    Well Awramba Times, why don’t you post the press statement that you claim have received for the readers to see?

    በአስቂኝ መልክ የተነገረ ነገር ግን እየፈፀሙት ያለ

    ጉዳዩ እንዲህ ነው፣

    ይሆናል ብሎ በመገመት አምኖበትም ይሁን ወይም ከመንገድ በመውጣት ተሳሰቶ በብሄር ፖለቲካና ክልል ስም ተወክሎ ከህወሀት ኢህአዴግ ጋር የተቀላቀለ አንድ ሰው ውጪ ሀገር መጥቶ ከሀገሩ በበለጠ ነፃነት እየተሰማውና ክብር እየታየው ባለበት ወቅት አንድ የኢሳት ጋዜጠኛ ያየውና ያ በፊት የሚያውቀው ጓደኛውን መልሶ ያገኘው እንደሆነ እየመሰለው ሰላምታ ይለዋወጣሉ፡፡ ከግላዊ የሃሳብ ልውውጦች ወጣ በማለት ስለሀገር አንዳንድ ነገሮችን በሚጠይቀው ጊዜ ግን ልክ ኢትዮጲያ ያለ እንደሆነ በመገመት በፍራቻና በጥርጣሬ የተሞላ ሆነ፡፡ የኢሳት ጋዜጠኛም ይህን አንደተረዳ የራሱ ያልሆነ አሁን ያለበት ውጪ ሀገር ረግጠውት ሊመያልፉ የሚሰጠው ሰባዊ መብትና ሀላፊነት የራስ ከሆነች የህወሀት ኢትዮጲያ እጅግ የተለየ እንደሆነና ወዳጅን የሚወድና እንግዳንም የሚያለምድ እንደሆነ ይነግረዋል፡፡ ሰውየውም የዚህን እውነታ አስቀድሞ እያወቀ ነው ህወሀት በአሱ ላይ ያሳደረበት ፍርሀት፣ ጥርጣሬና ጭንቅ ውጪ ሀገር ድረስ እንደ ራሱ ጥላ ተከትሎት በመምጣት ራሱን እንዲስትና የሚያውቀውን እንደማያወቅ የሆነ፡፡

    ይህ በዚህ እንዳለ የኢሳት ጋዜጠኛ ሀገርንና አስተዳደሩንም በተመለከተ ለቃለ መጠይቅ ይጠይቀዋል፡፡ ሰውየው ግን ወደ ሀገር ቤት የሚመለስ ስለሆነና ከውጪ ሀገር ድረስ መጥተውም ይጎዱኛል እያለ የሚጠራጠር ስለሆነ ቅድመ ሁኔታወች ይሰተካከሉ ዘንድ ሀሳቦችን ያቀርባል፡፡ ከዚህም ውስጥ ቃለ መጠይቁ በአየር ላይ የማይተላለፍ ከሆነ በተጨባጭ ያለውን ሁሉ እውነቱን ለመናገር፤ ነገር ግን የሚተላፍ ከሆነ ያው እንደተለመደው ያ ሲሳሳት ብቻ እውነት የሚያወራውንና ህወሀት ሙሉ በሙሉ የሚቆጣጠረውን የኢትዮጲያ ብሮድካስቲንክ ኮርፖሬሽን የሚሉትን የፕሮፓጋንዳ ሜዲያ እንደሚደረገው ሁሉ እውነቱን ደብቄ ውሸቱን በማውራት የሌለውን ጥሩ እንዳለና ያለውን መጥፎ ደግሞ እንደሌላ እያደረገሁ ነው መንግስትን በማወደስ መልስ የምሰጥ ይላል፡፡

    የኢሳት ጋዜጠኛም ህወሀት ከስልጣን ከወደቀ በኋላ እንደሚተላለፍ በማሳመን ይገልፅለትና በዚህ ይስማማሉ፡፡

    ጥያቄ አንድ

    በአንድ በኩል የሀገሪቱ ኢኮኖሚ እያደገ ነው ይባላል፡፡ በሌላ በኩል ደግሞ በ21ኛው ክፍለ ዘመን የሚመሩትን ህዝብ ለመመገብ ባለመቻል የምግብ እርዳታ ይለመናል፡፡ ታዲያ ያን እያደግን ነው የሚያሰኛቸውን ትርፍ ለህዝብ ሳይደርስ ከመሀል ላይ የሚጠልፍ ሀይል አለ ማለት ነውን፣ የአንድ ሀገር እድገት የሚታይ በወሬ ሳይሆን በተጨባጪ ሲሆን ይህም በህዝቡ አኗኗርና በመሰረታዊ ልማቶች መሟላት ነው፡፡

    መልስ፣ ምን ብየ ለመመለስ የሚያሰቸግር ነው አለና በቦታው ከሌለ ሌላ ሶስተኛ ሰው ጋር የሚያወራ እየመሰለ አንድ የትግርኛ ቃል ጣል አደረገ፡፡
    በዚህ ጊዜ የኢሳት ጋዜጠኛ ትንሽ ደንገጥ አለና ወዲያወኑ ደግሞ በመመለስ ነቃ፣ ደፈርና ቆጣም ብሎ ይህ ኢሳት እንጂ የህወሀት ሜዲያ አይደለም፡፡ የሜዲያን አሰራር ህግ የሚያውቅና ደንብ የሚያከብር ነው፡፡ ከዚህም ውስጥ ያልተበረዘና ያልተከለሰ አንድ ወጥ የሆነ ቋንቋ ማውራት ግደ የሚል ነው፡፡ በአማርኛ ከሆነ አማርኛ ብቻ ነው፡፡ እንግሊዝና ከሆነም እንግሊዝኛ ብቻ ነው፡፡ እንግሊዝኛ ለማውራት ከሆነ ግን ከማንም በበለጠ እኛ በውጪ ያለን እናወራለን፡፡ ቁም ነገሩ ግን ይህ ሳይሆን በሜዲያ ህግ አንድ ጥርት ያለ ቋንቋ መጠቀም ግድ የሚል ነው፡፡ የህወሀት ፐሮፓጋንዳ ሜዲያ ግን ሁሉም ውሸት ስለሆነ ምንም ለውጥ የለውም ብለው ይመስላል አማርኛ ይሁን ወይም እንግሊዝኛ ሳይታወቅና ያ ሁሉ ድካምና ልፍለፋ ውጤቱ ምን እንደሆነ ሳይታይ ከንቱ ድካም ሆኖ የሚቀር አሳፋሪና አዋራጅም የሜዲያ ዘሰራር ነው፡፡ ካለ በኋላ

    ለመሆኑ እንዴት ትግርኛ ለማወቅ ቻልህ፡፡ አንተ የተወለድህ ደቡብ ኢትዮጲያ ነው፡፡ የምትኖር ደግሞ ሀዋሳ ነው፡፡ ይለዋል
    አይ ከነሱ ጋር ስብሰባ በምናካሂድበት ጊዜ ሁሉም ነገር እነሱ እንዳሉትና እንደሆኑት እየሆነ የሚካሄድና የሚፈፀም ስለሆነ እንደፈለጋቸው ነው የሚሆኑብን፡፡ ከኛ ድብቅ የሆነ አጀንዳ ሲኖራቸውና በኛ ላይ ስድብም ሊሆን ይችላል ሀሳብም ሲለዋወጡ ሌላው እንዳይሰማቸው ዞር ብለው በትግርኛ የሚያወሩ ስለሆኑ በዚህ መልክ ከነሱ እሰማሁ የለመድሁት ነው፡፡ ከአህያ ጋር የምትውል ላም ፈስ ትማራለች ይባላል ይህ እኮ ነው፡፡
    እና የሚያወሩትን ሁሉ ትሰማዋለህ ማለት ነውን፡፡
    አዎ ሁሉንም እሰማቸዋለሁ፡፡ ግን አቅምም ሆነ መብት ስለሌለኝ ስምቼ ውስጤን እያቃጠለኝ ዝም ማለት እንጂ ሌላ ማድረግ ግን ለጊዜው አልችልም፡፡
    ታዲያ ይህን እነሱ ያውቃሉ

    እንዴ እንዴ ማን ሞኝ አለ፡፡ ይህንማ በፍፀም ለነሱ ቀርቶ አነሱን ለሚያውቅም አላሳውቅም፡
    ለምን
    በወለቃይት እንደሚያደርጉት ሁሉ አንተ ትግርኛ ስለምትናገር ሀዋሳም የትግራይ ክልል ነው ብለው በራሴ ቦታ ባዕድ አድርገው መውጫና መግብያ እንዲሁም መነሻና መድረሻ ቢያሳጡኝስ፣ እያለ እየመለሰለት እንዳለ ጋዜጠኛው መሳቅ ሲጀምር ሰውየውም በመሳቅ የህወሀትን ነገር በሀዘን ሳይሆን በሳቅ አሳለፉት፡፡

    USA has no moral ground to be concerned about Ethiopia, instead it should clean up its own mess before it is engulfed in it. Ethiopia will know what to do.

    USA is doing just a lip service.

    However, it can change in any moment upside down based on the situation on the ground. Out of about 3 million Diasporas, may be the maximum of 5% are TPLF’s supporters. 95% are not. So, this 95% Diaspora which is more than 2.8 million must unite and do actively and effectively the jobs that are essential including contacting foreign governments such as USA, Russia, EU, AU, Japan and most importantly China.

    China is the TPLF’s care taker and the Mother Teresa type of step mother. When you go by through years, behalf for few years, all Ethiopian ambassadors in China are the Core TPLF rebel members including that Evil criminal so called Tigry Kilil vice president who was recently in USA humiliated and shaken from fear caused by brave and patriotic Ethiopians inside the DC airport.

    Diasporas must get busy doing the information, politics, propaganda and other necessary jobs that are more effective than facing TPLF with gun and bombs while the citizens are not armed. ESAT is doing the most valuable jobs and is now officially the most watched TV and listen radio among Ethiopians including any media channel located in Ethiopia.

    Heroic, wise and smart Ethiopians’ sisters such as Reyot Alemu, Ereste of Wolkite Gonder, Birtukan Mekdesa and many more not mentioned by name have to play their roles here as the west gives more attentions to the brave, determine and wise females like them.

    Watch out the spoilers. Birhanu Nega is one of them. His position and effective jobs are not happening by being relaying on Issayas but using his Title as professor doing paper and talking jobs to [persuade foreign powers). How come an Ethiopian with a normal mind even think Issayas would help him against TPLF? That will never happen in a million year. Soon, they will unite against the rest. However, Eritrea has a huge Time bomb inside and will explode the moment the two Evils TPLF and EPLF get together again. ELF is there around feeling stronger and determine than ever before as the Beja, Rashida, Saho, Afar, Kunama, Liben and Nara do.

    EPLF in Eritrea is like TPLF in Ethiopia. It is one against the rest in both nations.

    Watch out the spoilers and naives. Expose and avoid them from the public struggles.

    You must follow the situation very closely at home and inform constantly foreign powers about the TPLF agazi crimes against the Gonder and Bahir Dar people, too. Tell them also about the issues related to the wolkite. Show them the historical documents telling Wolkite being always part of Gonder and Tekeze River is the natural boarder between Tigry and Gonder since the time of memorial.

    Let me say what one Philosopher said , I have never met an animal think like a human but I met a human think like an animal. This saying works to all tplf members.

  7. digital trace says:

    The above is the work of TPLF cadres.it is not from the USA embassy.
    If it is genuine , where is the source????

  8. Gegna says:

    Don’t worry USA time is come, you see we Ethiopians full of Gegna come & save this killers if you can , but I don’t think so you go with flowwwwwwwwwwwww.

    “we recognize that many of the demonstrations took place without authorization and urge all parties to support those who are seeking constructive dialog and peaceful solutions” the statement said.

    ”demonstrations took place without authorization” this is not USA business and the embassy never issued such careless statement.

    “In a press statement sent to Awramba times late this afternoon”

    another give away,another complete lie.
    We are sending the above so-called message from USA embassy for confirmation.

  10. Noah Samara says:

    ESAT and Oromo Media Networks are the root of all evil that are plaguing Ethiopia. These two institutions led by the culprits Berhanu Nega and Jawar Mohammed respectively are ready to steal people’s money and loot people’s properties by creating unrests nationwide. Berhanu and Jawar’s crew even tried to start protests in the nations capital Addis Ababa last week, with heavy disappointment to the organizers the response from the Addis Ababa people was very minimal . The people of Addis Ababa know the evil intentions of Berhanu learning from 2005 incident . . Plus Addis Ababa got more exposure to the media and to the development that is being done by the government than any other places in the country that is why the Addis Ababa people showed that they are 100% behind the government by abandoning the protests that lasted for one afternoon only . On the other hand many of the Amhara and the Oromo regions are susceptible due to the lack of communications in the area . they went on protesting by numbers for long time . Addis Ababa did not fall for these ESAT and Oromo Media Networks destructive plans while Amhara and Oromo regions did.
    That is why all that claim to be Ethiopian journalists need to create mass communications network in the Amhara and Oromo regions by making information flow faster and educate the people of Oromo and Amara even if it means going around with loud speakers in the area. It can be done in these days of technology if we all work together to make it happen. .

  11. As that aid money is so vital fro its existence, I don’t think your TPLF bosses would appreciate your attitude towards the USA.

  12. Observer says:

    It is common knowledge for all Ethiopians the roles played by USA in removing the infamous Derg and bringing to power the current rulers.
    Ethiopia is at a cross roads now. The USA has the responsibility to put all pressures possible on the ruling elites to open up for peaceful negotiations with all oppositions and public at large before it is too late .I hope they have taken good lessons from recent past in the Arab world .

  13. Addis says:

    Unless the west develop Ethiopia the country will be empty with every Ethiopian going in exile to the west. You see all the problems the Syrians created in Europe and imagine how much problem the Ethiopians will create if the west doesn’t give them aid. There are thousands going in exile out of Ethiopia each year trying to reach the west where life quality is much higher . We the educated Ethiopians with power in the west reverse these effect of Ethiopians migrating to the west by educating and empowering Ethiopians in the west through constant convincing the Ethiopian diasporas to go back to Ethiopia and try to live a comfortable life there by making their experiences in the west harder while giving aid money only to those that go back to Ethiopia. Basically aid money is given to get these Ethiopians in the west go back to Ethiopia and to prevent more Ethiopians coming to the west.We don’t want to be brutal like the (Arab Saudi Tycoons ) to kick Ethiopians out of the west. The Ethiopian-Saudis ordered the brutal attack against the Ethiopians but the Ethiopians in the west convince Ethiopians to go back by arranging for them to receive aid.

  14. Wolde Woubneh says:

    Enough ! THE CURRENT BRUTALITY IS INHUMAN.
    THE Ethiopian people should retain power from here on. Any party mature enough to lead a nation can compete politically and win an election. The government formed is an employee of the people. It can retain power until the next election. If the people like the elected government it can stay in power for a 2nd term. The term limit is upto 2 terms. Any citizen of ethiopia from any ethnicity or a combinations of ethnicities has equal rights. No ethnicity should have dominance over any other ethnicity. Every body has equal rights.
