The Tale of the Oromo Refugees: From Hell to Hadramout

by Magarsa Mukhtar, OPride HOA Correspondent*

June 24, 2012 (Opride) – More than 20 Ethiopian migrants caught while trying to cross into the de-facto breakaway state of Somaliland have been promptly repatriated back to Ethiopia, local Somaliland press reported.

Somaliland’s location, adjacent to the semi-autonomous region of Puntland, makes it an ideal transit point for migrants hoping to make the 1800km long, treacherous journey to the port city of Bosaso, where they would then board smuggler-run ships to Yemen.

With increased security along the border towns of Wajale, Gebilay, Allaybaday and Arabsiyo, Somaliland police and customs unit have detained Ethiopian migrants on several occasions in a series of measures meant to curb the entry of Ethiopians into the state. Read more…

Defeat-Mongerer-in-Chief, Prof. Ephraim Isaac, and Oromo Dialogue Forum’s Founder, Obbo Leenco Lata

Gadaa.com | June 24, 2012

(Note that the face of the third person in the photo has been disguised by Gadaa.com’s news-desk for privacy reason.)

The photo shows the “founder” of the Oromo Dialogue Forum (Waltajii Marii Oromoo), Obbo Leenco Lata (left), entering a meeting room with the company of Prof. Ephraim Isaac (right) in July 2011 in Minnesota. The reason of their meeting in Minnesota had not been disclosed to the public.

The Professor
Prof. Ephraim Isaac is the defeat-mongerer-in-chief aka Zenawi’s “peace-maker,” according to critics, who accuse Prof. Isaac of being TPLF’s handpicked “elder.” Among the Oromo, he’s well-known as the “elder” who negotiated Obbo Ababiya Abajobir’s decommissioning from the just struggle of the Oromo people for national self-determination, including and up-to independence.

Overall, in dealings Prof. Ephraim Isaac has been involved in so far, such as the Ogaden ONLF, Kinijit and the OLF/Ababiya-Abajobir cases, neither the peace has been achieved nor the issues have been resolved, though Prof. Isaac claims that he’s on a mission to peacefully revolve conflicts in the Horn of Africa by partnering with one of the worst dictators of the Horn of Africa’s recent history – Atse Zenawi.
