BBC decided to start broadcasting in Afaan Oromo ***************************************************************
Congratulations! Pending formal announcement, our sources have confirmed that the BBC Trust, the BBC Executive Board, and the Government of the United Kingdom have decided to start Broadcasting to Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa in Afaan Oromo, the single most widely spoken language in Ethiopia.

Tigrigna and Amharic languages will also be part of the new proposed BBC medium and shortwave radio broadcast to Ethiopia and Eritrea. We thank the BBC Leadership and the Government of the United Kingdom for the decision and for heeding to the voice of tens of millions of our people.

The Afaan Oromo Global Coordinating Committee (AGCC) congratulates all Afaan Oromo speakers and supporters for the well-deserved success that mobilized our people and supporters from across the world in our petition drive to reach this goal.

Making Afaan Oromo the federal working language in Ethiopia on equal footing with Amharic will be the next major task in front of us.

The AGCC calls upon all Afaan Oromo speakers and supporters in Ethiopia and around the world to get mobilized in unison to create a more inclusive, federated and bilingual federal government institutions in Ethiopia, the municipalities of the charter cities of Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa.

Creating bilingual federal government structure by making Afaan Oromo an additional federal working language will allow Afaan Oromoo speakers to get unhindered access to all federal government employment, services, resources, information and opportunities by replacing the existing exclusionary and discriminatory monolingual language policy!!!

  1. Simply said, this is PERPEFCT!!!
    Congratulations to all citizens of Oromiyaa and all other neighboring nations!!! Enjoy the beauty and taste of of Afaan Oromoo!!!

  2. Congratulations for this successful campaign and I am sure this will upset a certain ethnic group but who cares, enjoy the moment and let the donkeys scream how much they like. The Oromo are too big to be hidden under utopian dirty flag.

  3. Golden achievment of the year, If all Oromo working to wards positive rather than blocking each others way, we can smartly challenge all obstacles.Still remains more to do,well done brothers and sisters.

  4. Congratulation to The AGCC for making this wonderful effort in networking and global lobbying towards achieving the launching Affaan Oromoo as one of BBC’ broadcasting line. Great Thanks to the Corporate Management of the BBC and the Government of the United Kingdom for this invaluable decision and support for Affaan Oromoo, a language spoken by a large population in the Oromoo Nation and its neighbors in East Africa. The Oromoo people and History will Praise you !!

  5. hi, folks

    BTW, congratulation to the great Ethiopian people, oromo less extremists like whitestar and narrow minded like bariso.

    i hope the broadcasting would help to fight
    poverty ,promote democracy and support the nation to secure peace and development.

  6. Ani ijni ko imimmaan guutee dhuga dubbachuuf baayye gammade oromoonni hundu baga kanaan nu gahe. Kabajniif ulfni gootota keenya kan mirga afaan kanaaf jecha oso qabsahan garu guyya akkana oso hin argin darbaniif ha tahe. “Yekubet megja qunqua ” tahun hafe .itti aane immo dochwele irrati ha qabsoofnu .

  7. Kun Oromoodhaaf tarkaafii guddaa seenaa qabuudha. Galatoomaa warri irrati dalagidan.

    Tokkummaadhaan dalaginaan wanti dadhabamu takkallee hin jiru. Akkuma kana Oromoon itti duulee Tokkummaadhaan yoo dalagee, bakka fedhii isaa ga’uun shakkii hin qabu.

  8. I do not get it why are you happy …. it is the right thing to do and should be done no one has disputed that Oromos do not use their language and culture that is what is happening in Great Ethiopia under the leadership of great people including Oromos … so I do not get it .. you are jumping up and down and make the whole thing the result of your struggle …. BBC is not blind they do research and take notice of other services like VOA who are in the business One thing sure is you are not going to use it to promote your extreme islamic ISIS stuff so calm down … if anything it is great for all Ethiopians not for you Sh*****ts like whitestar and others ….. it is offlimit for you guys

  9. This is great news. Congratulations and thank you those who organized the campaign and led us to victory. Thank you.

    This is good example. It gives us courage and hope. It is quite unusual for the Oromo to rally around big issues and fight till victory. Now we see this is possible.

    Let us capitalize on this great example to work on campaigns on similar issues of higher dignity like:

    – Oromiffa as a federal language
    – Defending federalism as a viable alternative for the future
    – Encouraging and supporting quality of education in our country
    – improving health of our population
    – help in modernizing our society
    – Stopping unlawful eviction of our people from their land. Here we can participate in finding
    a solution that is acceptable to all parties in case the land is to be used for development
    – work to include afaan Oromo as one of world languages studied in institutions of higher
    education worldwide

    All this can be done today whoever has the real political power in the country. We cannot afford to wait until full independence. The risk is if we wait, as many of us are doing today, that independence may not be realized. We have to work towards that goal everyday and specially in Oromia among our people.

  10. Congratulations to all oromos!!!
    This is a big success.Don’t give up in every issue.Don’t give time to think on the rubbish and rotten thoughts of Some Hab ash has. Some times they think like their ancestors of the 12 century.

  11. Ishoo! Ishoo! Akkas! Baga milkoofne! Akkasuma waan hunda Saba keenyaa,hundaaf akkas yoo tokkummaan wal-bira dhaabbanne waan hin goone tokkollee hib qabnu.Baga gammadne.Bilisummaa Oromiyaafis akkasuma wal-bira dhaabbannaan diinni nu dura dhaabbachuu hin dandeessu.Ishoo!!!!!

  12. Congratulations !
    Well done.

    The whole credit goes to the Oromian academic personalities and members of Oromo communities who fought tirelessly to make our dream real.

    Note:
    You are a very significant model to all Oromians aspiring freedom, democracy and progress.
    Please use this golden example you have successfully set to internationalize Afaano in other Oromo bottle neck areas too. For instance the ‘Addis Ababa’ EVIL colonial master plan is another battle field.

    Oromians united, there is no force on earth that can stop them.

  13. Thank you BBC. We love you! Congratulation to Oromo people as whole and Oromo friends who tirelessly worked hard for this to happen. We love you all. We must unite with all our brothers and sisters’ non Oromo people and those who respect and love Oromo people. This is the time we must unite and defeat fascist, Nero tplf from our country as whole. The massacres fascist tplf committing must be stoped by our unity.

  14. Ishoo Baga Milkooftan!! Baga milkoofne!! Waliif galan alaa galan.Gar-gar ba’iinsaafi yaadaan waldhabuu keenya kaleessaaf hirpa kan ta’u walta’iinsaa fi waliigaluu keenya har’aa ti. Kanaafuu adaaraa:-
    Wal haa dhaggeeffannu
    Wal haa kabajnu
    Wal jallannu
    Waliif haa abbomamnu
    Karaan keenya dheeraa waan ta’eef warraa waan xinnootti gamaddee waan gudda dhabuu akka hintaaneef ammoo cimsinee of-eeguun, wal-eeguun gaarii anatti fakkaata.

  15. It really puzzles me why some folks, such as senayt, have a tendency to get a nightmarish- fervor and paranoia ( talk about a tale of an irrationally phobic thing), when it comes to Oromo people and its struggle to achieve an excellence and recognition in all aspects. In this case, a feat in decision of launching new services to Ethiopia and Eritrea in Afaan Oromo, along with Amharic and Tigrnyaa by BBC, with the objective of promoting democracy and press freedom.

    Afaan Oromo is one of the main medium of communication in the country as it stands now, the next mission, among other things, is: the demand for“”working language of the federal government,”” in Afaan in equal footing with Amharic.

    Of course, I do understand, it’s certainly a tall order as to what exactly attributed to this psychologically Kafkaesque as it gets phenomenon- – what else at work here? other than say, the sheer seeking of HABASHAA-CENTRIC outcome to all of these, strictly an Abyssinian nation(s) under the guise of “Ethiopia,” in all its shape and form, with the rest receiving short-end-of-the-stick as a second-class- citizen in their own ancestral land ! What a shame, to say the least!
