Lencoo Lata and his Oromo Democratic Front is rushing to save TPLF from its inevitable down fall!

Lencoo Lata

By Abbaa Ormaa

Why is the rush Obboo Lencoo Lata?

Lencoo Lata once again sides with the enemies of the Oromo people and rushes to save TPLF from its demises. It is unfortunate to witness someone the Oromo people have considered their hero, despite his political naiveté and flaws (or expired politics), for long time destroying what is left of his diminished statue because of his oversized ego and arrogance.

In a span of short time, we have seen a dozen of meetings from TPLF and its surrogate central committees in the name of reform but the reality is it is a response to panics by the absolute rejection of the regime by the peoples of Ethiopia.

The TPLF-led regime never got the mandate of governing the country from the peoples of Ethiopia. It came to power by the barrel of guns and ruled for the last 26 years at the barrel guns. Obviously dies by the barrel of guns! Millions were ejected from their homes so that TPLF affiliated corporations scramble for the land in the name of investment. The only legacy it will take to grave is genocide, mass incarceration, corruptions, and ethnic colonialism.  The peoples of Ethiopia do not need to be told what ethnic colonialism is because they see and living under one in TPLF. Just in case,

 “Internal colonialism is the way in which a country’s dominant group exploits minority groups for its economic advantage. The dominant group manipulates the social institutions to suppress minorities and deny them full access to their society’s benefits. Slavery is an extreme example of internal colonialism, as was the South African system of apartheid.”

The TPLF regime is destroying a generation.

Every time the regime is squeezed by the gallant Qeerroo movements for freedom, TPLF loosens its leash on OPDO so that its moles go out and make these ridiculous statements to divert attentions from the true story. The story of what is happening inside TPLF’s corruption camp, its disintegrating army, and the more than million Oromo that are evicted from their homes and suffering and the tens of thousands of Oromo children without school as a result.

At the conclusion of the recent ten day marathon meeting of its central committee, OPDO announced Afan Oromo becoming a national language alongside Amharic, their readiness to engage with Oromo political organizations, war on cross-state line illegal trading, corruptions etc.  Without a single word how it is going to accomplish these laundry list of empty words. We all know that this does not even worth the paper it is typed on and the time of the poor secretariat.  Lemma is proving himself to be an empty barrel whose only mission is to slow down the slow death of his masters by slowing down the Qeerroo movement for freedom! Good Luck Lemma.

Lencoo Lata once again have shown his luck of judgment in rushing to embrace the empty rhetoric of OPDO and expressed eagerness to fly home as soon as he and his sidekicks find the next flight back home before the reading of the central committee’s press release on TV was even complete. What a disgrace!

One wonders why these handfuls of ODFiascos are so desperate that they fail to comprehend the reality on the ground. One would expect someone of Lencoo’s statue to ask fundamental questions that he sucks at any way. Why are Bekele Garba and his comrades still languishing in jail for bogus accusations if they are serious? Why more than a million Oromos displaced from their homes are not going back to their land and homes than searching for new homes? Why is Agazi still killing and mass incarcerating Oromo children?

Everyone knows that this is TPLF’s last stand to slow down its inevitable downfall.  The truth is Lencoo and OPDO cannot save this rotten blood thirsty regime.

Qeerroo can see this theatre for what it is and continue the march. Recently some in OPDO have been talking good talks for some time now and yet there is nothing to show for all the posturing. It is all hot air and to divert the Oromo people from their enemy, the TPLF. We now know that these individuals are godfathered and groomed by TPLF to do exactly what they are doing now, to use them as Trojan horses to undermine the Oromo struggle. They are TPLF’s insurance policy against the Oromo people. OPDO exists as long as the head of this Mafia group, Sebehat Nega, sees the use to keep them.

Oromia shall be free!


  1. Lencho is an enemy of the Oromo people. ALL HE WANTS is to go back and become a prime minister of Ethiopia which is a lifelong dream for him. He has no place in Oromo community, his wife left him and he is desperate to be known. HE contributed to the death of Baro Tumesa, he tried to kill many of the true sons and daughters of OROMIA. IN 1998/97 he begged Melse to reconcile with him at the expense of millions OROMO. He loves visibility let us not talk about him and forget a traitor.

  2. Lenco messed up your minds ! How many years are you going to talk about this man ? when are your going to step up to the plate and do something constructive ? besides complain about LL day in and day out ? what a shame ! The Oromo struggle has gone closer to what Lenco has envisioned via Merera, Bekele, Lemma etc…while the Diaspora Oromos ( MacDonald Patriots 🙂 are hanged up with the name Lenco. Jaartiin isuma bara abbaa gadaa dageette dubbatti jedhan. Please update yourself. Lenco is now irrelevant . but his vision outlived you. His vision of the country is going forward with QERROO ! Qeeroos are seeking political POWER !

  3. I was interested to read this article because the topic was very attractive but I stopped reading when I came across the phrase ” his oversized ego and arrogance”. No matter what who ever the person is, please respect people.
    pardon me if I am wrong.

  4. Hi Abbaa Ormma, the article seem too much emotional rather than rational. There was no any ethnic colonialism; if you want to earn readers try to be balanced and sincere writer.

    • You know what – do not kick about saying nothing or just something which lacks coherence and continuity. Well why not tell the Amharas we Oromos do not need them and will not ever. If they do need us that is Amhara problem and others problem. Go for the point straight head on do not waste time this is 2018 and us Oromos have so much problems right??? When will we be free and how can be we able to get poor Oromos educated enough to work or carve our own way out of this problems which have held us captives for long time. When and how can we enable ourselves stand on our own feet. Please focus your argument on Oromo problems and show some good or bad has visited us exhaustively. Try your best to justify what you are saying quote sources clearly. Our struggle has moved on. Inevitably some will be left behind and thats the nature of human history. Maybe Lench lata and the likes are of the sorts. But importantly what is way forward? Try to focus Qeeros on this. They have taken up more or have shouldered recently more than most. Endless meeting with out smart and clearly measureable outcome is pointless. Right now what is Qeeros objective? How are this objective laid out and what are laid strategies meant to achieve those laid out plans. What are ways of measuring its success. Please focus on one small step and try to work through that achieve or fail to achieve and move forward. Takebon next objectives. Work on this for limited period and evaluate it then move on to the item according to priorities. Always work to achieving one small objective at one moment. Do not please weave so much information on a small page and mix up issues. We are all of different of education and individuals understanding will therefore dependent on this issue partly. But also on the type of literature like above which seems just to rumble on and touch a lot on only one or two pages. Now coming back to Oromo problems where do we stand? I would like a movement towards empowering more. I do not want any one to be left feeling left out but right now Qeeros are patriotic pawns left we have. If overriding goal of the Oromo is to be free it really do not matter a such how we get there. But we want to get there right ….. if that is the case then I propose a party that will it’s strength mainly from the young but who will be supported by all the Oromo elders who have been leaders in one way or another. If we do this small step and rally around our Qeero party then Oromo masses will ask or demand all of us to support such a party. It is only a first step. Please try this I ask all.
