    Oh! Woyane has started its long time awaited gully game!! OHG, how many booms should they blast until they get all opposition parties in Kality??

    For that matter, world is closely watching them and they can’t buy any mind this time in particular.

    • Binieam Mj Tyson says:

      Are you programmed to be this ignorant or just plain stupid? did you not read Al- shabab took responsibility for the bombings.

    • Haile says:

      Are you insane? How could you blame Woyane when Al shabab is taking the responsibility already? Big Moron, try to clear the mucus that has filled ur head first. Fesam, huala kizen bekizen litihon jegnoch tisadebaleh.

    • bendo says:


      I though the oppositions are against Alshebab or is there some thing i don’t know that will make them connected.

      I am tired hearing a lecture people like you Andargachew, Tesfaye gebere ebab, ESAT/G7 who doesn’t know hating the gov. and working against the country.

      Just getting down in there knee for who ever show them dollar.
      you might be one of those who are getting paid from the $200,000.00 stolen from the poor Eritrean given to ESAT.

      I know for you ESAT/G7, Alsheba, tesfaye gebre ebab all are the same b/c all get there salary from Shabia

    • Mekdes says:

      Bekalu, u must be out of ur mind to make people believe ur story. Ur dummy ideas didn’t work in the past and it will never in the future. I think u might one of the jihadist who want to se mayhamin Ethiopia. Ur affiliated groups like Dimsachin Yisema will never succeed. Why any govt try to plant pile of bombs and blast it in neighborhood. If u try to fight go and join G7 never existing army in Eritrea not tokill innocent civilians in the city.

      Opposition groups if they r involved, yes they should be worried but if they are not in it they don’t have to worry about it. Fes Yalebet zilay aychilim alu.why u wory about the opposition groups. If it is found out these people are somalians why u talk about Ethiopian opposition groups.

    • Dave says:

      Don’t be dull u Bekalu, u are still insulting woyane when alshebab already taken the responsibility

    • kebraraw says:

      bekalu you must be the dumpiest ass i ever seen in 2013 how could you be so stupid alshebab has already taken responsiblity and yet you say shit how deep your ignorance is you pupet of the terrorists

    • daniel says:

      your ignorance level is amazing!

  2. dum says:

    @bekalu you seam so much obsessed with the term weyane.. why don’t u make sense.. Do you understand what does kafir mean.. all none Muslims are kafir for these terrorists. they are happy killing people.

  3. Mahlet Asefa says:

    Al shebab can only triumph the way it did in Kenya. Never ever in Ethiopia, they know if they try a bad prunk like the west gate in Addis they will each be hunted and beaten by the unforgiving hands of the Ethiopian military. If there is anything the Alshabab fear more than the American air force is the ass kiking they get from Ethiopia.

  4. Binieam Mj Tyson says:

    May God be with the two victims of this cowardly act.

  5. yohannes says:

    @ bekalu u have to use ur mind u G7 or sabia go to hill !!

  6. tola kebede says:

    Listen, there is no realy opposition group in ethiopia. they r fake opostion woyane don’t expect to worry about this.the main thingis this bomb who did it ? Alshebab,olf,shabiy or sadique the person is hiding in washington.

  7. Mamo Kilo says:

    If anyone thinks this was done by anyother group than Woyane, they are really idiots. Woyane did what it is good at and used fake name on twitter to claim responsibility in the name of Al shabab. How come people never learn Woyan’s trick. Sebhat Nega is in USA to beg support to fight Al shabab and that is the proof they try to show. Both Woyane and Al Shabab are the same. They are terrorists.

  8. teshome says:

    This is part of ‘Ginbote 7 Hulegabe Tigle’. We knew long time ago that Ginbote 7 down load Al Shabab hard ware.
    What is always amazing me, the Ethiopian government negligence to allow ‘oppositions’ who already had a strong tie with Ginbote 7′ but calming to operate under the frame work of Ethiopian constitution.
    Why in the first place the Ethiopia oppositions lost their gut to label Ginbote 7, ONLF and OLF as a terrorist organizations, is a good question to ask. That simply justify a direct and indirect link they had with organization.
    Yesterday’s attack spark anger reaction among Ethiopians and most importantly it heralded a more sever plot. we unreservedly and out rightly ask the Ethiopian government, to bring all oppositions who had tie with ESAT and ‘shabia’. I can’t justify it, If ESAT and Gibnote 7 are getting all the leverages from Eritrean government, the domestic Ethiopian oppositions will decline all kinds of milk from ‘shabia’
    I have few advices for other Ethiopian oppositions who are operating peacefully, they need to denounce yesterday’s attack.
    Do it now, no politics, no delay, no excuse..

    • Teshome2 says:

      Wow……u must be …….to tell us u can download hardware.
      Someone told me u graduated from one of TPLF uni and u are managing director of one of tplf company.

  9. henok says:

    plz guys don’t be fool, Somalis never be our ally, so we have to see them carefully. its the right time to save our country from EPRDF and extremists.

  10. azmatch says:

    Do you remember what the opposition said few years ago. This is the quote ” in our struggle to defeat EPRDF we know at list 15,000 people will die and we will be in power”. The opposition doesnot care about Ethiopia as long as they assume power. Another quote by a member of Ginbot 7. I will quote ” when we assume power after oover throwing EPRDF, we will return to our old values”. Is this to the values of killing machine of the Derg or the feudal values of Haileselassie.

  11. Bekalu says:

    again my opinion to woyane cadres!

    Hope this time it will be posted!

    Long time, it was known that woyane often put bombs around gathered people and in taxi to kill people in search of reason to put these people they fear. For these of us who believe in the concept of arguments, based on premises and theories, the likelihood that this job was done by woyane is could be more than 90%, even at P<1%.

    is this new that woyane often use bombs, kill some groups so that they find way to jail some one? I am sure American Ambasador had more info than any of you who bark here. Go and tell to your cruel leader who love to see blood flow on the street.

    On other hand where do you think we learn blackmailing, if this is so? it is from woyane? he learn labeling some one when he is descent. Woyane has labeled 1000s, based on fabricated evidences. If i am wrong in what i have said above, i learn that from my woyane teachers, woyane cadres.

    But i tell you forget alshebab. They knew the consequences when they come to addis. They will never come. I donot mean that we have to not protect our country. We have to be firm in that case. But this is woyane—
    —whose song is that one—satamehagn belagn—-woyane ayajibo—

    • Jhonny says:

      Bekalu, As far as I know the song belongs to Gossaye. Denkoro yeabugeda Shifta yederg cadre. The morons dream will never be realized as long as the galnt EPRDF gallant forces are there. Keep on shitting on your pant.

  12. hena says:

    The best defense is an offence . We better get the snake from its hole

    This is part of the Wahhabis grand plan to turn the entire African continent into their source for ‘kadames’, that is modern day slaves. There is no religious persecution in Ethiopia. None period. This is the work of petro dollars that those fat ass Sheikhs spew around at will and at random. They disdain rainbow societies and day dream that in their lifetime the entire world will be of one religion, by hook or crook.

  19. w .yilma says:

    Ignore Bekalu. Bekalu is Bekalu, no one will change his sick mind. It is not about Woyane we are talking. It is about our people safety and security. Imagine Bekalu, if the bomb has detonated in a place where innocent Ethiopians are gathering, what would be the consequences? Are you going to be satisfied like our enemy Isayas? You learn lesson from your master Isayas to blame the EPRDF for any wrong doing and things like this. Check your thinking or look for help from your doctor, if you have, if not search Obama universal health care website. If you have difficulty to log in ask help the CNN OR MSNBS, but not FOX NEWS.
    My concern is not Bekalu. What are our security forces doing? Tanks God those perpetrators died before they commit crime against our people. Keeping and strengthening security is not about the ruling party, it is about our people. Our people should exerts efforts to know the person whom they rent their home.
    What is important to note here is that we should not point fingers to each others because of this incidence. It is not the society from where these two perpetrators came from committed the crime, it is those two individuals who conspired to committed this crime should be blamed. our security should work hard to find if they have collaborators.
    Thanks God for foiling this hideous terrorist conspiracy.
    Long Live Ethiopia

  21. Fukeraw says:

    This is nothing new. It has been the modus operandi of the Woyane regime for long time. Their main objective is to harass, intimidate and silence legitimate citizen concern and finally shut off opposition groups. Fool me once… fool me twice…

    • Kuliche Bakagn says:

      Sometimes you need to be convinced by evidence as a human being. No one allow for himself to die while exploding unless he/she is abnormal like this and other terrorists. You can see the date, the time and the closeness of the action to AA stadium and the camouflaging they try to do (wearing the national football cloth). From your judgment, everybody of us will cry while things are happening on our own brothers- this is wrong. Fikarew by this sense ” if I said your brother has been killed by this explosives, you will start to cry-that is the pain. Hating the government’s policy and implementation is one thing, promoting this type of action is another. Please do not be blind for this type of issues at all the time as you have a sense of seeing and understanding to see them.

    Sometimes we all become disbelieving in some matters and we give up for the truth after a while. But suspicious in all things comes from our believe or disgust is unhealthy and only arise from great ignorance. Opposing Ethiopian government is one thing but standby to insult and against what they announce is really comes from infant thinking. Ethiopian really saved by God from Sunday’s attack for there is hardly any such mistake recorded in last or deployed time. Here is the sequence; Select target, make surveillance or study the target, deploy and attack. Look how we are lucky at last moment. Any way I want to say sorry for some of you that have a negative thinking towards Ethiopian at home for your pray to see Ethiopian blood and flash haven’t seen. The extremist Die-ass-poor-a becomes a horses to Shabeya to regain what Esayas lost came from his untrained politician though. When I heard about the situation from credible source with my friend [who always suspicious what a government official said} I said to him that we will see some people say this a fake history from Weyane. Please do not be foolish, we should stand together against those caveman and savage terrorist with their co-worker Sahbiya for the sake of our innocent people Ethiopian at home. Thank you

  24. meron says:

    It is so so sad to hear such a news on blasting of bomb in the heart of our be loved Adu Genet. One can imagine how shocking and fearsome to the city resident to hear such a nasty news and attempts. Bomb is a mass killing machine that can kill many at a time, from children who donot know anything, through the youths who have intact and astonishing dream to old people who wish to rest in peace the rest of their life. It destroy infrastructure including mega once, hence costly burden to any country.

    Hence we all have to stand bold to protect our country and people from such happenings.

    On the doubt

    i briefly read all the comments both from pro woyane, pro democracy, neutral…

    In addition to the bad news about the bomb, it made me sad that we citizens are unable to stand in one even in such events. Though i feel sad and may disagree, i have no point to insult those who associate the situation to the government. I also share some of the neutral citizens who argue that, government can’t do this to its own people.

    What pooled several people to such a corner of associating such a did to woyane is that,

    1. Bombing happen in addis only in time when the government is stressed, pressed by public movement (rummer) or when oppositions become stronger—one can’t deny the pressure in which the government is performing since the death of the former PM.
    2. It is obvious that, before such event (bombing attempt) happened the government official repeatedly announce through all their medias that the public is vulnerable, the oppositions have relation to foreign enemies—-and etv, the radio and the high officials including the Pm has done that during the past 2-4 months.

    3. It is also usual that, when there is such an events (bombing news) in neighbor countries, it also happen in addis, though i have no idea why it is so.

    4. woyane has boldly associated to the pre 2005 bombing in addis more than any body and that info is in the head of majority of the citizens

    5. The negligence of woyane leader and the hate they have to their people coule make us that they may use bombs, kill some people and then target these figures they often fear

    6. the level woyane love its chair, the level of corruption the leaders are in, and the level of disrespect they have for their people—all make us to associate them with such bad acts.

    I am so so sorry for woyane cadres, but these above mentioned and many more has made many people to suspect the governments more than Alshabab.

    Alshabab is one of the biggest enemy Ethiopia have this time in particular. They may use any window to distabliz our country.

    NB: When i look at the video, many questions come to my mind.

    Look at the wires, it seems a kind of training than targeting big mission. If Alshabab, why they have chosen a living room than a public places?

    Anyhow, may the Almighty save our country both from Alshebab, woyane and other opposition who are pushing us to another bloody situation. Aboue all, the ball is on woyane filed and hence they can act and still have time to down their disrespect for people, negotiate from heart and bring peace to our country.

  25. Kebede says:

    Meron what a bunch of bs your comment…I can see that how much narrow minded you are….

  26. Hakim says:

    Praise be to our trusted God, who protects us from evil deeds. I suggest the Ethiopian government to further tighten its intelligence and security systems at all levels, including:
    1. Register and do background check on all Somalis, particularly those living in Addis. Hell with any human rights or western based critics, if arise
    2. No Ethiopian shall rent/lease their property to anyone, particularly foreigners who are not properly registered and verified by local authorities. Failure by anyone must lead to serious criminal prosecution and property repossession – up to capital punishment, if the risk is realized and/or assessed to be significant.
    3. Avoid mass concentration of Somalis in and around major cities. Refugees must be kept in remote, designated and secured camps. Disintegrate, sanitize places like little Mogadishu.
    4. I know this is the norm for Ethiopians but may not necessarily be in written law or policy – 100 fold retaliation/punishment principle – by the government and general public. If they kill one Ethiopian then make sure the public retaliate with 100 folds of Somalis in the city and at the same time government forces hit hard multiple targets in Somalia.
    5. Minimize negative impact to peace loving and God fearing Somalis. Provide them the true Ethiopian hospitality, support and love towards them. Put proper mechanism to punish any Ethiopian or others who try to misuse the principles to disadvantage or harm peaceful Somalis.

    My thought, open 4 correction.

    God bless and protect Ethiopia.

  27. Sisay says:

    at teshome!
    I always surprised when i read your commendatory. A weak ago i decided to ignore your contribution. I think i have to do as you are too far even from EPDRF is thinking. What do you mean to jail all opposition parties? is this not a recommendation from en educated person? are you serious? Don’t you think it is such a push of dissents that may end up in bombs? have idea on the consequences of frustration on freedom, identity, diginity? No no you have no idea on that: if you have what the government has done during the past 20 years, and mainly after the pass away of Meles is more than enough to convert peaceful people to cruel.

    If you really have mind and wish to keep a peaceful Ethiopia, what you are blindly recommending to the government is dangerous, dangerous not less than Alshebab.

    Please donot open your moth wide, otherwise, we see deep in you. I think many have already done that.

    I decided not to ignore your posts, as i knew close many EPRDF ministers and as they lack confidences and capacity, they often pick such recommendation thrown to them from ill people like you. Thanks to Meles, they have no full capacity to identify between what is honey and poison.

    So if you like Ethiopia and her people, write what is useful. As to ESAT please donot try to confuse people–I heard several times when government leader participate in an enterview–i remember aboy when he said fatima—-

  28. getuuu says:

    wow too much noise! Somalis has been with us at least for the last 23 years and nothing happend but ask yourself why now ? I am not sure who did that without any proff about the persons who are killed or any person who rent them the house or any other additional information. It is a closed issue based on the information provided on ETV and it is hard to say do and don’t!However such kind of cases are growing day by day following the muslim resistance and it does left some doubt that Ethiopian goverment,known for such kind of plot since HAWZEN TO Z KINIJIT RIOT,could have not been genuine enough to have such a claim! Any way,no matter how happen in Ethiopia,the good people deserve protection and good Somalis deserve due protection like any of us living in Ethiopi! Stop puting everyone in the same basket!
