Ethiopia: Top TPLF Official Warns Ruling Party Survival at Stake

TPLF official Abay Tsehaye warns EPRDF's survival is in question
Abay Tsehaye: We’ll be doomed and Ethiopia will go up in flames …


A senior official with the ruling EPRDF says the undemocratic culture entrenched in the legislature and executive branches is threatening the survival of the party and that of the government.

According to an audio of a meeting obtained by ESAT, Abay Tsehaye, one of the founders of the minority TPLF ruling party and an advisor to the Prime Minister, said the deep rooted undemocratic and inefficient ways of doing business in the executive and the legislature is so rampant, the country could one day “go up in flames.”

“The executive of the EPRDF and the government cabinet need to change their undemocratic stances if we want to save the country from plunging into crises,” he said reminding the meeting that the status quo has resulted in the kind of uprising in the Amhara and Oromo regions last summer.

The official said anarchy has reigned supreme among the executives that do not accept any criticism for improvement.

Abay Tshaye mentioned instances where incompetent officials are reassigned to government posts. “The legislature should not always directly endorse budget and appointments coming from the executives. It should challenge it,” the official said referring to the rubber-stamp parliament.

Critics of the government say the speech by the official was an empty rhetoric as it comes from an official at the helm of a corrupt oligarchy.

        1. I was just talking with an Ethiopian (Amhara) about this factory and did know how to respond when he said … ወያኔ ኮ ኣማራን አህያ እያላ ይጠራል ይገድላል

          1. “ደሳለኝ” ተብሎ ስለሚጠራው አህያ፤ በወያኔ ሜድያ የተተረከልን ታሪክ መሳጭ ነው። እነሱ ጫካ ውስጥ በነበሩበት ወቅት፣ አስገደ ገብረስላሴ በ45 ብር ገዝቶ ለወያኔ ማጓጓዣ ይሆን ዘንድ አበረከተ።

            ይህ “ደሳለኝ” የሚባለው አህያ ከባድ ጭነት እየተሸከመ ያገለግላቸው ነበር።

            በአንድ ወቅት በጦርነት ተሸነፉና ይዘውት የነነበረውን ስፍራ ለቅቀው ተበታተኑ። ከቀናት በኋላ አንዳንዶቹ ወደቀድሞ ምሽጋቸው ተመልሰው ለመምጣት እንኳን ሲቸገሩ ደሳለኝ ግን መንገዱን ሳይስት እዚያው ስፍራ ይጠብቃቸው ነበር።

            በመጨረሻም የአህዮች አለቃ ተባለና “ብፃይ” (ጓድ) የሚል የማዕርግ ሹመትን አገኘ።

        2. የ አህያ ስጋ ተሽጦ የውጭ ምንዛሪ እንዳይገኝ የሚቃወም ምቀኛ ጅብ ብቻ ነው፡፡

          1. እስከ ኣሁን የኢትዮጲያ የውጭ ንግድ መጠን /value/ ሰንት እንደሆነ ታውቀዋልህ? GTP 1 ወደ 10 ቢልዮን ከፍ እናደርሰዋለን የተባለው ገና ከ 4 ቢልዮን በታች ነው ያልው፥ ኣህያም ሸጥቅ ውሻ የትም ፈቅ ኣትልም፥ ለመሆኑ የኣበባው ንግድ ምን የፈየደው ነገር ኣለ? የኣካባቢ ብከላ ካልሆነ በቀር!

          2. One thing I know for sure !
            Our Tigrai State’s Economy is way much larger ( probably triple) than yours which is being powered by less than 100 MW electric power supply , much less than the energy input required to run a large cement or sugar factory.

          3. What about the “hair business”? How is that going? Donkey HMD, wanted Ethiopians to sell their hair, to help in GDP growth.

          4. Ayte Famine
            Du you mean the resource bereft tiny Kilil, well according Weyanomics yes your beggar kilil is much larger than the state of Eritrea. Such kind of hoax is invalid here but in your closed dungeon sites you could write as you like no one is visiting the sites anyway. When one adds up all the ghost investments you are spiting out every time, exceeds well over 100 billion dollars, well well this staggering sum could even be difficult to get to the great west coast state of California. Ayte Famine you and your midgets are acquiring UNIQUE expertise how to cook figures you are loosing the real meaning of the figures. It is hyperinflation of investment in MLLT land. You may begin to export that dexterity instead the poor donkeys.

          5. Ayte Ras Famine
            where did the double digit growth has gone so you are now desperate enough compelled to depend on donkeys, the MLLT apparatus is defunct and is dissipating in thin air by the day. In the Weyane land convoluted rationale is the modus operandi where lie is truth, white is black ,short is long big is small the list is too long: the MLLT syndrome

          6. kkkk “depend on donkeys” ? you must be a graduate of “Sawa Institute of Technology” to meticulously analyse the Ethiopian Economy. You only need ” Economics 101 ” module to get to the PHD level !

          7. ተናግረሽ ሞተሽል፡

          9. Btw your amharic stinks!
            If you think woyanes are the protector, what’s the reason then the amharas, oromos, and the other tribes hate your guts and always they are against you

          10. Yes you are right. Even the Japanese, the Namibians , the Bushmen in Botswana and the residents in Siberia all hate Tigrians. What do you think we should do Deki Ere wedi halal meriet ?

            Eritrea accepts $10m stranded sick sheep ‘gift’

            The animals have been stranded in the Middle East for over two months after they were rejected by Saudi Arabia in August because authorities there said some had scabby mouth disease.
            Eritrea, one of the world’s poorest countries, this year appealed for aid to meet 90 per cent of its food needs.

            So which one is more embarrassing Mr TesfaNews ?

          12. I will tell you what is embarrassing, selling a horse meat by claiming as a donkey meat. Because of the lack of food in your country the horses growth rate is very small as the size of the western countries donkey, crooks

          13. You know His Excellency, the true son of Ethiopia Sheki Hussain Al-Amoudi as a single person is much richer than your whole country Eritrea

          14. Adal
            Ras Famine has no shame and moral he is ready to sell every thing including himself if he gets a dime from the Sheki, typical MLLT demeanor, in a Dedebit land.

          15. “ze final eh-march 2 ze slaughterhouze”………i wonder if they save some for kitfo ?…, the soft part ! (smh)

          16. What grade are you in? Why are you here?? To defend TPLF KKKK funny what kind of agent TPLF has like HD, ras alula( etro) and sentiko !!! Don’t you think you are selling the whole Ethiopia for one stupid Shaik?? Then people are eating from koshe you don’t have nothing to sell anymore now you start to sell the donkeys? What is left? How can you sell your own brother? This is very cruel!!! If you want to understand!! How is your life?? Watch this you might get it if you have a brain!! this is not a jock wake up brother!! i hope you’ll get it one day !!

        3. Hahahah … Nice
          USA congress would condem Woyane for the first time ….
          … asking Donkey Rights ahead of Ethiopian Rights.

    1. እውነት ነው ወንድሞችህ ልያልቁብህ ነው። 1998 ላይ እንደሆነው ለቅሶ ተቀመጥላቸው። አህያ! የአህያ ልጅ!!

      1. You know your kind when you see one. When you come to kill my brothers you think we spray you with water? You know our mountains are your burial grounds. I don’t wish your brothers to die add your family mourning. But you in the other my god grant you your wish.

    2. WOYANE – EPRDF has already secured $500 million from European Union ( money is in Ethio gov pocket) to build 3 industry parks and one goes to Mekelle ( will be its second one) with $180-200 million and 30% of workers will be Eritrean refugees from the various camps in Tigrai. Construction is to start soon and expected to have huge economic impact on local economy.
      Kibur president Albashir of Sudan is currently in Ethiopia for an official 3 day visit and he and PM Hailemariam have announced the start of the construction of Port Sudan – Ethiopia rail way which will be competing and diminishing the importance of Eritrean ports in the future.

      This is what we call 21St century socio- economic reality in the horn of Africa.

  1. LOL, Abay Tsehaye pathetic attempt at crocodile tears. It is a bit too late for this Woyanista and this fellow thugs – wild dogs can’t learn domestic tricks.

    1. Now the water is at Woyane’s neck, Abay Tsehaye once the master of braging on Oromos by saying “bitiwedum batiwedum ye Addis Ababa Master Plan yitegebiral”, knows that the tide is reaching to the mouth and nose of Woyane, and suffocation and death is inevitable. Let him talk whatever he dreams, but there is no way of deceiving the Ethiopian population on whom he has declared the war of extremination or annihilation.

      1. sentiko is not coming soon out because he knows I m here !! He just can’t!!! believe me I have a lot of things to tell I have been following sentiko many years!! He disappears snice last week!!

    2. ኣሌክ - Alec you · Edit

      Well, this words on the article.. are coming from the horses mouth’Abay Tsehaye’. So ‘Senthico’ is shaking in his Harambe.

    3. Seniko is a sells man for a donkey ,He is not going to talk right now ,is busy to run away.Has to have to sell those Asses and to Vietnam , Thailand and Philippine for spear money the Western wash away their hands NOT money is going to come .Seniko no where to be found.

    4. Sentiko/ sheger addis (he is sometimes Sentiko or sheger addis the same person) I know where he lives what he does!! Trying to come with different nick name still I can find him very easy!! But he is not coming soon out because he knows I’m here!! He just can’t!!! Believe me I have a lot of things to tell I have been following sentiko many years!! He disappears snice last week!!(I can’t wait to see him TN again with his stupid logic & IQ 63)

      1. Beles I believe you need to do Eritrea and the Eritrean people a service by telling us all who he is?, where he lives? And if you have a picture of him please do share it. For every Eritrean must know this enemy and I promise you I will the first in the crowds to hang this bastard!
        Do a service to your people and nation!! Beles

  2. It feels fantastic now Weyane feel so bad,this allergy must be clear of the area for everyone to do best.It is an indescribably good feels,magical and felt almost a bit unreal when weyane ready to die alone.One can win in silence.We did.

  3. ኣሌክ - Alec you · Edit

    Hahaha???????? hji wui-wui koyna meriet- The Tigrayan dominated power is falling apart. TPRDF– the house of cards is starting to fall apart. ???? and soon the ppl of Tigray are the ones that’s going to pay for TPLF’s sin. Well, I guess… what goes around comes around.

    1. You provide refugees and Tigrai gets free $ 200 million industry Park. This is how the peoplemof Tigrai are paying for the “sins” of TPLF 🙂

      1. You begged on the behalf of Poor misguided poor individuals….and you are proud of it….lemany we lemany….how could one get this low?

        1. We did not beg. We convinced our European development partners Eritrean and other East African refugees and wanna be migrants are better off working in Ethiopian factories than risk their lives trying to reach Europe and overcrowd their respective European cities. And to be honest the 70:30 ( Ethiopian :Refugees) ratio is a fair deal and this shows the generosity and welcoming nature of the incumbent Ethiopian government and the Ethiopian state.
          Our only worry and reservation is when peace comes or normalisation assumes, the refugees will be required to go back home, they might dare to claim or ask to take home their share of the state of the art Industry Parks which are planted in Mekelle and other Ethiopian cities. .

          1. Ewey niskas aytisian……mekele lele huwzi Dubai koyna eya ema….entaima sidet be Yemen adliu…tell that to yoir brothers and sisters who living yoir beloved mekele in droves…grow after all you have been downtroden for years..pls don’t bulshit us we know you.

      2. Ayte shiwawa aren´t you six feet under what a miracle have you resuscitated ayte Abeba in VOA, you are a shameful chap, with no value. ” the industrial park” you are bragging will see if it could sustain the coming storm.

        1. Which storm ? You mean the Red- Sea one ? If that’s the one you are refereeing to, its going to engulf your old and decaying Asmara first before reaching to brand new shining Mekelle or our flourishing city Adigrat 🙂

          1. Still you are at it…comparing Asmara with Meqelle. I say thanks again for looking up on Eritrea as standard bearer. Tama lele!

          2. just another rant of delusional grandeur, huh ata wedi agame. Stop fooling yourself bcuz your certainly not fooling anyone else. Once the real Ethiopians take back their power, nothing will stop them from walking over to your dustbin adi Agame and “unflourish” your hamema infested Adigrat/Mekelle…..which would then be the time to hightail your lementi mothers and fathers to Sudan along with whatever adgi’s you may/may not have

          3. Ayte Ugum I thought you would come across what I indicated though you are blessed with IQ63 this was a simple description. A “shining” Mekelle or Adi grat is non of my business since the real Ethiopians have certainly a plan how to deal with that too in near future, on how you “managed” to ” build ” those two townships, if it is true. Nothing is straight forward in a Weyande land. The storm I referred was a metaphor Ach I forgot your IQ, I mean in a plain language the real Ethiopians those who don´t change identity every other day.

        Like they say.. Today u eat good, but tomorrow ur evil deeds will caught up with u. So yes, ur eating-good to day because of ur beloved Woyane-Tigray and tomorrow ur going to suffer/pay for it dearly. And Libya or Syria are the proof. ????

        So see u tomorrow wedi tiny-Tigray.????

  4. Abay Tsehaye is a living proof that man can live without a brain. His brain is so weak, he have to wear crutches under his ears…

  5. Ethiopia criticised over alleged civilian mass shooting

    (BBC World Service) – The campaign group Human Rights Watch has criticised the Ethiopian authorities for failing to hold accountable a paramilitary force it accuses of killing at least 21 civilians in June last year.

    The incident took place in the village of Jaamac Dubad in Ethiopia’s Somali regional state.

    Human Rights Watch said the force, known as the Liyu police, started shooting indiscriminately after an officer had been wounded in a dispute with traders, killing at least 14 men and seven women.

    It says nine months later survivors said they were not aware of any investigation and had not received compensation.

    There was no immediate reaction from the Ethiopian government.

    An HRW researcher has tweeted a copy of the report:

  6. Ethiopia has been engulfed with chios and destruction most of the time 25 years ago our old generation tells us about all the totalitarian administration that brought only suffering, inequality and indiscriminate killing to all Ethiopians and that’s transfer to isolation in the world stage and Ethiopia lost two generation of manpower and resources. When you compare to all of that the current government with all the constraints has achieved a lot of things that described in terms of providing education, health centers and all social development for the masses. When the government top officials says openly their is problem and we need to fix it is not mean their is turmoil going on in the country rather it shows you there is progressive and working democracy that hears genuine people concern and grievances. So, don’t put to match hope on this b/c the situation already settled for better.

    1. I haven’t heard you talking about gheiso for a long time. What happened to it? It was one of Tigrian’s main mining/golden leaf.

      1. Raee
        You should take into account the IQ matter ayte Ethio has problems getting in the message you have to rewrite your words he lucks the basics. He tried his level best to play the reasonable Weyanay, he thought he could go undetected. He is striving hard to act as a none -Weyane but appreciative the Adwa thugs in power.
