  1. Fiseha little donkey
    is it your second nature to fart like a mare or a horse ? Why donot justify yourself and give reasons for your hate ? Insulting someone shows that he or she topped you and her or his sucess really bothers you. I mean you are in danger because of TPLF and Tigray peopl’s success.
    A forest is likely to produce bandits, robbers, killers and demons like Mahibrekidusan, amhara priests and debteras who are known to poison and kill thier victims brutally.
    Church is full of crime of all sort. ask yourself and donot blame others
