The Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) today denies media reports of General Kemal Gelchu’s expulsion as Chairman of the OLF-for-Change and accused certain disgruntled group of the organization for the baseless report.
In a latest press release today, the OLF re-assured that General Kemal Gelchu is still in charge of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF).
“We would like to assure the Wider Oromo people at home and in diaspora that the general is in full command of the Organization and the information given by few failed individuals of our Organization is false and baseless.”
The counter press release also tells that the misinformation was originated by same individuals that have been suspended by the Chairman recently and the central committee is pending to take further action.
“The suspended individuals were on the verge of being investigated for their crimes, and the method they used to evade accountability is to misinform the public that the chairman has been removed”, the press release said.
Based in Eritrea, the latest purges and counter purges tell the degree of the crisis that engulfed the organisation.
