  1. amhara elites are typical example of jealousy and bigotry. They hate TPLf because of their origin as Tegarus. During derge regime, we see people from the same subcity and village in government offices and religious organizations. religious institutions were filled by people from Gonder when Abune Merkorios was the Patriarch of Ethiopia. Calling every hardworking man a thieve is the most prevalent attitude in amhara region. In Ethiopia mainly in amahara kilil(region)They accuse a rich man as if he stole the replica of the Ark of covenant or any precious religious item from the church , burying herbs, or doing some satanic or stuffs related to magicians , etc They donot like you if you own some distinct talent or riches .How could we live with these people and abandon our children to bleed and die consequently . It is like for a cactus to stay along with a thorny plant and get pricked , pierced and bleed all the time as long as the thorny plant sways back and forth – amhara elites never stop driven by their own ego and disrupt our lives and development we have earned through hard working. They go against almost with every tribe in Ethiopia-disgraced land . ye ende nitsuhan hiwot kemitefa ,etiyopia anata yifres
    የአንድ የንፁሕ ሐበሻ ሂወት ከሚጠፋ አማራዊቷ ኢትዮጵያ(በትግራዋይ የአክሱም ታሪክ ላይ ተመስርታ ለ ባዕዳዉያን ሀገራት በባንዳነት የሚሰሩ አማራ ልሂቃን የምትታመስ) አናቱዋ ይፍረስ ፥፥ may ethiopia disintigrate and reach to annihilation if a single man lives is gonna be endangered by amhara elites. Minilik II (who steals our horse , killed our people mercilessly)dies from a venereal disease, according to recent reports.

    comment made by someone The prime minister is a CIA man, with studies in America, his mandate is to destroy Ethiopia to harm China, as usual, as seen in Armenia few days ago.

    Abiy is enemy of entire ethiopians . When you campaign and defend him beware you are going against all ethiopians and socalled amharinized ethiopia; You will see teh aftermath soon leaving ethiopia disintegrated. I told you when you post article about his election. Abiy is banda working for foreigners to dismantle ethiopia. It is like those people visiting magicians and told to deny God inorder to get what they dream-Abiy did anything to stay in power and earn money.

  2. Not only celebrating Adwa memorial & victory for the month of February, the program shall be conducted in all schools across the nation as young generation of Ethiopia has to know more about it.

    Historical achievement and the sabotage that had been made by England, Egypt (as it was colony of England with the help of such great empire & then Egypt misused the Nile basin unfairly) and later England made the pave for Italian invasion though Ethiopia had got great support from Russia and lastly made victory in Adwa.

  3. So, such a mess made shall be known by young generations as it leads them make strong on keeping the interest of their country.

  4. Yetesfa Chilanchle where are you I cannot find you are you in the cage or did they put you again behind bars ? I knew that you are fond of hashish and shisha ? stay strong. You must save money from this month salary sent to you by PP head quarter. PP and ethiopia will get destroyed sooon RIP

    • @Eritreans victimsabroadandkillersathome,
