Bearing in mind that nobodu is a perfect being in this world, the leaders talent can be weigfhed by a means of comparison. Don't forget that there are assertive leaders like Hitler who are super evils. Hitler as a Nazi master, he was a man inflaming the emotions of the German crowd but he had nothing to do to fulfil the impossible dream. Thus, genius for inspiring people can be for good or evil. It is not a matter of Hailu Shawl, Dr. Negaso, Dr. Beyene, Dr. Merara or others to be dealt with their ethnic back ground, however, we should consciously choose the best party and the best leader in Ethiopian political context.
Considered in general terms, everybody including Hailu Shawul should be governed by the pasrty policy and the rule of law. Any leader doesn't have a legitimate authority to offend a crime in a democratic society. If Haliu or Merar who ever against the interest of the people ther is no way to keep him longer as a party leader. This is the way how democracy and any party policy works.
All the great leaders have the abvility to inspire people and they know the value of it. Great leaders like Alexander the Great, George Washington, Mahtma Gandhi, Oliver Cromwell, Fidel Castro, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandela all had incredible ability of inspiring others to achieve victory.
Ethiopia needs such kind of leaders at this crucial time to achieve the goal of modern democracy where the people have opportunities to make the government truly representative.
Dear Oliqqa and all other OLF supporters,
It is true that there are genuine Oromo democrat leaders like Birtukan and Dr. Merara, fighting for freedom and democracy. They are responsible to lead the whole nations struggle in the front line. Ethiopians need these charismatic leaders to lead the future Ethiopia because they are against the tribal politics.
On the other hand, the big problem with the OLF leaders is a failure to avoid the egos, especially their own. They don't need to build the team of all Ethiopians to get the job done. There is no way to give room for bullies and insecure egos. They are still in the wrong track because of an impossible separatist agenda.If they want to achieve success, they would have develop a team spirit to encourage people to do what they are feeling belongingness. Everyone must star and take a lead role towards the bitter struggle to remove Woyanes. Build success in cooperation, not rivalry.
Other than this, the OLF mission remains as phantasm, we never question it.
