Nazret.com a real Ethiopian web site. Thank you guys. This is the only web site I get my full info about Ethiopia. Fair and balanced. You guys deserve the well earned due credit.
hahahaha what a comedy of EPRDF with new puppet artists.
Well, another election and another selection. What is new for the Ethiopian people? Same all poverty, disease, hunger, illiteracy and tribal politics and you name it. I saw the cabinet announcement and it was an embarrassing seen. Well, thanks to Mengistu, Ethiopia is converted from country of the HEROES to country of the BANDAS. Meles knows this fact very well and he can purchase the BANDAS any time and as many as he wants to do anything he wants. He even bought plenty from the Diaspora market with a promise of plots of land.
What about Dr.Birhanu Nega(G7 president)? I am waiting what he will say
I think Meles is moving more to the center from his narrow ethnic base. I never expected he would put a non Tigrean at FM. Good beginning….
the new artists. Good job you have got some one to control
addis zemen, actually nazret.com gets most of its news from other media outlets which you too could do it if you have internet connection.
nazret.com is also getting a bit better in balancing it’s view in Ethiopia’s current events unlike ethiopianreview.
if nazret.com continues to balance its view in Ethiopian current events, current government is forgiving government so nazret.com will have a place. Sooner or later, they will join true Ethiopians to build united Ethiopia as united force.
It’s a big wow for the Somali Ethiopian state today.
Oh it’s a wonderful day for Jijiga boys.Of course,our boys in Jijgjiga they are tonight in big celebrations party after having a two new Minsters names of the PM new appointed cabinet list names.
Oh! I would like to congratulate for the all Somali Ogadenis.
Of course,It’s the first time in the history of Ethiopia,the Somalis having of two major minsters within a one session government.Go Jijiga Go up to the moon while the prof begging western to restore his old fascist governments.
kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk,Long live Melese and oh! be proud Jijiga boys for your new Ethiopia democratic federations systems.
Viva Hagare Ethiopia.
I hardly recognize Hailemariam Desalegn as a politician. Let alone as Secretary of State It’s just another child’s play by Woyane. I would highly appreciate if Nazret Could reveal the real operating people behind this puppets.
Anyone with PHD??…Nazret find out their resume or CV. and let us know Anyone with PHD??…Nazret find out their resume or CV. and let us know what they accomplish in the past for the nation not personal success any of them members of any association? Any public school teacher? Any author?
it takes them 12 minute to appoint all the puppet at once, no argument, no comment or anything that nature, just they raise their hand on the air to ratify zenawi appointies. It was funny we were laughing so hard in the cafe we were watching the whole process. We thought it was the extension of Gemena drama.
And what would be the change ,once again as usual “NADA” .TPLF thugs,
aderby bandas ,TPLF paid diaspora traitors keep on barking .Bunch of
Dr. Brhanu Nega ..Minster of complain at the parking lot in DC. for life time
Werebela Tamagn Beyene…Minster of Demonstration organizer against Ethiopia. for life time….
I really support the southerners to be like this high rank government post. I love someone who really love my mother land Ethiopia. Hailemariam Dessalegn is one of those who love his country Ethiopia so that he is the correct choice as minister of foreign ministry. I am still angry about the hyena Bereket (Godelo) sewAlemehon keeps his position. By the way where is Demeke Mekonen? He is the man who sold Ethiopian territory (western parts of Gonder province) to Sudan to get “Temporary Shumet” Kkkkkkkkkkkk……………Hhhhh Demie ……….HHHHhh kkkkkkkk Demie………………….

Where were have you been Amico Chaves?Long time and it is nice to meet you here.
PM Meles! good luck, it is the matter of little time. It is not gonna be long time to see freedom of ethiopian people.
I was watching live on ETV. It was very funny how Abadula (our new speaker of the house) handled the swearing ceremony. There was no debate or some sort of confirmation hearing. The newly formed parliament showed its rubberstamping duty in just few minutes by approving all of the nominations. Not a single person was saying something about these new cabinet members. Do debate, no nothing. Wow. I wonder how boring it would be for the lone opposition parliamentarian.
A decline in the TPLF members especially in the key post areas.
