Degitu,
If forgetting the past is necessary, what is the importance of celebrating the victory of Adawa?

You can't have it both ways, when your kind does crime, you say he/she is from other tribe. Isn't she from North? If she is Oromo, how can you then identify who is who today in that region? I have heard that Taitu refused medical treatment from his own doctor. If this is the case, this is huge betrayal against Minilik. As I have always say, there are black widows in Ethiopia mostly used to be bar ladies, noble men marry them and at the end when their service is satisfied for this bar women marrying these noble men, they may have ... on them. Even I have suspicion still goes on today but of course it is said it is natural cause of death.

But we know who Masud is given mission from his Egyptian masters that is why he hates Minilik

Thomas Hagos,
The correction you proposed is based on the record of Yeqen Jiboch?
