"በሪቱ ጃለታ- 20 ሚሊዮን የአውስትራሊያ ዶላር ሽልማትን ለሀገሯ ያበረከተች ወጣት"

VOA Tigirgna Coverage about alleged killing of Eritrean crossing the border!
It is amazing of all the killings that happen every day to Eritreans fleeing the country by their own government VOA Tigrigna found this story so news worthy! It is an open secret Eritreans as old as 5 years are leaving the country in hundreds. In fact one official told us they were so dishearten when they saw the young kids crossing everyday they decided not to publicize it to keep the sanity of Eritreans as a society! Parents have lost hope in Eritrea they are forced to send their kids to Ethiopia for better life! We are not sure what the motive behind this news is if it is news at all, but, some Eritreans in Diaspora better think twice and start working hard to save their country and people. Shaibia is enough to blame Ethiopia for everything !

Few years back we were delighted at last the majestic mountains of Adwa that helped patriotic Ethiopians to defeat the Italian invaders were to be developed as a tourist destination. To date nothing has been done in fact the flag poles erected at the designated park site stand stripped of anything! The mountains, thanks to the inhabitants and the work done over the years to rehabilitate the environment by the local authorities and REST, are lush and green ready to be exploited as tourist destinations! We can not tell you how sad we felt when we saw nothing has been done to-date with all the promises! . Even Yeha the ancient Ethiopian civilization site that rests in between these majestic mountains is a neglected site. The new ETO needs to clearly address such mismanagement and negligence of tourist sites around the country!

Ethiopian Minister of Water, Energy and Irrigation Alemayehu Tegenu won't seek consent of any other state for building Blue Nile Dam
ADDIS ABABA (AA) – In an exclusive interview with The Anadolu Agency, Ethiopian Minister of Water, Energy and Irrigation Alemayehu Tegenu said that his country will never ask for the consent of any other state for building a multi-billion-dollar hydroelectric dam project on the Blue Nile.....

Injera diplomacy and honouring heroes the Ethiopian way
When President Museveni delegated the Prime Minister, Dr Ruhakana Rugunda, to represent him at the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Tigray Peoples’ Liberation Front (TPLF) in Mekele, I did not know that the experience would leave lasting....

Ethio-Egyptian Nile Nexus in the ISIL Aftermath
Habtamu Abay, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 03-01-15 - The Nile basin is the kernel of human civilization. Ethiopia and Egypt are two of the very few most ancient Nation States on planet earth. Ethio-Egyptian relations date back to prehistoric times....

Egypt earmarks $2bn for S. Sudan dam project
February 27, 2015 (WAU) – The Egyptian government has pledged $2 billion for the construction of a multi-purpose hydro electricity power project on Jur River...[It is interesting Egypt is doing everything to stop the building of a hydro dam in Ethiopia but planning to build one in South Sudan! Egypt should think twice before tampering with the wetlands of South Sudan for short term gains...the wetlands are critical to the eco system of the region and the world at large!]

The Politics of Envy and Bad Discipline
SAMRA from San Diego March 1st 2015

British support for Ethiopia scheme withdrawn amid abuse allegations
The cruelty of some of the western institutions that swear in the name of the poor in Ethiopia has no bound. HRW and others will surely laugh all the way to the bank when their sponsors award them for job well done but the poor people in Gambella gets nothing out of this except more misery! How can any one with sane mind oppose any villagisation in Ethiopia? The source of our people's destitution begins with lack of access to basic needs which villagisation solves! In any case we are glad the Ethiopian govt is not a banana govt. The main driving force for change in Ethiopia today is not external aid. With or with out(Bitsifrina) is the driving force for change in Ethiopia today!!

Eritrea's jabber clues its detachment from reality
Senait Gebre 02-26-15- This week the regime in Eritrea issued a statement to react to what it called an "unwarranted and calumnious act of hostility".Upon reading such a hyperbole statement, you would ask: Did anyone launch war against Eritrea?

Spy cables reveal African Union assassination threat
Secret intelligence documents leaked to Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit reveal that spies in Addis Ababa were alerted to a plot by "an unnamed state" to kill a top African Union diplomat....[The fact that Addis Ababa home to AU and many world diplomats has not faced any significant successful attack by terrorist or otherwise so far is a testament to Ethiopia's Security and Intelligence capability. The document seems more a copy cat approach to the famous wikileaks more than an eye opening investigative report if you ask us!]

Tainting the developmental path a futile exercise

Dedebit- the Cradle of Ethiopian Renaissance!
Mekonnen Amare 02-25-15 - Forty years ago, a bullet from an old Kalashnikov gun was fired as a sparkle for the foundation of TPLF (The Tigray Peoples Liberation Front) which, in practical terms, proved a harbinger for the rebirth of Ethiopia.
