Ex-ONLF rebels in Ogaden learn new skills
Former rebel fighters with the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), which has battled for decades against the government for an independent state for ethnic Somalis in Eastern Ethiopia, are learning new skills to make fresh starts.
As you are all aware the extremists and their media outlets have been churning all kinds of lies hoping such negative news will tarnish the EPRDF govt and the system. Lately, these lunatics have been trying to put wedges between the National Security Officials and also between METEC and other Front Organizations. They do this by massaging tiny truth in to a big lie!.
The truth: Berhane Kidanemariam of EBC will be leaving his current post for another post due to health reason.
As for the big lie: Isaias Woldegorgis has not been replaced nor removed.He is still part of the team. You should know EPRDF is going through tough times in reforming and fighting corruption. Expect such negative news to intensify as the reform moves forward. We will try to share what we know but try not to believe what you read on the many social websites at face value.
