Quick Judgements are Easy: why not contribute constructively? Aklog Birara (DR)

On October 30, 2016, I had the opportunity to express my genuine views concerning the welcome formation of the “Ethiopian National Movement (ENM).” I said at the time that this is a great start with enormous potential to do the right thing. Its potential resides in sending the right signals at the right time. Equally, ENM is embedded in the organizers willingness and readiness to reach out, embrace and empower others to join. It is not an end.

It is a beginning. In my estimation, this formation paves the way for an inclusive or All-Stakeholders Conference that Ethiopia desperately needs. The social and political motive forces that compel such a formation are Ethiopia’s millions, especially youth who have paid and are still paying with the ultimate price of losing their lives.

Thousands of Ethiopian youth sacrificed and continue to sacrifice their lives for freedom, justice, the rule of law, genuine equality among Ethiopia’s diverse population and a socioeconomic and political system radically different from the debilitating tribal system imposed on the Ethiopian people by the TPLF.

    Why is Dr. Aklog defending this new movement? Is he its new spokesperson? I know he is a Shengo leadership member. I believe he sees things superficially.

    with all due respect, What is going on Dr Aklog. you throw your full support behind a group when your organization SHENGO is completely ignored? not even invited? Dr Ermias told this in the interview on a couple of days ago. this is amazing.Come on call a spade a spade. simply put, the newly organized group is non inclusive and has avoided major opposition groups as was done by EPRDF in 1991. this is not good and will not work.

    I agree with you. Dr. Aklog is always silent about Shengo even when he is a senior boss in shengo. Did anyone hear Dr. Aklog defend or promote Shengo in his many public appearances–radio or tv? Did he promote shengo in his very many writings? Why now with ENM?
    G-7 said it created alliance with Ogaden movement and Gen Kemal Gelchu (Timret). What happened to this Timret?
    Then, G-7 said it created alliance with Tigre group in Eritrea and one day after Tigre group leader Molla asgedom defected. What happened to this alliance?
    G-7 also said it worked with Arbegnoch genbar. What happened?
    Now again a new movement? Tomorrow with whom is G-7?
    Does Dr. Aklog know this fake alliance?
    Why not say something about his own shengo?

    Dr. Aklog says, “In my estimation, this formation [ENM]paves the way for an inclusive or All-Stakeholders Conference that Ethiopia desperately needs.”
    What is the evidence showing their willingness to hold an “inclusive or All-Stakeholders Conference”? First, the organizers did not invite any other group, including his own party, Beruh or Shengo. Reason? They are not willing; they don’t to work with Ethiopian groups.
    Dr. Aklog makes mistakes in ‘advising’ us, “Read and try to understand the notion that the movement embraces Ethiopia as inviolable.” Really? Lencho letta puts the question of unity and sovereignty in question. What is this ማሽቃበጥና ጅራት መቁላት? ሰው ሲያረጅ: ይጃጃል የሚባለው ደረጃ ደረሱ’ንዴ?
