Let it be known Tigrai is moving forward. Tigreans tried their best to modernize the country and to instill self-confidence to many people and peoples so they better their life. They(We) tried!!
"Col Abiy gave the Military Green Light to remove anyone including himself from power if they violate the constitution to stay on power" This doctrine is not new - the question is will they do it? Everyone knows after Sep 25, 2020, Ethiopia will not have an elected government!

The Truth: Reportage by Liliti Gebru Hagos - On Hedase Dam - June 2020
Joint Eritrean Forces 06-27-20 - No one disputes the sad fact that the state of Eritrea, whose independent and sovereign birth
was achieved through unparalleled sacrifices, is today being led to a dangerous path by a selfappointed repressive autocrat whose misrule has been repressing and displacing the people for
decades without a constitution and the rule of law.
Shame Waltainfo!! We could never understand why waltainfo decided to lie but we are blessed to have people like Lidya Mohammed to expose them. Shame!!
The silence from Ethiopia in the face of the concerted Egyptian campaign to remain the sole controller of the Nile river is very telling about Abiy's priorities these days. It also affirms our well-found suspicion that Abiy has already agreed to hand over control of the Dam to Egypt. In the end, Abiy will sign on the dotted line Egypt and Uncle Sam have prepared for him. We never thought not even for a second Ethiopians will be this weak to do nothing when their country's fate is at stake. Did not know Apathy is this crippling!
Something wrong with the Eritreans? Isaias in Sudan.
If you look around the Horn of Africa, except for Eritrea, every country including South Sudan has seen different leaders at the top since Isaias came to power. Does Isaias Afeworki know shame? Does he think people will not notice how cruel and ignorant he is when he meets new leaders around the Horn? He has outlived his best buddies Gadaffi and Mursi and has seen leaders come and go either by election or coup. What is wrong with Eritreans? They are the most oppressed and yet they can't remove this guy?
The Making of Tigray East African Giant Sisay A. Teklu 06-25-20 - One who visits the town of Aksum definitely, has to raise questions and issues seeking more information to learn what happened in Tigray before 2000 years. Why is Tigray the only place in Sub- Saharan Africa that was capable to have its own letter, number, currency, written language and huge traces of engineering and medicinal knowledge?
Jawar is back!!
Not that we care anymore but Jawar is back! Last time he told the world he was the architect behind the Qerro movement and the coronation of Abiy Ahmed, not many believed him. No one can blame them since Jawar is neither in the Menelik palace nor the head of any authority in Oromia today!
However, it looks, Jawar has a second chance to convince them otherwise now!
And it looks he may convince us too! His page is full of campaign materials to rally the many Nations and Nationalities in the South. Almost all the nations and nationalities in the South are demanding regional autonomy. They are ignoring Abyi's plan for the region that was cooked by Aba Dula recently. The fools in Arat Killo may be laying the ground for the ' one Ethiopia' Atse Menelik and Hailesselaise left them behind even though, almost every nation and nationalities want none of it. Jawar good luck! But, for heaven-sake admit Woyane has given you a formidable tool to use! Imagine where and who you would have been today had it not been for the heroes and heroines of Woyane. Eternal Glory!!
Basta, you are a hater to your core Gebru Boj Boj 06-23-20 - It will be an utter mistake, amoral, unethical, and unscrupulous not to say something briefly about our most observed day of the year: the observance of our Memorial Day which is yearly falling on June 20 to remember and thank our giant martyrs that we cherish lovingly and highly proud of. Thus, may I take this very opportunity to pass the following brief message?
Bereket Semon on GERD Dade Desta: - Two men who constantly make prominence in our memory as related to GERD are PM Meles Zenawi and Engineer Simegnew Bekele. Both are not alive today. If we were to honestly think of a longer list though, Bereket Semon would comfortably make it as he himself was at the center of the very story. We all know he too is not around, though alive and kicking.
Council of Constitutional Inquiry verdict: "Because I said so!" On 11 June, 2020, the House of Federation ("HOF") fully adopted the recommendations made by the Council of Constitutional Inquiry ("CCI") over the constitutional matters referred to it for interpretation by the Parliament. The CCI released its recommendations to the House of Federation (HOF) regarding the term limits of the House of Peoples' Representative....
We are kind of done promoting our Unity in Diversity because we are disheartened by the unfortunate silent majority voices we hear against the constitutional onslaught. But, if you are not, here is good writing against Meaza Ashenafi. The neo-liberals never fail to amaze us! As if we do not know their role in destroying Ethiopia, they are trying to fool us as a fair arbitrator posting such criticism against Abiy. Didn't they post the blueprint for the next mayhem in Northern Ethiopia as a research report recently? They did the same thing in 2014/15!! The North remembers as they say!!!
Not Just "Misery Index," and "Shitholes," Africa has a "House Negro" Problem too! Hailemariam Abebe 06-23-20 - A couple of years ago, the President of the United States, his Excellency, Mr. Donald Trump, called just about every country populated by black people "Shitholes." At the time, a lot of people, especially those rogue leaders, tried to link the president's remark with an insult to the ordinary black people living in those counties.

The Tipping Point: Start of Second American Revolution Mohammed A. Nurhussein, MD June 20, 2020 - Nine months after I arrived in New York City in the summer of 1972 to do my medical residency training, a horrific murder took place in Queens, a sadistic act of violence that has remained forever etched in my memory, haunting, difficult to process and incomprehensible at the time for this newly arrived immigrant from Ethiopia. It was the murder of Clifford Glover by a New York Police Department (NYPD) police officer, Thomas Shea, who is reported to have yelled....
Don't Doubt who sold Ethiopia's interest then and who is selling it now. Zeru Hagos June 19, 2020 - Atse Yohannes lived and died defending Ethiopia's interest across the northern frontier. He defended the country against colonial Italy and defeated the Egyptians and Mahdist expansionist on many fronts until his death in Metema.PM Meles outmaneuvered and outsmarted the Egyptians and was able to convince most Nile basin countries to stand on Ethiopia's side when he started the Renaissance Dam. The Egyptians could not match...

Trump announced on Monday the nomination of Geeta Pasi, who is now the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Africa at the State Department.
Does this mean the "reformer" Amb Michael Raynor is done with his agenda in Ethiopia? Is Abiy slowly being left hang to dry so to speak?
Crisis Group's Unfettered Bias against Tigiray Liul Kahhisay June 17, 2020 - In its ill-informed briefing titled "Bridging the Divide in Ethiopia's North" (Crisis Group Africa Briefing N°156, Nairobi/Addis Ababa/Brussels, 12 June 2020), the International Crisis Group has laid bare its woeful ignorance of the Ethiopian political and historical context and has unwittingly lent a hand to widening the divide in Ethiopia's north. In fact, the briefing might as well have come from the sworn enemies of the people of Tigray masquerading as independent analysts.
Birds of the same feather? Tenbite Yonas 06-18-20 - To most observers of east African politics, the unlikely friendship that has emerged 2 years ago between PM Abiy Ahmed and President Isaias Afeworki may have seemed like a conundrum. If Abiy and Isaias' reconciliation, as representatives of their respective countries, was motivated by a sober desire for compromise in the spirit of peace and mutual interest, it would indeed have been lauded by all.
Problem and Problem Solving
In Tigray Sisay A. Teklu Development & Finance Consultant June 2020 - We all face problems in our personal life and at work individually or institutionally. Some of them might be minor day-to-day problems while other challenges that might arise can be much more significant and complex. Problem-solving is a systematic process of solving a problem when there is a gap between actual and expected results or something that is unsatisfactory for which a resolution or solution is needed.
