Ethiopia, Long Mired in Poverty, Rides an Economic Boom
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — The bulldozers, tractors and cranes are busy day and night, paving new roads, building tall glass buildings and constructing a new light rail system to stitch together the city’s ends...[...the argument "democracy or development" is a false misunderstood argument when it comes to Ethiopia. In Ethiopia where abject poverty is strangling the people democracy is translated to food self sufficiency and a better tomorrow--hopeful country to live!. Ethiopians are living in a hopeful country and every day becoming self sufficient. Therefore, though people show contempt with the way things are in some areas, they are happy! What should worry us all is if the current bureaucracy and bureaucrats are ready to lead and manage the fast pace of economic development and all the demands that arise because of it.It is amazing most people we talk want to be come business owners! Such huge desire coupled with some of the means people are using to become rich are causing frictions with the government and its institutions everyday! The government wants to isolate the "rent seekers" and in the process some good and honest people are getting squeezed! Also, besides the issue with rent seekers, the huge demand by city dwellers all over the country is something to worry for bureaucrats and officials!]

Few years back we were delighted at last the majestic mountains of Adwa that helped patriotic Ethiopians to defeat the Italian invaders were to be developed as a tourist destination. To date nothing has been done in fact the flag poles erected at the designated park site stand stripped of anything! The mountains, thanks to the inhabitants and the work done over the years to rehabilitate the environment by the local authorities and REST, are lush and green ready to be exploited as tourist destinations! We can not tell you how sad we felt when we saw nothing has been done to-date with all the promises! . Even Yeha the ancient Ethiopian civilization site that rests in between these majestic mountains is a neglected site. The new ETO needs to clearly address such mismanagement and negligence of tourist sites around the country!

Egypt earmarks $2bn for S. Sudan dam project
February 27, 2015 (WAU) – The Egyptian government has pledged $2 billion for the construction of a multi-purpose hydro electricity power project on Jur River...[It is interesting Egypt is doing everything to stop the building of a hydro dam in Ethiopia but planning to build one in South Sudan! Egypt should think twice before tampering with the wetlands of South Sudan for short term gains...the wetlands are critical to the eco system of the region and the world at large!]

British support for Ethiopia scheme withdrawn amid abuse allegations
The cruelty of some of the western institutions that swear in the name of the poor in Ethiopia has no bound. HRW and others will surely laugh all the way to the bank when their sponsors award them for job well done but the poor people in Gambella gets nothing out of this except more misery! How can any one with sane mind oppose any villagisation in Ethiopia? The source of our people's destitution begins with lack of access to basic needs which villagisation solves! In any case we are glad the Ethiopian govt is not a banana govt. The main driving force for change in Ethiopia today is not external aid. With or with out(Bitsifrina) is the driving force for change in Ethiopia today!!
