Editor’s note: Good news for all who wish to see Afaan Oromo develop and reach the literary height it deserves. Novelist Amaan Hedatoo has translated and narrated GEORGE Orwell’s timeless political satire, Animal Farm, into Afaan Oromo. Orwell’s masterpiece satire, about an uprising of farm animals against their (human) masters, was a rare illustration of how tyranny replaces itself after every revolution and power corrupts even the noblest of men. Animal Farm remains vividly relevant today as it was in 1945. We hope that the Oromo people, a subjugated majority still trying to regain its rightful place in Ethiopian empire, will find this beautifully narrated and translated fable entertaining, educational, and relevant.
