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.

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….

addis zemen, actually gets most of its news from other media outlets which you too could do it if you have internet connection. is also getting a bit better in balancing it’s view in Ethiopia’s current events unlike ethiopianreview.

if continues to balance its view in Ethiopian current events, current government is forgiving government so will have a place. Sooner or later, they will join true Ethiopians to build united Ethiopia as united force.

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.

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.:))

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………………….
