The Continued Fabrication of Ghelawdewos Araia. (Achamyeleh Tameru)

The Continued Fabrication of Ghelawdewos Araia.

Achamyeleh Tameru

The City University of New York history and political science professor Ghelawdewos Araia is at it again; his barefaced fabrication on the history of Tigray and Ethiopia altogether serves no good to anyone including the people of Tigray who he claims to “represent” and his own legacy and career as “a historian and political scientist”.
What is harming the people of Tigray today is the dishonesty of Tigrian nationalist “elites” who are engaged in false narratives with no evidence and a drop of knowledge. Ghelawdewos Araia is so volatile and confused, his speeches are so different, in dates, facts, and statements in contravention to what he said as recently as a few months back. This man has no equivalent and parallel in telling his audience continued fabricated lies.
There is an adage in the Amharic language that says “Lies cannot be repeated” which means if one lies today, he cannot repeat it in the same manner since he forgets what he said earlier. Truth always wins and prevails. Lies have been very rampant and frequent in the last four decades since the TPLF founders fundamentally stood on not only lies but also hate, theft, treason, infidelity, corruption, wanton killings of the innocent, mass arrests, displacements, and other atrocities.
Ghelawdewos Araia is a diehard supporter of this fascistic group that cannot succeed in any activity unless they are blended with lies. Coming from an environment, where lying is championed and institutionalized, most elites from Tigray like Ghelawdewos Araia, habitually prefer to preach falsehood to their audience to attain the unattainable.
We are witnessing how these doomsters and gloomsters have led Tigray to the brink of destruction with the dream of erasing Ethiopia from the world map in collaboration with their masters. This unscrupulous individual claims to know the history of Wolkait and the surrounding territories. Based on this claim he was officially invited to debate with me in a public forum. Since lies are indefensible and cannot be repeated, he declined the debate slurring me as “a chauvinist”. This week he appeared on the TPLF affiliated YouTube channel in an attempt to disprove what artist Tewodros Teshome discussed with the congresswoman, Karen Bass.
Ghelawdewos Araia talks about different versions of the same topic in different languages and times. He tells dates and stories contrary to what he himself stated earlier.
Ghelawdios Araia claims Wolkait and the environs belong to Tigray, has NEVER been part of Semien/Semien and Begemedir/Gondar since Ethiopia’s beginning. (You need to give more details of what he actually said; otherwise, this entry sounds like an advertisement for your book lol which I don’t mind at all, but it needs an example of what he said and your reply).
I have published a book entitled “The Wolkait Affairs”. It is available on Amazon. The book is the first comprehensive study of the administrative boundary, historical geography, social & population history of Wolkait, Tegede, Telemt, and Humera provinces of Ethiopia from ancient times to the dawn of the 20th century. Based on inscriptions on artifacts from Axum civilization through medieval, later, and contemporary sources, the book covers the history of Wolkait for the last 1660 years.
In the book, there are more than 700 references and evidence included, including letters of Tigrian kings and nobles supporting the fact that Wolkait has always been an integral part of Semien/Semien and Begemedir/Gondar and the land belongs to the Amharas. No Tigrean “elite” has been able to refute the facts presented in the book to date. The book is serving as the most efficacious antidote for ignorance, habitual lies, treason, and the expansionist intentions of the TPLF.
If indeed Ghelawdewos Araia wishes to debate with me I advise him to come forward bringing any document, evidence, and facts anytime anywhere in any media of his choosing.
Ethiopia prevails!
Truth wins and prevails!
Compradors will collapse!
