1/8 Thread on #Article39 & its consequence

Now that the #ProsperityParty is formed, which seems to be the final phase of formalisation of the “#SoftCoup, it's worthwhile to discuss about what will happen to #Article_39 which is one of the key sections of the current constitution
2/8 Some may feel that the #Article39 matter is a sensitive/difficult issue which shouldn’t be discussed now. However, the ongoing unpredictable & confusing moves by the current govt makes this matter highly critical which needs to be discussed/considered now than ever before.
3/8 So, here is my two cents on the likely scenarios & consequences should the government attempts to abolish/amend #Article39:

About @PMEthiopia and the deteriorating situation in #Ethiopia. This is a deconstruction of the genesis of PM Abiy's rise and how his methodical plans to gain power have a direct implication on what is taking place right now. Read this as a thread. /1
First, it must be acknowledged that @PMEthiopia did not rise to power in a vacuum, there was no miraculous ascension to the "throne", Instead, Abiy was always the byproduct of outside interference, the same foreign intervention that gave rise to the era of the #TPLF /2
Bureaucrats like @CohenOnAfrica, Brzezinski, Kissinger, @madeleine and Susan Rice have worked for decades to destabilize #Ethiopia and induce tribalism among Ethiopians. If you need proof of this, refer to Cohen's racist tweet yesterday where he vilified #Amhara people /3

During the civil war in #Ethiopia, the Marxist Mengistu regime --with the largest standing army in Africa-- used food as a weapon of war against Eritrean and Tigrayan rebels and their sympathizers. They waged a brutal starvation and bombing campaign against civilians for years.
The most characteristic feature of the war has been indiscriminate violence against civilians by the Ethiopian army and air force. The army deliberately killed and wounded tens of thousands of civilians and the air force bombed civilians and civilian targets. #Tigray #Eritrea
In both #Eritrea and #Tigray, aerial bombardment has caused massive loss of lives, property damage and displacement, and forced cross-border relief convoys to restrict movement to nighttime hours only. REST aid convoys and feeding centers were all targets of the bombing.
