    As the two Masters degrees holder in Economics and leadership first lady Roman Tesfaye said “the Adharis Neo-Liberals are the ones that are spreading rumors that makes investors loose confidence in Ethiopian government’s business development practices.”

    Nomatter who said what the shameful fact about the country called Ethiopia my home base for more than a decade is that the country keeps loosing high amount of money due to lack of Pricing assessment system which must be implemented for export goods from Ethiopia because that is how most money is stolen from Ethiopia. Almost $2 trillion has left Africa illicitly since 1970, thwarting poverty reduction and economic growth. A new research conducted by the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, has indicated that the amount of Ethiopia’s illicit capital flight in the last four decades amounted to nearly 25 billion USD.
    The research, which covers the period between 1970 and 2010, shows that 33 Sub-Saharan African countries including Ethiopia have lost over 810 billion USD that exceeds the amount they received in official development aid from donors. In the same period, the amount lost in illicit capital flight also dwarfed the region’s inflow of foreign direct investment, which amounted only to 305 billion USD.
    The researchers underlined that there is an urgent need to stem illicit capital flight and make concerted efforts to repatriate of stolen assets “as a part of the broader goals of scaling up development financing, combating corruption, and improving transparency in the global financial system.”
    The report, Capital Flight from Sub-Saharan African Countries: Updated Estimates, 1970 – 2010, was conducted by economists at the Political Economy Research Institute, which is based at University of Massachusetts.
    Oil exporter Nigeria tops the list with 311.4 billion wasted in capital flight. Among the non-oil export countries, Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in Sub-Saharan Africa with huge amount of capital flight leaving the country unaccounted for.
    A separate report released last year by the International Financial Integrity has put the amount of illicit capital outflow to well over 11 billion in the last decade.
    .
    Ethiopia loses more than 25 billion dollars in capital flight in the last two decades Ethiopia loses more than 5 billion dollars in capital flight each year since 2010. .

    Great disscusion very open never seen officials and researchers discussing honestly. But have observed defensiveness in Mequria, debretsion and the revenue minster that worries me hopefully they will come to their sense or leave

  8. Shiromeda says:

    I admired the prime minister tenacity and he is now in the right direction to bring out the country from corruption mess . I hope he will have to revise his cabinet appointees to fulfill the good work that he want to implement. I was ashamed by a few ministers expression of their arrogance and defiance on the study plan.

    The people of Ethiopia know tplf for the last 24 years, the only solution is by replacing tplf with true Ethiopian poletical party.

    PM Hailemariam Desalegn said, “Free media is very essential for the democratic process and… development”

    So they say!!!

    ተባለ እንዴ!!!

    Trust no woyanes/TPLF and their lovers. The use of phrases like, “we are not perfect”, “journalists are not real”, “we believe we’re on the right track” and all that jazz is nothing, but a pack of lies to deceive freedom-loving Ethiopians and the so-called “international community”.

    If PM Hailemariam Desalegn is true to what he said, let him first release all those who languish in prisons, because they disagreed with his government policy, politics, economy etc, etc. Also, admit massive mistakes have been made in the past/present by the regime and show some kind of transparency and accountability as soon as possible. Allow Ethiopians to exercise their fundamental right to assemble, protest, and opposition parties function without fear and threats of all kinds and allow people ask for a change in their lives in a peaceful manner.

    The BBC news on PM-HMD ready to “open to criticism’ can be equated to: Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me’. Ethiopians are not ready for any kind of lies and cheating anymore.

  12. Mario says:

    Has anyone out there read or heard woyanes or woyane-lovers criticizing Hailemariam Desalegn for not being open or resistant to criticism?

    Not one I know of. He is their man and woyanes criticizing woyanes or woyane-lovers or vice versa is unheard of.

    Openness and criticism actually begin from self. So, the “openness to criticism” Hailemariam Desalegn was/is talking about is an absolute horse or bullshit.

    Sorry about my use of vulgar words. I am actually trashing his message and not him personally. Because, I know for sure the use of such words does not help for any debate/discussion.
