ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – General Tefera Mamo’s wife, Menen Haile, was arrested last evening by the Federal Police, her husband General Tefera Mamo told Tikvah-Ethiopia.

The General said that the police arrived home around 6:00 p.m. in the evening and searched until 9:30 p.m. 

The General told Tikvah-Ethiopia that the reason for her arrest had “connection with the message she communicated previously on social media”.

Tefera said that the police conducted the search at his home in the presence of observers from his neighbors but no illegal actions were taken during the search.

“After the search, the police have taken my Kalashnikov [gun] along with certain bullets including Menen’s passport and bank book,” General Tefera said. It is to be recalled that General Tefera Mamo, who headed the Amhara Region Special Forces was detained after criticizing Ethiopia’s Prime Minister in a television interview, BBC reported on 28 May 2022. General Tefera Mamo has not been allowed to travel abroad for medical treatment.

  1. Fannos must put down their arms and let the unarmed civilians live peacefully and in harmony. Ethio 360, Dere News, Anchor Ethiopia youtube channels, Mesay Mekonen, Shalmeka Dawit, Debteraw Habtamu Ayalew, , Atto Abebe Belew Atto Dokkotor Yonas Biru, Abebe Belew, Geletaw, Habtemy Ayalew and other ringleaders of fannos must be held accountable for Amhara massacre!! All must be deported!!Innocent civilians are dying for power hungry genociders in USA.

    Innocent Amhara people should NOT die in vain for the few demagogue servants of Shabiya Amhara elites in USA and rest of the world. Amhara people should not allow the power-hungry men like Shaleka Dawit and his accomplices to overshadow the needs and wellbeing of the general population in Amhara region any longer.

    Stop the war in Amhara region , call a halt to hostilities,put down their weapons , and resolved your differences peacefully through a series of negotiations.

      • Damn, such a racist, supremacist response calling someone a Galla aka God’s rejects. At the end of the day what that commenter said is not wrong. Peace for the Amhara will not come from Fano. As a non-Amhara I feel for them and also want to see the non-racist Amhara grow and prosper. But for the likes of you, the racists, Amhara or not, may you suffer miserably.

  2. 1). She goes by Menen Haile and claims being from Wollo. Is she Ethiopian from Wollo?

    2). Her Ethiopian Passport identifies her as Etalem Haile-Mariam [Seyoum Teshome showed her passport on Yeneta Tube]. Did she get the passport via legal means & process?

    3). Seyoum also showed footage of her & Eritrea’s top general – the two alone – [in the general’s home & compound]. Are they relatives? Is she a deep undercover Eritrean agent?

    *There are many similar cases like Tewodros Kassahun [Teddy Afro] & Hamleset Muchie…

    **Seyoum also showed a letter regarding Eskinder Nega from the American University’s Registrar’s Office that said ≈ “Eskinder REGISTERED ONLY for fall/winter 83/84 (!?)”

  3. በጫት መርቅኖ የሚንተባተበውን ክፍት አፍና የኦሮሙማው ሌባና አራጅ ቡድን ሎሌ ማንም የሚሰጠው ጆሮ ወይንም እህሳ አሁን የለም:: አበቃ እኮ አልቋል:: በጫት መርቅኖ የሚንተባተበውን ክፍት አፍና የኦሮሙማው ሌባና አራጅ ቡድን ሎሌ ማንም የሚሰጠው ጆሮ ወይንም እህሳ አሁን የለም:: አበቃ እኮ አልቋል::

    What right does a government lackey and trumpet blower like the chat addict and chatterbox like seyoum teshome to show the passport of another Ethiopian citizen.

    Is seyoum teshome an employee of the Ethiopian Immigration office? An employee of any of the current so called regional or federal government offices in Ethiopia???

    አንድ በጫትና በአደንዛዥ ሱስ ተሞልቶ: መርቅኖ በሚንተባተብ ተራ የወሬ ለቃሚና የኦሮሙማው ማፊያ ቡድን አጨብጫቢ የአንዲት ኢትዮጵያዊት የመኖርና ህልውና መብት: ግለዊ ማንነት መታወቂያ : ፓስፓርት ወዘተርፈ ሲመዘበር ሲገፈፍ: ኢትዮጵያውያን ጫንቃ ላይ እንደመዥገርና ትህኹዋን ተጣብቆ የህዝብ ደም መጣጭ አውሬና ከብት ስብስብ በአለም አቀፍ ህግ ተይዞ ለፍርድ መቅረብ ያለበትና ከኢትዮጵያውያን ትከሻ ላይ መነሳት ያለበት ስልእመሆኑ ምንም ጥርጥር የለውም::

  4. The international community now has a slightly better understanding of the plight of the Amhara people. After five years in office, it has now become increasingly clear that Ethiopia will not attain peace, growth, stability and progress while abiy ahmed is in office.

    The abiy regime is a morally, financially and ethically bankrupt collection of corrupt, criminal and unqualified kleptomaniacs. Due process, supremacy of the rule of law and accountability will never be attained on abiy’s watch.

    An outspoken critic of the pm, MP Christian Tadelle now is in police custody. The international community should not be surprised at this incident. The fiery and articulate young MP Christian Tadelle , without any fear and repercussions to his safety had challenged the neophyte in office, abiy ahmed in public in parliament. Bloodshot, eyes as red as a rotten tomato, abiy ahmed could be seen enraged and seething with anger. All this because, MP Christian Tadelle told the embezzler and vanity pet project manager, that shadow money that the pm spends, outside the control and oversight of the Ethiopian parliament. Christian also told the embezzler in office that the prime minister’s office should be audited. Furthermore, the intelligent MP even remarked in parliament that the shadow government and state sponsored terror group, which are believed to be secretly controlled by the pm and his oromumma sycophants, if left unchecked by the judiciary, would kidnap and torture members of parliament and there would be no guarantee that such an event is an impossibility.

    A year or so after this portending speech and astute insight into the nature of abiy and his regime’s goons by the young MP Christian Tadelle, he was indeed kidnapped, beaten and imprisoned by the abiy goons. The abiy regime is anti-democratic and unconstitutional. abiy and his cohorts constantly violate the inalienable rights of Ethiopian citizens. They embezzle, loot and steal public resources without accountability. The style of governance by the neophyte is political secrecy, intrigue, manipulation Machiavellianism.

    The world has faced tyrants and despots. In the 21 st century nobody is going to tolerate and allow a tinpot dictator, with a banana republic, running kangaroo courts mayhem, displace tens of millions and murder hundreds of thousands. The Arc of the Universe bends towards Justice. So it is said. It is high time for the world community to lay the groundwork for accountability and justice to take firm hold in Ethiopia.
