Note: the regime in Addis Ababa refused to provide the name of all the military and security leadership, their credential and their ethnic composition as the regime policy dictates. Therefore, the list of the names above is provided by insiders in the rank and file of the leaders to Ginbot 7 Movement in 2009. Therefore, the Military/security apparatus should be considered the extension of the TPLF and by no means should be mistaken as the Ethiopian Defense Force.
