By the way the articles run over by: nazret . com, mahder . com, Abbaymedia, and etc., regarding the release of Daniel Bekele and Netsanet Demissie from prison last Friday, you’d start to wonder (unless you are the un-wondering type who just buy into every junk handed to you) why the government arrested them [then]?!

Perhaps, being young and all, they made the honest mistake of confusing “good governance” (which, sure enough, is one of the areas of work ActionAid hopes to make a difference in) with “government” and got down, dirty and poltical?!

Or if their long year association with Dr. Taye Woldesemayat and that other angry professor guy who throws journalists against the wall every time they tried to enter the many “Human Rights” meetings he chairs, displeased it?! (No doubt it’s debatable, the fact that Jouranlists can be considered “human” enough to have human rights. Still.. makes you wish Ethiopia’s “shimagles”, especially those involved in politics, could be less “finData”s than Ethiopian youth are. Doesn’t it?).

Or if, being the evil, illogical and inhuman entity that we all know it to be, “yaYnachew Qelem” sileDeBerew?!

    I’d agree with ur last possible reason why these guys got a horrible two yrs at the Kaliti kororo bet. It is YeAyen Qelem 🙂 ……….but Just imagine seeking a pardon from the same ppl who gave orders for the shooting of many civilians ( clearly to curb the lawlessnes following the election fraud…wey gud) for something u haven’t committed!!! if questioned why he got these young men behind bars,the PM would say……’in principle, we should have got them roasted there ,,’.
    By the way it is the same everywhere.If the cost of living increases,it is the gov’t responsible.If u got anyone imprisoned without any wrong doing, it is the same.

    Why their yaYn qelem in parituclar, then, Danny nefse? Seeing that it probably is as brown and uncommon as the rest of us 80 (or more) million folks who spent the last 3 Christmases at home?

    The PM is very clear about YeAyn Qelem. If he doesn’t like it, then u r not lucky under his territory / that includes Mogadishu, ofcourse/.

    C’mon Daniel! You don’t really believe Ethiopia “invaded” Somalia out of spite, do you? Why?! I always had the impression that our government was using Somalia (in a very “grass between elephants” fashion) to settle an old score with Eritrea and, egre mengeduun, as a means of getting a pat on the back by the West as the securer and defender of a “safe from Islamic fundamentalist East Africa”?! Wrong!, by any standards (except by those standards that make America’s prison torturing method at Guantanamo Bay “right”, and Ethiopia’s good ole wefe yilala “cruel & barbarious”). But certainly understandable?!

    If u ask me, i think the gov’t we got have to ‘grow up’ and learn from history ( lenegeru who reads history enji).Personally i think we should settle our problem with Eritrea first / which i admite is going to be very hard/.
    Give the border towns to Eritrea first, and then talk business with Eritrea.
    Do u think we could get a secure port in Somalia with a-soon 100million population?
    Somalia is a wrong place to be.If the PM have the gut,then he should invade Eritrea…then u will few sleepless nights than u have now.

    Lol. Now, don’t get me wrong. I would like to see Isias being put out of his misery like the sick little dog that he is as well as the next Ethiopian. However, invading Eritrea instead of Somalia? Why do we have to invade anyone? Can’t our country put the billions of dollars it wastes annually on military to [good] use?!

    I know! Dumb Question! 🙂
