I AM ASHAMED OF MY ETHIOPIA BUT I HOPE THE ETHIOPIA I KNEW WILL RISE FROM TIGRAI ONCE AGAIN AS IT DID BEFORE
November 12, 2020
I am ashamed of my Ethiopia, because, it has become a country for which I share little value with. To date, Ethiopia is run by a treasonous madman who has taken the steps of ethnic cleansing—after declaring war in cahoots with a foreign country—Eritrea. Thousands of Tigrean Ethiopians are encamped in undisclosed locations. Some are apprehended and taken as hostages by policemen of Abiy Ahmed in Addis Ababa. Many more are under house arrest and many others are living in the shadows—haunted by fear of the unknown. All that just because they are members of a Tigrean nation in Ethiopia. Ethiopia is no more the house that it was for the Tigrean nation. Instead, the country that I love and sacrificed dearly for its betterment is now the adobe of its utmost enemy—the brutal megalomaniac dictator of Eritrea, Isaias Afewerki. I do not know Ethiopia anymore for it is not the country that I knew.
My Ethiopia that I knew stood for the values I hold dearly. It stood for the equality of nations and nationalities and the right to self-determination up to cessation. It stood to protect its sovereignty, with deep-seated fierceness, shared only by few other countries in the world. But now, my Ethiopia is being screwed daily by duet megalomaniacs—an Eritrean dictator and an Ethiopian traitor. The duets’ aim is clear. Their message is loud. Kill the Ethiopia whose uncontested root is Axum, Tigrai.
Who better to target than the Tigrean People Liberation Front (TPLF), whose only might is derived not from the number of tools of wars it possesses—but from the true causes of freedom that it promised to keep. That is; at the urging of its indignant foremothers and forefathers.
You see; might without true cause is enervating. But true cause without might needs only the accretion of indignation. The indignant Weyanay, the foremother and forefather of TPLF, paved the way for the equality of nations and nationalities of Ethiopia. That time has come time again. Sooner or later, the Tigrean people of Ethiopia will let history repeat itself. Because they have been there and they know a thing or two. And it is my hope that the Ethiopia I knew will rise from Tigrai once again as it did before.
