  1. An excellent idea. Now it is that time to find out who is disingenuous and shun this call for a united effort for the good of the upright citizens of that country. We will also be able to tell between Facebook/Twitter ‘patriots’ and those who can be counted on. But there is one topic I consider off limits to be on the agenda and that is the call for separate ‘republics’. Those who push this call are those with a grand plan to found their own fiefdoms so they can loot uncontested. No sir! The hell with them!!! . .

  2. It is about time Abiy has finally chosen dialogue. It must include all our heroes who have fought oppressors for a long time. That includes those gallant Oromos, Sidamas and Gambelas. Oromo freedom fighters such as Professors Henok Gabisa, Ezekiel Gebisa, Awol Alo, Tsegaye Ararasa, Asafa Jalata, Seenaa Jimjimo, Ali Saeed Yayo, Lemma Megersa, Arfasse Gemeda, Tsedale Lemma, Shimelis Abdisa, Jaal Maroo, Debretsion, Eskinder Nega, Jawar Mohammed and Bekele Gerba must be invited to this planned discussion.
