Moment of truth: Defeated Ethiopian soldiers marched to prison in Tigray

Juba, South Sudan,

July 04, 2021 – Ethiopian federal government forces defeated by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front were on Friday paraded through the regional capital of Mekelle as they get taken into prison.

Photos posted online show many of the soldiers bowing their heads and casting their eyes downward as jubilation marred the Tigrayan city of Mekelle. Some soldiers were being carried on stretchers while others wore bandages freshly stained with blood from gun injuries.

Tigray announced victory against Ethiopian forces in late June in a stunning reversal in a civil war that has led to the displacement of nearly two million people in the Tigray region, widespread hunger, and reports that civilians were subjected to atrocities and sexual violence.

Analysts say the parade of prisoners of war served as a pointed rebuke to Ethiopia’s prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, who had proclaimed in a speech on Tuesday in the national capital, Addis Ababa, that reports of his troops’ defeat were “a lie” before declaring unilateral ceasefire less than a day later.

In November 2020, Abiy had declared victory just about one month after he initiated the military operation in Tigray. The fighting that continued for seven more months produced a sharply contrasting result for the federal government.

The defeated Ethiopian soldiers have been marching for four days from the quickly established battlefield camps where they had been held since the fighting ended this week flanked by Tigrayan fighters.

A 14-year-old dashed out into the street to run alongside the column, shouting her admiration for the leader of the Tigrayan forces, calling him a “lion.”

“All these soldiers tried to kill us,” the girl, Mearge Gebroemedhin, said a few moments later, referring to the Ethiopian government forces. “But the Tigrayan soldiers showed their mercy. I am proud of our soldiers.”

While some in the crowd jeered the soldiers, the onlookers focused much of their anger on the Ethiopian prime minister, Mr. Abiy.

Prepare fora deadly march to Djibouti and Yemen

Do you low lives think we are going to live side by side with these Abeshas (so-called ethiopians) prostitutes ever ever again? Not in the ‘slightest, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM’

Our Gambella region would be taken by the owners, our Anyuaks community. Our Nuers ke nyantoc ‘anhiar ka ke kɔc peei, ku na lɔ kɔc peei ka ken kɔɔr/thiëëc alä; ë ka rïïŋ në nɔŋ ‘Jääŋ/MuɔnyJiɛ̈ŋ/Jeŋë/Dinkäth’.

Notice fellows, the word ‘Dinka/’ doesn’t exists in ‘MuɔnyJiɛ̈ŋ’ language/dialects, but there are communities in our Nilotic plains and valleys who just called the ‘MuɔnyJiɛ̈ŋ’ the Dinkas. And the MuɔnyJiɛ̈ŋ have used to be called the Dinkas. ‘I mean, some one or somebody has to name you’ We are the Ancient Egyptians.

Our Nuers ke nyantoc even called themselves, ‘nääth’ people language. The low lives, are just piece of trashes who have been bodging our country and our progress all the times.

‘Nääth’ is just an Arabic word to mean people. The low lives should have used ‘thok Nuer’ and come and play games with ‘the Jääŋ/MuɔnyJiɛ̈ŋ/Jeŋë/Dinkäth’ Chollo, Anyuak, Jurchol/Luo, Acholi and other Nilotic plains and Nilotic valleys dialects which are intelligible to us.

But our Nuers ke nyantoc of all people love to stir up ‘ciɛc/apiɛ̈n (beehive/nest)’, and ran like little brats for foreign countries and to our enemies when their child-like bulllshit is later taken head on.

The low lives have been warn, they better go to a country and place they would be considered human beings. They even brag that they are *evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs in Africa fighting the whole of Africa. There you go!
