Prime Minister Abiy on Tigray war: From will “wrap up soon” to “fighting on 8 fronts”



“For instance, in our first operation against the Junta, it only took us three weeks.

It (the junta) used to have a uniform, its place was known and it fought using all armaments.

The Junta which we had eliminated within 3 weeks has now mingled in the farmers and started moving from place to place and now, we are not even able to eliminate it within 3 months.

Eliminating an enemy which is visible and eliminating an enemy which is in hide and operates by assimilating itself with others is not one and the same.

It is very difficult and tiresome. We have conducted a wide operations in the last three days and we have caused a heavy damage to the enemy of the people and weakened its capacity seriously. And this will be strengthened and continued.”

Currently, the national defence forces and the federal forces are in a major  fight  on 8 fronts in the north and the west (parts of the country) with the enemies which are anti-farmers, anti-civilians and caused strife among Ethiopians and are paying a sacrifice.”

How different this is from PM Abiy’s confident prediction of 9 November 2020

As a colleague pointed out – it is almost as if PM Abiy has never heard of guerrilla warfare.








  1. Abiy’s statement is quite bizarre. After all, he joined the rebellion against the Derg, as a child soldier (unless it is a lie). For most of his soldiering, Abiy certainly fought in rural areas, among farmers, and with no boots and no uniform to identify him. Abiy certainly didn’t look like his recent photograph with his bodyguards; clad in a fancy-looking military outfit, boots, and dark glasses. The days of his sojourn with the ramshackle army are forgotten.

  2. Some Facts are more facts. The alien killers are facing the same fate in Tigray. They even are not capable to stop nor to scope. Tens of thousands are being war causalities. Their armaments are burning to ash.

  3. Truth always catches up with any one trying to dodge it. Besides this universal truth triate forcing him to speak in contrasting lingua than yesterdays’ Abiy got his own tactics. He believes if he tells selected truth now and then – which by the way he dislikes very much as it doesn’t support his crooked vision of becoming THE KING – the west will bow to him and the discontinued cash will flow in again: An income he can’t afford his tigray- cleansing with out.

    an Ethiopian from the long marginalized

    The world should be aware of what ever he admites as the main reason behind it is a tactic to advance his own agenda!
