Kudos to you PM Abiy. If you win Isaias Afeworki to become a partner for peace you have a legacy and we like it! And if you can help Isaias Afeworki open his heart and bring democracy to his people you will really become "ነቢይ" as the mother from Tigrai told you last time!

Eritrea's president to visit Ethiopia, embassy to re-open ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Eritrea's president will make a historic visit to Ethiopia this weekend, cementing a stunning rapprochement with his giant neighbor after a generation of mutual hate and mistrust. For the record Wedi Afom(Isaias Afeworki) is coming to see Ethiopia the Woyane build over the years while he was hiding in the foxhole waiting for Badme hand over! The following sentence says it all..." The country, with a population of 100 million people, has seen rapid economic growth over the past decade". PM Abiy be honest and tell the president the two countries could have done better. Tell him Hawassa Industrial Parks is one among many in the country! Kudos to Dr. Arkebe BTW!
Comment: "Constitutional law for the dummies" Tariku Teresa 07-13-18 - It is an oxymoron that the author of this article chose this title when he is dumber than the dummies he espouses to chastise. The first misstep of the argument is that he thinks others have the right whatever they wish to say and do but that the critics are wrong and should not voice their opinions or else they may be breaching the rights of the others, which is preposterous.
“Unsafe at Any Speed” Aynalem Sebhatu 07-12-18 - Now that I have wrapped up my six week visit in Ethiopia, I would like to share my observations on the current political situations in the country. To be sure it is important to note that I did not get a chance to visit all regions. But I have made an effort to meet with old friends from different regions and discussed with many young people of different...
Public Plea to Tigrai Government from Displaced Tigreans There are over 20 thousand Tigreans displaced and uprooted mainly from Amhara and Oromia regions living a destitute life in Tigrai. These people need help! PM Abiy and Dr. Debretsion should visit these folks and listen to their quagmire. The patience of Tigreans and many others Ethiopians in similar situations is limited. Ethiopia can not go this route for long. July 12, 2018

Constitutional law for dummies: the flag controversy in Ethiopia Liyusew Kidane 07-11-18 - I will demonstrate how we must frame controversial issues in their context using the flag controversy as a showcase. We should debate a political, legal or constitutional issue within its proper analytical framework. The above quotes show the absurdity of regarding disagreements in political opinion as a constitutional breach.
The Eritrea Visit-forgiveness and reconciliation Zekarias Ezra 07-11-18
I have not yet heard anyone who is overwhelmingly negative to PM Dr. Abiy’s visit to Eritrea. We must all give credit where credit is due. Reaching out for peace after long 27 years of madness is a noble action. What has happened has happened. The 1998 war between the two brothers and sisters was utterly senseless.

More on the recent terrorist act in Addis Ababa - According to knowledgeable people Tamrat has talked to, the person who was 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!!

Can Ethiopia's Abiy Ahmed make peace with 'Africa's North Korea'? The man largely responsible for this change is one of the most dynamic and charismatic politicians to emerge in modern Africa.
Abiy Ahmed was elected prime minister of Ethiopia by the country's ruling coalition in April...
When the streets of the Eritrean capital filled with cheering crowds to welcome the Ethiopian leader, an obvious question arose: what will be the impact of his liberalizing crusade on his partner in peace,Mr Isaias, who leads one of the world's most secretive and repressive regimes dubbed Africa's North Korea. [The Irony - While praising Abiy, No credit is given to EPRDF for bringing Abiy to the top! And, the fact, the said reformist is making peace with a known dictator prolonging misery to Eritreans! Irony aside, why can't the world leave Eritreans and Ethiopians to live their life?]

One that comes readily to mind is the expression“Tell me your friends and I will tell you who you are.” If we take that adage seriously, we would completely accept the surrealistic event that just happened...
Ethiopia's Abiy and Eritrea's Afewerki declare end of war The leaders of Ethiopia and Eritrea have signed a declaration saying that the state of war between the two countries is over.
A peace deal ending the 1998-1999 border conflict has never been fully implemented and there has been tension between the neighbours ever since.
