Oromo man who lost pregnant wife at #Irreecha2016 returns to Bishoftu (Via BBC)

Posted: Fulbaana/September 29, 2017 · Finfinne Tribune | Gadaa.com | Comments

The following story of a young Oromo man named Abdissa Borena was reported on BBC’s Afaan Oromoo and Amharic services. Abdissa’s pregnant wife Sifan Legesse was among those who lost their lives during #Irreecha2016. Earlier that year, Sifan’s brother Gemechis was also killed during a peaceful protest in the region of Oromia in Ethiopia. As he returns to Bishoftu days ahead of this year’s Irreecha ceremony, Abdissa says it’s in the memory of Sifan that he’ll continue to come to Bishoftu’s Irreecha.

“እዚህ ነው ዓይኔን ያጣሁት፤ ወደ ስፍራው ስመጣ የእሷን ዓይን የማይ ይመስለኛል”

በርካቶች የዘንድሮውን የኢሬቻ በዓል በተሰበረ ስሜት ነው የሚያከበሩት።

ከነዚህም መካከል አብዲሳ ቦረና ይገኝበታል።

መስከረም 22/2009 ዓ.ም አብዲሳ ከነፍሰ-ጡሯ የትዳር አጋሩ ሲፈን ጋር ለመጀመሪያ ጊዜ የኢሬቻን በዓል ለማክበር ወደ ቢሾፍቱ አቀና።

አብዲሳ “ትዳር ከመሰረትን በኋላ ለመጀመሪያ ጊዜ የምንናከብረው የኢሬቻ በዓል ስለሆነ እጅግ ደስተኛ ነበርን። ሁለታችንም በባህል ልብስ አጊጠን የበዓሉ ተካፍይ ለመሆን ወደ ሥፍራው ሄድን” ይላል።

አብዲሳ በዓሉ በሚከበርበት ቦታ ላይ ከቢቢሲ ጋር ባደረገው ቆይታ ቀኑን እንዲህ ሲል ያስታውሳል “በበዓሉ ሥፍራ ከሲፈን እና ከሌሎች ጓደኞቼ ጋር ሆነን ጥቂት ከቆየን በኋላ፤ ቀኑ ፀሃያማ ስለነበር ሲፈንም ነፍሰ ጡር ስለሆነች ለእሷ ደህንነት ስንል ዛፍ ጥላ ስር ለመሆን ቦታ ቀየርን።
ጥቂት እንደቆየን እኔና ወንድሜ ወደ ሃይቁ ተጠግተን ፎቶግራፍ ማንሳት ስለፈለግን፤ ሲፈን ከጓደኞቼ ጋር ወደ ከተማ ተመልሳ እዛው እንድንገናኝ ተስማምተን ተለያየን።”

Qeerroo vs. Foollee - The Need for 'Tokkummaa' through 'Ilaa fi Ilaamee'

This is strictly our observation (at the individual level - our opinion/Editorial). #GadaaFT

In the post #Irreecha2017 season, two groups of Oromo youth are emerging: the red-green-red (revolutionary) Qeerroo, and the black-red-white (evolutionary) Foollee. All used to be loosely referred to as 'Qeerroo;' it looks like this loose term doesn't define everyone anymore.

Earlier this week, we shared the following graphic calling on Tokkummaa between these two Oromo youth groups (see below in the comment-section). And, we also shared a video of the Gadaa culture of "Ilaa fi Ilaamee" in order to indicate the way to Tokkummaa (i.e. discussion for consensus/Tokkummaa). The video can be watched below in the comment-section.

Insults, bullying and other negative tendencies shouldn't be hurled at each other; it produces nothing, but resentments. We have the UNESCO-recognized Gadaa system to be used here: "Ilaa fi Ilaamee" (consensus-building through matured discussion).

There is no right or wrong way to the desired Bilisummaa, but there are different ways. Neither Qeerroo's nor Foollee's approach is right or wrong, but they're clearly different; we're starting to notice through posts on social media.

The fast-change-seekers (the revolutionary) Qeerroo are restless (by nature or choice); the slow-change-seekers (the evolutionary) Foollee are deliberate (by nature or choice). Each person should choose his or her liking and align in the group that suits his or her decisions, then discuss carefully and respectfully to understand each other (not tear each other up to cause distrust and resentments).

Points of conjunction (collaboration) are both groups' stance against the Woyane-inflicted human rights abuses in Oromia, and their love for Oromummaa and Oromia.
