TPLF Loots 570,000 Liters of Fuel from WFP Warehouse in Mekelle, UN Confirms

WFP director , David Beasley

The United Nations (UN) revealed that TPLF looted 12 full tankers with 570,000 liters of fuel in Mekelle, which were solely used for humanitarian purposes.

Stephane Dujarric, chief spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that “World Food Programme warehouse in Mekelle, capital of the Tigray region, was forcibly entered by Tigray forces, who took 12 full fuel tankers with 570,000 liters of fuel.”

The team at the warehouse unsuccessfully tried to prevent the looting, he said.

These fuel stocks were to be used solely for humanitarian purposes, for the distribution of food, fertilizer and other emergency relief items. This loss of fuel will impact humanitarian operations supporting communities in all of northern Ethiopia, said Dujarric.

The chief spokesman added this loss of fuel will impact humanitarian operations supporting communities in northern Ethiopia.

“We condemn any looting or confiscation of humanitarian goods or humanitarian premises, and we call on all parties to uphold their obligations under international humanitarian law and to respect humanitarian personnel, activities, assets and goods,” he told a regular press briefing.

“We are very concerned for the civilians in front-line areas and call on all parties to adhere to their obligations under international humanitarian law to ensure their protection,” he added.

    VERY NICE TOUCHING WORDS >>> AFTER THE OBVIOUS ENDING. AS THE SAYING GOESE, IT IS REFLECTED BY CROCODILE TEARS.

    LET HISTORY REMEMBER THE CONSPIRACY TO DIVIDE THE ANCIENT BLACK AFRICAN COUNTRY, ETHIOPIA, iNTO pIECES.

    AND SO, THE HISTORY of BLACK AFRICAN CONTINENT REMAINS THE PLAYGROUND OF COLONIALISM — IN ITS UP-DATED CRUELTY AGAINST THE BLACK PEOPLE.

    AND SO, THE GLOBE KEEPS ROTATING ………AND THE PEOPLE THEREON EXIST WITH ARTIFICIAL EXISTENCE, EXPERT IN DISCRIMINATION, aND BELIEVING IN GOD wITH PERFECT STRAIGHT FACE, WITHOUT ANY SENSE of GUILT. INDEED, IT IS WORTH REPEATING >>> PERFECT CHARLATANRY — AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE, OF COURSE.

    AT THE RISK OF ELONGATING MY DIATRIBE, I WISH TO ADD THAT THE VICTIMS AND THE ANTAGONISTS ARE BOTH BLACK AFRICANS OF THE sO-cALLED HIGHEST QUALITY OF EDUCATION BUT ABSOLUTELY OBLIVION oF WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO THEMSELVES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! absolute Self- Hypnotism !!!!

  2. May I suggest what is going on here? UN/WFP is complicit in the “theft”of fuel. 1/ UN agencies and USAID, State Department have unreservedly been complicit in Tplf crimes. 2/ The reason UN/WFP is reporting it as “theft” is purely for public relations purposes. 3/ Interestingly, the “theft” took place at a time when Tplf is waging war against Ethiopian government. This does not require a nuclear scientist to decipher. What it tells you is the condescending attitude of western agencies and nations toward Africans. Ethiopian government and Ethiopian patriots should go on the offensive on social media to expose the hypocrisy and meddling in the internal affairs of a sovereign country!

    So What?!?!?!?
    DEAR INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS and, in particular, WESTERN POWERS.
    Are you Really Surprised?
    Be Honest, please
    I know, there is no honesty in International Affairs
    But just as a MIRACLE, why not admit that the ” WESTERN POWERS.” are behind the wheel for time immemorial.
    The Leaders of Dear Tigrayans, who are known for their unique smartness, think they can Manipulate the western Powers. ha ha ha ha ha …….. It is a joke of the century.

    May ETHIOPIA, in its Historical ENTIRETY, come back again reflecting the past Ethiopian Heroes , admired by History for bravery, Unity with diversity. Take the Emperorship and Queens of the Past.
    Tigray had its proud share of the GLORIOUS HISTORY of Ethiopia. Tigray has the Historical Honour of being the Birth Place of Atse Yohannes of Tigray, who turned out to be Emperor of Ethiopia. It is a SOLID History of fact that cannot be taken Lightly, nor set aside.

    Tigray, is a FOUNDATION of Ethiopia along with other notable parts of Ethiopia of equal Stature. This fact Cannot be Denied, nor taken Lightly, by ambitious individuals for their own glory. THIS should not happen to glorious ETHIOPIA that the world knows and respect. Let history be the judge.

    Footnote
    Demeaning Ethiopia is actually being Disrespectful to Thyself and a laughing stock of the world, who have the habit of Denigrating us because of our skin colour. Any inclination Opposite to that has eVERYTHING to do with our Natural Resources on our Beautiful African Land. Our reaction to that has everything to do with our success for ourselves by ourselves. It is possible, unless you tell me that the innumerable Ph D ‘s are just for the ‘birds’. Is it!?!?!? OH! LORD have mercy upon us.

  4. UN IS SUPPLYING TRUCKS AND FUEL AND SHOULD FEEL VERY PROUD IN ASSISTING tPLF wITH ITS GENOCIDAL WAR AGAINST THE aMHARA AND AFAR. tHOUSANDS OF TRUCKS AND TRUCK LOADS OF FOOD SUPPLIED SO FAR. the uN is supplying fresh proof to the current generation of youth that it is just one tool of neo-colonial forces.

  5. Nobody stole anything. My homeboys Debre and his comrades just took back what WFP had borrowed from them during the last two years. In fact UN and its agencies have borrowed 9,650,000 liters of gasoline since November, 2020.
    That was what my hommies told me this afternoon.
    Hey Ittu, did they tell you where they got all that gasoline from?
    They have huge underground refineries(the world’s first and only) scattered throughout the region.
    Where do they get the raw petroleum from?
    From the international waters of the Red Sea which is connected to the refineries with pipelines buried 3 miles underground.
    Whoa! That is some technology stuff.
    Yes, my hommies are the ones who have the technology.
    How so?
    Because they are the ‘gold race’, not ‘golden’ but 24 carat gold. My Oromos and their Amhara neighbors are made of the rusty ferric oxide. That is why we don’t which way is up!
    So my hommies told me they ain’t thieves. This is all false accusation by the UN secretary office and my hommies will get Stéphane Dujarric fired soon. How dare he call the ‘gold’ race thieves?
    Btw, my hommies also told me they will be on their way to Addis/Finfine and march into Addis/Finfine by the end of next week. This time they ain’t nothing stoppin’ us now, they told me!!! Then they return my Oromos to where they come from, Madagascar. Amharas will be tossed away to their place of origin, The Philippines. Afars will be repatriated to Oman because they are Dhofaris and Somalis to where they came from, Socotra and the Maldives. Case closed.

  6. But seriously it makes me wonder why this official and his organization decided to bemoan the theft of fuel and food aid inventory at this time. Debre and his rag tags have been stealing cans of sardines and boxes of crackers for years going back to the 1980’s. Even right after the current conflict erupted there were hundreds of trucks fully loaded with food and medicine with full tanks that never made it back. To Debre and his cabals stealing is not just a onetime violation but it has been habitual they will not give up. For most part they have been very crafty. That is why it has been extremely difficult to trace those $30 plus in US dollars that were pilfered from the nation’s coffers in less than a decade between 2000 and 2018. There should be a sequel movie made to ‘How To Marry a Millionaire’ titled ‘How To Steal Billions’ starring Walrus Getachew and Beer Gut Debre with supporting roles by Amhara and Oromo actors as their beasts of burden.
