Enough talking!

Ethiopia has been at a crossroads for some time now. It lacks a roadmap charting the path it should tread in the years ahead.

Hands off Ethiopia!

The situation Ethiopia presently finds itself has never been more troubling. The country is lurching from one crisis to another due to the inability and more worryingly the unwillingness to learn from past mistakes.

Reining in lawlessness!

The dearth of ideas characterizing Ethiopia’s political landscape has created a favorable condition for lawlessness.

Ethiopians have no spare country!

Ethiopia, the beloved motherland of all Ethiopians, is seriously ill. It goes without saying that a mother’s sickness worries its children out of their mind for they have no other mother.

Rewarding hard work with respect

If more energy was devoted to working hard, as opposed to gossiping, wonders can be done by exploiting Ethiopia’s massive untapped potential. Senseless bickering and malicious gossiping have done incalculable harm to Ethiopia.

The imperative to uplift hardworking folks, chasten betrayers

The exemplary deed this week by a member of the police force of the Afar Regional State warms the heart. In a display of patriotism he refused to accept a bribe in the form of 40,000 birr (over USD 1,350) and firearms offered by arms traffickers out of a conviction that he would never compromise the national interest and promptly put them under arrest.

Averting prospect of eternal trials and tribulations!

Ethiopia is a nation that its people often lament has been condemned to constant tribulation. If we just hark back some 46 years when the reign of Emperor Haile-Selassie collapsed on the heels of the February 1974 revolution, the country has been roiled with internecine conflicts and other deadly incidents.
