It was an amazing seen to see that many people at the border when it was first opened but to see such traffic before the two countries have a well-planned custom regulation is really amazing-- Our political leaders have erred big time over the years to have divided the people.

ONN Reportage on Qimant People Persecution - Amhara Region
Thank you ONN for being the voice for the voiceless - with the Qimant issue at least! Ethiopia must protect indigenous people to the fullest and those who committed or enabled the mayhem should be held accountable. Dr. Abiy and HRW Qimants are people too!

Ethiopia attack: Five charged for trying to kill PM Abiy Ahmed(BBC)

Ethiopia heading to 'SHITHOLCOUNTRY'
Kebour Ghenna September 27, 2018 - We woke up this morning and checked the news...What we came across were some trendy Oromo politicians from the Diaspora, berating why their party is ready to govern Oromia WTH Ethiopia... or something like that. We haven't heard anything like this! These Oromo leaders don't stop reminding us of their ideology, which I call Oromo Exceptionalism, a sort of xenophobic ethnic nationalism...
When we advocated for constitutional order and respect of rule of law we were trying to create awareness of what justice by the mob will do to a country like ours! For the sake of Ethiopia, the current administration must succeed but it must succeed while respecting the rule of law and the constitution. If the current administration fails most if not all of the Oromo people will be disheartened and lose hope. It is too late to create an image of this government as anything but an Oromo government. Thus why it must succeed to govern with proper Ethiopia. The task now is how to manage the Abiy government grow to become a progressive and pragmatic government where rule of law, not foreign advisors are guiding the day to day governance.

Tigray Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness (TiSC) as a Catalyst for University, Industry and Government Triangular Relationships
M Gettaw, Sept 28, 2018 - As I was watching the inauguration ceremony of the 13th Congress of the TPLF, I really felt very emotional. The songs and drama that the very capable "Bahli Tigray" and modern "Tigrigna" singers presented were splendid and state-of-the-art (Congratulations to all!). I really appreciated the lyrics as well as the melody of the songs and their message to celebrate the sacrifices made by the senior fighters and leaders of the TPLF..

My two cents say on Jawar Mohammed Visiting Tigray.
Reqiq 9/27/18 - I am reading diverse opinions on Social Media regarding a rumor on the coming visit of Jawar to Tigray which is very good, on the diverse opinions because for a healthy community, it is natural to have diversified opinions. To mention the diverse opinions....Some say he shouldn't welcome; some he should, and the third opinion is that he has the right as a citizen but not as a hero welcome to Tigray.

The Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation announced on Wednesday that the meeting of the tripartite committee on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, which was held between ministers of water resources and irrigation in Sudan, Ethiopia and Egypt, did not reach an agreement on the difficult points.



On Protocol - Is President Mulatu somehow incapable addressing the nation during holidays? Why is PM Abiy always taking the airtime during such events? Isn't the constitution clear on this and what is the reason to bypass the normal protocol now? I believe President Dr. Mulatu is more than capable to address the nation during such events. Zeru Hagos Sep 26, 2018

The country’s minimum legal age of marriage for girls is 15, but some brides are as young as nine..

Cracking Open Ethiopia's Political Can of Worms
Professor Desta, Asayehgn 09-24-18 - In order to halt a late 2015 wave of anti-government protest and eventually stimulate political and socio-economic reforms, Ethiopians elected Dr. Abiy(hereafter referred as Abiy) Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia on April 2, 2018. After six months in power, instead of facilitating a peaceful and democratic pathway, Abiy appears more focused on self-aggrandizing and enhancing his popularity.



The sense of entitlement in TPLF has to be tackled first and foremost.
Haile Tessema, Sept. 24, 2018 - The good book says, "The love of money is the root of all evil" (1 Timothy 6:10). But - while the Apostle Paul was obviously addressing mammon when he wrote that in his letter to Timothy - money evidently is not the only culprit.Rather, power and prestige - be it political, economic or social - are part and parcel of that. So, it'd be fair to deduce that the sense of entitlement money, power and prestige give to someone or a group is at the root of all evil.



Ethiopia's Struggle Against Climate Change Gets a Boost from Green Climate Fund
ADDIS ABABA, Sep 24 2018 (IPS) - Faced with worsening droughts due to climate change, Ethiopia is joining an international initiative seeking to build global resilience against the problems caused by it, and enable developing countries to become part of a united solution to the ongoing problem.
One of the many PM Meles's legacies was his involvement on the world stage on behalf of Africans and Ethiopians! His leading role as an advocate of the poor who are the first victims of climate change brought by western pollution will not be forgotten. How things have changed since he left us! Ethiopia today is talking about Burayu killings, not about climate change and its effect on our people!

Arab Gulf states in the Horn of Africa: What role do they play?
The Red Sea, which separates Africa from the Arabian Peninsula, is just 355 kilometers (220 miles) wide at its broadest point. The major shipping route could be an economic treasure trove for any regional power. Yet for the last ten years, the water route spanning the Gulf of Aden in the south to the Suez Canal in the north has been a difficult one to navigate. Somali pirates, border disputes between Eritrea and Djibouti, landlocked Ethiopia's attempt to gain Red Sea access,...

The future is in Africa, China already knows it
During the past decade, China has been investing a lot of money in sub-Saharan Africa: Some Western observers worry that this represents a new form of colonialism. Given the continent’s history with European conquerors and rich countries trying to cheaply exploit its natural resources, that suspicion is understandable. But although China can sometimes be predatory...

An economic revival in Ethiopia, the inevitable decline of the nuclear power industry
