ጉዳዩ፦ አዲስ አበባና የሰብአዊ መብት ታጋዩ የጋዜጠኛ እስክንድር ነጋ ጉዳይ

በአሜሪካ ከምንገኝ ተቆርቋሪ ትውልደ ኢትዮጵያዊያን

ውድ ጠ/ሚንስትር ዶር ዐብይ፤

መጀመሪያ አገራችንን ኢትዮጵያንና መላውን 110 ሚሊየን አስደናቂ ስብጥር ሕዝቧን በቅንነት፤ ሚዛናዊ በሆነ መንገድ ለዘላቂ ሰላምና እርጋታ፤ ለፍቅር፤ ለፍትህ፤ ለአብሮነት፤ ለእውነተኛ የዜጎች እኩልነት፤ ለሕግ የበላይነት፤ ለፍትሃዊ፤ ዘላቂ እድገት እና በመድብለ ፓርቲዎች ውድድር፤ ነጻና ፍትሃዊ ምርጫ ተካሂዶ፤ በሕዝብ ተሳታፊነትና ወሳኝነት ሊመሰረት ለሚገባው የዲሞክራሲ አገዛዝ የጀመሩት የአንድ ዓመት የለውጥ ጉዞ ስኬታማ እንዲሆን ያለንን ምኞት እንገልጻለን።

ሁላችንም የምንኮራባት ታሪካዊዋ ኢትዮጵያ ከርስ በርስ ግጭትና ጥላቻ፤ ከድህነት፤ ከረሃብ፤ ከስደት፤ ከሰው ሰራሽ ፍልሰትና ከኋላ ቀርነት ኡደት (Cycle) ወጥታ በአፍሪካ ደረጃ ብቻ ሳይሆን በዓለም ደረጃ ቦታዋን እንድትይዝ የጀመሩት ሰላማዊ ለውጥ ሁሉንም  ኢትዮያዊያን እንደሚያሳትፍ እንገምታለን፤ ተስፋ እናደርጋለን። በኛ ግምገማ፤ የኢትዮጵያ ብሄራዊ አንድነት፤ ነጻነትና ሉዐላዊነት እንዲሁም ዲሞክራሳዊ አገዛዝ ሊመሰረት የሚችለው የእያንዳንዱ ዜጋ መብት በሕገ-መንግሥቱ ሲከበር ነው። ይህም ማለት የማንኛውም ኢትዮጵያዊ፤ በየትኛውም ገጠር ሆነ ከተማ፤ የመኖር፤ ቤት፤ ንብረትና ቤተሰብ የመመስረት፤ እንደ ልብ የመንቀሳቀስ፤ የመምረጥና የመመረጥ መብቱ ወይንም መብቷ ሲጠበቅ ነው። እርሰዎ ለእነዚህ መብቶች መከበርና ለኢትዮያና ለኢትዮጵያዊነት እሴቶች እንደቆሙ እናምናለን።

ይህ እምነታችን እንዳለ ሆኖ፤ በርስዎ መንግሥት ብቻ ከሶስት ሚሊየን በላይ የሚገመተው የአገር ውስጥ እትዮጵያዊ የፈለሰ ሕዝብ ገና ወደ ቀዩ እንዲመለስና ተመልሶ እንዲቋቋም ከመደረጉ በፊት ሌሎች በብዙ ሽህ የሚገመቱ ወገኖቻችን ለተመሳሳይ አደጋ መጋለጣቸው እጅግ በጣም እንዳሳሰበን ልንገልጽልዎት እንፈልጋለን። ይህ ሕዝብን ከሕዝብ ጋር የሚያናክስና አገርን የሚያፈርስ ሁኔታ ከአሁኑ ጀምሮ በአስቸኳይ እንዲቆም ያልተቆጠበና የተቀነባበረ የፌደራል መንግሥት ጥረት ይጠይቃል።

በከተማ ሆነ በገጠር ብሄር ተኮር የሆነ ፍልሰት፤ ግድያ፤ ማሰርና ማስፈራራት ለሁሉም ኢትዮጵያዊያን አደገኛ ሂደት ነው። “ይህችን ታላቅ አገር ተቀራርቦ ከመስራት ውጭ ሌላ አማራጭ” የለም እና “ኢትዮጵያ አትበተንም፤ አንተ እስከ ሃሳብህ ድረስ ትበተናለህ እንጅ” ብለው ያሰመሩባቸውን መርሆዎች እኛም እንጋራለን።

በዚህ ዙሪያ እኛን እጅግ ካሳሰቡን አስኳል ጉዳዮች መካከል፤ ባለፉት ሃያ ስምንት ዓመታት የራሳቸውን ህይወት፤ ቤተሰብና ኑሮ ወደ ጎን ትተው ለሁሉም ኢትዮጵያዊያን ሰብአዊ መብቶች፤ ነጻነትና ክብር ከታገሉትና በእስር ቤት ከተሰቃዩት ታላቅ ኢትዮጵያዊያን መካከል ዓለም ያደነቀውና ያከበረው ጋዜጠኛና የሰብአዊ መብት ታጋዩ አቶ እስክንድር ነጋ አንዱ መሆኑ እየታወቀ ዛሬ በሱ ህይወት ላይ የሚካሄደው ዛቻና ማስፈራራት እርሰዎና መንግሥተዎ ከቆማችሁለት መንፈስ ጋር ይጋጫል። ልዩነትም ቢኖር ሰብአዊ መብት መከበር አለበት የሚለው እርሰዎ በተደጋጋሚ ያስተጋቡት እሴት ይህን ኢትዮጵያዊም ይመለከተዋል።

ጋዜጠኛ እስክንድር ነጋ ከ1993 ጀምሮ ለኢትዮጵያዊያን ነጻነት፤ መብትና ክብር ሲታገል የቆየ ታላቅና ደፋር ኢትዮጵያዊ ነው። ጋዜጠኛውና የሰብአዊ መብቶች ጠበቃ እስክንድር ነጋ፤ የራሱንና የቤተሰቡን የግል ጥቅም ወደ ጎን ትቶ፤ ህይወቱን ለአደጋ አጋልጦ ዘውግና ኃይማኖት ሳይለይ እስካሁን ለቆመለት የተቀደሰ ዓላማ የሚታገል ኢትዮጵያዊ ነው።

ክቡር ጠ/ሚንስትሩ እንደሚያውቁት፤ ጋዤጠኛ እስክንድር ነጋ፤ በ July 13, 2012፣ ህወሓት በበላይነት ይመራው በነበረው ጨካኝና አፋኝ የኢህአዴግ መንግሥት በፈጠራ ወሬ “ሽብርተኛ ነህ” ተብሎ ተከስሶ ለ 18 ዓመታት እንዲታሰር ተፈረደበት። ለ 7 ዓመታት በቃሊቲ እስር ቤት ሲሰቃይ ከቆየ በኋላ በ February 2018 ተፈታ። አንድ ወር ሳይሞላ፤ በ March 2018, እንደ ገና ታሰረ። የታሰረበት ዋና ምክንያት ብዙ ሚሊየን የኢትዮጵያ ሕዝብ መለያ አድርጎ የተቀበለውን “አረንጓዴ፤ ብጫና ቀይ የሆነውን ሰንደ ዓላማ ” በስብሰባው አዳራሽ ስለተጠቀመ ነው።

የሰብአዊ መብት አክቲቪስትና የመናገር ነጻነት “ጀግና” ተብሎ የተጠራው እስክንድር ነጋ ዓለም ያከበረው ኢትዮጵያዊ ነው። በ May 1, 2012, እስክንድር ነጋ በዓለም ደረጃ የታወቀውን የ Pen/Barbara Goldsmith Freedom ሜዳል ተሸልሟል። እንደገና በ May 18, 2017 የ International Press Institute (IPI)’s 69th World Freedom Hero Award ተሸልሟል። Amnesty International, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), Freedom House, Human Rights Watch እና ሌሎች የታወቁ ድርጅቶችና ግለሰቦች ይህ ኢትዮጵያዊ ለኢትዮጵያ ሕዝብ ብቻ ሳይሆን ለመላው ዓለም ሕዝብ ሰብአዊ መብት ተሟጋች መሆኑን መስክረውለታል። ጋዜጠኛ እስክንድር ነጋ ባለፉት ሃያ ስድስት አመታት የከፈለውን ዋጋና ያበረከተውን አስተዋጾ በዚህ አጭር ደብዳቤ ለማቅረብ አይቻልም።

በኛ እምነት፤ በቅርቡ በአዲስ አበባ የተከሰተው አለመግባባት ለሁላችንም አስደንጋጭ የሆነው የባለቤትነት ጥያቄ የሁሉም ኢትዮጵያዊያን ጉዳይ ነው። የአንድ ዘውግ ወይንም የአንድ ክልል ጉዳይ አይደለም። እንዲያውም የአዲስ አበባ ጉዳይ የመላው ኢትዮጵያ ሕዝብ ብቻ ሳይሆን፤ የመላው የጥቁር አፍሪካ አገሮች ጉዳይ ነው።

የአዲስ አበባ ከተማ ነዋሪ የሆነው ጋዜጠኛ እስክንድር ነጋ ከሚመለከታቸው የአዲስ አበባ ነዋሪዎች ጋር ሆኖ ያደረገው ሰላማዊና ጨዋነት የተሞላበት ውይይትና አቤቱታ ያስመስግናል እንጅ ግለሰቡን፤ ቤተሰቡን፤ በመላው ኢትዮጵያና በዓለም ዙሪያ የሚገኙ በብዙ ሚሊየን የሚቆተሩ ወዳጆቹን፤ አድናቂዎቹንና ደጋፊዎቹን የሚያስወቅስና የሚያሳሳብ ጉዳይ አይደለም። የቆመለት ጉዳይ የግል ዝና ወይንም ጥቅም ጉዳይ አይደለም፤ የሁላችንም ጉዳይ መሆኑን ልናስምርበት እንፈልጋለን።

ሕገ መንግሥቱ እንደሚደነግገውና  የአዲስ አበባ የአሥተዳደር ህግና ደንብ እንደወሰነው፤ ልምድ በሆነው የአስተዳደር መመሪያ መሰረት ነዋሪው ከ 5 ሚሊየን በላይ የሚገመተው የአዲስ አበባ ሕዝብ ራሱን የማስተዳደር፤ ፖሊሲዎችንና መመሪያዎችን የማሻሻል መብት እንዳለው እኛም እናምናለን።

የአዲስ አበባ ሕዝብ መመራትና መስተዳደር ያለበት ነዋሪው ሕዝብ በመረጣቸው ሃላፊዎች መሆን አለበት። ጋዤጠኛ እስክንድር ያደረገው ከዚህ የተለየ አይደለም። ደጋግሞ የተናገረው የነዋሪዎቹ  ሰብአዊና ዲሞክራሳዊ መብት ይጠበቅ ነው።

ስለዚህ፤ ክቡር ጠ/ሚንስትር ዶር ዐብይ አህመድን በትህትና የምንጠይቀው በእስክንድር ነጋ ላይ የሚካሄደው ማስፈራራትና አላስፈላጊ ዛቻና በአስቸኳይ እንዲቆምና በዚህ የታወቀና ጨዋ ኢትዮጵያዊ ላይ አደጋ እንዳይደርስበት ትኩረት እንዲሰጡልን ድምጻችን ለማሰማት ነው።

  1. The writers,

    You are praising the hatemonger Eskinder Nega who has been trying to destabilize Ethiopia by his malicious tactics if he can. He is one of the worst racists in that country. He doesn’t want to seen any Oromo as a head of some  Ethiopian institutions. Therefore, Eskinder Nega has beemdesigned a plan of instigating violences, so that the formation of a transitional government maybe realized. Thereby his main objective is helping the ultra nationalists of the Amahara, so that they can overtake political powers during the transitional period and can change the Ethiopian constitution and make everything retrogressive.

    Cheap propoganda will bring nothing. No power on earth will stop the Oromo people from fulfilling its aspirations as a freedom loving nation to regain its human dignity and rights. It is up to you to respect this great nation for the sake of your own benefits. Let me make it clear: Your malicious politics will never work in the new Ethiopia. The scramble for Oromia like the Menilik’s era is no more possible. The  persistent stubbornness and greediness of the ultra nationalists like you will help even more as a fuel in strengthening and speeding up the de-Amaharaization of the whole Ethiopian politics in order to substitute it with the politics of a true multinationalism.

    All the ultra nationalists of the Amahara including yourself have the same stand and positions concerning the human rights of the Oromo. You want to be masters on the Oromo and other Ethiopians forever. You are still dreaming the scramble for Oromia like the era of Menelik. You are most of the hardliners of the Amahara who have been fighting to bring back the domination of the Amahara system on the whole of Ethiopians. You don’t want to see the Oromo on the frontlines of the Ethiopian politics. You used to accuse the OLF by claiming that it struggles for the independent of Oromia. But none of the Oromo political organizations has working for the independent of Oromia. They have been struggling only for the democratic rights of the Oromo people. But still you don’t want to understand and respect that basic human rights.

    If you stand for equality were where you in the last 28 years as the Oromo were aggressively evicted from Finfinne and its surrounding. You have wrote nothing on the eviction of the Oromo until today. Even you may be comfortable with it. Since 1991 more than 3 million Oromos were pushed out of  Finfinne and its surrounding in 4 directions. They were also robbed off their land and were made strangers in the same city. But why you don’t question the eviction of the Oromo from Finfinne and its surrounding as a demographic engineering angaist the Oromo? This democratic engineering against the Oromo people is actually not new. It is a very usual practice for the last 140 years.

  2. @Gamadaa,
    I know you’re one of woyane’s disciples and you do what your teachers told you to do i.e.spreading hate to incite violence and genocide. We’ll work hard to shade the light on your dark past.You and you’re freinds are criminals. When the time comes, we know how to deal with you. How dare you open your foul mouth on this great man? I wanted to let you know that Eskinder Nega is a hero who fought with woyane face to face risking his life when you’re hiding in a foreign country. You’re Yedil atbiya Arbegna! Shame on you for insulting a person who struggled for freedom and spent 7 years of his life in prison! You and your friends Jawar and bekele aren’t the savior of the Oromo people. The Oromo people are wise and know how to live with their Ethiopian brothers and sisters with love and respect. You are trouble makers who are looking for power and prestige to steal, to torture and kill innocent people just like your bosses did. That’s what you’re aspiring for. I want to tell you that the truth will prevail. It is just for a little while. You and your friends will be history, but Ethiopia will endure this hateful campaign and will overcome all obstacles.
    Long live Ethiopia!!

    ከግለሰብ ያላለፈ ፖለቲካ አፍራሽ ነው።
    ጃዋር፣ እስክንድር፣ ኢሳት የመነጋገሪያ ነጥብ መሆን የለባቸውም።

  6. ለ ዶክተር እቢይ የላካችሁትን ደብዳቤ እየሁት፤፤ ዕስክንድር በረጅሙ የትግል ዘመኑ ትልቅ ቦታ የደረሰና ከባድ ውለታ የዋለልን ለመሆኑ ማንም የሚያውቀው ሃቅነው፤፤ ያ ትላንት ነው፤፤ ዛሬን ላይ ቆመን ስናስተውል ግን ህግን ጥሶ ተፃራሪ መንግስት ለ መፍጠር መከጀልና ማቀድ በጭራሽ እይቻለውም፤፤ ይህን መዋጥ የግድ ይላል እየመረረም ቢሆን፤፤ የሚገርመኝ የሱ ህገወጥነት ሳይሆን የናንተው ምልጃ ነው፤፤ የ 100 ሚሊዮን ህዝብ መከራና እበሳ መሸከሙ ሳያንሳቸው ለእስክንድርም ህይወት ዋስትና እንዲሰጣችሁም ጠይቃችሁዋል፡፡ This is so lamentable and utterly irresponsible to say the least. Abiy is not there to arbiter the life of every zealot in the streets of Addis not to mention the hooligan infested rural Ethiopia. Get real folks. We are going through one of the most trying times in Ethiopia; perhaps since the beginning of times. TPLF has systematically destroyed Ethiopia over the last 30 years. At least, since that infamous meeting between the Americans and Meles’s entourage in late 80’s An Ethiopian who watched the very recent YouTube video from years ago on Abiy during his tenure at INSA could clearly see how humble and truly devout Ethiopian he really is. What have the 42 of you done to alleviate the suffering of our people? Have you recently contributed towards the TRUST fund or Tamagn’s global Alliance? Abiy is doing all he can for Ethiopia against all odds. He is fighting left and right; centre and west against extremist elements and still function as a brilliant army commander. Look, it is not easy. We barely gained some sort of normalcy and miracle is expected from this guy? I am ashamed to read such ridiculous petion of some sort from the Diaspora. This እዲሰእበቤ slogan is just that. It is groundless and has no merit. I come from rural Oromia just like Takele. If Takele lived in Addis for over 20 years, as he claims he did , who are you to question his residency status especially living wherever you are as Diaspora ? Your insinuation says it all although you didn’t spell it out I am sure you didn’t send such flowery petion to Meles when Arkebe was roaming the crevices of Sheger with TOTAL ownership interest. If you can’t stand Takele for whatever reasons, get organized and rid him off during the upcoming election. Until then, respect the rules and regulations of the city administration.

    I admire Abiy’s unwavering stance and determination in doing good and what is right for Ethiopia; sealing his ears off the noises around him. I also admire people like Tamagn Beyene who really is one farsighted Ethiopian. It is very easy to blame afar. When you are sitting on the very tip of soon to be erupting volcano, God forbid, it is entirely a different matter. That is where Abiy’s “throne” is located at – on the plateau of that volcano. I am bewildered as to why and how the elites can’t see that. It is barely one year and this guy has restlessly been trying to neutralize the dynamites that have showered the Ethiopian landscape over the last 27 years. If you can’t help in that explosive search & rescue mission, please refrain from putting unworthy burden by such uneducated and utterly irresponsible demands. Can’t you see what digital TPLF diehard combatants are doing here and there? Don’t you observe the very many digital Amhara and Oromo fake activists bent on thwarting what this Abiy is desperately trying to put together? Are you blind ? Don’t you see among our own oromo intellectuals, even within the ODP, there are still disgruntled bunch who are dreaming for yesteryears’ shameless amassing of wealth at the expense of the forgotten millions? Don’t you think Abiy alone can’t do this without the support of all of us? What else can he do for us? He was about to be actually sacrificed in public just few months ago. If you can’t support him for whatever reasons of yours, perhaps he is not a fully fledged Amhara, do not try to put unnecessary pressure by such demand. I expect such misleading statements and demands from digital weyane; not from the likes of Prof Getachew. Enough is enough. Sorry, I couldn’t resist and count the Fidel fonts to say what needs saying. I had to quickly put this out before it chokes me up.

  7. ይሄን ገመዳ የሚሉትን ዕብድ ሰው ይዞ ሆስፒታል ወይ ጠበል የሚወሰድ አንድ ሁነኛ ዘመዱ ይጥፋ? በጣም ይገርማል! ሥራም ያለው አይመስለኝም። የወጥ እንጨት ሆነኮ። ትችቱ ሁሉ አሉታዊ ነው። እንዲያውም ይሄ ሰው አቦይ ስብሃት ወይም አባይ ፀሓዬ ሣይሆን አይቀርም።ምንም ተጻፈ ምን እንደርጎ ዝምብ ጥልቅ ነው። I appreciate his consistency though he is lunatic due to perhaps his insatiate belly. Poor Gamadaa. እንግሊዝኛው ደግሞ “ምርጥ” ናት።
    Fekadu ባለው ላይ ቅዋሜ አለኝ። በመሠረቱ ከስም ተነስተን ያ ጎሣ ይህ ጎሣ ማለት አንችልም። ግን ከተደረደሩት ስሞች ውስጥ ቢያንስ ያባታቸ ስም የኦሮሞ የሆነ አሉ። ይበልጥ ቢጣራ ደግሞ የአማራ ስም ከሚመስሉት ውስጥ ኦሮሞዎችና ሌሎች አይጠፉም።

  8. ለ ዶክተር እቢይ የላካችሁትን ደብዳቤ እየሁት፤፤ ዕስክንድር በረጅሙ የትግል ዘመኑ ትልቅ ቦታ የደረሰና ከባድ ውለታ የዋለልን ለመሆኑ ማንም የሚያውቀው ሃቅነው፤፤ ያ ትላንት ነው፤፤ ዛሬን ላይ ቆመን ስናስተውል ግን ህግን ጥሶ ተፃራሪ መንግስት ለ መፍጠር መከጀልና ማቀድ በጭራሽ እይቻለውም፤፤ ይህን መዋጥ የግድ ይላል እየመረረም ቢሆን፤፤ የሚገርመኝ የሱ ህገወጥነት ሳይሆን የናንተው ምልጃ ነው፤፤ የ 100 ሚሊዮን ህዝብ መከራና እበሳ መሸከሙ ሳያንሳቸው ለእስክንድርም ህይወት ዋስትና እንዲሰጣችሁም ጠይቃችሁዋል፡፡ This is so lamentable and utterly irresponsible to say the least. Abiy is not there to arbiter the life of every zealot in the streets of Addis not to mention the hooligan infested rural Ethiopia. Get real folks. We are going through one of the most trying times in Ethiopia; perhaps since the beginning of times. TPLF has systematically destroyed Ethiopia over the last 30 years. At least, since that infamous meeting between the Americans and Meles’s entourage in late 80’s An Ethiopian who watched the very recent YouTube video from years ago on Abiy during his tenure at INSA could clearly see how humble and truly devout Ethiopian he really is. What have the 42 of you done to alleviate the suffering of our people? Have you recently contributed towards the TRUST fund or Tamagn’s global Alliance? Abiy is doing all he can for Ethiopia against all odds. He is fighting left and right; centre and west against extremist elements and still function as a brilliant army commander. Look, it is not easy. We barely gained some sort of normalcy and miracle is expected from this guy? I am ashamed to read such ridiculous petion of some sort from the Diaspora. This እዲሰእበቤ slogan is just that. It is groundless and has no merit. I come from rural Oromia just like Takele. If Takele lived in Addis for over 20 years, as he claims he did , who are you to question his residency status especially living wherever you are as Diaspora ? Your insinuation says it all although you didn’t spell it out I am sure you didn’t send such flowery petion to Meles when Arkebe was roaming the crevices of Sheger with TOTAL ownership interest. If you can’t stand Takele for whatever reasons, get organized and rid him off during the upcoming election. Until then, respect the rules and regulations of the city administration.

    I admire Abiy’s unwavering stance and determination in doing good and what is right for Ethiopia; sealing his ears off the noises around him. I also admire people like Tamagn Beyene who really is one farsighted Ethiopian. It is very easy to blame afar. When you are sitting on the very tip of soon to be erupting volcano, God forbid, it is entirely a different matter. That is where Abiy’s “throne” is located at – on the plateau of that volcano. I am bewildered as to why and how the elites can’t see that. It is barely one year and this guy has restlessly been trying to neutralize the dynamites that have showered the Ethiopian landscape over the last 27 years.

I expect such misleading statements and demands from digital weyane; not from the likes of Prof Getachew. Enough is enough.

    Finally and most importantly, it IS VERY EASY FOR ARMCHAIR CRITICS TO CLAIM SHEGER IS FOR ALL ETHIOPIANS; IT IS A DELICATE BALANCE FOR A PM WHOSE MAIN POLITICAL BASE IS THE ODP TO OFFICIALLY STATE THIS FACT IN A LANGUAGE SO PALATABLE AND CRISP TO THE NATION. WHY DONT YOU SIMPLY GIVE HIM A BREATHING SPACE TO REFLECT AND COME UP WITH A STRATEGY? HOW COULD YOU HAVE HANDLED IT DIFFERENTLY IF YOU WERE IN HIS SHOES? NONE OF YOU MEASURE UP TO HIM. Why is it so hard for all to see the trap this visionary leader is in? Sorry, I couldn’t resist and count the Fidel fonts to say what needs saying. I had to quickly put this out before it chokes me up.

  9. አዲስ አበባ ያራዳ ልጆች ናት። ፋራ አይመቻትም አትመኛት አታገኛትም፡ ትንሹን ትሸውድሃለች። ፋራን ፋራ ካላሉት ሼም የለውም አራዳ ነኝ ይላል።

  10. Your writing reflects what is going on in your mind. You are desperately searching for compensation for your political bankruptcy. Rational thinking and democratic handling spring from a culture in which one grew up and stamped. But you have no such precious values. You are from a society which has no moral values. You are just from a very selfish society which behaves like a parasite. Therefore, with your writing you have reflected exactly your culture and mind setups.

    By belittling the great Oromo nation and campaigning against the beloved Oromo leaders like Lemma Megerssaa, Jawar Mohammed and Takle Uma your mentors like the racist Eskinder Nega and his associates have been working to instigate violence in Finfinne and its surrounding. Such backward acts will not be tolerated. He and his associates will face soon justice. There is no a free field on which he runs like a mad dog. If he doesn’t want to see the presence of the Oromo people in Finfinne, he can move back to his birth province, Gojam. His acts and behaviors will have nothing impact on the aspirations of the great Oromo nation, but he is a shame for his own people, the Amahara.

    The malicious politics of the hatemongers will not work in the new Ethiopia any more. The scramble for Oromia like the Menilik’s era is no more possible. But Eskinder and his associates can keep on their dreaming in the coming millions of years. No more business as usual.

    Every small and big ethnic groups in Ethiopia have been still demanding their own self rule against such backward and ever uncivilized mentalities. The persistent stubbornness of the ultra nationalists will help even more as a fuel in strengthening and speeding up the de-Amaharaization of the whole Ethiopian politics in order to substitute it with the politics of a true multinationalism. Watch out! We will have at least the following additional federal languages soon: afaan Oromoo, afaan Sidamaa , afaan Somalee, afaan Afar and Tigrenga.

  11. civic leadership , civic movements are essential part of democratic development. this must be encouraged and Iskender NEGA is at the forefront of the civic movement.
    Abiy Ahmad and the government he is leading should take the credit for this and should encourage Iskender Nega and applaud him for his effort.
    If Abiy Ahmad can tolerate olf/ Jawaar Mohammad he should surely tolerate Iskender Nega.
    such civic movements should be seen as the beginning of new dawn in ethiopia, because such public movements as Iskender is leading were impossible under the previous tplf fascists.
    It is right that the people of Addis abeba should be led by the people they elect. it is their democratic right as citizens of the city. Party appointed cadres should be seen as things of the past.
    Any threats and harrassment against Iskender Nega will only backfire.
