Lemma Megersa

First, it is well known that Obbo Lamma has serious health challenge. He has been traveling back and forth to Germany for treatment. Second, currently he is in the United States with his wife and children surrounded by friends and supporters for nearly two weeks in a house he owns. If you are concerned about his well-being. No worry he is in good hands! Beyond these, I doubt if he shared his plan with anyone. Why would he? But given the circumstances, it has all the hallmark of someone looking for permanent resettlement outside the country.

He has been waving the white towel for some time now. So, it is expected for the rumor to get some attractions. To me Lamma Megersa left the ring long ago.

Welcome, Login to your account.Not long after taking office, the 42 years old reformist leader from Oromo ethnic group secured the full support of most Ethiopians both at home and in the diaspora. He also fired heads of the military, police and intelligence as part of his reform.

While a few of these corrupt former officials were captured the majority escaped arrest warrant and locked themselves in Tigray, the region they went to bushes vowing to liberate from Ethiopia some four decades ago. Meanwhile after few months of Abiy coming to power, these corrupt former officials from Tigre ethnic group who hide in Mekele and their puppets who were on power in different regions of Ethiopia advancing ethnic politics over the past 27 years, launch highly orchestrated sabotage to undo the reform of PM Abiy.

The major turmoil PM Abiy faced was in Somali region from where millions were displaced by the gangs of the former president of the region Abdi Illey, who is now in jail. After his gangs killed many people from other ethnic groups in towns such as, Jigjiga, they burned churches and damaged properties of thousands of people. The federal government led by Prime Minister Abiys has smartly managed to contain the crisis in Somali region, making futile the plan of Abdi Illey to declare separation of the region from the rest of Ethiopia, using the controversial Ethiopian constitution that allows regions to easily declare independence.

This was one the many successes of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who also managed to patiently avoid similar crises in other peripheral regions of Ethiopia namely Benishangul Gumz, Afar and Gambella. During the days of his leadership PM Aby has also achieved several successes ranging from restoring peace with the neighboring Eritrea, to stabilizing the economy and liberalizing telecom, power, aviation as well as launching study to liberalize the financial sector, among others.

Meanwhile those corrupt former politicians, who escaped justice and their business affiliates from all ethnic groups as well as, the extreme ethnic politics promoters have continued spreading hate speeches, often financing ethnic clashes and displacements of millions. In my view, the major threat to the reforms of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and the danger to the unity and stability of Ethiopia is not only limited to the TPLF hardliners hidden in Mekele and continued making money though their businesses across the nation.

Now the major threat to PM Abiy in fact comes from his party and other Oromo parties and activists pro one ethnic group activists, who have the capacity to flood the streets of Addis Ababa by millions of protesters any day any time. These includes those who are subscribed to the divide and rule political narratives of the late PM Meles Zenawi, who tirelessly worked hard making many people of Oromo to believe that the Amhara people have committed crimes against their ancestors, especially during the Emperor Menelik II era.

Violation of international laws One of the recent testimony for this is the demolition of thousands of houses in the towns surrounding Addis Ababa such as, Legetaffo, Sululta and Burayu of Oromia region.

The leadership of these towns claimed that they are exercising rule of law and the settlers where illegally settled. Rather the responsibility of any government is to make sure that citizens have access to basic and proper housing, as per the international laws Ethiopia is subscribed to. Another evidence that made many Ethiopians to be suspicious about the motives of the leaders of the reform in the past few months is the recent statement issued by the ODP.

In its statement ODP opposed the delivery of government subsidized condominium houses in Addis Ababa by the city administration to the people who saved money for over a decade. Or the reformists are not walking the talk deliberately because they may have the same motive of favoring one ethnic group and their supporters from other groups like the TPLF did for 27 years, though the later robbed the nation systematically abandoning the poor people of Tigray in extreme poverty.

What is in the mind of such group of people is clear. Somehow it is understandable if people feel that way, because it used to be like that in Ethiopia as far as I know. I suggest the reformists need to fight back such attitudes, which is often followed by action like killings in Burayu at the outskirt of Addis Ababa and the recent displacements of thousands in Guji area of Oromia region.

In my view whatever dispute Oromia Region and Addis Ababa City Administration have, the two leadership should have been handling their administrative issues in closed doors. The fact that such incident has been followed by another controversial and rather toxic statement from the famous Oromo opposition party leader.
