    Woyane supporters in this forum including all Banda commentators who sold Ethiopia to become the recent puppet masters of woyanne supporters living inside and outside Ethiopia, I know you are many in this website (Awramba times) supporting the ideals and principles of the so called EPRDF and self appointed leading party in Ethiopia, but however many that you are blogging here, which I believe is because you are being unfairly provided the opportunity to steal the time and resources of poor Ethiopians, seat on your lazy butt chewing chat and writing nonsense comments while those seats and computers are badly needed by hard working Ethiopians. You all are hopeless cases showing off cowardice nature by submitting to force (to hodam Agazi) than submitting to reasoning. Your comments do not count here, you may talk a lot but nothing productive will come out from you, that is a known fact! Keep on talking like housewives, you time is limited; you better side with the population before it is too late.

      Woldai!
      You sound like the old guard. And you also try to warn people (“you said your time is limited”) like the DERG were saying/doing! This a sign of desperation for power! Who knows you might be one of them. Why don’t you open your closed brain and try to be civil! In today’s Ethiopia there is no place for people like you.

      Go and tell this to your uncle Issayas. If you think nothing productive comes from the brave ethiopian rulers (EPRDF), please ask issayas why he is planning to buy ethiopian electricity power indirectly from Sudan and then you will understand who is productive and who is not.

    እኔ የምለው ለዚህ ግድብ ሲባል ከሀገሪቱ የሚወጣው ወጪ አይበዛም? አንዴ ሚኒስተሮቹ፣ አንዴ ማኔጀሮቹ አንዴ፣ዘፋኞቹ ጎበኙት ሲባል፣ከግብፅ ጋር መደራደር ሲባል። ይሄ ሁሉ ሲደማመር ግድቡ ከሚያመጣው ጥቅም ይልቅ የሚያሰወጣው ወጪ እይበዛም?።
    እስከ መቼ ነው አንድ ስራ ጀምረን ብዙ ሳናወራ ጨርሰን የምናሰረክበው?
    ተከዜ ተጀመረ ተባለ፣ የተከዜ ነገር የውሀ ሽታ ሆኖ ቀረ።
    ግልገል ጊቤ ተጀመረ ተባለ፣እንዲሁ አንዴ ቁዋጥጭ ገባበት ሲባል አንዴ ምን ሲባል እሱም የውሀ ሽታ ሁኖ ቀረ።
    ምንድን ነው ነገሩ እየጀመሩ መተው ሆነ እኮ ነገሩ።

      @ Gebre you might need to update your info about Tekeze and Gilgel Gibe. Visit to a flagship project Like GERD is historic and I suggest any Ethiopian to visit if he/she can.

    Hi Dawit ….thank you very much for bringing this issue to light. I am very glad to see EThiopian airlines employee visiting the Great Abay dam. The toxic diasporas are flooding their eyes while this astonishing project is progressive. Although there is a significant moral, ethical, legal and social obligation for Ethiopians to support this great dam all the way through its accomplishemt, the unschooled and toxic diasporas prefer to work against this project mixed with foul political games Egiptians and ‘Shabia’ …. We’ll That doesn’t affect the Ethiopians from working hard to change their country, rather the reaction of the toxic diasporas is gonna be another fuel for us to chase our dream for better EThiopia.

    Life expectancy rises in poor
    nations
    GENEVA – Life expectancy in the
    globe’s poorest countries has risen by
    an average of nine years over the past
    two decades, thanks to major
    improvements in infant health, the
    United Nations said Thursday.
    In its annual statistics, the UN’s
    World Health Organization (WHO)
    said that six of the countries had even
    managed to raise life expectancy to
    over 10 years between 1990 and 2012.
    The top achiever was Liberia,
    where average lifespans increased by a
    full 20 years, from 42 to 62.
    Next in line were Ethiopia (from
    45 to 64 years), Maldives (58 to 77),
    Cambodia (54 to 72), East Timor (50
    to 66) and Rwanda (48 to 65).
    “An important reason why global
    life expectancy has improved so much
    is that fewer children are dying before
    their fifth birthday,” WHO chief
    Margaret Chan said in a statement.

    News about Ethiopia and anything matters to Ethiopia is covered by the Ethiopians like this one is the only right and best way doing the journalism work in the 21 century. Ethiopian journalists are and must be the owners and workers concerning the journalism work in Ethiopia. They must know their position, place and responsibilities as journalists in the country.

    Solders are defending the nation from any enemy including the foreign invaders. Farmers are doing the farming job. We are doing our best to produce all our food items and also for export.

    So, the Ethiopian journalists also have to own the news in Ethiopia including defending the country and citizens from the barbaric and racists western Journalists mainly the English that are badly and so long affecting the country coming in the name of journalism. They are using the journalism work like a mass destruction weapon institute in order to damage the country image and undermine the people internationally as worse as possible. They get happy when they are doing this and are making money from this.

    The Ethiopian journalists must act like solders defending Ethiopia from the foreign enemy journalists that have no what so ever respect for us. The English journalists are pure racists, criminals and hateful they must not allow in the country. The Ethiopian journalists must counter and confront them with facts and the truth about any news they are lying and misinforming about Ethiopia; the country doesn’t belong to them and the people don’t know them.

    So, doing the Ethiopians news like this one by Ethiopians is not new but all journalists worldwide are doing the journalism work about their country and people they became as journalists the first place to do the jobs like this. Copy and paste from the hateful, racists and liar English journalism work about own people and country is not really a good thing but big shame and biggest sign being incompetent working as journalist.

    The Ethiopian journalists must do the journalism work about their own country like this. No one but the Ethiopian journalists have the full right and responsibilities about news in and from and for Ethiopia. This article is a good sign. Stop the English journalists in Ethiopia. They are worse than an invading foreign force including the fascists, Nazis and colonizers. .

    Gebre you right, if you see it from that angle. However, it is negligible in comparing with the impact that leaves behind in the heart and minds of the visitor. It is the way where they can see how effective the government is utilizing their money, and gives them a sense of owner ship and the reason why they are actively participating in this process. However, the government has to create a situation where the rest of the society (ordinary citizen) from every corners of the country gets a chance to visit the grand renaissance dam, not only those who have means and opportunity like the one mentioned above. I think, by doing this you can energizes the citizen and scraps the false rumors floating around. Just simple if you have financial uncertainty, providing transportation, shelter etc… helping to cover part of their expense. Encourage high school, college and university graduates to visit the dam as a summer vacation or graduation ceremony. Encourage community in mobilizing resource or contribution. That is your ultimate politics, where you create confidence and capitalize your political interest in your journey. Seeing is believing. Don’t west your time talking. Take them to site where they can find you. In my opinion, politics is staging in front of the crown, not behind newspaper or television. You make me smile thogh! Gebre Yewuhashita? I smell it very well the aroma coming out of Tekeze and Gilgel gibe 1,2,3………,probably your nostrils are clogged up by the smell of hate politics. I respect your opinion, but let’s practice to appreciate individual or group achievement aside our difference. As far as I understand, we compete for the prosperity of our country and our people, not for our individual best interest.

    Dear weldai ! i strongly suggest you visit hizbawi gimbar radio and tv stations and listen to their shits rather than listening to the progress made by the Ethiopian airlines. Your ears are not used to listening good news like this apart from lies, distruction and killing thats taking place in Eritrea. I know you are a pieces of shit ሓጻቢ ማዓኮር ጣልያን፡ ኣብ ዓድኻ ዘየለ ነገር ቀኒእኻ ኢኻ፡ this is the results of your independence towards slavery under the mad dog junky president you have. So please, know who and where you are and try to learn abcd if you have the brain capacity, not like the president and your brothers but like your fore fathers, the hero Ethiopians.
    God bless Ethiopia

    Eritrea is on the verge of collapse. In the next six month the Eritrea government will take some desperate action. On the other hand the Ethiopian government is preoccupied with regional and internal issues which is making the Ethiopian government to neglect what is going on next door. Watch out!!!!!

  12. EAL is Boycotted! says:

    Sebhat Nega (Sibat Nekash)and his Cannibal rituals demand their cargos be delivered even if they have odors contaminatimng all the Ethiopian Airlines cargos. Ethiopian Airlines finally announced it will give 40% -55% discount to those who want to take part at the tigrai festival. That way the cargos will not be contaminated and be in need of rigorous cleaning afterwards.As if that is not enough it is also making arrangments to include those who have fly with other airlines.Many are warned not to travel alone since the Cannibals of Tigray are ready to feast with the fllesh of the new visitors.The sad thing is tip sector Diasporas talk about the endless agony the TPLF is bringing on our country but don’t do anything about it. They are so used to being stumped upon for long they just accept it like it is. Woyane made them live like a zombie not having a freedom to choose what is best for them. To make matters worse the businessmen they work for don’t want them to snap out of this Zombie lifestyle and demand freedom.
    The tip sector workers expect some other power to do what they should do themselves. For example
    You buy Woyane exported Injera , buy woyane exported Khat , buy Woyane exported music , buy movie , buy cloth and so on. You fly with Ethiopian Airlines, be friends with undercover Woyanes the list goes on. Some diasporas complain and drink alcohol to forget the reality, digging their own grave from liver failure. They Don’t join struggles specially after Kinjit fell.. They go to July 4th soccer buy all Woyane exported stuffs and drink as much as they can to numb their conscious that torments them about their own actions of indirectly giving their money to Woyane.. You name it you do it. You give your hard earned money to benefit Woyane by not giving value to the power of your income in the diaspora. The talk is not mentioned among Ethiopian diasporas about boycotts since most diasporas even in foreign lands are terrified of their Tigre neighbor or tigre coworker that is living in their community that they suspect is affiliated with the ruling party.. They indirectly support TPLF by flying EAL ,buying food exports from a country where majority sleeps hungry. The Woyanes spend hundreds of millions of dollars on their own children education in diaspora the hundreds of millions of dollars are indirectly stolen from the tip/service industry workers within diasporas. You are driving taxi , parking cars , washing dishes , attending gas stations and so on then you somehow fall for the trap of Woyane’s .the woyane kids teen agers go to top colleges in diaspora and return to Ethiopia for military trainings killing farmers , students all people all over during summer time paid by you. Stop being careless about where your money goes! Boycott!

    On June 5th, 2012 Secretary of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church’s Holy Synod in exile, Archbishop Abune Melketsekik, and other church leaders have called on the people of Ethiopia to boycott all businesses that are affiliated with dictator Meles Zenawi’s ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). The economy boycott includes profitable enterprises such as Ethiopian Airlines that are serving the genocidal junta as cash cows, and food exports from Ethiopia.
