Egypt, Sudan & Ethiopia to sign dam impact studies contract this week
Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia are set to sign the contracts with two foreign consultancy firms hired to study the impact of Ethiopias Grand Renaissance Dam (GERD) on downriver countries on 19-20 Sept in Khartoum, Egypt's irrigation ministry spokesman announced...
It will be very hard for the companies to do their work if the region is not at peace! What Egypt needs to do to help the companies do their work is to control or stop those Egyptians who are working hard to ferment civil strife in the region! If not it is easy for Ethiopia to play security reason to delay the study!
Ethiopia frees Muslims jailed after protests over religion
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia Ethiopia's chief prosecutor says the country has pardoned hundreds of convicts, among them Muslims jailed under anti-terror laws for opposing what they called government interference in their religion.
One hopes the latest pardon is not going to be undermined the way Dr Berhanu undermined the one before! The government is doing everything to make democracy work and a democratic Ethiopia emerge! The silent majority must acknowledge the govt gesture and rise up to deny extremists the space to undermine peace!
was also pardoned! The year 2008 is going to be memorable to Gondar!]
