ADDIS ABABA –(BORKENA) While celebrating Meskel Holiday (finding of the True Cross) in Mekelle Town of Tigray Region, President of the Interim Administration of the Region, Getachew Reda said that a “Day of Mourning” would be observed all over the Region as of the coming week.

Getachew said addressing the people that Tigray would remember its children who have fallen during the recent bloody civil war.

President Getachew said that all should not forget that this year’s Meskel was celebrated while people who were displaced from their localities are suffering from hunger and thirst due to persecution.

“Those who lost their lives for the sake of the people should always be remembered and honoured. While celebrating Meskel Holiday, we should take into account that we are making ourselves ready to declare a national day of mourning. It should be done by making a promise to continue to honour the families of the martyrs and those who sacrificed themselves for our sake,” Getachew said.

“When we remember the martyrs, and when we honour those who split their blood, it should be in such a way that we will have to develop the fields and mountains where they fell down… Let’s rebuild the demolished infrastructures in an organized and orderly manner,” the president said.

Apart from cementing the peace agreement, all should do their part in supporting the peaceful and political struggle we are conducting so that displaced compatriots can return to their areas and the lands that are occupied forcefully be brought back to the right owners, Getached called on the people.

  1. My family joins the mothers in Tigray mourning for their sons and daughters who did not make it back home from the stupid war started by stupid warmongering commies and their heir apparent by-products. This not just one or two but hundreds of thousands who never came back with most of them didn’t even get dignified burials. Many of them died slow and agonizing deaths after being abandoned on the battlefields by their fleeing ‘comrades’. It boils my blood when I think of those young men and women who were connived into fanatically throwing their Allah created bodies into a raging inferno in front of them. I seethe in anger when I realize that no one is being held accountable for their senseless demise. No one seems to have the decency to come forward and admit mistakes. All we hear is passing the buck on others on the other side of the conflict.

    Dear moms in Tigray! I shed my tears with you. I feel helpless thinking there is nothing I can do to bring bank your adoring baby boys and daughters. I feel as if I have lost my children. May The Almighty Our Creator Be With You In Your Grief!!! May They Rest In Peace!!!!!

    • Non sense Tigray is proud of her boys and girls who fought bravely for her diginity .They have shown the enemy attacking tigray asks to pay a very ecpensive cost .No one can think attacking tigray is cost less . Our enemies loss is hundred times heavier than ours.

    • Shame on you stupid abbaa garaa!
      I think you are same as your father’s name “Fardaa”.
      You think the same way ”fardaa” thinks.
      I guess you are “tiksee ” of “fardaa “who parts like “fardaa” and “harree” (donkey) parts.
      Or you must be a kotte duudaa named in fardaa/harree name.
      Harree haadha nyaattu.
      Donkey!
      Sorry, donkey is an important animal from economic point of view but stupid in thinking.
      Parabolic connotations ,

  2. In spite of the immense losses of lives, Tigray will continue to be a regional power. It is one of the oldest civilizations in the world and its enemies should be taught unforgettable lesson.

    • It’s the oldest civilization. Fair enough . But I what do you mean by enemies?
      Ethiopians are not enemy of Tigray.
      Ethiopians are proud of the ancient civilization in Tigray.
      Tigrians should know this.

  3. My deepest condolence to the families who lost their beloved ones.
    But: once again the people of Tigray should ask, what for die these people sacrifice their lives?
    Whos war was it?
    Who started the war?
    Why?
    Who was playing the drums of war ?
    Who was being begged by many Ethiopians (Tigreans and non-Tigreans) not to start war?
    And most of all: what change did this war bring for Tigray and Ethiopia?
