    I don’t understand why these guys have shaped their mustache. Are they trying to look young? If that’s the case it is not working. If anything they look like a whole bunch of gay guys.

      Sara, Anchim shibetishin lematfat color atitekemi. We don’t care about their old age, what we really care about is their timely and young ideas. These people age is not more than the age of Birhanu Nega.

      • sara says:

        What i am trying to say is that a man should look like a man not a woman. All the men in my family look like men. Look the difference between Abadula’s picture and the rest, thats how a man should look like.

    Last time I louged so hard, tears ran down my legs, when I watched “Dr.” Aba Dula’s interview on the Egyptian TV English program. He embarrassed not only Weyane but the whole country that he failed to make a single correct statement in English. I am not sure for how much he bought the degrees. I bet Prof Dr Costantinos Berhe assisted him to get his degrees from Oxford and university of California……kkkkkkkk……. And now he’s is sitting with his moron fellows to draft the country’s future……hahahahahahaha

    • Beza says:

      Tesfayeleleh Shimagle you should be embarrassed of yourself not Abadulla. Why you get so embarrassed? He is much better than Birhanu Negadew. Kita Ras. Your 4th grade English should embarrass you. The kkkkkkkkkkkkiiii you are writing makes perfect in English. Your writing which, doesn’t make right grammatically and full of insults is not English. If you know your stupidity you will sleep in your nursing home quietly and silently.

      • Tesfalehulum says:

        Beza (Hagos) commented above, ” you are writing makes perfect in English. Your writing which, doesn’t make right grammatically and full of insults is not English.”……does anyone understand it ??…..kkkkkk

        That’s why I call TPLF symptizers and merceneries are bunch of MORONS and product of the stone factory, Civil Service College……kkkkkkkk
        Buy one PhD and get one free…..kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

        • Beza says:

          Tesfayelelew shimagle. What did I write prior to that ? Denez shimagle. Read it together,The kkkkkkkkki, you are writing makes perfect in English?. I want make it clear Mr. Kkkkkkkkkkkkiiiiii. Den Koro at least I don’t say louged to write laughed. Kita Ras 4th grader EPRP anten bilo degmo sew arami.

          Take it to your sol teacher, to explain it to you. You will be the last creature on earth to make fun of someone’s writing.

      • kk says:

        @Beza- your writing too sucks! Your writing (there should be always comma before which) which, doesn’t make right grammatically (this is jargon with no clear meaning) and full of insults is not English (someone’s writing being full of insults doesn’t mean s/he does not write good English). Overall, I gave you C- for this!!! Hope you’ll work hard to improve your grade in the future!

        • Beza says:

          Tesfa yelew shimagle, lover of kkkkkkkkki make correction, you are not supposed to say “your writing too sucks!” I am not gonna tell you this time.

    • Beza says:

      Shimaglew Tesfa Bekele, last time you louged. Kita Ras shimagle. First of all learn how to spell laugh. Yemehayim tirkm diaspora.

    • Ermi says:

      That interview was hilarious. Not only he couldn’t make a single sentence in a correct grammatical English, but also no substance in what he would have said. He was like a fifth grader adgi.

      Peace to all but Woyanes!


    • guest says:

      Why should you get embarrassed! I am an Ethiopian and am not embarrassed, and would be better if you speak on behalf of yourself. It simply means English is not his language. A consideration would have been for him to be interviewed in Amharic, with a direct translation done concomitantly when aired.

      I personally do not equate speaking perfect English as synonym to high intelligence. The majority of the world population is not English speaker by the way and in several settings English is not medium of education. Please show up in German, France, Russia, Switzerland, etc etc.

    hi freind the program is a matter of brain not english. chiese they plan in chiniese pls think. I respect all for there contribution and commitment towards development of the country. they are 100% usefull for the country at this time. we dont want to lose what we looking now GREEN not burger


    • Tesfalehulum says:


      It could be proper if Menasse Woldegioris (Aba Dula) used the official language of Ethiopia. However, he thought having a pile of ???? degrees equates knowledge…..weshet sidegagem ewnet yemeslal…..he completely forgets that he is a 5th grader. According to his Wikipedia profile, “his civilian education was focused on public administration. His Bachelor and Master’s of Arts degrees from the US were both obtained from Century University in 2001 and 2004, respectively. Abadula has also obtained his Master’s Degree from Greenwich University, UK, in 2009.”…. By the way, Abebe Gelaw professionally busted the bogus “Century University” and Greenwich university sells degrees for weyane officials coordinated by international Leadership Institute in Ethiopia. So, basically Aba Dula holds “one bachelor and two Master degrees.” He served as the weyane’s defense minister, intelligence chief, president of Oromia region and now as a speaker of the house. He is also the leader of the “shimagele” delegation to Egypt. Saying that, are you saying it is not embarrassing watching on international media a person with the above high official profile mumbling nonsense with a broken English?? Anyway, we know Weyane hode ader cadres has no the word shame in your dictionary. I am embarrassed because my beloved country represented by these scums, weyane duket teshekami…..MORONS!

    WOYNESHET SELESHI demanded the Ethiopian government to stop the modern day slave trade to Middle East specially Saudi Arabia she also demanded what Derg government confiscated from the Ethiopian Adhari need to be returned to the ancestorasl owners instead of being sold to the Ethiopian government ofiicials business partners.

    She knew she was risking her life when she made those demands but she did it anyway. She knew
    Since the news went out about the Ethiopian Court ordering Ethio-Saudi billionaire to return $905.2 million he took in overpayment arising from tangled web of corruption the in 2011 the Saudi Arabia made sure Ethiopians will not work and live peacefully in Saudi Arabia.

    The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has filed a judgment execution pleading against Shadia Nadim, a person convicted of corruption along with the former Deputy Minister Tamrat Layne, and Sheik Mohammed Hussein al-Amoudi at the Seventh Bench of the Federal High Court at Lideta on October 19 last week. Shadia was convicted years ago for collaborating with Tamrat, who was found guilty of power abuse, nepotism and stashing public money away by allowing illegal auctions to be carried out and took 16 million dollars from Sheik Mohammed Hussein al-Amoudi, under the pretext of paying the debt of the Ethiopian government, and divided the money among his accomplices and kept his share in a foreign bank.

    The second judgment debtor, Sheik al-Amoudi, was ordered to pay USD 905,158.06 to MoJ because he took USD 9.9 million which is more than the USD 9 million that the Federal Supreme Court had ordered for him by pleading to the Swiss court where Shadia kept her share in Swiss banks by her and Blen Getachew’s name, daughter of Tamrat, the pleading read.

    The presiding Judge, Muluken Teshale ordered both Shadia and al-Amoudi to execute according to the law or if they have any reason not to present their reason to the court, and adjourned the case for November 18, next month.

    Oh mother Ethiopia! Sad to see you fall in the hands of this rag-tag gorilla bandits who have the audacity to shape and carve your future in the critical aspects of economy, democracy, education etc…..

    This should be the farce of the century!!!!!!!!!! just to see Abadula (YeDerg meto-aleka), Addisu (elementary teacher), Bereket and Abay (college dropouts and gorilla bandits) to foolishly think they’ll transform Ethiopia to a middle income country. Really?? Really??

      You sound like yederg Meto Aleka, yESAT anchor journalist, Sisay Agena. At least, Abadula was on the front and joined the rebels. But sisay was hiding in his birth place Hadiya.

  10. Tatek says:

    The growth and Transformation Plan—very much within the perimeter of the only politically correct doctrine in the country right now ( ‘’Revolutionary Democracy and Developmental State’’) is in perfect symbiosis with the ‘’Communist engineering’’ that moulded the TPLF from its very inception as a Communist League of Tigray and continued to shape the ruling power to this day. With the First Phase of the GTP coming to an end at the end of the calendar year, it is worth noting to see if it was really a success or not. The regime claims it had successfully recorded a double-digit growth uninterrupted for the last two decades, though this seems at odds with the reality on the ground. According to the World Bank, Ethiopia still remains one of the Heavily Indebted Poor countries in the World, though the Bank never refuted that Ethiopia was showing some growth nonetheless. World Bank officials at the Ethiopian Country Office were repeatedly frustrated that the Economic and Fiscal Policy briefing they were receiving from the Treasury and the National Bank were not only grossly doctored to the regime’s liking but they were also arbitrarily calculated to serve the Govt’s political gimmick that any claim of economic growth below 11% wouldn’t do. Reports on the nation’s financial health over the last two decades show that the nation had never run a surplus—it in fact had been in the Red territory, and despite the Govt’s claim of continued Economic growth at a paltry 11%, the Treasury had been so clear that the country wouldn’t be able to function without the 35% Budgetary Support it has been receiving from donors and creditors. With borrowing and spending flying way north without any one putting a cap on them, forty percent of our GDP going to servicing our national debt and defense spending being 10% higher than that of Health, Education and Social Services combined, Ethiopians are only naïve to believe the Govt that the nation is growing at an alarming rate never seen in its entire history. In nations cursed with leaders with an authoritarian bent like ours, putting politically correct people in charge of the nation’s Fiscal Policy organ is not only a norm but is a necessity to keep any information flow as sealed as possible. This ensures that only information that the Govt wants the public to know makes it out of the Treasury and National Bank Buildings. ‘’It is like asking to know a woman’s age that it is so much sealed with stone’’, one female Fiscal Policy expert fumed to me in Brussels. This bred a lack of trust between the EPRDF Govt and the donor Community that Colonel Zenawi unsuccessfully lobbied G8 leaders in Glasgow, Scotland to write-off Ethiopia’s debt. While PM Tony Blair and President George W. Bush were initially cozy to the idea, France and Germany were concerned that Ethiopia would possibly lose the money that it would have saved from the possible debt-relief to corruption any way and rightly rejected it. This news of Ethiopia’s pushing so hard to secure a debt-relief had reportedly led European banks, in an effort to avoid a possible insolvency that could have resulted from the debt-writing off, consider announcing a marathon selling-off of Ethiopian Govt debts—a move which could have considerably elevated the country’s borrowing costs towards unaffordable levels. Following colonel Zenawi’s sudden passing away, which took the ruling party to the grave along with the leader in the words of TPLF old guard, Sebhat Nega, the Govt’s number one priority had quickly shifted from focusing on the Economy to keeping the fragile and unholy Coalition together—so much so that TPLF stooge Hailemariam Desalegn had to go on an appointment spree that took the number of cabinet portfolio’s to more than fifty for the first time in the nation’s history— with the PM’s office alone forced to accommodate ten new positions. This brought a boatload of extra financial burden on Ethiopian tax payers who were already struggling with skyrocketing cost of living that was unprecedented in our nation’s history.

    With the debt- GDP ratio much higher than the African average, the crackdown on civil liberties nerve-racking and corruption and patronage becoming the nation’s way of life, the West is increasingly losing patience with the very regime it had accelerated to Addis Ababa.

    The regime would love to equate any Western criticism of Ethiopia’s deteriorating Human Rights record with forcing them to buy the neo-Liberal ideology whose gut the EPRDF couldn’t stand—often telling Western officials that such a move amounted to intruding into Ethiopia’s internal prerogatives, but should Addis Ababa wish to engage the West with a violent bar-brawl, the former would just need to look at Zimbabwe.
