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!

    Is Africa deindustrializing? The Economist praise of Ethiopia’s manufacturing efforts raises eyebrows

    “If the past is any guide to the present and the future, impetuous as the the TPLF regime has been in this quarter century of exercising state powers, it is in no position to translate these neatly laid out plans [Industrial Development Plan] into action, since the rulers themselves are in need of upgrading and undergoing their substantial transformations.”
