Ethiopia: Do Not Resuscitate  TPLF!!! – by Muluken Gebeyew

Ethiopians have suffered under TPLF (Tigray People’s Liberation Front) brutal regime for the last 27 years. From its inception, it was anti-unity, divisive, hate monger and self oriented opportunistic regime. TPLF has led anti democratic pathogenic policies  that denied Ethiopians fundamental human rights in their own country.  It has ruled Ethiopians through hate, fear, divide and rule policies. It has monopolised the economy, military, foreign affair, security and all sector of the society. It has killed, tortured, imprisoned, looted, destabilised large sector of Ethiopian society principally the Amahra and Oromo people.

TPLF doesn’t represent the Tigray people which itself comprise 6% of Ethiopian population. TPLF shields itself under Tigrean people skirt  as if  it’s legitimate representative. The majority Tigraeans in Tigray live under fear and double oppression. They are not allowed to say anything except supporting TPLF. Those who live in Ethiopia  (outside Tigray) and in Diaspora, most benefited from the system  and they defend TPLF’s merciless killings and brutal crackdown against Ethiopians. They make every effort by hook or crook to maintain TPLF’s rule.

TPLF destroyed all press, legitimate opposition parties and non governmental agencies which promote  personal, democratic right and good governance. TPLF used its rubber stamped parliament law for several years  to stifle any form of democratic exercise in the country  using its famous Anti-terrorist law/Proclamations. TPLF destroyed the justice system and used as its means for supression!

TPLF attempted to destroy the legitimate educational system  and formed  its own, generation killing curriculum. It has published  newly made history books which attempt to destroy Ethiopian independent, sovereign history and its heroes. Schools are used as propaganda field. Top brasses of TPLF and its accomplices’ use fake college degrees to cover their inferior complexity. They rooted out  real intellectuals  from all higher institutions  and made Education and its value cheap in Ethiopia.


TPLF  created a delusional federal system with puppets figure head while its operatives rule under iron fist. It continued its divide and rule policy by fermenting  and  waging war among different ethnicities, nationalities  and religious members. Its inflammatory polices have made Ethiopians displaced, homeless, dispossessed, unemployed and to flee from their country.

TPLF has implemented a confused economic policy that benefited its members and supporters against the majority Ethiopians. Its  newly created  millionaires and “upper class”  are based on false economy, favouritism, contraband and nepotism. The  majority of the peasants are under the mercy of TPLF. The Ethiopian  people are  denied of its historical land right.  At present all land belong to  TPLF.

EFFORT (Endowment Fund For Rehabilitation of Tigray), which is owned by  the few elites of TPLF top brass, controlled more than 70% of Ethiopian economy. It has looted the public property, public bank and run business as monopoly controlling the business field and  killing any competitions from other Ethiopians.

The artificial “growth” from data manipulation, few visible infrastructure development through borrowed finance, foreign  investors  are not sustainable as we witnessed an enraged oppressed people destroying it.

TPLF  is  exhausting all its dirty political tricks to survive longer ruling Ethiopians. It has mobilized all the finance and resources  it looted from Ethiopians to galvanise its security services, Agazi “killing machine” army, propaganda outlets and mercenary agitators.

TPLF’s propaganda outlets in Ethiopia and overseas are drumming day and night false information, confusion, disinformation, exaggeration  in a manner typical of disturbed psychotic  patient  with  disorganised thoughts, pressure of speech, grandiose and paranoid delusions. The culprits, mostly paid mercenaries continue the  futile attempt to dampen the struggle of the Ethiopian People against TPLF. Their aim is as usual to create division among ourselves not to unite against the regime. We need to be aware from past mistakes! It has shown recently   a non genuine  gestures to confuse us by releasing political prisoners. This should not be the booby trap to hold us back. We need to continue and intensify  the peaceful struggle until it is down.

The regime’s  final  means to survive long and  to dampen the struggle  is  State of Emergency, which it  declared once again recently. This is further to intensify its brutal suppression  and engage in  killing spree. There are palpable lies coming out from its propaganda outlets.  There are numerous pseudo promises emerging  out from the regime to calm down the heat it is feeling. TPLF is known for  lying and breaking promises. The phantom promises are just to buy time, then to lead  its brutal regime and darkness. The only guarantee for the  freedom  is to get rid of TPLF.

Ethiopia is at cross road. The suffering of Ethiopian people spill out of the cup.

The siege for the last 27 years is to be broken. The cloud of fear, disunity and suspicion among Ethiopians is to clear.  The smell of freedom is on air. A new nation of freedom and equality  is closer.  Ethiopians of all walk of life have to finish the job.

We have  a challenging road which is  full of obstacle which we have to clean. The poison that would be left by TPLF  would take time to detoxify. The paranoia and false identity it created among different nationalities need proper handling and therapy. National reconciliation among Ethiopians is a must to start  the journey for democratic and compassionate Ethiopia. The pathogenic policies of TPLF should be eradicated  in the New Ethiopia.

TPLF is like a malignant  cancer. Unless completely removed, it will  continue to harm and bleed Ethiopians. TPLF  is irreparable. Any cosmetics will not cover its big scars. Its members and supporters  have to abandon it to live in peaceful Ethiopia for themselves and their children.

TPLF is currently wounded and it is on death bed gasping for air, it is using emergency oxygen called State  of Emergency. It is on last oxygen tank.  Even at its bed, it is not willing for peaceful transition and reconciliation. It  is in grandiose and paranoid delusion of  power.  It has no insight of the Ethiopian people sufferings and quest for freedom.

The Ethiopian people should unit, work together in partnership  to continue and intensify the struggle against the TPLF regime to finish the job. TPLF is on cliff edge. A popular well organised and united push from Ethiopians of different nationalities, faiths, educational status, ability, income, gender and  age  will bring the demise of TPLF.

Do not resuscitate  the dying TPLF regime!

  1. Muluken, good point.

    But TPLF is going to revive itself through Demeke Mekonen as the next PM of Ethiopia. Ethiopia is going to entertain dagmawi Hailemariam soon. This guy, Demeke Mekonen, is one that signed away Amara land to Sudan, Wolkait-tegede to TPLF. He never voiced when Amaras were massacred, tortured and imprisoned.

    The revolution Team Lemmma and Gedu embarked is at risk. TPLF’s new strategy is to support Demeke for PM position to weaken the OPDO momentum. TPLF would like to get someone from the south but it wories from that fact that it will be politically suicidal because that will lead to a strong cooperation between ANDM and OPDO. So their best bet it to find someone that is opportunist and coward. Demeke fits this criteria very well.He is a good servant to Bereket Simon, Addisu Legesse and the TPLF henchmen.

  2. What is this news I hear now that Obbo Merera and his fellow former detainee Obbo Bekele are detained again? The historic and legitimate protest by the gallant youths of Oromos, Amharas and many in the Southern regions shall not back down whether these two patriotic countrymen are detained or not. But when you come to think of it, what do you expect from Marxist zealots-turned ‘entrepreneurs and democratic centralist’ despots? Sickening, just sickening!!!!
