ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – Chief of Staff of the Federal Armed Forces, Field Marshal Birhanu Jula, said that there would be no structure of Regional Special Force as of today. The Field Marshal said so at a gathering that appraised the integration of Regional Special Forces into federal and regional security structures, according to sources. The Ethiopian News Agency (ENA) said here today that the integration of the Regional Special Forces was reviewed in the presence of heads of federal military generals and police officers including senior officials of regional administrations.
Chief of Staff, Marshal Birhanu Jula said on the occasion that as Regional Special Forces were reorganised, a strong national security institution would be established, ENA reported.
Indicating that Ethiopia has instantly come out of security challenges, the Field Marshal mentioned the Pretoria Peace Agreement as “progressing well”, according to ENA. The fact that the structure of the regional special force has no legal ground, the threat existing among regions and the moves being made to resolve problems by force obliged the government to alter the arrangement.
He said that currently as the restructuring work has been intensified in all regions, “there is no arrangement of Regional Special Force”. Therefore, as the security structure is Federal Defence and Police Forces including Regional police structure, there will be no force that receives missions and duties in the name of Regional Special Forces, Chief of Staff said. Field Marshal Birhanu further said that henceforth work would be accomplished on transporting and placing all as per their interest to wherever they are assigned.

Yes sir!!!! These so-called regional forces have turned up to dens of bigots except those in Afar and Somali regions. Dismantle all them properly so innocent members will not be thrown out and dry with no other immediate means to make a living. Those regional forces especially the ones in Oromia and Amhara regions have proven to be loaded with hateful miscreants that are putting that gem of the colored in grave danger. These regional forces were created to supplement the regular police force in safeguarding the laws of the land and protecting civilians. But they have been caught killing and displacing innocent civilians in both regions more so in Oromia. They either participate in such savage act or turn a blind eye when such atrocities were committed right in front of their eyes. Break them apart into irreparable pieces and send those bigots on a one way ticket to where they come from. Good riddance!!!
Folks, pay attention on what is going on next door. Sudan is burning. The two powerful gangsters are duking it out setting major cities and towns on fire. There is mass civilian casualties caught up in the crossfire. There is no question in my mind that Egypt’s filthy long arm is in this bloody conflict. Egypt has not been happy with Sudan’s lately cajoling up to the old country regarding the GERD dam. Now el-Sisi is trying to be a peacemaker. My thoughts go out to those innocent and freedom longing Sudanese brothers and sisters who are falling victims in this senseless mayhem.
our hope is thst the ENDF does not become subservient to PP politics especially of ODP. In that case, back to square one.
Liyo ceating or disbanding isn’t necessarily an indispensable for the country survival but sets bad precedent and lawlessness one after another. Without stable and competent institution, civil servants, civil societies ,etc. a nation cannot function and exist for long. It seems that there are no laws , rules, and stable institutions that outlast any given regime. One regime creates institution in rush for political convenience and without thinking or without following any laws and the next one nullifies the same institution without bothering following any laws, old on new . So the lawless cycle continue.
Ceating or disbanding the Liyu Police forces isn’t necessarily an indispensable for the country’s survival but it sets bad precedent and lawlessness one after another. Without stable and competent institutions, civil servants, civil societies ,etc. a nation cannot function and exist for long. It seems that there are no laws , rules, or stable institutions that could outlast any given regime. One regime creates institution in rush for political convenience and without thinking much or without following any laws and the next one nullifies the same institution without bothering to follow any laws, old on new ones . So the lawless cycle continues.
a one-sided national army is as bas as the liyu hayl, so who is going to make sure there is fairness??
