TPLF is good at recycling its use-and-throw officials. The “resignation” of Abadula from his ceremonial position in TPLF's rubber stamp parliament is not as significant as some would like us to think. It is to be remembered that the former prisoner of war, whose real name was Menase Wolde Giorgis, was once made a Major General. In 2005, he was made to vacate his position as Minister of Defense and was rebaptized Ato Abadula Gemeda, “President” of Oromia regional state. It is a folly to expect someone who leads a fake life–with fake name given to him by the TPLF, fake power and even fake degrees he bought for cheap to become a champion of the people he has betrayed throughout his adult life. The plain and simple truth is that Abadula is one of these political prostitutes owned and enslaved by the TPLF. This is a reality he has accepted for far too long. His resignation is not even a symptom of the crisis in TPLF's tyranny because the crisis is obvious without a puppet's resignation. We will wait and see what his masters will do with him again.
