Policy Issues In Kenya and Ethiopia Ahead of President Obama's Trip
(You can also read your own input on this from Ethiopian perspective here (Have Your Say!). Funny Terrence is lobbying on behalf of Eritrea and asking Obama to tell PM Hailemariam not to punish Eritrea! Terrence knows Ethiopia is a fiercely independent country and will not be dictated when it comes to safeguarding its Sovereignty and Security! How could Terrence suggest the one man regime in Eritrea go unpunished when it is disturbing Ethiopia's peace through its mercenary foot soldiers? It will be punished come rain or shine Terrence! )



Dr Debretsion Interview with DWT July 2015


Ginbot 7 Without Andy!

Andy said in one of his interview Ginbot 7 will be history in no more than 3 months since he was the main person behind it! Ever since, Shaibya has been trying to disprove him by keeping the name ginbot 7 by merging it with another organization "Arebegna". However, G7 former members and supporters are making it harder to hide the reality. One by one they are telling us how G 7 is coming to an end!

Listen to the latest one right after Elias Kifle expose of last week. This time from Diaspora room by one former G 7 armed foot solider in Eritrea.
