Great suggestion!Ethoash wrote: ↑25 Nov 2019, 16:13Alibaba job is more then enough for Ermiyas Amelga and Dr. ABiy had Dr. Abiy smart he would have appointed Ermiyas Amelga to the job and still getting the full credit ... Ermiyas Amelga should also be happy Dr. Abiy is interested in his business the only problem with Ethiopia is jealousy when the job is more then two people can handle .. i think the best thing to offer Alibaba is server storage cloud service ... cloud server need electricity and Ethiopia have the cheapest hydro rate .. this alone would have convinced Alibaba to come and invest in Ethiopia .. the only problem is black out..
C'mon! that "አንዳንድ ፍርኖ ዳቦ" if it happened is not to Mamo's Oromo customer; who is feeding who? Never heard that growing up; Oromo was never mentioned in the Ethiopian famine for one. Getting excited of "ፍርኖ"? You must be kidding!Ethoash wrote: ↑25 Nov 2019, 16:13if i was not mistaken i heard this two story about him.. business genius... here are the two story...
one i heard he have public bus service so most of his customer was oromo.. at that time when customer was mistreated and seen as low class ... ማሞ ካቻን treat them with respect and offer them አንዳንድ ፍርኖ ዳቦ for taking his bus.. just imagine how much goodwill he got out of that.
That is old story of what Colonialist did to natives. Remember Ethiopia had Menelik! Gambela being part of Ethiopian nation can't be different! No one can play an Ethiopian the Mirror game!
Having said that, Mamo didn't have shortage of customers to begin with then; not much competition;so he didn't have to use gimmicks! Maybe you're thinking of Selam Bus! :~)ha! ha! ha!
Ethoash - On your following comment:
This is brilliant political story telling of "nationalization" of small holdings; we thought that will make us a Socialist country. It failed us; the same with Stalin's/Wallelegn Marxism and the "National Question of Ethiopia"; it brought us to unspeakable horrors in the country and now we are on the verge of genocide.
Your presentation is marvelous; very appealing & in educational material format for everyone to understand. It can be put in a collection of "children story books" as it is written now; I mean that in a positive way.

i have to tell u story..
once up on time there was one old man who work all his life and build one extra house thinking he will use the rent money for his retirement... then this young man come and ask for rent and start paying rent 10 birr ... then our beloved dear father መንጌ come and confiscated this old man house and give it to the young man .. now the young man start paying only five birr and love it.. and never bothered to build his own home while he was young because መንጌ took that drive out of him because he give him other people house..
then Golden come to town ..and Golden Meles want to return the nationalized house to the old man .. but this young man and his like come out in force telling Meles not to return the house to the old man who is the truth owner of the house .. so Golden meles stop the returning policy .. then 20 years passed and that young man is now is old man ... he have no other income but the ቀበሌ ቤት ብቻ ነው ያለው so he figure out he can sublease the ቀበሌ ቤት and support his retirement... live was good but another problem trigger the housing crisis... now the 3rd generation renter start protesting why renter of ቀበሌ ቤት allowed to rent their ቀበሌ house illegally .. so the government said those who subleased ቀበሌ ቤት now can take over the ቀበሌ ቤት ...now kurma is a [email protected]@h the old man who rent the ቀበሌ ቤት which doesnt belong to him .. doesnt even the law is passed and could not understand what is going on that his only income taken away from him.. u feel sorry to him bu t this the same renter said dont return the house to the truth owner some 20 years ago... i know it is complected story but beautiful story...
in መቀሌ everyone accept the return of the house to owner so the house returned not the buda Amhara
