የሕወሃት ጠቅላይ ዓቃቤ ሕግ በፖሊስ ረዳት ኮሚሽነር ሐጎስ መራ ትኩዕ ላይ የመሠረተውን ክስ ለምን አነሳ?

    ግልጽ ለመሆን፡ ከላይ በአርዕስቱ ለተነሳው ጥያቄ በመረጃ ተደግፎ ያገኘነው መልስ የለም። ነገር ግን ላለመሆን የሚችልበትን ምክንያትም ማየት አልቻልንም!

    እስከዛሬ በሃገራችን ውስጥ ሕወሃት ሲያደረግ ያየነው በዘርና በዘወግ የራሱን ሰዎች ደግፎ የመጠቃቀሙን አስጸያፊ የፖለቲካና የኤኮኖሚ አሠራር ባህሉ ስላደረገው፡ ኮምሽነር ሃጎሥ ከተመሠረተባቸው ክስ — ለብሄረሰባቸው ኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ ሕወሃት ‘በደነገገለት’ የበላይነት ምክንያት — ክሱ ቢነሳላቸው — መደረግ የሌለበት ቢሆንም — አዲስና ሕወሃት የማያደርገው ነገር መሆኑን የሜጠቁም ነገርም አልታየንም!

    ትምህርት ኖራቸው አልኖራቸው፣ ከማዘዝ ውጭ (ለዚያውም ማዘዝ የሚያውቁ ሆነው) ሌሎች ሠራተኞችን የማስተባበርና የመምራት ችሎታ አላቸው ሳይባል አይደል እንዴ ላይ እስካሉት ጭምር፡ ሃገሪቱን እንዲመሩ፡ሕወሃቶች ለእያንዳንዱ የመንግሥት መ/ቤት ከላይ እስከታች ኃላፊዎች ሊሆኑ የበቁት?

The news late this Saturday afternoon from the TPLF side, according to HornAffairs, is:

There is nothing in the official news in Ethiopia or in the social media. However, this does not mean I am dismissing what the TPLF source such as the above is reporting.

Ethiopia’s Comical ‘Anti-Corruption’ Crackdowns

27 Jul

Posted by The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)
by Muktar Omar
 

“A government that is not politically responsible cannot be fiscally accountable. There can be no effective specialized anti-corruption institutions without free media, vibrant civil society, independent justice system and competitive political space. Democracy is not a solution for corruption as the experiences of many African democracies indicate. But it is a sin qua non for overcoming this longstanding governance problem. There is no technical fix to this malady.”

There is something truly hilarious about Ethiopian government’s occasional ‘anti-corruption’ crackdowns. Corruption is endemic in Africa and anti-corruption strategies are politicized and have largely failed across the continent. Ethiopia is not an exception. Where Ethiopia brings a new expertise is in the art of covering up corruption by public officials.

የሕወሃት አስተዳደርን የሕዝቡ ቁጣ በአነስተኛ ንግድ ላይ የተጫነውን አዲስ ግብር እንዲሠርዝ በማስገደድ ነጋዴዎች ራሳቸው ያመኑበትን እንዲከፍሉ ተወሰነ!

የአዘጋጁ አስተያየት:

    ይህ ለጊዜው ሕወሃት የንጹሃንን ደም እንዳያፈስ ስላደረገው መልካም እርምጃ ነው!

    ለወደፊቱ ግን በገንዘብ ስግግብግብነቱ የሚታወቀው ሕወሃት ከሕዝብ ጋር ምክክር ማለት የፕሮፓጋንዳ ፍጆታ ወይንም የማሸነፍ ፉክክር ሳይሆን፡ እንደምክክር መውሰድን መጀመሪያ መማር ይኖርበታል — ለወደፊቱ የሚባል ነገር ካለ!

    ከበደ ጫኔ ስለዜግነት ግዴታና ኃላፊነት በሕወሃት ስም መናገሩ አሳፋሪ ነው! ነፍሰ ገዳዩ ሕወሃት ነው የዜግነት ግዴታን ለሕዛብችን የሚያስተምረው? እባካችሁ! የምትወረውሯቸውን ተሳዳቢ፡ ተመጻዳቂና ጸያፍ ቃላት ሕዝባችን ላይ ከመወርወራችሁ በፊት እራሳችሁን እወቁ!

    አሁን በደረሰበት ደረጃ፣ ለሕወሃት ዘራፊና ዘረኛ አስተዳደር ት ዕግሥቱ ተሟጧል!

TPLF vainly copies China’s ways — Censorship & planting pseudonymous articles in social media —hoping to trump an Ethiopia ‘agenda’ to save its increasingly slipping power (Part I)

22 Jul

By Keffyalew Gebremedhin The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)
 
Of late, constantly on my mind has been the 31-year old Yonatan Tesfaye. He was once the spokesperson for the opposition Blue Party. Before his imprisonment, I had felt him coming across in his media appearances — as did many I have spoken to — as a promising young man, with future prospects written all over him.

Korea dismisses diplomat in Ethiopia suspected of raping female worker

22 Jul

Editor’s Note:

    TPLF take a lesson! Korea’s image is not damaged by this because this hubris by its diplomats has become public. Do you also see how a free press serves the nation well informing citizens, when such shame befalls government, by high officials or any of its employees at any level?

    On the contrary, this revelation has made Korea’s democracy stronger, with transparency as the weapon against corruption and misdemeanour. It also improves the equality of its citizens.
