Public uncompromising on nation’s survival!

The news emerging from some parts of Ethiopia is stocking apprehension over the country’s political future. The actions of a handful of narcissistic and myopic compatriots are fueling conflicts and tension.

The sins of political duplicity

Decades have elapsed since the art of sowing ethnic, religious and other divisions among Ethiopians while claiming to champion their interest has been a hallmark of the elites of the country.

Breaking the cycle of violence!

The alarming frequency with which intercommunal conflicts are occurring all over Ethiopia is perhaps the single greatest threat to the continued existence of the country as a functioning polity.

Setting clearly the boundary of accountability!

The constitution of Ethiopia unequivocally stipulates that any public official or an elected representative is accountable for any failure in official duties. The reality on the ground cannot be further from this though.

Dumping old-fangled practices posthaste!

The 21st century is characterized by an exponential growth in technological progress. Incredible minds are introducing or innovating exciting technologies which make life easier and more convenient.

The sins of distorting history

History is an embodiment of the heritage of a nation’s people that is passed down from generation to generation. It is manifested in nation building, the defence of national sovereignty, the expansion and demarcation of territory and numerous other forms of interactions at various levels.
