To Melania Trump, First Lady of the United States of America

Dear Mrs. Trump:

Melania Trump, First Lady of the United States of America

With due respect to your support for expanding business enterprises in my native Ethiopia, I would like to bring to your timely attention the life of those Ethiopian girls abducted by an ethnic extremist radical group in the western part of Ethiopia at Demibidolo.

I write to you with a deep concern for those abducted girls, as a father of two girls myself, and appealing to your maternal instincts in such a crisis.

The new Ethiopian government is progressing with many dynamic changes to foster unity in that nation troubled by successive oppressive regimes for the last five decades. I have been a victim myself: Taken from the street during the time of the emperor, jailed at age 14, tortured and jailed by the military junta regime, and harassed and exiled during the tribal regime of TPLF. I went back to my native country recently and observed a few changes as well as a lot of destructive, hateful politics by those politicians who never wish to learn from former Yugoslavia or Rwanda.

The abductors of the girls are extremists whose ideology is to separate people by ethnicity or race. I myself am composed of three ethnicities and prefer not to be classified into one single ethnic group. The same is true of many millions in Ethiopia, and all over the world, who are a mix of more than one ethnic group or race.

On behalf of those suffering mothers who shed tears day and night for the last two months, I appeal for your intervention on their behalf to the Ethiopian government. This regime does not give any valid response or take action nationwide, including the regional Oromia state, where a massive army recruitment effort recently emerged as a rival to others where they cannot abide by the rule of law to safeguard citizens, especially those young students from a specific ethnic group.

I appreciate any steps you can take on behalf of these Ethiopian girls.

Sincerely,

Chaplain Eddie Mekasha,

Ethiopian American Community leader and editor

  1. Dear victim

    Are you appeasing MR President to intervene in the case of your family member or trying to build your asylum case in uS. I mean trying to politize this incident for economic gain of moving to USlike girls abducting in Nigeria.. However, we have many people at home who suffer from this ethinic based political chaos. We lost many precious people murdered by Amhara and Oromo extremists. I wonder why Ethiopia is not in the ban list while eritrea is in the Ban list .

    Ladies in Somalia region was also killed, raped, and severly stabbed leavinga black scar both in thier mind and body.

    Thank you

  2. IN THE YEAR 2016 SIX MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS ($6.5 MILLION USD DOLLARS) LAWSUIT SETTLEMENT WAS PAID TO ALL USA RESIDENTS THAT BOUGHT THE GERD DAM BOND , MEANING NOONE IN USA IS ENTITLED TO ASK ANYMORE MONEY FROM THE ETHIOPIAN GOVERNMENT FOR PURCHASING THE GERM DAM BOND , THAT’S WHY DC USA SCHOLAR DIASPORAS ARE THE ONLY IDEAL PEOPLE TO HOLD IMPARTIAL DISCUSSION IN REGARDS TO THE GERD DAM .

    ETHIOPIA TO REFUND $6.5M IT RAISED IN A DIASPORA BOND IN THE U.S. – MOGULDOM

  3. To give it more weight it would be GOOd to post a video interview of parents whoes children have bern abducted. Posting photos of the supposedely abducted students and a couple of pictures of that of their supposed parents only is not convincing.

  4. Bigots message
    My objective is not to pass this message solely for amharas but to help innocent non amharas to take notice of this message and its unpredictable consequences.

    Fano , አማራ ፋኖ !, is now dessiminating message I copied here below . They are intimidating innocent people , children, women and elders who are non-amharas. These people donot have the slightest clue on how the abducted students were taken and lived . It is a complete crime to browbeat innocent people for the heinious act conducted by politically motivated people.

    Here it is :ከአማራ ፋኖ የተላለፈ መግለጫ️

    ይህንን ሼር አድርጎ የማይፈፅም አማራ: አማራ ነኝ የማለት ሞራል የለውም፡፡

    ከማክሰኞ 19/05/2012 ጀምሮ በመላው አማራ መሬት አንቀጥቅጥ የተቃውሞ ማዕበል ተጠርቷል፡፡

    ጥር 19 ሰልፍ ይካሄዳል። ካልተለቀቁስ??
