Mekelle፡ 2 March 2023(Tigray Herald)

127 Years ago on this day, around 10,000 Italians came to Tigray we hopes to colonize Ethiopia.

Tigray & Tigrayans bravely fought in all 3 battles against Italian invaders – Alaje, Mekelle & Adwa. Generals Alula & Mengesha led and fought in all three, while Awalom played a crucial role in ending the Adwa battle in just 6 hours, which was the secret to the victory.

He defeated Egyptians at Gundet, Gura, Sehatit, Aylet and then he defeated Mahdists At Metema and Kufit and then He defeated Italians at Sehatit, Dougali, Ambalage and Adwa….. Ras Alula Abanega is the real Architect of Ethiopian freedom History.

Ras Alula Aba Nega(Qumbi) is the first african General in History.

Italian: In general, the white people were defeated by the black people for the first time, not in 1896.

For the first time, the whites wore the mantle of defeat in the 10 years before the victory of Adwa, when they were defeated by the heroes of Tigray, shahtit, Gundat Dogali.

As for you, is the 1896 a celebration of victory for the people who shared it, or is it a case of defeat (Tigerna-speaking community) was divided into two for the first time.

Along with this, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s security adviser Riudwan Hussainsaid that Minilik those who sold Eritrea are traitors.

Therefore, the history of Adwa in 1896 is a victory or a defeat?

The victories of the people of Tigray alone against the invaders before the battle of Ras Alula Aba Nega (Kumbi).

1875 = Gundet
1876 ​​=Gurae
1880 = Sahatit
1881 =Metema
1887 =Aylet, Dogali

Regarding this it is said that Hatsi Minilik led the army and fought in Adwa. This is completely false. Abune Petros, general secretary of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, testified that he was hiding in a cave while the war was going on.

Minilik hiding himself on the cave called “Minilik Medebekiya

Therefore,the victory of Adwa marks the end of the heroism of the Tigray army in Sehati, Deguali, Mekelle and Alajen in Tigray!

It was also the day when the Battle of Adwa divided the Tigrinya speaking people like a snake.

“I have been fighting Italy for 8 years; but you have not been able to do it for a single day,” Ra’s Mengesha Yohannes told Menelik when he saw his army fleeing and fleeing.

Anyway, the role of the people of Tigray is as it is and if it were not for the presence of Ra’s Alula Aba Nega, Ra’s Mengesha, Bashay Awwalom and other Tigray chiefs in this battle, the victory of Adwa would have been celebrated in Rome.

Let the truth be told, correct the wrong story.
