    • bendo says:

      I admire him. He made money first by selling paper for $500.00 for doma ras diasporas by promising them he will change a gov. with in one year.
      Then when the game become expire he started ESAT and again using the 22 years experienced lemagne he collected millions again now
      the game is changing so he will collect money from Egypt or issayas telling them he will give them any thing they want by changing the gov. in 1 year.

      So you need to admire when you see smart leba. he is not using force. he only use his mind to creat lie and collect as mach money as he can and live in luxury life in USA.

      He is a hero who scarifies his time to do meeting in 5 star hotels and travel the world in first class plane just to help the poor ethiopian.

      • Chala says:

        Birhanue what up? Ethiopia iko work trillions .. why selling her for half a million.

        I thought you are smart marchant as your family and get the best price in the market.

        half a million is only pay your 3 month house rent. what would you do next?

        you should have wait a bit and negotiate with Saudi and others as well to get the best price to sell your country?

        Now ESAT will come out and say this sell is happened with the right auction unlike the Abay dam so people have to support it. as this is the maximum we can get in the market.

        • Sisay A says:

      Why do people need evidence that this guy is a hired agent alongside Elias Kifle , the Crazy professor Almariams , Shabia etc…
      To prove , just go to Meskerem Eritrean site and click Ethiopia ,
      There you have it .
      Ethiopian Review , ESAT , OLF , Ginbot 7 , Ethiomedia….
      What a joke .

    • Truth says:

      Poor Ethiopia!!
      .

      one after another, her own children chopped her to death. TPLF with help of Shabia strangulated her. She will stay on the breathing machine till her last day.

    • Michael Solomon says:

      It is very interesting to watch the woyane accuse this guy while they are still trying day and night to free themselves from the direct control of the lions of Nakfa…All the woyane shifta in addis have Egyptian passports as back up when and if they succeed their abay tigray manfesto. That is what Sudan is helping them to do. This is the number one mafia of the Horn Africa –

      God save us all…

      WHY ARE WE ALL SURPRISE WITH WHAT BRHANU IS TRYING TO DO? WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A WIRAGE MAN? THERE IS A SAYING IN ETHIOPIA “IF YOU GAVE WIRAGE MAN MONEY HE WILL LET YOU SELL HIS MOTHER”. SO, DON’T BE SHOCK IF BRHANU IS WILL ING TO SELL HIS MOTHERLAND ETHIOPIA FOR $500,000.00.

    Berhanu,

    You are the best.

  6. Ezana says:

    Rebels usually need outside support. The EPLF and TPLF have been supported by Egypt, Syria and some other Arab countries not only in money but also in soldier training, information and direct participation in battle during their war against the then Ethiopia (I prefer to call it just DERG regime, kene yiqir). What is surprising for rebel groups like EPPF and G7 to accept foreign help for their fight against what they refer dictatorial regime? How trustworthy is your source that says the source of the money is Egypt? and in what ground do you refer these rebel group struggle for freedom as destabilizing Ethiopia? Thanks in advance for your answer.

    • Gebre says:

      Ezana,
      You don’t have any evidence that Egypt was supporting TPLF. your comment sounds that you are supporting for an Ethiopian political force to recieve money from a country with an evil intention to Ethiopia.If Birhanu did this now, and let say he seize power, those who loose will follow his foot step. This will be the political trend in Ethiopia.

      • Gebre says:

        That means, we Ethiopians will fight each other forever. This serves the Egyptian elites’ interest. You have to know also that Egyptians will give you money not only for evil purpose but also with a mechanism to check weither you are using the money in a very distructive way to the extent possible.If true, Birhanu is going to be a perfect terrorist in all methods including using dirty money.

        • ilula Lemma says:

          What evidence you have Egypt is supporting Ginbot 7. WOYANE not only was getting support from outside source they were also a bank robbers. There is a documentary film that shows this fact PREAPARED by WOYANE ITSELF.

        • linen says:

          I have not heard anything about Egypt giving money to G7 on this recording so I don’t really understand the intention of including Egypt on these. I don’t agree with war I don’t want Ethiopians to fight each other forever but the only party responsible to stop that is the ruling party. TPLF did the same exact thing and G7 learned from it. Had they been democratic this kind of trend wouldn’t continue so who is more to be blamed here? You can’t make enemy with the people you try to rule and expect them to sit watching you eat their share forever. At one point ‘Demanding rights by any means necessary will come into play. Sad to hear this but Well come to Politics 101 where there is no Freedom.. instead of using this kind of stuff for political gain I suggest we discuss why we got here and how we can stop it. Another thing this Audio revealed is that G7 is not just sitting. You guys actually promoted how much they have gone deep….. it looks to me they are getting their stuff together.

          I agree with you Chris! as you mentioned there is no evidence that Egypt was supporting to TPLF. Izana and other sharing his comments are black gassing. So please back and read the real history of TPLF.

  7. Dr. Bargaining Cheetah says:

    Egyptians already offered the job for all anti-ethiopia elements to use them as “Bargaining Chips” against the government.

    Therefore, Dr. Berhanu Nega is a Bargaining Chip.

    Dr. Berhanu Bargaining Chip-Cheetah is the leader of bloody agent Gim-bet-7.

  8. ABC says:

    Very sad in deed! As I understand from his statement, he has no actual forces of his own out in the field. Yet, he is trying to use the life of fellow Ethiopians of Arbegnoch et al for just his objectives. This is Opportunism at its best! I can’t still believe he is mobilizing “ganta” to sabotage facilities obviously in ethiopia. Really disappointed!

  9. dr birhanu says:

    fuck birhanu nega fuck egypt and fuck esayase aferke also u cannot stop ethiopia from nothing.u r a gar birhanu nega they give u money n they fuck u,cannot touch ethiopia.

    • adisu says:

      You used a stupid word that is not expected from an Ethiopian citizen. you seems nervous of the strength of Ginbot7 and getting the acceptance of many. Don’t hesitate that Ethiopia and Ethiopian will be free from Gangisters and Shifta whom they don’t care about millions.

  10. leba says:

    Ethiopia is endowed with many types of bandas. I am now admiring Mengistu Haiemariam, the high school graduate was much better than this PHD banda. What does this evil man teach to the young for civilized Americans? terrorism? I am wondering now what is PHD? Woyane = Berhanu = bandas. These are agent of Sodom and Gomora for Ethiopia. They wanted to burn Ethiopia by fire. My wonder, why all these evilness for this short life on earth? what is the purpose ? Okay? you kill people and you get to Arat kilo? then what? you die after sometimes like Meles? what is their purpose on this planet? what is that there in destruction, revenge, terror? So you can it is United State government and Arab governments who creating and fostering terrorism. We accuse certain group of societies, like Muslims but the main agent of terrorism governments like the government of United State and Arab government. Innocent societies are being sensitized with terror by terrorist governments.
    Look, Berhanu Nega has a terrorism meeting with USA officials. What is this people? why are we humans so wicked on this planet?

  11. Tamrat says:

    I would really hope he will use the Egyptians for their money and not betray his country. Hate to the regime in Addis doesn’t make you collaborate with Enemies and against the interest of your country. What a scandal. The Egyptian politians were right to speak confidently about the use of internal forces to safe guard their interest in the Nile. Dr Berhanu please come back to your sense. What ever the reason might be the current regime in ethiopia is dying and no need to betray your country. Work with ethiopians!

  16. efrem says:

    ‘Mekshef Ende Birhanu’!!
    This is the harsh reality. Back in 2005, I was so interested in the then tv discussions among different political parties. I was telling my friends, unaware though, what if God bless us by merging the beautiful minds of Meles Zenawi, Birhanu Nega, Arkebe Ekubay, Bulcha Demeksa, Birtukan Medeksa, Lidetu Ayalew, Beyene Petros, etc. I remember many of my friends had the same wish. We were, however, unaware what we were saying. We were simply expressing our wish. We were too young and uninformed too recognize it will never happen forever!! I do still think though if it was happened, the outcome could have been much better. God knows!!
    Things went fast and we was able to see the different personalities via different glass. Out of all the personalities, I was so surprised by Birhanu Nega. A man without honor! A man who doesn’t stand for what he believes! A man who is selfish and arrogant! A man who doesn’t care for anything other than his reputation! A man who claimed to be the most intelligent! A man who dares to call his word as God’s word! A MAN WHO IS IN GENERAL SPAGETI!
    We Ethiopians have a right to support or oppose any party, but we should remember our moral values and be ‘nice’ to our fellow Ethiopians. We don’t need to justify the unjustified. Our support or opposition to any party doesn’t mean forever, we change whenever there is change. Whatever our political view is, we should care about the welfare of our fellows and our country rather that the cult of our leaders in both sides.
    Birhanu has failed for once and forever. Our politicians in either side should learn from Birhanu, ‘Mekshef ende Birhanu new yalut…’.

    Dear Awramba editor, Dawit
    I took off my hat.
    You are simply an enthusiastic and Genuine journalist who sniff the truth and inform the public. I am proud of you.
    You were telling us Ginbote 7 and ESAT were joined at the hip and some were doubting this fact. Here you have the evidence.

    ESAT and Radio of Ginbote 7 are partners in crime and a replica of radio mill colins of Rwanda….

    I would say this ESAT…

    Hi Dawit,
    Probably, I hate Birhanu nega more than you do but there is no a single word which can be an evidence at he received this money from Egypt on this specific audio. I know Birhanu is not good politician but you have to sort out your news to be conceivable by all people.

  20. A says:

    Dear Dawit,

    Thanks for informing us that something is going on to defeat weyane. The only sad thing is the fact that there are some traitors inside G7 who leak such kind of information; I mean, if the leak is not intentional on the part of G7.

    Are you afraid that when G7 comes to power it will destroy GERD as weyanes destroyed Tana Beles? I know you will not post this, as usual; so this is only for your info and to show you how disgusted I am, and many Ethiopians, in what you are doing.

    • Bex says:

      A,

      Only speak for yourself. Don’t speak for other Ethiopians. I am sure you would have loved to read anything that leaked from the Ethiopian government. Why would you get upset when it is your boss? Anyways, this is not the first time Dawit posted leaked materials. He did post a meeting minute from our gov’t officials before. So, don’t get upset by journalism. He is doing his job. If anything you should yell at your hero a.k.a Berehanu Nega.

      FYI, we all knew that he was getting aid from Egypt and Eritrea. We just didn’t know how much and how often. We also knew that ESAT is a tool to misinform the public, to use his words ‘to create enough doubts in the minds of many’. So, this leak reconfirmed that in a way he won’t be able to deny in public. Otherwise, if you are not a low information individual this is not news.

      I know for sure your age probably in the upper 50th.

  22. idris says:

    Very surpirzing, indeed!!!!!!!!!
    BRHANU NEGA has become the first beneficiary by recieving EGYPT’s
    “Sabotaging Ethiopia through its opposition” project.

    So, is he going to lead Ethiopia? which Ethiopia? Egypt do not want to see a strong Ethiopia.
    Morsi and and his messenger isayas want to see a divided ethiopia.

    This 500,000 dollar is meant for destroying Ethiopia, not for unifiying

    Ethiopia should take a measure by stopining the so called win-win pricinciple. The Egyptians never believe in win-win.The last more than 100 years the egyptians have sabotaged ethiopia by diifferent mechanisms; they never know win-win.

    Mursi and isayas know that the so called opposition can fight. the only hope for the two dogs is the ESATs propoganda. that is to inflict clashes between the people through tv propogand.

    But i wounder! Hove you seen how Berhanu wagges his tail infront of isayas to get the 500, 000 dollar sent from Morsi.
    shame on you berhanu. That is the end of your relatioship with the Ethiopian people

    Thank you awramba admin for sharing us this scandal by berhanu nega.

    Millions of Ethiopians are paying thier monthly salary (myself paid two months salary so far) and giving grants, buying bonds to see completion of the GERD, but Berhanu is conspiring against the dam with enemies, morsi and isayas.

    Shame, Berhanu the fooool!

    you are steel in your feudal brain you can’t tell the Ethiopian people what is good for them,they know who is for them & who is out there to seal them.

    • Ilula Lemma says:

      You spend your time with out explaining yourself. Cursing and finger pointing is the way morons express themselves. I am afraid to categorize you in that group.
      The time is not to divide opposition forces who want to bring peace and democracy for Ethiopia rather to help them to work together. We know where WOYANE get help when they were in jungle. Is was from Egypt, Yemen and some other Arab countries who want to dismantle Ethiopia. Open your eye and find the fact.

      • Yhchin Yiwodal! says:

        You don’t have evidence either! Okay let’s say you have evidence, do you agree or support that kind of mistake again? There are always other ways, as long as the thing you are doing is worth doing.

        Just to think out of the box!

        • IIula lemma says:

    Dawit!
    We all need to listen to the stories what makes us happy, not what is really said. If you listen properly, there is no mention about Egypt or ‘The Sources’ of the fund. May be you are reading in between the lines. I hope you read and respect the rights of the speaker that he has the will to choose the form of a struggle either peacefully or armed. It should not be regarded as a criminal offence committed against Ethiopia when he is trying to fight his enemies. He is a leader, and to achieve his ultimate goal (perhaps overthrowing the current regime or forcing the regime to put in place democratic reforms and justice) it is his right to choose a suitable and effective strategy.. You know very well that he is not a sinner than the ruling class. After all he is a politician, not a monk, and he has to market and sell everything possible on the way to power or democracy. On the other hand, please try to substantiate your claims in a professional and intelligent ways. The text you put up there just shows your personal opinion, not the truth. Have you ever though about the other side of the story? What would you say if the audio was released as a propaganda (as a psychological warfare) to scare the hell out of the tyrants? Do you think you exposed the deeds of the speaker? To whom? To the tyrants who made you flee the country (if that is true) or to the people of Ethiopia? As a journalist and You should be impartial about all sides then you leave the judgment to the readers. Thank you very much.

As weyanes had destroyed Tana Beles by Egyptian Government order. but Dr. Nega did not say about Egypt! even if he has received from Egypt to remove (colonialist Weyane) money comes from Egypt or America or Canada what is the problem, Dr. Nega is right to receive money from Satan to save his country.

  29. Abnnet says:

    There is no reference to Egypt in this audio. He repeatedly refers to “they, them”, most probably meaning Eritrea.

    My conclusions from the audio are
    1) As expected, G7 is looking for support from outside forces. I blame TPLF which caused the chaos after the 2005 elections for this state of affairs. It is not surprising that some have concluded that peaceful struggle is meaningless. [To some extent, this can be true. TPLF is simply unwilling to open up the political space for peaceful competition.

    2) G7 is seriously working to start an armed struggle. This can be good news for some, but for me it is bad! I don’t want my kids to live through the same violence witnessed by my generation.

    3) G7’s communication is seriously compromised. By the way, who passed it to you?

  30. Name (required) says:

    Huhuhuhuuhuu: i hate dr. Birhanu. he is a narrow minded wolf. I have never seen an idiot and arrogant like him. All Ginbot 7 people are arrogant and blood suckers!!!

  31. tatuu says:

    Dawit please be logical. you know why Dr. Brihanu choose this way to fight dictators. To free Ethiopia from these ignorant leaders , he prefers this way. He has his own reasons and experience to believe he is doing the right thing. Ethiopia is not only for Wayanes. You are also a victim this regime , so please be fair. And your suggestions, comments and news, as a respected journalist, should be constructive and be sure have some positive contribution to the struggle. I always admire you for the sacrifice you have paid for your country. When it comes to G7 and ESAT, you will be different. If you are not happy at them or if you see something seems wrong, just tell and convince your readers. Moreover,try to show the right way.

  32. Mario says:

    That what we were talking about! This guy is aligning with Ethiopia’s enemies just for money!

    Wow! look at this guy!Berhanu Nega , is one of these who couldn’t stand for what they believe like a men! He ran from mount Assymba with his legs touching his ears in the fight against woyane some 35 years ago , once again he ran to Philadelphia , USA during kinijit time abandoning the struggle that the Ethiopian people hoped for good!

    Now he has been aligning himself with Egypt (a chronic enemy of Ethiopia ) so to distabilise Ethiopia & for Egypt to live in peace !

    Thank you awrambatimes! You are sharpening yourself to be the best Ethiopian journalist of all time!
    Thank you for your information!
    God bless Ethiopia !

    • Abnnet says:

      Again! Where is the reference to Egypt in this audio?

      And, who has a documented record of working with Ethiopia’s enemies? Is it not TPLF which allied itself with Isayias and the “Arab World” to ensure that Ethiopia becomes landlocked?

  33. g says:

    Dr. Berhanu has the right to choose his means of struggle. If gets money from Egypt or Eritrea there is no surprise. That is the history of ethiopian struggle since student movement time. Syria, egypt, iraq, palestine and many others have always helped the opposition. Sad part is even when berhanu becomes PM he will face same problem. Our enemies will be the same while the actors in Ethiopia change from amara to tigre to oromo to gurage. The game changer real ethiopian will be the only solution. Thank you Dawit. This really hells me in my decision. Good to know. Silent majorities like me are the game changers. Ethiopia will rise again and no one can stop that anymore. TPLF, berhanu and all the others didn’t create themselves. Fighting their creaters is the real fight. Let them fool Egypt and get as much money as they can. In the end that wouldn’t mean any thing. This time we know what’s up. Thanks to my lord!!!

      I am sure Birhanu may be abandoned G7. ESAT and G7 will colassped soooooon or later. ESAT’s goal is to instigate civil war in Ethiopia. Idiots. ESAT=Mille Collins Radio of Rwanda

    Dear Dawit, thank you for coming up with this very important information. You are the only independent journalist I know so far. Ethiopia needs journalists like you. I hope the Ethiopian government allows your free, fair and responsible website in Ethiopia. I don’t care if the likes of ESAT and Ethiopian review get blocked because they are not responsible and they are full of lies, and the only thing the will bring to Ethiopia is destruction, but awrambatimes.com is a very responsible and non partisan website.

    Thank you again.

I hate when some one decide on my behalf . Even the video clip you posted is not clear and corrupted.

  44. Girma Kassa says:

    How come this audio became public ? That tells that G7ites are amateur politicians that has no idea what it means to be clandestine and secrative. How could one rely on this group, when their affairs are leaked and broadcasted like this …

    I remember once their internal meeting also was made public. That is point 1.

    The other item is on the content of the audio itself. There is no indication that the money came from Egypt. However it is coming from some country. Many of us surely will get to the conclusion that the money may be coming directly from Shabia. However would Issayas give half million dollars to G7 when he is in need of foreign currency himself? No way…therefore the money did not come from Shabia. Then from where ? Maybe Egypt, Maybe Saudi Arabia ..??? We do not know. It may good if Awramba informs us why he came to the conclusion that the money came from Egypt.

    Saying this, whether it is coming from Egypt or elsewhere, this news is very disturbing. When Semayawi, UDJ and others are forcefully working to mobilize the people back home, when ODF, ETNC and others are working day and night to unite Ethiopians in the Diaspora, it is sad, embarrassing and shameful to see G7tes, whose leaders were once the darlings of the oppositions, became fools that they end up sleeping under the dress of Shabia.

    FOR THEY HAVE BECOME A KEY PART OF THE STRUGGLE, I CALL FOR ESAT TO DISTANCE ITSELF FROM G7 AND REFUSE TO ACCEPT THE $200000. In one night more than 50000 was raised in Seatle alone. Ethiopians will support ESAT, as long as they serve the interest of Ethiopia. If they get money from Egypt/Shabia, they must not think that Ethiopians will take it lightly and consider them as an “ethiopian” media. It is better to be on the side of the majority and the people of Ethiopia, not few groups who lost their mind.

    We shall comment on this in detail in the near future.

  47. Meron says:

    Jawar Mohammad said the following in his facebook about this particular video:

    Had this ‘leak’ been from say OLF, the paltalk, DC radios, the blogs and the crappy newspapers back home would have been swarmed by Oromophobic rants disguised as ‘defending Ethiopia’. The hypocrisy of those who claim to be vanguards of ‘Ethiopian unity and national interest” is of absurd proportion. For most of 1990s and 2000s these same segment used to make a living by disparaging OLF as stooge of Shabia and enemy of Ethiopia. Yet since 2005, Eritrea has become friend and Asab, an issue that used be the rallying cry, has been dropped. Mind you, ethnonationalists don’t even swear allegiance to Ethiopia, hence would not be breaking any taboo if they take help from outside. Now let them eat this.

    It is no secret that G7 has working relation with Eritrea. The audio makes that explicit. Its so called armed wing is also trained in there. ESAT also never say any thing bad about Eritrea, and in fact it tried to white wash its human right record by bringing that disgusting woman. It is also a public knowledge that Egypt has always supported Ethiopian insurgents. It is also well known that it uses proxies to funnel the financial and arms support. During Hailesialassie and Mengistu, they used Somalia and Sudan. In the last 2 decades, they have been using Eritrea. Eritrea is as broke as the man on the street. Where do you think they get the money to host all kind of rebels for decades? So if Eritrea is helping a rebel group X, it means X is receiving the support from Egypt indirectly.

    By the way, the leak, more than the information it contains, reveals the lousiness of the security precaution of the organization under discussion and its leaders. For an organization that has avowed to over throw the regime through armed struggle, discussing such operational details over the phone tells us how much they care or understand about counter intelligence in such clandestine works. Those who want to lead armed struggle from safe heaven cannot even keep their mouth shut, hence put at risk the lives of young men and women who flock to them believing their words.

    This is a very serious accusation. It is up to the person to come out and refute or confirm this accusation, and Awramba Times should present more incriminating evidences.

    Hello Dawit, don’t you know TPLF and EPLF were armed to the teeth by Arabs to destroy Ethiopia. Dr. Berihanu didn’t say that the money is from Egypt via Eritrea. Even if what you are saying is true, so what? Read Ginbot 7’s rules and regulations. They clearly indicated that they will accept any help from any one, but they will not negotiate on Ethiopia’s future.

  53. Gezaee says:

    Dear Dawit:

    Every Ethiopian is running around for scrap including woyane. Woyane has been in bed with Egypt more than Birhanu Nega. I am not saying what the good doctor is doing is good. But who can point finger to whom? They are all the same. It is wrong only if someone do it, but it is okay when they do it.

    Dawit: we have to save our country from those who are raping our country that is woyane is the most rapist organisation that marginalized the Ethiopian population and it is raping the country together with Egyptians, Chinese, Iranis, Pakistanis, Indians,… you know Ethiopia, a poor country lost 11 billion dollars in the past 20 years? no country has been raped like this. I call woyane Mafia, worst than Mussoloni. We are just wasting our time talking about Egypt? but read the following Egytian asking to be involved in Ethiopian politics?

    My country men and women, you need to stop crying woyane, woyane, woyane, you need to put aside your stupid ethnic politics and unite the people by one idealogy. It is time to kick out everyone from Ethiopia. Woyane is a rapist banda organisation. I do not believe these rapists and selfish came out of the Ethiopian society. I call up on all Ethiopian and to make history before it is too late. I am warning you that you that this generation will be held responsible for allowing the country to raped in the 21 century. Our women are subjected to rape across the globe. Our land is raped by woyane plus its shareholders.Our water has been raped forever. We need to form underground movement now and remove the rapist woyane from Tigrai. The rapists of our country do not represent Tigreans leave alone Ethiopians. It is not impossible to remove this Balegewoch and asedabiwoch who believe in wickedness, corruption and nepotism and lawsness.

    This news is one more evidence that the jackals occupying the Menlik Palace are lying to the people of Ethiopia. Shame on those who are easily fooled by Woyanne propaganda.

    Three Egyptian projects worth $50 million will be launched in Ethiopia’s first industrial zone over the next month in an attempt to strengthen Egyptian-Ethiopian ties, according to the head of the Badr Investors Association.

    Alaa Alsokti highlighted the “role the economy plays in strengthening relations between the two countries,” and urged the government to give Egyptian businessmen and companies the opportunity to play a political role in calming growing tension with Ethiopia.

    The plants, owned by Egyptian investors and companies, specialise in electrical transformers, office furniture and medical equipment.

    Rising population, pollution and environmental degradation have caused increasing water scarcity for Egypt. The country is facing an annual water deficit of around 7bn cubic metres, with the United Nations already warning that Egypt could run out of water by 2025. Alsokti stressed that many Ethiopians are keen that the dam not worsen Egypt’s water situation.

    “There has been a significant boost in ties between us and the Nile-based countries in the past two years,” President Mohamed Morsi told the Conference on Egypt’s Rights to Nile Water this month, adding that there has been a 50% increase in trade, with Egyptian investments in Ethiopia now amounting to $2bn.

    According to a statement by the Ethiopian government: “The Nile basin has been tying the two countries and their peoples together for millennia.” It noted that while the river could represent a source of cooperation for the two countries, this has not always been the case, calling the issue of Nile water a “sticking point in the relationship, a major stumbling block to any sort of robust bilateral link that might have enhanced the interests of both countries.”

    According to the statement, successive Egyptian governments have sought to ensure their continued control of the Nile water, and because of this, it has not been possible to establish a strategy for the river based on mutual agreement, adding that upper riparian countries, including Ethiopia, for a long time suffered from a lack of sufficient resources to develop their legitimate claims to usage of the Nile water.

    “The policies pursued by Egypt on this didn’t help the confidence of the upper riparian countries towards this issue. There is a strong conviction in Ethiopia, which has been well-founded, that efforts have been made to prevent Ethiopia from accessing support for the purpose of obtaining the necessary financial support for hydro-electric projects, even where these projects would pose no harm whatsoever to Egypt.”

    According the Egyptian Embassy in Ethiopia, the Ethiopian government offers Egyptian investors exemption from import duties on construction materials needed to create new projects or to expand and develop existing projects. Capital goods may be imported without payment of customs duties and other taxes.

    The government also allows giving out loans to investors by Ethiopian banks and provides all appropriate land investment and infrastructure services such as electricity, water and telecommunications, provided that the investor meets the conditions and requirements of national investment.

    The TPLF government is receiving money from all sources around the world, why not Dr. Berhanu Nega and the opposition?

    As far as Egypt being the source of funding this time, the adage “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” applies.

    2 plus 2 equals 4, period. He is confidently talking about a resource that is going to be acquired pretty soon. Yes, technically he did not say where the resource coming from. But it doesn’t take an astronaut to understand that.
    =======
    Several years back when he and his father were building a big hotel in Addis, several families had to move out from their homes to secure/clear the land where the hotel is built. Some families had to move out with a mere promise of compensation for the homes they were going to lose. One day a few years back, my nephew happened to ride in a wuyiyit Taxi with one of these people. This person was telling his story to another fellow how Birhanu screwed him out of his home with a promise he never honored. The other person listening to the story asked “why did you trust him, you should have gotten your compensation before you moved out?” He replied “who am I not to trust a man who aspires to lead our country?”
    =======
    My nephew happened to be in that very Taxi, overheard things from those two people in this very unconventional way, was left with mind boggling questions about the then very popular Dr. Birhanu Nega.
    I relate to the problem of Dr. Birhanu and others for not having a political space to operate in their country. However, would that justify this torch the earth strategy? Would this unholy, unprincipled, at-any-cost path to power bring a justifiable outcome?
    It is another slap on the face for those who are genuinely committed in bringing a different perspective into our country’s politics.

      I agree with you in that the political space is very tight; and that is the reason which pushed some people to the “bush”.

    The committee for African affairs put the opposition parties roles bluntly. Most oppositions parties are destabilizing forces in Ethiopia for this reason the government is afraid to open up, some member in the commit said. I is true when we listen to Berhanu , who was a gust, conformed that notion. The problem in Ethiopia is not the implementation of democracy but how political parties engage in it respecting the rule of law, how each party can stick to the democratic principles in place. Any party in Ethiopia has to respect Ethiopia’s sovereignty. Genbot 7 does not. All parties need to stop using public up rising to come to power; doing so just create a cycle for each group when the other is in power

    • Abnnet says:

      The ast time I checked, calling for demonstrations is not trying to seize power through public uprising. Demonstrations were banned for 8 years! Is this your understanding of democracy?

      FYI: G7 was formed after demonstrations were banned by Melles.

    Nile can be a source of bilateral cooperation: Ethiopian minister

    Foreign minister Amr’s Ethiopia visit lifted tensions: Egyptian diplomat

    Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia to start negotiations on Nile water dispute

    EU’s Ashton to visit Egypt Tuesday to discuss Ethiopia dam row

    Ethiopia strongly believes that Egypt’s and Ethiopia’s interests are highly compatible and that the Nile River can be source of cooperation between the two countries, Ethiopian State Minister for Foreign Affairs Berhane Gebre-Christos said.

    The Ethiopian minister stated in an interview published by the Ethiopian Herald newspaper that the Nile water, if used according to the principle of joint benefit, is more than enough for all of the Nile Basin countries.

    “Ethiopia completely understands Egypt’s reliance on the Nile River water. We expect that Egypt will understand that Ethiopia has the right to use its resources,” he added.

    Ethiopia, according to the minister, has in the past lost millions of its citizens to famine and it is now looking for new ways forward.

    Ethiopia diverted the Blue Nile, a tributary of the Nile, in May as part of the preparations for the building of a hydroelectric dam, which if completed will be the largest in the continent. Egypt, downstream from the planned dam, expressed concerns that the completed dam will decrease its share of the Nile waters.

    According to the state-run MENA agency, Egyptian dam expert Alaa El-Zawahry stated in a lecture on Wednesday that the technical reports on the effects of the dam carried out by Ethiopia are conflicted and did not follow the standard procedures.

    El-Zawahry, who is also a member of the tripartite committee tasked with studying the potential impact on downstream states of the dam project, stated that Ethiopia failed to provide any proof that the dam will not harm Egypt.

    According to El-Zawahry, if Egypt goes ahead with building the dam, Egypt’s Nile water share will decrease from 55 million cubic metres to 40 million, preventing Egypt’s High Dam from generating electricity.

    “For every acre Ethiopia plants, an acre will be destroyed in Egypt because of the decrease in Egypt’s water share. Agricultural land in Egypt will decrease by thirty percent,” El-Zawahry declared.

    El-Zawahry ended his lecture saying that Egypt might approve the building of a dam by Ethiopia if it were to hold 14 billion cubic metres of water, which will generate more electricity than the Egypt’s High Dam. However, according to El-Zawahry, Egypt will not approve the 74 billion cubic metre dam which is currently in the early stages of construction, as it will diminish Egypt’s share of the waters.

    Egypt’s foreign minister visited Ethiopia earlier this week to discuss the issue with his Ethiopian counterpart. Reports suggested that talks were positive, and both foreign ministers have agreed to another series of talks to further investigate the effect of the Ethiopian dam on Egypt.

    Egypt has been trying to reduce diplomatic tensions between the two countries, which reached a height after a televised meeting between President Morsi and Egyptian political figures shed a negative light on Egypt’s stance towards the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. At the meeting, some political figures suggested covertly funding Ethiopian rebels to destroy the dam and other forms of espionage against the African state.

      This is the harsh reality. Back in 2005, I was so interested in the then tv discussions among different political parties. I was telling my friends, unaware though, what if God bless us by merging the beautiful minds of Meles Zenawi, Birhanu Nega, Arkebe Ekubay, Bulcha Demeksa, Birtukan Medeksa, Lidetu Ayalew, Beyene Petros, etc. I remember many of my friends had the same wish. We were, however, unaware what we were saying. We were simply expressing our wish. We were too young and uninformed too recognize it will never happen forever!! I do still think though if it was happened, the outcome could have been much better. God knows!!
      Things went fast and we was able to see the different personalities via different glass. Out of all the personalities, I was so surprised by Birhanu Nega. A man without honor! A man who doesn’t stand for what he believes! A man who is selfish and arrogant! A man who doesn’t care for anything other than his reputation! A man who claimed to be the most intelligent! A man who dares to call his word as God’s word! A MAN WHO IS IN GENERAL SPAGETI!
      We Ethiopians have a right to support or oppose any party, but we should remember our moral values and be ‘nice’ to our fellow Ethiopians. We don’t need to justify the unjustified. Our support or opposition to any party doesn’t mean forever, we change whenever there is change. Whatever our political view is, we should care about the welfare of our fellows and our country rather that the cult of our leaders in both sides.
      Birhanu has failed for once and forever. Our politicians in either side should learn from Birhanu, ‘Mekshef ende Birhanu new yalut

      • Hanna Terefe says:

        Am with you on this man/woman! Birhanu is a failure. I wish he knows what most feel here about him.We have moved on…we believed his lies and voted for him once but not anymore..teftenewal…behagerachin yetetefa meliso ayibelam…….He is not just a failure as a politician, HE IS A FAILURE AS A MAN, AS A HUMAN BEING..

    Dear Dawit,
    If you remember back in 2005, one of the parties who had been elected and even took landslide in Addis ababa’s election was Kinigit. one of the leaders was Dr. Berhanu. Addis Ababa people Elected him unanimously. He passed 18 months in prison. So far no Ethiopian label him as a traitor. After getting out of prison he formed G7 and preferred all forms of struggle to overthrow woyane. As far as I know and as soon as you arrived here you interviewed him at his home and posted on your site. he was your guest. Then honestly,
    – what is the latest problem you
    developed with him? I think probably
    personal.
    _ Regarding ESAT, we the viewer are true witnesses. we do not see any problem with ESAT that has been done deliberately. As a beginner they may make some errors. that is expected from a new media. you know the stand of most ESAT journalists and you were together back home. Now, What is your problem with ESAT? Is it personal? As far as we the viewer concerned we support them, encourage them. It is the first opposition media that is able to reach Ethiopians in every part of the world including Ethiopia. don’t you see the fund raising Ethiopians are conducting in every part of the world? do you think all Ethiopians are fool or idiots and you only the smart man? ESAT as far as most Ethiopians outside and inside agree, is a media that tries to give valuable and true information so that we know what is going on. Why you hate them? I believe you have the right to hate or like them. But character assassination is the worst crime. If you think they do not report correctly, you can confront them as a journalist not as
    green eyed. I do not understand what you are doing. shame on you.
    Regarding Dr Berhanu nega, you said on the video he is a fugitive terrorist. come on Dawit, this is the word of woyane. how you missed the definition of terrorist? Dr berhanu is a professor in one of American Universities. If he is a terrorist, How can he be a professor in this university? did you get his name on the terrorist list by USA? Dawit come to your mind, this is base less incrimination. you may differ in your political outlook but falsely accusing people is not expected from the one who considers himself journalist.
    you termed him as traiter. Dawit I am telling you, I did not read in Ethiopian history that says a single Gurage was a traiter(Banda). I read about some others. I do not believe he will compromise Ethiopian Interest. Never.
    regarding the money on your video you could not mention any evidence whether from Eritrea, Egypt or any other. In my opinion, to liberate Ethiopia from woyane,he can take from any body.
    What do you mean by destabilizing Ethiopia? Is Ethiopia stabilized now by woyane? do you mean destabilizing woyane? why are you here brother Dawit? If Ethiopia is stabilized and comfortable to Ethiopians what do you do here? I think you asked asylum in USA because you could not live under woyane back home.(of course if you are not double agent). When you fight to overthrow a certain regime by all means destabilizing could be strategy. destabilizing has a broad meaning Dawit.
    Let me ask you some questions.
    Who Cooperated traitorously with shabiya to secede Eritrea from Ethiopia? it is woyane
    Who had been helped by egypt to dismantle Ethiopia? Shabia and woyane. It is realy astonishing that when woyane and some woyane supporters say oppositions are with Eritrea. Who was the horse of shabiya? who made Ethiopia land locked? Woyane and shabiya. How was Tana beles dismantled? By order of Egypt and the performer was woyane.
    Dawit, Berhanu is named by you and woyane as terrorist. It is funny, the time you named him terrorist, he was at congressional hearing as a witness and panelist at house committee on African affairs. Then Dawit, How a terrorist is selected to give witness on American congress?
    I can conclude that you are becoming the vanguard advocate of woyane. Because the way you are performing is realy, if you can, dismantling opposition camp and strengthening Woyane.

    Eventhough I had the feeling that there is something big time fishy about G7 and ESAT I had given them some benefit of dought, just for the sake of having an “opposion” to the current regim in Ethiopia, but this Audio is just shoking!!!

    We must admit there are people who pray nationalism when they mean their own ego and benefit. People who never care to send young and innocent people to fire while seating in the comfort of a 5 star hotel in America and Europe just for their own political and whatever aspiration are just evil!!! G7 and ESAT are evil! If it were for them Ethiopia would have been a place like Syria and Somalia at the same time. They are waging war not against the Ethiopian regim, they are waging war against Ethiopia!!!!

    Very bold and heroic move from Awrambatimes! Thank you! With piece of truth you may have saved lives!!

    • germognal says:

      peacemomoments,

      What do you mean this is shocking; where do you think Dr. Berhanu Nega’s organization should get its funding from? From the TPLF?

  67. Joe says:

    Berhanu Nega did not study economics; he just loves money,finance,glory,power and authority. The saddest part of this episode makes me to believe that if you love money (like Berhanue Nega)you will undoubtedly sell the Lord, Jesus Christ for $30.00 dollars; exactly, as Judah did it during his period.
    In conclusion, I had great respect for the learned, but I have now more respect for the ignorant who can fulfill his/ her duty when motherland needs any major task.

  68. peacemoments says:

    For those who argue that TPLF also used to get support from Egypt, evenif that it true, you are telling us that G7 and ESAT are not any better than TPLF, actually you are telling us they are worse, since G7 and ESAT cannot tell us that they didnt knew the sole long vision policy of Egypt to keep Ethiopia weak strategically for as long as possible, be it by supporting groups like G7 and ESAT to perpetuate unrest and if possible civil war in the country or be it by counter displomacy and financing anything thing that damages Ethiopia economy and image. There can never be any justification as Ethiopia to be part of this.Believing and argueing they are doing it interest of the Ethiopian people is at best thinking all people are dump like them or they are the wolfs cloaked in sheepskin. They are anti-Ethiopian and against the people from who they originated.They are strategic cancers of the region as a who and must be exposed further. Peace for Ethiopia and peace for the world!

  69. henock says:

    Berhanu is the perenial horse trader who served woyane until they drove him out. The sad thing is his blind followers are still worshiping him not knowing that he is their nations enemy. When you think of Berhanu you have to think of his collaborators such as the nutty professors Mesfin woldemariam and AL-Mariam, a man with no any knowledge of real Struggle except scribling pages of shallow ideas that we heard about long before he was born into politics as his pass time.

  70. Maru says:

    Egypt through Egypt is financing Gruops to destabilize the region including Al shabab in Somalia and OLF and ONLF in Ethiopia and now ESAT and G7.The UN security councle had put sanction on the regim in Erteria for supporting these anti peace groups, but they are still carrying on their activities. What is Ethiopia’s deplomacy doing? Ethiopia should call for further sanction against Ereteria and Egypt. The Bank accounts of the terrorist financed groups like G7 and ESAT in America and Europe should be frozen! Ethiopian deplomacy wackup! Need to do more. There is no more proof than catching the devil itself talking.

  73. Meron says:

    Last month, the moron Egyptian politicians broadcast a live TV conversation that they will keep distabilzing Ethiopia. It was good because many ethiopians were able to know the plan of Egyptian politicians.

    Today, this leaked video from Berhane Nega has given an alert to many Ethiopians. There were controversies that ESAT is not Ginbot 7’s mouth piece, but Berhanu proved it by himself. Berhanu also openly told that Ginbot 7 popular force is his armed wing, and it is not in agreement with EPPF, and other parties in Asmara. More than all of these, this leaked video has clearly showed Eritrea gets money from Egypt, and then Eritrea gives it to Ginbot 7 of Berhanu Nega to creat havoc in Ethiopia.

    All in all, a very important video that will shape the politics of ESAT, Ginbot 7, and oppositions in general.

  74. abiy says:

    Man this Doctor has gone criminally insane. How would you justify taking money and instruction from Eritrea and Egypt and twist it somehow to say you are serving the best interest of your country, Ethiopia. I am sorry I am not that mad or stupid. In fact, I am not sorry I am proud that I am not that mad or stupid.
    This is the best ‘leak’ in Ethiopia political history and will, if you are anything like me, put you off the cult like criminal outfit that is G7

    • aradaw says:

      Hello Abiy:

      It is very simple if you know the history back from the 1970. TPLF did the same took money and support from Egypt and other Arab countries (I am sure you know this) and came to power to obliterate and destroy the country Ethiopia, they did sever damage with Egypt money and support. did you know Dr. Berhanu was in the group with Meles early 1980.TPLF was and is cult like criminals (using your own word that perfectly defines TPLF). You say “taking money to kill your brothers, this is laughable. Our people were killed with Egypt and Arab money in the early days of TPLF and know they kill our brothers using our own money or donation money from International Organizations.

      • abiy says:

        Black is white. I refuse to be that twisted or stupid.
        My logic;
        1, There is no free lunch. You can’t take their money but refuse their agenda. As the Doctor says in the audio they appear to have been a whole day worth of going through ‘an’ agenda. Sounds to me like he was there sharing his project proposal with his ‘investors’ and getting his marching orders.
        2, Eritrea and Egypt do not have Ethiopia’s best interests at heart. Quite to the contrary they mean to do us as much harm as they could.

        Therefore it is entirely illogical to reconcile working with monies from these people and serving the best interest of Ethiopia.

  76. denta says:

    I pay more attention when a message carries character assassination. He may get funding elsewhere but when Awramba/Dawit calls Dr. Birihanu as Ramirez Sanchez, I feels that Dawit is being irritated by what Dr. Birihanu is doing. Dawit, you have a very troubling problem when you resort to insulting and name calling. Professional journalists do not do that. If you have problem with him, call and tell him what you want to say.

    He hasn’t killed anyone and was a victim of repression as you used to say yourself as you were too. If that is the case, how do you call those who killed innocents.

    That said, some in the current regime just fear him/his move. I do not know this person physically and do not believe he will liberate Ethiopia from US. But once again, I point on your way of presenting people that you have personal problems. It feels and smells that you have problems with him and ESAT.

    Abandon this feel and for sure you will be successful in you profession. If you are jealous, I assure you that you will never grow by yourself unless your are supplemented by someone else who may use you for their political end.

    Stay neutral and report whatever subject. But stop being personal as that is trash.

    This is good news ”And GANTA yemihon yemejemeriawn zur entin yemiaderg….” birhanu has now gone to a more deeper sleep and his dreams are getting deeper as well. This audio is obviously recorded while he was halusnating and dreaming he was in the battle field everybody shouting birhanu!!! Birhanu!!! And then he ends his dream with a Kilo of Kurt Siga at his table with Tej while he is wearing his crown on his majestic chair at ARAT KILO…..But wait something wakes him up from his sweet dream no no it can’t be he is not at ARAT KILO for sure his ugly bold head and his fat jelly belly still there, And he sees on the news Abay Dam construction is completed ( year 2016). And he went to google how many casualties in the war between Gibts and Ethiopia, only one GANTA that tried to mess with Abay. Then he finally rushes to his room and commites Suicide. Leaving a suicide note reading ” I SUCK!!” Poor birhanu poor poor birhanu.

  79. Garii says:

    It is suprising that people wonder by Dr Birhanu`s action.This is a commen practice to solicite help to fight your enemy. If it is true, it shows thier diplomatic skill to convince others to support them. He has to be appreciated not condemed.I believe Awramba has also recieved some considerable amount of money to record and expose the secret conversation. May be they are gruage against ESAT to get finance ( it is part of business competetion).

  80. sami says:

    what are you talken about dr. Birhanu? Hearing such types of news is jocking. You can’t never & ever Ethiopian PM b/c you hate ur country progress. What ever eritrea & egypt did now & then will continue our development. Dr. Think twice Pls don’t be idiot & arrogant. What are you did for ur country? To be things posetive think posetive….

  81. Abay Yigedebal Gendefta says:

    This is a storry that has evidently demonstrated Birhanu chelama, the Lucifer face prostitute, posing naked to give a lap dance for his egyptian and eritrean patrons. Dr. B, did he say his name is? I don’t think so. ” Dr.”! No way. I have never come across any information indicating there is a discipline called idiocy, If there is one, then his Phd. is perhaps in idiocy and he is just miscalled Dr.B for Dr. Idiot.
    Not too many people are surprised by Dr. Idiots’ acts but by journalist Dawit Kebedes’ ability to obtain the so-called secret conversation as authentic as it is. There is no question that this Audio record is provided to Dawit by an isider and it is a no brainer to argue or question the informant told Dawit or knew where the source of the demi-million dollar budget was coming from. Moreover, Dr. Idiot in his own words said, his patrons told him, it is to their interest satisfaction he strip dances and they throw the $500,000.00 tip in to his frog mouth and that he doesn’t need to thank them. “Strictly business.”
    I may also add to say there is no more room in the minds and hearts of Ethiopians to accomodate the poop head liars of shaebiya who pretend to be what they can’t be and to have what they do not have and also that Ethiopians will no more tolerate to the boasts and bragging of the clawns of alzawahri who day dream and wishfully think to twisting the arms of the Tigers and there by claim a Lion’s share of what doesn’t belong to them in thefirst place.

  83. Gezaee says:

    Who is to blame who?

    All Ethiopians are the same. No matter who is who. Woyane is still working with Egypt hand in hand even now. Ethiopians are treated as second citizens in Ethiopia. People from their land because they are Gambelans and because they are amhara?Their land is given to Egyptian investors. Woyane governments brings in Egyptians and give them money to start business in Ethiopia. I have never heard of Ethiopians given money to start business in Ethiopia.

    I have lived in many countries and I never came across a country that funds foreign citizens to start business.Egypt gives money to Shabia and shabia passes the money to G7 and others and with the aim to destroy Ethiopia.

    Woyanes goes around and invites Egyptians citizens to come into Ethiopia and gives funds them to start business to destroy Ethiopia? I do not see the difference between woyane and G7. Remember, when Meles was facilitating the separation of Eritrea from Ethiopia? Meles worked so hard together with Botros Botros Gali to make sure Eritrea gets its independence and Ethiopia get landlocked due to the fact the entire world opposed Eritrean independence including EU, the then OAU, even UN. But Botros Gali and Mr. Meles worked day and night to make sure Ethiopia is divided into two. What was Meles doing with Egypt then? It is just unfair woyanes supporters bashing others here as if they are not doing it. Why we do not see what we do? but why we see only what others do? Does woyane has permission from the Ethiopian people to hand land to Egyptians by removing people from their land?

    I do not support G7; I actually do not believe in armed struggle because it is an archaic means of struggle. First it is bloody and to cause too much suffering, destruction. I can understand Dr. Berhanu preaching about democracy while he believes he has to kill people to achieve democracy? I do not get it. I think he does not understand democracy. Remember, Mengistu Hailemariam was also democratic in his own eyes. Even EPRDF is democractic in its own eyes. I think education never change people attitude. You can Dr. is a scholar and a Professor of economics? yet, he does not know cost and benefit analysis.

    Did the armed struggle of woyane and Shabia bring more benefit than the cost? no, if we have to all the destruction and bloodletting caused by woyane and Shabia and if we see the benefits today? The cost of the struggle is 99% more than the benefit.The war waged by woyane and shabia brought too much destruction and too much suffering to the Ethiopian people. Ethiopians and Eritrea has to become refugees and suffer in refugees camps. There are still Eritreans living in Sudan for more than 50 years. They did nothing wrong. But they are victims of Shabia sponsored by Egypt. Who is benefitting? Are Eritrean benefitting? Are Ethiopians benefitting today? what is the benefit where you are considered a second citizens in you own country? Ethiopia is today where Indians, Chinese, Egyptians, Pakistanis, … enjoy but Ethiopians watch from the side while their country is being raped. No country has been developed by handing land and money to foreigners and treating its citizens as second citizen.

    In general, armed struggle is bloody one, expensive, takes long, destroys lives, destroys properties. Woyanes, Shabia used to destroy bridges, burn buses, burn schools, burn clincs, burn hospitals, kill people who do not agree with their agenda.They were recruiting the youth to be armed rebels and the youth has to waste their only life to kill their fellow men and women in the name of struggle.

    I do not believe in education now. As you can see Dr. believes he has to kill people to become a leader. I doubt very much Dr. Berhanu has what it takes to be a modern leader. A civilized leader, a man of the 21 century believes he has to kill people to become democratic? it does not make sense. Democracy must respect the sanctity of life including enemies. There are many ways to remove government without waging war and without destroying bridges, schools, buses, clincs, hospitals. In medical terms there is a medical treatment called invasive and non-invasive. The invasive medical treatment is called destructive because one will destroy part of the body while treating the others. It is like killing your enemies to get freedom for those whom you love? This is my area of interest in medical technology. The non-invasive medical treatment is a treatment that is safe and does not destroy the other part while treating the affected part. It is like removing a cancer cell without destroying the healthy cells in your body. Even in politics, we have many non-invasive political treatments to solve our problem without destroying lives and resources and wasting time.

    Dr. Berhanu is receiving money not from the enemy of woyane, but from the enemy of Ethiopian people. Egypt is not the enemy of woyane. It is the enemy of Ethiopian people. If you are working with the enemy of the Ethiopian people? for whom are you struggling? At the same time, when you take money from someone you have to give it back in the form they ask you to pay it back. There is no free money. When Meles Zenawi was working with Egypt, he was trying to meet their demands for the money he took from them. Good Dr. Berhanu, you are fall into a trap where woyane trapped in. You must have learnt from them than repeating the same mistakes again. I do not honestly see the difference between you and the current government.

    It is possible to remove the government in Ethiopia even in one day if you work with the people at home and if you are loyal and driven by ideology than by war mongering and revenge. Otherwise, when you wage war, your enemies will defend themselves and when to bulls fight, it is the grass that get trampled. When you and woyane fight for power, it is the Ethiopian people who will bear the brunt of the fighting. I had to live all my life as refugee because of woyane and shabia. I did nothing wrong except people came with violent means of struggle. Anyway, it is good to base politics on ideology than on revenge and vendetta. Politics is democracy and democracy is the art of rendering services to society. Killing people for whatever reasons is not services to any society but deservices. We can help our people without the sponsorship of enemies.

    There is a tradition in Ethiopia how to solve conflict or problem. In our culture people sit and discuss with respect ( wwyet). What we need is wwhyt. If discussion or wwyt does not work, the people have power to say no and remove the leaders even in one day.If there is a genuine cause that galvanize society, there is no need for armed struggle. The problem in Ethiopia is recognition. We do not recognize each other.

  84. Ande Ethiopia says:

    We all knew he was a terrorist for a while, so I am not surprised. What surprises me is the US government shielding terrorists in their backyard. They went all the way to Afghanistan to kick out the government because they were shielding terrorists that attacked America, they will do the same to others if they thought the same. But when it comes to others they care less, terrorism has one definition for them and another for the rest of the world. Terrorists that don’t attack them but others are activists, journalists, freedom fighters etc… Ethiopian enemies always failed and will fail and face the true justice from God. He will face justice for all his evil acts along with mengistu and his likes. His day dream will end soon.

  85. Kill Terrorist says:

    What is the difference between the so called Dr and Issayas? Once a terrorist always a terrorist.

  86. Berhanu Meshebti says:

    Berhanu Meshebeti!! , this video shows us how much this man is ready to exchange mother Ethiopia with Money or power. As the Government of Ethiopia is explaining repeatedly Ginbot7 is unvisionary organization that serve as SHABYA Messenger . His intention is to come to power with the expense of the innocent peoples of Ethiopia. If you were committed for the democratization of Ethiopia why did not you stay in Ethiopia as other opposition parties leaders have did. you are LEBA!! WUSHTAM…KetaFI!!
    Collect Money from Stupid SHABIA.and Egyp. but for sure you will do noting with that Money other than swallowing BURGUR and Katikala. Fesam!! we know you well ….you bark like a dog … we Ethiopians continue to Build our nation

    With out my Ethiopian/Eritrean brothers commedy like your’s and the honorable Dr.Birhanu’s life would be a tragedy. After a hard work day, you keep me going with humor and loughter. Some time the jokes could be irritating but usually I like them. By the way does Egypt still have a government? If they do, could they afford 500,000 $? The last I heard, they couldn’t even afford their energy cost that the suppliers were abondoning them and for a higher price and a deep debt the swiss traders are taking advantage of the moron Mursi. Glad to hear that President Isayas is laundering money from his death bed. Dr. Birhanu is doing good, yemoja lig, for himself. Ethiopia bekibir ena benetsanet leselealem tinoor!!! Amen!

  88. amare says:

    as long as the money goes for the down fall of the stupid woyan ,why not he collects the money from the davil. who cares.
    u should also know the tyrant woyan also harvested huge money and weapon support from Egypt, so what makes this new ?

  89. Mario says:

    denta

    G7 & ESAT are the worst Banda in the entire history of Ethiopia ! You heard that G7 & ESAT had accepted $500,000 to promote Ethiopia’s enemies agenda , therefore , to criticize these Ethiopia’s enemies propaganda machines is a duty of real Ethiopian journslist! I don’t call Berhanu Nega a human being , but a kind of robot made by a crude technician !

    You talking about repression as well! but your are trying to depress Awrambatimes’ right to criticize the way they want to!
    Nevertheless , let freedom ring inside you so you can criticize others!

  90. Ethiopia says:

    Congratulation Dev This is the Ming of journalist.

    Wow i didn’t know that ESAT stand of EGYPT SATELLITE TELEVISION

  92. aradaw says:

    It is interesting what Egypt did. It puts TPLF, and EPLF on power with its financial and other supports (not secret ). Now it is giving money to throw those it puts in power. Why are you complaining and crying. Is this about Egypt or Dr. Berhanu. He is doing the same thing (if it is true) what his former boss Meles and his cadres did. Dear TPLF cadres, stop crying, you are here with Egypt money that helped you to climb to power.Now comes someone to throw you out and crying and complaining in the name of Ethiopian, you are crying for your own “Zerefa” “Musena” corruption that you will be missing.

  93. Benyam Berhe says:

    Hi Brother Dawit did i heard your name from Dr Berhanu Nega ( Dr chelemaw cheleme) I am just kidding you are not that kind of man even you are oppose the Ethiopian Government. I think that is Dawit Weldeseyetan those people have been going a lot to dismantle Ethiopia as long as they get money from any one. Mr Dawit Let me ask you now question my question is not to be TPLF or EPRDF or Tegeraway or Ethiopian you can be any thing. that is I am but Ethiopia need you more than any time to do 1+1= 2 or True is True or false is false .you have a power to tel the truth like Abamela Who say that Amara and Oromo are big majority as long as I know in Ethiopia there is no majority people all people are equal .Like Almareyam ,east ,Andaregachew t,and others. yes! You can do it Dawit. God bless you and,Ethiopian keep up the good job

  94. Yantew says:

    Wow. Things are getting interesting. I womder what would be on the next part?

    • yantew says:

      Editor:

      I just posted this meesage to see if you would post it. Funny enough you did. All of my comments in the past which were critical of the GOE were deleted. Now I see where you stand! Good luck with your journey. You have a future in the censorship office. Goodbye!

  95. Solo says:

    Thanks tamagn beyene and Esat the first free and independent media in Ethiopia and in the world kkk

  96. Tazabi says:

    Folks, I know Birhanu Nega “Dr. Tirumba” and let me put it in perspective. I am sure he knows who am I as I have always addressed him as such. Briefly he is a phony politician and a person with a blind ambition and hunger for political power and definitely for money as his scrooge multimillionaire father is not going inherit him a penny.
    That said, he is a desperate bankrupt politician who is banking on his PHD which is foul Pile High and Deep s@#t. I have deep sympathy for his students who are “assumedly” learning anything from him as he has nothing whatsoever that he can share any thing academic.
    In a nutshell, he is a turn-coat, a traitor who aligns himself with the enemies of Ethiopia and no wonder that he is sentenced to death in absentia.
    Dr. Tirumba, enjoy your life in the West while you can, temporarily, as you will never set a foot in Ethiopia for the rest your life time. You are emphatically IRRELEVANT!!!

  97. zemere says:

    what do you want him to do? you want him to rob the bank in the day light like the woyanees when they were gurillas in teh bushes of Tigray? it is by far best choice to recieve money from EGYPT than stealing bank belongs to Ethiopian people

    • Genny says:

      Let us assume that What Awramba Times write is true, then it follwos that if the writer is a respnsibel and free journalist he has to contextualse this with what the TPLF leaders used to do while they are fighting against the Ethiopian Derg regime. That means if the issue is that Dr. Birhanu is negotiating ethiopian soverignity by working together with foreign countries the importnat question for any competent and neutral journalist is to relate this to what the TPLF leaders (with shabiya and and other foreign countries) to defat th opressive Derg regime. This howvere generally implies that Awramba times is run by some one who either is not consious of what he is doing as a journalist or he is the one who be dafault is operating out of ethnic sentiment.

  98. Comando says:

    Now is the time for the Ethio Gover’t to take a strong action against Birhanu nega and his gangs including thier family otherwise EPRDF Must be foolish.

  99. tamra says:

    Good job birhanu.go go go g7.we need more many

  100. Ethio says:

    If this website has an informant, and knows exactly the intentions of Dr. Birhanu’s conversations, then the should have provided a detailed analysis rather than publishing a minute information with no substantive explanation. Most people commenting here have sided themselves with the ruling party, and are biased on their comments. No supporter of the ruling party are dignified enough to talk about treason and corruptible behaviors as most of their own officials are committing suicidal robbery in the country. Who created the antagonism with Eritrea? Who has lumped any opposition as a threat? Is TPLF on power due to popular support from the majority or systematic brutal oppression? Let us assume, the Dr accepted aid from Eritrea, on what basis is that wrong? Is it because it makes the ruling junta members uncomfortable? Haven’t they done it on their times? Is this more deteriorating than the oppression of a minority clan? Is this a more treason act than dismantling the national pride of one nation, and misleading them into a dangerous politics that might implode one day?

  101. Solomon king says:

    Hello Meskin Ethiopians,
    you already spent 21 years. All EPRDF members getting richer, but they see you good for nothing. Whatever the case Abaye Gedebe is there today or tomorrow. Freedom from colonization from Bandas first wake up! Unite don’t waste your time. Stand with Dr. Berihanu or any opposition tells u unity. Don’t talk to much or don’t push back anyone and put you sleeves up for freedom of smart action. All Ethiopians needs to make records for all Bandas corruption property anywhere for history. We will form temporary transitional Government in diaspora soon then we will merge with local Ethiopians after freedom. Always God bless Ethiopia! We would like to say to real Ethiopian we will count on your help and effort to make happen. Thank you much! We need your help or pray for us to God our own citizen become enemy on us because of they love money then dignity.

    • solomon says:

      Berhanu has been saying the same when taking our money. We don’t have short of cyberspace warriors like u to tell us Woyane will be out soon. I don’t think u know Woyane.

  102. Gezaee says:

    I have given new names to woyane and Dr. Berhanu:

    1. We must call woyane after now Arab people liberation front ( APLF): reasons, APLF is settling Egptians in Ethiopian. APLF is relocating Egytians in Ethiopia by removing Amhara, Gambelans from their land. APLF gives money to its APLF from Egypt to start business. We now know why APLF wanted Ethiopia to be landlocked? we got it, it is because APLF is APLF.

    So APLF is Al-Woyane Al Arab, not Woyane or TPLF. APLF can not be Woyane.

    APLF supporter you need to repatriate to Al-Arabia. We do not need you. Even your APLF foreign minister TA is going to Egpt soon.

    2. Dr. Berhanu Nega: Al Dr. Berhanu Negaya Al-Egyptia, Al g7 Sevenya Al Freedom and Al Arab democracia, kkkk

  103. ednlk says:

    Awramba times, why go to so much trouble to tell us Ginbot 7 is working with Eritrea which we know. They have chosen that avenue and let it be. At lease they are doing something to bring some kind of change. You(Dawit) on the other hand is doing more damage to the opposition movement than good. I am beginning to believe you are an agent of Woyane.

    • Bex says:

      If the whole struggle with Woyane is the lack of transparency and freedom of speech etc.. Why give Dawit a hard time? This is what freedom of speech is all about. Let him do his job. Ginbot 7 shouldn’t be ashamed of what they do in the name of the Ethiopian people either. Please, start practicing what you preach.

  104. yohannes says:

    DR 0+0=0

  105. Asfaw Negash says:

    Mr.Dawit do you have an evidence where this sum amount of money came from EGYPT? I need to see the proof where the money transfers?I believe if this happened Egypt is really under attacking our country!otherwise Dr. Berhanu may get this money from his members and other fellow ETHIOPIANS for liberating our country . So I need the proof?

  106. Aba alem lemene says:

    For a long time I was trying to stay away form our counters polities. because I realize one thing a collective madness nobody listen every body is a preacher there is no listener. there is no lieder. respect, tolerance and objective thinking looks a history of the past. sincere love of you country is considered like foolishness. political and any gathering by the name of people become business for few. what is wrong with us? how are we preaching some thing we ourselves don’t practice. how money generation well suffer because of our impromptu dispute? for how long are we confined ourselves with hatred and vileness? for the sake of younger generations for the sake of mothers that wares about her child coming home safe. for the sake of a poor farmer how don’t have any idea about your polities. for the sake of a little girl collecting lives to feed her families. for the sake of shoeshine boy on the city street. for the sake of little girls how are going to river or pound to carry water. for the sake of the shepherd boy on the mountains. for the sake of the factory laborer how want to put food on his family table… work for a peace!!!

  107. sam says:

    In the last couple of day amny farmers have raised arms. Why don’t we make it difficult to raise arms in the first place??? Why don’t we tackle the root cause?? Make the people the king maker then no armed group will have public support. And why do you worry if they don’t have public support???

    Once a group raise armed struggle, you don’t have any moral ground to gudge whatever they do. If they have a good cause you can’t stop them. I don’t mind weyane raised arms and recieved money from Egypt. That was not the problem, it was the poletical system they implaned and the unequal economic opprtunity they created that upsets us the most. Why don’t you answer people question. Why don’t let people to criticize the government freely?? why don’t let the court to be independent? why don’t let free and fair election?? Derg was ousted not because of weyane bravery or cause but because of derg’s stupidity. if weyane continues this way G7 or other armed groups will easily oust it. FOCUS ON THE CAUSE NOT ON THE EFFECT.

    does G7 recieve money from egypt??? deg arege!!!

    People raise arms for their cause doesn’t mean they are against ntional interest. Egypt’s money can only boost their capacity. That is what weyane did!!
    Morons, jilajiloch

    having said that any armed group working in Eriteria will fail because at the end of the day shabia is shabia, and weyane is weyane. Weyane is the best choice for shabia than any other pro-ethiopia group. Egypt is not a big problem.

  110. Tekdem says:

    Good for you, Berhanu Nega. It’s a free world. Problem with too many Ethiopians is that they don’t understand freedom and independence – only slavery and control.

    Dr Berhanu, you struggle your own way, we’ll struggle ours. We’ll meet at the finish line.

  111. Amanuel Wesenie says:

    As we all know right after Morsi declared that “the Egyption blood is an alternative to a single loss of blood from The Nile River” and that all options are open, Isayass in his visit to Egypt before Morsi was overthrown by the military has not only gave a press statment “recognising Egypt’s right for the Nile and vividly supporting the 1929 &1959 unilateral agreements”. This ass kiss and ass lick blood sucker tick has been rewarded with money enough to jump start the destabilisation of Ethiopia but also to guarantee his survival. From where else all you dummies think this anti-Ethiopian internal forces do you otherwise think the sale-out Wellaita Berhanu’s $500.000 is coming from?
    The question in issue is the stability, peace and development of Ethiopia. And, Ethiopia must: 1. Never take any chances but rather strengthen the border security between Sudan and Ethiopia as wellas between Kenya and Sudan. 2. Arrest the leaders and participants and squeeze out all the information of who, how, from where and by what means did they get the money in Ethiopia and find out the name and address of the leaders who are hell bent to destabilise Ethiopia. That concerns at present the participants in Gonder and Wello as wellas the so-called Blue party and Negasso Gidada. They have declared war aganist their own country also under the pretext of religion (religion which is separate from state/politics by The Constitution). By keeping low profile and with an iron glove covered with a soft glove and in an active coordination and with a 24 hours vigilant activity of the Security Forces and The Ethiopian miliitary is what is needed with all the consequences it implies immidiately now :asap. In the mean time Ethiopia must officially complain to tthe U.S government to stop their citizen Berhanu Nega and others from attempting to destabilise Ethiopia.

  113. Asefa says:

    It is truly appalling to think that the pseudo opposition group would collaborate with nations who wish to see Ethiopia weak and divided. Ginbot 7 is not an opposition they are simply terrorist organization hell bent on destroying their own country. I don’t know of any opposition group in the world that works so tirelessly to destroy their own country. First “Andy” Tsige was on his way to Eritrea to collaborate with the dictatorial regime. Issaias has already attacked Ethiopia once in 1998 and funds terrorist organizations like Al-Shabab and other pseudo ethnic liberation movements in Ethiopia in order to create instability. Now Beharnu Nega has been caught collaborating with Egyptians who we all know is clearly upset that Ethiopia is building the largest dam in Africa on the Nile rive. Ethiopians can disagree but when traitors like those in Ginbot 7 are so desperate for power that they are willing to work with enemies of our country then they should be jailed and never allowed to enter Ethiopia.
