Qophii Addaa: Gaaffiifi deebii Obbo Leencoo Lataa faana taasifame

Although there are interesting points raised by Leencoo Lataa, there are a lot of conflicting points. I hope the listeners will raise them.
1. He has deep hate for WBO although he mentioned that the Oromo enemies are on the verge of taking over the regime. He well understands that the regime structure, including the military and security belong to the Amhara elites. Instead of encouraging, as an old man, dialog between WBO and Abiy’s regime, Leencoo Lataa encourages annihilation of WBO by military means. That makes nonsense.
2. Leencoo Lataa still believes that Dr. Abiy is working for Oromo while his regime has continued killing, kidnapping, arresting, raping, dismantling the Oromo institution including Gada, is widely underway. For the Oromo there is no change, it is the same as under TPLF.
3. You name it, etc, etc. listen to Leencoo Lataa .

    This one of the weakest interviews ever heard. The veteran politician, Ob. Lenchoo, could have been asked key questions including the status of addressing the key/ fundamental questions of Oromoo struggle, at least some minimum. Interviewee was not asked to compare the situation of Oromoo today with the rest of the regions in the country. While strongly suggesting disarming the armed group in Oromia, he did not have a slightest feeling of the need for talking about how others are fully armed to their nose and potentially threatening the Oromoo struggle and and even survival as a people and a regional state itself. Sad enough, interviewee denied the human crises currently faced in his own birth place, West Wallaga.

    Astonishingly, mindbogglingly, ridiculous!

    I am held back by “saffuu” from stating my feelings here. However, the Oromo people must take note of the long way their struggle has come and the direction their quest for freedom has taken. ‘Those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it. Yet those who study history are doomed to stand by helplessly while everyone else repeats it’. Mind you, Obbo Leenchoo Lataa was around when Oromo leaders were meticulously eliminated in the 70s, 80s, and more importantly in 1992, when thousands of OLA personnel were encamped and slaughtered by TPLF/EPRDF while leaders, including Obboo Leencoo were let free to exist to safe heavens. William Shakespeare reminds us that: ‘there’s neither honesty, manhood, nor good fellowship in thee ….’.

    Above all, Obboo Leencoo, I personally have huge respect for your contribution to the Oromo struggle, and wish you well. Nevertheless, I am obliged to ask vital question: isn’t it time for your generation to retire, gracefully, and allow qeerroo and qarree to promote capable leaders from among themselves to lead our people towards their inalienable freedom? How long are we, “the generation used to injera and wat” (in the words of the renowned Oromo intellectual, whom I was fortunate to meet over two decades ago), be around to suffocate Oromo just causes?

    Oromo, qeerroo and qarree; the future belongs to you and your destiny is in your own hands. Never go back to sleep!

    Best wishes

    What has OMN become? amazing.
    Lecho Lata is trying to be the Late Negasu Gidada. He was one fool responsible for installing TPLF regime in Oromia in early 1991, until he found himself being their victim later in his life. Mixmixa ofiin dhaabani nama gubdii, jedha Oromon yo mammaku.

    Obbo Lenco is trying to be self-righteous. While he was trying to defend the OPDO government, he is at the same time trying to defend himself for the past failures some level against him, fair or not is another matter.
    Why I agree with him in call for synergy among Oromia forces, I am appalled by his position vis-a-vis OLA. Let me ask this question, Obbo Lenco and his OPDO leadership:- While you muster neither courage nor conviction in answering Oromia’s burning question, why are you so bent on disarming OLA? Why is this a priority? Whose question is that you answering in executing this mission?. Wasn’t this a mission given to you by anti-Oromo elements? Why is Col. Gammachu Ayyana in “GIZOT”? Weren’t you fulfilling the wishes of the likes of Prof. Mesfin Waldemariam who openly advise the Abiy government to send those they perceive as threat to ”Gizot”.
