing then he must play some part otherwise he was standing and watching while other killing .. how this thing work … i would have believed him more if he said i also killed and i want forgiveness or if any thing coming to me i am willing to accept my punishment then he might have a point..

          second he have to give us hard evidence where the body thrown or mass grave… when Edward Snowden run away he took file to prove his claim what did this former TPLF member have did he have any evidence did he collected any incriminated file or he this telling us based on{ trust me man }slogan

          funny all of former TPLF member always claim they were innocent

          • ash,

            You have noticed that there are those who just does not like anything I write. My problem with them started when I began exposing the evil scheme of Al-Toweel Isaias. They don’t want anyone to say anything bad about him. There are two kinds of such people who are always angry at me. There are those who are members or supporters of those shameful groups who are scavenging at the stinking dump sites in Asmara, Cairo and some Wahhabi joints. The other groups of haters are Al-Toweel Isaias’ operatives themselves. They are dreaming and want the old country go up in flames. There is one trait they both share. They think Oromos do not have independent thinkers. They think Oromos are created to follow others like the murderer Isaias and stoop down like ‘house niggers’ to el-Sisi and the Wahhabis. They think I am a ‘Hagos, Goitom’ and other specific types. They believe people like Hagos and Goitom are all evil and even always sub-humans. The bigotry that is gripping them is beyond the pale. For that reason they are not Ethiopians, the products of those glorious people in my book. They use filthy terms in addressing me and others who differ from them in opinions. I used to think that they are acting in such rude manner just may be they are mad but that is not the case. They are like that. They are brought up that way. As far as I know that is not the value of the common man/woman from the old country. They are ‘balegas, balegas, balegas’. They depict ‘Hagos’ as a subhuman, someone always to be hated and demonized. They believe Oromos were, are and will never be able to articulate what is in their mind. That is because the only Oromos they really know of those like Ibsa and a few despicable Oromos who they see shoe shining Isaias’ stinking boots everyday. That is all they see and know about Oromos. But they know diddly squat about my people. What bigots!!! What racists!!!! Sad, very, very sad indeed.

            Hey young man, don’t forget to watch the 5,000m final tomorrow. Go Barega! Go!!!!

            And take care!!!

          • Ittu aka Goitom,

            I wish you adress you vile directly to us instead of using a mercenary Woyane thug to make a point. On my part , I have no problem with your opinion regarding opposition groups or Eritreans who are supporting them. You can bash them all day long. We know who you are and your opinion against those who are opposing Woyane mass murderers doesn’t surprise us.

            I will always have a problem with those who support mass murderer Woyane thugs. You never utter a word against those wonbede Shiftas who are killing everyone including the Oromo tribe you claim to be coming from. It is very strange. A normal human being who claims to be an Oromo doesn’t beat a drum for mass murderers when his own people are being gunned down every day. I am not an Oromo and vehemently oppose those mass killers. You claim to be an Oromo and you are the first to applaud a fake news which comes out of the TPLF camp. Don’t use Oromos because you ain’t Oromo!!

            The names Goitm or Hagos are not evil or related to aub-human. They are used to tell readers from where you come from. I also use those names to demonize those Woyane Tigres who are killing our people. If you have a problem with that, so be it. You have lived your life. It would be great if you leave something positive to the young generations whose life being destroyed by lice infested Woyane thugs.

          • ash,

            But whoever did that killing, it was a crime against humanity and it was committed on prisoners under the custody of the current regime, EPRDF. I heard that one of the former leaders of EPRDF and once the Prime Minister is here among us. He should have known about it. I also heard that he had an ax to grind with those prisoners. I hope someone will press him about it because it is a serious problem against all international laws and also against what is deeply embedded in out merciful culture. You see. I think there should be a process of reconciliation on all sides. TPLF, EPRP, MEISON, OLF, ONLF and some other groups had committed atrocities of some sort. If reconciliation is the order of the day, every one of them should step on up and ask for forgiveness. Some people may take my suggestion as too naive and even worse some of them may find it anti this and anti that. That does not surprise me because I know all these are still under the steel grip of old timers and as stubborn as unbroken mule. They are still boxed and entrenched in their ‘old time religion’ of the 1960’s and 70’s. But the glorious people of the old country will bury them and their successors will come out to be harmonious and peace pushers.

          • ash,

            By the way, did you just watch the 5000m final? If you didn’t, you missed the action, man. The young man I was rooting for ‘Barega’ kind of waned during the last 100 yards. But I can see they played classic competition. How about that lion Idris? I know what happened? The late heroes Yifter the Shifter and Biklila had turned on the twin turbos on his legs, man!!! I was like ‘go get’em tiger! get’em tiger! get’em, get’em!!! Ladies and gentlemen!!! Bikila is incarnated!!!! Yifter the Shifter has been awakened just for this occasion. Those two naughty rascals!!! I could see them stepping on the accelerator and sprint with this young man like a pissed off cheetah to the finish!!!! I am good now!!!! I have calmed down now!!!! My old heart is back to normal with its beats. But that 17yr old kid will still be a force to reckon with in the coming years. I hope this heroic loss will not take a toll on his morale. He lost this race just only by less than 3 seconds. I was also looking for that neighbor, Kifle from Eritrea too. He was only 4 seconds behind. It was a fight to the finish. What a tactic by the three lions!!! What a strategic race by the three countrymen!!! I am fixed now with gushing joy for the rest of the week, man. I am good now!!!! Also hats off to the hero of all us Mo Farah!!! He put up a gallant fight to the finish. See you in the marathons!!!
            Now every one of you must watch the women 5,000m final tomorrow! You hear me? This is an order from this fanatic Afro-centric septuagenarian!!! There should not be any excuse except for those of you who must work tomorrow afternoon. It won’t be on cable or sat. It will be broadcasted on the air channel of NBC between after 12, 1, 2, 3PM eastern, central, mountain and pacific times respectively!!! You will be rewarded with Ayana when she destroys the entire field once again. She will have two very angry cheetahs assisting her too. Derertu, Gete, Fatuma and the entire pride of lionesses of the Dibaba siblings will descend upon the field also stepping on the accelerator on Ayana, man. You watch!!!!
            Just in case I have 911 on a speed dial, man!!! Let’s go!!!!!

          What is that long monologue? Are you taking online classes on nazret? It looks like a term paper on EFFORT to me. Are you working for your masters degree? How about Ittu teaching Woyane thugs an online course?

  33. For the likes of Ittu, Ayalew, Ali, Belachew…..
    You can’t say stake when a hostess asks you Fish or chicken. Our choice is between TPLF and the oppositions which we keep blaming. Let us not play it safe and compare people who do practical real world work with ideas and ideals. To appreciate the people who we judge from far, let us look our situations. The maximum we can contribute to liberate our country from the enemy we all agree is scribble comments on websites under aliases. We are free to come and go to Ethiopia while the people we judge are dead, in prison or they are not allowed to see their birth place as long as TPLF is in power. Not to forget the other sacrifice them and their families paid so far. Nobody asked you to support any opposition, just understand we (the stay in a safe place and scribble comments on websites people) have no moral right to blame anyone who is willing more than we do. Sometimes i feel like we are barking loud here to compensate how helpless and useless we are. Let us be real, we are nothing as compared to these people who risked and risking a lot. Please don’t consider this as an insult. I put my self first inline. So if you think it is an insult, I am insulting myself too.

    • newera

      u cant compere fish with chicken because both of them r not the same

      if the hostess ask u apple or orange if u pick orange and if ITTU pick apple he is not wrong or u r not wrong both of u r right

      but if the hostess ask u do u want Fish or smelly fish then we have the logic right and u can say who ever choice smelly fish is wrong

      now apply to TPLF and AGE77 AND OLD

      AGE77 dr. birr property and OLD (olf )property are worst then TPLF IN Any measure be it in democracy, be it in freedom of speech… this people live in USA for last 49 years and they acting primitive u want them to come to power

      there r million youtube feed that can watch how the anti Ethiopian behave

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikYqpoEaHp0

      watch this video and tell me how this people are more Democrat then TPLF DONT WASTE ittu time .. he is discussion intelligent topic with me … i wan u to be part of the solution and join our discussion instead of being part of the problem then again u r an Eritrean

    • Dear Newera,

      I thought you and I have gone a few rounds regarding the affairs of the old country and have reached amicable conclusion. I wholeheartedly respect your rights to your opinion and you do likewise. I don’t take your opinion being different from mine as an insult. In my book you are entitled to your statements of opinion and that must enshrined as an Almighty Our Creator given rights and human beings should not touch it. I believe you are from the same school of thoughts on this one. What I take as insult is literally just that. I wish you and I have the opportunity to duke it out debating our opinions in a civil manner on an open public platform there in the old country. But due to a despotic governance in place there now that may not happen soon enough. Please rest assured that I am always open for civil discussion devoid of insults and I never took differing opinions as insults.

      Just to share some exiting with you. Make sure you watch the 5,000m final tomorrow. That 17 yr old kid from the old country was very impressive during the semi final. Just to share something exiting with you. I hope you don’t mind.

      • We did amicable conclusions, I respect your opinion too. I mentioned your name to point out my disagreement about your positions on oppositions that chose armed struggle. Currently the only option we have is here to have civil debate, so let us continue the debate. Hopefully in the near future we may have open debate back home.

        I don’t mind you sharing something exiting at all. Thank you for sharing and glory to our Athletes.

        • Newera,

          If that kid wins tomorrow I am going to hold a barbecue in my backyard on Sunday and that will be an excuse to invite my home grown American neighbors over. I tell you I have been bragging about how our golden daughter Almaz destroyed the field in the 10,000 final last week to him so many times that he may end up having a hearing loss. I have been watching the video clip so many times that I myself may end up having a blurred vision. He is a good man and his entire family members are good people. I have been telling them stories of our past heroes like the late Abebe Bikila, Mamo Wolde, Yifter the Shifter and the still alive Haile, Fatuma, Derertu, the Dibaba brood and Kenenisa. They already knew about Bikila and how ran to victory bare feet. I think I have the bragging rights. Don’t you think? Let’s have this 17 yr old kid, Barega in our prayers. He will have 2 countrymen to help him. I want to see them pull that old Kip Keino’s playbook from the 1968 Olympics 1,500m final. Go Barega, go!!!!! Sorry for my excitement!!!

          • There is another young man from Eritrea also. If Barega and that Eritrean neighbor arrive home one and two, I tell you I am going to be like a kid at a chocolate factory.

          • Please keep bragging and stay exited. 🙂 may be talking about things that unite us is something we should focus more in here. We spent too much on things we don’t agree with and all the negatives. Go our Athletes, go Barega

          • I think it would be incumbent upon the dear editors of websites like Nazret to headline achievements by our glorious athletes so we can enjoy the moment. I am a diehard Afro-centric and fanatically Ethio-centric. I tell you I used to jump up and down when I saw Hussein from Djibouti was at one time leading in the Seoul Olympics in 1988. But that Italian runner and the Kenyan caught up to him. I had it taped on a VHS which I transferred it onto a DVD two years ago. It was a fight to the finish. There was not a single Ethiopian then. I think that demon Mengistu might have boycotted the event, What do I do? I have to cheer for our neighbor. It is my being such an ardent Afro-centric that I do not want to see a single young man dying from senseless fracas. Nuff nagging you now!!!

          • Newera,

            Somehow you stole my thunder. Minutes after the race ended I had sent you a hurrah shoutout about it but it was held for review by the dear editors of the website. You should see me, man. I have been shot into the space and hovering over the moon since then. Idris saved the day, man. The 17yr old kid, it was just too much for his still tender young legs. I was looking for that neighbor of ours, the Eritrean young man too. But Barega should not be disappointed at his first such big gig with giants like Mo and he lost by less than 3 seconds. If he stays healthy I think he will be a tour de force to reckon with in many years to come. Now don’t forget to watch Ayana in the 5,000M final tomorrow. I hope she will destroy the field once again.

          • Turned out to be 2nd place for our gallant daughter Ayana but still what a feat by her!!! The other graceful cheetah from our dear neighbors Kenya was well prepared for this. But still all Hail to Ayana!!! I am good with her result, One gold and one silver? That is a lot of hardware, man. You can’t beat that. To me she has the most graceful stride since Tirunesh and Defar. I am very, very happy!!!

          • Did you just watch the 5000m final? If you didn’t, you missed the action, man. The young man I was rooting for ‘Barega’ kind of waned during the last 100 yards. But I can see they played classic competition. How about that lion Idris? I know what happened? The late heroes Yifeter the Shiter and Biklila had turned the twin turbos on his legs. Ladie and gentlemen!!! Bikila is incarnated!!!! Yifter the Shifter has been awakened just for this occasion. Those two naughty rascals!!! I could see them stepping on the accelerator and sprint with this young man to the finish!!!! I am good now!!!! I have calmed down now!!!! My old heart is back to normal with its beats. But that 17yr old kid will still be a force to reckon with in the coming years. I hope this heroic loss will not take a toll on his morale. He lost this race just by less than 3 seconds. I was also looking for that neighbor, Kifle from Eritrea too. He was only 4 seconds behind. It was a fight to the finish. What a tactic!! What a strategic race by the three countrymen!!! I am fixed with gushing joy for the rest of the week, man. I am good now!!!! Also hats off to the hero of all us Mo Farah!!! He put up a gallant fight to the finish. See you in the marathons!!!

          • No I did not watch live. But another great result by Almaz. We have promising new comers with the almaz and Genzebe. Things are looking up.

    • NewError: You wrote: “You can’t say ‘stake’ when a hostess asks you Fish or chicken. Our choice is between TPLF and the oppositions which we keep blaming…”?

      Here is the simplified version of what I have been trying to relay to Ginbot-7’s Parrots:

      1. The ‘Power Equation’ as it stands now: TPLF + EPLF [Embedded in TPLF] + EPRDF
      2. The ‘Power Equation’ Ginbot-7 proposes: Ginbot-7 + EPLF + Secessionists [OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc].

      My unanswered questions are: How does replacing TPLF & EPRDF with Ginbot-7 & Secessionists solve Ethiopia’s problems? Isn’t the EPLF/Eritrea the only winner in BOTH cases by having a ‘stock’ in BOTH ‘Power Equations’? Since when do the Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based secessionist ethnic liberation fronts have Ethiopia’s interest at heart? When have Egypt & Eritrea ever been Ethiopia’s friends? Is this attacking Dr. Birhanu?

      Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu/Sew Amagnu)]

      • No it is not attacking Dr Birhanu.
        Why would you assume Ginbot 7’s decision to work with EPLF is their first choice? Didn’t this people tried other ways before they start working with EPLF? Why would you fail to understand these pople are making lemonade from the lemon which the current situation of the country presented to them? I will go back and ask from the point 1 and 2 you listed, do you choose 1? My choice is 2 because I heard leaders of Ginbot 7 say all the question you asked including the country’s future relation with Eritrea and the demands of secessionist groups is only determined by Ethiopians post TPLF. In fact that is their precondition to work with any opposition group. Finally I have to be sure, what you are saying is number 1 and number 2 the same so let us keep number 1? False equivalency at it is best.
        What is your proposition? Do nothing? Let us fight both EPLF, TPLF and the oppositions, things will be alright? Continue the uncoordinated peaceful struggle in the country and if that is successful that way EPLF won’t be a winner? Please, what do you think is best way to go forward.

        • Newera,

          u r assuming and wet-dreaming that AGE77 owner Dr.birr will be king and OLF will be accepting subservient (prepared to obey dR.BIRR unquestioningly.)

          What u should answer is first who is going to take power after TPLF, and how about OLF and ONLF ? U will never answer this question u want to hoodwink Ethiopia in to fighting without telling them what would be their faith after TPLF, if u were smart u would have learn from Eritrea, South Sudan and Zimbabwe

        • NewError: 1). I am a Nationalist Ethiopian [rain or shine]! When it comes to Ethiopia, I first ask: Who are Ethiopia’s enemies & friends? What is in Ethiopia’s best interest?

          2). Dr. Birhanu is just saving his own skin! He is NOT in Eritrea to save Ethiopia! The TPLF-EPLF was BAD from Day-1! Did anyone put a gun to his head to tango with the TPLF-EPLF while it lasted [1991-2005]? Wasn’t it business-as-usual for him & his buddies till the TPLF kicked HIM out? Hasn’t he turned a blind eye, a deaf ear and played blind-deaf while the TPLF-EPLF was committing Crimes Against Humanity? Hasn’t he enjoyed all the royal privileges reserved for Woyanes [running his own businesses and all]? Why would I ever entrust him to a penny let alone to Ethiopia?

          3). In our last back-and-forth, you brought up the ‘lesser of two evils’ scenario. ‘Power Equation-1’ & ‘Power Equation-2’ put us in that ‘lesser of two evils’ box. Take ‘Power Equation 2’: Ginbot-7 + EPLF + Secessionists [OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc].

          i). Do I trust Ginbot-7/Dr. Birhanu? NEVER! First, he served the TPLF-EPLF! When TPLF kicked out EPLF, he stayed with the TPLF. When TPLF kicked him out, he went to the EPLF for help! It’s ALL about HIM! There is NOTHING in it for Ethiopia!

          ii). Do I trust the Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based Secessionists Ethnic Liberation fronts [OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc.]? NEVER! For obvious reasons, here is a spoon-full:

          a). Egypt & Eritrea’s ULTIMATE GOAL is the destabilization, disintegration and destruction of Ethiopia! Egypt funded-armed-trained the TPLF-EPLF. It is now doing the same thing with the OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc.

          b). The Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Fronts are just Egypt & Eritrea’s PUPPETS! They are just there to carry-out Egypt & Eritrea’s ULTIMATE GOAL: The Destabilization, Disintegration AND Destruction of Ethiopia.

          c. The OLF-IFLO [with TPLF-EPLF’s blessing] committed the massacre of Amaharas & Christian Oromos in various parts of Ethiopia. The ONLF massacred Ethiopians & over 80 Chinese technicians on natural gas preliminary exploratory work in Ogaden…..

          Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu/Sew Amagnu)]

          • Point well made 🙂 🙂 🙂 . Let us agree with your rumored based analysis. I say rumor based because I am not sure we ill educated Ethiopians do not act the same way if we were Egyptians or Eritreans. This very (for luck of a better word) lame statement that Egypt and Eritrea are out there to destabilize Ethiopia is wrong in my opinion. Because the majority of ill educated people in Egypt and Eritrea think the same way about Ethiopia. This is the point people took power in all three countries use as an excuse to stay in power. You of all people should not fail for that carp. For god sake you are not Ethioash, you make some good argument sometimes. People to people, all the 3 countries want to find equitable solution for their bad relationships for decades. That is why it is important we should solve our internal issue and deal with outsiders in a manner which we all agree up on.

            About the statement you made about Dr. Birhanu. I can say for sure your opinion of him is light years away from the majority of Ethiopians. Because in 2005, Ethiopians elected him and his party in landslide. The fact that TPLF kicked him out is enough for me that he is doing something good. Because he is in the line with many people who i admire and kicked out by TPLF like prof Asrat, Prof Merara, Prof Mesfin, Eskender, Birtukan, Andargachew…… Is your issue only with him or you have issue with all the people i listed here? Again are you telling Ethiopians who elected Dr Birhanu and his party in 2005 that they are wrong? It sounds like you made an emotional conclusion first and you go back and try to find a way to rationalize it. Dr Birhanu is one of few Ethiopian opposition leaders we know for sure is legitimately liked by Ethiopians and we have a publicly available fact to prove that. You are on the wrong side on this.

            Finally let me go back to the first line of my comment, let us agree with your rumored based analysis, what is your proposition? Your unwillingness to answer this simple question made many of us think you are proposing to leave TPLF alone.

          • NewError: 1. ‘Election 2005’: Ethiopians were just saying: “Anything BUT Meles/TPLF/EPLF!” That’s it! Had the third candidate been a Donkey, the Donkey would have won! All elections were a FARCE! What made the 2005 extra special?

            2. Prof. Asrat vs. Prof. Birhanu: Where was Prof. Birhanu when Prof. Asrat was rallying the people and leading the march against the TPLF-EPLF’s tyranny & Crimes Against Humanity? Having a drink with Isayas, Meles and Tamrat?

            3. Egypt & Eritrea: My opinions, conclusions and decisions ARE based on facts and I have given you ALL the facts that led me to the opinion, the conclusion and the decision regarding Egypt, Eritrea and their Secessionist Puppets!

            4. You asked: “… what is your proposition? Your unwillingness to answer this simple question…” Don’t play amnesiac with me! I answered that the other day ≈: “I believe that Ethiopians CAN SOLVE their own problems. There are over 20 home-bred, home-grown and home-based ‘parties’. Why not support & strengthen them? Won’t it be insulting the intelligence of Ethiopians to tell them ‘I will form a party for you abroad, ask Egypt & Eritrea for help, train guerrillas in Eritrea and come and liberate you!…’ ”

            5. You & I are two trains on parallel tracks: When Ethiopians were under the tyrannical rule of the TPLF-EPLF & subjected to Crimes Against Humanity, people like you & Prof. Birhanu were praising the TPLF-EPLF Invaders-and-Occupiers saying: “The TPLF-EPLF brought peace, democracy, ethnic/religious equality, economic prosperity, etc.”

            But, I and some students [not affiliated with the Derg, the Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based secessionists, etc.] were flooding the fax machines & e-mail boxes of North America’s law makers with letters of protest highlighting the Invasion-and-Occupation of Ethiopia, the Crimes Against Humanity and the tyrannical rule of the TPLF-EPLF!

            6. Ethiopian Nationalism: I am a Nationalist Ethiopian and whatever names you & others call me, I WILL NOT COMPROMISE ETHIOPIA’S INTERESTS [rain or shine]! It is NOTHING personal: I DON’T KNOW you! I DON’T KNOW Prof. Birhanu either! It is just my nationalistic point of view!

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-Ayalew Mognu / Sew Amagnu]

          • Do the 20 home grown parties have names? Tell us which party is your favorite. I am really trying to understand what you are saying has meat or you are just like the other idiots who hate or love based on tribal bias.
            You may be right the 2005 election is Ethiopians saying no to TPLF but only dr Birhanu and his party gave them an option not lam alegne besemay wetetwan yemalay party.
            Prof asrat was a member of the transition parlament which means he believed on what TPLF was doing when he decided to participate. He gave legitimacy for TPLF by joining that parlament. You don’t see a problem Prof Asrat joining TPLF’s transition parliament but you blame Dr. Birhanu who never participated poplitically with TPLF other than being member of an opposition party? Are you sure this is not Ethnic favoritism? Again if you have evidence that Dr Birhanu joining one of TPLF affiliated parties, let us hear it. Other wise another rumor. I heard like you through rumor that he was friends with Meles or Tamirat, don’t forget they might went to same school or college. So having a drink with them is not a big of a crime at that time. We all were filled with optimism. My admiration for the guy is because he gave TPLF all the benefit of the doubt in their early days. He tried everything within the space they gave him. He beat them peacefully, they denied him. He paid a price for trying peacefully. He is trying through armed struggle leaving his comfortable life and family. In everybody’s book this is a quality of modern day hero. For things to come we judge him as we see his action, let us not get ahead of ourselves.
            You may sent fax to US officials but that is the safest act one can do. I don’t see the difference with what I am doing here. You still did it while hiding. You are safe. Buddy no matter how many times you repeat you are nationalist and you sent fax, I will take people who risking and risked their life over you, no offense. Being nationalist does not give us the excuse to be rigid so we won’t change our strategy to freedom as opportunities present themselves.

            The less we are willing to sacrify the more we should shush about people who are willing to sacrify more than us. Let us not make the lives of people who do the real hard work harder than it is. They are paying a price, if we can not support them, at least let us not bad mouth them.

          • NewError: 1). I am a Nationalist Ethiopian [rain or shine]! When it comes to Ethiopia, I first ask: Who are Ethiopia’s enemies & friends? What is in Ethiopia’s best interest?

            I DON’T support Ginbot-7, TPLF, EPLF and the Egypt-funded & Eritrea-based Secessionist Ethnic liberation fronts [OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc.] since they DON’T stand for Ethiopia!

            2). Dr. Birhanu stood for his own interests. Conflict of interest lead to his fallout with the TPLF. He went to Eritrea to save his own skin. There is NOTHING in it for Ethiopia!

            3. We sent the faxes & e-mails while you were praising the same TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF you demonize now! That’s why we are TRAINS on PARALLEL TRACKS!

            4). I am NOT Dr. Brhanu’s biographer. I DON’T know him! He is in the discussion because he just happened to be the leader/founder of Ginbot-7.

            5). Prof. Asrat: I DON’T KNOW him! I had no clue about the ‘transitional parliament’ let alone Prof. Asrat’s membership. I saw his photos leading anti-TPLF-EPLF marches! That’s all!

            6). Endemic Parties: I read 23 when HMD called them for ‘negotiations’! You had better Google them if you want more info! I don’t have specific info about any in particular!

            Mr. Snake Charmer [X-(Ayalew Mognu/Sew Amagnu]

          • Bud, your arguments are unraveling.
            – you don’t have a single group or party you agree with to say I am with side. You just with you and your ideas.
            – you saw pictures of Prof asrat leading a march and he is your hero but the guy who led to the 2005 defeat of TPLF is a traitor. A little codradicting yourself there. You see what you want to see I guess. Don’t be defensive and say I am not biographer, all you are asked is support your claim with facts. Educated people stay away from emotional and bias based arguments and they base their argument with evidence. Give me evidence to show why you think Dr. Birhanu is self serving. Where is the evidence showing he served TPLF? Why do none you give him the same courtesy for doing hundred folds of the deeds you praised Prof Asrat for. He led marches too. Do you need pictures? I presented you that Prof Asrat Engaged with TPLF during the transition period, does that change your opiopn of him? If not why? Are you being impartial here, then?
            – about Dr Birhanu’s self interest, can we get some evidence? This rumor based hate/love make me question the way you favor people. I don’t think you are being fair to the good Dr and based on what you are writing so far your hate towards him is irrational, may be ethnic based?
            – cudos for sending fax during the early days of TPLF. Again unless I based my view of TPLF purely on ethnicity, I didn’t see anything to send fax at that early stage. Did I Praise them? that is a good one. Yes on some issues, I opposed on some of the issues. I think that was only fair. One of the issues I praised them was freedom of the press. I bought newspapers that depicted Meles as a Satan with a horn during their early days. For the sake of this interesting debate, what was the main reasons that made you send faxes early on (is it as early as 1991?). Please not yebuna lay wore, pure verifiable reasons and evidences. Not this shewa chrstians massacre nonsense. I know they killed protesters on the streets of Addis in 2005, I know they killed protesters in different parts of the country on the recent protests that led to the state of emergency. These are verifiable facts and they also admitted them. I know there are people, even here on nazret, exaggerate and sensationalize killings which can not be verified independently.

          • NewError: Ginbot-7 & Co. don’t stand for Ethiopia! They stand for their own interests!

            1. Who are Ethiopia’s enemies? Egypt, Eritrea & their dogs: TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF, Ginbot-7 [TPLF-EPLF’s former buddies], Secessionist Ethnic Thugs [OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc.], etc.

            Egypt & Eritrea NEVER want a united, strong and prosperous Ethiopia. Egypt & Eritrea’s goal has always been to divide, weaken, disintegrate and destroy Ethiopia!

            2. What is in Ethiopia’s best interest? NOT SUPPORTING ANY OF THEM! They are the same people/organizations who:

            i). helped the TPLF-EPLF take root in Ethiopia, loot, wreak havoc, commit Crimes Against Humanity, etc. They ARE just TPLF-EPLF-EPRDF’s accomplices ‘turned saints’!

            ii). turned a blind eye, a deaf ear and played blind-deaf when Ethiopians were under siege, subjected to Crimes Against Humanity, etc. Yet, they turn around, blame their buddies and EVEN say: “We ARE ‘Patriots’ fighting for Ethiopia!”

            3. What does Ethiopia gain if Ginbot-7 & Co. [EPLF/Eritrea + OLF-IFLO + ONLF + SNLF, etc.] usurp power in Ethiopia with Eritrea’s & Egypt’s help?

            i). Ethiopia gets NOTHING! It will be 1991 ALL OVER AGAIN – Just like the 1991 TPLF-EPLF ‘Orchestra’: EPLF/Eritrea will ride in to Addis followed by Ginbot-7 & Co.

            ii). Then, Ginbot-7 & Co. WILL Present Ethiopia as a gift to Egypt & Eritrea on a Silver Platter! Do Meles, Isayas and Assab ring a bell? Well, it will be a lot worse this time!

            iii). Egypt & Eritrea WILL in turn hand Ethiopia over to their DOGS [the Secessionist Ethnic Liberation Fronts: OLF-IFLO, ONLF, SNLF, etc.]. Voila, Egypt & Eritrea’s Mission Accomplished: divide-and-partition Ethiopia in to the TPLF-EPLF ethnic enclaves CRAFTED IN 1991. Ethiopia No More!

          • @ayalew-mognu

            Listen whatever you like it or not Your so called Ethiopia has long being buried and there’s way in hell your gona bring it back.

            When the TPLF is kicked out we shall conduct a referendum in Ogadenia and if they chose to separate from mainland Ethiopia then theres nothing you can do, do you understand?

          • Ancient Somali
            Mr multiple personality. The so called Ethiopia is long gone? Because you say so? Be adult and tell us what your Ogadenia provide you that a free Ethiopia can not? Is this because you want a country where only your tribe members live? Another question, shouldn’t the referendum to let Ogaden go include the rest of Ethiopians? If Ethiopians determine letting go a geographic location in the current boundary create a problem to them like economic, political, social or others, shouldn’t they have to participate in the referendum you are talking about?

          • @Newera
            What I meant was the Neftegna Ethiopia has being buried, did you not see how we burned the Neftegna flag?

            we the ONLF our goal is simply fight the interests of our people (Ogadenia) and not the unity of Ethiopia, after we did with woyana, a referendum is next, the destiny of Ogadenia is in the hands of our people and they will decide their fate and not the next useless Amhara/Oromo government from Addis Abba.

            What can Ethiopia offer us? What have they offered us in the last 80 years? Nothing but oppression, killings, destruction, rape, starvation etc.

            After woyana is cleaned any other ethnic armed group other then a Somali rebels enters Ogadenia a bullet awaits them (no kidding).

          • @Newera

            We dnt recognise your Amhara Ethiopia afterall its a fake created by none other then a Warlord called minlik.

            Ethiopians have no business in Ogadenia, Ogadenia doesn’t belongs to either Amharas or any other ethnic group, what happens in Ogadenia is for only the Ogaden people.

            Maybe if Hope is willing to participate the armed struggle I might re-negotiate.

          • You are stuck in the past buddy. I am not sure that poor region afford endless nation destructing building mambo jambo. Specially not when some nuts base their nation building excuse on tribe. Join the club, everybody in current Ethiopia was screwed by Minilik and few bullies from the Amhara tribe. Even Amharas screwed by theses Amhara bullies. Currently everybody is getting screwed by few bullies from Tigray. Stop blaming an entire ethnic groups. Suck it up and join every peace loving people in the current Ethiopia to stop the current conflicts and change the area to a better place for the coming generation. Do not hide behind what Ethiopia provide us crap. Ethiopia did not provide anything for 99% of its citizens so far. You only the narrow minded pieces of sh!ts are the ones use the excuse this and that tribe oppressed us excuse to satisfy your backward one tribe nation building dream.

          • Newera

            if u agree King milk and all the Amhara king r not good even for Amhara why r u want to go back to the old system..

            that is what Ancient Somali, i thought he is joiking when he call himself Ancient Somali but he is over 150 years and still think we r ruled by king Milk,,, so dont take that against him but he have a point to tell u he doesnt want to go back to the old Amhara system that u agree was bad .

            the new system somali going to be run by Somali u like it or not u can call it tribe ethnicity any name u call it beside the Amhara every ethnic want to govern their own region …u can do the same instead of trying to govern other region run ur own Region show us what u can do .. instead of going around and try to stop me having discussion with other why not answer ancient Somali question instead of try to be SmartAss and avoiding his question …when he say Amhara u know what he mean.. he know they r million poor and victim Amhar who were victimised by Amhara elite who thought they blood line was from Israel they thought they r better then the Amhara

          • @Ancient Somali,

            It ain’t time to talk about Emperor Menelik, Emperor Tewodros, etc. It sounds a once upon a time, in the stone age wonderland, all stones were …. We are in a different age of human civilizations, the age of machine learning let alone man the creator of machines themselves. Come out of the wood/jungle tribal thinking. Discuss how we can advance freedom for all our people in horn of Africa who have been specially deprived far long due to too much foreign interventions. You will never ever a achieve your dream for freedom if you cannot do it with all other Ethiopians.

          • Let me repeat Obama’s tweet about the horrific act of hate and racism in VA…the source of his tweet is copied from Nelson Mandela:
            “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite,”
            In my usual saying, I consider individuals like Fake Somali as brainwashed Nazi haters!!
            May God bless Ethiopia with our own Nelson Mandela and MLK!!

          • Waarya Kalé [Absent Somali]: My FREE SIPPING to send all ONLF to Somalia-1, 2, 3 still stands. So, hurry and let me know the number of Afar camels to borrow! Listen, Ethiopia needs Ogaden & its sand for a world-class glass factory!

            I am a hardened rebel fighter I do my talking in the battlefield son, if you think Ogadenia belongs to Minlik then come and get it.

    • This is very difficult to watch. When watching horrendous brutality documented in video and audio, it is very sad to imagine the indelible inter-generational bad memories it will pass on. What kind of country and generation would one expect growing in watching this. The TPLF’s hard earned fruit is misery, revenge, jail and death. The vampires are even proud of their gruesome crimes. What a disgrace.

      • This is just a fraction of T-TPLF horrendous crimes!! As hard as it is to watch, the Ethiopian victims’ families and those who witnessed this unprecedented horror live with these never-ending nightmares everyday of their lives! Our Gambelans brothers and sisters were slaughtered to hand their land to Saudis to grow rice!! I want the likes of Ash that walk around shamelessly bragging about bridges, dams, development this and that have come at the cost of Ethiopian lives — to never forget the horrific crimes they have committed and continue to commit in Afar, Amhara areas, Gambela, Oromo areas, on Somali Ethiopians, and so on.
        SimplySatanic!!

      • I want the likes of Ash not to ever forget!! Yes, it is hard to watch!! Unfortunately, that image is stack in the minds of the Ethiopian victims’ families and live with never ending nightmares, while T-TPLF members forgotten about them, and live in millions of dollar villas and their supporters and messengers, the likes of Ash bragging about development this and that, that have come at the cost of millions of Ethiopians lives. Our Gambelans brothers and sisters were massacred and their lands were given to Saudis! Simply Satanic!!

        • three stooges THE HOPE, ABABA AND DOMAHEAD

          U cant fool no body.. if the video is {very difficult to watch. When watching horrendous brutality }

          then this three stooge prescribed more war and distraction to stop TPLF Mind u they dont tell u that they r implying that hopefully the poor Ethiopian kids rise up and wage war and die in million to remove TPLF WHILE safely they r seating in America and driving their taxi and making their money ..

          Yes Muammar Gaddafi and saddam hussein kill. but he is an angle compere to now
          yes Derg kill but he is an angle compere to Isaias Afwerki
          Yes TPLF kill but they r much much better then what is coming

          poor Ethiopian people this people they r trying to hold fire with your hand… dont be fool if u listen to them and if u burn ur own house and u become refugee just like Eritrean and Syria dont cry river.. u r responsible for ur circumstance to all Ethiopian women if u dont listen to me and start revolution then if u get raped and murder dont cry because u r responsible because u caused revolution… what did u thought revolution is you did not see what happened to Syria women who dance on the street they r raped daily they cry they r innocent i am sorry they r not they caused the revolution by dancing on the street and shouting down down Bashar al-Assad

          now this parking lot kind and doorman telling u to start war … yes TPLF MIGHT KILLED 1000 BUT IN WAR 100,0000 PEOPLE WILL DIE DAILY and 29 million will be homeless and ten million would be refugee u will die in million if u start war … therefore u should do peaceful struggle four point.. anyone who told u start war or even implying u start revolution and uprising tell him to join u.. i am million % sure HOPE, ABABSH AND DOMA HEAD will not join the uprising in Ethiopia … i will give my neck …if they do.. u will not even show ur face here let alone taking risk in your life… i dont know how u sleep at night is beyond me..

          yes people die even in America police kill by mistake or out of fear 100,000 black are arrested and jailed daily… but i dont see anyone saying let start armed struggle…

          i am not denying TPLF kill there r people who might die here and their this is Africa we have very long way to prefect democracy.. this killing never justified more killing by declaring all out war what kind of stupid think war is not all about killing u going to die in mass if u declare war so one should discourage war four point..

          now about Gembelle under Amhara rule this people walking around naked and they were tourist attraction just like zoo..

          today they all dress up and govern their own region in fact Gembella is the most advance city and development area…under Amhara rule this people used to be called ባሪያ… today if u call them name u go to jail or even lose ur job u cant F around thanks for TPLF Gembella is the most benefited region .. i know u guys try to stop investment … if u dont like Arab and Chinese to invest in Ethiopia then u can ban them to go to Amhara region but u have no say over Gembella let the Gembella people speak up for themselves for once for once respect other region wish

          • Ashebarew Shifta Hagos,

            The former slave of Eritreans wouldn’t stop his stupid comments after being advised to go back to his toilet cleaning. Don’t forget that you are cooli Woyane thug. You enjoy the looting as long as TPLF lives. We understand why you get nervous. After we expelled the thieves you will return to your begging or serving your Eritrean masters. I also would like to remind you that you are the lowest of the lowest Woyane thugs on planet earth! You should have been born a donkey because you have a lot in common. But I will take a donkey over you. The only good Woyane is a dead Woyane!!

          • Damo,
            Comparing Woyanes to Donkeys is an insult to our beloved donkeys! Woyanes should be compared to man eater hyenas!! No one has ever served Ethiopians as our gentle Ethiopian domestic animals Donkeys!!

          • Hope,

            I don’t know how you read my mind. I was hesitant to compare the thug with the donkey and my finger accidentally hit the send button. I totally agree with you. I prefer a single donkey to a thousand Woyane thugs. Thanks for the correction!

          • Full of heartless, remorseless Nazi-Woyane-ISIS mumbo jumbo!! Ethiopians have been in 26 yrs of horrific Hell under the mass looters and mass murderer Woyanes!! Your time is up!!!

          • DOMAHEAD AND HOPE,

            That is what i am saying i am agreeing with TPLF is horrific hell.. u dont have to tell me that i am agreeing with u but how u going to remove them that is my question and how many people going to die doing so or do u care how many people die to remove TPLF

            HOLDING FIRE WITH THE HAND OF POOR OROMO YOUTH

            i am 1000000000000% sure will not answer this direct question ..

          • WHAT HAPPENED domehead and hope

            r u doing teacher Al mariam disappearing act?

            i know u have no answer beside insult .. anyhow thanks for exposing urself

          • Agazi Shifta Hagos,

            No body will die except Woyane wonbedes who came from Dedebit. If you surrender peacefully, you will be sent to Dedebit. Then depending your behavior, you may be allowed to come to Gonder and Addis to beg.

          • Domahead

            that is why i call u Domahead

            yes, it going to be a cakewalk no body die… it is virtual reality war game…

            that is what USA said when they went in to Iraq, and Afghanistan now it is almost 25 years later they still there

            that is what EPLF told the Eritrean they will be Singapore of Africa the reality was singpooooor

            that is what ur father mengistu haile mariam… Ethiopia first!

          • Agamew shiftaw Halefom,

            Don’t worry too much. You will be allowed to stay in Addis to clear the streets. We need experienced coolis to clean lavatories. You are lucky because your experience in Asamara will help you at all. If you don’t do a good job, you will be allowed to do Lewche Lewech. If that doesn’t work, your natural profession will be waiting for you. You know what is . Don’t worry.

          • Ash,

            Good, you admitted TPLF is a horrific genocide and killer. Now, Tell us yourself how you would like to see this monster removed and how soon it should pack up and leave. TPLF can’t every day be on killing spree , people have the right to self defense. If self defense is war/violence, so let it be.

          • Abebaw

            that was the hook when i admit TPLF is evil i hook u up like fish using my bites.. u took it.. now me and u agree that TPLF is evil… now how u going to remove it.. i want u to answer this …because u cant hide behind tplf is evil if i agree with u … what remain is to answer how u going to remove tplf … that is my interest… and u didnot disappointed u said {people have the right to self defense. If self defense is war/violence, so let it be.}okay put skin in the game… would u take any kind of risk u dont so u want to catch fire in poor oromo kids hand.. that is what the F i am saying along…

          • Ash,

            I have been saying this long , like all other million Ethiopians, TPLF is an evil genocider. By any moral standard it is immoral for any sane person to recommend and favor to let a genociding regime to continue doing what it is doing. You have the gut, courage and the willingness to cleanse your soul, tell your TPLF masters to quit and surrender power to the people. That way you would be doing your promise to the admissions that TPLF is evil. I am more than happy to do whatever my country requires me to do wherever and whenever. I never put my self and filthy riches before my country. But your are sadly sadly shoddy, you are quick to run and hide in filthy kitchen of ethnic politics – why would only Oromo kids fight TPLF why not other, Wolayta, Gurage, Amhara, Sidama, etc.

          • i am agreeing with u Mr. Ababaw

            yes, Wolayta, Gurage, ogden, Sidama,and oromo should join force with Amhara and fight TPLF … i agree with this logic but my question how they going to divide their war loot after victory

            how they going to elect their leader.. are Wolaytaa allowed to count their vote ? are Sidama allowed to count their vote and send their candidate to the capital or r u going to send ur people to count the vote for the Wolayta and Sidama

            list everything that u going to do and allowed ,,,, we have to see ur constitution how ur government run before we sign the contract .. otherwise if u keep on saying dont worry u r telling us to sign blank contract… we r refusing that come up with list of thing that u r better of meles and how u run ur government even before we even consider u …anything less is uncivilised and undemocratic

            if u have no answer for this i have no use for u dont even bother to answer because i will not reply anymore… do what u have to do by the way u r also comic what the F u just said u will go to war front .. if mama Ethiopia need .. how in hell u going to play me like that u told us devil is running Ethiopia what better time is there to fight back go no body will stop u .. make my day go to Eritrea and blog us from their …even that idiot HOPE AND DOMAHEAD will not dare to say they will go to war front . at the best they will not answer it or they hide behind insult but they never claim they will go to war …at age 77 year how in hell would u go .. come on now

          • Ash,

            You are a bad chef in the filthy kitchen of ethnic politics. What does it mean when you said “yes, Wolayta, Gurage, ogden, Sidama,and oromo should join force with Amhara “”?.
            You are opening your mouth wide to make your regular bigotry against Amharingna speaking poor Ethiopians. They have the right to exist and they will follow you to the gate of hell, you will never ever have peace. You will live forever half your eyes opened and condemned to walk over the edge of cliffs unless you stop your bigotry, apologize, and pay for all the crimes you perpetrated. In fact no one has benefited from the tigre minority regime other than handful of the tigre cliques or woyane who partnered in crime with TPLF. The Wolyta, Gurgahe, Oromo, etc don’t need any one to wake them up they have been condemning and fighting back the ethnic minority junta.

            The future Ethiopia will need neither ready made jungle born unfitting constitution nor a decayed immoral character of looting. So, you don’t have the moral capacity to worry and question the new constitution and system of governance. You are questioning my citizenry rights and obligations. As a proud Ethiopian when my country calls me for a duty, I am ready to do whatever expected me of – both in time of peace and war. I came ,like many other Ethiopians, from a patriotic family. War has never been new in my family and lineage. I am not eager to see war, I am eager to something new that NEW is peace. My dream like many other peace loving Ethiopians is PEACE , it is something that all Ethiopians eager to see in their life time, because there has never been peace in Ethiopia at least the inception of the TPLF. If peace requires an ultimate price that have to be paid, thank God I am spiritually and physically strong to do that job too. But you have to shut up warmongering, if you have the balls, talk about your strength and diligence in making peace. War has no friend, it eats both sides.

          • aaBABAW
            i have no longer use for u… u have no answer for me

            i used ur own world Wolayta, Gurage, ogden, Sidama,and oromo will fight TPLF and Amhara too they r fighting TPLF that is ur own world not mine…

            so my question is if Wolayta fight TPLF after victory they need tangible benfit such as governing themselves, contorting their own resources and of course paying Fed tax and use their own resources to develop their own region .. and sending their own candidate to parliament to do that they need to count their own vote.. i am not even asking to keep army regional army which is the most important to keep our democracy i am not even asking that because we dont trust each other for now at least would u allowed them to count their own vote…

            SECOND Where is the constitution of Ethiopia we have to write it before joining force and removing TPLF TELLING me we going to write the constitution after victory is like telling me to sign a blank contract it doesnt cut it.. tell use ur constitution before hand

            if u removed FED. ethic reigon with what r u going to replace it ?
            is Amhric will be a national lanaguage and force all Ethiopian to learn it

            would u ban the regional flag

            would u ban Afan oromia as regional working language

            u have to answer this basic question for starter u can go around the bush but nazret.com forum member knows what u r doing.. u r avoiding the question..

            what r u hiding that u dont want to tell us what kind of government we going to have after tplf

    • The video is unwatchable. I had to stop it because it is gross. The good thing is that each and every crime committed by Woyane wonbedes is recorded and kept in hard drives all over the world. When the inevitable happens, the evidence will be used to prosecute the surviving TPLF criminals.

      • ayalew_mongu/sew amagnu
        mata mata asafagnu
        Every morning alazagnu

        You continued Malazen is not going to change anyone’s opinion about the TPLF bandits. We all know that the Woyane thugs are in life support. They are confused, scared , and don’t know what to do with the tsunami that about to engulf them.

        Trump is no more providing free money to Woyane bandits for hiring mercenaries. HR 123 has passed , which will make TPLF thugs accountable for their crimes. As we speak, actions are under way to investigate each and every property bought in US by TPLF looters. Relatives of TPLF thugs are in panic mode because some may be deported and those who are trying to enter the US may be barred. The US will not be a hiding place for TPLF mercenaries. The struggle at home is gaining momentum.

        The futile attempt by some of the Woyane agents masquerading as concerned citizens will not work. Eritrea/Egypt and even athletics are used as a bogeyman to divert our people from the real issues. We won’t succumb to the paid cadres who are desperately trying to resuscitate dying Shifta empire created by Woyane Shiftas for Woyane Shiftas.

          • Ancient Somali.

            domehead used to be human smuggler he used to send women to Arab country .. when the women ask him more information he keep on telling them dont worry u going to be rich … now when the business become risky he change in to contract business he try to force his client to sign blank contract .. dont worry u going to have the new house soon just sign here … when the client ask why i am signing a blank contract dont worry u worry to much..

            now he want to play the same game here oont worry ,,, u worry to much all we need is remove tplf AND everything going to be alright it would be cakewalk…

            when u tell him how about Somalian, Syria , Egypt and Yemen dont worry u worry to much no body going to be killed we r the one doing all the killing dont worry…

            client is that not what ISISIS AFARKI TOLD Eritrean and he make them singpoooooooooooor if the people ask a real question and force him to give them the list of thing he would do before he took power they would be better of now .. because they would have voted to stay with Ethiopia .. had they know what is going to happened..

            now i want all information up front no information no signature i cant sign blank contract and the client left the office and join TPLF

            IF U DONT understand what i am saying it is not from u.. it take 40 years to make u understand it if very advance thought .. it is wrtten for next generation

          • Domahead

            the whole nazret.com see, u cant fool them .. u can dodge the real question like human smuggler keep on tell ur victim in this case (taxi driver, parking lot attendance, and doorman here in Dc, USA) DONT ASK ANY THING, dont worry just sign here dont worry yes it is a blank contract .. we going to write the contract after victory .. u worry to much

            from now own i will call u human smuggler… My dont worry guy.hahaha

          • Agame Shiftaw from Adwa,

            First get treatment for your Ekeke. Then you can talk humans. I have never come across a despicable pig like you. I am friends with many people from Tigray but never seen one who acts like a hyena. You are disgusting filth!!

          • Full of Ash,
            LOL! Delusional! Get a clue — the majority of people on this website are against you and your brutal inhumane T-TPLF boses!!

  34. I tend to believe T-TPLF is trying to re-brand itself. I am not sure whether this foolhardy up-grade would help to last long. It appears T-TPLF is moving away from being an open vocal TPLF to a pseudo-self critic one so as to avoid the ditch. Watch out, a snake is always a snake.

  35. Muktar Edris in 5000 baby!

    Well Kenesia said Mo will win the distance easily. He even said for Mo the 5000 will be easier than the 10000. How wrong he was. Keninsa must be watching a lot of EBC!

    • Domahead

      Kenesia said what he said before the game started .on the other hand idiot domahead, try to be expert after the game is over .. u DIDNT know IT Muktar going to win before the game started so shut up.. i hate monday morning quarterback

      • Agaziew Shifta Haylom,

        I am impressed with your knowledge of football. Monday morning quarterback? I thought the only thing you know in your miserable life is pulling a trigger of Ak-47. But, still I consider you the lowest of the lowest Woyane thugs out there.

  36. @Hope
    If you believe in minlik Ethiopia then why cant you come from your hiding spot and fight for what you believe, like ash said you lost your Ethiopia in 1991, so if you want to restore your Ethiopia pre 1991 then you gotta fight buddy.

    Ps no more excuse on the antibiotic hahahahahah.

    • Ancient Somali

      R u living in King milk time what r u talking about.. king milk is dead 150 years ago..come to the future dont live in the past…

      i am just joking … i hope u taking joke.. i know Somalian r notorious when it come to taking joke ..

      • Unlike you, I don’t hate anybody by ethnicity, gender, religion, race, by the color of one’s skin. I hate hate itself deeply! In Ethiopia alone, since 1973, 98 million Ethiopians have been witnessing what hate-filled inhumane evildemented individuals are capable of!!! Just like you, that young brainwashed racist man in VA believes his
        race is suprior and justified running over innocent people that were standing against hate and racism!!

      • Abiy-adi. Shiftaw hagos,

        Golden race? Beles feeding hungry agame cooli of the first order. Look at your face. What do you see in the mirror? Starved filthy, ugly zombie. Atela agame!!!

  37. My fellow Ethiopians, stay focused. Know your enemy and UNITE. Its the only answer. 371 comments, 64 by one attention seeking Woyanae thug. That by itself speaks volumes. A tiny tiny extreme of the minority impose its will by force over tens of millions majority. What we see in here the same disgusting behavior.

    • Shewarega

      i wish if u had listen to Newerror and stop talking to me.. because it is not fun punching u u r too light weight for me.. i am walking all over u.. and u did not notice … i am dying laughing

      what did u said hahah

      {{“After TPLF leave power who is counting the vote.” The vote is counted before the incumbent leaves not after. Got it, everything you say back fire, clearly showing you have no intention honoring the will of the people. You came by force, you stay by force, and in the end you will be removed by a massive upheaval of the people by force.}}

      o! my God if u removed TPLF by force how in hell they will allowed u to count the vote while they r in power .. if they r the one who counting the vote they will say TPLF WIN 100%

      WE have to change the election voting system who is counting the vote…

      in America each state count their own vote … so r u going to allowed oromo counting their own vote.. i dont mind if we have representative from each region witnessing the vote count …

      we have nine region and we need each region to count their own vote…now u might think oromo region will win 100% and they take power no it doesnt work like that we have more then 501` electoral seat oromo only get 30 seat and Amhara will get only 25 seat and Tigray will get 6 seat .. so each region need 251 vote to win the Parliament since the biggest region have only 30 vote they need to join force with other to get 251 seat therefore no body going to cheat u even if they do it will not be effective … so r u ready to answer my question who is counting the vote even after i explain to u how electoral collage work

      this is very simple explanation but i hope u understand it

      by the way 371 vs, 64… u see having number is not important u need quality … i stop revolution by telling TPLF to cancel their tax hike and look now the tax hike is forgotten on person is very powerful they can stop revolution and u saw it this not my first time stooping revolution… long live the Golden race

      • Qomaxxaa occupier,

        LMAO, yeah you walking over me, with what feet? You have none, both left in Asmara begging from your Qomaxxena. Your head full of shit, shouting the most means quality for you. But then again unlike the rest in here you are paid for it, it’s your job. The empty barrel makes the most noise. You are an occupier, you are a murderer, you are a looter, you are a hater and as such you are the most despised by millions. Even in here you get more thumbs down than everybody else combined. Most of the other cadres have washed their hands and surrendered, We don’t see much of them any more, more worried about other things, trying to flee a sinking ship, the writing on the wall. But you are dumb, a stupid yellow head Nazi, you will bark til the end, the bitter end. But the outcome is always the same and guaranteed.

        Why don’t you try to talk about yourself? LOL is there anything to talk about there other than calling a useless trash gold? Why constantly Amara this Oromo that? This region this, that region that? I have never seen in my life a useless fool who spend all the time talking about others. Let me tell you this, 13 years I pass thru here nobody nobody nobody else but you call the Oromo Galla, none. Now you turn around talk others call them the “G” word. If you see it might benefit your arguement you try to look respectful, if not you call them names. Same way you move the capital from Adama to Addis back n forth. Gena tenekketobehal, your time will be up soon. No more division, all will stand like a single person. Cry for your kids, your grand kids the price they will pay for your stupidity.

  38. Adigrat Shiftaw Hagos,

    You must have eaten a lot of Ferefari to day because you are upchucking every five minutes. Some one told me that you were inside a Macdonald today looking for left over. We know one thing about for sure: you can’t handle Tegabe. Keresam Woyane thug that ever lived on planet earth!!!
