Tigray regional state president, Debretsion Gebremichael, his resignation, reported today government affiliated local news source, Walta. He is also chairman of Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

The source said that it is unclear if his resignation is accepted or not.

As well, the breaking news coverage from Walta did not report on why Debretsion decided to tender his resignation.

What is known so far is that TPLF central committee had a meeting this week.

There are rumors of split within the decision-making body in the party over the issue of handing over the former spy chief, Getachew Assefa, to the Federal government.

The office of the Attorney General disclosed this week in the parliament that an arrest warrant has been issued on Getachew and he has no immunity for he is not a member of the Federal or regional parliament.

According to The Ethiopian Reporter which cited Getachew Reda (one of the nine TPLF executives), Getachew Assefa, who is a member of TPLF’s central committee and executive committee, did not attend the central committee meeting this week.

Getachew Reda told The Reporter that there was no agenda item regarding the former spy chief during TPLF’s central Committee meeting.

    Leaders of Liberation Movements were never good at being CIVIL Head of States. They are, by Nature and by their OCCUPATION as “Liberators”, are absolute ruthless, soulless DICTATORS..To accomplish their TASK as Liberators, they are totally immune [and violently opposed) to the idea of DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLE. They MUST accomplish their task by ANY MEANS necessary. In that process, the loss of Life — on their side as well as on the enemy’s side — has no meaning to Dictators.
    But here is a glaring natural CONTRADICTION: DICTATORS are the MOST COWARD creatures, on the surface of the earth, when it comes to THEIR OWN LIFE!!! They are – by HUMAN STANDARD — the most despicable creatures on the surface of the EARTH. THE END

    It is time TPLF join the revolution for peaceful and democratic Ethiopia, otherwise will plunge Ethiopia into a civil war that will be destructive and costly to all Ethiopians.

    TPLF’s defiant stand and its support of subversive forces in Wolega and other places are dangerous and foolish.

    TPLF needs to hand over anyone charged and support Abiy who is for all Ethiopians.

    “Tigray regional state president, Debretsion Gebremichael, his resignation, reported today government affiliated local news source, Walta. He is also chairman of Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF)”.

    Why? Since He is an elect president of the party and the region.

    As to my understanding the TPLF members should work on the young and active generation to create skilled and knowledgeable citizens instead of being stick to seniors or olds. Tigrarians should unite to give solutions systematically for all economic, social and political questions of the region. No need of resignation.

    Recalling history from time to time is a healthy exercise for the mind. And so, it is worth remembering the famous/infamous ግርማዊ ቀዳማዊ ኃይለ ሥላሴ፣ ንጉሠ ነገሥት፣ ዘእምነ ገደ ይሁዳ must also, IN FAIRNESS, be included in the List of RESPECTABLE and REPUTABLE Marauders, emaciating the RICHNESS of Ethiopia to the last layer of its bones. It is HISTORY that can not be denied. As the saying goes: ‘LIVE & DEAL WITH IT’.

    Thank You, borkena for the PRIVILEGE of having a free space to express our humble OPINIONS — a far cry from past DICTATORS’ AUTHORITATIVE ABSOLUTE MASTER HOOD. May the NEW mode of Freedom of Expression be a catalyst to future DREAM of “Government of the People, for the People and by the People”. BLESS YOUR SOUL ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

    At this time when we see the Ethiopian government standing just like the stool had three legs,Dr Abiy Ahmed,Lemma Meghersa and Gedu Andarkachew.The so called Team Lemma also had three major members from different regions: Lemma Meghersa, the chair of the Oromo Democratic Party (ODP) and the president of the Oromo state; the Ethiopian prime minister; and Gedu Andarkachew, the ex-president of the Amhara state.
    The other one from “Tigray regional state vice president,Debretsion Gebremichael is acting like Ethiopian prime minister Abiy Ahemed.
    Debretsion the TPLF Gang is intentionally doing many childish mistakes to distract Dr Abiy Ahmed from his day to day Ethiopian’s job.
    So he must go and I believe he is not good enough as a responsible person; we saw him that when he put the crown on his head in Axum church ignoring the Ethiopian Orthodox Church;which should’t be.It is enough this example to show that how he is illegal irresponsible person.
