    Ethiopia Agrees on First Deal for Privately Produced Electricity
    The state agreed to purchase power at 7.53 U.S. cents per kilowatt hour in an accord signed on Monday during President Barack Obama’s visit to the Horn of Africa nation... We understand geothermal power is more expensive to develop and maintain production but is Ethiopia buying power from such source only to sell it to Kenya and Sudan at a much lower rate? A layman question that needs an answer is: What is the per kilowatt hour Ethiopia promised to sell to Kenya, Sudan and others? We could be wrong but we heard it was less than 6 U.S cents! It is our land and our natural wealth and at the very least the company should be allowed to make its profit but should relinquish the ownership once it has recovered its initial cost!

    President Obama Welcome Reception at the National Palace and Press Briefing - Ethiopia July 27, 2015

    President Obama confirmed what assistant secretary Wendy said that his government does not support any organization that uses violence to overthrow a democratically elected government of Ethiopia. Obama also said the Ethiopian government is a democratically elected government. The issue with G7 and company will reach the tipping point once US and Ethiopia share their intelligence. Is G7 simply bluffing when it said it has started war against Ethiopia? Was one of its officers from London bluffing when he confirmed chairman Berhanu is in Asmara to coordinate the battle? We will know soon after Obama returns and discuss with his intelligence officers as to what Berhanu was up to. We all know what ESAT and Dr Berhanu said- ESAT said there is war between G7/Arbegonch and Ethiopia and Berhanu said he got money from foreign countries! We think the organization is using violence and the Obama administration has no choice but to denounce it!
