Congratulations to Girma Gutamaa for becoming the Director of OMN. Jawar left his media post because he has chosen to directly engage in party politics. He has officially joined OFC. Good luck to both Jawar and Girma.

By the way, it is fair question if some people ask the procedure how Girma became the Director. It is just question, not difficult one to answer.

OMN will continue be serve the Oromo cause, and now probably the OFC cause more precisely. It can do that openly without becoming a mouthpiece of the party, there is no law that can prevent it.

OBN is public institution so it can’t take side with any political party openly, but we all know that is not the case.

OLF has an amateurish media called ONN. I don’t think it is capable of handling election politics for a giant political organization such as OLF that has more chance of becoming the ruling party in Oromiyaa than any other.

OLF does not need party media, it needs a media that supports its policies openly without directly becoming its mouthpiece. A private and commercial media. If there is none, then create one.

  1. Congratulations Jawar Mohammed, Girma Gutema and OFC!

    I have become aware of, and watched these young Oromo intellectual activists since they started to champion Oromo cause. They have shown deep understanding of Oromo issues and the complex political environments in which Oromo quests for freedom, truth and justice are dealt with. They have also exhibited consistent commitments and determinations. With truth, qeerroo and qarree as their immense source of support, I have unwavering confidence that Jawar will be huge credit to the OFC and Girma will take OMN to the next stage of media success.

    Professor Merara Gudina was my course tutor at some point and I had close acquaintance with some of the OFC officials whom I currently come across when searching for information on Oromo current affairs. These individuals along with other Oromo leaders have come long way to get Oromo struggle to where it is now. As Mahatma Gandhi once stated: “A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history”. I hope that Jawar’s membership to the OFC will energize the party and enable it to widen its scope and mobilize the Oromo people to use their votes effectively and elect their true representatives in the promised 2020 Ethiopian election. All Oromo parties and organizations must read each other, support each other and pull/push in the same direction in order to achieve Oromo big objectives. They must inspire each other positively and support each other on matters pertinent to Oromo interests.

    All the best of successes to Jawar Mohammed and Girma Gutema as well as OFC in their endeavors to empower the great Oromo people!
