lsantegaru : Message from Tigrai Women's Affair Bureau On Ashenda 2011


Meles Zenawi Remembered! He is truly missed! The country is never the same ever since his untimely death, Meles died 7 years ago. One thing for sure Meles tried his best to leave a better Ethiopia behind him. We wish everyone left standing today can do similar. Are you trying your best to leave a better Ethiopia for the future generation?

They are accused of using business email fraud schemes and romance scams to con victims - many of them elderly. Police have so far arrested 14 suspects across the US, 11 in Los Angeles alone.

Best experience every community should adopt!

Ethiopian Launches Cargo Flights to Bangkok & Hanoi
Addis Ababa, 23 August 2019 - Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services, the Largest Cargo Operator in Africa, is pleased to announce that it has started once weekly freighter service to Bangkok, Thailand and Hanoi, Vietnam as of August 16, 2019

Violence against woman!
Berhane Alemayoh 8-22-19 - When Mrs. Fanita Fay Solomon who is doing a Nobel work for women in Tigray suggested to me to write my take condemning violence against woman in Tigray, tears started to cloud my eyes. My knees got weaker and weaker because, I grew up around men who were violent towards their wives, domestic workers and even to the local woman who owned their own business.

Egypt's Nile water committee reviews trilateral negotiations on Ethiopia's GERD
The committee discussed several phases of the lengthy trilateral negotiations on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), which yielded 'no agreement', Cabinet Spokesman Nader Saad said. 'The futile negotiations prompted the Egyptian side to put forward a technical proposal which takes into account Ethiopia's energy needs without detriment to Egyptian...'
PM Abiy, no one lives for eternity. If you want to be remembered as the PM who finished the Dam then do the right thing! Do not put your head down when it comes to the negotiation! Egypt is emboldened because of your weakness. PM Meles and Hailemariam faced more pressure than you and didn't blink nor put their head down! For the sake of all Ethiopians and for the sake of the Oromo people whom you represent finish this Dam!

Sudan transition: Lt-Gen Burhan sworn in as Sovereign Council chief

The leader of Sudan's Transitional Military Council (TMC), Lt-Gen Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan, has been sworn in as leader of the newly established sovereign council. He will lead a group of six civilians and four other military officers as part of a planned 39-month long transition to democracy. There will also be a prime minister and cabinet. Now that Sudan is done like Ethiopia, where will the color revolutionaries jump next to join a popular uprising and attempt to hijack the change in the name of 'western democracy'? Eritrea you say?

Passion for Development in Tigray: Can it be sustained?

Yohannes Aberra, PhD 8-20-19 - I don't think there is any sober mind that does not believe that the only way for the future of Tigray is embarking on sustainable development. It is the only pill that cures all political, social, and economic ills. Everyone agrees that it is long overdue. Many of the predicaments that the people of the Region are suffering from...

Why does TPLF badly need the next election to be held?
Asmelash Yohannes (PhD, Mekelle University School of Law) August 20, 2019 - From a strategic point of view, the leaders of TPLF (Tigray People’s Liberation Front) know, or they are predicting to say the least, that the ruling EPDRF party may not survive the upcoming general election. You can call this a gamble or a bluff! But it could make sense if you have the time to crunch the numbers!

Under Pressure, IS Militants in Somalia Look to Ethiopia
Islamic State militants in Somalia say they will release jihadist materials in Amharic - a step unmistakably aimed at winning recruits in restive, neighboring Ethiopia....ISIS - is reaching out to Ethiopia's Muslim community in an attempt to take advantage of ongoing ethnic and political unrest in Africa's second most populous nation."There are many groups that are disaffected and disgruntled by the way the transition is unfolding," Bryden said.
Does this mean we will be seeing more bloodshed in the country? Almost all countries where ISIS take a foothold are a failed state today! In the name of promoting 'western-style democracy,' Ethiopia is going down fast. It is really sad to see this generation failing the people and the country! What happened to all the promise keepers!

Federalist facade for centralist front
August 18, 2019 by Rene Lefort, William Davison- Despite TPLF efforts to snap Ethiopia out of political stalemate, an incoherent ruling front staggers sluggishly towards reform. More destabilizing jostling looks likely, as the Prime Minister tries to cobble together a centrist alliance. With its unprecedented public attack last month on the Amhara Democratic Party, the Tigray People's Liberation Front appeared to be trying to bring Ethiopia's political impasse to a head by exacerbating the existing crisis.

Research hits home for MUSC professort
In 2001, Mulugeta Gebregziabher, Ph.D., took a leap of faith and left his homeland of Ethiopia to come to the United States for a better education. Little did he know that being 8,000 miles away would somehow bring him closer to the country in which he grew up. From behind his desk at 135 Cannon St., the Medical University of South Carolina professor and biostatistician smiles as he thinks of his hometown of Adwa...

ሹክ፡ የኢህአዴግ ስራ አስፈፃሚ ስብሰባ እንዴት ነበረ?
አለምአየሁ ምህረቴ 8-16-19 -
Interesting Read! It seems the road ahead is indeed a dead-end road unless Abiy changes course! Will he change course or stop at the dead-end to see who will blink first- Federalist or Neo-liberalist!

Ethiopia's Developmental State Model: A Reflection on Francis Fukuyama's Article
Prof Asayehgn Desta August 2019 - Given that the core matrix of Ethiopia's Developmental State Model was economic growth, from 2005 to 2015, Ethiopia remained as a compelling example of how an African country could achieve steady state-directed economic growth, social transformation, and infrastructural investments... Professor Francis Fukuyama (June 11, 2019) attempts to authenticate the "state quality" and compare the difference between the Ethiopia's Developmental State Model and the East Asian Developmental State paradigm.

What Ethiopia needs is an independent prosecution
The last few months have, however, brought to the fore the complexity of governing Africa's second-most populous country where ethnic cleavages have high political saliency. The initial euphoria that followed Abiy's unexpected rise to power gradually transformed into bewilderment and even pessimism in some quarters.The prime minister has faced criticism, especially because of the perceived deterioration of the security situation and inter-ethnic skirmishes...

Maximizing employment from Investment and Economic Growth in Tigray
Makonnen Tesfaye; London, UK August 2019 - Employment, in particular youth unemployment, is increasingly becoming the key economic, social and political issue facing the Country, the Regional States and Tigray; and as such has been the fundamental driver of the current challenges of social unrest and political instability. The aim of the outline paper is to stimulate discussion and point out the direction of potential research and economic policy-making further towards the imperative of developing

The company has nine shareholders and seven board members including Girma Wake and Gabriel Negatu, director-general for Eastern Africa Regional Center at the African Development Bank.

Mr. President and Mr. Cuccinelli, what would you know!
TeKa 8-13-19 - I am an immigrant myself and a proud naturalized citizen. Lately, the current president and some of his top officials are breaking my heart. Not long ago, the president himself asked the four congresswomen to go back to where they came from if they do not agree with the way the country is being governed.

Diaspora for Development!
What a wonderful worth remembering diaspora tour held by Tigrai development Association/TDA! The 2nd International Diaspora Festival Tigrai which brought together diaspora Tegaru from North America, Europe, China, Middle East and Africa for the same objective took place in a wide range of programs in Mekelle, the beautiful Northern Star Capital of Tigray as of 24 to 30 July 2011 E.C. The event was regarded as the most important...

Manufacturing public debate
A public official is a ventriloquist who speaks for the state: he takes an official stance and speaks for the group he is addressing (for their benefit and as their mouthpiece); he speaks for and on behalf of all; and he speaks as a representative of the universal.
