    Band eras hulet milas mibalew yehae new. A few days earlier the notorious communication minster of the regime, Getachew Reda, told us it is politics and the Oromo movement is instigated by Eritrea and anti-peace elements in diaspora. Now, the puppet HMD is telling us diffrent story and actually he legitimizes the movement. The regime is so confused and really a laughing-stock. It looks the regime is on the right path for its demise.

      Dedeb Shimagle Eprp, it was initiated by anti peace elements including Gim 7, didn’t that stupid leader of yours say that g7 has hand on the unrest during that time. What the prime minister is saying is our weakness is the one which fueled the unrest in Oromia Kita ras.

    The unrest in Ethiopia is not related to the youth unemployment but the Zionists/Jews and English establishment dirty job to destabilize the country because of they are not getting the nation wealth and consumers/market under their ownership in the name of Globalization, privatization and investment engaging in service sectors that are the best tools to loot the nation without doing any valuable jobs but though bribe, corruption, manipulation, fraud, cheating, economic propaganda wars/terrorism and so on.

    We know 99.9% the jobs in Ethiopia are not yet done. Those are already done also need to be replaced with modern, quality and best designs. For that reason, Ethiopia must not have a single unemployed citizen among the active labor forces for more than a month which is good enough to find or change a job.

    However, blaming unemployment as the reason for the unrest is clearly showing how stupid and ignorant are our so called politicians and citizens because of the unrest has nothing to do with it. It is a well planned, orchestrated and executed foreign conspiracy/Zionists/Jews and English establishment dirty job to destabilize our country as they are doing against many nations including in the ME.

    Instead of blaming unemployment and lose your time and energy on it, you need to tackle the real enemies that are there to cause troubles in our country starting from the Zionists/Jews and English corporate medias and criminal so called journalists and others associating with them (working together) including in the name of NGOs, Charities, aid agencies, Think Thanks and so on.

    Don’t try to hide the real causes or sickness coming from abroad that are shadowing on our nation but face and expose them in order to keep our country free, safe and prosper for the citizens benefits.

    Work on in good governance and clean the lazy and dirty civil servants that are not delivering good services on time. This is another problem we are facing within and becomes the cases for public unhappiness with this administration. Treat them as dirty wastes and dangerous substances the lazy, irresponsible, corrupted, incompetent and brainless so called civil servants starting from within the government itself.

    There is big respect, trust and admiration for the PM Hailemariam Desalegn. He needs to get tough and precise dealing with the situations on time in order to solve them the best ways. He must know about the Ethiopian people nature for loving, respecting and totally relaying on strong, patriotic, determine, confidence and wise leaders. He also must know the vast majority the Ethiopian people is with him for any good decision he is taking and that has to start dealing with bad public sector employees that are not delivering services on time and those engaging with illegal and dirty activities including with bribes and corruptions for the jobs they have to do them for free and on time because of they are getting salaries paid by the public.

  5. us for us with us says:

    This is our beloved prime minister who has almost with everything in common with the vast majority people of Ethiopia. His parents’ situations, his birth, childhood, at school, workplace, social life, behavior and so on are very much related to the vast majority Ethiopians. There is no doubt he himself experienced the things the vast majority Ethiopians did/do and have deep understanding about poverty, being poor, uneducated, unskilled worker, living with shortages and so on as he was growing up being one of among the common Ethiopian people. He very much understands and related to his people over all situations as a leader than any leader does from elsewhere.

    Our beloved, respected, God fearing, responsible and citizen servants leaders salary/income is the lowest among all leaders worldwide, despite Ethiopia is one of the few ancient nations in the world and the biggest. By doing so, they are becoming the richest leaders in the world with love, respect and admiration by their citizens than any leader does elsewhere. They have to be very proud and happy for achieving these kind titles from their citizens of 100 million no leader elsewhere is achieving but engaging with criminal activities in the name of leadership. They must work hard to continue being the poorest leaders with dirty cash while the richest with public love, respect, trust and admiration which is worth million times more than anything associated to/with human.

    Take for instance the current English (UK) government. It is the worst of all towards own citizens and the rest of the world. A tiny and isolated island from the north end corner of the cold and dark part of earth which is England is producing evil so called leaders time to time for centuries. The PM and almost all members of his cabinet members are really one of the worst that evil island ever produced to affect the country and rest of the world. The PM and his cabinet members have nothing in common with the vast majority British (English) people. Their families were/are from the highest class. They grown up and get education feeling that way distanced/isolated from the main stream British society. They have no idea about being poor, Jobless, Homeless, sick and have no money to get medication/treatments the way they do, living in poverty, in Ghettoes, being unemployed, unable to get jobs because of reasons the job seekers cannot help/solve them and so on.

    yet, these strangers that have nothing in common with the mainstream of the English society are now ruling the British people with no understand and respect towards the citizens and without feeling about the bad and negative things happening against the citizens because of these aliens so called leaders bad policies and decisions. It is difficult to digest when so called leaders like these that have nothing in common with the people that are ruling the mass based on the class system (where the amount of money/income/wealth is deciding) are coming to Ethiopia and act as if they do care about us, know what is good for us more than we do to ourselves and they would assist us/solve our problems for free. KKKKK.

    Are we stupid and ignorant too this low level unable to see and understand who they are, what is in their mind, what they do and how they do these strangers so called leaders from England? They are running away from Europe because of Europe treats them equally which is they don’t like it. They think they have the natural right and merciless power to declare their will/regime/rule on others always looking the weak, stupid and ignorant to bribe, corrupt and use them to dominate and destroy. Them being inferior to Europe makes them to leave while looking Africa including Ethiopia to feel superior and declare their past to be at present which is the form of the 21-century type of slavery, colonization, looting, destruction, humiliation and you name it. Back then was in the name of civilized the people while this time for development reasons but all is for the same reason which is them at huge cost of others.

    They are busy with the influence of terrorism and fear mongering using tricks and tactics including aid and the likes as best weapons to be there peacefully which is cheaper and effective by sending their spays and establishment servants including to teach Ethiopians/Africans English language in Ethiopia and Africa. This is part of their past being at work in order to implement /brings it back at present. This is what is in their mind which is not going to be materialized no matter how hard they try and how evil they get which is going on actively since 2010; since these Zionists took power and treat the mass UK citizens and the world poor as herd of animals and the uncivilized and aggressive behaviors towards the leaders from the oppositions in UK.

    We have an innocent, young, educated, respectful and responsible PM who is tough but is not showing enough when it is necessary knowing a shepherd has to be smart, always awake and get aggressive towards the wild animals that are trying to attack his sheep. Tiny England also has a PM that has a very different…. than from ours. Our PM is trying to deliver results to all our citizens based on equality in the the state owned capitalism system. The class system and establishment leadership English PM is doing open wars against the mass poor citizens all over UK (Including Scotland, Wales and North Ireland) in the name of improving the economy while the few are getting richer every day and the mass are getting poorer, desperate and helpless. Since he took power in 2010, his policy is behaving that of during the tiny English empire era targeting citizens in their own countries using different tactics and tricks to make them lose themselves in their own places by imposing its dirty games on them including English language that cannot be blacks or Africans no matter how the speaker is perfect in it.

    He is now planning to come to Ethiopia as a visitor while running away from Europe because of Europe treats them equally with faire relationship rather than giving the highest special treatments and positions to them. We know way he is coming, what is going to say and for what reason. We also know, they think they do have their people within in the Ethiopian leadership serving for their agenda including in the foreign ministry and some PM advisors and cabinet members especially those have got some education/degrees as a gift from them for reasons to work for them back home as agents in their own country. The PM and Ethiopian people must aware of that and must not believe any word coming from this strange including to the English people when he come to our country in the name of visiting instead of telling the truth why he is coming.

    This is the PM who invaded and destroyed Libya rejecting the African union decision against the bombing, invasion and killing Gadaffi. This is the PM has no what so ever respect towards the mass English (UK) citizens including the respected and honest labor party leader Jeremy Corby and Scottish first minister. This is the PM taking the lead destabilizing the ME including Yemen. England is taking the lion share selling weapons worth billions in the war against Yemen. They are participating directly in the war saying as advisors but many are saying they are flaying jets and sending missiles against Yemen and defending eth Saudis. This is the PM in many occasions said racist remarks about Black African immigrants as his Foreign minister did including in Singapore against Black Africans with goal to undermine blacks in Asia.

    Of course the current English government (because of all of them are from England) is not seen by the citizens as English but the Jews. PM, foreign minister, canceller/finance minister, Home minister, work and pension minister and so on are seen as Jews ruling the English without any feeling, respect or understanding but all about money, wealth, domination and influence at home and abroad.

    The point is that we have our PM. Ethiopia is many times bigger than UK or 9 times England and is on the centre of the earth with the best natural gifts including the sun which is the centre of the Universe among the other the earth. Ethiopians’ jobs in Ethiopia are not done properly; even 1% of the total jobs. So, what we need is not a kind of PM like from that isolated and tiny criminal island to tell us lies after lies how good they are to us and how they are going to assist us which is the tactics and tricks to destroy us. We must wake up, open our eyes widely and constantly, observing the situation in the country and beyond, concentrate forward, use our resources, skills, experiences and determination to do our jobs. We have lots of potentials and abilities if we can organize ourselves to do our jobs effectively. Foreign money cannot create jobs in Ethiopia because of the jobs that have to be done easily and quickly the best ways are there in the open waiting to be done. Our scholars need to act according to their titles and deliver useful ideas, knowledge and skills for modern and better contribution for better development activities and results.

    Ethiopia needs no one but herself to develop by herself for her benefits while working together with the best nations like china and others that are plenty these days. Globalization, privatization and free trade the way we know is getting exposed and soon will die. Neo Liberal capitalism is the worst happen to humanity since slavery. Neo cons and Neo Liberals are two sides of a coin and two hands of the same body working together for the NWO agenda against the rest of the world. UK, USA, France and so on that are ruled by the Zionists/Jews are behind all this.

    So, be prepared and never trust or believe what the strange English PM is going to say and false promising how great is their tiny and isolated cold and clouded island, how generous they(leaders) are and other lies he is going to vomit based on the plan and agenda they are well preparing to play with our brain; thinking we are still stupid, ignorant and weak unable to stand for ourselves against any foreign aggression and tricks mostly coming from them despite they are too tiny, far away and too different from us. We and the world know them to the very detail who they are, what they do and why they do since the past 500 years.

    The Ethiopian government under PM Hailemariam Desalegn leadership need to behave as normal and competent human do at least on equal levels to anyone in any time and place while in Ethiopia they are the masters, owners and responsible for everything; not the evil foxes from the north pole area wearing expensive clothes made of wools from sheep skin acting differently while playing the known tricky games to get what he/they want which is free not fair trade and over taking/colonizing the nation in the name of privatization, investment and so on engaging including with health risky and environment unfriendly but money wise lucrative sectors(banks and financial sectors, insurance, telecom) they can loot the nation easily and quickly and become rich without delivering any meaningful jobs for our nation.

    Be well prepared for their coming to accommodate their satanic rituals including with dead Pigs heads and burning money in front of the homeless, poor and desperate people as they are grown up doing so. Read the book about them published in 2015 by someone knows them very well. Do you think they know anything about, have any feeling towards and have any intention to help the Ethiopian people when it is known their relationship with their own people from their young age has nothing in common? Get some brain and act as normal human being do being good enough to deal accordingly with the matters belongs to him as Ethiopia belongs to all Ethiopians.

    This is the time nations like china are here, there and everywhere ready to work and benefit together with no secret agenda and plan to cause troubles, divide the citizens, destabilize the government and destroy everything good and positive belongs to us as we know what the English leaders and those associated with the establishment behavior is doing for centuries including against china.

    The major cause of protests in Oromia and all across Ethiopia can no longer be swept under a rug. The cat had surely been out of a bag for quite some time that it would now be too late to attempt to put it back unnoticed. Mr. Hailemariam well remembers what his party had gone through, and moreover, what his dead mentor, Colonel Meles Zenawi faced in Oromia. Sky-high unemployment rate, chronic corruption, poor Governance, patronage, a chronic culture of impunity and an absolute disregard for public life and resources are just too much, and any and all of these do arrow toward a deadly political fire of the sort we saw in Oromia. The Prime Minister understands there are plenty of stains on his party’s linen, but was only attempting to swallow what look like pride and grief. In the mind of his interviewer and the eyes of the International press, Hailemaiam saw his life becoming a revolving door swinging at the whims of the Oromo public’s accelerating demand for justice, equality and freedom. In the midst of the ghosts haunting his party and his unstable Govt, he knew that he had to stand his ground, though no one could tell where that ground lay. All that he can’t do any more than he can do or be more than he can be, — but it is not enough. He is the Coalition’s chairman, he is the father. He is supposed to make it work. But things fell apart; the center can’t hold. He knew he was feeling sentimental and shaky, under siege and out of control. But if his country had to collect its pieces, however shattered those pieces are, and keep going, he needed someone who might help keep the ground steady under its feet. As the Premier had learnt from his dead boss, he knew that as the head of a Govt he had to demand an unbridled loyalty — or at least the appearance of it — from all his Aides and Cabinet officials, but this appears to be in short supply in a Coalition Govt, where each Coalition member swears an unshakeable allegiance to its mother party and the coalition only collects the leftovers in extension, if there is any at all. This leaves him at the mercy of the International Community who might help fund job creation for the millions of youth in Oromia and all across the country. Someone who would be willing to help his Govt deal with the El-Nino crises, which his Govt couldn’t put in the rear view mirror despite having an economy that was growing at 11% for the last decade. He wants the International Community to share the heavy load he was carrying. After all, his is a country that is an indispensable ally on the war on terror. How could the world let his nation go up in flames? For this he had to deflect attention and blame the crises on youth unemployment, bad Governance, patronage and the so called ”Anti-peace forces” supported by blood-foe, Eritrea. Hailemariam knew he had lost the media war despite making any media in the country just an extension of his Govt, and put Mr Getachew Redda as a Minister in charge of Govt Propaganda Affairs. But the rookie former Law professor whose contempt for his audience and struggles to put any Govt point across had so far contributed to the Govts’ woes rather than having a positive impact, and was no match for an extremely radicalized Oromo political analyst, Jawar Mohamed, whose venomous rants outclassed the Govt like FC Barcelona in their best ever form. If the Premier wanted to put his country back on track, the International Community understands he needed to deal with the main issues the Oromo public is raising head-on. Time for building pretty fantasies needed to come to a full pause. Reality needed to reign — and the reality is that the EPRDF had failed the Oromo public and the entire nation. It is wishful-thinking to expect the donor Community to buy EPRDF’s reckless theory of 11% economic growth and 100% electoral triumph wholesale. No one requires any further proof than the recent wave of public discontent that keeps rocking the nation. Kudos to the premier that he understood he and his Govt were standing on the slippery edge of a bout of depression and possible political suicide, but it was unfortunate that he continued playing a blame-game when he needed to be shooting straight with the public until he put all these dukes in a row. Despite the PM’s and EPRDF’s attempt to significantly downplay the extent of the political upheaval in Oromia, the nation keeps shaking. Senior EPRDF officials, including the contemptuous Getachew Redda, who once described the protesters as a ”bunch of gangsters”, are now speaking a different language, and Getachew himself joked on Fana Broadcasting Corporate that Oromo roots extend all the way up to Tigray and that ”we just shared too much with the Oromos” for them to look at the exit-door. He went as far as saying that the Constitution grants the right to leave, should any party feel so in a peaceful manner. He was a different guy, jovial and full of praises for even the likes of the Late General Wako Gutu, a clear indication that the regime’s panic is transparently obvious. The world couldn’t be deceived that putting Oromia under Emergency rule of a Military Council headed by TPLF General, Samora Yunus, is not only a political crises of exponential proportions, but something that had put the nation on its edge. Nor did the International Community want to be lied to that petty criminals, other than the TPLF Intelligence wing, broke into the House of Federation and stole files and computers in an effort to destroy any incriminating evidence should the Govt fall. This is not just a political crises but one that is unprecedented in the nation’s history for all its reasons. The Oromos have the Govt in a rope and the PM understands his Govt’s exit strategy is limited to fully yielding to public demand. According to sources in the EU in Brussels, a high ranking EPRDF Govt official who didn’t want to be named had made it clear that the Govt was ready to surrender to public demands and was genuinely seeking their mercy, but would be going tooth-and-nail after the radicals based in the diaspora. But experts are of the opinion that the EPRDF was the loose ends the Oromo public need to tie off. More, the Oromo public feel senior TPLF officials insulted them publicly and won’t let that slide. If the Govt surrenders, the only thing the public need is to kill it off.

    As the nation keeps bleeding profusely and Ethiopians wonder if their country as they knew it would ever continue to exist at this time when the separatists’ flag keeps flying non-stop in Europe and North America and parts of Oromia where the protests go too far, it is very fair to ask if we could just be mere by-standers watching the inferno from the top of a fence. As Ethiopians we all have countless flaws of our own, but desperately attempting to live out of two suitcases shouldn’t have been one of them, but unfortunately it was — and for this, I just say shame on us all for being petty ”Narrow Nationalists and Chauvinists” at the same time, to borrow the words of the EPRDF. For PM Hailemariam though, though in the words of his close Aides he was a man of his words; politics doesn’t have plenty of rooms for such people, and as such, while he surely needs someone who might give him comfort, answers and lit something in him along the way that might help burn away the raw edges of the trauma he is going through, the nation expects him to handle this issue with a very thorough objective precision, and to me, lying is not part of that.

    Ethiopia’s big problem is we get a person like Meles Zenawi once in thousands years in Ethiopia.We should have made Meles Zenawi mentor someone to replace him while he was alive.TPLF can still produce another leader close to Meles Zenawi’s level, since TPLF is a better organization than AFC or Ghandi’s organization.
