Tigrai Online, Jan. 4, 2019

The father of Colonel Demeke Zewdu Mr. Zewdu Ayele said his wife and himself are one hundred percent Tigraians.

The father of Colonel Demeke Zewdu Mr. Zewdu Ayele said his wife and himself are one hundred percent Tigraians from Wolkayit Zone western Tigrai. In an interview with Dimtsi Woyane Tigrai TV the dignified Mr. Zewdu said both his wife the mother of Colonel Demeke Zewdu and himself are from the same area in Wolkayit western Tigrai. “My son, while I am here! He is pure Tigrawai”. He added his son is doing this means acting like he is Amara to fool the farmers and collect money. It is for personal gains and he may not even have time finish what has accumulated so far. He also said, “if you feel sorry, take me to him so I can tell him”.

Colonel Demeke Zewdu is one of the vocal people who claim the Wolkayit zone in western Tigrai is Amara, but the claim has been proven false many times.  The colonel who was part of the TPLF fighting force for a long time is motivated by personal anger towards some people.

Demeke Zewdu is one of the leaders of this futile movement which was setup by Amara region leaders to divert the real question of the Agaw and Qemant people who are fighting to establish their own state separate from Amara regional state. Demeke Zewdu has been at the for front claiming he is through and through Amhara and has nothing to do with Tigrai, however his own father came forward and told the world he has absolutely nothing to do with Amhara as far as ethnicity is concerned. Now those bandits who were looking up to him as a hero Amhara warrior who challenged the TPLF should find another Amhara leader because he is not Amhara his family and his childhood friends said it clearly.

The population of Wolkayit reacted in anger and completely rejected so false propaganda campaign on their identity. Experts who have intimate knowledge of the area, the people and the history say there was a brief period of time in the reign of Emperor Hailesilassie where Wolkayit region was forcefully incorporated to Gonder Kifle Hager.  Other than that Wolkayit has been part and parcel Tigrai since the known history of Ethiopia.
