The TPLF’s Mouthpiece Cannot Wear-Down the Identities of Welkait People by Attrition

By Kaleab Tessema

I have just listened to an interview given by Mekonnen Yelewem-Wessen Weldegebriel on SBS radio based in Australia saying that Welkait was not part of Gondar. Also, he told to the interviewer that he is of Amhara ethnicity, and since Welkait is part of Tigray, the people have nothing to do with the Amhara Kilil, it has to do with Tigray Kilil. The journalist, from SBS radio asked him a pivotal question, if he could prove that Welkait was historically part of Tigray. Mekonnen tried to prevaricate when the journalist asked him pointed questions. He repeatedly said with an insolent voice, “I am speaking right now about Qimant, Welkait is in the Tigray region, and Welkait has no connection with the Amhara region.” And “scientifically and politically,” Welkait belongs to Tigray, and Amhara has no “mandate” to speak about Welkait.

Of course, ‘ዉሻ እበላበት ይጮሃል!’ it was expected from such an obtuse individual who has luck of historical knowledge which he could not even aver that Welkait was not part of Gondar. This traitorous human being is an imbecile who tries to ostracize the people of Welkait Tsegede from the Amhara society to please the TPLF which is impossible. As a matter of fact, I was not surprised by this TPLF’s surrogate frivolous talk. I would be surprised if he seemed reluctant to answer all the questions asked by the journalist.

Thus, this cold-blooded renegade Amhara tried to prove that he is real a servitor of TPLF by distorting the history of Welkait. I am not sure if Mekonnen is really an Amhara, but it does not matter whether he is an Amhara or not; there are many “Hodam” Amharas that killed Amharas. Sadly enough, this is the guy who calls himself an Amhara and he represents the Amharas whereas the TPLF cadres kill and incarcerate innumerate Amharas.

I assumed, this individual is one of the members of the Amhara National Democratic Movement(ANDM) who justifies the TPLF’s atrocities on the people of Welkait. It is not a secret, that this person and his likes were purposely hired to suppress the movement of the Amhara people in order to achieve the TPLF’s goals. It is true that TPLF has been remunerated those they believe are loyal to Woyanne and to carry out the TPLF’s unlawful acts and instructions without hesitation. TPLF-Woyanne respect and rewards people who do their dirty jobs to fulfill their wishes and interests. So, Mekonnen Yelewem-Wessen Weldegebriel is one of the hired killers who executes dirty jobs for TPLF-Woyanne.

Let me jot down some facts for the younger generation on how TPLF created the Amhara National Democratic Movement (ANDM). Before the Derg was deposed, Woyane had controlled the whole Tigray and then, the TPLF found out that there was no way to communicate with the outside world, and Tigray as a nation could not get recognition by other countries. Not only that, Tigray by itself, would not survive without the rest of Ethiopia. Then, they decided to discuss with their ally namely Shabia how to control the whole country, and started hatching an anti-Amhara individuals like: Tamrat Layne, Addisu Legesse, Bereket Simon, Tefera Walewa, and Helawi Yoseph who led the EPDM which was created as the puppet of Woyane, and latter the Ethiopian people’s National Democratic Movement(EPDM) was renamed to Amhara National Democratic Movement (ANDM) which was purposely created to demonize the Amhara. These idiots and perfidious people were not even an Amhara.

Then, after the seizure of Menilik palace, the TPLF made Tamrat Layne, a nominal prime minister, in order to consolidate their power. Sadly enough, Tamrat Layne was prime minister during the time many Amharas were slaughtered in Arbagugu and in Bedno, and these horrendous crimes were justified by Tamrat Layne.

These bogus individuals had played a key role in convincing the young Amharas to become the Woyane’s foot-soldiers, and to fight persistently against the Derg to bring Woyane to power. At the same time, these pseudo Amharas were disseminating lies through propaganda in Amharic on the radio to the Amharas to make them believe that EPRDF is a democratic government which will return the land and the properties to the people which were confiscated by the Derg.

Leaving the lies aside, the TPLF/ ANDM, whether you believe it or not, Welkait is part of Gondar and its people are an Amharas; no document or lore states that Welkait was part of Tigray. The TPLF-Woyanne regime has to think twice before making an irrevocable mistake between the people of Amhara and Tigre. To change someone’s identity by mass killing, kidnapping, raping and looting innocent civilians is not a long lasting victory, but a transient one which will have grave consequences to the TPLF and its cronies.

As it is known since TPLF came to power, thousands of people in Welkait have been savagely tortured and killed for no reason asking their legitimate rights. The TPLF regime is indiscriminately killing, arresting, beating, and severely torturing the innocent people in Welkait which is a systematic genocide. To refute my claim, anyone can check the interview by the journalist Muluqen Tesfaw. He disclosed how the Amharas are the downtrodden people in Ethiopia.

Despite all the excruciating pain the TPLF-Woyanne inflicts upon the people of Welkait, the people are determined to fight for their fundamental identities, and for their ancestral land where the TPLF confiscated by force. Recently, the people of Dabat showed their power against the Woyanne’s cadres who came to loot their properties which was a very courageous phenomenon.

The TPLF brags that they are the only brave ones and know how to pull the trigger, and other people are not brave as they are. This is pure stupidity and a decadence ideas of the TPLF regime tries to intimidate the armless people to stay in power in order to exploit and accumulate a colossal wealth. The funny thing is that the TPLF cannot discern that true power comes from the people which was proven in Libya and Tunisia where perhaps the Woyanne regime needs to learn from. As already witnessed in Gondar and in the Oromo region, the people’s uprising has begun where the minority regime seems unable to control it. Therefore, the TPLF’s bragging is an empty echo.

When it comes to Mekonnen Yelewem-Wessen Weldegebriel’s rhetoric, as I mentioned above, he unequivocally said in public that the identity of the Welkait people is an identity of the Tigre. By saying this, he receives the accolade from his bosses. Do the Amharas have to remind Mekonnen Weldegebriel of the unspeakable atrocities committed against the Welkait people by him and his likes ? It is clear that the TPLF is an archenemy of the Amhara, but at this point the most dangerous enemy of the Amharas is the TPLF servitors like Mekonnen in which all the Amharas should be vigilant.

Mekonnen’s utterance is preposterous and has no a substance regarding the people of Welkait identity. I boldly want to tell to Mekonnen Weldegebriel that killing and detaining the people of Gondar to fulfill the interest of the TPLF, cannot mute the struggles of the people of Gondar; it can more intensify them rather than. It is unlikely, Mekonnen can live life happy till TPLF is alive, but Mekonnen cannot wear-down the identity of Welkait by attrition.

    TO: Kaleab Tessema,

    Thank you so much for the great article you wrote about the Weldegegriel , he did not know about Gonder history. We are Welkait’s people know ourselves, no one can tell us.
    We never called ourselves from Tigray because we are not from them at all. We are belong to Gonder. We are Amhara. Weldegegriel cannot tell me I am from Tigray. He is useless, no knowledge, no wisdom.
    He can learn from this week what happed at Gonder. People came from around the Gonder Woredas, areas showed up with mighty, powerful- people and protected their leaders, and people. The peoples are very powerful and very strong history can tell.
    We will do in peace was if they want peace, otherwise we will take action until the end.
    It was very sad in Gonder what they did.
    According to Mr. Obang Metho executive director of the SMNE. FOR NO ONE IS FREE UNILL ALL ARE FREE. I strongly, believe we all must be freed, not some people, or few people, All people must free to live in peace was.I am following the destruction of Gonder City. People will win. FOR GET ABOUT THE USELESS Weldegregriel.

    Again, thank you for the information

    Hello Dr. Tom,

    I was thinking of writing my appreciation the same thing you wrote to Kaleab Tessema, and you beat me to it! I wish the TPLF’s agent, Weldegebriel read the article written by Kaleab Tessema. I agree with your rebuttal that the Tigray people liberation front went to the bush against Amara and the Amharas should have alrted from the beginning. As soon as the TPLF controlled Addis Ababa, the day one, the Woyane cadres started killing the native people of Welkait, and brought their own people from Mekele to settle on the Amaras land. If the TPLF could eliminate the Amara, they would be happy, but they could not eliminate the Amara. The TPLF forgot that the Amara is one of the large segment in the country. This time TPLF got the power and is trying to destroy the Amara people which is true that. The Woyane is having good time now in Ethiopia but we believe or not, it is not going to be long, it will end soon or later. We have to stand strongly behind the Welkait people, and the people of Gondar are detenined to fight this brutal regime. It is true, right now the Gondare is fight to take back their land from TPLF. In general, the article written by Kaleab is a good message for the TPLF angents.

    Thank you so much Tizita,

    I agree 100% with you, what they did in the past and present, and it is recorded. Few days a

    go, I called Gonder and I talked with my dad and he told me it was very bad. My family lives

    in Gonder. Tizita, even the useless Weldegebriel did not read this article written by Mr.

    Kaleab. He saw what the Gonder people did around the city and around the Gonder towns.

    The current government of Ethiopia should solve this matter long time a go but they did not

    even now it is not too late if the government wants to listen to the people needs. It is better to solve the problems before getting worse. Let’s the people have their lands. Sit and talk with

    the people find the cause and solve it immediately. Good leader (s) listens to his people

    needs this is more important. If people want a change then the leader must go. The wise

    leader listens to his people but the foolish leader kill and send to the jail, prisons.

    Again, than you for your response

    Absolutely you are right! If the regime was a good leader, it could listen its own people instead of killing and throw to jail. It is a matter of time, whither we believe it or not, the TPLF will go by any means. Look at the heroic people of Gondar are showing their determinant to envict from Welkait this expanist force. There is no doubt that the TPLF will take its turn to cry. Now the TPLF got military, money and securities to run the country by force, but the TPLF will pay the price.

    Thank you for your response too!

    Am happy that there are people you know themselves and their identity. Those who sold theirs cannot speak for others

    Hi Tizita,

    Thank you, and it is true because they did not care about the people’s concerns at all, only they do is for their benefits, for few people. As we know the TPLF is not good for Ethiopia units, look before 25 years a go we never had an issues with Tigray, or with other people but now we have millions of problems because of the TPLF.

    TPLF, deceived many peoples by going around Ethiopian cities, towns, preaching the wrong messages. The hidden agenda known by few people but now all Ethiopians know the hidden agenda. The issues must solved if the government wants to stay in their power, silent is band, the government must-should stand with the people. If not people should-must stand- for their freedom because no choice, what can you do? If the government is very wise, and smart can work with people, at this time I did not see any things. So, units is important to take actions.

    Thanks, Tizita.

    Hello, Gubena.

    I agree with you, Gubena, some people loves money, and power and they are silent even they know it is wrong. No moral, no values, no dignity. When they die they will take all money, and power to the grave with them. Oh, everything’s are useless, born without clothes and going without clothes to the grave.

    Keeping dignity is important.
