Currently the biggest threat to Ethiopia's unity is Oromo extremism which vehemently rejects Ethiopia as a country & by extension mainstream Ethiopian history in lieu of a revisionist political narrative in which the Alpha & the Omega are Emperor Menelik II. This shortsighted...

Do not be fooled by the page @EthiopianHRC which closely resembles the @EthioHRC twitter handle created shortly after the death of singer Haccalu. The page is run by #OLF supporters to run propaganda to smear the #Ethiopia|n gov't & scapegoat Amhara security forces w/o evidence. ImageImageImageImage

➡️ Claimed the Al Nejashi Mosque in Tigray was damaged by...

➡️ Shares photos of dead people & claims they were murdered by the Amhara "Special Police Force" (citing tweets from Oromo extremists) which has never operated outside of the Amhara region.
