Ethiopia's coup attempt spells disaster for its democratic transition
The biggest obstacle to Ethiopia's transition to democracy came knocking this weekend. In what officials described as a coup attempt, the governor of the northern Amhara region Ambachew Mekonnen along with advisor Ezez Wassie were killed. The regional attorney general Migbaru Kebede also sustained heavy injuries. The country's chief of staff Seare Mekonnen was also killed by his bodyguard in his residence in Addis Ababa along with major general Gezai Abera.
Now that Ethiopia is almost there to be called a full-fledged failed state, it will be interesting to know which one of the current 'democratic process' sponsors will cry foul first to intervene with force! It is a public secret the game plan was to force TPLF to become entangled in this quagmire so it is blamed as the main instigator and invite outside forces to intervene but so far TPLF has resisted the temptation! Ethiopia is going down.It is so sad to see its politicians failing miserably. If these politicians think there is a good ending for them they are wrong.

At this point of uncertainty, however, hard it is to think coolly and rationally, we must for the sake of our historic land, the first home of the human species, use our public reason to assess the several scenarios which produced...
How did Ethiopia get here! Is there any Ethiopian on Earth who can be proud of what is happening in Ethiopia today? Were we not warned then? Why can't Ethiopians use hindsight at least and learn from all the displacements, all the killings and say enough is enough!
While regional leaders and army generals are killed in broad daylight, those clearly working with foreign agents and those leading mob justice politics are sleeping well in comfort. Absurd!
Former TPLF fighter and current Ethiopia Army Chief of Staff Gen Seare and former TPLF fighter and retired M.Gen Gezae Abera were martyred on June 22, 2019, in Addis Ababa. Death is nothing to these heroes since they have buried many of their former comrades to liberate Ethiopia! Also, if the killer(s) think their death will diminish and demoralized the proud people of Tigrai we have news for them! Even the daylight murder of thousands of innocent people at Hawzien did not deter the people to wage a just war! Seare's and Gezae's death will bring Tigreans together and will become another engine that will push the struggle to realize yet again another Ginbot 20 forward! The time has come for all peace-loving Ethiopians to face the menace of peace head on! They died on the same day all other martyrs are remembered- Eternal Glory to all Martyrs!

Ethiopia Media Proclamation - Draft
The draft proclamation will be presented to parliament soon to be enacted as law. The country is facing insurmountable difficulties to maintain law and order ever since the governing party the EPRDF became dysfunctional.
