  1. This is not news let alone a surprise ay all! The political recycling of EPRDF will continue as long as the people are not fortunate enough to create and develop a political force that would be defined and characterized by a genuine and feasible democratic way of doing things; and be able to shorten the deadly politics of ethnocentrism! Yes, whether we like it or not , the people we will remain under the same if not the worst political system of TPLF?EPRDF but dominated by one of its faction (ODP/ oromuma).

  2. Congratulation sir! Now you have to watch your language very, very carefully. No more loose lips moving at random. You are now put to task to prove doubters and detractors that my Oromos are even more generous and magnanimous where they are in their majority. You are now even more entrusted with the capability to make Oromia as an example to others that they will be welcome and will be ingratiated with the right to live and work in peace. When bigots go on rampage with their arsonist crime you will be expected to turn your fire hose high to douse it off. Don’t forget the fact even for a minute that my Oromos are most magnanimous and safe haven to every resident when and where ever they are in their majority. No mother should wail, no spouse should cry rivers and no father should be seen in crushing grief because their loved ones were cut down by mobs incited by smart aleck bigots. You regional government seems to need better housekeeping. You may need to clean it up of any individuals gripped with hatred for others just because they are not like them. God Speed!!!!
