Major Wubante Abate, a prominent Fano leader and founder of Guna Brigade of Fano forces in Gondar, is reportedly killed in action.

According to social media sources, he was killed on Tuesday but details of it are not yet made public. 

He was reportedly killed in Dera district, Gelawdewos area following a day-long battle against government forces deployed in the area. Major Wubante has reportedly served in the Federal police force. He became a businessman after leaving the Federal police force and was leading what those who are close to him say a successful life. He abandoned his business and family to join the movement to reverse the existential threat to the Amhara people, as Fano forces describe it. 

After suffering recurring humiliating military losses in the region, Abiy Ahmed’s government resorted to a strategy of divide and conquer whereby he mobilized well-paid ethnic Amhara forces to fight against Amhara Fano.  Demobilized Amhara region special forces whom it demobilized a few months before its military campaign in Amhara region – to “disarm Fano forces.” There has been resistance in the region to disarm while the TPLF force still has more than 270,000 armed forces. 

Fano in Gondar has released a statement on Wednesday regarding the killing of Fano Wubeante, as reported by Ethiopian Media Services. The statement hailed the services of Fano Wunante chronicling the battles he led and his pivotal role in the formation of “Amhara Fano in Gondar.”  The group vowed that it will undertake a retaliatory military campaign. The statement described him as successful in his social relation, business and family, and that he joined the struggle for the sake of Amhara people.

Fano Forces operate in Four areas of the Amhara region: Gojjam, Gondar, Shewa, and Wello. Recently, there has been a report that the movement is working on a single command structure by uniting all Fano Forces. 

When the Abiy Ahmed-led government declared a state of emergency in Amhara region in August 2023, it was announced that the military campaign would be finalized within two weeks. As it turns out, government forces were unable to accomplish the mission and the state of emergency was extended by four months after it ended in late January this year. 

Reports from local sources indicate that the Federal government is currently relying more on military and reorganized Amhara region special forces in its military engagement against Fano. 

The Ethiopian government has not yet remarked about the killing of Fano leader in Gndar, Shaleka Wubante Abate.

    This famous quote from the third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, captures the essence of the Fano Movement and Its Ethical, And Morally Justified Resisistance Against The FASCIST, MURDEROUS OROMUMMA GANG of abiy ahmed.

    ታጋይ ይሞታል እንጂ አይሞትም እኮ ትግሉ:
    ፍትህ : እኩልነት ነፃነት አላማው ስለሆነ ድሉ::
    ነውር አያውቄው ሌባው የበሻሻው ተኩላ:
    የበታቸኝነት ስሜት ያጠቃው የታሪክ አተላ::
    ስድስት አመታት ሆነው ሲገድል ሲያሳርድ:
    መምራት ስለማይችል ስለሌለው ዕቅድ::
    ከእውቀት የነፃው: የአእምሮ ድንኩ: የበሻሻው ፋራ:
    ፓርክ ሰራሁ የመኪና ማቆምያ ብሎ የሚያጉራራ::
    በእድሜ እጥፍ የሚበልጡትን አዛውንት አስቁሞ:
    ሰገጤው ልከበር አለ በፅኑ አእምሮዎ ታምሞ::
    ግን ባህልና ስርዓት: አዋቂ ስለሆነ ኢትዮጵያዊው:
    የኦሮሙማውን ጋጠወጥ ነውረኛ አለው ወራዳው!!!!!

    abiy ahmed MUST RESIGN!!!! There are NO alternatives to this inevitable and irrevocable denouement. This unalterable determined fate has fallen on abiy ahmed and his oromumma cult because of their own making.

    1) abiy is a morally and ethically degenerate individual. ምንም አይነት የስነምግባር አርአያ የሌለው ግለስብ ነው::
    2) he is surrounded by even worse degenerates and sycophants incapable of responsible governance
    3) he encourages crimes, looting, stealing, embezzling, extra judicial killings and executions.
    4) he and his oromumma gang have committed massive crimes against humanity, including crimes that rise to the levels of genocide
    5) he is responsible for the mass displacement of tens of millions on his watch. Ethiopia has the highest IDPs in the entire world that occurred on abiy’s watch.
    6)abiy is responsible for the massive inflation is the range of 60% , devaluation in the range of -400-450% of the Ethiopian birr in the parallel market and a well documented at least -150% in the” official “ bank rate.
    7 abiy and oromumma have violated entire sections of the Bill of Rights articles in their own current Ethiopian constitution
    8) the moment the judiciary branch even slightly extends its long arm of the law, the entire abiy and oromumma thievs and murderous squad will be implicated, charged and prosecuted. To avoid this inevitable truth, the abiy regime will not allow the rule of law to get foothold in Ethiopia

    9) without the rule of law the banking sector, the economy, freedom of movement , travel, etc, none of these can happen

    10) there will not be peaceful power transition while abiy and oromumma are around, all opposition parties and their members will continue to be imprisoned, harassed and executed.

    abiy and oromumma cannnot win a single seat in so called oromia zone, let alone rest of Ethiopia.


    የኩሽ ኤምፓየር እኮ ገና ሳትፈጠር ጨንግፋ ድምጥማጧ ጠፍቷል:: በፈራረሰች ኢትዮጵያ ላይ የምትመሰረት በታሪክ እስከዛሬ ያልነበረች ወደፊትም የማትኖር ኦሮምያ የምትባል የኦሮሙማው ጋጠወጥ የህልም አገር ፈፅማ አትኖርም :: እንግዲህ እርማችሁን አውጡ አምስት ስድስት አመት ተሞከረ:: ኦሮሙማ ጨንግፏል:: በቃ አልሆነም ሁሉ ኬኛ ከስሯል ወደፊት እጥፍ ድርብ ይከስራል ገና::

    abiy is incompetent, he knows it!!! you are incompetent, you know it. you can’t solve the60% plus youth unemployment in so called oromia zone alone. you have failed, you are a failed state!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Wow too much time on your hand to write all these, do you work? i found one thing funny, you said ”60% plus youth unemployment in so called oromia zone alone” wrong grammar but it is ok…. Do you know Ethiopia well? how come you expected him to bring unemployment to the lowest level in such short time? I see you are not familiar with lots of details in Ethiopia if you expected a government who is in power for only 5 years while fighting more than 3 major war. You expected North America quarterly economic progress? where are you from, why are you so wrong. Ethiopia is a poor country coming out of it nowadays due to our leader Dr. Abiy Ahmed! be honest, because some of us know what is possible and what is impossible. avoid hate and emotion, it makes you look idiot…

  2. The Prosperity Gospel founder Oral Roberts was a well known controversial figure in the USA, who once claimed unless the faithful followers donate some $ 8,000,000 US dollars, he would be called home by God, in other words, die. Comical as it may seem, a wealthy contributor named Jerry Collins donated 1.3 million dollars, fearing Roberts might commit suicide and said the following: “I did it in order to save the guy from going to heaven in a hurry. It’s got nothing to do with religion”.

    By now there is massive evidence that is piling up against the dictator and mass murderer abiy ahmed and his oromumma party. The international community must continue to exert a galvanized and concerted pressure on this totalitarian regime led by a sick, psychotic sociopath who is using state mass media to plat the seeds of bloodshed, ethnic violence and civil unrest to extend his dying and crumbling pseudo government.

    The fundamental reason for this massive state failure is the incompetence and ignorance of the so called pm. He and his oromumma prosperity party are the sole reason for the turmoils, never ending wars and clashes in Ethiopia for the past five years. The dictator was catapulted by a historical accident to his current position but his only skills are Machiavellian political dramas. And incidentally, even his dramas are not that good. He occasionally is trapped by his Freudian slips whereby he inadvertently reveals his criminal thinking. In recent televised and orchestrated political theater, the despot was seen demanding 80 and 90 year old monks including the Patriarch of the EOTC to rise and greet him in adulation. Because he is uncouth, uneducated, lacks manners and is vulgar, he thought that would project a sense of triumph and authority, not realizing to the entire world how pathetic, weak, immoral and unethical he truly is- desperation!!!!!!
