Dr. Mitiku Tesso
Dr. Mitiku Tesso

Fired by the opportunity of making money and with the dream to become an ambassador, Dr. Mitiku Tesso’s ugly arrogance is getting out of control. Recently, the Oromo youth/the Oromo people have been fighting the Tigre colonial force in Oromia and this revolutionary movement is taking place at breathtaking speed creating a heart-stopping moment for the Tigre colonizers.  As a result, the Tigre rulers have reversed their master plan deal, even recognized the fact that they are wrong for down playing the unique rights that the Oromo people have on Finfinnee city.

Mean while, Dr. Mitiku Tesso, a man who dreams to become Ethiopia’s ambassadar is sniffing around for a crumb of power that he dreams to have thinking that the Tigreans will stay in power for ever. Of course, Mitiku Tesso have made lots of money, he bought a house in Minnesota of USA, where his kids currently live and go to school. He had built nice vilas in Finfinnee and it\’s surrounding areas.  As if this is not enough, Dr. Mitiku Tesso further dreams to share Abay Tahayye’s last supper, not knowing that the Tigre colonial era is nearing.  To appease his Tigre masters and get his dream job of becoming the next Ethiopia’s ambassador, he willingly invited the Agazi army to Ambo university, Awaaroo branch and let them beat the students indiscriminately and destroy dormitories. Prior to inviting the Tigre butchers to come and murder the students, he told the the Oromo students to leave the university or else face sever punishment. This was done on Sunday afternoon Mitiku gathered students and gave them an order that failed. Instead of leaving the campus, the students asked him to tell the Tigre army to leave the compound. But Mitiku told the students to leave instead.  Like many Tigreans little Chiwawaa Dogs in Oromia do, Dr. Mitiku Tesso saw ordering the Tigre army to come and perform it’s mass killing practice as a solution. That has been what those small OPDO rats such as Muktar and Aster Mamo have been doing and now this guy is swim against the current of the Oromo revolution this time when the majority OPDO members are turning against the colonizing Tigre tribe.

Obviously, for political prostitutes, the death of 86 and imprisonment of over 100,000 Oromians is nothing. Rather, wiggle his way up the ladder of the Ambassadorial position is his life dream. Nonetheless, nothing will ever stop people\’s revolution.  Our people have promised that they will fight the Tigre colonialism forever till the end.  Mitiku thought that the Oromo people will remain buried in the Tigre colonial shame, yet he failed to notice that the Oromo people are standing to our feet and try again and again until the Tigre tribal rule is crashed.  Yes, the Agazi army upon whom Mitiku relies have cold heart and harsh attitude.  Even then, the Oromo people will march out of the darkness and never again let themselves fall astray.  We will continue walking with our head held high for we will never accept defeat.  That is what the Oromo youth who faced off the Agazi army with a single stick in their hands said.   This is the promise of those kids who lie bleeding with their fragile heart tossed upon the ground.  Even them remained positive about winning the liberation battle against the Tigre colonialism.

Many days and years have been lost thanks to the colonialist Chiwawa Dogs among us but there is no going back any more. Even then, selfish men like Dr. Mitiku Tesso may try to take advantage of the death and suffering of poor Oromo youth in order to give better opportunity to their own children.  Yes, the political prostitutes may think that they could capture another opportunity following the political custom common among the Abyssinians but they often forget that they will never be able to extend  their aging life even if they make billion dollars more. Most importantly, the situation that the Oromo youth have created will not allow the opportunists to shovel the Oromo youth blood into their large bellies any more.  There are no more dream to capture at the cost of poor Oromo blood. Hence, Mitiku Tesso need to leave alone the Oromo youth and find ways how to protect the wealth he had accumulated by robbing the Ambo Oromians.

If nothing else, Mitiku Tesso need to remember how his own poor Oromo parents raised him. His parents didn’t have to kill any one inorder to send him to school. They rather burned Laaftoo trees to make coal and sold it, made money and paid for his education.  Or, they probably made pots out of clay and sold it along some cow manure and paid for his school. Now Mitiku has developed extreme emotional attachment to the dream of becoming an ambassador without pondering on the idea that there is evil in his dream of becoming this pivotal figure at this stage of his life. To begin with, he is about to pass through a doorway into another level of existence and what should be most important to him shouldn’t to become an ambassador at the cost of the Oromo youth life. If I were him, I would worry about the legacy I am leaving behind.  Dr. Mitiku need to realize that he is standing between past and future at this moment.  If he is afraid to recall his memories of the past, of course future dreams will overshadow his decisions of today. One way or the other, there is an end to life and Dr. Mitiku shouldn’t forget that some day he would succumbed into cancer and kidney failure and die even if he becomes an ambassador.

  1. Did you hear Dr Mitiku’s interview on VOA? He is a very incoherent coward. His tone has no confidence or authority in it. He just tries to appease his TPLF masters by taking part in killings of Oromo students once again. If the situation gets tougher, he will be one of the cowards who will run away. Of, cowards are the most cruel individuals.

  2. Thank you Dr. Rundassa for pointing out Dr. Mitiku Tesso’s shameful act . Yes for now he took advantage of the death and suffering of poor Oromo youth but what he didn’t realized is that the era of being a Chiwawa dog is over once & for all. Dimos.

  3. Thank you Obbo Rundasaa for this report for it gives us much more awareness, knowledge and helps us keep not only the memory of our beloved oromo nationals who sacrificed their lives for freedom and justice to others.
    It also helps us to know who is/are the causes for the loss of innocent lives and the suffering of the thousands of Oromos in the hands of the wild enemy. If not today, the time will come when the butchers will be brought to justice that is why we need to keep records of the enemies and collaborators . The ignorant enemies of Oromo sons and daughters forget that the rising sun can set, Babylon has fallen, Roman Empire’s mighty collapsed; the apartiad regimes never lasted, Derge’s Military power did not keep Communist regime continue to rule by bullet. People’s unified common purposes and justice will be victorious over the Evil doers.
    So let anyone who has records on those individuals who kill, torture, displace and do any kind of harm to Oromos follow Obbo Rundas’ example and expose them so that our people will from now on know who is who at this trial time.

  4. Thanks a lot for your genuine articles. Dr. Mitiku is ignorant of what a hell is happening to Oromo nation. Surely we will pay the price of his act

  5. Diinni qabsoo keenyaa gosa lama. Tokko gita bittuu habashaati. Isaanis gosa lama. Ka durii fi ka ammaa. Diinni lammaffaan Oromoota maallaqan bitamanii Oromoo miidhani dha. Hundumtu balleessaasaa wajjin kan gitu adabbii argachuu qaba.

  6. WoW! Dr. Mitiku sends his own children to USA schools and bought them a house there but he has been the key player in killings and imprisonment of other people’s children. He is a selfish coward!

  7. I than the author for opening up discussion on Mitiku Teso.

    Oromo folks who know Mitiku Teso, in person, will tell you that Mitiku’s latest behaviour and his action wouldn’t surprise them. Because Mitiku, let alone up holding the well-established and time-honoured ethos & dignity of the university or higher education standards, he doesn’t have an iota, a scarp, of self-respect for himself. From his university years, based on his actions, if one compares Mitiku to donkey who carries TPLF flour, or homeless-street-dog who lives on scavenging rubbish from dust-pins, wouldn’t be an exaggeration. Quite the reverse, it would be an insult to these innocent god’s creature animals, i.e. the unfortunate donkey and the homeless dog.

    Mitiku knows for fact that security forces are not supposed to be in the university campus because student are asking lawful questions and requiring answers from the power that be, much less, killing them.

    I tell you why I say Mitiku knows this. During the Derge’s late years, students wanted to do research for their final year project. The students were Oromo students. Like any major Oromo university, the University was surrounded by Oromo farmers. However, one of the cadres in the University complained to the authorities that these final year students shouldn’t do their research among Oromo farmers because of Oromo political activities/OLF and asked the authorities to make alternative arrangement. The authorities got in touch with the doctor in charge, who happen to be an Oromo and they spoke to him.

    Hearing this new; the doctor hit the roof. He was fuming, infuriated and livid that such question even put to him to stop the project. This Oromo doctor, who is a giant of a man, contacted someone by the name Ato Belilign Mandefrow, who used to be vice-president of AA university, who was then high official in the Derge and told him if the student program was affected by any means, I’m going to resign and you have to replace me with immediate effect. Belilign Mandefrow came to the doctor’s office, begged him not to resign, calmed him down and the students were able to finish their research programme. University academics are supposed to uphold the ethos and well established University status as this great Oromo doctor did. As himself a final year that year, Mitiku know this. Because it the Oromo doctor who made it big news on purpose.

    In Mitiku’s case it isn’t about research. This is deadly. It’s about killing future generation. Mitiku is part of the killing machine.

    Heard about the idiom that says “Cuckoo in another bird’s nest”. Similar, Mitiku is a TPLF cadre in the University president’s office. He doesn’t belong there. As simple as that. I hope two or three of the brave souls of Ambo residents/students get their hand on Mitiku and take him to the banks of Huluka river and do some of their own water-boarding exercise on him. That will teach him a lesson or two. (For those who don’t know, Huluka river is a river that runs through the city of Ambo and where the residents of the city take a bath/shower in Ambo mineral water, which is one of the bounties of mother Oromia-for which our kids are being killed).

    Finally let me conclude with this famous quote about the important of work to achieve stated goal. It says “A pig isn’t fat because you weighed it.” If you were a pig fattening farmer, there is no point in keeping weighing the pig every day. Because your weighing doesn’t make the pig fat. To fatten it, you have to do the ground work, i.e. feed it, water it and make life comfortable for your pig so that it gets fat.

    Similarly, it isn’t enough to wish freedom and liberty. It just doesn’t happen because we wished it. To achieve it, we have to put the necessary work-in. Throw everything we got at achieve the objective. Wishing alone isn’t enough. Everybody has stake and hence a role in this common endeavour.

  8. Dr. Mitiku is an opportunist and a hypocrite. While he sends his child to attend school in the US, he is collaborating with the fascist TPLF regime to implement the genocide of the Oromo people. I do hope that he will come to his senses in this chapter of his life and stop being the condom of the Tigre mafia regime. Kun yoo ta’uu baate, qeerroon Ambo afaan isaaf galuun isa dubbisuu qabu.

  9. Good job! It is high time people ridicule and embarrass collaborators of the TPLF murderers. It’s is easy to make their lives as uncomfortable as possible. They must not live among people comfortably while taking part in killing innocent people. They should be exposed to the people and the world at large.

    Dr. Mitiku does not even act as self-respecting person, let alone to lead a university. Among others, it is unbelievable, when stated that “…the soldiers (Agazi) won’t leave the university. If there is a need for leaving, you (students) and I will leave the university before the soldiers (Agazi)”.

    How do TPLF thugs find individuals who literally stop using their Allah/God/Waaq given brains to get some financial benefits or steal from people?
