Kinijit is out, MEDREK with washed out disgruntled x-EPRDF leaders is in – but the rituals of election by the anti-government force Masquerading as a legal opposition remain the same. They are no where in the day to day life of the people but when they hold press conference they insult the intelligence of the youth, rave, complain, defame, de-legitimize the government and institutions and ask for negotiation, and forewarn about ballot boxes that will be stollen and gear toward post election tumult to reclaim “entitled victory” in an election for which they are not sure to will join, for which they have no coherent agenda (And idiotic and gibberish analysis - Listen to Seye’s lame and embarrassing Sherif was leader now is leader then explanation)
By now Ethiopia has held three elections and there is system in place that needs to be strengthened.There is NO need for NEGOTIATION with the government to change the rule of the game.

Time will tell if the Benedict Arnold's will fair better than the Hailu Shawil's.

Pity those who are trying to bring her down by scavenging any bad news that will defame the EPRDF govt. How could any sane person chastise the EPRDF govt when it comes to poverty reduction? Something is wrong with some of our bloggers!

Didn’t I tell you? Obama and the EPRDF will coexist
Dibaba Regasa (02/13/09):-
In my previous posting, I informed readers why the opposition inside and outside of Ethiopia should get worried about Obama's administration. Some people laughed at me. I was serious however.
