To read Awde Ethiopia – 19th Edition 
The military government of Mengisu Hailemariam, Derg, was known for
widespread killing of its opponents. Elimination of opponents was well
choreographed then. The first official victims were the sixty high
officials of Imperial Ethiopia thirty five years ago. Since then many
opponents lost their lives and we were accustomed to the accompanying
musics/ “Shilela”, the famous one was “Yefeyele Wetete/young goat Vs
tiger” , the trademark of Derg’s brutality.
However, the TPLF regime is totally different. It has its own
choreography. You do not hear official music/shilela before or after
killing of opponents. Killing is usually followed by seating down with
victim families and watch who is showing up and try to find out what
the public is thinking about the killing and possibly find other
The killing is also going slowly in many prison camps as we speak.
Young Oromo prisoners were gunned down few years ago under the cover
of prison riots, however, the most common method of eliminating
political opponents is by exposing them to unsanitary and deadly
condition inside the prison. One of such prisons is the malaria
infested Ziwaye prison where our beloved son Teddy Afro is rumored to
Why Ziwaye prison/ Abu Ghairb ? It is just to expose Teddy Afro to the
deadly malaria that took many prisoners lives in the past. It is also
a place where torture is carried out regularly far from witnesses and
we might not see Teddy Afro alive if he is sent to Ziwaye. We have to
expose the deadly scheme of TPLF before it is too late.
TPLF racists can not sleep well until they shut down Teddy Afro’s
mouth forever and that is why they are going to send him to his death
cell in Ziwaye. Teddy Afro is not a criminal to be sent far from his
families and millions of his admirers. TPLF wanted to preempt the
weekly visit of thousands of Ethiopians similar the elected Kinijit
leaders while they were locked up in Kaliti few years ago.
TPLF know that Teddy Afro has millions of followers, most of them
young who would like to see him each week if he is in Kaliti. When
Ethiopians are calling for Teddy Afro’s immediate and unconditional
release in last month Great Run, sending him to remote far prison not
to be visited is an insult to millions of Ethiopians.
Hate is a force that is driving Meles and his racist circles. They are
also experts in digging underground jails in Northern Ethiopia where
they kept many EPRP leaders like “Debteraw” and former Ethiopian army
high officials for more than two decades. The case of the Ethiopian
Air Force pilots we recently learned about is fresh testimony to that.
Meles and his inner circles had “Phd” in “prison management” and have
more than thirty years of experience on how to brake opponents spirit
using prison and in many cases these underground prisons also became a
burying ground for many Ethiopian patriots. Ziwaye Prison is not
underground but still run by the underground prison experts guided by
the thick prison book/constitution of TPLF.
Human Right Organizations should expose these prisons both underground
and on surface for international community and held those who run this
deadly enterprise accountable. Former TPLF founders like Ato Sieye
Abraha, Gebru Asrat and many others who now claim to be on peoples
side should expose the “prison industry” of Ethiopia they pioneered to
bring all who have blood on their hands to face justice.
