Did you read what Haile said. He said he doesn’t do charity the way you like it but he can teach you how to fish. comprehende? get out of your beggar mentality and try to understand different opinion. But if you decide to beg and not earn, you will end your life mastering begging and nothing else.

Haile is a RENAISSANCE MAN.
A lot of Ethiopians including our great runners have learned a lot from his strong determinid personality and politeness.
He is one of Ethiopia’s sons who will play a great roll on our country’s rebirth."RENAISSANCE”

It is sufficient that Haile is a grear runner he made his money which Abebe Bikila Mamo Wolde were not lucky enough to make it. Dear Haile enjoy it, while it lasts, just stop trying to be an intelectual you are a runner thats all that does not make you an intelectual. We are fed up with this sudointelectuals
like Meles. Just enjoy Gods’gift. We kow Etiopians are big pretenders, you cannot be-come an intellectual because you are a runner.

Haile is a living legend. Full stop!

Those who accuse him of greed are pathetic. What better way to help people than by creating employment? What better way to teach our young people than by showing modesty, being disciplined in earning your money and careful about how you spend it? (He once said “if people want me to leave a 10 BR tip after drinking a 2 BR coffee, sorry I will not do that.")

His contribution is immense.

As to Prof Ephrem, I really don’t know what role he wants to play in our society. He seems to be a glory seeker. To be faie to him, his characterization of Abebe Bikila is not new. Someone has recently written a book which describes Abebe in a similar fashion.

We have got more help than we deserve. Why should anybody help us? Are we less people than any other? Come on! All our problems are political and cultural. Any dictator knows it’s easy to dictate poor and weak people. So they work hard to keep us down.
And all we do is sit down and blame nature and gevornment( culture).

He is a versatile man and an intelligent who knows what is doing for him and his country. I do not understand why some people are so jealous on him and spit their venom words onto him. I agree with his idea 100% to alleviate our begging tradition and poverty than the bad tradition and culture that our wealthiest people cherished to the poor people. Even most of our remittance foreign money is always used to create rift among family members than changing one or two persons among the family member to be self sustained.

What a fine article! Haile indeed have a gret impact beyond running! He realy inspire me to do things differently in life. If we all could do a fraction of what Haile teaches us, belive me ethiopia will be a better place to live in. Keep up the good work Bro. God bless!!!
