    The government and their corrupt partners are not their to serve the people, but to use every available means and guns to kill to keep living in a stolen peoples property. they are butchers, they know only to slaughter any citizen who dares to ask liberty, freedom or democracy. The are amalgamated thieves at the helm of the great nation, their interest is to satisfy their huge and bottomless belly with stolen public resource and quench it citizens blood. They are not government but enemy of the people and this proud and rich nation.
    They sold their soul to the Arabs and their creators and money bag handlers. No one in Ethiopia expect this scumbags will bring peace and freedom to the citizens at large. it is not their nature. They are corrupt murderers who should be brought to justice by civilized world. Their must be no place for this criminals and scumbags to live on earth. They should be picked up from where ever they travel and thrown to jail so innocent citizens will see after all their is a civilized world that can bring justice and hope to all humanity.

    It is immoral just to be silent and an obligation of the civilized world to to arrest this despot leaders and their killing partners and freez their account that is enriched from their loots. Wher is wikileak and where are all good hackers. please hack and publish the despots and their partners in crime names and their banck account figures and its location and their care taker banks.
    God bless Ethiopia and true Ethiopian people and all good global citizens .

    Ethiopia will be greater than ever with the help and determination its good people.
    Ethiopians will build greater Ethiopia.
    Ethipia will rise and will have its place as the biblical great nations with civil liberty freedom and prosperity to welcome all humanity.

    This is about the latest from the IAAF meet in London.

    Did you just watch the 5000m final? If you didn’t, you missed the action, man. The young man I was rooting for ‘Barega’ kind of waned during the last 100 yards. But I can see they played classic competition. How about that lion Idris? I know what happened? The late heroes Yifeter the Shiter and Biklila had turned the twin turbos on his legs. Ladies and gentlemen!!! Bikila is incarnated!!!! Yifter the Shifter has been awakened just for this occasion. Those two naughty rascals!!! I could see them stepping on the accelerator and sprint with this young man to the finish!!!! I am good now!!!! I have calmed down now!!!! My old heart is back to normal with its beats. But that 17yr old kid will still be a force to reckon with in the coming years. I hope this heroic loss will not take a toll on his morale. He lost this race just by less than 3 seconds. I was also looking for that neighbor, Kifle from Eritrea too. He was only 4 seconds behind. It was a fight to the finish. What a tactic!! What a strategic race by the three countrymen!!! I am fixed with gushing joy for the rest of the week, man. I am good now!!!! Also hats off to the hero of all us Mo Farah!!! He put up a gallant fight to the finish. See you in the marathons!!!

    The elephant in the room noone seems to mention about is the alcohol , khat and illegal drug addiction that seem to be forcing people to become corrupt. Alcoholism is a long-term chronic disease in which a person has developed an unhealthy addiction to alcohol. It goes by several names, including “alcohol dependence syndrome” and “alcohol use disorder”. Any person affected by alcoholism (also n as an alcoholic) has a very high tolerance to the substance, is unable to use it in moderation and has extreme physical withdrawals without it. What is Alcoholism?

    Khat and other illegal drug addicts woaynes don’t care about grass one bit.
    Ethiopia: Gishen Pharmacy disputes selling drugs without prescriptions
    August 15, 2017

    Amakelech Lulu, CEO of Gishen Pharmacy .
    Capital – Gishen Pharmacy says they will publicly apologize if it is proven their pharmacists sold medicine without a prescription. An article in the Guardian entitled: “Inside the doping hotspot of Ethiopia: dodgy testing and Erythroprotien (EPO) over the counter,” which came as a result of a joint investigation by the German broadcaster ARD and Holland Media, suggests that it is easy to obtain doping products in the country and that the anti-doping agency tasked with testing athletes is disorganized.
    The writer of the article claimed that they bought nine phials of EPO were purchased at a cost of 2,430 birr from Gishen Pharmacy which is located around Addis Ababa stadium and no prescriptions were sought when the transaction was made.

    However, Amakelech Lulu, CEO of Gishen Pharmacy told the press last Tuesday that the company is trying to determine the validity of the story.
    “We have been in the business for a long period and we are careful about selling drugs to patients, now the Guardian is telling us we are selling EPO to runners who used it to get more energy but we know that we only sell this drug to people who have anemia, kidney and a heart problem when they bring a prescription from the hospital.’’
    A journalist asked Amakelech why they have spoken out about the issue if the pharmacy did not complete their own investigation.
    “We are not saying if the medicine was sold without a prescription or not, but the article put a bad image on us and I think it is right to defend our image when uncertain information is leaked to the media.”
    Amakelech who is the vice head of Ethiopian Pharmacies Association added that the Guardian report is untimely and may have a hidden agenda.
    ‘As they said ’ the report was finished three months ago but they made the article while the London world championship was being carried out which puts a psychological impact on the Ethiopian athletics team.’
    A statement from the Ethiopian Athletics Federation called the allegations on the doping “vague and unsubstantiated” and said that “none of the allegations as presented relating to Ethiopian athletes accords with our experience”.
    Currently EPO is imported from the United Arab Emirates by three importers.
    Previously ARD produced a similar documentary on Kenya and Russia.
