Dear Ben, I thought you were reading my mind with your commentary! In the first place Ethiopia "Kefeta" and Ethiopia "Tikdem" are awfully similar slogans. I am sure you know who started the later slogan-the Derge!
Second, even though I have no issue with any one trying to promote Ethiopianess and Ethiopia, I am at lost how anyone thought the current campaign is worth the money it requires to run it through! Also, I thought the Flag, Nation and Nationalities and Defense days were supposed to promote Ethiopia and Ethiopianess? Why more? Somehow I truly think EPRDF if not the country is running out of resourceful and talented people to take her to the next step!
In any case thanks for your commentary and hopefully lesson(s) will be learned. One think worth noting is, trying is not a crime thus I appreciate the fact that people are trying to promote Ethiopia in a good light. Zeru Hagos Sep 04, 2017

Indeed, for policy and decision makers, it appears that development is constrained to building and factory construction with little regard for their social, environmental and health impacts which will be tackled here under.

Awaze Youtube: On EBC Fiasco and Tigrai Gold Award For Land Rehabilitation!
Something is wrong at EBC! Of all media outlets EBC to commit such glaring error is unfortunate! That is, if it is an honest error! As for Awaze,... Gondar is a ctiy!
