  1. Honoring Honorary Doctorate Degree of Education to a person, who has buried Education under the below in Ethiopia, is ridiculous.He should be revoked because he doesn’t deserve it. He advocates of Machiavellian ruling system and has been practicing it as Education Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Ethiopia, respectively.

      We haven’t seen these with degrees to do anything for the needy people of Ethiopia! You can call them whatever , but they are making history! Ethiopian used to die of hunger in millions during Your Derg regime & Haileslassie, but now nobody dies/ will die of hunger!
      We know what these with decorated degrees are doing in the diaspora!

      All histories of Ethiopia was made by individuals or groups with no degree or high school deploma! What These who should have been better brought was destruction during Derg & Haileselassie! You are criticizing , but you can’t see what these you called high school drop outs are doing to accomplish 100 years neglected country!
      Finally you are denying , but history will keep the truth on the ground!
      Kfasil, you might have a degree ,but I can see how you think! I guess a high school drop out could do better!
      Ethiopia prefers a citizen who can work, but not who can brag with empty egos!

    We heard from Abebe Gelaw’s invesigative journalism that the “record-breaking geniusity” of Arkebe Equbay was a fake media hype of Aigaforum and tigraionline.
    We know and we have seen enough one way or the other that the govt and party officials in ethiopia are really ignorants who lead the country towards an abyss. Those who lead and those who collaborate are doing the same. Education or literace in wider sense is not aquiring a certeficate, Diploma or degree as as last goal. It gives meaning when it makes a positive permanent change in a society: attitudes, spiritually not only mareially.
