BREAKING NEWS Sebhat Nega wants to return to TPLF Executive Politburo

Filed under: News |

Removed from the politburo of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) in 2010, Sebhat Nega still holds hopes of once again heading the party he helped to found.


Sebhat Nega

Despite his advancing years and his ousting from the top of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF, mainstay of the coalition ruling Ethiopia) and from EFFORT (the holding company for TPLF companies), Sebhat Nega is keen to go beyond his current post of executive director of the pro-government Ethiopian International Institute for Peace and Development (EIIPD). An old hand in the TPLF who has long been in dispute with Azeb Mesfin, the widow of the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, he is still making his presence felt behind the political scenes.

While on a tour of the Tigray Regional State in early May to sound out the local TPLF leaders, managers and activists, Sebhat Nega hit the headlines when he agreed with those present at a meeting denouncing corruption, nepotism and iniquity of the TPLF regime. He then immediately toned down his criticisms, stating “we must join together to solve these problems”.
Interviewed about the TPLF’s record on the German radio station Deutsche Welle in the Amharic language a few days ago, Sebhat Nega defended the party’s policies over the 23 years it has been in power since 1991. He justified sidelining the pan-Ethiopian organisations in the Transitional Conference of the time. Nevertheless, he then stated he was prepared to launch a campaign himself to reconcile with these political groups.

  2. Sibhat Nega wants to get on Tplf politbureau to gain more power to continue his campaign of crime on Ethiopia which he regards as an enemy.

    Sebehat nega said in an interview some time ago that he will engage the enemy, Ethiopia by siding with shabia.

    Read the following:

    “We fought for Eritrean independence from the colonial rule of Ethiopia. Even now, if Eritrea is attacked, TPLF/EPRDF would jump into Eritrea, join the Eritrean people and engage the enemy.” – Sebhat Nega on Radio Woyane

  4. My friend Journalist,

    Why is is a breaking news? I did not seen new news and emergency situation here. The Ajuza Sibhat is there since the inception of the terrorist, vagabond, looters, arrogant, rebell, bragger, rude, rapers, fascist, secessionist, racist, human right violators, anti democracy, murderer, killer, thieves,…etc TPLFs and their supporters. Who cares about this damn old man with his rotten brain cells becomes a polit bureau or a chairman of TPLF. I do not care! What I care is the Ethiopian people excluding Woyanes and puppets to decide their fate and destiny. Not Sibhat CHOMA , AKAFA, DINGAY , MEJ RAS to determine their fate. You better beleve and have 100& confidence on the power of the people than rotten head of TPLFs conspirator. He is no more politicians. He is a looter and alcohol addicted, looter, thieves, atheist, womenizer and heavy user of Viagra and other sex addicted pills. He has no formal education and skills of how to lead and what leadership means in the scientific meaning. He is MAJIRAT MECHI, and WEROBELA old man. He is SID ADEG and ABORE AFE. His brain is very close to his un discipilined lip. Never learnt something in his age time. WORADA SHIMAGILE! one slap is enough for him under normal condition. አንድ ሃሙስ የቀረው ዓይን አውጣ ባለጌ ሽርሙጣ ልቅ አፍ ወራዳ ሽማግሌ

  5. Getaw, Wetalh Tesadbhe? I do not see the merit of this man Zehabesha. He come back means more trouble for Ethiopia. He is against Ethiopia. He has argued many times Ethiopia has no right to access to the sea. Last time they asked him at Sinit Radio Tigrignea .

    Radio Sinit: Aboy Sibhat, how can you landlock 90 million people?

    Aboy Sibhat: Why not? what is wrong if 90 million people get landlocked?

    Radio Sinit: Many Ethiopians feel they are unfairly landlocked ?

    Aboy Sibhat: Ethiopia has no right or never had a port and it must be landlocked.

    A man with such ugly and weird beliefs must not be a leader and I do not know what he wanted from the Ethiopian people this time. He has worked hard against the country so far and without any remorse and with any shame and without any regret. I , as a person I am not even interested to listen to what he says because I find him very arrogant and ignorant who walk on the people of Ethiopia. He beliefs he has some sort of privilege to ride on the people of Ethiopia? Anyway, we are tired now of him and others who have landlocked our country and imported policy written in the white house. He said he fought for freedom, but he ended up importing policy package SAP from the white house in the past 22 years. He has robbed the Ethiopians people even the right they have had. Ethiopians have lost even the right to use their local seed. He has forced them in the past 22 years to use genetically engineered American seed imported with fertilizer? What does Ato or Aboy Sibhat want from the poor people of Ethiopia? He better retire and stay away from making more mess. He has done enough damage.
    1. Land-locking Ethiopia
    2. Destroying Ethiopian local seed and gene bank and replacing with USA genetically engineered seed and gene bank.

    Dear Aboy, we do not want even to hear your voice because you are anti-Ethiopia. You are a burden to the Ethiopian people. You have been blaming Haileslassie, but you Emperor Sibhat you are perhaps worse. Enough is enough Aboy and I suggest you take a break instead of playing with peoples lives. We have had you enough. You started bloody war that made us refugees and consumed the lives of our people for you so called liberation. But you ended up forcing us to be landlocked and to buy ports from Sudan, Kenya, Somalia, Djibouti and even to make worse, you denied Ethiopians to use their local seed bank and gene bank, and you forced them to buy American seed and gene bank? I do not know what else you wanted to do with the people? you have used us already as game animals, is that not enough Sir? How many youth perished because of your bloody rebellion? how much national resources were wasted? how long time have been wasted? how much did Ethiopia go backward because of your protracted bloody war? what did you bring after that? landlocking? Seed importing from America? Fertilizer importing from America? dividing land on the basis of race or ethnic or tribe? what else do you want Sir? please give us a break Sir? You have destroyed our lives in the name of liberation and yet you kept on forcing us to be landlocked? Who gave you all these right Sir?

  6. Sebhat, Nega “denouncing corruption?”. What about the so called “effort’? I thought he was the face of corruption in that country. Is he denouncing himself? Ha ha ha! These days, in our country, we are producing hypocrites. We have a lot of them, and they dragging our country into the abyss.

  10. Shame on the habesha adimin for the unilateral biased and undemocratiic manupulation of public comments. where is my comment?

  11. This individual is like a root of cancer. He lived long richly”hulu bege hulu bedege”without fear looking down at the mass like his slaves, that era of feudalism and facisim is coming to an end the mass is saying enough is enough. The root must be pulled out. It is un natural and destructive to install an infectous thing rather should be discarded. God bless our beloved country and people.

  12. Madamme, Yeabsira,

    Your name should be changed to Sibhatsira. You do not deserve that respected name Yeabsira. Yeabsira is for those who know god is their creator not the damn muddle head Sibhat who drinks alcohol every day and use Viagra when he goes to bed to make sex with prostitutes just like you.

  13. ZeAbesha…thank you for your continued effort to disclose the secrets of TPLF. Having said this I would like to comment by saying that Sebhat Nega, the #1 enemy of Ethiopia, is not a person to worry about. He is on the verge of death. I wish he would get some time off his devilish activities and think of his long time record of crimes before heading to his grave.
