ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – Leaders of Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) discussed at a confidential meeting the re-annexation of Raya area, sources said. Branch office head of Prosperity Party told Addis Maleda his confirmation about the hidden discussion held on Thursday, 10 August 2023 in Mehoni Town of Tigray Region and the decision made on the re-annexation of Raya areas by force to Tigray from 22 August 2023 to September 12, 2023”.

Political Sector Head with the Prosperity Party of Alamata Town, Moges Eyassu said that following the plan to respond the question of the identity of Raya-Alamata through a referendum, leaders of TPLF decided in a meeting held in Mehoni Town that they would launch fighting starting from 22 August 2023, Addis Maleda said.

Moges said based on information he received from meeting participants that as the defence forces have been weakened by the ongoing battle with Fano militants in various areas of Amhara Region, TPLF planned to take control of Rya-Alamata between 22 August 2023 and 12 September 2023, according to Addis Maleda.

Raya-Alamata submitted a public petition signed by six Weredas to the House of Federation asking for budget release. Following this, the leadership of TPLF has opposed the referendum idea.

Meanwhile Ethio-Forum refuted the accusation quoting an official from Interim Government of Tigray Region. “We are working for peaceful coexistence not for war,” Ethio-Forum quoted the official as saying. The official reportedly told Ethio-Forum that regarding the “intervention forces” in the Region, the Federal Government should resolve it.

  1. Raya, Alamata, Humera, Welkayit, and all villages and towns located in the vicinity of these areas belong to Tigray! All Oromos support this fact! Fannos have to leave all these areas!

    The ravaged people of Amhara are now victims of a mass killing waged by fannos who are paid servants of Shabiya!
    The Federal Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (FEACC) authorities should confiscate all the money and property of corrupted religious leaders , and property of socalled mahibrekidusan gangesters and support displaced and hungry people, including those who lost their families and wounded soldiers.
    Down Down down, Fanno robbers, killers, and servants of Shabiya!

    ———Mahibreseytan should be dismantled as soon as possible as it is supporting fannos————————

    The state should intervene and bring corrupted criminal religious leaders to justice and confiscate all their riches obtained through corrupt means.

    ——————————-Viva OLA! Viva OLA ! Viva OLA!!!!————Viva Oromiyaa Holy Synod———————–

    —- Fannos are traitors and servants of foreign mercenaries should be dismantled if they refuse to head to negotiation. ———

    Borkena editor(s),

    Can you publish terms of the Pretoria Agreement for the general audience. TPLF is not allowed to engage in any provocation or military encroachment or aggression per the Pretoria agreement.

    On the other hand, It is almost impossible to believe a single word coming out of any representative of the pp of abiy ahmed and cohorts.

    One thing is absolutely certain though, abiy ahmed and his oromumma pp are enemies of the Amhara people, and abiy ahmed has zero credibility. So do his sycophants. ZERO CREDIBILITY!!!!! NADA!!!! ZILCH!!! RIEN!!!! NICHTS!!!!! PSHICK!!!!

  3. The involvement of Eritrea in the war justifies the intervention of Tigray forces in the conflict. The Eritrean trained and armed Amhara forces should not be let to overthrow the government and occupy Oromia. Oromia is the gift of Tigray to the Oromo people and Tigray forces have the moral and legal duty to defend it. The citizens of Oromia and all the peace loving nations, nationalities and peoples must urge the government to open for the deployment of Tigray forces in Oromia.
