One could understand from Lubaa Ettaffa's response to the interviewer that both groups (Dawud's and Hassen Hussen's) have no different position when it comes to democratizing (of course if it's all possible) the empire. Therefore, the real solution for our people does not come from them [Asmarra Group] unless they change their current position and join the original OLF program.

They can join the opposition parties in the empire but there is NO WAY!! NO WAY!! NO WAY!! ..., they go back by as OLF. I would even encourage them to go back and join the “legal” way instead of contemplating for years and years. That in response would clear the cloud hovering over the liberation struggle. That in response would bring understanding among millions of Oromoos whose vision is distorted due to the cloud put out there by the Asmarra group.

Hey traitors, if you think you can simply tarnish down this legendary liberation front whose several thousand Oromoos life had been perished to resurrect it, as guma baas from Finfinnee said above there is no doubt that you will pay for it.

The good news is that the Oromo struggle will be cleansed of these scams. The bad news is that Meles Zenawi is laughing his head of and saying welcome to hell!

These cowards only deserve to rote in hell. Their act is the ultimate betrayal. How can you square this surrender with the recent wave of arrest in the whole of Oromia. Are these poor souls the necessary sacrifices?

Oh by the way the OLF was split in 2001 precisely because of the decision of the Asmara Group to sell the Oromo people. Thus, lo and behold genuine OLF will continue the struggle. Time has come for Oromo nationalists to determine their own fate i.e self determination.

I hope you will join me in saluting the real OLF led by his Excellency Dhugassa Bakako.

I read the article ("Melles to [the Asmara Group of] OLF: Leave Asmara or No Talks
Beware of Mediator Bias and Mediation as a Tactic: A word to the Wise") posted by the blogger a while back. It really thought me and reminded me a lot. Blogger, I can't say enough. Just in short THANK YOU!!! At least for showing us facts and evedencies the trends of negotiation with TPLF and the meditor Bias.

There is no doubt that the Professor is biased and is on TPLF side. How can the Lubaa speaking to the interviewer a day or two ago, and the two other people could be neutral? I know they are Oromos but would it possible for them to use their negotiator position to have Mallas give-in any of his requests? I very much doubt they could have any say on this talk. I believe they just ask OLF to give-up. I assume they will say to them "Maalo jaraa keenya mal gotu dhisaa mee kotaa galaa" I also believe the OLF leaders will resist any attempt comes their way to have them surrender to the facisist government.

Yaa waaqi ati nu gargaari, lubooni keenyas sabaa isaani irrati mala malu ti ka'ani!!!

To Set the Record Straight
Statement of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) Regarding VOA Interview on Negotiations
with the TPLF Regime
In an interview with the Voice America Amharic Service, and also reported by the Afaan Oromoo
Service, on November 14, 2008, Rev. Ittafaa Goobanaa, as Representative of the Oromo
Elders, stated, among others, that the OLF has accepted, in principle, the TPLF/EPRDF
(Ethiopian) Government’s Constitution, to negotiate a peaceful resolution of “the political differences”
between the two. The OLF is compelled to respond to the issues raised in this interview
to set the record straight.
To begin with the OLF has a clear and standing policy regarding negotiations with the TPLF regime.
It is true that in January 2008, the OLF delegation met with the Oromo Elders group, in
the presence of a third party observer and facilitator, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The OLF
Delegation went into the discussion with these elders respecting the traditional position of elders
in our society without questioning the motive, the identity or the feasibility of their project. All the
OLF Leadership’s contacts with the Oromo elders were conducted in the presence of a third
party facilitator. The OLF delegation has made clear to the elders the OLF’s long standing policy
of negotiation with the TPLF regime (Ethiopian Government) among which is that no precondition
should be attached to it.
It is also true that the Oromo Elders Group presented to the OLF delegation their proposal to the
OLF and the Ethiopian Government to enter into negotiation. The presented proposal requires
the OLF, among others, to “Accept, in principle, the Constitution of the Federal Democratic Republic
of Ethiopia.” After an extensive discussion, the OLF Leadership delegation agreed, despite
clear contravention of the earlier understanding and its policy, to present the proposal to
the OLF Executive Committee (EC) and communicate its decision to the Oromo Elders Group,
via the facilitator, in two weeks. This was the only promise that the OLF leadership delegation
made to the Oromo Elders Group.
Accordingly, the Elders’ proposal was presented to the OLF EC. On February 26, 2008, the
OLF EC communicated, via the facilitator, its decision to the Oromo Elders Group that the OLF
will not accept any precondition to enter into negotiation with the TPLF regime, as this will contravene
its policy. The OLF EC’s decision, communicated to the OLF Elders Group stated that,
“this latest Elders’ proposal asking the OLF ‘to accept the Ethiopian Constitution’ is once again
in contrary and contradiction to the above mentioned understanding within which the OLF entered
into discussion with you.” Furthermore, the OLF EC restated the long standing policy of
the OLF pertinent to the peace negotiation with Ethiopian Government and informed the Oromo
Elders Group that, “The OLF-EC, therefore, reiterates its commitment to dialogue without precondition
in the presence of third party.”
On March 7, 2008, the Oromo Eluders Group Representative sent a letter to the Chairman of
the OLF and confirmed the receipt of the above mentioned letter of February 26, 2008, and re-
جبهة تحرير أ ورومو
رقم تاريخ
quested for “a face-to- face meeting” between the Elders Group and the OLF Leadership.
The requested “face-to-face meeting” did not take place to date, as it was not
necessary to enter into discussion on the OLF’s position with the elders. The above is
the whole truth.
The interview on the VOA seems to convey that the OLF delegation agreed to the precondition
and, also fails to inform the audience that the OLF EC has accordingly responded
to the proposal on time. We implore our elders to adhere to the established
tradition of Oromo elders and safeguard the reputation of that respected institution.
Victory to the Oromo People!

How could Oromo elders play jarsuma among a Tigre government and an Oromo Organization. Isn't it a conflict of interest? I am lost.

Thank you for forwarding the OLF response here. Although I don't know and will not be able to know the behind the close door discussion they had at the time, I salute OLF for responding in such a way to the current controversi.

To anonymous 11:17 AM

You may be right the "Elders" could be caught in a conflict of interest. The question is on which side their interest weighs more? Would be on their today's comfortable life they enjoy in the empire or in the future decisive life of their grand childern. I wish I get the chance to ask this question the luba (Gobanna). I mean Rev. Iteffa Gobanaa. There may be some other lubas who may access such posting and other Oromo political media. Luba, please whisper the question to your colleague for me.
