Addis Abeba, November 21/2017 – On October 26/2017 at least ten people were killed and 20 more were wounded by security forces during a fresh round of protest that started two days earlier in Ambo city, 125 km west of Addis Abeba, and one of the epicenters of the 2014-2016 Oromo protests.

As the confusions on what caused this latest protest in the city began to clear up, news came out that it began two days earlier when a group of young men from the city surrounded and blocked three trucks allegedly loaded with sugar and were passing by the city.

Who: said bromance was dead?

Last week social media went up a storm, when Mugabe was appointed a goodwill ambassador. I am sure we have all heard of these shortest celebrity marriages done on a whim. This new bromance between Mugabe and Dr Tedros takes the biscuit. After 37 hours they had already called it quits.

The DG is having a headache (Reuters/Denis Balibouse)

The whole situation reeks to high heaven. I think there is more to this than meets the eye. Dr Tedros needs to put in his resignation and step down from that high chair of his.

It is known that Mugabe goes to Singapore for his treatments even for something small, such a disgrace. Maybe he should be appointed WHO Ambassador to Asia for promoting healthcare and medical tourism to that region.

Somalia will not be able to assert itself and prosper until Ethiopia stops meddling in its affairs. Western nations also need to reevaluate their support of the Ethiopian regime if they ever want to see peace in the Horn of Africa.

Ethiopia has long been a thorn in the side of Somalia, a troublesome neighbour, and an obstacle to regional peace.
