Aid organizations  and UN agencies had been involved in the war in Ethiopia in some way on the side of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

Last year, captured TPLF force commanders and fighters were found with high energy nutritious food from the World Food Programme. Those who were lurking as refugees in Sudan were issued with United Nations asylum seeker documents. 

The trend seems to be not ending. 

Today, the Ethiopian Defense Force shared on its social media page an image of USAID food that was seized when the joint Ethiopian Forces stormed a fortified TPLF trench fortress, in an unspecified front. Other items were also seized. 

The image shows a U.S. aid flour that was hoarded in the trenches. The aid organizations declared that the food aid was for those affected by the war and need food aid in the Tigray region of Ethiopia.

The aid agencies have not yet to reacted to the story.

The Ethiopian government is likening the situation to the 1980’s when the ten guerilla forces (TPLF) were diverting aid food for rebels. “Old habits die hard,” the government said.

It is however questionable whether something like this could happen without the collaboration of other parties including those who are claiming to have a humanitarian operation on the ground.

Just a day before the TPLF launched their third military campaign, the World Food Programme director claimed that the TPLF “stole” fuel from the WFP warehouse in Mekelle. 

Ethiopian activists have been accusing aid agencies and some governments in the west ( especially the United States) of supporting the TPLF forces under the guise of humanitarian aid and advocacy for human rights.

  1. There are reports the United States and few European cohorts have requested the “United Nations” security council to conduct special meeting next Thursday to discuss the ‘Ethiopian situation’, read how to stop the coming demise of terrorist TPLF.

    Those are leaders of modern day international terrorism, led by America. Standard terrorists like al Queda and ISIS use brute force and guerilla tactics to commit their acts of terrorism, but these new ones are “coalitions of whites” committing exactly the same acts of terrorism around the globe using all sorts of not so standard terrorist weapons for the same objectives. Coordinated sanctions and trade warfare, such as happened against China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea are examples of their no so obvious acts of terrorism.

    • “WORKU”. Indeed ‘GOLDEN’ comment


      I LOVE the insightfulness of ETHIOPIANS — BLACK AFRICANS &; BEFORE WE WERE DOWN GRADED BY COLONIAL MARAUDERS —and shamefully with the help of indigenous Black African — one of us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO wonder, the negative attitude of the WHITE MAN towards black coloured human beings, which will never subside. As the saying goes: ‘ONE SHOULD RESPECT THYSELF BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE &; I stand to be corrected, gladly.

      And the so-called ‘CIVILIZED’ Western Countries are on their way to destroy the ANCIENT AFRICAN COUNTRY, Ethiopia, into pieces ; using an African — yes, shamefully an Ethiopian !?!?!? The spirit of EMPEROR YOHANNES of TIGRAI will twitch in its grave !!!! WOW! WOW! WOW! What a disgrace what a shame what a degrading self-action what an eternal self-insulting to the BLACCK RACE in TOTALITY !!! Arn’t we then ADMITTING that …………………………………………..NEVER MIND. I may have gone too far already . THE END

  2. This is one of those stories where this young generation of our day would say ‘Is this new? Duhhhhh!!’. Production of all sorts has stopped thanks to the stupid destructive war started by stupid individuals. We have been told that farmers have not been to their farms since the start of the idiotic war sparked by idiots. Meanwhile Debre and his cabals have been rounding up those who are capable of fighting into their rag tag militia. It is natural and a dead giveaway that every food stuff that comes in from outside will be used to feed this huge army. You have to keep these conscripted youth happy by feeding them well with what is available. Nobody told me that foodstuff has been dropping from the skies over Tigray or anywhere in that entire country. When you keep munching on these highly nutritious and energy laden crackers all day in your rabbit hole then you will go very fat like walrus Getachew or beer gut Debre. Hey guys! Keep those crackers coming! We have a million rag tags to feed!!!!
