Update: Our earlier report regarding the armed groups merger expectation confirmed with slight change. Please listen the latest ESAT News.
Eritrean Press reported Tigray Peoples Democratic Movement (TPDM) and Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) lead by Brigadier General Kemal Gelchu expected to join Patriotic Ginbot 7 Movement for Unity and Democracy.
Ever since the arrival of Prof. Berhanu Nega (Patriotic Ginbot 7 Chairman) and other Patriotic Ginbot 7 leaders in Eritrea, there has been a rumour that merger talks between the three major Ethiopian armed fronts are underway.
Also Patriotic Ginbot 7’s short social media update strengthen the above news:
While the united Ethiopian front against Ethiopia’s tyrannical regime Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) in progress, Asmara’s Ministry of Information statement accused TPLF’s war drums against Eritrea.
According to Agence France-Presse Eritrea’s Ministry of Information says:
“The TPLF’s sabre-rattling has been a common staple throughout winter. And this has been ratcheted up in the past few weeks,” said the information ministry statement, released Monday.
Asmara said its progress had sparked “frustration bordering on insanity in the camp of the TPLF and its key sponsors.”
