Ethiopia: Oromo Liberation Front – Press Release – The prosperity group has arrested OLF members and leaders again (20.12.2020)

Ethiopia: Joint letter from the Eritrean Political Forces (EPF) letter to UN High Commissioner for Refugees Flippo Grandi – Subject: Urgent call to protect and save Eritrean refugees in the Tigray Region and other parts of Ethiopia from abduction, killing and forced reparation to the war zone (16.12.2020)

Opinion: Abiy gone from the “Big Brother” to a Bounty Hunter

“I want them to hear me: Yesterday evening, around midnight, we saw them from the situation room in the area between Hagere Selam and Abiy Addi,” Abiy said in remarks to lawmakers, referring to two towns west of the Tigray capital Mekele. “We didn’t attack them at night because as they retreated they took their wives, children and abducted soldiers… But this will not continue.”” (Ahram Online – ‘ Ethiopia’s Abiy says has Tigray leaders in his sights’ 30.11.2020).

This here was parts of speech to the House of Federation as the Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali wanted to show his strength and control of the conflict. Which he has issued in the Tigray Region on the 3rd November 2020. Just after a few weeks time he wanted to tell and show the world that he had the world by the balls. However, that isn’t true.

As another 18 days from the 30th November 2020 the Prime Minister and his men doesn’t have the CCTV on the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) Central Committee. Now, they don’t have them monitored on wire-tap. The State have clearly no idea where the TPLF leadership is located. If they did. They wouldn’t 2 weeks later ask for bounty hunters to rescue them. Maybe, even mercenaries will start coming to hunt after them.

Addis Ababa December 18/2020 (ENA) Ethiopian Ministry of National Defense Force announced a reward of 10 million Birr to anyone who provides information on the whereabouts of the TPLF junta leaders. Head of Information Department at the Ministry of National Defense Force, Lieutenant General Asrat Denero told journalists today that members of the National Defense Force and Federal Police are working in partnership to bring the junta leadership to justice as soon as possible” (Ethiopian News Agency (ENA) – ‘Ministry to Reward 10 Mln Birr for Information on Whereabouts of TPLF Cliques’ 18.12.2020).

What we can wonder about? Where did the eyes of the state go?

Since they had the leadership of TPLF at their fingertips. They were in the magical sphere of the situation room. As the Federal Government was closing in on them. The National Army, Amhara Paramilitary Group (Fano) and Eritrean Army all going after the TPLF. However, all of these forces and their enterprise clearly didn’t have the sights on them as he said.

Now the Bounty Hunters are called in and the Ghostbusters too. The whole brigade as they want the rats and snitches to call the police. The authorities who are having a Law Enforcement Operation and not calling it warfare.

The Prime Minister should answer for this, because something isn’t adding up. That he has them in the Situation Room a few weeks ago and now needs advice to find them. This is peculiar lie, but wars also undress emperors and their motives.

There is little redeeming factors to this. The Prime Minister boosted his ego, but really didn’t have it. Wanted to sound flamboyant, but in the end the lie caught him. If he knew where they were and are. He wouldn’t need some random advice and guidance on way to find them.

Who is he kidding here?

He lied about the refugees and now he lied about the TPLF in his scope. We can wonder what’s next, but a truth teller the PM isn’t. Caught in another one yet again. Peace.

Ethiopia: Bounty put on the TPLF leaders

Addis Ababa December 18/2020 (ENA) Ethiopian Ministry of National Defense Force announced a reward of 10 million Birr to anyone who provides information on the whereabouts of the TPLF junta leaders. Head of Information Department at the Ministry of National Defense Force, Lieutenant General Asrat Denero told journalists today that members of the National Defense Force and Federal Police are working in partnership to bring the junta leadership to justice as soon as possible” (Ethiopian News Agency (ENA) – ‘Ministry to Reward 10 Mln Birr for Information on Whereabouts of TPLF Cliques’ 18.12.2020).

This is a continued measures put on the Tigray Peolpe’s Liberation Front (TLPF) and their Central Committee members. These are now directly attacked and planned arrests of. That is not shocking, as there been rumours of arrests on the 6th December 2020. Which apparently wasn’t true… and was mere speculations.

The Tigray conflict has been going strong since 3rd November 2020. It is now prolonging. Already in the end of November 2020 the Prime Minister said the Federal Government was starting the “Final Phase” which is still continuing to this day. Meaning weeks after calling the end … they are now calling for bounties on their heads. That shows the citizens and population of the region is supporting their leaders. Not being behind the interim regional government appointed by Addis Ababa.

That is why the Prosperity Party and the Prime Minister Abiy is using this scheme to see if they can get ratted out. It is very special to promise money to people who have frozen bank-accounts and cannot access their money in the banks. The state has frozen the money and stopped them from even getting it out. While the state have blocked aid, international aid and only very limited supply to all the ones in need.

Therefore, the addition of giving money here is vicious. As even if the Tigrayans did take it and told on the TPLF Central Committee members who are fugitives in their own state and republic. The TPLF have been deemed an “terrorist organization” by the House of Federation. Therefore, they have legitimized their means of destruction and deployment of the army in Tigray. This has been done now since early November 2020. So, the state have professed to have control of the region and taking over major towns and vital routes. However, they are not instilled or have the loyalty of the region.

If the Prime Minister and PP has the region in their hands. Why are they doling out money to get witnesses and snitches on their elected leadership?

The Federal Government are showing how they are lacking intelligence or getting information. When they have to pay people to get valuable information about the possible location or where they was spotted last. If the rumours or speculations earlier this month is true… then the government should find people who is dressed like priests. Because, that was the speculated way they got arrested.

Well, the state is clearly not handling this well and very reactionary. As they are doing this now. After all their efforts. The usage of the National Army, Amhara paramilitary group (Fano) and the Eritrean Army. All of this armies and soldiers on the ground have clearly not massed up to TPLF. As they we’re able to run away from battlefields of the region.

That says a lot… It is really rich for someone saying they have control and ended the battle early. Is now asking for bounties on their heads. Hoping for either snitches or bounty hunters to find the TPLF Central Committee. Peace.

Opinion: OLF-Shane/Shene is an imaginary group…

If you want to be deceived and lied too. It is every easy. Especially, when one group, one party and one state controls the airwaves. When one man and his “yes men” delivers all the information and nobody can check it. However, that makes it more important to say it as it is.

Yes, there is an Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) and been an entity since the 1973. The OLF was registered as a Political Party in November 2018. Recently in Kenya, the Prime Minister Abiy claimed the OLF was the same as Al-Shabaab. Clearly offering the narrative that the Oromo Party is an enemy and a terrorist organization.

This is why the state and National Broadcasters are busy scheming and making reasons to deregister and vilify the OLF. They have already arrested the leadership of OLF and also taken activists behind bars. The state is already blocking the telecommunication and airwaves in parts of Oromia as well. Where people are dying because of state officers and law enforcement.

Yesterday alone in Wallaga, Oromia. The state killed 358 civilians and arrested 2900 “suspects”. This they did as they were against the imaginary group OLF-Shane/Shene. A group that is non-existent and only in the mind of the regime. It is a mirage and bad reflection of judgment creating a group out of thin-air.

The Prosperity Party, the ENDF and all its comrades are really foolish fighting ghosts and hot-air. They will find very little and only cause more harm. They are only creating a bloodshed and more grief. These actions are not getting more friends, but more enemies. As the grudges and the ones who lost loved ones. Might want to later down line avenge these lost ones. The ones in struggle wants to make them martyrs and make a statement.

Because, the state is coming with injustice and extra judicial killings. Having a massacre in Wallaga Oromia against nobody. They are causing more conflict and that needs to be addressed. Right now the war-fare in Tigray gets all the headlines. However, the massacre in Wallaga, Oromia shouldn’t go forgotten. Especially, since its that many people who has lost their lives.

The state is fighting a make-belief, they are fighting an excuse and a lie. That is what they are doing. Not the OLF, but an OLF-Shane/Shene. Which is a mockery… and foolish mind-games that nobody should buy into. Its a bunch of rubbish. That is why its really showing how much propaganda the state wants out. As they are fact-checking international media, but speaking of non-existent armed group they are fighting in Oromia. That is how far they are taking it and what they are willing to do.

This is why you cannot trust the government and state media. When they are making up stuff like this. Creating evidence and enemies out of thin-air. If they can do that in Wallaga, Oromia on the 16th December 2020. What have they been doing elsewhere? There is a media blackout and the ones daring to speak out get either detained or ends up dead. So, its not like they would challenge the government and their narratives. These folks wants to live and have a job the next day. Even if that means lying or being the microphone for the state. They got no choice but to do so. Who wants to risk it all over coving a mass amount of death? You might end up with the same fate yourself.

This is really dangerous. When the state are willing to trade stories like this and sell it. There is no grounds for this. Instead of taking responsibility and telling it straight. They rather make up ghosts and fairy-tales. That is the bleak reality. Peace.
