Thank you Meskerem and thank you ETV! This is a wonderful insightful interview. We hope this type of interview will continue. Infact we hope ETV will turn this to a late Sunday evening program where key figures will share their thoughts and views on a wide range of topics. For a starter it would be interesting to interview former leaders of the EPRDF govt! Let people hear what they think as far as the transition goes now that it has been a year since it started! What will they say about the Tehadeso movement with the advantage of hindsight? Ethiopia’s history of the last decade is rich, it can be told and retold by many, let us hear them pls!
