The New Faces of Kinjit or Just another Kinjit alike?

During election 2005 Kinjit folks used to fly often to America as if Diaspora Ethiopians are a voting member of the public. They never understood their fate was determined by the Ethiopian public only. Negerew negerew embi kale mekera yimkerew endtebalew, loosely translated it means, let him /her learn the hard way, Kinjit leaders learned the hard way extremist in Diaspora or pal talk room customers were not their saviors.
Today the new Kinjit worashoch(inheritors) unfazed by Kinjit failure are touring the USA barely a month away from election 2010!Aite Gebru and Dr Negasso replacing Eng Hailu and Berhanu Nega as the new faces of the opposition will surely leave a sour taste with Kinjit old timers making this tour a waste but what on earth are they doing here when they should be in Dembidelo and Nebelet explaining to the Ethiopian people why they should vote for them when they have made a 180 degree turn on the core principles of the Ethiopian constitution? Shouldn't they be spending time explaining why Aite Siye, their spokesperson, said Ethiopia is not a bag full of nation and nationalities?
Or are they here to monitor the conference organized by Berhanu Nega in Washington DC? The conference organizers did say they have invited people from Ethiopia!

Priority misplaced says Dr Kofi.

(Aigaforum 04/05/10)- Dr Kofi wrote a letter to Trans African Forum one of the hoodwinked sponsors of the upcoming conference on the horn to be held in Washington DC. Since then Dr Kofi has received few emails from the extremist. One particular email got his attention and wrote the reply below(included). Ethiopia’s transformation cannot be hidden anymore! No matter how much the defeated nay Sayers from yesterday defame the country, Ethiopia is moving forward!
Thank you Dr Kofi!

Did you Know!

Number of Male/Female Candidates for the House of Representatives by major Ethiopian Political organizations for the 2010 Election
org name male female total
eprdf 357 144 501
medrek 406 15 421
aeuo 308 11 319
edp 219 11 230
cudp 120 13 133

Comment:- Forum (Medrek) has one female candidate in Tigrai and two candidates in Amhara for House of Representatives! We can understand the male dominated group that came from the Kinjit or Derg side to Medrek having little regard to women in politics but what is with ARENA?

Arena, the party of once a woyanit Aregash is fielding one female candidate in Tigrai! edo Aregash?

Does the opposition think Ethiopia’s good governance as well as democratic aspiration can be solved without women’s meaningful participation? How can one honestly vote for the opposition hoping they will do better governing with such glaring shortcomings?

The funny thing is EDP while professing the “third way” has 11 women candidates out of 230! Someone needs to explain what kind of liberal democracy the oppositions are following to have such underrepresentation!..(source=

Ensuring the integrity of the upcoming elections: the need to realize Ethiopians’ ownership of the democratic process
To say that building democracy, as the most effective and most representative form of governance is a process, is to state the obvious. Most of the countries that we generally consider to be full-fledged democracies had to go through a labyrinth of historical and political processes before they achieved the level of mature democratic culture that they take for granted today...

FREEDOM OF SPEECH: The Paradox of its Exercise
Mesfin Ayenew:- There appears to be ferocious and well orchestrated onslaughts to derail the progress made and discredit the achievements accomplished. These attacks have become vicious and frequent at a time when Ethiopia is prepared to hold its fourth national and regional elections. Obviously, these attacks are intended to incite violence and create disorder. This must be opposed categorically...
