The Habasha Dabtaras always talk about history as if we live in the past. But none of us live in the past, only in the present, though our present is in the hands of the Tigre tribe.
Yes, there is what we call "history", yet, history doesn’t just happen on it's own but it is made by people. As such, when we look back into history, we find that people who made our lives so challenging today are the Dabtaras who love to talk about history.
While the majority Oromians are trapped in this fast-paced life commotion and chaotic momentum, the Habasha Dabataras beat the drum of the past, while arming their nafxanya relatives in Arbbaa Guguu, Minjar, Bulgaa and Wallo as we speak. But what would happen if we all live in the past just like these Dabtaras? How things would turn if all the Oromos go back to those critical moments where the Amhara's king Minilik soldiers line up the Oromo mothers and young girls and cut off their breasts and force them to walk through the market while shouting "Ineen iyaayyeeh teqexaa! Ineen iyaayyeeh teeqexaa!"
