  1. Tony Blair is war criminal… committed acrocits in Iraq , Ethiopia ( by aiding TPLF apartheid regime from start and creating lyu- police Ganges in Ogden ,,,)
    His organization is not more lobbyists and Maney laundering apparatus for wayane looters where by tony gets % of looted resources and lobby for apartheid minority regime in FINNFINNE..

  2. “…Tony Blair Africa Governance Initiative, a for profit entity…”
    Well, he got the message by cancelling his looting journey.
    He went to make profit from blood of our people. Qerro should never grant foreign criminals and sponsors of TPLF free passage in Oromia, no matter who they are and where they come from.

  3. Such organizations could have hidden agenda to accomplish. In this era of neocolonialism Africans should not trust the so called western donors and advisers!
