Woyin: With Daniel Assefa, On COVID-19 Fundraising Campaign - April 2020


DW TV: With Getachew Reda, TPLF Executive Leader on Current Issues. April 2020

Getachew is right - he should not respond to every name-calling and false allegations against TPLF and the Tigrai people. However, Getachew and his governing party in Tigrai must not sit idle and let the opposition dictate what the topic should be. TPLF must take the offense and set the agenda. The country and the people are ready for a capable political leadership. It will be a huge failure if Ethiopia is to fail for a lack of leaders. How could Abiy and his politics win over TPLF and the many good meaning Ethiopians? Something is wrong really!

DR. Tedros won't be President Trump's lamb
Yilma Debele 04-22-20 - The year 2020 with its concomitant infectious disease COVID-19 is as maverick as the US President Donald J Trump. 2020 is really so maverick that it skipped the winter bolstering climate change advocates’ claim that global warming is a threat to our existence unless controlled. The coronavirus has tested western democracy in such a way that...

Mirror in the hall,Did you get my call?
Yared Huluf 04-21-20 - One is constantly reminded of, even if one wishes to forget, the material and psychological impacts left behind on both the victims and perpetrators, antinomes they may be, that still linger on unabated to these days. As there has not been a clean break between the oppressors and the oppressed, as was the case with the colonial masters...

Just curious: Is Wedi Afom Alright? Aiga can you ask and let us know! [from our email folder]

GEZAEE ASEEFA - April 20, 2020 - The Art of War was written by Sun Tzu in China about 2,500 years ago. Sun Tzu was an ordinary man unknown to most people; soon after he wrote The Art of War, he became a famous general. I find it interesting that his writings about war tactics are still perhaps the most prestigious and influential literary works, not only regarding war but also business portfolios and risk management practices all over the world especially in Asia.

Observation of COVID-19 its effect on the Old, Blacks and Women
Jerusalem Barnabas 04-20-20 - In recent months, we have been overwhelmed by Coronavirus and its destructive nature.

Assa Yohannes 04-18-20 - I have never been a member of any political party or group in my life. Neither do I plan to join one after this. However, I like to follow up or watch politics, political leaders, and politics-loaded posts and articles. In the past few years, sitting idly giving deaf ears and blind eyes to the situation in Ethiopia has not been an option for us Ethiopians. Undeniably, the degree of strain and stress of these years has been critical for us Tegaru.

ECA April 2020 - Anywhere between 300,000 and 3.3 million African people could lose their lives as a direct result of COVID-19, depending on the intervention measures taken to stop the spread. Africa is particularly susceptible because 56 per cent of the urban population is concentrated in overcrowded and poorly serviced slum dwellings

IOM calls for halt of Ethiopia repatriations amid Covid-19 concerns
The UN's International Organisation on Migration (IOM) has called for a temporary suspension of repatriation flights to Ethiopia after many of a group of around 5,000 returned from abroad without going through any prior Covid-19 health screenings.

Ethiopian police hold journalist Yayesew Shimelis pending terrorism investigation
Nairobi, April 16, 2020 -- In response to Ethiopian authorities' new terrorism allegations against broadcast journalist Yayesew Shimelis today, the Committee to Protect Journalists issued the following statement:"Ethiopian police had no business arresting journalist Yayesew Shimelis in the first place, and now they are doubling down on his detention by introducing new dubious accusations, revealing how little they care about due process," said CPJ

Feds charge doctor who cited Trump to push hydroxychloroquine "miracle cure"

In Ethiopia, it is the other way around! The Abiy government is charging a journalist for exposing government weakness in fighting the pandemic while happily promoting officials who gave false hope of a miracle drug as ministers!

Ethiopia and Eritrea: A wedding, birth and baptism at the border

Addis Ababa (AFP) - Ethiopia plans to shutter a camp for Eritrean refugees and resettle thousands of its inhabitants in other camps that the UN considers already full, an official said, despite concerns this could make them more vulnerable to COVID-19.

We were amazed by the Saudi government's cruelty why they chose now to deport migrant workers - little did we know Abiy is also deporting and closing refugee camps in Ethiopia. What are Abiy and his Saudi handler's planning? And why is Isaias Afeworki in hiding?

Suspicion and fear linger as Ethiopia's campus wars go quiet
A report by the Centre for Advancement of Rights and Democracy (Card), a local NGO, documented at least nine rounds of university-based conflict since December 2017, many flaring up on more than one campus at a time. In the past two years alone, about 3 million Ethiopians have been displaced and hundreds killed in waves of ethnic and regional violence. Troubles on campus are also in part a consequence of failings in the federal system. Universities, as federal institutions with mixed populations, are much more diverse places than most schools and workplaces. But they have grown increasingly homogenous in recent years, following a shift away from the old pattern of posting students and academics to universities far from their home region.

In Response to Girmay T. Giorgis's Article, Entitled, "Appeal to Counter Separation of Tigray,"
G. Amare, April 14, 2020 - In the beginning, I would like to make a disclosure of myself that I have no association to any political group. As a matter of fact, I have never been a member of any political entity because I always intend to see things independently. In this regard, I would like to appreciate Girmay T. Giorgis for speaking his mind. I respect his political views and preferences to stand against the idea of making Tigrai an independent nation because I strongly believe in the notion ...

The beggar government of Abiy and its stepmothers, the IMF and WorldBank, have a perfect storm at hand to show the world how they would work hand in hand. Locust, COVID-19 and the looming financial crisis around the world will undoubtedly affect Ethiopia's survival. Let us see what they can do. Ethiopia is at the hands of "The Lords of Poverty" What a setback for Ethiopia!!
