A stake for the military could have been a very positive and encouraging for Development of the military and the People whork under it. But. But. but.

But the People who hate and killed and still kill ethiopipans having the Whole stake is a the worst for the majority of Ethioians. And a good reclam for those who engaed in woyaneism.

The good thing is the dictator is dead. At least no Ethiopian would be killed by him directly.

The Money from Ethiopian people is being used to create a company run by the military for the benefit not for the Military but the pockets of WOYANE. It owns 75 companies? Between METEC and EFFORT I am sure there are hundreds of companies. All the money the gets generated from these companies is funneled to the WOYANE BANDAS. Believe me all the truth will come out and when it does the people of Ethiopia will be amazed how much money they stole from the country and how they store the money. I don’t think the majority of the opposition even know the depth of their skim. They have fund managers in New York that invest their money under fictitious companies so they don’t get tracked. I know for fact one of their fund manager in NY that is investing their money. The individual opened up an investment firm just for that purpose.

Really? The military is in business now?

“..Former Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, who ruled Ethiopia for 21 years before he died in August, may have created METEC to give the military a “stake” in the economy, said Merkeb. “Now the military will always defend the system whatsoever..”

Did that little runt do this so that the military will do what ever to protect its income thereby prolonging woyane rule?

This article just shows the effort the government is making in yet another area, this time the military-indusrial complex.

What they are trying to do is save as much money as possible by producing those parts that can be built at home. There is no doubt that while it will not employ the whole of Ethiopia, it will provide employment for thousands. This means that for every person hired, about 5 will benefit. It also means other companies will have orders to fill (contractors and sub-contractors). It also contributes to the industrialization of the country.

For those of you who are pessimistic, the military engaging in military manufacturing is nothing new in the world. I also prefer this organized, efficient army to run than private business. In most countries in the world including the USA, when the government relies heavily on private companies, the result is that these companies will rob the government blind. I’m sure those of you who lived here in the USA under Clinton, private comapnies with government contracts were charging $ 1.800 for a toilet seat on US military cargo planes.

All military equipment bought from abroad are about 25%-40% more than they actually cost because of middlemen, taxes etc. So this is a smart investment and hopefully we can export parts to other African countries.

@ Woyane Leba:
The list you have put up are all areas where the government has improved.

@ Hagere Ethiopia:
Why are you surprised that the military is in business? Where have you been. Does YETIYIT FABRICA near Mexico Square ring a bell? By the way, I guarantee you the person you call “a runt” is much more intelligent than you. I dare you to deny this.

@Observer:
Empty allegations. Do you have proof? “They have fund managers…”
What else can you tell us. You seem to know so much! I respect you. Please tell me what kind of suits these “Woyane Bandas” like to wear? Please tell us what kind of scotch they drink. You know so many facts.

@Teddy,
the foundation for all this enterprise is laid by Mengistu. Even the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has expressed this view in parliament. Actually as far as I know Meles has praised Mengistu twice. First on Mengistu’s support for African liberation movements; and second, Mengistu’s effort to produce spare parts and light weapons and ammunation in Ethiopia.
Having said that, the present government has taken that effort to a different level. You should learn to give credit when credit is due.
