Tamrat Layne’s Unrepentant, Opportunistic and Pathological Lies.
Haile Tessema August 04, 2018 - It's not the first time for Tamrat Layne to come up with a story that fits whatever situation he finds himself in. It’s to be recalled that he came out of prison as a self-proclaimed born-again Christian. And – seemingly to give much-needed attention and flavor to his newfound faith – he claimed that Jesus physically appeared in his prison cell to talk to him, and show him the way to a new spiritual life.


Ethiopia's Optimistic, But Challenging Path Forward
Lawrence K Freeman August 3, 2018 - Engineer Bekele, in the minds of Ethiopians, embodied a true patriotic spirit, who led their nation forward. He will be remembered for his lasting commitment to develop Ethiopia into growing sovereign economy in the Horn of Africa. Steeped in the ideas of Meles Zenawi, Ethiopia, unique among African nations, has demonstrated an understanding of principles fundamental to economic growth. Ethiopia's relative success in this effort has produced enemies internally, regionally, and internationally, who oppose any progress towards achieving economic stability...
It will be a betrayal with an immense consequence if the leaders of Ethiopia including the only stable institution in the country, the Military, allow foreign powers to interfere in its internal affairs and derail the progress made so far! God forbid Engineer Semegnew was killed by foreign hands with the cooperation of our own! That will be the day we will curse our creator for creating us as Ethiopians!

Why a photo of Mengistu has proved so controversial
Ethiopia's former Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn has removed a controversial photo he had posted on his Facebook page, which showed him smiling next to the country's exiled Marxist ex-military ruler, Mengistu Haile Mariam.
ምድማር ዶ በሉታ!...It is obvious by now the forces behind the recent change in Ethiopia are very bold and emboldened! Time will tell if Ethiopians will tolerate such ቅሌት for long.

How Ethiopia, Rwanda and Tanzania raised life expectancy to beat parts of Stockton-on-Tees
Ethiopia, devastated by famine in the Eighties, has shown a dramatic increase as well, with life expectancy climbing to 66 from 49 in 1992. Ethiopia, like Rwanda, is among the African countries with a higher male life-expectancy than parts of Stockton
Could such Human Development be considered as "intra-structure" development (whatever it means), PM Abiy has said was missing in Ethiopia? Trying to understand the wisdom behind PM Abiy's infatuation with the extremist's view of development in Ethiopia. How could anyone let alone an EPRDF deny Ethiopia's progress over the last 27 years!


Ethiopian Rolls out Stopover Packages to Promote Tourism into Ethiopia
Addis Ababa: August 03, 2018 Ethiopian Airlines, the largest Aviation Group in Africa and SKYTRAX certified Four Star Global Airline, is pleased to announce that, starting from August 1, 2018, it has rolled out stopover packages without any additional airfare that cater for all leisure needs with a view to promote tourism into Ethiopia.


Political Bollywood in Ethiopia
By Aesop 03/08/2018 - There's a saying: "fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me!" Sun Tsu, the ancient Chinese strategist, wrote that warfare is all about deception.Above all else, war is a psychological endeavor. If one is weak, one poses strong; if one is afraid, one looks fearless ...


On PM Abiy:- Judging by the many feedbacks/articles we are getting and listening/talking to some folks in the diaspora, it seems that PM Abiy is losing most of (if not all) the benefit of the doubt he got early on. In Tigrai, people are amazed at how fast the tide has changed against the PM and his government. Talking to some of our old- time contributors and followers, who are not of Tigrean origin, we learned from them that they are reconsidering their initial unconditional support. We do not know what really has transpired that people are turning against the Prime Minister Abiy. His interference on religious issues, his belittling of the EPRDF and its legacy, as well as his choice of bad words and his populist folksy talk where ever he goes maybe some of the reasons that turned people against him so quickly. One strong old-time contributor even told us that he is very irritated how “Abiy” is disrespectful of the office of the Prime Minister.“አይመጥንም” he added! (updated with edit) Aigaforum 08-01-2018



Where is Ethiopia Heading to?
Zeate Medhin, August 3, 2018 - Three innocent people of Tigray origin were killed by a mobon July 29, 2018 in Jawi district, Amhara region. They were barbarically bludgeoned to death with iron bars and stone. A fourth victim, who is now on intensive care, entered a police station hoping to get protection but the police...


THE VISIT OF PM ABIY AHMED: SUMMATION
Tecola W Hagos (1 August 2018) - The events of the past one week are truly noteworthy, in some respects even historical. I hear people often invoke the stupendous sequences of events as Providence, a Divine intervention to save Ethiopia from looming catastrophic end. I think such optimism is premature. We are dealing here with layers of events just beginning peeling...


Gemfields site in Ethiopia is invaded, ransacked and emeralds stolen
Gemfields, which operates emerald and ruby mines in Zambia and Mozambique, respectively, said there was an invasion of its exploration site in Ethiopia on Tuesday, with a safe kept inside a shipping container broken open and the gems inside stolen.
First, it was Dangote Cement, then Alamudi Gold Mine business and now Gemfields Investment that have been disrupted and ransacked! Is the Ethiopian government serious about inviting investors? The worst part is no institution is questioning the executive branch for what is happening?

Bending over and over to diaspora opposition
MG, July 2, 2018. I am a believer of second chances when the chance is offered fairly and with clear mandate of responsibility on both parties. However, the recent gestures by the new PM of Ethiopia to appease diaspora opposition through unqualified rhetoric ...


Is the Constitution replaced by "I"? If there is nothing there is something.
Amleset Tesfay 08-01-18 - I am the leader of myself. What I do and what I say may not have an impact on other people. But, at least I feel responsible for what I do and say. If you are the leader of a nation of 100 million people, People expect the highest ethical, moral standards and legal responsibilities for what you say and do. At this time, I cannot understand the legal and constitutional responsibilities...


Learning from Africa's Experience of Privatization
Ewnetu Haile 08-01-18 - It has been a while now since Ethiopia announced that it is set to partially and wholly privatize a number of its major State Owned Enterprises (SOEs). These SOEs include some of the largest and well-greased profit machines like Ethiopian Airlines and Ethio-telecom. Others include moderately successful...

Choices the new Ethiopian PM is making and their consequences
M.G July 31, 2018 - I am puzzled by the choices the PM of Ethiopia is making in recent days. I believe that his goal is to lead the country to more openness and democratization. However, the choices he is making are not anything like what the EPRDF we know would do. The irony is, this is being done by the leader of EPRDF who seems too uncomfortable to use the name of his party that gave him the mandate to be PM of Ethiopia.


The sudden end of the Ethiopia-Eritrea war, explained
The current conflict between the two Horn of Africa countries has its roots in an earlier war. Ethiopia annexed Eritrea in the 1960s, spurring a protracted 30-year conflict. Eritrea held a referendum in 1993 in which voters overwhelmingly chose independence, and the two countries officially split. It was a friendly separation, by most accounts.
In spite of your recent comment on the politics of border ("የመንደር ፖለቲካ"), your initiation of the Ethio-Eritrea peace process is appreciable PM Abiy! Borders are about people and if people are uprooted and displaced by their own government there is nothing left for them to keep the constitutional order. They will revolt. And, no one in his right mind will question the resolve of the people of Afar and Tigrai to own their destiny come rain or shine!

The Liberal Order Is More Than a Myth
ighteen months into U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration, domestic and foreign policy analysts alike are in the midst of a bitter awakening: U.S. policy, whether social, economic, or international, may never be the same again. Among the most common refrains from the foreign policy cognoscenti is the warning that Trump has imperiled the liberal international order...

Lingering Questions in the Murder of our Hero Engineer Simegnew Bekele
Zeate Medhin, July 29, 2018. Addis Ababa. - Engineer Simegnew Bekele is a national hero who went above and beyond the call of duty. He led the construction of the Grand Renaissance Dam with unwavering commitment and patriotic zeal. Ethiopia will forever revere and honor him. I am appalled by PM Abiy Ahmed’s reference of this hero extraordinaire simply as...


In Defense of Dr.Abiy
Samuel Estefanous 30 July 2018 - This I will admit-hands down, yes, I have always maintained that eventually a fractured and divided EPRDF is the only agent that secures Ethiopia’s Salvation and smooth transition to a Just, Democratic and United Nation of its Equal Citizens. You know why? From its very inception, the Front has...


Ethiopian prime minister set to speak in Minneapolis
And on Monday, he's scheduled to speak in Minneapolis. The visit to the Twin Cities has spurred excitement in Minnesota's large Ethiopian community. Betelehem Ali, a member of the Minnesota Ethiopian community, said she's excited that Abiy is uniting Ethiopia and that there is hope for moving past decades of violence....
PM Abiy, if you are upbeat about your DC and LA meeting you are wrong, from all indications the crowds and the characters you met in DC and LA by enlarge are not and will not be your loyal troops. They cannot be loyal to the country either! We know you are acting in good faith with these people but trust us these people are not for federalism! For them, it is like (የጨነቀው እርጉዝ ያገባል)! Their support for you is conditional on their perceived understanding of your current politics namely - 'your hate' towards TPLF/EPRDF!Your best shot to bring peace is in Minnesota. Work hard to reconcile the difference among the Somali community and between the Oromo and Somali community in Minnesota. Doing so will go a long way to resolve the problem back home in Ethiopia.
