ETHIOPIA AND ERITREA:CARVING A COMMON DESTINY-REALY?
Tecola W Hagos (17 July 2018) - Before I recovered from watching in the Internet the dazzling, completely exhausting, and emotionally draining events of the visit by PM Abiy Ahmed of Asmara/Eritrea, now I am dealing with no less exhausting and emotionally draining events of the historic visit by Pres Issaias Afeworki of Addis Ababa/Ethiopia, which was just concluded. As PM Abiy emphasizes often...


Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Who Is the Ugliest of them All?
Temesgen Kebede 07-17-18 - Some forty years ago, a 14 year old EPLF conscripted fighter (manjus) who was guarding prisoners of war as they were relieving themselves after a long stint in a dark dungeon, lost his temper and shot...

How Ethiopia and Eritrea made peace
The appointment in April of a new Ethiopian prime minister, 41-year-old Abiy Ahmed was vital. On taking office he called for peace, as did his two predecessors. But in early June he went further, by offering to implement the UN peace agreement, including its controversial ruling on the location of the border, without preconditions. The political and generational shift within the ruling Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) heralded by his rise had made such fresh thinking possible...

Ethiopian Shelves Plane Deals, Maps Out Privatization Plan
The CEO said that privatization plans, sanctioned by Ethiopia’s ruling politburo last month, are more likely to see foreign involvement in various operating units than an outright stake sale, given that Ethiopian Air already makes a significant economic contribution to the nation while being efficient, competitive internationally and able to raise capital for growth.




Ethiopia: The new China?
Ethiopia's economy has grown at a faster rate than any other African country in the past 10 years and it's been trying to open up its economy. But foreign investors and local businesses complain a shortage of foreign currencies like the US dollar are stifling the private sector.


PM Abiy order the Army to intervene to restore peace in areas bordering Oromia and Somalia Region/Kilil.(Amharic)
GCAO July 16, 2018 -
We are glad PM Abiy has ended his honeymoon journey on the love train and started to be serious. Ethiopia needs a strong and progressive government. To be honest with you all our readers, we were wondering where PM Abiy priority lies when we heard he was firing and jailing federal government individuals while extremists and anti-peace elements were roaming the country killing innocent people all over Oromia in broad daylight!

Using the Future to Change the Present: Evolution VS. Revolution
Tecola W. Hagos July 15, 2018 (Reprint) - One must revisit old ideas often for the seeds for new ideas and future ideas may be embedded in such old even ancient ideas. I am writing thus, for I am thinking of the time tested almost apocryphal statement from Ecclesiasts 1:9: “There is no new thing under the Sun.” Indeed, that maybe the case if we think of time as an eternal present/now. If not, I hold the opposite that nothing is eternally set, but in flux and improvised.


SUSTAINABLE PEACE FOR ETHIOPIA AND ERITREA:BEYOND BORDERS

From the outset, we would like to associate ourselves with those striving to bring sustainable peace and economic cooperation between Eritrea and Ethiopia. We would like to express our readiness to further assist such efforts in any way we can.


Egypt Induced Riots & Instability Have Changed the Political Order of Ethiopia - What is next for Egypt?
Ermias Hailu July 14, 2018 - When the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi decided to launch the construction of the Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam in 2011 by crossing Egypt’s long held red line, it is most likely that he did not do an in-depth and realistic risk assessment and mitigation.


ወያነ አብ ልዕሊ ጫትን ሱስን ትወይን
Amleset Tesfay, July 15, 2018 - The view that drug (Khat or hashish) use is a moral choice is pervasive, pernicious, and wrong (David Sheff, 'overcoming addiction and Ending the greatest tragedy').The world health organization (WHO) has clearly categorized addiction as a disease and many scientific evidences have shown that any form of addiction is a chronic mental health problem.

Eritrean president returns favor, visits Ethiopia as hostilities between the countries ease
ADDIS ABABA, Ethi­o­pia - Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki landed in Ethiopia’s capital Saturday morning, following his Ethiopian counterpart’s groundbreaking trip to Asmara earlier this month amid the warming ties between the once-rival nations.After a two-year war and an 18-year standoff, the two countries have suddenly agreed to restore...
While our hopes are at an all-time high that our people will enjoy full peace now that the two countries are talking again, we can not tell you how fearful we are for our brothers and sisters in Eritrea. The one man regime may be emboldened with all the attention he is getting and increase his repression to forestall any demonstration to demand a free and fair election as well as a constitutional order in Eritrea! Sources are telling us the Europeans will demand Isaias Afeworki to open up and allow citizens to benefit from a constitutional order soon. At the moment no one knows if the US will join the EU but it is a foregone conclusion it will do so in due time. Our fear is instead of opening up Isaias will increase the repression!

But I have made an effort to meet with old friends from different regions and discussed with many young people of different...
