Wondimu Ibsa argues Oromo was never oppressed, what is the “100 years dirt narrative?”



Radical forces within the Oromia regional state, with apparent support from elements in the Federal and Addis Ababa administration, have been trying to impose the region’s flag and anthem on schools in Addis Ababa.

The matter triggered a resistance – political one. Nearly one hundred students and teachers are arrested, as disclosed by Addis Ababa Police, in connection with it.

According to Oromo language speakers who translated the anthem to Amharic, the song sounds rather that it is an embodiment of radical ethnic Oromo nationalist forces political ideology. It narrates about “a hundred years dirt and oppression of Oromo people.” Wondimu Ibsa, a lawyer by profession and also of an ethnic Oromo background, argues that there was no hundred years dirt and that Oromo was not oppressed.

  1. no no it is 500 years of relentless oromo expansion, oppressive adoption of children, unwanted encroaching onto others lands (southern peoples, shoa, gondar….even tigray), imposing the flaccid language on others, wars, wars, endless wars…that is the reality which history shows. The rest is fake attempt by protestant OPDO and their friends in OLF, OFC, OLA (shane) and the diabolical diaspora Wisconsin group to twist history….history is fact not fiction..
