VOA discussion On Democracy and Development
It is not an exaggeration if we tell you that some of VOA Amharic presenters were deeply in love with Kinjit that was! Unlike today “Ye zaren ayadregewna” some of these people were trying to promote Kinjit as much as the law of the United States allowed them to do without causing any diplomatic problems. Today their darling Kinjit is no more! And it shows! Tizita Belachew has a new program called Democracy! She invited Ato Mekonne Kassa and “ye kedemo kinjit afe qelate” (ex speaker for Kinjit North America) Gezachew Legesse to discuss economic development and democracy in Ethiopia.
  Part I
Tizita next time do your job as a radio host and you do the asking. Let the guests answer your questions! Don't surrender your radio host role to one that has a temper tantrum.Next time play a neutral role as a radio host.

Election Boycott by Angry Old Men

Ben D Oct 12, 2009:- The idea that extremism takes hold in groups that feel their "status" is threatened by new groups on the rise in society is nothing new. The coalition of birthers and haters in America disparage Mr. Obama and decry we can’t be lead by him, they claim he is a Kenyan,..even go as far as re-editing the King James version of the bible, to reflect dooms day for America. Similarly, the old guard in the Ethiopian opposition is calming final destruction of Ethiopia if they cannot get to power. We can only suggest that the victims of such status anguish should be doing a better job accepting their new situations.


Ethiopian Opposition Says It May Boycott Elections
Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- An alliance of Ethiopian opposition parties may boycott elections scheduled for May 2010 unless the government releases imprisoned opposition leader Birtukan Mideksa and others they say are political prisoners...
Comment:  After HIBRET gradually subsided as an opposition coalition, Dr Merara has transitioned to become the chair of yet another opposition coalition.This new coalition by the name of Medrek is calling for foreign interference in Ethiopia’s internal affairs. Mederk has darted out on the wrong foot by putting a precondition to join the May 2010 election. The coalition has all the right to abstain from voting or run for an election but to smear the governing party and pressure it to compromise on the constitution is an outright offence. EPRDF is well advised not to babysit Medrek and inform Westerners not to interfere in internal matters. The discussion between opposition parties and EPRDF must go on with or without MEDREK but foreigners must be told to stay away.If Mederk can breathe on its own and join the discussion it must be welcome but not at the expense of the constitution.Our Ethiopian constitution was birthed after our people paid dearly!
