It sounds good. But who is paying it back? I don’t think that we will be any richer to pay that large a lump sum withing right after 10 years.

Dear all,

This sounds a big risk but the infrastructure investment towards generating more energy is a great news in deed.

I therefore say the news which reads “Ethiopia - EEPCo Closing in $400m Deal” is a music to my ears and cerintyly sure it will be very pleasing to a anyone who is genuinely interested in our mother lands development.

Yes – indeed development requires not development talk but requires an appropriate action.

This may be a sad news for the CUD/AAPO comps in particular BUT this time they should
not really tell us they know and feel better than tens of thousands who rallied to make a difference to the poor people in out mother land.

The “I KNOW IT ALL” syndrome is the disease afflicting you and the likes and so far it isn’t known to be contagious through social contact other than deep political influence and disguised nationalism.

Therefore regardless of one political biases – good news should always be praised.

Regards, Zena

I bet you 10% of this loan doesn’t go to the project. It will go directly to the pocket of woyanes officals. Oh god what you waiting for our great grand childrens are going down to the debt created by this anti ethiopian government.

When it comes to stealing money some people would like to point fingers at woiane….So do you mean that CUD is innocent….I guess the fight in the CUD camp is not Ideology but Money. I don’t trust them when it comes to money. I guess woyane is better. ” kemayawkut melak yemiyawkut seytan sayishal aykerim”

Thank you Nazret for posting such a wonderful and encouraging news that makes our day
brighter. Yeah - it is the responsibility of any government to collect taxes and built such infrastructure for the benefit of its citizens. And when it comes to unity and teritorial integrity Woyane is the worst government that Ethiopia ever had. But,
can we just stop for a second and think where does all this money comes from while
none of us who are criticizing the government from this blog pay not a single cent
back to our community. Please let’s encourage good work and criticize when only things are not going well. In this particular case the Woyannes should be praised - trust me raising 400 million from a NY Bank is not a
simple task. Let God bless Ethiopia. Amen

Who are the we any way? The diaspora that is with American citizenship and does not pay a penny in tax to Ethiopia is no part of Ethiopia. In order for one to be called “We” the Diaspora like its counter parts of Eritrea needs to pay 2% or more of annual cumulative annual income tax with interest since the day one has abandoned Ethiopia and ran away from the war of liberation in which many gave their lives and lost an eye a leg or an arm. “We the people” are Ethiopia who work for their country not against it, tax paying citizens and are called to defend their country from a foreign enemy of which the worst is the diaspora and in particular those who finance and dissemination falls information to the media and those who prosecute in a foreign legislative body or those who order an act of terror against Ethiopians, from their hotel rooms in Asmara? Which they suspect by know is next to the room of executioners, whose sword is hoisted to fall on their traitor necks with a wink of an eye at the whim of their hosts very precarious judgement.

To those who do not like any good news about Ethiopia. To those who see any development in Ethiopia as money laundering for Woyane. What are you going to say about this? Woyane is borrowing money to build hydroelectric dam project to light up Woyane’s homes only?

The bank does not give a loan with out seeing a clear project plan. Apparently, Woyane is the only one with clear visionary plans.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not Woyane nor do I belong to any other name labeled group. I’m simply for Ethiopia and I side with the one who has a clear vision for Ethiopia and I would like to advise my fellow Ethiopians to STOP WHINING AND JUMP IN THE MOVING TRAIN.

Please stop being negative. Some of you are quick to accuse the gov’t at every turn. Because you are full of hate but you try to hide yourself. This is a better gov’t that managed the country’s’ finances than anyone in the past - it’s a fact. Look at what they have accompished in the past few years despite wars and conflicts within. I stood on the opposition side for a long time because I believe that we need a system to make the gov’t accountable at every point. Unfortunately, we have not got one yet. However, I will never criticize the gov’t for the sake of being in the opposition camp. I think that they are very good money managers. That doesn’t mean some are not embezzling the gov’t coffer. But it’s everywhere - look at Halliburton (Dick Cheney) and Black water. We will always have people in every system and gov’t who are going to take advantage. Trust me – If Kinijit was in power they will do the same – they will benefit people who connected to them. It’s a human nature.. but let us see the big picture - don’t get me wrong - it’s not acceptable to me to steal. What I am saying is that they are not completely abusing the wealth and the people.
