If true, Dr. Abiy will secure his re-election and do a great service to the country at the same time

Arts TV claims PP's decision to move to presidential system. For a highly divided country with majority tribal parties like ours, a presidential system is not an option but a must. Anyone who wants to lead the country must face the whole public and be elected by all. Currently, it is enough for his ...

Re: The deal! Connecting the dots and making sense of the release of TPLF officials [updated].

Dr. Abiy today hinted about the benefits of releasing the 6 TPLF leaders and also prepared the parliament for the coming official negotiation/agreement with the TPLF and most likely also budget for Tigray. He said that Ethiopia has hugely benefited (monetary/diplomatic) from the release of those 6 T...

Re: Oromon Tamrat Negera Feyisa message for Ethiopian Entrepreneurs and DDT

I don't like most of the warmongering and sometimes hate speech of Tamerat but he has a point here. Just few weeks ago, a friend of mine, who is himself from Wollega and lives in the west, took his wife and kids to Ethiopia to have a nice vacation and to show his kids his home region, Oromia but end...

Re: The deal! Connecting the dots and making sense of the release of TPLF officials [updated].

By now there is no doubt that there is at least an ongoing negotiation. As Getachew Reda already told us (see video below), the federal government demanded TPLF accepts Wolkait as part of Gonder as it used to be under ክፍለ ሃገር. But if TPLF accepts this offer, then TPLF may have also requested that T...

Re: The deal! Connecting the dots and making sense of the release of TPLF officials [updated].

Sabur, read again. Getachew Reda while TPLF was in Wollo and nearing Showa said on Tigray/Woyane TV that Obasanjo urged them to accept Wolkait as part of Gonder. So, it seems PM Abiy did not offer them Wolkait but it seems he offered them to let them rule Tigray, release TPLF officials, may be he wi...

PM Advisor Daniel Kebret hints a possible economic reward PM Abiy got from the west in return for the deal with TPLF. If true, this is even better :lol: https://www.facebook.com/tsilat23/posts/5425201480828923 https://www.facebook.com/tsilat23/posts/5425201480828923 https://i.ibb.co/L9NCgJv/image.png

Re: The deal! Connecting the dots and making sense of the release of TPLF officials [updated].

Thinking back, the sequence of events and the ultimate acceptance by TPLF of the offer made by PM could be as follows: While TPLF was in Wollo and nearing northern Showa, the AU mediator Obasanjo went to Mekele and presented PM Abiy's offer for peace. We know now for sure that the federal government...

Re: The deal! Connecting the dots and making sense of the release of TPLF officials.

The PM asks Ethiopians to take time and meditate on his hard to sell decision which he called "medicine" and promises that it is the best for the country which I agree unless someone shows me a better alternative. And in my view, as long as Wolkait remains under Amhara administration, the backlash f...

Re: The deal! Connecting the dots and making sense of the release of TPLF officials.

I have never said TPLF withdrew willingly, it was clearly defeated on the battle field. When I say the military promotion was exaggerated, I am not saying ENDF didn't win the war, no I am only pointing to the fact that way too many generals were promoted (over 100) and one was even given a field mar...

The deal! Connecting the dots and making sense of the release of TPLF officials [updated].

Many Ethiopians, including myself, were taken by surprise when they heard the release of TPLF officials such as Sebehat Nega & co. My friends in Addis Ababa told me that everybody is depressed, angry and think this is a mockery of justice. The same feeling is shared by many diasporas that are curren...

Re: To fascist Abiy: Tigray does not care if you rule for the next 1K years but no fed money & soldier for Amhara

Halafi, remember Tigray had all the disputed lands before the start of the war. All disputed lands between Amhara and Tigray were under Tigray and the disputed lands between Tigray and Eritrea also were under Tigray. If TPLF's issue was only with Amhara then why did it massacred ca. 6000 ENDF soldi...

Re: unconditional surrender should be the ultimatum of the PM

kibramlak, you need to calm down and see the reality free of emotions. Administrating Tigray is the biggest issue and where the government last time completely failed. Why? Because tigreans don't want any other administration other than TPLF. They refused to cooperate. The government could not get l...

Re: Damned if you do and damned if you don't. The dilemma of PM Abiy in Tigray

Ok, it is now official. The federal government just announced that it has halted the advances of ENDF into Tigray. Interesting to note that the government gives the people of Tigray and their support for TPLF as the main reason for this decision. As I mentioned above this decision is not popular and...

Many Ethiopians are calling for ENDF to march to Mekele and destroy TPLF once and for all. At the same time, PP and the government are hinting at a negotiated settlement which is making many Ethiopians very angry. Many Ethiopians don't seem to understand the dilemma the Abiy government is in. From p...

This is very unusual. He added a crucial statement that may help us understand why a TPLF official is showering Amharas...

Re: The two possible scenarios that could soon be unfolding in the coming days

Very sad graphic images of dead TDF fighters are emerging which is too graphic to share. It is so sad to see human corps like flies lying allover the place. TPLF leadership sent these kids into a sure death trap in a delusional attempt to come back to 4 Killo. What a disturbing scene!
