Dr. Negasso Gidada did not explain the reason for what he called “Yerse Berse Gichete” or Civil War. Ethnic Federalism he himself participated created for the last 25 years “We” and “Them”. We witnessed Ethnic cleansing in the 1990s. After 2005 Ethnic solidarity was preached against the Kinijit Movement. After Kinijit is gone every five year political rally in the name of “election” there was no any party/s that can rally throughout Ethiopia even if the outcome of any “election” is known. TPLF/EPRDF monopolized Ethiopia in all fronts. Land lease for foreigners brought Gambella as a battle ground between our rulers and the inhabitants. Last November the Oromo farmers and students said no to their land taken away in the name of “Master Plan”. Oromoland for Oromos became a slogan. Welkait rally behind “Land of Welkait is Amhara”. The conflict we are seeing now is not between Ethnic groups rather between TPLF/EPRDF and the people of Ethiopia for the control of Land ! ! Ofcourse there is Land claim between Afar and Issas, Oromos and Somalis, In the South too. Of all the land claims I argue that drives those in power restless is Gonder historical claim of Welkait. For TPLF Badme can be traded for Eritrea if peace deal is signed between Shabia and TPLF. What the TPLF will not do is give up Welkait it controlled as part of Western Tigray using Ethnic Federalism for which Dr.Negasso should held also accountable. Revisiting Federalism as suggested by Dr. Negasso less than writing new constitution by the full participation of the people will be very critical to avoid Ethnic War between Gonderes and Tigrayans.
To avoid the coming danger need to open up the media and accept the rights of Ethiopian citizens to express their views and organize freely in all parts of Ethiopia without any discrimination. The rallying cry for all of us should be Freedom and Equality under Ethiopia !!! There is no Free Oromia, Ogaden, Sidama etc. We should not have Liberation Fronts of any kind in Ethiopia be it TPLF, OLF etc
