2017: Dictators take charge of the UN Human Rights Council, repressive Ethiopia as one of them!

1 Mar

By Keffyalew Gebremedhin The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)
Today, the prevailing wisdom amongst Ethiopians is that Western support is guilty of rendering the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) – Ethiopia’s ruling party – arrogant. It has emboldened it to determinedly pursue its trademark violent anti-democratic and anti-human rights policies, seen during this past quarter century.

As a not thoroughly-vetted carte blanche political gift, it has strongly and harmfully influenced the course of political history in Ethiopia.

Is Ethiopia one undivided nation of equals, or an exclusive TPLF members playfield, its nepotist policies, including its foreign policy, corrupt & inept, violating the rights of citizens? PART II (b)

This article is a follow-up to the July 29, 2016 piece, under same title, Part II (a).

    In every sense, today the feudal Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) for a while now has been nostalgic. It has been searching for inspiration from a distant era with a view to finding solution that could help it sustain its authoritarian rule over Ethiopia. The savior they have chosen for this is Tigray’s Ras Michael Sehul (1691- 1779), the architect of the Zemene Mesafint (the Era of Princes, 1769 – 1855) in Ethiopian history. As usual, the TPLF leaders have blundered making a bad choice as their example, not that they have ever been good students.
