Saboteurs and expansionists are ganging up against Oromoo national Kaayyoo. To hold hands and stand one’s ground for the Oromo is now! Party politics is strange for EPRDF. It is familiar only with the model of the king of kings. That is what it has been orienting the peoples of the empire distorting with Revolutionary Democracy. Like absolute monarchs of yesteryear, its rule is totalitarian and so muffling for political environment. For politicians that lost hope of bringing change, any seeming positive move will give them a ray of hope. But that was not acceptable to Oromo youth with Gadaa democratic background. They put up determined protest that shook EPRDF from the base. TPLF’s Revolutionary Democracy is the source of all evils, all massacres and all plunders. So, it has to go with its sponsor was the slogan of Oromo youth. EPRDF has no more legal and moral justification to continue its rule. It is left only with TPLF guns and security, which it used brutally against innocent unarmed people without restriction. In particular, it is determined to reduce Oromo population following its great leader Mallas’s thought. Mowing them down for four years, TPLF/EPRDF cannot stop the determined youth. Therefore, it planed another tactic side by side. Young EPRDF members (Team Lammaa/TL) from the OPDO were sent to cajole the Oromo youth – camouflaging as anti-establishment. They spoke their language and expressed their feelings with the intention of redirecting Oromo energy to save the EPRDF from wreckage. Dr. Abiy becoming EPRDF chairman is a continuation of that plan. However, appointing Abiy as the chairman is not enough; EPRDF has to change its attitude of totalitarianism to make the good will if any, Abiy got through “Team Lammaa” effective. But there is no indication that TPLF wanted TL’s mission for bringing fundamental change. Killings and imprisonment were going on everywhere even when their Conference that selected Abiy was going on. Can TPLF stop that? Appointing Abiy could be of value only if TPLF stops unilateral actions, retire all its General staff, arrange transfer of control of army and security to the state. EPRDF has also to immediately call for fresh free and fair state and federal election supervised by UN. General amnesty has to be declared so that no one is left out because of one’s political stand. Peoples of the empire want peace and stability with equality and respect. Can Abiy become instrumental in achieving that? Yes – if TPLF/EPRDF wills; no – if it does not will. Abiy would not have been selected if TPLF was against him. So far all EPRDF members think in the same selfish way and all do not feel agony of the peoples. For instance, no one of the delegates has come out during the Moyaalee massacre and expressed condolence to the Oromo people and mourned families of victims. The promise made by TL that they will die before them were only empty words to calm the Oromo people. But yet many want to take OPDO members being different from those of TPLF. TPLF is the only member of EPRDF that has the economic and military power. Nothing can be done without its will. They all have obligate symbiotic relations. Therefore, it is difficult to separate one from the other and make it useful. EPRDF as a whole has to bow out form the political scene to peacefully resolve conflict in the empire. EPRDF reforms and elections should be an occasion to celebrate only by its members, not the general public of the empire. Now the Ethiopian empire peoples are not crowning an emperor, but a party has appointed its leader. It is obvious that different groups support the coming of Abiy for different reasons. The major among them are those that are hoping he can derail the Oromo drive for liberation and opportunists that have started jubilating with hope for immediate return. The foregoing description is based on law and logic. In reality, the problem could be more complicated by unforeseen factors. Suffice to say, it does not satisfy the fundamental Oromo desire to be free. Qabsoon itt fufa!
