OMN announced that Federal Police had arrested Jawar Mohammed on Tuesday.

The media, whose owner is Jawar Mohammed himself who was linked to the killings of 86 people in October 2019, claimed that there was a clash between the Federal Police and Oromia region Security forces, as reported by DW Amharic service on Tuesday.

However, OMN did not say details regarding casualties on both sides.  It claimed that Federal Police members had to get reinforcements to make the arrest.

Bekele Gerba, who is among the senior leadership of Oromo Federalist Party, is also arrested along with Jawar Mohammed. The location of their arrest is undisclosed. Jawar joined the political party last December the legality of which was questioned by the National Electoral Board of Ethiopia on grounds of Jawar’s U.S. citizenship.

The arrest came a day after prominent Ethiopian singer Hachalu Hundessa was assassinated in the capital Addis Ababa in the locality of Gelan Condominiums. Police said on Tuesday that he was killed after he got into his car.

However, Police did not disclose information about the identities of the killed although it has confirmed that it has arrested some suspects.

Hachalu was interviewed by OMN a few days before he was murdered, and there was apparent coordination on the part of those who plotted the killing to make his death appear as if it is linked to the remarks he made over the Emperor Menelik.

Oromia Regional State president, Shimeles Abdissa, said on Tuesday that the killing was an orchestrated one and was intended to bring about chaos in the country.

He pointed fingers to Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) leaders and other political forces who he said were hired mercenaries. Speaking with breaking voices out of grief, Shimeles also said that political entities that are combining peaceful and armed struggle are involved in the campaign to reverse the reform measures in the country.

Lencho Bati, a prominent Oromo activist, and politician who is said to work as an adviser to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government said the killing TPLF and Egypt are likely to be behind the killing. But it was executed through the agency of mercenaries hired from the Oromo community, he added.

Is this TPLF paving the civil war?

The singer was the most celebrated Oromo nationalist movement probably parallel to only Jawar Mohamed.

Queero leaders had blocked major roads including those connecting Jigjiga to harar. One of the Queero hardliners, vowed to kill Abiy like the way way Khaddaffi of libya died.

Ethiopia closed or border crossings to Sudan, Djibouti, Kenya and Eritrea. Foreign embassies including USA, Canada and Japan had advised their citizens to stay indoors and leave the country if possible.

It is offical.

All Oromo leaders arrested, including Daud Ibsa of Oromo libertaion Front, Bekele Garba , Hamza Borana and Jawar Mohamed.

The battle between Queero and Oromo Liyuu had started. I hope the Oromo youth will avoid the TPLF traps.

This could be a conspiracy but as a rationale man I woild say that Amxaaro Abey is  trying secure and eliminate his oromo counterparts.  Caabey sings diffirent tunes with diffirent folks but he is one thing for sure. He belives in the centralised Amhara dominated  Ethiopia .  The famous Oromo singer was killed when he called for Meneleiks statue  to be toppled. That  made the Amhara crazy and Abey took his chance and arrested Jawar.  Jawar is actually the true oromo nationalist  inspired , reformed and ignited oromo naionalism with his Media.  Jawar would have easily beaten  Cabeey Amxaaro in the electiob. The singer was also the obe who coined the tern "Cabeey Amxaaro" in his songs.

 Who to blame? The TPLF? i  think they are innocent.   According to a friend of mine, Gunshots can still be heard in Addis Abbaba.  Jawar was pressing Cabeey Amxaaro to rename the city and allocate the city to Oromiya.

 

 Anyways the TPLF  took a brave desicison. They  defied Abey and are planned to have to their election. The fight now will between  The oromos.

The reformist, the democrat, the Nobel Peace Price, the Americans best choice for religion and group...etc all used up in one year.

galbeedi,

You are still seeing Tigray shadow and afraid of it. They are very practical people. The Tigray have given up on Ethiopia going anywhere in terms of development the way it is. You cannot buy Cagjar and friends for few months and convince me that the Somali are OK with eliminating Ethnic Federalism or making alliance with Amxara. You know its fake news. No matter how many times repeated.

 

The Oromo that are with Abiy are so scared cannot even speak coherently on TV or Radio. The country is at cross roads again as it has been every few decades for centuries.

Every new government starts from zero in different direction than the one before it.

Its sad the Oromo have been had by another Xabeshi again the Amxara and now nobody can get them out of this log jam other than the other Xabesha which is Tigray either from Eritrea or Ethiopia.

The Somali is no where to be found at this time. After 100 year struggle and some self government, the Somali was taken out of the game at the worst time.

in 1990s there were 8 Somali organizations. 4 of them with allies and friends in rest of Ethiopia. 6 of them were determined to have self government at minimum.

I was out of commission for a while. Thanks, MMA for resolving it!

Galbeedi,

The pastor has no longer any support within the Oromo. If there was any hope of them supporting him, he did it away with the asinine move. He was already waging a literal war with Christian West Oromo, and now with Eastern Muslim Oromo, and the South Oromo is under the command post.

Tigray has mobilized its population, its paramilitary force, and regular forces. The pastor lost the plot.

A continued army involvement risks the split of the armed among ethnic lines.

Che,

Welcome back Ninyahow. Meeshani way kuu baahnayd. We were missing the breaking news from that side.

Anyway, many of us were supporting the preacher for his support and commitment of Somali unity, and our government, but this time he went too far.

This are purely the actions of Amhara. Day in and day out they are calling for the arrest of Jawar and Oromo leadership. A culturally Amhara guy can not lead the Oromo revelation.

We need a real leader in Somali Galbeed to hold his ground and prepare for the future.

Abiy is trying to copy plays from Meles Zenawi’s playbook.  However, he forgot that the masses have vivid memories of Zenawi’s rule. This is the age of the internet. The masses are better informed than ever and will not fall for old tricks of divide and rule. I hope that the youth keep applying pressure on him and letting him know that he is a transitional leader which was put in place to facilitate peaceful elections.

A temporary and culturally Amhara, pretending to be Oromo and sitting in Menelik chair will not last. 

He should resign and give way to real Oromo before the real civil war to dislodge the Amhara stars.

Western Oromia is already a battle ground. The man had lost the day he rehabilitated Menelik and Haile Salase. He might be trying to reverse everything TPLF did, but to revive the Melelik and Haile who also took our land and killed thousands of Somalis from 1887-1974 is unacceptable.

WE somalis and Oromo can not allow or accept an Amhara leader in Ethiopia. It is a direct threat. It is simple as that.

Galbeedi,

As usual, you never learn. For you are quick to fall in love, politically, to any passing man through the side of your eyes, particularly if the "voices in your head" tells you that he may be an opponent of Somaliland, or likely to be one.

And you are quick to cry out a deafening scream of political betrayal and a deeply-felt anguish of the sort a jilted lover can be expected to roar with it, especially, if that innocent man in which you were smitten with, politically, actually turns out to be holly unpersuaded chap about the "efficacy" (or the desirability) of being a political enemy of Somaliland.

Hence this is what the idea of waiting and loitering in the antechamber for a passing man with a "would-be borrow-able muscle" does to any kind of person who was the one who was waiting there, and therefore, he will never be taking that seriously by anyone. Which is what you are, or in fact, do. And that is why I can of pity you, really.

Do you follow my logic and the thrust of my argument?

But just in case you don't seem to follow the gist of my argument, let me expand in here and say that ever since Mr. Abiy - the preacher - came to the political scene of Ethiopia, you were his "political water-carrier", as well as the nearest "card-carrying verbal sycophant" he could have around here of SOL.

And, lamentably, you did all that throughout that time without never once (not a freaking one time) given us any larger convincing arguments as to why you thought (or really believed) that he was anything other than a man who is out to "protect" those who he is beholden to, at least politically and culturally.

And since it's the Amhara (and its agenda for Ethiopia) in which he was beholden to, at least culturally and politically, then it was a tragic and a "foolish gamble" on your part to believe that he is going to rearrange Ethiopia's power equation in favor of Oromo. Let alone in favor of the Somalis in Ethiopia. Or he may even indeed empower the Muslim Oromos, who at least we Somalis can have some sort of a "dialogue" based on some religious commonality in which we share with them.

I really do find it difficult to take the measure of your argument that seriously. For there is a glaring level of flimsiness and wishful thinking embedded in the heart of it.

Let this be a lesson to you, my friend. And take care from now on not to freely give your "political loyalty", or even your "emotional attachment" to any politician or to a group of politicians in which you have no idea how seriously they actually share the fundamental premises of your political ideas.

Galbeedi,

It really doesn't matter who we accept or who we don't. As long as we are playing a second fiddle to someone else's grand design, we will just be someone's pawn.
