  1. Eskinder Nega is indescribable racist.  He works day and night to discredite the Oromo people. He and those like him anti-Oromo elements may try everything under the sky to fulfill their political ambitions. But it is futile. Now we are in the era of Qeerroos. There is no more Finfinne which you used to gallop as it pleased you. Let me assure you for a record, your attempts will never bring back the inhuman eras of the uprooted and eradicated systems. They have gone for good and will not came back again. Ethiopia cannot go back to the old eras of “golden times”. Nobody can impose again it’s hagemoy more in Oromia. The integrity of Oromia including Finfinnee will be untouchable. The Oromo nation has been fighting injustice and subjugation in it’s  homeland, Oromia in order to regain it’s human dignity as one of the great nations of East Africa. This great nation will also protect it’s political gains. Just wait and watch out! 

    Strangely, Eskinder Nega considers himself as his ghost father, Menilik (the Hitler of Africa) who used to decide over everything as almighty. His Menilik used to give different parts of Oromia to his servants during his “golden time”.  Likewise Eskinder trys to promise the beloved Oromo son Takle Uma to hand over  Finfinnee if he denaunce the special interests of Oromia on Finfinne which is one of the best components of the Ethiopian constitution. His campaign is not new. It is just the continuation of their campaigns against the Oromo people.  They have been attacking Tekle Uma since he swore in as the mayor of Finfinne because he is an Oromo. If someone from Gonder had took the position, we would have never heard such noises. But we need no permission from those mentally retarded like Eskinder to get back Finfinne as an integral part of Oromia. We will get it back by our struggles likewise we librated Eskinder from the bondage the TPLF. Thus, the Oromo people will not strife any more for the special interests. If you don’t want to see the Oromo daughters and sons waking proudly in Finfinne you can leave our city peacefully, otherwise your liberators will teach you soon unforgettable lessons. 

    The claim of  Eskinder Nega is similar to that of some racist white settlers of Southafrica who tried to claim their own state within Southafrica at the beginning of the 90th. Those individuals were growing up with the mentalities of apartheid and they cannot accept the Africans as an equal human being. Therefore, it was a shame for them to live with the Africans as an equal citizen. We have been entertaining such latent apartheid and segregation mentalists in Ethiopia since the Era of Menelik. For them the Oromo nation is subhuman and it’s cultural and social values are irrelevant.  But now the time of such individuals with antihuman mentalities is up. No more segregation and discrimination of the Oromo nation and it’s culture and laguage in it’s own homeland. The sleeping giant is awake. The dreams of persons like Eskinder are just a sign of desperation and hopelessness. No one can help them. Eskinder Nega is agains the basic human rights of the OROMO nation even though he grew up in Finfine, Oromia. 

    This ugly guy was at war with the TPLF only becuse of his hegemonic ambitions which was in conflict with that of the TPLF. He has been struggling to bring back the hegemony of his forefathers in Oromia. Eskinder equates last time his liberator (the QEERROOS) with Nazi. Do you think that such individuals stand for human rights?  Because of Qeerroos why he is able to speak now freely. But he uses his pen to wrongly accuse them instead of promoting democracy. He is just anti-Oromo. He is the worst Oromophobia. He is just disrespectful guy. Even his radical statements make the Oromo nation and other subjugated nations in Ethiopia more strong and determined to fight his backward and uncivilized mentalities and ideologies.

  2. A proverb in afaan Oromoo teaches us: “A child who missed its mom only for an hour cried more loudly than that who lost its mother forever because of death”. Everything in Ethiopia is like that vice versa. 

    According to the current statistics of the Ethiopian Airlines more than 40 percent of it’s employees are from Amahara region  about 25 percent from Tigray and only about 6 percent are from Oromia. But still you complain about it more than the Oromo do. You better call it the Airlines of the Amhara people. But still they complain more loudly that the Oromo do.

    The racists are campaigning against the Oromo individuals and people in all fronts. They don’t want to see Chala or Gemachuu as leader in any institution. They think that the Oromo have no deserved to lead. They used to consider the Oromo individuals as their servants and Oromia as their private property. Still they are dreaming to see the Oromo in the sate of serfdom. This guy a comrade of the ugly Eskinder Nega. Let me tell you the naked realities: you will never dictate the Oromo people anymore. If you believe in equality try to promote it. Otherwise keep your filthy mouth shut. We are in the era of the Qeerroos.

    The campaign of Eskinder Nega and his comrades in all fronts is not new. It is just the continuation of their campaigns against the Oromo people in the last 140 years.  They have been attacking Tekle Uma since he swore in as the mayor of Finfinne because he is an Oromo. If someone from Gonder had took the position, we would have never heard such noises. But we need no permission from those mentally retarded like Eskinder to get back Finfinne as an integral part of Oromia. We will get it back by our struggles likewise we librated Eskinder from the bondage the TPLF. Thus, the Oromo people will not strife any more for the special interests. If you don’t want to see the Oromo daughters and sons waking proudly in Finfinne you can leave our city peacefully, otherwise your liberators will teach you soon unforgettable lessons.

    Besides that, Finfinne is not an island and cannot stand by itself. It depends in all aspects on Oromia. Mind you: Without Oromia no Finfinne! Without the whole Oromia including Finfinne there will be no Ethiopia. Thus, it is your choice to live with this great nation in peace or to face unnecessary confrontation. The noises here and there can not change the truth and natural rights of the Oromo nation. 

    Finally, let me make it clear:The demands of the Oromo people are the ownership of the city itself and the development of afaan Oromoo, Oromo culture and values in the city. Of course the basic human rights including all the social, cultural and economic rights of the residents of the Finfinne city will be respected at the individual and group levels fully. Beyond that the self rule of the city will be respected. But it should not contradict itself with the interests of the Oromo nation. The main problem is not about the rights of the residents in Finfinne but about Oromo phobia. Some educated, but backward minded individuals hate the Oromo values, culture and language everywhere and every day. 

    According to the anti-Oromo elements: first of all the Amahara and amharic speaking have full rights to do what they please in Finfinne, second the Africans and the rest of the world, but not Oromo. Besides that ever language can used in Finfinne, but not afaan Oromoo.
    But it is futile! No more business as usual!

    If you want to know the truth, we are all Oromo first and OLF in our hearts including the beloved leaders of that country at this crucial time!

  3. Gamadda:

    Your sophistic belongs to rubbish.
    Do not forget about the Galla invasion post Ahmed Gragn devastation of Ethiopia. Your silly argument and selfish claim of Ethiopia is unwarranted. If we count the men your ancestors castrated – No monument will be adequate.
    Go back to your original place – coastal Somalia.
    Read Professor Lewis`s account on the Galla expansion, written in the 1960`s.

  4. Mesfin,

    The politics of dummy emotion and the history of falsehood will not have place in the future of the Ethiopian political landscapes. The times of the political ideologies of the Debteraists are already over. No more room for nonsense assertion and empty noises.

    You are a subhuman and mentally retarded ane handicapped person. Your usual empty AKAKI SEREF will bring you the final nightmare to you and those like you! Watch out! Before you open your filthy mouth try to settle first your political problems with the Agewo, Qimanti and many others within the regional state of Amahara.

  5. Gamadda: If you think Oromo expansion is an invented history (as proposed by OLF and supported by OLF cadre historians like Assafa Jalata, Mohamed Hassan… ) you have four options

    1. Destroy thousands or even 100s of thousands of books about Oromo expansion in libraries of Europe, America, Africa and Ethiopia before you ask Addis Ababa as property of Oromo that way you will make sure that Oromo children only learn history fabricated by some crazy racist ignorant Oromo politicians whom have no degree or knowldge about history at all. Almost all Oromo activists and politicians do hold American or European citizenship which makes easy for them to advocate for the destruction of these documents written by respected historians of the world. These 1000s of researches state that Oromos indeed expanded and assimilated millions of Nilotic speaking, Omotic speaking, Semitic speaking and Other highland cushitic speaking people by Gudifacha, Mogassa & Meridichai system. While they expand between 1530-1900 they burnt mosques and churches, destroyed states and civilizations, renamed 1000s of historically recorded village names to Oromo, displaced other ethnic-groups from their native land, genocide, raped, sold them to slavery, castrated those who resisted Oromo rule. Just note that whatever you claim Amharas did also Oromos did probably even worse because within 100 year of Oromo expansion many African ethnicgroups recorded in history disappeared while after Menelik expansion non of African tribes disappeared infact those whom were few 1,000s in 1800s are now in millions and am proud they still do exist hopefully they will exist in the future.

    2. If option one is not possible bring in the Chinese style communism over the Oromo people so that Oromos do not learn about the history of Oromo expansion, about their identity, democracy and individual liberty like China is doing right now by censoring internet and disconnect the Oromos from global civilization.

    3. Even if you dont like it accept the truth i.e. all Ethiopians have been mixing one another for 1,000s of years and that in all of us DNA all Ethiopians exist (i.e. even if you hate Amharas or Tigrayans or Gurages or Gamos you have their DNA running through your blood) and that all Ethiopians were once were assimilated or were assimilating others and that all Ethiopians created the language, culture, system or whatever you say only belongs to Oromos or Amharas or Afars or Somalis or Tigryans and that all land in Ethiopia belongs to all the over 200 cultural and religious groups. Before modern African countries created there is only African land whereby all African tribes were moving freely and owning any land as they wish. There have never been Oromo land or Amhara land. Some Oromos occupied a land 400 years ago that doesnot belong to them and assimilated the natives and now they are living on it good for them ofcourse they they also should live on it in the future. The Amharas, Gurages, Gamos and other ethnicgroups occupied Addis Ababa so what? Its exactly what the Oromos did 400 years ago? Oromos were living and rulling Gondar and even establishing cities like Debre Tabor during zemene mesafint meaning Oromos can also go back to Gondar and live there or to any parts of Ethiopia as they wish. All land in Ethiopia have been for all for 1,000s of years and it should be in the future.

    4. For some who are too racist and dont like to see Amharas or non Oromos then they can go to USA or Europe and get their citizenship, after all 50% of Ethiopians dont like their country Ethiopia and if given the opportunity they want to move to the West to live their and change their citizenship and assimilate themselves and their children willingly to none African language and culture.

    5. Go to civil war and make 100 million people stateless people flooding the refugee camps of the world like neighbouring Somalian people. If the most homogeneous people in Africa Somalians (1 language, 1 dialect, 1 religion, 1 culture, 1 race, all pastoralist) became stateless for over 30 years it’s most likely more years to be stateless for all Ethiopians in general and for Oromos as well because compared to Somalians Oromos are more diverse (4 major religions, 10s of cultural groups, 10s of Oromo dialects, agrarian vs pastoralist, millions of non Oromos living with Oromos, various pre 16th century historical states, highland geography good for guerrilla inter tribal fighting)

  6. Gamadaa, all Ethiopians have been mixing each other for 1,000s of years meaning all language, culture, history within Ethiopia is created by all Ethiopians and belong to all Ethiopians. Someone have to be an ignorant to claim this language, culture, history belongs to only x y tribe. Wether you like it or not the over 80 tribes of Ethiopians are within everyone of us DNA (test your DNA or if you cant be able to do that then simply see your self in mirror and compare yourself with other tribes of Ethiopia).

    Based on these facts I mentioned above all Ethiopians can claim all parts of Ethiopia by claiming Nilotes ancestry (the first natives and the rightful ownners of Horn of African land ). All land in Ethiopia belongs to all since every single one of us can all claim Oromo ancestry, Amhara ancestory, Omotic ancestory, Nilotes ancestory and if any land must be returned to the original native people then it should be returned to Gambela and Benishangul Nilotes.

  7. Gamada said
    “The politics of dummy emotion and the history of falsehood will not have place in the future of the Ethiopian political landscapes. The times of the political ideologies of the Debteraists are already over. No more room for nonsense assertion and empty noises.”

    I completely agree with you, we need our people to know who they are, their true identity, their true history based on the work of professional African, Arab and the rest of the world historians. Based on these respected historians research the ugly side of Oromo expansion should be part of the future politics of Ethiopia and infact why not erect monument for all the historically recorded people and states that were destroyed and genocide by Oromo expansion? As we have Anole monument with breast why not build statue of men genitals in memory of the castrated subjects of Oromo who sacrificed while fighting for their nation, state and civilization? It is documented that the main reason Oromo expanded is due to their love for war to take mens genitals to show that they are brave and get as many wifes as possible. The Oromos go to war either to kill or killed. This love for war to get mens genitals culture still continued until the coming of Menelik and sadly even Menelik had no power over the many Oromos soldiers under his army, as a result the Oromos even castrated many Amharas who went to battle Menelik. In the 16th century fearing the Oromo culture of castration many indigenous tribes of Nilotes, Omotics, Sidamas-Hadiyas and Semites assimilated themselves to Oromo who destroyed their states and civilizations and this should be part of the future of Ethiopian politics and that todays Oromo speaking people need to know that their great great grand fathers and mothers had states and civilizations. Egyptians are thought of their ancient history eventhough todays Egyptians have abandoned the ancient Egyptians copt language, religion, culture and system to that of Arabic language and Islam yet Egyptians proudly claim the ancient civilization was built by them and consider it as part of their identity and we should learn from Egyptians and teach every Oromos and all other tribes of Ethiopia their true history and true identity.

    As you said “The politics of dummy emotion and the history of falsehood will not have place in the future of the Ethiopian political landscapes.” OLF need to recognize that the great great grand fathers and mothers of todays Oromo speaking people had a powerful state/nation and civilization called Damot in Welega area and that the Damot people used to speak Omotic language, OLF need to recognize that there were people called Gafats who speak semitic language in todays West Shoa and East Welega, OLF need to recognize that there was state/nation called Hadiya that was ruled by Garad and once was ruled by Elleni and this kingdom once stretched from Kambata-Silti to todays Arsi and all the way to Harar. OLF also needs to recognise Addis Ababa before called Finifine it was called Barara around 1400s and Barara (now Addis Ababa) have been the capital of Ethiopian empire from 1400s till Gragn Mohamed destroyed it, the palaces and the churches and their ruins still survives in the mountains of Addis and should be open for public view.

    In conclusion if there is a consensus to emphasis only the ugly side of Menelik expansion so should we and emphasis the ugly side of Oromo expansion and in the end you will only produce a generation that is ashmed of being Oromo and being Ethiopian, a confused people and stateless people who have no good past memory dont know where they are heading and extremist like ISIS, Alshabab and Alqaeda will takeover these confused hopeless people.

    My opinion is that leave the ugly side of Menelik expansion to library for historians and dont politicise it as no politician ephasised the ugly side of Oromo expansion and polticise it. Before the arrival of ethnic politics the people on the ground were not aware of Menelik cut breast or aware of the Oromos had the love of going to war to get mens genitals and people were not aware Oromos expanded by conducting bloody wars.

  8. The stupid Emanuel Mohamed,

    You used to tell us a fiction as historical facts about your ethnic group. Some years back you told us  that your ancestors arrived at the Horn of Africa around 500 B.C from the middle east. Now you claim you are an African origin. You don’t know your roots and true history. You are just like wild animals.

    You cannot trace back to find your roots and history. That is why you tried always to disown theirs history and cultures. 

    Read the following short historical fact, in order to enlighten yourself about your origins:

    The Habeshas are new comers to the region. Read the following short piece: According to Dr. Eduard Glaser, a renowned Austrian epigraphist and historian, Habeshas were originally from Southeastern Yemen who lived east of the Hadhramaut kingdom in the modern district of Mahra. He believed the etymology of Habesha must have derived from the Mahri language which means “gatherers” (as in gatherers of incense). He asserted that the Mahrites and their language should be regarded as the descendants of the people and speech of ancient Habeshas.

  9. Gamadaa, you are moron stupid or crazy brainwashed cadre sponsored by politicians who advocate for Oromo pure supremacist race, Tigrayan pure supremacist race, Amhara pure supremacist race etc. If you are allergic to speaking people with respect then no problem I can speak your way with disrespect.

    Tribalist=Racist guys you need to know that your way is to the hell and work 24/7 to make the Horn of Africa a hell. Can you guys use your brain and accept the truth there is no such thing as Amhara race, Oromo race, Tigray race there is only one race and one identity in the Horn of Africa and that identity you can call it one black people or one mixed black people.

    Use the internet for research to enlighten your brainwashed brain instead of using it for childish game. Research the internet or go to libraries near you and you will find out that the DNA for the Horn of African people is the same. If you are allergic to reading then use your own mind and make your own observation, see yourself in mirror and compare yourself with other people coming from the Horn of Africa or simply observe the physical appearance of the 547 member of parliament of Ethiopia who came representing the 547 districts of Ethiopia and see if you can tell if one is an Oromo or Amhara or Tigrayan if they all speak let say English and all dress European suit or American Jeans.

    50% of Oromo and Somali DNA comes from East African black tribes and the other 50% come from the North African and Middle Eastern tribes and Amharas and Tigrayns also have the same DNA with 50% coming from East African black tribes and the other 50% coming from North African and Middle Easter tribes. Therefore, Oromos Tigrayans Somalis and Amharas all trace half their ancestry from Middle eastern/Caucasoid race (migrants) and half from black race (natives). Based on DNA Amhara Oromo Tigrayan Somali are one race and one people and these one race one people created Oromo language Amharic language and Tigrayan language…over 100 languages and created all cultures, systems and built all the civilizations and states in the Horn and because of the European colonization these one race one people forced to live into 5 countries and were forced to create five borders that were non existent in the 1000s year of Horn of African history.

    Let me give you another important part of our history i.e. about slavery. Before 1900s all tribes including Oromos, Somalis, Amharas & Somalis owned red slaves (teyayim bariyawoch) and Nilote slaves in the millions and intermix & assimilated them. All tribes of Ethiopia sold slaves or were raided by their neighbors and their people taken to other areas. Ethiopias population census in the early 1900s comprised 1/3 slaves meaning 33 million of todays Ethiopians are descendants of the 1900s slaves and that their exact origin is unknown but were brought from all parts of Ethiopia. In addition to slaves millions of ruling classes (soldiers, princes, religion leaders sheiks & preists, traders, pastoralists etc) probably making up another 1/3 have been moving freely and settling to various parts of Ethiopia and Horn of Africa making the people of the Horn not just a result of ancient intermixing but of a recent and ancient intermixing that is still going on as we speak.

    Accept this truth even if this go against your crazy tribalist=racist Nazi style ideology that says “ohh wait a minute we are supremacist pure X tribe how dare you associating me with Y tribe”.
