Throughout his life and against all odds, he fought and sacrificed for the ideals of freedomand independence of Oromiya with unflinching commitment and determination. He was like no otherperson, His extraordinary and heroic record and his significant accomplishments speak volumes. For almost half a century, this monumental son of Oromiyaa pursued the vision for independent Oromiyawith humility and maximum selflessness.
