Message to Tigray government: Telecommunication and internet must be under the control of Tigray

Post by Halafi Mengedi » 12 May 2022, 13:14

No private company should own telecommunication and internet, Facebook and other communication instruments due to a poor country dependent on the government for healthcare, defence, education, road, water and others. The income of telecommunication and internet one of the generating revenues should be controlled by government of Tigray in order to finance the above expenditures. If the government of Tigray hand over the biggest revenue generator to the private people, how do you think the government to function as a country, the government must have some kind of income stream every year to meet the government payroll. In the western countries everything is private so healthcare, higher education, all residential roads and many others Tigray society cannot provide in Tigray and the western countries are well developed more than enough to generate tax revenue to the federal and state government to meet and surpass the need of government to meet all kind of expenditures to function as a state and federal government. Tigray will have minimum 20 years to develop itself and private citizens to create various companies and hire employees to pay taxes and the company to pay taxes enough to meet the need of government to pay off all expenditures.

I like TPM from what I see and providing excellent service to the public thus far and should be granted to be one of the public Media in Tigray to set up its own private TV and broadcast to the public rival to the state Media. This media must have full access to the government apparatus to interview and investigate any complaint citizens may have and expose them and most importantly TPM and another government media should present in every meetings of the govern party and all presidents activities and interactions with foreign and domestic meetings and gathering to tell the owners of Tigray nation. All deemed to be sensitive information would be held private by the medias, if they are harmful to Tigray and helpful for enemies and friends unnecessary information to access.

Do not make big mistake Tigray government to hand over the biggest revenue generator for the government of Tigray to finance all the expenditures like defence, education, health, government employees payroll, road expansion, water availability, maintain Tigray landscapes/forestry and others. They may argue that they will pay tax but instead of waiting 30% from the net income in the form of tax, why not take 100% net income of telecommunication and internet finance your expenses and meet annual government budget than running annual deficit the cancer of the entire economy of any country???

The Diqalu are making another huge mistakes, if you handover telecommunication and internet to few people to make money, how are you going to meet annual budget every years for Tigray. Annual budget is all government expenses for everything from education to defense to healthcare, road constructions, water availabilities and most importantly government employees against the income the government generates. Sound government is when the annual budget is less the income generates. If Annual budget is more than the government collects from tax and other income then there will be a deficit that kills the entire economy. Telecommunication and internet will cover at least one or more expenses like either education or defense or healthcare or government employees payroll. I am not even talking about securities but government of Tigray has have one steady or reliable income to depend on that is telecommunication and internet and that you should not give away from the throat of Tigray ordinary people to a few qushet based greedy people. If they want to create a private industry they should do so something else not the ready made cash cow.

Did Tigray produce mass industrialists to create private companies and hire millions of Tigrayans and pay income tax to the government and meet annual budget or expenditures, the answer is no, the majority of Tigrayans are non-tax payers and there is no dependable income stream to the government aside mining and some cash crops but the government is expected to meet all public demands. Where do you think the government can get the money if the telecom revenue goes to the few private individuals? If you are really care the public plights specially what transpired on them, no need anything to make profit from the poor Tigrayans at home.

If TPM wants to serve the public, why they want to control telecommunication and internet from the cracked poor Tigrayans throat???

Who are those requesting to control Telecom and why should any Tigrayan to pressure the government to grant you a license the public domain to be handed for few profiteering on the expense of all 52 woreda of Tigray???

If you want to serve the public no need telecom, you can ask to have TV airwave and Radio broadcasting and printing then do your profession than jumping to the most profitable sector to struggle the government and the public.

What does it to do journalists to telecom monopoly, from what I can read is they are angling in the name of Tigray but to manipulate Tigrayans? If you care for Tigray why you want the only future income generating for the government of Tigray to be taken by few individuals and the rest of society to dry out.

If the government of Tigray this is one of the biggest mistakes and betrayal to the public again the way you did for 27 years.
