“…I lied when I publicly declared 15 years ago that the constitution of The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) was penned in a manner of broad-based representation….I knew it was not. I knew it then….It has been and will remain a scar in my conscience….So… (Oh! You forgiving people of Ethiopia) pardon….” This came from the now purportedly reformed pen of one none other than the former Ethiopian president-turned opposition politician. He made this expression of seeming penitence only as late as last month in his acceptance speech as one of two newly enlisted card-carrying members of UDJ

I’m not sure if it is out of feeling personal responsibility, social justice or community pride, but I can not seem to stop asking the question; where are the more than 100 innocent Irob abductees, who were taken by the Eritrean government in 1998, 1999 and 2000, today?

Some of the so called private presses in Ethiopia have been more deterrent than
helpful to promote "mechachal" and the building of democratic culture in the country. In an ideal world the private press itself as well as citizens should have denied such publication to exist by denying ears and eyes. But Ethiopia is a young democratic country and lacks such power thus why ETV may have been forced to do an expose on some of the private press performance over the years. However the State Media should be very careful not to instill fear on the private press and not to appear favoring one paper over the other in doing such programs.
