    I was expecting Berhane Gebrechristos to be the next fm.

  2. Appointing a so freshly minted PhD to the FM — unheard of anywhere!!

    The new FM, Workneh Gebeyehu got his PhD in Police Science from UNISA in 23 May 2016. Now, tell me if this ain’t no political appointment! Don’t try to sell meritorious appointment crap, it is insulting people’s intelligence!

    Theodros Adhanom being gone from the Ethiopian politics and issues as an official and the end of the so called PM advisors that was totally run by the TPLF gangs is the best thing to start with. Where is Redwan Hussien? Bring him back.

    We have been expressing our objections explaining the reason why Theodros Adhanaom was not fit to be a health Minister. No one listened as the nation was totally under the TPLF rule and total control. As health minister, he managed to do the way things did happen and still is going on without objections. As many are saying he was appointed as health minister to implement the English policies, projects and plans in the Ethiopian society using the health sector.

    We know what kind crimes have done against the Amhara females, mothers, men and children to stop them having children using vaccinations, sterilization and castration that are causing the life time illnesses as well as deaths using the same methods Israel did to the bete Israelis that are Amhara as well.

    Back then they were saying controlling one million people was easy after controlling a city or town through war/occupation as they did during slavery and colonization. Today they are saying killing one million people is easy using the so called vaccinations, so called medicines, contaminating the water, food, the air and so on. The vaccinations going on in Ethiopia is not really about the health of the children but about the English lead western/Jews project to make them sick and suffering from other long term health issues including Autism. Western medical institutions are causing the sicknesses in order to sell medicines, medical equipments and so on.

    These kind wars against our society are going on targeting the Amhara in our country started the day Theodros Adhabnom became a health minister. Since that time it is going on in our country without knowing the quality of the vaccinations/medicines, the short as well as long term effect of the citizens’ health and the western secret agenda behind it.

    When they knew their first plan was achieved being Theodros Adhanom as health minister and they got strong presence and total control in the country health sectors, then they appointed him as foreign minister. We have saying none stop for the last four years since his appointment about the Ethiopian foreign ministry wrong doing. It was there not serving the country but the west mainly English and also USA affecting our country and people badly in many ways coming in the name of aid, NGO, Charities, Journalism and peace corp.

    We have been saying about the evil nature of the Anglo-American or exactly saying the Jews controlled medias and journalists from England, USA, South Africa, Canada and so on that are waging media wares against Ethiopia for decades and since Theodros they got free ride being in the country and doing it openly and freely from within. The same time TPLF has been jailing, shutting down or forcing the Ethiopian journalists to leave the country despite these western racist and evil so called medias and journalists run by the Jews are the worst enemies our nation is facing them for decades and they are there to cause troubles and destroy our nation image with no respect or feeling towards the citizens at all.

    He is now gone which is too late but is a good news. However, his damaging legacy is still there including the presence and activities of the English, USA, Canada, South Africa and so on Jews control and run Medias. The evil English so called aid agencies, NGOs, Charities are also still there doing the same thing they have been doing for decades working together with TPLF and Theodros was there best agent; everyone knows that.

    What green, water rich, fertile and nice weather Ethiopia needs is herself; being free from the Anglo-American/Jews anything. A country like Ethiopia needs no more the tiny and far away evil English around for anything. The English don’t want to be part of the EU because of it is not good for them. Do you think they are around our country for decades because of they do care about us? Noooooo. It is about them to affect us the ways they have been doing for decades.

    No more the English-USA and the likes types of aid, NGO, Charities and whatever name they are using to come in to implement their damaging projects and agendas on our people. Ethiopia needs herself first and always while working together with useful, peaceful, respectful and understandable nations. Ethiopia needs herself means the country must get peace, unity, fairness and honesty within among the citizens.

    No one brings peace, unity, jobs and prosperity to Ethiopia but the citizens themselves by doing the right things for them. No one affects the Ethiopian peace, unity, jobs, development and so on but Ethiopian themselves. The TPLF self imposed rule is just doing that because of it is doing bad, negative and illegal things against the nation and citizens. Occupying wolkait and Raya is one of the many biggest mistakes and reasons TPLF did and is now causing problems in the country and will not go away until it is corrected based on historical facts.

    What TPLF did for the last 25 years was against these very important principles. They were doing everything based on their own agendas and benefits at the expense of the others. Dividing the citizens based on Ethnicity and magnifying it in the 21-century is a crime. Dividing the country in the name of Kilel based on lies which is against historical facts including Wolkait and raya being part of Tigry is an occupation and a big crime. Allowing the English freely and none stop playing damaging roles in our country in the name of aid, NGO, Charities, medias and journalism is not stupidity but the intentional mistakes/crimes TPLF have been doing for decades just to monopolize the power and control the nation.

    Ethiopia needs no one but herself means she must have peace, unity, institutions, the Ethiopian way of democracy, human rights, jobs and developments in order to guarantee the citizens needs and necessities. In order to have peace and unity, the Wolkait and Raya issues must get the first priorities to solve them based on the historical facts; not the TPLF fictional stories about and the mass illegal settlements done since 1991 with goal to continue occupying and looting these very important historical Amhara lands. As long as this issue is not solved, there will be no peace and unity in the country. More than 30 million Amhara and others in the country and abroad will not stop even for a minute but use this issue as best reason to do the things that is going on in the country and abroad since July 5, 2016 in Gonder related to Wolkait and Raya as well. .

    The Wolkait and Raya issue not being part of the historical amhara territories will not go away unless it is solved the right ways as soon as possible. The new cabinet must stop acting as if this issue is not there or it is easy to ignore but face it as it is very hot and fundamental in order to solve it. TPLF has been trying to hide, ignore or minimize it while doing its criminal things in Wolkait and Raya because of it is controlling the area with military forces and looting it while the nation is affected as a result because of unrests caused by the wolkait and Raya issues.

    Solve the wolkait and Raya issue today in order to see peace and unity strait away in the country. Let the citizens live, work and make the best life anywhere and anytime in the country as they wish. Start softening the Ethnic federalism and kilel ideas among the citizens using the Ethiopian media that is still controlled by TPLF and the citizens have no interest to watch or listen it because of it is full of lies and TPLF propaganda for its own interest. Create jobs in the country where everything is waiting to be done/made with quantity, quality and variety on time.
    Ethiopia is not like Egypt, Sudan, or other desert nations with very limited fertile land and soil, scarcity of water, hot weather or cold nations in Europe but thanks to the highland and mountains she is a God given green, fertile, water rich and best weather nation in the middle of the earth. Meaning the best place to create jobs, get results and unlimited development. So, instead of relying on the Anglo -American type of aid that is designed to control and destroy weak and stupid nations as it is going on against Ethiopia for decades because of TPLF, the country needs herself doing her things by herself and working together with china, Russia, Italy, Japan, EU, India and the likes.

    Totally avoid the English any involvement and influence in the country which is destroying our society and nation going on for decades because of TPLF having relationship with them both being against the nation and society targeting mainly the Amhara. Stop them while treat them as enemy number one; the English language foreign journalists and medias almost all of them are owned and run by the Jews from the west mainly England, USA, Canada, South Africa and Australia as well as France. We know what kind propaganda criminal jobs they are doing to destroy our country with civil wars. We have been saying about these criminal for years but the TPLF gangs didn’t listen.

    Let’s kill it forever and send it to hell the idea of the Anglo-American aid, NGO, charities and the likes designed to control and destroy nations like they are doing to Ethiopia for decades sending the criminal and racist female well as male spy agents pretending differently. China, Russia, Japan, Italy, India, EU, and the likes are the best. Most of all and for always Ethiopians are the only and best answers for themselves and their country if they know how to behave among themselves and do the jobs as normal human do in the 21-century.

    Solve the Wolkait and Raya issue today based on historical facts in order to get comprehensive and long term peace, unity, prosperity and good life. It is a do or die issue will not go away until it is solved; meaning ending the Tigry occupation by crossing the Tekeze river which is the natural border since the time of memorial and allowing all the citizens to live and work in the country in any place and time as they wish without any limitation but with full citizenships rights. .

The other big surprise for me is less representation of Muslim in general Oromo Muslim in particular especially at federal level, which represents nearly 50% of the total population of the region and above 25% of the country. Why? I hope it wouldn’t create some sort of friction inside the Oromo sects and pray stick to I am Oromo first! Ideology and moving forward as African Giant!

    The current regions vs former provinces because of the nature of formation
    1. The state of Tigray: Mainly formed from former Tigray province+wolkayit awraja from Gonder+Raya azebo from wollo
    2. The state of Afar: Mainly formed from former Harargie and Wollo provinces, +pocket areas from Tigray and Shawa provinces because of nature of new formation of the state.
    3. The state of Amhara: Principally formed former Begemidir (Gonder),Gojam and wollo provinces + pocket area of shoa as it is seen above North shoa (Debera birhan).
    4. The state of Oromia: Mainly formed former Shawa, Harargeh, Arsi,Wollega, Iluabbor,Bale, Kafa (the current Jimma zone) provinces and also Sidamo (the current Gujji and Borena zone).
    5. The state of Somalie: Mainly formed from Hararge (Ogaden area), Bale (Elkare area) and small part of sidamo (Liban zone).
    6. The of Benishangul/Gumuz: the areas cut away from Wollega and Gojjam, The region is said to be formed by five native ethnic groups but the proportion of the sum of Oromo and Amhara close 60%
    7. The state of SNNRP: Principally formed from former Sidamo (Sidama, Wolaita and Gedeo zones ), Shawa (Gurage,Silte,kambata and Hadia zones alaba woreda), Gamogofa small parts of Kafa and Iluabbor provinces of the former regime.
    8. The state of Gambella: One sub-province of former Ilubabor kiflehager (mattu or Gore)
    9. The state of Harari: principally Harar town +18 rural kebeles Harar town is considered the second religious center of Islamic worl next to Mekkah. Hararis are only 8% percent of the total population of Harari region but jointly administer with Oromos (around 70%)
    So where is the demand of Gondere about wolkait? If it is because of adminstartion system Humera was under should be under new system, the formulae doesn’t work and groundless but it is possible to ethnic federalism-it is this administration system that annexed to Tigray. Tigray also given land to Afar, Iluabbabor to Gambella so what? So it is good to reasonable.
    Federalism in its general form it is not bad, countries like America, Canada, Australia and Europe have adopted and proved its relevance. Even it is the pills now proposal on progress for the countries in crisis like Iraq, Syria etc. In Ethiopia also the constitution is well written but the real application still require a lot of work and improvement. Federalism is not top down but bottom up, decentarlisation, taxonomy, identity, authonomy etc

  7. “Federalism in its general form it is not bad, countries like America, Canada, Australia …… adopted and proved its relevance” Seriously, my friend I don’t know where you live but this countries don’t even want touch “federalism that Ethiopia practices” with sever foot pole. Get real!!

    With out looking any farther for social harmony, look at Eritreans and learn. Eritrea has nine ethnic groups. Ask any Eritrean and you will not hear anyone identify with any ethnic group first. Will tell you he is Eritrean, nothing more! Why can’t the multiethnic Ethiopia thinks similarly????

  8. berihu well says:

    In Ethiopian, there are two tires of autonomous governments. These are the Regional and Federal governments. However, being two governments can not preclude the citizens from saying ” we are Ethiopians”. Nevertheless, Ethiopians are not smart as Eritreans, not all, a few because starting the end of 18 century chauvinism came in to view. Due to this still, some Ethiopians are chauvinists. Unless, every Ethiopian is proud of his country just like Eritreans.
