ALERTS! Mass detentions of unimaginable magnitude happening in central parts of Oromia over the last couple of days.

ALERTS! Mass detentions of unimaginable magnitude happening in central parts of Oromia over the last couple of days.

Targets appear to be the youth (Qeerroo) who are either in the leadership ranks/files or ordinary members of the two main Oromo opposition political parties, #OLF & #OFC. Are we back to square one already?

Warri amma walitti qabamee Bilxiginnaa jedhamu kun warruma akka Taayyee kana. Seera, kabajaa, namummaa, safuu, … hin beekan.

Akkuma of godhanuu wallaanii jiru. Abiy akka waaqarraa ergames nama dhuunfaatti ni dubbata. Mootummaan baranaa tun tanuma addaati. Yeroon kun waan dabartu itti fakkaataa hin jiru.

Jawar should have challenged the entire idea of ‘citizenship’. As it stands, it is not ‘just paper’, it might determine his future; they might even ‘deport’ him.

In Oromo language, there is no word that is equivalent to ‘ኢትዮጵያዊ’. On most IDs, they write it as ‘Itiyoophiyaa’ or ‘Itiyoophiyaawi’, both of which absolutely make no sense. This is because they translate it from Amharic. In Oromo language, citizens are called Oromo (both singular and pluarl), the country is called Oromiyaa. Adjectives to describe ‘citizenship’ such as America(n), Ethiopia(n), Japan(ese) etc does not exist in Oromo language. ‘ዊ’ can’t be translated but the OPDO people do it anyway.

Oromo linguists, let us know if there is any possible way of saying Ethiopian in Oromo language.

The entire idea of ‘citizenship’ as it is taken from its original Greek etymology (inhabitant of a city) and now applied, has no place in Oromo society. In our society, individuals don’t become citizens, they become members. They become members of their gosa, age group, gogeessa (party) and saba Oromo.

What is important is not to translate and make some nonsense words in the name of conformity, what is important is to adhere to our values and linguistic rules while enshrining individual liberty and freedom that ‘becoming citizen’ would render.
