    Dear Dawit,
    Thanks for sharing this report.
    I think very similar accusation should be labelled against those in the US government who are giving a blind eye to those who are fanning fire and bloodshed in Ethiopia from cities in the US. It is very unfortunate that the government of Ethiopia could not strongly request the apprehension and prosecution of those who are bragging about the instigation and coordination of turmoil in Ethiopia using media from cities of the US. if anyone residing in Ethiopia was doing this type of violation against the people of the USA, they would be apprehended or droned to death by now.
    So, if the Ethiopian government looks around when its institutions like the Ethiopian Embassy in the US are not getting full respect and protection then the consequence is for those groups to feel emboldened and continue to destabilizing Ethiopia. I believe that Ethiopia should use its leverage on its fight against terrorism and other cooperation to strongly demand for action against those who are leading the effort of destabilizing Ethiopia. Turmoil and instability in Ethiopia can not be in the interest of the Ethiopian people or the US government as both sides have a lot to lose from that. So, why is the US government giving a blind eye to those who are fomenting havoc in Ethiopia from cities in the US including Washington DC and Minneapolis? I don’t know. But, instead of helping to improve the situation by bringing those who are responsible for the prevailing situation in Ethiopia to court of law, the US government put out a travel warning that says “On October 9, the Government of Ethiopia declared a State of Emergency in response to ongoing anti-government protests throughout the country. Reports of burned vehicles, damaged buildings, and citizen deaths have spurred the government to address the tumultuous political situation; however the specific implications of the decree have yet to be announced. In addition to significant disruptions to road travel, severely limited communications have caused some OSAC constituents to consider relocating employees currently in Ethiopia or postponing travel to the country.”
    As a US citizen of Ethiopian origin who just returned from business trip in Ethiopia, I found this to be a very disappointing response!

    Dear admin,
    I just saw the report from the government of Ethiopia accusing Egypt of forcing the declaration of the state of emergency in Ethiopia in your and some Ethiopian websites. Please consider posting the below.

    Do the Ethiopian government and people deserve better response from the US?

    Good move by Ethiopia, it is about and a perfect time. Egypt has to disassociate itself from all Ethiopian enemies openly must denounce and stop supporting anti Ethiopian Terrorists operating from Egypt.

    i am not a fan or supporter of the Ethiopian ethnic based government, because it is the government itself the architect of its primitive, toxic ethnic based policy that we have witnessing today. The Idea is nothing but to demonize Ethiopianism, it is a well but evil plane as a means to create ethnic conflict.

    Now the damage is done, the Ethiopian government must quash this madness.
    Must stop selling Ethiopian land to Arabs, I mean All Arabs.
    The government must stop issuing ID cards that that force Ethiopian citizens to be Identified by this bullshit Ethnicity.
    Every Ethiopia is an Ethiopian.
    The Id must show only , The name , the year and place birth, current place of residence. THAT IS ALL.
    Every Ethiopian must leave peacefully any where in Ethiopia.
    Oromos, Amharas, Tigrians, Gambelans and all displaced Ethiopians must be given unconditional right a full commitment and support to return and claim their land and property BY DECREE, not by pep talk promise of a not at all to be trusted government official.

    The government must establish a constitutional Citizens and the Nation Guardian Higher House, with a power above the elected governing party.
    Representative of Former, Current, senior political figures from all political parties including foreign based opposition groups to represent all regions of Ethiopia. (I am sure Birhanu Nega will like this presidency)
    All political prisoners must be freed unless they are proven with no doubt they are Arab dogs.
    The government must openly declare any opposition party who are in exile must be given amnesty to come to their homeland Ethiopia and participate in a free and fare election, where the ruling EPRDF party also as a political party can accommodate and participate.

    This a so called Temporary government bullshit Idea that is going around within diaspora community is a made in Arab and western land speculators plot to divide and destroy Ethiopia.
    Ethiopians can produce food, flowers, fruits of all kinds and can run and operate cattle and dairy farms.
    Stop the agenda of destroying Ethiopia. Get ready for the next election, If any of you win the election and you have a chance to develop Ethiopia.
    We Ethiopians do not want and must not allow political movements and crook government officials to destroy our homeland our only motherland.
    Ethiopia does not need a self reforming government, talk only government.

    Deal and cut the neck of the corrupts and tackle corruption, by action like the great president of ThePhilippine President Rodrigo Duterte . (forget human-right’s false prophets messengers cry when it comes to Ethiopian interest)
    God bless Ethiopia and Ethiopians
    Dagna.

    The 70 thausand dollars monthly bill for ESAT tv satellite to Russia company is come from Egypt through Germany?
    Germany was the long-time supporter of OLF too..
    A month ago Sisi was told to Egyptians on TV about the GERD “Trust me, just listen me and trust me”.
    That’s why Jawar Supporters steeped on Ethiopian flag while waving Egptians in Cairo and Minnesota….. Last week also express his support to OLF and Gim7 on media. Eritrea was weapkn and cash-tranfer tunnel to Gonder and Oromia region.
    Eri-EPRDF knows well everything. That’s the intent of domestic Shaebian in power of help less country Ethiopia. Tigreans are primarily targeted on the ongoing catastrophe. This Egypt and Eritrean strategy next step is on Amhara peaple. Tottaly to destroy Ethiopia. That’s why Jawar /WAHAbI/ promissed to give more share of Nile water to Egypt.
    The time is running for real Tigrean politicians to take power and to organised Tigreans to defend themselves. Eri-EPRDF’ts has enough money in China and Malisia banks. And send thier children to china universties. Good luck

    I have no any knowledge if Egypt is trying to destabilize Ethiopia. In the meantime, I do not discount the Ethiopian’s government claim. In fact, given Egypt’s desire that Ethiopia should not build the Nile dam, the Ethiopian government accusation be possibly true. But Egypt could not create the political environment. The Ethiopian government has created it. Egypt it seems is trying to exploit. Egypt knows Ethiopia is in tribal politics. In a country where tribal politics is supreme, adversaries try to exploit that very weakness. Well, do not tell for the farsighted TPLF founders it is really a weakness.

    Further more Probably might come directly to military attacking from Asmara airport and commandos from Sauth Sudan. Now Egypt recently has good relationship with all Ethiopian neghbors.
    The good news is the recent argument of Saudi and Egypt on Syria vote. Egypt is in economy disaster. Might not dare to spend for military expense. But Egypt has plan any measure to the end…… Gim7 are sold thier dignity for money. I dont wonder about Jawar /wehabi/ nor OLF…..

  12. Desta says:

    EPRDF must blame itself and take responsibility. 25 years of mismanagement , lack of democracy, denying the basic and fundamental rights of citizens, indifferent to written constitution, rampant corruption and looting the country ANGERED most citizens. Most Ethiopians were /are fed up with incompetent and corrupt rulers.

    These condition created a fertile ground for EGYPT and Shabia ( former allies of TPLF) to exploit it.
    EPRDF sets the stage for Egypt and others to destroy Ethiopia.

    Now, As always, omnipotent , know- it- all, TPLF is externalizing all problems. It does not admit its mistakes . It does not learn and grow. stack in the past. defies evolution.

    As the result, we all are paying the price, probably lose our common home, Ethiopia. This is what We get from TPLF, which lacks many things. Unfit to rule. It didn’t happen with our former rulers.

    How come they did not see that EGYPT may exploit the situation? IS it not the responsibility of the government to protect and defend the country? what were they doing?
    If there were real democracy in the country, they would have lost their jobs in overnight for their incompetency but they made sure democracy doesn’t exist in Ethiopia.
    Most Ethiopians just want to get rid of them. the problem is that what is next?

  13. Ethiopian says:

    For once I have lost hope in the people of that region…it is a cursef region with cursed populous that we can not even learn from recent history…a president who governs over 90 million has no shame in publicly admitting Egyptian intelegence have outsmarted his government. …the funny thing is there is nothing inelegant Egyptians have done since they have puplicly proadcasted all the clues….although the people who govern Ethiopia are too stupid to see it…for the gready Ethiopian rulers what matters is the few dollars Egyptians propose in the name of “investment”….they have even a resident distablizer who works with foreign office..how stupid can one get….

    Which country supplies free military aid weapons to Egypt at the sametime to Ethiopia?? YOU KNOW IT>

    http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2016/05/egypt-us-military-aid.html

    Numerous Ethiopian soldiers are afraid to step on Meles Zenawi’s picture because they are possessed by this Church of Satan star pentagram that is imprinted on the flag along with the Meles Zenawi’s picture . Numerous Ethiopian soldiers change their decision to resign by willing to stay killing innocent people for the next seven years instead of walking out from their last day at work by stepping on Meles Zenawi’s pictures. The TPLF Satan worshipers ask them if you choose to walk out from your job when your contract is over you have to step on Meles Zenawi’s picture and many soldiers renew their contract just for the reason of not stepping on the picture. If this don’t tell anyone that the soldiers are possessed you need to examine yourself too because you are close to getting possessed or already is.

    Church of Satan headquarters is based in which country ?? YOU KNOW IT.
    Who is supplying almost all of the bullets for Woyane TPLF soldiers to kill innocent Ethiopians ?? YOU KNOW IT.

    USA should clean itself from inside out to be the real USA they claim with a motto “In G*D WE THRUST ” then maybe then Ethiopians will be able to listen to them . Ethiopian Americans got a responsibility to make that happen. Here in the Caribbean we Ethiopian Caribbeans are active in the Caribbean politics even in countries which don’t claim to be democratic as USA so why is it the Ethiopian Americans failing to influence the American politics through their rights of a democratic process.
    They should remove that pentagram Satan symbol star everywhere it is imprinted. .
    Meles Zenawi pictures should be removed from billboards and every public places in Ethiopia too. Currently there are more billboards of Meles Zenawi . Meles Zenawi’s billboards are the record high in numbers and size of all billboards ever hanged in the country ever.
    . I heard people are worshiping the Meles Zenawi picture since his billboards are all over in the people’s face. Even the soldiers that gave their resignation letter when their seven years term expired are renewing for another seven years only because their bosses ask them to step on Meles Zenawi’s picture on their way out from their last day at work .

    the last thing Ethiopia can afford to do is upsetting the Egyptian in open… even if we know Egypt supporting the opp. we should not accusing them in open then they start helping in open why not them believe their advantage will work while they were busy helping the dying horse oromo and Amhara we would have finished the Nile dam

  16. ethoash says:

    in the main time we should give land for Egyptian in oromia and Amhara region for investment for of tax and lease this way if the oromo burn the Egypt investment then they going to answer to their boss their money will be cut off which is goooooooooooood for Ethiopia

    giving the Egypt land in Nile river industrial zone is a good idea because before the Nile dam is finished the industrial zone must be completed to buy the power…. as i said giving the Egypt land in Amhara and oromo region have many advantage the olf CAN burn it …. second if they start fighting with Egyptian investor saying land grab then we set and relax and watch the show

    Short Script from Sputnik International.

    The regime change riots and torching of foreign companies which preceded Ethiopia’s imposition of a six-month-long state of emergency have more to do with “waging a Hybrid War against China’s Maritime Silk Road and its Horn of Africa component” than they do with airing out local socio-political grievances.

    Stopping the Silk Road

    © AFP 2016/ FREDERIC J. BROWN New Center of Power: ‘China Insisting on Global Governance Reforms’ The US’ chief geostrategic imperative in the 21st century is to stop China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) vision of global infrastructure connectivity via the New Silk Roads. Having failed in its Wolfowitz-Brzezinski unipolar task of preempting the rise of Russia, China, and Iran and the multipolar strategic convergence between them, the US is now racing to preserve its fading global hegemony by orchestrating a series of Hybrid Wars all across Afro-Eurasia in order to force a chaotic wedge between them and possibly even entrap these countries in destructive quagmires. Furthermore, the countries which have been targeted for Hybrid War are also geostrategic transit states for pivotal multipolar transnational connective infrastructure projects, be it the Eurasian Land Bridge that was envisioned to run through Ukraine or the Friendship Pipeline that was supposed to go from Iran to Iraq and Syria. The reason why grand projects such as these are being targeted is because they are the key catalysts in peacefully constructing the emerging Multipolar 

    Ethiopia is surprisingly just as significant as both of these aforementioned Hybrid War battlegrounds are because of the importance that China attaches to it as its closest partner in Africa and the forecasted role that it will play along the Maritime Silk Road half of OBOR. Ethiopia’s nearly 100 million people function as a large consumer market for China’s overcapacity production and a promising labor force for its outbound investment. Additionally, President Xi Jinping previously declared that there are similarities between the African and Chinese Dreams, meaning that China identifies itself with Africa and accordingly wants to help the continent rise up just like the People’s Republic began doing decades ago, and OBOR is the vehicle for achieving this mutually beneficial objective.

    The obvious stumbling block, however, is that Ethiopia has been landlocked ever since Eritrea’s secession, which is why China invested approximately $3.4 billion to build a state-of-the-art railroad from the Red Sea port of Djibouti to the hinterland capital of Addis Ababa.

    This New Silk Road is of prime importance because it finally allows the Chinese-Ethiopian Strategic Partnership to flourish to its fullest multipolar potential, moving past the political realm and into the tangible one of real-sector commercial engagement. Ethiopia’s advantageous location also makes it a convenient midway node in linking the EU and China through OBOR, which also reinforces the strategic significance of the Red Sea and hints at the ulterior motives that the US and GCC have for waging their War on Yemen around the Bab el Mandeb chokepoint.

    China is aware of all of this and foresaw it in advance, which is why its first-ever overseas military base will be in Djibouti. This isn’t just to oversee the Red Sea maritime trade routes on which most of its current bilateral trade with the EU depends, but to also protect its crucial game-changing continental investment in the Djibouti-Addis Ababa railway. Curiously, the spike in terrorist activity and the riotous destruction of foreign businesses which preceded the Ethiopian state of emergency uncannily coincides with the recent opening of this route, so it can’t be ruled out that the same Great Power which had an interest in undermining the Eurasian Land Bridge in Ukraine and the Friendship Pipeline in Syria also has a related strategic stake in sabotaging the Ethiopian Silk Road in the Horn of Africa through yet another of its many Hybrid War schemes.

    Interestingly, while rightly being designated by the Ethiopian government as terrorist groups for the carnage that they intend to create in the country, some members of such organizations like the Oromo Liberation Front and Ginbot 7 are hosted in the US and neighboring Eritrea.

  18. New Approach says:

    This is the nature of the TPLF story telling behavior from day one since it started 40+ years ago which is blaming others for own weaknesses and problems.

    Questions:

    Who is causing the unrests and every public cry, suffering and all the problems the country is facing for the last 25 years?

    It is no one but the so called the government in the name of EPRDF is the one causing them. It is not even a political party but an Ethnic based TPLF created, appointed and managed front. In china we have the Chinese communist party. All nations have political parties or party including the North Korean communist party.

    But in Ethiopia, we don’t have a political party. TPLF stands for Tigry people liberation front. This was their name when they were in Tigry Mountain fighting to liberate Tigry from the rest of Ethiopia decades ago. They also are having the same name for the last 25 years while ruling Ethiopia acting as colonizing and invading forces.

    As it is the cause of each and every situation we are facing for the last 25 years, EPRDF which is the TPLF creation is the main part of the solution working together allowing the citizens freely to live, assemble, move, work and do anything they want based on their citizenship rights respecting the country constitution if there is any in the country written by the real scholars and people representatives and ratified by the citizens based on the good of the nation and all the citizens.

    Therefore:

    1. TPLF as a Tigry people liberation front must stay away from the Ethiopian matters. Meaning it must dissolve and become a party with democratic principles or find some other alternatives if it wants to be part of the Ethiopian political environment.

    As their name is clearly describing them who they are and what they stands for, their presence in Ethiopia in the name of TPLF is nothing else but by force doing the things they are doing for the last 25 years which are known not only by Ethiopians but also the whole world.

    2. EPRDR is not a political party but a front with the collections of TPLF created Ethnic based fronts. It must dissolve as a front and become a political party with one nation and one people democratic principles.

    3. Ethiopia has almost 100 million people. There are millions having lots of love, respect and worry about their country and people. There are lots of genius and well intended and mannered Ethiopians with huge capacities and abilities to contribute lots for the country but they are unable to do so because of the TPLF lead so called government is not allowing them. Instead it treats them as enemies and continuously punishing them that way until they disappeared. This kind situation creates frustrations, angers and hostile behaviors from the public against the so called officials mainly TPLF and its supporters knowing TPLF is running the nation for the last 25 years under own interests and decisions. . The rest are just there to be used for the implementation and legalization of the TPLF personal interests and projects in the country.

    4. Ethiopian oppositions particularly those free from Ethnicity, religion or clan affiliation must be allowed to operate freely, openly and democratically knowing there are very much matured and well acquired politicians in the country but TPLF is targeting and hunting them down ever since it took power. Ethiopian oppositions like Andenet, kinijit and the like parties are very essential and part of the problem solving if TPLF is allowed them to operate freely and openly in their own country from now on.

    5. Private Medias must be free to operate freely and responsibly based on the nation benefits. TPLF owned and controlled medias are trash and part of the problems spreading lies after lies always taking the TPLF sides as it did with full of political lies about the unrest in Gonder telling lies as if Tigrians were targeted because of their Ethnicity.

    6. TPLF led EPRDF and its supporters are engaging with own self enriching and looting the nation. Look at them and their family members now and who they were back then. And look at the rest of the country. They are not doing the jobs responsibly serving the nation on time and the best ways but doing corruption, illegal business activities, wrong business contracts and criminal trade activities. Look at them how rich they are and ask them from where they got the money, business, land, luxury home, expensive furniture and so on they are having with plenty in the country where the vast majority are living with lots of worry how to eat, what to wear and where to live?

    7. Businesses, properties and money owned by TPLF members, families, collaborators and alliances must be investigated and those responsible must face justice while the property and money must be confiscated to the public ownership…..

    8. Lazy, incompetent and those are not doing the jobs on time and the best ways must be eliminated from the position they are there to enrich themselves and worsen the citizens situations.

    TPLF that is ruling the nation in the name of EPRDF which is not a political party but a front must understand that the people and international community know who is responsible about everything going on in the country for the last 25 years. It is the TPLF led EPRDF. There is no any nation anywhere in the world ruled under Ethnic policy and kilel dividing the country without any justification but to get reasons in order to take lands illegally from Amhara and Afar to Tigry which is 45% of Tigrys Kilel today.

    Egypt didn’t start but sees the opportunities caused by TPLF. Criminals or thieves are doing their crimes when they see weaknesses from the other side. This is what is going on in Ethiopia. Few TPLF elements and the TPLF created EPRDF servants are the only causes of the problems we are facing in the country. They are thinking they are still in Tigry Mountain before 25 years ago which is in the past millennia. They have no idea how the world is changed ever since and it is moving so fast every day.

    TPLF must change its name together with its 25 years old disaster policies and activities in the country. If not, as it stands for Tigry it must stay there. EPRDF must dissolve and become a party or disappear. As they are not, they must stop call themselves as a ruling party but front. Kilel officials must be free from the TPLF domination and total control mainly ANDM which is not serving the people and its whole territories including the occupied territories by Tigry crossing the River and its difficult canyon in Wolkait that is part of Gonder and Raya kobo in wollo.

    Stop blaming others for your mistakes but take responsibilities for your own actions. As long as you don’t admit and know the truth that you are the one causing all the problems we are suffering from, there will be no solution no matter how you are pretending to find any. In order to find the right medicines/treatments, the cause of the sickness and its nature must be identified and well studied. You are the one causing all the problems we have been through for the last 25 years. You have to admit that and take full responsibilities in order to solve them together easily, quickly and the right ways.

    Ethnic, religion and clan free opposition parties and free medias are part of the solution and must be free to do their jobs in their own country. The TPLF owned Medias such as EBC, FBC, Walia and so on are part of the problems as TPLF which is the Tigai people liberation front is.

  19. Yehararworke says:

    Quick Facts and History; TPLF fighters/leaders rolled in most cities and towns without a bullet fired at them some 26 years ago, people were so fed up with Derg and hunger for peace accepted them in open harm. Ethiopians were hoping finally the Derg era is over and the new beginning is insight. But TPLF’s leaders careful calculation and strategies for lasting survival coupled with their profound belief that Oromo and Amara must be powerless, diminished or controlled otherwise could threaten their existence. TPLF regime is neither country builder nor care for Ethiopians except their desert town. They made laws, controlled the economy and military to destroy any legitimate attempts by any ethnic groups in particular Amara. They ensure Oromo and Amara cities are controlled economically and politically and planted distrust among ethnic groups. These strategies served TPLF very well for the past 25 years.

    In 1970s well known party mostly dominated by Amara intellectuals, Ethiopia People Liberation Front (EPRP) fighters and leaders went to join TPLF believing they would have stronger front to fight Derg despite their differences. But little they know TPLF’s agenda; in thousands killed by Tigray fighters in the dessert of ASAMBA while they were in their sleep. They never had a chance to realize their dream to see a peaceful Ethiopia. TPLF beliefs, principle and agenda would be in jeopardy including giving up two ports and Eritrea would not be possible. The next 25 years they created and destroyed everything to benefit them. They accumulated a great deal of wealth and richen their associations and extended family. In this day and age, amount of monies and proprieties each TPLF, current rulers obtained for the past 25 years can be traced to US, Europe and China.

    It is laughable how this regime sees itself accusing the so called “foreign powers” and to compare its brutal state of emergency with other countries. In early 1980s TPLF helped to create Ogden Liberation Front (OLF) and collaborated with Egypt and with foreign entities interest to destabilize Ethiopia. OLF is a child of TPLF founders.

    It is an insult the regime calling unity while killing many hundreds innocent young people just because they are expressing their discontent. The regime is terrorizing its citizen by responding with bullet and imprisonment for their demands. Comparing the regime’s dangerous state of emergency law with advanced economies, it further completed the unrest and won’t bring peace.
    Déjà vu all over again; Haile Selassie, Derg now TPLF have never understood the people’s anger and discontent. Each time they had to be forced out. Currently, many said forcing this regime out could destabilize and creating division and endless conflict between ethnicities. It is not far from the truth, since the regime never allowed civic and political organizations to form and mature. IT is very true for most African countries

    It is obvious many groups may take advantage of the current situation in Ethiopia; but the people of Ethiopian have spoken loud and clear. They want change! There is no turn back!

  21. Erta says:

    While the Egyptian president wants to set himself up as the regional godfather, Addis Ababa and Ankara denounce Cairo’s interference in Ethiopia. ION investigates.

    The Egyptian Foreign Minister, under its Minister Sameh Shoukry, was driven to issue a press release on 6 October to deny Ethiopian and Turkish allegations that Egypt is backing Oromo rebels in Ethiopia.In barely veiled terms, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn recently incriminated the regime of Egyptian President Abdelfattah al-Sissi, declaring that “Forces that do not want Ethiopia to exploit its natural resources are indirectly involved in violence, by providing financial support to certain groups”. The head of the Ethiopian government has in mind the Egyptian president’s manoeuvres during the UN General Assembly in New York from 13 to 20 September. Throughout the event, the Egyptian government constantly looked for support from other African countries to block the economic rise of Ethiopia. He therefore tried to enlist the help of the presidents of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, and Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. He wants them to stand against the Ethiopian Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) project which has been a considerable cause of tension between Egypt and Ethiopia. But he quickly realised that their initiative had little success, the members of the Egyptian delegation – almost a hundred officials – reportedly sent messages to the African representatives at the assembly in New York warning them that Cairo could back the Oromo rebels. To be sure, Omgita Sharo, one of the leaders of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) is currently resident in the Egyptian capital, where the government has given him refugee status and protection by the secret service. Finally, Sissi’s strategy did not bear fruit in New York and it now remains to be seen whether he will carry out his threats. news from Indian ocean, African intelligence

    ፍሬውን ከበሉ በሁዋለ አዳም ለምን በላህ ሲባል ሄዋን ናት ብላ ያለችኝ(ያሳሳተችኝ)፣ሄዋን ስትጠየቅ ደሞ አባብ ናት ብዪ ያለችኝ እያሉ ያሳብቡ ነበር።
    በተመሳሳዮም ወያኔ አመፅ እንዲነሳ ያደረገችው ግብፅ ናት እየተባለ በሜዲያ እንሰማለን።ከዛም ኦነግና ግንቦት ሰባት ናቸው ይሉናል።ከ25 አመት በፊት በአማራ ሲያሳብቡ ቆይተው፣የዛሬ 25 አመት ከኦነግና ከሻቢያ ጋ አንድ ሆነው ቻርተር በሚያወጡበት ጊዜ በነፍጠኛ ያሳብቡ ጀመር።ከዛ ቀጥለው በሻቢያ፣በልሸባብ፣ከዛ በህዳሴው ግድብ ሰበብ ፀረ ልማት ሀይሎች እየተባለ ሲሳበብ ተኖረ።
    ይኸው ሰበብ ከ5000 አመት እስከአሁን መልኩዋን እየቀያየረች ትኖራለች፣በወያኔ ደሞ ተጠናክራለች። ለህዝቡ አመፅ ምክንያት ግብፅ ወይም ሻቢያ ወይም ኦነግ የማይሆንበት ምክንያት፣እነዚህ ቡድኖች ከዛሬ 20 አመት ጀምረው እስከዛሬ በጠላትነት የሚተያዩ ናቸው።አሁን ምን አግኝተው ነው ለአመፅ ማነሳሳት ጥንካሬ ያገኙት ቢባል ምንም ምክንያት የለም።
    ምክንያቱ ከራሱ ከወያኔ ነው።ራሱ መንግስት፣ራሱ ባለንብረት፣ራሱ ሻጭ፣ራሱ ገዢ፣ራሱ ለኩዋሽ ራሱ ተኩዋሽ፣ራሱ ገራፊ፣ራሱ ለፋፊ፣ረሱ ባንዲራ ሰሪ፣ራሱ ቁዋንቁዋ ፈጣሪ፣ራሱ ህገ መንግስ አርቃቂ፣ረሱ ጳጳስ መራጭ በሆነበት ሀገር፣ህዝብ የአመፀበት ምክንያት ወይም ሰበብ፣ ግብፅ የተባለች ሀገር በሰሜን አፍሪካ ስለምትኖር ነው ብሎ ነገር የሚገርም ነው።
    ህዝቡ ያመፀበት ምክንያት ግልፅ ነው። እንዲያውም የኢትዮጵያ ህዝብ ቻይ ነው እንጂ አላስቆም አላስቀምጥ የሚልን መንግስት ተሸክሞ መኖሩ የሚገርም ነው።መብቱን፣ንብረቱን፣እምነቱን ሁሉ ቀማው፣የህይወት ትርጉሙንም አሳጣው። የአበባ፣የስኩዋር፣ወዘተ ምርት ተብሎ የአካባቢ መበከል እንጂ ህዝቡ ምንም የተረፈው ነገር የለም፣ከረሀብና ከእርዛት፣ከስደት በስተቀር ማለት ነው። ለወደፊትም ቢሆን
    ይህ ችግር ካለተፈታ፣ግብፅ የተባለች ሀገር ወይም ሻቢያ ወይ ኦነግ ባይኖሩ እንኩዋን አመፁ የሚቀር አይመስለኝም።

  23. I guess the vast majority of the comments you receive are against your EPRDF? Why not post the comments? Are you affected by the state of emergency way before the law was even enacted?

    May God safe Ethiopia from its selfish children!
