The Ninety Five Percent Ethiopian Diaspora

Tedla Asfaw
Ato Lidetu Ayalew's attack on the Diaspora using his "Third Way " launchers was carried out using Ande Ethiopia Radio in Washington D.C on May 20.

His target was to liberate the 95 percent innocent Ethiopians who are hostage to the 5 percent old politicians of EPRP and MEISON who are using the radios and Internet on their hands to misinform the majority.

The old timers he said are not learning from their past mistakes and wanted the country to go down with them and however Ato Lidetu said we the people have to liberate ourselves from these groups before we even think of making a difference in the Ethiopian politics.

Lidetu Ayalew the majority Diaspora Ethiopians to follow on his foot steps and reject these old timers and follow him to the land of freedom under his young and bright vision.

Ato Lidetu as we know Ethiopians back home rejected him and his time to get attention here in North America and Europe is understandable.

He categorically accused the Diaspora political movements that they were behind boycotting the
parliament after the stolen election two years ago and same allegations were heard from Jandyi Freezer two years ago on Straight Talk Africa program.

On my comment on that program I informed her that she was wrong to blame the Diaspora Ethiopians for the political mess in Ethiopia and the elected parliamentarians were forced to boycott the parliament after they heard the call of their people who elected them.

Jendyi Frezer did not reject my argument and however our young leader Ato Lidetu is insulting the Ethiopian people as if they are not capable of deciding on their future.

The Diaspora Ethiopians are not silent like he tried to characterize and are active and participating and educating the foreigners about the plight of Ethiopians back home.

It can be said without exaggeration that the Ethiopian Diaspora activity is more than any other
Diaspora's activity in any scale you measure it.

Ato Lidetu Ayalew should go on his attack until he finished his ammunition and we know that no one takes him serious.
