I was sad to learn the meaning behind "ኢትዮጵያ አገሬ ሞኝ ነሽ ተላላ የሞተልሽ ቐርቶ የገደለሽ በላ."
Atse Yohannes died defending the country from foreign aggressors but never got the respect he deserves like Atse Minilik.
Ras Alula the renowned African General was known more internationally than within Ethiopia thanks to biased and backward Ethiopian historians and government officials who worked hard to burry his history.
The history of Ethiopia is a history of Tigreans and Tigrai. The land is still an open-air museum yet it is less visited and admired for fear of it becoming a powerful state. Even the magnificent Lalibela churches were less visited due to its proximity to Tigrai by the order of the old regime.
TPLF and Tigreans fought a bitter struggle to liberate Ethiopians from the jaws of the Derge. They defeated Derge and build Ethiopia's economy and made Ethiopia a hopeful country for all Ethiopians. However, a psychopath populist leader is tarnishing its achievement while he is busy inaugurating infrastructure projects planned and built by the TPLF lead federal government.
TPLF/Meles instilled the Yichalal spirit and started Renaissance Dam. Against all odds, he and his government managed to complete three-fourth of the dam in short 5 years. As if Abiy never heard the saying "ኢትዮጵያ አገሬ ሞኝ ነሽ ተላላ የሞተልሽ ቐርቶ የገደለሽ በላ", today, he has no shame in not mentioning Meles's name while heralding the news about the filling of the Dam. He wants to take credit for himself! The worst part the lady president who worked with Meles could not utter a word about Eng Semgengew and PM Meles, the two deceased most respected architects of the Dam!
People, how can anyone remain loyal to this country and tyrant? Are Ethiopia's days numbered?
