    Oromos have already said what needs to be said on gantuus. On my part I don’t oppose oromos going home as long as they are not part of the fascist apartheid regime in the name of the oromo people.
    These people have declared they want to be and will/should be treated accordingly if and when they do. I will never advice oromos to treat these them differently from those who killed the tens of thousands fallen oromos in the hands of the wayannne regime.

    Hats off for Prof. Mararaa Gudina and Obbo Bulchaa Damaksa! At least principled, home based opponents who refused to be part of the regime that exploits their people! The leco gang is only after their pocket and never contributed ANYTHING positive in their entire lives for oromo movement and unity. I have more respect even for OPDO than the leaders of this gang whose name has never been away from oromo division- the one and only aim of oromo’s arch enemies who are currently waging war on oromo with their new found propaganda tools. Anyone who thinks the lencho gang would bring anything positive for oromo people in that country is only a fool! Good riddance!

    It is embarrassing that ODF unable to distinguish between question for citizenship and question for the rights of citizens.
    Question for citizenship rises when non citizen wants to be a citizen of the country, but who is asking for citizenship never demands or promises to democratization of the country; rather promises to accept and be loyal to the existing constitution of that country regardless it’s political, economical and social situations (whether it is democratic or dictator, rich or poor country).

    So, it is unusual and odd that ODF is mixing three different concepts and steps which never can be happen at same time:
    1. Applying for citizenship, means not citizen.
    2. Demanding citizen’s rights, promising to democratize and write new history in the country it is not yet citizen.
    3. Deciding to participate in the next election before being citizen.

    As to my understanding, question of democratization or citizens’ rights is completely different from asking for citizenship. Moreover, it is more higher when comes to the Oromo question in the Ethiopian empire. It is a national question, question of identity and self determination.

    Concerning differences between ODF and other Oromo organizations in the country, obbo Leencoo unable to explain nothing new except simply repeating or paraphrasing what has been written, said and tried by those organizations.

    ODF is dreaming freedom and liberty from gun holders by laying down their own gun.This is paradox , i wonder why the could not do this right after the sell out of OLA!

  8. Waqjiraa Gudataa  February 3, 2014 at 2:46 am

    Galatoomi Obbo Yaadasaa,
    Congura, NO one better than you perfectly understood a long time ago the hidden move of the so-called ODF founders as against Oromo national struggle for Liberty and rule of law and hence the Oromo nation owe you a great respect for your our national vigilance. Great job while we kept it in silence as not to expose our internal matters, but today we are not going to watch when Oromiyya is FOR the SALE masked by outdated politics-Citizen ships and Group Rights only to save the dying empire. If that was the case, today Scottish never going for referendum in a fully protected Rights in UK OR since for the last 20years how many nations restored their lost identities?, for ODF none while history registors only three in Africa and Six only in Ex Yugoslavia. That is really how the world is changing fast for liberty from a suffocated nations and nationalities such as Ethiopian empire.
    Therefore, democracy and rule of law is not in their agenda for the ODF as much as Habasha, but only for personal interest. True, Disable ODF created by enemies via Prof. Efrem Isaak and Abba Biyya which walks only by one foot and breathes by enemy lungs. simply to put it ODF is an enemy agent based on facts as follows;
    a/ the sole planners behind the OLA tragedy in 1993 which every true Oromo never ever forgive,/ Leencco & Dimaa/
    b/ their infamous letter of condolence for Malasaa while Thousands of innocent Oromos killed or jailed. Did they/ODF/ demands justice for the suffering Oromos?, None, the trend will increase when ODF joins the TPLF,
    c/ their style of coconut politics/dancing between our enemies/ on the rise to get a royalty credit from both Habashas as well documented on Ethiomedia under the name of “Mulata Gudata” /Fayyis Oromia/. It is a kind of surrendering letter addressed to our enemies, if by such hummilated begging the may attain our freedom, the Oromo nation never consider it as a victory rather slavery as if our destiny depends on enemies hand. Therefore, we need to rise up for our national interest including against our internal enemies by:
    -exposing ODF as an enemy agent,
    – isolate it and take a proper peaceful action against it,
    -establish internal and external vigilance on their move/ODF/ by well coordinated Oromiyaan networks and fire up a national struggle for our national destiny as we have shown this year as a very coordinated Oromiyaan forces.
    NO trust ODF!,
    Oromiyaa shall be free!

    Harka fuune yaa foroottan koo.

    We know the need our people. It is wise to plan to attain your need based on current facts. Do not accuse history, just let us learn from eat and look forward. We know all chances OLF missed all mistakes they have done. At least they tried their best and also contribute for current Oromuma and enyummaa among our people at home. You and me, let stop fighting against leaders who spent their life for Oromo cases. With all mistakes done, still they deserve respects from us all. They are not studying in EU or US nor working to bring up their families in Western factories. They laid their life for Oromo cases. They tried whatr looked feasible to them. Today they are also trying anything looked possible way to win the struggle. I ask you, please look at the glass being half full instead of half empty. Let us give them another chance to try. Let us stop waging a war of words against them rather let support all who through a STONE for the case of our people.

    BTW I am not a supporter of any group but simple Oromo person

    Galli keenya motummaas hin yaadessu mormittu biyya kessa jiranis hin yaaddessu jechuun maalinni?. Kan motummaa hin yaaddesine taanan nuti mormitu miti jechuudha. Hikkoon isa.

  12. Bulti  February 3, 2014 at 7:41 am

    Jimma,
    The mission of ODF is not to shield oromos from apartheid fascists wayyanee terror but to to take advantage of oromo people and shield the regime! This is the only meaning of “galli keenyga mootumma hinyaaddessu”. It means we are their puppets, their tools to further extend exploitation of the oromo nation.

    The only way to the core is through the shield. That’s is why differ with Waaqjira, to isolate gantuus with “peaceful action”. There is no such thing as a “peaceful action” which stops deadly enemy killing you unless you surrender! Even in wayyanee jails many oromo nationals lost their lives, all organized by OPDO.

    Anyone (oromo or non-oromo) who sees a personal advantage working with wayyanes will go the full length to get rid of you and other oromos. This is the bitter fact many oromos don’t readily realize!
    Wayyaanne can not stay one day in Finfinnee without its protective shields/BARKS in the name of OPDO, soon to be joined by ODF. Think of what would happen if OPDO withdraws from govt. and all oromos stop working with wayyannee. They would all be in jail for some time but the government will eventually collapse after some turmoil.

    They can never sustain occupation of oromia without local collaborators of the regime. This is true in the history of all colonized nations.

    Therefore, oromos should never think of “peaceful” relationship with any oromo close to the regime and still get their freedom soon. You can simply not treat “peacefully” someone who kills or organizes killing of your sisters, brothers, entire families. Never works that way.

    In the case of the current gantuus oromos probably have not seen worse internal enemies in their entire history since Gabana Dache.

  14. Waqjiraa Gudataa  February 3, 2014 at 9:38 pm

    @ Bulti,
    I agree with your line of fact that we will never sit down and see when our puppets killing us, but I used “peaceful action” as code of taking aggressive action whenever our national interest being threatened . Take my word, we are in high alert for such outcome, No Gobbanas any more as far as one Oromo exists on earth. I assure you that as I have recently witnessed the anger among Oromo businessmen, Leencoo-Dimaa group never welcomed by red carpet instead as the ONLY true Gobannas in our pain history. Therefore. I call upon all Oromos in time to rise up against the worst Gobannas!
    Down with ODF!
    Oromiyaa shall be free !

  16. Bulti  February 4, 2014 at 4:50 am

    Waaqjira galatoomi!

    Got your point, obboleessa! All nations gained their freedom by war and oromos are doing just that. And in wars there are always two sides. No one can fire from both sides of the front and be trusted from the waring parties, and ODF has made their choice clear, to surrender to the enemy and fire at oromos from aggressor’s camp. Oromos are now at war with them just like they are at war with wayannees and OPDO. In fact regime collaborators are by far the worst of enemies. They may appear your friends during the day but sleep with the regime at night.

    In the case of dima-lencho there is no child in oromia who doesn’t know them for fiasco, disaster and political stupidity. As graduates of the school of fear they may pose no threat to wayanes but must be taken seriously by oromos.

    Nothing can stop the train of oromo liberation!

  17. Nassir  February 4, 2014 at 6:59 am

    What a crap he is talking. They still think they can fool the large people of oromo. They probably don’t have 200 members on their book and talks about struggling for oromos. ODF is a self servant group of people who are looking to maximise their individual gain. It might be the best deal for a guy from a butcher shop…..

  18. GH  February 4, 2014 at 11:22 am

    Since 1992 the names Leencho and Dima have become synonymous with failure, deception, opportunism, division of oromos and incapability to lead. That’s why the gentle men turned away from oromos and applied for better paying job with wayanee as they can no longer be trusted by the people. They offer no threat to wayane, that’s true.

  19. GH  February 4, 2014 at 12:21 pm

    “We pose no threat to wayane” means “we are their EMPLOYEES!”, their spy agents.
    Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

    ኢትዮጵያዊው ቱጃር ለለውጥ ብለው በኮንትራት ታክሲ በመሄድ ላይ ናቸው። እሳቸውን የጫነው ታክሲ መስቀል
    አደባባይ ላይ ሲደርስ በድንገት ቀጥ ብሎ ቆመ። ሾፌሩ ተደናጋጠ። መኪናውን እንደገና ለማስንሳት ብዙ ሞከረ። ከብዙ
    ሙከራ በኋላ ጥረቱ ስላልተሳካለት ቱጃሩን ለትብብር ጠየቃቸው። እንዲህ ሲል። “ወጣ ብለው ይግፉ።” ቱጃሩ በመገረም
    ሾፌሩን አዩት። “ይግዙ” ማለትህ ነው ሲሉም መለሱለት። እኚህ ሰው መኪናውን ከመግፋት ይልቅ አዲስ መኪና መግዛት
    ይቀላቸዋል። የቤቶች ድራማ ላይ እከ ደከ አስር ጊዜ “እኔን ነው?” የሚለው ወዶ አይደለም። ማመን የሚቸግሩንን ነገሮች
    ማጣራት ስንፈልግ እንደጋግማለን።
    በዚያን ሰሞን በኦቦ ሌንጮ ለታ የወጣው ዜና ብዙዎችን አስገርሟል።
    “ሃገር ቤት ገብተን በመታገል አዲስ ታሪክ እንሰራለን።” የሚል ነበር የዜና እወጃው ርዕስ። ይህን ርዕስ እንዳየሁ
    አይኔን በደንብ ጠረግ ጠረግ አደረግኩና እንደገና አነበብኩት።
    “ታሪክ እንሰራለን” የሚለው ሃረግ በስህተት የሰፈረ ነበር የመሰለኝ። ሌንጮ ለማለት የፈለጉት “ታሪክ እናነባለን”
    ይሆናል በሚል ጥርጣሬ ደጋግሜ ያየሁት። ያነበብኩት ነገር ትክክል ነው። ይህንኑ ቃል ከራሳቸው አንደበትም ሠማሁ።
    በስህተት የሰፈረ ዜና አልነበረም። ታሪክን ማንበቡም ሆነ መስራቱ ቀርቶ “ሃገር ቤት ገብተን አዲስ ታሪክ እንጽፋለን።”
    የሚል ቢሆን እንኳን ግርታውን ይቀንሰው ነበር።
    በፍትህ ሳይሆን ይልቁንም በአዋጅ በምትተዳደር ኢትዮጵያ፤ እጅና እግራቸውን ብቻ ይዘው በመግባት ታሪክ
    መስራት የሚችሉ ከሆነ በምትሃት አልያም በመለኮታዊ ሃይል ብቻ መሆን አለበት። ሌንጮ ሃገር ቤት ገብተው ሰላማዊ
    ትግል ለማድረግ መወሰናቸው ላይ ምንም ችግር የለብኝም። የዚህ ውሳኔ ትክክለኝነት የሚዳኘው አስቀድመው በሚተቹ እና
    በሚተነብዩ የፖለቲካ ነብያት አይደለም። ፍርድ የሚሰጠው ሂደቱ በተግባር ሲፈተን ብቻ ይሆናል። ይህን ለማየት ደግሞ
    ብዙም ሩቅ አይሆንም። በጎረበጠ የፖለቲካ መንገድ ላይ ጉዞ ለማድረግ ወደ ሃገር ቤት ለመግባት መወሰናቸው ግን አስመራ
    ላይ፤ በሻእቢያ ከታገቱት የኦነግ መሪዎች የተሻለ ውሳኔ ይመስላል። ታሪክ ለመስራት አስመራ የመሸጉት እነ ዳውድ ኢብሳ
    ታሪክ ሆነው ቀርተዋል።
    ችግሩ ያለው “ታሪክ እንሰራለን” ማለቱ ላይ ነው። እንደዚህ አይነት የፖለቲካ ትግል ውሳኔ ላይ መድረስ ቀላል
    ነገር አይደለም። ከመቅጽበት የመጣው ይህ ውሳኔ ልክ እንደ ኦሎምፒክ ውድድር ዝግጅቱን እንዳጠናቀቀ አትሌት
    ይመስላል። አትሌቲክስም ቢሆን የአካል ብቃትና በቂ ዝግጅትን ይጠይቃል። ፖለቲካ ደግሞ ዘው ብለው ገብተው ታሪክ
    የሚሰሩበት በኦሎምፒክ የውድድር መድረክ አይደለም። እነ ሌንጮ እየነገሩን ያሉት አዲስ አበባ ገብተው በባላገሩ አይደል
    ላይ ለመወዳደር አይደለም። በባላገሩ የጫወታ ደንብ ጥሩ ስራ የሰራም፤ አስቀያሚ ስራ የሰራም ይሸለማል። ሌንጮ ታሪክ
    እንሰራለን የሚሉት “ስልጣን ወይንም ሞት!” የሚል መፈክር አንግቦ እስካፍንጫው የታጠቀ ሃይልን በመጋፈጥ ነው። 2

    ታሪክን ለመስራት ብቃት ያላቸው ድርጅቶች በኢትዮጵያ የፖለቲካ መድረክ ጠፍተው አያውቁም። ከኦሮሞ
    ድርጅቶችም ቢሆን እነ ኦቦ ቡልቻ ደመቅሳ እና ፕ/ር መረራ ጉዲና አሉ። የኦሮሞን ህዝብ አደራጅተው በምርጫም፣
    በፓርላማም፣ በሰልፍም፣ በእርግማንም፣ በጸሎትና ምልጃም፣ በወረቀትም … ብዙ ተጉዘዋል። የእነዚህ ድርጅቶች አባላት
    እንደጥጃ እየተለቀሙ እስር ቤቱን ከማጨናነቃቸው በቀር ታሪክ ሲሰሩ አላየንም። አንድ እርምጃ ወደፊት፤ አስር እርምጃ
    ወደኋላ እየተጓዙ ሄደው…ሄደው በመጨረሻ ራሳቸውም ታሪክ ከመሆን አላለፉም። ይህ ለአቶ ሌንጮ ለታ እንግዳ ነገር
    አይደለም። አቶ ሌንጮ በኢትዮጵያ የፖለቲካ መድረክ በከባድ ሚዛን ደረጃ የሚመደቡ ናቸው።
    በዛሬይቱ ኢትዮጵያ በፖለቲካ ታግሎ ታሪክ ከመስራት ይልቅ ነድጅ ቆፍሮ ታሪክ መስራት እንደሚቀል ለሌንጮም
    አዲስ ነገር አይደለም። እርግጥ ነው። የታሪክ ትርጉም አሰጣጣችን ላይ እንለያይ ይሆናል። የገዥው ፓርቲ የታሪክ
    ትርጉምም ከልማት ጋር ይያያዛል። በዘመናችን ብዙ ታሪኮችን እየሰማን ነው። ልማታዊ አስተሳሰብ ያለው ሰው ሁሉ ዛሬ
    ታሪክ ሰሪ ይባላል። ታሪክ ሰርተው የሚሸለሙ የልማት አርበኞችን በቴሌቭዥን እናያለን። በአነስተኛና ጥቃቅን እየተደራጁ
    የኮብል-ስቶን ድንጋይን እያናገሩ ያሉ ወጣት ምሁራንም በታሪክ መዝገብ ላይ እየሰፈሩ ይገኛል።
    ኦቦ ሌንጮ ታሪክ የሚሉን እንዲህ አይነቱን ድራማ እንደማይሆን እርግጠኞች አይደለንም። እኝህ የፖለቲካ መሪ
    ታሪክ መስራት ከነበረባቸው ግዜው አሁን አይደለም። በሽግግሩ ዘመን 20 ሺህ ጦር እና 20 መቀመጫ ይዘው በነበሩበት
    ጊዜ ለዚህ እድሉ ነበራቸው። ያንን እድል ይዘው ታሪክ ከመስራት ይልቅ ድርጅታቸው ጥቁር ነጥብ ጥሎ ነበር ያለፈው።
    አቶ ሌንጮ ታሪክ መስራት ከነበረባቸው በሽግግሩ መንግስት የኢትዮጵያ መሪ ሆነው በተመረጡ ግዜ ነበር። በወቅቱ ምን
    ነበር ያሉት? “በዚህ ላይ አልተዘጋጀሁበትም።” ሲሉ የእድሉን በር ራሳቸው ዘጉት። በርግጥ ያን ጊዜ ከኦሮሚያ የመገንጠል
    አዙሪት ውስጥ አልወጡም ነበር። ትልቅ ህዝብን ይዘናል እያሉ፤ የመገንጠል ጥያቄን ሲያነሱ በአለም ላይ የመጀመሪያዎቹ
    ብቻ አይደሉም። የኦሮሞን ህዝብ በፖለቲካ አናሳ ማድረጋቸው የታያቸውም ከ40 አመታት በኋላ መሆኑ ነው። በዚያን
    ወቅት ኢትዮጵያን መምራት እንችላለን ለማለት በራስ መተማመን አልነበራቸውም። አንድ ሰው አንድ ድምጽ በሚል መርህ
    ምርጫ አድርገው ከመጓዝ ይልቅ፤ እንደ አናሳ ጎሳ “መገንጠል አለብን” የሚል ያታሪክ ስህተት ውስጥ ነበሩ።
    ከኦሮሞ ነጻ አውጭ ግንባር ወጥተው የኦሮሞ ዲሞክራቲክ ግንባርን መመስረታቸው ከታሪክ ተወቃጭሽነት
    ሊያድናቸው ይችላል ። ይህንን በማድረጋቸው የሰማይና የምድርን ያህል ርቆ የነበረውን የፖለቲካ መስመር ሊያጠበው
    እንደሚችል ግልጽ ነው። ዛሬ የመገንጠልን ጥያቄውን ውድቅ አድርገው ለዲሞክራሲና ለፍትህ መታገል መምረጣቸው ታሪክ
    ሰሪ ሊያደርጋቸው አይችልም። ይህ ሊሆን የሚችለው ለውጥ አምጥተው ፍትሃዊ ስርዓት ማስፈን ሲችሉ ብቻ ነው።
    ሌንጮ ለታ አዲስ አበባ በመግባት ታሪክ እሰራለሁ ሲሉ ይህ የመጀመርያቸውም አይደለም። እ.ኤ.አ. 1993 የስራ
    ባልደረባቸውን ከከርቸሌ ለማስፈታት አዲስ አበባ ዘው ብለው ገብተው ነበር። እኝህ ሰው ሲገቡ ቦሌ ላይ ልዩ አቀባበል
    ተደረገላቸው። በብረት ተጠፍረውም ከርችሌ ተወረወሩ። በወቅቱ አዲስ አበባ ላይ ተካሂዶ በነበረው የግዮኑ የሰላም እና
    እርቅ ጉባዔ ላይ ለመሳተፍ ሲገቡ የታሰሩ ልኡካንን እዚያው ተቀላቀሉ።
    ሌንጮ በዚያ ሰዓት ታሪክ ይሰራሉ ብለን ጠብቀን ነበር። ግን ይቅርታ ጠይቀው ከእስር ለመውጣት አንድ
    ሳምንትም አልፈጀባቸውም። በወቅቱ ከአቶ ሌንጮ ለታ ጋር ረጅም ቃለ-መጠይቅ አድርጌ ይህንን ታሪክ በማሳትመው
    ጋዜጣ ላይ ለህዝብ ይፋ አድርጌዋለሁ። እርግጥ ነው። የሌንጮ ለታ ፖለቲካ እውቀት የሚደነቅ ነው። በፖለቲካ 3

    ብስለታቸውና ትንተናቸው ከማደንቃቸው የፖለቲካ ሰዎች አንዱ ናቸው። ፖለቲካ ማወቅ እና ህዝብን መምራት ግን በጣም
    የተለያዩ ነገሮች ናቸው። ብዙውን ግዜ የሰዎችን የፖለቲካ ብቃት የምንለካው በንግግር ችሎታው ብቻ ነው። ጥሩ የፖለቲካ
    መሪ አስተዋይም መሆን አለበት። የመሪ አስተዋይ አለመሆን ደግሞ ችግር የመፍታት ብቃታ ማጣቱን ነው የሚያሳየን።
    ኦነግ ከ40 አመታት በላይ በትግል ላይ እንደሆነ ይነገረን እንጂ ድርጅቱ ድል አድርጎ አይተን አናውቅም። የሽግግሩን
    መንግስት ላይም ቢሆን የተገኘው በድል አድራጊነት ሳይሆን ከህወሃት እና ከሻእቢያ ጥሪ ተደርጎለት ነበር።
    በአሁኑ የአዲስ አበባ ጉዞ ሌንጮ እንደቀድሞው ልዩ አቀባበል ላይገጥማቸው ይችላል። በእርግጠኝነት ለመናገር
    ከጉዞው በፊት አንዳች ቅድመ ሁኔታዎች ወይንም ስምምነቶች ይኖራሉ። ይህ ካልሆነ ግን እኝህን ሰው በቀይ መስመር ላይ
    ማስቆም ወይንም ደግሞ ማኖ ማስነካቱ አይቀሬ ነው። እሳቸውን ቀይ መስመር ላይ ለማቆስም በጣም ቀላል ነው።
    የበደኖው፣ የዋተሩና የአርባጉጉ ፋይሎች እየተመዘዙ ማውጣት ብቻ ይበቃል። አልያም ቦሌ ላይ እነ ዋልታ ብቅ ብለው
    በካሜራ ይቀበሏቸዋል። ልማቱን እንዲያደንቁ ይጠየቃሉ። በእስር ያሉ ወገኖችና “ሽብርተኞች”ን ማውገዛቸውም የግድ ነው።
    በዚህ መስመር ላይ ከሄዱ “አባ ጸበል ይርጩን” ብለው እንደገቡት እንደነ ስም አይጠሬ ተዋርደው ይመለሱና የፖለቲካ
    ሞትን ዳግም ይቀምሷታል።
    ለእንደዚህ አይነቱ “ልማታዊ” የተቃውሞ አስተሳሰብ ሳይገዙ ታሪክ መስራት ከተቻለ ግን ተአምር ይሆናል።
    ለማንኛውም መልካም ጉዞ…

    Haasanumti inni lammaffaa kuni maal nutti hima dhaaba manguuddo ta’u malee dhaaba mormitu ta’e hojjatu miti. “Consulting firm” fakaata. Yaaduma “professor Efreem” kaasu irra adda miti. Innis akkanatti dubateeti isaani waliin taa’e nyaatu. Malee akka mormitu jala dhaabatani namoota mormani miti. TPLF gorsa isaanitti hin fudhatti jennan lakki. Fudhate jennaan “minority” taati. Sagaleen ishee -sidaama fi sumaalee hincaalu (based on demography and economic contribution). Yomiyyu tolaan kuni hinta’u.Yaada akkanaa kan hojii irra olchu danda’u isa barcuma guddaa qabudha. Filannonis itti dhufan akka hin midhamne “manipulate” gochu danda’a. In short, for me, ODF is a consulting firm or elders organization not opposition party. What makes different from other firms is it has “congress”. Waanuma akkanaa dhagenye hinbeeknu. Bubuluun gaaridha.

    If this ODF can give our people equal rights and self rule then viva odf
    Otherwise we have to fight until we are free. Olf is sleeping for 20 years so anyone awake and moving is good for oromia

    So the frustrated Leencoo-Dimaa isolated group where and how to Return?.
    Ask the Naftegnas as an Ethiopian said above. At least they are already “Tuujarroota” by Oromo blood, but their return reminds me the late Nicolae Ceausecu’s return when all Romanian and Hungarians up rised once for all against the visionless leaders. Our enemies except TPLF already showing them up a cold shoulder let alone their making history is only a dream, but Leencoo and Dimaa soon start to read a failed history.
    Now where to return?, to Finfinnee palace or Mekele asylum center?. In 1991, the Oromo nation from every corner of Oromiyaa welcomed them with Olive palm proud, but two years later they killed us and walked out on our dead body. Now after 20 years for another killing?. Gobanna Daachee only once killed us, here if we want to survive as a nation, we have to stop the 2nd killing before it is going to late.
    They/our gantuus/ may go back as a losers, but never ever again win the hearts and minds of the Oromo nation any more as the latest interview of Omar Suleyman and our popular musician An. Mohammed “Hin maqu kaaraarraa” showed the realty of our anger and the only power who can command our destiny-the qubee generation and the true fathers of our movement with the very determined the Oromo nation. In only 40 years of bitter struggle, we achieved the result of more than 300 years as much as Scottish nationalism where NO compromise ever take place. The Oromo nation ONLY can make history while galtuus the readers of failed history1

    @Adama,

    ODF can give you equal rights? you showed your ignorance. How can they give you rights which they don’t have in the first place? They might be assigned some rights to spy on oromos that’s all. Even on that they are too stupid to be trusted by their employers!
