The side effects of Hate Politics on the Brain!
The learned man "Al Mariam" has posted somewhere on the web claiming a 150 square kilometer of land was given to investors! I don't know why he rushed to bombard without double checking this simple arithmetic. How possible it is to get this much of land in Addis Ababa? Does Al Mariam know how much is 150 This is more than six times the size of Mekele or more than 7 times the size of Nazareth!
According to the original sources, it is 150,000 square meter. When this converts into square kilo meter, it is 0.15 not 150.
The original source is here;

Note to our Readers in Toronto.
There is a group in Toronto trying to raise funds using 1984 Ethiopian famine picture with Berhan Woldu's picture. Many of you asked us to post a note that the group is not a genuine group and money raise will not go to the intended cause! We have no way to confirm the group authenticity and if money raise will go to the intended cause. However, we can tell you the Ethiopia government nor any credible friends of Ethiopia are not sponsoring this event! You may want to check local authorities if there is any legal means to force the group disclose who they are and how they intend to channel the money raised to Ethiopia. (Aigaforum Feb 06, 2016)
