Eskinder Nega, when Christ was taken to the death chamber almost all his followers instantly betrayed him! May that God be with you at this time when many of us are betraying you siding with Pontus Pilate.

For thousands of years, Ethiopia was known for its depth of religious beliefs and strong national consciences. Unfortunately, its national conscience and religious beliefs are sinking deep as time goes on because of the opportunist intellectuals and religious leaders.

It is deeply regrettable to hear and watch some intellectuals considering Abiyote Ahmed as a savior angle and Eskinder Nega as destroyer agent of Ethiopia. As God, clean conscience, history, and the people know,  Abiyot Ahmed has been the loyal cadre and the spy chief of the Ethiopian People Democratic Front (EPRDF). EPRDF was established to force the  people live in ethnic barns,  harass and weaken Amara, and at the end destroy  Ethiopia.

Eskinder Nega has been fighting against the  retarded policies of EPRDF and destruction of Ethiopia for almost 30 years. During this period, he had been spied and incarcerated  many times by the spy agency Abiyote Ahmed used to lead.

Alarmed by the persistent struggle of the likes of Eskendir and the Ethiopian people at large, westerners removed the robber rulers of the TPLF and replaced them with Abiyote Ahmed and his cadre friends. By the eve of his ascension to power, Abiyote Ahmed fabricated a fake candy and he named it Ethiopia. Licking this fake candy with childish tongues, many gullible people start to worship him more than they worship God as a savior of Ethiopia.

While these gullible Ethiopians sing  the song  “our savior Abiy”, the ethnic division widens more than ever!  People get massacred and displaced even worse than the Legese Zenawi time. Amara genocide and burning of churches became the norm. False accusation and imprisonment continued and the MAN Eskinder Nega became again the usual and frequent victim.

Little has changed in Ethiopia! The criminals are still in power. The former cadres are still the current cadres. The former  jailers are still the jailers. The former prisoners are still the current prisoners.

Despite all these, the opportunist and immoral intellectuals are dancing with Abiyot Ahmed betraying the veteran Ethiopian fighter, Eskinder Nega. As usual, the conscienceless opportunist spit lame excuses. They yell it is OK to betray the imprisoned Eskinder Nega and stand with the jailer Abyote Ahmed to save Ethiopia.

Whether now or six thousand years ago, opportunists never had conscience to distinguish the right from the wrong. While Eskinder Nega was standing with the people and fighting relentlessly  to save Ethiopia for 30 years, Abiyot Ahmed was standing on the evil side of the isle and serving TPLF  to destroy Ethiopia.

Come on people? Sooner or later we all are mortal! Why this degree of opportunistic behavior? Why this degree of support for injustice? Why this degree of betrayal?  Where is your conscience? Where is your soul? Where is your moral standard? Where is your God?

Who has been selflessly working to save Ethiopia? Abiyote Ahmed or Eskinder Nega?

Eskinder Nega, when Christ was taken to the death chamber almost all his followers instantly betrayed him! May that God be with you at this time when many of us are betraying you siding with Pontus Pilate.
