That decision was to defend a citizen. Even though it is hard to admit it, the girl on the story of the film should have been protected because she has a right to benefit from her story. The mistake was Meron’s and the director Zeresenay. Don’t exaggerate it to the highest pit. Let her come flip burger in the west.

      Beza (Hagos),

      While Meron writes that outsatinsing poem, you were peeing on your computer keyboard defending the mefa TPLF. Jealousy is killing you because of a wide recognition of Meron’s poem. Moron 5th grader TPLF mercenaries and sympathizers like you only knows scribbling nonsense.

        Tessfa yeleleh Shimagle EPRP Tesfa Bekele negn keVirginia eyalk Zifen ESAT lay. My Moron brain can create a clone better than you. I smile when I see your comments not because they are full of jokes but lifeless writing. You always write whenever you think somebody is against the government. At least this government will not kill like you guys because of her opinion she has every right to express herself as long as it is expressed peacefully. Bay the way did you see her in Tigray when TPLF was celebrating it’s 40th anniversary. If you didn’t watch go and watch ETHIOPIA FIRST website. I like when you guys get hope when this kind of things happen. By the way MESAY and FASIL have been Vanished from Asmara while they are visiting ERITREA. As far as the sources they are in custody of Afar Liberation Army to be handed to Ethiopia. Kita Ras Shimagle they will get your a**from your nursing home.

So she can be parking cashier like the Derg Artists.

        Your writing will tell every body in this Web site that who is fifth grader you or me? KITA RAS EPRP

          Beza at night and Hagos on the day( I know you are travesty – BUSHTI, GAY, during the day you are a boy and at night a bar lady prostituting for wonaye mafias). Mr and Miss loser you are not worth to exist. You can keep vomiting your nonsense until your semester ends. I hope someone will shoot you soon. Gim Agases

    There is a point she is passing, but it starts by respecting others or make an agreement before you do something . We Ethiopians are not familiar with democracy,so she look like some one is behind trying to tell us Ethiopian educators are not appreciated on what they do, but I think she needs to sit down with that lady she is playing. You are someone we respect at home, but when you are out sister you are one of us, so think twice.

  4. Tazabi says:

    I am normally against censorship but such frivolous and immature if not ignorant comments deserve some kind of moderation . Please filter what you post .

    • Beza says:

      Tazabi, she has a right to say what is in her mind her frustration is because of the BANNED DIFRET movie she was leading star. So when the honey moon she is enjoying right now with SHIMAGLEW TESFA andYEDERG Cadre Alemtsehay wedajo she will understand it. Let her go as far as she go. But I advise her not to end up at the dead end. Let her come hear flip burger like ALMAZ Meko.

  5. Ashan Gulite says:

    She Can leave the country that is her right and choice, I respect that but, telling others to do the same is in my opinion is not right and disrespecting your own country, which gave you life and fame is out right kehadinet sister.You can hate the government heck I left because I hate the Durg, so no big deal here, when you start campeining that is really suspicious.

  6. Sabrina says:

    I’m sure she didn’t believe what she wrote on her poem, this lady was one of my role model but starting from now she have to be canceled from any EBC.screen.Weregna.

    • welde says:

      I think some of you guys have misanderstood the message of the poem. It was not directed at any particular individual or institution. it was directed at all of us Ethiopians, change our attitude and persuption about us as people and country vis a vie diaspora and foreign land.She is saying we have to respect ourselves and have confidence in our ability to change for the better. It’s a message of believe in our value.
      By the way this is not malady of the Ethiopians, its allover the world, incuding not long ago the chinese. The chinese had the same attitude 30-40 years ago, but not anymore. We will be in that position.

    She was one of the beneficiaries of the current government!

    who can believe this!
    Sad

    Where are you dear Merone?????????

  9. Mahi says:

    I thought she was different and smart but she just needs attention like the others!!meriye we don’t give a fuck about you or what u have to say!!!

  10. Ados says:

    It is her strong feelings to exercise what she feel peacefully and with loyalty for her self in preface. sadly here its seems that she is triggred externally, but your country is at any time and place urs. And she was highly cultivated and reached to high professional by this government.

  11. Enat says:

    What a selfish and small minded woman.
    It is interesting to see how people are so self-centered and how far they can go if they feel that their fame and money is at stake.
    We all know from the brief interview this actress gave during the banning of the premier of Difret that she was so upset.
    Later we heard that Difret was banned by court order because the actual woman who inspired the story sued the producer.
    It wasn’t directed to this ranting actress or anybody in particular, rather it was just a matter of executing court order.

    But this small minded, wanna-be poet took it personal and tarnish all efforts the country is making.
    It is so selfish and Hodam endeavor. What that country achieved the last decade and half is not the triumph of the ruling party alone, it was the result of painstaking hard work by the people of Ethiopia. By trying to disrepute some individuals you’re not happy with due to your personal grudges, you inadvertently or intentionally discrediting the entire nation. I’m very ashamed of you. I don’t want to see your wide mouth again. You better do something with it that fits its size.

    Hey I’ve known you since the Durg time of your first appearance in the media.

    In case you don’t notice, it has been over 20 years since this government came to power.
    You have been the most Akatari in that camp.

    What’s new now that you didn’t realize in those 20 years during which you garner fame and money.
    You cannot fool us by saying that it is for the masses you’re worrying. Because the masses were there in all the years you f***ing your fellow immoral so called artists. Shame, shame, shame on you.

    By the way, the poem, apart from its cheap message, is a crap in every other literary measurement. It is a boring, long, rhyming nonsense and scattered thought.

    Hey, you could have been awarded the asylum you’re looking forward without making this glib mumbling. Busted!!!!!!!!!

      This kind of analysis was passed history in the Derg time. EPRDF has created her from scratch so let her enjoy. There are so many young and brilliant artists thanks for EPRDF leadership. She can go where the shortage of the Artists.

  15. ASH says:

    HOLD ur horse …. the poem have wax and gold

    the wax is she is saying get the hell out of Ethiopian if u need respect..

    the Gold meaning is deep she is saying we should start respect the local instead of the Diaspora

  19. G24 says:

    Hey guys
    let her exercise her right she has right to speak , right as long as her article is not source of conflict… as usual EPRDF is free to criticize and also …they din’t take care of the ground management so let her say what she want ….leave her free….However, if she is out of homeland i would shame of her alot……

  20. G24 says:

    Please ask yourself Why Meron write this….?
    1. because DIFRET was banned by the court order.
    2. because now understand her right….
    3. because she needs more recognition.
    4. because she take care of her citizen….
    5. because she need to join to politics coz…
    6. because now understand her how EPRDF wrong…
    just ask and post it….
