Last Year, Lemma Megersa and his team was considered as change leaders and they have contributed a respectable role in terms of changing ruthless TPLF rule from within the ruling coalition. However, recently Lemma and his team came be to be a subject of skepticism following a leaked video of Lemma in which he allegedly talked about settling ethnic oromo Ethiopians in Addis Ababa. In the video below, Lemma dismissed that he did not say that he will settle ethnic Oromos in Addis Ababa claiming that his speech was taken out of context.
He also talked about his parties relationship with Amhara Democratic Party (ADP) leadership. He claims that the relationship is even stronger. He tried to give the impression that leaders of the two parties work in consultation so much so that he can talk about, as he puts it, he can talk about Gonder and Markos and ADP leaders can ask question about Jimma.
Lemme is yet to explain how and why his party, Oromo Democratic Party) issued a statement recently claiming ethnic oromo ownership of Addis Ababa.
