Tigrai Then and Now: Investment Profile

Dear Readers, when we posted Ato Dawit's Interview we hoped it will trigger a healthy debate. We are delighted it has created such an awareness. Having such healthy debate will go a long way to enhance democracy and development. It seems we all agree there is more to do but we also all agree a lot has been accomplished!

Hanna Petros Testimony: Victim of torture & former conscript of indefinite 'National Service'
Over the weekend I heard Elias Kifle sincere apology for promoting Isaias Afeworki as man of the year and his engagement with the regime in the past. I never thought Elias will have courage to say sorry! Elias Kudos! Just continue on this road and join the orderly civil society-- it is much easier to bring change using the legal and civilized road!

The question I have next is why are other Ethiopians repeating the same mistake Elias did? Listen to Hanna testimony above and ask your self why those who claim to have been an "EPRP" members like Berhanu and Getachew in the past are taking Isaias Afeworki as a friend in this day and age! Does EPRP mean something to these guys? How could they choose Isaias over EPRDF to promote democracy- if that is what they really want...I know I am trying to be nice here!

    ዓድዋ ኣብ እዋን ዕብየትን ስግግርን ኢትዮጵያ
    ብማህተመስላሴ ፍስሃ (ዶ/ር) 08-02-15

    (Comment:- A US Politician once said "all politics is local" How true! Ethiopia is moving fast. Unless politicians realize the sooner and come up with a plan to address issues like what the article is telling us, there will be many Adwa all over Ethiopia. No one can stop people from wanting to move out of the poverty shackle. Not in woyane/eprdf time at the very least! The message is have a capable bureaucracy to lead the GTP-II campaign in every city and town! Another dismal performance like GTP-I during GTP-II will not be acceptable by many!)

    In a nutshell...
    No official word that we know about Dr Berhanu( see his current position here) and his lieutenants movement restriction from the state dept. However there are credible rumors US naturalized citizens and green card holders who are members and officers of G 7 may be in trouble with US Law. Experts who are familiar with US law on the subject matter also told us once G7 is declared as terrorist organization or even as a non desirable by the state dept, any fundraising event and donors will be scrutinized. The best thing the Diaspora community can do is to stay away from such meetings be it here in DC or London. As you know the Shaibya infested support groups all over the world are trying to maximize their fundraising effort due to Berhanu move to Asmara. The US and other countries may be investigating already if such fundraising are being used as backdoor venue to collect the 2% tax collection from Eritrean origins the UN has declared illegal act that needs close scrutiny if the money collected is used for terrorism.
