Is Ethiopian Televison Up to the Task?

The Ancient country is slowly becoming a modern country thanks to the far sighted EPRDF leadership. The country is in the midst of a historic transformation in all spheres... Information is power they say! It has been that way all along but it is more so now that the world is living in the information age.
The state owned Ethiopian Television has been the sole information provider... Sadly many think the agency has not been up to the task... Currently there are two Television stations on the air (ETV and ETV2). Instead of both stations being managed by the same agency the government should lease one of the stations to be managed by outsiders with a clear mandate to compete with ETV or at the very least have the two stations address different needs.
If the city of Addis Ababa can be reformed and reconstructed to become a modern city, certainly, Ethiopian Television agency can be encouraged to do more.Do you agree…

Have your say!

Several reporters misrepresented the facts of the visit and its implications for both countries..

Somalia's instability is not Ethiopia's fault
Your article "Violence, fear and confusion: Welcome to the Horn of Africa" (World News) implied Somalia was at peace before Ethiopia's intervention in 2006. Assumptions used to criticise Ethiopia in relation to the instability are unfounded and fallacious. Lack of peace and stability in Somalia date from the overthrow of Siad Barre in 1991.

The following is the first in a series of reports from the Ethiopian village of Koraro, an important testing ground for the Millennium Village Project,... Five years ago, the northern Ethiopian village of Koraro was on the edge of survival.Today, the village has a school, a health clinic and a market.

As Ethiopia - Egyptian accord takes effect, Al-Ahram rubs salt on old wounds
By Genet Mersha ( As any prudent person would, I value pragmatism, especially if it promotes mutual benefits and facilitates common search for solutions to difficulties in inter-state relations. In that regard, official pronouncements by the prime ministers of Ethiopia and Egypt at the year’s end have somewhat conveyed that very impression about their budding relations

In the middle of a Green Revolution:Ethiopia in 2010!
(Isayas A. 01/06/10)-In the old days when Derge was the supreme power of the land and EPRDF was fighting to topple it, the slogan that mobilized the people to rise up and take arms and defeat the enemy was “be tsiferena..!” It means with our own hands and fingers! Today with Derge gone and a new federal Ethiopia in place, the enemy the public is raising its arms once more again is against poverty. The new slogan is “yichalal”....
