Development and Enviroment-The Price?

The pollution clearly shown in the Aljazeera clip is probably caused over the many years since the dam was built. Many developing countries like Ethiopia are faced with a daunting task of development while keeping the environment safe. Though one can understand the problem with Koka dam, Ethiopia cannot continue to allow such pollution continue unabated. The question to ask is why are the people drinking from such polluted lake? In the old days our parents used to tell us to not drink from river ponds if we do not see a moving insect or animal in the water! Let alone from such obvious polluted water. Are people informed about the pollution and if so why they keep using this water? If the clip showing kids drinking and washing is simply a production to make points across, we can understand, but if it is not can the responsible authorities educate the people around and put a fence around the part of the lake polluted in question so animals and people will not have easy access. We pray the lake is not lost and can be saved!

Thought for Today

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage. by Ralph Waldo Emerson by Ralph Waldo Emerson

How do you say – Get real about Ethiopia?

UDJ joining MEDREK have sent a jolt to the Extreme Diaspora
(Listen to Dumbfound Diaspora).
The then junior partners in 2005, who have now found a side kick in UDJ, seems too impatient to be diplomatic and are saying get real.
Bulcha commenting on unity and kinjit has this to say (listen to audio. (Ouch! After Bulcha dress down Kinijit and inheritors of Kinijit – did you say Yebase Atamta!), well here is more from Dr Beyene telling it like it is, to get over it--what he calls irredeemable sickness or Sebara Musica. (Audio Beyene)
     And if you need more on the confusion that is setting in among the extremists, add Engineer Gizachew’s "our association is strategic and that they [Gebru and Seye] have come begging for apology ". and Asrat Tase’s dose of Obama inspiration?  and their latest articles...Wiring Ethiopian Diaspora Through Civic Dialogue and Consultation".
As a reminder think hard about the $90,000 spent for lobby by the then Kinjit only to get ONLF to the White House, the flirtation with AFD, the red carpet to hustlers and hate politics of the last three years and judge for yourself if lessons have been learned. .
