Response to Workie Birie, the 11 ½ years EPRDF Member

By Getachew  Reda                                                                                                                  

This time it is becoming clearer than ever, to why the Ethiopian political opposition unity is easily destroyed in shorter time any time it gets its act together. Reason might varies, one recent coming to the surprised as a cause among the various reasons never came to our knowledge as a cause for the disuniting of the opposition was: – the hidden work of some defected x-EPRDF Diplomats, press workers who served the regime as recent as several years, to two years back before they told us they defected from TPLF.

Rescuing Ethiopia from the Media Elite will be my recent article soon to be posted- stay tune for that. For now, let us examine the X- Diplomats of EPRDF member MR. Workie Birie’s recent article where he slander Dr.Taye and Eng. Hailu Shawul on his article “The new, the old, the Ethiopicide -By Workie Briye | December 17, 2007

In his recent article he wrote, Quote

Upon his arrival in the USA, the then president of KINIJIT allied himself with political groups, individuals, and talk radio hosts, all with dubious organizational standing, questionable motives, and suspect reputations, to say the least. This group did not spend much time before engaging in wild charges against few of the most cherished individuals, especially Dr. Berhanu and Wt. Birtukan. This group opened a 24/7 smear campaign against the other group by fabricating and reproducing rumors. To prove these spurious charges, they organized false and exaggerated testimonies, replete with nauseating small-talks, by individuals raged by envy, driven by personal vendetta. The campaign wedged by the pro Hailu group choreographed by Dr. Taye proved it self to be incapable, shallow, callused, backward, out of the time, mean-spirited, and corrupt. This campaign master-minded by Dr. Taye, perhaps endorsed, certainly acquiesced by Ato Hailu, caricatured these two individuals themselves as persons not having a hint of elementary civics and civility let alone a higher education with extensive experience in civil service, management, international business, diplomacy, and real time politics spanning over several decades

My Ethiopian brothers; this is a man who as you read it above quoted on his article slandering, belittling, degrading, dehumanizing these two  victims of his own party and his own government “TPLF/EPRDF”. Both are Ethiopian heroes, both were fighting the system which Workie Birie was serving and defending for 11 ½ (Eleven & half years). The same person was contributing to their suffering and agony while building his party EPRDF then, the same person is now still slandering his victims with out feeling a bit of spiritual or moral shame in his soul! Yes, you might be feeling shock to hear the same person still going after these two respected Ethiopians, but, you can’t help it; there are some natures who simply drop their moral and spiritual sense to the ground and act as the jungle cat on public after serving the very first system Workie Birie and his likes are currently condemning with us as if they didn’t built it to be the monster to suck the blood of Taye, Hailu and millions of millions of Ethiopians.

Since, I have dealt enough about him on another discussion forum where they accept his slanderous articles; I will only bring you the man who knows him better than you and I to tell us who this man is and his nature. I will only quote the highlights of this man’s nature in brief.

Do you recall an article presented by a former Ethiopian Diplomat who resides in Addis Ababa by the name “Ahmed Khalid” an article in title “what is Workie Birye Saber Rattling about?

He starting exposing this man as opportunist and continued saying    “…. Nonetheless, given his background, the style of the writings that he posted in his name does not support the claim that he is the actual author. Whatever the case, I did not expect him to be so unethically insulting and harassing his former colleagues, nor suspected that he harbored so much hatred to the current government and its Foreign Service, which he served with deep political commitment most likely emanating from his membership of the EPRDF party”. Mr.Ahmed Khalid goes on and said: “When I read your response to Dr. Tekeda’s open letter to Prof. Christopher Clapham, I felt like as if you have descended from another world with absolutely no knowledge of the Ethiopian history and political terrain. I am also surprised to note that you have already started masquerading yourself as a clean and heroic citizen with the right to pointing fingers at Ethiopian professionals who work for the civil service with or without political allegiance. Then again on a more sober note, I thought of you as a person who have conveniently forgotten your past. You seem to sound hysterically calling for the removal of the current government from power from a “safe distance” harbored in the pretext of “political asylum”. This hysteria is probably for your own consumption and for self-gratification, as you seem to be content with listening to your own voice. It is no secret that Ethiopian history is awash with the history of political violence and you seem to shout hysterically for more of it to come as if you are possessed with some demon. What is the return for the transaction in the tragedy of your own country? Why are you trying to make capital out of the post-election sad events that happened in our country? To me your articles are motivated by sheer hatred and vanity”. Catch this phrase from his collogue who knows him better than we do “ I am also surprised to note that you have already started masquerading yourself as a clean and heroic citizen with the right to pointing fingers at Ethiopian professionals who work for the civil service with or without political allegiance”    .This is exactly what surprised as Mr.Ahmed was surprised to note that Mr.Workie Birie has already in shorter times here in America after his defection, masquerading himself as a clean and heroic citizen. Not only that, but what Mr. Ahmed saying is Workie was EPRDF member while the others were not EPRDF members. You will find his strong membership and the love he had for EPRDF a little later.  Mr. Ahmed asks who is Who is Workiye Birie anyway? “Where did he get the guts to give an ultimatum to the staff of the Ethiopian Foreign Service to quit and defect or face consequences? To harass and abuse an Ethiopian professional for serving the country under this or that government? To engage in character assassination? To tell us that he is a “ hero” and a “savior” but we are the cadres of a ruling party serving under the belly of a tyranny?  Why is he so bitterly pointing fingers at others while what his former colleagues know about him is totally different?  

Fact one: By his own admission he was an employee of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (gallantly defending the same government in Brussels which he so much hates now) until he mysteriously and dramatically changed position. 

Fact Two: The whole Ministry staff knows that he was a member of the EPRDF for more that 11 years. Everyone vividly remembers him singing the EPRDF song in front of the whole staff in one of the Party’s occasions. Some still believe that he was rewarded for that in different ways. 

Fact Three:  He joined the ministry as a first secretary directly (at an older age) unlike most professionals who join immediately after graduation at much lower rank. His first posting was at the Ethiopian Embassy in Brussels as the governments Counsellor to the European Union. He stayed there for about seven years well beyond the normal cycle, which is usually five years.  

Fact Four: When he was transferred back to the capital he came with all duty free goods including a brand new SUV.  He sold everything in the local market. God knows whether tax is paid on them or not when he left the country. As a lawyer he should know that tax evasion is a crime. An independent reader could now judge whether this man benefited from this system beyond his share of privileges.  Obviously he was busy amassing what he can while it was all-convenient, and he had to defect few months after his arrival back home. But all was well until he was called back to base. He was probably spoiled in Europe and could not contemplate life in his own country.  Otherwise, if he is not going to tell us that he has a mental and judgmental problem to solve, how come it took him 12 years to get the “true picture of the government”? 

Dear Workie Birye,  

I believe the grudge started when you were called back while you wanted to stay more in Brussels, and again when you failed the exam for directorship at the ministry while much younger diplomats were successful. I believe the story that after 111/2  years as a member of the EPRDF, you calculated and changed sides thinking that your current bosses will come to power and you will be able to accompany them to the palace disguised as a patriot.  But when this grand cheat plan failed, like all opportunists before you, you now settled with your new bosses of convenience where you can discharge your hate propaganda against your own country’s diplomatic institution with out limits.  I find it difficult to buy your story of   “former diplomats” working with you in such a shameless way. You may have a couple of people working with you, however, I honestly do not think that “former diplomats” per se are actually shareholders of your hate propaganda company and approve of your way of “struggle” to power through insult, harassment and threats against your former colleagues and institution.  

Dear readers, 

Therefore, given his political and professional history at the Ministry and his unfair and undeserved benefits he illegally amassed, how neurotic he must be to tell us that he is a hero, while the rest of us are a bunch of cadres.  He is indeed unprofessional and unethical that he uses information he got in the line of duty (whether that particular information is correct or not) to harass or abuse others. 

Birie,  

You should be the last person to talk about principle. However, the bottom line is, please stop implying that Civil Servants are a kind of traitors. Service to the Ethiopian State will out live your mortal aspiration for shortcut to power, which is doomed from inception to lead our beloved country to disaster. You should also know as an Ethiopian and, if you were a professional diplomat you claim to be, how could you supply defamatory information about your own country and its Foreign Service?If you think that it is O.K. to give information, which you claimed to have come across while on official duty, to the propaganda machinery of the enemies of the country (remember Shaabiya), then it may not stop only as an issue of moral bankruptcy, but you shall have a legal case to resolve.”  Dear Ethiopian brothers and siters and our elderly patriot Ethiopians: Leave the theory of the other Diplomat how he saw his view regarding TPLF/EPRDF aside. But, only concentrate to what he had to say to tell us to know who this Werkie Birie is at this time coming out with a full slandering and defaming campaign agonist the most respected Ethiopians Dr.Taye and Eng.hailu Shwul the very first victim of his own government while he was there building the system as a member of it for 11 & 1/2 (Eleven and Half years long, long years) singing the EPRDF song whom every EPRDF Diplomat remember Wrkie Birie for singing it in front of all of them! Strange? Well, if we are fools continue to be fooled as we were and are now getting fooled by X- Diplomats who were our very first abusers of our leaders and people give them a breathing space here to slander our leaders again twice- well, I am sorry, we deserve it, if we do not challenge and expose each of them and the media elites who are helping them to breath their hate towards our respected leaders, they will continue spoiling the unity and the struggle.

Ethiopia will prevail!

  1. As I read your quotation form Werki Birie, I can deduce that he is still serving for the ruling party-TPLF or else he must be agents of some narrow-minded and ethnically charged political organization quote-unquote their name.
    Basically serving these political organization and TPLF have not any difference in relation to their political stand and the way they look to Ethiopian democratic and unitary forces. That is why they are unleashing hate propaganda and slandering our heroes by using their own media outlet
    Mr Getachew,you have supplied us good facts that assits in knowing of how Workie is morally bankrupted enough.
    By the way, how a man who is proud Ethiopian may join the corrupt regimes of TPLF in the first place, unless the individual himself is corrupted enough. That is why Workie was members of TPLF.
    Finally I appreciate your devotion and determination to our noble cause that is always manifested in exposing anti Ethiopian elements like the corrupt Werki.
    Thank you.

  2. Dear Getachew Reda,

    As always your response is swift and to the point.In fact this time, you catch the thief in the cookie jar, as it is commonly said.
    These charcters amazing style is, they do not shut up or confess their failings/crimes. It is their attempt to cover up worse than their crimes that eventually bury them. Realizing once mistake or even wrong belief and ask forgiveness requires tremendous courage and should be encouraged and be welcomed. Unfortunately, many under estimated or abused this kindly juster.
    Thank you ,Ato Getachew for you vigilant patriotism.

    Ethiopia will prevail!!

  3. Your article is non-sense. Even if Workie worked for EPRDG it is to his credit that he saw his mistakes. That is not to be rediculed but celebrated and commended. Knowing that you are a crude and staunch supporter of the Iyassu Alemayehu aka Hama Tuma click you do not appreciate the courage required to change postions. You think politics is religion.

    However, I do not agree with his romanticized view of AFD and his alleged maligning of all civil servants.

    As to you, Getachew Reda, I suggest the following:

    1. Look at yourself in the mirror. You do not own all the truth or you EPRP click. You, Iyassu and Fassika are not the only people who love Ethiopia. I suggest you apply a rational test for your political oppinions not a religious test.
    2. I suggest you debate issue not individuals. This piece centered on the alleged hipocracy of Workie not the issue he raised – typical EPRP ala Iyassu. Only small minds and EPRPs discuss individuals.
    3. Take some remedial courses in English.
    Good day

  4. I don’t really know when you are going to come into your senses. you went on length to indicate the history of the author but that has nothing to do with what he wrote. If you had really a point to make you should have attacked the ideas he presented in the article rather than his personality. I don’t really care about who he was and who he is, what matters most is what he wrote or said. After reading your non-sense article i have come to conclude that Workie has wrote a very nice article.I don’t need to know who you were and are what I make a judgement is from what you write….So my judgment don’t miss the point in attacking personalities, attack their ideas if you really have a point to score.

    Have fun
    Don’t waste your time by discussing individuals.

  5. I have been reading Getachew’s and Workiye’s articles and/or comments. One humble advice I would like to forward to both is, please stop character assasinations and name-callings of any sort, if you really wish to inform, convince and make postive impacts. We are tired of endless and fruitless insults targeting personalities in the oppostion camp-such futile exercises benefit only and only Woyane and co.

    Best Regards,

    Henok

  6. Bravo, A to Getachew,the reasonless and thoughtless are crying still today as usual, instead of pointing where you made an attack to personality and character assassination.
    After all Workie was member of TPLF and now is slandering for those who deserve honor.hence,this follow is still serving to the purpose of anti Ethiopia interest.
    What must comes by those who complain you is,
    A/they have to show us that, as Workie was not a member of TPLF.
    B/and as currently he is not working with anti Ethiopian elements. If not the sound of empty barrel says a lot other than the empty noises of these individuals.
    Dear Getachew I personnaly, I am fully aware as who these mean guys are.because of thier infantile,imature and animal style responce for your article.if these fellowship thinks and acts as humanbeing they have to disprove your facts what you wrote in red ink.out of this what they are doing is it is purly an acts of animalism.
    please keep on writting against the elements of anti ethiopians and opprtunists.we are at your side what ever costs us in relation these renegades and evil agents.
    long live ethiopia and ethiopianism.

  7. Dear Getachew,

    Don’t pay any attention to those apologists who try to be rational by attacking ur noble cause of exposing the anti-Ethiopian elements . These opportunists & hypocrates must be exposed for who they are by saying to them, ” we know you, you were winng & ding w/wayane too”. The opportunists shouldn’t be given free ride when they attack our Ethiopiawent. Those of us who love our motherland and aspire for a birghter tomorrow for our county, must stand up against these opportunits anywhere/everywhere.

    Getachew ur a true son of our country. Keep on writing. Ur contribution is immensely appreciated.

    Long Live Ethiopia

  8. it s amezing
    ato getachew how long take s u to be mature poltician?
    100 years ?
    when i read ur article i pray to be usefull for once ..but every time i found ma self wrong and ma prayer gose to vain …u ll never change and from now on i wish u ll die like this ….
    plz come to ur sense ..
    oohh God …

  9. Get a life!

  10. Thanks all of you those who liked my views and those who do not like my idea. specially, those of you who do not like my idea or my self; I like to tell you that I like your being my clients regrdless what you said. It is one part that many can learn from you, how the community is so ill informed, some racists, some honect victims and so on. So really is a good stage to meet some of you, it will help us to read your brain.
    Particularly, I liek to tell one of you – you sound like the “hyphenated Fools” what Tadesse (who insisted people to call him “Teddy”) in Hama Tuma’s book “The Case of the Criminal Walk…” in the short story “The Sheratonians”. it s mazing ! PLZ! Why do you want me to die brother “Gaby”?
    Saty tune, that I will post it here or mahder.com for response to one of the commentator, I think deserve response.

  11. To those who distorts what getting life is
    Life is nothing but to live in harmony with values, principles, to be honest and modest and to honor for those who have to be honored.
    Life is not to eat and die or as some people like you assumed to be a line and a pipe of food. That too is done by animal.
    Human being is expected to live life other than eating and have sexual intercouce.human being thinks reasonably and acts consciously.humanbieng stands for justice and freedom.
    Human being lay a foundation for the next coming generation.
    That is the proper definition of to get life.

  12. Ato Getachew ,to be honest I know Workie personally he is not what you are trying to say.All your respond tells me that you are one of those wild animal politician the so called Taye and Shawul.We know them more that we supossed to know.For these,outdated and uselless politician,you stand for them not for the truth.

    why do not go and get Job in the office of the so called shawul’s consultant hope u will be good for that ,but not for politics.U know what politics is not dishonesty ,politics is not cruelity ,politics is not twisting the truth and gaining things to fill your belly.Politics is science like what Biritukan showed us.It is not a dirty game like Shawel and Taye is playing.

  13. `From GETACHEW REDA

    Mr Dawit: you do not get to be mud;
    All you need to do is, tell us the way you know him, if you know him better than his friend. That way, we will buy you or we will discard your presentation in the market of politics.
    We have heard that before. People got upset and defended Mengistu Hailemariam when his victims claimed and expressed what he was, but tried to sell him as angel to the market of politics. It is not new. Even Mengistu himself deny , he killed an ant. Is it news for you if you defended him just as Mengistu’s admirer did. No, so please sell your commodity of idea and let us see it , based on your view we will buy him or discard him; tell us who he is, if you know him. No need to foam, because, the other side too will foam. No usage to be back and forth
    Take care!

  14. Thanks Getachew Reda for your patriotic action to expose persons of double hats to the light of public scrutiny. It is evident that enemies of Ethiopia are fighting tooth and nail knowing that their strategy of smear campain is backfiring.
    I do read Workie Birie’s imbecilic remarks at the usuall anti-Ethiopia elements website. The article is totally blinded by irrationality, prejudice, incongruousness and profound ignorance. I wish such people could spend their precious time in something constructive atleast for their own conscience.
    In fact, if he had reasonable conscience he would have been shutup for a while knowing his recent background. But he seems devoid of common wisdom to comprhend between what is right and wrong. He should have been known first- loads of thesaurus without substance is a yardstick by which he is going to be measured.
    I am so sad on the behavior of such lowlife person who took head-on-collision with mountains of truth.
    Dear Getachew Reda, let me have some lines from Aesop’s fables. “A fisherman went to a river and after spreading his net start beating the water from other side so that the fish will go to the net. But a man standing beside him was disturbed and asked him why he did that, the fisherman answered – I am sorry about this, but it is only by troubling the waters that I can earn my living” he replied. Likewise, Workie Birye and his likes can’t make their living without disturbing and humilating others.
    I think the man is running out of his sense and I am sick to read him saying Hailu “Shawel allied with persons of dubious backgrounds”. For him Dr. Taye is indeed dubious! And former TPLF right hand man is a trustworthy one! There is an Ethiopian saying – JIBB KEMAYAWUQUT HAGER HEDO QOREBET ANTIFULIGNE ALE.
    Dear Getachew, part of our struggle is to bring political prostitutes and mercenaries to the court of public justice. Keep up your great contribution to the Ethiopian people struggle.
    Ethiopia prevail!

  15. This is for the Brown Shirts/Berhanu nega cultists!

    People who live in glass houses better not throw stones at outsiders,for they live in a seemingly nice but fragile world. These defenders of the hypocrite Workie and his cabals,comes out of the wood work complaining about the standard of discourse while their modes operandi is the art of disinformation and outright lies.They attack not only by words but were once upon a time part of a state apparatus whose main aim was/is to employ physical violence against disenters. Even one of the responders in this very forum bragged about his indifference or non-concern the identity of the person only his “ideas”. What a bull…..? These groups common mantra is flowing from the same fountain. They are pretending to be the most “sophsticated”, “Thinker”.”learned” and “accomplished” individuals, by brandishing their BA’S,MA’S & PHD’S .This titles and certificates does not substitue or replace critcal thinking nor does it give one a cart blanch immunity from being questioned and examined whether his/her scholarship fits the quality it deserves. One should not be forced to produce evidence for history is replete with several racist,fascist,IN OUR CASE HODAM individuals this caliber..
    This group of hodams and at times traitors, are regrouping and raising their ugly heads among the pan-Ethiopian movement once again. The hastly organized Kinijit and total repressions of woyne regime against democratic and patriotic Ethiopians opend a political vaccum which was filled rapidly by these shady chartcters. They were organizing under the radar in the cover of “KIL”. Some in the oppostion advised and cautioned the newly formed CUDP to be careful of some formerly known political wolves in sheep clothes. Their advise were not taken seriously out of spite or were duped by thier own political naivtee.
    The new phnomena in Ethiopian political geography is, the inevitable demise of the woyane regime finally being realized by its main foreign sponsors.
    When the state of ship is wrecked and started to sink, the first escapees are the RATS:who were feeding off of the crumps of the sailors.
    As has been done before, the big foreign masters are looking who can be the best “Amercan/Engilh/German.. Idol”. Stay tuned, it is not on Fox TV, it is on Ethiopian body politics.

  16. Dear Getachew
    I read your response what you feel about discussing issues is for you,as you put it,is barking just as a messanger if you think such ideas atleast you have to grow more in most of your body parts, because from your experience in the struggle you told me you know about all the WUSHINFER and just raise your mud smearing in you ideas.

    Still my question is one and only one ” why now ?why not about four oe three months ago?”. It is not about i setting(telling )you when to act but i read between the lines that your outcry is not the analysis given by ato Workiye but what i conclude is that what we say in Amharic “TILKU DEWEL GW GW SIL TINSHUA KTCHIL KCHIL TILALECH “.
    It is one thing to share what problems contributed to the rift of KINIJIT to find the solutions? and this issue was raised for the group in Europe and what the group could not tell us right clarification and a bit drama that they are going hand in hand. But after they finished their tour the person who appeared in the media was the one who answered that particular question.

    What i learn from this and the issues of the rift in Kinijit was a concluded drama before the tour of Europe or America.
    The pertinent issue what we have to discuss it that why not the other group or KIC invited the what you call the splinter group for a discussion to show the Ethiopian people which is going on the right track.
    The other issue is that what is not done by both groups is that they were nor ready to recouncile among them so they do not tried to reconcile the rift outside the country, may be since the chairman is now in America, if he reconciled with himself could also invite both groups to appear on the meetings to be conducted and hear both sides of the story irrespective of his assignment to one part to function after he wrote a letter which curve the function of both groups.

  17. Here is a challenge to Ato Getachew Reda!

    OK! Let’s assume that the charges concocted by Tekeda Alemu (a/k/a Ahmed) against me and those relayed by Getachew are correct. But with all its beauty and novelty, the down side with this kind of cyber ant-war is that readers will be left at a loss. They are equipped with no tool to discern the heck of the chaff out of the seed.

    The dilemma is: I sayed, TPLF officials sayed, and Getachew Reda sayed! Who is to believe here ? Let’s help our readers out in some ways.

    Here is the challenge to Getachew Reda! Let’s request one of the call-in radios to host a mini debate between you and myself. Let you and me introduce ourselves: with a little of bio data, and educational, professional, and even political background. We may also add a brief exchange of views on current affairs to this mini debate.

    Then the radio host can invite their audience for questions, comments, and even testimonies. I am sure there are many Ethiopians living abroad who know something about some aspect of our life. On my part, I know there are many Ethiopians with whom I have worked in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Because, yes I worked in this ministry as a legal expert for ten years. Former colleagues can say for or against me with a special focus on those allegations, if necessary. And the same applies to your holiness Aba Getachew.

    If any one of the charges against me by the EPRDF official (as amplified by you) is found to be correct, then I will apologize in public for committing a crime of misrepresentation against members and supporters of the CUD and against all Ethiopians who have been reading my contributions over the past two years.

    Let me remind readers of these charges:

     That I joined Foreign Ministry at an old age
     That I was employed as First Secretary as a political favor
     That I was a member of the EPRDF for eleven and half years
     That I was known to dance at TPLF festivals.

    “Wodew aisiqu” runs the Amharic saying. It is in deed comic. In anyways, as I promised above, if any of these charges or the characterization of them, I would like to emphasize any, are found to be correct, I deserve more sanction by my compatriots than the character assassination like you seem to be in full gear to perform as a profession. In my part I suggest public apology, perhaps plus forty four lashes as a sanction. I added “lashes” as one possible form of sanction here because I believe that typical savages who engage in character assassination do not understand any other form of civilized methods of correction. By the way these sanctions apply to you as well if the verdict from our compatriots is that you are simply a good-for-nothing….

    I would like to readers to add that I have been hesitating for two days on whether to react or not to Getachew Reda’s cheap wrestling. Judging from his hobby, past time, the language he uses, and from the shallowness his writings display, it did not take me much time to decide that he is not a person who deserve my reacting. Again on a second thought, I realized that I owe readers, Ethiopians, and my CUD brethren some explanation. Although I have no any ambition to hold any public or high profile political office, at least these compatriots invested some part of their time to read my views and comments over the last two years and a need, on their part, to clear or confirm some doubts is a fair game.

    Yes I was a public servant under the EPRDF run civil service. I have never claimed that I am lily white. No one is perfect except God. I mean my God, not Getache Reda’s god or gods. Almost three years ago I started my debute contribution by saying that I had sinned, and sinned with all my colleagues. “Sinned”, just by virtue of serving the regime, no matter we acted as ordinary experts or political appointees. I did that not out of whish to get absolutions from what I did in my past life but to begin my future with a clear conscience.

    I did not write that apology and neither is this letter addressed to Getache because I believe individuals like him are neither genuinely concerned citizens nor matured politicians trying to contribute to a civilized debate, but just a rude brats. We all know that the history of EPRP is a story of a long sad book. But people like Getachew Reda and the flame war forums that he runs is the saddest chapter in the book. Over the last 25 or more years, I do not think they have contributed anything meaningful. Whenever the democratic struggle at home seems to reach a promising stage, Getachew Reda wakes up from a deep sleep and engages in a frantic war of destroying personalities, because he knows that a real democracy in my country means a total loss of natural habitat for him.
    Looking back the tragedy of the KINIJIT split over the last four months, it is amazing the zeal with which Getachew and the likes tried to destroy innocent individuals while showing so little zeal for democracy — which is the real issue at hand—and no substantive contributions to the debate on fundamental issues.
    On a personal note Mr. Getachew, I know some of you guys who claim to represent EPRP are not fighting for democracy but wedging a personal war, a vendetta, left over from some tragic battles somewhere in Assimba 30 years ago. What you are engaged in is a dead-end politics. But again within that group, few individuals like you are suffering not only from dead-end politics but also from some kind of personal mental glitches.
    Other than the brief comments I included here regarding accusations against me, I do not want to attempt to deflect or explain my self on forums like this because I believe this is not the pressing issue my country is facing right now. I want it to be said here that I am going to strive to overcome the temptation to answer back the endless charges against individuals by individuals who pursue character attack as a way of life.

    Workie B.

    Here is the challenge to Getachew Reda! Let’s request one of the call-in radios to host a mini debate between you and myself. Let you and me introduce ourselves: with a little of bio data, and educational, professional, and even political background. We may also add a brief exchange of views on current affairs to this mini debate.

    Then the radio host can invite their audience for questions, comments, and even testimonies. I am sure there are many Ethiopians living abroad who know something about some aspect of our life. On my part, I know there are many Ethiopians with whom I have worked in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Because, yes I worked in this ministry as a legal expert for ten years. Former colleagues can say for or against me with a special focus on those allegations, if necessary. And the same applies to your holiness Aba Getachew.

    If any one of the charges against me by the EPRDF official (as amplified by you) is found to be correct, then I will apologize in public for committing a crime of misrepresentation against members and supporters of the CUD and against all Ethiopians who have been reading my contributions over the past two years.

    Let me remind readers of these charges:

     That I joined Foreign Ministry at an old age
     That I was employed as First Secretary as a political favor
     That I was a member of the EPRDF for eleven and half years
     That I was known to dance at TPLF festivals.

    “Wodew aisiqu” runs the Amharic saying. It is in deed comic. In anyways, as I promised above, if any of these charges or the characterization of them, I would like to emphasize any, are found to be correct, I deserve more sanction by my compatriots than the character assassination like you seem to be in full gear to perform as a profession. In my part I suggest public apology, perhaps plus forty four lashes as a sanction. I added “lashes” as one possible form of sanction here because I believe that typical savages who engage in character assassination do not understand any other form of civilized methods of correction. By the way these sanctions apply to you as well if the verdict from our compatriots is that you are simply a good-for-nothing….

    I would like to readers to add that I have been hesitating for two days on whether to react or not to Getachew Reda’s cheap wrestling. Judging from his hobby, past time, the language he uses, and from the shallowness his writings display, it did not take me much time to decide that he is not a person who deserve my reacting. Again on a second thought, I realized that I owe readers, Ethiopians, and my CUD brethren some explanation. Although I have no any ambition to hold any public or high profile political office, at least these compatriots invested some part of their time to read my views and comments over the last two years and a need, on their part, to clear or confirm some doubts is a fair game.

    Yes I was a public servant under the EPRDF run civil service. I have never claimed that I am lily white. No one is perfect except God. I mean my God, not Getache Reda’s god or gods. Almost three years ago I started my debute contribution by saying that I had sinned, and sinned with all my colleagues. “Sinned”, just by virtue of serving the regime, no matter we acted as ordinary experts or political appointees. I did that not out of whish to get absolutions from what I did in my past life but to begin my future with a clear conscience.

    I did not write that apology and neither is this letter addressed to Getache because I believe individuals like him are neither genuinely concerned citizens nor matured politicians trying to contribute to a civilized debate, but just a rude brats. We all know that the history of EPRP is a story of a long sad book. But people like Getachew Reda and the flame war forums that he runs is the saddest chapter in the book. Over the last 25 or more years, I do not think they have contributed anything meaningful. Whenever the democratic struggle at home seems to reach a promising stage, Getachew Reda wakes up from a deep sleep and engages in a frantic war of destroying personalities, because he knows that a real democracy in my country means a total loss of natural habitat for him.
    Looking back the tragedy of the KINIJIT split over the last four months, it is amazing the zeal with which Getachew and the likes tried to destroy innocent individuals while showing so little zeal for democracy — which is the real issue at hand—and no substantive contributions to the debate on fundamental issues.
    On a personal note Mr. Getachew, I know some of you guys who claim to represent EPRP are not fighting for democracy but wedging a personal war, a vendetta, left over from some tragic battles somewhere in Assimba 30 years ago. What you are engaged in is a dead-end politics. But again within that group, few individuals like you are suffering not only from dead-end politics but also from some kind of personal mental glitches.
    Other than the brief comments I included here regarding accusations against me, I do not want to attempt to deflect or explain my self on forums like this because I believe this is not the pressing issue my country is facing right now. I want it to be said here that I am going to strive to overcome the temptation to answer back the endless charges against individuals by individuals who pursue character attack as a way of life.

  19. From Getachew Reda
    Dear Workiye,
    You said

    “ That I joined Foreign Ministry at an old age
     That I was employed as First Secretary as a political favor
     That I was a member of the EPRDF for eleven and half years
     That I was known to dance at TPLF festivals.

    “Wodew aisiqu” runs the Amharic saying. It is in deed comic. In anyways, as I promised above, if any of these charges or the characterization of them, I would like to emphasize any, are found to be correct, I deserve more sanction by my compatriots than the character assassination like you seem to be in full gear to perform as a profession. In my part I suggest public apology, perhaps plus forty four lashes as a sanction”.

    Lawyer Werkiye Birye:

    No one in his normal sense will whip forty four lashes in this century. You know that and I know that it is impossible in America. Like the Tigringa saying it is “KiyaE”
    As you said, If you are not Werkiye Birye who was to be what you were suppose to be explained by your friends at the time, I didn’t hear you or read your response of all the staffs labeled against you at the time. Therefore, if you are not what was been said on that response form the Diplomat he said he knew you, then, all you should have done was “deny”, as you are denying it now. I didn’t claim I knew you; I brought the article response written to you, as you read me, and that was what I was based on and that is what you get. And if you said just what you said, you were not what was been said’ “You already clear it now, anthill some one or the same person comes back and challenge you, you are free from my hook, since I do not know you”.
    (2- )As far as dealing with me, I have my own way to hook you with my broken English when I need you, be it on radio or internet. So, do not get exited to bit this Fara politician. No hurry, I will be with you as long as you will be in it. Trust me, you will not miss me, I will be with you around and I am always eager to learning from a Geneva Lawyers like you and the Arada politician of our time and the rest of the hooplas with fresh fever. You have been only tow three years old here, just hung on and you either some lawyer like you or some one who is not a lawyer like me will offer you what you are looking for.
    Mr. Lawyer; people out here in America in the wild internet world the LB is not worthy. It is a bad neighbor hood you are in. You are in the Fara politician neighborhood sir! I understand why you chose

    the radio; you wanted to sell your qualification for the “Green Girl” of the coming government. No, I am not going to give you that opportunity now. I will give you when I chose to give you. I do not think you are familiar with the internet world. You have to chill out. If you do not the internet fire will consume you. If you continue the way you are coming fast with your backers, I am sure, the Internet tyrants will consume its foolish victim very fast.
    Your time, your mind. When you see that I will tell you what where you will be in it for a while like me
    Before you clash with the storm learn the system of this fara politica . This is not Geneva, it doesn’t work that way. This is Bill Gate world- Grass Root world! There is time for you and me to debate, “The right time and the right place- that was the art. Like the wise reed which bends to let the flood pass and to rise again, ever present, flexible, unbroken.” , here we are the slogan of all survivals. I hope Mr. Lawyer; you heed and learn this from the Fara politician before you go to the radio. Fara is like a wise Reed, be wise like the wise reed!
    Before I finish my view. How about if you leave EPRP out from my article? What do you know about Assimba 30 years a go? Can you tell me what you have to connect my article with this 30 years back? Were you Meison or something? Even Meison is not an enemy any more with EPRP. Why you think EPRP is after you? YOU SAID :
    Good luck! Please, come back again to the wild internet world where many lawyer gets “consumed” in the “wild fire” of the “internet jungle”, for not knowing how to bend wise like a wise REED! Come back and be guest, if here or next time when you come to teach us with your Arada politica. // My God, not your God, or Godess my Ethiopia not your kind of Ethiopia will prevail!

  20. This was what you said that was cut off from the above page ;
    Workiye Biriye said
    “Mr. Getachew, I know some of you guys who claim to represent EPRP are not fighting for democracy but wedging a personal war, a vendetta, left over from some tragic battles somewhere in Assimba 30 years ago> “

  21. Getachew Reda
    Mr Workiye:
    Yes, you are a sinner as you said it rightly! You are complete idiot!
    You said
    “Getachew Reda wakes up from a deep sleep and engages in a frantic war of destroying personalities, because he knows that a real democracy in my country means a total loss of natural habitat for him”
    Ato Getachew Reda didn’t wake up in the middle of the night and engage in a frantic war to destroy personalities, as you falsely accusing him. He rose up early morning protesting your Boss “Seyoum Mesfin” nine years a go or so in Oakland leading few concerned patriotic community members like him, giving lectures and protests all day long resisting all police barricades and insults from supporters of the regime, the regime, that you were giving your ass working for the same Boss Getachew Reda was protesting with determination bearing all threats and insults and physical alteration. Got it Lawyer Biruye? You looking at your three years service here for the BB group. Assk your Dawit and the rest they will tell you. I am a poor man not a lawyer, I give every single cent I have from what I have when Ethiopians need help because of your system for the last ten years was causing leave their country. I didn’t wake in the middle of the night as you think. I was writing in protest , I was teaching in national papers in Ethiopia when your ass was kissing the system. Taye and Hailu paid their do, while you were accused of exporting SUB to Ethiopia.
    All those nasty idiots talking savage about me, you think are worth, I do not think so, ask them where they were, many of them were kissing the government’s ass for years like you were doing. They will only destroy you, do not heed them, slow down and learn, if you have the LB level mind to learn.

    More to come, My kind of Ethiopia not your kind of Ethiopia will win. Let your God give you mercy for your sin, what ever advice you were advising to the boss I was protesting and to the system Taye and Hailu was protesting and a victim! Stay tune, you will like it Mr. Buriye!

  22. 2-Mr BUriye said

    Why are you lying here to us? If you correctly know what your country is facing, why can’t you go to Ethiopia as Hailu and Taye did and face what your country is facing at this moment, if you think we are not worth? That is why I was telling you, you have no moral ground to cast out Taye or Hailu Shawl simply because, you came out three years from EPRDF /Sheraton entertainment cocktails started to write article posted on the BB websites. If you are a lawyer defending truth, go, roll up every staff you got, get up from the Satellite Dish you had for years and years and take your ass to Addis and be BB’s advisor in case you will be the other Diplomat to take Seyoum Mesfin’s place. Other wise your article is not going to help. It is a wild world out here! Move on to Addis, till then, your talk is a crap, no one out here except the X- officials of EPRDf, mayors, press, and all the x-s who are building up the BB party. When are you going to Addis? Are you afraid? Why? You know them; you work for them, don’t you?
    Stay tune!

  23. 4-

    Well, I know, you were not democrat for at least that ten years doing what ever you were doing wether you were singing EPRDF Antom or what ever you doing. So, when did you learn DEMOCRACY better than EPRP and who thaught you DEMOCRACY?

  24. I am done. I did in segment, becuase the pages are to short to hold the long commnts. Your turn, or your cults turn Mr!
    Thanks!

  25. Dear Workie Birye,
    Peace be with you.
    The good old Ethiopian saying goes as “The more a monkey ascends up a tree it will expose her barren butt”. Your damage control attempt simply miserably failed due to the fact that you choose to clean dirt with dirt.
    In the first place you shouldn’t have been complained so long as you started name calling and disgracing individuals who have great place in the hearts and minds of the Ethiopian people, with proven track record of leadership, consistency, patriotism and high standard of awareness. In my humble opinion, Ethiopian heroes like Hailu Shawel and Dr. Taye Woldesemayat do not deserve such an outrageous denigration by a junior butler of Birhanu Nega called Workie Birye.
    It is useless to snarl and growl after Getachew Reda already pulled out a string from the bag of your accumulated curses. Understandably, he cracked you open and unmask your illicit trading and political fornication in the name of CUD. As you may claim his action is not for nothing.
    It seems you are well versed in the wicked art of sedition and slander from your TPLF schooling. And it is visibly seen in your defamatory remark and supercilious ego, that you pushed the boundaries of your moral ground to a bottomless pit.
    I remember one dude who had been known for his ardent stance as a Woyane-man in an Ethiopian Embassy later to learn him left for US to ask asylum. I have no doubt this guy is a mole transplanted to US under the guise of political asylum. Perhaps, is that wrong to question whether Mr. Workie is another Woyane agent dispatched to the west on covert mission to destabilize the Diaspora resistance?
    True to your colors went as far as parroting your TPLF bosses favorite song “down with EPRP”. If you have gut and scant civility you would have been defending the accusation straight forward, instead of jumping to score bitterness on an organization out of the subject. My advice is someone’s sins can’t help as an excuse to exonerate from your own evils. “Let me take on you but spare me alone” is pure vanity and arrogance. It may be commendable if you humbly ask your contribution for the sake of common good before taking on others.
    Your attempt of cult mind control is nothing but a ghost story, good for inducing an adrenaline high and maintaining a crusade, but irrelevant to reality. The reality is that people who have very real spiritual and emotional attachment to these heroic leaders and EPRP are looking for their continued guidance in pursuit of a democratic and prosperous Ethiopia without paying due attention to a divisive articles that you labored for. With ill-equipped false gospel you made poor decision to expose nothing other than yourself. As an ordinary Ethiopian, who believe in truth and common sense I can’t simply ignore someone shamelessly distorting the reality on the ground. I simply call you morally irresponsible and spiritually ignorant. This time around you have no excuse to point fingers at EPRP, for your information,I am not a member of any political organization.
    I recommend repentance than committing sin after sin.
    Have a good day.

  26. Ato workie,if Ato Getachew is immature enough and infantile as well as ignorant for web democracy and debating (it is not my stand)where is your civility, that refrained you from character assassination?
    Ato Workie I would like to challenge you by living aside your slander for our hero, who really deserves honest honors,
    Ato WORKI some times especially in your case self-hostility is an indication of defeatness.if you assume that Getachew distorts your fact, why you failed to show for us. Did you label us idiot and ignorant as you labeled Getachew? Why do not help us to in showing only the truth?
    MR wWorkie every one is guilty of the good he did not do leave alone to work and be the mouse piece of the ethnic apartheid regime of TPLF.
    Let me ask you the most astonishing parts of your comment? What is the relation Getachew and EPRP? how do YOU deduce or induce the matter with EPRP?
    Ato Werkie,let me tell you honestly what some one who is entirely independent of yours and Getachew issues may conclude if is he chanced enough to see both debate,
    If I the individual accepts that Ato Getachew assassinates worki,he will also understand that Ato Getachew has a reason to arrive in such conclusion, because you are the first person that attack his hero.
    He will say at the same time, but Workie failed to explain why he did. Instead, he tries (you) again to slander Getachew.if the guy who evalutes you and Getachew knows Amharic ,he will sayበእንቅርት ላይ ጆሮ ደግፍ

  27. Workie

    From what you wrote, I could deduce that still you WEYANE guys organised under the KIL group are more devoted to fight those who are firm and determined to remove Woyane. You are part of the weyane investment in the dispora. You always prefer to fight EPRP, Kinijit susssseful leaders such as Hailu Shawel and others such as Dr Taye and praising those against Ethiopia (I remembered your articles advocating AFD an organisation established to dismantle Ethiopia as a country). You are still trying to humilate those fighting weyane since its creation. The EPRP and others who still fight weyane are for principle not for vendetta as your trash article tried to indicate. You were raising you glass while Eritrea was dismembered (while others usch as professor Asrat was firmly opposing in front of you trash bands and the University students were merdered. In fact some of us made a mistake by accepting you guys (Workie, Andargachew, Gebru etc..)assuming you learnt from your past mistakes for serving weyane. But now I could understand it is because you were beyond salvage by weyane and now you are applying for readmission to join your master. You will never be clear of damaging the people struggle and you need to be classified with our enemies -the weyane and sheabia. Every things is more clear now and the days are being counted.

    Ethiopia will previal

  30. Dear Workie,

    I am now convinced after reading your posting that you were and are still serving TPLF, than I were reading Getachew’s article. Your posting (if really that is you) confirmed that getachew’s article regarding you is true. Me as the one who believe in united action of oppostion groups (to be honest I was supporting AFD)considered your articles posted through AV, Ethiomedia, Ethiopian review websites as an effort to strength the struggle, but now exmaning everything back including your posting above, I could safely conclude that you are white liar WOYANE-TPLF installed to make confusion among the diaspora.

  31. Getachew, thank you very much. You forced Workie -for that matter his group to come to an open to confirm that he/they is/are loyal who discredit those struggling to liberate us from the brutal and anti-human (above all anti Orthodox church, anti Amhara and anti Ethiopia) WOYANE, Sheabia and other elements.

  32. In one statement, Workie is none other than loyal TPLF

    Victory for Ethiopian People

  33. From Getachew Reda
    Dear All;
    Thanks,
    What amazed me is not that he should express his opinion. What made me react is when he attacked Taaye and Hailu (as brother Oujilu said it right, my heroes) which is irrational to do it as element like him. The other thing is , he still seemed not to learn. He attacked EPRP to attack me. EPRP couldn’t participate in the country openly, because his x-boss Meles Zenawi scare the hell out of EPRP or hate EPRP (one of it) and refused to allow it to come to Ethiopia and participate in the struggle legally.
    Not only EPRP, but also Aregawi Berhe too was prohibited from coming in. Ethiopia is owned by Meles. And Worjiye Buriye was hired in the service of TPLF getting feel his belly, while Tesegae Debteraw and his friends and GAYim were slaughtered on a day light while the “Sinner” (to use his own word) was living, sleeping deep, rest comfortably no police or torture, intimidation from TPLF; while many of us were threaten, our telephone wringing with threat constantly. Please let others talk about our struggle. This fellow is calling me a rude brat. Hel mercy! Trust me brothers/sister, I could have leaved comfortably like him (or even be his boss as a cadre) if I accepted many invitation from TPLF officials who were all my friends and childhood friends (all his top bosses were my childhood and classmates), I could go now and get a fat check. But , I have no cruel instinct to serve such anti Ethiopia groups. Sad indeed.
    Thanks all

  34. I keep mis-spell his name, my appology. Not purposely, I have difficulaty putting it right.
    Getachew

  35. Final word to Workie,
    It is the characteristic of people who have but a smattering or a veneer of knowledge to try to give the impression that they have much knowledge. Such people generally do too much talk, and too little listening. Remember, that every time you open your mouth in the presence of a person who has an abundance of knowledge, you display to that person your exact stock of knowledge, or your lack of it. Genuine wisdom is usually conspicuous through modesty and silence.

  36. Bravo getachew and ojilu
    the struggle continues!!

  37. While all of us cooperated each other, as we did against the new hired mercenary of kil and TPLF, to name him Workie,we will kneel down our enemies in few times.
    What we must do first is to know our enemies who are fighting openly and clandestinely.
    Birei is the one who is assigned to fight as a man who defects the regime and live a life of asylum. It is a tactic of TPLF to do some members of their foreign staff in order to control the Diasporas. So watch such under cover agents.

  38. Hi Getch

    I was thinking to say somehting in support of Ato Workiye because I know him very well and his courage is second to non.

    But after reading Getachew’s latest I stopped because I didn’t think Getachew is a sene person. Clearly Ato Getachew has a phsychiatric propblem.You must be writting all this garbage from where you are civily or may be criminally interned. If not yet, I appeal to Getachew’s buddies to apply for a court for this guy to be interned as quickly as possible. Because he is clearly a danger to himself as well as others.

    Dr. Taye is smart. He is working for money. He is a great acrobatist. But Getachew, you are Yeibd Gelagay. You are crazy yourself and you try to come in between others.

    I know Workiye is atleast 20 years younger than you. Yet he is way a head of you interms of maturity and clarity of vision.

    Workiye pls don’t play with amanuel derso mels guys like Getachew.

    Meyisaw Girma.

  39. The other face of Weyane covered under the mask of the so called Kinijit International Leadership is successful in diverting the struggle away from TPLF at least in the short run to the extent of attracting some who destroyed their track record of more than 35 years of fighting tyrany -such as Mersha Yosef an ex member of the EPRP. Who are behind this? Time is good we are here to see them who finally spearheaded the ray against Hailu Shawel. Their first taget was the obvious EPRP – UEDF and then division among the Ethiopian unity force by establishing AFD, and then the renown Ethiopians such as Dr Maru, Ambassader Emeru, Dr. Taye etc by intimidating through their current affairs paltalk room and their websites like Ethiopian reveiw, EMF, ethiomedia etc and then the Amhara people through accusation of the AEPO and now Eng. Hailu.

    Workie and his masters Andargachew, Berhanus and by extention Tefera Walwa, seyoum Mesfin, Alamudin etc -all enemies of Ethiopia and her people – are now coming to an open. It is good people like Getachew and Uju exposed these people to expose themselves as Workie did now on this blog.

    Great getachew, Uju and particiapnts of this forum.

    Ethiopia will previal with her detrmined sons and daughters

  40. My Dear Getachew & the rest of my fellow Ethiopians, thank u a million for clearly exposing the bandas and
    the anit- Ethiopian elements. They are using democracy as a cover. Democracy now is an in word for the so called G5 & other renged Kinijit followers. These shameless elements have the gut to insult & defame the Heroic Hailu Shaul & Dr Taye. Both are PROVEN LEADERS who sacrificed for democracy & Ethiopiawenat. Ethiopiawenat means rule of Law, human rights, unity within diversity, peace & prosperity for the people of Ethiopia. Were where the G5 & their followers when Hailu & Taye were sacrificing? The answer is clear as day light. Now from their comfort zone they’r trying to preach democracy. It’s laughable. Eyenyawatu. The game is over!! we are marching forward to make tyrany/dictatorship history.

    Long live Ethipian Unity
    Our Motherland will SHINE!!

  43. Workie, I am waiting for you to response. I already did. I saw your garbage ranting on Mahder.com, It doesn’t make any diffrent you post it there or not. still the same. But, I will post it there too if you wnated it to be there too.

    Getachew Reda

  44. Response to Girma;

    First of all, you can say any thing you want about me. This is because, I could say something about you, but sinsce, you are not open on the air known my face, my picture, my name as I am; I can’t say any thing about you. This is the reason why coward like you comes with singl name, no picture or nothing and is hard for us to talk about you.

    So people with undercover names gets free ride to insult those of known to the public. Let us to me a poor fellow, you even degraded the hero of Ethiopia Taye and counted your two years internet writer Werkiye arrived from TPLF company crowned as “second to none”. I can see how your mind works here. That is I can say. If I say some thing similar a syou said- it is nothing to becuae, I do not know you.

    It is this reason why, I told Werkie , that I do not know you, but your friends responded to you and that was what I based on it, THAT I DID KNEW about him. Here he is ranting too much about EPRP, that has nothing to do with my react to his insult of Taye and Hailu.
    But, I like to tell you this, if you know him tell us what he was doing the last ten years when taye or Hailu were organizing and challanging his TPLF. He refuse to tell us here or in the internet where he posted it (thogh in short he said he sinned), can you please help us what he was doing the last ten years while we were here struggling? Simple question. Can you also post your picture and his picture on the internet so we know who we are talking with? Mine is been many times publishd in Ethiopia and even here. If your man none to nosing is willing I will do that, as well let him do it.
    thanks

  45. Hi Workiye

    Pls pls. This Getachew is not worthy of you. You are too intelligent and too precious for us to go out for a dwell with this crazy illiterate.

  46. From Getachew Reda
    To
    Mr. Girma:

    How long were you been in this net business? Why not the younger lawyer than me let him response to my responses? Why is that you only want to kill me with poison like TPLF and OLF was looking for my last fate to avoid me, noe you are in it looking and promising and threating me to avoid me through dog poison (that is cionide? or your type chosen poison for me by you)?
    I live here in California and I am a Tigrayan Ethiopian. Is that what made you wanted to poison me or that your young lawyer Workiye birie is to weak to res[onse? You do not need to kill me, becuase if ypou kill me, there will be thousand Getachew Reda coming , born again. So by avoiding me, is not going to help my views be stopped. I have seen many threats from so many like you who is hot Doctor asigned to poison people who speaks agagisnt the BB group and some X- Diplomats, press, traders, mayors. Please do not be fool talk to me here, I will be here .
    Your turn. Could you post your photo here? Nothing to scare. A brave man like you do not talk but do. If you are hero and I am a coward, please do bring your photo and see if I look crazy and ready to be poison for you or older than your lawyer youa re talking about. Common Mr.learned, bring your photo up here. aand shut your mouth if you do not and see if you can poison me and kill me. You will a great fever to OLF if you do that.

    Brother Girma , a normal person who claim others are crazy people do not need a mates. Could stated that why you need mates, instead of you coming alone? I thought the BB group members and their supporters were peaceful politicians and supporters, who knew Democracy than any one else (the Far once). Here, they are acting the most vicious violent group ever heard. My friend was threatening like this fellow threatning me to kill me with poison and my fried took it serious and the fellow end up in a sorry history after he took it to his lawer. I hope you are not one of the Loto Visa people and shut your luck shortly. Just brotherly advice. I will not go after a brother like you, but some one will get you if you keep dancing around threatening to poison people. Unless you are in Sawa somehwre boosting the AFD staff, you will be safe, other wise, man, take it easy,. Will you? lawyers //Ethiopia will prevail!

  48. From Getachew RedaMy good freiends
    Beriye and his friends are too angry people and before his mates poisoned me and die, in case if you miss me , just read for rememeberance and logh now. Let us logh till workie and his groups come with some violence thing. I got this joke from Chewata years back published. Enjoy!

    A husband and a wife in their 60′s who had won the DV Visa lottery program and were granted an entry visa to the United States, say that they refuse to travel by airplanes because of “security concerns”. The couple, Kegn Azmach Seleshi Worotaw and Woizero Tayitu Melkeneh, say they intend to ride their horses from Addis Ababa straight to Phoenix, Arizona, where their son resides.

    “They have refused to take any advice from any of us and they are determined to ride the horses all the way to America,” said a frustrated cousin of the couple in an interview with ethiopis.com.

    The couple say they intend to board a large ship to cross the Atlantic once they make it to the tip of the West African coast.

    “Their intended horse ride is going to take them through a lot of African countries and I hope they make it safe in America!” said their son reached in Arizona.
    Asked when he expects them to arrive in Arizona, he replied “January 2034!”

    Kegn Azmach Seleshi Worotaw was confident that he along with his wife will make it to America on their horses.

    “I am not taking chances with airplanes because once you are in the air, you never know if Bin Laden has hidden some mujahadinn right under your seat. We will make it to America! Kes eyalen enehedalen!!”

    According to their plan, they intend to get off the ship in New York harbor, and start riding their horses all the way to Arizona with a help of a mapsco map.

    “Can you imagine them two Ethiopian Cowboys riding on a horse through American towns! I don ‘t think they will make it!” said a close relative who was saddened by their decision.

    Let me tell you in English.
    Getachew may have a difficulty to I identify you.but I know you since we were for many times here in the cyber debate.
    I know you are the one among the missing links I mean who I classify friendship and enemy based on ethnicity.
    You are always behind Getachew when he mentions your ethnic groups.
    You cannot kick yuor westmater leave alone Getachew, stupid.

  51. Yesterday they exterminated our innocent brother, sister, father and mother in Bale,Arusy,Wellega and Harar by using their known wildness mechanism. our elites and the ordinary people live them for the sake of peace if they may learn from their days of intoxication.
    Unfortunately, the disease that caught them is so chronic to be treated.
    They are still defusing hate even when they are living in the civilized world.
    I would like to pass this call for all Ethiopian who love peace and fighting to flourish justice in Ethiopia.
    Ethnic politics is gangrene which cannot be treated unless it is aputated.by knowing this we have to stop any social relationship with those who advocate ethnic politics.
    By the way who is the primary enemy’s of Ethiopia?
    It is those who followed ethnic politics. so stop any body with those basytards.

  52. What I have seen from Worki and his supporter’s side is immaturity and lake of confidence on the issues what they are expected to expound to the readers. Instead they started intimidation which is an act of stupidity as well as a proven conducts of the savage. Actually, as I saw from their model of Workie nothing is expected other than such futile and infantile approach to the matter. The sharpest stupidity is also manifested in intimidation to our proven hero Getachew Reda.
    Infact, nothing is expected from these stupidest other than this.

  53. A question.

    How many Getachews does it take to change a light bulb?

  54. I know many ignorant in my long life starting from peasant to the elite.
    I know many born idiot physically living in the age of digital revolution but do not even the capacity of Stone Age.
    I know many cowards who defect their brothers and friends every now and then.
    I know many human being likes meaning who have two legs and two hands or both physical feature and appearances as human being but in all aspects also less than human being.
    Who is this guy? May I tell you his name and where I saw him?
    1 his name is called Girma.
    2 I saw him in Debteraw blog.

  55. አቶ ግርማ

  56. Please stop such futile discussion in this highly respected blog,Debteraw.
    You know because it is democracy, we saw so many bad peoples who do not know ABC of discipline starting from their birth day to their current age like in our case Girma.
    Such person could not be changed in this dialog as the English adage gose”crooked by nature never made straight by education”
    In such case ignoring ignorant is the best medicine.

  57. The Ethiopian Political Elite:

    The saddest and most depressing feature of our country’s life, at least as seen in our life time remains to be regrettably the political situation, at times much more than the cycle of drought and starvation. The poverty, starvation and degradation could probably have been overcome if we were fortunate enough to find the secret to solve our political problems. At least one generation already lost the opportunity to find that magic formula, and simply vanished. Now, the new generation also seems to be consciously or unconsciously on the verge of losing its great chance, destiny and social contract; the opportunity to shape the future of its beautiful and good old mother land. Partly, if not mainly, the vestiges of the earlier generation should take blame for this sad situation.

    The political situation in our country is solely controlled and maneuvered by the political elites, whose true dreams and aspirations don’t always necessarily coincide with the people’s dreams, wishes, prayers and hopes, and worst of all have no accountability. The lack of willingness or ability, on the part of the political elite, to relate or distinguish political power from the true aspirations of the people, leads to cyclic crisis, violence and betrayal of the people’s trust, wishes and aspirations. Often, the people are used by the elite as a means to climb or cling to power and to perpetuate the crisis in one way or another with intermittent cycles of violence and destructions.

    What is ironic, depressing and somewhat perplexing is that whenever the country seems to get an unprecedented opportunity to perhaps come out once and for all from its chronic problems, the political elite squanders it and dooms the people’s dreams. It fails to wisely catch the moment and the historic opportunities mainly because it is often blinded by the lust for power at any cost, ideological dogma, conceit, arrogance, suspicion, intolerance, internal strife and narrow and self centered goals.

  58. Ato Getachew, You are so vicious, nasty, evil and confused. You better see a psychiatrist before it is too late. You think we don’t know anything about you. I promise an article on a monkey called Getachew Reda. It will be posted on all the respected websites, but not the sick Debteraw. BTW, you are defiling a good name of our hero. Mark my word. Please Debtaraw change your name to Ganenu.

  59. Dear Martha,
    In your dictionary, if one’s unconditional love and persistence for his country is vicious nature – then, let it be.
    And if one is courageous enough to face hypocrites, opportunists and merchants of politics squarely is taken as nasty – then, let it be.
    And if one is standing up to safeguard own countriy’s interest be labeled as evil – then, let it be.
    In my view who actually confused and miserably disgusted is on the public record.
    Let me offer you one lesson from Aesop’s fable. According to ancient lore, every man is born into the world with two bags suspended from his neck – one infront and one behind, and both are full of faults. But the one infront is full of his neighbor’s faults; the one behind, full of his own. Consequently, men are blind of their own faults but never lose sight of their neighbor’s.
    Therefore, instead of jumping on Getachew Reda, you should have been taking some time to reflect on yourself. It seems your haste conspired to alienate you from conscious decision and critical thinking. I can see the bag behind you (full of your own faults) is bringing you down without your notice. A wise man usualy strive to make peace with self rather than intimidating others. Intimidation is the cheapest commodity one can find for free in cyber world. Hence, it is high time for you to ask “What can I contribute something which is not cheap and constructive. Look, most of Debteraw visitors are coming for a constructive dialogue on issues that brought forward by hard working thinkers and scholars like Getachew Reda insearch of truth. Debteraw already offered you a platform for debating and dealing in a civil manner. But you blow that right by offending not only the author of this article but also guests who expected honest discusion.
    I have never come across any article on your name. Then how come you chip away at a man who is a household phenomenon in the subject of Ethiopian body politics?
    I am hoping to see you again in more constructive and honest debate.
    With respect

  60. Getachew
    You said: “How come you chip away at a man (Getachew) who is a household phenomenon in the subject of Ethiopian body politics?” How smart!
    You are laughable and sick to the core..

  61. Marta I am indeed of your photograph to see. Although your Idea is so ugly, may be your face might be beauty full because ሳይደግስ አይጣላም
