ይህንን አሳዛኝ የወቅቱን የሕወሃትን ራስ-ጠቀም የፖለቲክ ዳኝነት የያዘውን አቋምና ዜና ስሰማ (video)፣ ትዝ ያለኝ በኢያዩ ፈንገሥ መድረክ አጃቢነት የሚዘፈነው “ማያዬ” የተሰኝው ዘፈን ወብ ግጥም ውስጥ ስንኘ ነው፦

African governments that shut down the internet could face strict measures if a new proposal to the regional internet registry is adopted.

The policy suggestion states that after the end of any shutdown, governments and any of their related bodies should not be allocated an IP address for one year.

The ban would also affect any transfer of addresses to government-owned entities in those 12 months. And if an African government performs three or more shutdowns in a period of 10 years, the proposition mandates that all services provided to them revoked, with no allocations offered for a period of five years.

Ethiopia under the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) is quietly experimenting its mini-nationalization of investor properties and enterprises.

Addis Abeba, Washington’s yet unsorted ally, its move would be seen as one of the most bizarre anomaly of our time. Given that the United States now is under the most hawkish business tycoon, in his own right the first United States billionaire President Donald Trump, members of his cabinet of similar wealths, the Ethiopian regime’s move is likely to smack the new US Administration on the face.

Such nationalization, anathema to the United States, the Trump Administration experiences in less than two months since assuming power could irk many, coming as it does as the most despicable political eccentricity under their early watch.

The Ethiopian government declared a state of emergency on 9 October 2016. Protests in Oromia, which later spread to Amhara and other regions, had been ongoing since November 2015.

The protests in the Oromia Region in November 2015 were initially against the government’s Addis Ababa ‘Master Plan’, which would have extended the capital, Addis Ababa, into Oromia Regional State. Protesters were concerned that the Master Plan would lead to evictions of Oromo farmers living in the outskirts of the capital.
