Re: Mekelle city residents are part of Derg revival we see today and no right to voice for the fate of future Tigray

Halafi, finally you have found renegades in Tigray nation. They turned out to be the Mekele residents. Well, the old guards , I think, do not like yours truth telling. Yes, the people of Tigray and TPLF are not one and the same as you implied . To the majority of Tigreans ethnic politics were impose...

Re: Chutzpah - Seyoum Mesfin demanding accountability from Abiy for winning the Nobel Prize

It is interesting. Seyoum seemed to have believed his assumptions are tantamount to facts. No, they are not. He implied after the prime minister visited Cairo for the first time, he seemed to have abandoned Ethiopian’s interest to that of Egypt. What prove Seyoum does have to substantiate his claim ...

Re: To Jawar Mohammed and Bekele Gerba aka Oromia nation today or never forever???

Halafi, you got it wrong about Jawar. His prime time had been in the past. As a politician he is as ineffective as you could get now. While living in USA, he read the Ethiopian politics totally wrong. He , like you, assumed Ethiopians are merely a collection of tribes. They are way more than that. H...

Re: Egyptian media “Ethiopians in the US support Egypt’s water rights”

It is not the US which seemed to be backing up the Egyptian demand, instead it is the Trump administration. American governments come and go, but Ethiopia always will be there to use what is hers.

The cadres were not doing anything useful, but agitated people against people, and they were paid pretty good for it. Ethnic politicians conside...

Abeb b, I did not find the demonstration funny, and more importantly, enlightening. You can not compare religion with ethnicity. Comparing Amhara with Moslem religion is ridiculous to say the least. In fact, it is important there are Moslem Amharas, and they have not chosen to be Amhara or Moslem. T...

Re: Nebiyu Sihul Mikael of Enderta - Joined Prosperity Party

He is right of him saying that the TPLF ideology is “ outdated.” Identity politics has run its course for nearly three decades. The majority of Ethiopians has said enough is enough. Tigreans will not be an exception. The grip TPLF has had over them seem to loosen up. Do you remember the demonstratio...

In fact, Abiy should not appoint any TPLF politician who considers his government illegitmate. There are former TPLF politicians, like Arkebe, who emraced the political change from the outset. They are afew in number, but true Ethiopians who stood by Abiy despite their being hated by the Adwa gangs ...

I mean above an Ethiopian prime minister, not minister. Yes, a regional politician could become a minister if a prime minister appointed him and parliament approved his nomination.

The TPLF politicians in particular, but also the OLF ones love to tell us Ethiopia will disintegrate like Yugoslavia if they do not dictate their wish upon us. But the comparison is laughable.

Maybe I am biased. But I do believe generally women in position of power are more trustful than men are. They work hard. They try hard to prove that they are as comptent as men are. They are more honest, and less prone to corruption. If educational background and experience are equal between a male ...

I do not think any leader should mix politics with religion. If the alleged statement that Abiy had said was true, he was wrong for saying it. But on the theoretical question whether a Protestant religion is more in tune with capitalism than any other religion, a healthy debate could be made. As a p...
