Oromia Media Network was a rare non-Amharic voice in Ethiopia’s media landscape. Oromia Media Network (OMN) is an independent media enterprise established in the U.S. six and a half years ago. Hence, OMN was an ‘alien’ star beaming a light onto a “black hole” within the stellar constellation of Ethiopia’s historically inequitable media universe. In his interview on the OMN, Hachalu had spoken about the Oromo understanding of who Emperor Menelik II was. Another book by a foreign observer, the French Catholic missionary Martial De Salviac, who had travelled extensively across the Oromo country, appears to precisely corroborate Bulatovich’s account.
