Abay Woldu’s press release on the current Ethiopian situation from Tigregna to Amharic

Tigray region president Ato Abay Woldu on September 2, 2016 had a press conference regarding the current situation in Ethiopia. As a person who understand Tigrigna language, I found it is completely different from the Amhara and the Federal Government press release. The YouTube is about 55.29 minutes long. Only the time that is between 14 to 28 minute is translated. Just to make sure that the translation is ok, I will provide you with the link. Please take your time to verify this information.

  1. He will pay all the concequence to Amhara. General Gedu has told him, there will be time that he will swallow his spit full words.

  2. May I name some of the rich Generals who are besides you? You can add general as a preceding of their name, because it you who believe they are general form, they are leaders of genocide. Samor, masho, kinf, tena, and their business counter part, Tekelebirhan Ambaye (Ednamal), Golagol Tower, Rewina Mal, Sofia Mall, etc.. all these will belong to Ethiopian.

  3. Dear Who are the Tirians displaced people. No Tigraian are displaced from any regions of Amhara. Let me tell you, your most problem, you believe like God your selfish leaders who are busy in ethinics politics and rob the country. I do not know how many years they will live?. When the people of Gondar started to ask its right, the TPLF leaders ordered the Tigrian to leave the Amhara regions, particularly Gondar. When they are asked it is an order not our interest. The TPLF prepare an airplane and deport them to Mekele, the place which could not afford to accommodate and feed its people by itself. Then, they started to talk that Amhara is reviving back to suck the Tigrians, and initiate the people to be armed. The Tigrans, as they trust their leader as God, though they did nothing for them, they accept and started to shout as usual. Believe it or not, It is not the resources that is taken from Ethiopia will help you to live, it love that may binds us together. As your leaders, TPLF, you are always blaming Shabia. Shabia is your father, your saviour, that brought Woyane from the jungle to Addis. Sahbia is more closer to your and your TPLF leaders than the people of Gondar. See who are your leaders in the TPLF party. Either they are fully or half Ertirians. But the wise Tigrian people never suspect them. they never ask them about this issue. As long they are told that Amhara and Oromo is going to swallow you, the wise Tigrians always accept their order to die. Can you think back and check the so called generals, what they are doing in Addis? What will bring this to the people of Tigray. I know you are far more privileged in every aspect in the country. But, if you believe you are competent, you do not need all these extra treatment and privilege. In history we have never seen a competent Tigrians. This made you always wicked and evil to attack people. Whatsoever reason if the tigrians are displaced form the land that they looted and affirmatively given, as Ethiopian you would have to be concerned for those who are killed by the TPLF orders. They are also human beings. We Ethiopians all known that Tigrians are first. This is the burdenT that we do not tolerate any more. this time to overthrow the TPLF. As its name indicated that it has to go back to Tigray. TPLF has nothing to do with Ethiopia and for Ethiopians. If TPLF has a bit something to do with Ethiopia, they will never moved all the military base from Debrezite to Mekele, the Tele Data center to Mekele, all the gold Deposit to Mekele, and all the Dollars to Mekele. You know how much money by order the Tigrians collected from the CBE in Bhir Dar and told them to leave bahir Dar? you can refer this. These money might help them to satay a year, then you have never considered what would be next? As the current situation is going on, believer it or not, I know you are the only fighters and courageous people in the world, but we know the truth. you never fought in front since the time of the war of Adawa. Out of 100 soliders, you find 1 or 2 Tigrians, what is dying by now is not Tigrians. This will not continue untile the coming December. Things will be segregate soon and become crystal clear. The people of Ethiopia will know who is its enemy? At that moment, the war will not take more than a year. Then the Tigrians will never call themselves Tigre any more. We have seen the signals in AA. more 200,000Tigrians were changing their ethnic from Tigre to Amhara and Oromo, while their eleven is in their forehead. After two years we will have a T free country, and fair economy. What has been looted by TPLF and all the Tigrians will recover in a year as long we will work together for Ethiopia.

  4. Dear Sir,
    Who is Amora? He is the butcher of Woyane. He died because He accept the order of the TPLF as Gods message. If he would have asked why he died like that, there would have been so many ways. He did to liberate the already liberated Tigre at Adawa by the people of Ethiopia. When Ethiopian plan to fought against Itally at Adawa, the Tigrians were all banda and refused to supply even a food to the soldiers. Due to this reason, the Tigrians were under colony for the so long. Now all the Amora will be …… Soon. As usual do not post it. You never face reality and truth in your life. You are always a hero in the midst of the lousy people.

  5. As I have got an urgent information from the key people of Woyane, the TPLF are cracking down on the issue of Tigray. As far as I know, they were fighting about the corruption and bad governance they followed for the last 25 years. One of the group (Lead by Sibhat), they accept and the revolt has a solid reason to quest us in such a flood mass demonstration. Why we denied reality? We have to accept our corruption and corrupted policy if we would like to continue and build the Abay Tigray, until the coming 40 years. Due to the corrupted politics and leadership style we have accumulated the country’s wealth on one Ethic.
    In every aspect, wherever you go the country, the Tigrians are privileged and possessed the majority of the wealth. The issue of Wolqayt was started due to the unnecessary scrambling of the Wolqyt land by the selfish Tigrian poor governance of Abay Woldu. Since then, they the indigenous Wolqayt become land less and unproductive even become impoverished to the level that they do not pay their loan and mange their families. But the Tigray Government, has rather pushed to displace the Wolqayt, and replaced by the tgirian who are brought from Shire, Adawa, and other parts of Tigray by the name investor. This precedence is also repeated in Gabriella, Benshangual, Wolega where fertile lands are available for investors. If you observe all leading investors in these regions are the
    Tigrians who have got facilitation and policy reshuffling as well as an order to the development bank leaders to secure huge amount of loan. The loan amount for 500Hecator of land is in the range of 30,000,000.000ETB up to 45,000.000.ETB. But nearly all the debtor and nonperforming their loan. Since the policy well design and biased to the debtors, the bank do not have the guarantee to claim. Rather the pure collateral is the land of these regions. This started to disappoint the other ethnics in the country and the indigenous people in the respective regions.
    Moreover, if you see all the buildings in Addis and other part of the country, nearly 100% of the which are located in the main roads are belonging to the Tigrians, with an indirect investment by our generals, ministers, and key TPLF members. Leave along they looted the countries money, they are not even willing to pay tax. Of course, when Abay Woldu could not be able to enforce and collect tax from the Tigray regions since the last two years, we have realized that our tax system is becoming futile from its inception. That was why the Tigrians in Wolqayt refused to pay tax in that particular region and replied, we paid our tax in Mekele. Relieving the tax in Tigray and enforcing to the rest of the country aggressively, with intimidation is a futile exercise for the TPLF. We have arrested so many business men and women becuase they did not issue a receipt. But it has been more than two years since the whole region of Tigray has never paid a single cent for tax, rather they benefited more from the ERCA tax. As this group explained, we have to balance at least to a certain extent and to the level that we can deceive our society. But the way we are doing things are just deceiving ourselves and we follow behind the people.
    We could not be able to lead the people, rather, the people are a head of us. But the people are patient and waiting when the times come. Believe it or not, if we allow the people in Addis, they overthrow us overnight. All the mega projects of our MOTO are nearly corrupted their budget. We have arrested so many people due to corruption, like Melaku Fenat, Gebrewuhad, but having lost more than 80millions of Bir from the sugar project we kept quiet. We have to claim individuals who were responsible to these 10 projects. Tsehay would have the answer for these or has to return the money back to the project. At least these projects have to progress at a reasonable proportion with the amount we spent from the public. The failure of these projects are a double fold, the sugar cane is at a total loss. we cannot use it unless the plant is ready. we harvest and dipsos a dollar because our corruption and failure. What do you feel when the report was reported at the parliament?
    Could you imagine how the people of Ethiopia will have perceived from this report and our work? Can anyone tell me how much money is taken from the HIDASE dam project? The generals are always after the money. They can take any amount they want with a single Chequ. Do you have a full knowledge to the project is outsourced, it is to single individuals without and floating tender? Do not you think that their competitors are aware on it? It has been 25 years since were were playing with fire. Then, this is the time to confess and work hard on the unity of the Ethiopian people provided that not losing our power totally. Let us make clear ourselves, and fight the people of Tigray which we have made it bald and venerable for the last 25 years to the Ethiopian people.

    However, the other group have strongly opposed this idea. They claim themselves as crystal clear and neat and never involved in corruption. Due to the opportunity we had to work with investors, Chinese business men we have accumulated money as commission, or share, or thanks giving. As Tigrians, we are wise and invested this money and we are making more money. Of course we might have used our power or our position might have brought us to this opportunity, otherwise we never took any public money. As you know the people of Tigray is hard workers and willing to take risk. As an investor or business men, this would lead to loss or profit. But due to the golden opportunity the Ethiopian GTP has brought to the nation, our people have taken the leading advantage and benefited more.

    This a matter of intellect not only policy. The Tigrians are doing good in business, leadership and commitment. This might have made them visible amongst the Ethiopian people. What else crime we made to abuse the system, the public money, and others. Why we all take the burden always? Why we confess as criminal? Business by its nature may have some irregularities. We share the same as a business man. This may include common culture of Ethiopian working with blood relations, may use power, and others. With all these strong argument, as I can see from the meeting, they do not come in consensus at all.

    The discussion has continued as of today even. Today I did not join the meeting with the reason which I do not want mention at this juncture. The other reason is due to my frustration, that the tensions is becoming high and high. The crackdown is becoming more intense and furious, the individuals are joining the antagonistic group and identify their role bit by bit. This worsen my frustration.

    Furthermore; this discussion is leaning and leading to another crackdown. This crackdown is on the decision of the fate of Tigray and Tigrians. Until I will be back with more detail, the issue each group raised is that
    1. We have to fight and manage the rebels and maintain Ethiopia until we will fulfil your plan. We are losing a golden opportunity on the innocent people of Ethiopia. The donkeys will never be aware on our plan, if we would have been smart enough rather than focusing on our individual investment, that we will soon leave to them.
    2. No this is the time, the revolution is out of our control, all the soldiers other than the Tigrians, are sooner or later they will be against us. Since we have taken all the resources to our regions, the military as well as logistics, it will be more profitable to separate Tigray from the rest of Ethiopia and built our dream there. All the natural resources will be under our regions. We block more than three crude oil opening to our reservoir in the three different regions that we claim to belong to Tigray regions. It would be easy to fight for us to recapture Asseb than paying a cost to calm down the revolution. Let them to fight for power and build our nation and country. All our investment will be compensated by the amount of dollar and god deposit we took, and the crude oils become our future resources.
    For further, I will come with more by next week.
