NEWS: Latest Batch of Recruits Complete Their Training (August 2023)

OLF-OLA (August 29th, 2023) - In the ever-evolving landscape of Oromia, the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) continues to be the bedrock of resilience and determination. Our strength, rooted in the commitment of the Oromo community to defend its homeland against the onslaught of the Abiy regime, has witnessed a series of fortifying events.

Today, the Western Zone announced that its latest batch of recruits have completed their training and conducted their graduation ceremony in the presence of senior officers and the public in Horo Guduru. The graduation ceremony (video below) included a martial arts exhibition as well as an oath-taking ceremony. In their speeches, the senior officers present reminded the recruits of the unique challenges that will face them as they face both Fano terrorists and the oppressive forces of Abiy Ahmed in a two-pronged war.

This graduation marks the third in less than a month. On July 29th, the Central Zone's latest batch of recruits held their graduation ceremony in the presence of jaal Sanyii Nagasaa, esteemed member of the OLF-OLA Executive Committee and the top commanding officer of the Central Zone. In his speech, he urged the new soldiers to safeguard their unity and to conduct themselves in a manner fitting of an OLA soldier. Their rigorous training sessions, dedication, and camaraderie were evident, and this day marked a significant milestone in their path.

Likewise, on August 13th, jaal Marroo Diriba, our respected commander-in-chief, personally recognized a select group of individuals who had undergone specialized leadership training. These individuals were bestowed with officer ranks, further cementing their roles as future leaders within our organization.

Each training completion, each oath taken, and each rank bestowed is a step forward in our mission. The OLA, with its deep-rooted principles and commitment to the Oromo cause, will continue its efforts to fortify its ranks and uphold the values it stands for. Thank you for your continued support and belief in our cause. Together, we forge ahead.

Victory to the Oromo and All Oppressed Peoples!
