Awramba Times (Addis Ababa) – Abebe Gellaw Vs. Guesh Abera; Amhaic article by Wosenseged Gebrekidan from Addis Ababa. Click here to read
I JUDGE THEM DEPENDING ON THEIR ACTION
THE ONE IS A HERO THE OTHER SHE-RO.
Bravo wosenseged. it is realy an appertiable comment go on.
I’m an individual who follow current affairs and appreciate a balanced and sensible articles and opinions. I’m neither a supporter nor opponent of EPRDF or G7. I’m a hybrid of Oromo and Amhara- therefore – not woyane/Tigray. I think this background help those who immediately label any opponent as “woyane/Tigray”.
Here is my reflection on this article:
1. I think this Wosenseged is the new brand of journalist, whose article is really smart (at least to me, but not for the vocal diaspora establishment). I’ve been longing to see such kind of neutral journalism for many years. Where was he in the past? I got to know him very recently.
2. Dawit! you have posted this article, which is by no means liked or published by all the diaspora news outlets (both pro and against the gov’t). Here I see two problems. 1. You will be cursed, blamed, … for the days to come …. just like any Ethiopian- who happen to think independently. 2. You are from Tigray, and the intensity of harassment would be 10 fold. This is the fact (whether you admit it or not).
May God be with you two guys.
I am AleQa Bru and I approve this article:-))
Wonderful observation and advice.
DEAR WOSENSEGED , I THANK YOU FOR THE ARTICLE AND DAWIT THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS WELL BALANCED AND THOUGHTFUL APPROACH , I TELL YOU HOWEVER THERE IS SOME KIND OF SICKNESS AMONG SO CALLED DIASPORA COPY CAT MEDIA’S , WOSENSEGED HUGELY CHANGED MY ATTITUDE TOWARDS PRIVATE MEDIA’S , BY PROFESSION I AM A JOURNALIST WITH A HIGHEST ACADEMIC RANK ON THE PROFESSION , I DID HATE MY PROFESSION WHEN I LOOKED AT SOME OF THE MEDIA REPORTS MADE BY OPPOSITION OUTLETS AND EVEN GOV’T sponsored LIVE OR RECORDED MEDIA OUTLETS ,NOW I DON’T WANT TO BE A pessimist BUT A HATE CAMPAIGN WILL EMERGE VERY SOON ON YOU AND AWERAMBA TIMES , YOU HAVE TO WEL COME ALL THE SCENARIOS AS IT IS A NORMAL NURTURED BEHAVIOR OF THE DIASPORA SO CALLED ( IT MAKES ME SICK TO CALL THEM JOURNALIST ) JOURNALISTS , YOU HAVE TO KEEP ON WRITING ARTICLES TO YOUR WAY , ABEBE GELAW FOR ME IS NOT AT ALL A JOURNALIST OR ACTIVIST , BUT AN EXTREME OPPOSITION PARTY MEMBER , WHO ARE OBSESSED WITH INFATUATION AND DEEP ROOTED PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPEDIMENTS. HE SHOULD SEEK ASSISTANCE , I DON’T EXPECT JOURNALISM FROM HIM OR THE LIKES , THE PRINCIPLE OF JOURNALISM TO THEM IS JUST WHAT EVER IT’S AS LONG AS IT OPPOSED EPRDF IT’S THEIR LIFE SPAN PETROL , DON’T EXCPCT FROM ESAT , ETHIOMEDIA OR ANY EXTREMIST WEBSITES ANY RESIDUAL JOURNALISM , BUT TUNING TO NEGATIVISM AND WAR MONGER. WELL DONE WESENSEGED .
Tnx God that there are sensible writers.
One resonable and balanced opinon/ article is more worth reading than thousands of poisonous, unbalanced and futile sensational articles from the majority of the Diaspora websites who live in their imaginary,fanciful internet dream world.
Well,I think this article is authored by Dawit Kebede, as it was what he was telling the so-called Aba Mela (Berahanu Damte)…

Tirsit. Nice try!
Wosenseged is among the brave journalists who were in Qality in 2005-2007. Try to come up with another excuse, and please make it more intelligent! kkk…
Dawit Down Under I share your opinion. I am not sure what this guy is trying to say. He is jumping all over the place and trying to use all kinds of amharic words and proverbs to give his article an amharic flavour but didn’t work. Nice try and please come up with some substatiative issues and give some tangible proofs for what you are saying.
Good and balanced opinion, like it. journalism is not about talking side, it is providing society with the right info. The road that ESAT and Abebe are on will only take them to dead end. You keep up the good job Dawit!
Good job Wosen for writing and Dawit for posting it
this is just a non sense article that has no horn or tail, first of all the writer wants to attack those who were disappointed by the weyane servant guesh abera, however the writer was failed to read or mention what the weyane evil racist supporters were using not only insults against abebe and other oppostions but also using anything to kill and abuse ethiopians, as a result i recommend the writer to read the views of the stone head arrogant weyane idiot supporters from tigray online and others prior to attack the other group, anyway, the writer is a one sided person who want to attack the oppostion, shame on him for being blind to see the other side
I think u need to open your eyes and try read between the line. From what u wrote u have no idea who the writer is, try do a bit of research before criticizing, the writer exposed the truth.
As of Abebe, I dont know why he is making a big deal out of the situation, cus even if it is true and he was killed we all would’ve remember him as Abebe who died for his country for his people and we all would’ve called him a hero, whoever cus he is coward, instead of facing the truth, prove his allegation he as gone in hiding.
We still want to know the truth, if he is man enough he can still come out of hiding and prove his allegation against Guesh no matter what, even if he as to put his life on the line, well after all he is doing it for the country and people that he love the most ha. If he can not do that then all he have to do is admit what he did was unprofessional, unethical a complete lie. It is as simple as that. If he is not ready to die to his country then he should stop barking. As far as I am concerned he is not freedom fighter, he is not activist he is simply umm…..a confused individual.
min honk Dawit sewuyew eko yetsafew neger kezih ywulal aybalm !!
GUESH IS OUER HERO ABABA AND ESAT IS TERRORIST OLSO CONFUSED
