TV Tigrai - Amharic - The government is on a dangerous path! Dec 14, 2018



The federal government of Ethiopia is becoming extremely reckless by allowing the continued killing and displacement of the Qimant people in northwestern Amhara Region. To make it worst the federal government is allowing poisonous propaganda to be aired over government-owned media against "Tigrigna speaking people"! This heroic lady stood up in front of Gedu Andargachew delegation in Seattle Washington, the USA on Dec 2018 to speak on behalf of the persecuted Qimant people. People's call must be heard else they will revolt to be heard! Kudos to those who posted the clip. Dec 12, 2018!

VOA Tigrigna: Liya Kassa Tigrai government communication head- Dec 10 2018


We heard some social media pundits from "demur" camp are belittling the reason ten of thousands of Tigreans came out in mass to a demonstration against injustice the other day! They said they [demonstrators] came out to protect an individual! We understand the "demur" camp are living in utopia land but unless the individual they are dying to get hold of is Jesus Christ or the Prophet Mohamed it is unimaginable such huge crowd will be gathered together to voice their anger against his persecution!. Shet Meanta! The second time cannot be harder than the first!

Ethiopia's Torture Problem and the Court of Public Opinion
The airing of Tuesday's torture documentary came several weeks after another documentary appeared on state television involving state-owned Metals and Engineering Corporation (METEC). While this may signal a new commitment to justice, the government should avoid the past practice of using these documentaries to undermine defendants' right to a fair trial by mobilizing the public to support a judiciary that was far from independent of state control. Human Rights Watch and others have continually stressed the importance of accountability and justice but trials not turned into politicized shows targeting those seen to be opposed to the government and its policies,
Even HRW, staunch supporter of the Abiy government can't hide its displeasure! HRW in a way is wholeheartedly agreeing with the Tigrai demonstrators!

Prospect of Information Warfare in Ethiopia
Aesop 12/12/18 - The forces of darkness have resurrected in Ethiopia. These zombies are roaming in the social media. They nest online clicking "like war" on their Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. accounts. They cook information as a dark magic to bend reality to their fantasy. They hurl disgusting insults they've earned. Truth be told: who is the lion that defeated the Derg...

The Grave Danger of unbridled hatred: Is there a stop to the madness?
Zekarias Ezra 12-13-18 - It was a mere 30 years or so ago that Ethiopians were living under a military dictatorship camouflaged as a democratic republic. Beginning with the massacre of the 60 high government officials, the Derg continued what it did best - killing anyone that it perceived as a threat to its power. The killing program, dubbed, Red Terror, claimed, by some accounts, as many as 500,000 Ethiopians.

Defying Ethiopian Toxic Ethnic Politics
Tecola W. Hagos (11 December 2018) - I have never supported federalism based on ethnicism or on language for Ethiopia. I believe in a "unitary" system with guided limited local autonomous provincial administration, with few incorporated urban structures as needed. I justify my position of a unitary administrative structure based on two sold grounds...

It's back to the future as IMF spots opening
We could all see that the 'Meles model' was running out of steam, but the treatment must be strategic, and above all it must be homegrown. Instead, the IMF seems to be exporting a failed prescription from the 1980s. After a 16-day stint in Ethiopia, meaning fine dining with the political elite and hobnobbing with our executive class, the International Monetary Fund delivered its annual report on the economy.....

Abiy's big steps shouldn't obscure undercurrents in Ethiopia
The global media - as well as ordinary Ethiopians - have been positive about the country's improved political gender representation. But this shouldn't obscure the fact that ethnic tensions remain rife on the ground, and could flare up at any point. There are three disturbing trends in Ethiopia: tensions within the ruling party as well as a lack of a formal roadmap to outline where it's taking the country; continued ethnic tensions; and the lack of transparency around the deals done with insurgent groups....
