Ethiopia Must Let Somalia Determine its Own Fate

In the face of Ethiopia’s unprovoked meddling in their internal affairs, do Somalis still have a chance to save their nation?

Somalia will not be able to assert itself and prosper until Ethiopia stops meddling in its affairs.


Ethiopia has long been a thorn in the side of Somalia, a troublesome neighbour, and an obstacle to regional peace. In an ideal world, the two countries would be brotherly nations but in reality the opposite is the case. The energy and resources spent by these erstwhile adversaries in undermining each other — could have made both nations prosperous. Continue reading Ethiopia Must Let Somalia Determine its Own Fate

‘Ethiopia Trying to Expand Due to Population Explosion’: Sudan Ambassador

Sudanese Ambassador to Ethiopia said Ethiopia is trying to expand [by claiming land from neighboring states] as it suffers from population explosion. He also accused the Amhara regional government for stocking border tension with Sudan.
By Daniel Berhane,

Sudanese Ambassador to Ethiopia Osman Nafi accused the Amhara regional government in neighboring Ethiopia for recent border skirmish that claims the lives of 25 Sudanese nationals.

Khartoum’s papers have been reporting for more than a month about a series of raids and kidnapping for ransom in the border region of Gedaref by Ethiopian gunmen. Though Ethiopian officials have been quite on the matter, their Sudanese counterparts have started making public comments.

Kenya Deploys Army to Guard Border after Ethiopia Invades

KDF NEEDS TO EARN ITS RESPECT. Ethiopia once again disrespected and violates Kenya’s sovereignty. The Kenyan Defense Force (KDF) should get that respect is something that is earned than granted. Should KDF cut its illegal charcoal and sugar trade in Somalia and engage the invading Ethiopian army?

By Alli Abdi | Standard Media,

The Kenya Defence Force (KDF) has moved its armoured vehicles and tanks from the Odha Military Camp in Moyale to Sololo following an invasion by Ethiopian forces who killed three police officers.

The development last evening follows a fierce gun battle earlier in the day between Kenya police and Ethiopian forces at Anona and parts of Sololo Township in Kenyan territory. Marsabit County Police Commander Bernard Kogo said three Kenyan security officers were killed but declined to reveal the casualty on the Ethiopian side. “We lost three officers at the border (Sololo) and I do not know what happened on their (Ethiopian) side,” said Mr Kogo.

Africa, China and the West: an Exchange With Thomas Mountain

Ron Jacobs, the author of ‘Daydream Sunset: Sixties Counterculture in the Seventies’ have some insightful exchanges with Thomas Mountain, an independent journalist, educator and activist from Eritrea about Africa, China and the West.

By Ron Jacobs,

Ron Jacobs: You mention you live in Eritrea. I recall going to a couple meetings back in the 1970s during the Eritrean liberation struggle against Ethiopia. For the sake of a memory that is a bit hazy, do you mind summarizing that moment in time and the subsequent history of the Eritreans and Ethiopia?

THOMAS MOUNTAIN: In 1983 I was first introduced to a representative of the Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (EPLF) by Kwame Ture when I traveled to Los Angeles for my first meeting with Kwame. At the time the EPLF was an almost unknown guerilla army fighting an independence war against the Ethiopian colonialization of their country that no one it seemed, other than the Eritrean people, thought possible to win. Kwame himself was a longtime supporter of the EPLF and had a policy of requesting, if possible, a representative of the EPLF to give the opening remarks at any of his speaking engagements.
