في بلدي مُتنمر
وشعب بلدي غافر
إذن المُتنمر إنسان غريب
التسامح معه عيب
يدخل اي مكان دون إذن
ينطلق في الشارع دون احترام القانون
لا يقل سرعته والإشارة تقول اصفر
لا يقف لما تقول احمر
والناس تسأل عن هدف المتنمر
هل يريد اخذ الآثار
حتى نكون دون تاريخ يُذكر
او يريد ثروتنا ويكون كل واحد منا فقير
ماذا يريد المتنمر؟
يدخل في مكتب فيه وزراء دون اخلاق
ولماذا لا يفعل ذلك وكلهم في نوم العميق
بدلا من مناقشة امور البلد بشكل دقيق
رأى المتنمر الدستور
ووجد على غلافه غبار
حيث لم يفتحه احد ولو لمرة واحدة
ضحك المتنمر واصبحت روحه سعيدة
قرر ان يسيطر الأرض
وطاف البلاد من غير اي اعتراض
من اي مواطن كبير كان او صغير
الكل كان خائف من المتنمر
إلا الطرقات المتداخلة الوعرة
لتنمره لم تكن صابرة
حاول الخروج منها بجدارة
لكن كل محاولاته كانت خاسرة
لم يعرف كيف يطلع من هذه الورطة
يحاول ولكن يرجع إلى نفس النقطة
فهم بأن تنمره لم يكن نافع
لخروج من هذا المستنقع
فرفع الراية البيضاء للصلح والسلام
اصبح متواضعا واحسن الكلام
اما اهلي تسألوا عن السببونطقت الطرقات وردها كان عجيب
اهلي الساكنون في الطرقات
حافظوني من شر كل المخلوقات
متحملين الحمل في كل اوقات
من برد الشتاء وحرارة الصيف
صمدوا وكافحوا في الصف
فهؤلاء يستأهلون بأن يستلموا الحكم
حتى لا تتعرض البلاد للظلم

Today is almost weekend, So, what do you think if we listen Ethiopian music…Abay Ena Tana | አባይ እና ጣና – New Ethiopian Music 2020 Open the bellow link and enjoy,,
Hello Kokhob Selam,
I was in Bahir Dar in 2014. I found it to be like an Ethiopian Riveria with all the palm trees and beautiful weather…
Why not go back and visit it… I actually met one person building a hotel there…
Do you know who brought the palm tree? an Eritrean.. ለባህር ዳር በዘንባባ ማጌጥ ምክኒያት የሆኑት አባት …./ ያልተዘመረላቸው / በቅዳሜ ከሰዓት
See the 95 years old man,,,watch and enjoy;;
Hello Kokhob Selam,
I am surprised they didn’t deport him. He is definitely a Gobezocrat. His legacy will live with the city.
Dear Brother Mullah,
They didn’t deport everyone..They choose some who choose referendum and not also all,..
That is a lie. They deported 1) those whose property they coveted; 2) those with whom any Tigrayan had a grudge; 3) anyone they chose to humiliate. It had nothing to do with the referendum. I guess the mask is coming off.
“That is a lie” Will you respect you soul man?
Are you telling us when they deported the 90,000 Eritreans because they didn’t like the color of their eyes, they were referring to a list of those who voted in the referendum? I repeat you are lying. The only question is why? Are you a stinking TPLF cadre?
“Are you a stinking TPLF cadre? ” I don’t know what makes you say so? It is really heart breaking..If you can please a bit respect gentle man..So how do you reach to this stage?
Please keep silent if you cannot debate civically.
I ask because I can’t see any reason why an Eritrean would lie so blatantly. What is the point?
You sound offended by the “TPLF cadre “ comment.
The other day you called me a derg General. I was not offended because I’m not a Derg General.
Why are you offended? Truth hurts , right?
Meles, The visionary leader you and your colleagues elevated to sainthood , deported whoever has a wrong eye color. I don’t think the referendum issue was not a deciding factor considering the overwhelming majority voted for independence.
Hi Kokhob Selam. Kudos. I can tell that you are really benefitting from the online TPLF JUCO History & Science classes that Paulos relentlessly conducts. .
Hi Dongolo ,
Is that ? let it be ..who will care about that?
I’m not trying to defend anyone but what u talking about is assumption.
1, over 90% houses of eritrean business and residences were gov properties at the time.
2, do u know what ethiopia citizenship laws say about citizenship, according to ethiopian constitution even ” berket semon” can’t have citizenship.
3, do u know any country for thier own any reasons can deport foreigners?
4, do u know eritrea deported ethiopians before even eritrea become independent country?
I know Tigrayans from the Diaspora who went to Addis to buy property that was stolen from the deportees. I know Eritreans who sold their houses in 1997 and left Addis. So your point 1) is a lie. Your other points are too stupid to debate. There are still idiots who believe that Eritrea extracted gold from Ethiopians and deported them!
U said “i know tigraians from diaspora who went to addis to buy property that was stolen from the deportees” i don’t know what to say, if they want to buy property, why u think they want to by only deportees property? u think it is because the government sold the property only for tigraians for cheap amount of money? u not just idoit but u clueless stupid.
I told u the government didn’t confiscate any property, the deportees gave thier belongings, like bad, chair, car…… by “wekelena” to the people they trust.
And it is a fact even those considered rich , those who owned a pastry shops, the likes of gebretensia, belay tekelu and so on houses were government owned houses.
Ethiopia has a right to deport any foreigners for any reason . if something happens tomorrow, i guaranty u ethiopia will deport foreigners, just like any countries.
Selam Teodros Alem. You say that ‘any country for their own reasons can deport foreigners’. Did you know that most of those deported during 1998-2000 were actually Ethiopians with Eritrean origin or accused of having Eritrean origins or connections? Did you know that Ethiopia cannot undertake mass deportation under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights for which it has subscribed? Do you know that the Ethiopian Constitution specifically states that ‘The prohibition against cruel and inhuman treatment and the right to equality may not even be derogated from during times of state emergency’?
Read what the ethiopian constitution say about citizenship.
Hi Kokhob Selam. You are simply incorrect in what you are asserting. Why do you feel compelled to minimize the atrocities committed by the TPLF against Eritreans?
That is perfect name for you..
“Why do you feel compelled to minimize the atrocities committed by the TPLF against Eritreans?” No question asked..at this time do you think I am TPLF? I never been all my life..But you have see the timing..
Hi Kokhob Selam. I do not believe that you are TPLF. Rather, I believe that you are a disgruntled former ELF who has/continues to sympathies with the TPLF. Not unlike most other elders here, I do not recall you ever really criticizing the TPLF.
I don’t have to be as you want me it to be..It is everybody will have his own stand..Let us be free and not controlled by some one else.
But what we should be is see for common stand and be united to be stronger..
I watched the link and read a bbc report. The palms were brought from Asmara by ፊታውራሪ ሐብተማርያም the administrator. ኣቶ ዋሴ ኣካሉ planted and took care of the palm trees. The information you gave is inaccurate. Who is Eritrean who was not deported for the reasons you gave in your other comment? The administrator or the region or ኣቶ ዋሴ? Do you know personally one of them is Eritrean?
The reason I am interested is that the inaccurate information someone accolades to the correct information becomes the arson that causes the wild fire as we have seen in this forum in the last two days.
Dear Brother Haile,
Thank you for the interest..See, the admin (an Ethiopian) gave order to his fellow men and -I really don’t know how was the order placed..But I know personally ኣቶ ዋሴ ኣካሉ when I was in Bahir dar. I really don’t know if this Eritrean was ordered to bring the palm tree and or he brought the palm tree by his initiative..
“…someone accolades to the correct information becomes the arson that causes the wild fire as we have seen in this forum in the last two days.” I am not aware of this..May you explain it clearly?
First, I communicated clearly and you understood well where I was going. That was the reason you edited your response to elaborate the deportation of your family. Therefore, same goes to my other statement…. I don’t need to put fuel on the smoldering fire of the last two days. What you are looking for was pointed out by others and myself (in tigrigna).
On inaccurate statement you said “Do you know who brought the palm tree? an Eritrean.. ለባህር ዳር በዘንባባ ማጌጥ ምክኒያት የሆኑት አባት”. That is totally wrong, based on the reports.
The potential wildfire that resulted from the beautiful story of planting palm was how you put the deportation “They choose some who choose referendum and not also all”. We cam hammer on this for days.
I don’t understand what you are talking about?
mad mullah, said “I was in Bahir Dar in 2014. I found it to be like an Ethiopian Riveria with all the palm trees and beautiful weather… ” and i gave to him what I fond in EBS TV about the palm tree to that point..
Now for unknown reason you jump and ask about it..and I reply to you perfectly..I still don’t understand what you are talking about..and yes the deportation was he mad mulla ask why the man (ኣቶ ዋሴ ኣካሉ ) wasn’t deported and I gave clear answer to him to my knowledge…
Now, I don’t know what you are talking about..you make read all from the beginning…it is like searching in the forest ..
“I don’t need to put fuel on the smoldering fire of the last two days. What you are looking for was pointed out by others and myself (in tigrigna).” what is that? I am exhausted now..
I don’t want you to get exhausted. We can leave it there.
Thank you Haile.
I found out what is the problem,,,Ha ha ha what a mess man?
Look down the words of Consolation,
selam kokhob s
I don’t know from where u get this info, there was eritrean guy by the name ” gebremesekel” who brought the palm tree from asmera by the order of FT habtemariam, the than governor of bd.
Wassa akalu was the one who used to watering and other stuff for the trees.
i don’t know where u get the info wassa akalu is eritrean?
You don’t deserve my reply.
I don’t blame u,unstable status. I think u missed ur medication.

I am waiting for answer. What does Dongola signify other than stone in Eritrea and neighborhood. You will duly compensated with a joke and an article linked to it.
Saleh, it was an awel-beer.
Selam Haile S,
Fast as in the Sudanese Horse, as in throwing a stone to hit someone or something?
That is my wild guess until I find my Tig. Dictionary!
Yep, you got it. It is breed of horse native to Western Eritrea and Suda. Here is your recompense:
A hilarious joke from Fanti, oops! sorry from Fante. He was in Adigrat, a contemporary of Zegenfo.
You need some smile guys. While searching for an article in tigrigna, I came upon the interesting article cited at the bottom. First the joke. Thank you THY for publishing this serious article.

Thanks for the lesson and the laugh as well. The accent couldn’t have been ዓዲ-ግራት፣ I would say, ዓድዋ or ኣኽሱም.
The article is accessible online. I was happy to stumble upon it. It is based on books written on this funny guy. And there are few more jokes in the article.

Indeed Wedi Fante is hilarious! I have never heard of those satires. It would have been spicy if we knew them during the time when we were cracking up by the “Gabrovo” jokes.
Well done Fantination!
*Dongolo Basso and Dongolo Alto :
A) Name of twin villages on the Asmara-Massawa road in Eritrea. Donholo is not necessarily Tigrinya like many other places, but could be, and,
B) a brand of carbonated water (Aqua Minerale, pronounced Aqua Marinaio by most Asmarinos who thought it digests heavy meals) from wells in Dongolo Basso… or Dongolo Alto, not sure. But the bottling plant was by the mosque in Edaga Hamus, adjacent to the petrol station across from a bar frequented by masons mostly serving wine from Elaber’ed. Don’t be surprised, I know it because my father was its sole distributor of “Aqua Marinaio” in western Eritrea–not and attractive brand of his business because it involved carrying filled bottled all the way through Keren to Tessenei and Humera and transporting the empties back to the plant in Asmara….my smart father invented a way our: he sold the empties in the market where households and sesame oil producers (Assarra) in the region where they raced to buy them…. uffff!
*Dongola: A) a boulder, and B) a thick head. I am sure it was used on B before A 🙂
*Dungula: A place in Sudan whose people i heard trace their ancestry in Eritrea. In their language, Denqal means red brick–our Dongola might be derived from the name of a large brick….
*Jungle: Forest in English–could be a source of the word, wild guesses are allowed.
Hey! You forgot Kokheb is waiting. Now go to Jebena and have some more coffee is it beer 🙂
Very interesting. You are resourceful!
Dongollo seems everywhere. While trying to locate on maps one of the funniest village name I heard in Eritrea (ቄናን ቆብዓ) in Serae, for Paul, I found a village named Dongollo near Adelges in that area. Another beautiful name I located near there is Adi Derar Aini.
Lets leave Kokhob in peace alone today. He is not familiar with these areas 🙂 :-). He only knows Bahdar, Zegie, Adiet, Fogera, Hamusit and environs.
“Kokhob in peace alone today” so, why do you care about me?
I am familiar too..Don’t you know I was also ELF fighter? I am only watching you guys where you will reach. To be honest I am enjoying all the comments,,I am reading everything and understanding it all .
Unfortunately, I mix you with Handesa (MM ) and I gave credit to you the last poem that you prepare to our brother Saleh Johar ..that was also great mistake from me if you notice ,,,Ha Ha ha..None of aswate people notice,,,It is not edited just read it please…
When we were in the field there was “Adi Dongollo” a hero fighter too –that was his country side (his village),,
See “Dongollo” is everywhere even even near Bahire Dar there is Dangla see it from google..
Dangila is a town in northwestern Ethiopia. Located in the Agew Awi Zone of the Amhara Region, this town has a latitude and longitude of 11°16′N 36°50′E …
please don’t underestimate me,,Just Kidding only HAILAT ..
I was provoking you :-). I know you knew these places by trekking, unlike me through map. I also saw the mix up, funny!

When a black man shames his own color
He starts calling name
to a black man of another clan
and the later also replys the same
He degrades another faith follower
And so, does the later
He also body shames his brother
Suddenly, he sees his face in the mirror
And before knowing who he is
He jumps higher
To join those who fight for blacks
And say loudly “Black Lives Matter”
I can’t get it
Is he , the black man who is against blacks?
Is he, the racist man who is against racism?
Yes, he is
The one who says I am Abyssinian
He gave no respect to others backhome
But in overseas he tries to seek a throne
This is a great and timely piece by a great woman.
You did also a great job in translating this linguistically challenging piece.
To highlight the absurdity of Habesha racism against their own race, I would not weaken the ugly statement ከንፈር ባርያ by more a general statement such as “body shaming”.
I tried to say ” shames the lips of his own brother’ but it won’t be clear. Also if I say the lips of a slave or slave’s lips won’t be clear either. But thanks, and let us see our dear Jebena friends
Taking Prof Hashela’s comment. What about “denigrates his facial feature”
Yes ኺድ ገጽካ ትርሓቕ ከንፋር ባርያ can be translated
He denigrates the facial feature of his brother.
Rumana, as I have observed has two ways of expressions: one is plain and the other is more advanced with symbolism, abstract and challegning and I belive this stanza falls under the former , that is why I tried to translate it in a plane English.
But thank you Abrehet, I am working on another one and I hope to see you commenting.
