I, PROUD ETHIOPIAN: My Reply to the T-TPLF Birthers Doubting My Ethiopiawinet (Ethiopian-ness)

Author’s Note: The irony of ironies is that Barack Obama and I now share one thing in common. The hate-mongering birthers in America sought to cast doubt on Obama’s identity and birthplace to delegitimize his presidency by spinning a conspiracy theory that he was born in Kenya. The T-TPLF hate-mongers are now spinning a birther conspiracy theory to de-Ethiopianize me and delegitimize my unrelenting human rights advocacy in Ethiopia by claiming they have “doubts” about my Ethiopiawinet (Ethiopian-ness). The T-TPLF birthers say “some of my writings over the past several years raise doubt” as to whether I am a “real” Ethiopian.

In this commentary, I offer my reply to the hate-mongering T-TPLF birthers. I am not just an Ethiopian. I am a PROUD Ethiopian. That is one thing the T-TPLF fake, fair-weather Ethiopian wannabes can never, in a million years, say!

The ultimate litmus test for true Ethiopiawinet is total and resolute opposition to the T-TPLF mercenaries.


The T-TPLF responds to me in person for the first time ever!

Last week I gave an interview to Voice of America- Amharic Program regarding my letter to President Donald Trump asking for targeted sanctions against the T-TPLF regime similar to those the U.S. imposed in September on South Sudanese regime leaders, their supporters and business entities engaged in human rights violations, undermining democracy and contributing to instability
