As I have tried to share with you the simmering dispute among TPLF bigwigs recently, now the dispute is starting to surface and it is out in open and the TPLF propaganda machinery is working full time against the Sebhat Nega group which is trying to “re-instate” founding members of TPLF who have been unceremoniously let go from the front during Meles’ reign.
The President of Tigray and TPLF vice-chairman Abay Wolde is spearheading the campaign against the proposed reconciliation between those who are at the helm of TPLF and those founding members who were expelled by Meles.
In his New Year message today to Tigrayan People, President of Tigray Region, Abay Woldu warned Tigrayans that TPLF will not accept the new attempt of some TPLF leadership for “unholy” reconciliation with those who were swept away from the front by the renewal program.
Abay's tone and words of his warning are signs that TPLF is deeply divided on this issue.
The main character behind the reconciliation is Sebhat Nega who wants to restore TPLF to its “glory” days.

Abay went so far as calling his own comrades "staunch enemies" of TPLF and he emphasized that there is not going to be any bargain on this issue . He pleaded with Tigrayans to rally behind TPLF to execute all plans mapped by the “great leader”!
Here we go power struggle ala TPLF!!
