Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on Monday said he spoke to Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau. He did say the details of the conversation except saying “number of issues including deepening our bilateral ties.” 

He tweeted 

“I held a productive phone call with my friend, Canadian prime minister @justinTrudeau on a number of issues including deepening our bilateral ties.” 

Abiy Ahmed’s phone conversation came as social media sources are reporting about asylum arrangements for Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) leaders in Canada. 

Some even tend to link African Union Chairperson, Moussa Faki Mahamat, visit to Canada as something that has some connection with asylum arrangement for the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) leaders who are losing the war they started in Northern Ethiopia about two years ago. 

Justin Trudeau usually tweets when he has a conversation with Ethiopian authorities, but not this time.  The office of the Prime Minister of Canada did not did not publish updates about it either, as was the case with the previous two phone conversations in 2022. 

The TPLF leaders dominated Ethiopian Politics for nearly three decades and lost dominance in the Federal government in 2018 following a prevalent and persistent demonstration in the country. 

They retreated to the Tigray region of Ethiopia in the North after losing dominance in the central government where they orchestrated an attack on the Northern Command of the Ethiopian Defense Force with the aim to confiscate weapons and march to the capital Addis Ababa with a military force. The development escalated to war as the Ethiopian government responded to the attack on the defence force and launched what it called a law enforcement operation. 

Despite piles of records of crimes against humanity and gruesome human rights violations, the ethnic supremacist organization  (TPLF) has been enjoying support from western powers – notably from the United States, United Kingdom and Ireland – both when they were in power and after they lost it. 

Seven TPLF leaders, including Tsadkan Gebretensae whom the BBC report hailed, citing analysts, as ” the finest military strategists of his generation in Africa,” and Getachew Reda who has been serving as spokesperson for the organization,  are currently in South Africa for a peace talk with the Ethiopian government. 

Many Ethiopians tend to think that the TPLF leaders would not return to Tigray. It is predicated on the view that more than 70 percent of the region is now under the Ethiopian Defense Force which is also marching to Mekelle, the seat of the Tigray regional state. 

There is also a view among the majority of Ethiopians, as expressed on multiple social media platforms, that TPLF leaders should face justice for all the massacres they caused including children and women in many parts of Ethiopia including Afar and Amhara region. 

If the leaders get asylum in Canada, it would be something that would tarnish the image of Canada as a champion of human rights. It remains to be seen if the immigration policy in the country would be bypassed to accommodate the TPLF criminals for whom the United States has been caring so much.

  1. Of course no one trust Abiy Ahmed. His mind set and brain is rot in cruelty, immorality, greed, and lies. It is the saddest and darkest time for Ethiopians to fall in his brutal blood stained hands.

    Just like Monster Mengistu Hailemariam and TPLF Monster Abiy Ahmed is the most hated and despised person because of his cruelty, war, Human misery and Hundred thousands of innocent lives lost just in 3 years.

    His ousting should be soon and the the silent WEST in the face of Amhara Genocide and human misery must help Ethiopians to get rid of the Modern Day Savage Barbarian Oromo OLF, Shene and Prosperity Party in Ethiopia.

  2. Is Canada the hideout place for Brutal Criminals and Murderer TPLF running from from Justice or for innocent refugees who scape Brutal Criminals and Murderous regimes?

    It that the loot, billions of dollars TPLF looted from Ethiopians that attracted Canada to welcome those notorious TPLF Criminals and Murderers or is it ignoring the pain and sufferings of TPLF victims of and their families and people?

  3. I believe the story about the phone conversation part between the two prime ministers but I don’t believe the asylum arrangement story. It may sound true if the two officials discussed scenarios and the fate of Debre and his gang if Mekele falls in the middle of the peace talks. I don’t know how PM Abiy can deal with the outrage from the victimized Afars and Amharas if an arrangement is made where Debre and his cabals will be pardoned and in return they will retire from politics. I don’t know how that will be doable. But what do I know? I ain’t a politician. But I will keep checking back here on this website for the latest drift coming from the direction of Pretoria. It will be very interesting.

  4. One can vividly recall that the late TPLF leader and ethnic supremacist Meles Zenawi reportedly hailed colonialism as the era of modernization and progress and blamed the underdevelopment of Tigray on Amhara/black colonialism. In the prelude to its massive armed attacks and subsequent months, the TPLF used its narrative of superiority to mobilize the Tigraian youth. According to the TPLF narrative, the Tigraians are golden people, superior and are indomitable. They will with no doubt win the war with the inferiors and reassert their supremacy. he war is between

  5. BTW , the clique TPLF sypathizers like thst Norwegian professor, Alex de Waal, Le Forte et al. .were busy hinting this idea since the woyane”s battlefield last year. If this is true, I am shocked that Canada is giving safe haven to these sadust criminals and notorious human rights abuse like the TPLF bigwigs in change for its good name of its people and nation in which its constitution rooted on the premises of ” Peace and Order, Justice and Good Governance.”
    They should investigate before allowed entry anyone involved in those horrendous abuses. including abuse and killing of Canadadian citizens like Bashir Makhdal who tortured and jailed over 10 years without due process and fair trial by the Woyane.

  7. Abiy knew better. Canada is part of the White Supremacist West – WSW. It’s just that Canada is very clever at playing the ‘Good Cop’ making the others look ‘Bad Cops’.

    FYI: Canada’s Foreign Minister, Melanie Joly, was the only that summoned Ethiopia’s Ambassador right after TPLF massacred ENDF’s Northern Command and triggered war.

    Fast forward: Canada never disapproved of the WSW’s anti-Ethiopia embargoes and sanctions. Canada even issued the worst Travel Advisory on Ethiopia over a week ago.

    History: CIDA is Canada’s ‘aid agency’. In the late 1990’s, even the receptionist at CIDA Ethiopia was an Eritrean woman. She used to answer calls in Amharic although the calls were in English/French. If CIDA was there for Ethiopians, why didn’t it hire Ethiopians?
