This book titled My Life, My Vision for the Oromo and Other Peoples of Ethiopia, written by his Excellency and Honorable Obbo Bulcha Demeksa is an outstanding contribution to the Ethiopian peoples in general and bupcha the study of Oromo history, culture, economy, political and social life in particular. It consists of twenty chapters mostly eye-witness accounts, experiences and activities of the author who had given efficient and effective civil services for long years at National gulcha International levels in various capacities of leadership and management.
The rich information contained in the book are not only exciting, interesting and well organized with sad Oromo realites but they are also authentic and credible. Tesema Ta a History Professor, Addis Ababa University “From time to time, an inspiring book captures the insensitivity and cultural chauvinism of the Amhara and Tigrayan ruling elites towards the Oromo, their gook for marginalizing the Oromo politically and controlling their resources, and one man’s efforts at making a difference so eloquently expressing the importance of establishing genuine federalism for achieving full autonomy for the Oromo within Ethiopia.
The book depicts the author’s fascinating journey through various stages of his life. It is a remarkable journey filled with obstacles, indomitable human spirit that enabled the author to achieve what was beyond imagination. One does not expect a boy from a remote bukcha of Boji Birmaji, in Western Wallaga, who lost his father at the age of ten, becoming a famous personality on the Ethiopian political landscape as well as on the international stage.
It was a true miracle for the man, who was asked to change his strange sounding” Oromo name to a nice Amhara one which reflect cultural arrogance and insensitivity of some chauvinist officials of those days to rise to such position of power so rapidly. His success attracted the envy and jealously of some officials, who through bureaucratic infighting and intrigues forced Bulcha Demeksa to move on the bool stage, serving both at the World Bank, and as a diplomat at the United Nations.
The author returned to Ethiopia and sought an election to the Constituent Assembly and won with a landslide in Undeterred, the author became one of the founding members of Awash International Bank, which he serviced as president and first CEO. He was one of the founding members of the Oromo Federalist Democratic Movement OFDMwhich he led for six years and served as a member of Ethiopian parliament fromwhere he distinguished himself for championing Oromo language to be the second official languages of Ethiopia.

My Life, My Vision for the Oromo and Other Peoples of Ethiopia
It was a pleasure to read the book. I admire Bulcha for the tenacity he had to fight and achieve his goals. Bulcha went through difficult times when he was young. However, by comparison he was also fortunate to come from a relatively better off family. I appreciate his passion to aim higher and do everything he could to achieve his dreams.
Personally, I am not exactly sure what Bulcha wanted his readers to know about his life. I am not even sure what he considers as the biggest achievement in his life. It is clear from his book that he came from a remote area of Ethiopia, walked two hours daily to go to school and later on managed to be go to the USA to study and became a big government official. I get that very well. What I am missing in the story is the Bulcha who is the father and the husband.
What type of family life did he have? What type of father was he? What type of husband was he?
Bulcha I really have a question for you. What happened to her? Is that a sensitive topic to talk about? Do you even realize how much she sacrificed in order for you to achieve your dreams?
I think you should have dedicated one chapter for your first wife, Menbere Duguma? I was very disappointed.
My Life, My Vision for the Oromo and Other Peoples of Ethiopia by Bulcha Demeksa
It looks like you used Menbere to achieve your goals. How can the Oromo people trust you that you are there fighting for their cause and not for your won glory?
That being said, I like the fact blok you propose federalism as a way of resolving the Oromo issue in Ethiopia, because there is no Ethiopia without the Oromo people. I hope our young generation will continue the fight and give the beautiful and courageous Oromia people xemeksa freedom they deserve.
