It was by force. Some regions that used to e under Somali control was overtaken by Oromos and the Somali inhabitants were forcefully assimilated.
Tht is wrong tho and why those somali fight back or do something other then accept it
do those Somalis live in oromos land or somalis land
Hmmm

his country is in a civil war that was supposed to end like 3 weeks ago according to derg regime :silanyolaugh:
Don't be like that. This is an Oromo safe space thread.



Im trying to get questions answered here, and not chase away the only active Oromo in this forum :mahubowtf:
 

On Oromo civilizations of the past, read this link:

The so called Oromo migration is what we all did-conquer new lands, to have farm lands and water resources, to feed our people. Part of it was also the Gada system, every 8 years, the warriors had to seek new conquests, and fight, so part of that entailed conquering new lands. but the point was, hey, we have all this cattle/livestock, and need lands and water to farm, so let's go conquer some stuff.
somalis were like :''brazer, we need land and water since we are nomads, so let's go conquer some stuff.''

habeshas were like ''lol yo, our land has been devastated by war, and our elites are too lazy to farm and work, so let's beg the white man for guns, to conquer other africans, so they can work and feed us.''
 
I wanna know why so many Somalis including my parents believe that Somalis and oromos are cousins. Apparently oromos are the only ethnic group closest to Somalis. Is there some truth to this guys or is it just fairytale stories?

I have seen Oromos online all about that cushitic unity. I think they are more ''we wuz cushites n shiet'' than us. We are more ethnic centric. @Abba Sadacha what is your opinion on this?
 
Oromo's are less ethnic centric than some of our neighbors, and we believe that somalis and afars are among the closest people to us, so we advocate for unity with them.



Lol, wut? We're mostly Muslims, so we do not discuss ''mating,'' our deen forbids it, rather, when possible, we get married and keep halal relations with our wife/wives behind closed doors. and of course, satisfying her is a must, and is her right. :D
