Egyptian Company Finds Large Gold Deposit Near Hedase Dam!
የግብፅ ኩባንያ በኢትዮጵያ ትልቁን የወርቅ ክምችት አገኘ.....a while back we read a news story about Egyptian companies seeking investment licenses to operate in Tigray and Afar. We wonder then why all of a sudden they are showing interest to invest in these key locations? We have our suspicions then why they were interested in Tigray and Afar but why would the Ethiopian Government give such license close to the Renaissance Dam to an Egyptian Company? If the mighty US can deny at first the Dubai Port Authority from managing key Ports in the USA for national security reasons, why can't Ethiopia do likewise? Why can't Ethiopia put in place a condition...similar to what the US did with the Dubai ports? Tigray, Afar and Benshagul are key places to have a foot print for any Ethiopian adversary today!!!!
"Group: Ethiopia Regularly Records Phone Calls"
A rights group says that Ethiopia's government regularly listens to and records the phone calls of opposition activists...(...without passing a judgment on HRW accusation in this story, post 911 can any one be surprised if any government uses all means available to it to thwart terrorist act? Even the most powerful nation with all kinds of means in its arsenal that can be used to thwart potential terrorist act does seem to monitor its citizens communication for all kinds of reasons - didn't we hear all kinds of accusations made against the CIA/NSA including the monitoring of Senate Offices! as well as leaders of Germany and Brazil?
