Two of the alleged Ginbot7 plotters reportedly admitted their charges
Aboy Sebhat said the above quote during his last trip to the US in response to a question about political reality in Ethiopia. We think the same is true even in Diaspora. What we have is few angry folks of the extreme types! The recent failure by the extremists to garner any support for their demonstration can only mean even in Diaspora we only have few angry folks!

(MEDREK)Forum set to make transition to a coalition
Forum for Democratic Dialogue in Ethiopia, which was established a year ago by six political parties and two prominent individuals, announced Thursday in a press conference it held that it planned to form a coalition based on the endorsed joint intermediate program and statute. Comment: - Why would Ethiopians who love their country elect a coalition party which has neither a long term agreement to run the country together nor a dominant player among them who can rally the smaller parties around? Let us assume Mederk with its entire alphabet soup organizations wins majority seat in the next election collectively...how would they divide government positions and which policy blue print will be its government policy? In short who will be the nominee for the PM and other positions? We raise this because Kinjit came apart because of such division within. Eng Hailu did not want Berhnau Nega to be mayor while he sat in in Meles led parliament and Ledetu Ayalew could not swallow the idea of a woman, that came from nowhere, to be the second in line, while his his party holds near majority! Ethiopia is too precious to be left at the hand of a coalition that is formed for short term gain based on hate politics.

True, it is a newly configured Ethiopia but, nonetheless, it is an Ethiopia which has restored the sense of pride in one’s ethnic and cultural identities to Ethiopia’s nations, nationalities and peoples...
Progress made More children are reaching their fifth birthday than ever before
(Economist.com):-MORE children are surviving beyond their fifth birthday, according to a new report from the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef). The child mortality rate—the number of under-fives dying per thousand live births—declined from 90 in 1990 to 65 in 2008, a drop of over a quarter. Progress in sub-Saharan Africa, which now accounts for half of all deaths, has been slower, but Niger, Malawi, Mozambique and Ethiopia have seen reductions of more than 100 per 1,000 livebirths since 1990.
