We lost one of the Oromo icon, a political heavy weight of our time, whose entire dedication was to see a liberated Oromo nation from the century old Abyssinian colonial yoke. He was a man of great leadership and high emotional intelligence whose time on this earth was dedicated in service of his nation.

In honouring his loss we should all pledge to live up to his ideals and takes in the vision of Oromo nationalism to see through and create an independent Oromia where we will have statues and public venues in his name.

RIP our hero!

I was deeply saddened to hear Obbo Demisse passed away. I met him in person only once, but that was a brief encounter, I think at Ghion Hotel in Addis back in 2018.

I noticed warm and affectionate personality in him, confirmation of what I have heard about him from close friends over the years. What stands out for me is a story a friend, who lives in Toronto, told me about him a few months back. Like many other Oromos, this friend was an admirer of Obbo Demisse. He told me that someone published a book on Oromo affairs. Obbo Demisse kindly volunteered to distribute a few copies. Unfortunately not many people were interested in buying and reading that useful book. Ashamed of the situation and feeling sorry for the author, Obbo Demisse paid his own money and bought those copies, perhaps to distribute freely to those who may "kindly" take for free and consider reading it!

That was a testament of the kind of durable man he was, solid personality rooted in Oromo tradition. That means not only preaching but practising and living Oromummaa.

Sadly, individuals with that kind of virtue are becoming increasingly rare in our community.
