Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) is undertaking a public conference in Mekelle.

Chairman of the Organization and Tigray region’s acting president, Debretsion Gebremichael, and other senior TPLF officials are in attendance.

Representatives from Irob and Kunama communities are  also in attendance, according to state-affiliated Fana Broadcasting Corporate (FBC) report on Saturday. 

The two days long conference will be discussing “current affairs of the region.” 

Tigray Communication Affairs Bureau shared a two and a half hours long video content on its social media page. It  features what looks like a propaganda stint hailing the political ideology of TPLF and shredding medemer – an ideology that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said to coined. 

The party declined to join Prosperity Party (PP) – a new party formed by three members of former Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) and five other ally parties.

In an apparent response to the formation Prosperity Party, TPLF has mobilized political groups which it called “Federalist group” on grounds that the new Prosperity Party is a threat to the constitution and the Federal system.

    Tigrai state government has illegally defied the Tigrai people and the federal government in so many occasions that brought lawlessness reign of Getachew Asdefa on themselves , now there is no way to guarantee the safety of any person that intends to hangout near the “officials” , especially lately even the officials themselves Getachew Reda , Debretsion and many more got physically tortured by the Getachew Assefa’s crew because these Tigray officials were finally considering to obey the Defense Minister’s request to return military weapons that were put by Ethio Eritrea border starting with the helicopters. Getachew Assefa made it clear he will not let the “officials” consider of taking these weapons away from the border . With these weapons remaining under Getachew Assefa reach it proved the diplomatic reconciliation reform is not effective in Tigrai making the terror threat for unprotected no bodyguarded individuals visiting the officials at HIGH ALERT, that’s why Amara state officials took a whole unit with them on their recent visits to Tigrai State. Chinese officials didn’t bring their whole unit to Ethiopia so they were not let go to Mekele . From now on excluding few strategical areas all Tigrai areas are considered as enemy killers of the late PM Meles Zenawi controlled occupied zones .making the options left to choose from now is to remain occupied or not to remain occupied. Etitrea stayed occupied for fifty + years by Italy as Tigrai fits the description of being occupied starting now with all reconcilation reform completely being nulified by Getachew Assefa crews who are responsible for the untimely death of M Z.

      Yes We can !!

      Why can’t give your impartial and peaceful comments here like Mr Ittu Aba Farda.

      I must acknowledge the fact that there are ethnic based organizations running for political position. It is an eye-opening comment, but you must stay away from a remark inciting violence.

      Dr Jewar has a right like anybody else to run for office. I cannot put the blame on him beacuse I donot trust any media , be it international or local. No more brainwashing and defaming here and there , time and again!

      Thank you

    They have the rights to hold such public meetings just like everyone else in the country. In fact such pow wow can work its magic in highlighting the Shaykh-al-Bahr’s who have been riding on the backs of those noble people for more than 40 years now. Something will definitely begin to crack!!!
