The Disgraceful State of Higher Education in Ethiopia

For the minority clique who are on the helm of the Ethiopian people, tyranny is democracy, repression is freedom, concentration of wealth in the hands of its inner circle is economic growth and development. 

One cannot understand the sad state of higher education in Ethiopia without understanding TPLF/EPRDF’s distractive political and economic agenda
One cannot understand the sad state of higher education in Ethiopia without understanding the regime’s distractive political and economic agenda in thecountry

By Alem Mamo,

TPLF/EPRDF’s major bragging source over the last number of years has been its ‘achievements’ in the education sector, particularly in university education. The ruling group constantly brandishes its statics about the ‘expansion’ of higher learning in Ethiopia. What is not included in the fraudulent statistics is the obliteration of quality and depth of teaching and learning in these so-called ‘universities.’

As we have seen in most of the TPLF/EPRDF failed and corrupt policies, the establishment of these so called ‘universities’ is nothing more than a construction contract to its own business conglomerates and university administration appointment to its loyal cadres.  Continue reading The Disgraceful State of Higher Education in Ethiopia

Some Policy Considerations Regarding the Ethiopian Outmigration

Ethiopia claims that it has enjoyed double-digit real economic growth for about a decade and that it is a stable nation. But the massive outmigration of its people points to a different reality

By Seid Hassan and Minga Negash,

IN OUR 19 December 2013 article entitled ‘Explaining the Ethiopian outmigration: incentives or constrains’ we alerted readers and policy makers in Ethiopia about the push, pull and mediating factors of outmigration in general and outlined the factors as they relate to Ethiopia. In this short article we aim to discuss further the incompatibility between macroeconomic growth and outmigration and close the piece by outlining potential mitigation strategies.  Continue reading Some Policy Considerations Regarding the Ethiopian Outmigration

Poor Ethiopia is Rich in Computer Espionage

With a much less technical knowledge, the Ethiopian regime apparently bought commercial spyware, essentially off the shelf, and hire an Italian ‘Hacking Team’ to spy citizen living abroad

By WND,

Amid all the reports of spying on Americans by the U.S. government, through the National Security Agency, FBI and others, the complaint filed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation on behalf of a man identified only by the pseudonym of Mr. Kidane takes allegations to a whole new level.

The complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington alleges the Ethiopian government infected his computer so that it could wiretap his private Skype calls and monitor his family’s every use of the computer for months on end.  Continue reading Poor Ethiopia is Rich in Computer Espionage

The CBC Should Do More to Include a Balanced Account of Events on Eritrea

Mebrahtu Teclesion Berhe got a special prize from CJFE for a JOB well done. He then got free airtime from CBC radio to lie through his teeth – unchallenged. CBC Concealed its doors to Eritrean-Canadians again.

By CECCO,

The “As it Happens” program with Carol Off and Jeff Douglas, interviewed an individual yesterday claiming to have been a journalist in Eritrea.

The CBC gave Mr. Mebrahtu Teclesion Berhe the privilege of telling his account of events in Eritrea. We are troubled however that it appears no other point of view was made available by the CBC to its listeners. Continue reading The CBC Should Do More to Include a Balanced Account of Events on Eritrea
