Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
Oromo Democratic Front (ODF) and Patriotic Ginbot 7 (PG7)

August 11, 2016

After several candid discussions and careful considerations of the current political, social, economic and humanitarian situations in Ethiopia, and all the damages caused by successive regimes and the TPLF/EPRDF regime in particular on the welfare and national interests of the peoples of Ethiopia and the security and sovereignty of our country, the ODF and PG7 have made important observations and conclusions. The longer the current regime is allowed to stay in power, the harsher will be the pain, suffering and humiliation endured by the peoples of Ethiopia. Therefore, both parties are fully convinced that a transition from the current TPLF regime towards a new and genuinely federal and democratic state is of utmost urgency.

  1. This is a step foreward for the Ethiopian people at the time when the their son and doughters are tortured and killed by home grown murderers and killers.It is a historical satuation that demands a united front to uproot this bunch of creminals goverment and bring justice , freedom and equality to the Ethiopian people.
    All democratic forces who are standing for the people should stand with these memorandum and liberate Ethiopia.

    Fredom For all Ethiopians!!

  2. Really good news, now Semayawi, Medrek, and Shengo should join them to shorten EPRDF’s cruelty at the same time we have to help those united in any form and be nice to each other despite ethnic group; we can not run divide and rule policy any more.

    • Good news! Collaboration to work together is always welcome idea. Those involved need to do the best for the nation, not only what is best to get them a seat in the dining table particularly by engaging themselves in a marriage of convenience and attempting to outsmart those in the front line. Those who steadfastly resisted TPLF torture and humiliation. Being a diaspora is not a guarantee to Ethiopians solution to democracy and rule of law. Remember also the consequences of microwave cooked coalitions we went through just few years ago.

  3. All the much oppressed Indigenous peoples/regions of Ethiopia must unite – because the ZioNazi-controlled EPR*F regime, is heck bent on carrying further GENOCIDE through Depopulation progrom, of the non-Tigray Indigenous Ethiopians, especially of the Oromo, Amhara and Somali ethnic groups.

    Absolute control of the massively oil/gas/minerals-rich last frontier f Great Horn of Africa, and the Indian Ocean’s maritime routes of the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea are also achieved through the most evil Depopulation agenda of the ZioNazis, foremost, in their most strategically important NAT*O/ISra*l/Jap*n-base, in Ethiopia – through so-called El Nino-caused Famine etc; especially in highly strategic genocidal Tigray dominated-Ethiopian regime right now (who is also strangely demanding WHO’s directorship next year) – especially in massively oi/gas-rich non-Tigray Ethiopian Somali (Ogaden), Amhara and Oromia Indigenous land (of mainly millions of diverse Indigenous Muslim/Catholic-Orthodox and Animists Indigenous peoples) – see http://www.redressonline.com/2016/01/famine-and-government-neglect-in-ethiopia/ , Famine and government neglect in Ethiopia, By Graham Peebles, 10th.

  4. Great News! and I feel comfortable it is with Ato Lencho.

    1- please dont do what issayas and meles did. i.e Agree now and fight later.
    2- you already seem to agree that it will be a federalist system again. Who asked uss and gave us other options? Federalism by itself is a foreign word. Am not Oromo but I would rather Gedda system!Mistake Number 1

    you never know what people would have chosen if they were given the choice 25 years ago whether it was practiced properly or not.
    Maybe people would have agreed to use their language without acting like little countries.
    Ato Lencho since you are more for Federal system, you could experience the same problem like Pakistan did to India. where does it stop? what is the criteria? do you really want to waste your energy on this again?
    3- The youth- what we have in common is our youth not our ethnicity, so please catch up with us.
    21 century is about technology, out sourcing etc.

    Thank you.

  6. Good move ODF and G7!
    But, a big BUT make sure that this goodwill gesture should not only because of in-need of each other to remove the TPF terrorist group, but almost must be based on a true core value system for cooperation to rebuild a democratic nation that recognize every ethnic group as one whole part of a nation; free of those who have a nasty ideology with which their minds have been conditioned for generations.

    – Here is the fact my fellow Oromians, Amharas, and the rest of other ethnic groups, perhaps not concerning Tigrayans who seem to be with their TPLF “heroes”: The Ordinary people of Oromia region and Amhara region have demonstrated their need of one another not only during good days but also during adversaries. THe elites in every ethnic group must conform to the choices of these ordinary citizens! A non-negotiable deal! Corrupted ideologies always come from some elites whose minds are loaded with so much information like record tape cassettes (we call intellectuals), and their minds have been conditioned with either twisted selfish ideas, or with too old archaic monsters ideals such as the so called royal line, I know for you, I am (we are) this or that whose minds are too frozen like polar ice to change, and still trying to drag the nation back to the political system of the 19th or the 20th centuries. This is because a conditioned mind is the prisoner of the past, a captive, and not free enough to see and understand the moment or anticipate the future and act accordingly. It is a tragedy for those who live in captivity but the aspiration of the current ordinary youth, fresh citizens should not be hijacked by those who live in captivity. A great deal of cautious must be taken to detect such individuals by their hidden motives in the name of this or that group.
    These fresh ordinary citizens who broke the bondage of a “divide-and-rule” and shuttered the fans of hatred among the non-tigre Ethiopian people that the Tigre TPLF terrorist group has been fostering, need fresh and brilliant leaders who will take the nation to a higher level.

    Otherwise, the decision that ODF and G7 made to work together is a positive move and certainly it is a big blow to the TPLF terrorist group. Keep it up! We diaspora will stand with you.
    The victory will be for the non-Tigre ordinary citizens of Ethiopia very soon!
    I always believed that the minority Tigre TPLF’s over-rating their capacity and determination to continue lording over non-tigre ordinary citizens at gunpoint is a big mistake, and will be a bad legacy for ordinary Tigre people in the years to come!

    A word of thought:
    ** Keep in mind that if you are strictly honest to your own clear conscience, you do no wrong to others, and more importantly you live at peace with yourself even when other people misunderstand you. So, remain honest to yourself in whatever you do. Cleverness, mischievousness, and smartness to manipulate others to do what you want them to do or to agree with your hidden self-centred activities comes from a corrupted mind and eventually betrays you. Therefore, avoid them whenever you can and remain honest to yourself and to you fellow men/women.
    *** Remember that a committed mind is a corrupted mind. I want you to pause and think about this for a moment. For example, if I am committed to Amharas or Oromos, or Tigres, etc. inevitably my mind is corrupted. I cannot be free of corruption. Same is true with organized religious, or any other particular affair. One of the main sources (if not the only one) of the problem we witness in the Tigre TPLF is that they are extremely committed to the Tigray, to the Tigrayans. If we pay attention to the nature of a regime that represents a nation (not identified itself with one particular ethnic group) and that of the Tigre TPLF-led regime, there is a clear big difference. It is beyond this short comment to explain in details the difference and what we mean by a committed mind. But if anyone thoroughly observe, it is not difficult to see the difference between the two types of regimes, and also to see how corrupted a committed mind is. If interested, please see in yourself; don’t try to find it out in others.
    The victory will be for the ordinary non-Tigre Ethiopian citizens, and their goal will be met soon!

  7. Guys we all wish the best for our country.
    But Lenco Leta has no acceptance in Oromia as he is the one who
    Sold out Oromos in 1992 back home. Do not waste your time. Youth are
    Chanting OLF not ODF.Whether we accept or not OLF is the true champion
    Of 90% of Oromos.Look at the 10 months protesters in Oromia. No mention of ODF.
    Oromos do not need another OPDO. We have OFC in oromia for a peaceful
    Struggle, we do not need a duplicate. Unless this is another OPDO for G7

  8. Good news,
    I hope Amhara has been fairly represented in this coalition and has not been left out as it was the case in 1991. If not, the alliance will be farcical.

  9. ODF isthe second rund OPDO. Brihanu Nega, please, do not feed hodam Lenco Bati’s stomach for free. They will sign with TPLF next year another memorandom of understanding: This 5 indivuduals are trying to survive after their leader Lenco Laa was deported by Woyane.

  10. Ato lenco lata was the father of olf. He gave his livelihood to fight for the oppressed nation particularly, the oromoo people over fourty years. My friends , the time has changed since the fall of the berlin wall. Ato lenco is the smartest politician ethiopia needs right now. someone has to have a thinking flexibility to be a leader. He’s the one.If you’re a stubborn leader,mengistu hailemariam was an example for What’s happened to him. qeerroo chanting olf because they know who established at the first place. What qeerroo needs is a peaceful country, in which he/she considered as equal citizen, a liviable working conditions & equal distribution of resoures among themselves. Some individuals under estment the natural resouse of that country, which’s a wrong assummtion. Ethiopia’s the youngest fertile country in the horn of Africa. But it’s given to the foreign investors by tplf ,instead of training & engaging the youth to benefit their own country. Contrary our future generation’s live thousands of them dumped in to the ocean. This happend lack of a responsible government , who can project & think for his citizen. Bytheway, odf & opdo aren’t the same my friend.If they were the same, they’d not spent 25 years in exile.

    Thank you

  11. Guys!!!Obo Lenco has been struggling for a long time for Oromo people equality and freedom and democracy. As the news scattering, Lenco is cooperating with Behanu Nega Bonger? For what purpose? In what purpose? To get what? How far they know each other? What is the advantage of Lenco on this matter? How is his back ground? BONGA!BONGA! BONGA! BONGA!and LENCO! LENCO! LENCO!! does it go???Never! We are OROMOS!!! OROMYIA IS FOR OROMO!!! NOT FOR MINILIK SUPPORTERS!!! That statue of Arada Giorgie will go to ADWA. That is its place!!!

  12. Good news that ODF and PG7 have agreed to work together in order to accelerate the downfall of brutal and killer woyanes. We smell freedom, equality and justice! Democracy is going to be a reality in our Ethiopia! So God help us.

  13. This working together thing just put by shibiya for thier advantage . They done it many times / you can’t fool people. All the time .there more than 5!opposition groups in Eritrea , how about them ? This is Issayass al -Egypt game .

  14. Lenchoo Lataa is one who sold out the Oromo people in 1992 to the TPLF gangs of thieves. He left the Oromo people in disarry and went abroad to seek asylum in Norway. Lenchoo Lata is an old charalatan. He has no acceptance in Oromiyaa (Biyya Oromoo).He is westing his time. ODF is another OPDO to serve PG7 as puppet. We Oromos do not need ODF (another OPDO)that is led by a charalatan.

    We have KFO (Kongiresa Federaalawaa Oromoo)/OFC (Oromo Federalist Congress)for a peaceful struggle. For Lenchoo Lataa it is appropriate to join KFO/OFC rather than PG7. Brehanu Nega is anti-Oromo propagandist. He is ambitous to be the most brutal Minilik III.

  16. I think it is good news with a little conserne. Pls do not just agree to fight Weyane agree also to keep the country’s unity once you won. Keep working to include others too including the Tigray Ethiopians. Weyene does not represent them. Pls don’t agree now to split the country like Meles and Isayas.

  17. Ummmm. Wow!!! Where was Al-Toweel Isaias when these two sign this MOU? It is not a bad thing but wondering if the professor is still lobbying in Asmara. Ok…now we have the MOU these two signed. How about coughing up all the MOU’S and short/long term agreements Al-Toweel had you put your John Hancock on list on this esteemed website? How about that? Let’s see them all!!!!

Brehanu Nega is anti-Oromo propagandist. He is ambitious to be the most brutal Minilik III to prevent the independence of Oromiyaa (Biyya Oromoo).

    Lenchoo Lataa will die soon. Just forget about him. He would not be an exaemplary leader for the Oromo people. He did nothin in the past. He is now a dysfuntional person among the old Oromo charalatans.

    Lenchoo Lataa and is ODF are just puppet for the Gurage/Amhara led PG7. The confused Lenchoo Lataa is confusing the Oromo people. We must enpower strongly the Qeerroo generation and the Qubee generation to stand against ODF surrogets and PG7 terrorists.

    Oromiyaa (Biyya Oromoo) shall be free!
    Down with ODF surrogets und PG terrorists!
