Hastily Prepared Tripartite Meeting Wrapped Up

Objections by EPRDF bigwigs has delayed the long-planned visit by Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea to the Amara region of Ethiopia, which was announced over a month ago.

Isaias visit also triggered criticism by Mohammed Jawar, the director of Oromo Media Network and a popular mobilizer among the Ethiopian youth. On November 7, Jawar tweeted the following:

On Friday Isaias traveled to Gondar where the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Dr. Abiy Ahmed stated that Isaias’ grandfather is buried in Gondar.

Earlier, Dr. Abiy had altered the plans to avoid the embarrassment caused by Isaias’ visit which is only welcomed by Ethiopian nationalists on whom Dr. Aby pegs much of his popularity. In one of his speeches, he invoked the name of Emperor Tedros, the 19th-century king who committed suicide to avoid capture by General Napier in Meqdela, his hilltop fortress.

In 1868 General Napier had successfully led a British rescue mission to free 21 European hostages that King  Tedros took after the British government failed to respond to his request for military assistance.

Emperor Tedros is hailed by the region’s nationalists as a unifier while many present-day Ethiopians and Eritreans consider him a brutal expansionist who was relegated to the sidelines of Ethiopian history until he was rehabilitated towards the end of Haile Sellasie’s rule.

To remedy the situation, the Isaias visit was repackaged to appear as a tripartite meeting by hastily inviting President Mohammed Abdullahi Formaggio of Somalia as a face-saving ploy.

Abdullahi Formaggio arrived in Gondar one day after he was invited and accepted Dr. Abiy’s rash invitation in goodwill without realizing his presence was needed to cover-up and legitimize Isaias’ visit.

Several Somali politicians do not approve of their country’s interference in the Ethiopian-Ethiopian rivalry, or Ethiopian-Eritrean politics, that aim at squeezing the Tigrai regional government led by the TPLF.

Even after months of the much publicized “normalization” of relations with Ethiopia, Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea is still on a revenge mood to destroy his arch-enemies, the TPLF of Tigrai region. Observers in the region believe Dr. Abiy is playing in tandem with Isaias and in the plot.

Insiders informed Gedab News that “the three leaders are coordinating with the UAE to encircle and isolate Djibouti.” The UAE and Djibouti are not in good terms since “Dubai Ports World is bitter because Djibouti frustrated its attempts to control all the ports of the Horn of Africa region.”

Meanwhile, on Friday, while the three leaders were socializing in Gondar, three car bombs exploded around the Sahafi Hotel in Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital. Twenty-two people were killed and eighteen injured in an attack for which Al Shabab claimed responsibility.

A fourth bomb exploded as rescuers were rescuing the injured and a gun battle followed the incident. Reportedly, four of the assailants were killed in addition to the two suicide bombers killed in the cars.

On December 23, 2009, the UN Security Council Resolution adopted 1907 imposing sanctions on Eritrea due to Isaias Afwerki’s involvement and support of the Somali Al-Shabab group. The UN sanction is still enforced.

The Isaias government also supported the Yemeni Houthi rebels until three years ago when it switched sides. Since then it has been allied with the Saudi led coalition, providing an air and naval base on the Red Sea coast for the UAE forces that are involved in the bombing of Yemen.

            Hi FM,
            Well, that question should be directed at IA, not us. He told us the issue was not a border, but a conspiracy by outside force to undermine the unique government. He also made it clear that those who dwell on the border issues are traitors. So, you have been barking on the wrong tree.

            More than the USA, the unspoken bogeyman in the open, but a talk in their kitchen table for the PFDJites are the “Eritrean Muslims”. It has been so since the inception of Selfi-nasenet in 1970 by the evil man at the top of the state of Eritrea. Until we talk the real problem, we will never find a solution to our social ills.

      Don’t mind KS and the other guy because they don’t really mean it . After all both ELF and EPLF are gone unless you wanted to bring Sagim . We Eritreans are proud of our history and only these with backward heads are counting what they did in the bad times ( where two brothers fought in the opposite direction) and I personally think we should not dwell in this issue anymore . We have to fight to build a better society for the next generation as ours seems cemented in our second country. KS tried to make Sabe journey as the journey of innocence and he can do it because what exactly can we lose unless we already know the ሜዳ ኤርትራ ካብ ሓደ ውድብ ንላዕሊ ክሕዝ ዓቕሚ የብሉን kind of song .

    Hi hope
    The sanctions hurt the regime economically is not the same as Economic Sanctions. The latter is devestating in all spheres. Death tolls are much higher and usually catastrophic state collapse may follow. We need to be clear on the terms used here. Thanks

    • Amanuel Hidrat

      Selam Hailat (Haile-TG),

      There are many Eritreans who can not differentiate between “Economic isolation” and “Economic sanction”. The former are taken by individual countries and organizations voluntarily, while the later is enforced as depicted with its mechanism.

      • haileTG

        Hi Emma,

        I think so! As you know when Iraq was put under economic sanctions, it was estimated that more than 500, 000 children died. All forms of economic activities are blockaded and medical supplies were sent in through UN supervised chains. Oil exports were strictly monitored and the country brought to its knee. Eritrea closely escaped it when Nevsun and other mining companies lobbied intensively and SA drafted a watered down resolution. The IA regime had almost gotten the country destroyed and was in no position to defend itself. How wonderful would it have been if the supporters were to be awakened even for a split second to realize what IA does to them!

    • Hope

      Selamat Haile TG:
      Thanks for the feedback.
      But,big Bro,we are NOT talking about Linguistics here but about the ‘de facto FACTS”and realities on the ground as well the practical devastating impacts of the sanctions irrespective of the language or terms used.
      Thanks for reminding me to add this:
      The major devastating impact of the Illegal sanctions is for creating an “Inhospitable and a non-conducive’ Environment for the potential Investors to do business and to invest.
      This has been confirmed by the Investors and the ‘Think Tanks”.
      One more thing:
      If you guys are arguing that the sanctions were targeted and not economic sanctions but Arms Embargo only,does it mean that you supported the Arms Embargo?
      If so,does mean that you supported the serious impact the Arms Embargo has had on our EDF?
      Did you know that our EDF specially in the Western Front,did not have enough AK-47 Magazines/bullets and hand Grenades let alone to have basic Air defense Systems in Sawa,where low flying Ethiopian Helicopter Gunships were able easily to destroy the SAWA Camp and the unarmed Trainees?
      Did you also know that the Cargo carrying those essential ammunition t help out our poorly equipped EDF from Belgium was spotted and confiscated by the arms embargo Sanction regime on its way to Eritrea/
      My response to you and to Aman Hidrat are deleted or blocked as are most f my comments despite that I never use any offensive or disrespectful language.
      The short summary of my previous response to you is:
      -For the most part,the sanctions were proven to be politically motivated and most of the criteria presented were found to be FAKE and orchestrated and engineered by none but the bloody enemies of Eritrea(The TPLF and its mercenaries like Uganda,Kenya,Somalia and Djibouti and fully backed up by their Masters in the West)
      The Role of the PFDJ Gov in helping the Al Shebab was minimal as confirmed repeatedly ,including by the same biased SEMG
      -The PFDJ could not have any chance let alone a capacity to mess up with the geo-political Interest of the West,rather,it BEGGED and lobbied for the USA to get a spot in our Red sea(ask sec Ramisfield and check the Wikileaks)
      -The PFDJ Gov only attempted to bring together the Somalis of all walks of life so to solve their problems in UNISON by their own initiative.
      -The UN,the UNMEE,the USA and its Diplomats and Commanders were directly involved against Eritrea.

    Well, there is not much I would say at this time
    as our political culture and freedom of free expression has regressed or erroded so much
    either as a result of the pfdj implemented rule
    and political system , the choice to conform
    and blindly follow the rules or the low political
    conciosness and illiteracy of the masses or
    the cowadice and opportunist and mediocity
    of the middle class and the intelligentsia the
    decades long struggle to come up to one voice
    and a party that represents this voice at home
    and abroad for the people seems to be on hold
    and not yet materialized or actualized to me. At
    such a point in history it is only better for me to
    reflect, contemplate and think deeper to fully and
    thoroughly understand the past and present
    of the country and society , draw lessons and
    chart and navigate the future endeavour and
    journey . Social and individual progress is only
    realized with fully understanding the past and
    the present and the lessons learned from it and
    applying the valuable lessons taken to the future
    or futuristic journey.

  • Amanuel Hidrat

    Selam Alex,

    Since you are decent, I will engage you when you do these: Pull the actual “UN sanction document”, then we will debate on it. If individual countries took any step against the regime depending on their policy, it is not part of the sanction. Example, Germany and EU. So we should not mix the nature of the sanction imposed by the UN and the positional action taken by individual countries. Both issues stand by themselves independently. Do that as homework. And get back to me.

    Second, IMF and World bank do not give loans for countries that have “state owned economy”. May be if we have economist in this form may help to educate us.

    • Blink

      Dear Mr.Amanuel
      They do ( world bank and IMF ) do give loans to states who has state owned businesses, don’t go far because you have seen it for 27 years with weyane . IMF is the sole loan giver to weyane developmental economics. There are 189 countries who somehow accessed the organization and don’t tell me all of them are wild Wild West . The fact that you openly tried to silence shows your sheer determination to get away with what you see it fitting.

    Selamat George,

    I am not diverting the theme. As an Eritrean I am asking what I do not know about Eritrea from my fellow Eritreans and I get the answer from real Eritreans. If you think there is peace in Eritrea, it is better to refer books or search in internet to understand the meaning of peace. I talk about the killing of a single person who is the cause of all problem happened to Eritrean people in the last 27 year and you become outrageous as if I am planing to assassinate a peaceful ordinary Eritrean. What about thousands of Eritrean dies in GoE prison, in Sahara desert, Mediterranean sea and etc, does it concern you? If you are real Eritrean and work for Eritrean people betterment, push your lunatic President to make reform.
    You heard his last interview, how ignorant he is about Eritrean people. They said there will be a second interview about Eritrea internal situation, but no time given. Even you and your likes (walking dead person blind supporter) do not have the courage to ask the date. Only animals commanded by human order without question. Humans created to be free and choose what they wants, even God did not force us to do what he said us he tells us that there will be a consequence for all choices. Jesus teach us to ask to say why. God gave us a choice to choose and bear the consequence.
    I wish you to come to your sense and exercise your natural right given by the creator GOD.

    Have a nice day

  • Abraham H.

    Selam Awatista, toothless UN sanctions or no sanctions, the stock price of Nevsun is unchanged as I write this post. In normal countries, one would expect an explosive stock price rise, but not in case of Eritrea, which is anyway a country held under DIA-imposed sanctions internally.
    As long as Eritrea is under the mercy of the despot and his hecnchmen, one can forget any meaningful improvement in the economy and politics of the country.

    • Blink

      Dear Abraham
      The mining industry stock prices especially these small companies have closed down than 1.67% or more and if you know why you wouldn’t say the above comment. Nevsun stockes increased price through out the year is healthy infact some people do made money , the stock price you should focus now is Dankali not nevsun as the company is in transition from management to management and it influences. The day Weyane lost 4 kilo was the day the market started so if you read some correction in the market after 3 or 4 months is natural.

      • Abraham H.

        Selam Blink, thanks for investment advice:-)), but no matter how negligible any investment from me, I would NEVER invest in DIA-owned stocks, NEVER!

    • FishMilk

      Hi Abraham H. News of a likely release of U.N. sanctions on Eritrea become known to the investment community back in mid-August when per share price was around $3.75. It has since raced north to over $4.40 per share today. Best you don’t invest any of your money in the stock market!

      • Berhe Y

        Hi Abraham,

        Lundin mining offered to buy Nevsun for 4.75 per share when the stock was trading around 3.82. Then a Chinese company named Zijin offered to pay 6 per share and the board approved. It’s going through transition and the share price is reflected based on what’s in the pipeline (if the deal go through).

        The Canadian company Sun Ridge Gold was sold to Chinese Company. There was an Australian company sold to the Chinese when it was getting ready for production. Nevsun is the last one to be sold to the Chinese.

        The other mining company (Potash, Denkali something) is in it’s initial stage and not started production as yet.

        Selam FM, my bad, I see the news of possible sanctions lifting has already been priced in on september. But one would expect a further movement up on the very day of the sanctions lifting, not?

        • FishMilk

          Hi Abraham H. It has been a bad trading day and NSU is now slightly up which is not bad. In general, sentiment is that mining stocks are now undervalued, especially with consideration given to the recent drop in oil prices. However, I am not buying into NSU for a number of reasons. Instead, I am now going long and buying large cap oil stock as I am convinced prices will recover quickly. Maybe I will end up taking a bath. Time will tell.

    • Amanuel Hidrat

      Selam Abraham,

      It wasn’t economic sanction as you know it. The sanction only prohibits military purchases and travel bans for few leaders of PFDJ. So by its nature the sanction was toothless. However, PFDJ has used the “border” issue and the “sanction” as reasons for holding hostage to the Eritrean people. Now that the border issue and the sanction are out of their ways, expect new excuses for continuing the suffering of the Eritrean people. For those who are sold their souls to tyranny, they will remain committed to the despot and his agendas even if they are at the edge of a cliff of no return. They are determined to live and die with him. That is how bad they are brainwashed.

  • haileTG

    Hello Awatista,

    Could saay or somebody translate to PFDJ that the sanctions are lifted, finished, finito, go home…or something like that. Because, the regime is refusing to leave it alone! It tweeted today “…The government and people of Eritrea will not thus abandon their
    efforts for truth and justice with the mere lifting of the sanctions.”
    Are they saying they will not rest until TPLF and United Nations are completely overrun and become no more 🙂

    • Nitricc

      Hi Haile; actually I am amazed Eritrea got away. Normally sanctions are very difficult to lift but when they do lift; it is negotiated. They ask you to give up something in order the sanction to be lifted but in this case Eritrea gave up nothing. I think the UN could have asked the prisoners to be freed or promise to implement the constitution; something but no. Amazing!!!

      • David Samson

        Hi Nitricc,
        There is always a catch!
        The resolution is drafted by the UK because UK’s companies are lining up to milk Eritrean’s mines. Rightly or wrongly, the sanction was imposed because IA was destabilising the entire Horn region. He has now mended his ways. Well, until his next round— that may come when he finally falls with Abiy— and we then go the full circle again, but hopefully by that time, IA will have handed his baton to his son.

      • haileTG

    Hi Girmay; you said ” The horn of Africa is definitely in its days of darkness” The truth is Girmay, the horn of Africa never looked so bright. Do you know the reason is?

It is only about time before the people of Tigray are freed and join the light and peace of the horn.

    Hi All. EFFORT (Endowment Fund For Rehabilitation of Tigray) Is the next TPLF mafia organization on the chopping block. The TPLF best quickly remove the name ‘SUR Construction’ from their new high rise building on Bole while a lot of other companies should temporarily close shop to include: Mesebo Cement, Mesfin Engineering, Maichew Particle Board, Romanat Packaging, Almeda Textile, Sheba Leather, National Geotextile, Guna Trading, Hiwot Agriculture, Bruh Tesfa Irrigation, Raya Field Agroprocessing, Abergelle Livestock, Evana Mining, Saba Stones, Trans Ethiopia, and Addis Pharmaceuticals.

    • Nitricc

      Hi FM; I never this will happen to the TPLF thugs but it seems they woke up a sleeping giant. When PMAA came to power, it was all about forget and forgive. His plan was simply to forget what TPLF thugs did as long as they went away. Instead of TPLF thugs just walk away and keep their money they tried to kill PMAA and spread violence all over Ethiopia. Well, PMAA hit back and we are where we are. The US and its embassy is working and helping PMAA. I suspect the late agreement reached between TPLF and PMAA is the work of the US. it is a matter of time that Getachew Asefa is apprehended, thanks to the US.

      • FishMilk

        Hi Nitricc. It is really incredible. Not surprisingly, I do not see any of the many TPLF sympathizers here, condemning the shameful TPLF attempt to take PMAA’s life.

  • Selam

    Selamat All,

    yesterday I have heard an interview by Tewodros Tsegay (the blind journalist) with Ethiopian historian (Dr.). In the interview the Dr. said ” Eritrean use Amharic language in their court system before Italian colony and at the early Italian Colony” did we ever used Amharic language for our administration purpose willingly. Can someone say something who has a better knowledge about it.
    Why Ethiopian historians are lying or selective when it comes to Minilike, Haileselassie and Eritrea?

    have a nice day

    • David Samson

      Selam Selam,

      There was not country, or state named Eritrea before Italian’s colonisation. Most regions have their own local laws, so I do not know where the DR got his information. But I am not surprised by his claims. There is a comic Ethiopian historian named ‘Tekele’(Forget his last name). He has a thick Gojama accent and has written a book on Ethiopia’s history. He must be from unknown planet. Whenever I want to have a fun, I listen to his interviews. He holds deep hatred towards TPLF but along with Dr Kebede has gone back to Ethiopia. One thing I have come to terms with many Ethiopians is the fact that, they are unable to accept that Ethiopia, as with many African countries, was made by Europeans (By default).

    • Blink

      Dear Selam
      First Teodrose is one of the ቀይ ባህራችን lunatics which means he will go on hunting more lies , second the Dr. is known to make grand lies about Eritrea, remember this doctor at one occasion said “ Benamir has been saying they are Ethiopians “ , so put the new Amharic in court lies with that . The fact is Eritreans didn’t use Amharic in their court because they don’t know if it exist in a court system as they were introduced with the language as a killing medium, third Eritreans used to have their own laws based on their own traditions ( law landers and highlanders) were using their own language. So his lies must stop with Rahbot radio of the evil blind guy called tedrose . I hope he go side way of the pedestrian and slightly down to rush hour .

      The lies has been like that for ever and I would like to tell you but some people will accuse me of racism .

      By the way Eritrea existed just as equals of most nations on real time than lies of 3000 .

      Hailesilassie used to carry a German girl hair in his እጀ ጠቢብ ,remember that.

        If u wanna know what i think of “k’eye bahirachen”, i can tell u this, i believe 110% eritrea is eritrea and eritrea is independent country, and eri ports r no different from other ethiopia neighbours port, like Djibouti, somalia,sudan and kenya ports.
        And i also believe ethiopia has to choose the best facility and prize when it choose which port to use, it got to be strictly business and am sure it will be strictly business.

          Sorry sir , it was not meant to you or about you sir . I just didn’t understand the different spellings of the name . There is a blind guy called Teodrose in America ( the one who asked PM Abiy about sea access ) .

    One of your aboyes said if they exposed our hyenas and we do the same. He is law life scumbag but at least in his own way he is honest.

    Are you telling us that tplf shall continue its brutality in Ethiopia?
    Are you telling us tplf has been done good for all Ethiopia?
    Are you saying since tplf is made of tigrians dont touch it?

    As far as I know all the thieves and criminals are running to Mekele.

    Hei Girmay.
    What went wrong with the old one? Like borrowing in the name of Ethiopia and looting Ethiopians?

    I think when woyanes were in Dededbit they saw Robin Hood with a terribly wrong tigrinya subtitle. You dont rob from poor Ethiopians to make Tigrians rich.. That was not the spirit of Robing Hood.

    Selamat Awatista,

    Suppose you have an unruly son who ends up breaking a law and sent away on a long 10 year jail term. When his time is up for release, as an older person, broken, squandered his youth, vitality and opportunities, what kind of father would wait at the gate and find a moment of pride, joy and celebration? You would expect a sorrowful father, pleased with his son’s release, yet humbled and saddened by what had befallen to his hopes, dreams and aspirations.

    Ten years after the imposition of an arms embargo on the rouge regime of IA by the UN, after the humiliation of Eritrea as a twin of the war ravaged Somalia, after flat out refusal to condemn al shebab equivocally, after inviting Somali leader under UN terror watch list to the country, after attracting a stark warning by the US to be bombed into Taliban’s Afghanistan, ten years later, the criminal regime of IA is due to be release from its jail time of UN censure. This would be a sad time to reflect on what has become of a nation that was brought back from the ashes of 30 year long war. This would have been a time to swallow one’s pride and humble oneself to value what one have, least they lose it foolishly.

    The supporters of the regime seem to repeat the same mistake over and over again. Empty pride! This can only be the hallmark of total loss of compass. The removal of the UN sanctions comes at a time Eritrea is cornered fully into intractable foreign conflicts. At a time its people see no reason to stay put in their country, at a time the nation deeply divided and wounded by traumatic decades, what do the supporters find to celebrate by the ending of a long stayed sanctions, for reasons that can only be surmised to be even more detrimental external interests?

    It is unlikely that some fellow Eritreans, will ever gain their baring and find sense of direction about Eritrea’s reality, because their minds have been heavily assaulted by their hateful feelings towards TPLF. They may even at times get a glimmer of the abyss that Eritrea is in, however their feeling towards TPLF is far too powerfully negative to the point that it has rendered them asylum cases. What to do??

    • FishMilk

      Hi haile TG. You are missing the point. A bad PIA/PFDJ dictatorship and a bad situation Inside of Eritrea simply does not justify U.N. sanctions Being wrongly slapped on Eritrea. One’s hate against the PIA/PFDJ regime should should not blind justice.

      • Amanuel

        Hi FishMilk
        Sanctions are imposed on countries as the result of bad behaviour by their government. BTW it was imposed because IA’s destabilising actions in the region not the bad situation inside Eritrea.
        The ineffective arms embargo and targeted sanctions didn’t affect the Eritrean people, as they were already sanctioned by IA. Actually it was helping the dictator in captivating people like you.

        • FishMilk

          Hi Amanuel. The United Nations Security Council Resolution 1907 imposed sanctions on Eritrea on the basis of supplying weapons to al-Shabab Islamic militants opposed to the Somali government and for refusing to resolve a border dispute with neighboring Djibouti. The United Nations Monitoring group has never been able to find an evidence to support Eritrea supplying weapons to al-Shabab and everyone knows the U.S. political motivation at the time in regards to Djibouti. If the United Nations Security Council would have rightly slapped sanctions on Ethiopia, back when the TPLF refused to abide by the EEBC final and binding decision, there would then have never been sanctions slapped on Eritrea.

          • Amanuel

            Hi FishMikl
            Pease read the first monitoring group report. They indeed have found evidence including flight numbers. You are confusing with the subsequent reports that said “there is no evidence Eritrean continues support” The term CONTINUES is important.

            As per your second point. I think the UN had a moral duty to pressure Ethiopian to abide by the border ruling and vacated Eritrean territory, but I don’t think it has a legal ground for sanctions. The case was of a tribunal set up by the two countries involved.

          • FishMilk

            Hi Amauel. The UN Monitoring Group has never been able to substantiate even its earlier claims. UN sanctions on Eritrea were purely political. Illegal occupation of one U.N. member State (Eritrea) by another U.N. member State (Ethiopia) certainly should have been subject to U.N. sanctions. To recall that the Ethiopian-Eritrean Boundary Commission (EEBC) was appointed by the Secretary General of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) in consultation with the Secretary General of the United Nations and the two parties.

      • haileTG

        Hi FM,
        Please see at my response to blink. Those who look into the sanctions in view of their support to the regime or personal grudge with TPLF are missing the point. IA involved in Somalia without Bayto approval. The country was nearly destroyed. Now the powerful outsiders decided to change the game, IA still has no Bayto approval. The last guy who asked him to get Bayto approval is probably beaten to death by now. What do you say?

      isn t what eritrea has been accused as if nice word and peace of paper suffice to fix Eritrean problem ,thank god opposition didnt succeed cause this the kind of democracy they wanted for Eritrea ,so they can loot ,kill and divide our people along side ethnic and religion , nothing else .
      all who carry Eritrean Mask here ,your propaganda to unify eritrea with the other side is over ,you cannot build a great nation by trick or change history by lies ,in fact more than ever Eritrean will never thrust you ,even the we are brother will never work , ,all of you will pay for the misery of eritrean and ethiopian

      • haileTG

        NH,

        I am glad you believe in karma. Can we also say PFDJ’s disasater was from its karma too? BTW the only way to get rid of bad karma is through good karma (karma means deeds). Your enemy’s bad karma won’t get you good karma. Karmic allocation is non-transferable. You own your own karma, you die with it and get reborn with it. PFDJ can’t get rid of its karma without changing its immoral ways.

      Dear Haile TG
      There were a group of thieves that lived from the coffers of a blind old woman , these thieves are used to the lousy care of this blind old woman and sometimes they even take shower inside her house with a vacuume cleaner running crazy ,she was always lousy and this lousy ness come from the disappointment of her grown up kids , she did mention this in here diary . The neighbors bread man was so mean that he hired her kids to serve him for a piece of bread and the home work he gave to them was horrific that even the common understanding between theives could not bare to see.

      One day these thieves lost the bread store due to the sudden wake up of this blind 10 sense and that was the presence .

      Haile , I know you can construct a beautiful script but the audience , ah the audience , come on . You know the basis of sanctions was all lies but you choose to go with the wind anyway.

      I have to admit though , I just smiled and brush it off as daily rym .

      • haileTG

        Selamat Blink,

        Please look at these two cases:

        1 – Eritrean regime was involved in the conflict in Somalia during the US/Ethiopia intervention.

        2 – Every single case or allégation made against the regime in relation to #1 above may or may not be true.

        If you agree with 1 and 2 above, the the regime deserved to be sanctioned. The argument gets dishonest when we only base it on #2. As long as #1 is true, then the regime must explain itself why it couldn’t see it coming that the Eritrean people would be exposed by losing their right to legally defend themselves through imposition of arms embargo. Worse still, the country would have been bombed had the Somali terror group had done something in US.

        To argue that #1 was false is impossible, thus #2 is the normal case with everthing and not different or unique to this case.

        • Blink

          Dear Haile TG
          My argument was always that Eritrea did not aid Al-Shebab and if that is not what ever you have in mind to connect with Somalia, well , let’s be honest the Islamic court would have saved millions of people but weyane got in the way and gave Somalia to Al-shebab . Remember also Haile these who come to Asmera and hade conference were not all crazy guys and none from them was calling for Al shebab to be armed . I think we all should ask the Somalianas to forgive us for stopping them to solve their problem on their own while the Bush and Obama committed a genocide in Somalia . Did you know some of the people who come to asmera has been included in the western incumbeted Somalia previous governments ? Haile there was too much accusations about Eritrea in related to Somalaia but none of them were true . All of them were false . So your points 1 and 2 have no basis . Not a single thing was found except the Meles built case like the arms , air plans , 2000 soldiers and so much so that to make it believable by rice or frazer .

          • haileTG

            Selam Blink,

            Once you are involved in a conflict, it really doesn’t matter how you’re hit. It is fair game. In as much as you will be putting somebody’s life at risk, those in receiving end will do anything within their power do their part of the equation.

            I agree that Eritrea did absolutely nothing because IA did it all without any authorization from the people (kuntrat zhabeni yelen). Uganda’s President visited Eritrea when a severe form of economic sanctions were being considered to devastate the country along the regime. All this was directly instigated by IA because he acted against the will of the Eritrean people.

            #1 above is absolutely true including pulling off IGAD

            #2 is about IA getting totally owned in the process and having had a run for his money 🙂

          • haileTG

            Hey Blink,

            You see the regime may have had a rational but it didn’t have have the
            means or power to put its rational into practice. But IA being the
            deluded that he is, he went full blast and got burnt badly. He is doing
            exactly the same thing now, following his insatiable urge for grandeur.
            Suppose you believe he didn’t support Al shabab, and further other
            Eritreans believe he did (like the Ex minister of information who
            testified), how do we verify? Isn’t that proper to investigate? Even
            internal investigation? Any allegation stands as allegation until proven
            otherwise. Anyways, this is now history.

            Going to the prostitute
            metaphore, I think there will not be much business for smaller
            prostitute when the big prostitute called IA is in town and running all
            over the place 🙂

It’s is disheartingly sad to relate in retrospect failures and shortcomings that bewilder us and make us express regret about how could have been easy then to resolve menacing problems had there been awareness and will to negate the “let the rat pass for sake of “mogogo” attitudes, and not postpone treatment of a disease in its early phase to fester on to terminal killer tumor. Worse than that (at the present time) is the fact, even at this stage of the disease, the ruinous ‘fear of the unknow’ socio-cultural conservative outlook is still alive and kicking.

    Dear Eritreans: Of the UN sanction. REMEMBER, it was advanced by those who didn’t have the interest of the ordinary Eritrean in mind, and it is lifted by those who don’t have the interest of the ordinary Eritrean in mind. It was put on those who didn’t care about the welfare of the ordinary Eritrean and is lifted from the same people who still couldn’t care less about the welfare of the ordinary Eritrean. Tomorrow will come and pass, and the savage sanction put on the ordinary Eritrean will continue…and so shall the fight to remove it. Don’t be bothered or distracted by the hand-shake between those who don’t have your interest in their mind and those who don’t care about your welfare. stay focused!

  • Mitiku Melesse

    Hei all.
    From beginning to now the brutality of Tplf caused by the sever need for hiding the looting of 100 million people for the sake of 5 millions. The more they loot the more information to look after thus more people to be silenced. As time went on the silencing of the mass became part of tplf big motto ” We were great and we shall become great”. The motto was a fantastic one besides it two short comings. 1) When tplf says it it makes it sound as the motto is for all Ethiopians but what they mean is Tigray
    2) The method for achieving the motto is looting Ethiopians.

    So the motto after 27 years looting ended up ” we were woyanes and we remain woyanes”. ሽፍታ ነበርን ሽፍታም እንደሆንን እንቀራለን…

        Hi Blink,

        I said the people of Tigray, yes you can’t disappear them. It’s not this DNA or that DNA, you can’t win against any people. As ERITREAN you should know this by now. The French and the American lost in Vietnam, the French lost in Algeria, the Russians lost in Afghanistan, the US is bogged down in Iraq, the Ethiopians in Eritrea, Ethiopia in Somalia, the Saudi in Yemen etc… its always the case. You can’t win against people who have nothing to lose.

I am always that way,,None stop but correctly now the peace journey of horn will never affect me as well us the lift of sanction,,None of all those rubbish games, if noted in the past I was the one who calmed that the sanction shouldn’t affect us,,our struggle is for democratic Eritrea..

            Since Pfdj sanction the struggle continued outside of Eritrea. And now both positions and oppositions are all over the world where there is the best internet connection to fight and win the cyber war for justice and equality in Eritrea.

            Hei Teodros.
            He is telling you Tplf mean Tigrians. But when we say tplf and tigraians are inseparable at least for the time being then we get all sorts of damnation.

            But one thing is common for all of us. All tplf members are Tigrians. Even the enemy amharas must have Tigrians in their puppet organization as leaders. The motto was not only we be come great but irradiate what ever belongs to amhara. .

        Many Tigrians have no idea how the rest of Ethiopians were terrorized by derg for 17 years. They are brain washed that derg has terrorized only Tigrians. Here is one good example how one great artist by the name Tesfaye Gessesse illustrated by his brilliant drama ”ራስህን አጋልጥ” meaning expose yourself immediately after derg came victorious by killing 100 thousands any one who opposed the Socialist Revolution.The drama depicted the reality so perfect that when the derg authority screaming on the Kebele residences ራስህን አጋልጥ it is always double the number of the actors who sat among the public came to the stage. At the end of the drama it was always announced ” We are sorry for those of you who are not actors and came to the stage. We kindly wait for you to go back to your seats while the light is off”. The drama was forbidden when derg morons found out the message of the drama.

        My point here is when derg was out and woyane invaded us with so many ”woyanes”, guns, tanks etc for the majority of us is just a continuation of the derg terror. Oromos thought their ‘woyanes’ made them free from derg but it was short lived when tigre woyanes killed and outlaws the Olfs.

      Leaving aside the sentionalizing, lets remember that all these was done with legal proceedings. A parliamentary committee studied and approved it, a magistrate sent an arrest warranty etc. The compare and contrast need to be mentioned vs what has been practiced in our own land.

            What happens if you one day, say Friday night, you sleep like the PFDJ and when you wake up, you have no calendar to tell you the date. Your cell phone, radio and everything you check displays a message: the system was corrupted and calendar syatem is irreparable. Will it still be Saturday morning? What if you have slept for 27 years without realizing? Will it still be Saturday? I hope the PFDJ and its satellites will tell us once they wake up. Until TOMORROW, cheers dear.

          • Mitiku Melesse

            Hei KS.
            The sanction is lifted by hard work. A hard work which put a boundary for the greed of Tplf. Off course after the sanction is lifted the economy of Eritrea is going to be boosted.

          • Kokhob Selam

            Dear Mitiku,

            No, not at all. The justices will unite and push PFDJ again not to give him chance..the PFDJ junta is not able to live in peace,,this group is totally against nature and see what will happen..again the UN knows this fact..really, I am telling you so because I have enough experience of this group..this corrupted group will soon pay the price of long years crime,,that is all,,

            Not sure if I mentioned it before but I am a big fan of Carlo Rovelli. He is one of the highly regarded personalities in the Sciences particularly in Theoretical Physics. He is now in his 60s. He says, when he was third year student majoring in Physics in Italy, he started to get obsessed about the nature of time and made it an area of his main focus to this day. And he has written a number of books about the nature of time among others. I have read two of his books.

            The reason, I asked you, “when is tomorrow” was to drive the topic into that area but obviously Dopamine is shooting up everywhere in the Forum for the Weyanes are crumbling before our eyes. Maybe for another time when the Weyanes are completely gone to MS’ delight and others. Even if it is going to take forever to get rid of the Weyanes, I will wait for the topic about “Time” is fascinating to say the least.

      Hi MS
      1) You remind me my friend who is die hard Man United supporter. When ever Man United wins, he calls me and rub it on my face. I think this issue is Ethiopian and don’t be catholic above the pop. Please don’t write to annoy others. Write because you care or to convince others.

      2) You mentioned the so called UN sanction, which was only in name. If it is going to be lifted, I think it will be only a positive thing for Eritrean struggle for justice and democracy. I.e, less excuses to continue the status quo.
      3) The Elephant in the room you are avoiding to discuss these days is the main sanction imposed up on Eritrean people by IA and his regim. If you are true Eritrean (unless you areተደምረሃል) I urge to spend what ever available time you have in helping the Eritrean people come out of this absolute dictatorship.

      Selam Mahmuday, those guys might have stolen some money, but what do you say about those in Asmara who have stolen an entire country with all its contents.

        Abraham,
        What’s wrong with you! We should be obsessed with the destruction of Tigray while we watch our own being destroyed. You should learn that the love of Eritrea is accentuated by the hate of Tigray. That is luxury of caring as per goitana Isaias. Learn to sing PFDJ wey mot, and I thought EPLF and PFDJ were different. Some people are trying hard to make me unlearn that.

        • FishMilk

          Hi Saleh Johar. You sarcastically say ‘We should be obsessed with the destruction of Tigray’. Is anyone here fomenting such obsession? Is there not a separation of the TPLF and Tigray?

  • Blink

    Dear Girmay
    I know no one who accuse the Tigray people in general and I know no one who wish bad ills to ordinary Tigrians and I will not take it from you such accusations that Tigrians are in danger because they never was . Yes you are right Tigrians will stay and prosper and their prosperity is just beginning because it was not even started but for this to start TPLF bloody guys must go. Just to inform you shaebia died long time ago , it is just you did not notice , every worthy Eritrean knows this .

  • Nitricc

    Hi Girmay; I think it is a good news. General Dangew was captured by Tigryan special forces. it means that PMAA and the government of Tigray are in the same page. If you ask me, the sooner you exposed the wanted leaders the better the people of Tigray are. I am telling you this is good for the people of Tigray. regarding the Amara elites; well you were stronger and formidable force when Eritrea was on your side but unfortunately, you choose to be on the side of Amara and Oromo to destroy Eritrea. what can I say Karma is a bitch. However repair your relationship with Eritrea and then you shall be fine. if you had Eritrea on your side all this will never happened.

    • Kim Hanna

      Selam Nitricc,

      “..if you had Eritrea on your side all this will never happened.”

      All MS’s and your wailing about the oppressed Amharas and Oromos the last couple of years was empty, malicious and disingenuous, wasn’t it.
      I knew it all the time.

      Here, you just said that if Tigray and PIA were on the same side you would have been just fine oppressing the Amhraras, Oromos and the rest.
      Not that it will make any difference, I just wanted to clarify it to you in its raw form what you were and are saying.

      Mr. K.H

      • Mitiku Melesse

        Hei, Hanna.
        That is how it works for woyanes and their likes. In case you dont know that is the difference between you and them.

      • Nitricc

        Hi Kim; One thing everyone must understand is that one oppressing the other never works. So, when you say ” if Tigray and PIA were on the same side you would have been just fine oppressing the Amhraras, Oromos and the rest.” No, that is not my intention. Although I can see why you will think as such. What I mean is that If Eritrea were in the side of Tigryans; the Tigryans won’t run for their lives from the Ethiopians. You should understand; the reason the Amara and Oromo emboldened to such degree of hate is because they know the Tigrayns have no where to run; they lost Eritrea. in short; if Tigryans did lose Eritrea, then they won’t be hunted as bad as what we are witnessing.

  • Nitricc

    Hi Girmay; I think it is a good news. General Dangew was captured by Tigryan special forces. it means that PMAA and the government of Tigray are in the same page.

    Often or sometimes I share my research findings

    on this website and you seem to love it so much
    and endorse the findings and results. But soon
    again you get lost in touch and get tired of it so
    sooner than later in a very short time.
    Now I am not sure if you yourself are suffering
    like those of my my sample patients I studied of.
    Should I say you are suffering with
    1. ADD Attention Deficit Disorder which is a very
    serious mental health problem .
    2. Short span of memory and memory loss –
    Another deadly mental illness .
    3. PTSD another deadly mental illness and
    problem in the healthcare field.
    And also more other symptoms detected.
    So I see the need for me to help more and
    again or do you prefer not ?

  • Selam

    Selamat All,

    Finally we hear from Attorney General who plot the killing attempt of PMAA. Inaddition to this some NISS officials accused of human right abuse when they did investigation work and METEC high level officials accused of corruption. It is a good step forward, but the question is would they get a fair trail and have a right to defend themselves or would it be a fake trail process like Weyane did? Do they have a right to accuse those in power now including PMAA? Dr. Abey himself was a member of the party and his life was good, how can he live such a life with a salary of military and with what money did he start his company? What about others like Lema and Dr. Workneh?
    I think everybody from the previous government is corrupted whether with small or huge amount of money. Since there is no small or big corruption the Attorney General should investigate all and accuse accordingly.
    The people of Ethiopia specially investigative journalists be careful, do not be emotional against accused small group but see in depth the past of accusers. Do not allow them to cover up their past with others accusation. No partiality in rule of law and everybody should be equal under the law, otherwise the twinkling light you see in democracy will fade.
    Mengestu raised for equality and justice but we saw what happened. Weyane fight for justice and equality and we saw what happen. At least their slogan was justice and freedom. All it happened because most of the people did not asked them what they are doing before they get grip on power. I mean this is the first test of the new democracy in Ethiopia.

      You said , do the accused has the right to accuse ? And then you added how can Abiy live good life with soldier salary ( trying to make him corrupt) didn’t you know TPLF wanted to arrest Abiy long before he come to be PM ? You need to go deeper so that you can be free from this loaded ifs , but you will not because you go on and on just to arrive at Mengistu time and explain how he raised to power and so on to suggest abiy ks on his way to be Mengistu, listen no one really ever will spend hallucinating after your ifs and so things . Sit tight more is on the pipe . These who ordered to torture people in hidden prisons and did inhuman things are wanted by the law of the current government and the fact that you are so freaking irresponsible to ask if a criminal would have the chance to accuse the PM . We all know on the eyes of a criminal weyane every one is like them but that is not how our world works .

      You will know better after few months. Ethiopians are looking to the sky to look for a weyane missed air plane and ships 🚢 🚢 a lot of them vanished from the coffers of poor Ethiopians . This is the perfect picture of weyane . Weyane sold aid food given to Tigrians in 1984 and made millions yet it was not enough so they go on to loot 1000 million people at sun light that even a hungry dog can see them. I rocked to say this is a good time for my Nevrons , I really do because this is the time to simply root out a toxin group from a poor society that has been humble ever since they come to this world . I can’t explain my happiness to see hayat false lies after lies about the millennium bomb , the theft , the deceitful people of weyane , their cadres and more of them . What a time to be alive and well . For almost 17 years advancing to make sure weyane got caught is finally paying off .

      • Berhe Y

        Hi Blink,

        I think it’s best for the sake of Eritrean and Ethiopian people interest if this transition does not take revenge to settle score. There is nothing worse than what IA and his PFDJ has been doing for the Eritrean people.

        Abiy can’t be a tool of IA and go after the TPLF to satisfy him. The people of Tigray may be patient but there is a limit how much they will be pushed around, before they stand to fight.

        You can say all zeraf, zeraf you want, but they never lose in any confrontation, it’s in their DNA. Ethiopia will turn into ashes if this continue.

        A wise leader considers all options and finds a way to set course for peaceful transition without our rocking the boat.

        Mengistu and DERG killer the 60 plus ministers, and set Ethiopia for immesearable bloodshed that costed over a million people. Eritreans also paid heavily because of that decision (the killing of General Aman, and his peaceful initiative to end the war in Eritrea – see video of Saleh Sabe interview after that faithful night).

        Abiy said publicly that butcher Mengistu is even welcome to the country but what needs to happen is extradite him to face justice, instead of seeing (PMHD) meet him and his base openly start cheering the return of Derg.

        He should ask the whereabouts of Colonel Bezabih who is a POW? He was captured alive while paraded in the street of Asmara. What happened to him, why didn’t Eritrea hand him over to the Red Cross. If he is dead he needs to be told to his families.

        Now this may not be of interest to us Eritreans but it shows the criminal character of IA and what Abiy is willing to forgo.

        To be honest, I am really disappointed he is willing to look the other way when thousands of people in Yemen are slaughtered by the alliance of IA, UAE and SA.

        It will not be long his character will be tested and he will soon betray his people. Power is disease and absolute power is just cancer. Soon it will start eating its own people. They all start that way.

        So all of you PFDJiet and those anti TPLF, you really need to think hard before you bring the region in another WAR and misery.

        I am not saying, they should let criminals go free but it needs to excercise with great care, for the better good of many.

        Berhe

        • Blink

          Dear Berhe
          I don’t think TPLF brasses means Tigray people . Let’s face it ordinary Tigrians didn’t benefit from these top brass accounts. A farmer in Tigray did what is asked from him for 5 decades and what did they got ? Let’s not try to make this about Tigrians. This is simply an individuals group that did not represent the ሰርቶ ኣደር Tigrians. Why would you want to paint the general public with the bleedy weyane top brasses ? What exactly are you saying? No one is accusing the Tigrians in this , I simply don’t see that way sir .

          Yes may be the ethnically charged attack on Tigrians needs to be confronted and smashed to garbage bin unless to simply mix the thieves with farmers on all villages is not fair . It is a must the Amhara and Oromo activists need to completely stop the hate attack over Tigrians.

          A wise leader also need to confront his problem heads on before he got caught, Getachew Asfah tried to kill the PM and you wanted the PM to get abused by these criminals. Who is not always a winner and who is always a loser ? Are you suggesting Tigrians are better than others ? Come on everyone is equal but these who committ crimes must fall from their grace .

          Berhe , you see your problem, I never was a PFDJ even for a second but here you are doing it because you can’t really believe your visionaries TPLF top brasses are being caught on their way to Sudan .

          • Berhe Y

            Hi Blink,

            You are on the revenge mission. What you don’t calculate is, to achieve the mission how many innocent lives must be perished. I never said the TPLFis equal to Tigray people, but they have a considerable influence. The pure farmer does not have much option to if told to fight he will fight. The same way the pure ERITREAN people have no choice but when PFDJ told them to fight they just do. That’s life, it always happens.

            I don’t know what history may have been for Eritrea war of independence had it was achieved with peace. Do you think Eritrea population would have been 3.65 million in 60 years from 2 plus million in1952? Even at less 2% growth, it would have been at least 12 million by now.

            But you don’t care the opportunity lost and where we find ourselves as long as you are vindicated.

            The other day you told me that the Kuman population is not even 10,000. That doesn’t bother you for one second? The people can be extinct within few generation? And for what reason?

            The Tigray people will not gamble and hand over TPLF for Amhara or any other group without a fight. This you should expect, because they know what happened to them in the last 100 years. TPLF with all their short comings, they made the Tigray people to be proud again.

            I say you are PFDJ because you can’t live without enemies. You have the same even worse thinking and you want nothing but bloodshed. Human life means nothing to you, I really don’t know what you benefit from.

            TeHagami kelo TeHazi yTerT. Let the people of Tigray sort out their problems.

            If you care about Eritrea, talk about the Eritreans in refugee camps, in Libya detentions, abused, starved to death and killed.

            Money,money they stole, who cares it’s for Ethiopians to worry about.

            How about the money the PFDJ stole with record that we know about.

            Dear Berhe
            You are right , if TPLF told them to fight the farmers will fight and that’s way Abiy is moving fast to cut the cord of TPLF bleedy nose short . Yes you are right on PFDJ too , they asked to fight I did as many Eritreans did and still do ,so many people died and migrated , but this all points you made was not my point sir .

            My point was that for reasons many people know or may not know but my reasons are not based on revenge but a pure humanly possible way of looking things realistically. Weyane dream was to kill Eritrea across ethnic lines and religious lines and for this plan to succeed they kicked Eritrean opposition personalities who opposed the division and by making the Eritrean opposition unwanted they let the bleeding in Eritrea to go on every where . Issias was still on his game and so do his friends but the suggestion that you are not responsible by any measure is not really true.

            Remember ,TPLF dream was not like this and we Eritreans were smashed between the rocks to pass through trenches of mind fields and this was for 90,000 people who made their life better even at the face of Dergi , do you expect we simply will forget that ? Do you think people have short memory? , I wanted you to know that I don’t have any bad feelings for weyane for fighting a war with us but the way they tried to intimidate civilians is simply not easily dissolved to ashes and I am willingly telling you this was a hard campaign that costed money and time , the things I chat with you or any one in this forum is simply not to be counted.

            Hi Blink,

            I never said the TPLF was right when they deported people during the war. The PM has said it was wrong and he took responsibility and admit the wrong. On top of that, the claims commission have done the assessment and put it’s finding, which the Eritrean government accepted. The whole point of reaching agreement of peace is you accept what happened and you move on.

            Now, is Abiy going after TPLF because they deported Eritreans? Is he after the TPLF because the cornered Eritrea and they wanted to do harm to Eritrea? Is IA wants to revenge TPLF because what they did to the Eritrean people?

            From what I read is, correct me if I am wrong, Abiy is after the TPLF (if he is) because of the money the “TPLF leaders” stole.

            As an Eritrean why should this be our concern to the point of the demands coming from IA. You know IA speaks for no body.

            BTW, I started to reply to you, because all you were writing / responding to Selam was in relation to the money the TPLF stole. Nothing to do with Eritreans deported, war, etc.

            As to what TPLF did to Eritrean opposition….ሰብአይ ደልየን ጭሕሚ ጸሊኤን …we went to their country, we asked their help and they do what they can with their own money, their own resources. We can accept, reject and criticize as we want but they don’t have the obligation really to work on our demands.

            Your argument is not even make sense. So IA was upset with TPLF because they didn’t support the Eritrean opposition who wanted to topple him?

            Sure we can comment but, I think it’s best if we focus in our own house and leave it for them to clean their own house.

            Because, this TPLF here and TPLF there is not as easy as you guys wanted to make it believe.

            That’s what the Americans thought when they were going after Saddam (the people of Iraq doesn’t’ support him) ..but 15 years later, they still can’t declare victory after so many Americans lives died and half a million people dead and the whole country is destroyed.

            Berhe

          • Selam Blink,

            I would rather choose to bet that there will be no confrontation as some tplf officials who are burdened with huge corruption and crimes, and are in a precarious situation are saying. Some have already escaped to sudan and others are barking loudly, (case in point getachew reda), who are saying that they are ready to fight again, because they are afraid that tigrayans who know they have sinned, are not going to protect them from facing the law of the land. They are implicating even IA in the imprisonment of metec officials to galvanize the feeling of tigrayans.

            The people of tigray are not naive not to understand that if tplf fights, it will be to save its own skin, and not to defend the interest of tigrayans. Moreover, they know very well that their interest lies with other ethiopians. Tplf was no good to the people of tigrayans as it was no good to the rest of ethiopians.

            The fact that the regional police force took part to apprehend the general who was on the way to escape to sudan, shows that there are groups within tplf who support the reform. These are the clean and the rational, who do not want to sacrifice the people for the sake of those few corrupt people who looted the country and are ready to fight to keep the money for themselves and their families, from which tigrayans will gain nothing. On the contrary, they will face a big loss.

            Those who call for war from far away places and expect victory, should better know that this time, it will be completely different and ugly, and they better restrain their bravado. In addition, those who are ready to fight do not run away.

            What tplf should do is to allow the border between amhara and tigray to return to the status quo ante, apologize, which it has already done partially, and leave power to young not corrupted tigrayans with clean hands. I believe that they will be forced to do that at one point for their own sake, and for the sake of the people. I do not expect them to reform except the few, because they are old and they carry the burden of their atrocious legacy, and they have no place in future ethiopian government. Remember, tplf is the only party that has not allowed young people to the highest positions.

            I hope you are on your right mind when you jotted this advisory note of yours . Be in a clear mind and write without prejudice do you really believe that it was only tigrians who were corrupted in the government ? I think Ethiopia was led by EPRDF and anything good or bad should be the responsibility of EPRDF not only Tigrians . If there is a slim of honesty the EPRDF as a governing body should resin and be responsible for all what happened otherwise its just a dram being played by the Dr. and his groups
            Horizon please clean yourself from hate and stop blaming everything on TPLF . The whole EPRDF was corrupt and is still now corrupt

            Hi Horizon,

            I know you know the term “the buck stops here” and I think the PM will be responsible for what ever happened under his watch. This Getachew guy, wasn’t he the chief security under previous government of HD? Why isn’t HD responsible for what ever the guy suppose to have done? Who was he reporting to? To himself?

            Isn’t the EPRDF government and the cabinet which include others from other region also be responsible for the whole government operation, including approving budget, signing laws (like security law) etc

            Wasn’t the PM as a minister member of that cabinet, and he too was responsible to some of the security / intelligence part of the EPRDF government? Did he not approve to spy on citizens,including Ethiopian Americans..,,where does it end and where does it begin.

            You guys have to see the replication this will lead. To be honest everyone seem to come up with their own demands.., is it about the boarder, is it about corruption, is it about PFDJ,…

            All it takes is someone to declare war and you have civil war. I just can’t imagine having IA and the Saudi crown as a pertners and friends agent’s of hell) one can expect better.

            I don’t think you can think far to understand what is happening.

            The guy who was head of Amahara party (Demeter) was head of Metec during HD time. The same police telling all the crimes committed against the prisoners today was taking not long ago how the police follows the constitution and prisoners rights are respected etc etc. So which side of the story is the truth?

            If they going after corruption, that’s great but why only in the people of Tigray. How about Aba Dula and Lema Zmegersa and others who have all to do with the land / Addis expansion plan?

            Abiy was head of something within the security, doesn’t he have something to do with it.

            This looks like all hands of IA and we know where things headed when you have that person as a mentor. He is the agent of hell.

            I always ignore you, because you do not deserve anything better. You must be a misfit and a sociopath from a broken family, a bozene, who grew up sleeping in the streets, without a family, nobody to look up to, and nobody to teach you any decency, wallowing in your filthy life. Your behavior reflects the low life you have lived and continue to live, a scumbag of society.
            Don’t waste my time. Appreciate when you are ignored by so many in this forum. Try to realize that there is a reason for that, unless you have undergone a lobotomy and incapable for a civilized social life, and we are not aware of it.

          • Selam Berhe Y.,

            The blame goes nowhere. It lies squarely with tplf, for the three decades of killings, disappearances, imprisonments, tortures, and looting. PMAA will be responsible if the culprits are not brought to the court of justice and they go scot-free. Nothing more and nothing less.

            Getachew reda, the guy who says that he will bring back tplf power to addis, was stationed there to pull the strings of the puppet, HD, so that he could dance to tplf tune, was above and not below HD. The former pm was groomed by mz to serve tplf. When HD could not bear anymore the stench of tplf’s dictatorial rule, he was forced to say, he could do nothing from his position and resigned, which resulted in the chain reaction that brought today’s situation.

            Eprdf, the trojan horse, created by tplf to hoodwink the ethiopian people, was a gathering of inept people who enabled tplf’s dictatorial rule by applauding and supporting whatever their master, tplf, said, until they acquired the courage and shook off their back the rider and brought change.

            Some people see on equal terms the small fish with the big fish, those who committed major crimes and embezzlement with petty thieves, those who ate the leftover at their masters table with those who feasted. The few who sat at their master table and feasted equally with them like abdi illey, who committed horrendous crimes of mass murders, tortures and rapes, and others are tasting the same fate as their masters. Nobody is spared. There are amhara and oromo names in the list.

            Why do you see civil war so easily when the main players oromos and amharas are together, and sellouts like olf, who easily forgot that they were outlawed by tplf and most oromos in prison were those accused as olf members, are abhorred and avoided by most oromos, and the problem they create in western wollega will be easily solved, now that the military is in the hands of pm Abiy, and tplf generals and high officers have been expelled or imprisoned.

            What do you expect to happen. Do you think that tplf could invade the rest of ethiopia or the rest of ethiopia will be interested to invade tigray. I believe that nothing of that sort is going to happen. There may be skirmishes at the amhara – tigray borders as it happens all over the world, and it is not going to extend beyond that in both directions and the federal government will not allow it. No one has the capacity or the interest to make a major confrontation out of it, despite what some say without really deep thought, and each one will choose to fight in its own playground and does not want to be a fish in somebody else’s sea, as in the past.

            Finally, IA and foreign governments have no role to play, unless we want to implicate others to make tigrayans feel that they are surrounded by enemies of all kinds. It is a local problem and ethiopians can find a solution for it.

          • Admassie

            Selam Horizon,

            I frequently responding to you is not because I have something against you, but I feel you are a reasonable person to dialogue with regarding a common interest, our country, and I have also respect for you.

            Having said that, I am glad people are brought to justice for their alleged crime. Wheather they are guilt of it, let the due process take its course and give its verdict. But again, as I have said it some other times, it should not be portrayed as one party is responsible for it all unless and other wise the justice expected is winner’s one.

            But, what I want to comment is to your verdict “… tplf should do is to allow the border between amhara and tigray to return to the status quo ante, apologize…”.

            You passed a decision based on what?

            If it is based on rejecting language based federalism, then the status quo ante you refered should include the whole country.

            If you are saying areas previously were in other ከፍለ ሀገር are now in Tigray, and therefore, should return to the previous administrative order, then there are no ክፍለ ሀገር based administratives.

            If you think the people in those areas claimed to belong to Amhara Killil are predominantly Amhara, then you must have facts which you should share with us.

            I am asking you is because I am from one of those areas claimed to be አማራ (ጎንደር) and I want to give you what I know.

            The area I came is called ፀለምቲ. It borders ወልቃይት in the east and ተከዜ ወንዝ in the north. Yes, previously it was under the ጎንደር ክ/ሃገር administration. I was born and grown in this area which is predominantly ትግርኛ ተናጋሪ and my families are still living there.

            My parents moved to the area from near by ደጋ መሬት called በየዳ ወረዳ (currently ጠለምት under አማራ ክልል) predominantly አማርኛ ተናጋሪ. ( I am from mixed family. Both my grandmothers, one from ግጀት-ትግራይ and the other from መንደፈራ-ኤርትራ and my grandfathers from በየዳ-ጎንደር and ሰቆጣ-ወሎ).

            In this area except in the small towns the people speaks ትግርኛ through and through. In the small towns people speaks both አማርኛ and ትግርኛ but predominantly are ትግርኛ ተናጋሪ. There is no a single village which trace Amharic name.

            I beleive when borders are set, the issue was not land, rather it was the people.

            Case in point, the border of Tigray on our side ends approximately 33 km from ተከዜ in to Gonder side . It includes ቡያ፣ ማይፀብሪ፣ ኣዲ-ሓሩሽ፣ ኣዲ-ግርማይ፣ ኣዲ-ወሰነ፣ እምባ-ማድረ and others, but leaving ኣዲ-ኣኹማ፣ ኣዲ-ኣርቃይ፣ ማይ-ቃንጫ፣ ማይ-ተኽሊት ፣ ኣዲ-ደቂ-ዓሊ ፣ በሪ-ማሪያም፣ ሰቋር-ዋልድባ፣ አምበራ፣ ማይ-ዓለቕቲ and others through to ለማልሞ to Amhara Killil for they are predominantly አማርኛ ተናጋሪ.

            There still are አማርኛ ተናጋሪ population living peacefully but no one claims the area belongs to አማራ ክልል.

            We need to grab the facts before we reach to a verdict. Atleast, we need to wait until the responsible authority resolve the situations. Otherwise, some of the ጦር አውርድ ጦር ንቅነቃ and its destortion to realities from some groups will take us to distruction.

            It is not who wins who or “better one side fears for the others are to united!” type of rhetoric. Ultimately we all are to loose as a people and a country! We do not survive any civil war any more! ጣጣው ሲመጣ ደግሞ ይብላኝ ቦታው ላይ ላለነው!!

            Admassie A.

          • Selam Admassie A.,

            The main point is that tplf thought it was powerful and unilaterally took the decision to incorporate these territories without any democratic procedures that involved the people, evicted some and brought some others and created the situation on the ground as it is to day. The core issue may not be to whom the territory belongs to amhara or tigray, but the decision taken unilaterally by the party that felt strong was wrong, undemocratic, and it should be reevaluated, and proper procedures implemented, so that the right decision is taken to which people could abide.

            If we refer to the political map of ethiopia pre-tplf, these areas were within the amhara region, whatever they were called, begemder or wollo. therefore, if somebody thinks that it belongs to it or the other party, negotiations and a referendum should be carried out to decide such very sensitive issues, and not i take whatever i think is mine or this helps me to have a border with sudan or incorporates fertile lands to tigray.

            The people who are demonstrating that they are amharas are not aliens. They are the local population, who are killed and imprisoned. That is why i say that the situation must return to the status quo ante, those who have been evicted returned and those who have been brought to the region over the years to change the demography returned to where they came from (locals know who they are), and after negotiation the right thing done to fulfill the wish of both people. Otherwise, if left as it is today, it will be the pandora’s box for amharas and tigrayans, which if it opens may destroy the region.

            As much as apology is concerned, it was meant mainly for the ethiopian people as a whole, and maybe it was not put in a more clear way.

          • Admassie

            Selam Horizon,

            Thank you for your sober reply.

            I woud agree to your point that the process should have accounted the say of the people.

            Then, your critics would have been better if you were not sipecific to the claims between Amhara and Tigray. For it portrays that your concern is not the process rather it is who claims from whom. Because the map of Killil administrations was set by the same government with similar process with in the same time frame for the whole country. If solution is to be implemented to claims, say to go back to a status quo ante, it should be applied to all claims in the country in a similar manner.

            The stories of engineered demography and eviction or killings, you and me have no way to know the truth except to wait for the responsible authorities investigate and tell the facts. But we should condomn all sorts of killings, abuse and wrong doings. We need to be fair to all sides.

            Regarding the history of adminstration to Gonder/Begiemider and Semien or Wello before EPRDF, I think there is no point to dewll on it for it will take us to more vicious debate.

            But my point was framed based on the current administrative system which is language based. Therefore, which area was administered by which region before EPRDF came in power is: 1. No one denies, those claimed areas were in Gondar and Wello.
            2. Irrelevant to the current reality.

            Admassie A.

          • Selam Admassie A.,

            The news coming out of Meqelle seems to be encouraging. News release after the end of tplf conference seems to support the reform. It says that tplf endorses the effort taken by the federal government to bring to the court of law those who have committed crimes and enriched themselves using their political power, provided it does not target a single ethnic group, and the law is applied equally to all. It seems that the progressive wing of tplf has won, thus denying any support to the culprits.

            This means a lot, because it shows that tplf is part of the reform and not against it. It will help stability and peaceful continuation of the reforms. Problems like the one we discussed above can be resolved when the dust settles.

          • Admassie

        please get out of your emotion and hate. You may hate Tigray people or Weyane but accusing only this people will not solve Ethiopian problem and leads Ethiopia to democracy. Yes I agree if someone did a crime against humanity and a country she?he should be punish for the crime the did.
        What I am asking is; the Ethiopian people and journalist should ask a question what about the others members of the previous ruling party? Are they free even from simple corruption? We are hearing a one sided drum. I do not mean those they are accused now are innocent but they are innocent until proven. Yesterday I heard in the HABESHA may be some of them will release. Journalist should be professional not emotional. They should dig deep to every previous government officials life. Weyane also did they kind of accusation but only to selected person (to those they want to attack them). Justice should show its strength by investigating those they are in power.
        You said ” We shall continue to advance this plan until everything becomes clear” I fully agree with you.

    Hi All. Complete shame that the TPLF and Getachew Assefa must bear now. One must remember that Getachew was 2-to-3 days before the foiled attack on PMAA, openly saying that Eritrea was planning an attack on PMAA. On top of that that Ethiopia’s Attorney General is saying that under other investigations, arrest warrants have been issued for 36 security agents accused of rights abuses and corruption, and for more than 30 officials from a military-run firm, where he said inquiries had uncovered mismanagement “For six years METEC made international procurement totaling $2 billion without any bidding processes”.

    • Mitiku Melesse

      Hei FishMilk.
      If Tigray liberation front declared independence in 1990 and has done all the atrocity against Ethiopians, Eritreans, Somalis and Sudanese the the shame could have been on tplf or tigrians for such brutality. But tplf had chosen to be Ethiopian til it decides when to DECLARE in dependency. Since tplf installed and has dictated its brainchild constitution since 1993 and more clearly after the war against Eritrea (PIA and its party constantly explained thoroughly the plan of Tplf after the war, suprisingly not before the war) the shame is on all of us. Such a teeny weeny god for nothing beggar group terrorizing and looting us with such a huge lose of human lives tells us only one thing. We are dumb and coward. And a good deal of us we became unknowingly part of the big woyanee scam. One authority summerized what tplf tugs has done against all Ethiopians in one sentence..” A worst enemy country against Ethiopia had not done such crime against our people”. Period.

    Hi All. Long at last, The U.N. Security Council will vote tomorrow to lift a nearly decade-old arms embargo and targeted sanctions on Eritrea.

    • Haile S.

      Selamat FishMilk (PoissonLait (ፕዋሶን ለ),

      Lifting of the sanction is an excellent news. The question is, is it once again going to be watered down by the regime as it did with some hopefull momentums in the past and particularly the recent peace process as applied to eritreans and the demarcation process recently fishtailed by IA in his interview?

    Hi Hayat Adem. Five months ago, in regards to the June 23rd foiled assassination attempt on PMAA, you said ‘Today’s bomb might undo every hope we cheered, every romance we heard, every air of peace and love we breathed in this week. I will really really be surprised if things don’t point to one usual suspect: PFDJ.’. Well, Ethiopia’s Attorney General, Berhanu Tsegaye, has now accused the former senior member of the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) for ordering the foiled assassination attempt which involved .Oromo ethnic groups being deliberately recruited to carry out the attack, to give the impression that the Prime Minister was killed by his own ethnic group members. When do you think they will be locking up Getachew Assefa?

  • Paulos

    Selam My Good People,

    Which one would’ve been easier and straightforward? To state that Isaias hails from Tigrai or to state that his grandfather was buried in Amhara region if the intention was to draw commonality. Or was it intended for political consumption to tell the people that he is closer to you than other parts of Ethiopia?

  • Mitiku Melesse

    Hei All.
    I heard on an interview made with one ex-eprdf member. He said ”When tplf came to Addis, it found all it needed on a silver plate thanks to Derg which nationalized all what Ethiopians have owned”.

    The first 15-20 years tplf use all its power be it ethnic based politics and policy, corruption to shut up the other killil leaders and politicians, use the military which is controlled by woyane generals and leaders, etc. But looting such a vast amount of property of 100 million people to some 5 million made an opportunity for some woyanes to take some to their own private consumption. Besides if some amhara or oromo leaders or politicians get rich just because they are handpicked by tplf, how come their equivalent leaders of tplf can be poor. If some woayens, can be rich through corruption why not the rest. If the rest are rich what about the generals! What can we do for the generals! METEC. Brilliant. The generals came so late. They were ashamed of inviting their own woyane sisters and brothers after they have seen how beautiful house and expensive cars and furniture they have. Forget Tigray, Ethiopia go to hell, I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need… What do we do when people oppose that we woyanes are getting rich and the rest… Use the anti teroor law, if that doesnt scare them then kill them… the rest is history..

    You cant make a nation Great by looting. Specially when you are so tinny winy minority.

    Dear all

    Most security people from the old TPLF selected group are going to prison and I hope this includes the former chief security boss who is in Tigray . I hope the Tigrians see this as a payment of the people who faulted the ordinary Tigrians. Getachew Asfha and his friends with their horrible teeth must go to prison.

      Thanks for the comment but doesn’t this show that in Ethiopia there is rule of law while in our country Eritrea, there is not?

        Dear Brhan
        Eritrea is under one man one party and if we need to change it , the door is wide open now than ever sir . The fact that all opposition who stationed in Tigray for the past 18 years run away instead of going in to Asmara and protest also shows you the price Ethiopians payed on every street . It is not cheap sir .

      So now in this case
      Tigrai has two options, 1, to follow the federal law and let them arrested. or 2, to starve to death.

      • Nitricc

        Hi Teddy; it will be a mistake trying to extract those people from Tigray. It will be a war. If I was PMAA; I thought the waiting game is working. If I have to advice PMAA; I will say wait and do what you doing, sooner or latter the people of Tigray will be detached from those criminals.

          So u r right there is no need to extract those people from tigrai by force, but if they start a war, i can tell u, they will be surprise by the respond, threre r millions of people extremely angry by those tplf thugs.
          Any ways my concern is tplf’s victims.

            Any ways, in order to argue about idea, first that idea has to be true and than u will move to argument about the idea.
            What aman h doing is collecting trashy news from all over social media and use them to attack tplf opposition groups or individuals.
            What am doing is , let him know the trashy news in social media r not true and they r on social media to cover tplf’s looting and “gebersod××” crimes.
            What happened to isem?

          • Berhe Y

            Hi Tedros,

            I read your message and my comment was also in relation what you said about him iSem as well.

            You don’t have to take my word for it, but I for a fact that, iSem has nothing to do with TPLF. He challenges the PFDJ and those who worship them but he has nothing to do with them. I would say it’s tge same for AH, Paulos and others. Just stick to what they write and your will be fine.

            As to the other stuff, please just drop it and you don’t have to repeat it. Hayat said she was wrong, end of story. Kab behaliEu degamiEu. Not who said it but one who repeats it.

            BTW, iSem is doing just fine. I saw him a couple of weeks ago. He is taking sabbatical and busy with work and life.

            I think there is no disagreement that isem is admirer of tplf, the most undemocratic organization and he is also criticize pfdj for undemocratic exercise, so giving the two parties relationship, what is that tell u about isem?
            But my problem about isem is not just tplf but unholy behavior.
            aman h, he is not just tplf but……
            Read his comment.

          • Berhe Y

            Hi Tedros,

            I don’t know how to explain it to you. TPLF the most undemocratic organization compared to whom? PFDJ, The DERG, HSI?

            There is a lot one can criticize TPLF but also there is a lot that can be admired. The Tigray people lost close to half million because of draught, and bad government pointy of the Derg, the people of Wollo suffered the same way under HS.

            Where is the people of Tigray now compared to where they were 27 years ago. Where are the people of Eritrea now compared to 27 years ago? What is there to compare?

            That’s iSem argument, stop calling weyane, weyane day and night, do something for your people that’s worthy of a praise.

            Compared to all of them, never heard of this much looting, “geberso××”, crimenal act on prisoners, killing in this age and time.
            Where is the people of tigrai now? 25% on safety net programs, u know what that means, it means if there is drought or no, this people can’t live with out handouts from ngo and gov.
            And u have to know the difference between looting money and development.
            And if u wanna know the truth, what happened to eritrean is the result of the work of tplf economy and poltical sabotage, directly or indirectly but that doesn’t mean eplf is good.

    Hi Girmay; you said “Finally Abie , Isayas, are trying to corner Tigray” No, they are trying to corner TPLF thugs NOT cornering the people of Tigray. This is where you guys go wrong. The people of Tigray has nothing to do with corrupted and greedy leaders of TPLF. The people of Tigray better off they dissociate from this TPLF thing. I have no doubt that TPLF is going down the question is, will they take the people of Tigray with them is the question.

    Hello Awate,
    And here are my thoughts

    1. The three will meet again and again, where? it is not important but in Amara Klil , it has symbolic importance and this will be detailed in # 2 . There are a lot of things to be done and they can not do them together. I believe all are comfortable to tackle issue by issue on common grounds, mainly security and economy. Unfortunately, the issue of democracy is not a common ground, specially to PIA. On security , there are a lot of issues and technicalities about the Red Sea where there is rapid change of geopolitics, with the Saudi trying to crush the last strong hold of the Houthi in Hudeyda. With Somalia still sympathizing with Qatar which was deceived by PIA. On Economy, it seems the three are going well and their goal is let economy doesn’t lead us to BADME II.

    2. The discourse in the long animosity between the two countries and Ethiopia had been depicted as animosity between the two countries and the Amhara. In Eritrea , the enemy, informally and formally was the Amhara: Amharu kemzi gerom type of conversation was not only traced in people’s daily conversation to wars, arrests, killings but also in songs, moto and speeches of EPLF and ELF. Up to this date the scar can be seen among many Eritreans , specially among those who first witness to the horrors during the struggle for the independence. I believe PMAA wanted to break this long standing taboo by inviting the two leaders.

    3. Amara Klil recently saw xenophobia and by inviting the two to this Klil PMAA is trying to fight it from the ground that is boiling.

    Thanks

    Hi all; I am a little surprised by PIA’s actions. I mean he is on and all out to get the TPLF thugs. He said Eritrea share borders with Amara and what he is saying is Weqayit is Amara. If you look at the current map Tigray borders with Sudan while the old map Gonder borders with Sudan. What I gathered from all this is PIA won’t rest till all TPLF thugs are out of business.

    Hei all.
    PIA has said ”there is no free media”.
    1) The Ethiopian medias are telling us Ethiopia has changed its war on Eritrea policy thus many peace enhancing activities with Eritrea and policy changes related to Eritrea relation including the surrounding neighboring countries. Ethiopia is gaining a lot from the peace deal.

    2) Others say what Ethiopia and Eritrea is doing is to squeeze Tigray people liberation front while dragging Somalia into their politics.

    3) And a third group is saying that the three leaders are working to isolate Djibouti.

    I want to hear what tplf is saying. Tplf which is blamed for arming alshabab at least said clearly how it is disappointing by the three leaders by blasting Mogadishu. 8 months ago it was only tplf which could decide what Ethiopia must do with or against Eritrea or Somalia. Now it is disappointing to share this power with the rest of Ethiopians. Not only it has to share but it has to be peaceful. Where is the beef for tplf if there is peace with Eritrea or Somalia? The double digit growth for Tigray is not based on this silly peace concept. The movers and shakers used to decide on Somaliland, put the president they wished in Moqadisho the way they could in Ethiopians’ Killils. They managed to put sanctions on Eritrea. And now this…….! What is going on here talking with Isaias, and Formaajo about peace? Who is really bossing? Is it Possssssssssssssssible for tplf to accept this reality!!?.

  • bardavidi

    Hello… That is literally a narrow one sided view of the situation …………Factual errors are in play. The TPLF presence in an overall Leadership of the EPRDF is alive and well and represented by many positions in the cabinet, Ambassadors, and even the Chief of staff of the Armed forces Seare Mekonnen himself…………..The EPRDF is composed of many groups in Alliance and does not represent a certain ethnicity or region as indicated in this Article…………The view is always better from the Mountain top……………Selah.
