Statement of AWO/FIO

Is not in an Old Book Copied on a New Paper.

Humans in the course of their history have observed multiple forms of social, economic and political ups and downs that symbolize failures. Oromo nation as an integral part of this human history have gone through many downturns induced by either internal or external forces. Ancient and modern records equally witness that foreign elements can easily be controlled than infiltrators that serve the purpose of an enemy. The failure of the society to weed those insiders out is the beginning of a total doom. As once John F. Kennedy said “mistakes remain a mistake only if people fail to correct it”. In Oromo struggle, repeated mistakes have been committed, and Oromo leaders as well as the public failed to learn from yesterday as we live to see it today. Front for independence of Oromia (FIO/’AWO’) would like to make it clear to the entire Oromo nation in general and its supporters all over the world in particular that Obbo Aman Kadir Kamsare obbo Hussein Bati and Obbo Sura Abduljalil Kimo as of today, are no longer the leaders of our vigilant Organization.

FIO’s prime duty is to carry on the order of the day which is the struggle for independence of our country and liberation of Oromo nation. We are committed to healing process among the Oromo nationalists and various political organizations. Our people need true leaders who are fearless, courageous, visionary, selfless, careful in their deliberations, and actions. The members and genuine leaders of FIO look forward to the front-runners who can play the role of acceleration of history and not regression. The multitude of challenges our nation is currently facing made it imperative that leaders of our national struggle against occupation must be industrious, and creative to find an exit from set backs and down turns. Such leaders are true sons and daughters of their nation that can build strong power-winch that pulls our nation out of national embarrassments’ quagmire. These types of leaders deserve acquiescence of their people. To the contrary, those fond of their own pursuit of passion are what Oromo call “Raada eegee oofii nyaattu” which literally means self distracting persons or in words of Mao Tse Tung “The shadow that should be suspected at all times”

FIO is sincerely thankful to Obbo Aman Kamsare,Hussein Bati, and Obbo Sura Kimo for the service they rendered to our beloved organization. Nonetheless; they adamantly were ignoring the quest and critics of the members of FIO persistently for over a year and half period. They were acting irresponsibly beyond the power vested in them with out authorization and endorsement of the members. Their unilateral decision is against the adopted constitution of our organization. Hence, the members and remaining leaders are compelled to take this final verdict of expelling Obbo Aman Kamsare,Hussein Bati, and Obbo Sura Kimo from all forms of duties and responsibilities of FIO they were entrusted to, based on their own action. As of today, they don’t represent our organization at any capacity. However, we regret their willful choice of departure from our organization.

The presence of Obbo Aman, obbo Hussein, and Obbo Sura in the process of the said unity underway Minneapolis (MN) since October 27, 2009 shall not constitute the participation of FIO in any reckoning what so ever the case is. This can signify merely their personal will exercise and is not that of our organization. We are making it public that they are not representing the organization but themselves.

We believe Unity is not an event but a process that has to follow a customary manner of procedures on its route. Unity is a process that requires a continuous and usually bottom-up broad based participation of every stake holders at each level of organization. This action supersedes the decision of few individuals or interest groups on behalf of the mass, just a synonymous act of the tyrant regime we are fighting against. FIO staunchly support strong unity of purpose among Oromo people and its political organization that wouldn’t break at every turn of events or challenges.

It is a concrete fact that order does not come from disorder, order always come from order. Likewise, the unity built on shallow foundation sooner or later is prone demise. Such unity won’t do the Oromo people any benefit, rather wide open a ravine for our enemies to easily infiltrate and inflict irrecoverable harm on our national interest. Therefore; the members and leaders of FIO equivocally differ to current attempts of unity since we believe it has missed the bridge that takes us to a true unity among like thinking and like acting forces.

Front for Independence of Oromia as a young nationalist Organization committed to the best interest of Oromo nation has defined its goal to fight against aggressors that use the national cause for their egos and self-serving interest. FIO herewith renews its promise in defending the national interest of Oromo people and mobilize all its resources to this end. The members, supporters and leader of FIO vehemently denounce any deliberate act of appropriating our nations cause for personal benefit as well as systematic division mechanisms implanted thereby. FIO once again reassure our nation that we are bound to take the cause of our nation to the peak of the mountains no matter how tough the challenges ahead may be. We call up on the whole Oromo nation to remain standing shoulder to shoulder with all Oromo nationalists regardless of creed, region or kinship affinity.

Men fail because of their mistakes or due to action of others; society continues its stride forward each minute riding with time. Above all, a nation that set its goal will achieve it; no matter how hard the journey or how dear the cost may be. We are certain that our nation will come out of this crisis and eventually enjoy a decisive victory over its historical enemies.

Lastly we make it known to our citizens and the world at large that new leadership of Front for Independence of Oromia (FIO) shall be announced in a very near future.
