Belligerent Ethiopian regime moves army towards the Eritrean border
Following the recent meeting between Ethiopian securities in the Prime Minister's Office, the ruling Front, EPRDF, has started deploying a large number of soldiers and heavy weaponry to Shire, Tekeze, Wolqayiet, Metema, Armachiho areas of Northern Ethiopia.
Frightened by the reactions of the people in Northern Ethiopia since the abduction and arrest of Andargachew Tsige, Secretary General of the Ginbot 7 Movement, the Front has deployed an increased number of the Force to crush any form of "protest".
The regime's intelligence in the Northern part of the Country had tipped the securities that Ginbot 7 may advance to the Capital by distributing weapons to the farmers in cooperation with the Eritrean government. The Front has now distributed modern telephones to its members and investors found in the
region to do intelligence work.
Currently, when the number of the members of the Ethiopian National Defense Force that defect is increasing, the regime's new call for new recruits is not receiving enough responses.
The defecting soldiers state that the Defense Force is at a low moral due to nepotistic organisation and structure, poor quality of the meal provided and the high cost of living.
Meanwhile, sources say EPRDF is at a risk of break up. The ruthless actions of the EPRDF leadership especially following the death of the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, has annoyed and raised eyebrows even among the members of the Front.
The continuation of the accusations and arrest of opposition parties and leaders under the pretext of the anti-terror law has ignited strong opposition and whinging within the lower and middle starta of the Front.
The Front does not have its own ways of solving internal differences other than evaluation and the fact that it took violent measures against the larger population of the Muslim community during the Ramadan fasting season fuelled the opposition within the Front.
The sources say EPRDF has collided with opposition parties, journalists, the civil society, members of the association of the Orthodox Christian faith group of Mehabre Kidusan and also with the majority of the public that is living under the poverty threshold, which makes it clear that it cannot be elected in a democratic manner and therefore, it has decided to forcefully crush any form of protest.
The rise of such members that oppose these actions is one of the signs that the regime is at a high risk of break up, the sources note.
