    What is your implication, adm? Why do you care of the presence or absence of a member of one group as opposed to the other group? I am just curios. We know that web pages have their own biases and I just wanted to know your implication.

    Hey Dawit, check out your facts. Aster Mamo is not an EC member of the OPDO but she is a CC member. Each organization in the facade EPRDF has nine EC members. All EC members from each group are also ex officio members of the EC of the fake EPRDF. It is not known why Aster Mamo who is not the EC member is sitting in the meeting. She might be the replacement for Zelalem Jemaneh who was fired from the CC and EC of the OPDO a while back or she may be filling in for Alemayehu Atomsa who has been sick for a long time and is out of commission. He wasn’t seen in the meeting. It is not only Aster who is present by cooption. The pseudo defence minister Siraj Furgessa from SEPDM/Silte is also taking part in the meeting and it is not known who he is replacing. Absent or EC members who have not been sighted on the video clip were Azeb Mesfin, Abbadula Gemeda, Girma Birru, Addisu Legesse, Berhan Hailu, Teshome Toga and may be a couple more.

      Nice observation. But I do not understand, why you still call EPRDF a facade and fake. Now that cerebral leader is dead,Eritrea’s Tesfaye Gebreab and the blonde Fesseha Eshetu are speculating stronger OPDO and ANDM.They say TPLF is left with specialists technocrats and old rascals. Not satisfied, yet?

      @Cheru, look the video again carefully. Alemayehu Atomsa is there with a hat

      • cheru says:

        Good catch and thank you Teshager. I take it back. He has been changed beyond recoginition and that is why I missed recognizing him. Having said that his presence at the meeting is merely physical serving no more purpose than helping in meeting the quarum. He is no more functional and already decommissioned. He had been in Bankok, Thiland, for the good part of the last two years receiving medical treatment but came back to say farewell to his former boss, the late terrorist-in-chief Meles. In that sense he is as good as the absentees. For that matter, all the EC members from the puppet groups (ANDM, OPDO and SEPDM) including HD who is sitting in the front pretending to chair TPLF’s meeting have no say, none whatsoever, except giving a nod to the TPLF’s decision.
