Who Has Been Selflessly Working to Save Ethiopia, Abiyote Ahmed or Eskinder Nega?

By Belayneh Abate

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.

  2. Eskinder bacame a polititien, he has a lack of skill in politic. He don’t want to understand the complex of ethiopian politic. He should open his mind and think about the bad politic which has been done in ethiopia for the last 27 years by tplf. The TPLF has removed the identity of ethiopia from about 30 to 40 milons of people for its goal being independent country. Has Eskinder the capacity to heal this problem with his low skill? I doubt.

  3. Eskinder will fine. Christ: For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and everyone who humbles himself will be exalted. He will be released soon. So The dam is getting filled (Amharic). No, it’s just rain (English). How brilliant is that?

    So Belayneh Abate (Hagos), you’re sleep walking, but we (Ethiopia) is swinging.

    Just relax and enjoy the show. They will update you when they are ready.

    For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul? Jesus Christ. And know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time. A new command I give you: Love one another. Do not let your hearts be troubled. All my authority in heaven and on earth.

  5. Wether he is an idealist or reactionary depends which way you look at it. One person’s morning sunshine could be somebody else’s hangover. We can all agree he is anything but a journalists. He is an activist moored on holding to defunct traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics., which is fine. He wants ti adapt what is best in the past to the changing circumstances of the present. There is nothing wrong with that. He just needs to learn to respect the law like ever other citizen. There is no special rule only for him. Society does not work well that way.

  6. Abate very good article. Straight to the point no ramblings (i.e. professors Al). Like Zemedkun Bekele says ነጭ ነጭዋን ጥቁር ጥቁርዋን. What more is there to say to the Hodams and sellouts. Ethiopian doro is small compared to the huge ferenj doros but the ethiopian doro gives you the best taste as we all know. So its not how many words your article has but the content. Its not if you have a Dr. or PhD or Professor before or after your name it’s what comes out of your mouth. Thank you Abate

  7. አለም,

    I sympathize with you. The price of building Democracy (an elected government of the people for the people) is that the transition is often messy, which we are clearly witnessing in on the ground in Ethiopia, but once we pass this stage and the wind is behind our back will hopefully be sailing to peace, prosperity and tranquility ( (yield to originality of vision here wouldn’t be great to have 3 major parties called prosperity, peace and tranquility to counter and reject the ethnically affiliated backward thinking parties. When not properly understood freedom and Democracy leads to what we see with Eskinder and others It becomes a cultish devotion to Jackals by Jackasses.

  8. Eskinder Nega is a man of principle. He has always been advocating for the rights of all people and impartial treatment of all. He was exposing the maladministration of Mayor Takele Uma.and his favourable treatment towards Oromo. To a lesser degree of PM Abiy. It is to be remembered that Abiy said will go to war with Eskinderwhen Jawar was commiting all sorts of crimes.That is why it looks suspicious the detention of Eskinder &co. of Balderas Party. He may have organized people to defend themselves from Qeerroos. Since when has it become a crime to defend oneself? That is where the political game is. I believe with clear conscience that he has not commited any crime. It is simply a vendetta.

  9. Abiy Ahmed was so involved in international relations he didn’t want to be bothered with Oromos especial advantage issue everyday so Abiy Ahmed gave Takele Uma a blank check to disperse to Oromos but Takele Uma failed to accommodate Oromos fully because Eskinder kept disrupting Takele Uma repeatedly. Disrupting is punishable by law , Abiy Ahmed and Takele Uma showed mercy and let Eskinder go with warnings for close to two years, now it is time to be firm on Eskinder because he even went on to distribute weapons of destructions to Addis Ababa youth.

    Evidences against Reminder and the charges are beyond Abiy or Take to shpwe mercy to Eskimder as usual.

    Per the government’s news ETV or EBC:
    The Criminal charges against Eskinder are

    Charge 1. He was trying to divide people with ethnicity and. religion in Addis Ababa

    Charge 2. False terrorizing news Eskinder distributed brought the current chaos , the current violence and the current turmoil.

    Charge 3. Eskinder distributed weapons of destruction to Addis Ababa youth.

    Charge 4.Eskinder is responsible for the death of fourteen people in Addis Ababa during the recent attacks.

    Charge 5. Eskinder is responsible for the destruction of properties amounting to fifty five million Votes.

    Evasive, slippery, shifty contrast on either side a noble or a person who exploits circumstances like the calculating politician speaking out when it fits his benefits . Is that bravery and courage or expediency exploitation and Machiavellianism? There’s a difference between a person who exploits circumstances to gain immediate advantage rather than being guided by consistent principles or plans, and someone who seizes an opportunity. One with a lack of consideration for other people due to concern with one’s own personal profit or pleasure collecting the fruits of other people’s work, the other tactically assists to grow the roots. The latter can be an useful, the former will always be a parasite. That road is already hard enough why bolster a person who places expediency above principle?
