Fixing Ethiopia Requires More Than a New Prime Minister

SHAME ON YOU NETANYAHU!

By Hama Tuma
I wanted to write this article since last week but put it off due to lack of time.  Netanyahu accepted a UN plan to end the deportation threat on 37,000 African refugees and I almost abandoned the idea of writing this article. Thanks to the extremist consistency of the prime minister (who rejected the UN plan ) here I go with my article.

Charlatan or reckless?

For many Ethiopians, this is the season of the ultimate Dickensian Paradox. For some, it is the best of times, for others, it is the worst of times. Some are high in hopes, others are still shrugging their shoulders. Ultra-optimists are waving their, ‘a new leader for the new day’ placard, cautious souls are beeping their alarm lights. It’s a pandemonium par excellence. Until the dust settled and we start talking about things with certitude, better dealing with what we know.

THE TRAVAILS OF MOTHER AFRICA

It is not the first time that French presidents take to the stage to belittle and insult Africa.  Former president Chirac admitted that Africa was crucial for the existence of France, though he did complain of our "noise and odors". His successor, Sarkozy, the man who is beleaguered by a court case alleging he took millions from Libya's Kaddafi for his election bid years ago, said of Africa: it has not passed the door of civilization.

The trip is intended to promote counterterrorism, peace, trade and investment, along with good governance. ....... VOA

THOUSANDS STILL IN PRISONS AND LABOR CAMPS

THE  hue and cry about the release of a hundred or so political prisoners in Ethiopia has been proved a ruse as thousands of political prisoners including Moslem activists and the priests and monks of the Wadiba monastery, prisoners, including journalists ,trade union leaders and teachers jailed since 1991 as EPRP leaders and members, hundreds imprisoned in 1997, many more imprisoned for alleged membership of opposition organizations are still behind bars, in secret (ghost) prisons all over Ethiopia, in concentration camps like Zwai, Dedesa,Tolai,Awash Arba and Bir Sheleko,and in hell hole underground prisons in Tigrai itself.

THE FARCE OF "POLTICAL PRISONERS RELEASE" IN ETHIOPIA

The repressive regime in Addis Abeba is adept at duping international opinion and hiding the real reasons of discontent of Ethiopians. And it has enjoyed the support of Western supporters and donors in its duplicity.

THE FURTHER DETERIORATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN ETHIOPIA

Judging from the deafening international silence on the issue one can be excused for concluding there are little or no violations of rights in Ethiopia. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. The violations of basic human rights in Ethiopia have worsened in the last year with hundreds of dissidents killed, thousands jailed, torture  becoming rampant, freedom of the press trampled upon and a climate of fear and terror imposed.

In the last three weeks alone, many youngsters have been picked up in daily and nocturnal raids in Addi Abeba, Gondar, Bahr Dar, Dangla and other places.
