No place for politics of provocation!

As the Ethiopian New Year gets into full swing it is incumbent on Ethiopians to commit themselves to working extra hard than the preceding year. Overseas-based political parties are returning from exile in droves having decided to pursue a peaceful political struggle.

Attaching importance to vital national issues!

Ethiopia’s very survival is always uppermost in the minds of Ethiopians. The nation’s survival may be laid on a solid foundation insofar as the shared interests and needs of the people enjoy equal protection.

Lest schemers assume unbridled power!

Ethiopian culture is replete with traditional proverbs about life. These adages are used to encourage hard-working folks, laud do-gooders, motivatestragglers and chide wrong doers.

Stopping lawlessness in its track!

The type of tumultuous change Ethiopia is currently undergoing is bound to be fraught with grave challenges. Nonetheless, Ethiopians need to reflect seriously where they want their beloved nation is headed if lawlessness slowly sets in on account of the government’s inability to uphold the rule of law.

Bringing to justice perpetrators of egregious crimes!

The horrendous events that transpired in eastern Ethiopia the previous weekend have grave political ramifications for the whole of Ethiopia. The mind-numbing killing, maiming and vandalizing of the properties of innocent compatriots in the Somali regional state constitute one of the darkest chapters in Ethiopia’s recent history.

Averting a breakdown in law and order

A country which is not a nation of laws is bound to be riven by conflict. This is particularly true when the country happens to be in the midst of a political transition. Nowadays the constant headlines about conflicts, death and destruction in different parts of Ethiopia are unsettling its people.

Lest hands extended in peace are clenched!

There is a saying that goes, “Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host.”  It’s the responsibility of this generation to erase decades of hatred and vindictiveness with love and forgiveness.
