On 11th EPRDF Congress- Dear Aiga, Can you ask DR Debretsion why he is becoming a useful tool to the idiots within EPRDF and the general public by allowing his name to be listed as a challenger when he and the whole EPRDF leadership knows TPLF nor he has the desire to compete for any EPRDF position at this time! I thought DR Debrestion learned something from the last EPRDF meeting? Why is he giving ammunition to TPLF nemesis to say in your face to TPLF supporters?. We have egos too! Weyeley!

On the Jidda Agreement between Eritrean and Ethiopia. Fetsum Abraham 10-02-18 - I heard someone in a radio saying 'There is no happiness in a life that impedes others from living their lives'.

13th TPLF Congress!:-09-30-18 - TPLF is set to conclude its 13th Congress tomorrow on Oct 1st, 2018. All indications are the congress was very successful. The organization has decided to increase its central committee (CC) to 55 members. The new Congress will have 55 members of which over 20 are new! According to an eyewitness account, the selection and nomination process of the new cc members were very engaging. Even a current politburo member was harshly criticized barely making it be included as a member. The Central Committee will elect its executive leaders tomorrow (10-01-18). Those familiar with the election process told us DR. Debretsion is still a very popular figure and will most likely retain the chairmanship even though he was kind of criticized for being lenient about the current political change in the country. The criticism was later recanted! Aigaforum 09-30-18
