Islam in Ethiopia is known since the time of the Prophet. The first Hijrah was in Ethiopia at the order of the Mohammed the founder of Islam.
Since the Arab Spring of 2011 Ethiopia tested its share reaching climax in 2012. This video shows the different positions of the Ethiopian Islamist and the different manifestations those anti and pro as the situation start being exploited by the regime which is leading to more exacerbation and more clamp down with no solution.
The revolt would lead to general uprising and regime change, if it is not kidnapped by sectarians and only if the other sector of the society joins the insurgency.
The recent mutiny in Abidjan, the army revolt in Burkina Faso and the uprising in Kampala demonstrate that Africans have joined the Arabic uprisings to eliminate there in human dictators. In Uganda the Protest is led by the city which supported Musevenie to power- Mbale. The protest was triggered by food price and the repeted arrest of the opposition leader for the 4th time in a month Dr. Kiza Besigye. The same is expected any time in Ethiopia while the regime is trying to divert the attention towards Eritrea and by constructing a Death Dam of inhuman proportion to irrigate the grabbed land of the starving millions.
The man in power in Uganda since 1986, President Museveni’s ordered his army to shoot at everything that moves the streets of Kampala like his friend Gaddafi in Misrata. It was best demonstration his dictatorial behavior which is similar to that of Gaddafi and Idi Amin Dada when his soldiers wounded a child in the streets of his capital today.
Uganda as a nation is start seeing the return of Idi Amin’s times when Museveni could not help the rising prices of basic commodities and fuel, and the loss of life and pain inflicted on them by his forces. Rather he bloody confirmed that the rising prices of food, is good news to farmers like Melese Zenawie of Ethiopia. Musevine in Kampala and Melese in Addis Ababa Knew well and good the high prices of food commodities are due to a number of factors beyond farmers’ control or could be controlled by artificially imposing prices like in Ethiopia. It seems the African dictators are far disconnected from the reality on the ground.
First, prices are high due to low food production. It is simply when the supply is low, prices tend to be high and vice versa. Farmers are not going to reap money from rising prices just from the air. The Dictator of Kampala is responsible for the t negligence in the agricultural sector is to blame for the food scarcity and hence high prices and poor living conditions like his collage in Ethiopia Melese Zenawie. The later is megalomaniac is building dams while over 2 million Ethiopians are starving to death.
The great lakes dictator dream that Uganda could become a food basket for Africa is far from reality.
Like in Ethiopia the Ugandans are disappointed by the way the nation’s resources and money have been spent- purchase of the multi-million fighter jets. Again like Ethiopia Ugandans need today is ability to feed their children, send them to school and be able to meet basic health care services. President Museveni is aware that sophisticated weaponry does not necessarily ensure the survival of a government since he defeated the mighty army of Milton Obote having started his guerrilla group with only 27 guns and his friend Melees to defeat the great army of Mengistu Haile Mariam with few university drop outs. Nor the great Death dam in Ethiopia will save Melees Zenawi from the coming Social tsunami.
What keeps the government in power and ensures the safety of its nationals is the WILL of the people. It was people’s will that brought President Museveni to power. Once people lose trust in the government, it cannot survive anymore. Gaddafi has got all sorts of arms but used it against his won people. Therefore, why should the nation waste all this money on weapons in Uganda and Dams in Ethiopia while people are starving in both countries?
In Ethiopian and in Uganda the only enemy one can think of is the opposition; those individual who do not share the same political ideology with their respective current regimes. Not surprisingly, all the arms purchased will be used to kill nobody but Ugandans! And all the dam waters on the Nile will be used to irrigate the grabbed starving farms fields.
