Dr. Debretsion G.Michael’s Complete Speech at the TPLF 13th Organizational Congress in Mekelle City September 2018


The people of Tigrai expect fundamental change and a complete transportation from the 13th Organizational Congress of the TPLF. The people want the TPLF to make a U-turn and come back to Tigrai and focus in the development of the state.

It is about time for the TPLF, all concerned Tigraians and peace loving people who love Tigrai to look inward in Tigrai and work to transform the state to reach its full potential.

In the past four decades the people of Tigrai have paid unimaginable sacrifice to bring Ethiopia out of the dark ages, but what they got in return is opposite to what they expected. Some extremist Amara groups have been waging unrelenting propaganda campaign against the TPLF and the people of Tigrai exposing Tigrai peaceful civilians to unwarranted attacks in their region and other parts of Ethiopia. At the end of 2016 and in the beginning of 2017 over 11,000 thousand Tigrai civilians were deported out of their houses and business by an organized, armed thugs and with help of some Amara officials. Hundreds have been killed in the state just because they are from Tigrai origin. The federal government tried to hide and still they don’t want to talk about it for some hidden agenda. Relief Web a UN organization that tracks displaced people in the world reported nearly one hundred thousand of Tigraians were fleeing from other regions of Ethiopia to Tigrai, especially from Amara regional state. Many of those displaced from other parts of Ethiopia back to their home state of Tigrai are still in dire situation without housing, sufficient food and water supply, and employment.


The Tigrai government should go out of its way to invite wealthy Tigraians and business people to come and invest in Tigrai. The hurdles in the government bureaucracy should be completely removed to pave a smooth way for investors in Tigrai.

The Tigrai state government and TPLF should have a comprehensive security strategy to build a strong and capable state military force to defend the state and its people from hostile groups and expansionist entities.  This could be done based on the Ethiopian federal constitution.
