An Oromo achieved great victories from the first day because of its
great principles. That is why it was welcomed warmly. Humanity at that
time was suffering from psychological and moral laceration. It ignored
the value s of ethics and life. It was in urgent need of a discipline
that might salvage it from corruption and chaos ;that might save it
from the bondage of man to the bondage of God that might carry it over
from darkness in to light , thus life would be ordered according to
its nature . When Oromo appeared on the lands of our great Meda
Wollabu,the thirsty found what quench(satisfy) their thirsty for
equality ,justice ,generosity ,tolerance and forbearance(mercy).It was
Oromo Who introduce an integral discipline which fixed the relations
between the individual and his society, between ruler and ruled. It
laid the foundations of transactions, in money and economics, in war
and peace. In addition, it showed the boundaries of rights and duties,
arranged for the family and how it could be built and the relations of
its members with each other. He (Jaaraa) also taught the people the
details of worshipping waaqaa(Allah),what waaqaa’s dues in their
necks. This is the secret that enabled Oromo to spread.
History and eye witnesses relates, that the call to Geda System , at
that time and at this time ,met with many trials, crises and plots
that cannot be numbered(figured).It witnesses also that the Oromo and
his family underwent many catastrophes in glorified Oromia until this
When the daggers’ injuries to the Oromo reaches their summit
(peak),ABO permitted his Oromo and his family to defeated to Oromia
land and Oromo people.
There they have their unique regime which was administrated by Gedaa
System . The Oromo and the families living in Oromia both supported
their Gedaa System in building up that order, and fortifying it.
Yet an Oromo is open to three(3) dangers.
First ,the Hypocrites ,who are not to be found in an Oromia . There
,Oromo was weak, while hypocrisy needs two equal powers to appear. Non
–Oromo in an Oromia who knows the languages and culture.
Moving to Oromia was /is enough to make enemies to succeed. So it was
/is exposed to the danger of the Hypocrites of its own.
Hypocrisy , as I mentioned before , needed two equal powers to appear,
Or, say it needed the opposite party which competes for power. Hence,
we notice in Oromia the appearance of a group with stranger qualities
: cunning ,hatred ,false attitudes , daggers in the back, changing
sides with Oromo who prevails, using him to gain temporary benefits.
The head of the Hypocrites was Aba Dula Gemeda who played a big part
trying to demolish Oromo after coming in to Oromia. He was well known
there. Its inhabitants confessed his leadership after Oromo battle I’e
when the do shame up on Oromo boys those fight Derg with them. Bothe
tribes ,an Oromo and Somali denied even other authority over them
except that of OPDO (OPDO permit) ,so OPDO felt that TPLF’s coming in
to Oromia was threat and OPDO power would not last, but was dispersing
through Woyyaane fingers.
After TPLF understand ,through war it is impossible to colonize ,Oromo
,So Meles approach to Oromo under guise ,while he kept secret his deep
hatred to Oromo and its people. Biographies and histories are full of
what he did, for example he and his followers accused of the Oromo
massacres and the massive slaughter of Arbagugu and Asako ,Badano
Chole Maanya ….. etc .
They also (Oromo) plotted to get rid of Woyyaane (TPLF) ,……..
The statue which woyyaane /OPDO built was/is/will a symbol of their
bad intention ,because , they meant to devastate Oromo and its economy
and moral only. The deeds of the hypocrites are written down in the
books of histories.
The second danger to which Oromo was exposed come from the religious,
that divide an Oromo in to Muslim, Protestant ,Orthodox and
Waqqeffaata .Every government at its coming in to an Oromia ,had
signed a treaty of religious interrupt in to government ,government
do not interrupt in to religious.
After the colonization ,the population of Oromia become three
categories , Islam , (Protestant and Orthodox) and Waqqeffaata.
