ኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ በሥልጣን ላይ የተቆናጠጠው ቡድን ግለስቦችን በዜግነታቸው ሣይሆን፡ በዘራቸው እየለካና እየመደበ ማን አንደኛ ደረጃ ተጠቃሚ እንደሚሆን የራሱን የደምና አጥንት መለኪያ መሥርቶ፡ ሃገራችንን ከፋፍሎ በተለይም ለመሬት ዘረፋ ካጋለጣት ሰንብቷል! ግንባር ቀደም ተበዳይና ብዙ ደም የፈሰሰባት ጋምቤላ በዚህ ማዕበል ምክንያት ብዙ ዜጎችን አጥታለች፤ ብዙ ዜጎችም ተሰደዋል።

    In rural areas [of Ethiopia], all measures of inequality suggest there has been little change in inequality over time although inequality fell marginally from 1996 to 2005 and increased from 2005 to 2011. Nationally, urban and rural trends offset each other and many measures suggest inequality has stayed quite stable from 2005 to 2011. However, measures of inequality that give more weight to poorer households show that national inequality has steadily increased from 2000 until 2011…This progress is not without its challenges, poverty remains widespread and the very poorest have not seen improvements — to the contrary, even a worsening — of consumption since 2005, which poses a challenge to achieving shared prosperity in Ethiopia.”
     

    “The most pronounced change in the relative income differences is for the relative income of the top 10 percent in comparison to the bottom 10 percent [in Ethiopia], which increased to above 360 percent given the contraction in consumption in the bottom decile.”
