Events in the country
are moving fast to keep abreast and chew one’s own cud. The resent audio
message and the time of its release suggests that people running the country
want the hoi polloi seat on the edge of precipices begging for their
lives to be saved. It is time to play brinkmanship and shine.
whoever is playing with fire will soon learn who it is playing with or against
to his/her detriment. And whoever is pressure-cooking a plot will be in
for a surprise.
Shemeles Abdisa, the chairperson of Oromo Prosperity Party, claimed that he
and his group gambled with a fortune but surprisingly to come out as sole
winners, they fired a single shot that killed multiple enemies and
friends at the same time.

dating and reckless gambling they managed to wrench the EPRDF from the Tigrian
domination and reshaped it as their mirror image - Prosperity Party
- that serves the Oromo causes in all aspects be it politics,
language, social institutional and culture, nothing they left unturned in
pursuit of the Oromo hegemony over the rest; hallelujah sigh
of relief breathed the audience!
group, nations and members in the Organization they forged (PP) only operate as
subservient to the Oromo causes and welfare.Pure and simple. Shemeles blazoned
in his speech: “Oromo people do not be confused go out, maffick and
rejoice. We are here to surreptitiously serve your cause do not get us
wrong!! We are with you, jump the bandwagon, and let us sail to the
releasing such a statement Mr. Shemeles was trying to kill with one hand those
he called subservient friends and save with the other hand those he realised
have turned enemies - the Oromos/Querros.
message was intimating to the Oromos that there will be many good news
unfolding if they were to remain steady fast loyal to PP and nothing to fear
off if only they wait patiently thing will unfold to their advantages.
Dictators unfailingly promised Nirvana during their reign of terror, Nero scorched
Rome that exuded homelessness, Julius Caesar extended food shortage that reached
the gates of Egypt, the breadbasket of the ancient world, Hitler, Mussolini,
Kaddafi, Saddam. Mengestu blessed the world with war and wanton to satisfy
their impulses for immediate gratifications for fame and now Shemeles!!
Shemelse is a second rate politician with little or no grey matter in his head.
He is killing the Oromos with one hand and leading those who are alive to
sepulcher with the other hand as spelunker down the gorges of Abay, Omo, Shebelle and
Awash for fun.
he is playing with fire, as he is excited with his plots, counterplots and
gambling niches to win the lot, though little does he know he is in for a
surprise from those he created as enemies from friends left and right.
people he is trying to win over as much as the Oromos he has alienated DO NOT
NEED to GAMBLE or SET a PLOT to Assert their democratic rights as people to
decide their own destiny of self rule including and up to
set of arrangements and not a conspiracy or a plot guarantees such a
destiny that can and should be incontrovertibly achieved. One does not need to
conspire or play a fiddle to demand what is one’s legitimate right. One does not
have to hide and disguise but walk the walk, straight and head high held.
formation of a single party (PP) with satellite bodies lumped together will not
atomically guarantee the rights of a self determination of a nation. A
Unitarian party cannot and will not be a substitute to a federal formation
that is based on a fare and egalitarian distribution of power among equals of
nations that extends to include even secession.
Even if it
were possible that the Oromos dictate and keep the PP intact after its own
image for some time, what guarantee is there that the Oromos will always remain
on top and in charge of the Organization (PP) indefinitely to carry out
their concealed missions that relays on coercion and not consent of satellite
parties that are attached to it. If as Mr. Shemeles claims that he and his Co
succeeded in toppling the TPLF and snatched away the EPRDF just to turn it to
PP; why would it not be possible for someone that operates from within PP, of
course as a satellite, topple Mr Shemelse and his cohorts from
PP to form yet another party or a metastasized of PP to
serve another group interest next time round?
advancement has so far been achieved regarding the use of own language and self
rule has a lot to do with the EPRDF and not the PP endeavors. if anything the
PP has spend the last two years in shuttle diplomacy with an arch enemy of the
Ethiopian people- Isayas Afeworki (let us make it clear he wanted to wreck
havoc so he would dictate and exploit the region to his own end. The only group
who prevented him from achieving his goal in the past were the TPLF, hence the
revenge and any nationality who thinks Isayas would do any better with them is
living in shangtelia) and organizing covert and overt killing of opponents and
high ranking people seen as a threat and obstacles to implement its Unitarian
dictatorship the country had been under for the last 100 years prior the EPRDF
came to power. What Shemeles failed to see is that the nations and
nationalities, including the Oromos, fought tooth and nails to remove such a
rule, the Prosperity Party is now trying to reinstate but in vain. The Oromos
fought not to impose their own dictatorship and helot owning state
superstructure but federalist where nations and nationalities coexist as
is offering, hoping the Oromos will take his offer, foolish as he is, for them
to go in to the past and enjoy the privileges of the feudalists then using the
Amharas and now for Shemeles the Oromos, as cannon fodders and sources of man
power to defend their make believe privileges they share with the
feudalists under the pretext of language- will pick the fight with the rest of
Ethiopians. In so doing, Shemeles and his Co are neither here nor there, they
are self centrists, but create fear and suspicion among nations to promote
their own interests to stay in power come hell or high water. The game of the
day? Killings here, killings there, mayhem everywhere a fertile ground for
dictators to reign unperturbed.
is an ingenious person to say the least, that with one hand he is engaged in
the killing the Oromos and with another hand he leaks out
a message telling them that he is working to save them Oromos from others. This
is a desperate move by a desperate person to gain their loyalty and
support from people who have lost confidence and trust.
do not need plots, conspiracies and the spill of innocent blood of their own
and others to demand and safeguard their God given rights - to live in peace,
free as they would like to be. Only a federal system that guarantees self
determination including and up to secession which the Oromos have every right
to claim and fight for is a standard bearer, no one could deny them. No sauce,
no kettle, no salt or drama is required!!
