General Tefera Mamo named commander of Amhara special forces


Brigadier General Tefera Mamo is named as the commander of the Amhara region special force. It is Agenehu Teshager, president of the Amhara region, who made the appointment on Monday. 

Amhara Media Corporation (AMC) also said that several other military officers are appointed to lead security apparatus in the region. 

Brigadier General Tefera Mamo was a member of the Ethiopian Defense Force before he was thrown in jail by the TPLF leadership on alleged grounds of attempted coup on the government of the late Meles Zenawi. 

After he was released from prison following Abiy Ahmed’s take over as Prime Minister, he was appointed in the Amhara region to serve in the security apparatus, but that did not last long. He was removed, and even arrested, after the president of the Amhara regional state, Ambachew Mekonen and two other senior officials, were assassinated in June 2019. 

Activists on social media have been pressuring the Amhara regional state to appoint Brid. General Tefera Mamo as commander of the region’s special forces after the TPLF leaders recently unveiled plans to invade the region to retaliate what they think is an attack by Amhara forces.

  2. Dear Borkena Publisher,
    What you posted above is simply absurd and irresponsible.
    So you are saying General Tefera Mamo was sent to jail by Meles Zenawi on charges of conspiring a coup? I get that. Then he was released and appointed by Abiy to Amhara region security? Ok? He was jailed once again by Abiy following an attempted coup by General Asaminew Tsige? And then Amhara activists pressured Amhara regional state to release and appoint Gen Tefera? Wow. And Amhara president Agenehu Teshager appointed him commander of Amhara region special forces?

    You believe that? Or was it sent to you by “activists” and you posted it without reading it?

  3. General Tefera Mamo is a determined son of Ethiopia beyond the people of Amhara Region. The terrorist is working day and night to eradicate the TPLF from the face of Ethiopia,
