Our next critical focus is rehabilitating the people of Tigray. All Ethiopians need to cooperate to rebuild the Tigray region.

Reports indicate that refugees in Sudan are mostly male, as opposed to women and children. Who are these male youth? If the youth are part of those who massacred innocent civilians in Maikadra, then they need to brought to justice.

Ethiopia is a country that knows diplomacy. It’s a founding member of the UN and AU. My message to friends of is that we may be poor but we are not a country that will negotiate our sovereignty. Threatening Ethiopia for coins will not work.

There is no way to explain the Maikadra massacre perpetrated by TPLF. It is the epitome of moral degeneration.

National armaments have purposely been kept and amassed in Tigray region for years by the TPLF criminal clique.

Despite TPLF’s many orchestrated roadblocks, we managed many reforms: charity law, anti-terrorism law, media law, the electoral law, human rights commission reform, electoral board reform, amongst many others. Our relations in the Horn also shifted positively. PMAbiyResponds

The impression that TPLF left when EPRDF decided to merge is a false narrative. TPLF itself endorsed the merger. TPLF itself had also voted for the decision to adopt the Algiers decision & forge peace with Eritrea. Then they go out in public & say they didn’t.

The Ethiopian diaspora needs to be conscious of how illegal remittance channels have been benefiting the criminal TPLF clique to mete out violence against its own people.

Conflict b/n Afar & Somali regions showed a departure from the traditional pattern indicating it was also orchestrated. Women were being targeted; fighting was at night with fighters faces covered. We ordered the army members to leave & after that it was quite.

In Oromia region alone 37 conflicts were orchestrated in the past 2.5 years, sowing the seeds of division along ethnic and religious lines. Yet TPLF claims to stand for the people of Oromia after leaving many lives in shambles through conflicts they initiated.

Over the past 2.5 years there were 113 conflicts orchestrated throughout the country, expect in Tigray region. All these conflicts supported financially, through trainings, through media organized for this to give an impression the new administration is weak.

Reforming the defense force was difficult in the initial stages considering domination by one group. Four star generals from Tigray constituted 60% while the rest of 40% were from the other parts of the country. The same was true with other army ranks down the command chain.

“Our request for the release of political prisoner Andargachew Tsige was also met with a strong resistance by TPLF. They told me that it would dangerous to release him. This led to a conflict. I asked myself who is the Prime Minister now?”

We took a firm decision to remove “mini governments” operating within the legitimate gov by taking measures to guarantee institutional independence from the influence of a clique working for its own survival. This was done particularly in the security sector.

Our first trip in 2018 was to the Somali Region b/c of the dangers it was facing by then. We were told we cannot go by the head of intelligence at the time, on the false context that Alshabab was going to attack us. I told him to bring data to that effect and went to the region.
