Before 22 years:
I grow up in small town with my “colorful” friends whose his father and mother are from Eritrea, Mendefera, another friend his father from Eritrea Kessela ,Mother from Ethiopia Wollega Hro Guduru, other 2 friends father from Tigray Axum and Mother from Wollga Mendi. As young friends we were happy and free from any evil thinking about each other. We have been living in love and joy; I don’t remember a single hostile day among us, except childish quarreler immediately dropped. This is just to bring back a good memory of that day. My feeling of that day about the situation in Eritrea and Tigray was not different from what I am feeling about my country today. That day I was highly concerned about the” civil war” in Eritrea and Tigray. I was questioning why Derge doesn’t allow for peace dialogue. Because of this reasons I have put myself out of sight to not participate in to that day free military services.
After 22 years:
As we all know, finally the ethnic based “revolutions” carried in most part of the country completed and have introduced fundamental change in Ethiopia. The changes were followed by opening of new constitution, arrangements of federal political system and establishment of 1 big and other 9 ”small” governments. The Big government is not the federal one. No! I am mentioning TPLF ruled “empire” federal system. The Big one is now the Tgray government. This is undeniable, because of so many facts that I can bring under this article, which is not the case of my today article. To give a dote example; the economic sector is under the control of few ethnic members. Remember the economic sector I mentioned here is the past 22 year’s economic sector. Just simply visit someone from your village affiliated to TPLEF and check the following indicators.
To be honest today we are living totally in different Ethiopia and “no one” is ready to bring back the old day good memory for the betterment of our today and future because of the evil political seed germinated in the country and growing selfishness in TPLF villages. This is a tragedy. Much selfishness and greed for wealth accumulation from our brother’s side has changed our social values. Our “Tigray” brothers would like to continue to be dominant in every aspects of our life. They don’t care about our “old day” attachments, free from ethnic based feelings we have been sharing on the civil and evil war of that day, secretly shared resources, ideas based on firmly established brotherhoods/ sisterhoods. Regardless of all evil attempts made in the past 22 years to divide us along ethnic political line and attitudes, I am still confident that most of our Tigray brothers and sisters are sharing the same feeling of that day or must work hard to recover it.
Calmly please evaluate the past 22 years overall situations of our country, the majority of Ethiopians have denied basic human rights for which most of our brothers and sisters are sacrificed for. Selfishness sentiment from our “Tigray” brothers are keeping working intensively and aggressively to make all of us slave of our home country. Our politics, struggle and aspiration for democracy is at grave. In the past 10 years new laws are crafted and applied to limit and incriminate our” natural movements, aspirations, determinations, thinking, developments etc”. Our genuine contribution to the development of our nation and homeland is, discouraged, neglected, will be incriminated or systematically protected by TPLF brutal political system. Our brothers and sisters are sentenced a decades and above because of their political thinking and independent attitudes. According to Derge, the yesterday “petro dollar looters” “prisoners”, “terrorists”, “dangers elements of the country”, TPLF members, are using the same terminology and sentences at their court to incriminate , to keep our peace loving brothers and sisters like Bekele Gerba, Eskinder Nega, Riot Alemu, many other thousands of Ethiopians in prisons. This is a painful experience for which a human being with healthy consciences does not tolerate. Therefore,
These are important issues protect us from “starting from zero syndromes” and not to be trapped in the middle of “back to square one journey syndrome”, which is usually end up with “stacked in the vicious circle” gambling.
God bless Ethiopia and the nation
