Ethiopian PM calls for Unity amid mounting interventionist pressure

Ethiopia _ National Unity _ intervention
Abiy Ahmed Ali


Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on Saturday called for national unity amid increasing foreign pressure from powers in the western world. 

He shared a metaphorical message on social media where he elaborated the connotation of activities and practices performed in circular social gathering as a demonstration of Unity. 

He talked about how Ethiopians eat and dance together, the coffee ceremony, and traditional house structure. Circle, he said,  “is  a symbol of boundlessness, eternity and equality.” 

We need to encircle Ethiopia today, he added. “So as not to let those who want to divide our wholeness and challenge our unity. we need to make a circle that will not let intervention. In equality and by holding one another, let us show the world our unity and perfect wholeness,” he added. 

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government has been under increasing pressure from Western Interventionist campaign on alleged grounds of human rights abuse in the Tigray region of Ethiopia, where the government had been carrying out law enforcement operation against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front – an ethnic Tigray radical nationalist organization that ruled Ethiopia for nearly three decades with economic and “development” support from the west. 

Western governments (mainly the United States and the United Kingdom) have been also accusing Ethiopia of “obstructing humanitarian activity” in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. 

Recently, the  western allegations against Ethiopia took a new twist when a claim was made that famine is being used as a political weapon in the region. 

This week, the provisional administration in the Tigray region of Ethiopia dismissed the allegation is baseless that has negative impact on the effort to stabilize the region. 

The Ethiopian government has been saying it provided more than 70 percent of humanitarian and other aids distributed in the region, which supported more than four million people. 

Ethiopian government has admitted that there have been checkpoints in the Tigray region of Ethiopia to ensure that humanitarian activities are being undertaken in accordance with the guidelines put in place by the Ethiopian government. 

In a recent interview with Aljazeera, Ethiopia’s permanent representative in the United Nations, Taye Aske Selassie said there were cases where humanitarian workers were caught with ammunition and grenades which were meant to be delivered to TPLF – which is now operating as a guerrilla force. 

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration seems to be getting considerable support from Ethiopians, even from those who oppose him, when it comes to the action in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. 

Ethiopians in and outside the country have also been protesting western intervention in Ethiopian affairs, which is understood as an effort to revive TPLF and support Egypt in its quest to continue to monopolize waters from the Nile river. 

This past Saturday, among the other protests elsewhere, Ethiopians and Eritreans staged a protest in the United Kingdom where the G-7 countries meeting was taking place. 

Another protest is planned to take place in Geneva, where the United States President Joe Biden is expected to meet with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

  1. My fellow Ethiopians at home and around the world, we must pay attention to our courageous leader prime minister Dr. ABIY AHMED, for what he is trying to communicate with his fellow countrymen and women, before it’s too late, otherwise the result of not listening and or paying attention to our leader, the obvious consequential outcome and the ramifications will be unbearable as well as irreversible.
    “A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless. A quick-tempered man is hated. The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge. Evil men the wicked at the gates of the righteous.”

  2. Get foreign ngos/clincs statiined in Tigray, Benshangul Gumuz, Gonder out of there! They never did any positive except spread disease and create war a la soft war. It is spying method as well. There is ko such thing humanitarian while using it for violence! Track what they do. How come the ethiopians are jot wprki g with them to see they are not working with tplf groups? Leaving it to these foreign ngos means, the regiin or the country does not have responsibolity or not the owner of the cou try

  3. Lulu:-
    You are correct, that’s exactly what they are doing, including imposing their ugly cultures.

  4. My 2 cents advice for Ethiopians.

    Ethiopian you need behind to stand behind Dr. Abiy, who is preaching and practicing PEACE!! s it is known our region the Horn particularly Ethiopians, Eritreans adn Somalis, we have been killings each other for over century we don’t have a generation that has seen or heard PEACE but we are familiar with death, starvation and poverty, for how long are we going to be in a such sad state year in year out. Ethiopia is rich in resources rich in diversity and is a home of different ethicists’ that make Ethiopia unique and admired in the world. We have to say to the good word users otherwise hate and lie pushers enough to their intransigence and meddling act. the horn has seen the two sides of the superpowers and none of them benefitted Ethiopia or the Horn, look the amount of money spent to buy the ammunition and look around how many families have lost fathers, mothers, sisters, or brothers, look around how many children are living on poverty, time to look inward and take the ownership of our own affairs! Our Horn should not be a playing ground for the outsiders and grave yard for us!!! we have enough of resources, able and educated people and now we have a new Ethiopian leader who frequently talks about peace and prosperity, I obeg you to help him we us PEACE nothing else.

  5. This is the last warning to Ferenji Abiy! I want you to leave Ethiopia and go back to where you come from before this coming Monday.
    Hey Ittu! Abiy is an Ethiopian born in that country.
    No he is not an Ethiopian. He was born to a Tamil/Tutsi father and a Filipina/Navajo mother.
    Wow! You do a lot of investigative work, Ittu.
    Yes I do. I have his birth certificate, the original one. He was born on the Island of Socotra. He had entered the country illegally when he was an infant. He is undocumented and an illegal alien.
    Wow! That is a very big finding, Ittu. But there is no sign of him leaving the country. What are you going to do then?
    I will order the two Eritrean Generals Berhanu Jula and Bacha to arrest and deport him to the Philippines before the Election Day.
    Wow! Abiy, poor thing!
    Don’t you dare call my investigative report misinformation! Ever!
    No I won’t. The last thing I wanna do is messing with you. No sir!
