If Germans Decide to Erect a Monument for Adolf Eichmann...Kiflu Hussain Salem-News.com
Since May 1991, we have a bunch of sellouts in the Menilik Palace who do the bidding of our worst enemies.
(UGANDA) - Kenyans who were tortured during the Mau Mau uprising against British colonialism successfully filed a petition recently at a British court for compensation. The government of Kenya assisted these Kenyan veterans in their bid to seek redress from their former colonial master that had wronged them so much.
By contrast and in a way that reminds us of our own proverb “unless you’ve contempt for the owner, you don’t mess with his turf,” the current Italian government emboldened by the unpatriotic stance of its counterpart in Addis Ababa that turned Ethiopia into a landlocked state among other numerous treasonous acts, erected a monument for Rodolfo Graziani.
He was Mussolini’s top Fascist who ordered and caused the massacre of 30,000 Ethiopians in Addis alone on February 17, 1937 thereby earning notoriety as the "Butcher of Ethiopia" - in addition to being known as the "Butcher of Fezzan" (Libya).
Can you imagine for the Israeli government to be indifferent if Germans decide to erect a monument for Adolf Eichmann?
At present, we Ethiopians not only have indifferent “Ethiopian” rulers. Rather, since May 1991, we have a bunch of sellouts in the Menilik Palace who do the bidding of our worst enemies, some of whom have been blacklisted by history as war criminals and criminals against humanity.
Just yesterday, March 17, 2013, the Ethiopian regime rounded up scores of Ethiopians who attempted to peacefully protest the erection of a monument to a Fascist criminal in front of the Italian Embassy in Addis.
Ethiopian social and political commentator exiled in Uganda
Kiflu Hussain is an attorney based in Uganda. He says his passion for writing came from reading, and that it’s inevitable that the more one reads, the more one develops the urge to write. Kiflu has published articles in Ethiopia on the English Reporter, then a weekly newspaper along with a few Amharic articles on the defunct Addis Zena. It was after he and his family found refuge in Uganda, that he began contributing writings to the local papers and various websites such as Daily Monitor, Uganda Record, The New Vision, Ethioquestnews, Garowe Online, WardheerNews etc.
The reason for this is clear. Ethiopia, despite being a seat of the African Union had never produced a regime that allows even the minimum space for dialogue that other people in Africa enjoy so naturally. So Kiflu's ending up as a refugee in Uganda is a blessing in disguise for it accorded him with the opportunity to write. He says at the same time he learned, unfortunately, that his refugee status would be what showed how deep the hypocrisy of the “international community” goes. We at Salem-News.com are honored to carry this gentleman's work and we hope that in the process, western people may come to appreciate the struggle of refugees throughout the world.
