  1. Thank so much Eeda’oo Boruu. This is an excellent work to teach the history of gallant sons and daughters of Oromia the current and next generation. I urge other people who are knowledgeable to comment on obbo Eeda’oos narratives at the end let it be published into book.

  2. Those who have been there can correct me. As far as my clear memory tells me, the group called ‘Oromia’ was the Oromo wing of the EPRP (Ehapa). One can also consult the book by Ibsa Gutema with the title of the book called ‘Prison of Conscience.’

    I heard several times Obboo Edao Boru saying ‘Oromia’ group on a previous interview and lying about the stand of the ‘Oromia’ group. The ‘Oromia’ group was organized by EPRP just like TPLF organized OPDO. ‘Oromia’ group wanted to keep the Empire of Ethiopia intact.

    If you listen to Obboo Edao Boru carefully, he has a Freudian split a couple of times when he talked about the land to the tiller issue. As a member of EPRP and the ‘Oromia’ group, Obboo Edao Boru opposed the land to the tiller because he belonged to the Amhara subsidiary Gobena group called ‘Oromia.’

    For telling the public the truth, Aboma Mitiku was a member of the ‘Oromia’ group before he was recruited by Bekelcha group to join OLF.

    I don’t know why Obboo Edao Boru is misleading the public about this fact and for what political purpose. Obboo Edao Boru is speaking as if he doesn’t know Iyasu Alemayehu (who also goes by Babile Tola). Iyasu Alemayehu was Obboo Edao Boru’s boss in EPRP if indeed Obboo Edao Boru was a member of the ‘Oromia’ group of EPRP.

    There are many lies in this interview or coffee chit-chat.

    1. You don’t know what you are talking about. “Oromia” was the only independent Oromo political organization that was not associated with any other political wing of the time– Ethiopian or Oromo or southern. What distinguishes Oromia from any other political organs of the time is also its very clear political line: forming Independent Republic of Oromia through waging armed struggle. The only organization associated with Oromia was its own youth wing called Guca Dargaggoo. The Oromo wing of EPRP was “Bilisummaa”. Aboma Mitiku was never a member of Oromia group. He was member of Bakkalcha and then OLF member.

  3. Most certainly, Obbo Edao Boru gives the most informative and the most insightful interviews. I have not heard from any other Oromo elder that even gets close to him in explaining the yesteryear. Most of the Oromo elders chose to be very vague in explaining the past but not Obbo Edao. May Waaq give him long life so that he will continue teaching us about the most critical time in the Oromo revolution and the complex political games of Ethiopia. Simply put, he is amazing!

  4. Once again obbo edao has make it clear for oromo and beyond that he is the undisputed king of oromo politics and history but I just can’t understand what the man with long nick name is after. I think he is one of those attention seekers . He is angery because his name is not mentioned otherwise how come some one with a reasonable mind can be against the question of land for the natives in oromia. as it is evidant today and even before any body can came from any where, grabe and tillle the land but the land have it’s Owen owner that is what obbo edao stand for. That cannot make him land Graber but native. Anyways there are always such negative,destructive and unproductive people out there who make oromo politics senseless boring nd paralyzed thank God obbo edao gave fresh breez in to oromo poletics. At last my worries is that his voice is a bit weaker than his former enterview thise time. Pls don’t get sick or older .I wish you more years honorable edao.

  5. Thank you Obbo Ida’o Boruu for remembering these forgotten Oromoo martyrs. Let WAAQAA bless you.
    I have an advise for people like Guca and the other who tries to preach “OROMIYAA” and “BILISUMMAA” are the Oromo wing of EPRP to stop this fictitious propaganda created and circulated by MISN and ICHT to eliminate those independent organizations. And they did so by torturing and murdering the militant leaders of BILISUMMAA. Don’t think this history will be buried for ever as the remnants of the above mentioned Derg lackeys try to do.

    After all it is not so long to think that it is forgotten and don’t think that all members of these organizations were wiped out from the face of the earth. There are live witnesses to day to reveal the true history of these organizations and the martyrs. Have you ever seen any document of EPRP that claims/ claimed that these organizations are created by EPRP? Therefor be careful when you muddle in such a sensitive issue that you don’t substantiate with enough evidence that involved the lives of true Oromo sons and daughters.
    Thank you

  8. The storing capacity of Obbo Edao’S brain is surprizing. smart historical narrator at the right time. Oromian liberation revolution is in process. we are knocking at the door. Abbyssinians are in fury that is why they killed/ kill our brilliant minds. To find such personalities in those dark days, no one expected. The long bitter walks walked is not with out reason.wish long live for Obbo Edao
