      Hima diddeen du’a hindidu jedhanni worri keeyna!!
      Where ever Oromos stand as a community they stand at least in two or three places. So OMN can not be the exception, lets have it in tow or three places and then our Oromiya will be in the same mode after all Oromo is big enough community and Oromiya is big enough country to to be in three or even four places.

      I stand for Oromos’ right respected in firm Ethiopian unity anything of Oromo independence is a recipe for disaster get it now or you are never born to get anything until you see it by a means of touch like the desperate blind. The case of Oromo independence will make the conflict of South Sudan pale in comparison if it happens today, God forbid I never wish it even for a second simply because i wish all the best for my people not eternal conflagration in the name of independence.

      Some Oromo elites and leadership are a curse to the oromo people and a disaster to the land we come from. May God give as the light, since we seem to be hopeless bunches trudging in darkness.

      Wayane is very happy that the window of opportunity is opened to attack OMN, oromo nationalists and the oromo people. Wayane cadres are crowling on this and other oromo websites pretending oromos to tell the people not to support OMN.

      Foolish Wayane, die with your dilusional dream. We shall double our financial support to OMN-the Voice of Oromo people.
      Wayane can not win this war.

    They have no clue about media but they have been leading OMN for 8 Months. Most of all The editor in chief Lives in Australia he has not done nothing all the efforts where made by Abdi Fixe, Ahmedyasin Ali, Fuad sir, Alamaayoo Qana ,Lalisee Kasahun, and Usman Ukume.

    First, I want to wish Long live Oromo Media Network and want to thank tireless hard working Media team working with limited resource to keep this very young Media on the air and I hope to see that continue. As far as OMN director resignation,While his decision to leave OMN is respected, I am surprised to see for such minor issue which can arise with any public organization and can be resolved internally to go public by Dr. Hamza and wage attack by name calling on an individuals who has contributed the most to this organization is shame disgrace that is not expected of a professor who has thought Harvard for 15 years like he puts it. I think Dr. Hamza has a responsibility as mature educated person to mentor, guide and teach patience than to be inpatient and go on attack not only a person but also degrading the media to entertain our enemies who have attempted to take us off the air and their cadres who work tirelessly to make this happen. For Oromo enemies out there, please do not be thrilled by this as if end of Oromo Media. Oromo Media will live for ever and struggle will continue.

    I don’t know their by-laws but normally the chair of Bord must have full authority over who runs the office.
    I can’t imagine any individual even dares to dictate the chair of OMN. This would be an insult to the people, not the chairman.
    If what I heard is true, jahawr certainly overstepped his authority and risks being left to history by breaking what he helped make.

      Bulti the naftagna boy,
      having an oromo name is not guarantee to be a true oromian citizen.
      Jawar Mohammad had made you and your backward naftagna camp laughably paranoid.You panic any time you hear the name “Jawar Mohammad.”

      And, leave OMN alone, it does not need any advice from its diehard enemies.

    The problem with OMN is that it is populated with Jawar’s Ethiopianist cliques like Fekadu Moreda who asked our Oromo-Muslim sister to remove her hijab in order to get an opportunity for interview (much less work for) with OMN as a reporter. The English say “Birds of the same feather fly together.” How true!

    If you really want to know who Fikadu Moroda is, please visit the following site and read the comments he has been making. In this story, Meron Admasu, a chauvinist Amhara-Ethiopianist, calls Oromo nationalists “these few confused individuals in Diaspora are driven by emotion and falsified stories as they are using this consequence to advance their tiny hatred against innocent Ethiopians in particular Amhara and Christian” among other things. (See more at: http://www.zehabesha.com/genuine-oromo-ethiopians-demand-under-dilemma).

    A certain “Legit” – an Oromo nationalist – pens a comment in defense of Oromo nationalist (please rad his comments at the link below.) Guess who replied on Meron’s side: It was Fekadu Moreda who said “I a Selale Oromo and have more affinity with Selale Amara than with Arsi Oromo. So, my advice is for the Aris, Bale, Wellega Oromos to create their own country leaving the affair of Shewa for us. It will be then up to us to decide whether to be with your Oromia, the Amara land or to create our own country as Addis Ababa the capital, and Nazareth (Adama), the second city. As you are seeking to be free from an Amara influence, I hope you can understand our legitimate right to be free from the influence of you guys. – Read the fourth cpmment down at http://www.zehabesha.com/genuine-oromo-ethiopians-demand-under-dilemma/.

    This is the guy – an enemy of Oromo unity and Oromo struggle for liberation – who is now managing OMN. With him and other such Ethiopianists and agents of Ethiopia (enemies of the Oromo struggle) at the helm of OMN, is it any wonder that the media works, looks and sounds more Ethiopian than Oromo?

    Forget him he is chicke n. OMN will come out strong.We don’t know him (Dr.Hamza) before and we just heard his resignation. His Harvard experience should have helped us to overcome such obstacles. Instead, he resorted to talk trashes. He is driven by local afoshas and eders. He doesn’t know OMN have millions of supporters.

    I wonder when all those persons complain one individual. If they all can not resist one man, they are all useless.This country is free and nobody force you to side him .Either The chairman is very weak and clueless how the system of this country work or his position is a minority in the board.It became norm to us(Oromo) to protest when we fail to garnish the necessary vote.If the chairman is really knows what he has to do, he can remove the individuals by board decision. The board has legal authority to recruits and remove the executive. The one individual they all complain has no legal ground to interfere with duty of board or executive . He is not member of the neither officers. There fore not knowing their authority and responsibility, they all cry in vain.From what I observe, their is hidden hands from back that try to make divisions among Oromos. We, the Oromos, has to learn from past events. Let us understand things first before we jump into conclusions. Watch out the ALHABASHi religious woyyannee cadres! Do not forget the 700 million Diaspora budgets.

But creating a personality cult for one person or a group is dangerous and harmful. It is good to separate OMN from individuals.

    It is time to bring in nationalists with media knowledge. Bring in Oromo nationals who believe in independence of Oromia.

    “Hubataa Dubbbii, yaa dhugaa, Bultii”, everything you wrote makes sense to me.

    I am asking everyone if we are paying our money for OMN or JMN ????
    I can’t understand what authority Jawar has in OMN which allows him to interfere and dictate on the chair! Is he bord member? Oromos have lived and can live with out OMN for centuries, but Jawar has lost oromo forever, alone for disrespecting the authority of one of the best intellectuals on the globe who happens to be one us! Now he can dance once again with amharas. Oromos say thanks for your work so far but there is limit to everything!

    Even if DR. Hamza had done everything wrong (which is most unlikely), the Bord should have respected his authority. They should never have published the mess on their website without his authorization. He should be allowed to dismiss, move or replace anyone in his team in the best interest of the institution. Oromo have more confidence in Hamza than people who talk a lot.

    I have immediately sent them an email expressing my deep objection to the publication of their note, although i did not even know that they did so without the chair!

    Another point is wayane (habasha) may have failed jamming OMN but have successfully infiltrated it through Fekadu Moreda knowing that oromos are too bad in housekeeping!!!!! It is 1:0 for them! We think the agents are ours but they are paid millions of dollars by wayanee!!

    Nothing short of immediate restoration of DR. Hamza with his full authority respected and Moreda and Jawar removed from OMN can restore my confidence to pay even one cent again for this media!

    I urge oromos to use their money to directlty finance anyone on the battle field in oromia, not to hire corrupted individuals in America. After all, Wayane did not occupy oromo land through their Tigray media network!

    I wouldn’t jump on a TV to plead my case as fast as this guy did. The Oromo people need to digest what has been brewing behind our back. He had a responsibility to act in a civilized manner than trying to abdicate himself in the final hours. What is regrettable is the timing as well. All Oromo media should refrain from entertaining these kinds of foolish actions. We will over our differences, but we should give credit where credit is due.

    I admire Juaar. He is young and excellent analyzer. He played prominent role in establishing OMN. But the respect and love of our people had misguided him. He wanted to be everything. Dictators love their cause and don’t believe others accomplish the task. As a result they are unconstrained by law. I think this happened to Juaar.

    Juaar is the current OSA president.This OMN issue may spill over to OSA. I hope you will not be a cause for the downturn of two important Oromo organizations. “Juaar kenyaa”, I appeal to you to distance yourself from OMN so that the board can restructure the OMN without any interference.

    I have long anticipated the hijacking (coup de etat) of OMN but it came only too early!

    Interestingly, they did not announce on the resignation in their news (as if nothing had happened). How long would they keep “secret”. Or may be it is not “news worthy”. This on itself shows their hypocrisy!

    Whoever paid for OMN must demand bringing back Hamza or refund your money! We have not paid for a private enterprise.

    OMN had organizational problems from the start. I understand that some members of the leadership (Executive Committee and the Board of Trustees) accepted the responsibilities vested in them in good faith out of profound interest to serve the Oromo people. However, in essence OMN has been and still is the private property of one individual, Obbo Jawar. Jawar himself chose and assigned members of the Board and Executive Committee, editorial committee, journalists and other staff. As far as I know, not any election took place when the OMN leadership was announced. We do not know how they were chosen, what the criterion was and for what objective that was done. Under such circumstance, it is not uncommon that the leadership be stacked by loyalist soldiers, soft and weak individuals who do not stand for principles and in some cases incompetent individuals. I guess this might have made especially some lower level staff members believe that Obbo Jawar is the ultimate boss.

    On the other hand, who the owner of OMN is and who has the ultimate (above the Board of Trustees) say on decisions is not clear. For instance, when the current leadership ends its term of office (if there is term limit), how are they replaced? To whom does the Board report? These matters are important for the Board to do its job independently and confidently.

    My other point is in reference to Obbo Jawar’s interference into the works of the journalists, executive committee and the board as mentioned earlier by some members. I heard that this matter and some other OMN problems are under investigation and, therefore, I cannot say much until the outcome is known. But I can ask one question. Obbo Jawar does not have police or military force to intimidate some one enforce his will upon some one in the US. How can he force and censure journalists informally when he does not have any formal leadership role whatsoever whether in the Board or Executive in OMN? This is very striking.

    Why did they bow down when they were censured or forced to do some thing that they did not believe in by an individual who is not even their boss? The reason, I guess, may be:

    1. I do not think those journalists are in reality professional journalists who know their rights and duties. They were simply called in and given the task. The nature of the job is, however, strictly bound by principles and work ethics.
    2. Some staff members may be interested more in securing their employment than providing service. In this regard, they may be mindful that the formal bosses – Board and the Executive Committee members – have term limits while the informal boss will last for the life of the organization.
    3. The OMN leadership might be divided and unable to convince itself and the OMN staff members that it is the only legitimate decision making body. Such situation is frustrating for some members who try to stand by principles.

    With regard to the complaints of unnecessary interferences, we will see when the investigation is finalized. But don’t forget that the neutrality of the ad hoc investigation committee can also influence the result.

      Gelloo,

      I am not quite sure that you have credible information to base your opinion on. Your assertions are full of speculations. If I were you I would have kept quite until I find credible information from credible sources. There is a whirl wind of lies and speculations. That there has been a problem in OMN is now no secret. Many people have contributed to that problem. To put the blame on one person is regrettable. Nonetheless, steps were being taken to correct those problems. People who have been affected by the steps being taken have chosen a more destructive approach by engaging in smear tactics. It is understandable that they will not accept their own failures, but blame others. So it would be wise too wait for the investigation.

    Push for Solution rather than division.

    I didn’t want to open my mouth without assessing further information or evidences. However, some irrational comments are sickening me on this topic. On the first hand, most of us who lack the evidences could assume and acknowledge that there should be a substantial problem. Then, somebody or group could analyze and solve it. This group could be committee or other sort of body. Nonetheless, we can’t just jump on nonsense criticism against any side.

    Secondly, those who are talking about money or donation, they should think that it has nothing to do with the alleged matter. Our donation is another way of our contribution to greatest number of Oromian citizens rather than to individual servants who ever engaged in the wrong doing. Had they caused it, then we have gotten to voice up to establish independent body who can investigate and solve it. Besides, we have extra ordinary tradition to do so. However, talking about money or donation might just be another way out from serving or contributing to common goals of the Oromos. Likewise, targeting public servants like Moreda, as Hubataa Dubbii tried, is another ill approach to this matter. If he or any personnel or key personnel could be detected with wrong doing and guilty of it, they could be accountable and deserve punishment. Their standalone ideological influence could not dictate the vast number of Oromos. From my Understanding of his interview, this is What Dr. Hamza himself insisted.

    Well, I could assume most of those poor comments which are emphasizing on donation and individual servants like Mr. Moreda, might be attempting to worsen the scenario for different gain or agenda, perhaps to divide and concur or eliminate the OMN. I insist such ill dream could not go any far as it is has nothing to do with the very reason of OMN’s establishment. It could do certain immaterial harm, but it would never be a core challenge. I would rather maintain that our (the Oromo) pre-emptive economic standing could be a core challenge. Therefore, I insist that the Oromos and supporters of OMN are better to tackle such economic or financial constraints against OMN. Then we deal with other matters like personnel or board issue after ensuing blossoming of OMN. Hence, avoiding division by dealing with issues and pushing for solution is the only best approach as OMN prevails to flourish to inform its users.

    In order to solve a problem, you need to know the cause, diagnosis. I believe the problem emanates from from the very inception of institution building basics. let me be very clear:
    1) Is there any bylaw that governs OMN (states the roles and responsibilities of the different bodies: board, executive, employees etc.)?
    2) Who selected/appointed the current board or executive members and how are they be replaced if at all there is a term limit?
    I think lack of transparency on matters of the likes are very troubling and if ONM is to thrive it needs to address these issues urgently. I tend to believe the comments give above that, the current management was hand-picked by Jawar based on their percieved loyalty to him, including Dr Hamza. In the absence of a by-law that clearly delimits the roles of the different management bodies this problem would continue because each is operating with assumption and may infringe into the roles of others. BTW, I have a comment about Dr Hamza’s complaint: In general a board provides an oversight functions on matters like budget/finance, policy and strategy issue and does’t run the day-to-day activities of an institution. That is the role of the executive body. Did Dr Hamza step out of his role in the absence of clear by-law? Did Dr Hanza question the way he was picked (I am not insinuating that he does’t qualify but the way it was done)?

    Bultuum, very true!

    Everytime Jawar boasts to prove the ages old habasha adages wrong, only to end up proving them right and himself wrong! Amharas never made their claims without careful observation.

    You can teach oromos in the best western universities or train them to become the best generals, they can’t lead themselves! period! Gadaa is the only exception to this rule, and perhaps the only solution in the long term. I think this is a genetic disease. Once exposed to western education oromos progressively lose their capacity to lead. The more educated they are the worse their conditions get.

    In fact it is easier to teach donkeys to lead oromos than teach another oromo to do the same job! That is why it is a blessing for oromos that Tigres not donkeys lead them like a herd of cattle.

    Gutu, caarra, Biilaa jaara,

    Abdi,

    Very true.

    I think OMN should be eliminated if it is not serving oromo interest. That’s one reason for no donation unless Hamza is restored. Otherwise, I will never allow one cell of my brain to be touched by their propaganda, let alone donate money for them!

    If you want your independence give your money to OLA and students who die in their dormitories right away. Every thing else is in the interest of a third country or individuals, at least as it stands now. remember wayane leads oromo 100:0.

The truth will pervail in our time and we may learn someyhing the hard way. I hope this should be a teachable moment for our leaders to respect the people will against their personal appetite. From what I heard from Dr. Hamza TVOMT interview there exist a clear conflict in OMN organization which is somewhat deep rooted. For instance, how comes SOME ONE publish a letter without Dr. Hamza knowledge and confirmation and sign off under his name -faking – the whole message as if either he believes in it or actual spelled it out? For me that is way over crossing the line of the law or the decision of the person( Dr.Hamza).

    Now let us focus on how to resolve the problems and uplift the sprit of our people once again rather than dragging them down to fail. I hope the committee has to go back and reinstate Dr. Hamza with out any precondition and honestly put the house in order.

    First, they are hungry to tap into your exceptional expertise. Then, when you try to exercise it they start to shit on you as if they are the experts.

    PROPOSAL:

    From what I have heard Professor Hamza was not fired, but he resigned rather than accept a diktat from a student. Luckily for oromos Dr. Hamza made clear he wishes to serve his people in this or any area if his authority is respected.

    Clearly, his re-installment requires nothing short of full restoration and recognition of his authority, i.e. the student must first know he is a student, at least in the area of the professor’s expertise. His position makes him ultimately responsible for everything going on in the institution. This must be recognized and fully supported, even if we may not always like his decisions. A professor’s mere physical presence in class has no meaning if he can not do his work because of an unruly student.

    It is up to the remaining Bord members and Executive director to officially apologize for the mishap and invite him to serve his people in his post till the end of his term, with clear promise of support and non-interference in his duties. In my opinion, nothing else can restore public confidence in OMN.

Both sides should exercise patience and try to resolve the issue behind closed door. Did they seat down and think about it how this will be devastating to our people? This show still we are not learning from history. In 1991 our people lined behind some organization with there livelihood and life, in return they abounded the nation and runaway to there hide out in Asmara.

    I am actually surprised that OMN lasted this long given how it was formed and why it was formed.
    Here is how the story starts. Few individuals talk about establishing one major Oromo media network that can compete with Habasha network ESAT. The initiator drafts a proposal and shares with few professionals. Along the way, Jawar is also contacted. By this time, Jawar had left his Habasha study group (rather chased out from the group) and was looking for a home. Jawar reclaims Oromoness, coins his “Oromo first” manifesto and through that revelation becomes a hero to his clan lords, Ethiopianist Oromos who were in the shadows (some with criminal background working with Derg, and TPLF/OPDO), and quite a few immature and unsophisticated youth. Within a few months, Jawar becomes the liberator, the political scientist, the Oromo “Messiah”. Unbelievable overnight transformation unheard of in any written annals of world history. The new Messiah asks for the old folks to retire from OLF, OSA, Oromo community leaderships and anything Oromo leadership, for HE is now the new king. And that was how the new Oromo hero was born. The Call to Adventure has found his followers. By birth, supernatural, he’s the only one to be granted everything needed to save the retched Oromo. Cursed with such awesome powers, the new Messiah caught the hero ball and started running with it as far as he can.
    And so, when the new King heard the idea of establishing major Oromo network, he jumped on it and grabbed it by the neck. Within a few months, he clandestinely recruited his beloved clansmen and ideological soul-mates while purging those some and avoiding those whom he believed are his natural nemesis–these very bad Oromo elites. And so, started the famed OMN. It became His little toy and self advertisement forum. Unfortunately for the new tyrant, there are people of honor and integrity unsuspected and unidentified by the King and one happened to be the one chosen to be the chairman of the board. Whoever advised Jawar to chose Dr. Hamza Abdurazak, alas, The Chosen One has clearly chosen the wrong one. Consistent with his training and Oromo wisdom, Hamza exposed the new Tyrant for who he is. All in all, the Jawar fiasco reminds us of the idiom “The emperor has no clothes”.

OMN is the fist of Oromo. Your reaction tells us how much you felt the blow of OMN. You will continue to suffer until you are removed from Oromos way for national liberation. I can assure you that oromos and OMN will not be disturbed by resignation of a single individual who happens to be immature, inexperienced, and unwise.

    Constructive behavior Vs Destructive behavior!

    During infancy stage all organizations pass through conflicts. That is what we see in OMN ; nothing different. Conflicts are normal and are always predictable and are always expected! Most conflicts are productive; however, this depends on the leadership. The leader should foresee different conflicts that may occur and be prepared ahead to solve them, use them to restore normalcy in the organization,and even utilize them for positive outcome beyond solving conflicts and restoring normalcy; that is one of the quality of a leader. There is no doubt that the leader should be knowledgeable. However, that is not enough; this requires initiative, dedication, commitment,and patience. In addition, The leader should have understanding of the “culture” of the leadee!If any conflict occurred, dealing with the issue rather than individual can solve problems, but if it is personalized it may intensify the issue rather than solving!

    Other components that are important for healthy functioning of any organization may include professional collaboration, mutual respect, shared decision making, and shared goals.Participation of the Oromo people in decision making and goals of any project in OMN should be fully respected.

    OMN shouldn’t be labelled as private enterprise. It is community based organization. The owner is the Oromo people, and it is intended to serve the Oromo people in particular and other oppressed people too. It is the Oromo people who is funding it for its sustainability.

    We need to respect personal decisions of individuals such as resignation from position, expressing opinion as long as not personal attack and destructive behavior in the organization.There may be another chance to serve the people as usual. We need to restore our traditional respect to one another.

    Destructive opinions that are posted intentionally to intensify conflicts among our people and to damage the functioning of this community based Media Organization should be condemned by all Oromos! The Oromo people should be able to say “this is my property”! We should be assertive to protect our property and say no! to some who carry around destructive ideologies to fulfill their personal interest.This may include excluding/firing any one who works against the interest of the Oromo people and the intended goal of the OMN by the Oromo people.

    Security: All Oromos should be security for their own property, the OMN!, in a way that does not interfere with its functioning! Be vigilant for infiltrators!

    ulfaadhaa!

    Finally, We must thank those who worked tirelessly from early plan to foundation OMN and still working for their precious time, expertise,and energy.

    Other components that are important for healthy functioning of any organization may include professional collaboration, mutual respect, shared decision making, and shared goals. Participation of the Oromo people in decision making and goals of any project in OMN should be fully respected.
    OMN shouldn’t be labelled as private enterprise. It is community based organization.
    The owner is the Oromo people, and it is intended to serve the Oromo people in particular and other
    oppressed people too. It is the Oromo people who are funding it for its sustainability.
    We need to respect personal decisions of individuals such as resignation from position, expressing opinion
    as long as not personal attack and destructive behavior in the organization. There may be another chance to
    serve the people as usual. We need to restore our traditional respect to one another.
    Destructive opinions that are posted intentionally to intensify conflicts among our people and to damage the functioning of this community based Media Organization should be condemned by all Oromos! The Oromo people should be able to say “this is my property”! We should be assertive to protect our property and say no! to some who carry around destructive ideologies to fulfill their personal interest. This may include
    excluding/firing anyone who works against the interest of the Oromo people and the intended goal of the
    OMN by the Oromo people.
    Security: All Oromos should be security for their own property, the OMN!, in a way that does not interfere with its functioning! Be vigilant for infiltrators!

    The deafening silence of Jawahr shows who’s to blame for this crisis.

    But, this one mistake should not be taken to forget the series of emotional talks he made under the title “I am oromo first” to mobilize and unite oromos around the world for a common cause at a time when we had no hope at all and our enemies were exploiting this to the maximum. In that regard no one I knew united oromos as much as he did and was/is my hero.

    We can overcome this current problem easily if there is a fundamental understanding that OMN is free from political interference by interest groups as claimed on their website. This is why it was established and what the professor wants it to be as he promised to us. If this not the case then OMN is serving at best just one ideological camp or a third party at our expense.

    If they have the good will the Bord and Executive Director must do their job immediately and exactly as proposed above and bring back this man to save us remaining the laughing stock of this world.

    Finally, oromos should never forget that our ultimate liberator is not OMN, but OLA fighters based in oromia and should invest on them as much as we invest on our daily living. Oromo leaders must think globally (don’t mistake for globalization!) if you want your freedom. We can not explain why TPDM has at least 100 times more fighters than OLF when we boast about being 40 million strong. We failed to organize and lead ourselves while others prevailed, because we couldn’t produce leaders who can see the bigger picture. Ironically, Jawar was my best hope among diaspora oromos for that role.

    Now, what is the end goal of OMN if it can not help oromo liberation and stop the tears of oromo mothers?

    Ganamoo,

    “….resignation of a single individual who happens to be immature, inexperienced, and unwise.”

    That must be the reason he’s a professor in one of Americas best universities who mistakenly reduced himself to your level to give you an opportunity to share a floor with you. I wish you took your time finding solutions to your problems rather than try to evaluate someone you are no match for.

    If J. Mohammed gave you some bread I understand your frustration, but the prof is not someone who needs to sell his soul and integrity for a bread handout.

    It seems not fair to finance for personal benefit than to all Oromo. Even a country government is not enjoying travel with people’s money. How many times Jawar travel, for example, to Manitoba, Toronto etc? From where the funding is coming from? Is there no other person who mobilize fund raising without spending on transport etc? Is that not possible to hold conference online?…

    Is that not possible to integrate other media under one management to optimize resource allocation and uses? Is that not boring to ask people for OMN, Oromia TV, mada Walaabuu media….? Would be more talk transfer to more action? From action, these media wouldn’t ebb resources?

      That’s one of Dr. Hamza’s points. He said 90% of OMN air time is wasted! He wants to merge major broadcasters into a single channel in order to save resources. The Prof. simply wanted to lay a foundation for a strong, unbiased and INDEPENDENT institution that serves all oromos without any external influence and that can live for generations. NOT MORE! He wants to do fundamental things his successor can build on. Unlike Jawahr or many others he is a pure professional with no political agenda of his own.

      In stead of of using this golden opportunity they are losing him because of their ignorance.

      If only I had known earlier that not the official board members, but Jawar was controlling OMN behind the scenes, I would have long, long halted my donation!!!!!

      This doesn’t mean I hate Jawar or his politics, but the principle of INDEPENDENT institution is far more important. With regards to travel, it is up the board to decide how to manage donated money, but if the office manager is the wrong person and if they allow themselves to be dictated upon by an individual who is not even a board member, then I share your concerns.

      Once again, all this money could make a lasting difference if it is used solely to buy AK47s for oromo farmers and students who are being terrorized by wayane bandits.

        Abba Boora,

        You are giving too much credit to Hamza. There are also credible informtaion about the failure of his leadership in OMN. So don’t try to convince the gullible with your personal interest.

          My “personal” interest in this is to see success of OMN as an independent institution and oromo as an independent nation. If you share this with me, you also share the fact that success can not come when you have two bosses in the same house one of them calling the other a “sitting duck”. Don’t you think this is outrageous? I do.

          I am optimist, though. To my delight Hamza said OMN has not been infiltrated by habasha, as we originally thought, to his knowledge and this appears to be pure power fight between two individuals, one legally elected board chair, the other who felt an outsider but wanted to control everything from journalists, editors, executive and board and finally insulting the board chair. (listen to interview at SNR)

          I am only hearing from you there has been any problem with Hamzas leadership. Of course, if you do not do you your job right he can fire you, and that is leadership success, not a failure because that’s what we want him to do!

          To the contrary, his juniors fired journalists without his knowledge and that started the current mess!

            Abba Boora,

            Assuming that you are one of those concerned truly for the success of OMN, I find it hard how you understand the role of a board leadership. In any case, he left his leadership on his own volition. He could have worked and implemented changes if he truly believed in that. To tell you frankly, I am surprised at the silence of the OMN leadership when Hamza shows up on every media to spread what he believes is going on in OMN with out any challenge. He is not a sugar daddy as you wanted to portray him.

              Silence is perhaps their best option if it is clear that they have no solid ground to stand on to come out and try to challenge the unchallengeable facts. They could be brewing something of that sort, but no way.

              Do you think Hamza would leave if he had had the freedom to implements changes?

    I always blame our unqualified praise for the wrong doing in OMN. We.We have no clue of how to handle a promising young man on his way up. Juhar is and was our asset but we spoiled him .we still need him,he should admit his errors and work with the elite professor.No need of much commotion.Only those who work make mistake.

    If juhar has a an ambition for political office let him join one of the parties or create his own.To continue to use OMN as a political spring board is unacceptable and it damages his reputation and open his wound of working with chauvinist on his own admission,but he does have all the right and potential to seek the highest office of the land.

    No commotion,let us all be honest ,we are all clever and any effort to be super clever is tantamount to terrorism.These things should settle down within weeks or months and any prolongation does not favor oromo or individual involved in the saga.

    The support for OMN should continue to me much more than it used to be.Let us learn to work together even if we don’t agree 100% .That is the way of the world.

    Please leave Jawar. Let him try his best. For me he is doing excellent. Even if he commites errors here and there, I am not prepared to count it; even to see it. He succeeded to rally all Oromos under one umbrella during our deepest division. Because of that we have one voice now all over the place. We are one Oromo; one identity and one aspiration. Walaboomu.
    Dr.Abdulrazaq should have played the role Sibhat Nega played in grooming Melese to celebrity. He still could do that; I believe.

    Jawar has done an impeccable job uniting the the Oromo community that has gone into disarray closer to standing as individuals since the OLF left finfine in 1992. This guy is the only Oromo anyone can name for standing up to challenge the abashas in Oromo first campaign that brought some sense in Oromo unity.

    He is the Only promising leader we have as Oromos but we seem to shamelessly do everything we can to be obstacles to his blessed plans for our people instead of following his superb lead. when can we learn to listen to our intelligent men and women for our own sake?

    OROMO!!!! some of us are: student,businessman,uneducated, casual-worker, farmer and some are too old to think properly about how to solve Oromo issues.
    My point is, all Oromo can’t be political annalist. let our leaders analyse and bring to us then, we follow them without any question.If not, we will remain under the habesha pressure forever.
