TPLF is about to make its 7th mistake — Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed


ADDIS ABABA, JANUARY 10, 2022 — Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) is preparing for yet another round of attack which the Prime Minister called its "7th TPLF mistake".

During the inauguration of the Ministry of Defense headquarters yesterday, rhe Prime Minister said TPLF is provoking Ethiopian forces who have stood their grounds from left and right.

He said when his government decided to apologize to Ethiopians during the hours of change in 2018, TPLF refused follow suit and made its first historical mistake.

The second mistake the Prime Minister cited was when Prosperity Party (PP) was formed. He said had the TPLF truly stood for the needs of Tigrayans, it would have either stayed within PP or could have at least divided itself and remained partially within PP. This has brought a lot of problems for the TPLF.

The third mistake was the election it carried out in Tigray which the Prime Minister referred to it as a "sham" election. 

The fourth mistake he mentioned was the attack the TPLF carried out on the Northern Command. 

The fifth mistake, according to the Prime Minister, was that the TPLF decided to start war in Amhara and Afar sacrificing many lives.

The sixth mistake the TPLF made was its decision to capture Dessie without having the necessary logistics, organization or planning. The Prime Minister said the group moved towards Dessie blindly as if things would be a walk in the park. 

PM Abiy Ahmed used these explanations to justify his government's decision not to enter into Tigray. He said just because one has won, it does not mean he must move blindly. He said his government has learned this from the mistakes of TPLF.

Although, the federal government has ordered Ethiopian forces to hold their ground, the Prime Minister said TPLF is still not sitting down. 

"It is provoking us from left and right. The TPLF will never achieve victory but it is aimlessly endangering the lives of Tigrayan youth and making yet again its seventh mistake. Although, it is up to the TPLF to learn from its mistakes, I want to warn them to desist. If you don't desist, we will as usual inflict heavy punishment upon you", warned Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

Even though the Prime Minister has not mentioned the exact TPLF provocation, there are reports of TPLF attack in Alamata and near Kobo in addition to the groups repeated provocation to find a passage through Wolkait and Humera to Sudan.

However, so far most of the methods of resistance that the Ethiopian government has followed seems to be airstrikes in Tigray where TPLF forces, reportedly, are reorganizing disguised as IDPs, humanitarian workers in humanitarian vehicles. The TPLF had already used such tactics in Amhara and Afar. It had used civilian infrastructures such as schools and places of worship as military camps so as to avoid attacks.

EXCLUSIVE: Dr. Tedros’ Misconduct Defiles The WHO & Disrespects His Compatriots

This objective observation alone should be enough to relinquish him of his duties. The longer that he remains in his role, the worse that the WHO and its UN parent organization’s reputation will become. By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst Ethiopia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs filed an official objection to the misconduct practiced by World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. They drew attention to how he’s consistently abused his high office to meddle in his homeland’s internal and foreign affairs. He’s also accused of continuing to remain a member of the terrorist-designated TPLF that’s responsible for bringing untold suffering upon millions of people in northern Ethiopia as a result of the war that it started in early November 2020. Furthermore, the objection details other examples of Dr. Tedros’ misconduct. For instance, he’s accused of inflating the emergency level in Ethiopia in order to warrant a humanitarian interven

EXCLUSIVE: The Nobel Committee Has A Mistaken Assessment Of PM Abiy’s Commitment To Peace

With all due respect to this prestigious organization, the Norwegian Nobel Committee needs to reassess its understanding of the ongoing situation in Ethiopia. It’s the TPLF, not PM Abiy, that’s responsible for continuing the war. By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst Chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee Berit Reiss-Andersen said in a statement to AFP that “As Prime Minister and winner of the Peace Prize, Abiy Ahmed has a special responsibility to end the conflict and contribute to peace. The humanitarian situation is very serious and it is not acceptable that humanitarian aid does not get through sufficiently.” This is a mistaken assessment that’s inconsistent with the facts. PM Abiy has consistently worked towards peace in his country but it was victimized by a US-led Hybrid War of Terror waged by TPLF proxies who wanted to seize power at all costs. Even so, the Ethiopian leader still recently made enormous strides towards that end following the TPLF’s c

"The official talk is as if we were in postwar period. But as we speak now TPLF is again brutally attacking our people in Raya and Mai-Tebri. I have received reports that TPLF soldiers massacred civilians in Waja and Addis-kegn villages of Raya", said Belete Molla, Minister of Innovation and Chairman of the opposition party National Movement of Amhara (NAMA). Brook Abegaz, another opposition figure who ran in elections independently in Wollo, said that TPLF forces have already captured northern part of Raya and Wag and he said they have already started building trenches.
