Abduction of ONLF Representatives in Kenya

Ogaden Today asked me to comment on the abduction this week in Nairobi, Kenya, of two Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) representatives and the implications of this development for peace talks between Ethiopia and the ONLF.  Ogaden Today published my brief response on 2 February 2014.


  1. some idiots expect the Ambassador to take side on a matter that is not clear, just because ONLF's cyber worriers claimed an abduction......If they have the guts, they should go out there and fight if there is any fight to be fought..But the truth is the people of Ogaden are fighting poverty alongside their Ethiopian brothers and sisters...These people are nothing but mouth pieces for extremists that have an ideological and strategic agenda in the region...

  2. My take on the 'abduction'
