Amhara and Tigrai people Conference to be held in Gondar We can not believe how shortsighted the leaders of ANDM and TPLF were to allow the escalation of last year's mayhem in Amhara region! For one thing they allowed anti peace elements to own the agenda and worst they allowed extremists to put wedge between the two people who are the two faces of the same coin. The result is what we see today - Ethiopia is being ruined down by hooligans in Oromia! Today Jawar and company are more informed about events unfolding within EPRDF than loyal supporters! Jawar is being fed daily update while supporters are fighting gag-order to inform the public. All of this
