Debretsion Gebremichael’s leadership of the TPLF and Tigray has been an utter failure, marked by a shocking lack of foresight and preparedness in the face of imminent danger. His inability to adequately prepare for deterrence strategies has resulted in catastrophic consequences for the people of Tigray, who have paid a heavy price for his incompetence. Despite the grave situation, Debretsion has shown no remorse or accountability, instead shamelessly issuing press releases as if nothing has happened.

It’s unconscionable that Debretsion, with his dismal track record, continues to cling to power without offering any sincere apology to the suffering people of Tigray. His feeble excuse of having only 9 thousand special forces against multiple external threats is not only inadequate but also demonstrates his complete disregard for the safety and well-being of Tigrayan civilians.

In any other country where the rule of law is upheld, such catastrophic failures of leadership would warrant severe consequences, possibly even criminal charges. Yet, Debretsion remains in power, shamelessly vying for the presidency while failing to acknowledge the magnitude of his failures.

The people of Tigray deserve better than a leader who is incapable of ensuring their security and prosperity. It’s time for Debretsion Gebremichael to step down and make way for competent leadership that will prioritize the needs and safety of the Tigrayan people above all else. Anything less would be a grave injustice to the countless lives lost and the suffering endured under his failed leadership.
