    I have never seen a government who misunderstands its own constitution, arrogantly shun students correction and revert to increasingly violent methods. IMO The government should pull the master plan, correct the corrupt and arrogant addis ababa officials. PM should make a televised statement of reconciliation and re-assuranceOtherwise, I am afraid that this might go national amongst the nations and nationalities who are not sure where EPRDF itself stands on CLEAR constitutional issues that it peddles with 4 to 5 weeks into the issue but launches an Annole II campaign instead of correcting itself. The only way to the addis ababa master plan is constitutional amendment a referendum. Not abate sexotaw making a threat in the amerism of the neo-Minilikists.

      it is very shameful for the editor of this online news of posting the pictures of the christian people who were peacefully worshiping as a protesters.It is an ethical and unprofessional to post dead and injured people photos from somewhere else as the people who are killed this week.BBC did not show these pictures.

      • Dan says:

        Very well said Ewunet. No doubt that the editor clearly knows the pictures are not from BBC. As a journalist he should either be responsible for what he posts or confirm and refer to a source. In this case he has failed miserably. As a matter of fact I sometimes find it hard to blame the government for detaining the so called journalists. Journalism in ethiopia is being killed by those who serve others by the name of journalist.

    When a dormant volcano erupts the consequences washes away everybody in it’s path. The Wolaita people need to refrain from being opportunistic by being the first example in history to practice empathy towards all Ethiopians . The Wolaita people got a historic chance to proove to the whole world by standing with the disadvantaged Ethiopians right now. Eventhough the elites in Ethiopia consider themselves to be untouchable this ‘YEMETAW YIMTA’ generation of Ethiopia will not stop until they get what they want because they got nothing to loose except their degraded existence .The elites made a mistake when they considered the patience of the disadvantaged as a weakness. one famous rapper named 2paac once said before he gave his life doing what he believed is worth doing ‘Revenge was the 2nd most sweetest thing for him’ best served cold say most . Eventhough it is best to forgive I doubt anyone will forget the constant agony ordinary Ethiopians were subjected by the few cliques who considered majority of Ethiopians are bunch of animals that don’t deserve any recognition while few deserve to manipulate the whole country’s resources to their selfish motives.

    It is getting to a point where compromising with the advantaged rulers is not even an option for most ordinary Ethiopians who are constantly being used and abused by the control freak, malicious ,scandalous cowards that claim to be shot callers in Ethiopia .These elites who are disrespecting the entire nation by treating the next generation of Ethiopians as cattle getting ready for the slaughter house need to be nipped in the butt before they make it a culture. The slave Kabo mentality that plagued Ethiopia has even brought families to break up and people to commit suicide in a rate not seen in Ethiopia even in the foreign invasion times. Wolaita people need to practice humility and humbleness to heal the broken spirit of the “Dormant Ethiopians”. The elite need to correct their ways at once and give the so called dormant Ethiopians what is just. is daily working towards reconciling which is getting more and mire impossible by the day due to these kind of actions that are taking places setting the country back to the stone ages.

    If people choose dooms days they will get it.Student movement will never bring positive change. It is the path of anarchy! and destruction. Those old dogs who are fanning this kind of disobedience are from that anarchy generation. they were anarchy during that time and now they are doing the same.
    Are we want to be an enemy of ourselves? A tool for Eritrean and Egyptian messengers? Now the old “Dogs” are fanning from distance to set fire in their home land.The Addis Ababa city plan is not implemented yet, and no Oromia land was grabed. What is all this demonstration? What is the problem if Addis and the adjacent Oromia cities work together to develop their cities? Who is going to benefited from this? Is it not the Oromos? Ethiopian, please learn, learn and still learn to develop our methods of thinking and handling issues. We are very poor in analyzing events. Why we echoing like Gedel Mamito! Are we choosing the road of destruction or development?. Erase hate mentality and come to your mind my fellow Ethiopians! For some it is happiness to see when unfortunate poor people blood spills on the in Ethiopian towns. This scenario is a source of income for some Maniac mass media outlets like american radio, ESAT and foreign based interested groups in the name of human right. This is the methods they are using to destroy countries to achieve Geo-politics interest.Mass media at this time is a silent nuclear weapon designed by corporate America and Europeans to destroy developing nations. Poor countries have many Banda’s barricading in western capitals who are advocating destruction for their home country. Ethiopia is an example. Let’s look other countries who are at war of destruction. Are we wishing the same for our beloved country? What did Ethiopia did to us? why we always stubbornly stand against our own poor country? There are good starts, and even if we do not like the government in power there are ways and means we can address the issue, but certainly not through anarchy!
    Long Live Ethiopia

    • MTG says:

      Obviously you are not well informed about the problem. What the oromo students are raising is a constitutional question. The ethiopian constitution clearly gives rights to oromia on paper. It also states that oromia has a special interest and benefit from Addis Ababa. The practice on the ground , however, is far from that. In expanding the city, the government is violating its own constitution. The announcement of expansion is one sided without engaging the affected people of the towns. Most people in these towns are farmers who can ill afford to build on the land as outlined in the master plan. The only asset they have is their land. Yet, Ethiopian law says that land belongs to the government.Thus, rendering land that these farmers have used for generations worthless. So, what compensation do these people get for being displaced. Is it not in the interest of the government to do development that is more consultative and participatory?

      Some of the additional constitutional questions include, who is going to collect taxes from the residents of the new expanded area? will oromos who reside in the new expanded zone be able to teach their children in afan oromo in school? What role will Oromia play as a state? The current plan is to relegate it as a bystander.

      So, the issue is not whether development should occur. The oromo students are fine with development as long as the people whose towns are affected are also beneficiaries of this so called development . But, the way the plan is currently laid out, instead of key stakeholders, they are nothing but a nuisance to get rid of.

      While the students are within their rights to ask these questions, Responding violently to unarmed students will continue to make the situation worse. It is in the interest of all concerned for the government to resolve it through dialogue and not the barrel of the gun.

      • Tgash says:

        MTG I have 2 questions?

        My brother, before you want us to accept your explanation of what the “Addis Abeba expansion” plan was, do you, by any chance, have any copy of the official document that details the “Addis Abeba expansion” plan that would corroborate your interpretation of the master plan? If so can you post it, so that we can read it for yourself and make our judgment?

        And also Can the editors of this website find a copy of the original document and post it for every one to read?

        How about the story that the government was going to lay out the plan and conduct a public discussion before it implements it? Is that story falls?

    • billfree says:

      @ w.yilma
      poor analysis.
      If you do not have something to say try to refrain from saying anything.
      Being tigre is not the only important thing to justify any EPRDF’s action (like killing innocent students) positively.

      • Mekdes says:

        Friends, those Ethiopian journalists, let’s give them the title, because they claim it. I don’t Ewnet and Dan heard, the news of ESAT about south Sudan’s John Kerry’s visit, they put the speech he made in Addis. The falsifying of news and information is like a habit for Ethiopian Journalists.

        This journalist would have lost his job for doing such stupid mistake. Because it will ruin the reputation of the newspaper. But for Ethiopians it is OK. Dave if you made this kind of mistake u better change your profession. Some dummy Diaspora will argue with you these are demonstrators from Wengelait Misson, because most of the Oromos missionary. It is sad people lost their life . But I hope the govt. Control it.

    In Ethiopia democracy, human rights, and the role of opposition political parties in a society is making the country unstable. For countries, like Ethiopia, democracy can be a source of unrest because the oppositions tend to use human rights as an excuse to bring change when these opposition parties lose an election since human right issues are way far away to be met by any third world country because of lack of full understanding of this complex issue. To implement human right issues and fully apply it with out falling into the philosophical pitfalls due to its complexity a society has to be complex enough , educated enough to exploit it to full measure. Until then human right issues must be applied focusing on educational aspect of it to grasp its depth rather than its ideal implication of it. A party which wants to participate in political process must adhere to the ballot box to bring political changes. Civil society must fight for human rights in Ethiopia with out focusing on political out come. Unless Ethiopia understands and differentiates these two groups, organizations who want to have stacks on the political process, and civil societies who advocate for human rights, the countries political social and economical priorities will be tarnished. The murky overlap role that exist between civil societies and opposition parties needs to be cleared out. If opposition parties to change a government by demonstration when things are in favor of that and allowing opposition to participate on an election to become a governing body are to opposite things in democracy. One is democratic process the other is non democratic process which can be incited just by raising some human right issues and some temporary social inconveniences. Political parties must refrain from calling demonstrations because political parties participating in demonstration undermines voting process. If political parties have an issue they must go through the legal process to challenge their concerns before demonstrations. Only civil societies that has no any affiliation to any political parties can ask the public to demonstrations. The west tend to favor the role of opposition and civil society as murky as possible because they want to use either of this to overthrow a government that is not in favor of the west. The color revolutions we witnessed recently are prime examples of how the west can go laterally using blurred role of a society. In the constitution a clear statement must be included regarding the role of opposition parities and civil societies to avoid conflict of interest. Practicing an idea with out understanding the main concept is leading the political parties to mislead and use the public for political games by endangering the countries very existence. It seems to me nowadays, we, Ethiopian, are better of with out any political parties as a people. Politicians greed in the country is go beyond to the point where the countries existence to be in question.

    Inside story

    These are the facts other than the BBC and other English Medias are doing as a big propaganda work based on their own agenda and spreading it all over as if they are happy about it and know everything. the fact of the matter is they know nothing but from the Internet, fiction story and the enemies from behind where laying and misinformation are the main weapons they are working with to achieve what they are looking.

    1. Tigre + Amhara = 90%+ Christians. They have together more than 3000 years recorded history and 7556 Calendar history (Amete Alem). They have the same tradition, culture, custom, dressing, food and so on playing music with the Saint Yared Zema using Kirar, Mesenqo, kebero, Washint and so on. They are by far the best example to be a one Ethnic people than we are seeing in Ethiopia within the oromo. There is no Clan or whatever division/differences within them. They are just one and the same people with more than 3000 years recorded history together.

    2. Southern nations that are more than 56 Ethnic groups together= 85%+ Christians. 10% Muslims and 5% traditional believers. They are the patriotic Ethiopians and best example to all Ethiopians, Africans and the world how to live together for best benefit together.

    When we come to the Oromo (a name since 1976 from where it came from no one knows including themselves or may be it has to do with Ormo or Galla that are the two Ethnic groups in Kenya taking in mind the Galla Migration or brutal invasion from the corner of balie and took place between 1550-1850 right after the Muslims invasion was ended (1529-1543) and with less aggressively till 1900), it is a different matter.

    Some facts about the Oromo(a name since 1976),

    1. 68% are Muslims. 29% are Christians and 3% are traditional believers.
    2. They are hugely divided in the name of Mecha-Tulema, Arsi-negele-Jiru and Boren Ethnic groups.
    3. in the oromo(new name since 1976), Are 29 major clans, thousands sub clans and tens thousands sub sub clans which the division reaches to the village levels.

    Take Somalis for instance:
    it has 5 clans, almost 100% Muslims, speaking the same language and so on. But because of clan differences, look at them.
    The war in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Egypt, Libya and so on is happening only because of difference sects within the same religion which is Islam. In Saudi Arabia, the 25% wahabis are controlling everything the country has including the Sunni and Sufis, Shia and the likes are considers as infidels to them and must be killed or lost every right. Learn how shias are living in Saudi Arabia.

    So, how is the oromo are thinking the huge and multiple major differences within making them able even to have a kind of own nation even for a day? in some places in UK, France, Australia and the likes, Christians/ white people are not allowed even to pass through because of the Muslims. So, do these foolish are thinking the Muslims dominating religion differences within the Oromo, the three major groups(Ethnic) differences namely Mecha-tulema, Arsi-negele-Jiru and Boren, with big number clans and sub clans differences and so on, they really would live together even for a day?

    The only answer to their future they have is Ethiopia where Addis Ababa is the capital to all Ethiopians with no the city boundary is limited but expanding as much as it needs every time when it is necessary. Kilil is not a country boarder but an administration boundary created in 1993/95 and it will change anytime based on the administration change based on eth time and country benefit.


    The Ethiopian government needs to behave as the government of the whole nation. It is a government to the 80 different Ethnic groups living together as a nation having one capital city together. The nation boarders are the boundary to the capital city meaning it can expand in any direction anytime it wants based on the nation benefit.

    Therefore, it is a silly move even trying to tell them about it instead of doing what has to be done which is expanding the nation capital boundary any time when it is necessary without asking any permission from anyone but all Ethiopians are totally agree with it. We know what size Addis Ababa had till the end of Derge era. It was big enough to be called a province reaching as far 50 KM from the centre.

    Ethiopia has 90 million people. So, these few animals working as remote controls for the few criminals from abroad and in the country must be punished and eliminated including those fueling them from behind.
    Not only Addis Ababa but also all cities and towns must be expanded in any time as match it demands. Because cities and towns are the future where many people are going to live there. 85% Ethiopians are living in villages today. But within 10-25 years up to 40% of the population will live in cities and towns where Addis Ababa could reach 10 million during this period.

    Therefore expanding Addis Ababa as much as it needs is a must issue and must be done as quickly as possible without asking any permission from anyone. It is a capital city to all. Ethiopia is the country to all the citizens. No one has the right to claim any place for its own. We are not living like some wild animals but the people of the 21-century.
    If it is necessary we need to talk about the true history including the massive Galla Nomads Migration/invasion and everything has to be clear and clean once and for all concerning them and the rest.

This is your arrogant conclusion which arises from self inflated image and lack of knowledge of history.
    You wrote it emotionally to unveil your ethnic animosity and anti Oromo bias; and it requires further sources for investigation rather than jeopardizing the countries unity and security.
    I am not a historian but copier and little an explainer, and that historians have a harder job because they can be faulted for what is left out; copiers and little explainers like me can get away with printing only the juicy parts. To talk to you it requires going back to 17th century; as the histories you are claiming for had been written in 16th and 17th century. Any anti-nations and nationalities bias will not help you in salivating political power in this contemporary world except to unveil your ethnic animosity.

    Let us treat our peoples equally; Ethiopians have been living together for many centuries regardless of the ruling class’s evil intentions. In my perception the fundamental prerequisites to “national consensus and narrowing our differences” are: developing Ethiopianness, clearing the controversial history which treats some nations as aliens in their homeland through intellectual discourse in a pragmatic analysis, discussing on the most problematic residues Ethiopia’s past on the “national consensus …” and clearing a barrier that stands in the way of fruitful intellectual discourse, staying away of ethnicity and the access thereto …etc.

      Mamush! u r realy appreciated for ur well referenced response to the warmonger Solomon. Despite i belong to Amhara & Tigrian ethnics, i feel the same pain that my compatriot oromo people feel. But we should expect the unexpected. what if the guy ” solomon” is the shadow agent of the anti-Ethiopian forces with intent to distablize this nation? His remarks totally smells raciest & oldfolks mentality. Our peope must not be decived or confused by the evil motives of shadow cyber enemies.

    Frankly speaking, this unrest should be dealt with. It is not right to kill people but it does not make sense at all.

    If a need comes, the government should kill as many as possible to save the country from such none sense unrest.

    The want us to be laughed by eritreans and egyptians????

    The government should also open up to democracy and allow peace ful transition slowly. please dont be dormant.

    ” Cairo University bans 173 student activists from taking exams”

    It must apply in Ethiopia, too. Schools and universities must be the place of education, good manner and the place to become part of the useful society, not like these trash and animals brainwashed by the hateful enemies have own damaging agenda against all including these animals.

  18. Selam says:

    I am sorry for the young who lost their lives in the protests. RIP!
    It is a shame on the current government (if we can call it at all). Back in the early 90s when they killed demonstrating students in Addis, I remember the late PM justifying the use of bullets as “we don’t have tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd.” After 20 years, with all the $$ they make, they should have acquired at least some. Using bullets should not be an excuse also this time!

    Regarding the history of the Oromo, I have seen two posts, both interesting. Thanks for your contributions. It is is not easy for many non-oromos to understand the different versions written on the history of the Oromos, starting from the origin of the name. Don’t expect everyone to know YOUR side of the history.

    Instead of insulting, it would be great if they could share their side of the story in a civilized manner so that others could understand them better.

    Why are BBC and other English Medias are in Ethiopia knowing they are there by themselves only to hurt in many ways?

    This is the true reality who they are, the main agenda they have and the final achievements they are looking and working for when they are coming by themselves and allowed to move any place they reach and do anything they want in the country doesn’t belong to them and the people they don’t understand and don’t care about except pretending to get reasons for own agenda.

    Why are BBC and other English Medias are in Ethiopia?
    What is the benefit the country is getting from?
    Why is not totally stopping them knowing they are coming by themselves for their own(their government) agenda which is causing troubles, damaging the country image and doing all barbaric crimes against our country for so long in the name of free media while they are selling the news with high price. Their media empire turnover counts with billions and they are living a luxury life working for money.

    BBC is financed by the English government. BBC world service is under the foreign ministry where foreign spy agents including MI6 and diplomats are working closely with it and using for a wide range propaganda machine.

    The incident is happened hundreds kilometers away from Addis Ababa where these English media criminals are sheltering always looking something bad to affect the nation. They are like vultures and scavengers always looking bad, negative, weaknesses and death. It must be premeditated and well planned by them; of course the English embassy and so called English NGOs are also there for these kind reasons. If not how come they be able to make this video and spreading it all over the world with lies and misleading so called facts about Ethiopia CIA and MI6 painted it based on their own plan and agenda they have about Ethiopia.

    They tried the wahabis, they are trying with others including so called journalists and oppositions but all is failed. Now, they seem are trying this one with desperate mode and last option. But, for sure they will fail, this time too. We know they are desperate finding any reason to stop the Ethiopian way of government that is benefiting the people which is not looking like their neo liberal system that is benefiting only the few but they are telling the world as it is the only best system and the world has to accept it that would benefit only them.

    We know, they are looking anything to stop the Ethiopian government economic and well as political system designed to benefit the people which is not in their vocabulary. As always they are dividing the society creating reasons that are not really reasons in order to fight against each other and destroy own country. Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria and so on are destroyed by own people while calling them freedom fighters while destroying their own country for the foreign agenda, most of the time Anglo-American.

    Ukraine is now on the way towards destruction by own people while the fire starters and these neo Liberals. So, there is no news when/if they try in Ethiopia anything that would make them achieve they are looking which is destroying the nation and stopping the development that is benefiting all the citizens.

    Just let the English medias and NGOs go to hell, first and all of them and then we will see. Because almost 90% the problem Ethiopia is getting from abroad is caused directly and indirectly by the English. Avoiding them completely solves lots of problems.

    Everyone knows the Oromos are the only Ethiopian Ethnic groups that are divided within in many ways including religion where almost 70% are Muslims. Why is that some of them wearing a kind of cloth religion cross on it? Is it a kind of tricky move to get something with lies? Remember: Christians in Egypt joined the forces against Mubarak that was good for them. During that time, Muslims acted as if they were the most understandable, reasonable, respectful, peaceful and so on. But that was as usual the known Muslims behavior. When they became in the position they can control and take over Egypt, they started targeting Christians.

    We also know USA and England are using the Jihadists, wahabists, extremists and al Qaida in Syria against Asad who is by far the best choice Syrians are having. They did the same thing in Libya using al Qaida and extremists against Gadafi after it became clear he will not follow their economic policy and they will not control Libya. So, in Ethiopia they will use anyone that is ready doing anything bad they are asking against own nation.

    Be very much aware these monsters have no what so ever feeling towards black people except during the time they are playing games with dividing rule stile making the citizens fighting against each other in order they would harvest from their suffer and loss.

    How possible BBC is able to make the video despite the incident was far away from Addis Ababa? Are they part of it and making preparation beforehand including the incident itself? This is the job the Ethiopian securities and citizens have to ask and they (foreigners) must answer it truly and fully.

    Why are BBC and other English Medias in the country? What is the benefit Ethiopia is getting from? Why not sending all of them back to hell which England? As long as they are there, be sure, there will be no benefit but crimes like this; doing things don’t belong to them and they have no right to do so.

    There is no free media or free press even in their mind let alone in their world. BBC is collecting billions from the citizens and its is getting billions every year from the government. They are getting a true story for free. But they are distorting, manipulating and changing the real story according to their plan and agenda for that particular country and selling it with high price. Yet, still they are coming to other country and saying free press and free media. There is nothing free in the imperialists and capitalist rotten and decadence society as they are.

    The Prime Minster Hailemariam Desalegn will surprise all hate mongers by letting democracy flourish for the first time in history within Ethiopia in the year of 2015. PMHD knows very well with the current governemnt structure justice is unthinkable in Ethiopia. It is as if the Meles adminstration left thye cannibals a blank check and a license to kill for their feast. Just because this made the headlines it don’t mean these are the only bloods they shed within Ethiopia. The preparation had been completed to make sure the vote of the people of Ethiopia WILL be respected 100% i.e. without any limitations in 2015 by the PMHD’S part. Those Cannibal ritual followers days of feast is over. Ethiopia is being Ethiopia once again .This coming election of May 2015 is the day Ethiopians will remember for generations to come. Nomore clinging to power. People will be not led as cattle anymore. The PMHD government is working hard to divide it’s power among it’s branches eventhough it is not possible to do so while working with the cannibals as co-workers. That is why the PMHD adminstration was patiently waiting for this day of election to be able to reform the whole government even if it takes to give up power t different parties. It is clear to everyone with clear senses that the country cannot continue being under control by the cannibals. PMHD knows rather than only the Prime Minster accumulating all the power power needs to be divided by various branches within the government and before anything the first step is to respect the people’s vote regardless who they vote for . That is the real celebration awaiting Ethiopia.
    That is why Ethiopians should be careful not to fall to the trap of the cannibals and commit illegal activities that has the potential to jeopardize the democratic voting process that is about to take place. They need to be patient and see the outcome of this election before doing things they migjht regret later on. Udj, Semayawi , student Council groups and so on got the responsibility not to commit the mistake Kinijit made by giving the cannibals like Sibat Nekash (Aboy Sibihat) an excuse to fulfill their wishes of delaying Ethiopia’s chance of becoming a fully democratic country.
    The days of cannibalism must end in Ethiopia .

    There are two things we can learn from this incident. One is that the government is not going to take any chances by letting protesters get out of control given not only local politics but also regional politics. Second, opposition leaders and people who want the government to go away throw the first stone and then they go home. Because no one was hurt from the leaders during the protesters. Only innocent people has been killed and injured. If there was a causality the leaders are suppose to be on the front line. It is vary sad to see the young emotionally charged part of our society be taken advantage of again in Ethiopia’s power struggle. Universities in Ethiopia must go back to producing innovative, intellectuals that transform the country not people who can be manipulated by some selfish politicians. I think outlawing any demonstration in any campus is important to make sure universities are safe for the learning communities.

    Is there anyone as I who could believe he could go to his grave without hearing the EPDRF government admitting any wrong it made? EPDRF, not any previous Ethiopian governments, raised a new generation who feel as an outsiders beyond the government allowed “Killel” of their own. Now, they feel the security of that “killel” is in danger by the very government that promoted it. They protested. The government response: they are pawn used by those who stood against Ethiopia. Maybe they are Egyptians who are behind this protest. I have a hard time understanding any Ethiopian’s desire to stand against his own country’s interest. EPDRF might legitimately argue the party has the right prescription for the country’s political ill. But that does not automatically turns those who entertain a different politics as Ethiopia’s enemy. I think it has become a tired argument. Let me paraphrase the wise and dedicated Ethiopian, who is a member of “Arena” party, Abrha wrote about the matter. He said EPDRF is reaping what it sowed. How correct!

  25. Mama Ethiopia says:

    If you think the English and other westerners in Ethiopian in the name of journalists are really journalists, you are fool and ignorant knows nothing how and when they are doing things and what kind evil they are.

    If you think so called western Medias that are in Ethiopia including BBC in the name of BBC trust having a big office is really there to do only the media work meaning covering the news, again you are fool and ignorant. They are creating and making news about us according to their government agenda and spreading it with aim to misinform, manipulate and deny the facts but the fiction and lies they are making for their own agenda and interest.

    If you think NGO and its agents are there to do the jobs they are saying, you are fool and ignorant have no idea how, when and why they are doing things against you by coming in the country and pretending to help. They give you a little and health risky things to eat, drink, inject, swallow, wear and so on. But on the other hand they are eating, drinking, killing and destroying you.
    This is the way how they are doing things with more than 500 years experience. They colonized Africa in the name of civilized it. They enslaved the Africans after they decided not to see them as human but a kind of wild and primitive animals and use them like objects and animals until they die from.

    If you think those working in the Embassy are really doing only the diplomatic work, you are naive, weak, ignorant.

    The spy agents, mercenaries, racists and criminals are coming in the country in the name of media, journalists including freelance, NGO, Religion, investors, tourists and so on. It is all Ethiopians have to identify and be sure who is who following each and every move they are making and the day to day activities they are conducting. Because these people have no what so ever respect, understanding, care or anything positive and good towards black people and Africa.

    You can judge them for this through the life black people are having in their countries including those very well educated and capable of delivering magnificent results. Yet, they are coming far away to Africa and pretending to help the people don’t speak their language, don’t exercise their culture, tradition and so on and they have no connection with them at all in any form. Why don’t they do it with blacks in their country that are speaking their language, caring their master names, exercising their culture, tradition and they are using them since slavery if really they do care about blacks?

    There is no doubt this incident is long before started to be thought (as an option because other things they are trying to destabilize the country are failed), prepared by foreign agents that are in the country with different names including Journalists, NGO, diplomats, religion, investor, tourist and so on, and this time happened with the time related to the USA secretary visit with aim to get more attention and publicity despite its is a baseless and fault incident with no any national law supporting it but totally against.

    In Ethiopia the country land belongs to no one but all Ethiopians, equally. So, the government can do anything with the land without asking any permission from anyone when it comes to benefit all Ethiopians. Remapping Addis Ababa and other cities and towns is a must issue as the society is transforming from agriculture and village base to modernization and cities and towns. Therefore instead of supporting and facilitating the government to fasten and make easy in order to successfully implementing the city map, opposing it by itself is a national crime. Coming to demonstrate and causing troubles is a capital punishment no one tolerates it. For sure, there are criminal and hatful forces behind this and they must be exposed and punished according to the law.

    Kilil is not a country boarder but an administration boundary can change anytime based on the time and situation in order to facilitate the nation progress. We all have one country. Our country is divided in kilil not countries. This must be clear. Our country long history is our only guide. There is no history telling anyone has the right to have own country within Ethiopia. Keep it always in mind. That will never ever happen. Stop listening and manipulated by foreign enemies and their domestic collaborators i.e. criminal Banda. This is what is going on here.

    So, the foreign agents plan with this issue is baseless but another try to destabilize the country, this time using ethnic differences. But they don’t say how huge and dangerous is race, Ethnic, religion, culture, tradition, class , cast and so on differences in England and so on. 57% resident living in London are not the English and are none whites. It is the same with other cities too. It is also the same other European nations. Look USA, Canada, Australia and so on. Yet, they are talking about Ethnic differences in other country despite the people are the same race with lots of things in common. This is all part of the game to hurt all while don’t care for anyone except pretending in order to start the fire and inflaming it by being the happy spectators.

    There is no doubt foreigners mainly UK citizens are behind it. Because the only thing left for them and what they can do is not doing the right thing and prosper with hard and good work, but going all over and trying to stop others from developing fearing they will take over them. The worse thing they want to see in Africa is being totally independent from them, confident, self sufficient, developed and prosper; of course being in peace and security guaranteed are the first they are targeting knowing these are the best weapons to destabilize the nation and take them back to slavery and colonization which is the dream they have and working on it. We also allowing them to dream on our loss and able to play roles like this.

    How, when and where BBC managed to get the video? This must be investigated. This also will lead to the foreign agents that are in the country and their cheap and naive collaborators.

    It is very sad to hear such a news- scores of death of civilians through live bullet by police forces. How come the security forces turned out to shoot on demonstrators when there are several effective ways to the crack down? The gvt’s response to the mob is totaly unacceptable whether or not there were domestic and/or foreign elements who have been presumed to be involved behind the scene.

    But i m afraid the very damaging consequence coming from people like “solomon” above. hope he must be one of the foreign infitlators. probably an egyptian.

  27. AleQa Biru says:


    I expected more than this from you. Why would you quote a foreign media (BBC) to report on something going on under your nose?

    – why always depend on foreigners? you believe foreigners more than your own eyes and ears?
    – where is the background of the issue? what triggered the unrest and killings?

    You could have presented the views on both sides (government and protesters)instead of just post a youtube video edited by someone on the Internet.

  28. To begin with, why we introduced protesting into Ethiopia? is protesting an Ethiopian thing? why do we love importing everything ? In my knowledge in Ethiopia, people gather peaceful and discuss which is called wyeyt in Amharic and myeyt in Tigrignea. Normally, we Ethiopian gather under a tree discuss about a problem and then problem is addressed peacefully by sitting down. Why we fall in love with everything from outside? why people do not use their traditional method of peaceful way of solving problem than copying from outside. Is throwing stone, burning buses, burning banks, burning business ,… our culture? is this our culture? This is not an Oromo culture, this is not an amhara culture, this is not anyones culture. It is tiring when you see Ethiopians borrowing tools from outside when they have the tools with them. Protest is violent by nature. The protests blame the law enforcement and the law enforcement blame the protesters and lives get lost with everyone point fingers on the other. Throwing stones, burning properties does not solve problem but create problem only. To be honest, I am tired of Ethiopian people. I think let them kill each other and we watch from outside. No Ethiopian listen because everyone is right and everyone accuse each other. Why do not just burn your country all in all and then all of you will die. I am angry you are selfish, backward, primitives. It is heart-breaking people high now they wanted to see violence and specially those who live outside they wanted Ethiopians to kill each other? Oh my God, what a scum bag generation Ethiopian have. The main reasons we are the poorest country is not for reasons, it is because we have lost who we are and we wanted to graft everything from outside.

    The leaders are corrupt, rotten, all they do is loot and loot and destroy the country by dividing people in the name of language, race or ethnic or tribe. Here we go, you have it all. Enjoy the music, askeyami generation. You never think forward but backward. You go back in time and you live in Menelick time and spending your time chewing Menelick instead of working for today and better 2row. I am referring to all of you. I am hating Ethiopians now. You oppose development and you oppose everything? why you just do not burn the country to ashes and no Ethiopians live in it. This is what you anyway and that is why you divided the country into tribalism. You have built apartheid walls of south Africa among yourself. You have put yourself into an Oromo box, Amhara box, Tigrean box,… you can not think out of out of your tribal box. The problem is in the country is not the people, it is not the Oromos, the amhraras, it is not the Tigreans, it is the so called leaders, EPRDF, OLF,TPLF, … who have preaching us hatred, division, … all kind of things by going and forth and recycling the evils of past and recent of people mistake.

    Some of you says Oromo came from here and there and bla bla, … so what now? it does it matter where they came from? They live in the country called Ethiopia now and it is their home. And the OLF think that the rest of the people in Ethiopia must accept their version of narrow agenda and abandon their history and their culture for the sake of OLF? To be honest, I am blessed the day I landed in this beautiful country Canada where I am treated as human being. No one cares where I came from and what ethnic I belong and what I do.It is no ones business what my tribe is and when my parents came to Canada or not. It is a blessing to be in this beautiful country. I have lived years in this country and No single person has ever cared to know which ethnic I belong and what race I am or what religion I follow. This is the first time I have ever been accepted as human in my entire life because I lived in Ethiopia, it was apartheid all my life there. People treat you back ethnic and do business by ethnic. It is sickness to the core to be treated each other by ethnic and race. It is barbaric and primitive to be honest. The only time I remember about ethnic is when I visit Ethiopian website and meet Ethiopian or Somalian. If you met an Ethiopian or Somalian, the first thing they ask you is about your ethnic. It is very bad and Ethiopia has become an ugly country where ethic treatment is a norm. It is so narrow. We have a soul, our soul has no tribe or ethnic or colour or religion. The problem in this world is human being only. We creat problem and subject humanity to suffering. A bunch of Tigreans and Eritreans started an armed struggle which deprived us peaceful life for most of our lives and their so called liberation struggle consumed the lives of many souls like fire and they end up telling freedom is dividing people by ethnic and all that youth died for dividing people on the basis of ethnic. All these liberation could have been done without shedding many lives. Now OLF implementing an apartheid system in Ethiopia where a new country is created called Oromia where other Ethiopians have to pay bribes to enter and pay bribes to do business? And now addis ababa has to be frozen from development because of a new TPLF engineered Oromia. The problem is not the people now it is the system so called Ethnic Federalism where the country of about 95 tribes and about 95 million people is divided into 9 major ethnic groups and the rest is buried into ethnic majorities.

    Aye Aye Aye, ugly society. You preach us about nations and nationalities day in and day out as if Ethiopia is the only country that has different ethnics and tribes? You give too much to this ethnic indentity. It is sickening to be honest. Now you all wanted war, bloodshed? is not enough Ethiopia was in bloody war for 30 years? Why you do not focus on the problem to be addressed than fanning bloodshed? I know for sure TPLF is hell bent to divide people in Ethiopia up to secession, but why we do we allow idiots to do whatever they wanted? why we can not oppose peacefully and stop their madness? TPLF says everyone has right even for secession? what is the merit of secession? what is TPLF teaching to the nation? Will this benefit the people of Tigrai? why is TPLF obsessed with secession, tribal land partition, …? Anyway, it is hopeless to change any Ethiopian. Those who oppose they oppose everything and those who rule, they rule as they wish even if it is against the wish of the people. No Ethiopian wanted secession. But why TPLF and OLF are obsessed with secession ? I am tired of that countries people; it is heart-breaking.

    I think there is more background information to this coming from the government both from the city planners and administration from addis city and Oromia Region. Though it would have been much more pertinent last week, would have helped tame emotions amist a confusion and could have avoided the deaths, a coverage by AT might still be relevant background to the readers. city planners have stated their objectives and is quiet a different version than what initiated the demo to begin with. But then Kuma Demeksa states that there is a body that has the power to alter regional lines. His faulty parallelism equating addis-Oromia to Europe-eu did not help. Many people have died for a reason that even after the governments explanation concludes as a doublespeak. Considering the aray of misunderstanding, I would not be surprised if uprisings occurs over again either in Oromia or other places where city expansion/integrated planning is going to occurre. This is a serious issue because it is a departure from regional lines as boundaries to nations-nationalities, to one that views boundaries as administrative lines alterable anytime as in Derge and Haileselassie Era.

    Hi Oromos

    I think the current regional administration of Oromia are in a better position to protect thier regional territory and lands according to the constution. But the former regional administrations of the region has sold AKAKI, BOLE BULBULA and many KEBELES OF LAFTO. So Oromo students has to fight to bring these formerly taken by AA.

    It is a constitutional right Nations and nationalities have the right to administer their lands. The land of AA belongs to Oromia.

    First of if there are any Oromo representative in the parliament if there was true democracy they should have debate before any rumors spread that was smart politics .

    In the west when the economy going bad they start writing and radio debat about immigration to avoid any critics from the public.

    They start creating hate so people getting busy.

    In Ethiopia three is no such debate .

    Be modern give me some thing I can be proud show me hospitality then people become so eager to speak you language to know more about and be proud of yourself read teach you family what the Oromo did to this country.
    Amharic taking our land so oromigna no one will speak.

He should never be seen in the vicinity of these descendants of mass killers. Next time I see him I am going to express my outrage to him. We do not need Naftegnas’ help. We have already liberated Oromia 99%. I just received word from back home that every Oromo member in the defense forces have defected and liberated 100% of Illu, Wollegaa, Bale, Southern Sidamo, and Haraghe. 99% of Shewa is under their control with the exception of Finfine. All Tigre and Amhara(Except the Gojjames) members of the defense forces have fled and sought refuge in their homelands. Gojjame soldiers have taken side with us and we will help them in the liberation of their homeland from the Tigrayans and Amharas. I have told you Oromia will be an independent nation in 2014. Did I lie? Here it is.

      Dear sirs,

      I apperciate those who forward the right comment, this is football game the lost can say what ever he/she likes.we have no spare time to discuss about the issue dead pliticis of naftegna-die with ignorance …the fact that the Oromo’s are Kushitic is self explanatory we are from east africa and money more proves. We didnt say we are semetic- like u did, as if you are from south yemen. What ever you call it, the name could arguably negotiated but we are indeginous of east africa prodiminately Ethiopia,kenya, Djibout …etc. We know how are barking (under the pretext of maintaining Ethiopia unity),shame on you when consider the majority like a setteler. Now, more than ever understood the fool calculation of Amhara elites. You better go to your region and develope the poorest of the world than advocating for Ethiopia. I understand clearly Djibout has gone, Eretrea too ..ur feer is the other country Oromia or ogaden. Specially your concern is about Oromia because this region contribute 65% of GDP.
      The current student question is about identity, no one oppose the development but the intention, the development of addis benefit Oromia than any region in Ethiopia because addis in the heart of Oromia. If you are truely Ethiopian denounce praising Menelik, who left us landlocked by selling Djibouti to france in exchange of his simplest items.
