Abiy Ahmed and Demeke Mekonnen in Raya, Tigrai clothing

No Earthly force can take Raya out of Tigrai and Tigrai out of the people of Raya because they are one and the same.

The accidental prime minister of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed and Demeke Mekonnen appeared in traditional Tigrai clothing which they said was a gift by unknown lady from Raya on the occasion of Ethiopian New Year.

Abiy Ahmed and Dmeke Mekonnen receiving a gift from unknown woman is not a problem. The problem is the regime of Abiy Ahmed taking out Raya out of Tigrai by saying the folloing. “Today one Raya mother presented Raya traditional clothing to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Deputy Prime mInister Demeke Mekonnen in the prime minister’s office”.

Someone from southern Tigrai, Raya zone shouldn’t be referred as a Raya woman or Raya man, instead they should be referred to as a woman or a man from Tigrai. Raya has been an integral part of Tigrai for the past known history and still is part and parcel of Tigrai.

The mercenary team in Addis Ababa is trying to divert the Ethiopian people’s attention from the critical political, economical, and social crisis it is in. The federal government has effectively lost control of the country and basically the Ethiopian states are running themselves.


The Ethiopian people have lost all hope on the current regime in Addis Ababa and they are looking for different options. Many Ethiopians from all ethnics and walks of life expressed their fear for Ethiopia’s disintegration at the National forum to rescue the Ethiopian Constitution and the Federal system in Ethiopia which took place in the city of Mekelle.

Abiy Ahmed’s spectacle in Addis Ababa today using Raya for political stunt was a violation of the Ethiopian constitution and the federal system because Abiy Ahmed and Demeke Mekonnen illegally violated Tigrai’s territorial integrity.

Today’s action is a last ditch effort by these criminals to survive the storm brewing in Ethiopia. The childish drama by Abiy Ahmed will have a far reaching dire consequences and it will create an immense negative reaction in the people of Tigrai.
