Historian Haile Larebo’s remarks on Ethiopian Government’s so-called New History Module

11 Jan

by Haile M. Larebo, BD, STL, Phd

A secret memo written to the Prime Minister Abiy by his top legal advisor, encapsulates the new perspective. This is what the advisor states about Ethiopian history.

“What we refer to, and used as, Ethiopian history to-date, is nothing but [an epic] that commemorates the hagiography of some nations. It is an isolationist history, which does not even mention the history of most Ethiopian nationalities, but particularly the history of the Oromo. (Highlight is mine).

Of this advice to the prime minister, the Historian Haile M. Larebo, scoffs: “The advisor has definitely no understanding of the evolution of historical writing in the world, in general, and Ethiopia, in particular.”

“From an honest historian’s perspective, the Module is nothing, but the regime’s hidden propaganda parading as an academic history course.”

Double Standards:             Ethiopia Must Solve its Internal Displacement Crisis

10 Jan

by Nikita Taniparti*, The Globe Post

The world has been loud in its laudation of Ethiopia’s commitment. However, Ethiopia’s success with refugees is in stark contrast with its underperformance with internally displaced persons. Comparing the two types of displaced groups is unfair, but that doesn’t mean the country cannot catch up with itself.

June 2019. The spacious lobby of the Hilton in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa was unusually brimming with confused and harried-looking visitors. Preempting my curiosity, a colleague grimly explained that the new arrivals were a result of the latest in several evacuation announcements issued in South Sudan.

“Every time there is such conflict, Addis is the top-choice destination in the region,” he said. “These people are only the wealthy ones. This means that the rest of Ethiopia will get a new wave of refugees again. But we already have millions of our own displaced.”

He is right. Ethiopia hosts almost 750,000 refugees from all over the region and is set to host more as conflicts worsen. Displaced persons within its own borders, though, far outnumber the refugees. Estimates place the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) at over 3 million.

Ethiopia’s Refugee Policies

Ethiopia last year adopted a refugee law that, among other things, allows refugees to get work permits, access primary education, and obtain drivers’ licenses. The U.N. refugee agency called the law one of the “most progressive refugee policies in Africa.”

UN Special Rapporteur David Kaye on the right to freedom of opinion & expression: End of Ethiopia mission statement



መንግሥት: የምንዛሬ ተመን በገበያ እንዲወሰን ማድረጉ ከኢኮኖሚ ማሻሻያው ጋር የሚተገበር እንጂ በፍጥነት የሚገባበት አይደለም!

ሚኒስትር ዲኤታው ዶክተር እዮብ በዚህ መንገድም የሃገር በቀል የኢኮኖሚ ማሻሻያው በሚተገበርባቸው ሶስት አመታት ውስጥ ኢትዮጵያ በገበያ የሚመራ የውጭ ምንዛሬ ተመን ይኖራታል ብለዋል።

ቅድሚያ ግን አቅርቦትና ፍላጎትን በማቀራረብ የሚኬድበት እንጂ እንደ ከዚህ በፊቱ ብርን በአንዴ በማዳከም አይደለም ሲሉ ገልጸዋል።

ወደ ውጭ የሚላክ በቂ ምርትና ተወዳዳሪ ጥራት በሌለበት የተተገበሩ የተመን ለውጦች በመሆናቸው በሁለቱም ጊዜያት ገቢ ዕቃዎችን በእጅጉ በማስወደድ የዋጋ ንረትን ከመፍጠር የተሻለ ነገር ማስመዝገብ አልተቻለም።

እንደውም በ2010 ዓ.ም. የተደረገው የምንዛሬ ተመን ከዋጋ ግሽበት ባለፈ በባንኮችና በጥቁር ገበያው መካከል ያለውን የዋጋ ልዩነት ጭራሽ ባልተለመደ ሁኔታ አስፍቶታል።

የኢንቨስትመንት አማካሪው አቶ ያሬድ ደግሞ በቂ የሚላክ ምርት በሌለበት ሁኔታ የኢትዮጵያን ብር ጠነከረ አልጠነከረ ብሎ እርምጃ መውሰድ ተገቢነቱ ሊጤን ይገባል ብለዋል።
