We are deeply grief stricken by the loss of a national liberation leader, J/Jarraa Abbaa Gada, who had altruistically devoted over five decades of his life for the Oromo national liberation struggle. The extent of our grief is immense when we think of a void that the passing of this iconic leader would leave in our national liberation efforts.
