1. The fact that the Tigre colonist jailed Dr. Mararaa for appearing on EU stage is going to hurt the TPLF because the EU parliament members can urge their governments to stop donating their money to the dictatorial Tigre rule.
2. Mean time, Birr is losing it’s value very fast and the TPLF is going to devaluate it pretty soon. Worse, the Tigreans are making south Sudan their enemy and it seems that the TPLF enemies are growing as time goes by. Egypt, Uganda, southern sudan etc.
3. The US government led by Trump is not going to give the TPLF 3.5 billion dollars as did the Obama government so that too is going to hurt the Tigre colonizers.
4. If what I am hearing is true, the TPLF has already invited the opposition groups and I hope Dr. Bayana Pheexiroos etc would demand the release of Baqalaa Garbaa, Marara and the remaining leaders, including the tens of thousands Oromo prisoners.
5. Most importantly, these criminals will be brought to justice soon for the atrocities they’ve committed and for the mass killing in Ajjee, Shaashamannee, Awaday, Naqamtee, Najjoo, and the entire Oromia villages. The Tigreans killed civilian populations everywhere in Oromia, Ogadenia not to mention the number of Oromo youth who lost their lives in the desert of Libya, Sudan, Egypt and in the oceans. So far, they survived by use of arbitrary arrest, detention, and the torture of political prisoners and the international community is well aware of that.
6. This time when corruption became an endemic and the economy is in shambles, the Tigreans can no longer be able to stifle the voice of our people.
Ethiopia cuts diplomatic ties with South Sudan: Radio

A diplomatic row has broken out between South Sudan and neighboring Ethiopia following rumors on social media that President Salva Kiir accepted to allow Ethiopian rebels to open their office in the capital Juba.
“Rumours have been circulating on social media that when President Kiir visited Egypt, he discussed important issues with the Egyptian officials so that Ethiopian rebels can open an office in Juba, “a senior government official who preferred anonymity told Radio Tamazuj Monday.
“The rumours circulated that the President has accepted to allow the Ethiopian rebels to open their office in Juba and Egypt will support the Ethiopian rebels with guns, because Egypt is having differences with Ethiopia over the issue of Renaissance Dam, so this is what happened on social media,” he added.
The official accused the SPLM-IO faction allied to former First Vice President Riek Machar of circulating the rumour in neighbouring Ethiopia.”The rebels now took advantage of that, and this information has already reached the government of Ethiopia,” he said.
He pointed out that the government of Ethiopia has decided to cut diplomatic ties with the government of South Sudan and expel South Sudan’s Ambassador to Addis Ababa.
“Even if there are differences between us, Ethiopia cannot expel our ambassador, because the ambassador is the ambassador of South Sudan to Ethiopia and at the same time he is representing us in the African Union. So, Ethiopia cannot expel our ambassador,” he said.
According to the official, South Sudan government will issue a statement to deny the rumour.
