IR’s rejected insight becomes the truth, with TPLF focusing on power exports as Ethiopia gropes in darkness

18 Sep

By Keffyalew Gebremedhin – The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)

When certain claim or argument is rejected as baseless, but in time turns out to become fact and actuality, doubters and rejectors of its underlying truths find themselves on the wrong side of reality.
