TPLF Politics: Your Concern!
Too many of you have emailed us to know why TPLF CC meeting is taking long and if there is going to be another split? To our knowledge there is no split at all. One of the main reason it is taking too long is the organization is taking the process seriously. The organization is determined to find ways out of the current paralysis in Ethiopia. It wants to set the tone for future engagement within EPRDF by cleaning its own house so to speak! Compared to other EPRDF sister organizations and partner organizations TPLF's renewal is deep rooted. Individual leaders may have contributed to the paralysis but the organization thinks the way out is more by fighting the tendencies that brought EPRDF to its knees more than purging individual players. However, even when it comes to individual players, Abay Weldu who is the least to be blamed for Ethiopia's current woes is being demoted! The demotion of Abay is clearly to be taken seriously by other sister organization which may be thinking to continue with business as usual with the same leadership and the same "thinking" that caused last year's mayhem. As one well informed told us, "Ethiopia will be at a critical crossroad for the near future. We will know if the road is crossed during the coming EPRDF Congress." [Aigafrum Nov 28, 2017}
Who's coming to Ethiopia? Tourism numbers, and what they mean.Last year in 2016, according to the latest figures issued by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, tourist arrivals to Ethiopia reached the figure of 868,780.Let’s take another figure – in 2009 EC, the number of foreign tourists who visited Lalibela, arguably Ethiopia’s premier tourist site, amounted to 25,069, or just under 3% of the total number of tourist arrivals. So where did the missing 843,711 go? ...
Where are the legislators? n what seems to be an unprecedented state of affairs, the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) is conducting its regular session in visibly low attendance. On Thursday the House barely met the required quorum of 50 percent plus one or the 275 threshold in the 547-member Ethiopian parliament.
China Displays Global Expansion with Military Showcase in Africa. China’s overseas military expansion was the focus of a July Pentagon report, which said that Beijing may soon seek to establish a network of similar facilities around the world.China first started constructing the Djibouti base in early 2015. Located near one of the world’s busiest shipping channels.[Shouldn't Ethiopia forge an agreement with Djibouti to have a Naval Presence too? It is not far-fetched to think one day Ethiopia will also be forced to protect its interest similar to China and the West! We have all these Industrial manufacturing hub developments and for sure no one is planning the goods will be transported via Airplane right? Just one more reason besides the historical reason people argue to own a sea port!]
TPLF will have a new Chairman/woman!
TPLF will have a new Chairman/woman! TPLF top leadership is expected to announce any time now that President Abay Weldu will not continue as TPLF Chairman. The leadership has also agreed yesterday that the top leadership circle will have few more new members. Stay tune for official announcement from the organization. The conference is still on going within the wider Central Committee body, expected to wrap up within days! Aigaforum Nov 27, 2017.

FYI:TPLF Politics and Email Hacking!
TPLF has resumed its conference.The conference will last few more days! The much talked and speculated walkout of Azeb Mesfin is no more news. Azeb is back and is participating in the meeting. This would have been enough to give pain to the extremists to our delight but not to be outsmarted the extremists have found ways to extend their euphoria!
Apparently some emails were hacked and the extremists are selling some of the emails they got from the hack -like agenda memo, as "top secret" material. Little did they know agenda item memo is public as day light is for all to see. Besides if the extremists care that much, the social media has much better materials than what they are hyping! Regardless, the EPRDF government is not known to do its business through emails thus no amount of hacking will generate valuable information!
Nevertheless, it is good such thing happen now when email use is at its early stage in government circle in Ethiopia! Lesson will be learned we hope! [Aigaforum Nov 24, 2017]
