9 Jul

By Keffyalew Gebremedhin The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)
Listening to/reading recently retired army chief of staff Lt. Gen. Tsadkan G. Tensae’s interview from late June 2017 — first on Addis Zemen and then with Horn Affairs — I remain one of the many Ethiopian skeptics if indeed it is the Red Sea region bug that has been eating the general, who alleged its consequential danger is hovering over our country.

Drive out of Addis Ababa’s new central business district, with its five-star hotels, banks and gleaming office blocks. Head south, along the traffic-choked avenues lined with new apartment blocks, cafes, cheap hotels and, in the neighbourhood where the European Union has its offices, several excellent restaurants. Go past a vast new church, the cement skeletons of several dozen unfinished housing developments, under a new highway and swing left round the vast construction site from which the new terminal for the Ethiopian capital’s main international airport is rising.

Half-hearted Statement By US National Security Council On the Arrest of Journalists in Ethiopia

31 Dec

Editor’s Note:

    It is long overdue for the United States Administration to pay attention to the hell the lives of Ethiopians have turned into. It is an indiscriminate repression of the citizens of that country the TPLF has been perpetrating. Of late, it has gone from bad to worse.
