Honoured Professor, the present
or future political condition of our
country is very serious. Our people had longed, and much struggled, to
that state of bliss which is called freedom and democracy and which is
constantly receding like a mirage. The conductor has been changed and
music goes from bad to worse. That wonderful constitution given by the
United Nations has remained a dead letter. And there is no-one who pays
attention to exiles. A man is arrested in the street without law or ordinance
and is imprisoned without justice and leaves prison without justice. As
it is possible to cite the injustice against Dejatch Abraha Tessemma and
family, of which you will have heard.
Be that as it may, although all these trials may afflict us, hope will
severed from us. We shall fight until there exist freedom and democracy
country. It is our complete faith that God will liberate us from these
and from these Philistines, and that, having begun, he will carry through
work of liberation.
Honoured Professor: Please give my best regards to your honoured wife.
May God grant me to see you again.
