“I want to write so that the reader… can say, ‘You know, that’s the truth. I wasn’t there, and …but that’s the truth.’”,

Maya Angelou Critic’s note: The critical analysis contains “competing nouns”. Thus, for clarity and specificity, I used a person or a thing name repeatedly instead of a pronoun. The images in this analysis were adapted from Google Images. Reading Ato Nesibu Sebhat’s book titled “ፍጹምነ ውእምነ ቴ” bugged me so much because its stories are incoherent with his situation that he was a detainee, and some of his dishonestly presented stories are personal to me. Hence, I objectively and critically analyzed his assertions concerning the Higher-15’s detention camp’s reign of terror in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia .…..Read More……

  1. I am deeply worried about our unfortunate culture of rejection and non appreciation spirit for very good task done by our fellow native Ethiopinas.
    I am survival of torture at one of the concentration camps and at the main orison Kerchele.I met Kefelegn the brutal killer who was arrested by the great coordination of people like Sebhat. There were many adventure seeking people at the EPRP and no body complied the story like Sebehat. Regarding plagiarism, I could not say he did it as the activities of EPRP was shared by many at various levls including Sebhatu.All the stories Sebhat mentioned were real at those 25 concentration camps of Addis Ababa and at other provinces at the most infamous time of Red Terror.
    Please, come out of jealously criticism and character assassination and put forward all the human crime against our people by those regimes in Ethiopia including the current one that we have to focus more.

    • Moretew,

      It seemed that you missed the whole point. What the author of the article is saying is that although Sebhat didn’t see the situations he wrote it as he saw it by his own eyes. The crimes committed were real and cruel. There is no doubt about that. I think what the person who wrote the article is saying is Sebhat didn’t see it; he did a wonderful job

      I think our culture gets messed up because of people like Sebhat.

    • Degone,

      You are mistaken because Sebhat ain’t contribute anything for the arrest of Kefelegin. If he told you that, he hoodwinked you. Or you let him duped you.

      LJDemissie proved the stories of Nesibu Sebhat’s are false. What part of the story you didn’t understand? What evidence do you have to disprove him? If you have evidence, disprove her/him to contribute for the discussion.

  2. I do not see any creative work from EPRP other than destruction !
    Cretive work is always associated with science and innovation. Killings of brothers and sisters are not creative works

  3. Who cares what he wrote or not. In both cases it is useless in fighting fascist TPLF.

  6. It sounds to me a personal grudge or issue than a genuine critic.EPRP the partythe is made of its members.The members avemembers every right to express themselves as they see fit.The fact this guy used the phrase ” ፍፁም ነው እምነቴ” for example doesn’t necessarily make it plagerism.If every authour used this critics criteria, there wouldn’t be any books written. Bottom line, there seems be more to this critic than meets the eye.

  8. I wish the Article writer articulates his take of the struggle years in stead of to slagging someone, who had given his account. Mind you, many of the kefetegna 15 ex-prisoners are still alive and their families have read the book, but there is not such bitter criticism that has been manifested in this Article. Civility is a virtue!
