The National Defense Force will protect Ethiopia’s legislative order and will face the dangers threatening the country today, said the head of the Military Operations Division of the armed force, Berhanu Jula.
Although he did not mention what or who threatens the stability of the nation, his comment came after a statement by the authorities of the Tigray region, according to which they will ignore the mandate of the federal government as of October.
We are very well prepared to enforce all laws and we will be forced to adopt measures against those who, by wanting to impose their will, try to violate the constitution or subvert institutional precepts, said the general, also deputy chief of staff.
Scheduled for last August, general elections were postponed due to the impact of Covid-19, at the proposal of the National Electoral Board and with the approval of Parliament, but the Tigray People’s Liberation Front contested that ruling.
As an alternative to postponement, the Federation Chamber decided to extend the mandate of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed until sanitary conditions made it possible to hold elections, when the legislative structures that expired next October would be reconstituted.
On top of criticizing the parliamentary ruling, the Front called and carried out votes for the 190-seat regional congress, with the participation of four other parties, declared unconstitutional by the premier, who accused the organization of challenging the electoral body.
Jula addressed other issues in an interview with the Ethiopian News Agency, but his observation regarding the protection of the statutes produced the most reactions and is considered a warning of how the army will respond against constitutional crimes.
Those who consider there will be no legitimate government in Ethiopia after September 30, should take care of their actions and refrain from violating the constitution, as the Defense Force will guarantee its validity, said the high official.
Tigray, where a government led by Debretsion Gebremichael was established, also does not accept the recent provision of Parliament, which approved holding the votes in all regions during the current fiscal year (July 8, 2020 – July 7, 2021).
It determined to carry them out despite the deterioration of the health situation caused by the disease since last March and in strict compliance with the measures adopted by the Ministry of Health to contain the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

It is sad;
it is tragedy in its classical sense;
it is wanton madness
And then the greatest sadness of all is NOT the INITIATORS that sacrifice their LIFE but the COMMONERS; the lowly paid; the foundation of the few who sacrifice their dear Life for a peanut of daily survival. >>> the soldiers and poor civilians. They are the classical sacrificial lambs.
The few who are comfortable in their offices and well guarded mansions; the lunatic few who are obsessed with the sacrificial lambs of millions; etc have nothing to lose but everything to gain at the expense of the lowly millions and millions of innocent people. Dear Reader: PLEASE, LOOK AT THE PHOTO OF THE SOLDIERS, INTENTLY. Where do you think they are ultimately heading???? And it is not their free choice!!!!! YOU can’t help concluding that LIFE IS NOT FAIR.
And if we turn to the Almighty Lord whose wings surround us left to right; up and down all over us, the answer we get is simple and clear >>> “be patient —wait — have faith in ME, your Almighty — and you will be rewarded immensely by eternal life up in heaven. Amen. As the daily expression goes >>> ‘WE ARE SUCKERS.’ THE END
I say Yes Sir, Yeeeeesssss Sir to General Berhanu Jula. A Dinagde reincarnate? Yes Sir!!! One of my Warra Chercher(Carcar) once told me a story about Dinagde. It happened when that stubborn Afro/Ethio-Centric great patriot told one British bigoted military official at a site on the border with Kenya. That British bigot was asking to move the border line well inside the current territory of the then Abyssinia(Now they heard me using the word Abyssinia those bigots in Minnesota and some here on this website are about to commit mass suicide like the Heaven’s Gate members). What Dinagde did was so telling and astounding. It was said that he picked up some stones placed them on the other side of a river and told that bully wannabe Brit ‘This is the border line. This line you shall never cross. Never!’ Hey bigots!!! That was Dinagde, my ever shinning Oromo!!!! That was the unrepentant Afro-centric you chose to call him ‘A Neo-Gobena, a carrier soldier, a mercenary’. Do you see now how you are walking around with a sick mind? Who gave you that admission to a bar to practice law anyway? Was that sympathy vote because you cried so much about the injustice done to your grandparents more than 100 years ago? You know what? I am gonna write a thesis myself on how your grandparents came to my Itu villages in Western Hararghe in the 19th century as part of the invading forces under the command of Wolde Abu Shaitan. That will fetch two PhD’s for me. Two? No, three spanking PhD’s!!!! Hayilikethat!!!!
