    The western so called scholars, agencies, organizations, institutions and so on that are always looking anything bad and negative in order to cause troubles in Africa started within the country and also between nations are talking lots of shit for so long about Ethnicity and religion differences in Ethiopia as if it is bigger, deeper and stronger than other African nations. The reason way they are doing this targeting Ethiopia is because of they have no other things to talk propaganda negatively about Ethiopians in order to create divisions, disunity, conflicts and so on within.

    However, the truth is that Ethiopia is one of the few if not the one nation in Africa has less Ethnic groups based on the number of the population proportion. Even Somalis has not only different Ethnic groups but also races with different Bantu Ethnic groups living there came to Somalia from Kenya, Tanzania and Malawi, as slaves by the Arabs and Farsi. They are predominantly all over in southern and western Somalia.

    Ethiopia with 90 million populations has less than 80 Ethnic groups while a little Eritrea with 4.5 million has 9 Ethnic groups. Sudan with 34 million populations has more than 450 Ethnic groups with different races and religion sects where Sufis are the majorities while the fanatic Sunnis minorities affiliated with those saying are Arabs are controlling the nation based on sharia law. Egypt has different Ethnic groups including five different Nubian Ethnic groups, Berbers, different Beja Ethnics and most importantly different races.

    Tanzania with 56 million populations has 130 Ethnic groups while Cameroon, 255. Nigeria 500, Congo 700+, Kenya 60+, Uganda 55+ South Sudan 63+ Mozambique, South Africa, Ghana, and all African do have much more Ethnic groups than Ethiopia comparing with population proportion and Ethiopians are living together as one nation for hundreds years before the rest were created as states by the colonizers. Algeria, Morocco, Libya and others are also have different Ethnic groups where different Berbers Ethnic groups are the majorities and there are also different Africans Ethnic groups living there.
    However, in Western Europe, North America, Australia and so on are living all human races, Ethnic groups, religions and so on. India has almost all human races and 2153 Ethnic groups so far. It is the same almost in all Asian nations including Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Burma, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh as it is all over central and Southern America and so on. So African Ethnic differences must not be seen as an obstacles within and the opportunities to the enemies using as weapon to affect the nations while the rest are divided not only with all human Ethnicities but also almost all human races are living in every nation beyond Africa including western Europe and north America.

    When we come to Sudan, the situation is very complicated and different to one another within. Darfur itself has more than 67 Ethnic groups. Those so called Arabs but look like Ethiopians are also living in Darfur in few numbers. In Northern Sudan are living different kinds of Nubian ethnic groups having own long history. North East Sudan are living different Beja ethnic groups. Eastern Sudan are living different Ethnic groups with different races that are Africans, Ethiopians/Arabs. Southern Sudan including the two cordoffans, Nubians (black Africans from the Nuba mountains alone with 50 Ethnic groups) and so on are living hundreds Ethnic groups in total.

    The race and Ethnic compositions in Sudan and the religion that is standing as a big burden on the population day today’s life through Sharia is making the situation in Sudan very dangerous and complicated. Black Africans are about 70% while Arabs/Ethiopian look likes and others are about 30% in Sudan. The Religion that is making Sudan the place of hell is functioning based on Sharia from the 7th century. This makes the population to be divided further including in religion lines where the majority Sufis are against the Wahhabi type of sharia.

    If Sudan is able to get any future, removing Sharia and religion as a whole from the politics and institutions and organizations including at schools must be the quickest and first priority to do so. Then introducing federal system could be another reason to try. Ethiopia with 90 million people has only about 70+ Ethnic groups where the vast majorities look like the same naturally and are living together as a nation with under Flag for many years including during the time when all nations in Africa where under colonization and before that during slavery, too.

    Therefore, Sudan that is created in 1956 as an independent nation with more than 500 Ethnic groups together with south Sudan(while North Sudan has more than 450 Ethnic groups today) must stop trying to build a nation based on a religion fundamentalism doctrine. Because this will not serve the future of the nation but creating hostilities and huge differences within in the name of religion that would affect badly the nation along side with race and Ethnic differences all over the country.

    President Bashir needs to denounce and abolish the sharia law in Sudan if really he is looking to see a united, stable and peaceful Sudan. Let the people be free from the mental, physical, social, cultural and economical sharia imprisonment that is worse than any punishment a human being can face. He also needs to introduce a federal system including at least three separate administrations in Darfur. Or else, the situation in Sudan will get worst by day in a way the nation will be disintegrated and becomes the way she was before the colonizers came there and created the country with the name Sudan (Black).
    Remember: What is Khartoum Today was part of the Abyssinians including during the Ezana era. Some Sudanese are not only look like the Abyssinians but the direct descendents of the Abyssinians that were ruling the region during the Aksumite kingdom reached as far as to Yemen and others till the first half of the 6 century crossing the sea and ocean.

    I hope our own butcher of the 1970’s Mengistu faces the same fate sooner if not later. He is now somewhere in Zimbabwe worrying instead which filet mignon he will have at the dinner table tonight when mothers, fathers and loved ones of tens of thousands innocent victims he callously butchered without an iota of due process in a court of law and when the blood of millions of our brothers and sisters in Eritrea, Tigray, Gojam and many parts of Ethiopia he mercilessly slaughtered throughout his tenure as the head of the State. I hope I will live long enough to see that day.
