  1. As the saying goes, What goes around comes around.

    PROFESSOR MESFIN WOLDEMARIAM’S “AMARA DOES NOT EXIST” SPEECH got support from Professor Anmaw Anteneh.

    In the past decades or so even in Addis Ababa “THE MELTING POT” if Professor Anmaw walked around the campus he was teaching he would have been able to detect organized Amara groups of students that only associate with Amaras only. Amara Human beings that speak Amara are still patiently waiting for justice so they can move on with their lives.


    Beginning from Shabiya , Derg , ISI , EPRDF Including Genet Zewde all of them got or are getting what they deserve for what they have done to Amara. One way or the other justice will be served or we will patiently die trying.

    • Ethiopians are humble law abiding people. Ethiopians should rally behind the accused since guilt is not proven in a court yet. The labeled crazy criminals might be falsely accused for a crime another person committed. All are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

  3. Isayas Afewerk works for the Gondare PM Abiy-ot , The two “leaders ” are responsible for working to bring back the Gondares Amaras monarchy.
    They both are trying to bring back the Amara Monarchy with Gondar being the capital city.

  4. Right now for the last year or so Gurage opens business in Tigrai at a rapid pace because Gurage knows hardwork gets appreciated by Tigraians, we Tigraians encourage more Gurages to come open businesses in Tigrai because Tigrai is the safest place in Ethiopia where economy is growing, all Gurage business people can grow here.

    Tigrai is the place where laws are fully respected. Unlike in most other parts of Ethiopia, in Tigrai Gurage people leave their store doors open and go down the street with no worry of finding things gone missing from their stores when they come back. The Tigrai Chamber Of Commerece helps navigate the bureaucracy, with no unnecessary obstacles as most parts of Ethiopia’s bureaucracies do. In other parts of Ethiopia acquiring business permit and other bureaucracies are proven to be a headache but in Tigrai everything goes smooth. My Gurage brother” Atfera begondares Amara neftegnas ” be free, come to Tigrai the best place in Ethiopia for those who work.
