TWO of the influential Amsterdam and Washington, D.C. based Ethiopian Satellite Television (ESAT) journalists, Fasil YeneAlem and Mesay Mekonen, have arrived in Asmara today to report on the highly anticipated merger of three competing armed Ethiopian opposition forces.
The reporters will visit the different opposition military bases in the country and are expected to report on the state of affairs of these opposition armed forces.
For years, the Ethiopian people have been demanding for a united political front that ultimately leads to a strong, united Ethiopia that are in peace with its neighbors and itself. Time has come for the Ethiopian people to own a united struggle against the minority TPLF regime and pay the ultimate sacrifice to save Ethiopia and its people from the present quagmire.
Accordingly, the merger of the Ethiopian People Patriotic Front (EPPF); Ginbot 7 Movement for Justice, Freedmon and Democracy (G7); and the Amhara Democratic Forces Movement (ADFM) will be materialized in the coming days.
As soon as the merger of the three political forces is completed, the work of allying with other organization such as the highly militarized and the strongest of all, the Tigrean Peoples Democratic Movement (TPDM), will kick off. To help assimilate the said process, ESAT has already allocated a considerable amount of airtime for TPDM propaganda works over its satellite frequency.
ESAT reporters are also expected to conduct a series of interviews with high ranking Eritrean officials.
Ever since Ethiopia announced a change in its foreign policy against Eritrea and actively advocate for a regime change, the Eritrean government has maintained its defensive policy while building its capacity silently, efficiently.
The people of Ethiopia and Eritrea deserves peace and mutual co-existence. But peace won’t come without sacrifice.
