In the Case of Total Ignorance, We can Gamble but We Can’t Trust (Response to Bertukan’s Apology to Tigrayans)

By Getachew Reda

The power hunger “Splinter” group of Berhanu Nega’s Kinijit has been galloping to every State until now with an attempt to sell them selves as the viable leadership of Kinijit after distancing themselves from legitimate leader of Kinijit “Eng. Hailu Shawel”.  Judge Bertukan Mediksa a bright, educated young lady seemed to commit bundle of negative decisions perhaps easily manipulated by wrong advisors around her.  .  

Lately, in her Minneapolis tour of speech she made to Ethiopians is the latest surprising for many of us.  Her supporters websites came out with news and headlines explaining that  “Judge Birtukan Mideksa has apologized for the reckless slurs of Kinijit.com/org, which claims to be the official website of the party. She said the website is beyond the control of Kinijit and anything it publishes does not represent Kinijit”. Source “Addis Voice website”. 

According to her speech, while touring the large United States, she and her group is been met and honored by large numbers of different Ethnic Ethiopians but not so much from Tigrayan ethnic group. She came to her conclusion reasoning to why Tigrayans were not seen in greater number in every city she tour was due to the attack of racial slur against Tigrayans made by Kinijit.com/org based in the United States.

So far, she didn’t give any evidence for her accusation on the said website. Even though, myself emailed the website editor to explain me if there is any such sort aired or published or said in the name of their website, if so by who and what was said and when, so far I didn’t get no response to my surprise (may be they are too busy to response in shorter time I demanded).

Having said this, such conclusion of hers to why Tigrayans didn’t came to support in her tour is intentionally misleading and deceptive to gain more acceptance by the intended targets and to disparage her opponents. As anti Tigrayan group. She should know better that leave alone  Tigrayans to her meetings who were been isolated from associating with detribalized community since 1977 (Ethiopian Calendar), even the rest of the Ethiopian communities themselves are been organized associated and tied up with their tribe, ethnic issues which she seemed to encourage “according to some of her fussy speech”.

It is not something new that they never accustomed to. It is naïve of her or her advisors to believe that they will come to her all in a sudden something they never been used or familiar with such call from Pan Ethiopian opposition organization.  Gonder Limat, Tigray Limat, Gurage Limat,, Adere Limat and what have you….. Of hundreds of Bantustan-zed associations had an impact to the fragile to the Pan Ethiopian unity in different forms. Judge Bertukan lives in Ethiopia and she should have known better to why such phenomenon came to this level. Kinijit.org has nothing to do with such fundamental problem of unity as she wanted us to believe as if the fragile came to surface suddenly from the consequence of a reckless slur posted on a single website against a given community.

What was she expecting, from the community that freely and voluntary and happily communicate with Meles Zenawi who enjoyed freely touring Ethiopia in and out anytime they wish to constantly boost the moral of an Eethnocentric visionary and mercenaries who are responsible for uncountable blood on their hand. There is no doubt in my mind that the community that she is talking and apologizing knows that was not the case for their boycott (if such was the case) and should not be the case for discussion. She is talking to a community who is been mislead by connive narrow ethnic elements for the last 16 years in a country where she was serving as a judge. These are Sebhat Nega and Meles boys! Let us not miss the target of the cause!

The people were been told as Dr Fulas once in his writings said  “Our problem is often, that we uncritical and categories that others have developed for their own peculiar situation and /or from their own particular perspective and we let them apply these categories to us as they see fit.  The situation reduces essentially to this: They i.e., some expatriates, tell us there is, for example, a Hausa tribe, Tigray tribe, Gurage tribe, Oromo tribe, Kikuyu, tribe, Amhara tribe, a Tigray, etc, etc, We accept and begin identifying ourselves as such. They later change the label, come, and tell us, “No, you are not a tribe, you are an ethnic group.”We gleefully accept the revision and loudly proclaim to the world, “I am an ethnic group!” Then are told, “No, not an ethnic group. You are a nationality, a nation…” and we begin to ask for self determination>!

She knew better, that Ethiopians were been Balkanized for a long time now.  There are still elements and secessionists harping on the phrase of “self determination” as we speak.  The Hoxa Albania policy of Meles Zenawi is still active and alive in the Diaspora. Knowing all this huge problem which is been there since 1977 that Tigrayans or anyone for that matter didn’t come together when it comes to a national issues and conferences. The fact is we come and smile, hug, discuss in a mood of Pan Ethiopianism together when there is bullet to throw at all of us someone an aggressor from outside against Ethiopia as a whole. Her accusation against Kinijit as an excuse to apologizing Tigrayans is the most obscured I have ever heard .It is unwise, premature propaganda it could be nothing other than to degrade her opponents to look good in front of others. Otherwise, there is no way that Kinijit.or or any individual websites or writings could cause for Tigrayans to avoid showing their support to her group. The problem is beyond the case she is trying to tell us.

Unfounded ground for such claim as the case is misguiding society to why we Ethiopians are not coming together. It is not Kinijit.org, but the entire society each of us who accepted to define who we are as bunch of ethnocentric community and how we should come to gather is responsible for such negative effect and outcome and failure. It is out undeniable nature of our history.  Our priests were been comforting Fascist Italy and individuals while their leader is giving his head to the bullet voluntary to defend his national pride, while certain communities were supporting Mussolini and slaughtered Ethiopian patriots during the darkest age of the colony era. Our history is mainly packed by sorrow and betrayal through out history. It is been ethnocentric mentality that was battling our psych through out. “Few” patriotic nationalist Ethiopians were the only one who fought and defend the integrity of the nation while the large number was a watcher and neutral (ask elders, they will tell you what I am intensively telling you). It is this history of ours who we are and how we come together is now defining our current nature.

It irritates me to hear such bright young lady to downgrade the maturity of the consumers for coming with such testy advertisement and misleading the core cause for our disunity. This distorted and manipulative political advertisement could give an ammunition of excuse to no one, but, for those ethnocentric elements going around dressed up with “self determination” as if they were pushed and aggravated by website but not by their own separatist tendencies. Why her group decided to come out with this bad publicity and communication is beyond believe. Her thoughts to apologize for Tigrayans because of a website is absolutely irresponsible and showed that there seems to be no potential buyer to her group in the future.

She might not aware to how such cheap temporary gain of popularity of acceptance made by her website supporters bringing her comments and her beautiful portraits for the public to see it with a skill full of photographer for consumers to satisfy what they see on her; but, as we knew commercial is essentially materialistic without glorifying the side effect.  The problem might reveal therefore later after the glorification of superficial gains.  Her determination to come public and air such distorted advertisement lacks basic ground.   By her coming with such nonsense conclusion, it wont help them but could prevent the communities to find out their own weakness and blame it on individual website operators.  What an opportunity could get than this sky fall opportunity to use excuse for a community in many ways a victim of his own self who cut off themselves from the detribalized decent others who chose to focus and associate only with their own kind, gathering together, running around like many chickens with their heads cut off? .

Is this the new brand of the Hoxa Meles propaganda policy of blame the NEFTENGA website to the why Tigrayans didn’t showed up to support the splinter Kinijit? Could this be the craft of the Betinachew Tsige and his stooges? Even if the accusation was right, could this be taken seriously as the core reason to aired it as valid ground to why different ethnic groups are not coming together in Pan Ethiopian political gatherings? If as consumers wanted to buy such premature and manipulative advertise as reliable, what could be her excuse for the rests of other ethnic communities that didn’t showed up on her meetings was the cause?

How can we trust her advertisement? Trust is a positive expectation that another will not- through words, actions, or decisions- act opportunistically.  But, in her case she disappointed me and I felt she tried to take advantage of me as a Tigrayan to fool me! There is no openness in her discussion to why Tigrayans failed to come to her meetings beside the specific minor accusation she gave by ignoring to examine the big picture behind it to why we Tigrayans are not united as one in Pan Ethiopian vision and discussions apart being Amhara nation, Tigray Nation, Oromo nation and the rest of minor nation and nationalities and people (I do not know what all those categories meant in social definition and “people” mean different than the ordinary word called People) that we were told to we are that which we are not.

In the case of a total ignorance such as this situation, we can gamble, but we can’t trust. I understand there are few jubilant of hers that received her message with full trust. But in such obvious manipulation, a clever and knowledgeable audience could be capable of correcting an advertisement that may be misleading to a less knowledgeable and less educated group (pardon me not the connive educated groups and websites who are jubilant of her in an exaggerated claims whose judgment is limited to see the effect on the struggle and the unity of the CUD party) by exposing the deceptive mock-ups as she tried to guaranteed where nothing is guaranteed that kinijit.org was the cause for her claim she failed to disclosed the defect or the claim she announce for her apology. To me such cheap attempt is nothing different than the deceptive modern advertising that wanted to fool consumers and audiences with a fraudulent ways of advertising that involve more complex schemes. In the case of such ignorance, I think we can gamble, but we can’t trust! //-/ Ethiopia will prevail!

  1. Getachew, please don;t be discouraged by the lies of Birtukan , a simple tool for Berhanu Nega , who in turn is a simple tool for Woyane especially Berket Simon,
    Morning in Ethiopia is coming soon whether Bertukan says stupid things or not- All the hype about her was highly orchestrated by Woyane to sideline the real heroes of the fight for Ethion Democcay .

    All Ethiopian are now discovering the true colors of the Berhanu- (the second Lidetu) 11 clique, In a week’s time time all the disapra will understand why, The very close relationship beteeen Berhanu and Lidut will be revealed in detail pretty soon
    People like you shoul rise to the occasion to build the New , democtratic Ethiopia, free from pathological liars like Berhanu Nega and Meles zenawi
    Truth is stubborn , it may disppoint but eventuly it will triumph

    Imagine – The Tigary diaspra being isolated by a web site- the same cheap propaganda Woyne uses to entice and scare the great people of Tigray against Ethiopia

  2. Getachew,

    I could not finish reading the piece. It is full of vile and no substance.

    You and your boss Hama Tuma are well versed in name calling but you have nothing to show for it. It does not matter what Birtukan said, you will not support her. You and the EPRP wing that is aligned with Hama Tuma, Fasiha do not grasp the changes in body politic of Ethiopia. You current infatuation with Hailu Shawel is laughable. The only similarity is this group throught Girma w/Giorgis, Hama Tuma’s father in law might have some connection to Hailu and his senior citizen clique.

    As to the offensive material, it is easy to see. I have a number of articles that use the term “Tigre Weyanewoch”. This was a cheap shot that was intentionally used to isolate Tigreans. This is particularly used by Dr. Getachew and his group that calls itself Kinijit Editorial Board. Of course this was a self appointed board unless it was appointed by Pres. Girma, Hama Tuma’s father in law.

    So Getachew why do you follow Kinijit’s politics so close? It is clear you do not like them. In fact why are Iyasu Alemayehu’s communication empire (Debteraw, Ethiolion, Assimba website and paltalk room, Diaspora etc) so obsessed with Kinijit?

    We all know the EPRP is in the midst of a contentious struggle. Why do you not talk or write about it? Unfortunately the hoodlum wing that controls all EPRP resources and is led by none other than Pres. Girma’s son in Law, husband of Genet Girma seems to be in the lead. That aside why do you not discuss your divisions?

    It is clear in a couple of months EPRP will lose some its few critically thinking members. Then it will end up with Getachew, Genet, Hama Tuma, Iyasu Alemayeh (he is two or one?) and a few religious fanatics. The religion being the organization.

    For all political purposes EPRP is no more a political group but a cult that specialized in name calling and lies spearheaded by the chief who has never worked one day: Iyasu Alemayeu.

  3. It is undermining of the Tgreans intelligent as Birtukan saying as why they were not appear to receive her and her groups. Because all Tigreans who reside in in USA knows that her group is not associated with the groups of Kinijit.org.they know that her group is antagonistic to whom she refered.and the Tigreans knows this fact as clear as day light. Their absence in her group reception have may their own reason. It is not as she tries to undermine them.anyway,what she is trying is nothing but to buy cheap popularity.but,it is extremely sorrowful in such trivial manner to try to undermine the Tigreans.

  4. Patriotic Ethiopians Please take note of the following about Berhanu Nega

    – is a crony of berket simon, shares many screte with him
    – had made a deal with Lidetu to betray and chracter assasinate Engineer Hailu- He changed his mind at the last minute-details will come soon
    _ How can a man like him write such a book in a Woyane maximum prison ,without being noticed, can you sneak out all those pages unnoticed, can you write all those pages by hand , on what kind of paper , where??This are the questions that neeed answering as soon as possible. Another big question now is: was the ghost writer of that book Andargachew or Berhane mewa , or did they contract it out to some goodwriter by narration:??

    Please note what Berhanu is trying to do to Eighy- 80 million Plus people of Ethiopia:
    -he is trying to accomadate and share power with Woyane on the shoulders of real Kinjit leaders and the people who paid the ulitmte sacrife for freedom and demcoracy
    – He is trying to create an other propaganda machine and another assualt on Ethiopia with inciting and help of Indian Ocean Newsletter (ION)- fed by Andargachew?? et–, Ethiopan review, Etio Media , EMF- some unwitting accomaplice who have not really comrehended the real situatiion on the ground- I hope they will understand pretty soon what is being done.
    He wants to mak a shortcut to power using news maedia and help of Ameruican Embassy- This- imagine he wants to impose himself on the Ethiopian Peope by Americans and some websites- he doesnt’ care what the people in Ethiopia think. he dosen’t consider doen’t give a damn about the majority of Kinjit council members. he thinks by shouting and high sounding words he will be a polictical leadr??, What a laughing stock in Ethiopia!! , in a country with lions like Engineer Hailu!!! a sneaky mouse like him has no pace any more He will be washe awy with Woyanehis God. The Ethiopin people have spoken and they will speak again, he only hungers for power through the support of some media oultets mistakingsychophant spin masters with the Ethiopian people.

  5. I have read part of your article and there no need to finish it Mr. Reda you and your agnets EPRP are full promoting hatred on Kinijit. You should know one thing, you have never done any thing substantial in your life other than messing up the peace and Unity of Ethiopian people with your articles.

    You have been told so many times that, Kinijit has done accomplished and took the heart of Ethiopian people that your party couldn’t do it in the last 40 years. shame on you and now you are trying to mess up the unity of the party by holding Eng. hailu hostage. But you will see, it won’t happen. Kinijit will blossom and go from strength to strength.

  6. Getachew
    please understand that Berhanu and Co , have a lot of budget for propaganda, like woyane, employing full time spin masters on the internt, Like his master the Woyane , Berhanue is becoming a pthological liar, a sellout, divorced from the Ethiopain reality, made for TV and American audience, we tell him he doen’t belong to Ethiopia , let him spin in DC and NY LA etc, where he really belongs

  7. This is a response for SiLESHI
    If the article of Getachew embodied substantiated matters is gobbledygook, why you vomited out your nonsense in response him.
    Is it non sense to deal about, when a large number of people intelligent undermine by bunches of irresponsible so as to get cheap popularity?
    Is it nonsense to forward a response when an irresponsible person tries to create incitements of violence?
    You see it is not a new phenomena someone to write for his tip payer like you.
    But it is not in such manner which is less than the thoughts of ordinary humanbeing.

  8. For those which are trying to associate the writer (Getachew ) as EPRP clique I want to ask you simple question,how many of EPRP members, claimants are working with the x-judge bitukan group, or is it because they have betrayed and exposed their comrades at the time of the fight against the military Junta, or is it for siding with TPLF during the time EPRP was forced from assimba. About the brutality TPLF used I wish and leave for those which managed to escape alive to speak it out. How many times is your Birhanu betraying his friends just to get to power and sell Ethiopia. for your knowledge i have no affiliation with EPRP past or present.

  9. You’re still not convinced???
    The whole African command is to working to disintegrate Kinijit in all capacity. Once it has been said that BBs committed coup d etat and are agents of ECIA what do you expect from such group? Getachew are n’t you convinced? After almost five weeks Brhanu told on VOA he is an agent of TPLF and like Lidetu!(Melkina Amel Eyadere…) Now he is visiting a psychiatry hospital for mental problem due to the crime he committed on May 2005 (Astekuash).

    Similarly Birtukuan speech is an extension of the BB act.Had not professor Mesfin intervened TPLF brewed to trap Hailu by Seye et al or UEDF to accept Ethnic federalism. Ethnic federalism is racism and capitalizing on our deference’s.If Ethiopia agrees to fallow this path, there is no need going long with TPLF. As an Oromo, I prefer to join with Kenya even eventually with Somalia Dijoubouti than exploited by the tyrant cheaters TPLF. The TPLF people with out any resource are milking the resource of the country more than ever.
    When does a thief become a general, only under TPLF. On 21 October, Seye who was hibernating and was released for tactical reason preferred Ethnic federalism, TPLF Leadership Split over Ideology (Gambling Narrow nationalism versus Puppet government)
    The Split in the top leadership of the (TPLF) became official (March 22, 2001) as the
    Twelve of the central committee members, who reportedly belong to the “dissenting group”, were Tewolde Woldemariam, Siye Abraha, Abay Tsehaye, Gebru Asrat, Alemseged Gebreamlak, Aregash Adane, Awalom Woldu, Gebremeskal Hailu, Hasen Shifa, Solomon Tesfay, Abraha Kahsay and Belay Bitew. Where are this guys ? working behind the screen
    The spit was 50% and the chairman Meless has to cast a vote under negotiator. Once it was agreed, those who stay in power start making propagandas against the defeated as if the split was genuine!! It was tactical 1)To reduce the tension of narrow nationalism 2)In case Meless fails the second group could negotiate.
    Unlike the politics of the 70ies Ethiopian politics is becoming more complex. Each step needs a careful move.
    In recent days the move is differentiating a wolf and sheep can not live together. We should worry first the unity of the country not the unity of CUD.

  10. Fellow Ethiopian , areminder to all wholove their country
    Time will tell about what levl of crime Berhanu and his handlers are doing to Ethiopia, But before that happens be aware , be very very aware of a dangerous misiion by a dangerous man who has two powerful masters- CIA and Woyane
    He is now at liberty and with lots of money to buy websites, and media people ,
    The glorious Kinjt party- he is trying to give it as a present to WOyane
    He is a man who doesn;t know Ethiops or ethiopians, he simply believes by inciting media outlets like Indian Ocean Newsletter (ION) he can scare Ethiopians!!! ha , Ha , ha, he is currently a laughing stock in Ethiopia, our coutry, he wants to destablisz Kinjit and by extension tom help the historicla enemise of our country to disintegrte it, — Eventaully the truth will emerge . bu currently he is hoodmining web site lik Ethiopian Review,Ethio Media.

  11. You guys, do not know still the difference between Meles and Siye?
    I am extremely sorry that there are peoples who considered the groups of Gebru who are popularized by ethiomedia as the opponents of Mels.
    Shame on you!!!in the first place, they did not quarrel each other on the interests of Ethiopian people. They made a quarrel with ER positive how to exploit Ethiopian resource. the ERpositive were interested to exploit the Ethiopian natural resource equally with eritrian.but the groups of Siye were dedicated and devoted to exploit Ethiopian independently.
    This was the core points of their quarrel.
    Let me ask you a simple but measuring point about the groups of Siye.
    If they were genuine and have not vested interest on Ethiopian politics, they would have told us about the conditions of Poet Tsegay Debteraw and his comrades, but they do not want, because they have taken the measure equally with Meles what ever the measure is.
    That is why they preferred to keep quite.trrust me, they are the first people who must be asked in relation Tsegay and his comrades..

  12. Getachew Reda,

    Your article is simply EPRP is Dead! Long Live EPRP! Bertukan is by far better than most of the EPRP vagabonds in the Diaspora. What do you write about Kinijit? Why do not your write about the defunct EPRP? Maferia Neh!

  13. All of you who are you are saying a lot about EPRP, as your talking if EPRP is non existent why you worry?
    Is a dead body affects the living? Please in this discussion forum we need to debate only with the real human beings. Some of you who commented about EPRP is impossible to take you in to consideration as a human being except a living dead.

  14. You are an ass!!!! I will never login in your web site.
    Just SHUT YOUR ASS!!!!

  15. Mr. Addis please try to expound why you arrived in such conclusion.
    You may be offended by an individual comments but it does not mean that the individual is the team of Debtera.Halo are you watching me?
    Yes, please try to explain yourself even by assisting yourself by translator of ideas.

  16. I was expecting Getachew Reda to talk some sense-Alas!! I was dead wrong!!

    Henok

  17. i hate our website. it is full of shit. you guys pull ethiopia from going forward. glad u r not part of kinijit

  18. YeAllah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    EPRP, may I ask you one simple question?
    Can you give me one single fact when Berhanu Nega hides what he is doing? Wether it wrong or right he always talks about things openly and with great confidence. That is what you wanted to kill now, that was the kind of people you had been assasinating in the mid 1970s in Addis and all over the nation. You are just mad killers, not politicians. Period.

  19. meant to say i hate your website

  20. I am so dismayed by the vulgarity of some individuals. I wonder their upbringing. Ethiopian parents in gerneral instill in their kids/childern to be polite/respectful to others at the sametime to be prudent. Where did this Tsadabewuch came from? What is in their brain? If they oppose someone’s idea/opinion, they should so in a civilized manner. It’s clear that their mission is to destroy Kinijit which is of course impossible. That said, under the courgeous & farsighted leadership of Eng. Hailu, Kinijit is moving forward to bring a brighter tomorrow for our beloved Ethiopia & its people.We will bury tribal politics for EVER FROM ETHIOPIA. ON IT’S GRAVE WE WILL BUILD A UNITED ETHIOPIA WHERE PEACE, DEMOCRACY, RULE OF LAW, HUMAN RIGHTS & DEVELOPMENT REIGN.

    DOWN W/TRIBAL POLITICS
    LONG LIVE ETHIOPIAN UNITY
    OUR MOTHERLAND WILL SHINE

  21. Democracy in a Prison Setting:
    In the Garden of Eden Satan was using the FORM of a snake for his purposes, the snake tempted Eve to eat the fruit .God cursed him and commanded him to crawl on his belly . Brhanu tempted Shawel to sign pardon. This is what is agreed in prison we call it ADEMOCRACY.

  22. It amazes me why you guys do not talk about the EPRP split? Why so much vile for Kinijit? For Birtukan? For Birhanu?
    I think you are hopping with the demise of Kinijit EPRP will inherit the spoils. Wrong again!!

    Ethiopian do not accept secretive organizations such as EPRP or TPLF. I do not remember the last time you had a meeting and solicited comments from the public. when was the last time you had an election? I suspect before the TPLF?

    Most of you beleive your own lies. Such is the case about Birhanu being an agent of Berket, Meles etc. I know you are going to tell me ION. But ION is Iyasu’s project. Yes, Iyasu, aka Hama Tuma. The EPRP leader since he highjacked a cargo plane.

    He discouse is insults and namecalling. I guess with his father in-law elected for a second six year term I can understand that he wants to sabotage Kinijit.

    But his hate peddlers, I do not understand. They have stoped thinking. When he says jump, they ask how high?
    When he demands they shout, they scream. What a shame. It remids me of the commercial, ” a mind is a terrible thing to waste?”

    I understand EPRP is having a congress in the next couple of months. We already know the winners and the losers. The reasonable group will lose and the distructvie wing of EPRP will win. It controls all the money.

  23. please Getachew live her alone.Is it Ferenjigna? Hey,the people of Ferenji, mind your besinuss let her stand and lead for all Ethiopians interest not for Ferenjoch.If they Ferenjoch join her she is definitly has more than enough intelegent to lead them too.

  24. This EpRp website might not post this view:
    Ato getachew:
    I remember when you are orchestrating Tigrian nationalism a couple years ago. You were raising issues that Amhara nationalist are dominating EEDN and Tigrains can afford to be a minority any more. That is fine with me but how did you get involved the same people you were accusing years ago. Remember professor Habte, Dr. Selameab and so on? This EpRp strategy which will help a dead organization.

  25. Your website is useless!!!!

  26. Dear Prof? Getachew,

    Please try to think as one genuine Ethiopian instead of taking side to one group which is hated by most Ethiopians and lost it support. By the way I am not member of any political party, and I have respect to Eng. Hailu Shawil for what he has done until now. But now it is over as he decided to be dictator and anti- Kinjit. He is the one who flame the difference instead of accepting his mistake. Coming to the main point about Ms. Birtukan’s comment, what is wrong with it? It is the groups around, the Kinjit website which is under the control of EPRP is spreading anti-Kinjit and and Anti-Tigrians. To be honest, it is the talk of individuals like Bidru Adem in April 2005 Meskel Square public gathering offended may tigrians by saying “Tigrewochin wode metubet enimelisachewlen” = “ Tigre wode mekele, eka wode Keble”. Just because of his speech I know that many Tigrians including my friends who were supporting Kinjit became against it. Still Bedru Abem and the like continued to damage Kinjit. But it is true that there are some trigirians who are working for woyane but not all. Not only Tigres, there are individuals working for EPRDF from all ethinic group who have astong economic and power advantage.
    Concerning Dr.Birhanu Nega, please leave him, let he work for his country. Whether you believe or not tt is Dr. Birhnue and his group who brought a big move in Ethiopian politics, the other guys including Eng. Hialu Shawel and the so called Lidetu (at one time) were there for several years without any significant influence on EPRDF.

  27. Dear witer,

    I am sorry to say, but I have to say that your comment is full of frastration and self-confidence crisis. It is absolutely sad to waste your time in doing such “ZEBAZENKE”

  28. Hello Guys,

    I think the ethiopian people identified an open minded leader who understands the real situation of ethiopia. For those of you who have simply been backbiting for wrong reason, I would like you to look back to the kind of politics currently underway in the country.

    Please stop your wrong work in the websites. Try to get together to win the Woyane gangs rather than fighting with each other.

    Bukai

  29. Remember getachew, don’t be surpried by the hate mail from the berhanu clique, they are fully funded and organize, eventually truth will prevail, so be pataient, the majority of kinjit keadership will decide pretty soon on the dangourous mission of berhanu and his woyanre tugs
    please see one postimg above preteinig to suppotrt Kinjit but he cannot hide his “WOYnananet” by saying the fabricated charge of Tirge wode Mekele”, remember how Woyne was saying the same thing and interhawme etc, Berhanu agents ,( actually Woyne infrstructre and machinery is being utilized right now to destabilize Kinjit,) are accusing kinjt of bieng against Tigrayans, the same old story of persons who failed miserably with the Ethiopian people to sneak using lies , more lies and lies , like thier createor Woyane.
    One thing is clear:The Ethiopin people will certainly make posituve progress in the right direction , in spite of Berhanu and Lidetu trying to block this progress. towards democracy , freedom and tolerance, among the peopels of Ethiopia.
    one thing required is wise , honest and truthful and dedicated leadership and the strong spirit of popular resistance and unity aginst tryrants, and their bogymen.
    Remember it was the “lion of Ethiopia- Hailu Shawel who was the ROCK who stood all the way, unwaveranigly, against all the machinations of Woyane, a courageous man who dared treaded where others tremble and succumb—. His epic fight against Woyane makes him a legend in his own life time , in spite of the combined assualt on him by woyane, CIA, paid journalist, and the berahanu – Lidetua group, he has bebn unwavering in the pursdiut of the truth and freedom for his countryand peopldn th against ts woune, still singulary villified by Woyane day in and day out, but he is a solid rocjk , firm in his convictins that Ethiopa needs a brighter future
    imagine what would have happend to Kinjit if Berhanu had his way, he would be like Dr, beyne Petros or worse s, perhaps colluding with Berket simon, to arrest the progress of democracy in our country

    Ultimately we have to realize that the remarkable gains by Kinjit in the last couple of years are irreversable, whether Berhanu and Lidtu want to trample on it or not.

    KINJIT IS THE WAY
    ETHIOPIA FOREVER

  30. This is FOR RENAGADE(bANDA,KEHADI} AMHA:

    Amha,you must be one of those who betrayed your friends before and now ready to serve for the highest bidder. Your ad nauseum attack on EPRP is a clear manfestation of guilt-ridden psycopath who is a dead man walking. You and fellows like you infiltrated Kinjit masqurading as “genuine supporters” and now your miscalculation back fired, you have to find a scapegoat as your former boss Fuhrer Mengistu. You wished all your miserable life for EPRP TO DISAPEAR. iT WILL NEVER HAPPPEN, AS LONG AS THE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE ARE FREE FROM DESPOTIC RULERS AND WANNABE SUCCESORS. EPRP WILL HAVE ITS DAY TO BE JUDJED INFORNT OF THE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE GAINST ITS ACCUSERS LIKE YOU AND WAR CRIMNALS AND CAPTAINS OF RED TERROR CAMPAIGNS. I AM QUITE SURE YOU AND YOUR FELLW TRAVLLERS DO NOT WANT THAT DAY TO COME. BUT UNFORTUNATLEY NO FORCE CAN STOP IT FROM EVER HAPPENING. THE DAY OF RECKONING IS APPROCHING.

  31. Germame you have said it very well, Woyane is scared of EPRP , they know how mcuh grassroots support it has in Ethiopia, Otherwise the Berhanu Propaganda machine would not open such a massive camapaing and media front against EPRP at this time. As you can even see how they want to invade even this web site, the are engaged 24 hours a day in manufacture of hate and propaganda against the choice of the Ethiopain people
    The Berhanu clique has this nightmare of KINJIT- HIBRET coming to power in Ethiopia throuigh the ballot box, which will be a reality some time in the future
    Alas You can’t keep the future from happening!!
    Democracy will prevail in Ethiopia!!!

  32. this is a responce for those who blame EPRP
    there is no any anti ethiopian element muscel that is untouch the back and heads of EPRP.
    kEJIBI,CIA,the AREB world,inside also the dead military junta,TPLF and all of banda who were engaged in attaking of EPRP mutualy as well as indpendently.the most astonishing parts of the story for geniune ethiopian is the existance of EPRP by surmounting and even for some of them by defeating.the attaking tragedy is still on contiunation from knowing this strong parts of EPRP.I am quite sure as most of you labeled me as a member of EPRP.trust me i am not.but i could not denied this fact even which is recognized by its enemy.
    Kinijit it is a three years old party,who have nosiginificant couragous leaders except Engineer Hailu and some others.it is a party who is filled by renageds and vulnarable by simple fist.what gave the strength of Kinijit is the hatred of ethiopian toward TPLF.
    out of this, kinijit is not organizationally strong exccept engineer Hailus organization MEAD.
    ethiopian all of us who need our freedom please give a proper respect for EPRP.its leaders have untaped leadership potential.infact our enemys know very well this fact.that is why they are unleash huge propaganda force against them.

  33. germame aging thank you , berhanu andco are scared ofa powerful alliance f Kinjit, HIBRET and EPRP, the geniue sons and duthes of ethiopia , who acn stand any and all adversaries, Everyone , including Bands Berhanu and Lidetu knows this as a fact.

  34. This is typical of EPRP when you see somebody is getting one step ahead of you, you lose your mind and become like a mad dog that bites any creature moving round it! you are what you are and that is the way it will remain.Sorry to that but it is true.

  36. why are you talking about dr Birehanu now? just because he left EPRP long time ago and joined EPRDF and then KINIJIT. he is just a good person changing himself from bad party to a good one. he is still on the process of changing and try others change. let him finish and give him some time. I donot think he will look back to be destructed from his mission. leave him alone. go forward with your own best way for the development of ethiopia and the ethiopian people.

  37. Those who are trying to defended Berhanu Nega/the rest of his group clearly show who theyr’e. Either they are paid wayne agents/and or Lawodachew yaderu. It’s open secret Berhanu has been wining & dining w/woyane for the last 16 yrs. He NEVER raised any protest when the Wayne murdered/imprisoned thousands of innocent Ethiopaians before Kinijit. In fact he came rushing from US to take a teaching post when Zeawi summarily expelled 42 university professors. Can anyone give testimony he was fighting for democrcy before the election of 2005? It was the courageous Eng.Hailu & his unwavering stand against the tribalist Zenawi regime and the HEROIC ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE that brought the victory of 2005 election. LISTEN UP those who are Berhanu’s followers, leadership requires courage,perseverance, integrity & Vision which one can see in Eng. Hailu. HE IS A PROVEN LEADER. GET OVER IT. Berahanu & his entourage came for the party- to ripe what others harvest. To be a leader one has to earn it. In the final analysis the truth shall prevail & the Ethiopian people will be free from the Wayne.

    Long Live Ethiopian Unity
    Ethiopia Will SHINE FOR EVER

  38. I kmow i am to late to comment on this topic, I have a question for the so called birtukan that one time i admire her a lot. My question is how do you know how many of the tatal audiance were tigrean from any one of your meeting? I think you were calling Ethiopian not Amhara or Tigre or any tribe. Is your ethinic back ground may pull you behind when you reach in Minesota or what? you better stand for Ethiopia as a whole. let me say one thing when i see all this divission i do thank my god that CUD didn’t take power. If they did how can they lead the country. only god knows do you know our saying that “IBABE YELEBUN AITO IGIR NESAW.” Every body gods time is not yet for Ethiopia, you see what the orange is it became “Comtate” what a fast change so Ethiopian we have to oppen our eyes i think this are not the people to leberate Ethiopian “Keterabe jib Yetegebw yishalenal. let god think Ethiopia and

    God bless Ethiopia.

  39. I read the comments. They remind me of one important saying: AHIYAWUN FERTO DAWULAWUN! Why should EPRP sabotage Kinijit, if Kinijit is so invincible and so loved by the people of Ethiopia? Why speed to blaming the EPRP for every mistake Kinijit makes. I am no apologist for the EPRP and I am in no mood to reward losers who ally themselves with the designs of their American sponsors. Ethiopia will cast off its sellout politicians, all, including those pimping in the diaspora in the name of liberating Ethiopia. You cannot tap dance with the EPRDF and tell us we are for you! Ethiopians cannot be fooled by these one-eyed pliticians–who can only see the DOLLARS!!

  40. Interviews with Ethiopian Leaders: Inside out,
    There are two types of leaders in this world, and each act with two separate agendas.
    Good leaders are people who are willing to sacrifice their careers for the sake of the people they serve.
    Bad leaders are willing to sacrifice the people for the sake of their careers.
    By determining early on which category a person falls into is the best way for you to determine whether a person will listen to you, or will manipulate you.
    For the last one month or we had interviews, discourses and discussions, what ever the case, apparently most of our leaders including. Their main problems observed of the interviewee are they are not good listeners
    1) Fast to defend and talk about even a slight mistake of grammar
    2) Losing the objective of leadership, decide fate of people rather than listen their cry
    3) They are self defensive
    4) Express personal opinions rather than the peoples opinion
    5) Talking their own agenda rather than the peoples agenda
    6) Bias or stereotyping
    7) Boasting about self esteem on media
    8) Lip service and saving face value
    9) Never ask question but always ready to answer
    10) Informative no stand or problem solving speeches
    .A wise leader might say, “Listen to everyone, then make decisions that are best for the group. The key to leading people is to reach them and, believe it or not, the key to reaching them is to listen. The leader that does not listen is only a leader due to resources and not character, and thus is not truly a leader at all. The old debate axiom is, “He who does not know his opponents arguments does not know his own.” Take this to heart.
    A good leader knows when to admit he is wrong. That is why most politicians are puppets instead of real leaders, they always choose image over improvement.
    The bible says what makes the best leader… when the Disciples asked Jesus which of US is the greatest and will sit at your right hand in heaven, Jesus replied, “The one who is the least among you, will be the greatest.”
    By this, He meant that to lead is to serve and you cannot serve if you don’t listen completely to the desires and questions of those who you represent. The best leaders neither assume, nor do they treat others with disdain for their point of view. Of course not all advice or information is of use, but a leader will make even those individuals feel a part of the team, and in turn mentor them when their ideas and suggestions are not in line with the goals of the organization.
    Sometimes a leader has to decide that some interviews are not good for the whole of the organization and treat them accordingly… and this is a trait of good listening also since bad information that wastes time and resources is part of a leaders decision making process.
    Leaders must attempt to understand the viewpoints of those providing the feedback before they make a judgment. If the feedback is valuable, it is critical they should abandon their own behaviors accordingly.
    A good leader will ask follow up questions to drill down to the core of the issue. Then they begin the process of problem solving. However, a truly great leader will ask questions which lead the other person into discovering their own solutions to the issue. Sometimes this isn’t possible, but when it is, the results are empowering

  41. Getachew Every body is subject to criticisem by individual or party. Make suure the subjec is properly delt not the person is EPRp….
    OR when she or he speakes must include some clause that says to thiopians excluding…………
    accept also tomorrow when weyane or melese tells you to mind your business

  42. EPRP is the only organization who fought against criminal brutal Mengistu, anti ETHIOPIA blood turisty narrow Tplf, and anti ETHIOPIA sadist Essayas. If it had been for EPRP our country and our PEOPLE will not have been in this mess. Still, EPRP is the only organization who will free ETHIOPIA and ETHIOPIANS.
    LONG LIVE ETHIOPIA|||
    LONG LIVE EPRP|||

  43. The writer has been perceptive in identifying/interpreting Ms. Birtukan speech. Albeit, they did not resolve they were expected to resolve under Eng. Hailu’s leadership. Instead they rushed ahead and were greeted by Berhanu Mewa- Andargachew Tisge faction.
    Not only did they fail to accomplish one of their major objectives, they made several mistatements, one of them is shown in the article above of an incinsere appology by falsely puting the blame on the website.
    This, is one of the many blunders the vice chairwoman and Dr.Berhanu made that revealed their thought process and hidden agenda. It is in a sense good they came ahead of the their leader and runoff from city to city and made all these public speeches, defending their actions. Otherwise how else would a dicerning public both abroad and in Ethiopia would know, and some individuals confirm their current position with evidence as well as their background and experience.

    Ethiopians are looking /should be looking outside their ethnicty to save this country from falling apart and to gain their individual freedom to speak, to protest peacefully, to publish,to move freely,to reside anywhere and most importantly to gain their freedom from the totalitarian regime, by calling for a referendum on the current regime, under the auspices of the UN, and International observers. Anything else is window dressing, except HR 2003.

  44. The time for unmasking Berhanu Nega is now, Actully his actions are reveling to us his true nature, we have to thank him for that.
    He wants to gain acceptance and alos political; power from Woyane by sacrifcing the original objectives of Kinijt

  45. Will Kinijit win Survival of the fittest?

    Voters are becoming more demanding of their elected representatives, and that puts pressure on parties to adjust their policies the public will. Those that don’t will fail.

    The last two years has been a moment of hottest debate in Ethiopian politics. If we have good leaders it is time to capitalize on the formation of the nucleus of the structure of the Ethiopian government. Be it Ethnic or National government. It has been noticed that briefly there are tendencies of the Left wing, the right wing and the Center. The green party although negligible but could be important in the future. It has been also observed there is a total ignorance and lack of experience on how these parties interact. There is also lack on how to compete and governing policy of the parties, it does not mean that the center should rule always as it is a meddler. All the three structures are important for the very survival of Ethiopia. The question who to rule depends both on the domestic regional and international arena. And the parties should present their realistic views to the public. Not a theoretical attractive view. He who speaks or writes better should not be considered as the best. May 2005 the Ethiopian people have said no to the ruling party. If there was a new government would things have gone as we were told during the election campaign as promised. In Ethiopia power has been prestige and source of economic satisfaction of rulers. Should the parties struggle for power or lead the 70 million people?

    What we the public want from the parties is that to remove our :-
    Agony, Anarchy, Burial, Crime, Cry, Deception, Death, Detention, Deterioration, Disintegration, Displacement, Dispute, Davison, Divorce, Evil, Failure, Fear. Hate, Helplessness, Hunger, Ignorance, Illness, Inequality, Inferiority, Inimicality, Killing, Loneliness Misunderstanding, Negativity. Orphaned, Pain Poverty, Punishment, Famine, Retardation, Rivalry, Slavery, Theft, Submissive, Torture, Up rise, War, Weakness … People do not trust EPRDF .Of course certainly EPRDF is not our savior as the above list is aggravating through manipulation, spying, bribing, misleading, wrong advising, intervening directly or indirectly into other parties affair derived through power thirst leaders the desire to rule. The current division of CUD is results of such evil doing.

    The CUD Pilgrimage to America is near concluding. The CUD main dogmas are one country and one people, still there is determination among Ethiopians at large. And diaspora hence apparently fit to survive. But the credibility of some of the leaders is declining unfit may be they dropout or ready for replacement? Cleavage will damage not only the very survival of CUD but the country

    Above all if we are going to win and continue as one country we need loyalty of the parties, their members and leaders. One has to swear to loyalty of the Ethiopian flag without loyalty there is no trust. We need true Ethiopians. We do not need CIA, KJB,…and Eritreans.

  46. Who are the handlers of Berhanu
    -CIA
    Woyane
    ALamoudin and
    his greed for money and polituical power at the expense and death of the poverty strikn and poepl who have been brutlized by two monstrous dicattaors in the past near 40 years
    How did berhanu get to where he is now – through the active manupulation of the American emabssy, Woyanne, especially berket simon and Andargache Tsige- the man fro Woyane jungle days whao hsas the msiion of destroing Kinjit right now

  47. From GETACHEW REDDA

    To the Dear brother who was talking about EEDN.-

    I have tow things to say.

    1-One is for you
    And
    2-the other is for those TPLF fig leafs.

    So, my intention is to boost the discussion among the opportunists, fanatics, liars, whose sole is completely sold and devoted for ignorant feudalist like that of Meles/sbhat loyalists and those of us on the other side of truth who are challenging Feudal boy, Mels & Sebhat to open free media and court to open charges against the leaders of TPLF for the crime done against humanity, our families who were been tortured, murdered, kidnapped, barbarically burned live on fire and thousands of our Tegadelti Tegaru’s blood wasted to water the life of few feudal TPLF leaders who simply took them as god given slaves died for them in the name of fake liberation to liberate Teritrea/Isayas and put Meles/Sebhat to power!

    No matter how Americans, Chinas protect Meles and his cliques to exploit the country, I know from my heart, one day all those mercenaries with blood on their hand will face justice and bright day in front me. That day will not be far. The Benshangul, the Somali, the Oromo, the Tigrayans, the Amhra, the Gurage, the Millions abused by TPLF are exposing the tremendous injustice carried by Meles government all over the world including in the congress in TPLF ‘s surrogate “America”. We were few, now we are millions and millions and it just became easier for us everyday getting better while the Amhara phob TPLF are exploring slowly what they were been hiding all those years now start to wear Ethiopianism flag after the Bdime conflict! Since then they are wearing it! We won – count one- it was called CHERK!REMEMBER?

    The struggle will continue, if we die others will take over. It this merit that kept the torch brighter and active still.

    Coming to you brother-

    , I saw you mentioned me how I was gathering years back Tigrayans on EEEDN discussion forum against Amharans such as of yours SelameAb and the like and asked me how got into this bashing TPLF? The first thing I like to tell you I this – – A fanatic Tigrayanphobia like you and the people you mentioned are racists who hate Tigrayans who knew the twisting turning dance of chauvinism. If you are a man of truth, you should have bring that poem of his son what he wrote about the dry barren Tigray from Switzerland. It was you and your likes why I decided to stop entering EEDN.

    If there was a man who I detested very sourly and dislike to talk- it was Tesfaye mengistu the man who is here with this article that we are discussing on Debteraw.com. Him and me went head to head many times with his crew, but I am a man who never holds things on my heart. And here you see me right now at this moment came supporting and encouraging Tesfaye Mengistyu’s view on this forum. If I was as you think I am, I could have the one who should attack tesfaye Mengistu the way me and him were on EEDN. But, I respect his view and I have to respect when he is right. Period! But for you to come up here and ask me with out mentioning what your likes posted on EEDN about the Tigray people and our ancestors in Tigray is not eloquent for a person like yourself who think himself as God man! So if you think, I will stop defending Tigrayans because I hate the mercenary Banda TPLF who landlocked Ethiopia, you must be out of your mind. It this uniqueness that kept me going this far. I do not support because some one is somebody, I support him/her according to his merit and genuine intentions!

    2- Coming to the other Amhara-phob opportunist fanatic Tigrayans who cry hard when their bloodthirsty leaders are challenged.

    Since, Let me start my view thanking those who supported me and gave me the courage to walk up to this and those who opposed me or deny my Ethiopiawinet or Tigrawaynet all due to your self delusion. Above all, I will stand firm as I did before and firmest than ever to those Fanatical Tigrayan TPLF of Mels and Sebhat Boys who refused to see the abuse of our people and chose to serve the Half Eritrean breed of Raisee Haile Tesfamariam family Seraye Awraja and the branch tree of DeKibaro and Seraye – Meles and Sebhat Nega the die hard Ertitreans than the Eritreans -who brought unacceptable death and distraction for our brotherly sisterly people of on both sides of the Mereb River still remain unaccountable.

    I like to make it absolutely clear that we have so many unanswered questions which neither we nor the families of those who lost their loved once want forget and forgive not only now in the last 16 years but even the time of all TPLF leaders were leaders, judges, torturers and decision makers in the jungle. They are all responsible for the death, imprisonment, captive slaves/soldiers made to vanish, poisoned captives, TPLF Tegadelti/fighters, priests, Diakones farmers, -execution, their cows property robbed and the of so many lifes atrocities, blunders, cruelties.

    Remember, many of the so-called Tigrayan intellectuals and scholars remain silent or became opportunists for too long remained part of the conspiracy of silence (in fact many of them were open supporters of the racist TPLF against Amhra). The sad thing is, even those who were silent were to scare to even ask some fundamental questions that might bring about an end to the suffering of our people.

    As one Eritrean Ethiopian scholar said –As far as we are concerned, we have never given up hope. We had always thought that if that this generation of Eritreas doesn’t want to face the truth, the next generation would be compelled to do so. Our hope the fore has never been to give up hope. One day, we had hoped that truth and justice will come and we think it is coming”- Ethiopia will prevail!!!

  48. DID YOU GUYS LISTEH THE PRO BERHANU AND BETINACHEW TSIGE AUDIO POSTED ON DAWIT KEBEDE’S EFM? DIN’T THE FELLOW SOUND LIKE MELES ZENAWI’S WIFE? HE TALKS – HOW BERHANU COULD LIVE AND LEAD HIS LIFE AS UNIVERSITY LECTURURE, UNITED STATES………IF HE WANTED TOO – HE CAN SELL HIS BRAIN IN EVERYWHRE… WEY GOOOOOUUUUUUUOOD?

    yE HE DEMO kEYET META? hE MADE LAUGH WHEN HE ASLO SPEAK TO US IN AMHRAIC AND IN ENGLISH? SOMETIMES HE SOUNDS BENYAM KEBEDE THE “MELES BOY” IS HE HIS BROTHER?- THE WAY HIS MIND AND HIS CHILDISH PRESENTATION ON MEDIA SOUNDS HIM!!!!!!!! WECHE GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUD YE HE dIASPORA SINTUN POLETIKENGNA METABEEN?

  49. Folks, remember Andargcahew is the Woyne who has the secrte mission to destroy Kinjit,
    His sister is the wife of the notorious Super Woyane TEFERA Walawa
    The GANG OF FOUR- the berhanu Nega clique- who are trying to destroy Kinjit , from within are his messengers inside the party.
    think of the increaing role Behanu want s Andargachew to play- Andargachew is not a recognized memebr of Kinjit
    All will be reveald pretty soon

  50. just a few points:
    – who was behind the appointment of such a political novice, Bertukan, , with little experienc to become vice president of such a large mass-based party, without even n he being elected in any capacity? Why and what was the objectve. hre i want also to crticize engineer hail to allow such a disastrous didescions prmpted by the gang of four
    – What wa the objective ofthat descion” we are witneeisng some of it- Beahne wants to use her as his mouth peice, since he knwos very ll he and Andargache have littel suppot in Ethiopia , That was why all that parting for bertukan after their relase
    Some indcations are that the Temsgen gropu is working actively with Berhanu to undermine Kinjit and succumb to the rule of Woyane unreservedly.
    Imagie what would have happend to the US congress resoultion? without the firm resistance to the dicattaor shown by By Engineer hailau, and the majority of kinjit and the Ethiopian people. If Berhanu had his way everthing would have been smooth for Woyane by now, clainimg democracy, keping the ethiopin peple in opoveerty and darknes and misery
    That is why all of us have to be really, really careful on the lie manfactring machines tht are increasingly being installed across cyberspace by Berhanu and Andaargachew.

  51. One of the weaknesses of Ethiopian opposition’s party is lake of professional fighters as well as full time strugglers .because they do not have professionals men and women as well as professional leaders, they could not been seen to draft and implement a good strategy that kneel down TPLF.
    Because, they are amateur or part time strugglers, they had not been seen when outline sound means of struggle and forms of organization that is suitable for their means of struggle.
    Because, they are not professional strugglers, their means of struggle is not flexible according to the tactic and strategy of our enemy.
    The question is who is professional political organization within the opposing bloc?
    I am quite sure you may have got the answer that, which this organization is, before I precede to the answer.
    That is EPRP.
    As we knew, EPRPhave untapped potential within the opposition bloc, unfortunately we could not utilize their potential as results of the intolerance habits of the opposition group, to compromise today, and to compete each other tomorrow.

  52. Remmebr this :
    Berhanu Nega has always been a darling of AIGA FORUM web site? does’t this ring a bell in your ears? is this not self explanatory?
    Who was reciving the masive hate proganda and lies of woyane and AIGA ? all Woyane propagand was tagetd at Engineer hailu Shwel . all along AIGA as lamenting why Berhanu shopul suffr the fate of hailu unnecessraily while he can come out in te open and submit to them . pleas refr to AIGs posing on berhanu nega”. AIGA were frank in always saying that Berhanu has to break from Kinjit and Hailu. Do get theirmessage . Now they are happy as things have come out in the open..

    Berhanu knows that he has no policial base in Ethiopia,allhis policial activites are inthe US adnwithUs emabvasy in Ethiopia and he wants to serve his master -Woyane and CIA , by trying to destroy Kinjit

    Be aware of his objectives- he is not concernd about the poverty and misery of the Ethiopian people , he wants to be in the limlight and cover up for Woyane disastrous record of the past 18 years.

    Agin remember how Berhanu, Berket Simon and Andargacehw are linked-all former EPRP members, who gave up the struggle for the liberation of the Ethioipan people and joined Woyane, because they don’t have the strength of charater to stand for principles but rather seek the favour fo the current political power/ winner

    The trimuvarte are attempting to destroy the glorious kinjt party , will the succed ? well it depends on hoew the Ethiopian people understand it, and the fact on the ground is that the majority of the people used to Know who Berhanu was and now have confirmed their earlier suspicions.
    on the other hand if they succed this will be the first time an internet induced propaganda machine succeds in denying the people of Ethiopia the freedom thsy some much desire.

    We are at the cross-roads

  53. I have such a weird experience that there are a group of people dedicated to bash and trash anything EPRP or even a passer-by around EPRP. In fact I had lost an elder brother who dedicated himself for the common good of the Ethiopian people under the banner of EPRP. I remember my brother who was selfless, hard working and bright. He was by far older than his age in analyzing and synthesizing complicated issues instantly. Along his friends, he was a devoted everything for the benefit of his country under the leadership of EPRP.
    With such background I am not green about EPRP and the painstaking struggle it accomplished. It is noteworthy that somebody can’t simply preach fallacies or brain-wash me nor dent my respect to my gallant brother and his glorious abode, The EPRP. Indeed the more I saw they corner EPRP (the party that rallied millions, the party that pays in blood and flesh, the party that never ever betrayed Ethiopia and the party that commands extraordinary persistence), the more they grow depreciating, rustic, asinine and hoodlumish to my sense of judgment. The rush to denigrate Getachew Reda’s soul-searching article purely demonstrates the rough behavior of some elements who simply wished to see failed EPRP at any cost.
    Dear Ethiopians, when I came across a dictionary, I found amazing parallel with those groups who are dedicated their life for one purpose – bashing EPRP. I found them fitting at least up to stage 5 and time will tell us for the remaining part. Here you are:
    A hate group is an organized group or movement that advocates hate, hostility, or violence towards members of competing interests.
    Hate groups usually assert that the targets of their attacks are harmful to society, malicious, less fit to be members of society, or are operating some hidden cabal. The evidence hate groups present for these assertions is usually poorly corroborated, and is often based explicitly on the hate group’s negative beliefs about the social groups to which the target is or is imagined to belong.
    The hate group continues to propagate assertions, myths, narratives and rumors, playing upon fear, xenophobia, blame or jealousy, with the aim of harming the individuals and groups they target, and inciting others to distrust or hate them also. The ultimate aim of a hate group is commonly the delegitimization, elimination, and exclusion of groups, or of individuals. Hate groups often use their victims as scapegoats to blame for discontent in society.
    According to a report published in 2003 in the FBI Law Enforcement bulletin, a hate group, if unimpeded, passes through seven successive stages of hate. In the first four stages, hate groups vocalize their beliefs and in the last three stages, they act on their beliefs. The report points to a transition period that exists between verbal violence and acting that violence out, separating hard-core haters from rhetorical haters.
    Stage 1: Grouping
    Haters feel compelled to have others hate as they do. Through peer validation, they get a sense of self-worth and at the same time prevent introspection. Individuals who otherwise would be ineffective become empowered when they form or join groups. In addition, groups provide a welcome anonymity in which to express hate without being held accountable.
    Stage 2: Self-definition
    Hate groups create identities through symbols, mythologies, and rituals, designed to enhance the members’ status and at the same time, degrade the object of their hate.
    Stage 3: Disparaging the target
    By verbally debasing the object of their hate, haters enhance their self-image, as well as their group status. Researchers have found that the more often a person thinks about aggression, the greater the chance for aggressive behavior to occur. Thus, after constant verbal denigration, haters progress to the next stage.
    Stage 4: Taunting the target
    Time cools the fire of hate forcing the hater to look inward. To avoid introspection, haters increase their use of rhetoric and violence to maintain high levels of agitation. Taunts and offensive gestures serve this purpose.
    Stage 5: Attacking without weapons
    This stage is critical because it differentiates vocally abusive haters from physically abusive ones. Violence coalesces hate groups and isolates them from mainstream society. The element of thrill-seeking appears in this stage. The adrenaline “high” intoxicates the attackers. Each successive hate derived thought or action triggers a more violent response than the one that originally initiated the sequence. Anger builds on anger. Adrenaline-high combined with hate becomes a deadly combination.
    Stage 6: Attacking with weapons
    Some attackers use firearms to commit hate crimes, while others prefer close-contact weapons. Requiring the attacker to be close to the victim, shows the personal-anger aspects of hate. Some attackers choose to discharge firearms at a distance, thus avoiding personal contact. Personal contact empowers and fulfills the deep-seated need of the hater to have dominance over the object of their hate.
    Stage 7: Destroying the target
    The ultimate goal of haters is to destroy the object of their hate. With the power over life and death comes a great sense of self-worth and value; however, the ultimate destiny of hate is the physical and psychological destruction of both the hater and the hated.
    Terrorism link
    If the group continues to increase in membership, and at the same time increase their power and popularity in Stage 7, they may then be classified as a terrorist group, which is when the hate group has the ability to control the political climate. As terrorism is defined as using violent acts to achieve one’s goal using fear, some hate groups have now increased to having that ability, and they become terror groups. These groups are typically characterized as being increasingly dangerous and extremist. Alleged terror groups such as the Nazi Party in Germany from 1933 to 1945 began as small groups that followed the steps of the typical hate group.
    Hate groups on the Internet
    In the mid-1990s, the popularity of the Internet brought new international exposure to many organizations, including groups with beliefs such as white supremacists, Holocaust deniers, anti-Islamic and other groups. A number of authority figures stated publicly that the Internet allowed hate groups to introduce their messages to a widespread audience, and it was feared that their memberships would gain in popularity and numbers as a result. Some scholars suggest that the information overload brought forth by the Internet may be manipulated for the purpose of damaging specific groups or organizations.
    Since the advent of the Internet, a common tactic by hate groups is the use of Cyberstalking. Several white supremacist groups have founded Web sites dedicated to attacking their perceived enemies, such as Ken McVay, founder of the Nizkor Project; or Morris Dees, founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
    Using the pervasiveness of the Internet, hate groups are promoting a more “professional” veneer which may appear as more scientific and intellectual than hateful. This apparent normalization is considered a dangerous trend in the United States:
    “..the hate movement in the United States has taken on a new, modern face. The strength of the contemporary hate movement is grounded in its ability to repackage its message in ways that make it more palatable, and in its ability to exploit the points of intersection between itself and prevailing ideological canons. In short, the hate movement is attempting to move itself into the mainstream of United States culture and politics.”
    Dear compatriots,
    I feel every Ethiopian citizen has compelling responsibility, to protect our heroes and heroines if we aspire to see a better Ethiopia for our children and grandchildren.
    No wealth and position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice; therefore anyone shall engage in no transaction which doesn’t benefit all whom it affects. We’ve to succeed by attracting to us the forces we wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. We’ll induce others to serve us, because of our willingness to serve others. We shall eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because we know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring us success. We shall cause others to believe in us, because we will believe in them, and in us. There is nothing come out to be positive from someone who is always negatively conscious.
    The majority of people who fail to succeed are generally easily influenced by the opinions of others. They permit the Newspapers and the gossiping neighbors to do their thinking for them. Opinions are the cheapest commodities on earth. Everyone has a flock of opinions ready to be wished upon anyone who will accept them. If you are influenced by the opinions of others, you will have no desire of your own. You have a brain and mind of your own. Use it and reach your own decision based on truth, justice and common sense.

    Protect our HEROES and HEROINES to protect our Nation – ETHIOPIA

  54. In some cities in North America Tigrayans and Orthodox Amharas have been divided for a very long time. The Amhara Orothodox Christians and the Tigrayan Orothodox Christians have their own speparte Churches
    and leading priests. There might be some overlapping
    attendances in Ethiopian Orthodox Churches when it comes to worshipping Jesus Christ a one and only one God. I wonder if there will be Separate Jesus Christ
    for Amharas and Tigrayans in Heaven. I could see it here in North America they are looking at Him form
    their political prespectives.

    Do you get my point; the rift is deeper than what people are saying. The religious, the civilized and the educated are not even afraid of Our Lord.
    Add political fuels and its effects,
    the division is as wide as the Rift Valley itself.
    I wonder if they are going to talk to each other in Heaven or Hell, let alone on Earth.

    I could see Darwin the British is laughing at us when his cousins are delivering guns and police advisors so that we could kill each other with out the White man pulling a single trigger. Just collect profits.
    Allas! They might have mistook Darwin’s book for the Holy Bible. Geuss what; they do not understand both books right. Am I correct? Habasha fools obsessed with guns never knew how to survive in fast chaging world. I could see many little Tewodroses and Yohaneses running around begging for guns to just kill each other. See Isayas and Meles they are ammassing guns to commit another social suicide. Stop the Blood shed in the churches and the mountains.
    As to Burtukan she might have not seen yet that she is in a big shit of national politics that had been
    drenched with blood. I say to her prepare your swords to fight back and tighten your belts.I forget the Protestants are delivery of guns from Northern Europe and the Ethipian muslims are having fun beacuase of the oil booms in the Gulf Regions to get Arab swords to kill habashaa Kafirs.

  55. I got this part from Ato Getachew Reda’s discussion post. “Sabatta” can you deal with this first before talking rubbish about Oromo Orthodox religion followers? That is rude to hear from OLF to insult Oromo Orthodox followers!
    Leace the Orom Orthodox followers alone and deakl the tell us what you know about your criminal leaders. Will you?
    “Many Oromo nationalists gave these “leaders” the benefit of the doubt and kept tugging along for a long time. There were people, however, most of whom were members of the OLF, who had understood the sinister motives of their leaders from the get go. Those who spoke up were murdered when possible and systematically marginalized when not. Among those murdered were Nadhi Gammada, Jamal Robale and Baro Tumsa”.

  57. Negede Habesha,
    Though I think your comments are long, which could stand on their own as a worthwhile article, I have to thank you for honest assessment of the lunatic fringes. I am afraid new breed Ethiopian “politicians” seem to feel superior each time they bash the EPRP. It is my honest belief that it is not only the EPDRF that is really afraid of the powerful ideas that the EPRP stands for it is also these turncoats who would like to feast over the death of Ethiopia sponsored by Washington who have immense hatred against the EPRP. The EPRP is not a legally recognized body in Ethiopia while the rest enjoy the daily goulash with the regime. Why? These irrational and bloodsucking bugs know it. The EPRP does not deal the future of Ethiopia for the crumbs of the west. If we stand on our own we will be doomed. Wake up the purposely asleep! Stop bashing the EPRP. Express yourselves in your own terms; not on the backs of those who suffered most!

  58. Did any of you visit Ethiomedia.com? How do you see this idiot called “Aklog” the OLF main backer and the promoter of the Betinachew Tsige and his KIL crew? Read what he said below.

    “Mr. Aklog also cited the key contribution of members of the Kinijit International Leadership (KIL), and called on the CUDP-Kinijit leaders to recognize KIL’s contribution to today’s consolidated existence of the support chapters?.

  59. FROM GETACHEW REDA \TO ALL ETHIOPIANS IN THE DIASPORA

    KIL is what I called it “OLF Piano”. I like to inform Aklog and his OLF crew “KIL” taht when we fight for freedom, we mean freedom for us for Ethiopians. We do not want any one who called Ethiopian like the Aklog crap who kept boosting the moral of racists like that of Endargachew Tsige who insult Ethiopia and Ethiopians as “elusive dreamers with no ethnic group to hide or connect or join or fit together”. Any one who keeps partenership in politics with this fellow is not seen better than TPLF (if not worst)! Those who kept praize this fellow and his friends will be subject for media scrutiny. Ethiopia will prevail

  60. Indeed Getachew , in the end Ethiopia will surely prevail over the Woyane agents -Berhanu Nega and Andargachew Tsige- Although these are trying times ultimately truth will triumph for al of us who can endure the woyane inspired internet camapain against Kinjit and Ethiopia’s national interest

    We will persevere, hope and trust the Ethiopian peoples’ spirit to endure and come through difficult times.

    Kinjit is the Way
    Ethiopia forever

  61. Thanks Belayneh:

    Yes, people have to be aware of what Ato Getcahew Reda called them “the BB Media” like that of Ethiomedia, Ethiopian Review, Addis Dimts, Abugida, Ketero be watched by the public closely from now on and expose them when they promote the EPRDF/OLF and the CUD BB architect Andargachew Tsige to fulfil his dream of anti Amhara and anti Ethiopianism.

  62. Berhanu and Andrgachew are not anti Amhara or any thnic group, They are simply Ethiopiaa and all Ethiopians

  63. ye Amaraw Hizb ket wedyet- is that not the anti Amhara poison? you can defende him, but you can’t even if you wanted, bexause, he already said he was wrong to write that book to insult Amhara and Ethiopia- from the pressure to go alomg with Weyane anti Ethiopia policy out of his emotionm though, he said ,he is still proud of that book. your Answer is expected?

  64. I didn’t know you guys are Aigists. I don’t think Debeteraw (Tsegaye) will be happy to see his name used for anti-Ethiopian slur web site. Wait till the judgement day comes and will see who contributed positively to common good of Ethiopia.
    One thing I noticed is your socialist mentality never changes. This time your number is limited. I have a list of 76 registered people, 7 of which are in Ethiopia. You guys are famous Promoting hate among fellow citizens and funny enough you were dying from politics till Kinijit has its own problem .
    My advice is you better have positive agenda and put your self with ideas how we gonna come out of the stalemate holds us for centuries.Grow up!!

  66. Debteraw Blog Just another WordPress.com weblogIn the Case of Total Ignorance, We can Gamble but We Can’t Trust (Response to Bertukan’s Apology to Tigrayans) By Getachew Reda The power hunger “Splinter” group of Berhanu Nega’s Kinijit has been galloping to every State until now with an attempt to sell them selves as the viable leadership of Kinijit after distancing themselves from legitimate leader of Kinijit “Eng. Hailu Shawel”. Judge Bertukan Mediksa a bright, educated young lady seemed to commit bundle of negative decisions perhaps easily manipulated by wrong advisors around her. . Lately, in her Minneapolis tour of speech she made to Ethiopians is the latest surprising for many of us. Her supporters websites came out with news and headlines explaining that “Judge Birtukan Mideksa has apologized for the reckless slurs of Kinijit.com/org, which claims to be the official website of the party. She said the website is beyond the control of Kinijit and anything it publishes does not represent Kinijit”. Source “Addis Voice website”. According to her speech, while touring the large United States, she and her group is been met and honored by large numbers of different Ethnic Ethiopians but not so much from Tigrayan ethnic group. She came to her conclusion reasoning to why Tigrayans were not seen in greater number in every city she tour was due to the attack of racial slur against Tigrayans made by Kinijit.com/org based in the United States. So far, she didn’t give any evidence for her accusation on the said website. Even though, myself emailed the website editor to explain me if there is any such sort aired or published or said in the name of their website, if so by who and what was said and when, so far I didn’t get no response to my surprise (may be they are too busy to response in shorter time I demanded). Having said this, such conclusion of hers to why Tigrayans didn’t came to support in her tour is intentionally misleading and deceptive to gain more acceptance by the intended targets and to disparage her opponents. As anti Tigrayan group. She should know better that leave alone Tigrayans to her meetings who were been isolated from associating with detribalized community since 1977 (Ethiopian Calendar), even the rest of the Ethiopian communities themselves are been organized associated and tied up with their tribe, ethnic issues which she seemed to encourage “according to some of her fussy speech”. It is not something new that they never accustomed to. It is naïve of her or her advisors to believe that they will come to her all in a sudden something they never been used or familiar with such call from Pan Ethiopian opposition organization. Gonder Limat, Tigray Limat, Gurage Limat,, Adere Limat and what have you….. Of hundreds of Bantustan-zed associations had an impact to the fragile to the Pan Ethiopian unity in different forms. Judge Bertukan lives in Ethiopia and she should have known better to why such phenomenon came to this level. Kinijit.org has nothing to do with such fundamental problem of unity as she wanted us to believe as if the fragile came to surface suddenly from the consequence of a reckless slur posted on a single website against a given community. What was she expecting, from the community that freely and voluntary and happily communicate with Meles Zenawi who enjoyed freely touring Ethiopia in and out anytime they wish to constantly boost the moral of an Eethnocentric visionary and mercenaries who are responsible for uncountable blood on their hand. There is no doubt in my mind that the community that she is talking and apologizing knows that was not the case for their boycott (if such was the case) and should not be the case for discussion. She is talking to a community who is been mislead by connive narrow ethnic elements for the last 16 years in a country where she was serving as a judge. These are Sebhat Nega and Meles boys! Let us not miss the target of the cause! The people were been told as Dr Fulas once in his writings said “Our problem is often, that we uncritical and categories that others have developed for their own peculiar situation and /or from their own particular perspective and we let them apply these categories to us as they see fit. The situation reduces essentially to this: They i.e., some expatriates, tell us there is, for example, a Hausa tribe, Tigray tribe, Gurage tribe, Oromo tribe, Kikuyu, tribe, Amhara tribe, a Tigray, etc, etc, We accept and begin identifying ourselves as such. They later change the label, come, and tell us, “No, you are not a tribe, you are an ethnic group.”We gleefully accept the revision and loudly proclaim to the world, “I am an ethnic group!” Then are told, “No, not an ethnic group. You are a nationality, a nation…” and we begin to ask for self determination>! She knew better, that Ethiopians were been Balkanized for a long time now. There are still elements and secessionists harping on the phrase of “self determination” as we speak. The Hoxa Albania policy of Meles Zenawi is still active and alive in the Diaspora. Knowing all this huge problem which is been there since 1977 that Tigrayans or anyone for that matter didn’t come together when it comes to a national issues and conferences. The fact is we come and smile, hug, discuss in a mood of Pan Ethiopianism together when there is bullet to throw at all of us someone an aggressor from outside against Ethiopia as a whole. Her accusation against Kinijit as an excuse to apologizing Tigrayans is the most obscured I have ever heard .It is unwise, premature propaganda it could be nothing other than to degrade her opponents to look good in front of others. Otherwise, there is no way that Kinijit.or or any individual websites or writings could cause for Tigrayans to avoid showing their support to her group. The problem is beyond the case she is trying to tell us. Unfounded ground for such claim as the case is misguiding society to why we Ethiopians are not coming together. It is not Kinijit.org, but the entire society each of us who accepted to define who we are as bunch of ethnocentric community and how we should come to gather is responsible for such negative effect and outcome and failure. It is out undeniable nature of our history. Our priests were been comforting Fascist Italy and individuals while their leader is giving his head to the bullet voluntary to defend his national pride, while certain communities were supporting Mussolini and slaughtered Ethiopian patriots during the darkest age of the colony era. Our history is mainly packed by sorrow and betrayal through out history. It is been ethnocentric mentality that was battling our psych through out. “Few” patriotic nationalist Ethiopians were the only one who fought and defend the integrity of the nation while the large number was a watcher and neutral (ask elders, they will tell you what I am intensively telling you). It is this history of ours who we are and how we come together is now defining our current nature. It irritates me to hear such bright young lady to downgrade the maturity of the consumers for coming with such testy advertisement and misleading the core cause for our disunity. This distorted and manipulative political advertisement could give an ammunition of excuse to no one, but, for those ethnocentric elements going around dressed up with “self determination” as if they were pushed and aggravated by website but not by their own separatist tendencies. Why her group decided to come out with this bad publicity and communication is beyond believe. Her thoughts to apologize for Tigrayans because of a website is absolutely irresponsible and showed that there seems to be no potential buyer to her group in the future. She might not aware to how such cheap temporary gain of popularity of acceptance made by her website supporters bringing her comments and her beautiful portraits for the public to see it with a skill full of photographer for consumers to satisfy what they see on her; but, as we knew commercial is essentially materialistic without glorifying the side effect. The problem might reveal therefore later after the glorification of superficial gains. Her determination to come public and air such distorted advertisement lacks basic ground. By her coming with such nonsense conclusion, it wont help them but could prevent the communities to find out their own weakness and blame it on individual website operators. What an opportunity could get than this sky fall opportunity to use excuse for a community in many ways a victim of his own self who cut off themselves from the detribalized decent others who chose to focus and associate only with their own kind, gathering together, running around like many chickens with their heads cut off? . Is this the new brand of the Hoxa Meles propaganda policy of blame the NEFTENGA website to the why Tigrayans didn’t showed up to support the splinter Kinijit? Could this be the craft of the Betinachew Tsige and his stooges? Even if the accusation was right, could this be taken seriously as the core reason to aired it as valid ground to why different ethnic groups are not coming together in Pan Ethiopian political gatherings? If as consumers wanted to buy such premature and manipulative advertise as reliable, what could be her excuse for the rests of other ethnic communities that didn’t showed up on her meetings was the cause? How can we trust her advertisement? Trust is a positive expectation that another will not- through words, actions, or decisions- act opportunistically. But, in her case she disappointed me and I felt she tried to take advantage of me as a Tigrayan to fool me! There is no openness in her discussion to why Tigrayans failed to come to her meetings beside the specific minor accusation she gave by ignoring to examine the big picture behind it to why we Tigrayans are not united as one in Pan Ethiopian vision and discussions apart being Amhara nation, Tigray Nation, Oromo nation and the rest of minor nation and nationalities and people (I do not know what all those categories meant in social definition and “people” mean different than the ordinary word called People) that we were told to we are that which we are not. In the case of a total ignorance such as this situation, we can gamble, but we can’t trust. I understand there are few jubilant of hers that received her message with full trust. But in such obvious manipulation, a clever and knowledgeable audience could be capable of correcting an advertisement that may be misleading to a less knowledgeable and less educated group (pardon me not the connive educated groups and websites who are jubilant of her in an exaggerated claims whose judgment is limited to see the effect on the struggle and the unity of the CUD party) by exposing the deceptive mock-ups as she tried to guaranteed where nothing is guaranteed that kinijit.org was the cause for her claim she failed to disclosed the defect or the claim she announce for her apology. To me such cheap attempt is nothing different than the deceptive modern advertising that wanted to fool consumers and audiences with a fraudulent ways of advertising that involve more complex schemes. In the case of such ignorance, I think we can gamble, but we can’t trust! //-/ Ethiopia will prevail!

On October 23, 2007 at 10:06 am Len Ford Said: Getachew, please don;t be discouraged by the lies of Birtukan , a simple tool for Berhanu Nega , who in turn is a simple tool for Woyane especially Berket Simon, Morning in Ethiopia is coming soon whether Bertukan says stupid things or not- All the hype about her was highly orchestrated by Woyane to sideline the real heroes of the fight for Ethion Democcay . All Ethiopian are now discovering the true colors of the Berhanu- (the second Lidetu) 11 clique, In a week’s time time all the disapra will understand why, The very close relationship beteeen Berhanu and Lidut will be revealed in detail pretty soon People like you shoul rise to the occasion to build the New , democtratic Ethiopia, free from pathological liars like Berhanu Nega and Meles zenawi Truth is stubborn , it may disppoint but eventuly it will triumph Imagine – The Tigary diaspra being isolated by a web site- the same cheap propaganda Woyne uses to entice and scare the great people of Tigray against Ethiopia On October 23, 2007 at 10:44 am Amut Amah Said: Getachew, I could not finish reading the piece. It is full of vile and no substance. You and your boss Hama Tuma are well versed in name calling but you have nothing to show for it. It does not matter what Birtukan said, you will not support her. You and the EPRP wing that is aligned with Hama Tuma, Fasiha do not grasp the changes in body politic of Ethiopia. You current infatuation with Hailu Shawel is laughable. The only similarity is this group throught Girma w/Giorgis, Hama Tuma’s father in law might have some connection to Hailu and his senior citizen clique. As to the offensive material, it is easy to see. I have a number of articles that use the term “Tigre Weyanewoch”. This was a cheap shot that was intentionally used to isolate Tigreans. This is particularly used by Dr. Getachew and his group that calls itself Kinijit Editorial Board. Of course this was a self appointed board unless it was appointed by Pres. Girma, Hama Tuma’s father in law. So Getachew why do you follow Kinijit’s politics so close? It is clear you do not like them. In fact why are Iyasu Alemayehu’s communication empire (Debteraw, Ethiolion, Assimba website and paltalk room, Diaspora etc) so obsessed with Kinijit? We all know the EPRP is in the midst of a contentious struggle. Why do you not talk or write about it? Unfortunately the hoodlum wing that controls all EPRP resources and is led by none other than Pres. Girma’s son in Law, husband of Genet Girma seems to be in the lead. That aside why do you not discuss your divisions? It is clear in a couple of months EPRP will lose some its few critically thinking members. Then it will end up with Getachew, Genet, Hama Tuma, Iyasu Alemayeh (he is two or one?) and a few religious fanatics. The religion being the organization. For all political purposes EPRP is no more a political group but a cult that specialized in name calling and lies spearheaded by the chief who has never worked one day: Iyasu Alemayeu. On October 23, 2007 at 12:25 pm Tamiru Said: It is undermining of the Tgreans intelligent as Birtukan saying as why they were not appear to receive her and her groups. Because all Tigreans who reside in in USA knows that her group is not associated with the groups of Kinijit.org.they know that her group is antagonistic to whom she refered.and the Tigreans knows this fact as clear as day light. Their absence in her group reception have may their own reason. It is not as she tries to undermine them.anyway,what she is trying is nothing but to buy cheap popularity.but,it is extremely sorrowful in such trivial manner to try to undermine the Tigreans. On October 23, 2007 at 12:47 pm Alemayehu Said: Patriotic Ethiopians Please take note of the following about Berhanu Nega – is a crony of berket simon, shares many screte with him – had made a deal with Lidetu to betray and chracter assasinate Engineer Hailu- He changed his mind at the last minute-details will come soon _ How can a man like him write such a book in a Woyane maximum prison ,without being noticed, can you sneak out all those pages unnoticed, can you write all those pages by hand , on what kind of paper , where??This are the questions that neeed answering as soon as possible. Another big question now is: was the ghost writer of that book Andargachew or Berhane mewa , or did they contract it out to some goodwriter by narration:?? Please note what Berhanu is trying to do to Eighy- 80 million Plus people of Ethiopia: -he is trying to accomadate and share power with Woyane on the shoulders of real Kinjit leaders and the people who paid the ulitmte sacrife for freedom and demcoracy – He is trying to create an other propaganda machine and another assualt on Ethiopia with inciting and help of Indian Ocean Newsletter (ION)- fed by Andargachew?? et–, Ethiopan review, Etio Media , EMF- some unwitting accomaplice who have not really comrehended the real situatiion on the ground- I hope they will understand pretty soon what is being done. He wants to mak a shortcut to power using news maedia and help of Ameruican Embassy- This- imagine he wants to impose himself on the Ethiopian Peope by Americans and some websites- he doesnt’ care what the people in Ethiopia think. he dosen’t consider doen’t give a damn about the majority of Kinjit council members. he thinks by shouting and high sounding words he will be a polictical leadr??, What a laughing stock in Ethiopia!! , in a country with lions like Engineer Hailu!!! a sneaky mouse like him has no pace any more He will be washe awy with Woyanehis God. The Ethiopin people have spoken and they will speak again, he only hungers for power through the support of some media oultets mistakingsychophant spin masters with the Ethiopian people. On October 23, 2007 at 12:50 pm Sileshi Said: I have read part of your article and there no need to finish it Mr. Reda you and your agnets EPRP are full promoting hatred on Kinijit. You should know one thing, you have never done any thing substantial in your life other than messing up the peace and Unity of Ethiopian people with your articles. You have been told so many times that, Kinijit has done accomplished and took the heart of Ethiopian people that your party couldn’t do it in the last 40 years. shame on you and now you are trying to mess up the unity of the party by holding Eng. hailu hostage. But you will see, it won’t happen. Kinijit will blossom and go from strength to strength. On October 23, 2007 at 1:26 pm Hagos Said: Getachew please understand that Berhanu and Co , have a lot of budget for propaganda, like woyane, employing full time spin masters on the internt, Like his master the Woyane , Berhanue is becoming a pthological liar, a sellout, divorced from the Ethiopain reality, made for TV and American audience, we tell him he doen’t belong to Ethiopia , let him spin in DC and NY LA etc, where he really belongs On October 23, 2007 at 1:28 pm Tamiru Said: This is a response for SiLESHI If the article of Getachew embodied substantiated matters is gobbledygook, why you vomited out your nonsense in response him. Is it non sense to deal about, when a large number of people intelligent undermine by bunches of irresponsible so as to get cheap popularity? Is it nonsense to forward a response when an irresponsible person tries to create incitements of violence? You see it is not a new phenomena someone to write for his tip payer like you. But it is not in such manner which is less than the thoughts of ordinary humanbeing. On October 23, 2007 at 1:41 pm Mulugeta Said: For those which are trying to associate the writer (Getachew ) as EPRP clique I want to ask you simple question,how many of EPRP members, claimants are working with the x-judge bitukan group, or is it because they have betrayed and exposed their comrades at the time of the fight against the military Junta, or is it for siding with TPLF during the time EPRP was forced from assimba. About the brutality TPLF used I wish and leave for those which managed to escape alive to speak it out. How many times is your Birhanu betraying his friends just to get to power and sell Ethiopia. for your knowledge i have no affiliation with EPRP past or present. On October 23, 2007 at 2:02 pm Pumpkin Said: You’re still not convinced??? The whole African command is to working to disintegrate Kinijit in all capacity. Once it has been said that BBs committed coup d etat and are agents of ECIA what do you expect from such group? Getachew are n’t you convinced? After almost five weeks Brhanu told on VOA he is an agent of TPLF and like Lidetu!(Melkina Amel Eyadere…) Now he is visiting a psychiatry hospital for mental problem due to the crime he committed on May 2005 (Astekuash). Similarly Birtukuan speech is an extension of the BB act.Had not professor Mesfin intervened TPLF brewed to trap Hailu by Seye et al or UEDF to accept Ethnic federalism. Ethnic federalism is racism and capitalizing on our deference’s.If Ethiopia agrees to fallow this path, there is no need going long with TPLF. As an Oromo, I prefer to join with Kenya even eventually with Somalia Dijoubouti than exploited by the tyrant cheaters TPLF. The TPLF people with out any resource are milking the resource of the country more than ever. When does a thief become a general, only under TPLF. On 21 October, Seye who was hibernating and was released for tactical reason preferred Ethnic federalism, TPLF Leadership Split over Ideology (Gambling Narrow nationalism versus Puppet government) The Split in the top leadership of the (TPLF) became official (March 22, 2001) as the Twelve of the central committee members, who reportedly belong to the “dissenting group”, were Tewolde Woldemariam, Siye Abraha, Abay Tsehaye, Gebru Asrat, Alemseged Gebreamlak, Aregash Adane, Awalom Woldu, Gebremeskal Hailu, Hasen Shifa, Solomon Tesfay, Abraha Kahsay and Belay Bitew. Where are this guys ? working behind the screen The spit was 50% and the chairman Meless has to cast a vote under negotiator. Once it was agreed, those who stay in power start making propagandas against the defeated as if the split was genuine!! It was tactical 1)To reduce the tension of narrow nationalism 2)In case Meless fails the second group could negotiate. Unlike the politics of the 70ies Ethiopian politics is becoming more complex. Each step needs a careful move. In recent days the move is differentiating a wolf and sheep can not live together. We should worry first the unity of the country not the unity of CUD. On October 23, 2007 at 3:35 pm berhane Said: Fellow Ethiopian , areminder to all wholove their country Time will tell about what levl of crime Berhanu and his handlers are doing to Ethiopia, But before that happens be aware , be very very aware of a dangerous misiion by a dangerous man who has two powerful masters- CIA and Woyane He is now at liberty and with lots of money to buy websites, and media people , The glorious Kinjt party- he is trying to give it as a present to WOyane He is a man who doesn;t know Ethiops or ethiopians, he simply believes by inciting media outlets like Indian Ocean Newsletter (ION) he can scare Ethiopians!!! ha , Ha , ha, he is currently a laughing stock in Ethiopia, our coutry, he wants to destablisz Kinjit and by extension tom help the historicla enemise of our country to disintegrte it, — Eventaully the truth will emerge . bu currently he is hoodmining web site lik Ethiopian Review,Ethio Media. On October 23, 2007 at 3:46 pm Zeleke Said: You guys, do not know still the difference between Meles and Siye? I am extremely sorry that there are peoples who considered the groups of Gebru who are popularized by ethiomedia as the opponents of Mels. Shame on you!!!in the first place, they did not quarrel each other on the interests of Ethiopian people. They made a quarrel with ER positive how to exploit Ethiopian resource. the ERpositive were interested to exploit the Ethiopian natural resource equally with eritrian.but the groups of Siye were dedicated and devoted to exploit Ethiopian independently. This was the core points of their quarrel. Let me ask you a simple but measuring point about the groups of Siye. If they were genuine and have not vested interest on Ethiopian politics, they would have told us about the conditions of Poet Tsegay Debteraw and his comrades, but they do not want, because they have taken the measure equally with Meles what ever the measure is. That is why they preferred to keep quite.trrust me, they are the first people who must be asked in relation Tsegay and his comrades.. On October 23, 2007 at 3:55 pm Yefajal Said: Getachew Reda, Your article is simply EPRP is Dead! Long Live EPRP! Bertukan is by far better than most of the EPRP vagabonds in the Diaspora. What do you write about Kinijit? Why do not your write about the defunct EPRP? Maferia Neh! On October 23, 2007 at 4:05 pm Sitotaw Said: All of you who are you are saying a lot about EPRP, as your talking if EPRP is non existent why you worry? Is a dead body affects the living? Please in this discussion forum we need to debate only with the real human beings. Some of you who commented about EPRP is impossible to take you in to consideration as a human being except a living dead. On October 23, 2007 at 4:14 pm ADDIS Said: You are an ass!!!! I will never login in your web site. Just SHUT YOUR ASS!!!! On October 23, 2007 at 4:24 pm Sitotaw Said: Mr. Addis please try to expound why you arrived in such conclusion. You may be offended by an individual comments but it does not mean that the individual is the team of Debtera.Halo are you watching me? Yes, please try to explain yourself even by assisting yourself by translator of ideas. On October 23, 2007 at 5:26 pm Henok Said: I was expecting Getachew Reda to talk some sense-Alas!! I was dead wrong!! Henok On October 23, 2007 at 5:38 pm tg Said: i hate our website. it is full of shit. you guys pull ethiopia from going forward. glad u r not part of kinijit On October 23, 2007 at 5:38 pm Ruth Said: YeAllah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EPRP, may I ask you one simple question? Can you give me one single fact when Berhanu Nega hides what he is doing? Wether it wrong or right he always talks about things openly and with great confidence. That is what you wanted to kill now, that was the kind of people you had been assasinating in the mid 1970s in Addis and all over the nation. You are just mad killers, not politicians. Period. On October 23, 2007 at 5:39 pm tg Said: meant to say i hate your website On October 23, 2007 at 5:45 pm Terengo Argaw Said: I am so dismayed by the vulgarity of some individuals. I wonder their upbringing. Ethiopian parents in gerneral instill in their kids/childern to be polite/respectful to others at the sametime to be prudent. Where did this Tsadabewuch came from? What is in their brain? If they oppose someone’s idea/opinion, they should so in a civilized manner. It’s clear that their mission is to destroy Kinijit which is of course impossible. That said, under the courgeous & farsighted leadership of Eng. Hailu, Kinijit is moving forward to bring a brighter tomorrow for our beloved Ethiopia & its people.We will bury tribal politics for EVER FROM ETHIOPIA. ON IT’S GRAVE WE WILL BUILD A UNITED ETHIOPIA WHERE PEACE, DEMOCRACY, RULE OF LAW, HUMAN RIGHTS & DEVELOPMENT REIGN. DOWN W/TRIBAL POLITICS LONG LIVE ETHIOPIAN UNITY OUR MOTHERLAND WILL SHINE On October 23, 2007 at 5:49 pm Castro Said: Democracy in a Prison Setting: In the Garden of Eden Satan was using the FORM of a snake for his purposes, the snake tempted Eve to eat the fruit .God cursed him and commanded him to crawl on his belly . Brhanu tempted Shawel to sign pardon. This is what is agreed in prison we call it ADEMOCRACY. On October 23, 2007 at 7:06 pm amut amah Said: It amazes me why you guys do not talk about the EPRP split? Why so much vile for Kinijit? For Birtukan? For Birhanu? I think you are hopping with the demise of Kinijit EPRP will inherit the spoils. Wrong again!! Ethiopian do not accept secretive organizations such as EPRP or TPLF. I do not remember the last time you had a meeting and solicited comments from the public. when was the last time you had an election? I suspect before the TPLF? Most of you beleive your own lies. Such is the case about Birhanu being an agent of Berket, Meles etc. I know you are going to tell me ION. But ION is Iyasu’s project. Yes, Iyasu, aka Hama Tuma. The EPRP leader since he highjacked a cargo plane. He discouse is insults and namecalling. I guess with his father in-law elected for a second six year term I can understand that he wants to sabotage Kinijit. But his hate peddlers, I do not understand. They have stoped thinking. When he says jump, they ask how high? When he demands they shout, they scream. What a shame. It remids me of the commercial, ” a mind is a terrible thing to waste?” I understand EPRP is having a congress in the next couple of months. We already know the winners and the losers. The reasonable group will lose and the distructvie wing of EPRP will win. It controls all the money. On October 23, 2007 at 8:07 pm Asegedech Said: please Getachew live her alone.Is it Ferenjigna? Hey,the people of Ferenji, mind your besinuss let her stand and lead for all Ethiopians interest not for Ferenjoch.If they Ferenjoch join her she is definitly has more than enough intelegent to lead them too. On October 23, 2007 at 8:55 pm BW Said: This EpRp website might not post this view: Ato getachew: I remember when you are orchestrating Tigrian nationalism a couple years ago. You were raising issues that Amhara nationalist are dominating EEDN and Tigrains can afford to be a minority any more. That is fine with me but how did you get involved the same people you were accusing years ago. Remember professor Habte, Dr. Selameab and so on? This EpRp strategy which will help a dead organization. On October 23, 2007 at 8:58 pm Ati Said: Your website is useless!!!! On October 23, 2007 at 11:44 pm Z. Ferede Said: Dear Prof? Getachew, Please try to think as one genuine Ethiopian instead of taking side to one group which is hated by most Ethiopians and lost it support. By the way I am not member of any political party, and I have respect to Eng. Hailu Shawil for what he has done until now. But now it is over as he decided to be dictator and anti- Kinjit. He is the one who flame the difference instead of accepting his mistake. Coming to the main point about Ms. Birtukan’s comment, what is wrong with it? It is the groups around, the Kinjit website which is under the control of EPRP is spreading anti-Kinjit and and Anti-Tigrians. To be honest, it is the talk of individuals like Bidru Adem in April 2005 Meskel Square public gathering offended may tigrians by saying “Tigrewochin wode metubet enimelisachewlen” = “ Tigre wode mekele, eka wode Keble”. Just because of his speech I know that many Tigrians including my friends who were supporting Kinjit became against it. Still Bedru Abem and the like continued to damage Kinjit. But it is true that there are some trigirians who are working for woyane but not all. Not only Tigres, there are individuals working for EPRDF from all ethinic group who have astong economic and power advantage. Concerning Dr.Birhanu Nega, please leave him, let he work for his country. Whether you believe or not tt is Dr. Birhnue and his group who brought a big move in Ethiopian politics, the other guys including Eng. Hialu Shawel and the so called Lidetu (at one time) were there for several years without any significant influence on EPRDF. On October 24, 2007 at 2:09 am tg Said: Dear witer, I am sorry to say, but I have to say that your comment is full of frastration and self-confidence crisis. It is absolutely sad to waste your time in doing such “ZEBAZENKE” On October 24, 2007 at 3:37 am Bukai Said: Hello Guys, I think the ethiopian people identified an open minded leader who understands the real situation of ethiopia. For those of you who have simply been backbiting for wrong reason, I would like you to look back to the kind of politics currently underway in the country. Please stop your wrong work in the websites. Try to get together to win the Woyane gangs rather than fighting with each other. Bukai On October 24, 2007 at 5:48 am tesfa Said: Remember getachew, don’t be surpried by the hate mail from the berhanu clique, they are fully funded and organize, eventually truth will prevail, so be pataient, the majority of kinjit keadership will decide pretty soon on the dangourous mission of berhanu and his woyanre tugs please see one postimg above preteinig to suppotrt Kinjit but he cannot hide his “WOYnananet” by saying the fabricated charge of Tirge wode Mekele”, remember how Woyne was saying the same thing and interhawme etc, Berhanu agents ,( actually Woyne infrstructre and machinery is being utilized right now to destabilize Kinjit,) are accusing kinjt of bieng against Tigrayans, the same old story of persons who failed miserably with the Ethiopian people to sneak using lies , more lies and lies , like thier createor Woyane. One thing is clear:The Ethiopin people will certainly make posituve progress in the right direction , in spite of Berhanu and Lidetu trying to block this progress. towards democracy , freedom and tolerance, among the peopels of Ethiopia. one thing required is wise , honest and truthful and dedicated leadership and the strong spirit of popular resistance and unity aginst tryrants, and their bogymen. Remember it was the “lion of Ethiopia- Hailu Shawel who was the ROCK who stood all the way, unwaveranigly, against all the machinations of Woyane, a courageous man who dared treaded where others tremble and succumb—. His epic fight against Woyane makes him a legend in his own life time , in spite of the combined assualt on him by woyane, CIA, paid journalist, and the berahanu – Lidetua group, he has bebn unwavering in the pursdiut of the truth and freedom for his countryand peopldn th against ts woune, still singulary villified by Woyane day in and day out, but he is a solid rocjk , firm in his convictins that Ethiopa needs a brighter future imagine what would have happend to Kinjit if Berhanu had his way, he would be like Dr, beyne Petros or worse s, perhaps colluding with Berket simon, to arrest the progress of democracy in our country Ultimately we have to realize that the remarkable gains by Kinjit in the last couple of years are irreversable, whether Berhanu and Lidtu want to trample on it or not. KINJIT IS THE WAY ETHIOPIA FOREVER On October 24, 2007 at 6:40 am Germame Neway Said: This is FOR RENAGADE(bANDA,KEHADI} AMHA: Amha,you must be one of those who betrayed your friends before and now ready to serve for the highest bidder. Your ad nauseum attack on EPRP is a clear manfestation of guilt-ridden psycopath who is a dead man walking. You and fellows like you infiltrated Kinjit masqurading as “genuine supporters” and now your miscalculation back fired, you have to find a scapegoat as your former boss Fuhrer Mengistu. You wished all your miserable life for EPRP TO DISAPEAR. iT WILL NEVER HAPPPEN, AS LONG AS THE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE ARE FREE FROM DESPOTIC RULERS AND WANNABE SUCCESORS. EPRP WILL HAVE ITS DAY TO BE JUDJED INFORNT OF THE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE GAINST ITS ACCUSERS LIKE YOU AND WAR CRIMNALS AND CAPTAINS OF RED TERROR CAMPAIGNS. I AM QUITE SURE YOU AND YOUR FELLW TRAVLLERS DO NOT WANT THAT DAY TO COME. BUT UNFORTUNATLEY NO FORCE CAN STOP IT FROM EVER HAPPENING. THE DAY OF RECKONING IS APPROCHING. On October 24, 2007 at 6:57 am Helina Said: Germame you have said it very well, Woyane is scared of EPRP , they know how mcuh grassroots support it has in Ethiopia, Otherwise the Berhanu Propaganda machine would not open such a massive camapaing and media front against EPRP at this time. As you can even see how they want to invade even this web site, the are engaged 24 hours a day in manufacture of hate and propaganda against the choice of the Ethiopain people The Berhanu clique has this nightmare of KINJIT- HIBRET coming to power in Ethiopia throuigh the ballot box, which will be a reality some time in the future Alas You can’t keep the future from happening!! Democracy will prevail in Ethiopia!!! On October 24, 2007 at 10:01 am Zeleke Said: this is a responce for those who blame EPRP there is no any anti ethiopian element muscel that is untouch the back and heads of EPRP. kEJIBI,CIA,the AREB world,inside also the dead military junta,TPLF and all of banda who were engaged in attaking of EPRP mutualy as well as indpendently.the most astonishing parts of the story for geniune ethiopian is the existance of EPRP by surmounting and even for some of them by defeating.the attaking tragedy is still on contiunation from knowing this strong parts of EPRP.I am quite sure as most of you labeled me as a member of EPRP.trust me i am not.but i could not denied this fact even which is recognized by its enemy. Kinijit it is a three years old party,who have nosiginificant couragous leaders except Engineer Hailu and some others.it is a party who is filled by renageds and vulnarable by simple fist.what gave the strength of Kinijit is the hatred of ethiopian toward TPLF. out of this, kinijit is not organizationally strong exccept engineer Hailus organization MEAD. ethiopian all of us who need our freedom please give a proper respect for EPRP.its leaders have untaped leadership potential.infact our enemys know very well this fact.that is why they are unleash huge propaganda force against them. On October 24, 2007 at 12:29 pm Helina Said: germame aging thank you , berhanu andco are scared ofa powerful alliance f Kinjit, HIBRET and EPRP, the geniue sons and duthes of ethiopia , who acn stand any and all adversaries, Everyone , including Bands Berhanu and Lidetu knows this as a fact. On October 24, 2007 at 3:55 pm Dinka Said: This is typical of EPRP when you see somebody is getting one step ahead of you, you lose your mind and become like a mad dog that bites any creature moving round it! you are what you are and that is the way it will remain.Sorry to that but it is true.

I donot think he will look back to be destructed from his mission. leave him alone. go forward with your own best way for the development of ethiopia and the ethiopian people. On October 24, 2007 at 9:22 pm Terengo Argaw Said: Those who are trying to defended Berhanu Nega/the rest of his group clearly show who theyr’e. Either they are paid wayne agents/and or Lawodachew yaderu. It’s open secret Berhanu has been wining & dining w/woyane for the last 16 yrs. He NEVER raised any protest when the Wayne murdered/imprisoned thousands of innocent Ethiopaians before Kinijit. In fact he came rushing from US to take a teaching post when Zeawi summarily expelled 42 university professors. Can anyone give testimony he was fighting for democrcy before the election of 2005? It was the courageous Eng.Hailu & his unwavering stand against the tribalist Zenawi regime and the HEROIC ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE that brought the victory of 2005 election. LISTEN UP those who are Berhanu’s followers, leadership requires courage,perseverance, integrity & Vision which one can see in Eng. Hailu. HE IS A PROVEN LEADER. GET OVER IT. Berahanu & his entourage came for the party- to ripe what others harvest. To be a leader one has to earn it. In the final analysis the truth shall prevail & the Ethiopian people will be free from the Wayne. Long Live Ethiopian Unity Ethiopia Will SHINE FOR EVER On October 25, 2007 at 3:04 am Sekokaw Beza Said: I kmow i am to late to comment on this topic, I have a question for the so called birtukan that one time i admire her a lot. My question is how do you know how many of the tatal audiance were tigrean from any one of your meeting? I think you were calling Ethiopian not Amhara or Tigre or any tribe. Is your ethinic back ground may pull you behind when you reach in Minesota or what? you better stand for Ethiopia as a whole. let me say one thing when i see all this divission i do thank my god that CUD didn’t take power.

On October 25, 2007 at 4:08 am mankelkilot Said: I read the comments. They remind me of one important saying: AHIYAWUN FERTO DAWULAWUN! Why should EPRP sabotage Kinijit, if Kinijit is so invincible and so loved by the people of Ethiopia? Why speed to blaming the EPRP for every mistake Kinijit makes. I am no apologist for the EPRP and I am in no mood to reward losers who ally themselves with the designs of their American sponsors. Ethiopia will cast off its sellout politicians, all, including those pimping in the diaspora in the name of liberating Ethiopia. You cannot tap dance with the EPRDF and tell us we are for you! Ethiopians cannot be fooled by these one-eyed pliticians–who can only see the DOLLARS!! On October 25, 2007 at 4:24 am Pumpkin Said: Interviews with Ethiopian Leaders: Inside out, There are two types of leaders in this world, and each act with two separate agendas. Good leaders are people who are willing to sacrifice their careers for the sake of the people they serve. Bad leaders are willing to sacrifice the people for the sake of their careers. By determining early on which category a person falls into is the best way for you to determine whether a person will listen to you, or will manipulate you. For the last one month or we had interviews, discourses and discussions, what ever the case, apparently most of our leaders including. Their main problems observed of the interviewee are they are not good listeners 1) Fast to defend and talk about even a slight mistake of grammar 2) Losing the objective of leadership, decide fate of people rather than listen their cry 3) They are self defensive 4) Express personal opinions rather than the peoples opinion 5) Talking their own agenda rather than the peoples agenda 6) Bias or stereotyping 7) Boasting about self esteem on media Lip service and saving face value 9) Never ask question but always ready to answer 10) Informative no stand or problem solving speeches .A wise leader might say, “Listen to everyone, then make decisions that are best for the group. The key to leading people is to reach them and, believe it or not, the key to reaching them is to listen. The leader that does not listen is only a leader due to resources and not character, and thus is not truly a leader at all. The old debate axiom is, “He who does not know his opponents arguments does not know his own.” Take this to heart. A good leader knows when to admit he is wrong. That is why most politicians are puppets instead of real leaders, they always choose image over improvement. The bible says what makes the best leader… when the Disciples asked Jesus which of US is the greatest and will sit at your right hand in heaven, Jesus replied, “The one who is the least among you, will be the greatest.” By this, He meant that to lead is to serve and you cannot serve if you don’t listen completely to the desires and questions of those who you represent. The best leaders neither assume, nor do they treat others with disdain for their point of view. Of course not all advice or information is of use, but a leader will make even those individuals feel a part of the team, and in turn mentor them when their ideas and suggestions are not in line with the goals of the organization. Sometimes a leader has to decide that some interviews are not good for the whole of the organization and treat them accordingly… and this is a trait of good listening also since bad information that wastes time and resources is part of a leaders decision making process. Leaders must attempt to understand the viewpoints of those providing the feedback before they make a judgment. If the feedback is valuable, it is critical they should abandon their own behaviors accordingly. A good leader will ask follow up questions to drill down to the core of the issue. Then they begin the process of problem solving. However, a truly great leader will ask questions which lead the other person into discovering their own solutions to the issue. Sometimes this isn’t possible, but when it is, the results are empowering Summarized by Pumpkin.

If it had been for EPRP our country and our PEOPLE will not have been in this mess. Still, EPRP is the only organization who will free ETHIOPIA and ETHIOPIANS. LONG LIVE ETHIOPIA||| LONG LIVE EPRP||| On October 25, 2007 at 6:47 am aha! Said: The writer has been perceptive in identifying/interpreting Ms. Birtukan speech. Albeit, they did not resolve they were expected to resolve under Eng. Hailu’s leadership. Instead they rushed ahead and were greeted by Berhanu Mewa- Andargachew Tisge faction. Not only did they fail to accomplish one of their major objectives, they made several mistatements, one of them is shown in the article above of an incinsere appology by falsely puting the blame on the website. This, is one of the many blunders the vice chairwoman and Dr.Berhanu made that revealed their thought process and hidden agenda. It is in a sense good they came ahead of the their leader and runoff from city to city and made all these public speeches, defending their actions. Otherwise how else would a dicerning public both abroad and in Ethiopia would know, and some individuals confirm their current position with evidence as well as their background and experience. Ethiopians are looking /should be looking outside their ethnicty to save this country from falling apart and to gain their individual freedom to speak, to protest peacefully, to publish,to move freely,to reside anywhere and most importantly to gain their freedom from the totalitarian regime, by calling for a referendum on the current regime, under the auspices of the UN, and International observers. Anything else is window dressing, except HR 2003. On October 25, 2007 at 12:41 pm Selam Said: The time for unmasking Berhanu Nega is now, Actully his actions are reveling to us his true nature, we have to thank him for that. He wants to gain acceptance and alos political; power from Woyane by sacrifcing the original objectives of Kinijt On October 25, 2007 at 3:15 pm Pumpkin Said: Will Kinijit win Survival of the fittest? Voters are becoming more demanding of their elected representatives, and that puts pressure on parties to adjust their policies the public will. Those that don’t will fail. The last two years has been a moment of hottest debate in Ethiopian politics. If we have good leaders it is time to capitalize on the formation of the nucleus of the structure of the Ethiopian government. Be it Ethnic or National government. It has been noticed that briefly there are tendencies of the Left wing, the right wing and the Center. The green party although negligible but could be important in the future. It has been also observed there is a total ignorance and lack of experience on how these parties interact. There is also lack on how to compete and governing policy of the parties, it does not mean that the center should rule always as it is a meddler. All the three structures are important for the very survival of Ethiopia. The question who to rule depends both on the domestic regional and international arena. And the parties should present their realistic views to the public. Not a theoretical attractive view. He who speaks or writes better should not be considered as the best. May 2005 the Ethiopian people have said no to the ruling party. If there was a new government would things have gone as we were told during the election campaign as promised. In Ethiopia power has been prestige and source of economic satisfaction of rulers. Should the parties struggle for power or lead the 70 million people? What we the public want from the parties is that to remove our :- Agony, Anarchy, Burial, Crime, Cry, Deception, Death, Detention, Deterioration, Disintegration, Displacement, Dispute, Davison, Divorce, Evil, Failure, Fear. Hate, Helplessness, Hunger, Ignorance, Illness, Inequality, Inferiority, Inimicality, Killing, Loneliness Misunderstanding, Negativity. Orphaned, Pain Poverty, Punishment, Famine, Retardation, Rivalry, Slavery, Theft, Submissive, Torture, Up rise, War, Weakness … People do not trust EPRDF .Of course certainly EPRDF is not our savior as the above list is aggravating through manipulation, spying, bribing, misleading, wrong advising, intervening directly or indirectly into other parties affair derived through power thirst leaders the desire to rule. The current division of CUD is results of such evil doing. The CUD Pilgrimage to America is near concluding. The CUD main dogmas are one country and one people, still there is determination among Ethiopians at large. And diaspora hence apparently fit to survive. But the credibility of some of the leaders is declining unfit may be they dropout or ready for replacement? Cleavage will damage not only the very survival of CUD but the country Above all if we are going to win and continue as one country we need loyalty of the parties, their members and leaders. One has to swear to loyalty of the Ethiopian flag without loyalty there is no trust. We need true Ethiopians. We do not need CIA, KJB,…and Eritreans. On October 25, 2007 at 3:41 pm sunny Said: Who are the handlers of Berhanu -CIA Woyane ALamoudin and his greed for money and polituical power at the expense and death of the poverty strikn and poepl who have been brutlized by two monstrous dicattaors in the past near 40 years How did berhanu get to where he is now – through the active manupulation of the American emabssy, Woyanne, especially berket simon and Andargache Tsige- the man fro Woyane jungle days whao hsas the msiion of destroing Kinjit right now On October 26, 2007 at 2:06 am GETACHEW REDA Said: From GETACHEW REDDA To the Dear brother who was talking about EEDN.- I have tow things to say. 1-One is for you And 2-the other is for those TPLF fig leafs. So, my intention is to boost the discussion among the opportunists, fanatics, liars, whose sole is completely sold and devoted for ignorant feudalist like that of Meles/sbhat loyalists and those of us on the other side of truth who are challenging Feudal boy, Mels & Sebhat to open free media and court to open charges against the leaders of TPLF for the crime done against humanity, our families who were been tortured, murdered, kidnapped, barbarically burned live on fire and thousands of our Tegadelti Tegaru’s blood wasted to water the life of few feudal TPLF leaders who simply took them as god given slaves died for them in the name of fake liberation to liberate Teritrea/Isayas and put Meles/Sebhat to power! No matter how Americans, Chinas protect Meles and his cliques to exploit the country, I know from my heart, one day all those mercenaries with blood on their hand will face justice and bright day in front me. That day will not be far. The Benshangul, the Somali, the Oromo, the Tigrayans, the Amhra, the Gurage, the Millions abused by TPLF are exposing the tremendous injustice carried by Meles government all over the world including in the congress in TPLF ‘s surrogate “America”. We were few, now we are millions and millions and it just became easier for us everyday getting better while the Amhara phob TPLF are exploring slowly what they were been hiding all those years now start to wear Ethiopianism flag after the Bdime conflict! Since then they are wearing it! We won – count one- it was called CHERK!REMEMBER? The struggle will continue, if we die others will take over. It this merit that kept the torch brighter and active still. Coming to you brother- , I saw you mentioned me how I was gathering years back Tigrayans on EEEDN discussion forum against Amharans such as of yours SelameAb and the like and asked me how got into this bashing TPLF? The first thing I like to tell you I this – – A fanatic Tigrayanphobia like you and the people you mentioned are racists who hate Tigrayans who knew the twisting turning dance of chauvinism. If you are a man of truth, you should have bring that poem of his son what he wrote about the dry barren Tigray from Switzerland. It was you and your likes why I decided to stop entering EEDN. If there was a man who I detested very sourly and dislike to talk- it was Tesfaye mengistu the man who is here with this article that we are discussing on Debteraw.com. Him and me went head to head many times with his crew, but I am a man who never holds things on my heart. And here you see me right now at this moment came supporting and encouraging Tesfaye Mengistyu’s view on this forum. If I was as you think I am, I could have the one who should attack tesfaye Mengistu the way me and him were on EEDN. But, I respect his view and I have to respect when he is right. Period! But for you to come up here and ask me with out mentioning what your likes posted on EEDN about the Tigray people and our ancestors in Tigray is not eloquent for a person like yourself who think himself as God man! So if you think, I will stop defending Tigrayans because I hate the mercenary Banda TPLF who landlocked Ethiopia, you must be out of your mind. It this uniqueness that kept me going this far. I do not support because some one is somebody, I support him/her according to his merit and genuine intentions! 2- Coming to the other Amhara-phob opportunist fanatic Tigrayans who cry hard when their bloodthirsty leaders are challenged. Since, Let me start my view thanking those who supported me and gave me the courage to walk up to this and those who opposed me or deny my Ethiopiawinet or Tigrawaynet all due to your self delusion. Above all, I will stand firm as I did before and firmest than ever to those Fanatical Tigrayan TPLF of Mels and Sebhat Boys who refused to see the abuse of our people and chose to serve the Half Eritrean breed of Raisee Haile Tesfamariam family Seraye Awraja and the branch tree of DeKibaro and Seraye – Meles and Sebhat Nega the die hard Ertitreans than the Eritreans -who brought unacceptable death and distraction for our brotherly sisterly people of on both sides of the Mereb River still remain unaccountable. I like to make it absolutely clear that we have so many unanswered questions which neither we nor the families of those who lost their loved once want forget and forgive not only now in the last 16 years but even the time of all TPLF leaders were leaders, judges, torturers and decision makers in the jungle. They are all responsible for the death, imprisonment, captive slaves/soldiers made to vanish, poisoned captives, TPLF Tegadelti/fighters, priests, Diakones farmers, -execution, their cows property robbed and the of so many lifes atrocities, blunders, cruelties. Remember, many of the so-called Tigrayan intellectuals and scholars remain silent or became opportunists for too long remained part of the conspiracy of silence (in fact many of them were open supporters of the racist TPLF against Amhra). The sad thing is, even those who were silent were to scare to even ask some fundamental questions that might bring about an end to the suffering of our people. As one Eritrean Ethiopian scholar said –As far as we are concerned, we have never given up hope. We had always thought that if that this generation of Eritreas doesn’t want to face the truth, the next generation would be compelled to do so. Our hope the fore has never been to give up hope. One day, we had hoped that truth and justice will come and we think it is coming”- Ethiopia will prevail!!! On October 26, 2007 at 2:49 am KEYET AMETUT?

Why and what was the objectve. hre i want also to crticize engineer hail to allow such a disastrous didescions prmpted by the gang of four – What wa the objective ofthat descion” we are witneeisng some of it- Beahne wants to use her as his mouth peice, since he knwos very ll he and Andargache have littel suppot in Ethiopia , That was why all that parting for bertukan after their relase Some indcations are that the Temsgen gropu is working actively with Berhanu to undermine Kinjit and succumb to the rule of Woyane unreservedly. Imagie what would have happend to the US congress resoultion? without the firm resistance to the dicattaor shown by By Engineer hailau, and the majority of kinjit and the Ethiopian people. If Berhanu had his way everthing would have been smooth for Woyane by now, clainimg democracy, keping the ethiopin peple in opoveerty and darknes and misery That is why all of us have to be really, really careful on the lie manfactring machines tht are increasingly being installed across cyberspace by Berhanu and Andaargachew. On October 26, 2007 at 5:26 am Zeleke Said: One of the weaknesses of Ethiopian opposition’s party is lake of professional fighters as well as full time strugglers .because they do not have professionals men and women as well as professional leaders, they could not been seen to draft and implement a good strategy that kneel down TPLF. Because, they are amateur or part time strugglers, they had not been seen when outline sound means of struggle and forms of organization that is suitable for their means of struggle. Because, they are not professional strugglers, their means of struggle is not flexible according to the tactic and strategy of our enemy. The question is who is professional political organization within the opposing bloc? I am quite sure you may have got the answer that, which this organization is, before I precede to the answer. That is EPRP. As we knew, EPRPhave untapped potential within the opposition bloc, unfortunately we could not utilize their potential as results of the intolerance habits of the opposition group, to compromise today, and to compete each other tomorrow. On October 26, 2007 at 6:01 am Moring for Ethiopia Said: Remmebr this : Berhanu Nega has always been a darling of AIGA FORUM web site? does’t this ring a bell in your ears? is this not self explanatory? Who was reciving the masive hate proganda and lies of woyane and AIGA ? all Woyane propagand was tagetd at Engineer hailu Shwel . all along AIGA as lamenting why Berhanu shopul suffr the fate of hailu unnecessraily while he can come out in te open and submit to them . pleas refr to AIGs posing on berhanu nega”. AIGA were frank in always saying that Berhanu has to break from Kinjit and Hailu. Do get theirmessage . Now they are happy as things have come out in the open.. Berhanu knows that he has no policial base in Ethiopia,allhis policial activites are inthe US adnwithUs emabvasy in Ethiopia and he wants to serve his master -Woyane and CIA , by trying to destroy Kinjit Be aware of his objectives- he is not concernd about the poverty and misery of the Ethiopian people , he wants to be in the limlight and cover up for Woyane disastrous record of the past 18 years. Agin remember how Berhanu, Berket Simon and Andargacehw are linked-all former EPRP members, who gave up the struggle for the liberation of the Ethioipan people and joined Woyane, because they don’t have the strength of charater to stand for principles but rather seek the favour fo the current political power/ winner The trimuvarte are attempting to destroy the glorious kinjt party , will the succed ? well it depends on hoew the Ethiopian people understand it, and the fact on the ground is that the majority of the people used to Know who Berhanu was and now have confirmed their earlier suspicions. on the other hand if they succed this will be the first time an internet induced propaganda machine succeds in denying the people of Ethiopia the freedom thsy some much desire. We are at the cross-roads On October 26, 2007 at 7:26 am Negede Habesha Said: I have such a weird experience that there are a group of people dedicated to bash and trash anything EPRP or even a passer-by around EPRP. In fact I had lost an elder brother who dedicated himself for the common good of the Ethiopian people under the banner of EPRP. I remember my brother who was selfless, hard working and bright. He was by far older than his age in analyzing and synthesizing complicated issues instantly. Along his friends, he was a devoted everything for the benefit of his country under the leadership of EPRP. With such background I am not green about EPRP and the painstaking struggle it accomplished. It is noteworthy that somebody can’t simply preach fallacies or brain-wash me nor dent my respect to my gallant brother and his glorious abode, The EPRP. Indeed the more I saw they corner EPRP (the party that rallied millions, the party that pays in blood and flesh, the party that never ever betrayed Ethiopia and the party that commands extraordinary persistence), the more they grow depreciating, rustic, asinine and hoodlumish to my sense of judgment. The rush to denigrate Getachew Reda’s soul-searching article purely demonstrates the rough behavior of some elements who simply wished to see failed EPRP at any cost. Dear Ethiopians, when I came across a dictionary, I found amazing parallel with those groups who are dedicated their life for one purpose – bashing EPRP. I found them fitting at least up to stage 5 and time will te

  68. Srom Elijah-

    This to the fanatic Islam OLF “Sabatta”: you were asked by to asnwer issues from Negede and Elijah for you to answer them, but

    Why are you afraid to deal with the issue you were asked and wanted to attack Oromo Orthodox christians? It is not going to help your mind untill you deal with reality.Untill you deal with the issues you were asked to answer, the usuall running to other subject is not valid. It only showed how little issues you could present to your readers. You OLF always run to something elese as a cover to escape from the issue challenged you. Grow up and face the issue as a man. Do not eat a stone like irrational dog when it gets visious than to deal with subject it angered the dog deal with issue. A long time a ago issues raised by Getachew Reda to OLF remained unanswered and agagin now, we are wittnesing for the seconfd time OLF guys running like a scared Dogs. Common be a man, don’t be a child! Stand for the issues you are asked to asnwer!!! Here is the issue for the second time, answer it!

    “Many Oromo nationalists gave these “leaders” the benefit of the doubt and kept tugging along for a long time. There were people, however, most of whom were members of the OLF, who had understood the sinister motives of their leaders from the get go. Those who spoke up were murdered when possible and systematically marginalized when not. Among those murdered were Nadhi Gammada, Jamal Robale and Baro Tumsa”.

    Eነዚህ ድርጅታዊ ችግሮች በሙሉ ፓርቲውን ሊጠቅሙ በሚችሉ መንገዶች Eንዲታረሙ ለማድረግ የIሕAፓ Aስቸኳይ ልዩ ጉባዔ ከOክቶበር 26 –29, 2007 ባለው ጊዜ ውስጥ ተካሂዷል። ነገር ግን ይህ Aምባገነናዊ ቡድን Aባላቱ በረጋና በሰከነ መንፈስ ተወያይተው ጠቃሚ መፍትኄዎችን ለመሻት Eንዳይችሉ በፈጠራቸው በርካታ መሰናክሎች የተነሳ ስምምነት ላይ መድረስ Aልተቻለም። ስለዚህም ከፍተኛ ጉዳት ከመድረሱ በፊት IሕAፓን ለማዳን ዴሞክራሲያዊ መተክሎቸን በተቋማት ምሥረታ ለማጠናከር፤ ሕዝባዊና Aገራዊ ዓላማዎችን ለማስተካከል Eንዲችል መዋቅሩንና ሕገ-ደንቡን Aሻሽሎና Aመራር መርጦ በተሳካ ሁኔታ ጉባዔውን ደምድሟል።
    ይህ IሕAፓን ከAምባገነኖች ቁጥጥር Aላቆና ዴሞክራሲያዊ በሆነ መልኩም በትግሉ የማስቀጠል ውሳኔ ፓርቲውን ፍትኃዊና ዴሞክራሲያዊ ለማድረግ Aባላቱ Eስካሁን ላካሄዱት Eልህ Aስጨራሽ ትግል ታላቅ ድል Aብሳሪ ዜና ነው። Aገራችንን ከጥፋት ለማዳን የትግል ድርሻቸውን ለማበርከት ለሚሹ፤ ነገር ግን ፓርቲው ውስጥ በቆየው ጸረ-ዴሞክራሲያዊ Aሠራር የተነሣ ተመልሰው መቀላቀል ላልቻሉት የቀድሞ Aባላቱም ታላቅ የምሥራች ነው። በተለያዩ ምክንያቶችም ዛሬ የዚህ ፓርቲውን ዴሞክራሲያዊ የማድረግ Eንቅሥቀሴ Aካል ሳይሆኑ በAምባገነናዊው ቡድን ቁጥርር ስር ለቀሩ የድርጅቱ Aባላትም የተሻለ የመታገያ Aማራጭ ይሆናል።

  70. Above read the statement from the democratic wing of EPRP.

  71. Dear Amha’
    i can’t read the jibberish above. Is it Geez? I do not know if it is only me or others do encounte the same difficulty to read, but, on my part- I can’t read it. Can you sumerize it in English font what the message is all about?

  72. Okay. I got the information what you wanted to address. Sad, but so what? Nothing remains the same. What you have to understand is the public should not be easy for elements who wants to be easly manupulated for those who wants to steal the degnity of the nation for the sake of harmony and get along with the new opposition political partoies who tehy too did’t define TPLF as a tool to the emperialist colonizers. You hear Berhanu and the rest as TPLF not enemy but military dictators. We believe those who take TPLF not enemy but Ethiopian party- are part of the much of the havoc who are giving hands to the nation’s pride doomed. We will still stand with Iyasu Alemayehu- no question he is the best man to tell TPLF as TPLF Emperialsit Stoog. I like the others, but, I respect their view, if they want to go along with the rest of the new Emperialis culture of symbol. good for them. But, I hope they think this road slowly before they insert themselves with the Emperialist stos. Our struggle is long, but Ethiopia will prevail!

  73. Dear Ethiopian patriots and friends

    This is not a time for words, it is a time for action , Ethiopia is at the cross roads.

    There should be actions on the ground to expose Andargachew and Berhanu Nega as the real agents of Woyane.

    Remember that While Dr Taye was incarcerated in Woyane prison for over 6 years, for simply defending Ethiopia’s national interests and Ethiopian values, Andargachew was partying with Woyane and plundering Addis Abeba with his family member – the notorious Tefera Walwa, .

    Ethiopia shall prevail.

  74. ANDARGACHEW THE GRASSHOPPER

    See the metamorphosis of a chameleon bent on getting the limelight, at the expense of principles, friends, the truth, the love of people, tolerance, hope, fairness , justice, and trust.

    EPRP
    Woyane
    Amhara nationalist
    Pretender Kinjit- Woyane Plant
    Anti Kinijit
    Woyane
    Who and What will he be tomorrow.?

    Remember this

    Remember that While Dr Taye was incarcerated in Woyane prison for over 6 years, for simply defending Ethiopia’s national interests and Ethiopian values, Andargachew was partying with Woyane and plundering Addis Abeba with his family member – the notorious Tefera Walwa,
