By a patriotic Ethiopian

In my most recent posting, referring to an article in the Financial Times of December 2, 2014, I wrote about the unusual revelations of the current mafia-like TPLF regime holding power in Ethiopia. The revelations are related to some of the dreadful situations the Ethiopian people have been going through during the past 23 years under the cruel administration the TPLF mafia. Prior to coming to the attention of readers of the Financial Times, these criminal acts were described to have been communicated to potential international investors for risk assessment. Thanks to the Financial Times, skeptics and/or deniers could eventually prove them coming directly from the mouth of the horse itself.

In the document submitted to investors, the regime has unambiguously admitted that during its tenure in power in Ethiopia, it has (1) committed human rights violations,

(2) caused escalation of political turmoil, contributed to the widespread prevalence of famine,

(3) played a role in the underdevelopment of the country, partly reflected by bottom level index measurements,

(4) contributed to greater prevalence of poverty,

(5) lead to ever increasing difficulty of using sea outset facilities,

(6) caused political and military tensions with neighboring countries, and

(7) contributed to the overall flourishing of poor governance across the country and the emergence of many associated problems.

Let alone committing such horrendous criminal acts, with the admission of even lesser offenses against a nation and its people, a regime with some sense of responsibility is normally expected to apologize to the people affected and resign from power as soon as possible. History provides ample examples of such incidences in different parts of the world and the peaceful transfer of power from abusive regimes to the people when mistakes with potential serious adverse consequences are realized to have been committed. Accepting conventional wisdom, with admission of the above stated wrong doings by the regime, it naturally appears reasonable to expect voluntary abdication of power in favor of the choice of the Ethiopian people, who have been fighting relentlessly opposing the regime’s numerous criminal deeds. However, from what has become clearer more recently, the TPLF mafia organization is not ready to change its routines of committing sins against Ethiopia and its people, although it has openly admitted part of them to foreigner benefactors.

After making open admission of its crimes, the regime, being committed to its long-lived routines, has been witnessed taking serious offensive measures against peaceful and lawful demonstrators in Addis Abeba and Bahir Dar, only during the last two weeks. In the process of its savage action, many demonstrators, including young children and elderly citizens, have been killed, wounded, imprisoned and tortured by armed government police forces. Other citizens have also been harassed and threatened indiscriminately in order to cast fear upon them, thereby discourage them from participating in future demonstrations and expressing their God-given rights against the regime. These being the most visible recent events in the country, in the background, the imprisonment, torturing and harassment of dissent journalists and politicians are going on routine basis. Regime-induced factors that contribute to the prevalence of famine, poverty, underdevelopment and political unrest are also fully functional. In a nutshell, there is no any shred of detectable change of heart of the regime after its admission of wrong doings. From mere common sense, one may then ask, why admitting crimes if there is no intention of learning from them and making necessary changes as found appropriate?

These seemingly contradictions of the regime, can, however, be a lesson to others who are not sure of its nature. The regime is organically evil that cannot be changed by any means explainable by a rational human being. The crime admission it has made with no consideration of change of heart shows that it is deliberately carrying the crimes and it is also in belief that nothing will happen to stop this. The regime is made of a group of unusual people with negative and violent experiences during most of their lives, like serial killers who are obsessed of killing people with no good reason. In addition to the aforementioned crimes, these are the people who have also committed treason against the nation of Ethiopia, forced displacement of poor rural communities and ethnic cleansing, particularly the Amara people, among others. The only way to stop this evil regime is to destroy it. If the Ethiopian people are longing for freedom and happiness, they have no choice but to totally replace the regime by a system that they desire. Short of this, freedom and happiness will only remain elusive.

Long live Ethiopia, the birth place of the human race on Planet Earth.

    What’s Ethiopian life worth to fellow diasporas and rich people ?
    we need to stop the migration of Ethiopians to dangerous lands such AS the SAUDI ARABIA by lending a helping hand while they are in Ethiopia.

    Most Ethiopians go in exile for economic reasons. very seldom people like Kasahun are honestly exiling for lack of freedom while living comfortably.

    Please proove Tigrayans are always remebered by diasporas and TPLF officials by continuing to send money.



    This 8 year old girl, Selam, is a student at the Nicolas Robinson School in Mekele, Ethiopia and she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on 16 December. Her parents were terrified when they heard the news. We sent the diagnosis and test results to our doctor back in Switzerland and he said she had about 2 weeks to live if untreated. We immediately flew her to Addis Ababa which has the only hospital in this country of 90 million people with facilities for treating this condition, but her case was too advanced and too complex for them (see photo no 1). With the clock ticking, several friends in Addis worked with us to get her and her father on a plane to Bangkok which has an excellent hospital to treat leukemia. She was given a blood transfusion just hours before boarding the plane and finally arrived there yesterday, Christmas Eve, after a long and exhausting journey (see photo no.2). Henry, a friend of ours who lives in Bangkok, was there to meet her and to pay the hospital a deposit on our behalf so they could start the treatment immediately. Her life is worth everything to the girl and her family – and of course to us. What does it cost? Leaving aside for a moment the cost of the airfare and the actual medical treatment, the cost of each and every day she spends in the hospital (which could last for a few weeks) would cost her father 4 months’ income. In other words he would have to work more than a lifetime to pay the costs needed to save his daughter’s life. There is no insurance in Ethiopia to support such costs. In the “developed” world, some people regularly pay this amount of money ($200) for a nice meal at a smart restaurant or for a Christmas gift which will lay abandoned in a cupboard before New Year’s Day arrives. If you would like to help support the cost of Selam’s treatment, please send money through our website http://www.rainbows4children.org/index.php/donations/. Please mark your donation “For Selam”. In case we receive more money than needed for Selam, we will put the balance into a fund to support similar medical emergencies for children at the school. Thank you and best wishes for a healthy New Year. Max and Kathryn Robinson
