SOCEPP would like to formally register its firm objection and rejection of the fallacious statements made by the head of the political department, Mme Windy Sherman


The EPRP strongly protests the ongoing Afrophobia campaign and the brutal killings of refugees in Durban and other places in South Africa. It is shameful to note that Afrophobic radio programs, the son of Jacob Zuma and even the King of Zulu, Goodwill Zwelrthini, have sprinkled petrol over the fire (demanding that the refuges leave, accusing the refugees of every ill of South Africa,  of being dirty, causing car accidents and of even plotting a coup d'état) and sent the mobs on a killing spree against Africans

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Mobs in South Africa attacked shops owned by immigrants in a poor area of Johannesburg early Saturday following similar violence in another part of the country that killed six people, according to media reports.

The Great Illusion Part VI Isaias Afwerki's Colonial Question

By Worku Aberra

Fictional stories serve useful purposes. Ethiopians tell teret, parables to convey a moral message; and Isaias, the EPLF, and its supporters have been telling the fiction that "Eritrea was a colony of Ethiopia" to sanction independence. Today, other ethnic fundamentalist groups, including the TPLF in the past, are doing the same.

Top WHO official in Thailand denies maid slavery claims


The World Health Organisation’s top official in Thailand has denied beating his Ethiopian domestic helper and treating her like a modern day slave.
The 25-year-old unnamed maid filed a complaint with police last month accusing Dr Yonas Tegegn, the WHO’s representative in Thailand, and his wife of abusing her and forcing her to work without pay for nearly two years.

Tecola and his crocodile tears.

By Yilma Bekele

Crocodile tears (or superficial sympathy) are a false, insincere display of emotion such as a hypocrite crying fake tears of grief. That is what it felt like reading the gentleman’s article after watching the video ‘US Policy: Ethiopia A failed state.’ I was impressed by the powerful presentation.



We will never justify but we can understand the smothering paternalism of the whites like the unmentionable actors and singers who have nominated themselves the voice of Africa.

British support for Ethiopia scheme withdrawn amid abuse allegations

The UK has ended its financial support for a controversial development project alleged to have helped the Ethiopian government fund a brutal resettlement programme. Hundreds of people have been forced from their land as a result of the scheme, while there have also been reports of torture, rape and beatings.

Ethiopia shall overcome.

By Yilma Bekele

In May of 2005 the noble idea of bringing change by peaceful means died a violent death in Ethiopia. The Tigrai People Front declared in no uncertain terms power sharing is not part of the equation. They have proved it three times since then. What part of that do we have a problem accepting?

Repression Stepped Up Linked to Coming May "Election"

General elections in Ethiopia have proved as fruitful as milking the bull. The noted 2005 election led to the defeat of the ruling regime but it decreed martial law, shot some 223 people dead, rigged the election, jailed thousands of opponents and carried on business as usual. Every election time that comes the repression intensifies. It is no different this time as the May general election approaches.

Ethiopians have bitter sweet sayings and proverbs in line with their tradition of double entendres-- or wax and gold. What you hear is not the real message, what you see is not real at all. Go figure. Your mouth is your first enemy--shut it up. And so we say God does not quarrel with you without first preparing a big feast for you. Saydegis aytalam. Self delusion? Maybe, maybe not. May be a cloud has actually no silver lining.

“Bod Geldof is a humanitarian activist. He is also an egotist, a celebrity economist, and quite wrong on Africa”. So wrote, politely, Mr.Greg Mills in the Guardian of March 8/2013. Bob Geldof is a also a businessman who has much profited from the aid business or from what some call the business of hunger.

Elections and helicopter-an Ethiopian drama.

By Yilma Bekele  

I am thinking you must have read my last report on Ethiopian helicopters that made an unauthorized trip to Eritrea. I felt I left the story hanging out there and it is not just fair to my readers not having a closure on the subject. Some might say why dwell on that when there are so many things to discuss regarding our country. I listened and went about looking for important subjects I could write about to enrich our life and become a better informed Diaspora.
