    @Admin, knowingly or unknowingly you are instilling/inflaming hatred against Tigrians in the non-Tigrian community by propagating fake and unrealistic achievements of the Tigray region at a time the a Tigray woyanes are shading the blood of Oromo, Gambela, Amhara and other Ethiopians to prolong the looting spree. It will come time you will regret your actions that will contribute for the demise of the Tigray ethnic people.

    Peace to all but woyanes!

      priceless…. i thought u guys boycotting the economy what happened ?

      u embedded loser … u tell me intelligent is writing correct grammar… meaning u r studying here in America and u dont want ur own people to get education to write correct grammar just like u…

      seeing your reaction is beyond this world

      it is a pinnacle of all jealousy o! my God

      i have image of u r well educated person not real education but what i like to call a Ponzi scheme education i give u an example let take Dr.birr

      Dr. birr study economy but he never work with his economy degree instead he started a Ponzi scheme… how this Ponzi scheme work is very simple

      dr. birr find 30 students when like to run economy they pay him to teach them economy now the fun part is when those students finished their schooling they dont get a real job instead they will become a teacher and the start teaching another 30 students how to become an economist do see the Ponzi scheme at work

      now u might ask who is the real economist i give u name Mrs. Eleni Gabre-Madhin: she created commodity exchange that trade daily billion birr that is how economist work not like Dr.birr a ponzi schemer

      anyhow ur education might be in Religion study or political study or another economist in short useless education that doesn’t get u any job in real world the most educated Amhara r a teacher and they teach in UNIVERSITY that all they can do ,,,,

      dear Ermi

      u r the one who shad the blood of Oromo, Gambela, Amhara by telling them to do revolution and by telling they have right to loot and riot why not you try it in USA and tell me how it went ,,,

      my dear Ermi U R responsible for each Ethiopian death if u worry for 400 oromo and Amhara life (based on your count)then u should have worried when million people become refugee and 100,000 died when TPLF lose control and the country turn in to anarchy… u dont have to guess about this all u have to do is look what power vacuum created in Libya to Syria… the sad thing is you dont even care let Ethiopia become another Somilia all u want is power if u dont get it let Ethiopia go to hell

      be honest what would Amhara do … if they had a drive to do something then they could have done it while they sitting in the land of opportunity but they dont do nothing i give u example

      we have 2 million Ethiopian in USA out of this 1,9 million are taxi driver and parking lot attendance or doorman … the point is if those 2 million taxi driver pool 1000 dollars they would have 2 billion dollar now tell me they could not have started economy revolution let alone in Ethiopia but in the whole Africa … instead this taxi driver and doorman wasted their time by demonstration on Sunday because Monday is work day for last 40 years all TPLF HAVE TO DO is wait antoher five year all the children of Mengistu Haile Mariam will say good bye for one last time I SAY RIP

        I think you should stop pretending to represent the views of ordinary men and women of Tigrai.the more persons like you are allowed to carry on with their ridiculous and inflaming comments unchecked the less likely peaceful coexistence among Ethiopians.

        I also want to know how you arrived at your implied conclusion that being a taxi diver or parking lot attendant is not an honorable job? aren’t these people behind the growing remittance money in Ethiopia? I mean apart from protesting?

        • ethoash says:

          rogan josh

          every job is an honorable job … but if eye doctor try to operate on your heart u should tell him he is an eye doctor not heart surgeon in fact u should tell him fast before he operate on your heart

          now if the taxi driver and parking lot attendance if they r doing their job transporting white master from one place to other fine by me the parking lot attendance also Sheppard this white master car i have no problem but the same idiot try to tell us how to run the Ethiopian economy and politic i have to put them to their place and tell them they r loser if not why in hell out of 2 million Ethiopian how come 1,9 r taxi driver and parking lot attendance… if u go to wedding everyone drive taxi what the hell after 40 years Ethiopian should have used the opportunity the EPRDF give them and went to Ethiopia and invested and by now they could be somebody … u r not embarrassed every white think all Ethiopian are taxi driver …. as i said dont take it out of the out of the context what i am saying totally different what u r thinking … i am putting them in their palace those who doesn’t know their place but u took it presonally even if u r successful you know your next of your kin r taxi drivers that is why i touch your nerve
          by the way what i exposing those 1,9 taxi driver for who they r is for Ethiopian reader when they read the comment they thing come from well education person because they are associating America with high education … they r wrong association of America with educated people so they might mistaken those taxi driver for educated people that is why i am exposing your dirty laundry….

          I WISH if u concentrated on my message then concentrating on me

    Mr DaWit. I have no clue why you focus on Tigrai and EPRDF authorities. Might there will be some real thing.
    Now what i realized is -no one non-Tigrai Ethiopians trust Tigreans when they speak by opposing EPRDF/Woyane.
    I was really nationalist in my past life. Now i see most Amharu peaple doesn’t trust Tigreans whatever they do against the current regime.
    Ifso i give up nationalism. If no body trust Tigreans as a nationalist, that is un-profitable political business for opposing Woyane/EPRDF For Tigreans. Ethiopianism is not religious. We can creat Tigrai -Afar + Djibouti territories as a nation to live trustfully nation. If Eritreans doesn’t want to unite with us we can have Djibouti port by United with Afar/Awash road to Red sea port. And will be peace by avoiding jealous Gonders

    In the TPLF/Tigre world the truth hurts the most and changes the games completely they are playing with full of lies, distorting facts, denying realities, using forces and killings become the ways of their rules and lootings.

    This is the reason why they are making nonstop noises towards ESAT that is the biggest Ethiopian TV and Radio station in any place related to Ethiopia in the country and worldwide operating professionally based on the international as well as national laws and regulations where it is located.

    TPLF hates the most the truth and fears it more than any danger coming within or outside against them. It is a false and wrong criminal rebel organization operating with the fascist and Mafia styles. They don’t want the people to know about the truth, rights, rules, regulations, the meaning of government, development, democracy, rule of law and accountabilities. ESAT is doing that and they are burning from inside while angry from the outside unable to stop it despite they are trying as much as they can including paying the public money for bribe reasons.

    The west has rules and regulations. It is not the TPLF world in Ethiopia. USA, UK and Israel that are the primary nations TPLF is relaying on to continue the crimes it is committing against the innocent citizens including declaring open war against the amhara, have no the power to stop ESAT operating as media, as long as it keeps the media rules and laws. Particularly the English will pay the price when the time comes because of we know they are behind all this wishing to Keep TPLF on power to serve their interest by doing what it is doing.

    They know TPLF has no future. But they are still supporting them instead of telling them what is right and wrong which is leaving power peacefully without causing any damage against the nation unity and prosperity. They are looking/planning and supporting them to see our nation becomes another failed state and USA and UK are the main nations causing all failed states in the world.

    We know they are looking to see civil wars on Ethnicity and religion basses in our country knowing this will cause a failed state. That is why they are saying nothing against TPLF despite they know it is a criminal group has no future in Ethiopia but on the process to cause civil wars and ultimately the nation becomes failed states.

    What they don’t know is that Ethiopians will not allow such things happen against them and the nation. Instead particularly the English will be totally rejected in Ethiopia after their 40 years old continuous fostering Child which is TPLF is gone. We know MI6 and CIA brought them on power 25 years ago as they supported them before for 17 years as rebels. F-ck the UK government, embassy, MI6 and agencies that are using Ethiopia to beg but taking the money for themselves while giving a little to TPLF/Tigres they are working together this way for decades against the rest of Ethiopia.

    F*ck the western mainly UK and USA so called NGOs, Charities and aid agencies. They are part of TPLF and don’t like to see TPLF is gone because of it is making the nation the place of poverty, hunger and the free ride of money minded foreigners including aid agencies and NGOs from UK and USA.

    Keep in mind particularly UK being behind the TPLF crimes going on in the country. We also know UK is persuading others including USA and Israel to stand alongside with the TPLF criminals not to keep them on power indefinitely but to facilitate the civil wars in order to see Ethiopia as a failed state which is their main goal.

    We must aware of that and deal with TPLF in our ways. No one defeats us when we are uniting.

    i have a message to Mekelle University: Hub of Academic Excellence

    everything u do must be self supporting

    u said the university see 150,000 patients per years … those patients get service because of government funding the question is how long this funding will be there instead it should be self supporting how u do that very simple by selling health insurance say 100 birr per month and u have 3 million members that would be 300 million birr per month and 3 billion birr per year

    once the member bought health insurance they get checkup every 6 month full checkup and twice a years dental cleaning and other service

    3rd graduate health officer this health officer can go from house to house and check up on people health they also take blood pressure this way u keep the people healthy

    4th this university must act like industry for example the university hospital need food net work with food suppler and u create job around the hospital the hospital need a lot of clearing product and hospital furniture all can be made locally this way the hospital creating job for local as suppler the hospital need is countless therefore study must be done to supply it locally and creating job in the process

    5th the university said they help the farmer to keep cattle more cattle means more milk but this milk must have market so the university must make market for the milk by processing the milk to cheese and other product not only that but the university must process aggro product hence the local will get their market near by

    the list is long i will stop for now here

    University means universal. Universal means inclusive based on merit; not race, religion, ethnicity, clan and so on affiliations. So called Mekkele University is created and run by Ethnocentric TPLF Tigre rebel group sadly they are on power for the last 25 years taking power by force after engaging with 17 years long brutal civil wars against the nation causing the death of millions, lots of destructions and sufferings.

    This is an ethnocentric institution on the higher level; has nothing to do with any international or national institution principles believes with universal values, laws, regulations and society based on Merits. This is a TPLF Ethno centric creation and home base stands for the TPLF/Tigre Ethnic affiliation and kilil policies in the country. This kind institution has no future as long as it doesn’t include everyone and stops dividing the society/individuals based on race, religion, Ethnicity, clan and so on.

    What this ethnocentric creation mekkele university stands for concerning the TPLF ethnic politics and kilil that had been designed to get reasons in order to take lands from Gonder, Wollo and Afar?
    What is this TPLF institution position about the current Ethiopian situation under the TPLF Ethnocentric rules relaying on guns and killings? Are they against Ethnic policy and kilil knowing this is not working in the 21-century society in any country? Are they telling the TPLF thugs to stop what they are doing against the society based on their 40 and 50 years ago ideology and world understanding which is too different than what is in the 21-century? Are they working for the good of the country instead of handing over awards after awards to individuals that are criminals including Sebhat Nega?

    Too many of us understands that the so called mekkele university belongs to TPLF and its Greater Tigry plan and dream which is not going to happen the way they are thinking. Things have been like walking on cakes for them for the last 25 years. They did against the nation and society anything they want in anytime with any external force including NGOs, Aid agencies, Charities for the worst of our people mainly against the Amahra. They implemented the worst policies possible against the nation including Ethnic politics and kilil based on their privately taught, written and ratified so called constitutions.

    However, things are now dramatically changed. As always it has been doing, this time too Gonder changed the TPLF/Trigres position in Ethiopia forever, as Gonder is the mother and father of modern Ethiopia started 155 years ago creating a united modern Ethiopia after Zemene Mesafint during the time when there was no a single independent African nation at that time and very few worldwide beyond Europe and the Americans. The great Gonder uprising with that magnitude in 2016 totally destroyed the TPLF 42 years….. including the creation of Greater Tigry by taking lands from Gonder, wollo and Afar illegally and by force.

    Mekkele University must act as the place of universal thinking and acting which is peace, unity, respect, prosperity and common future instead of being the centre of TPLF that has a very short period of painful time remaining on power. As a higher education institution, they must think beyond the TPLF/Tigre Ethnocentric politics and kilil which is not good for Ethiopia while will be the worst for them and Tigry as whole. They must deeply understand that Tigry will never ever get the ownership of lands beyond the Tekeze River in Gonder, Raya in Wollo and those from Afar. They must not think and expect differently that it is stated about them here. That will never ever happen. Tigry with Ethiopia is welcome all over the country. Tigry alone taking lands don’t belong to them, that will never happen even in a million year. So think big and act nationally which is good for the country and best for Tigry.

    Death to the TPLF Ethnic politics and Kilil that is putting our country and society in a great danger and it not compatible in the 21-century world in any country but only in Ethiopia under TPLF/Tigre thinking this is good only to them and bad for Ethiopia. However, it is going to be the greatest danger to them as Ethiopians are now getting understandings about the issues including their common enemy and united to face it in order to save the country and society have been under fret by a Tiny minority Group as Tigrians are for more than 25 years.

    Is Mekkele University really a University or….?
