Qubee Afaan Oromoo-The Oromo Alphabet


·      Just like the English Alphabet, we Oromoo have the same division of the Alphabet, such as capital letters (uppercase) and small letters (lowercase).  We say “Qubee gugurdaa” for capital letters and we say “Qubee Xixiqqa” for small letters.  Qubee Afaan Oromoo-Oromo Alphabet. Qubee gugurdaa-which means capital letters (uppercase). Qubee Xixiqqaa-which means small letters (lowercase).
·         Qubee Afaan Oromoo or the Oromo Alphabet has also some double letters of consonants than the English Alphabet. These especial double letters are Ch, Dh, Ny, Ph, and Sh. These double letters are called “Qubee dacha” in  Afaan Oromoo.
·         Qubee dubbifamaa- which means consonants: b c d f g h j k l m n p q r s t v w x y z
·         Qubee dubbachiiftuu-which means vowels: a e i o u  
·         In addition to the entire 26 letter English Alphabet, we Oromoo have five especial double letters such Ch which gives Cha sound, Dh which gives Dha sound, Ny, which gives nya sound, Ph, which gives Pha sound and Sh which gives Sha Sound. 
·         In Afaan Oromo or Oromo Alphabet, letters like V, P, and Z are borrowed letters.  These letters are called “Qubee ergisaa” in Afaan Oromoo.

My Freedom Letter book:kitaaba Kiyyaa Xalayaa Bilisummaa: “የነጻነት ደብዳቤ” የምለው መጽሃፌ


This is my book “Freedom Letter” on internet, which was published in 2015. It was written in three languages: Afaan Oromoo, Amharic, and English. I couldn’t publish it in mass, as well as distribute to Ethiopia and many different countries, but many people are asking me about it. On the other hand, many issues that I raised in my book last time are becoming to Ethiopian current issues. Therefore, I have uploaded the “Freedom Letter” on the Internet.  Click this link to find the entire contents of the Freedom Letter Book:

Ethics based military chief Vs ethnics based military chief

                Ethiopia Vs Gambia                      
Ousman Bargier, the Gambia chief of defense said:
“No fighting will take place. People maybe think this is a crisis, but it is not a crisis. This is a political misunderstanding. Political misunderstanding is going be solved through politically, not militarily. No war! We are not foolish. I love my soldiers and the Gambian people…”

This is ethics based military leader not ethnic based military leader like Ethiopia’s military possesses to one ethnic group-Tigre ‘Tigrai People Liberation Front-TPLF’. Ethiopia has 80 Ethnic groups. TPLF-the minority Ethnic Group held all political positions and economical activities. I always compare a country with a country. If we take the case of situation which is going in Gambia and compare with Ethiopia current situation, we can easily guess many things.


If Ousman Bargier were Ethiopian chief of defense, he was from Tigre Ethnic group and he has no mind to say to not kill a civilians or his primary duty is not defend a people (county), rather his primary duty is to defend bloody handed authorities.  However, Ousman Bargier is taking a side of people, not a side of wrong leader. When Ethiopia will have such a military chief?  

Ethics based military chief Vs ethnics based military chief: 

                           Gambia Vs Ethiopia
