ELECTION 2015 WILL BE PEACEFUL, FREE, FAIR, DEMOCRATIC

AND EXEMPLERY TO AFRICA

Yohannes Gebresellasie (Ph.d)

In any nation where democratic process is the norm, it is normal for different political parties to contest for political power. Within that process, Political power is held only through peaceful and democratic ways and means and not through anarchy or violence.

Countries such as Canada, India, Britain, etc. are well known for advancing issues such as democracy, good governance and the rule of law; and their population benefits as a result of those democratic values and norms. In countries such as those mentioned where democracy, good governance, and adherence for the rule of law is the norm, political power is contested through peaceful and democratic ways and means. In countries such as those mentioned where democracy, good governance, and respect for the rule of law is the norm, political power is contested only through peaceful and democratic means. Destructive illegal and violent activities thus give their unpleasant time to legal and constitutional activities. As a result, people become more and more sophisticated and adopt peaceful and democratic means to solve any problems they might be confronted with. Dialogue and tolerance thus become the order of the day. Peaceful and democratic means help people to get closer and closer every day and as a result, our world becomes a global community of a civilized world. Read more

INSPIRING PEOPLE - TRIBUTE TO THE LATE PRIME MINISTER OF ETHIOPIA: MELES ZENAWI

By Yohannes Gebresellasie (Ph.d)

The renowned musical legend Mahmood Ahmed has a very good song: it goes like this: “balem Yeminorew Hulum Ekul New way Andu Kandu Fetur yeleyay yelem wey…” We all are created equal irrespective of race, color, religion or any other personal backgrounds; however, we also posses different characteristics, different ethical and behavioral manners, norms and personalities. As a result we also differ from one another in those and other characteristics due to our different socio-economic, cultural and environmental upbringings.

Ethiopia: Sinking In Debt? Far from it

by Daniel Berhane, Hornaffairs.com

Recent news on the size of Ethiopia’s external debt has shocked many and stoked a debate on debt among Ethiopian netizens. If we make a list of issues that routinely popup in the fast changing social media cycle, the concern over Ethiopia’s “burgeoning debt” would be one of them.

Ethiopians’ concern over the debt burden is bipartisan, a rare scene in a polarized political climate. Partisan lines start to emerge on the scale of the concern and the manner in which it is expressed. The level of trust on the economic leadership of the government, the source of information and understanding of the debt data explain much of the difference. However, it is hard to miss an overblown rhetoric, one that smells more of a political fear-mongering intended to pile on existing misconceptions. It is about time for an informed dialogue as we gear up to Ethiopia’s maiden bond issue (i.e. more debt) on international capital markets next January. Read the entire article here

Tendaho Sugar Factory at a production test stage

 As part of the five years growth and transformation plan, Ethiopia is currently building ten sugar factories. Tehndaho sugar factory, located in the Afar region, is one of the largest ones - expected to produce 619 thousand tons of sugar annually, has finalized its first phase and began test production. At a ceremony held recently, factory workers as well as members of the surrounding community were overjoyed seeing the sweet test, in all its literal and metaphoric meanings,  of the new mega project.
