      have you read,seen or heard on the article above that says Ethiopian government or people force the Arabs out of Ethiopia from where they invest. Hell no! So pls read the article grasp it and compile your comment. If they go, that is because their country didn’t stand on the initial terms they where promised by their king. Clear

    See yea!!

    The Ethiopian government should organize and help those Ethiopian whom have deported from Saudi and give all the lands that was given to the Saudi investors…

  3. Mario says:

    The inevitable is happening. The sooner they depart, the better. Ethiopians can feed themselves given the opportunity to utilize their human and other natural resources without Saudis investors/investiment.

    Sucker Saudis go home!!!

  4. Harlem says:

    The Ethiopian diplomats need to negotiate with the Saudi investors so the deportees get preference path to work at the Saudis farms in Ethiopia .By giving the Ethiopian deportees a chance to work at the Saudi Arabia investors farm in Ethiopia, the Ethiopians everywhere will feel a great sense of redemption . It will be a sign of good will gesture on the side of the Saudi Arabians showing the desire to build the deportees self-esteem heavily. These deportees know both the Saudi Arabian and Ethiopian working culture better than anybody else. They are crucial to bring more harmonic cooperation between the two countries.

  5. jafar says:

    Good riddance. Saudis should have been expelled violently exactly the way they expelled Ethiopians.

  6. Jazz says:

    I strongly feel Ethiopia should cease diplomatic and economic relationship with Muslim countries in the Middle East. The Ethiopian passport should exclude travel to much of the Middle East, not unlike past Ethiopian passport which imposed travel ban to South Africa during the apartheid era. The focus should be the Far East in terms of trade and the Ethiopian government making a serious initiative to create jobs at home. Moreover, Ethiopians have unrealistic and favorable view of immigration; immigrating has been a status symbol even when one immigrates for menial jobs in the Middle East. I think we have to acknowledge that Muslim Arabs don’t like christian Ethiopia and the government should not pretend the shameful incident against Ethiopians in Saudi Arabia is an isolated incident.

    what skill are you talking about?
    We know how to plough and harvest. Our problem is money. Why is our government not organizing young Ethiopians in the rural area like it is doing to the young in the urban centres. Shaping stone is a skill Ethiopians know less than farming. It is not only water, wind and fire! Our government should be thaught that our youngs are the costly resources of the country! Come on and use your people. WEYANE!

  10. Tazabi says:

    Money: there is enough money in the hands of Ethiopians in and outside Ethiopia.
    Skill, Know how: There are enough enthusiastic professionals in agriculture, business, research etc in this field.
    Productive Manpower: abondant
    shortage: an integrated functioning system, trust, patriotism, engagement to public interest

  12. Alula says:

Anyways, Ethiopian must united against Egyptian politicians intention to put Ethiopia into square one! Let’s not forget that Egyptian politicians are using Ethiopian opposition like G7 & their media outlet ESAT as well!
