OPINION By Guangul Teshager (lawayer)
There r some issues u leave to be resolved later. There r issues time itself will somehow find a solution for. There are always issues u put at the back bench. U need to prioritize them and they deserve ur time and attention accordingly. U need to put in order ur agendas as per their degree of importance. U need to take care not to suffer or cause harm due to priority disorder.
Ethiopia at present is in a sea of massive problems. Carrying this or that flag, celebrating an occasion at piassa or merkato etc etc are NOT burning issues at present. Not at all! We do have burning issues, more serious problems. The economy is collapsing. The country may plunge into a total anarchy, out and out lawlessness if some austerity measures to stabilize it are not in place forthwith. The USA, Europe and reactionary and rotten Islamic nations are up against us using our ethnic and religious differences. At this juncture, any group obsessed with ethnic division is a fifth columnist aiding Egypt USA UK EU to
Olf, Tplf are well known fifth columnists, agent provocateurs, mercenaries. U just fight them nail and teeth. But groups like nama, balderas should refrain from disruptive, divisive, anti ethiopia activities. They are overly confrontational and argumentative. They are out to cause chaotic situations and lead us to an all out civil war. This is diabolic and we should condemn it. We do need a united force to liquidate tplf, olf and face the external enemy.
In 1975 (69 our cal) we had same scenario. Our external enemies Somalia of ziad bare, Sudan, Egypt did declare a well coordinated war being financed, sponsored and encouraged by the USA UK and europe. Internally, shabia, weyane, eprp were the fifth columnists directly, indirectly supporting ziad bare. eprp leaders , tplf and shabia leaders started using somalia passport to travel abroad. Fortunately, Russia (the then soviet union), Cuba, Yemen, east Germany and the entire east bloc supported us. We won the war.
Now we are alone. No country will send soldiers to fight and die for us. No country gives us weapons by credit. We are fighting our war with the help of our own God and to some extent with the help of Russia and China.
This is the time we should come together in defence of our country. Abiy regime is fighting against tplf and olf. It is ridiculous, utterly nonsense to suspect Abiy of being pro tplf, pro olf, pro Egypt etc. All those who spread and/or believe such nonsense do have chickens brain, they are morons.
Let us make a historical reference. During derg era, there were tplf, olf, weyane agents who infiltrated mengistu’s regime to sabotage us from within. It doesn’t mean mengistu was weyane. Now after 40 years kiflu tadesse told us shimelis mazengia of the wpe polite bureau member was a hard core eprp , a mole assigned to sabotage the revolution from within. Kiflu didn’t tell us the damage shimelis mazengia caused. He didn’t tell us what secrets he divulged to not only eprp, but also to the CIA, USA EU weyane, shabia, Egypt etc. We do have same situation. So my fellow citizens beware of the devils who masquerade as angels
