VOA and Lidetu: Shame! Shame!

By Yilma Begashaw 

We are angered by the softly softly interview of Lidetu by the VOA on 02/08/06.

The VOA has all the right to talk to anybody as it wishes. However, they are also expected to maintain their journalistic profession when they talk to such destructive, dangerous and hopeless persons such as this man called Lidetu (rather Kihdetu Afyalew, as refereed to by one of Ethiopian political critics).

An article published on Kinijit website of 02 August 2006, under ‘TPLF Mole Lidetu Ayalew Confronted by Ethiopians in Washington DC’,  is concluded with the following remark: ‘In  the long run, Lidetu and his collaborators will not escape justice for the duplicity of Lidetu in the murder of Prof. Asrat and the incarceration of Kinijit’s leaders.  I say this to his followers:  When truth stands in your way, it’s time to change directions’. 

Lidetu is such a person living with crime and shame. The Ethiopian people do not want to hear his voice or see his face. That is why he is living as a fugitive in Ethiopia behind the financial and military protection of Al Amoudin and the Woyane assassin squads.

As the records clearly show, he made the highest contribution to sabotaging the last national election, betraying his own Kinijit Coalition and the imprisonment of the Kinijit true leaders. He planted agents in the Woyane prison cells and concentration camps to spy on Kinijit leaders in favour of his paymasters – the Woyanes. Since he came to political platform following the seizure of power by the Woyanes, he always played destructive roles, polluting, poisoning and sabotaging political groups such as All Amhara…(AAPO), Hibret (UEDF), All Ethiopia …(AEPO) and finally Kinijit (CUD).

After his heavy contribution to sending all those leaders to jails, and affecting the aspirations of our people for democracy, he took a place in the Woyane pseudo parliament. Now he is jumping to the
USA to give a democratic mask to the Woyanes to win a ministerial position. Lidetu has proved to do any thing for the Woyanes and for their masters so long as he fulfils his financial egos and sadism. I was ashamed to hear his gratitude to the Woyane Embassy in the USA for inviting him to dinner. But this would not surprise any one as he always dines with the Woyanes and the Al Amoudis.

The VOA made on of the greatest mistakes by failing to expose this enemy of our people by bombarding him with cross questions.

When asked why he came to the USA, he mentioned that the purpose of his visit does not have any thing to do with the Ethiopian politics as he only came to learn parliamentary systems, fundraising, blah, blah. Towards the end, he mentioned about his meetings with the American officials such as Mr. Yammamoto in whish he claims to have raised political issues, including the release of the CUD leaders. This is a clear bluff. Do you forget when he commented last year that the CUD will not survive beyond one week.

Dear VOAs, I respect and admire most of your programmes. But I think you have failed terribly regarding the choice of this man for the interview and for the tune of the discussion. It rather looks as though it is a face lifting for this rejected and ejected criminal. He will never succeed. The Ethiopian people have already known what kind of dangerous enemy he and his hopeless advisers are and have been trying to forget him completely. He is dead and will be buried together with his Woyane paymasters. Enough is enough!!!!!! Please.

  1. Hi Mr.yelma(YATFA).What a fulish child you are?Why you talk such a shamefule lies, well you may decive others who do not know the truth.If you have concret evidence you can confront him(Lidetu),since discusion is the sign of civilized person if not why you are crying?Do you know why you are crying?You your selfe know the answer so I am not gonna tell you.

    VOA is not such elementary as you.I can read something from your article that is FEAR because you know the truth (`HODSIYAWK DOROMATA`) ANY WAY I DO NOT WANT TO SPEND MY TIME ON YOUR REBISH ARTICLE PLEASE TRY TO BE HONEST NOT POLITICIAN(LIER).GOOD LUCK.

  2. The man who criticized the way VOA interviewed that dull sadist is very interesting and the interesting article is print and circulated across Addis; the one who reacted against this article is purely a blinded supporter of the Ethiopian enemy Woyane, a human being is a creature which created by GOD, all human beings have a common behaviors, such as Loving other people, sympathy and alike but the people on power are not a human being because they don’t have any human behavior like. Seeing there own People begging across Addis’s street, most of them are elderly people /might be one of the mother’s of Agazi warrior / old guys most probably the uncle’s of the zealous supporter of woyane! Unpredictably they even don’t sympathy for these people, so the one who wrote against the article is definitely one of them, please, please, wake up and even help your own poor people rather than following and criticizing every move and every piece of article of the democracy supporter and the people who are working day and night for the freedom of there people against the untamed brute.

  3. I brought home my first short wave radio set (a Pye Intercontinental table model) from the radio shop in Cotterdige, Birmingham, on 20 February 1962 CE, Spaceyear 05: day 140 and the reason I know is that, when I switched on the receiver, in presence of my late parents, the first powerful, audiable station I came across was Voice of America in English covering live the flight of John Glenn (aged 41). He called his Mercury spacecraft Friendship 7. The flight in freefall took 3 hours 44 minutes. He was the first American in orbit (rather than making a ‘sub-orbital lob’. I am so delighted these days (when I watch various 24/7 world-wide TV News channels) to also have CFN, RCI, NPR and, most affectionately regarded of all, dear old VOA to listen to when the pictures get to be too much to take. Most encouraging of all, is to see that listeners are enthusiastically debating the content they hear over VOA Africa Service or whatever. Believe it or not, Europeans such as I long for the day when Africa and Asia are, in every part, successful and at peace. cyquick.wordpress.com

  4. PS please read Cotteridge (NOT Cotterdige)

  5. lidetu ayalew is a saint. the mandela od ethiopia. you who hate him are from the past, the past mainly from the left of the late 60s and 70s. lidetus politics is very advanced. he is the only person who can topple the EPRDF without fire a single bullet. please be patient and follow him or just stay aside.


  6. Supreme Survivor of Scandals, Gash Lidetu, is/was/will doing his mission for what he has been paid for.
    Let’s Leave him down and let’s think what should come next.

  7. Lidetu is a tratior. He lives to fill up his tammy with the money of alamudi and woyane. Let us see how is going to die. I am sure he has a mental problem like Berek Simon for all the bad things he has done.
