Abebe b, it come to this. The Oromo movement seemed to have been described by Jaab Merro, and his handful followers now. This particular movement seemed barricaded — I chose the word purposely — in Western Wellega. The Amharas are not against the “ rebels,” as you keep saying. Ethiopians are. Playin...

Re: Isayas Afewerki of Eritrea in the tier of support to Abiy led Amhara regime: refueling alliance of Tigrawai and Orom

Eden’s sentence got my attention. She wrote OLF the obvious future Ethiopian government. Do not bet on it. Never will that OLF led government become a reality in Ethiopia. Let us say all Oromos vote to OLF — a miracle— and still OLF cannot form a government. Thirty-five percent of the Ethiopian popu...

Re: TPLF and its supporters are confused by the rule of the game

Ethoash, Abiy is very fair to TPLF. They declared war on his administration from the outset. They played every card to sabotage his plan. The Ethiopian Somali president was the first to be used. All of a sudden in every part of the country the identity issue has become the topic of the moment. Your ...

Re: How world leaders viewed Meles, taken from Wikileaks.

All those who spoke about Meles , which I read here, are right in understanding the late prime minister. But the US understanding of him is more to the point. Yes, Meles had been a one dimensional leader who dislikes immensely those who get in his way. Yes, he is attention seeker as the former US am...

Re: MESHREFET REMOVED VICE MAYOR OF ADDIS AND MINISTER OF TRADE ILLEGALLY.

Yes, that is a blanket statement, Selam. But context matters. No, I am not ruling out , or saying non -college graduates do not apply for any higher government position. What I am saying is the Ethiopian government has around twenty ministries. It is not a stretch to expect those twenty positions sh...

Yes, a degree is not a requirement to be the president of USA. But a handful of them , mostly way past, do not have one. But you brought that argument, it seems, to defend Meles’ statement. When Meles said we need only EPDRF members to run everything, he divided Ethiopians in to two: He implied Ethi...

About “ wrongful dismissal” Ethoash, I do not think the lady could go that far. She has no claim. A minister job is not an “ erest,” the Amharic word which describes entitlement. Let us be honest, Ethoash, the lady is not up to the task. As I said before I am not singling her out for incompetence. T...

Re: MESHREFET REMOVED VICE MAYOR OF ADDIS AND MINISTER OF TRADE ILLEGALLY.

Ethoash, the economist, you need, as always, to be taught a little lesson here. Abiy has every right to appoint and fire any minister as he wishes. I assume when the late prime minister was doing what Abiy is doing now not a single TPLF politician or cadre questioned the legality of his doing. But t...

Halafi, leave Debretsion alone. He has less political means to rally Tigreans against the Abiy government now. Two years ago the TPLF politicians twisted every of Abiy’s statement so that he should be perceived anti-Tigreans. Yes , that probably produced a big demonstration in Mekele around two year...

Every minister who is appointed should have the professional qualification. It is not a cadre job. She should not have been a minister to begin with. If the government believes she must be rewarded one way or another because she had been a fighter, there should be an appropriate job to her that matc...

I have an issue of characterizing ethnic politics in Ethiopia as a “ crowd” politics. In numerical value it is way far less than that. It has been a politics of a handful of college dropouts. Even after thirty years, Ethiopians of any ethnic group has not embraced it. It is a misguided belief to ass...

Halafi, what happened to you? What Ethiopian empire you are talking about? Have you not heard Sebhat and company wiped out “Amharanism” and the Orthodox Church domination? Without those two, as your uncles used to say, there is no an Ethiopian empire. It Is strange you have not gotten the memo yet.

Revelations, today you posted something interesting. I have not had a clue before now about the Tigray demographic I just read. This beg the question why do the TPLF political elites have spent the last two years inventing ethnic issue in Amhara region, such as of a “Kemant” or in the south while th...

I agree, tarik, Revelations would not be as bad as Jawar, even close. Revelations if he does not like a person, he does not like his politics.

What happened to you tarik? Revelations should not even be an “ Eder” leader. Had he been one, and I had been unlucky enough to live out in the Kebele who elected him to lead the Eder, I would not have spent a night in that Kebele. I just collect my family and belongings and run out of there.
