This article goes against a longstanding Ethiopian religious teaching: don’t utter anything bad about the dead.

Probably it is a good thing, something that has shaped our citizens into the decent people they are, though have been unlucky with national leaders. I must, therefore, add that teaching has certainly not been enough to help us enjoy meaningful earthy life nor, as a people, has it so far assured us of our heavenly place.

To come to the point, the cruel rape by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) of our country on my mind, I have chosen to happily accept consequences of going against that Ethiopian standard of behaviour, instead of continuing to witness the endless abuses and exploitation by and servitude of our people to the ethnic mafiosi in power for a quarter century now!

Surprise! Surprise! Saturday is fifth anniversary of Meles Zenawi’s expiration. He was the cruelest of dictators, who has badly poisoned our country’s future and ruined its prospects to become a break out nation.

“The unrest has triggered a collapse in tourism, even though Ethiopia was voted the world’s best tourism destination in 2015. Analysts say investors will also need to see indications of long-lasting reforms before they commit to new ventures. The unrest is also dividing the country with Tigrayans being held collectively responsible for the ubiquity of TPLF dominance.”

When anti-government protests rocked Gondar city in northern Ethiopia in July, ethnic Tigrayans living in the Amhara region started fleeing. For a quarter of a century, the Tigrayans, who make up only 6% of the country’s over 100 million population, have enjoyed disproportionate influence and representation in government.

But as the latest wave of protests intensified, ordinary Tigrayans in the Amhara region were now reportedly saying that their homes and businesses were being attacked because of their perceived affiliation with the government. The protests, which started in Nov. 2015, were largely fronted by the Oromo and Amhara communities, and the ruling party was yet to budge on both communities’ demands for expanded political, economic and human rights.

“The Oromo and Amhara protest movements could change the course of Ethiopia’s future…”

 

Summary

Ethiopia’s government, led by Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, has contended with protests for nearly a year. The government’s efforts to quell the unrest have made headlines and drawn international criticism of late, but its problems go well beyond humanitarian concerns. Since the mid-1970s, Ethiopia underwent several periods of upheaval that changed not just the leaders of the country but also the political system and institutions that govern it. Now, with ethnic discontent reaching a new high and the tendrils of insurgency starting to re-emerge, Desalegn’s administration faces the greatest challenge to its rule yet.

ETHIOPIA: UNWORTHY US ALLY:     TPLF-ruled Ethiopia is considered a rogue nation at home & abroad, cruelly trampling freedoms & human rights of Ethiopian citizens

15 Jul

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) regime is a monster of terrible proportions, protected by powerful foreign governments that pander to it to benefit from its services as their foot soldier in Somalia and else where, and also for the returns on investments their investors make in the country at this difficult time in the global economy.
