(Sidama National Regional State) ‘Imprisoning the weakest groups of criminals leaving key players makes no change in Sidama land and beyond’The unsettling situation unfolding in Sidama region is becoming worse than it’s even been since TPLF led regime assumed power in June 1991. The discontents between the regime’s regional/Sidama Zone authorities who are labouring day and night to implement their and their federal bosses’ anti-Sidama policy on federalising Sidama capital city which has been vigorously rejected by the Sidama people of all walk of life on one hand; ongoing Sidama nation’s constitutional quest for regional self-administration on the other- makes the situation so complicated and profoundly difficult. To date the regime’s illegal and non-representative cadres are plotting against the rights of the Sidama nation -seriously undermining their own constitution which states otherwise.
The inner sources from Sidama land discloses this evening that the regime is showing that it isn’t resting at all.
The current Ethiopian PM Hailemariam Desalegn (who was elevated to his current position for his unlawful actions against Sidama nation immediately after the Looqqe massacre) who is key player during the said massacre of hundreds of purely Sidama civilians (amounting genocide), is once again recklessly plotting for another massacre whilst the 12th anniversary (May 24, 2014) is just under 4 months away.
Currently, the cadres are beating war-drum in Sidama land and the situation might not be as easy as they might think, simply because the power and determinations of wounded Tigers and Tigress can’t a simple one. They don’t understand the extent of Sidama nations’ psychological preparation for their ongoing issues involving defending its ancestral land from being taken away without price. The indefatigability of the nation shouldn’t be underestimated although the weapon with which the regime slaughters civilians is heavier than the Sidama nation can put up with. However, the Sidama nation has got the power of will and purpose, therefore they can defy odds to convincingly defend their rights; if the need arises.
As the regime itself is uncontrollably shaking, playing such game with the Sidama nation might prove that its interests of the amalgamated south will be at stake if the situation gets to whole scale conflicts which will be inevitable if the regime continues with its constitutionally unlawful actions against the right of the Sidama nation.
The source from Sidama disclose this evening that they regime is also confusing things by arresting the least wanted groups of corrupt employed cadres so that the attentions of the Sidama nation diverts from more important issues to somewhere else whilst they are undertaking their hidden meeting which is due to take place in Hawassa town on February 19, 2014, the source says.
Additionally the source elaborates that the regional TPLF cadres are testing the strength of Sidama’s TPLF cadres by advising them to remove their administrative capital from Hawassa to somewhere else which hasn’t yet to be seen.
The following is from face book information posted by the one of the trusted Sidama personnel whose information is reliable and accurate.
