Ethiopian Brigadier General Kemal Gelchu crossed into Eritrea on Tuesday, said the Ethiopian Defence Ministry, which described him as disgruntled after being denied a promotion.

"He defected under the cover of night, because he knew that his attempt to sow discord among the rank and file of the armed forces was about to be exposed," the ministry said.

Dear Mana Oromoo Swiss editor the above statement is made by the layer so called Ethiopian Defence Ministry. It is shame for him. No more to cover the truth.. The General is defects to Eritrea because of the undemocratic move of TPLF, and Fascism of the so called Ethiopian Government.
