TPLF and the beginning of the end in Tigray

October 5, 2019

Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) has committed a number of mistakes in relation to the people of Tigray the least of which is not the effort to create a pro-TPLF political world view among every single ethnic Tigrean.

Needless to say, political parties work towards that end and TPLF is not an exception. What is not right about TPLF is that it has consistently employed a combination of brute force and political intrigue to make TPLF appear as if it is the only way that an ethnic Tigray should pursue. For example, it has projected the view that Tigray would be in danger if TPLF loses power.

Tigray has been an integral part of Ethiopia for many centuries with an indelible record of positive contributions in the history of Ethiopia.

Now many ethnic Tigreans seem to be more and more realizing that fact. Apart from the fact that the number of opposition parties has reached six, albeit full-fledged repression in the region, the emergence of new breeds of articulated politicians in Tigray seems to suggest the onset of the beginning of the end of TPLF in Tigray region.

Nebiyu Sihul Michael seems to be one of such breeds. An author and a lecturer at Mekelle University, he seems to reflect the view that Tigray could not be and should not be reduced to TPLF. He also emphasized the importance of making distinctions between the two entities. At the same time, he seems to understand that Tigray has a glorious past for hundreds of years before TPLF. Disenchantment among ethnic Tigreans in Tigray and interest in having an evaluative engagement with TPLF to discern its crimes is also something that he highlighted.

Based on an interview with Andafta media, he was arrested for about a month and beaten.

If you haven’t watched it already, his interview is must watch. Please consider sharing it with your networks.

  1. crass article


    this is gibberish article written by Teshome Debalke in the website. He is trying to persuade his readers by prolonging his article with irrelevant paragraph that doesn’t add up at all.

    It is collection of several trash ideas that doesn’t add up. Amhara is a warmonger and spy agent for western world who constantly wage war on africa and Asia .” the military makes up 55 percent of discretionary spending for USA. ” eqwal to kiwunat seldi.

    $3.076 billion on DHS Custody Operations, or $8.43 million per day on immigrant detention . This project is enrich us elites at the expense of bullying migrants and deceiving tax payers.

    It is for these people amhara is spying for .
    Amhara ladies and men falsely claim as if they couldn’t live in ethiopia due to thier sexual orientation in the TPLF regime .
    The funny thing is amhara elites defame tigray monks and bishops homosexuals, infected with HIV etc

    This is because of the groundless hate they develop against TIgray and Tigreans. It is not we tigreans bombed and tortured amhara it they the saddist amhara leaders killed our grand parents and churchmen with bomb . We are respectful and hardworking people.

  2. amhara

    you seem to be created to invent lies and hate speech. donot you think that you could come up with ideas that can change your hungerstricken amhara living in gonder and gojam constantly asking for help ???

    koshahsha aneshoch kitregna worada telkasha leba yareb telalaki

    Including your priests and bishops , you are worshipping demons and devil himslef; Many of your debteras and bishops recite greeting of devil and demons to stay in power and destroy others.

    There is no longer memories of God in your blank church.

    when you guys target someone to defame him it is a complete indication and sign that you are traumatized and terrorized by his grace , peaceful and productivitve activities.
