Former Sec of State Rex Tillerson presser in Addis Abeba:

“Ethiopia’s influence in supporting the security of Somalia and Djibouti are particularly important at this time to keep global commerce routes open. These routes through the Red Sea affect billions of people around the world in terms of their economic stability. And we discussed the United States is eager to help Ethiopia liberalize its economy. We think it’s going to bring great opportunity and attract many business interests as they continue the process of reform and liberalization, strengthen its judicial and commercial institutions, and assist in humanitarian emergencies here and throughout the region, including the almost one million refugees that currently reside in Ethiopia. And we need to reside – recognize Ethiopia’s generosity in hosting those refugees.”

The project is estimated to cost 1.5 billion dollars. The Ethiopian government had reviewed and accepted the proposal in principle.

Ethiopia on the brink. Everyone has failed Somalia— its politicos, Horn nations, AU, UN, the West bear huge responsibilities, TPLF most of all! PART I (1)

    The following introductory paragraphs are intended to serve as a curtain raiser for the articles that would follow it in the weeks to come.

    The main conclusion is its open and honest claim that Somalia could have been up and running long ago, if the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and the forces it commands within Somalia — including all sorts of shady Somalia militias — have not been allowed to become authors and contributors of Somalia’s continuing tragedy.

    In that, the individual articles provide tissues forming the conclusion’s muscle.

    While engaging Al-Shabaab as everyone’s enemy, probably as a convenient cover for the top military leadership’s goal(s), these bad apples within the TPLF and their allies’ preoccupation has been their own superior position inside Somalia and Ethiopia. This perception assumes TPLF’s continuity in power in Ethiopia, which takes among others pacifying Somalia and keeping it weaker.

“Wako” fled Ethiopia for Kenya in 2012, after his release from prison. He had been locked up for two years after campaigning for the Oromo People’s Congress, an opposition party that has often been targeted by the government.

In Kenya, he hoped to be safe. But six months later Ethiopian officials kidnapped him in Nairobi and brought him to Ethiopia’s notorious Ziway prison, where he was mistreated and tortured, before being released. He fled to Kenya a second time.

እነማን ይሆኑ? ማን ይሆን? የሃገር ደህንነት ሳይሆኑ፥ የሕወሃት ሰላዮች ላይ እያነጣጠረ ላለፉት አራት ወራት ሲለቅማቸው የከረመው/ሙት? እኛም ለጥይቄው መልሱን አናውቅም። ምን ውጤት እንደሚያስከትል አናውቅም – ለውጥ መምጣቱን ባንጠራጠርም!

አንድ አበክረን የምናውቀው ሃቅ ግን፥ በሕወሃት አስተዳደር ኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ በዜጎች እኩልነት ላይ ያልተመሠረተ አመራር ባለበት ሁኔታ፡ ሃገሪቷ ልማቷም አርኪ ሰላምና ደህንነቷ የተረጋገጠ ይሆናል ብሎ ማሰብ ቀድሞውንም ተላላነት ነው። የኢትዮጵያ ሕዝብ ለማን ደህንነት ነው ይህቺን የጋራ ሃገራችንን መንከባከብ የሚገባው? ለዘረኛው ሕወሃትና አቃጣሪዎቹ?

ከታሪክ እንደምናስታውስው፥ ባሪያ ለፈንጋዩ የራሱን ደህነንትና ነጻነት ወደጎን ገፍቶ፡ ቀንና ሌሊት ለፈንጋዩ ምቾትና ደህነንት ብቻ ሲኳትን ዘላለም ይኖራል ብሎ እንደማሰብ የሚቆጠር ነው! አይታሰብም!

Keeping Ethiopians in darkness, TPLF 2015 electricity export earn it $123 million

15 Apr

Editor’s Note:

    Electricity coverage in Ethiopia is 24 percent, as we write this now. Of this, 85 percent is in urban areas and 10 percent rural, according to a 2015 data by the International Energy Agency (IEA)

    The irony is that the urban-rural divide travesty the TPLF has been condemning past regimes have now become its own crimes. In Ethiopia, today there is some electricity, i.e., 24 percent coverage rate – which works if and only when it works!

Silly for Djibouti to stop a sheikh using 100 square metres of tree shade, then allow Americans a base of 360,000 square metres a stone’s throw away

Tens of thousands of East African refugees and asylum-seekers are at risk of being left behind in Yemen’s roiling violence, deprived not only of safe options for evacuation but also of a home country that might take them in, activists and U.N. officials said this week.
