Ethiopian National Defense Force  on Friday announced that a news alert published by Wazema Radio on Wednesday regarding the transfer of ENDF bank account from Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) to Oromia Cooperative Bank is false. 

The news alert from Wazema this week said  that it got information regarding  the transfer of the Defense force’s construction agency bank account from CBE  to Oromia Cooperative Bank.

“The report is completely wrong…the report violates the law, and it is something that creates suspicion between the public and the Defense Force,” General Mohammed Tessema said in a report that the defense force published on Friday on its social media page. 

The defense force linked it to what it called reports that tarnish the image of the defense force. Similar reports have been disseminated in the past. Some were ignored, and others were advised to correct their reports, said head of indoctrination, Gen. Mohammed.  

He added, “It is painful that the Defense Force to experience character assassination while it is paying in life in the law enforcement campaign.” 

Furthermore, he said that the ENDF will hold accountable, in accordance with the “law of our country”, the media that disseminated false information.  

Wazema radio is yet to respond to the remarks from the Defense Force. 



  1. We Ethiopians got two personalities. One is the humble personality which we show towards our elders and the second personality is the bully personality we show towards the youngers. Most are trained to accept since childhood that bulying whoever they consider is younger age than them is their right , as they also consider being bullied by whoever is older than them is their responsibility. This bullyism trend created so much secret attacks and sabotages which led to the civil war and negativity perpetrated by those who try to escape the bullies attack , they can not openly oppose the bullies because Ethiopia’s societal hierarchy encourages the older even if it is one year older to bully the younger. Be it in a family setting , in a school , neighborhoods or any other place the younger is constantly having to come up with new sneaky attack methods to save itself from the older bully’s attacks. In most cases the younger knows attacking first is the best form of defence. That is why it is almost impossible to find out who is attacking who and serve justice because in most cases the attacks are coming from the least expected directions.

    This bullyism is a little different when it comes to how the women/mothers in Ethiopia practice it . Older Women bully younger women and the older woman also got the authority to bully the children the younger woman has. The younger woman treats the children of the older woman with such especial care and respect because they are the children of a woman who is older than her. This usually results in unconditional right for the older woman’s first born son child to become a leader “የጎበዝ አለቃ” over all men younger than him in his surroundings. Even though he is not fit for the position he just automatically gets it and bullies everyone , giving unreasonable orders. This spoiled leader is usually the person who abuses his power “ውሀ ቅዳ ውሀ መልስ” and all other type of ridiculous demeaning oppression which will eventually back fire from the very people who he bragged about to be their leader. With investigators usually failing to find out that things are back firing at the so called leader with no court really knowing how to serve justice in such conditions that is why የተገፋው ከምንም ጊዜ በላይ አምርርዋል right now Ethiopians should consciously stop bullying before it destroys each and every last of the people in Ethiopia. Be it your close family member , close friend , someone you fully thrust it does not matter honors bullying because you don’t know how seriously the one at the receiving end is firing back. Parents need to stop others from bullying their children too. We are seeing the consequences in our own eyes right now violence becoming a norm because of the giving orders addiction and he bullyism addiction Ethiopians got.
