    This is directly and indirectly caused by the outsiders with goals looking to get the nation and citizens as private property in the name of privatization through the neo Liberal system they have created for their own benefit. Western Medias and so called Journalists are created, working and breathing none stop propaganda with full of lies and misinformation for the sake of the neo Liberalism system at home and abroad. They are using them like different kinds of very important mass destruction weapons against the citizens making the mass losing themselves in ways they become toothless, powerless and helpless but accepting treatments as if they are herd of animals living to work and consume with huge debt on them for the sake of massive profits the few are collecting.

    Some Ethiopians so called Medias and journalists are the ignorant, garbage, lowest and trash part of it. They are the brainwashed and lost generations living to serve as ignorant slaves do what the neo Liberals are telling them to do in their own country against their country huge interest. They even are acting as if they are not Ethiopians and they are wishing bad things to be happening against Ethiopia comfortably behaving they don’t care even if the worst thing happen to the country because of them or others direct or indirect involvements.

    So, the answer is simple and easy and that is, keep these primitive and dangerous wild animals in cages far away from the pubic and nation matters. They are the worst criminals and very dangerous lost creatures against the nation relaying on foreigners that are using them to affect the country with little money rewards or some false promises that would never ever fulfilled but being destitute immigrant in Kenya financed by…. we know who is behind them.

    Ethiopia must happily and confidently continue fully and with confident marching towards the all out development campaigns and activities with the state owned leading capitalism system where the Ethiopians’ ownership privatization system has to continue taking place gradually based on the long term benefit for the nation and citizens.

    Does the Neo Liberal economy system/policy is working in USA and UK?
    Does the Neo Liberal economy benefiting the mass or at least the majority?
    Does the Neo Liberal economy serving the society with less crimes, homelessness, debt, numbers of prisons and prisoners?
    Does the Neo Liberal economy system has anything to mention as an example in USA and UK the majorities of the population are embracing and accepting it by choice?

    The answer to the above mentioned and other questions related to the Neo Liberal economy system is always one and the same and that is a big NOOO. Neo Liberal is the worst economic and political system ever happened against humanity in human history since slavery in Africa and the annihilation of the natives in the Americans and Australia. Even if it is said that “Neo Liberalism is worse than slavery and colonialism in combined, there couldn’t be any objection or mistaken about it.

    Because slavery and colonialism was seen as an enemy, illegal and crime whenever it started against any nation and society. But Neo Liberalism is using different kinds of criminal tactics and methods in order to make the nations and societies accepting it in the way sounding as if it is by choice in order to make their activities in the country as legal and right activities despite they are using lots of pressures, lies and spreading fears to make the weak and ignorant to accept it with huge consequences against the nation and citizen futures.

    Even some of the so called leaders do know, it is not working for their countries and societies. But they are accepting what the neo Liberals are telling them because of they are dumb, brainwashed, dirty with corruption don’t care about their country and society but themselves allying with foreign enemies that are seeing and treating them less than human.

    The Neo Liberal warriors and solders are preaching about it with countless lies, misinformation and fiction stories about as if the foreign creation and badly working in own country against own society neo Liberalism is the best solution for Ethiopia instead of the country is enjoying for decades her own systems that are created and running by herself in the ways they are working nicely and hugely benefiting the mass while recording the leading economic growth rates among the few nations in the world.

    Robert Looney who is a neo Liberal economist from California is spreading lies and propaganda stories about Ethiopia; the country he has nothing to do with and how the imported criminal system like neo Liberal from USA and UK is good for the country. Instead of telling about California has built more than 65 huge prison complexes in the past 25 years while only one school which is one of the neo Liberal results, he is talking lies and spreading fears about the society he doesn’t belong to and care thinking Ethiopians are weak and ignorant would hear him in a way they would accept his shit criminal Neo Liberal system against them. He is a neo Liberal so called Economist wishing the world to accept it because it is his way and the rest must lose their ways including in their own country giving everything for his wish and desire.

    The numbers of prisoners in USA are above 3 million and the vast majorities are blacks and Latinos. USA and UK are the leading nations in the world with the prison population. The Prison system in USA and UK are part of the neo Liberal economic system owned privately by profit hungry corporate criminals. Homelessness, crimes, desperation, divisions among the societies, huge debt and so on are huge and sky rocketing in these countries.

    If the Neo Liberal economy based on privatization without any government involvement in order to guarantee the laws and orders environment in the economic games is the best one, why is the mass in USA and UK are suffering from many issues including from the above mentioned causes and situations? Leaving the nation economy to make it working the market the way how it works under the neo Liberal policy in USA and UK is the worst thing any nation has to do against the nation itself.
    Imagine if USA doesn’t have Dollar, EU Euro and UK Pound, would they survived the 2007 worse economic policy caused by the neo Liberals where banks and the likes have the cause massively and open committed an all out theft against the citizens legally in the name of market economy. even with the hard currencies they are having despite their money is the same as the rest of other currencies which are made of cheap paper and produced like toilet papers, they are still suffering from that economic crisis because of market economy without regulation and protection the consumers that are seen as ignorant and worthless animals living to consume for the neo Liberals benefits.

    What makes laughable is the neo Liberal propaganda tools such as academics, scholars, politicians and of course the evil western medias and criminal journalists where the vast majorities are Jews from USA, UK, France and so on are trying to spread fears, warnings and so on to make us accepting the imported criminal neo liberal system despite we don’t know it because of its is not our creation and also we know it is not going work for us but will cause great damages.

    If the USA and UK type of economic injustice and social isolation and discrimination is happening in Ethiopia, no one would feel happy about. Because there is the deep feeling of equal citizenship rights, humanity, respect, related to one another, relaying on one another and most importantly there is always fully acceptance and equality by nature among the citizens.

    In Ethiopia there is no deep hate, disrespecting, hurting and all the things against the citizens one another the way we are witnessing in USA and UK among the society based on race. That is why it is impossible to implement in Ethiopia anything has to do with the USA and UK types of neo Liberal economic system and policy that is making 99% of the population hugely suffer for the 1% benefit. This 1% doesn’t care about the 99% of the population because of reasons including race and class differences and so on.

    The day Ethiopia loses her way from the current economic policy she is having and enjoying with full understanding and total control, it will be the begging of the day Ethiopia will lose herself and the citizens will be sentenced in to the an endless misery and hell where the neo Liberal owners that are mostly Jews from USA, UK and Europe will get feeling of having in their hand as private property everything in the country and the natives have to be like herd of consuming animals and slave workers to benefit them.

    When it happens it will get worse than what was during slavery and colonization in combined. Because slavery and colonialism were, are and always will be illegal, wrong and crimes. And the fight against them will not stop. But accepting the neo Liberalism policy and system by choice is like legally handing over the nation including the citizens as private property God knows for how long and how bad is going to be the damages in the long run.

    No, No and No forever the Neo Liberal economic policy in Ethiopia in any form and in any economic sector. Ethiopians must own Ethiopia and her citizens always in order to have them for their own rights and benefit as others are doing in their countries. What they are looking is having their country only for their own benefit while trying to get others’ nations and consumers for their benefit, too.

    Let them go to hell. 21-cenyury is no one’s century but humanity based on respect and equality. 21-century is started its way from the east in China where the sun is rising and coming towards the west where Ethiopia is the gate way in to the African continent. Money is everywhere in the 21-century. Knowledge is advanced and everywhere these days. Willingness to work together and benefit together are from the east and other places Like Germany, Not in USA and UK where the few are controlling the economy and mass consumers as herd of animals and causing countless problems all over the so called third world nations for the same reason.

    No one is fool in today’s Ethiopia that is willingly handing over its economy in to the foreign hands and losing itself forever this way because of accepting the neo Liberal system by choice while it is clear to see how evil, merciless, racist and dangerous it is in USA and UK against the mass.

    Never ever trust them for anything when they are telling you about how Neo Liberal system is benefiting and also never accept their ideas through the brainwashing theory preaching none stop propaganda but you must be sure always about by yourself. It doesn’t matter he/she, a neo Liberal economist, the Neo Liberal propaganda mass destruction media so called journalists, investor, capitalist or whatever are talking, dirty painting or whatever are doing about the Ethiopian personal situation acting as if they do care about us and know the solution for our weaknesses and problems, never ever trust or accept them even you hear, read or watch them in order to know their position towards us and keep them in check.

    They are doing everything possible or trying the impossible to make us lose our ways in our own country to distance from our country and handing up our hands in order our country becomes in foreign hands through the neo Liberalism policy in the name of privatization that is happening itself in the name of Globalization. They are feeling very hungry looking to get all financial sectors and all lucrative sectors in order to loot the nation in the name of delivering services without creating the real values improving the economy through production. They are looking to get service sectors such as banks, telecom, and all none production sectors through privatization knowing these are sectors they are good at looting the consumers and benefiting hugely without doing any real job but through manipulation, lies and criminal activities as their banks are doing. There are huge differences between them and other nations like china that are engaging with production and infrastructure which is the real economy.

    But the Neo Liberals are waiting till the real economies are ready for harvest and to get them in the name of privatization. But we will never allow them as we didn’t allow anyone to colonize our beloved Ethiopia which is by nature higher than any African nations containing 73% of the continent highlands.

    It is expected that they will continue spreading the Leo Liberal terrorism war through the Economic Propaganda with full of lies, misinformation and distorting facts undermining our working systems and discouraging our ways in our own country with goal to make us accepting their economic policy in order to take our country as private property through privatization and Globalization that are the fundamental rights the Neo Liberals are using as best ingredients.

    However, it would be better for them if they know the ancient old true nature of Ethiopians for real when it comes to their country and people. They have to accept our ways in our country if they want good relations with us in the things and situations making both of us agree on, not only in Ethiopia but in their country too. If they are demanding others to do something for them in their country, they also must be ready and accepting others are also getting treatments and benefits in their country in return. The one sided old era slave and master types of relationship between nations and citizens is already gone. This must be clear for them sooner rather than later for their own sake.

      Tesfa yelleh beshitegna shimagle EPRP, This is healthy criticizm, but you want to capitalize it hoping that this will create division between the government. This writer might be true or not, it depends how people will take it. The writer has a right to criticize BEN. But BEN is a hero for most Ethiopians who are I on the side of Ethiopian development. I agree with the writer, on the last one, for criticizing the communication minister for telling the Media the fact. The communication minister had the right to make sure the origin of the news and authentication of the news. The American government always does verification on the news which is coming from the Terrorist. The communication minister has to make sure that the news were true or not are those people Ethiopians or not. What is wrong with that. Because of the suspicion we found out the 3 Eritreans were among the 30 killed. We found out that the person who was called Jemal his name is Efrem. These people didn’t go through legal way. As a legit government the government has to identify their identity through the embassy or their immediate families. That thee deference between the responsible government and irresponsible government. What did your G7 mentor say about the three Eritreans? Ermi the Eritrean will tell us. So shut the Hell up.

You are talking about a falling tree strength. What a mess.TPLF and its member resemble NAZI Hitler ,before the fall of Berlin to the alien forces at the end of second world war, Hitler was preaching about NAZI strength. Now you Beza(MAMO KILO) do the same thing. What a coincident to have NAZI(TPLF) on an African soil.

    Woyane started war against its own? This is so shameful that you just realized there is only one type of journalism, that is limatawi journalism, practiced by woyanes mouthpieces. Limatawi journalism involves fabricating bogus terrorism charges against anyone with above 5th grade education, fabricating fake limatawi news like vast natural gas discovery, denying the death of meles seytanawi and so on.

    Now the reason you are waging war on one of your own is either he is getting paid more than you by al amour and dedebit Isis or you couldn’t control him as he is holding Canadian passport. Which one is it? I wish you finish each other and give Ethiopia peace.

    Peace to all but woyanes!

    Rarely do I read article written by Ben. It is not because I do not value what he writes. If I get opportunity, I read any issue relating to Ethiopia whether the writer and I share the same political philosophy or not. The first time Ben gets my attention was when he defended the Oromo’s building a statue. I disagreed with his reasoning. In fact, I remember I wrote a feedback on this same website. I did not say Ben is a yellow journalist. I just simply said I disagree with his reasoning. I assume reasonably the writer now criticizing Ben was cheerleading him then. Now, Ben has written what the writer of this article did not like, well, Ben is, according to the writer, a yellow journalist. The problem is not with ben this time. It is with the writer of the above article. He does not like to see in print anything he does not like. Anything he does not like is called, you guessed it, yellow journalism.

    He might got the kind of Journalism education somewhere in Canada or elsewhere from isolated or unknown journalism schools. Journalism education in abroad particularly in the USA, UK, Canada, France and so on where the Neo Liberal journalism education institutions are running by far against the true, known and working journalism ethics and principles is producing journalists that are doing the journalism works based on lies, misinformation, distorting facts, fictonal stories and generally the ways they are doing including against Ethiopia for decades which is intentionally damaging the country image, undermining the citizens and their leaders policies that are working for the people benefits but not for the neo Liberals that are looking to own and control the world as if it is their private property.

    Mr. Biniyam could be at war within himself or suffering from confusion because of his journalism education (if he had any) and the direct experiences he has been witnessed how journalism works in abroad i. e Canada. He must know he is in Ethiopia, not in Canada despite in Canada he would never ever be able to get any job as journalism and behave the way he is in Ethiopia. He thinks he is all that and have power to behave the way as he is doing.

    The latest trash talk I have heard from him was that he was tried to criticize the AA police members that were confronting the hooligans, wahhabis and Semayawi dirty trash elements when they were causing unacceptable and unbelievable chaos during the time the nation was mourning coming out in mass with more than 100.000 in demonstration. How is possible any one that is acting as if he is a real Ethiopian and looking always the best for Ethiopia is even thinking about let alone criticizing the Addis Ababa police forces because of they managed to stop the criminals that were in the mission to affect the nation and manage always keeping laws and orders in the country including during the Night when Biniam is always sleeping safely, comfortably and happily?

    You see, being a journalist because of attending a journalism school and passing the examines with very law marks is the first and easiest part many of us can do it. But being a competent journalist a something different, very challenging and it all about. To be that way, someone needs to be naturally fit into it and smart and brave to improve through hard work, experience and good judgments.

    Biniam has none of it. I’m Glad finally the people are started to talk about. He is trying to be a journalist. But he cannot become one. Wanting is something while be able to become is another very important one.

    He must stop discrediting or talking negatively and bad about Ethiopians that are trying their bests to improve themselves and the nation at large through continues efforts and achievements by own efforts. The Addis Ababa police force deserve unreserved respect, understanding and admiration for doing their jobs perfectly, not criticizing by individuals like Biniam who is thinking he is a journalist but really not.

      I think you must be one hard headed diaspora who is wasting his time in demonstration on the doors of white house and state department, consuming the Time of the officials in the office. You never liked him before, you don’t like him now and you will never in the future. I know him and his love for the country is boundless.

      Specially,he will never hesitate to act when, the Eritrean regime try to attack Ethiopia. Please don’t spill your crocodile tears because no one hates BEN. If the guy who is writing this letter is from EPRDF which I doubt, must be careful. I know EPRDF is not drifted by emotions, it’s driven by passion, so they will not take drastic action driven by the letter.

      I have full confidence that the person who wrote this doesn’t represent the brave and concerned, dedicated 6,000,000 their members. So let’s take this opportunity to express our feelings. EPRDF is a blessing in disguise for all Ethiopians. I want to advice BEN also not to get into the trap of the toxic diaspora. You must stand firm on the ground. I think you are getting so slow in addressing the desturbance of Addis by Islamawi party members.

        If individuals like you are not around, this blog would be declared clean and clear and that would be beyond realities. Few ignorant like you being among the well educated, organized, mannered and civilized society are part of the normal nature of the human society. So, you being among us is not more than representing the negative, bad and wrong sides of the human society natures.

        Before opening quickly and widely your dirty mouth after reading the first sentence or phrase, you need to read all first, understand, think and then respond if you get some brain that is working rightfully and correctly.

        Biniam is lately becoming like a hardworking person that is destroying or making worthless his jobs by putting on or adding something that affects the who issues badly. Exposing and blaming the responsible is the things he is doing well. Yet, the same times he is also accusing those trying to stop those criminals he is accusing, exposing and blaming them
        This is how looks like someone suffering from confusion caused by lack of knowledge, experience and who he is a person.

        What is his justification for blaming the Addis Ababa police members taking measures against the wahhabis and semayaiw dirty members that were in the mission to cause troubles during the demonstration against the ISIS? Does he think independent journalism works this way? If he wants to clean the house, he must clean it wiping out all dirt and trashes. What he is doing is that he is accusing and blaming the dirt and trash making the house dirty and stinky while the same times accusing and blaming those cleaning the dirty and trashes.

        On one side he is pro EPRDF while on the other hand he is blaming all 6 million its members for some reasons he thinks about and caused by the few. Who is he after all? Ethiopia has 90 million and he is one of them. What is making differences is the job we do, the behavior we have, the value we are creating and the benefit we are delivering, not doing a kind of journalism activities by someone looks like suffering from confusion instead of being clear and open about and stick always with it.

        Accusing the police forces is something no one expects from him, but it did happen on his own video. There is no balanced covering the stories or independent journalism by standing for the terrorists and criminals while accusing and blaming those taking measures to confront and stop these terrorists and criminals.

    Ben,is my hero,

    When supporting TPLF was not a fashion …Ben was the first one openly supporting TPLF .when a time the extremist amhara outcasts u….he stand up and counted.

    Now I don’t mind one of TPLF supporter criticism Ben, Ben is not a God..he should be criticised if he make.

    About criticism ….I don’t have time to read all the article beside I am very slow reader..amhahic writing is. Very difficult to understand the meaning it go around the Bush…anyhow I scan it based on that here is my take.

    The wiriter think Ben doesn’t know his place….master and slave

    Ben represent 90millions people voice he have more power then u think because PMHMD is our servant we the people hired to the job and Ben is a watch dog…
    Telling our PM what the people face daily is not disrespect..
    Telling our PM why night club (sex industry )all the light but the not the public is not disrespect

    Part II next time

    Thank you Awramba Times for posting this article. It is timely. I thought Ben’s reporting was out of the line. Besides, since the EPRDF is democratic and it is the only organization that should govern Ethiopia for the foreseen future (with double digit growth), Ben should not say anything against it .

    Thanks Awramba!

    • ilula lemaa says:

      TPLF cadres spoke to make BEN the next target. You used ben for years to cover TPLF dirty job now all TPLF(WOYANE) cadre are voting on AWRAMBA TIMES which is a mouth piece of TPLF to condemn him. BEN is one of you and by removing him nothing will be changing. TPLF will remain as a fascist party and killing machine at it is.

      Gashaw, I can’t say it in better way. This individual might be one of the so called journalists who have hate against Ben. Ben Kegna is the best journalist who smashed thee BBC investigative report. EPRDF, is not like DERG killing it’s people by this kind of smear campaign.

    • Beza says:

      Muleta, what kind of hate do you have against Ben. Would you mention one thing he did wrong? I don’t think you have one unless you have hate for the regime. I don’t expect u to like his comments if you are Dimtsachin Yizega.

      • muleta says:

        come on base of bez….bezbiz….you defending Emama Dimblo..?…listen to his voice…he always speak like arogit….people sacrificed there dear life to get where we are ,FOR HIM TO SPEAK FREELY ..Democracy is a process ,every now often people make mistakes and learn from it…but for him to accuse the whole system as a failure tantamount as a terrorist …its a crime against the state…they should put him in jail…like the other terror masterminds..he is no good

  13. D says:

    It’s seems to me, someone (possibly from communication minster) is treated by Ben’s recent criticism. If you do your job right, you shouldn’t worry…..don’t try suppress his opinion. Ben, tell it like it is. You report, we judge.

      Amente, you see you are falling in their trap. Those ignorant people, what they need is confusing others. Why they/communication office/ need to write about him in this manner while they can ask him face to face? To know their intent you can listen to their ESAT.

      They are always saying this minister say about the other one so he is right and the other day they will say another thing about the others. EPRDF is too smart not to fall in their trap. So don’t fall in their trap.

      Ato Benyam just it is a good lesson for U. I think U are provoked with the article. But Ato Mesay’s comment is very logical and reasonable . U considered yourself as knowledgeable and vibrant journalist but practically U are not. Unless U adjust urself, U are in the wrong truck. U made a serious mistake time and again but no one comments u. As the writer said, if I were U, I boycott this business and go to the profession i know very well.
