The one man show continues with his pentacostal christian belifs that he is the "chosen" one to lead Ethiopia. A year ago he was smiling in Mekelle and declared the war over and now he has rebels at the doorsteps infront of the capital. 20 % of all officers were Tigrayans in the Armey and they left for the TPLF. What you have now is a rag tag militia composing of oromos and amharas, I have said it before.
This war will be decided by the oromo people. TPLF loves to brag but its not popular and could not cut the road to in fierce fightings with our afar cousins. They can not march into the capital. But they are smart. They made an alliance with some oromos, all muslim oromos are against Abey lets see if that Jaal can actualy bring the christian western oromos together and fire a single shot. A single shot is now what it take spread panic in Addis.
Oromos, are many but far to much divided. This war will be decided by them. But what ever happens Ethiopia is now a failed state. In peacefull regions of Oromiya, qeero youth stormed the police stations and infiltrated the security apparatus. Dire Dawa police force is now run by a former OLF commander Ahmed maru. Lets see if he defects.
Ilaahay nigu dhaarshay, does Abey Amxaaro really think afars and muslim oromos will die for him in the god for saken terrain of Amhara highlands? Does he think the somali nomad has this "ethiopian nationalism"?
War bax dheh, The guy is full of crap and propaganda. As a true saaxir he thinks he can outfox ppl with cheap rhetoric. Lets see in 1 month what happens.
DDIS ABABA, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Every afternoon, Getachew Megersa searches the Ethiopian capital for undercover agents. The 55-year-old construction worker says it's not the first time he's defended his country against rebellious Tigrayan forces.
"I am now safeguarding my city with a stick, but if it is required and they give me a weapon, I will do the same," the former soldier told Reuters.
He is among tens of thousands of Addis Ababa residents who joined defence groups after Tigrayan fighters threatened last month to march on the capital.
Getachew and his team - dozens of men in bright orange vests, brandishing hefty sticks - search pedestrians and cars for weapons and suspects from noon until 10 p.m.
As a young man, Getachew spent 12 years in the military under the Marxist Derg regime, which was eventually toppled in 1991 by rebels from the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) and its allies. The TPLF dominated government for nearly three decades, until Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed came to power in 2018.
Relations quickly soured between Abiy's government and the TPLF. War erupted a year ago in the northern region of Tigray, and thousands of civilians have been killed, millions displaced and at least 400,000 people in Tigray forced into famine.
Now Tigrayan forces have recaptured most of Tigray and pushed south and east into the neighbouring Amhara and Afar regions, threatening the capital and a transport corridor linking landlocked Ethiopia to the region's main port Djibouti.
"There is no way that they (TPLF) will be able to rule Ethiopia again," Getachew told Reuters. Too many people in Addis Ababa oppose them, he said.
Many on Getachew's team remember the 2005 elections. The TPLF-dominated government re-ran that vote and cracked down on protesters. Tens of thousands were arrested. Old amhara derg members with bamboo sticks patrolling Addis will not protect addis.

The group began patrols a week ago. Once, they received a tip about three strangers who spent their days inside and moved around at night. Neighbours heard the men speaking in Tigrinya, the language of Tigray. He informed police, who detained them overnight and searched their house, Getachew said.
Nothing was found and they were released, he said. Police instructed him to keep them under surveillance.
"It is obvious that there are infiltrators...who have lived with us for years," Getachew told Reuters.
On Nov. 2, the Abiy government declared a six-month state of emergency in the Horn of Africa country, allowing suspects to be detained without trial for as long as the proclamation lasts and house-to-house searches to be conducted without a warrant.
Some Tigrayan citizens say they are being unfairly targeted because of their ethnicity.
The state-appointed Ethiopian Human Rights Commission has said thousands of people, mostly Tigrayans, have been arrested in the latest of several waves of detentions. Ethiopian police say they are taking suspected TPLF operatives into custody.
TPLF spokesperson Getachew Reda was unavailable for comment on the self-defence groups.
Commander Solomon Fantahun, director of community policing at Addis Ababa city police commission, said police have trained 147,000 male and female volunteers in combating crimes, community policing, discipline, and physical fitness.
He said 2,000 volunteers have received additional training in conducting searches and assisting the police. He says they have helped capture weapons and direct police to suspects.
“These volunteers are the ears and eyes of the police," said Solomon.
Abiy and his supporter Caqjar aka SOL Abtigiis will regret trying to save the Amhara regime. Abiy is already hiding in a safe place spreading fake news that he is leading a war.
Oromos don’t want this Amhaar Pentecostal. Somalis also don’t want dabadhilif Caqjar who is crying for the Amhara regime.
Ethiopia must break up. No other solution.
TDF is reportedly completely kicked out of Afar region. The Ethiopian military and allied Amhara forces captured some areas in Amhara region. TDF risks supply line being cut off.
TDF destroyed Ethiopian army north division. The east division which is placed Somalia border and Afar, still have many divisions intact. Abiya is using the lesson learned by Afar in Amhara region. The remained heavy armed regular forces with local Amhara forces and Afar forces and the air force, the Tigray is done. They do not have the men power and Oromo did not show up. Again Oromo not willing to sacrifice to gain political influence.
Amharo marching. Those emotional Somalis and pro TPLF people. The end of the game Amharo empower with battle victory.
Never understood why Somalis would take any side. Baffling!
OLA are proving to be useless.
Battling are raging all over. It is fluid situation, but it's clear TDF has suffered some significant losses. Now the question is will they retreat to Tigray and avoid supply lines being cut off, or do a suicidal march to Addis in rhe hope of creating choas.
The Tigray will force to negotiate. They are also losing in Adis Ababa front. Now Amharo farmers marching like Mililik time with the government support, the Tigray has limit choices. Next three weeks they will probably lose much of territory they captured and forced to defend their region.
Could this be another western propaganda. They are claiming Oromo is moving toward Adis. I very much debt these guys ability and battle readiness.
