Re: Amharu say tribalism is not good, we say yes Amharic language is a tribal must be banned across ethnics???

History dictates. People not necessarily choose the working language of a country. English has not become the federal and state governments language in USA because people voted for it . It just happened.

Re: Amharu say tribalism is not good, we say yes Amharic language is a tribal must be banned across ethnics???

Yes, but Amharic became the federal government language a long time ago. That gave it impetus to spread to almost all parts of Ethiopia. As a result, Halafi , you could buy a one way ticket to Addis, Awassa, Diredwa and so on and start a new life , never look back to Tigray if you command the Amhari...

They could not detach themselves from that lifestyle. They remain until their death as armchairs politicians. Jalmero, the young rebel, could k...

Re: As Amharu say tribalism is not good, we say yes Amharic language is a tribal must be banned across ethnics???

In fact, I argue differently, Halafi. Amharic is one of the glue, the most important one, that helps to keep Ethiopia intact. Your uncles made an error when they singled out the Amharas were the problem. But even they had the wisdom not to mess with Amharic. It is a widely used language in Ethiopia....

Eden, you assume all politicians uphold the same politics no matter what That is not true. Merrara whom you claim still a moderate is a textbook example. He started his politics as an idealist young man. He joined MESON , not OLF , which is not an ethnic party. Forget about moderate or not , the you...

Well, I have a different take. This is crucial time. This is the best opportunity Abiy was handed over to bury the wishes of those who want to destabilize Ethiopia. The great majority of Ethiopians are and will be behind him. Those who sow hatred among Ethiopians have been handled with hand gloves f...

Re: Oromia president delivers powerful message in tears

It is a powerful speech, and I believe he meant it every words that he spoke. This is a critical time. Abiy is the prime minister of Ethiopia when the country needs a decisive leader. Ethiopia cannot keep going while politicians who make a living inciting hatred between Ethiopians go unchecked. They...

The contrary is true. The Abiy government will loose its legitimacy if Jawar be freed without the court deciding his fate. The law should apply to all Ethiopians equally. There should not be a separate law for Oromo activists and politicians. Now, Abiy has consolidated his power — which I support — ...

This is a delusion of greater proportion. In fact, Abiy is more popular now than any time of his premiership. He has shown the gut to bring to justice Jawar and Bekele.
