Ethiopia protests spark Internet shutdown and fears of high death toll after popular singer killed (Washington Post)
News Alert: At least 50 people killed as protests over assassinated Oromo artist continue; police confirm arrest of Jawar Mohammed, Bekele Gerba & 33 others (Addis Standards)
By Hama Tuma:
The world is being ravaged and its economy decimated by an invisible enemy called Covid19 partly because of ill-advised decisions made by some short-sighted world leaders. Not too long ago the most incompetent and dubious individual was appointed to head the most prominent international public health organization, the WHO.

15 January 2020 (SOCEPP) – The regime in Ethiopia is an Oromo ethnic chauvinist regime that has let loose extremists of all sorts on the people with particular focus on ethnic cleansing of innocent Amharas. The foreigners who back the Abiy regime have propagated so much falsehood on the reality that many can be excused if they take the regime in Addis Abeba as a reformist (which it is not) and Ethiopian.
SOCEPP ( 21 December 2019) – The regime in Ethiopia benefits from a vast and orchestrated positive campaign in its favour by its Western supporters and even the ethnic cleansing and dictatorial PM has been given the Nobel Peace Prize recently. But, the reality in Ethiopia shows a grim picture of brutal ethnic cleansing, genocide against minorities and Amharas, and an overall trampling on the basic rights of the people.

Ethiopia’s political opening under Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has won well-deserved accolades but also uncorked dangerous centrifugal forces, among them ethnic strife. With international partners’ diplomatic and financial support, the government should proceed more cautiously – and consultatively – with reforms that could exacerbate tensions.
What’s new? Clashes in October 2019 in Oromia, Ethiopia’s most populous region, left scores of people dead. They mark the latest explosion of ethnic strife that has killed hundreds and displaced millions across the country over the past year and half.
The system designed to fuse an unwieldy nation together is now tearing it apart.
When the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) ruling coalition established the system of ethnic federalism after coming to power in 1991, it served a clear purpose. Following the end of the war, the post-conflict government led by Meles Zenawi needed to balance the demands of over 90 ethnic groups, many of which were organised into armed nationalist movements. Ethnic federalism, which divided Ethiopia into nine semi-autonomous states (and eventually two multi-ethnic cities), granted larger ethnic groups a greater degree of self-governance and offered recognition and reduced levels of autonomy to many smaller groups.

An Ethiopian proverb states that first witness for the rat is the small bird. The Ethiopian charlatan of a Prime Minister, who got awarded the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, was given praise by the antiquated body called the Nobel Institute. I will come to the reasons they gave to justify their condemnable decision later but first what is the relevance of the prize in real terms? Why is it considered a farce played on Ethiopians and the world by professional pettifoggers in Oslo.
There is a huge propaganda blitz by the powers who brought to power the Abiy Ahmed Lemma Megersa group to power to cover up the deplorable and even dangerous situation Ethiopia, which given time, may plunge Ethiopia into a disastrous and catastrophic ethnic war to destabilize further the whole Horn of Africa region. Not much has changed from the point of the violation of human rights in the country.

Theorizing celebrity cultures: Thickenings of media cultures and the role of cultural (working) memoryPreamble
In a Country like Ethiopia where people's democracy has never been established historically, the more common pattern is one of under institutionalization in which political elites-groups are weak and often fragmented entitiesrelying on a single charismatic individual for leadership and guidance. These so called political elites, including the current dictator, are weak in the sense of not being able to penetrate society.
The propaganda blitz notwithstanding, the repressive system in Ethiopia is continuing. The "old-new" rulers have sponsored ethnic killings, no action against hate mongers instead arrested close to 3000 young peaceful in and around Addis Abeba. Their crime? Upholding the historic Ethiopian flag, condemning and calling for the arrest of the ethnic cleansers and demanding the release of all political prisoners.

Title: Congratulations to Eritrea and Ethiopia Uniting as One People with One Shared Destiny
By Mammo Muchie: DST/NRF SARChI Research Professor, Tshwane University of Technology, Pretoria, South Africa
Ethiopian officials say one person has died and dozens more are injured, after an explosion at a rally for the new PM Abiy Ahmed.
Earlier Mr Abiy had said that several people had died.
Mr Abiy described it as an "unsuccessful attempt by forces who do not want to see Ethiopia united".
He was whisked away immediately after the blast, thought to be from a grenade thrown amid thousands of people in Addis Ababa's Meskel Square.
Despite the hue and cry on reforms and change in Ethiopia, the regime's hostility and negative practices against the EPRP continues.
- Not one EPRP political prisoner has been released despite the fact that dozens are imprisoned since 1991. EPRP prisoners are not even recognized as such.
The Ethiopian government must intervene to protect thousands of ethnic Amharas who are on the verge of displacement due to violent attacks on their homes by ethnically-motivated youth groups in Oromia Regional State, Amnesty International said.
THOUSANDS OF POLITICAL PRISONERS STILL IN PRISONS
The repressive regime in Addis Abeba, convulsed by continuing mass protest, has been forced to admit it holds political prisoners and has released a thousand or so of them. The regime holds more than 45,000 political prisoners in secret and official camps (gulags) and prisons all over Ethiopia.
CONDEMN THE ASSASSINATION OF GEZAHEGN G.MESKEL
Human rights activist and a militant for democracy, Gezahegn Gebre Meskel, was assassinated in broad day light in Johannesburg. His killer has escaped and many Ethiopians there are certain that he was hired killer working for the embassy of the regime in Addis Abeba. Gezahegn, a fearless militant, was the target of many death threats from the embassy, witnesses have revealed. Gezahegn, 48, is survived by his wife and two children.
The regime in Addis Abeba has mocked at the persistent and popular demand to release ALL political prisoners in Ethiopia. Conservative estimate of Ethiopian political prisoners has put the figure at least 45,000

I wanted to write this article since last week but put it off due to lack of time. Netanyahu accepted a UN plan to end the deportation threat on 37,000 African refugees and I almost abandoned the idea of writing this article. Thanks to the extremist consistency of the prime minister (who rejected the UN plan ) here I go with my article.
For many Ethiopians, this is the season of the ultimate Dickensian Paradox. For some, it is the best of times, for others, it is the worst of times. Some are high in hopes, others are still shrugging their shoulders. Ultra-optimists are waving their, ‘a new leader for the new day’ placard, cautious souls are beeping their alarm lights. It’s a pandemonium par excellence. Until the dust settled and we start talking about things with certitude, better dealing with what we know.
