Unlike the early days of the online media, we have all learned not to be easily shocked, surprised, or overly excited by what we read online. Mostly, we try to verify the reliability and reputation of the source. Sometimes, we try to analyze the characters or personalities affiliated in an outrageous story or analysis and we raise questions like….did he/she really say that? …Really? Would he/she say that? What would be his/her motive to be so wrong? and so on.
When we read Ana Gomez’s interview with a journalist from a local private media, we didn’t even doubt the authenticity of this story knowing it is the angry Hana Gobeze spewing her venom again. By the way, she likes her nick name and she is flattered to be named as Hana Gobeze. May be we are wrong referring to the interviewer as a journalist… sounds more of an opposition spokesperson according to his line of questioning and his opinion of her being respected by ‘a lot of Ethiopians’. That’s beside the point….You will judge for yourself.
At first, we wanted to sit down and write to respond to what she said line by line, but decided not to, because she is overwhelmingly wrong, biased, angry, arrogant, and filled with vengeance.
After reading this transcript and trying to make sense of her anger and the personal hate she harbors against the great leader, the late PM Meles Zenawi, one can easily conclude that she must have been really hit hard where it hurts the most the way PM Meles cut her to size last time!
While failing miserably on her analysis and wrong on all points, we have to admit that she is right about one thing she said….” She doesn’t pretend to know Ethiopia well enough”. You are darn right ! You, including your confidants, don’t know Ethiopia and it will stay a mystery to you forever.
She even dares to tell us that poor countries like Ethiopia don’t have the right to protect their people against terrorism and she says that’s reserved for the rich, developed, and powerful countries.
This angry woman says a lot more. Read on(here) and Have Your Say below…!
