    He could have said many things ,but seems that he’s been brainwashed by some stuff … The lady from Kenya intentionally asked him about the nomadic stuff … Mohammed should have defended that ….but he was almost telling them that Oromos are nomads . I was really embarrassed .

    …… the moderator was mocking him that he wasted the 1st 5 minutes without explaining anything abt Oromo people. Before the show , Mohammed should talk to Oromo scholars who can tip him

    Dear Mohammed, what you did is so huge!!! It is an indication that we as Oromo have a generation who can push hard and take our issue to global stage.And the fact that the stream folks have no idea of Oromo world is not shocking to me but a wake up call for all our politicians, journalists, activists writers, and schoilars that it is time to start switching the gear. Meeting, meeting, meeting… among Oromo is just getting too much where we never have a single journalist reporting. I am not talking about big things like Al-Jazeera, CNN. Am talking about local reporters, at least students. Otherwise, no offense, our gatherings are just like family gathering!
    Waiting for the next big thing Mohammed keenya!

    The Oromo people produced prominent personalities in arts, sports and in politics for a number of years. We ar now witnessing the emergence of new generation with the world class journalistic knowledge educating the world about Oromo people. Journalists and activists can make enormous diferences in promoting Oromo case at world stage. Mohamed you did it and I am pround of you.

    Did anyone say anything about the real and common enemies of the Oromo people on so far comments? I didn’t see enough if not few! But I saw many unnecessary comments that look have got their own destructive missions right from this start.

    I have never expected we negatively comment on this young man who showed us the degree of efforts he made to bring the Oromo cause to the global stage, a promising work many of our organizations and scholars couldn’t succeed doing it, probably for so many reasons we could mention if need be. Iā€™m not here to criticize that!
    Mind you if we write and read it day and night, unless our case and cause is elevated and entertained on the stage ran by other international medium, and spoken by others like Al-Jazeera, and the likes, for which this one seems very encouraging as everyone can guess, we won’t go very far in the world full of injustice like today. I don’t want to be understood wrongly, that I’m not saying it’s enough to be heard on the international arena to resolve such complicated problem like we have, I’m saying it is good to be heard on these medium, so that when we struggle for our rights, the world knows what we are striving for, and once it is out there, nobody can take it back, it would stay there for the international consumption, until some day somehow our cause may be served international justice, though for that our unity and strength we gain from that unity is the decisive factor for us to win our own battle. Let the world know what we lost, but once had, and now struggle to get it back from the forces snatched it from us!
    This stage is important to do this job, and everybody else should support and contribute to it for it isn’t rather easy to fight such intellectual and scholar powers which possibly could appear maybe on the same media to refute and even accuse us for mentioning these historical and political claims we made and fight for on the same stage as such.
    So, I would suggest to all that, we make good preparation for the inevitable fight we are going to face back from the most advert powers, which part that we expect to be played by our scholars, and for that this may be could be seen as the critical time when the Oromo; especially the educated ones join hands in unity to confirm to the world that the Oromo people needs justice that the world gave deaf ears to since long time, and now it should be time when they could see that we are the power that is suppressed by another minority force, for a long time, and that this time should be over, for this time is when the world started to observe our case through these international medium these young men are trying to use as such!
    I would say that the time when we insult and demoralize each other should be over, and we should turn our face towards the common enemy, that would appear sooner or later to falsify our claims, and tries to continue lying to the world in the way they used to do for centuries and confuse the world from seeing the truth about us!
    I want to thank Al-Jazeera for creating this forum and trying to dig out the truth about this nation, and hope that they will continue with searching for the lasting truth than the false and fictions told by the enemies of it!
