    “ለሌሎች ዜጎች የተሰጠ ይቅርታ ለእኔ ባለቤት ጋዜጠኛ ውብሸት ለምን ይከለከላል እያልኩ ሁሌም እብሰለሰላለሁ” የጋዜጠኛ ውብሸት ታዬ ባለቤት ወ/ሮ ብርሃኔ ተስፋዬ

    November 26, 2015 – ቃለ ምልልስ
    በሰኔ 2003 ዓ.ም በእነ ኤሊያስ ክፍሌ መዝገብ በሽብር ወንጀል ተጠርጥረው አቶ ኤሊያስ ክፍሌ፣ ወ/ሮ ሂሩት ክፍሌ፣ አቶ ዘሪሁን ገ/እግዚዓብሔር፣ ጋዜጠኛ ውብሸት ታዬ እና ጋዜጠኛ ርዕዮት ዓለሙ መከሰሳቸው ይታወሳል። ከዚህ የፍርድ ሂደት ጋር በተያያዘ አስራ አራት ዓመት በከፍተኛው ፍርድ ቤት የተወሰነባቸው መሆኑ ይታወቃል። … በዚህ መዝገብ ጋዜጠኛ ውብሸት ታዬ ይግባኝ የመጠየቅ መብቱን ሳይጠቀም የተሰጠው ፍርድ እንደፀና በእስር ቤት ይገኛል። ውብሸት በጊዜው በአገር ሽማግሌዎች በኩል ይግባኝ ከምትጠይቅ የተወሰነብህን ውሳኔ ተቀብለህ መንግስትን ይቅርታ መጠየቁ ይሻላል የሚል ምክር መለገሱን ያነሳል። የተሰጠውን ምክር በመቀበል፣ ለመንግስት በፍትህ ሚኒስቴር በኩል የይቅርታ ደብዳቤ ቢያስገባም፣ ጥያቄው ተቀባይነት አላገኘም። የይቅርታ ደብዳቤውን ምላሽ እየጠበቀ ባለበት ወቅትም መጠየቂያው ጊዜ መቃጠሉን ጉዳዩን የተከታተሉ ወገኖች አስታውሰዋል።

    በአገር ቤት የሚታተሜው ሰንደቅ ከጋዜጠኛ ውብሸት ታዬ ባለቤት ወ/ሮ ብርሃኔ ተስፋዬ ጋር ቃለ ምልልስ አድርጓል። ይህ ጠቃሚ እና ወቅታዊ መረጃ በመሆኑ በኢ.ኤም.ኤፍ በኩል ለህትመት አብቅተነዋል።

    ሰንደቅ፡- አሁን አንቺና ልጅሽ ያላችሁበት ሁኔታ እንዴት ነው?

    ብርሃኔ፡- ውብሸት ከታሰረ አራት ዓመት ሆኖታል። እንደአባወራ እንደቤት አስተዳዳሪ እኔ ልጄ ከተለየነውም አራት አመት ሆነን። በተለይ ልጄ ውብሸት ሲታሰር የሁለት ዓመት ልጅ ስለነበረ ከአባት የሚያገኘውን ድጋፍና ፍቅር ለማግኘት አልታደለም። እንደማንኛውም አባት ትምህርት ቤት እንዲወስደው፣ እንዲያመጣው ይፈልጋል። አባት ልጅ እጅ ለእጅ ተያይዘው በትምህርት ቤት መግቢያና መውጫ ሰዓት ሲመለከት በአትኩሮት ነው። አንዳንዴ ከእኔን እጅ እጁን አስለቅቆ ይፈዛል እየተጠማዘዘ አባትና ልጅ አብረው ከት/ቤት ሲወጡ ሲገቡ ያያል። እንደትልቅ ሰው የውስጥ ስሜቱን አውጥቶ ማስረዳት ቢያቅተውም ምን እያሰላሰለ እንደሆነ ግን ይገባሃል። አባቴ ቢኖር እኔንም ወደ ት/ቤት ይወስደኛል፣ ያመጣኛል እያለ እንደሆነ ትረዳለህ። በተለይ እኔ ያጣውንም ነገር ስለምረዳው ምንም ማድረግ ባለመቻሌ ደግሞ ይከፋኛል።

    ሰንደቅ፡- ውብሸት ጋር ያለው ስሜትስ ምን ይመስላል? በቅርብ ካየሽው ምን ያህል ጊዜ ሆነሽ?ብርሃኔ ተስፋዬ የጋዜጠኛ ውብሸት ባለቤት

    ብርሃኔ፡- ውብሸት ያለው ስሜት ጠንካራ ቢሆንም ያሳዝንሃል። ቤተሰቦቹ እንዳይጎበኙት በጣም በእድሜ የገፉ ናቸው። የሚኖሩበት አካባቢ ከአዲስ አበባ በጣም ብዙ ኪሎ ሜትሮች ይርቃል። ከታሰረ ጀምሮ አይተውት አያውቁም። አባትየው ውብሸት በእስር ቤት ውስጥ እያለ ሳያዩት ነው ያረፉት። እናቱም በእድሜ የገፉ በመሆናቸው ሄደው ሊጠይቁት አልቻሉም። ይህን ሁሉ ችሎ፣ ልጁ መናፈቅ፣ ስለልጁ ማሰብ ሌላው ፈተናው ነው። አንድአባወራ በቤቱ ሳይኖር የሚያጎለውን ስለሚረዳ ምን እንደጎደለብንም ሰለሚያውቅ፣ እኔ እና ልጄ እንዴት ብለን ኑሮን እንደምንገፋ ሲያስብ በጣም ይጨነቃል።

    ሰንደቅ፡- ከዚህ በፊት ለፍትህ ሚኒስቴር የይቅርታ ደብዳቤ ማቅረቡ ይታወሳል። ይህ ጉዳይ ምን ደረጃ ላይ ይገኛል?

    ብርሃኔ፡- ለፍትህ ሚኒስቴር ያቀረበው የይቅርታ ደብዳቤው ተቀባይነት አላገኘም የሚል ድፍን የሆነ ምላሽ ተሰጥቶት ነበር። በፕሮፌሰር ኤፍሬም ይስሃቅ እና በአትሌት ሃይሌ ገ/ስላሴ ለሚመራው የሀገር ሽማግሌዎች ጥምረት ያስገባው የይቅርታ ጥያቄ ገና በሂደት ላይ ያለ ጉዳይ ነው።

    ሰንደቅ፡- በይቅርታው ሂደት ላይ ያለሽ መረዳት እንዴት ነው?

    ብርሃኔ፡- በመጀመሪያ ይቅርታ የሚጠይቅ ሰው የተሰጠው ፍርድ ምንም ይሁን ምንም ውሳኔውን በሕግ የበላይነት የተቀበለ ነው። በፍርድ ቤት የተሰጠውን ውሳኔ ተቀብሎ፣ መንግስትን ነው ይቅርታ የጠየቀው። መንግስት ታራሚዎች ይቅርታ ሲጠይቁ ሆደ ሰፊ መሆን አለበት። ሰው የሚታሰረው ለቅጣት ሳይሆን ሰርቷል ከተባለው ጥፋት እንዲማር ነው። ስለዚህም ይቅርታ ይደረግልኝ ብሎ መንግስትን መጠየቅ፣ ጠያቂው ለመማር ዝግጁ ነው ማለት ነው። ውብሸትም ሰርቷል ተብሎ ከተነገረው ስህተት እማራለሁ ብሎ ይቅርታ ከጠየቀ መንግስት የይቅርታ ደብዳቤውን ለምን ሊቀበለው እንዳልፈለገ ለእኔ ግልጽ አይደለም።

    በተለይ ከሽብር ጋር የተያያዙ ውሳኔዎች ይቅርታ አይሰጣቸውም የሚል ነገር ከተለያዩ ቦታዎች ሰምቻለሁ። መቼም መገናኛ ብዙሃን ለሚከታተል ሰው በሽብር የተወነጀሉም ሆነ በሽብር ፍርድ ተሰጥቷቸው ታስረው የነበሩ ታራሚዎች በአደባባይ ይቅርታ ተደርጓላቸው ከማረሚያ ቤት ሲወጡ እኔም ሌላውም ሕዝብ ሰምተናል፣ አይተናል። ለሌሎች ዜጎች የተሰጠ ይቅርታ ለእኔ ባለቤት ጋዜጠኛ ውብሸት ለምን ይከለከላል እያልኩ ሁሌም እብሰለሰላለሁ።

    መቼም መንግስት ለሁሉም ቤተሰብ እኩል ነው ብዬ አምናለሁ። ሆኖም ለእኔ እና ለልጄ መንግስት የይቅርታ እጁን ለምን እንደነፈገን ግን አይገባንም። ውብሸትስ ምን የተለየ ሰራ ሰርቷል? የይቅርታ ጥያቄው ከቀረበ ከሁለት ዓመት በላይ ጊዜ ወስዷል፣ ሌሎች በተመሳሳይ ክስ የፍርድ ውሳኔ አግኝተው፣ ይቅርታ የተሰጣቸው ጊዜን ስትመለከተው እጅግ ፈጣን ነው። ለምን ይቅርታ በፍጥነት አገኙ ለማለት ፈልጌ ሳይሆን፣ በአንድ ስርዓት ውስጥ ሁለት አሰራር ስለሆነብኝ ነው።

    ሰንደቅ፡- በሽማግሌዎቹ በኩል ስለየተደረጉ ጥረቶች የምታውቂው ነገር አለ?

    ብርሃኔ፡- ከእነሱ በኩል ጠቅላይ ሚኒስትር ኃይለማርያም ደሳለኝን ለማነጋገር ቀጠሮ እየጠበቁ መሆናቸውን አውቃለሁ። በቅርብ ጊዜም ጠቅላይ ሚኒስትሩን ለማነጋገር ያላቸውን ተስፋ ነግረውናል።

    ሰንደቅ፡- ወደግል ሕይወትሽ እንመለስና አራት አመት ብዙ ጊዜ ነው። ከልጅሽ ጋር በምን ገቢ ነው የምትተዳደሩት?

    ብርሃኔ፡- እስከተወሰነ ጊዜ ሁለት ዓለም ዓቀፍ ሽልማቶች ያገኘ በመሆኑ ከሽልማቱ ባገኘነው ገንዘብ ነበር የምንተዳደረው። እንዲሁም አንዳንድ ሰዎች በራሳቸው ተነሳሽነት ያግዙናል። እንዲሁም የሙያ ጓደኞቹ ያግዙናል፣ የእሱንም የጤና ሁኔታዎች ይከታተላሉ። አሁን ላይ ግን ነገሮች ሁሉ ከብደውናል።

    ሰንደቅ፡- መንግስት ምን እንዲያደርግልሽ ነው የምትፈለጊው?

    ብርሃኔ፡- በነበረው የፍርድ ሂደትም ሆነ በተሰጠው ውሳኔ ላይ ምንም ማለት አልፈልግም። ባቀረበው የይቅርታ ደብዳቤ ላይ እንዳሰፈረው፣ ቤተሰቡን ለማስተዳደር እና ልጁን ለማስተማርና ጥሩ ዜጋ ለማድረግ መንግስት በይቅርታ እንዲፈታው ጠይቋል። እኔም በበኩሌ ባለቤቴ ጋዜጠኛ ውብሸትን መንግስት በይቅርታ እንዲፈታውና ልጄም ወደተረጋጋ ስነልቦና እንዲመለስ፣ ቤተሰባችንም ወደነበረበት የተረጋጋ ሕይወት እንድንመለስ እጠይቃለሁ።

    Although this is one of the main jobs the Ethiopian medias and journalists have to do, Dewit and others that are part of the group deserve appreciation because of it is happening for the First time which is too little and too late.

    As journalists and Medias have the responsibilities and rights to serve the nation, they must totally control and own the nation Medias jobs reaching all over the country. The 21-century society and nations like Ethiopia don’t need any foreign media and journalist mainly the known bad ones from the west but using effectively and widely own Medias and journalists working together with useful and friendly nations Medias and journalists. Tough time needs tough and decisive leaders and well intended quick actions mobilizing the nation while eliminating those causing troubles like some officials and criminals are trying to benefit from.

    The drought is bad but not very bad. It can be easily manageable by having the best leadership skills using own resources and potentials including actively participating the victims digging wells knowing Ethiopian has huge ground water reserve, preparing the farmland for next season, keeping safe from transmitting diseases including being clean washing bodies and cloth.

    Good job Dawit. This is the way how others are doing before coming in our country to do our media jobs based on their own…. Thinking we are lazy, incompetent, ignorant, weak and stupid despite we have our Medias and journalists the same as they do.

    “for December 1 -2015….Prof.Berhanu Nega arrives in Brussels to testify at the European Parliament………about”Famine and Drought in Ethiopia……..”

    For how many times are we talking about particularly since the second war officially started deep in the country by BBC few weeks ago about their main intention and goal to achieve in the name of aid using the drought as God given opportunity and best advantage for them?

    When they see you are in difficulties, they are the first to act and be there not to help but using the situation as best opportunity to attack and influence pretending tehy are helping while working for their agenda and plan to achieve by being against the desperate and weak unable to defend itself. However, they are very much mistaken this time in Ethiopia. Ethiopia this time is million times better and stronger than she was during Adwa. Ethiopia today is many times stronger and organized than what she was in the 1930s. Even Ethiopia today is not the same as she was yesterday but the better one. We are improving everyday knowing our time is a head waiting to be materialized by our determination, bravery, hard work and being victorious against the enemies we know who they are and how they are attacking and causing troubles. Back then Italy was an enemy. But today is one of the best friends.

    This is not the EU intention or work but 100% UK and USA. It is among the others the CIA and MI6 job thinking they can achieve what they are busy with for years this time using the drought in 2015 as they did in 1984/85.

    Who was present and actively all over Ethiopia in the name of drought in 1984? Not Germans, Italians, native French and so on but the English, USA and Canada(Jews/Zionists) working together for their goals and that was eliminating the government as the Secret deal document revealed done by the racist and evil Thatcher in 1985.

    This time also they are here camouflaging behind EU. The Jews/Zionists and English establishments that are controlling USA, UK, France and so on are savagely looking to get the Ethiopian economy and consumers in the name of privatization, investment and Globalization blood thirstily focusing on the banks, telecom, Insurance and other sectors where the money is in order to loot the nation without delivering any benefit in return engaging only so called service sectors.

    We have seen days ago another Jews organization called CPJ rewarding so called bloggers that are the little head backward brainwashed and trained animals by them to do the dirty jobs against their country for the Zionists agenda in our country. As long as the US and UK embassies behavior and activities are not limited based on the embassy jobs and activities, be sure, they are there to affect us badly. What are the Ethiopian foreign ministry, interior ministry and securities doing about it?

    The so called aid agencies, peace core, NGO, charities and whatever names they are having is how they are playing the games to be there and get free accesses as they wish. Don’t forget, 40% UK spy agent members are females. Do you think they are coming in the country telling they are spy doing their government agenda and plan in our country as Thatcher had? No. They are coming associating with the so called agencies, organizations and so on to do the jobs they are doing secretly against our society.

    When we are weak, ignorant, poor, dependent, divided and in troubles including with reasons caused by nature as it is going on this time, they are feeling it is the best time to attack and best opportunity to achieve their goals and that are too bad against us and our country.

    Look the US and UK embassies activities. Are they really doing the embassy jobs or are they getting too busy for their main goals that are secret in our country operating peacefully? You know who rules the US and UK embassies in our country being on the top. They are the same people from both countries done intentionally to make them working together for the same goal both are looking to achieve.

    However, this is not 1984, 1994 or 2004 but 2015 and soon 2016. Any bad move they are making against our country is giving us determinations decisively to stand against them while strengthening and widening our relations with useful, trustworthy, respectful, genuine, hard working and honest nations like the Great China, Russia, Japan, Korea and the rest. UK and USA need to know better how things are for real right now not only in Ethiopia but also the whole world. Ethiopia has the right to have her own political direction and economic policies and making any relationship with any nation based on her benefits in the short and mainly long term benefits including with China.

    As some from USA corrupted political systems are often and openly saying, “our biggest fret and long term challenge is china, not Russia”. But that was before the great Russia surprised the world and makes their mouth shut forever with the highest military power she is acquire and capable with while actively and victoriously defending Syria from the terrorists created by them. Chinese and Russians are good friends and allies will be always there mainly during bad times to defend and die for as Russia is doing for Syria. There is no doubt China will stand always with her best friend which is Ethiopia particularly during bad times such as caused by bad human(always by the west-USA and UK) or nature as it is going on right now.

    This is becoming clear they are busy with creating and organizing terrorists against Ethiopia as they did against the ME. Birhanu is a terrorist. However, they gave him not only shelter and all sorts of supports but also fake title called him professor to make him important rewarding before days they send him to the terrorism action from the base in Eritrea. However, Birhanu being as a professor makes him the first ever terrorist with so called professor title he got from USA for free with exchange they are free to use him for their agenda and plan against our country as they did in many other nations in order to turn them the ways they did to Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Ukraine and so on.

    How is possible a terrorist like him sheltering in Eritrea and never been in Ethiopia for many years but always looking to cause damages against the nation as a terrorist serving the Zionists/Jews agenda in our country is invited by EU to talk about anything in Ethiopia including the drought? This shows they are already started the war operating openly and we have to defend ourselves openly and decisively started from those in the country including the embassies and those spy agents pretending differently.

    Remember: The Zionists including G. Soros, Herman Cohen and so on are behind all these. USA and UK foreign policies, Medias and economic activities are controlled and run by them.

    Sisi Ismailia statement dated 11/29/2015 that Egypt adopted Airports in secret, a military airport in order to be close to the dam Renaissance and French aircraft using these airports and borders in southern Egypt

    • visitor says:

      Egypt needs the dam more than Ethiopia does for the flow of the adequate amount of water. If not Ethiopians all over the country will use small rivers that are tributaries to the Nile and the Nile will get dry within Ethiopia.

      As far as constructing a military airport or whatever Egypt is doing in her territory is her right as we have ours in our country. Egypt is facing hardships coming in different forms and types including terrorism within, Libya and conflicts with Sudan including North eastern Sudan territories illegally occupied by Egypt since 1994. .

      Egypt and Ethiopia are no longer from different directions but working together for Mutual benefits. They are not enemies but peace makers including in the region. What Egypt wants from Ethiopia is the duration of the feelings of the dam. That is it. And it is easy to agree about.

      If they want anything else, that has to come from her masters that are financing for decades and keeping alive her military.

      Bombing a dam is very easy but will bring her nothing other than the worst ever case scenarios in Egypt’s history. There are lots of reasons and possibilities solving issues peacefully with talks based on mutual benefits. Or else, before Ethiopia does, Egypt will test the results of her actions very badly and for so long.

      Don’t trust or relay on some Egypt’s medias. Some of them are part of the terrorists and Muslim brotherhoods looking Egypt to drag in something bad for their advantage. Did you see the previous parliamentary election? Have you any idea about the turn out? Do you know how many thousands political prisoners are in jail?

      So, sisi is a good man knows how to work with Ethiopia for better strategy and benefit both sides despite the water belongs to us and we are free to do for anything we want as long as it is in our territory.

  7. us for us with us says:

    80% Ethiopians are living in rural eras engaging with framings and pastorates.
    80%= 72 million people.
    8-10 million are currently seeking help because of El Nino.

    That means between 62-64 millions in rural areas are self sufficient. This also means 80-82 million Ethiopians in the country are in the position to give some assistance to their citizens that are affected by the drought.

    Let say:
    The maximum of 10 million people are seeking some assistance.
    This means 1. 5 million quintals wheat, corn… per month is needed which is 15 kg per month per person.
    The people need help the maximum of 10 months from now on. That means the country needs the maximum of 15 million Quintals. This is about 500 million Dollar or 10 billion Birr.
    This also means about 6 dollar per person if we borrow that money from friendly nations that are offering with reasonable interest rate and is not using the deal to score their interest on us. We all know where is the excess amount of money which is in china, Korea, Even Algeria in Africa and so on.

    The Earthquake in Japan cost thousands lives and tens of billions of dollars and the damage is still there. Months ago, Nepal also affected by earthquake which is a natural disaster, and the damage was very huge not only did cost them billions of dollars and lots of human lives but also it destroyed thousands years old Nepal’s national treasures such as very old temples and so on. The drought, storm, snow, earthquake and so on cost hundreds of billions dollars and many lives worldwide every year including in USA, China and India. Therefore, the situation we are witnessing in Ethiopia is nothing but a kind of motivation for the country to eliminate the effect of natural disasters like drought by developing the country mainly the agriculture sector.
    Drought is not bad and dangerous to find the solution than storms, earthquakes, floods or heavy snow that paralyze the nations totally to still stand and costs lots do. Ethiopia is affected only by drought which is easy to find the solution if we are good enough to do our jobs rather than being stupid and still waiting aid from those are using aid to destroy and cause many problems while prolonging the existing ones.

    Ethiopia is currently farming on about 13.5 million hectare of land. If we increase productivity by 2 or more quintal per hectare in the next season, the country can get 30 million quintal extra which is twice we are needed this time to import.

    A nation like Egypt is importing more than 100 million quintals every year. Many nations including Nigeria, North Africa, ME, Europe and so on are importing huge amount of food items including rice, wheat, fruits, meat and so on.

    Therefore; this is not a huge task as it likes/sounds because of bombardments coming from the western known propaganda wars about it. They are just using it as best opportunity and advantage serving their agenda and interest against our society targeting us thinking we are weak unable to see and understand what they are up to. The Ethiopian government, medias (death to the Zionist and English establishment corporate medias and criminal journalists including those from South Africa), scholars and the people must unite, stand up, organize themselves and deal with it by themselves while working together with our best friends and allies like China, Japan, Korea, Russia, German, Italy and the likes to assist us the way we are looking to get and use it in our ways knowing we are the one know our situations.

    This is the time to say good bay to all so called aid agencies, NGOs, Charities, Institutions, criminal journalists from UK and USA they are there for their own agenda and plan against our society including keeping us weak, poor and dependent on them which is the best for them. USA and UK embassies need to stop doing unacceptable and criminal activities against our people in the name of USAID, UKAID and whatever name they are using interfering in our politics and targeting the weak and vulnerable women, girls, youth and so on.

    The Ethiopian government and people together with our friends and best allies can solve any problem Ethiopia is facing including this one. It is a minor task for the country of 90 million and has lots of resources to use for her advantages within few months engaging in framings; planting fruits and vegetables allover the country. Don’t trust or follow what those from USA and UK including in the name of UN and EU are telling you but you know what it is and you are capable of solving by yourself knowing there are plenty good nations around us to deliver the right assistance without affecting us in any form.

    The respond of EPRDF the drought is good but late. When UN warning by prediction last year the regime must get ready enough response on time. But it’s better and better than previous famine disaster.
    Regarding to Egypt. I think Egypt threat is harming back to them. By any means the will build when ever. The flow of the water will be diverted to south instead of North. They have to think thousand times. Libya, Qatar and Israel has no river. They use techinolodgy by spent some money. Egypt should spent half of jet and naval expense this year……

  11. us for us with us says:

    Any nation can face time to time difficulties caused by human or nature. But the worst one to face and handle is the one caused by human mainly within related to the government and citizens. If a nation has good leaders and responsible society , she has very limited chances facing human made problems and always has capacities to solve any natural causes with own efforts.

    Since recently, we have seen many natural disasters in many nations but all of them solved their problems by own capacities using own people without even the rest of the world heard about.

    Look at Greek. Greek is an ancient nation deserves respects. But because of her leaders’ bad judgments in the economy and spending including during the 2004 Olympic Games, the country has landed on the worst economic crisis, social unrest and total collapsing. The country debt reached a lot more than the nation GDP.

    However, they didn’t go anywhere for begging. But kept their dignities intact and tried other options to solve their problems including taking more debt. Because they found having more debt is better than exposing themselves for begging and so many other difficulties coming with it.

    Greek is a small nation with 11 million citizens. In order to solve their economic problems caused by uncontrollable and badly managed debt, they decided to borrow more and that is more than 90 billion euro or more than 100 billion dollar from Euro nations where Germany is on the top. That means 9 billion dollar per person, they have to borrow in addition in order to solve the problems they are facing because of debt. This sounds strange but during difficult time you need to take difficult decision and they found taking more debt is better than get humiliated because of bagging for aid or support that is not really for free particularly when it comes from the known corners with it.

    It is the same with other nations where USA, UK and the likes are the leading nations borrowing tens thousand dollars every second.
    Why they are borrowing? Is that for fun? No. it is to finance the citizens need mainly in UK for income support and so on. They are even using the borrowed money for their foreign policy agenda in poor nations like Ethiopia. And we are so stupid thinking they are doing this for free and for our good which is not true at all.

    Ethiopia is a big and ancient country with lots of potentials in the future. What Ethiopia needs is the best leaders that are making the nation economy, politics and social fabrics working based on the Ethiopian situations and benefits. The Government must not fear borrowing money if they are good enough to use it the best ways. Being independent from foreigners that are affecting the country in the name of aid or any assistances treating us as if we are not enough for us in our place doing by ourselves in our ways but they are there to change us imposing their things on us including English language that cannot be Ethiopian, African or black people, is what Ethiopia needs to do right now.

    We must borrow the money, spending it wisely by ourselves based on the needed situations. Avoid any bad and negative foreign interference or involvement including in the form of so called advice from the known so called aid agencies, NGOs and whatever name they are having but mobilize the nation for development having the best economic policies that are right now in place designed to benefit Ethiopians first and then those friendly and ally nations that are there for us doing their best for real rather than pretending while doing the opposite as those known are doing for decades.

    Again Borrow the money that will be the maximum of 1 billion. Use it wisely using only own people as aid workers and distributors. Have the best economic policies based on the Ethiopians benefits in the long run. Mobilize the people for development based on one Ethiopia for all mentality. Avoid all bad foreign involvements and interference including those coming from the embassies. This is the final time to say good bye to all so called aid agencies, charities, NGOs, Institutions and the likes that are there for years but doing nothing except bad things against our nations. The western so called Medias and Journalists era had to be passed since long times ago knowing they are evils and dangers against our country and people.

    Stop looking towards those…. for begging. When they know you are weak, they will approach you to make you weaker. When they know, you are getting sick, they will come to worsen your sickness while wishing your death. When they seen you are dead, they will come to bury you.

    Be the leaders and citizens of ancient and big Ethiopia. Solve you problems by yourself working together with those are able to do so. Look at other nations how they are dealing with their problems including those suffering from huge national debts like Greek, Argentina, Hungary, Ukraine and so on.

  13. us for us with us says:

    Turkey is rewarded with 3 billion Euro and free Visa entry within the EU for sheltering about 1.5 million refugees. Ethiopia is currently sheltering about 750.000 refugees and growing alarmingly.

    However, no one is talking about Ethiopia is hosting by big margins the biggest refugees in Africa let alone to facilitate her with resources and other benefits the same way they are doing to other refugee hosting nations like Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, even Kenya and so on. When it comes to refugees in Africa, they (the English and USA Zionists and establishments) are always mentioning Kenya despite Ethiopia is hosting the biggest refuges by big margins. Not only that they are to quick and to evil mentioning the Ethiopian refugees when they see one or two beyond Ethiopia despite their country Ethiopia is hosting the biggest refugees in Africa.

    Why is not mentioning by the known evil foreigners the biggest refugees in Africa being in Ethiopia? Why is Ethiopia not getting the right and enough assistance for hosting the biggest refugees in Africa the same way other are getting?

    Some of the reasons are:

    1. The evil English establishment and Zionists union are putting Ethiopia on the top of the list always to be blackmailed, dark painted, discredited, humiliated and tarnished on international arenas selecting, magnifying and repeating always only the bad and ugly about her because of she is the only nation they couldn’t colonize and most importantly is the only African nation have own African born black people alphabet using for thousands years, national languages, political system, culture, tradition and so on they are too busy silently to change that by targeting the youth, females and some ignorant, weak and sold out officials and individuals.

    2. Ethiopians themselves are weak and backward unable to play the games in international politics chase games in the information wars including bringing their case visible and making it bold based on her benefits. Instead they are relaying on those foreigners that are nonstop hammering them down, exposing them totally naked selecting only bad and negative things, happily humiliating them and spreading propaganda locusts about them.

    Foreigners mainly those from England, USA, since recently the Apartheid South Africans also became part of the wolf pack and others from Canada and Australia are flaying above Ethiopia like vultures do looking the dirt, sick, weak and dead on the ground. Their eyes are like the eagle ones misses nothing on the ground acting as human scavengers with aim to spread the bad news all over the world which is their job and bringing them monthly salary and good names.

    On the other hand, they are too carful not showing, writing or talking about anything good and positive about Ethiopia. They are savages and cold blooded no one understands what is in their brain but their evil actions against our country for decades telling everything about who really they are. These are few criminals part of the English establishment and Zionist union operating freely in the name of media, aid, Agencies, NGO, Charities, peace core (the idea of old peace core is no longer there), human rights, IMF, WB, WTO, UN, EU, investment, privatization, Globalization, and so on.

    What Ethiopia has to do is simple and has to be done long times ago which is own everything related to the country and society starting from the media. Evil foreigners in the name of media must not have any right anymore in our country about our media jobs knowing they are worse than any terrorist group exist on earth. Ethiopia is the longest and worst victim of these terrorists that are still in the country because of they are not confronted by the citizens yet.

    They are so stupid painting about and telling us to privatize our banks, telecom, Insurance and other very much money making sectors with goals they will get them in the name of hedge and equity funds, investment, privatization and so on. This was the case when they managed to bankrupt Russia in the 1990s before the great Putin came and renationalized the economy working based on the state capitalism system and privatization in the Russian hands by taking away from those came from USA and UK to bankrupt the society and loot the great Russia.

    The whole world knows who were those so called investors in Russia. Yelsin destroyed Russia within few years by allowing foreigners to take over the nation wealth in the name of privatization and foreign investment using some not by mind, heart and blood Russians as collaborators while Putin is building the nation to become to her past glory and he is getting there.

    Ethiopian leaders are and must continue watching and learning how great leaders and nations are doing in China, Russia, even Iran and so on for their country and citizens. The nation everything must be in the citizens’ hands and ownership including basic and fundamental sectors such as banks, telecom, Infrastructure, Land, water, Hydro energy, mining and so on.

    Ethiopian huge market and consumer are the biggest assets require lots of products in the future from agriculture to manufacturing and to industrial ones. These big assets must be protected and feed with products produced at home. Ethiopia also have great markets and consumers in the neighboring nations as far as beyond the red sea and we also have to have visions on that working together with best nations that are engaging in the production sectors like china, Japan, Germany, Korea, India, Italy, Benelux(including in the fruits and vegetables, meat and milk sectors) and so on.

    Ethiopia must avoid those so called aid agencies, NGOs, Charities and the likes that are using the money for their own benefits while it is called aid given to Ethiopia. When it comes to EU, Germans and native French people must be on the top of the list operating in the name of EU in Ethiopia including when it comes to aid delivering or advising. Italy has more places in Ethiopia than let say the longest and worst enemy which is England (the establishment and those around it). Scottish are different people don’t associate them with the English that is ruled by the Establishment and Zionist union.

    When it comes to UN; Chinese, Japanese, Russians and the likes must be in Ethiopia in the name of the organization rather than those known to make it not working and worsening the situation while using everything for their advantage and agenda in our country.

    However, the situation will get on its place and working the best ways for Ethiopians benefits only when Ethiopians are taking full responsibilities and having total controls about everything matters to the nation within and abroad. Ethiopian Medias must attack, defeat and eliminate the foreign terrorist Medias and journalists influence out of the country. They have no right or reason to do any media job about Ethiopia but Ethiopian Medias and journalists must do the job being hard workers and professionals based on the country benefits.

    Ethiopian solders are protecting the nation from foreign enemies always being ready paying any sacrifices needed including their lives. Ethiopian journalists must do the same in their profession serving the nation which is stopping the known evil foreign so called journalists doing any media job about the country they have nothing to do and the people they don’t belong and they don’t care at all. CCTV, RT and the likes are good enough when we need to have around foreign Medias.

    What kind approach is doing the Ethiopian government in the AU, EU and UN levels about the huge number of refuges being hosted in the country while other nations including Turkey are using it as best weapon in the international games to score more goals including by sending more refuges to Europeans invading forces in order to get more money and rewards in return from Europe and that is working for Turkey the best ways?

    The English evil establishments Medias, journalists, so called aid agencies, embassy and whatever other names they do have are talking the same tone and working together when it comes to Ethiopia. They are talking too much about how bad the drought is, making it sounding as if it is too difficult and impossible to handle by ourselves but they have to be there in the front which is the tactic they are using in order to implement their agenda as usual which are all is bad, negative and damaging. They are not talking about Ethiopia is hosting the biggest refugees in Africa and delivering enough and the right assistance.
    What Ethiopia has to do is sending the refugees to Europe despite we know England is the first nation in Europe putting walls on the boarder and closed the door for the refuges while they are the ones coming all over and causing problems that created conflicts and refugees.

    The current drought in Ethiopia must be seen as a God given gift if we know how to deal with it. Problems are bringing solutions. In the process the nation, citizens and Individuals become experienced, problem solving, knowledgeable and well equipped in the future. Therefore, Ethiopians must deal with it by themselves using own resources while accepting assistances that are coming from genuine and good nations without any consequences.

    Ethiopians must do the nation assistances by themselves including aid delivering and co ordination without any foreign so called aid agencies and whatever name they are having being around. This way, they can learn how to deal with the emergency issues in the future by themselves without having the English establishment and Zionist union around to push us back and take our place in our country which is making us to remain ignorant, weak and dependent on them which is the biggest mistakes we are making.

  14. us for us with us says:

    (It is part of the above message)

    ……Dealing with the drought totally being dependent by Ethiopians must be seen as best learning and training experience to be fully self sufficient and good enough by ourselves in the future. Avoid those using aid as a weapon for their advantage as it has been the case for decades. Expel all so called aid agencies, NGO, Charities and so on that are there for their own agenda and plan including worsening our situation in many ways such as making us unable to deal with our situation by ourselves including with human power using our own people for our situations.

    EU and UN need to give full rights and responsibilities to the Ethiopian government and people if really they are delivering the right and workable assistances/aids. EU and UN must stop always sending the English and Zionists coming from UK, USA and whatever nations they are from. If they have to, they need to send others including Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Germans, Italians, native French, Russians and so on working alongside with Ethiopians.

    We are not only tired of but too much hurting the English establishment and Zionists are always taking the lead in our country in the name of anything coming from abroad. Ethiopia needs to be free and independent from this well organized force working together for the same goal affecting us very badly in many ways for so long. Enough is enough and this is the time to make it true.
