body guards during scuffle with refugees must have been the most embarrassing moment of his life.

He lost his wallet, a note book and his glasses while sprinting like a cheetah.
The warlord was in South Africa to meet TPLF cadres and supporters at Hyatt hotel in Rose bank near Johannesburg when angry refugees and members of the Ethiopian community association gate crashed the gathering which was being attended by less than 50 TPLF cadres out of an estimated 3,000 belived to be living in South Africa.

The rest stayed away fearing the opposition and the reaction of the South African government which unknowingly offered them political asylum.

As the ruling minority junta continues to suffer total rejection by Ethiopians at home and abroad and as guerrilla activities flaring up in northern part of the country, Tedros Adhanom was trying to allay fears that the junta is collapsing when the sound of “freedom, freedom! Let our voice be heard! Death to the TPLF!” began to reverberate inside and outside of the hall.

Realizing the huge presence of the opposition the warlord then panicked and sneaked out through the back door and dashed towards the car with his driver sprinting after him but unable to catch up.

Few refugees gave a mock chase amid laughter and excitement enjoyed by South African on lookers, hotel security guards and staff members of the hotel.

“Your foreign Minister is fit but a coward.” A female hotel employee joked with the Horn Times reporter.

“Look how this decayed junta is scared of its own people. We didn’t come here to make a citizen’s arrest, we are here to confront the warlord about issues of human rights, absconding with his tail between his legs is what we got as an answer.” A refugee who cannot be named for fear of attack on his family back home told the Horn Times.

However, after the shameful exit of the warlord and his entourage a dramatic moment took place at the very same hotel.

The Ginbot-7, and Oromo People Liberation Front (OLF) members together with Muslim Ethiopians and members of the Ethiopian community held an emotional meeting, reaching agreement to stand as one people in the face of increased TPLF atrocities on Ethiopians back home.

The refreshments bought by the Ethiopian embassy for the warlords and TPLF members were consumed by the demonstrators and all TPLF flags and emblems including a huge picture of the dead cannibal Meles Zenawi were confiscated by the refugees.

The meeting was concluded late afternoon by driving past the Ethiopian embassy in Pretoria, about 75 kms away from Rose bank, denouncing the ongoing crack down on Muslim protesters .

The terror smitten warlord was still inside the Ethiopian embassy with handful diehard TPLF supporters by the time of going to the press.



Unity of Oromo Struggle is a priority The Oromo want dignity, self-expression, and self-governance. The Oromo want their voices to be heard. The Oromo want sovereignty They want to live together at peace with their neighbors, who themselves also live in freedom exercising their own sovereignty.The struggle for independence will continue until the Oromo question gets proper and just response. A well organized liberation struggle and the spirit of Oromummaa will save the nation’s unity and identity from later day detractors. Long Live Free Oromiyaa!!Down with Colonial forces and their lackeys!!

  1. Everything was right except the line that said ” expressing solidarity with tge most persecuted ethnic ahmaras’ ‘ to legitimize this article this line has to be corrected to’ ‘ ethnic oromos and Muslims’ ‘
    Just as background the Oromos are the long standing victims of every Ethiopian regimes since time. The tplf currently is holding onto power by dividing the tribes in Ethiopian after a fall out with the ahmaras who would swear never to release the Oromo out of oppression.
    I loved your article but I would highly encourage you to read about the Oromo people.
    Thanks for the laughter

  2. Can somebody listen to Sinke and make appropriate correction about this article? Or it was the intention of the writer to exaggerate the suffering of Amharas who by the way inhumanly ruled and destroyed Oromos for more than 110 years before TPLF. I am sensing the writer’s strong support for Ginbot-7, which has public and hidden agenda to dismantle any struggle for Oromo cause. I support the writter’s freedom of expression but I am wondering his or her intentions with regard to the struggle of Oromo people. We might be facing a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
