Let's ask social media.

The social media reaction in two tweets...

On Larebo's alternative historical facts...

Larebo is not alone, apparently..!

Larebo clarifies his use of the term pastoralists using a biblical example but doesn't back down...

አጭር ማብራሪያ። ዶ/ር ሃይሌ ላሬቦ ከኢሳት ጋር ባደረጉት ቃለምምልስ ላይ አንዳንድ ወገኖች "ዶ/ሩ ያልተገባ ቃል ተጠቅመዋልና ማብራሪያ ይሰጠን" ብለው በጠየቁት መሰረት እንዲሁም ዶ/ር ሃይሌ ማብራሪያ መስጠቱ ተገቢ ሆኖ ስላገኙት የሚከተለው ማብራሪያ ቀርቧል። ኢሳት ሁሉንም ኢትዮጵያውያን በእኩል ለማገልገል የተቋቋመ፣ ለሃሳብ ልዕልና፣ ለዲሞክራሲ፣ ለእኩልነት፣ ለፍትህና ለህዝብ አንድነት የሚታገል የመገናኛ ብዙሃን እንደመሆኑ፣ የተለዬ የታሪክ አረዳድ አለን የሚሉም ሆነ የፖለቲካ አስተሳሰባቸውን ለህዝብ ለማስተላለፍ የሚፈልጉ ሰዎች በኢሳት ላይ ቀርበው እንደሁልጊዜው ሃሳባቸውን ( እውቀታቸውን) ማካፈል እንደሚችሉ ለማስታወስ እንወዳለን። የተለያዩ አስተያየቶችን ለሰጣችሁን ወገኖች በሙሉ ምስጋናችንን ከፍ ያለ ነው። · ESAT

Some users are wondering if Larebo is simply confused. We think not..!
