Genenew Assefa 01-08-16 - Who, in a space of three-weeks, flatly contradicts himself on a subject, no less, as serious as the fate of the Ethiopian government? The short answer is, Al Mariam, though he is not the only smart-aleck to flip- flop... [ Alas! Abune Aregawi not Abune Al-Mariam has heard your prayers all! TPLF/EPRDF is alive thanks to your prayers and Al Mariam prediction of EPRDF's death in the year 2015 was a false prophesy! The sad part is the learned Al Mariam may be blaming the not so learned Tamagne audio work for his failure!]

Donald Trump's first TV ad has a major mistake

We thought misrepresentation and out right lie of using images and propaganda materials were unique to the extremists we have from Ethiopia. Not sure if the extremists will be happy or not but Donald Trump has used images from Morocco as if it is from US-Mexico border for his campaign ad! Go figure! I am thinking if Trump has hired one of the extremist who has been churning gruesome images from all over the world as if they are from Ethiopia! [Zeru Hagos 01-04-16]

Freedom And Growth Management In Ethiopia
Ben Abeba is widely considered the best eatery in the highlands surrounding Lalibela, nearly 700 kilometers (435 miles) north of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, by bumpy road. The restaurant’s name is a fusion of Scots and Amharic, Ethiopia’s main language.

Aigaforum received an article dealing with potential mismanagement of public funds raised in Humera town as well as unnecessary delay of implementing public work projects. We asked the government of Tigrai to comment and they have done so. Below are the complaint as well as the comment from the government side. We are glad both the public and the government are serious in finding a remedy to some of the good governance issues. There are many local issues the government can easily address without waiting for a long campaign; although, many of the good governance issues will not be resolved overnight and needs long campaign! We understand extremists are trying to exploit such issues but we think the best way to deny extremists from exploiting such issues is to be open and be proactive always!
