Ethiopia's tyrant & shameless rulers push Kenyan TV to drop report on rebels

ETHIOPIA/Last week, the Ethiopian tyrant rulers attempted to force a private Kenyan broadcaster Nation Television (NTV) to drop a four-part exclusive report on rebels in southern Ethiopia.   Ethiopia’s rulers were once  crocodile liberators allied with the OLF. NTV aired the first two parts of “Inside Rebel Territory: Rag-Tag Fighters of the Oromo Liberation Front,” which led Ethiopia’s tyrants ambassador to Kenya to accuse the Nation Media Group of giving a platform to a terrorist organization, while the ambassador himself represent the worst terrorist group in the horn of Africa, the TPLF (Gangster Melese Zenawi) . The Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) is fighting for greater autonomy for the Oromos, the largest ethnic group in the south of the vast Horn of Africa nation. “Clearly, officials at the Ethiopian Rulers Embassy  did not want NTV to air this program. We repeatedly explained to them that this is not possible,”  NTV’s worker for the broadcast news told a reporter today. The Kenyan Foreign Affairs Ministry was also involved in attempting to get the station to drop the story, the reporter said. “No demands have been agreed to,” he added, saying that the final two parts will air tonight and Tuesday. In 2008, authorities accused Qatar-based satellite network Al-Jazeera of “direct and indirect assistance to terrorist organizations” after the station aired an exclusive report on the  Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF). Al-Jazeeracontinued to air the program. In 2007, Ethiopian tyrant rulers and tribalis authorities detained three New York Times journalists for five days for reporting on the ONLF. Local independent journalists who have reported on rebel groups always land in prison on various criminal charges, including publication or distribution of “false news likely to incite violence” or “membership in a terrorist organization.” In one case, three journalists, Garuma Bekele, Tesfaye Deressa, and Solomon Nemera of the defunct Oromo-language weekly Urji, spent four years in prison over an article challenging official claims about the killing of three alleged OLF members by government forces. Numerous  journalists perceived to have sympathies for the OLF have also been thrown into prison on spurious accusations, including former Ethiopian Television News Director Dhabessa Wakjira. On top of all that, Ethiopia recently enacted draconian anti-terror legislation, which criminalizes any reporting the tribal rulers  deem favorable to groups and causes it labels as “terrorist.” In other words, reporting the activities or statements of such groups could be interpreted as glorifying or aiding their causes. An Ethiopian reporter, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of the tribal tyrants reprisal, told a reporter there was no public  reaction to the NTV controversy, and most local tyrants owned media did not report it. Another one said independent coverage of such stories would be difficult without a public statement from the rulers. “You cannot initiate [such] stories if there’s no the TPLF rulers  reaction, else you run the risk of being labeled as someone who’s promoting their movement,” he said.
