Journalist Abdi Fite Raises Questions for Abbaa-Duulaa:
OMN Journalists Discuss Abbaa-Duulaa’s Tigrean-Sanctioned Trip to Little Oromia:
OPDO’s Abbaa-Duulaa Gammadaa came to Minnesota (also known as ‘Little Oromia’ for having the largest population of Oromos in North America) on an official trip sanctioned by Tigrean/TPLF officials from Mekelle (who know control the power at the Arat Kilo Palace in Finfinne) on January 30, 2015.
Abbaa-Duulaa Gammadaa’s trip was filled with controversies. At his unannounced arrival at the airport, he was received by members of the Ogadeni Community in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Tigrean/TPLF Embassy at Washington-DC worked hard to keep Abbaa-Duulaa Gammadaa’s arrival at the Minneapolis airport secret in order to avoid a huge protest rally by members of the Oromo Community – whose sons, daughters, fathers, mothers … were imprisoned, disappeared or even killed by the orders of the Tigrean/TPLF regime.
Just a little more than six months ago, more than a hundred nonviolent (peaceful) Oromo protesters were gunned down by the Tigrean elite killing squad called Agazi for opposing the Tigrean Master Plan for Addis Ababa – a Master Plan that is designed to displace Oromo farmers around Addis Ababa (Finfinne) and give the land to Tigrean and other Habesha investors (new/neo-Neftegna’s).
No one – not a single person – has been brought to justice to answer the killings of more than a hundred peaceful Oromo youth, elders – students, mothers and fathers. As a Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, OPDO’s Abbaa-Duulaa Gammadaa could have used his power to set up a federal committee to investigate the mass killings of more than a hundred Oromo students and other civilians. However, Abbaa-Duulaa Gammadaa has never done that, instead, he was sent by the Tigrean/TPLF regime to tarnish the image of the peaceful protesters as “violent robbers.” What’s more, after having slaughtered more than a hundred Oromos, TPLF has not stopped the Tigrean’s Addis Ababa Master Plan of displacing Oromo farmers in order to give out the land to Tigrean and other Habesha investors (new/neo-Neftegna’s). OPDO continues to say nothing to stop the Tigrean’s evil agenda of physical and cultural genocide against Oromos in Central Oromia, especially, around the Finfinne areas.
Mr. Abbaa-Duulaa Gammadaa, the following videos were recorded live as TPLF’s Tigrean elite killing squad – the Agazi – was slaughtering Oromos in Ambo on April 30, 2014, and the other two were from Mendi and Madda-Walaabuu University shootings. The civilians slaughtered by the Tigrean elite killing squad – the Agazi – were not “violent robbers” – they were students and other civilians. Justice will be delivered by the Oromo people soon over these mass slaughtering of innocent civilians. Where will OPDO stand at that crucial time – with the TPLF’s Tigrean elite killing squad – the Agazi – again, or with the Oromo people? When will OPDO stop TPLF’s “5-Year Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP)” that continues to evict Oromo farmers to give the land to Tigrean and other Habesha investors (new/neo-Neftegna’s) under the disguise of “poverty eradication and development”? Conscious OPDO members must ask themselves these questions before it’s too late and play their historic role of crushing the aggression of Habeshas/neo-Neftegnas in Oromia.
