  1. Dawud Ibsa is a GIANT AMONG OUR PEOPLE, A MAN WHO SURVIVED A POISON ATTACK BY ETHIOPIAN AGENTS, BUT NEVER GAVE UP ON OUR STRUGGLE UNLIKE THE TURNCOAT TWINS of Diimaa Nogoo & Leencoo Lataa! After the OLF withdrew from the TPLF-dominated ‘Transitional Government’ in 1992, AND THE LOSS OF THOUSANDS OF OLF FIGHTERS LOCKED UP IN CAMPS BY THE ORDERS OF Leencoo Lataa and his Cohorts in the Central Committe of the OLF, WHOSE ORDERS jaal Dawud IS SAID TO HAVE DISAGREED WITH VEHEMENTLY at the time, he went on to SINGLE-HANDEDLY REBUILD the OLF AND REVIVE THE OROMO NATIONAL STRUGGLE!

    Some 27 years later, in 2018, Dawud Ibsa will, ONCE AGAIN, defy the odds AND MAKE THE BEST OF A POLITICAL DOUBLE CROSSING BY THE DICTATOR OF ERITREA! In an ultimate disgrace to the Office of the Presidency and the Government of Eritrea, and in a Machiavellian maneuvering which, apparently, happens to be second nature to Afwerki, Jaal Dawud was GIVEN THE ULTIMATUM OF EXPULSION from Asmara, if he refused to “make peace”, with Abyi Ahmed’s newly formed Nefxagna State and his Generals. MR Afewerki, the Maniacal Murderer, GOT THE PROMISES OF PEACE AND FORTUNE IN THE FORM OF SOME REPARATION PAYMENTS FOR THE WAR OF 1998 FROM ADDIS ABEBA FOR DELIVERING THE OLF TO “Team Lemma” IN A STRAITJACKET! But you WOULD NOT HEAR THESE TYPE OF COMPLAINT-LACED STORIES FROM Jaal Dawud! Among many other testaments to the unimpeachable integrity of his Character, his response to this unfortunate circumstance in Asmara, is partly why HE STANDS AS THE QUINTESSENTIAL SYMBOL OF OROMO DIGNITY AND HONOR TO MILLIONS OF OUR PEOPLE! Jaal Dawud HAD to make the BEST of AN UNFORTUNATE BETRAYAL of the Friendship of the Oromo People by Afewerki, a thug with a ‘Golden Tongue’…(that is what his name means in his language, I am told!) Remarkably, jaal Dawud DID MAKE the best of it! Who would forget the THOUSANDS OF OROMOS WHO DESCENDED ON Finefinne/Addis Abeba to welcome the OLF in Maskal Square? Somehow, he had managed to “put the just Cause of our People on the Map,” because he had blindsided OPDO Cadres & Operatives by having them agree to a “public welcoming” ceremony for the OLF, than a secret flight into Finfinne/Addis Abeba in the middle of the night, never to be heard from again…

    Today, regrettably, Jaal Dawud is languishing in Solitary Confinement–IF HE IS ALIVE AT ALL, FOR WE DO NOT KNOW IF HE IS–isolated from his family & people in the hands of a Megalomaniac Demagogue named Abiy Ahmed, who dreams of the ‘Good Old Days’ of Emperor Menelik’s Ethiopia…

    Let’s learn from the steely determination of one of our Great Leaders! Let’s not relent til we fulfill the dream of establishing a Free, Independent, Sovereign Oromo Republic conceived in Liberty for all her citizens!

    NOTHING LESS IS ACCEPTABLE!
    LET US STAND WITH THE OROMO LIBERATION ARMY AND BRING FORTH THE BIRTH OF OUR REPUBLIC!

    Waqaa Gurracha Oromo Waliin!
