    this is a normal thing to do. Ethiopia in the right truck.
    ESAT tube who creates horer news from every thing done in ethiopia.
    I feel sorry sitting and talking gossip and critisizing the one who is working.
    Esat journalist pray every morning when they wake up any bad to happpen in ethiopia. if not it is easy just creat one.
    if this is journalism or free press then ethiopia will be ok with out it.
    people make money by working and others in esat tube live by sitting and talking lie.

      Please, Esat, Don’t create suspension among nations and nationalities. Our goverment is on the right track. Dear Esats, who is the great leader Mengistu H/Mariam,Hailsilasse, and Melese Zenawi? We remember Meles for successfully bringing Aksum tower to Ethiopia. Who did before like him. Mengistu is remembered long war and destruction. Hailesillase remember for maintaing slavery trade,Landloard statuesque, strivation,backwardness, dogmasim,Amarazim, Ortodoxim, Solomonism, etc. Do you rember why Italy came to invade Ethiopia in the early 1930? Itay said in Leage of nations ” In Ethiopia there is slave trade. Let me get ride of this in the 20s century” Itally was succesfull in eliminating slave systems in ethiopia.This is the black histry of Hilessilasse. Our goveremnts has the habit of keeping histry foot prints. After construction of the railway the monuments will be stalled. When I saw Esat they cry when our developmental government removes “Diroto’ clothes and replace the new one.The amazing point of Esat they support arm struggle. If arm strugle will come Ogaden will declare indepnednt, then Oromo follows, then South Ethiopia, Finally AFar, Amhara and Tigray following the path. Esat is endangering the unity of Ethiopia by covering the news of OLF,ONLF, and etc.The cold war is over. This time is the time of survival of Economic competency.

    Hi chala! I didn’t know such a ” Denez ” person still exist in this digital age; and illiterate about Engineering. No engineering work shall demolish historical sites and preservation! We all use our head before we say something , I wish you do the same if you have one. You are just acting….” Ye Ergo Zenbe..”—- a big black one……..

    • gashe_mamo_is_stupid says:

      Gashe Mamo, you are the ugliest person. you are trying to use some words to mask you stupid suggestion. digital world…. something like that. Look we Ethiopians will build the country, we are changing it we will not care haters speech, and stupid comments. Abune Paulos statue will be restored either to its original place or somewhere else where appropriate. We do not care what you fell, we will build the country! We are doing what we want! No one can stop us though you can keep saying your usual stupid speech

    Mr Gashe Mamo,You proof nothing by insulting Chala, the word you used will definitly speak about the author. It’s business as usual,and it’s temporarly. In fact the murder did not took place at that specific place,The exact place is close to the walls of the Ministry of Info.

  5. Aba Mela says:

    Will you please find out 1. the construction sites or network map, 2. The type of rain and the number of cars it pulls? Does the train looks-like the ones in San Jose, CA or Camden, NJ? If so, there wouldn’t be a need to remove historical landscapes.

  6. google says:

    U take a tale the whole ur descendant chala is saying what is actually going on komaxa!

  7. Badme Temelese says:

    Woyane is playing with fire. They are removing the statue in the name of development. It is time to Act today not tomorrow.

    A regime who claimed “We won Badme” can not be in any way be trusted in our heritage. Let us protect the statue of Martyred Bishop Petros from Mussoloni children, bandas.

  8. Tazabe says:

    What do you expect from banda children? They do not want to be reminded of their banda parents who participated in the war supporting Musoloni. They were rooting for Italy to colonoize our beloved country. Such is the permanent stain. They try to remove it by destroying the history of Ethiopia. Kuma cannot think for himself, as usual with the new Psudeo primier he takes order from the bandas to accomplish the destruction.

  9. Gashe mamo says:

    I know commenting back to all those disabled persons is degrading oneself. These Weyanne cadres have an IQ of below zero in double digit.
    In the name of development numerous crimes has been done to my country &its citizens. You guys are still clapping on the same rhythm.
    Why don’t you simply say ” we are the great grand sons of those bandas who murdered Abune Petros.”


    • loly says:

    Brave as he was, he refused to give up to the Italians and preferred to give up his life instead. Before his execution he put on his clerical robes and ordered his people never to bow down or submit themselves to their invaders. He was brutally murdered in front of a large crowd in the Abune Petros Square in Addis Ababa.After his death, Emperor Haile Selassie had a statue made for this great Bishop
