Ethiopia - Severe tremor in CUD
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - The famous faces of the 2005 election who sounded sincere and altogether have nowadays become foes who openly disrespect one another, other week in week out. That move has finally been backed with action this week as Chairman Hailu Shawel suspended five members of the leadership. The executive committee on the other hand, has pledged to get the decision reversed.
In what came out to be the peak of internal problems among the CUD leadership, Chairman Hailu Shawel has suspended five members of the leadership on 11 December, 2007, while the executive committee retaliated the next day by threatening to take what it called an “illegal” measure by the Chairman to the party’s Supreme Council for final verdict.
The five suspended leadership members are Dr. Berhanu Nega, Birtukan Mideksa, Gezachew Shiferaw, Dr. Hailu Araya and Biruck Abebe. Hailu Shawel identified Dr. Berhanu Nega as the ringleader of the ‘conspiring’ team.
The Chairman accused the five suspended people of plotting to overthrow the party leadership and to misdirect the party struggle contrary to the party bylaws. In a detailed description of these accusations, Hailu Shawel also included exposure of party funds for misappropriation and divisive activities of the suspended in the party. According to the Chairman, the team is conspiring to create hatred and suspicion among CUD members, as opposed to striving to have the legal recognition of the party reinstated, working for the release of the imprisoned and reopening of closed offices.
On the other hand, executive committee members, led by party deputy Chairperson Birtukan Mideksa issued a press release explaining the actions of Hailu Shawel as contravening party laws. The press release noted that the Chairman’s decision to suspend the five people is not compatible with the procedures stated in Article 10/3 of the bylaw.
The executive committee accused Hailu Shawel of precluding committee meetings and setting up the party’s international council despite the decision by the majority of the committee members not to do that. The statement went on to describe the Chairman as someone who is not willing to submit to majority rule and alerted people not to take part in efforts to destroy the party.
This week’s rattling measures and activities by what have clearly become the two factions in the CUD, are a culmination of grudges that have been brewing since the release from of the party’s leadership.
This only helps Ethiopian hating Woyane. We cannot allow small disagreements to get to big and divide ourselves like woyane has divided the nation. After sleeping with eritreans for decades and openly degrading ethiopia he has succeeded in dividing the country and only the unity of the Ethiopian people can get rid of them. Stop the childless games and unite.
It is very sad but it is also a lesson to the blind supporters. One has to understand who he/she supports rather than who he/she doesn’t support. The mere fact that someone doesn’t like EPRDF does not has to mean that anybody but EPRDF.
Logic must be utilized at all times. Ethiopia can not afford another failed revolution. I think EPRDF is not perfect but better than the alternative. Can we all imagine what te alternative would have been?
God really Loves Ethiopia!!!!
For protecting us from Derg #2.
I mean, did you hear the ‘Awaj’ and the way it was read? the only thing that was missing was a statement about the death venality and the immediate execution.
“Gangeen Sekalaa bootee ofichun gebabsite.” For those who do not understand it means ” When a “beklo” (offspring of donkey and horse) breaks her roe she makes it short for herself. Well I hoe this will be the last straw that would help the others break away from this man who is a self aggrandizer. He has to know that the struggle of Ethiopians is bigger than just one person and no one has crowned him king. So applying the rule of lead, follow or get out of the way, IMHO, the dude should get out of the way.
yes god must love ethiopia, hailu shawl is dictator than mengestu. he is dum he dont know any thing about politics, he just want to be a leadear and revenge the poor peoples. do you all listen american radio like three days ago there was a debate between him and DR.HAILU ARAYA he was really ediet. if you rememebr two years ago that is what LEDETU AYALEW said.LEDETU is the onley our good futuere leader. DR. BERHANU is good, but he relly wants the power.
How old is enginer Hailue Shawel?
Germawinatachew kibur!!! Irrrrr Hailu Shewid
Woyane’s Yugoslviaian dream Says:
We cannot allow small disagreements to get to big and divide ourselves
Small Disagreements? I don’t think so!
Just imagine these people (broken up pieces of CUD) leading a nation. This is not a small disagreement. A small group that can not bring peace and agreement among itself can not bring peace and agreement to a whole nation. God had saved Ethiopia from being messed up by these people.
I dont think CUD’s illness makes woyane healthy and good to be preffered.
rather it makes people to prefer armed struggle the best solutions to ethiopians who is suffering under tyranny.
Woyane wants to be good in the absence of competition.
down to cud and what ever name you give to them. shame for us to have leader like those onces.
i think if wayane change mind to accept others tribes as ethiopia specially respect oromo people they are better than any leader we had in the past.
shame to old fashion, called hailu or whatever name you give them
love and development to my country first, then other thing will come later
down and down to cud amhara savege from montain
This reminds me of how Ehapa(eprp) was so full of factions(anjas) and how one clique used to accuse the other of being less communist,pro dergi banda undercover tehahit(tplf and kill each other in the process.
Honest, the dude is a village idiot who stepped over dead bodies on his way to work to serve the criminal Mengistu regime. This idiot also represents the old tribal Ethiopia who murdered her own children. You folks are better off without him.
Mr.hailu is super dictator better than mengistu if he gets the gun he will prove it to all of us belive me on this one,wwwwwwwwww the presidant of CUD…
C stands for Crud
U stands for Unreliable
D stands for Dumba** Dictator!!
Did I say that???
i think though eprdf is way from being perfect and sincere it is the better option we have.though EPRDF has done so many mistakes especially in the first few years undeniably they have done their best in the past few years to push the country in the right direction.the big problem with CUD or the the oppostion for that matter is that they brought figures who have prefixes before their names,like Dr. engineer and etc.although i am not in any way not opposed to the fact that educated people should not run for poltical offices ,the thinking that only those kind of people can solve the problem of the poor nation was really preposterous.only the lay people of ethiopia who are passing through the daily hardship of of life can find a solution to the problem.i don;t mean that illitrates can solve the problem.the problem with people who spends most their lives in the educational realm im is they are detached from the reality of life and not practical.see AAU ,it has been there for more than half a century now and what it has done to alleviate the poverty of this country.nothing.it was there before many african nations have their own colleges and university but now we are lagging behind most of those nations in terms of growth and dev.that why actually this people are not able to work together.those are peoples whoo have big egos and thinks things in terms of advantage.they spent most of their life outside ethiopia and came back to reap the benefits when the country is in peace.we need people who have been in the fabrics of ethiopian life and are able to solve the problem of this nation.we don’t want people with big egos who don’t let things to go forward unless it is their way.we need humble people who are willing to listen to others.imagine this people in power .it would have been a big mess .ethiopia has a its oun share of its own problems ,we don’t want another headache.my advice to CUD leaders:go back to where you belong,to the big university and colleges where they have places to handle your big egos.we want people to listen to our problem not to dictate from a notion that they know everything.
armed struggle is the only solutions for ethiopia.
this is from someone how love ethiopa very very much.
cuz i don’t see any other way,
All are woyane propaganda outlets.
CUD is the future of Ethiopia.The woyane fascists know that and that is why they started their genocidal terror against this party as soon as TPLF/EPRDF lost the election in the ‘05 election.At least this disagreement(among CUD members) was not solved by mass killing like woyane always has solved the disagreement in its party.CUD members and supporters are not sub human chimpanzees like the woyanes.
It is sad but I didn’t expect much out of these bunch of power-hungry individuals. In the first place the got together not because they had similar political visions but just for common hate towards EPRDF. We,poor Ethiopians, will never entertain peaceful and democratic life style even long after EPRDF is gone. Don’t you agree? It is like a fate/destiny thing. I have given up!
i don’t worry that much about some arrogant leaders with in kinijit we shall look forward for the better leadership, we shall look forward for our priority.just focusing on our common enemy.that is woyane. kinijitoche ande hunu weyem tesebaberu. we are the people of Ethiopia we know we shall win!we will continue our struggle for freedom.
GOD BLESS OUR TRUE LEADERS!!
If this guy had the government position, those people who lost their possition would have been killed. This is waht we call it Neftegna. Woy grazmach?
Those who fired from their positions were more cridible and matured than him.
Maferya, he think that the Ethiopian people were farm land to him.
I am not neithe weyanea nor kiniget.But,I love my country and I wish the best for that people who is Sandwich between poverty,natural and government disaster soon.When I read some comments ,I feel soory for People who are in power-How can they deal with 80 million people and 80 million problems.Anyway it is being blessed that CUD can not get power before they resolved thier intarnal issue.The last thing I would like to tell our community is “do not be robot!” - When we hat or love something try to be reasonable and See things from 360.
I was one of the many Ethiopians that were delighted to see two to three parties compete for political leadership during the 2005 election. However, my hope turned into disappointment by the stubbornness and shortsightedness of the CUD leadership.
Their unexpected victory in Addis Ababa and other towns gave them the wrong impression about their invisibility and opted to boycott ALL political gains in order to satisfy the functionally illiterate Diaspora. Now see where CUD is.
Still, Ethiopia needs a strong political opposition party that can be a force for a positive change. I say this not because I stand against the current government, but because my priority is the prosperity of Ethiopia and Ethiopians. And prosperity comes when those in power are positively challenged to make a change.
