Ethiopian Parliament Approved Sweeping Revision of the Pardon Penal Code.
As you recall PM Abiy was heavily criticised for breaking the law when it comes to pardoning criminals and terrorist. The prime minister was even brave enough to bring with him a military officer who abandoned his duty and his soldiers. Though many people appreciate PM Abiy desire to forgive and forget, many are amazed by the ease he is stepping over the rule of law in the country. We are dumbfounded the media and parliament allowed him to do all of the above without saying a word to date! Are people interested to keep Ethiopia intact? If so how do they think it can be kept intact without a constitution respected by all not to mention the Prime Minister? Thank you for correcting or addressing the issue.

We were really worried the Dam progress may have been halted due to the current politics. The rumors were flying that METEC was replaced by Salini and the Egyptians were influencing the construction delay with a proxy hand! Looking at the picture and comparing to the last picture we have, we are delighted to know the progress has not been halted.Thank you.

Ethiopia:Lessons in love and violence; a rejoinder to Koki Abeselome
Alemayehu Weldemariam - My article was received warmly by relatively detached observers of Ethiopian politics. But it provoked vehement responses by more partisan readers, those who seem somewhat carried away by the news coming out of Addis Ababa, or by the trolls who work for hostile parties with vested interests in the changes that are taking place. But in this piece, I have decided to single out a curious reader I found in the name of Koki Abesolome,

How Ethiopia and Eritrea made peace
The appointment in April of a new Ethiopian prime minister, 41-year-old Abiy Ahmed was vital. On taking office he called for peace, as did his two predecessors. But in early June he went further, by offering to implement the UN peace agreement, including its controversial ruling on the location of the border, without preconditions. The political and generational shift within the ruling Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) heralded by his rise had made such fresh thinking possible...
