Where is Oromuma brotherhood? Why Gujii zone administration declared war on Borana community?

By Oromticha

cropped-Borana-fardaa1.jpgBorana and Gujii, the two closest Oromo communities well known to share numerous similarities, have coexisted without major conflict for centuries. However, recently this character has dispread and conflicts between the two communities have become a norm. While the driving force for these new phenomena is not clear, it seems to escalate the last twenty years. Particularly, the allocation of Liban wereda under Gujii zone has become a catalyst for the discontent in the region. Recently, the aggression initiated by Gujii militia against Borans inhabiting Liban wereda, particularly areas surrounding Negelle Borana town, has been deterred successfully. Previously Ardajila has consecutively reported about the change and reinstallation of Nagelle Boran town name. Thank you for your update. It is a public record that Gujii zone administration has been hostile against Borans inhabiting Liban warada. Particularly, they have been advocating for change of Nagelle Borana name by removing the word “Borana”. While the intension behind the hostile move by Gujii zonal administration and recently by their militia force is not clear, it is frustrating and hurting locals in the region, Boran, Guji and others impartially. Basically, Guji Zone administration obsession with this issue has slowed progress of the region dramatically. Above all the recent conflict indicates that the administration has given up all legal means and changing strategy towards use of force. Please, note that this comment is not analyzing a deed of Guji community, rather it analyze a deed of Guji Zone administration.

While Borana community has been experiencing unusual level of aggression from neighboring communities, within Ethiopia and Kenya, the hostility from Guji side came as surprise. It is well known that Borana community opted contesting against being governed by Gujii zone administration to avoid a conflict with their Oromo brothers and sisters. However, a replay from their administrators is totally opposite of their expectation.  As soon as Liban worada brought under Gujii Zone, a call for excluding “Borana” from name of Nagelle Borana town was officially initiated. This call has been going on for years without any response from Borana community. This could be understood as naïve response but it was conscious and deliberate action to avoid such conflict like the one witnessed recently. Lately, the Guji zone administration effort to change the name of Nagelle Borana town intensified, resulting in action that led to whitening of Negelle Boran hospital name board. The move awakened Borans and forced them to regretfully revisit their decision, compromising for sake of peace and above all Oromtiti. Accordingly, Borans initiated appeal to involve a federal government and Oromiya regional administration in to the matter.  The appeal got traction and it was decided the name Negelle Borana will remain on the deliberation made in March 2014. Sadly, few weeks after their legal defeat, the Guji Zonal administration took unforgettable action that will remain in the history of the nation, particularly the Boorana-Gujii region.

It is agonizing to witness such abuse of power by Guji Zone administration. While an attempt to change the name alone is a shock to many, particularly to Oromo community, waging a full scale war for such cause is heartbreaking.  In the era when names that have been changed hundred years ago are contested and reversed back, the case of Nazret to Adama, Hagerehiwoot to Ambo, Debrezeit to Bushofto …,  it is sad to witness such attempt being made by a member of Oromo community. Erasing the name of a particular Oromo group, in this case Borana, and trying to present them as a treat to Oromo society is unfair and wrong allegation. The saddest of all is that this backward view is shared by some educated individuals who are regarded as Oromo leaders. One of such individuals is Nageessa Oddo Dube, who has been repeatedly appeared on newly founded Oromo Media Network (OMN) as political analyst.  Before commenting on his view, I would like you to read and make your own judgment. The following is a direct quote from his April 3 at 7:54am face book post, which has sparked several negative comments from Borana and Guji individuals impartially.  I chose to comment on this writing not to give credit to Mr. Naageessa, but I am afraid this view could be shared by many other influential individuals from Gujii community. “Dhufuuni malaani dalatti” jedhe Boranii.

While Mr. Nageessaa Oddo started by appealing for ceasefire between the two communities, the body of his writing suggests the opposite. Basically his writing is a complete justification of the Gujii aggression against Borana. I found it troubling to realize that Mr. Nagessa Oddo could generate such backward and divisive thoughts in public. While he has full right to possess any personal view, he should select his words carefully before making them public. Above all, he and the likes of him, who are based in western world that are not directly affected by such conflicts, should consider the fate of others. Whether it is Guji or Boran community, those affected are our brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers, uncles and aunts and so on who are currently residing in the region. Thus, it is wise to think twice, or more if possible, before giving a comment on such sensitive issues.

First of all, it is unethical to cover-up a fact just because one has a means to do so. Anyone who has full information of the recent conflict between Boorana and Gujii knows who and how the conflict initiated. It is not fair to deny ownership of a battle after losing. Guji Zone administration initiated a battle to change the name of Nagelle Borana and lost. After losing a battle through legal means, they mobilized thousands of their militiamen to show their might. To their dismay, they failed in both fronts.  Now with assistance from the so called Oromo political analyst, Mr Nageessa Oddoo, they are trying to open another battle front, distorting the fact using an access he has on OMN.  I hope Oromo intellectuals are wise enough to avoid entertaining such divisive view in their circle.

While the first part of the writing aim to show a root cause of the recent conflict as a simple harassment of Gujii students and workers by Borana community, locals testify the opposite. The matter of the fact is that anyone lived in the region could testify the true character of Borana community, whether they could commit such atrocity against any one inhabiting their region. Borana community has hosted several communities from different ethnic group throughout their territory and there has been no such incident reported. However, it is a fact that whenever their generosity is misunderstood for weakness and other communities target their interest, Borans do everything possible to repeal it. This has happened several times before, with such incidents exceeding a normal level in the past decade, particularly the last few years.

Mr. Nagessa oddoo has squeezed several thoughts he has about Boorana community within his short writing. He used some of his writing to compare and contrast Boorana and Gujii community. While I am not sure of his intention, it seems Mr. Nageessaa is not comfortable with Gujii’s position as compared to Borana in several aspects. Thus he is trying to show to anyone who believes him that Gujii community is stronger than Borana. Since we are brothers and sisters, Boran’s have never pay attention to such comparison.

The most puzzling part of his writing is a claim that the name Nagelle Borana was assigned to the town by Governors Godana Tuni and Jatani Ali (Biyyeeni Sabladhinaafi (BS)). It is interesting that an individual holding a law degree would make such ignorant account of a well known fact. The name Nagelle Borana has been there prior to time of Emperor Hilesilase’s rule, long before the two leaders were born. On different post Mr Nageessa indicated that the recent conflict is an explosion of a time bomb planted by the Abyssinians. This is a bit confusing and made me question whether he regards Govs. Godana Tuni and Jatani Ali part of Abyssinia.  Anyhow, contrary to what he wrote, the three major Oromo communities in the region (Borana, Gujii and Arsii) could testify the opposite. The truth is that the two Governors are a major reason why the three communities coexisted without major conflict, during their era. If Govs. Godana and Jatani intended to promote conflict between Borana and Guji communities, they could have advocated for return of Borana lands occupied by Guji. Although Boran community ignored them, it is fact that Guji Community occupies Boran land such as Bitaata, Hara qallo, Kukku (Buelle Horaa) and others. Particularly, Mr. Nageessa and his colleagues have to give a credit for Govs. Godana and Jatani Ali instead of accusing them for cheap deeds like changing a name of a town. Although it could have been forgotten by some, our Gujii brothers and sisters affected could remember the atrocity committed against the Gijii community by Shaleqa Taakelle. Again it is a public record that Gov. Jatani Ali stood for Guji Community and helped bring Shalaqa Taakelle to justice, to be punished for his evil deed. These and several other unmentioned facts clearly show that Govs. Godana Tuni and Jatani Ali used their power to bring the neighboring Oromo communities together. However, weak leader like Gadaa Robe took advantage of his power and used it to promote divisive agenda. Thus, since anyone from Ethiopia, particularly Boorana-Gujii region, knows the truth, the only thing Mr. Nageessa proved through this comment is his ignorance. Actually, after reading his short writing, I am worried for a society that will be led by such individual. Whether it is Gujii or entire Oromo community.

The writing also addresses a political aspect in the region with regards to Oromo struggle. I am amazed on how much of political analysis Mr. Naageessa could make, leave alone for entire Oromo struggle, but just for Boorana-Gujii region. To suggest that an entire Garrii community has abandoned Oromo/OLF due to Borana involvement is a cheap talk. Since Mr. Naageessa do not represent or even possibly know a view of Garrii community, I would not take this as big deal. However, having such a figure as a political analyst for Oromo community is a disgrace. While the entire Oromo society has tied together with common interest, it does not mean all members agree on everything. If any member of Oromo could abandon the entire society due to disagreement with fellow Oromo, then that particular community may not have a faith in the society. While Mr. Nageessaa and those who share his view have such a strong negative feeling for Borana community, they did not abandon Oromo? Why is that? I believe to be born within Oromo is not a choice but identifying oneself as Oromo is a choice. Thus, our Garri brothers and sisters have a right to join any political party and society they feel will protect their interest. In this regard, it is a public record Garri community chose to align with Somali for one reason or another. However, their decision should not be blamed on any other community. Everyone should be responsible of his/her action. If any community regrets its previous decision and considers changing their view, no manipulation of fact is required. Just change sides and join a group or political party of interest period.

On the other hand Mr. Nageessaa’s fear for Gabras to leave Oromo/OLF is beyond puzzling. Actually, it is laughable, since they have never joined. It is great to express his fear. However, as an emerging Oromo figure, I wait to hear what he will advice Oromo society to avert this looming disaster; Gabra community abandoning Oromo/OLF because of Borana community. If his fear is real, the only solution will be expelling Borana community form Oromo to gain Gabra and Garri communities. After all Oromititi is not a gift that one could give to other.

Finally, we are in the 21st century and it is not easy to manipulate a fact. Even if one controls a particular medium, there are thousands of other means to counteract any effort to distort the truth. To this end, it is wise to think several times before putting any idea on mass media, for it may hunt you forever. Moreover, when dealing with sensitive issues that will affect thousands of lives on the ground, it is important to take a great care from spilling ones thought unfiltered.  On the other hand it is not possible to have it both ways. If one likes to be an Oromo leader, he/she must promote the interest of entire society not a particular group. Please note gaining access to publicity and delivering the expectation is totally different entity.

  3. After the launching of Oromo Media Network (OMN), I went back and look at the facebook account of Negessa Odoo. I also do a little bit background check on him from various sources including some of the discussions Negessa had on the OMN. I am impressed by his academic achievements and how articulate he had been on the analysis he gave on many occasions. I was also happy for the OMN for having such a smart young man who had untapped knowledge. I concluded by saying OMN, which is in its infancy, is the lucky media network to have a person like Negessa Odoo that can help the media to deeply entrench itself into the heart of its followers. That was what I was thinking.
    However, the recent posting on his facebook account says a different account than the one I perceived. For me Negessa, who is a law graduate, a champion of freedom for all Oromo people, the torch bearer in the struggle for libration, and the young and energetic leader, turned out to be a war monger and hate preacher. Negessa told us the Borana are the one who preemptively launched war one the Guji people. If that is the case, then how on earth could the Guji were able to occupy a village called Lag gulla and burned down more than a hundred houses and touched elementary school? The reason is because they are the once who took preemptive attack on Borana and put the Borana on the defensive position.
    The other point that tells us how war monger Negessa is the population statistics he came up with. He told us my people are four times larger than yours and we can crash you at anytime. That could be the mentality of other Guji’s like him who believe in war than coexistence. Negessa, we are living in the twentieth century and most of the issues are solved on the round table discussion. For you, as educated person, instead of preaching for peace, you are spreading the war of terror on your Borana brothers.
    Negessa is acting like a mad dog that runs from place to place. I know him as a Guji person but know he is talking about Garri. Garri is not part of this conflict that was commenced by Guji. They are living peaceful among the many tribes they are sharing natural resources with. It is empirical to say that Garri is Garri and not Oromo or Somali. This is not my account. You can go and ask Garri men all over the world. If you want to baptize them to make them what you want, then I wish you good luck.
    I believe as a college student you must have taken maths 101 including ‘additions’. Let me ask you a confidence building question; is 200,000 + 50000 < 500000. If you say yes, Negessa, you are right! You passed your maths question. If Garri and Gabra accepted their Oromumma, then they add more value in terms of number to the Oromo population. Is that what you want to tell us? That is according to your calculation which I still question where you get the statistics from. That number for me does not have value. What matters is peace and love above the objective which you stand for that is WAR, WAR and WAR! Is this how you should think Mr. Lawyer? Pushing Borana aside and seeking cheap popularity for Guji people is more of a sign of ignorance than maturity.
    It is also good to stay away from mentioning the Late Jatani Ali and Abboo Godana Tuni. These are our heroes for whom one day we will build statue for. They worked for the development of our region in a balanced way and promote peace and stability in the region. There were not major clash in their time similar the one we are seeing today that is waged by Gaada (the administrator). In that time, development was their mottoes. Negessa, you are trying to justify the war waged by Guji as the righteous. You also blamed Borana and their two heroes for Negale Borana name. You have the right to change Hageremariam to Bule Horra, Kibremengis to adola/shakiso and so on but leave Negelle Borana to the Borana. Many Ethiopians lost their life defending this town alongside the Borana.
    I want to stop here with a little bit of advice. For Oromo Media Network as much as I respect your genuine effort to disseminate balanced and objective information to your audience, please don’t over look the people who can bring unrepairable damage to your media. Negessa is not a kind of person you can partner with. He is war monger who stands for inciting violence among Oromo brothers. I believe this is against your mission.
    I would like to stop here by quoting from Mark Twain. He said “Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.”

  4. Akkam oltanni. Fhulla jirttan chufatti, nagga kabdhu.

    I am deeply displeased with the stance against creating a change on the name of a city that has been around longer than most of us. It is completely dishonoring and puts in place a level of belittlement onto the historical context that is Nagelle Borana. In order to change the name of city, group, or even individual there has to be a required legal measure as to why the name is being changed. What we have come across based on the information given above is a lack of responsibility and knowledge as to when Nagelle Borana was officially named. Making comments that attack not only a specific group of people, but the name of the land itself and waging it as a means of discrimination and separation when the common goal for all people is to come together in a stand for unity and wholeness is dishonoring. What was said instead is a stand for separation and a stand that seems to have an underlining intention embedded in its meaning. What we need is unity and respect for history and for each other. It’s not about personal interests and instead is about creating a space where respect, honesty, and responsibility is present. So, I urge all of us to take on that and when making comments have responsibility of what one is saying, respect for what others say and factual information, and honesty in saying what there is to really be said so there is a space where unity is present.

  5. Ardajila.com, on April 6 Nageessaa Oddoo Duubee blatantly attacked Borana verbally again and went to the point of associating Borana with the evil Menelik. I have replied to the false history he fabricated to defame Borana’s reputation, but as the truth I revealed and showed our other Oromo brothers angered him he deleted my comment and also blocked me on facebook. I would like to share what he shared on his facebook about Borana on April 6th and my reply to him that he deleted:
    Me: #Nageessaa Oddoo Duubee, You owe apology to the Borana and the entire Oromo people for fabricating false history and trying to sustain the conflict between the two Oromo brothers (Guji & Borana) and also for attempting to create war between Borana and other neighboring non-Oromo tribes in Southern Oromiya.
    #peaceandunityforalloromopeople
    Nageessaa Oddoo Duubee, #Halake J, there is nothing Nagessa fabricated. There are a lot of bad history and facts that has been done in the past with regards to alliances, which Ithink he kept for the sake of unity and solidarity of Oromo people…#Borenas have never fought aginst Habeshas. You have allied with Minilik. You have allied with Hailesellasie. You take #100 heads of cattles to Hailesellasie when he comes back from Englan after Italy left. All past governments armed you and make you fight against the #Gujii and the #Bale insurgents. You have been fighting against the Bale rebellion, agains the #Gujii Towra etc. Your excuse is that these people are armed by Ziyadbarre. You guys are friends of #Amhara.. You only opposed this Woyane government not because you felt the oppression but because the people who were on power during dergue such as #Jatani and #Godana are thrown away. You mistakenly joined the #Oromo struggle and are now regretted. Cause you have no experience of opposition. All you know is privilege during all the #Minilik #Hailesellasie and #Dergue. That is why the neftegnas like you

    Me: #Nageessaa Oddoo Duubee a.k.a Bareedduu Gujii, Even though you have been trying hard throughout this week to sustain the conflict between Guji & Borana Oromo and also attempting to incite conflict between Borana and other neighboring non-Oromo tribes in Southern Oromiya by fabricating false history, today you have finally openly displayed your absolute enmity and hatred towards Borana-Oromo and maliciously tried to defame them by labeling them as the ally of their long time enemy. From your statuses on both of your facebook accounts every one could see your ferocious attempts to attack the good name of Borana people and Boranaland by fabricating false history and uttering maliciously injurious words against Borana people. Over the past three days, you have been working hard on how to incite violence between Borana and other neighboring communities, manipulating and comparing Guji and Borana population and indirectly telling us that Guji’s are the majority and could destroy Boran. You have been gathering and manipulating population data according to your wish to belittle Borana by shamelessly saying Boran is “half million” and Guji is “two million” while Kenyan Borana alone is 1.2 million. By the way what is the relation between population number and the current issue of conflict between Guji and Borana? There is no relation other than indirectly alluding to “Gujis are the majority and could destroy the Borana people. You have been fabricating false history like “Garriin durii Oromoo chaarteriin booda eegii Booranii hangafa Oromoo ta’e nu Booranaa miti jettee Oromoo keesaa baate.” This is shameful utterance that is not expected from even uneducated person let alone you who claim to be an attorney! I am sure anyone who can read that two lines written in Afaan Oromo is wondering what kind of human being you are and laughing at you at the same time. According to you Garri is Oromo previously until they were fired by Borana from Oromo tribe during the charter period (in the 90’s), then to which branch and moiety of Oromo people did they belong when they were Oromo before the 90’s? What is the historical evidence and source of your information? You cannot answer these questions as your utternaces are purely false history and you blatantly fabricated this history this week to accomplish your hidden agenda of waging war on Borana by seeking alliance from non-Oromo neighbors of Borana people. You have been fabricating all these false history to incite conflict between Borana and their non-Oromo neighbors in order to seek their sympathy and accomplish your goal of “over 2 million people vs Borana people”. You have been working on all these ferocious wicked plan while our wise brothers and sisters who understand the value of “Oromumma” have been working on the mission of restoring peace between the two branches of one people fighting in the vicinity of Nagelle Borana. It is very unfortunate to find someone who claim to be an Oromo and work on dismantling our unity and commit such an impious crime against his own people. Your evil plan to spill Borana’s blood will be futile, and you will never succeed however you try!

    Today once again you have attacked Borana Oromo people by vomiting your venomous words against them by using your two facebook accounts. You even went to the point of associating Borana people with the evil Menelik due to your deep hatred that is burning inside you. You tried to make the cattles that had been forcefully robbed from our people by neftegnas like we gave willingly as a gift to Haile Sillassie. Neftegna had robbed all Oromo people around Oromiya during those years and Oromos know that and you can not fool anyone by saying Borana willingly gave Haile Sillassie cows while they were robbed of their cattle like any other Oromo people of that era. You falsely accused Borana to be ally of all past neftegna governments while we had been fighting all oppressors and still actively fighting today. You falsely accused Borana-Oromo to be against the Oromo Bale rebellion while our “manguddo” who are the living heroes of Bale rebellion are bearing witness that Borana people fought Haile Sillassie regime along them and helped them with all capacity. Who is Mohammed Haro? He is one of the Borana-Oromo heroes of the Bale Rebellion who is alive. He lives in the U.S. I hope you have seen him on OMN when he was telling the story of Bale Rebellion with other Oromo Bale Rebellion heroes during OSA conference. So, why are you trying hard to defame Borana people’s reputation by telling lies? You have been lying and fabricating false history against Borana People throughout this week to damage Borana’s reputation. Shame on you Abba Bahire of 21st century. Shame on you for telling lies! Please every Oromo man and woman, go to the two facebook accounts this man called Nageessaa Oddoo Duubee has been using to spread maliciously injurious message against Borana-Oromo. his two facebook accounts are (1. #Nageessaa Oddoo Duubee 2. #Bareedduu Gujii). This man has been using this two accounts to spread the false history he fabricated on Borana Oromo to incite conflict between Borana Oromo and neighboring non-Oromo communities in Southern Oromiya and Northern Kenya and also using both of his facebook accounts to utter maliciously injurious words to defame Borana people’s reputation. Please go to both of his facebook accounts and read what he has been preaching. For instance, he directly translated what he wrote on here in English from what he wrote in Afaan Oromo in his facebook account by the name #Bareedduu Gujii. He also answered to my comment on his #Nageessaa Oddoo Duubee fb account by his #Bareedduu Gujii fb account. As this man is currently in the United States, I would like to ask Oromo leaders in the United States to take action on this man who claim to be an Oromo and working on dismantling Oromo unity by:
    1. Fabricating false history in order to seek alliance from non-Oromo communities in Southern Oromiya and incite conflict between Borana Oromo on one hand and non-Oromo community and Guji community on the other hand.
    2. Fabricating false history on Borana.
    3. Working behind curtain to sustain the conflict between Guji and Borana while our elders, brothers, and sisters are working day and night to restore peace in the Nagelle Borana vicinity.
    4. Uttering false and maliciously injurious words against Borana Oromo to damage their reputation.
    5. Distorting Oromo history by accusing Borana people to be against Bale Rebellion while Borana helped their brothers who were fighting the oppressing Haile Sillassie Regime during the Bale Rebellion. There are our elders who are living Bale Rebellion heroes who will bear witness. Including Borana elder, Mohammed Haro, who was Bale war hero.
    6. Deliberately fabricating history by saying, “Garriin durii Oromoo chaarteriin booda eegii Booranii hangafa Oromoo ta’e nu Booranaa miti jettee Oromoo keesaa baate.”
    As such acts by such individuals have been one of the major impediments that weakened Oromo cause and unity in the past two decades, I would like to ask Oromo leaders and any Oromo who want our unity to flourish to scrutinize and take necessary action on this man called Nageessaa Oddoo Duubee who holds evil hidden agenda.

  6. Please ardajila.com, do not allow the undercover wayyaane agent like the one who commented above who call himself “Oromticha” and “Guji-Borana” to use your website to spread his agenda of dividing our people by taking this opportunity and he is also calling you names and ‘stupid’. Does ardajila.com’s regulation statement allow such non-sense from such ignorant people who rush to insult others? Delete the rubbish he vomited above. Thank you!

  7. Dear, Gujji-Borana
    I am not interested with your writing but I would force myself to reply to you on points because replying to your statement is not worthy at all. You underlined that Godana and Jatani were part of Abyssinia that is very interesting for the following reasons,
    1 If what you say is right all Oromo’s students of 1960s were part of Abyssinia
    2 All Oromo political leaders of today are part of those generations.
    3 I hope you are not vilifying all Oromos who participate in all former Ethiopia government.
    Dear Gujji-Borana, I want you to understand that your heroes are not my heroes and above all some of individuals you claim them as heroes were Mercenary of Somalia government who made considerable damage to Oromo cause. I see that you need help on this point, if you consider Somali Aboo cause as Oromo cause maybe you are right. In addition to this please do not call anyone stupid, if you do so it shows who you are.
    If you think all Oromia belongs to all Oromos why did your brother who is zonal administrator want to remove the word Borana, did you say anything on that matter!!!!!!
    You even try to vilify General Jagama Kelo, General Merdassa Leelisa, General Ragassa Jimma, General Demisse Bulto, Mr. Godana Tuni and Mr. Jatani as a Gobena’s of 21st century, it shows how you are ignorant about Ethiopia or Oromo history.You need to understand these individuals were from most prestigious University in the Western world.
    Most of the time you talk about Abyssinia I think Abyssinians were removed from the power in 1991. I want you to compare the Abyssinian government and the current government. To my understanding today, you are allowed to speak in your language, and allowed to dance on the street once a year. Where is the poitical and economical empowerment for the society? Who is getting richer in Ethiopia of today? What I know today the land in Gujji zone is completely polluted from the chemical the mining company uses to steal the natural resource. I am appealing to you to not be the prisoner of the past, do not waste your precious time talking about Habesha.
    You attempted to explain to me how Mr. Oddo is a true Oromo and suffer for the Oromo cause, people can be taken to the court and sent to the prison for different reason but the truth speaks for itself. If Mr.Oddo is a true Oromo he should not write what he wrote on his facebook. From my knowledge Garris are Somali they were not Oromo and they are not Oromo but your true Oromo who is Mr. Oddo told the entire world that it was a Borana community who forced out the Garri community from Oromo political movement which is very far from the truth. At this point I would not talk about the Garri brothers because they can talk for themselves. In conclusion, I would like to ask you to talk about former district commissioner of Jamjam and former deputy Governor of Borana zone, I know you know who am referring to. Is he among those Gobanas?

  9. Oromticha , thank you so much for balancing the book on the so called writing of Mr. Nadessaa Oddo. I feel bad for Oromo community and particularly for Oromo Media Net work, for having Mr. Nageessa Oddo as their political analyst. This person did not even pass the village politics. In his writing he tried even to tell us that the name Nagelle Borana was created by Gov Godana and Gov Jatan, I wonder where he got that information. This person needs help, is there any one in his society who can teach him the history of that great town? Mr Oddo we defend Nagelle Borana by our blood and we will do it again and you must understand that we are the superpower in the region. Mr Oddo, you are nothing but fifth column against your own society(Oromo).
    Therefore I would like to appeal to all Borana from all walks of life to stand up and defend our beloved home land as our ancestors did.

    • For the organizer/s of posts on ardajila Blog. Read this carefully and think many times and ask our lovely elders both in Borana or Guji or Arsi clans of Oromo who live in Borana or Guji zones. If you don’t know our history it does does not surprise me because Abyssinia regimes didn’t write it or destroyed it simply to avoid awareness about Oromo history. So you need to sit down with Oromo elders from Borana or Guji or Arsi or for that matter from any part of Oromia to understand the basics that you need to respect. Don’t refer to Oromo society in one zone or locality or village as an enemy of another Oromo society in another zone or locality or village because what so ever the cause of conflict between oromo brothers you as an individual or as a group must not imply or show or try to divert the conflict to the interest of others. On this point I really appreciate you

      To my fellow Guji, Borana, Arsii, for that matter Oromo living in Oromia in general and in Guji and Borana Zone in particular

      Let me dissect the truth for you, don’t pay atttention to the individuals interest written here. First of all I was born and grew up in Guji-Borana society, I know elders, moms, sisters, brothers, poleticians, historians, teachers and most importantly the history and interest of Oromo society living in these two zones. First of all, for Ardajila blog post organizer even though you need to change yourself especially your atitude and knowledge thank you for writing about our society.
      Issue no. 1 : why Borana and Guji are fighting: For those of you who know the history of Ethiopian Empire the answer is very simple, For those of you who didn’t get chance to ask our elders or those of you just read only history written by Abyssinians you need to make an effort to understand it. The answer is divide and rule.

      This was implanted during Ethiopian Unification (little bit before menelik II) and it works very well back then and now in 21st century it still working very well. In fact this kind of implanted conflict not only between Guji and Boran clans of oromo but it was between Arsii and Guji, Arsii and Borana, Shewa and Arsi, Kerayu and Arsi, etc. During the Dergi regime the conflict reduces because The Derge policy was One Country, One language and One people. Because of that forget about Oromo clans the whole Oromia was under big threat. Derge try to unify the whole Ethiopian under Amhara culture, language and tradition and taboos.
      After downfall of Derge, the pressure from OLF forced Wuyyanne (TPLF) to bring back identity of each and every society. In doing so TPLF clash with OLF and then OLF left transition Govt. Then TPLF took OLF plan and forged it toward their interest and pass over to OPDO. So in general that is what we have now.

      Issue no. 2. when conflict between other oromo clans decrease why the conflict between Guji and Borana escalate at the momment?

      This is very difficult question for those of you who do not know these two Zones physically or I mean for those who didn’t live, haven’t, don’t live in these Zones. Here are the answers:

      1. The southern border between Kenya and Ethiopia is inhabited by Borana. These Border extends from Moyale all the way to the west very large area, Next to Borana Guji inhabits all the area from Abaya sea (in the sothern people region) to Ganale river vally (highland of bale). If Borana and Guji fight each other the Ethiopian troops don’t need to Patrol these area. They just have to make sure these two oromo clans are watching each other as enemies. Who they control easly by doing these. The oromo liberation front activities. No body knows this secrete including Ardajila blog poster.

      The conflict arises in different forms but the big issue behind the conflict is this. The society did not know this issue, The administrators are told to do some thing but they never been told that what they have been told will ignites conflict. The instructor know these will lead to conflict.

      Fact check about what has been posted here:

      Negelle Borana: I asked my dad who is not alive now long ago what Negelle means? He knew the area before Abyssinians conquer when they were lead by Gada system. He told me that it means peace. I asked him was there war? He said there was a kind of siddii 3 conflict and they call for peace at this place. Then what is Siiddii 3, these are Borana, Guji and Arsii. what they are: these are three brothers born from one dad but there was conflict between them and then they separated and become siddii which means no more brothers in his word. So that is what I know as history.

      About Negessa Oddoo:

      I knew Negessa very well and he is really good Oromo and I don’t think he has interest to hurt anyone. I also read what he posted, he didn’t edit what he was posted. Most of those things are what people from either side telling you. The truth is not what either side is telling you.

      “Where is Oromuma brotherhood? Why Gujii declared war on Borana community?”
      Please don’t smear innocent society with toxic idea, you started very well by saying administrators and then you again lost in the wed. Guji didn’t declare war on Borana, Borana didn’t declare war on Guji. It is Abyssinian hidden agenda that always erupt suddenly because they need this conflict to erupt from time to time. We need to teach our society. We don’t ochestrate this conflict.Think before you post anything against society. Focus on administrators, keep in mind also they are bunch of Gonena’s.

      “After all Oromititi is not a gift that one could give to other.” Yes, that is right, we born Oromo, we are not going to change it because someone hate us or did not like us. We don’t force anyone to become Oromo or to change his ethinicity.

      ” Actually, after reading his short writing, I am worried for a society that will be led by such individual. Whether it is Gujii or entire Oromo community.” I think you don’t know him very well. He struggling with our enemies straight forward and was jailed for 2 years for opposing them. Take your time in understanding who Negessa is. Don’t coclude with few phrases on his facebook page. I understand he should have used better wording on his writing but I believe that was mistake.

      “This person needs help, is there any one in his society who can teach him the history of that great town? ” You are one of the person in his society to correct him. Don’t be divisive.

      “Again it is a public record that Gov. Jatani Ali stood for Guji Community and helped bring Shalaqa Taakelle to justice, to be punished for his evil deed…On different post Mr Nageessa indicated that the recent conflict is an explosion of a time bomb planted by the Abyssinians. This is a bit confusing and made me question whether he regards Govs. Godana Tuni and Jatani Ali part of Abyssinia. …This is a bit confusing and made me question whether he regards Govs. Godana Tuni and Jatani Ali part of Abyssinia.If Govs. Godana and Jatani intended to promote conflict between Borana and Guji communities, they could have advocated for return of Borana lands occupied by Guji”

      Look when did you left Borana and Guji Zone or when did you left Ethiopia? Are you Menelik II military Commander? Your idea is so old and stupid. If you don’t know what is Oromo try to understand it. Whose land is whose? which Oromo take land from Which Oromo? You are in 21 Century where everyone knows the fact and reality. You probably escape from Ethiopian in the early days and all you know is what your Abyssinian enemies thought you. Go read books written by Oromos. Ask who you are and ask about others?
      In your little stupid mind Godana Tuni, Jatani Ali can you give you land or take away land from a society. Godana Tuni and Jatani Ali is just other Gobenas. Go tell that history to your Abyssinian friends, they might appreciate you. We appreciate Eelemo Kiltu, General Tadesse Biru, General Waqo Gutu, Takelle Utura etc. but not Godana Tuni, Jatani Ali, General Jagama Kelo, General Mardassa Leelisa, General Ragassa Jimma, General Demisse Bulto and/or Bunch of Gobanas

      Here again you don’t understand the fundamental issue that oromo people facing. We encourage anyone who oppose colonizers, in any way possible like Eelemo Kiltu, General Tadesse Biru, Taakelle Utura, Waqqoo Gutu, Haji Kuta, etc. …many other oromo heroes. Remember we must not be appreciating those oromos who serve Abyssinians interest such as General Gobena Dachee, General Jagama Kelo, General Merdassa Leelisa, General Ragassa Jimma, General Demisse Bulto, Mr. Godana Tuni, Mr. Jatani Ali, etc. many more Gobenas….

      “Mr Oddo we defend Nagelle Borana by our blood and we will do it again and you must understand that we are the superpower in the region.”
      I am sure you are not Oromo, if Oromo you are one of those Gonenas. We know for fact these Innocent people can fight each other based on propaganda from Stupid Abyssinias like you. Shut up you dammy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      “It is not fair to deny ownership of a battle after losing” In your stupid little mind you think one win over the other. Think many times before you write something like that or just stop writing toxic divisive idea and take care of your Pizza’s and hot dogs. You know what is fighting means and you know who is fight who???????

      God Bless Oromo people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Downfall, war and crises for messagers of Abyssinians

      • For the organizer/s of posts on ardajila Blog.

On this point I really appreciate you.

        Dear Gujii-Boorana, Firs of all I like your name. Because it reminds me of what we are suppose to be. Bonded together, wish even the hyphen could be removed. Do not think I divide Oromo into locality or Zone. That is the way it is. Although all Oromos are brothers and sisters, it is not a secrete that territories exist. The way two brothers could live together in harmony is not if they do not have a difference, it is if they understand their difference and respect each other. Probably you are one of those trying to hide from reality and live in the imaginary world, where there is no such thing like territory. Or you are one of those who attempt to hide behind their harmonious presentation while fulfilling the evil agenda. You sound like someone who reads about history a lot. During your reading, have you came across any indication of territory existence even long before Abyssinians arrived? Even within communities like Booran and Guji there are several territories. Probably you have seen it when you are reading but forgot it. There are territories like Reera, Dheeda, Olaa…………. Thrust me even these territories as simple as they seem, they mean a lot for the owners. It is only with respect that different Reeras, Dheedas and Olaas coexist in harmony. Thus, please, do not teach us what we already know. If you have new thing to educate, you are welcome to do so.

        First of all stop attacking the blog. The blog gave a venue where people like me and you could express their ideas. Second , here you have dissected nothing. You just repeated what many knew long ago. Whatever you started reading is what others already have repeatedly, for decades and moved to the next stage. Please educate yourself not others. I would not comment on it, but revise your last thought.

        Issue no. 2. when conflict between other oromo clans decrease why the conflict between Guji and Borana escalate at the momment?
        This is very difficult question for those of you who do not know these two Zones physically or I mean for those who didn’t live, haven’t, don’t live in these Zones. Here are the answers:

The society did not know this issue, The administrators are told to do some thing but they never been told that what they have been told will ignites conflict. The instructor know these will lead to conflict.

        Did you say the two zones? What happen to your criticism of mentioning Boorana and Guji Zone. Anyway, I agree with your notion that this could be a divide and rule strategy. However, if the same group repeatedly violated, this shows that violator has some kind of intention to do so. Do you know how many times Guji militia killed Boraana Gadaa officials, including Adulaa? I assume you may recognize Adulaa. Also, if you are familiar with the region well you may know the latest attack on Boorana pilgrims traveling to ritual site, which I believe has a great meaning for entire Oromo society. Then, if you love the two communities as Oromo man/woman, why we did not hear your voice condemning such atrocity?
        Yes the government, like any political organization, may have an interest, but to blame all on a government or Abyssinians, as you mentioned is not correct. Why Boorans do not cross in to Guji region and commit such crime? Above all why do you think the government is using one side to ignite a conflict again and again? After all, both are governed by the same regime. Whether these orchestrated attacks are promoted by Guji zone administration or other hidden forces, the trend is clear. Of course, for you it is simple and easy to blame it on the government and relax. However, it is not that simple when you lose loved ones day in and day out, witness your respected tradition being humiliated, your villages violated repeatedly. You say nobody know this secrete. I don’t know what secrete you are talking about. Probably, since you just started to realize this, it has been a secrete for you. Conversely, many knew what you mentioned above for centuries. I agree with your last sentence, that the entire society do not know the hidden agenda being promoted by administrators and some individuals ( not sure whether they qualify but for sake of argument) like your friend.

        Fact check about what has been posted here:
        Negelle Borana: I asked my dad who is not alive now long ago what Negelle means? He knew the area before Abyssinians conquer when they were lead by Gada system. He told me that it means peace. I asked him was there war? He said there was a kind of siddii 3 conflict and they call for peace at this place. Then what is Siiddii 3, these are Borana, Guji and Arsii. what they are: these are three brothers born from one dad but there was conflict between them and then they separated and become siddii which means no more brothers in his word. So that is what I know as history.

        Now, I know where you get most of your information. Thank you for clarifying.

        About Negessa Oddoo:
        I knew Negessa very well and he is really good Oromo and I don’t think he has interest to hurt anyone. I also read what he posted, he didn’t edit what he was posted. Most of those things are what people from either side telling you. The truth is not what either side is telling you.

        If he has decent idea, no need for editing. That is unfiltered thoughts and feelings he has for Boorana community. Do you mean he writes unconsciously and seek for editing later? That is dangerous. From now on he needs someone like you around, more informed and manipulative LOL.

        “Where is Oromuma brotherhood? Why Gujii declared war on Borana community?”
        Please don’t smear innocent society with toxic idea, you started very well by saying administrators and then you again lost in the wed. Guji didn’t declare war on Borana, Borana didn’t declare war on Guji. It is Abyssinian hidden agenda that always erupt suddenly because they need this conflict to erupt from time to time. We need to teach our society. We don’t ochestrate this conflict.Think before you post anything against society. Focus on administrators, keep in mind also they are bunch of Gonena’s.

        The title is not an issue. If you read the entire article, it is clear that nothing was held against Gujii or Borana community. That is unless you regard Guji zone administration and Nageessa Odo as community. Please do not afraid to mention the truth. This is Abyssinian hidden agenda promoted by Guji zone administration and some ignorant intellectuals like your friend.

        “After all Oromititi is not a gift that one could give to other.” Yes, that is right, we born Oromo, we are not going to change it because someone hate us or did not like us. We don’t force anyone to become Oromo or to change his ethinicity.

        Come on. Do not disrupt your criticizing voice when it gets to your friend. Describe it the way it is. He is ignorant; I would not use your language (stupid).

        “This person needs help, is there any one in his society who can teach him the history of that great town? ” You are one of the person in his society to correct him. Don’t be divisive.

        This is not my idea but could appeal to Dido Gawole to help him.

        “Again it is a public record that Gov. Jatani Ali stood for Guji Community and helped bring Shalaqa Taakelle to justice, to be punished for his evil deed…On different post Mr Nageessa indicated that the recent conflict is an explosion of a time bomb planted by the Abyssinians.

        In previous parts you sound like concerned Oromo man/woman. However, here you start to show your true self. Are those individuals you like out of all Oromo heroes? You need to read more to understand Oromo history and heroes. You may like them all. Again you sound like a beginner. I see that the only thing you know about Govs. Godana Tuni and Jatani Ali is the position they held during Derg regime. However, you do not, or even expected, to know their role in Oromo struggle. Please, go back to your mentor and ask more questions.

        “Mr Oddo we defend Nagelle Borana by our blood and we will do it again and you must understand that we are the superpower in the region.”
        I am sure you are not Oromo, if Oromo you are one of those Gonenas. We know for fact these Innocent people can fight each other based on propaganda from Stupid Abyssinias like you. Shut up you dammy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        “It is not fair to deny ownership of a battle after losing” In your stupid little mind you think one win over the other. Think many times before you write something like that or just stop writing toxic divisive idea and take care of your Pizza’s and hot dogs. You know what is fighting means and you know who is fight who???????

        It seems you interpreted a script the way you like it to be. Did you read the following sentence? The burning truth is that not Gujii community but, Guji zone administrators and individuals like your friend lost their battle. They lost the battle several fold. They lost it in the court, on the field and on media period. You may not like to hear this though.

        God Bless Oromo people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        I second you on this. God Bless Oromo people and God Bless Oromiya!!!!!!!!!!

        Downfall, war and crises for messagers of Abyssinians
        Amen !!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Please ardajila.com admin, do not allow the undercover wayyaane agent like the one who commented above who call himself “Guji-Borana” to use your website to spread his agenda of dividing our people by taking this opportunity and he is also calling you names and ‘stupid’. Does ardajila.com’s regulation statement allow such non-sense from such ignorant people who rush to insult others? Delete the rubbish he vomited above. Thank you!

          • Oromticha, thank you for that reply to that person called “Guji-Borana” who is ignorant of the history of Borana region and facts on the ground, but trying hard to fix the little information he got into his biased opinion. You need to go back to school and take some history classes buddy!
