The rotten gasp of Ethiopianism and the confused Amharic speaking inferiors

By Rundaasaa Ashetee Hundee

There is no doubt that most of the ethnic groups of empire Ethiopia are the victims of the political catastrophe that the Abyssinian kings and clergy men have created.  Thought such catastrophe can and should be left behind as history, the confused Amharic speaking inferiors who interpret this catastrophe as a noble work based on their narrow perspective have continued to breath a rotten gasp of their final death.

Worse of all, some mentally disturbed inferior men like Larebo run around to get some attention by smearing the good history of the Oromo people. Even though the opinions of few mentally disturbed men such as Laredo may not affect the Oromo nation’s struggle for liberation, medias that allow such sick men to come and vent hatred may help the Tigre tribe to stay in power a little longer, of course, if they are able to let past to occupy, disturb and divide the Oromo people.

The hate and the filth which inferior Larebo had been spewing against the Oromo people over several past years and the false stories specific and consistent with the Amharic speaking clergy men behavioral pattern that larebo had been telling are shameful. As he hallucinated the division of the Oromo along East, North, Center or West regional lines, Larebo also dreamed the greatness of his Habasha cruel masters whom he thinks are related to him. What is true however is that Larebo comes from the Kambataa minority tribe whom his great masters used to call “Gudeella.”

Just like Larebo has done this week, certain old Nafxanyaa men named Getachew Haile and Aleme Eshete had been venting hatred against the Oromo people as well. These ignoble individuals tried to explain the history of the Oromo people in a manner their vulgar grand parents did for years.  Having offensive position as strategy in mind, they tried to hide the undeniable truth of the Amharic speaking killers’ historical heritage of cruelty, cheating, immorality and hate and promoted their chauvinist parents’ political views.   But sad for inferior Larebo was that the Oromo people and the Amharas stood together and fought the Tigre tribe domination in a way never been witnessed in the history of the rotten empire.  It is sad for inferior Larebo because the Oromo and the people of Gondar disregarded his efforts to create a division and stood together as one. Now Larebo is frustrated by Oromians heroic battle against the Tigre colonialism and by their refusal to succumb into hate that he concocted for them. Obviously, this frustrated little larebo had to scream louder and vent his hatful historiography hoping that denial may ease up the pain from which his aching hatful heart is suffering.

Just not long time ago, racist man named Getchao Haile tried to dissect the Oromo nation along Guji, Borana, Arsi, Maccaa, Karrayyu, Hoborra etc clan lines to intentionally confuse the young generation that Guji or Arsi are not part of the Oromo nation.  This dying ignorant racist thought that doing so may lead to the Guji Oromo clan to rise against Arsi, and the Maccaa to rise against the Tulamaa Oromo clans.  Haile was never alone. Ever since the Amharic speaking people established dominance over the Oromo people, their ignorant clergy men have tried to implement similar evil plot among the Caboo, Sooddo, Argoba, Hadaree, Isa and Afar with limited success.

Nevertheless, regardless of their hard work and efforts, the people they have been trying to rip apart showed an emotional and psychological attachment to each other and fought the evil political structures of the dying empire. As a result, now the new generation of the rotten empire understands the processes that hindered the development of liberal democracy in empire Ethiopia.  They know that the Amharic speaking people had been the elites of empire Ethiopia, particularly, hatful men like Getachew Haile and the like retained much power and influence until mass revolt took place in 1974 and removed them from power.

Since that day on, few thugs such as “Larebo, the inferior” promoted racist ideologies specifically targeting the Oromo people.  While Aleme Eshete and Getachoo Haile’s effort was to revive the Habasha supremacy above every ethnic group in the empire that is already suffering from the political turmoil resulted from the Tigre tribe dominance, little Larebo’s situation attests the fact that his brain functions at human’s primitive level thinking.  In general, Larebo, Alame and Getachoo are not capable of recognizing the political process that was started by Garmamee and Gen. Mangistu Niway, men who opposed to the “feudalization” of empire Ethiopia and killed many of the Habasha aristocrats who promoted the values, the life-style and the Amharic speaking people’s superiority over the remaining ethnic groups of the empire.  Similarly, Walelinyi Mekonen, Haile-Mariyam Gamadaa and the like confronted and dismantled the Amharic speaking groups racists political tradition and bureaucracy in unthinkable manners. Thanks to these and the generation after them, the Amharic speaking inferior’s racism is relatively weak today.

What is strange about these racist men’s case however is that they can’t recognize a highly successful liberation movement that led to the freedom of the Eritrean people and the looming socio-economic changes that is taking place in empire Ethiopia today.   Admittedly, the Oromo people’s movement for liberation may have been hindered temporarily, but power relations among the Amharic speaking people and the Oromo people have been changed forever and the Amharic speakers’ racism is suffering a very unstable fate.  In the process, little racist men such as Haile Larebo and Getachoo Haile have lost much of their former legitimacy as their old way of thinking is partly being replaced by the emerging liberal democracy upheld by the new generation of empire Ethiopia.

As to Larebo’s claim that he is Gondare, we have witnessed some dark skinned black African Americans claiming to be White.   So, we wish Larebo all the best with his endeavor to become Gondare.  Who knows, the Shinashaa, the Qimaant and the Agawu may share blood line with Gudeellaas more than they do with the Falaashaas.

I have to also admit that Larebo was correct when he said that the western Oromians share common ancestry with Gojaamees. It is obvious that the current Bahir-dar was known as Liban, and the people who live there are known as Ilmaan Dhinsaa (Ilmaanaa-Deensa).  When I have great regard and respect for Laredo for hinting this truth, his lies about the Oromo being Gojame won’t enlivens my soul.

In general, my advice to larebo is to stop understanding humanity from limited point of view. I am confident that he ponders harder on human relations from the prospect of great big world. The term big, of course is only relative. I mean, if the galaxy is but a speck in the universe, and the sun but a speck in the galaxy, what then is the earth, and what is Gudeellaa?”

I suppose, of all Waaqayyo’s creations, only people, with their high degree of intelligence, are capable of making that observation.  Only us alone can wonder what we are and what our place is on earth or in the universe. If we can do that, I am so certain that we can wonder how we fit into the scheme of empire Ethiopia. To do that we have to search and research and arrive at the point of discovering that beyond hate and inferiority, there is love of oneself and others.

  1. We must know these gudellas from the Kambatta hate the Oromo people historically. Larebo is paid by the tplf/tigres to insult the Oromo people. He has never studied the history of Oromos. He copied from the foreigners who wrote about the Oromo people as inferior.

    The tplf/tigre regim is recruiting soldiers from Kambatta. Just like the tigre appointed anothe Walammo/kambatta as prime minister insult to both the Oromos and the Amharas.

    The others, Getachew Haile and Aleme are typical ignorant racist. They all are on the tplf payroll.

    Racists are always ignorant and sick. Don`t forget adolf hitler, the sick man

  2. “Sareen eegee qabdu utuu bukoo koo nyaattee na hin aarsu” jette niitii Oromoon tokko.

    Kan iseen kana jetteefis immoo, waan sareen eegee citaa ka ofii iseetiifuu qaamhanqee ( maimed ) taate bukoo iseen buddeena tolchuuf qopheefatte jalaa nyaatteef.

    This above well-known Oromo proverb is for the irrationalist and fictionalist Prof. Haile Labrebo and his host Esat moderators who are intentionally preparing individuals from others subjugated ethnic groups to ignite problems between Oromo and these ethnic groups neighbouring Oromia. This is the so called ” holding fire with other’s hand”. Here the Oromos must be carefull with how to deal with such a complicated situation. It is very clear and anticipated that the offsprings of old Neftenyas are trying to reverse the unreverseable wheel of history. In 21th century of human civilization, no sane and rational persons act like these Neftenya generation.

    “Eregna” ? Yes, we were eregna, and we are still eregna, because we have millions of cows, camels, sheep, goats, chicken, horses, mules, donkeys and a very wide Oromia, from Sundan border in west, to Somalia border in east, from Lake Ashange in north, to Moyale near Kenyan border to herd our cattles on green Oromian field.

    And what does irrationalist and fictionalist Larebo and his befriended Neftenya offsprings herd ? Monkeys on the tree or harlets in Addis Ababa clubs ?

    The Neftenya offsprings are heavly suffering from identity crisis which is forcing them to create the utopian country by melting all ethnic groups in that country together. Delusion ! Halucination ! They are losers.

  4. The word wolamo comes from wey-lamo which means surprising cow (lamo =cow). So we souldnt expect much from Larebo. Yes Oromos are looking after cows such as him. I was saying even if the Larebos look like chimpazees, they do think like humans. But the interview proved me wrong. I see they are stil evolving. No need to waste time discussing about low level primates.

  5. It is better to criticize/condemn individuals who try to create divisions among our people, Oromos who are united more than ever to the dismay of their enemies. Because of our time tested and honorable ethical values (safuu), let us be sensitive to other oppressed nations/nationalities, such as the Walayitas They were called Wollamos first by the ruling class of Abyssinians. We shouldn’t repeat it. Let us remain respectful of the people.
    I know, Getachew was the first person who expressed his dislikes when Afaan Oromo was used for the first time in advertisement during the Communist Military Regime. He is a hater. He is among frustrated Abyssinian elites after loosing his identity of being an Habesha. He believes that Queen of Sheba mentioned in the New Testament is different from the one mentioned in the Old Testament. Nothing is further from the truth. He believes that the so called Menelik 1st was the son of Eteye Azeb ( a girl from Tigrai) – another wide spread mythology. He refers to her as ‘Hazeb’ ( Queen of the south). However, the Bible clearly states that there is no difference between Queen of Sheba and the Queen of the South. Larebo and Getachew are confused individuals who lost their identities. If you way them on scales, they weigh less than a puff of air.

    1. Please read detailed explanation about the mythology of Queen of Sheba under Obboo Rundassa’s previous article on this website. She belongs to Yemen. The lies about her was compiled most probably by a Coptic priest in 13th Century AD in a book entitled: Kebra Negest (Glory of Kings).

      This book have great influence on Getachew Haile and other racists in the Ethiopian empire. Even Getachew believes Queen of Sheba belongs to Yemen. However, contrary to what all the sacred books of the three monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) say, Getachew believes, there is another Queen of South mentioned in the New Testament. He calls her Azeb. He believes she was the mother of the imaginary Menelik I, the first son of Solomon. Solomon never had a son by the name of Menelik. Abyssinia and modern Ethiopia were ruled based on such mythology. I can not stress enough as to how the mythology about the Queen of Sheba shaped the views of individuals like Getachew. It was one of the the main sources for the establishment of a cast and racist system in the empire. Its impacts are still being felt.

      Those who believe the content of Kebra Negest can not help to be a racist. Do not take my words for it but read online and have your own opinion. Thanks.

  6. What is this Bla Bla Bla, truth always hurts, use your time to improve your writing skill. Thanks to scholars like Haile Larebo we know that Ethiopia is a mix, Oromo has his part in distruction and nation building in Ethiopia. Your dead political rhetoric is no much to well researched histrory and life time carreir. Your the oprtunity to educate your sick mind

    1. Why don’t you express your views without resorting to insults? I know Getachew Haile in person. I saw Larebo’s writings and claims. Could you tell me how Larebo as a Khambata is related to a Gondare? What makes you to believe that his distorted views about Oromos were based on facts?

      Do you believe he knows about Oromos more than internationally recognized Oromo scholars?

      I am not against any nation, nationalities and people in the Ethiopian Empire but the most oppressive, archaic and absolute Abyssinian regimes. This is indisputable historical facts.

      Who fought in various wars to

  7. Well said by the author; and thank you for sharing a very good observation of current OROMOPHOBIA Project by ESAT and those behind it ; AG7 and SHABIA.

    New marriage is displaying between SHABIA and Ethiopianist with their egg rotten ideas and concepts of what it should be the new Ethiopia. How is possible Ethiopia without Oromo or Amhara ???

    In the new era of information ESAT’s attempts to blackmail, smear campaign will not work. The current environment is not the same as 100 yrs ago; we should fight back with truth and facts that are well documented.

    SHABIA = TPLF = AG7 = ESAT they have one thing in Common which is = OROMOPHOBIA / AMHARAPHOBIA.

  8. Oromos,

    shake your brain and be aware !

    Oromos have no problem with the Amharas and southern peoples like Walayita, Sidama, Kampata, Kaficho and others. The main Oromos problem is with Neftenya descedants who are trying to undermine the Oromos and others in Ethiopia like their ancestors. These handful of bunch identityless are doing their best to bring conflicts among Oromos, Amharas and south peoples, by recruiting traitor individuals like Larebo and others, in order to exploit the conflicts for their power hungry interests. So, avoid immotional attacking and defaming others, because of these traitor individuals like Larebo. Don’t forget that we have hundreds of scholars like Mr. Lapeso.

    Oromos, take care of the resurrecting serpent. In 1991, you killed the serpent which devastated your land, culture and property, but you haven’t hang the dead serpent on a tree. You have left it on the ground and now it is resurrecting from death by feeding on the soil. And the resurrected creature is very, very dangerous than the normal creature.

    For the Neftenya descendants, there is no any other choice than shapping up themselves to respect others and live with them, or decide on shipping out.

  9. Thank you Rundaasaa Ashetee Hundee for your insightful article. I did not watch Haile Larebo’s interview in full because some low level individual like him does not deserve my time. However, Larebo’s deceit reminded me some jokes from my college days. In the old days, my peers who went to colleges outside Addis/Finfine used to join those of us who went to colleges in the capital during summer breaks, and we would sit in cafes around Arat Kilo and talk about everything and make jokes. The group included Oromos, Amharas, Eritreans, BurstedFibres, Tigres and even some from Kambata. One day, a joke about the ethnic groups in Ethiopia started and we had a laugh; there were positive jokes which did not offend anyone until someone asked if there were jokes about ‘Gudella’. An Amhara guy boldly claimed that ‘those who attempt to pervert the course of justice recruited from the Gudella for a couple of birr’. When no one was amused by what seemed unfair claim he insisted that ‘was true and they were known for providing false alabi. Although I had a chance to meet some decent individuals of Kambata origin, the manner displayed by Larebo reminded me that old joke/claim. As for Larebo, he might had been born in captivity to his parents’ captors and was raised with low self-regard. His body language during the nterview clearly exhibited a person with the lowest self-esteem and his talks lacked intellectual currency. As for some media which use the name of Ethiopia and wrapped in Ethiopian flag while discrediting the great nations contained within Empire Ethiopia, it is time for them to wake up and see that the great Oromo people have advanced towards their freedom and the proud true Amhara people have shown their solidarity and expressed that ‘the wishes of their Oromo brothers is theirs too.

    Victroy to the Oromo and genuine Amhara people!

  10. Just to add couple of things:

    In the late 90’s when I was a student at the U of MN, I had a Professor whose native land is Finland. At the time he would be between the ages of 78 to 83. He told me during his childhood in Finland, they refer today’s Ethiopia as Abyssinia. It’s very unlikely this person is still alive but he would be close to 100 years old. It appears that he was born prior to 1920. Although some people claim that Ethiopia has existed as a current entity for thousands of years, unbiased, ordinary (not historian or politician) citizen of the world like this professor share their own knowledge without any interest in it.

    About a decade or so ago I traveled to Australia. There, I met African immigrants. As you can imagine, there are very few black people in some parts of Australia. It’s quite natural to greet each other when you see someone of the same skin color as you when/if you happen to be in such environment. During my short stay there, I became friend with these Africans—Rwandese, Nigerians, Senegalese. Among them the Rwandese thought me a lesson about Oromo. One of the Rwandese was among the first to re-settle in Australia. Probably 30 years ago. He said, his grandmother and her extended family emigrated from “Ethiopia” and her family’s breast and hand were cut off by the Abyssinians as she told him. As a child, he told me he grew-up thinking he is from Ethiopia. He even knew his “tribe” (as he puts it) is Oromo. For me what is more evident about his Oromo nationality origin is the names of his ancestors he listed.

    People like Dr. Larebo assume that we don’t know about the real Ethiopia or Cush. What we Oromians rejected is the empire Ethiopia that the Abyssinians (Arabs from Yemen) named after the Cush and the Nubians…etc. You will hear/see his arrogance when he belittles us as if we don’t know Ethiopia.

    In summary, the above 2 encounters I learned from are among very few of many testaments to the history of the prison of states known as “Ethiopia”

  11. How disgusting to hear Larebo commenting about Oromos. Wow! Wow! Larebo barks. We know who gave you the bones of rats so you could bark for them. Oh sorry in USA may be they gave u chicken bones, u r barking loud. In fact I cant expect more than this from Larebo given his upbringing!
