ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – Members of Welkait-Tegede Amhara Identity Restoration Committee expressed outrage over moves planned at Federal level to dissolve Regional Special Forces. They said that the plan has deliberately been made to quickly bind fast the Amhara people and force them to bow down to their enemies. 

Chairperson of the Peace and Security Committee of Welkait-Tegede Setit-Humera Zone, Colonel Demeke Zewdu said that his people would fend off and take steps against any movements to dissolve the Amhara Special Force. Demeke said that the moves to dissolve the Regional Special Force depict the plan to bring about the worst devastation against the Amhara people. In a situation where the demand of Welkait-Tegede Identity has not yet been responded to, at this challenging time when TPLF is preparing to wage war and the Amhara People have been on the verge of extinction… dissolving the Special Force is tantamount to declare war against our people,” Colonel Demeke said.

The colonel said that organizing the Special Force is the only alternative for the Amhara People that endured extensive sufferings. “…It will enable us to get solutions to survive the pre-planned destruction and safeguard our identity and boundaries,” he said.

“Therefore, if the government tries to make a move to dissolve the Amhara Special Force, we consider war has been declared on the People of Amhara and we would be forced to react and defend ourselves,” Colonel Demeke said.

It is to be recalled that last month residents of Gondar Town denounced any movements being made to resettle Tigray natives in their localities. The people of the town vowed to fend off any attack that would be perpetrated by the terrorist group, TPLF.

  1. Special foces of amhara and the terrorist fano must be dismantled and brought to justice for their war crimes in Oromiyaa

    Fano is composed of terrorists, cannibals ,robbers and those who sexually violent against nuns and children
    Mahibrekidusan amhara political organization is sponsor of these brutal nasty crimes

    Just Orthodox church of Russia supported russian invasion of Ukrain, EOTC supported the genocide in Tigray and Oromia
    Zehabesha.com is a terrorist website

    borkena closely working with radical amhara factions and posting their murderous ideology

    • What nonsense are you going about? Are you on some kind of drug, mentally unsound as the tribal leader, Abiy Ahmed, you are defending?

      Well, the worst criminal forces in Ethiopia are the Special forces are the Oromo Special Forces – armed and trained by the Abiy Ahmed himself and the OLF and TPLF.

      Abiy Ahmed and these forces facilitated the killings and distractions of countless Amharas throughout the country.

      Now, Abiy Ahmed wants to dismantle the other forces, Amhara Special Forces and the Fano so that these the OLF, TPLF, Oromo Forces would walk in and slaughter the Amhara people Once More!

  2. Just a Humble Question >>> I may even call it “just NAIVE”
    But let me blurt out what I feel — in question format

    a). WHY DOES ETHIOPIA NEED VARIOUS FORCES instead of ONE TO REPRESENT and DEFEND ONE ETHIOPIA.
    b) For example: In the Haile Sellasie era there was only ONE FORCE to protect one ETHIOPIA.
    c) I am just curious.
    d). What makes the MODERN CIVILIZED Ethiopians tuned to fragmentation???
    e). What is the fundamental secrete for the fragmentation???
    f). Is it to have one-hundred and one (101) mini-Ethiopian villages ???!!!!!!?????
    g). For what purpose???? Will they be members of the United Nations ??????!!!!
    h). Just a naive question. THE END

  3. It saddens me to my heart and soul to see another stupid conflict instigated by totally stupid individuals may be in the offing. If I hear one young Amhara loses his/her Allah Blessed life for this utterly dumb reason cooked by hideous rabble rousers I’m gonna hold everyone of them(you) accountable. I mean one single Amhara young man/woman even if someone lands a soft blow on his shoulder you will be on the hook with me on that one. Those of you who send your children to schools or see your adult children working here among us but have the audacity preaching war in the old country, you must be ashamed of yourselves. What you are doing is irresponsible and savagely cruel. I will also hold the current prime minister and those around him equally responsible if they take the bait and let things go out of hand leading to another stupid and disastrous war. I urge them to start dissolving first the regional special forces right in front of them that have been proven to be a den of bigots. Then proceed to others. I ask them to stop blabbering with one inflammatory remark after another. Behave like leaders. Not only ordinary leaders but leaders of more than 120 million noble people. I repeat. I will hold the Prime Minister along with all decision making officials around him, officials of Oromia and Amhara regions and those Emperor Tewodros wannabes weaseling at some joints in the north equally responsible if a single young man/woman loses his/her Allah intricately created life in any totally avoidable conflict henceforth. I’m gonna be all over your case like a cheap 3 piece suit. I never did it but I will do it this time around by sending personal letter to the International Criminal Court at The Hague to drag your sorry asses to court. I will ask them to issue an international arrest warrant for everyone of you. I’m sick, I’m sick, I’m sick, I’m sick tired of you starting one destructive conflict after another. I’m sick of it!!! I am calling on my level head Amharas to join me in this and let’s call out all those who will be responsible for starting another stupid and destructive conflict. We have to remember the fact that, that gem of the colored we all call Ethiopia has references in both the Holy Scriptures of both religions as a blessed country, not only in one but in both. Some of you who claim it was referred only in one of them shows how you are irresponsible and reveals your total ignorance of the real history of that Blessed country and its noble people. So stifle for me on that one.

    • Ittu Aba Farda, you are the worst person possible to defend the Amhara!

      Could anything be more idiotic than you saying: ” I will also hold the current prime minister and those around him equally responsible if they take the bait and let things go out of hand leading to another stupid and disastrous war.”

      Abiy Ahmed is the only one who is responsible!

      Abiy Ahmed is the stupid, senseless war, tribalism and distraction Personified!

      So, don’t wait, Hold Abiy Ahmed responsible!

      Leave the Amhara alone, they don’t need you!

      The Amhara could it for themselves, by themselves – and with genuine friends.

      They would soon show the stupid tribalists and their moronic leader Abiy Ahmed what stuff they are really made of!

  4. The hatred tplf and the oromo goons have of the Amhara is so strong that even after killing so many innocent children and elders, demolishing so many houses, raping so many Amhara women, dismantling public utilities, …doing unthinkable atrocities, even after doing all these things, they want more! what sort of hated is this? it is frightening…..

  6. When abiy points his index fingers at his critics, political dissenter, conscientious moral objectors, four of Abiy’s own fingers point back at Abiy and smoke him out as Thee Culprit. When abiy points his index fingers at his critics, political dissenter, conscientious moral objectors, four of Abiy’s own fingers point back at Abiy and smoke him out as Thee Culprit.

    Here is food for thought:

    We challenge the Abiy regime to lead by example. Show us the dissolution with credible evidence of the so called special forces in Tigray and Oromiya first!!!!!!!!

    The first special forces that must dissolve are the ones in Tigray and Oromiya because these are the only two forces that have directly attacked the ENDF. If Abiy is truly a leader of all Ethiopians his first demand would have been the dissolution of the two special forces that attacked the federal army. In any civilized nation, a prime minister or president of a country will do that. But here is the reality, Abiy is not acting like a national leader, he sees himself as champion of oromumma therefore he wants a regional Oromiya defense force to attack the Amhara, the South and the Somali and a TPLF force to be in constant war with the Amhara. If he were truly committed to peace and safety and security of citizens, he would be committed to the existence of only one defense force as stipulated in the constitution he barks about 24/7 ad nauseam and violates at will when it fits his purpose. This guy is so incompetent, unconstitutional and incapable of upholding the rule of

    “a). WHY DOES ETHIOPIA NEED VARIOUS FORCES instead of ONE TO REPRESENT and DEFEND ONE ETHIOPIA.
    b) For example: In the Haile Sellasie era there was only ONE FORCE to protect one ETHIOPIA.
    c) I am just curious.
    d). What makes the MODERN CIVILIZED Ethiopians tuned to fragmentation???
    e). What is the fundamental secrete for the fragmentation???”

    Rezen, I will try to answer your question as follows: Prior to the formation of the Ethiopian army under the leadership of Emperor Haile Selassie, the various provincial leaders of the country had a sort of regional soldiers calledጭፍሮች. So Ras Gugsa had some 10,000 during the battle of Anchiem for example. These regional forces mostly with no formal training were abolished with the eventual emergence of one national defense force under the leadership of Emperor Haile Selassie who established the Ethiopian ground infantry, the Ethiopian Air Force, (three planes were employed during the battle of Anchiem for historical context), the Ethiopian Naval Force and the Imperial Body Guard.

    By 1974, Imperial Ethiopia had approximately 45,000 well trained defense force. The derg regime under Mengistu continued on expanding this defense force which ballooned go somewhere around 400,000 members ( some not so well trained). The Eritrean Ethiopian war of the 1970s to 1990s and the TPLF collaboration probably were the causes for the re-fracturing of the national defense force to at least two: a TPLF only loyal army and the subsequently former Ethiopian defense force subsequently disbanded by Meles Zenawi. Now on Abiy Ahmed’s watch the former OLF which in fifty plus years of its existence never controlled an inch of territory has infiltrated the Ethiopian Army and the Oromiya special force is equating itself with the Ethiopian army. This situation occurred on Abiy’s watch and with his blessings. He coined the term Shene and allowed this group which most analysts actually identify as nothing but the militant wing of the prosperity party itself. In fact, in a very disturbing interview, the Oromiya police force leader himself said something to the effect “the OLF cannot be considered a force beyond the control of the ENDF, but someone wants to use Shene as a threat to advance some agenda”. In the past the Abiy regime used to blame Shene and TPLF for all the evils in the country, but now it looks like his hands are implicated too and his government was involved as well.

  7. Ittu Aba Farda, you are the worst person possible to defend the Amhara! A Trojan Horse!

    Could anything be more idiotic than you saying: ” I will also hold the current prime minister and those around him equally responsible if they take the bait and let things go out of hand leading to another stupid and disastrous war.”

    Abiy Ahmed is the only one who is responsible!

    Abiy Ahmed is the stupid, senseless war, tribalism and distraction Personified!

    So, don’t wait, Hold Abiy Ahmed responsible!

    Leave the Amhara alone, they don’t need you!

    The Amhara people could do it for themselves, by themselves – though they would welcome genuine friends.

    Defiantly, they don’t kneed the phony friends, Trojan Horses like you.

    They would soon show the stupid tribalists and their moronic leader Abiy Ahmed what stuff they are really made of!
