    Yes! Mr. Abay job well done. Keep the good work that you doing and yes we should help our Somalian brothers and sisters whenever they needed help. The people of somali region are the one who helped and denounced the deportation of innocent Tigray people from Gonder region while the Gonder regional president and the people of Gonder say nothing.

  2. Aite Nigus says:

    it is good to help each other, but it looks like to pay back the credit 10 with the Profit 2 Millions. Is mr. Abay or the Somali guy mr. Mohamed generous? I think somalis, because tigres must donate atleast 50 Million to make it prctical. by the way, has awramba no other history better than this nonsense?

      If this website is not the interest you, you can find other webs, which are very skillful in disseminating ethnic hate politics rather helping each other.

  3. Zerfnesh says:

    The federal government is always going around khat infested areas like Ogaden to kidnap the youth and make them soldiers . These kidnapped people would submit to the government demands easily and do anything they are ordered to do when they get supplied with khat at work even if it means killing innocent students.

    Most of the khat addicted soldiers and khat addicted Military generals in Ethiopia get sent to kill innocent Ethiopians, because the soldiers that are not khat addicted tend to take off their uniforms and join the protestors rather than killing the protestors but the khat addicted soldiers kill women , babies , elderly , just about anybody without hesitation as long as they don’t get penalized for chewing khat at work.
    Religious institutions need to work hard on saving people’s lives tackling the various dangers the followers face in their new home country . The racial tension and identity crisis happen to be at extremely high level among Ethiopians in Baltimore area with almost no religion institution addressing the core problem. For example in Ethiopia Khat addiction is not allowed for church goers but out here in especially in DC area USA we see so many Crack heads openly within all sorts of Ethiopia churches as if it is normal, eventhough Khat is similar to crack , cocaine , methamphetamine and so on . In Ethiopia khat chewing is not permitted even in Muslim Mosques let alone churches but in DC they smoke out in the parking lot and walk n the church right away. Some deal right there in the churches parking lot. We see many Ethiopians that were Khat addicted in Ethiopia tend to get addicted to crack cocaine methamphetamine and so on when they come to western countries because they get a quick high and it easier to find crack than khat in USA .
    Many Ethiopians living in diaspora western countries that became crack heads agree Khat is exactly similar to crack , cocaine , methamphetamine and so on . You don’t see that many Ethiopians being crack heads unless they were used to khat early on .. When it comes to Khat there is noway you can take it with moderation. It takes atleast half a day of constant chewing to feel the effect so many didn’t had the time to show their faces i church back home but here in USA it takes them less than 5 minutes to get high from crack so they go on to churches regularly.
    Khat production and exporting business is to blame for the famine 2017 in Ethiopia as crack smoking is the main cause for the rise in divorces in mostly DC area and Europe. Northern part of Ethiopia converted khat farms into food crop farms that is why no famine is expected in the northern Ethiopia in 2017 while Southern and eastern are still in danger suffering from the famine that lingered to close to three years .
    Majority of the world with modern laboratory facilities made khat illegal even countries that allow alcohol and marijuana legally make sure khat is illegal. in 2014 Stimulant khat banned as illegal class C drug in UK,Possessing khat, a plant used as a stimulant by Somali communities, has been made illegal in the UK.The ban comes after members of Cardiff’s Somali community previously called for khat to be outlawed .
    khat appears to be legal in only 6 countries in the world Holland , Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Yemen. All these 6 countries suffer so much societal , economical and political problems as a direct result of khat evn few business people profit from it. Khat is illegal in Tigrai state in Ethiopia as well but in other parts of Ethiopia it is not illegal because the ruling junta Tigrayans People’s Liberation Front(TPLF) liberated Tigrayans from Khat but TPLF business people as Azeb Mesfin are the number one khat dealers making billions of dollars each year by selling khat in other parts of Ethiopia. Khat also benefits the ruling junta to enslave Ethiopians.
    Khat chewing has been associated with duodenal ulcer same as Crack cocaine. This effect can be because of the stress that follows khat chewing, the amphetamine-like action of cathine, increased presence of H. pylori , or insecticides and chemicals used for growing the khat plant..

      I would rather say Zerfnesh is illusionist and is totally out of touch. You better come to reality. You are frustrated and abnormal. My advice is you better come back to Ethiopia for Sebel. Way bela Mariam or Kux Yelash Mariam will help you as soon as you come. You need help.

      • Zerfnesh says:

        to Muller

        You must be one of the drug addicts whether it is khat or crack possibly both . I must hit your home when I said khat addicts soldiers kill innocent Ethiopians to get their khat supplied to them regularly. Or maybe I hit your home when I said those ex-khat addicts somehow get to USA or Europe only to become crack heads in USA and Europe.. It is true .eventhough you want to tell me it is not, so people don’t know your secrets . Maybe you will loose your social status if people knew what kind of a person you are..

        Illusionist are people like you that are out of touch of reality claiming everything is fine and dandy in Ethiopia , with double digit growth and African leading economy bla bla bla .

        You don’t even have a shame when you engage in ridiculing whoever brings up serious real issues concerning the Ethiopian society. If everyone was given equal rights to voice their opinions all these Problems would have been fixed decades ago but few people like you like to ridicule people who bring about real issues making the problems linger for too long.. Imagine how many people were saying the country got problems that needed fixing while people like you ridicule them for the last twenty five years. Where is the country now? In State Of Emergency. Even in 2017 You still ridicule people .

        . If your holy water Sebel in Ethiopia is the solution for the current unrest in Ethiopia that put the country on the verge of all out civil war why do we need the State of emergency then? why don’t you try giving holy water sebel to everyone and lift the state of emergency? why beg for food for three years if sebel was the solution . From what I hear thew so called sebel holy water places in Ethiopia are mostly infested with cholera and Tuberclosis unless you go to those rich people’s church such as Bole Medhanealm church in Addis Ababa anyway.
        . .

        • Muller says:

          Zerfnesh : You are out of reality and illusionist as I said it before and I stand on my words. But now I know why. You are a confused Shabia who doesn’t even know what Ethiopia is doing as you speak non-sense. How did I knew about that is simple, you Shabias are all alike, you jump in name calling and you are good in defaming Ethiopia, most of all you want to see a starving Ethiopia. But, you don’t want to see how many young Eritreans, particularly young female Eritreans have been helped by Ethiopia. Have you ever been in Ethiopia. You are Isayas born child and I will bet you, you never been in Ethiopia. You have been confused by your own home grown terrorist, called Isayas. How many times were you in prison? I truly don’t care about that either. Have a miserable life in your own belittled Etitrea.
          You deserve Isayas forever.

        • bb says:

          Dear Zerfnesh, you tried to lecture us your frustration of nonsense and that belongs to you and your few extremist who are living close to you and I don’t have anything to tell you about Ethiopia today, the only thing I can say to you is to come
          and visit your country if you only can afford it but if you are one of the few extremist diaspora who rely on welfare live in public housing and divorced then I don’t have to say nothing other than GOD bless you. Remember, believe it or not Ethiopia will never be governed by those extremist diaspora. Ethiopia today is not the same as Derg era or King.

    well don job .Brothers and sisters in Ethiopia and abroad we have to show our unity with all of the Ethiopian nation and nationality .
    the Somali people were one of the few nations called their home land is not Ethiopia But they are in Ethiopia as ”refuges” by the EHAPA and there far fathers and their remnants in different name and regime . THE future political game is clear that in the house representative the number setting for the Somali is small, hence thy are ready to use this as means for the conflict in the our dear Ethiopia especially in the heart of our brothers and sisters Somali .
    pleas don not say ethiopian somali mokadisho somali because as there is no Ethiopian.. TIGRAE ERITREAN … TIGRAE , NO DJIBOUTI AFAR ETHIOPIAN AFAR the Sam is for Somali .

  5. Ancient Ethiopia says:

    I am happy that our ogaden Ethiopians get the help they need but whoever wrote this article is fuckn woyane slave because nobody was deported or forced to leave Gondar or any other part of the Amhara region!!!! The sellout and inferior woyanes are the ones who created this pretext of Tigres being forced to leave Gondar!!! Amharas are very proud, generous and gracious people!!!! They have lived with tigres and other Ethiopian peoples peacefully for millennia!!! Its my urgent wish that the inferior, sellout, corrupt and filthy woyanes leave Ethiopia for good, strong,educated and patriotic Ethiopians to lead our historic, beautiful, mysterious and proud country!!!!

    • Muller says:

      This ancient Ethiopian is so smart educated, talented, patriotic, ha ha has amnesia, because he or she is forgetting 6 month’s of it’s own history so fast. Who deported Tigrayans then, who run for thier lives from all corners of Amhara region to Sudan, through Metema. Then the Sudanese government helped the Tigrians to go to Tigray. What a hypocrite. History is going to judge you for the rest of your lifetime. Yewega biresa yetewega ayresam. Don’t you ever forget that my dear friend.
      Having said that the people who helped the Tigrians first in this shameful deportation after Sudanese, were the Somali, then Afar people, and Abay Weldu is returning the favor by saying thanks in the name of all Tigrians. That goes for me too. This is what it means a helping hand people to people. Shame on you to those who oppose a helping hand. I thank you all who stretch their hands by all means necessary. Keep up the good work.

  6. Guest says:

    Well done Tigrai Regional State! Helping each other is the way to go if our Ethiopia is to exist as one country.

  7. Ahmed says:

    I am very glad to take this opportunity to thank the Tigray People for their humanly and brotherly assistance for their fellow Ethiopians.
    Word of advice for those deluded “derg” supporters spewing hatred and lies toward other communities: (derg era is over and can never return)
    Whatever rubbish you wrote here won”t change the reality on the ground, get that in your pipe and smoke it.

  8. Fox Tiger says:

    From the start this never happened, that means the Somali region did not give 20 million birr to Tigray region now they are trying that false story as true story by tealing us the Tigray region gave 12 million birr to Somali region

  9. Abdurahman says:

    In 2013 just before the El-Nino started Somali region had 620 Cattles while Amara region got 12,748 Cattles and Tigrai region got 3103 Cattles.

    Eventhough the Amara region got all those cattles like always throughout history the Amaras didnot help any aid to Somali region while the Tigrai region is sending non-stop until today countless cattle aid to the Somali region for the last 3 years.

    Tigrai people are for sure our dear brothers that saved us from unimaginable tragedy, we Somali-Ethiopians owe Tigrayans our life.

  10. Abdulkadir says:

    We in the Somali region knows all the tricks from the outset. First of all, the Somali region people didn’t give 10 million birr to the Tigrians. It was Abdi the gang who gave the money and forced some belly Ogadenis to deliver the message in Mekelle. The objective was very simple: to appease the TPLF generals based in Harar and Jigjiga and to deflect the attention from the day-to-day genocide of the Somali people by Abdi’s militia together with TPLF Agazis. No more no less!!

  12. Sharmarkie Hussien says:

    Dear editor,
    It won’t be bad to support each other with good intention but I have questions related to Somali region, as I note you supported Tigrean displaced from Gonder issuing Ten million birr check why you didn’t support when three thousand Amharas displaced from Benishangul or you have calculated political mathematics, believe or not Tigre and Amhara are more brothers than Issa and Ogaden does, imagine within yourself you are not health with your neighbor you are not at good shape yet you try to buy from remote area. Ideally, the displacement of innocent civilians is unacceptable for whatever ethnic group.
    Somali please learn what cooperation really mean? Don’t be thirsty while standing in the water, everybody know, the entire Somali region is Deseret but big rivers from the high lands of Oromia flow over the years, you better cultivate this …I guess this rivers won’t be flowing yesterday or the day before yesterday but thousands of years ago.
    Dear editor, last year when there was drought in Eastern and South east part of Oromia specially East and West Haraghe, Arsi, East Shoa, AA zuria (aqaqi woreda) were victim of draught but the people from the other part of Oromia like Jimma, Ilubabor,wollega,AA zuria and AA too were mobilizing food and non-food items to those areas but it was under reported. Solidarity and helping each other should be one pillar of Ethiopian but with good intention.

    It’s great to help each other
    Pls help the poor and the needy as much as we can,
    TO REPLY to some of the people here who try to divide the people day and night,
    When I first heard about people getting kicked out of Gonder, I was sick to the stomach
    I MADE some phone call to ethiopia, I fund out that. Only a few people were told to leave
    Because of misinformation other people got scared and laft.
    ONLY people who have connection with the Government security were told to leave
    Because the Government keep using people from one area to do the spying, the killing and the jailing. What choice The Gonder’s have if they want to fight back.
    COME ON PEOPLE, where were you when thousands and thousands of poor Amhara farmers loose there life and livelyhood from different part of Ethiopia.

    People getting kicked our of their land just because they speak a different language
    This happening THE LAST25 years.
    Can’t find otherwise in any history books

    Very proud of you Tigray people and kilil for the prompt response to the drought in our Somali kilil. What you have done is exemplary; our dear Ethiopian Somali brothers more than deserve it.

    God bless

    Samson Mamo is worried about the Unity of our country. I personally feel that there is nothing better than TPLF. Please, come on Samson it is time for you to think and come to your mind. The TPLF (Adwa PLC) has looted Billions of Dollars from the mouth of starved Ethiopians. It has polarized the people along ethnic lines. It has provided the border land to the Sudan in order to please the Sudanese and prevent a foot to opposition base. The regime has systematically killed millions of Amharas. It is also carrying out genocide in Amhara and Oromo regions. I believe that Egyptian, Eritrean or any other colonial rule over Ethiopia is by far better than the rule of TPLF. I don’t think Egyptian, Eritrean or any other colonial rulers can commit as much genocide crime as TPLF.
