TPLF ethnic apartheid rebels went to the bush to liberate their ethnic group not Ethiopia

by Obang Metho
When the ethnic apartheid rebels of the TPLF went into the bush, they were motivated to do so in order to liberate their own ethnic group and region. The TPLF did not fight for the interest of Ethiopia, to liberate Ethiopia or for the well being of the Ethiopian people, but only for their own tribal interests.
Nazi TPLF
Their cousins, the Eritrean Peoples’ Liberation Front (EPLF), did the same. The EPLF went to fight for the interest of Eritreans who wanted to divide their region from Ethiopia. Many other groups were the same; for example, the Oromo Liberation Front fought for the interests of the Oromo. The same was duplicated by the people of Gambella, the Ogaden, Benishangul, Afar and elsewhere.
When the Dergue fell, had there been a body that represented the national interests of all Ethiopians, these self-appointed TPLF tribal leaders would have not had such an easy time to take over. The people of Ethiopia missed their opportunity and the tribal interests took over and remain in competition with everyone else.
Over the last 25 years, the TPLF have been promoting their tribal agenda and are not there for the national interests of the Ethiopian people. As a result of their narrow ethnic apartheid policy, they have not only put themselves at great risk of downfall, but in doing so, when they fall, if it is done in the wrong way, it could jeopardize all of the people of Ethiopia. This makes it imperative for the people of Ethiopia to come up with the body that cares for the well being of the entire people so we might make a way for a different kind of transition. No one ethnic group will be free until we all are free.
Right now, Ethiopians have been divided by tribe; people don’t talk to each other, but only about each other. As previously mentioned, Ethiopians from all over the world express their fear that Ethiopia could turn into a Rwanda. This is the fruit of the tribal policy—its inevitable conclusion.
May He help us to see the beauty of the God-given humanity in others for then we will not be limited by our differences.

  1. Dear All,
    I agree with most of what our esteemed friend Obang Metho writes. However, I am not as pessimistic as he seems to be about the relationship between individual Ethiopians and of the inter-ethnic relationships.
    It is the TPLF that the people are focusing on. I heard of ordinary Ethiopians(Oromo,Amhara…)going over to their Tigrean brothers and sisters in other regions especially in Oromia region and assuring them that the age old mutual respect and peaceful co-existence’ will continue despite the TPLF’s state conducted genocide against the Oromo.
    I am absolutely confident that most Ethiopians know very well as to who the targets are-the TPLF Gangsters! Following my recent article where I highlighted the distinction between Tigray and the TPLF, I received numerous encouraging comments from readers. Even Gadaa.com used it as a feature article!
    Hence, I suggest that we be cautious when writing about the presumed ‘animosity’ among and between Ethiopians!!
    Regards

  3. THE DESPERADOS AND THEIR DESPERATE PROPAGANDA.
    THE NEFETEGNA CAMP MUST BE DESPERATE THIS DAYS THEY SAY ANYTHING AND PROPAGANDIZE ANYTHING AND DO ANYTHING UNDER THE SUN TO GRASP POWER.
    ONE OF THE BASIC FUNDSMENTAL AND ART OF PROPAGANDA IS NOT TO REVEAL ONCE OWN WEAKNESS AND YOUR DESPERATION AND NOT TO EXAGGERATE THE PROPAGANDA TO EXTENT WHERE IT BECOME DETECTED BY COMMON MAN ( TO WHOM THE PROPAGANDA DIRECTED AT), IN THIS CASE THE NEFETEGNA PROPAGANDISTAS NOT ONLY FAILED AT ITS AIM BUT SHOWN TOO MUCH WEAKNESS.

  4. Obang you are a true Ethiopian and a brave freedom fighter and human right defender however once you wrote this piece about the Tigray Aparthaid Regime you should be prepared from the attack gonna come your way from vicious . Racist, Chuvinist , greedy Tigre TPLF supporters

  5. Beyond the childish propaganda game.
    If we are serious about defeating EPRDF, then we must convince Ethiopias mass by showing our better rational political ideas and constructive acts by building rail road,hydro dams,highways,universities,colleges,irrigation mega farmings,sky scrappers, hospitals,clinics etc…., if not then forget it, EPRDF will continue to be re-elected for the next several decades and they rule Ethiopia for decades to come.

  7. “PSYCHOLOGICAL HATERED DRIVEN BY INFERIORITY COMPLEX”.
    How come SHANKELA TRIBE MEN (Obang Metho) always characterize the Habesha race as Nazi ? ?
    The Shankelas hated Menilike, Hated Haileselassie, hated Mengestu and now hating again.

    • Yosee, you sound Nazi man. Every black man is Shankila. you are not white. You are Shankila and stupid, bado or empty headed.

  8. Dear Obanga, you are wrong. I do not agree with you 100%. You have never lived in Tigrai during the so so called struggle. If you like, the people of Tigrai the victim of TPLF than any Ethiopian. Why? I know why because I lived there as young boy then. It was the people of Tigrai who fought Woyane for 17 years. For 17 years Woyane was not accepted. Woyane embraced only after Hawzien. Without the Tigrean Militia who were fighting Woyanes for 17 years with derg,Derg would not have stayed 17 years or woyane would not have stayed 17 years in caves. During the 17 years, woyanes used to take recruit Tigreans by manipulation using music, Tigrean propaganda and anti Amhara propaganda the same way Shabia was using. The people Tigrai did not choose woyanes. Woyanes manipulated an educated people and eventually time was ripe for them and them when derg overthrown. The people of Tigrai suffered persecution by derg, woyanes, Shabia Jebha, EPPRP, EDU,… you have no clue how the people because of Haileslassie, derg, Woyane Shabia, Edu, EPRP, Jebha, .. there was no peace at all. Everyone burning everything in Tigrai except the EPRDFP, all were violent, killers. They burnt schools, clinic, buses, they even dug out telecommunication poles, trees died, rivers dried, people died by preventale diseases like Dieyra, Thyphoid, Malaria, …. I honestly do not know why woyane went to the bush because they do not have any good so far either for Tigreans or other Ethiopians. I think few people have had their own agenda and the rest were taken for a ride in the name of their ethnic.
    I do not believe Tigreans liberated now. In Tigrai you have no freedom of speech or you can not oppose either you killed or put in prison. Tigrai is the most corrupt region in Ethiopia now. If you have read what happened to Dawit G? He lived in Dubia for 30 years and he made money in his host counry. He went back to Tigrai to invest in his birth place? But he was denied to do any business anywhere in Tigrai for 4 years? did you hear when PM HD was shocked about it? I am sure you have followed that story? Another investors from Tigrain, born and bread in Tigrai, he said he could not do business in Tigrai, he run to addis ababa and even addis ababa, he could do business despite he is a successful business man/ Now that you man who is a successful business man is in USA doing business and he has invested in other Africans countries and USA. He said he could not do business in Ethiopia because there is too much corruption. He said Cadres come into your house and take everything. I do not believe TPLF liberated the people of Tigrai. TPLF is holding hostage the people but they can not complain because there is no freedom and opposing woyanes is being considered a taboo. You are totally wrong to tell us Woyane liberated Tigreans. A liberator would never landlock his by people by gun? Woyane is an illegal Shifta what rules by gun. Woyane is not equal Tigrean people and Shabia is not equal to Eritrean.BOth are evil who manipulated to their own narrow agenda. The rest of Ethiopia has relative during the 17 years, but people in Tigrai were dying by war, famine, hunger, preventable diseases, trees died, rivers dried, no development, no education, no economic activities for almost two decades? people became internal refugees within the region, migrated to other part of the country, become refugees in Sudan, Kenya, Djibouti, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Somalia, … add to that 70 000 youth perished in the so called liberation? about 120 000 maimed? women raped by derg soldiers,… what did the people of got today after all that? nothing, they have no even right to free speech? Are you telling me the people of Tigrai are now free from oppression, suppression, you may not agree with me, Tigreans more oppressed today than during derg time. How can you liberate people by denying God given rights?

  9. ..sad,Obang Metho’s tribe used to considered as subhuman monkies.
    I remember during King Haileselassie era, when foreign digniteries and visitors come to Ethiopia the Haileselassie’s police used to be told to hide the Gambela dark people out of town.
    Even my own grandfather used to own several slaves of Gambela people.
    Now time has changed, nice to see Gambela people like Obang Metho would dream of becoming king of Ethiopia.

    • To Tefere Mekonen,
      You are the most ignorant person in the entire world wide. You talking about Haile Selasie to hide of your crimes. Down with TPLF freedom for all Ethiopians.

I think few people have had their own agenda and the rest were taken for a ride in the name of their ethnic. Take note, Ethiopian officials have now skyscrapers, high rise buildings in addis,… do you think liberators can do that? The people of Tigrai did not have water to drink during derg time because derg could not do any development work then, today there is no water in every town and cities in Tigrai. Mekelle, the capital city has no reliable water. Woyane could not solve the water problem except telling the whole city residents to dig a well underground. A liberators would not care do that ? A liberator would have done diverted some water from the blue Nile and give clean water water thirsty people.

  12. As always Brother OBANG,Wonderfully Analized and I might add
    The Ethno-fascisit TPLF have Zero Support even among Tigreans ,It’s few self Serve Ethnic War Lords Who should be Excluded,Singled out and face justice for their heineous crime against Ethiopians and Ethiopia,WHEN AND iF THE DEMOCRATIC REGIME INSTALLED IN FUTURE ETHIOPIA
    I assure you all this artifical TPLF looting and killing spreee will come to few Individuals not even a Thousand Inner Core TPLF Murderers and Loooters .Ethiopian people will live ever after with respect care and Democratic System
    LOOTING AND KILLING ,THE TPLF TRADE MARK WILL BE GONE WITH THE FEW TPLF APARTHEIDE FUHRER, LIKE THE SS MEMBERS OF NAZI GERMANY

  13. Dear Brother Obang
    You are a wonderful person who wish Ethiopians all the best.
    Thank you so much.
    The truth will definitely prevail at the end.

  14. ARE WE ETHIOPIANS RACIST ?
    I am shocked to witness that no Ethiopian habesha race never merry nor mix with The extra dark people of Gambela.
    Oromos,Tigres,Gonderes,sidamas,Eritreans,Amharas merry each other but no Habesha merriest Gambella people.
    Are we Ethiopians/Habesha rejecting Gambelas and are we Ethiopians racist ?
    I know that most Ethiopians/Habesha looks down on them, but will that change in the future ?

  15. @Tefere,
    the callous banda Tefere who is a cadre of tigre liberation front has degenerated into the lowest form of sub human. a dog has more brain than what you have.
    you are not even fit to clean the toilet of Obang Metho a man like you , who cannot even write a proper english has no right to commment on who Obang Metho is.

  16. Obang,
    Please you have to know that, yes TPLF used the name Tigray, but they didn’t liberate Tigray or Tigreans. As you said it they are not even for Tigray leave alone to liberate Ethiopia. Every Ethiopian isn’t liberated under TPLF, but we have to liberate All Ethiopians. TPLF is primarily destroying Tigray.

  17. @Tefere makonen,
    No wonder why Gambela people like Obang metho deep down feel inferior and suffer deep seated hatred toward habesha, consider habeshas as nazis.

  18. @Jammy,
    I THINK OUR CIVILIZED KING HAILESELASSIE FOR CIVILIZING GAMBELLA.
    WHAT TOILET TOILET ? there is no toilet in Gambela, they are not civilized yet. Most Gambela people did not even have proper attire till King Haileselassie gov force them in the 1960’s to cover their bodies.
    *To be honest and frank, the issue for Obang Metho and his kinds the problem is not HUMAN RIGHT but maybe it is unfinished evolution, which can not be solved by Human right issue.

  19. Yes Brother Obang you are absolutely right with the undeniable over proven fact on the ground today that proved your article. You are a true Ethiopian brother for millions who never stop caring about the voiceless, hurt, abused, neglected and brutalized by a bunch of greedy ethnocentric TPLF gangsters.
    Obvious ugliest TPLF commentators here that Zehabesha.com did’t care to delete teaches us how low TPLF gangster families stoop so low with their cheap tactic and hidden false names and miss-characterizing good leaders.
    TPLF came in with false identity and invaded the country without the consent of citizen and now TPLF gangbusters are out of poverty.
    Now it has over stayed and over stretched its power with dwindling numbers of supporters and on the brink of dying by hanging with its own narrow mentality ethnocentric invention rope.
    The metastasized greed veiled over their face has kept them as blind, hungry for power and money at the expense of the hurt and brutalized.

  20. Mr. Obang, TPLF went into the bush, to liberate their own most hated traitor (banda) linage, not the Ethnic group Tigray. Of course, no one would cooperate with them if they had said it plainly so. Thus, they claimed to be liberators of the ethnic group Tigray.
    They practiced their barbarism and keep on doing it with the Tigray people. Descendants of the traitors had to work hard and produce poletical talks and tats which would convince the Tigray people and others that they fought for the ethnic group Tigray. To that end they systematically demonized Tewahedo, Amhara and the marvelous Ethiopian historical records. These all were stated as the manifesto of TPLF.
    Historical enemies of Ethiopia (the powers) further guided and supported TPLF and they could effectively revenge against Ethiopia.
    Thus, Mr Obang, TPLF has never aimed to liberate Tigray, rather to destroy it like other Ethiopians. It is a gang of banda descendants committed to destroy Ethiopia, Ethiopian histories/values/traditions and Ethiopians.
    TPLF is enemy of all Ethiopians. The only friends of TPLF are neocolonisors.

  21. To Mr. Tifere minkonen,
    Why are you calling Obang Metho “incomplete unfinished evolution” ?
    You sound a genetic scientist ?

  22. What a lovely to have like Mr. Obang & professor Alrmayehu
    On this most devastating situation Ethiopia ever faced.
    As Amhara, I am a very frustrated person With the
    The political sphere by one minority ethnic based
    TPLF.
    Thank u so much Mr. Obang for your great effort to Dave
    Our beautiful Ethiopia.

  23. Attn: Tefere Mekonen
    You are rather the one with unfinished mental evolution. You are either one of the TPLF leaders such as monster Sebhat Nega.
    Listen, the evolutionary unfinished Ethiopians are the following:
    – the late Melese Zenawi and his living dead TPLF colleagues.
    – those who blindly support TPLF.
    – AND OF COURSE YOU.
