Commentary on Ethio-Eritrean new relationship W. Yilma July, 8, 2018 - I watched Ethiopian TV the arrival of Dr. Abiy in Asmara to meet President Isayas. I congratulated our prime minister for his courageous action to break the deadlock between these two countries. I am sure the ordinary people of both countries are happier than the elites of both countries. Because it is them who benefited a lot than the elites. I am cautiously optimistic that the action taken by our prime minister may bring the intended peace.

Ethiopia's Somali Regional State Denies Torture Claims Ethiopia's Somali regional government has forcefully denied allegations of systemic torture at Jijiga Central Prison, setting the stage for a potential showdown with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. After three months of hibernation, HRW is back at it again. Either the crude oil production news in Somalia Region that PM Abiy joyfully announced a few days back has unnerved their handlers or their color revolution agenda in Ethiopia is not done without the destruction of the Somali regional government.
To PM Abiy:if you really think there were torture chambers in Ethiopia in any Killil/Region bring the culprits to justice! HRW has an agenda and truth be told their agenda cannot be yours unless...! While on the same subject, PM Abiy what happened to your own government Human Right Report about the persecution of the Kimant People in and around Gondar? Who is responsible? Why are you silent on this issue?

More on the recent terrorist act in Addis Ababa - According to knowledgeable people Tamrat has talked the person responsible is a female named "Shegitu" from Western Oromia, Ethiopia. Authorities should come clean on this one so the rumor mill subsides and innocent civilians and security people who may have been apprehended on suspicion are let go. PM Abiy remain true to your words and do due diligence so that innocent people are not harmed and persecuted!!
Neoliberal Imperialism Creating a Fragile Ethiopian State:Foretelling Irreversible Tragedies Mogos Abraham, PhD 07 Jul. 2018 - Weakness, fragility, and failure of a governance system are sequenced sociopolitical and economic conditions that cause national tragedies. Consider, for example, the nation-state of Somalia, Ethiopia's immediate neighbor. It failed about 30 years ago to function as a nation of law and order, and remains a tragically failed country. Somalia has become a budgetary burden to the UN and the AU...

There is darkness at the end of the tunnel! Temesgen Kebede 07-07-18 - One does not have to be a clairvoyant with paranormal qualities to see what is happening in the country.. The number of parades and puffery supported demonstrations, the repeated and elevated deployment of intellectual and academic credentials of some personalities in office appear by design to stun and disarm critics ...

The answer is: absolutely not.There is only one race - the race that all people of the world belong to. Ethiopia has no disparate races but different nations and nationalities...
Constitutional Order: Open Question!
In the recent few weeks, we are hearing from several legal scholars and EPRDF members that there is a deliberate violation of the Ethiopian constitution. These violations are expressed in several ways including in the pretext of expressing support for the new prime minister. Top leaders of the government seem to see the other way instead of addressing the violation before it gets out of control. In my opinion, some of the federal and regional leaders are implicitly endorsing these violations (example- the recent Bahirdar rally). Given that the country has been building institutions that would uphold constitutional order and that would enforce the law (when there is a violation), we are not observing these institutions taking any action. My question is, can any of the regional justice departments or offices of the general attorney bring a legal case against those behind these violations to the supreme or federal court? We commonly see this in Western countries - good recent examples are those against the Trump administration. If the law of the country allows, why are such actions missing so far? Please invite legal scholars to provide clarification. Concerned Aiga Reader! July 2018
Dr. Abiy Ahmed's "Train of Change" Has Neither Clear Direction Nor Known Destination Mezgebe Gebrekiristos, Ph.D.July 6, 2018 - In a saying widely attributed to the Chinese, one finds a typical example of the "wax and gold" meaning in which Ethiopians are well versed as part of our literature. That adage is "May you live in interesting times." Though seemingly a statement of good intent, the saying is misleading and is more of a curse than a blessing.

Look north, to Ethiopia, for progress In 2015, Ethiopia had became the largest economy in the greater eastern Africa. Last year, Ethiopians produced $5.6 billion more goods and services than Kenya.Benjamin Franklin, the sixth President of the United States, said, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail."Ethiopians have mastered the art of economic development plans. Eyeing middle-income status by 2025, they, in 2010-2015, implemented the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) ... PM Abiy your handlers may have convinced you otherwise but in the end, your premiership will be measured against the last 18 years of Ethiopia's economic growth. Do not squander the huge advantage you have to continue the economic progress. Stay the course and get rewarded. Your success is Ethiopia's success! Do not dash the hope of millions of Ethiopians for peace and progress!
LOOT, RAPE, MURDER AND GET PARDONED LATER:WELCOME TO ETHIOPIA OF ABIY AHMED Tecola W Hagos (2 July 2018) - I am aghast that PM Abiy Ahmed would welcome rapists, looters, murderers into the fold of Ethiopia under his Government.
