Never Again!
Jerusalem Barnabas May 17, 2020 - I spent my young life-fighting Mengistu's dictatorship, I was fortunate, I survived to tell the story but many of my peers perished. There would be no words to tell the crimes against humanity committed during Colonel Mengistu's rule. We were just high school children, with little understanding of what our resistance to Mengistu's regime would unleash. Yes, 'the genie in the bottle'. As young, we rose to an incredible political maturity for our age then became the victims of our own struggle.

Thankyou Dade! What a poignant message your article conveys. It is really sad to witness the end of Ethiopia as we know it. It may not be politically correct to say this but I am so proud of my people!

Trump set to restore partial funding to WHO
"TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT" EXCLUSIVE: The Trump administration is on the brink of restoring some funding to the World Health Organization, a month after the president announced that it would be suspended... "Dr. Tedros Adhanom has thoroughly disgraced himself and his organization for four years, but particularly throughout this virus epidemic," Carlson said.

Poor Tucker Carlson, how could he not know Dr. Tedros became WHO director three years ago not "4 years ago"? Fox News should be ashamed! Trump was alone on this one! Not long ago the G7/8 countries left him to hang dry when they announced their support for WHO. Now he is looking for a face-saving reason. -- As for the stupid Ethiopians who campaign against Dr. Tedros in support of Trump... Asafariwoch!! I wish I was not born in the same Ethiopia you were born! Zeru Hagos May 15, 2020

Abraha Castle should refuse to die just like the grand central Terminal did
Ermias Amare 05-13-20 - Ten years ago, when I was going to NYU, students were given an opportunity to write about the challenges of landmarks in urban development.

Solomon Mezgebu 05-12-20 - There is a complicated national crisis in Ethiopia and a political impasse seems to precipitate into an overall paralysis. The government in power, definitely the Prime Minister seems upset that one of the states, namely Tigrai, is planning on conducting an election within the mandated time frame. The PM recently made a not so veiled threat if the state goes ahead with its plan that he will use the might of the government with dire consequences.
