 THE SELF-ANOINTED 7th KING IS THUMPING THE PANIC BUTTON

It seems that Abiy Ahmed is NOT what he imagines himself to be. Everything he said he was turned out to be a fiction, a badly scripted one.
 
1) TIGRAI is by all intents and purpose an independent state in the making. And Abiy Ahmed can’t do anything about it. Once Tigrai conducts its planned elections in a few days, it would be unstoppable.
2) OROMIA is burning. And with all his bluffs and threats, his adventurous & reckless military intervention backfired badly. And he doesn’t have the vision, capacity, and courage to solve the problem peacefully. He has resorted to a mad and savage campaign to malign, demonize, and murder Oromos.
3. GLOBALLY Ethiopia’s traditional allies have begun deserting him due to his immaturity, incompetence, and delusional character.
4. ECONOMICALLY, Abiy’s Ethiopia is becoming increasingly bankrupt and on the verge of possible collapse.
 
No amount of begging or borrowing will save the economy of a poor and unstable country with a delusion-prone conman as its leader.
Now Abiy Ahmed is alone, isolated, and increasingly unhinged. He is routinely thumping the panic button. There are reports indicating that he is talking to himself. He is fearful that his kingdom may be disintegrating, even imploding, on his watch.
At the same time, it is expected that he would soon order the release of almost all Oromo political leaders he unlawfully arrested with the exception of Jawar and B. Garba.
Reports also indicate that Abiy Ahmed has sinister designs for the Somali Regional State (SRS). He and two of his most loyal generals, Jula and Zewdu, are reportedly fomenting violence in the SRS. More on this later.
