በሃሰተኛ የትምህርት ማስረጃ የተገለገለችው ግለሰብ በእስራት ተቀጣች

After reading the above news from fanbc, we wonder if the government will also come hard with people who are passing as learned men and women with a fake advance degree! There are some passing as EPRDF supporters if not government employees who are becoming a pawn of the extremists here in diaspora with this fake Degree! As it is, it is hard for some of us to fight the extremists, when you have characters with dubious achievement as supporters of the EPRDF it is even harder!

Ethiopia scrambles to meet property demand in booming capital
ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - A property boom in Ethiopia's capital is putting pressure on the government to keep homes affordable for some of Africa's poorest people who also live in one of its fastest-growing economies.

Israel Chemicals Acquires Allana Potash for $150m
Israel Chemicals Limited (ICL) has fully acquired Allana Potash Corporation, the parent company of Allana Potash.The 150 million dollar sale followed approval by Allana’s shareholders as well as Ontario’s Supreme Court on June 22, 2015, according to ICL’s Country Manager, Yoseph Enyew.... What is Ethiopia's position on this transaction or sale? What exactly is Allana selling to the Israel company? Is it selling its concession in Ethiopia? Basically buying Ethiopia's land cheap with mining license and selling at a hefty profit without commencing production? The govt must look in to this matter and explain to the public if this is not a very good example of "rent seeking" if it has approved the transfer as is!

UK’s point of view
There are people who argue that Andargachew being politically involved in Ethiopia does not leave a lot of room for UK to do the bidding on the behaviour of its citizen. Where does Andargachew’s political activity put you in this regard?...[Funny, we wonder if the ambassador sees also nothing like terrorism when ONLF massacred 70 or so innocent civilian in Ogaden like he sees nothing with G7. We wonder also what the Ambassador think G7 was doing in Asmara? Can Reporter compile Andargachew's publicly recorded speech and pass it to the Ambassador and ask him again about Andy's adventure? No one is asking for Andy's mistreatment. Infact he is getting special treatment by the government. He was shown recently breathing fresh air unlike other detainees.]
