How an Ethiopian torturer hid in Denver for 7 years in plain sight
By Bruce Finley and Tom McGhee
Published in Denver Post
He played the role of a jovial father figure with a new generation of Ethiopian-Americans in metro Denver, far from the Red Terror atrocities of another time, another continent.
To the young men at the Cozy Cafe, Kefelgn Alemu Worku was Tufa, a paunchy, gray-haired mentor who was quick to burst into song, sit down at the piano or settle an argument when others had too much to drink. They welcomed his advice, his company and his jokes.
"Work hard. This is a good place to live. Change your life," he told one of them, 34-year-old Nas Siraj.
Alemu Worku said he began every day in his tiny apartment with prayers. He spoke of saving tips collected on his Denver International Airport shuttle bus and sending the money each month to support the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
What he didn't talk about was the past.
He is not the only hidden dergue criminal, I presume!
There are more. One of them I can surely pick is TEDDY the asshole shabian, who became notorious torturer in a kebele prison, from a pity job as a wofcho bet kulli.
That a criminal(if proven and convicted ofcourse) has remained mingling freely within the diaspora community, is a tip of an iceberg that rubs salt into the many unhealed wounds of millions of Ethiopians who lost their loved ones during the mayhem days of the Derg. One lid of a pandora’s box is opened!
Individuals like Dr Negede Gobezie an ardent member of MEISON and who was the chief architect of the Red Terror still remains at large somewhere in the US.
Dr Birhanu Nega and Andargachew Tsigie of Genbot7 who in their youth days as members of the EPRP, God knows what they had been upto when hundreds and thousands of boys and girls lost their lives on broad day light killings in many cities of our country.
These same venoms and many more others are now hiding within the toxic diaspora community acively engaged to derail the democracy and economic development in Ethiopia simply to conceal their bloody past and deceive many Ethiopians who have remote or no memories of the horrid days of the DERG.
I visit this site once in a while, and i see this idiot weyane name called Addid Zemen. Is he one of those dudes that got paid just to comment on these websites?? Anyways, I hope the Weyanes are watching, this is what is going to happen to them in a few years. So don’t even think about moving to the US after torturing our people. Will send your ass back to Africa or lock you up here. I hate all Tigrians!! sorry but it’s the truth, have no love for them and will never have.
Long live Ethiopia without Tigrians(woyane)
It seems the time is yours as you keep on talking nostop. I tell you, this will soon be history, and you and your types, who are responsible for the suffering of millions of Ethiopians will face justice sooner than later. There is time for everything. It is a pity that your evil, devil late leader has managed to pass on without facing the brunt of justice. TAKE MY WORD, You guys are on the queue. There is no escape from the truth. When I say this to you, it is because I know firsthand how many of us, innocent Ethiopians, are suffering, when you filthy “korkoro ras’ are killing, robbing and destroying our social fabric spoiling and abusing the opportunity history gave you to to do so many good things to the nation. Instead you are planting poison that is ruining our historic nation. You espouse division instead of unity. Your hatred to the biggest nationalities of Oromo and Amhara is boundless. No doubt, all this will fire back on you, evils and yilugnta bis, asafari mejgeroch.
Adgi Kelbi ,your last Magic Word accusing Semayawi Party Leaders as “ANARCHIST” ,the then evil Derg Cadres , Nessa Ermidja
Wossadji and Abyot Tebbakis usual
languages ,against the Youth they did assassinate and slaughter .Another fact ,most of derg poletica cadres ,and worst Tesfaye W/Selassie boys were Amiches or originated from Tigrai .You can fool no one ,arguing that History started in 1990 with Hawzen ,but before since 1977 with evil sellout cadres and bandas like you Under the command of the evil Haile Fida ,Negede Gobeze ,Getachew Shibeshi ,Legesse Asfaw ,Alemu Abebe ,Melaku Teffera ,Debella Dinsa and many more were acco^mplishing the evil mission .And of course did turn their coats since 1990. Better you pack your things and run away from USA before being unamsked ,afterall it’s not by playing as an Agazi Ass Hole Inside Tigre Bars and Agazi Embassies ,as did this criminal in Denver’s Cozy Cafe,that you will be spared . YE DERG BUTCHELLA LEKAMMI KEFFO RAS TEBYA
FANDYA ATTELA AMICHE BANDA !!!!!
Adgi Kelbi ,you are surely
the Amiche Mankorkorya and Korkorro Yaleshi Shelakki of Tchirkos Area ,recruited by your master Sehaye at Kefitegnia 21 ,who did participate on the killings of the youth specially held on March 1978 .Don’t forget you are on the list of the well known criminals…LOL !!!!
The other question how comes a criminal
of such kind did have a chance to
file from the country as easly .And what is really the links betwen former Key Shibir criminlas and the actual Bandits .
What was the reason of the hurry at the End of the 90th of the Agazi Bandits of shutting down this file .By only parading in court only the then Derg officials and few affilated criminlas as scapegoats. While well known criminals were garanteed safety by even obtaining key posts in the Agazi Party and Administration .And others rendering the same services to the actual regime .The likes of the Meakelawi Prison Torturers .
watch the full interview of Nesibu Sebhat (one of the victims of red terror) on YaTewlid.com. To think some of these people are not only living free but active in diaspora politics is unimaginable.
Mini amara and workamaw assamaw,…
You two better wake up from your hallucination and look at the reality on the ground in Ethiopia.
The brutal fascist “sew bella” regime of derg is gone never to come back.
Ethiopia is way far ahead some light years away beyond your decayed mentality can imagine. There is no place for your kind of backward people who keep dreaming to bring the past misery with way of destabilizing and disintegrating our country.
Ethiopia is in a great journey of developmental and transformation progress. We’ve already seen the light at the end of the tunnel. Nothing to stop us!
It is obvious that most of blood sucker X-DERG officer could be found merged with the diaspora communities, and most of them are community leaders, political activists, church leaders, humanitarian activists…ITC. As a result, they have been preaching us DERG was better than EPRDF…ITC. However, I believe that we all as society failed for not reporting them to the appropriate authority for all the crimes they have had committed against our people, and we selfishly allowed them to live among us. However, still it is not late to identify those blood suckers and to report them to the appropriate authority.
They can be easily identified from the way they commenting on this social medina that some of them can’t even hide their criminal and hatful personality that they sound like they are ready to shoot kill…TEDDY is one of them and need to be reported for investigation… If I was the host of this media, I would for for doing the right thing…
God bless the world!
Adgi Kelbi ,even the Sew Bellaw Derg Regime had gone for once and for ever ,but still its remenants
are still here and there Under ,Agazi Amiche Banda Tewanotchena ,Telatelotch most of the times disguised as Agazi Ass Holes ,Agazi bandits cadres and even Toturers .You are absolutly the Best Example….LOL !!!!!
AZ you are right Teddy is the one who was terrirising people with Melaku Tefera, in Gonder but his job was Eskista. I am sure mist of the killers are the people who are hiding in churches and making chaos in every comunity churches like that Major who was disturbing the peacefull cimunity in London. I am sure Teddy and Amoraw might end up in jail. Most of them are changing their names because they want their previous name to be forgotten with the crime they did back. The time will come and we will see their fate like KEFELEGN. YOU CAN HIDE BUT YOU CAN’T ESCAPE. Look at the coments he is making like we will burn u alive and so on.
mimi from arrtera, we know it gives you pleasure to read 500,000 ethiopians lost their lives by this jib face sub-human and his friends. it will heal the pain you are suffering from your independence that is leading your people to the bottom of the meditranean sea. i hope they deport his assss to ethiopia for hanging. it is a good lesson for current and future killers.

This is a joke. America is a cave for so many torturers around the world. They are called political asylum seekers.
Those mentally challenged low level thinkers only could be entertained by Tamagn Beyene, the pro Colonel Mengistu Hilemariam regime. So, you all criminal x-Derg, blood sucker officers enjoy to his zero sum jokes until your day comes to be accountable for all the crime you have committed against the Ethiopian people.
For your information, Tamagn Beyene to the majority of Ethiopian people is that he is just one of those DERG’s entertainers, and he is doing the same thing that he entertaining you all touring with his right hand man Shambel Belayneh…LOL.
The most ferniest thing I have heard him saying to his foolish audience was “wayanewoch betam yfernal! Men ale ya Azmari eyalu yeteyikalu silenie” leras sikorsu ayasanisu yebal adel…LOL.
Yes Woyane heard and lough at you, when you all headless fools bluffing “engna yelelebet GIDIB meserat yelebetim!” Egypt yafersewual…blah..blah…LOL.
Indeed, we have some members of our diasporas society that will never librate themselves from their backwardness, regardless they living for years in a civilized world…LOL.
God bless the world!
Here are some of the funny jokes of Tamagn Beyene’s jokes that he preach to his TEDDY likes audience…
We heard them calling people “hodam” means big belly… If they were honest, they would had look at themselves before insulting others. I mean most of those calling people names, most of them looks like fat pigs. Yet, they have no shame to call other people a big bellies …LOL. In addition we heard them naming people “feriwoch", while themselves are who run out of the country hiding their tails between legs…LOL.
I’m just wondering, who are they trying to fool? For sure, no one but the few foolishness that could be entertained by foolish easily…LOL.
God bless the world!
Betetu ,if you are looking Derg Era
cadres ,go and ask your DC envoys
Girma Birru and Sehaye Debalkew and if you have the Gut the actual Makelawi Torturers too who did render the same services to the then
Derg Tyrant .Don’t forget your dear Agazi Bosses ,if we fetch Derg Era’s Key Shibir Files I am sure that even your Dead Master name is included “MEN TADERGIWALESH , TREASON AND BANDAISM IS AFTERALL INSIDE YOUR DNA"….LOL !!!!By the way what about your boy friends ,Hipo Sele and the recently recycled banda Neway Dedebu from “BE ABYOT WORENTO” his derg era magic song recycled to your Dead Master by “WOGENE TESNANA YAN GOBEZ YAN DJEGNA ,stupid bla blas"….LOL !!!!
I am very skeptical of this accusation. The HRW just published the tortures of Journalists and other peaceful Ethiopians in the prison in broad day light in Addis Ababa. Now, why was this guy targeted? How is it that the U.S is now involved in such matters why didn’t act or shouldn’t this be for interatnational issue? Are they helping Weyane/TPLF to warn other ex Dergs to stop campaigning against TPLFS’ continues torture? So many stories doesn’t seem to add up. Why didn’t they go after Mengistu in Zimbabwe the main leader still living? How many Ethiopians are being forced to be member of TPLF/Weyane does that mean in future they will be targeted when TPLF goes down?
You are a Shabia, you can’t be Amara who declares it while Amara is under opression of Woyane. Idiot.
