    አሁን የኢትዮጵያ ህዝብ በአይኑ በብረቱ አንድ ነገር አየ ፡፡ ኢትዮጵያ ኢትዮጵያ ብለው አደንዝዘው መልሠው ሊገዙ የሚፉልጉ የትእቢትና የእብጠት ወኪሎች ትክክለኛው መጠርያቸው ጎጠኛ ባለ ትንንሽ አእምሮዎች መሆናቸው ታወቀ ፡፡

    ዘረኝነታቸውን በባንዲራ ሸፍነው ሊመለሱ መሆኑን ሁሉም አውቋል ፡፡
    አለም በምክነያትና በስራ እንጂ በፈጠራ ወሬ አትመራም ፡፡ ኢትዮጵያውያን ብቻ ሳይሆን አለምም አፍንጫችሁን ላሱ ብሏቿል ፡፡
    ጎጠኛ መንደሬ !

  6. Muller says:

    Congratulations to all Ethiopians in general, to Tigrians and to Dr. ADHANOM in particular, shame and death to all dark thinkers and opponents like Shaebia and Gim7. Tigrians and the Woyane spirit is growing in the whole world, and the back thinkers of Ethiopia are deepening in their struggle by the day. We Tigrians are proud Ethiopians, our SUCCESS never fails, our struggle continues to flourish with Victory and POVERTY reduction. Remember WHO is WHO, IT IS YOUR HIGHNESS DR. ADHANOM G/YESUS. KNEEL DOWN AND BOW YOUR HEADS.

  7. Mahmoud says:

    There is no any single country established with one ethnic group, language, culture, religion and party. But it looks that, the toxic Ethiopian diaspora have never learned from reality and history. those groups have used the tendency to hijack all political issues for their own purposes. Those people are concerned of advancing one ethnic group and their narrow interests only. They use racial and ethnic hatred as a convenient means of struggle. The disgrace opposition and campaign by those groups against the candidacy of Dr.Tewdros Adhanom is part and parcel of this strategy. Shame on you!!!!

    Good job and good luck at it. In process we all learned that there are two Ethiopia one in the hearts and minds of the vocal minority reminants of the old and another the mutually inclusive mother land for the rest of us. As witnessed the former is a dream but the later is as real as the new director general of WHO.

    Congratulations!!

  13. Ittu Aba Farda says:

    I have said this many times before. It would be a futile effort to stop this man from being chosen as the leader of WHO. He has a unanimous backing of the AU as he is the first such candidate as an African. In light of this strong support behind his candidacy, the state of the opposition is dismal. When I read the news that one such opponent sneaked in the meeting hall of the WHO and began shouting that nobody understood him, I knew then and there that this candidate’s election is sealed. That is not a dignified way of expressing opposing opinion. The other thing the electors might have looked at might have been the fact that this candidate is a late comer to the regime back home. So it is done now and he is the director of WHO. There is nothing that can be done about it. That is what happens when the opposition remains in disarray. A longtime friend in Europe was telling me the other day that even among the demonstrators there were some individuals who came almost to blows over the display of some kind of a flag. That is not funny at all except to the goons at Arat Kilo and their bosom buddy in Asmara. I have this strange hunch about the next battleground. I will not be surprised that if one of the officials in the inner circle of the regime back home throws his lot for a high profile position in another UN agency or even IMF or The World Bank. You watch!!!

    Congratulation Dr. Tedros Adhanom, good luck and I wish you success in overcoming the many challenges you will face during your tenure at the helm of WHO.

  15. Gedif says:

    Congratulations Dr Tedros,
    You deserve to be a general director of WHO. We all Ethiopians are proud of your achievement. I am sure you will teach those Ethiopians who unowingly opposed and and became a laughing stock of themselves. May God be with you in all your work.

  16. Ittu Aba Farda says:

    As a staunch Afrocentric, I congratulate this man for being elected to be the next director of WHO. Now it is time for him to prove who doubted him from Europe to Latin America wrong. I wish him continued success. I say that to him or about him not seeking any fringe benefits in return because I have been blessed as a result of lifetime old fashioned hard work in the factory jungles of the Good Ole USA, Latin America and Asia. Go get’em tiger!!!

  17. Observer says:

    Congratulations Dr. Tedros !
    I am proud an Ethiopian acquired such a prestigious position.
    Best of Luck!!

  18. Nardos says:

    Contrats for all Ethiopians. This is a determination that we all can learn from. A can do!! attitude.

    Unfortunately, for the G7 and others, this is a doomsday like all the other days. It was a real chance for them to show that they are Ethiopians… but as we suspected it, their deep rooted racial hateress prevented them from hiding their ethnic agenda. This should embolden the people of Ethiopia in their pursuit to unite against previous rulers reminiscence thinking.

    again for Dr. Tedros… Contrats. Given what you have achieved as a health minister, you really deserve it. What you will face will be much more complicated. but since you succeed in Ethiopia where every kind of health problems are available, I believe, you will win again.

    The toxic diaspora is exposed again. Ethiopians of good will shall continue exposing these idiots again and again! Bann them from your circles, and shame them as they are bandas which will kill and sell Ethiopia covered in the flag Green, Yellow, Red!

  21. Congratulation Dr Tedros Adhanom
    Congratulation for all Ethiopian with good intentions.
    DR Tedros Adhanom Elected as the next Director-General of the World Health Organization Out of 185 counties countries cast their ballots by winning 133/185 vote beat DR David Nabarro the British candidate .
    Although the disgruntled diaspora had been tried everything in their level best from all corners of the globe and travel extra mills to discredit Dr Tedros Spearheaded by Prof Alemyahu. Even they tried to interrupt and disrupt the proceedings at the meeting in Geneva, But to no avail. The painstaking preparation by the disgruntled diaspora for 2 years and the false allegation by Habtam Ayalew and Reeyot Alemu is malicious to damage DR Tedros Adhanom reputation and carefully choreographed by AL. their tremendous Jealousy and hate has no limit; if this tremendous energy had been spent in bridging our difference to day would be different day but it is an evil continually enduring, and a sin without end
    Don’t try to lecture me the phony Ethiopian unity in a Song (Fukera and Kererto) I am talking about the reality on the ground , Just as the saying goes, ‘Actions speak louder than words’
    If the election was in Ethiopia the hatred and naysayer’s diaspora and their hate mongering media outlet would have come with allegation as
    • The election process was rigged by the minority group
    • Ballot papers had been stolen before the election
    • Voters had been intimidated and harassed before and during the Election Day
    This election will put the naysayers to rest for now until they get some excuse to spew their hate venom.

    I want to Address the racist extremists Our ,/Axumite/ flag is not only for them, it’s belongs to all Ethiiolians, unless priority is for Tigreans/Axumite, we have to dominate all other tribes on the superiority mentality of the racist ESAT/Gim7 supporters, I know the first enemy of us is Arabs and Eritreans

    • Getachew says:

      I would say congratulation! TO Dr. Tedros, you showed the capacity we have to the world, that we are capable of leading in every corner. If those chavinists are ready to learn ,they should know that barking will not represent them in the glob. I recommend them to learn well and get prepared to be represented in the world. Barking will only creat noise pollution to the environment and mental illness to the chauvinist them selves. They usually depend on twisted history they fabricated. But now they are acting as a dog (barking)one after the other. I think it is also good to make clear that we are not ready to hear and missled by chauvinist propaganda any more. We learn much from their chauvinist behavior for many years now. We are ready to kick them as usual. We are not propaganda fighters like them. If the forest comes history will repeated it self.

  23. Getachew says:

    I would say congratulation to our African and Ethiopian Intellect,just to Comment those of you fabreaking false acquisitions it will not help for Africa and Ethiopia.Because if the world is floosh similar to some of the unconscious ignorant protesters, the world would have missed the brilliant person. But the world is of their scope,have the capacity to analyse WHO is WHO? I advise to those people barking in every world meeting to learn and get prepared to similar representations at a global level. If they keep barking, they will only generate in wanted sound which is a pollution and mental illness to them selves.
    God bless Africa and Ethiopia.

  24. Ittu Aba Farda says:

    Now this man is assured to be the director general of the most important units of the UN. It is even more important than the Security Council because it is charged with safeguarding the health of the world population. It is responsible for stopping the most virulent epidemics before it spreads. Such calamities caused by the Spanish flu outbreaks of 1918 and the Black Death of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries must(underlined) not happen again. That is huge. And I like his making of universal healthcare coverage a priority. He may come here to the USA to appeal for such coverage. Then what are some of us going to do? Go out and protest? That would show immaturity. I have said this a long time ago and I was called a Woyane for that. I said that he has the qualifications and he was a late comer to the regime. He was educated during the Derg era and he was a loyal employee at one of its ministries. And when I read the news that the Clintons and Gates had endorsed him followed by the entire AU, then I knew it was a sealed deal. The Gates are doing a commendable charity work in the old country and they must have noticed what the health ministry under this man was accomplishing. And I did my own research by asking some of relatives of the Itu clan. I remember when I was a young boy where one of my cousins died during child birth. We lost her and the unborn child on the same day. That is because the nearest hospital was days away. Now there is a large clinic at the location that is stocked with nurses and medicine to deal with child birth. As much I despise the Sebhat Negas and Meles including the other 10 modern day ‘emperors’ of each regional state et al…in all. But I had reservations about this man’s candidacy for this job. Unless the opposition gets off wholesale ‘Woyane’ this ‘Tigre’ that, it may not cut the mustard until the hell freezes over. It should embrace the fact that there was legitimate historical reason for the birth of ‘Woyane’ phenomenon. Whether we like it or not, whether we accepted or not, most of our Tigrayan brothers and sisters have a legitimate reason to huddle around the TPLF. They have paid in blood and sweats to maintain it. Sebhat Negas and Meles in all had intelligently exploited the dire situation the whole Tigray was subjected to. These two were extremely intelligent people for what they set out to do. They created a very disciplined front that nobody was able to beat in the battle field. They created EFFORT that grew into a financial juggernaut. When they rolled into Addis(Finfine) they went there with deep pockets. That was the fact. EDU, ELF, EPRP and OLF fell by the wayside one by one. There was no strong opposition to challenge them. And the opposition continued to provide all the help they need by splintering along stupid lines. Every time anyone in the opposition utters ‘Woyane’ this and ‘Tigre’ that, it has been a god send battle cry for the calculating Sebhats and his ‘class’ theory graduates. We all remember the late Meles comment about Radio Rwanda-RTLM scare all that. The opposition should realize that they are not dealing with mooncalves like that demon Mengistu. It should denounce violence and find ways how to bring more people from Tigray in its fold. It should stop from saying anything derogatory that would antagonize them. It should not deny the glaring facts on the economy and development side. There is a reason why the current Prime Minister is invited to the G7 Summit. This is happening in the midst of the EU Parliament hounding the regime for an independent investigation into the mass killings of peaceful protesters in 2015 and 2016. I suspect my saying this may incense some folks out there. Isaias operatives and his sellout faceless elements among us were up in arms calling me all kinds of names. They called me a Woyane supporter and many of them even called me I am a Woyane myself even though they know very well that I decried about the despotic style of governance by the regime there. They know that very well. But when it comes to the other demon in Asmara, Isaias, my scathing comments about him is unflinching, universal. That is the one that roiled them. Then his operatives and their sellouts among us started ganging up on me. They used every filthy and rude term to insult me. That has been going on all along now. They want me to shut up and go away. But what they failed to recognize is the fact that this septuagenarian is as stubborn as an impossible mule. Even some among us have picked up the rude culture of Isaias’ modus operandi and have turned eyal-al-souqs just like him. I will keep writing on this website until the dear editors tell me to stop and go somewhere else.
