As the Oromo people resisted Ethiopian invasions, they confronted both Ethiopian soldiers and traitors, for example during Menilik (like Gobena), during Haile Selassie (feudal corrupted individuals with militia’s), during Derg era (derg military and traitors so called cadre) and now days- during Tigrai kingdom (OPDO’s militias and Opportunistic individuals). Through all political systems the power was/is in the hand of Habesha’s (Amhara and Tigrians) but the face of it on the local level is often Oromo’s. Despite these seeming contradictions, it remains insufficient to speak of Oromo responses to the imposition of colonial rule.
The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision. If I paint a wild horse, you might not see the horse but surely you will see the wildness. This paper discusses:
- why Oromo visionaries fail to see or understand the programmed killer mind of our enemies from time to time and still fulfilling enemy plan (destroying Oromo people unity, creating confusions and cultivating traitors).
- Oromo people need curative vision but not palliative ones.
Oromo people have a long standing of fighting for freedom. Our goal is to liberate our people from slavery and build the social justice where people are not be discriminated against, nor their welfare and well-being constrained or prejudiced on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliations, age, race, belief, disability, location, social class or socioeconomic circumstances.
Oromo people had and have a brilliant philosophers, thinkers, writers, orators, artist, organizers and athlete. But all those talents serves the so called Ethiopian destructive institution and criminal leaders instead of serving his own nation (Oromo people). All those knowledge’s went to serve and shape the permanent killer of our nation (Oromo people). Again now days there are many Oromo intellectuals and individuals are running and working hard like previous one to shape the collapsing empire by destroying Oromo people unity, by creating paralyzed organization and creating confusion between our people. Vision of victory
