Seyoum Mesfin Offers People of Tigray a Separate Peace, The Rest of Ethiopians a Separate War

Enough betrayal. Enough hate. Ethiopians need an endless supply of trust and love

Hateful. Divisive. Vile. Speaking at a recent TPLF conference, Seyoum Mesfin cleverly, cunningly and calculatedly conflates the ongoing opposition and popular resistance against the TPLF rule in Ethiopia with a presumed and contrived existential threat to the people of Tigray.


I find it exceedingly important to record a timely response to Seyoum Mesfin’s inflammatory, outrageous and alarming battle cry aimed at spreading hysteria and paranoia among the people of Tirgray about a contrived genocidal war against them in the planning by their Ethiopian brothers and sisters.

A Thorn in the Flesh

The people of the region want peace and stability; but what if war is the price?

TPLF Woyane regime in Ethiopia is a thorn in Eritrea’s flesh; a thorn that only grows bigger and sharper.


I hope the suggestion I am about to make below will be received by all in the concept I intend in my heart of hearts. My intentions/wishes are purely geared towards bringing about peace and stability in Eritrea specifically, and the Horn of Africa at large. Continue reading A Thorn in the Flesh

Another Peace Deal Unravels in South Sudan

South Sudan’s civil conflict has raged on since December 2013, despite several ceasefire agreements. Is the latest peace accord the real deal? (Photo: by Jason Patinkin/IRIN)

By Jason Patinkin | for IRIN,

South Sudan’s latest peace deal is unravelling as fighting picks up and a new declaration by President Salva Kiir threatens the most delicately struck parts of the agreement.

Kiir, an ethnic Dinka, and rebel leader Riek Machar, a Nuer, signed a peace deal last month meant to end 21 months of fighting when a power struggle between the two degenerated into violence marked by army massacres of Nuer in the capital, Juba.

Ethiopia Issues Unfamiliar Investor Warning Over War and Famine

ECONOMIC SUICIDE? Issuing sovereign bonds in countries such as Ethiopia will increase the risk of exposing the local economy to a lot of volatility, be it from international capital market, risk of war, famine, unrest or anything that threatens security in the country. If it can not avoid any of the scenarios, the alternative is to watch the economy washed up into drains

By Financial Times,

EVERY country tapping the global sovereign bond market details the dangers investors face in its prospectus, often in a boilerplate section enumerating possible problems – such as fiscal deficits or taxation issues – that is largely ignored.

But the document sent by Ethiopia to international investors ahead of its foray into the global sovereign bond market is some what different. Far from a boilerplate, it includes a list of unfamiliar hazards, such as famine, political tension and warContinue reading Ethiopia Issues Unfamiliar Investor Warning Over War and Famine

The Coming Ethio-Egyptian Water War

Why is Egypt called the gift of the Nile? Because with out Nile, Egypt would probably not exist. So why is the Ethiopian government wanted to threaten the very existence of Egypt, unprovoked, by damming the Nile. When it comes to survival, there are no rules to be governed for. Either Ethiopia succumbed to Egypt’s demand of building smaller size dams or risk being bombed before it reaches 90% completed?

By Bereket Kidane,

THE unilateral action by Ethiopia to dam the Nile for hydropower generation and the adverse effects it will have on Egypt has been described by experts as anywhere from “causing significant damage to Egypt” to “potentially catastrophic.”

Anytime you play smart with nature and make changes to the landscape, it always has unintended negative consequences. It happens every time. Guaranteed! At the very least, it never works out the way you imagined it. Leaving aside the merits of damming the Nile on the Ethiopian side, the net effect will be to reduce the water flow to downstream states, namely Sudan and Egypt.  Continue reading The Coming Ethio-Egyptian Water War
