EPRDF 11th Hour!- Update--
As expected EPRDF Executive is set to meet tomorrow(9-8-18). During their last meeting a few weeks ago they were not able to iron out many of the differences, especially differences between member parties! Unless EPRDF ceases to exist, its internal bylaw precludes it to extend its congress which is held every two years, not by more than 6 months! The current Congress is already delayed! Usually, member parties finish their individual congress prior to EPRDF Congress which happens in early September. Hoping for the best outcome, OPDO has set its Congress date and if all goes right after the EPRDF Executive meeting the remaining member parties will announce their own congress date within few days!
EPRDF is at its 11th hour and all indications are the wise men left at the top of the organization have realized without a cohesive EPRDF, the future for Ethiopia is bleak and all the emperors at the top will be naked so to speak! Aigaforum Sep 8, 2018

What is wrong with Wedi Afom? He wants Ethiopia's Airline and Ship Vessels to fly in and dock but does not want people to people relationship develop? Why is he denying his own people living in the border area to be free? If the current relationship is still based on an exploitation scheme it is not going to last! መቐለ ብድሃን ተመለሲ!(smile, but why Meqelle of all the Ships?)

In Defense of Dr. Abiy (Part-3) Samuel Estefanous 4 September 2018 - Let us make no mistake-this is an existential question. Are we going to help this Country float or are we going to let it capsize? A couple of weeks before Ato Hailemariam tendered his resignation, the utter sense of despondency was such that, we all were on tenterhooks so to speak.
Ethiopia announces four more industrial parks as debt fears grow Belachew Mekuria, the commissioner of the Ethiopia Investment Commission, said the government expected to give the go-ahead to parks at Jimma, Adama, Arerti, and Dire Dawa, reports Xinhua, China’s state news agency.Jimma and Arerti Industrial Parks are expected to be built by China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) and Dire Dawa and Adama Industrial Parks are being constructed by China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC).
If the latest news about development projects is true, there is hope Ethiopia is still on the right track. Jawar and Tamagn may be the victims of "ደሮ ሲያታልሉዋት በ መጫኛ ጣሉዋት" Meaning the change that Jawar and Tamagn company are bracing is simply a developmental state trying to accommodate fringe elements of society! The large reception crowd may be the መጫኛ!!

Hyperinflation Consider yourself fortunate if you’ve never lived with the fear that prices of basic goods and services could rise uncontrollably. In the US and Western Europe, inflation rates have been so low for so long that the double-digit increases of the 1970s are a distant memory, or just a history lesson.
