ኢሬቻ፡ ሕወሃትና የኦሮሙማዎች ደም ጥማት! በሕገ መንግሥት የተደገፈ ብልግናና በዜጎቻችን ደም ለመጨማለቅ ዝግጅት!

ሽመልስ አብዲሳ ኢሬቻ ላይ ከቀናት በፊት ያወረደው አሳፋሪ መፈክር፡:-

“ኦሮሚያን እንገነባለን፣ ኢትዮጵያን እንደግፋለን፤ የአፍሪካን ቀንድ እናረጋጋለን!”

የቴዲን ርዕዮት ገፅ አንባቢ አስተያየት:

“እቢይ አህመድ ተንኮልና ቁማር የሚወድ ሰው ስለሆነ የተስጠውን የህዝብ እምነት ያመከነ ሰው ነው። አቢይ አህመድ በወያኔ ፤ ኦነግ፥ ሻቢያና በ ግብፅ ታዛቢነት የተፃፈውን ህገመንግስት በጉያው ታቅፎ ብጥብጥ ከመጋበዝ ሌላ ለአገር የሚጠቅም መስረታዊ ለውጥ ለማምጣት ችሎታም ፈቃድም የለውም ። ቡአገራችን ውስጥ ላለው ምስቅልቅል ሁኔታ መነሻ የሆነውን ህገመንግስት ብዙ መስዋእትኑት”

Bedlu Desta writes:

“What we must remember is that Abie [Abiy] needs TPLF and Ongshenie [OLF Shene] to confuse the public and working hard for oromuma realities”

Should Abiy Ahmed finally facilitate the birth of ‘INDEPENDENT TIGRAY’ with Asmeleash Wolde Selassie as its foreign minister?

Addis Abeba, September 29/2020 – In an interview aired on Tigray Mass Media Agency, Asmelash Wolde Sellassie, executive member of Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the governing party of Tigray regional state, said the region will not comply with laws, directives, and regulations, among others, to be enacted by the federal government after its current term in office came to an end on October 05/2020.

This will not sit well with Ethiopians and the international community! I heard Saturday on the news US Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s advisor underlined the importance of all parties talking. It came with a tone that censures the Abiy Administration!

Of late, international human rights organisations have been critical of the repressive policies of the janus-faced Abiy administration (duplicitous, contrasting actions and personalities)

Bereft of Popular Mandate, Hard to Keep the State Viable

2 Jun

Posted by The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)

Addis Fortune Editorial, May 31, 2020

Two years ago, standing before parliament, Prime Minister Abiy acted and sounded like a leader ready to offer the country a break in an inclusive future.

Alas! He would later on charge the very parliament that installed him as Prime Minister of having questionable legitimacy. The swearing-in speech was perhaps his most significant performance, carefully delivered to herald the coming of a more refined and prosperous future while also walking a fine line to convey that the foundation for this would be the preservation of the status quo.

Running a state that has no functioning democratic, if not credible, institutions, or the social infrastructure to accommodate rapid changes with several orders of magnitude, is more complicated than is advertised by many in the opposition. Attempting to do this without a clear mandate might have been a tall order. It was no different for Prime Minister Abiy, and each year has brought fresh challenges that are compounding to pose an existential threat to the Ethiopian state.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) has come a long way since his spectacular arrival at the top of Ethiopia’s political scene. In 2018, few would have predicted a state of political uncertainty would, in combination with economic, social and natural disasters all coming together, evolve to unravel almost every facet of life. The Prime Minister is as much to blame as the slew of unprecedented challenges that were visited upon the country.

From his pulpit, amid a crisis, Abiy regally dismisses all opponents

After unilaterally deciding that Prosperity Party will govern until elections, the type of ruling system the Nobel laureate yearns for becomes clearer and clearer

History may show that last week was a decisive moment in the post-EPRDF era. Albeit a clear sign that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is heading in the wrong direction.

On 27 April, Prosperity Party’s Central Committee chose constitutional interpretation among the now famous four options to overcome the constitutional crisis: dissolving parliament; declaring a state of emergency; constitutional amendment; and constitutional interpretation. In advance, the government tasked a team of “highly reputable legal experts” to conduct an in-depth analysis. This was disclosed by the Prime Minister only ten days later in his 7 May address. The legal team’s composition is not public.

As if the four options were still on the table, Abiy then “consulted” opposition leaders about them on 29 and 30 April. He told his social media followers the meeting was “fruitful”, but on the occasion he also attacked the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) and Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

To the first, as one its former militant wing is engaged in an armed struggle in Wellega, he said: “You cannot stand on the peaceful and legal struggle and armed activity”. For the second: “practice democracy on your turf. You cannot repress in Tigray and demand a free and open forum in the Federal government”.  Furthermore, he condemned those political forces allegedly working with enemies of Ethiopia. He called them “banda”, the label for Ethiopians who collaborated with Italian invaders after 1935.

April 8, 2020 (GEDAREF) – In a speech delivered near the Ethiopian border, the head of Sudan’s Sovereign Council, Abdel-Fattah al-Burhan, declared that the armed forces will vigorously defend the country’s borders.

Residents of the area told Sudan Tribune, on Wednesday that the Ethiopian army has begun to penetrate into Sudanese territory, and has distributed Sudanese lands to Ethiopian farmers.

Accompanied by senior army officers, al-Burhan travelled to the border area of ??Doka, where the army deployed troops recently, amid reports of military build-up on the other side of the border.

He paid a visit to the headquarters of forces deployed on the Sudanese-Ethiopian border, where he was briefed about the security situation in the area.

The head of the Sovereign Council was accompanied by Chief of Staff Staff Major General Mohamed Osman al-Hassan, the Director of the General Intelligence Service Jamal al-Din Abdel Majeed, and a number of army senior officers.

በመርሃ ጽድቅ መኮንን ዐባይነህ

 

Cairo’s goal is to make Egypt owner of the Nile waters, while Ethiopia has been contributing 86 percent of the water to the longest river in the world, the Nile River.

 

 

The New York Times wallows in confusion, when it falsely portrayed Egypt’s past control of the Nile waters. I feel sorry for NYT, once my hometown paper.  It mis-adventurously wrote: “For Thousands of Years, Egypt Controlled the Nile. A New Dam Threatens That.”

Past Egyptian attempts up until the last quarter of the 19th century, unlike the understanding of The New York Times, was characterized by none of the sorts, possibly save Egypt persistently conspiring against Ethiopia. I am surprised a major newspaper should find itself in such awkward position.

The fact is on November 16, 1875, Ethiopian forces defeated Egyptians at the Battle of Gundet. Those who survived fled for their life. Come March 8-9, 1876, in an act of revenge, Egypt invaded Ethiopian position from its Red Sea post of Gura, according to historical records. Egypt faced the same fate, i.e., its force were routed out.

Given this, if the past is any guide to win-win solution to Egypt’s arid nature, the win-win solution is sharing the waters of the Nile River, in accordance with the 1997 first international water lawand a relief.
