US Special Envoy Feltman to make last-ditch effort to save TPLF

ADDIS ABABA, JANUARY 06, 2022 – The United States Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa Jeffrey Feltman will be visiting Ethiopia today amid reports of his departure from his post as a Special Envoy to the Horn.

Fetlman has become very unpopular among Ethiopians due to his attempt to reinstate the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) back to power. Today's visit marks the Special Envoys last attempt to rescue the infamous TPLF which was designated terrorist group by the Ethiopian Parliament in May 2021 along with its partner Oromo Liberation Army (OLA).

Unlike Fetlman, Ethiopians including the government does not see the TPLF as a force for good especially after its fighters recently massacred thousands of civilians, raped women and destroyed thousands of civilian infrastructures in Amhara and Afar without taking into consideration the atrocities it committed during its brutal 27 year rule on Ethiopians.

Feltman’s approach as a Special Envoy was manipulative and full of threats. In his November speech, he threatened Ethiopia that it will go down in a 20 year civil war unless it comes into terms with the TPLF.

Nevertheless, Ethiopia said it will happily welcome Feltman as he makes his last visit to the country on the eve of the Ethiopian Christmas.

Dr. Legesse Tulu, Government Communication Services Minister, said his country will welcome and discuss with Feltman as long as what he presents is beneficial to Ethiopia and does not interfere with Ethiopia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Reports indicate that as a replacement to Feltman, David Satterfield will take the post of Special Envoy to the Horn of Africa. David Satterfield was a US Ambassador to Turkey who was declared persona non grata in October 2021 for meddling in the internal affairs of the country.

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.
