[John 10:10]

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy”

👉 Noble Peace Prize = License for Genocide

👉 During the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony in Oslo it was told that Abiy Ahmed’s Father is OROMO, and his mother AMHARA

But 6 months later the Illegitimate prime Minister Abiy Ahmed confessed to an Oromo television station that both his father and mother are ethnic Oromos and Muslims.

👉 This deceitful, wicked and evil person always lied and continues to lie.

Each of the following descriptions of deceitful leaders perfectly apply to Abiy Ahmed and the forty thieves:

👉 Deceitful Leaders use manipulative behaviors to achieve goals.

👉 Deceitful Leaders display a low tolerance for open communication. They control information.

👉 Deceitful Leaders divide people and focus on narrow issues that may be part of an unstated, deceitful goal.

👉 Deceitful Leaders give orders and specific direction sometimes without rationale.

👉 Deceitful Leaders use emotions (with bias toward negative ones).

👉 Deceitful Leaders want control and dutiful obedience; “punishing” those who are “out of line.” Individual initiative is rarely appreciated.

👉 Deceitful Leaders do not hesitate to use positional authority to further an agenda.

👉 Deceitful Leaders lack humility.

👉 Deceitful Leaders often mislead with half-truths, lies of omission, feigned ignorance or rationalization.

👉 Deceitful Leaders criticize, intimidate and blame.

Case #1

👉 Debunked: No, These Photos Don’t Show The Destruction of Aksoum Airport in Ethiopia

Aksoum Airport, located in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, was damaged on November 22, according to Ethiopian news agency ENA, as part of the ongoing conflict between the Ethiopian army and the separatist Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). However, some of the photos circulating online that are said to show the airport were actually taken during conflicts in Libya and Ukraine.

On November 22, the Ethiopian national press agency ENA reported that Aksoum Airport in the northern province of Tigray had been destroyed by “TPLF extremists”, or members of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front. The Ethiopian army has been leading an offensive against this group for the past three weeks.

On the same day, images showing the damaged interior of an airport terminal were shared hundreds of times on Facebook. In the post, the user laments the destruction of Aksoum Airport.

However, a reverse image search (click here to find out how) quickly shows that these images aren’t, in fact, of Aksoum Airport. The first two photos show Tripoli Airport in Libya. They were taken by journalist Marine Olivesi on September 2, 2014:

This Facebook post from November 22 also claims to show photos of the destroyed airport in Aksoum.

However, the photo below is actually an image of Donetsk Airport in Ukraine. It was taken from a video filmed by CNN correspondents on February 2, 2015. The Facebook page Sidaama Today was quick to criticise the misuse of this image outside of its original context.

Case #2

👉 Debunked: Photo of Weapons Seized in Ethiopia Was Taken Before Tigray Crisis

As the conflict between Ethiopia’s government and dissident Tigray forces escalates, a photograph circulating on social networks purports to show weapons handed over by soldiers of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). The claim is false; the weapons were intercepted at the Sudanese border back in 2008.

The image was posted on Facebook on November 9, 2020, five days after Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed ordered troops, tanks and warplanes into the northern Tigray region in response to what he said were attacks on federal military camps orchestrated by the TPLF.

Written in Amharic, the post’s caption translates into English as: “Guns soldiers were armed with!! Following the capture of the town of Dansha by our heroes, the traitors are handing in their handguns after coming out of their hideouts”.

The image shows hundreds of handguns lined up on a blue tarp on the floor. Men in military uniforms can be seen arranging the pistols while another takes a picture of the scene. Other men dressed in civilian clothes look on.

AFP journalists reported from the town of Dansha on November 10, 2020, soon after the Ethiopian army took control of the western Tigrayan town. Since then, the army said its forces have reached within 60 kilometers (37 miles) of Tigray’s capital Mekele.

However, this photo is unrelated to the ongoing conflict in Ethiopia and in fact shows weapons confiscated at the Sudanese border by Ethiopian security back in 2008.

Not weapons from TPLF soldiers

A reverse image search shows that the original photo was used in local media reporting the event. According to Ethiopian site Ezega, Ethiopian security intercepted weapons smuggled through the Tigray region via Sudan.

“The real origin of the shipment and the intended recipients are still unknown. Ethiopia has in the past accused Eritrea for incursions and support for domestic opposition in Amhara and Oromia regions”, it reads.

The story was picked up by Africa News as well as Addis Standard, one of Ethiopia’s leading news outlets.
