The Ethiopian people struggle has reached to its pinnacle. The oppressive TPLF regime is to crumble. Ethiopians of all walk of life have to be prepared what is to unfold.
The Fascist TPLF in its 25 years of brutal regime has saw seeds of hate, suspicion, disunity, false identity and history. It has established a structure that facilitate its minority regime while majority are left divided, disunited and paranoid of each other. These would create obstacles for smooth transition even after TPLF’s death.
Ethiopians have to be smart, measured, matured and human on tackling this uneven road. We have to make sure and work whatever possible to guarantee the next administration should offer equal opportunity for all of us, treat us equally under the law and ensure genuine citizenship with all our human, economic, social rights and responsibilities respected. We should make sure that any regime that follows shouldn’t be on power without our will ( genuine election) and the power should be also curbed.
While we are under such new challenge defining our future, we should remain committed and united not to let any gap where our historical enemies (local or far away) and opportunists to interfere in our country and our fate.
TPLF is not ready to negotiate for peaceful transition and ignored concerned intellectuals and elders call for transition and handover of power. It preferred resolution by force and proclaimed state of emergency law to further stifle the human rights of Ethiopians and engage in killing spree.
The following are my suggestions for the way forward to spearhead the challenge we face and pave the way for democratic and compassionate nation building.
While TPLF is still on power, we have to do some of the following ,
The main responsibility of the council and its cabinet should be first and foremost,
We need the international bodies (UN, OAU, EU, USA, UK and other organisation like Amnesty international, Human Rights and other relevant organisations) to help us during this transition which is also in their best interest.
For the implementation of such, we need every parties and Ethiopians to be far sighted and work for the better to make TPLF’s regime the last oppressive regime in the history of our country. We have to stand together and treat each other as brothers and sisters of one mother land. We need to be not deflected by selfish motives of ethnicity or religion which we belong to define our common country and future. We need to build a common country responsibly where we all are treated as equals. we need to build a country of peace and equality of which we will be proud of.

May God help us!
