The Enigmatic Silence: General Abebaw Tadesse’s Decision

June 22, 2024

The Habesha

General Abebaw Tadesse’s decision to remain silent in the face of thought-provoking questions highlights the gravity of the situation faced by the Amhara community in Addis Ababa. The unjust imprisonment and violence inflicted upon individuals, regardless of their status, is a clear indication of the deteriorating state of security and justice in the city. The Amhara people, known for their leadership qualities and hard work, are now living in constant fear of being targeted and arrested without any valid justification. This raises serious concerns about the lack of protection and fairness within the legal system.

The challenges faced by the Amhara community extend far beyond mere discrimination, as their very safety and social interactions are under threat. The pervasive atmosphere of fear and insecurity has made even simple activities like sharing a meal a risky endeavor. The streets, once bustling with life, have now become perilous for the youth, who are increasingly becoming victims of abduction and extortion. The fact that authorities are complicit in demanding money from unjustly arrested individuals further underscores the deep-rooted corruption and abuse of power within the system.

The alarming situation in Addis Ababa not only reflects a failure of the government to protect its citizens but also raises questions about the integrity of the institutions meant to uphold justice. The systematic targeting and mistreatment of the Amhara people point towards a larger issue of discrimination and oppression that needs to be addressed urgently. General Abebaw Tadesse’s silence speaks volumes about the urgent need for accountability and transparency in ensuring the safety and rights of all individuals, regardless of their background. It is imperative that steps are taken to rectify the injustices faced by the Amhara community and restore faith in the legal system.

The situation in Addis Ababa and its surrounding areas is extremely dire, with the Amhara community bearing the brunt of targeted discrimination and oppression. It is disheartening to witness Colonel Zelalem, who holds a position of authority, displaying a complete lack of awareness regarding these injustices. How can a nation be deemed fair and just when its own people are subjected to such atrocities? The Amhara people have suffered enough, and it is crucial to address these pressing issues in order to restore peace and justice in the city. Mere compensation is not sufficient; concrete actions need to be taken to ensure the safety and well-being of the Amhara community. It is high time for the government to acknowledge and rectify these injustices, as the future of Addis Ababa’s peaceful coexistence depends on it.

  1. I just watched another panel discussion that was held in Minnesota with participants coming from various backgrounds and professing different religions. That is encouraging to me. I saw our daughters/sisters taking active parts in the discussion. It was a civil presentation of ideas and I applaud the organizers and moderators. We should not be afraid or hostile to ideas due to the fact that throughout history no one has been able to kill ideas. Even Stalin and Mao had tried to kill everyone with different/opposing ideas. They killed tens of millions but were not successful in stamping out ideas completely. It did not take too long for them to be declared wrong through out their rule by those who after them. Khrushchev’s admittance of brutal excesses during the Stalin years sent the commies in every continent is disarray. Mao’s right hand hangmen/woman were rounded and sent to jail for life which sent our own commies split up into fragments of irrelevant creatures. I was dancing in the streets during the years 1976-78 when the news of excesses by Mao and his hordes started to come out. Mao killed more than 50 million civilians because he wanted to kill all ideas that he thought were different from his. So, if the current regime back in the old country or those that will come next think they can wipe out differing ideas, that ain’t gonna happen. There is also another baseless notion that depicts the old country is seconds away to go belly up. I don’t how some people have the nerve or even start to believe that the old country was founded and left to wither away by Good Ole USA after the 2nd World War. When I see and hear individuals with higher education say that, it makes me wonder how did they come up with such wild tale. It means that country never existed before WWII and Truman just on a whim decided to slap together some outfit that was wreaked by mold from head to toe and left it to rot. Folks, stop blaming Menelik and that Barentu firecracker Taytu for creating that country. After watching the presentation by the ‘daredevil’ I may have to stop calling my country of birth ‘the gem of the colored’. It shows how some individuals are dangerously hateful of everything about that country. I mean hateful about everything including its people except their own group of people. But I still encourage organizers of such panel discussion to keep their blessed endeavor. I am sure they have the rightful intellectual horsepower that Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti and Somalia can not go on in the long run without each other. Greater this and greater that never worked except sending countries spiraling into oblivion. It ain’t gonna work. They have to embed in their Allah gifted conscience that when you demonize a country you may entrap yourself into demonizing its people. When you demonize a group of people you may end up having innocent civilians killed/massacred. That has happened inside Ethiopia, Somalia and even in the darling of the Horn of Africa, Djibouti in 1991. Again blessings to the organizers of the panel discussion.
