The UK has ended its financial support for a controversial development project alleged to have helped the Ethiopian government fund a brutal resettlement programme. Hundreds of people have been forced from their land as a result of the scheme, while there have also been reports of torture, rape and beatings.
Until last month, Britain’s Department for International Development (DfID) was the primary funder of the promotion of basic services (PBS) programme, a $4.9bn (£3.2bn) project run by the World Bank and designed to boost education, health and water services in Ethiopia.

TPLF to PDO's: " Don't dare forget your roots’’

February 25, 2015 | From Jawar Mohammed

For the last 24 years, OPDO has been telling the public that they were founded in 1991 in Oromia, at locality known as Harbu Maskelle, Darraa district of North Shawa province (Zone). In an interesting twist and development, last week, they came out with new storyline saying they were in fact founded not in Oromia but Tigray regional state at a place locally known as Adet, 40km away from nearest town of Axum. The leaders of the organizations were bused to Tigray and seen laying down memorial stone, thanking the local residents and promising to build college for them.

Ethiopia: Nalia's Story - Adolescents Who Sell Sex in Ethiopia

February 23, 2015 | By Nina Benedicte Kouassi | Taken from

When Nalia* left her village for Addis Ababa, she expected to find a job and send money home to her family. She was looking for work as a maid, but says: "As I did not know anyone in the city, I lived in the streets. And I had to do this [sex work] to earn some money while finding a job. At 16, she is still a sex worker and her story is far from unusual.
Sex work was last mapped in Addis Ababa in 2002 where it was estimated that there were 8,134 establishment-based sex workers and 250 street-based sex workers. Sex work in Ethiopia is vast, diverse and conducted openly. Sex workers operate in virtually all hotels, bars and restaurants and there are street workers on most main roads of towns after sunset. Although the law does not prohibit sex work itself, the associated activities of brothel keeping, trafficking and public soliciting are illegal. Selling sex under the age of eighteen is a criminal offence in Ethiopia.

World Bank: Address Ethiopia Findings: Response to Inquiry Dismissive of Abuses

February 23, 2015 | Human Rights Watch

(Washington, DC) – The World Bank should fully address serious human rights issues raised by the bank’s internal investigation into a project in Ethiopia, Human Rights Watch said in a letter to the bank’s vice president for Africa. The bank’s response to the investigation findings attempts to distance the bank from the many problems confirmed by the investigation and should be revised. The World Bank board of directors is to consider the investigation report and management’s response, which includes an Action Plan, on February 26, 2015.

Ethiopia's imprisoned bloggers have not been forgotten

February 21, 2015 | Blog by India Rakusen | BBC Trending

In April 2014 BBC Trending covered the arrest of six bloggers and three journalists in Ethiopia. The bloggers are part of a group known as Zone 9, and are well known for campaigning around censorship and human rights issues in Ethiopia. Ten months on from their arrest, the hashtag #FreeZone9Bloggers continues to be used in the country as the trials continue.

That's not typical - campaigning hashtags often tail off over time. This one is being kept alive by activists both inside and out of Ethiopia who are challenging the government's decision. The total number of tweets is still only in the tens of thousands, but that is enough to be noticed on the global map (Twitter does not produce an official trending topics list for Ethiopia).

Oromo definitely do not want the toxic Addis Ababa to expand anymore, rather must struggle to turn Addis Ababa into Finfinne

February 20, 2015 | Editorial

There is a difference between “Addis Ababa” and “Finfinne.” The Oromo do not own Addis Ababa, and they must not own Addis Ababa, but they must struggle to turn Addis Ababa into Finfinne.
Oftentimes, people use “Addis Ababa” and “Finfinne” interchangeably. This is wrong on many accounts. “Addis Ababa is not Finfinne” – and “Finfinne is not Addis Ababa.”
Addis Ababa, by design, has been made to hate Oromo … from its inception, it’s Oromo-phobic. The struggle of the Oromo is to bury this Oromo-phobic Addis Ababa, and on its grave, build Finfinne – a city that is accommodating to all — a city that is based on the Oromo culture of tolerance and acceptance.

The quest to resuscitate empire Ethiopia and it’s consequence

February 17, 2015 | By Rundassa Asheetee

The year 2015 may be the most complicated year for empire Ethiopia.  The Amharas are organized, the Oromians, the Sidamas and the Ogadenians are ever defiant, the TPLF leaders already sound like Mangistu of 1991 and Eritrea has won the championship of the political game of the horn of Africa. Mean time, tens of thousands of Oromians are in prison while large number of people are leaving the dying empire every day and thousands die on their way to the Arab and European countries.

Abay Tsehaye: The ugly face of Tigrean Chauvinism

February 16, 2015 | Gulele Post

Few months ago, in an interview with journalist Befekadu Moroda of Oromia Media Network (OMN), I asserted that TPLF and the Tigrean ruling class have transformed into Neftegna. Abay Tsehaye’s recent words and behavior testament to that. Remember the Neftegna system that gave monopoly over the means of violence and the sources of wealth produced chauvinistic agents who exploited and disrespected oppressed groups in Ethiopia. The system also engineered social behaviors that justified the actions of those agents and popularized myths of the dominant groups socio-cultural superiority. Overtime, the ruling class and its base began rationalizing and institutionalizing prejudice and extreme form of violent responses towards those who dissented.

Ethiopia: stealing the Omo Valley, destroying its ancient Peoples

February 16, 2015 | Megan Perry* / Sustainable Food Trust
A land grab twice the size of France is under way in Ethiopia, as the government pursues the wholesale seizure if indigenous lands to turn them over to dams and plantations for sugar, palm oil, cotton and biofuels run by foreign corporations, destroying ancient cultures and turning Lake Turkana, the world's largest desert lake, into a new Aral Sea.

What is happening in the lower Omo Valley, and elsewhere, shows a complete disregard for human rights and a total failure to understand the value these tribes offer Ethiopia in terms of their cultural heritage and their contribution to food security.

BREAKING NEWS: Report on failure of OPDO’s mission in Kenya as they felt everywhere as usual

February 16, 2015 | Oromo Community Public Relation Officer of Nairobi, Kenya

The Oromo community would like to inform all its members in Kenya and the entire Oromo people, that the intended plan of Woyane to drive Oromo refugees into submission has been boycotted. The intention of forced attendance to a malicious meeting on Feb 14-2015 at the Ethiopian Embassy of Kenya, which contained a hidden agenda, has been invalidated. The plan was proposed by higher officials of Oromia Regional State. It became unsuccessful because of a strong resistance from the Oromo community at large. This outcome was due to everyone’s effort and dedication, as well as obeyed and convinced by the Oromo community’s declaration to refrain from attending this meeting.

Abay Tsehaye’s Bravado Exposes the TPLF Master Plan

February 15, 2015 | Gulele Post

Abay Tsehaye’s threat, its tone and spirit, is very revealing of TPLF’s contempt and disrespect for Oromos, even those who are serving them as puppets. What is the story behind such outburst? After completion of the the Master Plan without any involvement from the Oromia side, Abay Tsehaye gathered senior OPDO leaders and ordered them to implement the plan. They expressed concern that they were not involved in the process of drafting the plan and that it will be hard to convince the rank and file. They were told they will not take NO for answer. The OPDO leaders could not even agree on the matter and when they took the issue to the mid-level leadership, they were met with fierce resistance and hostility. While the Oromia state leaders were planning to bring the issue to the Caffee ( parliament) for deliberation, Abay/TPLF could not wait so they bypassed them, gathered administrators of cities surrounding Finfinne and told them to begin implementation. At this meeting, the city administrators raised several procedural and policy objections and said they cannot take this plan without further study and deliberation at Caffee ( Oromia parliament level.) The administrators said they cannot convince the public about a plan even they themselves neither understand nor accept. In their typical manner Abay Tsehaye and TPLF leaders rejected the request for further discussion at the leadership level and gave them strict orders to begin the implementation phase. This conflict reached the public leading to the mass protest and massacre of April/May 2014.

They used different methods to crack down innocent refugee’s, especially whom they still expected that the mastermind of unrest going on in that state. This has been found and confirmed from the invitation letter proposed by Oromo Regional State high officials. 

MEDREK has fielded the largest number of opposition candidates out of which the Oromo Federalist Congress fielded about 60% of them

February 14, 2015

"MEDREK has fielded the largest number of opposition candidates out of which the Oromo Federalist Congress fielded about 60% of them. OFC has fielded 168 for the Parliamentary seats and about 475 for the Oromia Council (total of 643). This is the largest number of candidates ever, i.e. greater than the candidates of Oromo People's Congress and Oromo Federalist Democratic Movement combined in 2005 or 2010. Now we are warming up for the campaign to crisscross Oromia to make sure the EPRDF come out of the elections minimally with a tarnished image.

It is going to be five whole years since Wayyaanee won all parliamentary seats but for one. The opposition condemned it as not free and fair for that moment. But it could change nothing. It was usurpation of power under the façade of election and no election was conducted. That TPLF strategy was endorsed for reasons by great powers can be guessed from the manner in which they reacted to the outcome.

Suffocating Dissent: Gagging the Media in Ethiopia

February 13, 2015 | By Graham Peebles*, Truthout | Op-Ed

Nobody trusts politicians, but some governments are more despicable than others. The brutal gang ruling Ethiopia is especially nasty. They claim to govern in a democratic, pluralistic manner; they say they observe human rights and the rule of law, that the judiciary is independent, the media open and free, and public assembly permitted as laid out in the constitution. But the ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) systematically violates fundamental human rights, silences all dissenting voices and rules the country in a suppressive, violent fashion that is causing untold suffering to millions of people throughout the country.

Creation of Oromo National Dialog for Unity

February 10, 2015 | By Kassim Sheimo

The last 24 years of Oromo struggle against TPLF regime has been a failure by many aspect due to lack of unity, strong viable leadership, lack of clear vision, proliferation of influence of locality, religion, and regionalism inside Oromo political organizations. The end product of these processes is a devastating failure of Oromo political and social fabric inside and outside of the country. As majority of us recall from 1991 to present day, Oromo people have not yet lost hope on its once was a vibrant organization with tenth of thousands of regular fighters as well as millions of volunteers and all most 90% support from Oromo public. The difference created before the fall of Dergu regime and following the TPLF dominated transitional government has resulted into devastating consequences for our cause. There are so many conspiracy theories that are still hidden from Oromo public as to why, when, who, and in what circumstances the OLF is divided into different factions. Why the Organization once enjoyed massive human and material resources behind it suffered such humiliating failure is a mystery.

The unsuccessful journey of the Tigre government messengers led by abbaa Duulaa Gammada

February 05, 2015 | By Rundassa Asheetee Hundee

zelalem_jemanehOn 12/23/14, a man named Zelalem Jemaneh of TPLF/OPDO was picked up from the Dulles Airport by man named Nagasa, an OPDO operative who also runs the Mulu Wangel Church in Washington DC. Soon another man named Qanani joined them. Zelalem Jemaneh is best known for evicting tens of thousands of Oromians from around Finfinnee and for the death of hundreds of Oromia university students and farmers of Oromia.
After welcoming Zelalem Jemaneh to Washington DC, the Mulu Wengel church established to promote the Ethiopian unity contacted Aklilu Brihanu, the head of California based Mulu Wangel church and discussed how to create the OPDO cell in America. This church also runs several branches in America under the name of Burqaa Jireenya.

Leenco Lata’s Half a Century Old Deception

February 03, 2015 | By Kassim Sheimo*

News broke out  recently thatObbo/Mr. Leenco Lata, and his ODF [Oromo Democratic Front] members and associates are heading to Finfinne for another power-sharing dilemma with the TPLF government. It looks like the long and exhausting mediation effort by Obbo Abba Biyya Jobir and Prof. Ephraim Isaac resulted in some sort of road map transition with the regime in the Ethiopian Empire. Mr. Leenco’s political history has not been an easy one. It is a complicated one that has created misery for millions of Oromo people, and I am afraid he is still repeating the same without hesitation. In the history of the Oromo struggle, he is a very controversial figure.
