Toronto – On Saturday, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed attended – perhaps led is the right word – a public rally in Welkite, which is about 151 kilometers west of the capital Addis Ababa. 

The turnout was good and there was a presumption that Abiy Ahmed’s party, which boasts to have over 14 million members, mobilized the party structure to force people to come out and show support for his government. 

As it turns out, the government did worse things than that to force the people to show up in the support rally. According to a report by Ethio News, so far a credible news source with links to local levels, on Sunday reported that the government was threatening ethnic Gurage business communities in Addis Ababa to influence their communities in  Wolkite to show up at the support rally. 

According to the report, they were threatened that they will not be allowed to continue doing business if they fail to do that. Why was that necessary?  The source added that the Prime Minister felt humiliated when residents of Wolkite declined to show up when he visited the town amid ongoing strikes in 2023. 

The Prime Minister used the rally in Welkite, this past Saturday, as a way to demonstrate that his government still enjoys “popular support.”  Before taking part in a public rally in the open air, Abiy Ahmed organized a series of meticulously organized “discussion” forums with “representatives” from different regions, communities and religious groups to make the point that the opposition to his government does not have a rational basis. Furthermore, he made the “representatives” give testimonials that he is relentlessly working to “ensure Ethiopia’s prosperity.” 

In his speech at Wolkite this Saturday, he portrayed armed groups that are resisting his government as having no cause except serving forces who are working to divide Ethiopia and who are paying them.  Many of his political critics no longer take his works seriously but there are also those who remarked that his statement is aimed at making causes that made people raise arms against his government irrelevant. In the case of the Fano movement, which officially started in August 2023, it is clearly stated that the goal of the armed struggle is to reverse existential threat against ethnic Amhara. Abiy Ahmed himself, during the “discussion” with “representatives” from Amhara begging for elders to help him make peace with Fano forces even with “whatever compensation” he has to pay. 

This week, BBC Amharic published an investigative report that Abiy Ahmed’s party deploys “media army,” to mislead and misinform the public.

  1. “Mobilized the party structure to force people to come out and show support for his government.”
    Ladies and gentleman, you can always expect banda diasporas to create their own narratives as if they really are on the ground with the Ethiopians in the homeland. Ethiopias largest enemy now is it’s own diaspora. These media outlets only know how to do one thing and that is lie and deceive. Imagine what heights Ethiopia can reach if we all worked together. Why is it a sin for people to work together for the benefit of everyone in Ethiopia? Why does everything have to be negatively narrated? Why choose to be antagonists to even the good that is being done? If you oppose development, peace, economic growth, educational reform, etc. then you are anti-Ethiopia. If the govt says Ethiopia’s GDP is growing then you bandas say it’s a lie. If the IMF says Ethiopia is rapidly growing and is now 4th/5th highest GDP in Africa then you bandas silently burn. You can’t accept, maybe, that an Oromo man is actually getting things done while having faced a cruel war in the north, and then now facing another shifta group in the north and while holding off shene in the south and west. Or could it be that you simply won’t be satisfied if your particular ethnic group is not the face of Ethiopia? May God protect Ethiopia from banda diaspora and the shiftas they support.

    Oh shut your trap, two-bit pp cadre!!!!! Only a sycophant pp imbecile would delude himself/ herself to hoodwink Ethiopians about a forced rally by a delusional government whose PR campaign is always just a mirage. Ethiopians who grew up and still remember very well, the shenanigans and back room arm twisting, the Derg and it’s sycophantic cadres resorted to “show support” and “rally” for big brother on the throne.

    Who are you idiots fooling? Who is your targeted audience????? The West 🙂 ??? Nobody knows who your boy-king is and no amount of your theaters of the absurd and theatrics of the desperate would amount to a bag of beans. Try to grasp that numb skull cadres!!!!!!

    Your abiy came to power with unprecedented support from tens of millions of Ethiopians from the motherland and from abroad. His ethnicity was not a factor in his rise to the helm. What mattered was his fake message for unity, equity, accountability and commitment for the betterment of all Ethiopians.

    In the past 6 years, Ethiopians witnessed the massacre of a million people, the displacement of tens of millions, a currency devaluation of -150%, food insecurity of 30,000,000 Ethiopians, the denial of due process for tens of thousands of prisoners of conscience, an uncontrollable and rampant inflation north of 40%, the complete break down of law and order across the nation, the displacement and forceful eviction of an estimated 500,000 people in Addis Ababa and her environs alone!!!!!!

    Give us a break!!!!!! This is the report of your boss and boy-king before whom you want everyone to genuflect and prostrate.

    Yeah a government cadre who does not earn an honest living, who cannot and does not know to earn his or her bred through diligence, hard work will bark for a piece of bone to be thrown from the master.

    DESPOT ABIY AHMED RESIGN NOW VOLUNTARILY OR YOU WILL SOON BE RESIGNING WHEN ALL YOUR OROMUMMA CHICKENS COME HOME TO ROOST.

    • Keep crying all you want. No one will care about your western tears. You are a banda worse than the one’s who took the Italians all the way down to Debub. You are all empty talk and antagonism, but Ethiopia will continue to grow regardless of you insurrectionist supporters. Shene/OLF could not defeat Ethiopia since the 60’s, TPLF having 80% of the nations weaponry got their ass handed to them. Finally, Fano will also meet their demise and you rebel supporters will be remembered as enemies of Ethiopia. Keep crying and sending your money to support these terrorist groups but Ethiopia will prevail.

    • If you hate the current government that much, why don’t you joint your delusional comrades. I will happily fund it. Note that if Abiy resign the country still be under the control of PP! Just in case you don’t know. Like I said, you need to join the fight to overhaul the entire government structure your way (whatever it is); nobody will fight for you anymore. One thing I can tell you the end of these nonsense is coming soon – mark my words. The Ethiopian people are getting smarter and know how the enemies are. False information not getting thru like used to be because they can see the result in real time. I am sorry for all your disappointment and for you to see Ethiopia getting better by the day!

  3. “One thing I can tell you the end of these nonsense is coming soon – mark my words. The Ethiopian people are getting smarter and know how the enemies are.”

    You got that one perfectly right, two-bit pp cadre!!!!! The nonsense, the reign of terror and horror of the boy-king, aka 7ኛ ጨ is coming to its disastrous end. Like all tyrants in the history of the world, this tin can dictator is also seeing the WRITINGS ON THE WALL.

    Remind us two-bit cadre, what happened to all the cadres and murderers of the derg and woyane era?????? Tomorrow you too will disappear, disintegrate and vanish for good, your boy-king is receiving his rude awakening every second of everyday.

    DESPOT ABIY AHMED RESIGN NOW VOLUNTARILY OR YOU WILL SOON BE RESIGNING WHEN ALL YOUR OROMUMMA CHICKENS FINALLY COME HOME TO ROOST!!!!

    AND ALSO TAKE YOUR TWO BIT BARKING OROMUMMA CADRES WITH YOU :). :). 🙂

    “Note that if Abiy resign the country still be under the control of PP! “

    Come again two bit pp cadre, all ears here:-

    You are talking about the pp whose two front wheels are gone and whose third wheel is on flat tires and his oromumma fourth wheel is one sorry piece of deflated ego tire. Keep driving the pp smoke bellowing clunker to its final ditch. Now take a hike!!!!!

    • The PM could be from other ethnic groups like Gambella, Benishangul, Hadiya, Sidamo, Gamo, Gofa, Kembata, Gedeo, Kaffa and degenerate imbeciles like you would still wage a digital war against their administration/govt because you are backwards thinking people. You can’t accept that Ethiopia is diverse, you can’t accept the beauty that comes in diversity. You keep throwing out the word “OROMUMMA” and displaying your ethno-nationalist views for all to see. Can’t take people like you seriously. In fact, I hope Oromo’s get it together and fully unite so people like you can burn with rage at their unity and influence as a large group.
