TPLF, the Architects of Apartheid 2.0, aka Ethnic Federalism, Speak. Ethiopians Should not Listen

Yesterday afternoon Debretsion G. Michael, the vice president of Tigray Regional State and the Chairman of the TPLF, went on a public forum to accuse the Amhara Democratic Party of fostering “chauvinist forces” and demanded that the ADP should apologize to the Ethiopian people for radicalizing society. There is only one word that can describe the TPLF’s statement: Chutzpah.

There is a certain level of cognitive dissonance needed for the same oppressive party that ruled Ethiopia with an iron fist for 27 years and radicalized the Ethiopian population by introducing tribal politics by way of Ethnic Federalism to demand another party apologize for the radicalization they birthed. Before Ato Debretsion accuses the ADP of being subversive, he should really look in the mirror and admit the TPLF’s failed era of repression and ethnic favoritism is the prime reason why Ethiopia stands at the precipice of disintegration.

Sadly, Ato Debretsion has decided to go the opposite route. Instead of being a voice of unity and reconciliation, he is pouring fuel on the fire by encouraging yet more separatism and a further erosion of Ethiopia. By endorsing southern regions’ demands for statehood based on ethnic lines and arguing for an even greater focus on ethnicity and weakening nationality, Ato Debretsion is basically arguing for the “greater Tigray” that some of the most radical voices within TPLF were agitating for during Meles Zenawi’s era....continued...

I usually disagree with you but this time i agree.
Part of greater tigrays plans is to obviously have a weakened, fragmented Ethiopia, that could not "pose a threat" to them. 2nd part is to forcefully annex eritrean ports. Oromos and eritreans alone though are more than strong enough to stop such a thing from happening though.
