    The US firm Motorola is under investigation by Ethiopian authorities for involving in corruption that involved the vice mayor of Adama. The Vice Mayor Of Adama and his family members were arrested at Bole International Airport while trying to illegally launder the money they accepted from Motorola as a gift for promoting Motorola’s communication satellites for the Ethiopian Space Science Society. The recent crack down on foreign firms and their representatives in Ethiopia is aimed at stoping the Capital flight money leaving Ethiopia that amounts to 85% of the country’s GDP

      Are u sure u have no hidden intention, reporting about corruption under this title…who in the right mind take money note out of Ethiopia like that…u must be kidding

      U said the accepted gift from Motorola for promoting Motorola communication satellite if this truth then this people deserved much more …Motorola simple paying for service rendered
      Corruption is when u get paid without adding value , in this case they add value Ethiopia going to get communication satellite what more do u want Motorola get business and more Ethiopia will be hired and communication cost go down and speed of communication higher

      In closing what I want is Ethiopia American investor coming to idea is very simple if u have 1000dollars u r in all we want is another 1000 interested investor and we will havè one million dollar to invest this we can attract one million Ethiopian investor and we will have one billion dollar investment ….

    To stable the countries economy for long run Ethiopia is not balanced with US economically and the principle of capitalism. plus is not guaranteed when the politics road is turning sharply…… might get easy for “SANCTION”, so small businesses are better than huge firms for developing countries,
    sorry, this is my personal comment. am not economist, just 10th grade graduate.

    Kumlahew, I read few days ago that GlaxoSmithKline was found guilty of bribing chinise officials and was fined.I would not wonder that if motorola is bribing Ethiopian officials. There are many cases where specially western companies bribe locals. GoE should be aware of this while dealing with western companies and should device a way to control it.

  4. Gezaee H. says:

    Dear Dawit: you have become now TPLF’s sales man? it is okay because you have a right to do that. But be reminded fanning or collaborating with corrupt officials is a crime. Since you know well EPRDF is the most corrupt government Ethiopia ever had. 11 billion dollar laundered from the poor Ethiopian people. And you guys you fan this rotten regime? A regime committed to sale Ethiopia to the cheapest bidder? There is time for everything. What will happen will happen because that is God’s will. But those who commit injustice, steal from the poor, orphans, widows, … and send their kids using public money to overseas and build villas, …will not go unpunished. My friend just arrived again yesterday and he said if you do not have zemed or are not a member of EPRDF, you are second citizen and you will only watch people doing business on the flight which is called air by air business. And the corrupt government came to my university and asked my government and my institution to help Ethiopia? EPRDF came to beg help? what do they want? We are waiting what help will they ask ? Beggar, burden of the world, EPRDF beggar, leba corrupt, and international beggar.

    • A....A says:

      Aye Gezaee! Time is just flying by while you are wasting yourself!
      You said that Dawit became TPLF …. & again you said it is his right…! TPLF was the only one stood & fought for Ethiopia when everyone abandoned it…! What are you talking about? Are you out of your mind? What choice do Ethiopia had in 1991? Mr who are you to belittle the brave woyane who freed Ethiopia from a century of ignorance,poverty,famine …..? You have better to find your type & a lost hater like you!

      • Gezaee H. says:

        Woyane did not save Ethiopia, but woyane destroyed Ethiopia. If we have to do cost and benefit analysis which is not always counted in Ethiopia and per woypane. Woyane has done more damage than good. 60 000 Tigreans youth perished for nothing. 100 000 Tigrean maimed or became disable because of war. The entire Tigreans population became refugees. I am out of Ethiopia because of woyane only. I would never have left from my country the evil woyane did not exist. How many other Ethiopians died because of the bloody war woyane waged for 17 years? may be millions of other Ethiopians excluding the woyane fighers died? How many schools get destroyed by woyane? how many hosptials got destroyed? how many bridges destroyed by woyane? Plus add the 100 000 souls who perished fighting shabia in 1998-2000? plus the land-locking of Ethiopia by forece by woyane ? Add to this those who perished fighting with Shabia to landlock Ethiopia and to help shabia to separate Eritreans from their own country, Ethiopia? Add to this the Somalia war? add to this the Ogaden war? add to this the 11 billion dollar stolen from the poor Ethiopian people? Add the 44 billion dollar paid to Sudan, Djibouti, Somalia, Kenya to buy ports? Add the 10 billion dollar wasted to watch shabia from 2000 upto today? add to this the alger’s agreement? add to this the EEBC agreement? add to this corruption ? add to this shipping teen girls for sex trade by PM HD? add to this sex tourism opened by woyane? add to this Ethiopian villages became child adoption targets? If there is evil in Ethiopia, it is none than woyane. It is just a cursed organisation that has no agenda or aim or objective than ruling the poor people by gun and even selling them to Arabs. Add to this the sale of the entire gambela to 37 country investors? Aparently woyane has officially sold Ethiopia to the lowest bidder. Woyane Ethiopian awerede enji min ametal? This ethnic or nationalities issue was solved by Mengistu Hailemariam and everything Ethnic was free and liberated. TPLF freed no one in Ethiopia. TPLF just have held Ethiopians hostage by denying their rights. TPLF rules Ethiopia by force, not by choice or election. TPLF is now begging in the name of Ethiopians and TPLF top officials send their kids to Europe, North America, China,… at the expense of the Ethiopian people. TPLF aka EPRdf has enemy. EPRDF’s enemy is no one but TPLF or EPRDF itself. The diaspora are right when they say woyane is leba. They knew it even before woyane sets its foot in addis. They said woyane is banda, leba. Time has proved woyane is now officially leba that stole 11 billion dollars from the poorest people on the planet. Woyane fought for power, woyane did not fight to liberate anyone. You will deny now you are evil and corrupt, but there will be time to pay back for what you have done and you are doing to the country. I know woyane from day one is against Ethiopia and Ethiopian people. Ethiopians worst enemy is no one but woyane. I am sure woyane will never admit this because woyanes believe everything wrong is right. If we have to add all the money wasted, time wasted, money stolen, money spent, life lost, resources lost because of woyane? the kisara woyane brought on us 99% more than the benefit Ethiopians got from woyane. I know the way the do their compaign is not good, but diasporas are right in their opposition. They know woyane is against Ethiopia and Ethiopians. This is known to everyone regardless what woyanes think. Leba can not liberate anyone. Corrupt can not liberate anyone. The leba woyane is now begging Egypt to use water that is in Ethiopia? The stupid woyane declared it diverted the Nile and then Egyptians reacted? why did woyane has to declare it diverted the Nile while it did not ? Besides, woyane invited Egypt to be co-owner and partner of its so called GERD? why a patriotic Ethiopian invite an enemy to have a say on a national treasure? The water is not in Egypt? It is in Ethiopia? why does woyane to beg Egypt? Old habit die hard? woyane loves begging. Now woyane invited Egyptians to visit the GERD, take pictures? examine it? how can a normal person invites an enemy to study the dam? The enemy who declares no drop of water for Ethiopia of the water in Ethiopia? Shame woyane, lksks woyane, yetark ateloch,… I knew how stupid you are when you forced 96 million people to be landlocked by force? You high level stupidity and backwardness, primitivity was seen from day one. But do not worry, today’s king is tomorrow dead.There will be time that Ethiopian will say enough is enough. I hope woyane disappear like derg one day. I do not hate human being but I do hate selfish, arrogant, ignorant and corrupt human being regardless who they are? People who believe Ethiopia has to buy ports while its ports are sitting idle are the most stupid people on our planet. They must not be allowed to rule Ethiopians. Such low level idiots must not have been allowed to run the country for 24 years now. But it is the useless Ethiopians who gave a lease of life to woyane by working by hate politics. But never mind, there will be a day for Ethiopians to say, no more corruption. I say to woyane you are a disgrace, corrupt people. You must know you are recorded in Ethiopian history as thieves of 11 billion dollars. Haileslassie was accused of stealing 150 million dollars? compare it with 11 billion dollars? Mengistu was never accused of stealing money. You are recorded in Ethiopian history as the most corrupt leaders Ethiopian ever had. 44 billion + 10 billion + 11 billion dollars = 65 billion dollar wasted ? What did woyane do? GERD? how much does GERD cost? 4 billion ? do the cost and benefit analsysis and make judgment what woyane benefitted Ethiopians? Ethiopians are dying in the middle east everyday? even derg did not subject Ethiopians to such humiliation. It is better to die in your country than to be shipped by your own government to be raped and to die in a foreign land? TPLF a curse/ Gebremedhin, the former treasurer of TPLF told the truth but we did not want to listen to him. I actually thought he was mad man. But time has proved him right, TPLF is a cursed organisation that is hell bent against Ethiopian national interest from day one. I wonder why these people wasted all these years sleeping in caves for 17 years to end up the most corrupt human on our planet? Who would think people who starving, thirsty, sleeping in dust and competing to die end up the most corrupt people ? It is shame. If the people who died fighting during the TPLF war rise up and see what woyanes are doing? oh my God, they will regret they were allaying with such low life and corrupt people. It is shame. This is an ultimate human betrayal for money and temporary gain.

          During the Ethiopian revolution, the people of Tigrai was for their demise because of conspiracy of the then elites! Tigrian left their their homes as it is in thousands in search of food! Everywhere Tigrian go, they were called names…! Finally Tigrai was left with nothing, not even one meal a day….! Therefore, the people chose to liberate themselves….fought a harsh war for 17 years & won! Tigrian paid Over 60,000 martyrs to liberate themselves from the then elites of Ethiopia! Now, the majority Ethiopian are doing well!
          For your knowledge, the over 60,000 martyrs who played a major role to free Ethiopia didn’t die in vein , but in dignity! It’s obvious that there is nothing perfect in this world, not even in the first world,nevertheless, things will be alright as we go!
          You seem like you are concerned about Ethiopia , but we know what you are upto, & hence, you have no substance in what you say at all!

          Ethiopia has left Egypt with no choice, but the round table & finally Ethiopia forced Egypt to come to the table ! Anyways , the GERD is being built according to its plan & design nonstop, but you are blabbing a nonsense….! Egypt has never been a master of Ethiopian & will never be! This is the 21st century, a time of diplomacy!
          Look what the diplomatic power of the EPRDF done to Egypt & its hub of mercenaries, your Eritrea! Don’t you see? Ethiopia’s enemies tried to Aftica’s Syria , Lybia ….! But it’s Ethiopia , therefore , it always takes its own way! Ethiopia survived the colored , Arab spring(jesmine) revolutions…! You can’t see the power of Ethiopia in this century? Kkkkk! What you can’t see is, everywhere you go you failed, so you think everyone, everything is failing! You tried everywhere …from EPRP to Derg, to woyane then to shabiya voted as Eritrean ( though nothing wrong to an Eritrean)….! እዚ ናይ ምይይጥ መድረኽ ስለዝኾነ ኣሕፅር ኣቢልካ እንተትፅሕፎ ፅቡቕ ነይሩ። ብዝተረፈ ግን ኣነ ስራሕ ኣለኒ ንስኻ ስራሕ የብልኻን ፅሑፍካ ነዊሕ እተኾይኑ ንዳዊት ሃቦሞ ንሪኦ። ሃለውለውካ በዚሑ!
          Eternal glory to our martyrs!

            For you everyone is a failure except your LEBA and racist bosses of TPLF at 4 kilo….kkkkk……let me take a swipe on your last statement on the above comment…..almost 3/4 of TPLF top boss’s are Eritreans….your late boss, the rotten dictator Meles KeZenawi , once said……””Spending one hour with Isaias is far more worthwhile, rewarding and enlightening than reading ten books” ….kkkkk….so, do you think you and other Woyane crooks have a moral right to accuse others as Shabiya proxy ??…..atfoger!….addis netela zefen nat….”shabiya”…..hahahahaha

          • A....A says:


            All these you label Eritrean was born & grew in Ethiopia & they are Tigrian & Tigrians are originated from the Axumite kingdom(which is the orgin of Ethiopia) I know individuals like you wanted to give a citizenship…! It doesn’t matter what you say, but these you are labeling are Tigrians forcefully sold to the fascist Italian by Your power hungry Emperor Minilik! Nevertheless , They are all our brothers! Though Eritrean chose the wrong way against their own identity ,
            ስጋ ቢወድቅ ኣፈር ይዞ ይነሳል ሲሉ ኣልሰማህም? Remember: Tigrigna speaking in Eritrea are Tigrian, Afars are Afar, Kunamas are Kunama, Sahos are Saho…! The difference is ; we Tigrians in Ethiopia refused to accept the evil creation of Minilik & fascist Italian to divide Tigrian for the simple reason of satisfying his power hunger! Don’t you think so Mr Tesfalehulum?
            Tesfalehulum , I don’t think if you know what you are talking about!

          Gezaee, are you still there confused? This is acute insanity and hence you better try to see your doctor if any. Otherwise, I am sure you will pass away ever yelling before the tplf passes away. I want you to say something.

    • Be ewnetu says:

      When EPRDF came to power the countries total wealth was less than 11 Billion. but now grow up to 48 Bln according to IMF and World bank 2013 GDP statics. but u r right high corruption in any offices in the country. not only the high rank EPRDF officials, almost everywhere in the world include oppositions and communities.

      • Tesfalehulum says:


        You’ve no substance ….but bragging every time….and trying to intimidate people….it shows how you’re living under fear and insecurity since deep in your gut you know that that looter and racist woynae days are numbered…..stinky woynae!

        • A....A says:

          We heard this “woyane days are numbered” since 1998, even since 1969-70 Ethiopian calendar,nevertheless, all these who counted woyane’s day had been counting their own days! when shabiya was on its hay days! We heard the same thing again in 2005, when the colored revolutionaries hoped to grab power through colored revolution! We heard the same power hunger during Arab spring (jesmine) revolution! Yours & the like are just hoping against hope! There are 9 regional government governing themselves…..! Check woyane’s track records & make your info straight sir!
          Every woyane’s enemies are in disarray at this moment ,therefore , can you explain how woyane’s days are numbered? I know you guys fold your eyes & count woyane’s days in your day dream, but when you wake up from your day dream , it you & your false dream there! Remember: woyane will be there as long as the people of Tigrai are there! One is soaked in a hate politics can’t understand anything at all!

          Tesfalehulum, don’t think you are chatting with woyane, but volunteer! I’m too weak to be woyane! If I were woyane , I wouldn’t waste my time talking to you & your type!
          God bless Ethiopia !
          God bless the EPRDF!

          • Tesfalehulum says:

          • A....A says:


            Take it easy! Tigrian paid their life for free & freed Ethiopia!went from Dedebit barefoot all the way to Debre Zeit & took over The Tanks, fighter jets & everything & see for yourself where they reached Ethiopia now, I know you can’t see anything real! I hope you know what I’m talking about! If you play politics, you must start your politics where you grew up as a person & your service the public…! This is a federalism time! No need for Hyenas in a sheep skin to be appointed from somewhere!

  6. Gedif says:

    Dear Dawit,

    Thank You for posting this big event which is so important for our country. It shows us where the government stands regarding investment in Ethiopia. Unfortunately Most Ethiopian sensational and so called opposition diaspora media outlets are obsessed with trivial and ‘tera’ events like ‘confronting Woyanie officials’ type news. Of course I am not expecting them to cover this news.It is beyond their capacity.

  7. Gezaee H. says:

    It is better to save the money stolen than to knock doors of every country begging to come and to buy whatever the country have. Or if you can not do it, you better resign and give chances to others than going to every country and begging to invest and begging to help you. Lack of self-confidence and lack of right is the biggest problem in Ethiopia. Ethiopians do not know their rights, specially TPLF. All TPLF knows is begging and selling of Ethiopia its land, its people and its national assets. They call these liberation? liberation my ass ? Land-locking 96 million people by force? Shipping teen girls for sex trade to middle east? Sending kids as adoptees across the world? Laundering 11 billion dollar from the poor people? Selling every national treasure to one Arab man called Almouldi?We are told this what TPLF fought for? Shame liberation? add the 20 years wasted in civil war,and add the suffering that ensued by the so called liberation struggle? Consider the number of Ethiopians died in the so called liberation struggle? Do cost and benefit analysis and make a conclusion? TPLFites slept in caves for 17 years to end up the most corrupt self-elected despotics? Shame, your ambassador is hit by rotten egg in Sweden. When Ethiopians get their day, it will worse than that. Be reminded if you think you will go away abusing our people ? you are absolutely wrong. There will be paying back time. Feasting and abusing will stop one day. Those of you who work the corrupt government think twice. Today’s king is tomorrow dead. Only truth prevails, not force or gun or corruption. The worst society in the world is a corrupt society. Ethiopians were very decent people before the advent of TPLF. Alas, the liberator has become a burden to the Ethiopians. The liberator is now fatten with fats and has no ear to hear and has no eyes to see. All that sleeping in the dust with thirst, hunger, cold, war,…is forgotten. Now it is time to loot and abuse the people of Ethiopia? 11 billion dollars lost from the most poor country on earth? Ethiopia, the poorest country on our planet lost 11 billion dollars and plus it spend 40 billion dollar to buy ports from Kenya, Sudan, Djbouti, Somalia,… all these because of the dumb headed so called themselves liberators? can you imagine the liberator holding hostage 96 million people denying them their natural right to use their port and instead forcing the poor Ethiopians to pay 40 billion dollars to date? Ethiopians will never forgive for this crime when the day comes. Idiots

    Woyane again bows to its boss in Egypt. It now handed to its bosses in Cairo the design of the so called GERD and every details of the dam is handed to woyane master’s in Cairo. We told you so this is a cursed organisation who love bending, bow and get screwed all the time. Signing binding agreements is the cursed organisations emblem. All these dam bluff is only a propaganda to stay on power, there is no any national interest in it. By the way, why would a poor country build such a dam only for electricity? Such huge spending must have been for a multipurpose dam that serves agriculture and power generation. The Dam is a fiasco of TPLF to stay on power. The fact the design and other details are handed to woyane’s master in cairo says that dam does not belong Ethiopia, but to Egypt. Asafari, Lkami warada generation

It presupposes; but resumes itself in the present by a tangible fact: the consent, the clearly expressed desire to continue life in common. (Source: French scholar, Ernest Renan 1834, page 88)

    John Green and Bill Gates Are Teaming Up to Bring Clean Water to Ethiopia,
    Gates has said he’ll match $100,000 if Green can raise it

    Author John Green has gotten a lot of attention for his heart-wrenching novel The Fault in Our Stars, the bestselling young-adult-novel-turned-blockbuster-movie about two young cancer patients who meet in a support group. But most fans who only know of Green for this reason aren’t aware of his philanthropic efforts, in which he leverages his large social media following and YouTube fan base. His charitable fundraisers have been geared at everything from cancer to censorship to malaria, but now he’s tackling clean water with the help of Bill Gates.

    Green’s biggest fans call themselves “Nerdfighters,” those whose goal in life is to, in Green’s words, “decrease world suck,” and Gates seems to have joined the bandwagon, pledging to match the $100,000 Green hopes to raise through “nerdfighteria.”

    .@realjohngreen Happy to help reduce world suck!
    — Bill Gates (@BillGates) September 22, 2014
    Green traveled to Ethiopia with the Gates Foundation earlier this year and documented the trip in his weekly YouTube video, saying that “with 80% of people living in rural areas,” the need for clean water in health care centers was vital. He also raved about the impression that Gates and his foundation’s CEO Susan Desmond-Hellmann left on him.

    “To be honest… I kind of assumed that Bill and Sue were visiting Ethiopia for, like, a photo op,” he says in one of his videos. “But they were there to ask questions, and lots of them…and watching Bill and Sue gravitate away from cameras and toward health workers, it became clear to me that the Gates Foundation fundamental principle that all human lives have equal value isn’t just rhetoric.”

    Green and Gates seem to be quite the power duo, with Green writing on Gates’ blog: “My visit to Ethiopia wasn’t sad—at least not merely so. It was invigorating and encouraging. And sad. … But we shouldn’t look away or feel discouraged. We should get to work.”

    As of Monday afternoon, Green’s donation page was raising more than $1,000 every 30 minutes. Watch one of his videos about his trip below.
