I do not agree with the Ethiopian security personnel statement. I do think people have a right to say the prime minister is dead while he is still alive. The TPLF cadres, yes, have the right to live in their own world , a fantasy which they manufactured. If that fantasy includes the prime minister of Ethiopia being dead ,
and the TPLF once again being in Aratkilo running the tribal politics smoothly
— terribly to be frank — let it be.
No matter how genuine Ethiopians wonder what is wrong with these people — meaning the TPLF cadres — they do not come to understand them. The best thing to do in this circumstance is to compel oneself to believe their version of reality, how remote it might seem , might do exist. Everybody will be a winner.
Let the TPLF cadres live in their version of reality , and let the Abiy administration persists in implementing politics which is Ethiopian in its character and substance, well , everybody will be a winner.
Whether Ethiopians like it or not, they are going to live with alternate reality for some time to come.
How long that alternate reality exists however will be determined by the imagination of Ethiopians who abhor ethnic ethnic politics.

Thank you, Gallo!

There is another book written about Woldeab Woldemariam, which is locked up at a university. The author learned Tigrigna traveled to Eritrea, interviewed him, researched the British archives...etc. It doesn't align with the accepted story line, therefore it seems like they decided to lock it up than cause crisis.

The splits in the Liberal Progressive Party (LPP) led by Ras Asberom Tessema and the Muslim League led by Ibrahim Sultan and its consequences on the 1952 parliamentary elections

The Liberal Progressive Party (also known as Eritrea for Eritreans Party)
chaired by Ras Asberom Tessema was formed in 1947 and its leaders, among others included Sium Maacho and Woldeab Woldemariam. It called for the unity of Eritrea and Tigray or what is known as Tigray-Tigrinya, to start with. Its base centred mainly in Eastern Akelle Guzai. Ras Tessema was closely connected to the noble families of Tigray and was close to Ras Haile Sellasie Gugsa, a descendent of Emperor Yohannes, who had defected to Italy during the war with Ethiopia. After the Liberal Progressive Party (LPP) realized that the Tigray-Tigrinya unity was not feasible, later gave up this idea and called for Eritrea’s independence and was a close ally of the Muslim League (ML). Together with the ML, Pro-Italian Party and other small parties they formed the Independence Bloc in 1949. This Bloc was changed to the Democratic Front after the UN decided to federate Eritrea and Ethiopia in 1950. The LPP was against the Union with Ethiopia, opposed to the Shoan aristocracy and was regarded as close to the British. The previous title of Dejazmatch of Asberom Tessema was elevated to Ras by the British.

According to Trevaskis*, “after the death of the Tigriyan, Emperor Yohannes the Imperial Crown was passed to Menelik, a rival Shoan Abyssinian branch, and thus the Imperial seat was moved from Tigray to Shoa. It was natural then for the Tigriyans to be resentful and to seek to recover their imperial crown. When the Italians were defeated in 1941 and when there rumours were rife that Tigray’s leaders were planning to secede from the Empire and set their own kingdom with Ras Seyum as its head, Haile Sellasie took the prudent precaution of holding him in Addis under careful surveillance. Therefore the Eritrean Unionists and Ethiopia saw Ras Tesemma’s moves with suspicion, believing it was a British attempt to exploit secessionist feelings in Tigray.”

It was under those circumstances and due to many factors that a Tigriyan insurgency, widely known as the Weyane revolt broke out in 1943, under the leadership of rebel leaders such Blatta Haile Mariam Redda. The insurgents took control of Aby Adi in Tembien in May and later routed out government forces at several places and captured towns such as Adigrat. In both Tigray and Eritrea, it was widely believed that the British supported the rebellion, though the rebellion was crushed after British military planes, based in Aden bombed the rebels, at the request of the Emperor. Those rumours played into the Unionists suspecting that the party of Ras Tessema was supported by the British.

The Independence Bloc (IB), had a solid support after the Four Powers Commission’s departure. But prior to the United Nations Commission’s arrival the Unionists intensified their terrorist campaigns on the supporters of the IB and the British failed to exert law and order. This terror, the Unionists propaganda about Italy’s role, together with personal rivalries took its toll and within few days United Nations Commission’s arrival the Bloc was disrupted and lost many of its members. The two main parties that formed it split.

The Unionists were also working to dissuade the LPP from working with the ML. In June 1947, Ras Seyoum was suddenly released from detention in Adiss and appointed as the Governor of Tigray as a gesture to the LPP. After a delegation of the LLP led by Dejazmatch Abraha Tessema visited Addis Ababa and met with Ethiopian officials, he formed the ‘Liberal Unionist Party’ which called for conditional union with Ethiopia. Woldeab Woldemariam left the LPP to join a new group, ‘Association of Eritrean intellectuals’. The Chairman, Ras Asberom Tessema remained committed to LPP principles. It to be recalled he and his family was subjected to hardship for opposing union with Ethiopia.

The Muslim League which was formed in 1946 split into three in 1950, including the parent organization. The reasons were among others the situation of the IB that was subjected to Unionist terror and propaganda, plus other reasons related to the formation of the organization. Ibrahim Sultan has led what was known as the “Serf-emancipation Movement” which undermined the role of the ‘Shumagulle’ over the serfs, as it has weakened the old traditional structure and led to the formation of many tribes and tribal leaders. The Unionists had promised the tribal chiefs that they will make then regain their power if the supported Union with Ethiopia. The Unionists although they exploited the Coptic Church to their full advantage sent petitions to the British Administration to dissolve the ML, on grounds that it was based on religious grounds. The two split groups were:

Revelations, this is very interesting info. Some Eritrians in this forum were telling us that Tigray-Tigrinya aka Abay Tigray is a project of Tigrayans, Now you exposed them. Now you found out that it is in fact Eritreans project.

Gallo, it's a British/Tigrean project. Did you forget Woldeab Woldemariam's roots?
