500,000 hectares? Where are the small scale farmers that used to farm and raise families out of their produce? Now only couple of rich tycoons will benefit at the expense of poor Ethiopians who will soon die of hunger. If at all they get paid to work on their own land it will not be enough to feed their families.

The land grap in Ethiopia by the government that is hiding behind development veil should be stopped. It is giving foreign companies to manage and use our land for their own greed.
How many of them are doing oil exploration? more than 10 companies. For sure each and every one of them was given more than 100,000 hectares of land. Is the government buying the land from these innocent Ethiopians? For sure nooo.

Don’t think Ethiopians are as stupid as you are. You are certainly a boot licker and an ignorant moron who bluffs everywhere with no bit of knowledge or morality.
Please shut up. we are getting sick of your blind comments. I am sure you don’t mind if the whole Ethiopia is sold to foreigners.

The CUD/Kinijit mainly disgruntled Amharas and Sheabias are the one writing negative comments. Because they don’t want to see Ethiopia progress. Under the Amhara leadership, Ethiopia was the famine and poverty capital of the world. It’s only the first time in the country history that the gov’t is doing something for the people. Ethiopia will be even much greater when the majority rules…

I heard Eritreans protest not to eat spaggeti cause they were eating it for almost 17 years and need to change food menu. They tried to plant teff but doesn’t meet supply and demand theory for most Shabias prefere teff than spagetti.They are so proud of their freedom which bring change of line-up for piece of bread next to Zembabwe.

Well, no one deny the fact that cultivating a tiny part of a forgotten land is a small step that deserve praise since this brings a handsome hard currency in to the coffers of the Ethiopian Central Bank………. Please don’t tell me my fellow countrymen and women overnight became tea lovers of the British proportion!

Before it was a consorted campaign for coffee plantation, yesterday it was the ‘rose revolution’ today it is the Tea turn! In a country with fertile land in abundance and no lack of both rain and river water, the interest of the local Negade or the influx of foreign investors is a promising endeavour which should be encouraged.

However, no one should be under illusion as to the real purpose of these enterprises since there is still a chronic shortage of ‘real food’ for the ever-growing population and it will be a matter of time before we see yet another horrific pictures of dieing Ethiopians broadcasted all over the world. Or the philosophy of constantly admitting poverty and looking to the West for handouts is still the attractive option in the minds of our policy-makers?

The government must balance between the licensing of greater size of land for the so-called cash-crops by paving the way for a quick profit making using the existing cheap labour and the allocation of ‘weather proof’ farmlands for the cultivation of food for immediate need and for strategically important reserves. The volatile nature of the climate under which the vast majority of our farmers rely upon is still the concern for our society, not to mention the over-ploughed land with little or no productivity to match with.

Remind me who said: “The harvest in Europe depends on good or bad weather while in Eastern countries it depends on good or bad government”? ……well, call me unfashionable Marxist!
