Dear Senator Chris Coons,
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali did not fail and disappoint global leaders like yourself alone.
Prime Minister Abiy failed himself, his country, and above all, the entire Ethiopian people, who supported him whole heartedly in 2018, when he decided to take the country back to pre 1974, the imperial Ethiopia era, the era of European style serfdom regime locally known as the Neftagna System, where handful of Amhara supremacist and racist groups subjugated and robbed the entire country.
Now, the country is at war with itself in every corner. It is collapsing from within. Yet, Prime Minister Abiy thinks he is rebuilding “the Amharic speaking Ethiopia” on the long outlawed assimilationist agenda of the imperial era. People who could have helped him are all silenced or excluded, except the Amhara supremacists. Even more worse, he is taken hostage and handed over the political power to decide on the affairs of Ethiopia to the Eritrean dictator.
It is a pity that Prime Minister Abiy could not even see the wisdom of the Good Office of a friendly country like the United States to get him out off this predicament and bring Ethiopia back to it’s senses and save the country from the brink of total disintegration.
I‘m disappointed PM Abiy has not yet fulfilled his commitments to withdraw Eritrean forces, remove obstacles to humanitarian access, & hold perpetrators of human rights abuses accountable. I’m concerned by atrocities continuing to occur across #Ethiopia—inside & outside of Tigray https://t.co/yuWtOXRyUT
