Justice in the eyes of the Opposition and some western media: The case of Bekele Jirata
(Aigaforum Feb 5 2009):-It has been known for many that Ethiopia’s inept opposition and their hirelings from the foreign media were and still are on a continued smear campaign on the judicial organ in Ethiopia. Today some of the so-called opposition websites and Reuters have reported about the 'release of Bekele Jirata'. We are sure you have already read the news...What we would like to inform you, based on our sources close to the case, is that the federal prosecution... more

Thought for Today
It takes great courage and massive support to think outside the box and venture into unknown territory. It also takes a conscious choice to accept the premise that our circumstances are self-created; they have become so familiar that we have accepted them as real. Our ability to be creative becomes blocked when we assume that our circumstances will never change. For many, unfortunately, it is more comfortable to feel powerless than to challenge the system. It is change we seek and change we resist, the ultimate human paradox. by James Mapes

What next for Somalia?
As we all know Somalia has been a trouble spot almost since it gained its independence. Although there was some resemblance of peace during the Ziad Barre government everyone knows today’s trouble started during Ziad’ government. Now that Ethiopia has completed its withdrawal from Somalia,... Will the new president, president Sharif help improve or exacerbate the situation?... Will Asmara declare its support to Al Shebaba and Aweys to derail the Sharif government? And what do you think Ethiopia has gained with its intervention in Somalia? ... have your say!

Ethiopia: Desertification Reversed in North
Some of the most severe cases of land degradation in semi-desert areas could be reversed with the right policies, researchers in Ethiopia have concluded. A study of a dry region in the north of the country, whose population had increased ten-fold and whose land had become highly degraded, found that local people have nevertheless managed to coax it back into recovery...
While cynics and ill informed individuals were undermining local NGO like REST giving them all kind of names the country under the leadership of the EPRDF was quietly implementing a policy a) to recover the over grazed and cultivated land b) to revitalize natural streams and remaining forest. This research result can be easily confirmed looking at the vegetation and greenery of the landscape when troubling from east to west across Tigrai . Thank you to those who persevere to change the tide!!

IMF Deputy Managing Director Kato Visits Ethiopia and Discusses Global Economic Challenges with the African Union
"The IMF is committed more than ever to assist governments in the best possible way to adjust to the crisis and get back on track to achieve ambitious development goals. Ethiopia is a very good example of Fund engagement in Africa to deal with those challenges. The country was adversely affected by last year's sharp increase in international commodity prices. The global economic turmoil is likely to worsen the balance of payments and reduce economic growth...In my meeting with Prime Minister Meles, I commended the Ethiopian authorities for having adopted an appropriate macroeconomic policy package to address the challenges
