One: There are some pseudo-moralists & rough dudes who accuse the Oromo activists for leaking & disqualifying this exam process that was meant to kill a generation of Oromo students. Ignoring regime apologists for the obvious reasons, we have learned that some Ethiopianists are also on this accusatory bandwagon. Well, what these pseudo-moralists say in a nutshell is that Oromo students who didn’t attend classes for over 18 weeks (the academic year has 32 effective weeks) had to sit for a national exam that’s administered at the country level (and graded as such) with literally no preparation for the exams. For them in effect, it would have been morally okey if regime retaliates for the protests by making the whole students from Oromia region fail to get pass marks or attain “bad grades” to be placed in any of the “not-good” streams of University studies. That’s the bottom-line of their morality. It ain’t only unjust & immoral thought, though, but a genocidal one indeed, if looked at its root.
Two: It’s has to be recalled that students, teachers, student families, Oromo elders etc filed their formal requests for the extension of the examination period, compensatory tutors for lost classes to cover all remaining subjects. The Oromia Education Department consented at the beginning. But because of the arrogance & ignorance of the TPLF oligarchic bosses who out-rightly rejected this public request thereby forcing the process go ahead, Oromo activists motivated by the mere sense of justice leaked the exam booklets first for Maths, English & Physics; then followed the rest, thereby effectively disqualifying the whole process that would be valid ONLY if secured.
Three: The exams were leaked days before, but the idea of dumping it on social media just a day before the exam date was a well-thought-out-strategy meant to minimize the psychological trauma it may carry onto students, esp on those from other regional states in Ethiopia (hence damage minimization measures taken :) ). By releasing it at night just before the exam date, we believe that most well to do students didn’t have to endure the stress that might have been entailed in the exam leaking news circulating for long.
Four: Once again, the regime is forced to cancel another thing after having refused to do so via a formally filed public requests in a peaceful & reasonable way. This is again a victory for the #OromoProtests. And we believe that the psychological damages entailed, resources wasted & feelings hurt are due all the responsibility of the regime that is addicted to doing everything by force.
Five: Making the exam cancelled ain’t the ultimate goal. Students in Oromia state should be compensated for the time they lost of their studies, tutors prepared for students to make up for lost classes, appropriate technical & psychological supports extended for students to help them get ready for the national exams. The students need to be normalized. They were being terrorized & brutalized by the Agazi killing squad throughout the academic year; they also lost some of their intimate friends & families. With all these, forcing them sit for the country-wide/national exam is an inexcusable crime.
MUCH LOVE & RESPECT to the ground activists who made this happen!

  1. Gala is gala. You are happy wasting thee energy, time, resource of non-oromos?This is a public crime. The regime is useless. It can not even control its internet or monitor or know who is who on its social media? But yet it spends millions of dollars to buy spywares to spy on diaspora. The Galas must be send back to Somalia and Kenya

  2. If indeed it is conscientious Ethiopians who have leaked the exam, they deserve tremendous commendation as it would have prejudiced the candidates who have been victims of Woyane violence for the best part of the year.
    I thought, it was the malicious Woyanes who sold the papers which someone else could then have made it public.
    However unfair deferring the exam date for other Ethiopians may sound, it is a pain that all Ethiopians must bear with fortitude. We are under attack. The incorrigible enemy has declared war on our nation on every front. This is a wake-up-call to brandish whatever we possess and face these inferior breed of creatures.
    By the way, virtually all Schools in annexed Wolqayit and other parts of Begemdir have been closed for over year.
    We remember too well how these beastly TPLF savages recruited many peasant Oromo youth and armed them while disarming their Amara neighbours. Yes, they pitted the well armed and incited Oromos against unarmed and innocent Amaras who were massacred in cold blood.The aim was to turn our country into an inferno.
    This is the depth of their cruelty and barbarism that they could to. The giants who have in the main made the present Ethiopia what it is, the Amara and Oromos will once reclaim their rightful place place in the affairs of their country. Their first duty however is to weed out the enemy with a unity of purpose.

  3. TPLF HAD BEEN STEALING EXAMS FOR THEIR OWN CIRCLE FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES. THE MAIN REASON ETHIOPIA IS A CONTINUOUS BEGGAR WITHOUT EVEN BEING ABLE TO FEED IT’S OWN CITIZENS IS BECAUSE ALL OFFICIALS ARE UNQUALIFIED IGNORANTS WITH FAKE DEGREES THAT BELIEVE IN KILLING ANYONE THAT CHALLENGES THEIR LEADERSHIP SKILLS TO BE THEIR RIGHTFUL DUTY.
    .TPLF AFFILIATED STUDENTS AND THE MILITARY AFFILIATED KIDS HAD BEEN GETTING FREE PASS ALL OVER LEARNING INSTITUTIONS EXAMS FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES. THE TPLF AFFILIATED STUDENTS HAD BEEN GETTING AND STILL ARE GETTING EXAMS OF EVERY KIND INCLUDING JOB ENTRANCE EXAMS AT TOP GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS AHEAD OF THE EXAM DATE FOR THE LAST 20+ YEARS. TAMRAT LAYNE FIRED ALL PROMINENT UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS RIGHT WHEN HE BECAME PRIME MINSTER TO PAVE WAY TO TPLF KIDS.

  4. In the past, the stolen exams were only available to Tigrai kids. Now the Tigrai kids could not keep it to Tigres only – Social Media has exposed the 25 year Tigre tactic for the world to see. It is simply sad that the country we once loved reduced to the Tigre disneyland….. what a shame!!!

  5. Woyane / TPLF has failed totally and completely in its mission. Woyane is set out to destroy Ethiopia will in the end self-destruct. Ethiopians will continue to watch on the sidelines with aching hearts and bellies. They gnash their teeth and wag their index fingers asking themselves when the day of reckoning will finally arrive.
    Woyane and all Tigre accomplices know that behind the deafening silence of millions of Ethiopians and apparent passivity is boiling anger just like liquefied magma before it erupts in a volcano.
    Or perhaps it is like the proverbial finger in the dam. You can’t stop the dam from collapsing by sticking a finger in the hole of the dam. What happens when the dam finally collapses?
    There is no doubt about it. The day of reckoning for the Woyane and all Tigre accomplices will come “unexpectedly, like a thief in the night.”

  6. Tigre thugs trolling the web:|
    You are not only from Dedebit BUT YOU ARE DEDEB TIGRE. True to your Dedebit root, twenty five years of looting did not change your illiterate minds. Time is running out – You will return to Dedebit. No more shall Ethiopians defend you when Shabia’s come after Tigray – kick you tigre ass once and for all. Time to settle score is coming soon to Tigray!
