    Daud Is always confused. So I wasn’t surprised to hear him say “confusion kessatti”. But, the fact was, during the charter he was a commander of OLF army of the Western front and he cannot blame anyone for his failure. Why did he let the army he commands not to have a clear command, especially in 1992 when they need it the most. Why did not he refuse to take orders from Leencoo if he knew that the orders were endangering the life’s of freedom fighters. All he did was to refuse to take responsibility for mistakes both as military commander and OLF chairman for the last 20 yrs. I would be not surprised, because I know for long time that Daud Ibsa is not man enough to admit his mistakes.

    June 10, 2012 @ 10:21 pm

    Dhugaa jirtuu fi kan nu hunduu beeknu nuuf mirkaneessuu keetiif galata qabda Jaallee Daa’ud. The OLF army was indeed in confusion. On one hand, their leader, Leenco Lataa, was negotioating with enemy and with Western diplomats. Refusing his order would be wrong organizationally. It would have led to crisis and breaking the command relationship, giving the impression that the organization has no control and command center. So, they chose to obey Leenco’s single handed decision – which we now know led to disaster. How sad failure of historical unparallel proportion. Sad! Sad!

    It is good to hear from Dawud Ibsa too. We have heard enough from his bosses and closest comrades, Leencoo and Diimaa. Nonetheless, there are some facts he did not want to touch. Pleases, Ibsaa, disclose those facts if you want to maintain the “honour bestowed” upon you.

    What would Galaasaa Dilboo say on the last minute? Does he have what to say on Bilisummaaa Oromoo as the first symbolic Secretary of the OLF? Or does he want to pass away with those symolisms? Please, Radiyoo Afuura Biyyaa, search for this important man, Galaasaa Dilboo, and press him to give us the symbolic history of his position and the ordeal time he endured under the conspiracy of Leencoo Lataa and Isayas Afeworqi

    Many thanks, R A B for letting us to listen to the Dawud Ibsaa’s voice. The judgement is ours.

    Daud is out of touch and even doesn’t know he has failed. He has put the organization in a deep ditch and tries not to take any resonsibility. He still hallucinates that the Oromo people is with him. Please, come back to your mind and be part of the solution to bring back pride to the Oromo people.

  31. BenGamaar said,

    June 11, 2012 @ 10:00 pm

    If every body in OLF says he/she does not now how decisions were made during the charter, who will be held responsible for the consequences of those decisions? Daud is repeating the same confusion that other leaders confessed on various media. I wonder if they qualify to be called leaders.

    Obbo Dawit blamed all dysfunction and paralysis he presided over on geopolitical aspect of the problem. We now have a leader who has been in power for the last fifteen years and take no responsibility as an individual person in the organization let alone as a leader. Obbo chairman do you remember joint radio interview you gave in Addis Ababa with a TPLF representative on the encampment issues. I remember the word you used in Amharic let me remind you Mr chairman if you are as you put it “confused” you said ” beqin libbonaa begaaraa kassarraan maftehew qallaal new”. In my recollection’ you were part of the encampment and you defended it. Lencho Leta, Diima Nagawo, Bayan Lenco2 all accepted their share of what went wrong. did you do that? You remember what you to J/ Dhugaasaa’? You called him and his group OLF fuction of enemy agent do you now stand by that? You are the only leader who over saw tribal friction in national libration movement more than anyone else. Do you accept that as a fair criticizim? You showed no leadership to unite the Oromo at home and abroad. The Oromo people expect of you better. The interview was an opportunity for you to explain your vision and how you intend to advance the cause of the Oromo people going foward you didn’t. Instead, you dispatched your dabbellee to do what they did at the QC, walabua

    “Kan qaban qabaa hin guunne; gadhiisan bakkee guutti” jedha Oromoon. Otoo hundii keenya walakkaa obbo Daawud Ibsaa illee hojjennee bilisummaan fagoo hin turre. But, we chose ‘slanderous talks’ that bilisummaa now seems a ‘day dream’.

    Hawwinee Barii, u better seek an advice from someone. You used to attack obbo Daawud personally, but, now it seems you are blaming him for heeding Leencoo’s advice during that so-called transition period. If he ever heeded that advice from the then his boss, obbo Leencoo, I don’t say any problem, and that wouldn’t be a pretext for u to spread slanderous accusations about him, because the whole world follows the same chain of command. I am not saying obbo Daawud is mistake-proof. But, I am on his side for at least his is doing the great things that the whole Oromo people aspire to see one day in future. I think you may hold some grudge against obbo Leencoo. Let bygones be bygones. Move forward!!!!!!

    I’m so sorry for those who died before contributing enough to the aim of the struggle of their people! I wish some who still live only to give us and their people such difficult times have died like / before / them!

    In real sense, they dis-honored the aim of these gallants, decapitated their people’s strength, and dismantled and destroyed the force of their struggles and left them only with a bare shameful face in front of the world and their enemies like that!

    Leaving that to the verdict of history and their people however; I only have short and precise words and questions for J/ Dawuud Ibsaa hereafter!

    1.If the aim of the struggle you lead for the last 14 years is for ” Sovereign Oromoia Republic”,/ keeping kaayoo ganamaa , / why you couldn’t cooperate with the QC ABO, and ULFO then, or right now?
    2.Are you still waiting for Obbo Lenco to tell you what to do with the other ABO forces even after he left you in the empty space, and sat in the endless meeting with your defiants of different forms and times in order to compete with Kamal Galchu’s force as who would first enter Addis to earn the income that winning the championship brings him?
    3. Are you aware of the once disappointed people with your moves and stood outside any camp of the divided ABOs so far for more than 10 years, are now ready to join the joint forces of any Oromo organizations with clear aim of liberating oromiya are standing against the conspiracies going on in Minnesota and Norway headed by the two renigades ? They are waiting for you guys actions of jointly organizing and moblizing the resources that includes financial and human capacities, to rescue the continuation of the struggle and the very existence of our people? That has been the true call of urgency even before the calls they got from the different interviewees, for the fact that, these individuals felt that they are reaching the point where no more they can tolerate alienating themselves from the struggle of their people who’re steadily approaching eradication from the earth by the enemies and friends’ enemies right now.
    4. I don’t blame you or others at the time for not being able to get to know Mr.Lenco’s undercover mission, for almost everybody including I myself understood him clearly as he left the leadership position and sat down to write a brand new theory that his friends and masters told him to do right away in order to fit the Oromo program in the horn, so that their interest would be kept at the oromo’s costly expense. Here you go, he is still busy rushing to finish and conclude the mission they gave him 20 years ago to do, and he is in a hasty situation to give over the keys to the Habasha colonizers and their allies!
    5. Obbo Dawuud, are you still in confusion about what had happened in the past, and how to correct it now, and save the struggle you and your comrades sacrificed your lives for, just by following the intrigues and ill advice Obbo Lenco and his likings gave you, so that his golden social theory and the interest of his friends would be kept for ever on the grave of our people?
    6. Isn’t it too much to be cheated by someone once or twice, then still not knowing it up to third or more, and if so, wouldn’t it be equal to a serious insult for a hero and gentleman like you, that may even be a grave mistake if not considering it seriously; looked at the representation and the honor bestowed upon you?

    So, enough is enough, stop hesitating, look around, every oromo, in oromiya and in diaspora except for few who are confused by this troublemaker, like you yourself did in the past, are fully with the program of bilisummaa!!!! Liberation!!!!! NO LESS OR NO MORE!!!! Every body at least compared to the past, at the time I myself stood out of the green/ red / zones, leaving a free space to the so called politicians, thinking that they may correct the mistakes one day, and get back to get us on board, are left only with the choice of sacrificing their people along with its struggle, or joining the struggle and saving their people and its struggle. They are now waiting for you guys’ resolutions of leaving the verdict to the history and the people who are making history, and get up and get us one more time by leaving your points of differences aside. And that should be today, not tomorrow, or the day after. It would be too late then, so act today and now!!!!!!!!

    Oromiy will be Free!!!

    Hi all,

    Thank you so much obbo Dawud for every thing you doing for oromo people.

    The youth need more experience, past events and recent leadership of oromo struggle. Besides struggle teaching of experiences to next generation is as equal as moving the struggle forward. So we need more experience in written form (like books) or in medias.

    Thanks,

    Support the people!!! the true leader!!!
