  7. I am in deep sadness when I read info. on the passing away of Tarfa Dibaba yesterday and I shared this sad news on face book with concerned Oromo nationals. He was an extraordinary Oromo devoted for Oromo cause not only in his great role in leading Oromo Relief organization but also in building Oromoness all his life. Socially he was a father, a friend and kind to all Oromos. In other words he had all true qualities of Oromuumaa.
    I pray, you may rest in peace. I pass my deepest condolence to his family.

    You will be so missed. You were a true father to many oromo refugees, distance never limited you from helping. You traveled from Germany to Sudan, Somalia, and Kenya to help oromo refugees.
