TPLF spokesman rants victory as the U.S. targets Ethiopia with restrictions , sanctions


Getachew Reda, Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) spokesperson, says the U.S. stand on Ethiopia is commendable.

He vowed to revenge what he calls “Amhara elites” – a phrase many say is a code word to mean Amhara.

Since the TPLF forces lost the war in December, the voices of Chairman of the TPLF, Debretsion Gebremichael, is not heard. There have been rumors that he was killed in one of the battles in the region.

Speaking on rumors of death including himself, Getachew Reda says “the death of individuals is a non-issue.”

  1. He is still morbidly obese. Just too fat! Can you see the two hot dogs wrapped around his front neck? I bet you there are three of them on his nape!! That does not look like a person consistently running away from the wrath of Jula and Bacha. He looks like a person daily filet mignon, pasta sugo di pomodoro and ragu alla bolognese never departed him. In fact I did not tell you this. He has been chilling right here with me. Shhh!!! Don’t tell that to Jula. Please!!!

  2. Dear Borkena,
    You well know Tplf is a terrorist organization. Why then would you grant them a promotional space? That is to say, What do you aim to achieve by giving it support?

  3. Humble Opinion
    Freedom of civilized expression — sadly, not our African trait — is absolutely essential. I commend for accomodating writers with various ideas and opinions.

    • Dear rezen,
      I agree in freedom of expression. My point here is on the promotion of lies as fact! Getachew is essentially creating a narrative that is not supported by evidence. Either you have not heard the above interview in its entirety or you think good journalism should not discriminate between truth and falsehood!
