Ethiopia Crossing the Cross Road- Speak Up Now!

I have been questioning where the learned men and women of the two largest nations in Ethiopia have gone for a while since Ethiopia's current quagmire is mainly the work of the (Oro-Mara) group. Why are they allowing the current government to destroy Ethiopia?
Can't the Oromo people bring forth a better candidate to lead the country? And why can't the Amhara people see the persecution of the Kimant people is wrong?
(I) asked a long-time friend the same question and what he told me was scary and eye-opening. He told me people are in denial and group apathy has taken over because of TPLF/EPRDF misrule! He told me people do not care anymore.
I did not want to believe what I heard from my friend then. I am glad I did not since the Oromo learned men and women are starting to talk - Listen to Tsegaye Ararssa (P.h.D). He is challenging PM Abiy to repeat what he said in Oromiffa the other day in Amharic! Tsegaye thinks Abiy is not telling all Ethiopians the same story. Just watch and listen!

The lady favorite question is "Tedemerhal?" As if she knows what "Medemer" is! Well, the saying "Ye Temare Yigedelgn" Let the learned one kill me, is what comes when we heard Gemechu (Ph.D.) answer! - Interesting discussion!

Deepening and Widening Crisis in Ethiopia - The Zero-Sum Game Politics and Losing Strategy of the Abiy Government
Makonnen Tesfaye; October 6, 2019 - To paraphrase the late PM of Great Britain, Harrold Wilson, a month is indeed a long-time in Ethiopian politics, for a lot of change has happened in a short time, the resultant of which is the deepening of the generalised crisis and the widening of the principal and fundamental political divide between the democratic federalist and the One-Nation-Culture hegemonist camps in the country.

Bitter and indelible lessons from the past to learn.
Yared Huluf 10-04-19 - One can forgive but not forget, and forgive Tigray shall the wicked acts inflicted upon when the people had done nothing untoward to deserve the payloads. Menelik and his successors were no ordinarily villains; they were rogues and Svengalis in a skid row one happens to find. It is one thing to suffer from misgovernance; it is also understandable when rulers...

The greatest confusion and deception of all time- duty-free or free trade policy cannot solve the complicated problems of African countries.
Fekadu Bekele (Ph D) 10-02- 2019 - Over the past 50 years, many sub-Saharan African countries have implemented economic policies that came from the West or were mandated by the so-called international community under the auspices of the IMF and the World Bank.

The crown is thought to be one of just 20 in existence. and was likely gifted to a church by the powerful warlord Welde Sellase hundreds of years ago.

What is wrong with the Amhara Government?
Of all the nations and nationalities in Ethiopia, the people that have been nearly assimilated or lost their unique identity are the people of Kimant and Agew. These people are considered Amhara by many. From all that is known the Kimant people are simply asking for a Zone/administrative region within the Amhara region. How hard can this be to implement? They are not asking to have their own Kilil/Region outside of the Amhara Region! They are simply asking for a local self administrative region for heaven's sake! It is mindboggling to see the problem persisting! How does ADP plan to convince Ethiopians it has good intentions for Ethiopians when it starts advocating for a Unity/Ahadawi Party? It is public knowledge Abiy and ADP are planning to form a Unitary party? Can you imagine what they will do to people that aspire similar demands as the Kimant people if they succeed to win as an Ahadawi Party? What guarantee is there to hope they will protect Ethiopians if they become a majority party? It is sad to see the US Embassy in Addis saying nothing while people are being killed and displaced. I thought they were a friend! The current day time mass killing and uprooting happening in the Kimant region of North-West Amhara is criminal.Zeru Hagos Sep 30, 2019
