Then the question is. Why some people from this region are wrapping themselves with the Ethiopian flag and even worse celebrate the TPLF, s descent to power?

A Quick look at our troubled history shows that, nothing has changed. People in Ogaden Region suffer the same fate in the hands of Meles as they did under Haile and Mengistu.

Although the scales of the atrocities differ, the similarities are striking. Innocent people are killed, hanged, jailed, and raped each day. These are well recorded facts by the local population and International community alike. Not a week goes by that we don’t hear about these criminal acts against our people.

There was always an Organization that fought for the rights of the people whatever the name is, Nasrulah, Jeeshka, WSLF, In fact ONLF is an off-shoot of those past Liberation forces. The name only represented the “Political Theatre” at the time but the objective has never changed.

What has really changed is the new tactic deployed by the TPLF. For the 1st time in our history, there is confusion about the fact that our people don’t consider themselves as Ethiopians for the simple fact that they were never treated as fellow countrymen by whoever is in charge. There was never doubt that region was under colonial rule and the march to freedom should go on …. That is until recently.
Then the question is. Why some people from this region are wrapping themselves with the Ethiopian flag and even worse celebrate the TPLF, s descent to power? Aren’t these the same barbaric regime that throws innocent dead people on the streets and dares anyone to bury or claim it?
I think these acts fail the test of common sense and require a serious analysis by anyone who is offended by it.

Once challenged, they quick to point out that there is a lot of development going on throughout the region…better Schools, Roads, Etc. The question is…since when providing these services (given that they even exist) became a substitute for basic human rights…free from fear, death, rape, arbitrary arrest and detention?
Those who are gullible enough to the point where they’re distracted from the misery of their people by a side show… Surely live in a FOOLS PARADISE!

    Well done A/aziz. As you said, the two names are INCOMPATIBLE and that is why time and again our people had vehemently refused to become “Rimoodh” which is what the newly coined Somali-Ethiopian terminology by the Woyanne stands for.
