Ethiopia still needs a ‘strong hand’: PM

July 24, 2014 (CNBC) — hailemariamThe World Bank is “wrong” about how hard it is to do business in Ethiopia, Hailemariam Desalegn the country’s prime minister has told CNBC.

In its latest report on the country published in May 2014, the World Bank highlighted that Ethiopia had slipped in its Doing Business ranking due to deterioration in investor protection, registration of property, access to finance and competitiveness.

But in an exclusive interview with CNBC’s Yousef Gamal El-din on Access Africa, Desalegn rejected the organization’s latest findings saying “what the report says and what’s happening on the ground are to the contrary”. Read more…

png;base642abe939c2ea013a1July 24, 2014 (Addis Voice) — Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn faced a stinging humiliation as Azusa Pacific University (APU), whose motto is “God First”, has withdrawn an honor it had already bestowed on him. The university administration had to reverse its decision to honor Mr. Desalegn in light of gross human rights violations in Ethiopia being perpetrated by the regime he serves.

The administration of the American evangelical university made the decision in an emergency meeting last Friday after this reporter raised a number of critical questions on whether honoring a human rights violator was consistent with APU’s core values and motto. The Global Alliance for the Rights of Ethiopians (GARE) also wrote a letter highlighting gross human rights violations being perpetrated by Mr. Desalegn and the TPLF-led regime he is serving.

Ethiopia – Committee on the Rights of the Child – 69th Session – July 2014

IOYA Collaboration Report  | July 23, 2014

ethiopian_map_2The Advocates for Human Rights, in collaboration with the International Oromo Youth Association, submitted a report for the Pre-Sessional Working Group of the Committee on the Rights of the Child. This report identifies numerous violations of the rights of children in Ethiopia, particularly with respect to the rights of the child to equality, life, liberty, security, privacy, freedom of expression and association, family, basic health and welfare, education, and leisure and cultural activities. Unless otherwise noted in the report, these violations occur without distinction based on the ethnic group of the child. In some cases, however, children belonging to the Oromo ethnic group—the largest ethnic group in Ethiopia—face discrimination or other rights violations unique to their ethnicity. The Advocates has worked extensively with members of the Ethiopian diaspora for purposes of documenting human rights conditions in Ethiopia. Since 2004, The Advocates has documented reports from members of the Oromo ethnic group living in diaspora in the United States of human rights abuses they and their friends and family experienced in Ethiopia.

World Bank Urges Ethiopia to Devalue Birr to Boost Export

By William Davison

July 22, 2014 (Bloomberg) — Ethiopia’s birr is overvalued and the country would benefit from a devaluation to boost export revenue and accelerate economic growth, the World Bank said.

Reducing the currency’s value by 10 percent in real terms may lead to a 5 percent increase in stalled export earnings and a 2 percent increase in growth, Lars Moller, the bank’s chief economist in Ethiopia, told reporters today in the capital, Addis Ababa.

Ethiopia last devalued its currency by 17 percent against the dollar in September 2010. Since then, the birr has appreciated in real terms by more than 50 percent, leading to a currency that’s overvalued by 31 percent, Moller said at a presentation of the lender’s third Ethiopia Economic Update.

By Ahmed Abdi | July 22, 2014

A-Benishangul-man-in-JalabeyahEthiopia has been a threat to the peace and stability of the Horn of Africa , the north of Africa as well as Nilotic peoples since the creation of this strange nation of Abyssinia (Fake Ethiopia) .

The nations of the Horn of Africa have been facing maltreatment from the successive fake regimes of Abyssinia that have been exercising a policy based on bloody-wars- the same war that the merciless TPLF-junta came to power in 1991.

Abyssinia (Ethiopia) availed the competitions between European colonial powers in the black Continent,Africa. Specially the rivals of France and Italy that had been competing against each other to gain Ethiopia as their main outsourcing or to find a place for marketing for their goods; therefore, Menelik II received enormous support from Italy’s rival, France.
