Bitootessa/March 1, 2014
According to the official of the All-Neftegna chauvinist organization (listen to the interview on VOA below), Menelik II’s Aannole Genocide never happened, meaning, the victims and descendants of Aannole, Calanqoo and Gulele were liars who made up the massacres of Menelik II.
Though the Aannole Statue and Museum is not the first one to be built for the crimes against humanity committed by the lunatic Neftegna’s (mostly Shoan Menze/Ankober Menelikian elites) over a period of 100 years up until 1991, the lunatic Neftegna elites have found the opportunity to unload their centuries-old hate on the Oromo people this time around with their coordinated attacks on the Oromo nation.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that the Horn of Africa is full of monuments erected over the last two decades to commemorate the victims of the lunatic Neftegna’s of the 20th century. As an example, take a look at the following composite photos of monuments erected in different parts of the Horn of Africa to memorialize the crimes of the lunatic Neftegna’s. Of course missing from the composite photos are atrocities committed by the Ankober elites on individuals, such as the murders of the Gojame Amhara hero Belay Zeleke, the Wollo King Mikael (Ras Ali), the Wollayita King Tona, the Gondere Ras Gugsa Wolle, and others. The Shoan Ankober elites, head by Menelik II and later by Haile-Selassie, massacred and brutally eliminated peoples and individuals who stood against their colonizing and tyrannical army.
