The selling of Ethiopia

The selling of Ethiopia

By Yilma Bekele

Actually that statement might not be true. We do know our country is being sold but we have no idea if the bidding has been open or closed. We have sold almost all of Gambella, we have leased half of Afar and Oromia has been parceled out bit by bit. Our Beer factories are under new owners, our gold mines belong to the fake Ethiopian sheik, Telephone is under the Chinese and our Airlines is looking for a suitor. Have we always looked for outsiders to own us?

Not really when you consider that we celebrated the victory at the battle of Adwa a few weeks back and that was the mother of all wars that made it clear this African country is not for sale. We might not have contributed much to the industrial revolution but we did manage to rely on our own ingenuity to follow along and do things our own way. You might not believe this but there was a time when Ethiopians actually used to be involved in making stuff from scratch. You think I am making things up don’t you? I don’t blame you because today you cannot even come up with one name that stands out as an Ethiopian entrepreneur, go getter or someone that shines like the north star based solely on his own sweat and blood.

The things that were accomplished by earlier Ethiopians are all around us but we don’t see them. All the things the current government brags about have their roots in the yester years they so much condemn and brush off. I don’t know where to start but here we go. Let us start with hospitals. Bella Haile Selassie (Bella), Leelt Tshay (armed Forces), Paulos, Haile Selassie Hospital (Yekati 12), Balcha, Ghandi, Tikur Anbessa, Ras Desta, Minilik etc. The vast majority of the doctors were Ethiopians, the hospitals were clean, well equipped and you don’t even have to take your own sheets and blankets.

How about Hotels? Ethiopia, Ghion, Wabi Shebele, Ras, Bekele Molla were the premier destinations. They were owned and operated by Ethiopians. When it comes to Ethiopian Airlines the Pilots were proud Ethiopians and the technicians were the envy of Africa. The Imperial government built the Airlines from scratch. Trans World Airlines (TWA) was a partner until we were able to train and staff our own and we did manage to do that.
If we talk about agriculture we did manage to establish the Sugar estates of Metehara and Wonji not to mention Setit Humera, the wheat and corn fields of Arsi, the fiber plants of Sidama and the cotton fields of Awash Valley are testimonial to our ingenuity. The sixties saw the emergence of the new educated Ethiopians that raised the bar of excellence.

The establishment of Africa Hall was how Africans showed respect to our Emperor and our old history when they choose Addis Abeba as the head quarter for the continent. The University at sadist Kilo was a gift to his people by the Emperor and it was a spectacular success. All the teachers were highly educated Ethiopians and the graduates were the pride of our country.

Why am I discussing such subject today? It is because two items reported by the media caught my eye a few days back. Both are an assault on our sovereignty and our ability to grow our own economy by Ethiopians for Ethiopians. Heineken a Dutch conglomerate is building the biggest brewery in Ethiopia and Guangdong Chuan Hui Group from China is given 41,000 Sq. meter of land to construct hotel and industrial complex. The way the story is being reported we should be jumping with joy. What could be better than those two benevolent multi nationals investing so much in our poor destitute country?

Is that how we should look at it? Is there another aspect to this story? In order to see the pros and con of the question posed In front of us it would have been nice if there has been a nationwide discussion to see if the plan makes sense when it comes to our homeland. That is how smart decisions are made. Open and vibrant nationwide discussion regarding such important issues that impact our national economy and our people’s well-being assures a better outcome.

That usually is not the case in our country. There are no checks and balances. There is no independent legislative body and the judiciary is a government tool. A single party the TPLF controls all and everything in the country. Our political leaders have no faith in the ability of the people to know what is good for them. That is why they approach their job as being a ‘baby sitter’ and are constantly fretting about what the people hear and read. Decisions are made by a few TPLF politburo members to be approved by the rubber stamp Parliament. Anyone that questions such a decision is branded as enemy of the people and dealt with.

Let us start with our beer story. You know beer is nothing but European Tella. It is bottled fancy and costs a little bit more. How long ago do you think we acquired the idea of brewing for a larger crowd? Eighty years ago my friend! St George brewery was started in 1922. Meta Abo Brewery was founded in 1963. Meta Abo was a partnership between government and private capital and started with a base capital of 2million Birr. The military junta nationalized both and the current TPLF Woyane regime inherited them with the rest of Ethiopia. What do you think these successive regimes did with our own old industry and land? Did they build on what was started? Did they reinvest the profit to make the enterprises bigger and better? Did they run our industries, enterprises and farms in a responsible and judicious manner?

Both St. George and Meta Abo are no more Ethiopian enterprises. BGI (an internationally acclaimed Brewing Company that operates in many countries.??) bought St George in 1998 for US 10 million ‘through foreign direct investment’(??) Meta Ambo was sold to Diego Industries-a British congalmorate for US 225 million. Heineken a Dutch multi-national acquired 18% of Bedele and Harar breweries for US 163 million in 2011. Raya Brewery an idea that has not materialized yet but promoted by Lt. General Tsadkan W.Tensai and investors such as Yemane (Jamaica) Kidane and other TPLF officials sold 25% interest to BGI for 650 million Br and invited Brewtech a German company as a partner.
As you can see the TPLF regime collected close to US 400 million from the sale of our home grown breweries. By all imagination that is chump change when you consider the ownership is lost and the profit for eternity belongs to the foreigners. Is this a good way to grow a national economy? Has it been done before or is this another of that failed ‘revolutionary democracy’ pipe dream?

BGI, Diego or Heineken are investing in our country to realize profit for their shareholders. What is our country getting out of this? The beer manufacturing business is a highly automated enterprise so it is not about job creation. Most if not all of the high paying managerial jobs will be occupied by the parent company. The malt, barley and other ingredients are imported and are considered a trade secret. We all know about creative accounting thus I am sure our country does not even benefit from the profit because the bookkeeping is rigged to minimize taxes.
Let us not even think of technology transfer since we cannot learn what we have already mastered. Remember we have been brewing beer since 1922. I will tell you what we got out of this unequal relationship. We as a people got royally screwed. The TPLF party officials got paid plenty for their pimping effort. The regime in its insatiable appetite for foreign currency bought a few months of respite to purchase oil, wheat, cooking oil etc. to postpone its inevitable collapse.

There are certain things we know how a growing economy with a nationalist government operates. We have seen how China, India, Malaysia, Brazil and other emerging economies handled their growth potential. They use what is known as subsidy to protect their infant industries from foreign predators. They allowed investment where technology transfer will bring benefit to their people but shielded their home grown industries from foreign competition.

Why do you think the TPLF bosses are interested in selling our sovereignty? I doubt it is because they are anti-Ethiopian even though the late evil PM used to suffer from inferiority complex when it comes to central highlanders. I believe it is because of their ‘get rich quick’ philosophy. They are in a hurry to accumulate before their Ponzi scheme comes crashing down. According to the UN billions of dollars are leaving our country. They are buying properties in the US and Europe, sending their children to expensive schools abroad and vacationing in exotic places with the money they steal from our country.

What are we the victims doing about this rape and pillage of our resources and the degradation of our national pride? I am afraid other than insistently talking there is nothing more most of us are doing about it. Why do you think that is so? I could think of a few things but ignorance comes to mind first and foremost. Our ignorance prevents us from connecting the dots and looking at the bigger picture. Our misplaced pride does not allow us to listen to others and learn to be able to formulate better solutions to our problems.
Today we have a population that is not familiar with its history. Sixty four percent (64%) of our people are under twenty five years old while twenty nine percent (29%) are under the age of 54 years. We have a toxic population on our hands. Those under twenty five grew up under the Woyane regime where being an Ethiopian is taken as a liability. While those under fifty four are the result of the Derge era of undermining religion, family, and stability. Ninety three (93%) of our population is a fertile ground for evil Woyane to plant shame, doubt and insecurity about being
Ethiopian.

It is this population that is sitting on the side and cheering the selling of their country. For most people what bothers them is not what is lost but they spend endless energy to get a piece of the action. In Ethiopia stealing, lying, being part of a criminal enterprise is encouraged by the regime. When the recently dead Meles Zenawi said ‘even being a thief requires being smart’ he was giving a green light to his cadres and the population at large. The so called Diaspora is the number one enabler of the criminal Woyane machine. They use their new found riches to bribe Woyane so they could acquire stolen land to build their flimsy unsustainable condominiums and spend endless nights worrying if the next highest bidder will in turn take it away in broad day light.

This is exactly the reason we are having a problem forming a united front to get rid of this cancerous body in our midst. This is the reason even in exile we are unable to form a democratic, inclusive and worthy association that will benefit the many. The ninety three percent are in need of education in civic affairs and a dose of what it means to love your neighbor as you would love yourself.

May be it is the lords way of teaching us little humility and humbleness as he did with the children of Israel when he left them to wonder for forty years in the wilderness so they know what is in their heart. It is a choice we have-to be humble or perish due to pride.

No wonder, Yilma. Because we know you and your blinded toxic few cohorts are big time LOSERS. We know all the losers like you and your gloomy puppets and followers are against EPDRF and the resolute and brilliant popular TPLF leaders with-in the ruling party. We know you are envy of the outstanding EPDRF leadership and the socio-economic achievements Ethiopia is recording. So, you CAN NOT do anything about it, but you all haters will just burn in your own hate and negativism.

We know you are hate mongering remnant of the old regime and a puppet of ESAT and what have you. And all Ethiopia haters in the Diaspora like you will eventually fade, wither and vanquish for good and Ethiopia and its peace loving people will flourish and get out of abject poverty!

Dude, get help from Psychiatrist ASP since you have an issue with 93% of Ethiopian population. You see brother Yelma, your problem started when your superiority complex of central highlander has got squashed by 93% of decent Ethiopians. That has obviously inflicted unbearable psyche trauma. My advice to you and to the remnant of old Abyssinia in Diaspora is that -try to get over it. New mosaic and blooming Ethiopia with young new generation that is beyond your imagination and intellect. The genius son of Ethiopia dubbed you and alike “Idiots” and “the gate keeper of poverty” and I can’t agree more.

The author who is part of “idiots and fools” erroneously reported a number of things. I do not want to stoop to his level but I will give him one example.
The Miller Brewing Company is an American beer brewing company owned by the United Kingdom-based SABMiller (formerly a South African Company)
On July 13, 2008, InBev agreed to buy Anheuser-Busch for a total value of $52 billion.
Source Wikipedia

Ato Yilma,
Why do not tell US government not to sell the No. 1 and 2 US Brewing companies to foreign based companies?
If you are patriotic indeed, you should have raised capital to buy those Ethiopian Breweries instead of wasting of you energy disseminating anti Ethiopian development.

Without an exceptional for the fragility leadership and the turnout reinvestment in looting from a country and the blindness for an inward looking, this article deserves a top ranked and a dare of shoot–given that where the author it. Keep it up, Yilma if their (the TPLFs) egocentric attitude might be alerted, and if their individualized benefit to be curbed, and if they recover from Williams syndrome in barking against an insightful article, generations will not be sold to the servitude status.

Here comes another poster boy of the wounded cry babies fools and idiots of the diaspora.
This must be the last lamentation we gonna hear from this loser wanna be poster boy of the fools & idiots of the diaspora. I hope it is. Because we are really tired of all this cry.
He keeps contradicting himself, wishing to discredit our govt.
Do we really have to argue with this kind of denial and jealousy filled stupidity.
The childish and rubbish claim of Ethiopia being sold to the higher bidder aside, he angrily laments why foreign investors come to this “poor and destitute” country like Ethiopia and invest? LOL! He acknowledges all the developmental succes in Ethiopia, then jealously like the rest of losers we see on this website claims “what is our country getting out of this?” And then he said, ” I’m sure our country does not even benefit from the profit because the book keeping is rigged to minimize taxes.” HaHaHaHa!!
This is all we have in the opposition diaspora world. A jealous poster boy and the disgraced banda almaria.
Finally, he crys 93% of Ethiopian population being toxic, because they’re supporting the rulling party.
Well, as far as I’m concerned, it is good to know that, you’ve lost it all and have no chance of putting your feet on Ethiopian soil ever. With that in mind, we don’t really mind for you and the likes of diaspora FOOLS & IDIOTS keep on crying bitterly. That’s what losers supposed to do, cry baby cry!

During Derg rule Mengistu Hailemariam folded his shirt sleeves neatly and climbed to the podium and shouted with great vigour claiming that the northern rebels were completely surounded with the RED STAR magic and will soon be totally decimated by our great patriotic forces. “This we are doing to prevent our mother land from being splited and sold to the highest bidder for money” Mengistu explained.

What a fool! why not split and sell it if it is profitable?. Leader with no traces of entrepreneural common sense.” remarked a shrewed Gurage business man from sodo.

And now the revese is becoming the truth. Why is it that PM Hailemariam is not taking to the podium and declare that our motherland should not be sold cheap piece by piece to the hieghest bidder just like his name sake Chairman M. Hailemariam has done in the past? Amazing! :)

Ethiopians with management degree, engineering, finance, and other educations could do more than do socially responsible business than outsiders Indians or Arabs could if they had governmental of the people. Instead of using Universities, financial institutions and Ethiopians for development of Ethiopian Weyane gives Ethiopians interest to Arabs and Indians. In divide and rule, British empowered foreign immigrants on control of assets of natives in countries like Kenya, South Africa, and like it where it had colonized. TPLF uses foreigners to weaken Ethiopians. Recently I read Ethiopian bank have extended millions to a foreigner to buy Ethiopian entity. Indian government gave hundreds of millions to Indian cooperation to displace Ethiopians. Indians Ambassador on an interview said it so. Hey, people, Weyane is in a hidden war against Ethiopian interest. As stated in TPLF manifesto Weyane will declare Independent Republic of Tigray after thoroughly weakening Ethiopians. Ethiopian will have 100 years assignment a conflict with Sudan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and others on many issues while Weyane consolidates power of Independent Republic of Tigray while others fight on that engineered conflict and their assignment. Location of a dam, land grab, Muslim video, and other acts of weakening Ethiopia and Ethiopians is in a course while people are confused and leaderless. People are awaking so. We must wake up or be a slave. Ethiopians head many big entities around the world. We are equally capable but we have a government that works against people, because of conflicts of interest. Weyane is not government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Weyane is for TPLF manifesto. I believe Ethiopians are capable people. Weyane fake 99.6 Government works against Ethiopians and Ethiopian interest. Ethiopians are up be real and free or be quit and be slaves of others. I will not let the second scenario hold, I am a winner. We shall be free.

its hard what this guy is trying to say. he is all over the place but reading between the lines his message is to trash the growing foreign investment in ethiopia.he is drawing a conclusion that the reason the FDI grew is because the new generation, unlike its past, cant make any thing. but that is wrong. foreign investment in general is what any country looks for let alone a poor country like ethiopia. you cant compare the ethiopia 30-40 years ago to today’s ethiopia. back then even the fraction of todays power was enough, because only few people had access to it, you being the one. same way with the beer and others. today you have to produce millions of littres of beer and to do that you need a large investment. same thing with the hotel, agriculture, cements,,,etc.. and you need investers to fill that gap. this is capitalism 101.what drives the Foreign investers, is the market and suitability of ethiopia. back then ethiopia and many other nation, didnt have the market and were not suitable for investment. that is NOT GOOD my friend! and the few factories and hotels you mentioned were owned by the state… i feel like i am talking to an 8 years here..lol..

“Yilma” = Destruction:

Which side are you? Should government continue owning companies? Or Should it lease (sell) them through privatization? Should government forbid (discourage)foreign companies?

I know you are BOTH FOR and AGAINST to what you are talking about! That is NOT your motive! The sincerity of your motive is disseminating HATRED and DESTRUCTION! Just destroying Woyane by any means! Then what? I know, then you and your kinds will take power, which you have been obsessed for for such a time, just to become the worst ever form of your current version of “Woyane"!

Finally, he crys 93% of Ethiopian population being toxic, because they’re supporting the rulling party.

AZ, you misread the point.. let me explain:
What he said is “Sixty four percent (64%) of our people are under twenty five years old..”
And those are who have no clue what Ethiopia means. He is saying they know the Meles Ethiopia. The one where he blames Minilik and the Amhara for making Ethiopia. It is a contradiction.. really, because here you are telling us you people love Ethiopia and at the same time teach the young generation the contrary. If the word “Idiot” fits anyone, it will be you woyane supporters, Woyanes and most of all Meles the dead shabia gered. Add the 29% of the fed up Derg era folks who, well are basically looking for a better life making up the 93%. The 29% know but dont want to act. The 64% don’t know any better. Get it?

Having said that,

Like I said it is not development if it infringes on the civil liberties of the population. The current unvoted for by the people GOE must slow down this displacing of farmers and leasing the land for Pennies. That is the selling of Ethiopia, woyane dudes. It is selling Ethiopia if these corporations are not monitored and the food they grow is for their consumption or for sale overseas. It is unEthiopian to give land to foreign nationals by forcefully removing Ethiopians, development or not. But what is new here people? These morons(Tplf) have been back stabbing Ethiopia for over four decades now. Just think what Ethiopia went trough once Tplf entered the play.
*They blocked the Derg from removing shabia from our territoiry.
*They activeley fought for and defended Shabia.
*They actively lobbied the UN and the West to break Eritrea away.
*They told the world Ethiopia has no claim On Asab.
*They gave 1600km of farm land land to the Sudan.

The list of abuse on the sovereignty of Ethiopia continues. This here is nothing compared to the mind wash that is being conducted on the Ethiopian young. Yap, Woyane/Tplf the Ethiopia haters are at work selling land to the lowest bidder as we speak.

And you Woyane supporters are telling us this is development?

Time to get real woyane boys & girls!

Dear Yilma

I am ready to hear an alternative but I am afraid that you didn’t offer any. Doing nothing is not an option as far as I am concerned. The companies that are being sold have been bleeding our economy for decades. Mengistu should have never nationalised them in the first place. But at times you seem to suggest also that we should have stayed where we were during the emperor’s time. Collective wisdom seems to think that we are lagging behind the countries in our category let alone the ones in the higher league. Modernising and preparing our economy for the future is not something that can wait.
I hope that you are not suggesting that there is sufficient capital in the country to take control of all the investments needs? Well that as not been the case so far. But there is nothing also which convinces me that ‘foreign’ means bad. There are news about the japanese investing in America or the Chinese buying Volvo (from americans who had bought it from the original owners the swede years earlier) every other day. Not to mention the biggest football clubs in the UK and France being owned by Russians or Qataris . All these examples are to say that foreigners coming and investing in our countries is not something that we need to be too concerned about (just normal caution aside). It is happening everywhere including the developed countries.

I agree with you that our political system needs fixing and so does the justice system. But we cannot spend resources to hold national discussions ( i read referendum) to decide whether to allow a Chinese company to build a hotel in Addis or not. Whatever is built; hotel, beer factory or anything else is creating far more value to our economy (thus our people ) than those exporting their finished products to us from afar. We get to have a few more jobs here. And as an Ethiopian i aspire to have more of those jobs that prepare us for the global economy than those labour intensive and old jobs or those of shopkeepers which is what we get if we resort to just importing the finished products.

By the way you didn’t also get your numbers right but I think we all understood from the rest that you meant to add the two figures to get the percentage for those less than 54.

I know if doesn’t work retrospectively, if possible could have said how much Ethiopians would have done to develop Ethiopia and empower Ethiopians if all those billions of Dollars were not embezzled and reported to be in foreign banks amounting in a tone of tens of billions of dollars. If it were used for people by that which is by the people it would have empowered locals rather than cater to overloads Arabs and Indians for extra money for deposit in foreign bank accounts of dictators at expense of natives. Unfortunately, that Weyane which has no national native’s interest, which contradicts founding document of TPLF, TPLF Manifesto, that stated objective, entailed Weyane is not for human resource development, and local empowerment for future challenge. What if not all that Derg nationalized were transferred to Weyane government controlled companies EFFORT and likes in the name of privatization. If is if but real is Weyane is making people poor.

Stop b!tching dude! You’ve become another poster child of the diaspora wounded dogs crying like a baby.
I know that deep wound you people sufferd from the hands of the Woyanes, phisically and psychologically might take a long time to heel, and it is hard to get over it so easlly. but if you keep crying and b!tching like this, may the devil have mercy on you, I’m telling you, you’ll only end up creating your own hell, which you cannot avoid or forget even with a barrel of your favorite TEJ.
The past is passed dude! “Bediro bere yaresse yelem” sibal alsemahim?
Your fake Ettyopiawinet has ended long time ago. We are in a different era now. A NEW ERA! addis zemen!
Today’s Ethiopia is an Ethiopia for all! Regardless of ethinicity, religion, language, whatever differences we have.
That PRETENTIOSNOUS time of yours has gone dude! You cannot claim “man ale alene ettopyawi” anymore!
One Ethiopia for all and all Ethiopians for one Ethiopia!
Sip some more Tej for some temporary relief and go to bed. Ante tejam! And stop blogging while drunk.
“Hod yabbawin tej yawetawal” endemibalew, you’re only making an ass of yourself. We understand what you’re going through. Just take it easy dude!
Stop the hallusination! We are in the 21st century!

Here are some of the fancy words from AZ.. funny!

B!tching
Diaspora dog
Cry babay
Tejam

Still, you are in the insult mode. No originality, no insight. Only #1 in place holder not much substance. Is there any chance for you and others like you to ever discus and accept facts? I guess not.

Well, bro.. it is what it is. We are dealing with dictators in Ethiopia and on nazret as well. Too bad you see nothing wrong with the abuse of the poor indigenous people your GOE displaces. That was the topic and not a slug fest of insults. Hey.. you cant help yourself cause talent such as yours is acquired only through upbringing. “Asadagi yebedelw” sibal alsemahem jal.. that’s you.

True that Mesfin B. We shall engage with pride, class, knowledge and the understanding we are all Ethiopians and our differences are political and nothing else. We shall never stoop to their level or else, we are no better.

Long Live Ethiopians UNITED!

I am glad that we all ignorance reading and writing.I think this is shame for all of you acting like neighborhood women who exchanges insult too each other.The truth is your level is still there never grow babies .

ተነስ ወገን ዘመድ
የኢትዮጵያ ትውልድ
ሀገር አንብታለች ወሰን ተደፍራለች
ህመሟ ጸንቶባት መፍትሄ አታለች
ግብራተ አከላቷ ህዋሷቷ ደርቋል
ጥራ እንኳ እንዳትጮህ ከናፍርት ተዘግቷል
ተነስ አትዘንጋት እምዬን አትርሳት
ህይወት በከኖ ነው አይሆንም ያለ እናት ፡፡
ንገረኝ ወንድሜ ንገረኝ እህቴ
ምን ይሆን ያስረሳን
የፍቅርን አንድነት
ሆድ ሞልቶ እንደሆነ
በጠዋት አይቀሬ ነውና ይርባል በምሽት፡፡
የአምላካችን ቃሉ እንደሚናገረን
አንዱ የራሱን ብቻ ጥቅም ከሚከውን
የበጃል ቢያስከብር የባልንጀራውን፡፡
የአብርሃም ዘር ነኝ አሌያም የከሌ ዘር
ብሎ አይመጻደቅ ሌላውንም ያክብር
ከቆዳችን በታች ሁላችን ደም አለን
የሚያመሳስለን የአብ ተምሳሌት ነን
እንቁም ለእውነት ለሰበአዊመብት
ሰላም እንዲሰፍን እንታገል እንክፈል መስዋዕት፡፡

Even if it is not related I want to ask nazret.co very important question; my question is why nazret.com didn’t post the interview of the high ranking EPRP member Ato Eyasu alemayehu and Ato Fasika belete’s interview because it is very important and fact respond that the public need to discus about it.
