Repression is back

Government security operatives warned the owner of Lucy Printing Press here in Addis Ababa not to publish a book written CUD council member Tamrat Tarekegn. Tamrat was released from Kaliti prison not long ago.

Meanwhile, book vendors in Addis Ababa are now banned from selling Brehanu Nega's book. Yenetsanet Goh Siked was republished after Brehanu's release from prison.

I support burning Berhanu's book.Berhanu is the main reason Kinijit is in a mess now. Instead of getting together to lobby Congress, DR Berhanu tries a coup. NO Congressman who wants to help Ethiopia will meet with any of them now. Only the ones who want to help Woyanne. Berhanu is dumb. Really Dumb. He lost credibility with Ethiopians and will forever be remembered as Lidetu Junior.

Banning Brhanu’s book is one indication that WOYANE is ready to eat the Doctor alive upon his return. Watch!!

As the saying goes, "You reap what you sow". Woyanne and Brehanu are cut from same cloth, so there is no surprise there. Intrigue and conspiracy is the hallmark of their existance.

The snake Berhanu who openly conducted a coup d'├ętat inside Kinijit leadreship, deserves to be banned by the Kinjit constituency inside Ethiopia and outside.

Dear EZ, the feudals and eprp's are really venomed with a deep evil, look there is no one commenting on the other two but only on the hero, a man of exceptional quality. Way Way he is a break through of not only Ethiopia but also the globe, avery globalized, eloquent, determined, accomodative etc Man of Mans!!!!! Mush wuredu engidih, we the millions will defend him, Mr. Devil, either a woyane firifari lekami or a moron feudal go away with your night mare. You won't waste your time here, had you known what Dr. Berhanu is dynamically doing every other second. He is a man at the wrong time and place but for sure a modern civilized Tewodros !!!

I don't know why Weyane bans that book. I have seen it myself, but didn't finish it. There is nothing special about that book. It is a repeat of what most people knew or heard about.

Weyanes are a bunch of fool guys. By banning the book, they are making it as if it is something that everybody must read. And so, people will read it. It will be passed hand to hand and be read. People will talk about it. That is a free publicity. While reading, people will try to give meanings to words and phrases Berhanu had not thought about. They will look for codes and secrets that do not exist. It is like creating a world of speculation.

By banning the book, they are also making Berhanu to feel a know-all Messiah to save the country. If you closely follow his recent speaches, you will surely sense that he has begun to be sure about himself. He talks, walks and eats as a prime minister in waiting. Somebody should tell him that he has a long way to go.

One thing I didn't like about him is he looks like a bully. It may be an image problem, but I suggest that he loses weight. I think he eats too much Ketfo.

Berhanu Nega is childish, and he cannot even understand basic curtusy let alone to lead 70 million people. He is power monger and deserves nothing but a kick in the butt.

VIVA Dr Berhanu & VIVA EZ - Dr BERHANU - You are simply a man of extraordinary skills, talent, wisdom and integrity - You are simply what th Doctor prescribed for the country sick of the Woyane disease. The woyane garbage we are witnessing above is a testament to your courage and vision. You have won the heart and minds of ALL ETHIOPIANS from all ethnic backgrounds. I for one, a proud Oromo and proud Ethiopian embrace your leadership. Don't let the dirt thrown your way by WOYANE OR the yesteryear EPRP and DERGUE cadres. YOU ARE THE PROMISE OF TOMORROWS ETHIOPIA - Genuine democrats will walk with you the distance! I also admire Professor Mesfin for his forsight in making himself only as ADVISOR. I hope some of our leaders also learn from his example!

First, I don't feel sorry for Dr. Birhanu. He is getting a taste of his own medicine. He alligned himself with vagabondish feudalist and now they are about to call him LISTIRO. They will. It has already started. All the the talk is about his money scheming thievery, a subtle reminder to his Gurage lineage. The Chauvinist will not allow him to lead. Simple and plain. Why tip toe around it. Again, I don't feel sorry for him. The UGLY that he created is coming to bite him and he can't stop it. True colors are showing. Oh Birhanu, it isn't the Tigrayan factor this time that unites them. It is your Gurageness or Should I say your non-Amara status. Don't you know that they feel you don't have the Pedigre. You are a son of a hard working Ethiopian. For the Feudalistic Core, that is a liability. That is the crust of the issue. Tip toeing around it will not help you. The Old Guard Amara v. Gurage and other modern Ethiopians. Round 1 goes to the Gurages, but the old Guard is coming back with a swing, with an interview on Tensae that basically declared war. Stay Tuned....KINIJIT IS DEAD. HAGOS PREDICTED AND SO SHALL IT BE.

If we are looking for a convinced democrat , with integrity and without hatred, then Berhanu Nega is the best choice for emama ethiopia's cry for democracy.
Dr Berhanu's book, which is the book of the decade, is a must read book.
He wrote it very clearly who is who.

We will take side with convinced democrats. No neutrality in choosing between feudal totalitarian party rule and open, democratic party priciples.
Chairman with a status of a king is unacceptable. No transition from King Meles to King Hailu.
Emama ethiopia deserves democracy and Kinijit must be that party to deliver democracy.

I do not think we should be surprised. If we assume that Woyane is changed because it released the political prisoners put under custody for its reality show that went on nearly two years, we are wrong. It seems that the show has achieved the intended goal of defocusing the public from the major issue of vote rigging. It reached its climax when the kangaroo court sentences them to death and when the whole world shouted: do not kill them, amnesty, amnesty, amnesty etc…. Woyane is comfortable and now we are giving him more comfort by disagreeing and falling apart. Stop the gossip and work to unite our leaders. Let all of us hold hour hands together and stand firm. Then all our enemies and friends alike will respect us. It is only when we free our country from dictators( woyane) that we say we are free.

DID NOT I TELL YOU STORY

Is it a chance or is it a dirty deal with the DEVIL

The leader of TPLF wyoyane coming to the US while Ledetu,Merrara Gudina,Beyene Petros and Berhanu Nega lead delegate are in the US smells Bad.

The Great grand generation of Yohanes Melese/TPLF after putting Ethiopia back to precolonial state and dividing and posioning peace loving and tolerant people Ethiopia is here in new york.

Is this a pre planed TPLF Memagles deal with Brehanu Nega cupe detant to prolonge Ethiopian misfortune by prolonging the life of a killer who is going to be tried at human right tribunal for civilina massacure .

Rememmber the whole TPLF structure is resposivel for selling the country territory,masaccre of inocent civilinan ,detention and disapperance of milllions.

We will wait and see
