Colonel Goshu Wolde – Historical Speech

Editor’s Note:

Stumbled on this video recently and blown by the vigor, energy, and passion by which Goshu Wolde delivered at the UN right after Ethiopia failed in the hand off TPLF. This was an amazing speech at the time; Goshu was pleading with UN to protect Ethiopia from the hand of TPLF the organization that never lead a family let alone a nation as he put it.  Though Goshu himself served the most dictator leader in the history of Ethiopia  under communism, he was speaking of freedom and democracy and the direction TPLF will lead the country. Looking back after 22 years, democracy still has no place in Ethiopia and many are languishing in Ethiopian prison under sub-human condition for no apparent reason than demanding for free speech afforded to them by their nation’s constitution. As a person, Goshu was one of Ethiopia’s intellects but one would wish he was the defendant of freedom and democracy during his service. See it for yourself.

    Wow, just wow!!!! an admired and well respected Ethiopian intellectual who really eloquently expressed the deep desire of the people of Ethiopia as far as a Language could permit. Awesome, well after 22 years this is still the yearning of the Ethiopian people and what the government in power is lamenting, ” a democratically elected government that reflects the wishes of the people”. Unfortunately, those holding the barrel of the gun have till this day, starting from the derg regime, claim to be the ones democratically elected and reflecting the wishes of the people; but they are not!!!!
    Yes, we’ve come to far, but the fruition of democracy is still way up in the horizon for Ethiopia. I hope such civil discourse aimed on this website and others bring us closer to what Colonel Goshu Wolde expressed
