  3. Good question. “Where is Arbegnoch – Genbot 7? Where is Prof. Berhanu?” That’s what people in Amhara regiona are asking.

    Show time for Arbegnoch – Genbot7. If they do not show in Amhara region soon, people will be disappointed and give up.

    The question is do they really exist and have the capacity to step in? We’ll have to wait and see.

    It appears that people’s expectations are raised via ESAT and some websites.

  4. I am sorry. They are vision less protectors. only yelling. This is mission of Egypt and Eretria, not their.

  5. I WONDER WHAT THE woyane thugs are thinking.A year ago we were been told that they won 100 % now no one support them,including the military and police.
    Last month i hear a joke there is no equivalent word to “Shame” in tigrigna.That is what is happening now.If the people didnt want your regime please make tactical retreat to tigray.OTHERWISE YOU CAN NOT PREDICT WHAT ACTIONS THE PEOPLE MAY TAKE.IF THERE IS NO OUTLET TO EXPRESS RESENTMENT,PEOPLE MAY TAKE GRAVE ACTIONS LIKE THE GENOCIDE IN RWANDA OR COMMIT TERROR ACTIVITIES EVERYWHERE.And please Tigrians donot take confidence by being secretly armed illicitly by the government.Power balance may shift immediately and unpredictively leaving you prone to any type of attack from other people.Therefore it is advisable to take some compromisory actions before late.
