A violent crime in the capital


A suspect named Biniyam Fantahun was accused of threatening and raping a 10-year-old boy on November 29, 2019 at around 3:30 in the afternoon, in Kolfe Keranyo sub city, woreda 6, at St. George church cemetery. He had tried to evade the police but was eventually captured. He had pleaded not guilty to the accusations despite the overwhelming evidence against him. However, the court found him guilty after testimonies of many eye witnesses and medical tests from Tikur Anbessa hospital. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison. A similar case was reported earlier where a police officer raped a male child taking advantage of his vulnerability as the child was homeless. The police officer was only sentenced for 9 years. It goes to say that unless a more severe punishment is in place, such crimes will yet prevail.

Trump makes a call to Egypt

The construction of the grand Ethiopian renaissance dam was stared nine years ago and due to corruption and extortion of budget, its completion was delayed by two years. Egypt, with the support of the US, is trying to persuade Ethiopia to sign an agreement that only benefits it. Reuters has reported that President Donald trump has made a call to his Egyptian counterpart president Abdul Fatah Al-Sisi congratulating Egypt for being the first to sign the deal arranged by the US and inform him that the US will do its best to pressure Sudan and Ethiopia to sign it. 


 On related news, The Ethiopian army stationed at Somalia for the past 15 years had made a good partnership with the US. The partnership was quite beneficial for all the three parties, namely Ethiopia, Somalia and the USA. However, the US has claimed that Ethiopia is not an ideal partner due to the current internal unrests that erupt all over the country and therefore has made Kenya its new partner. Kenya was deemed a suitable partner due to its experience with West Gate mall and similar attacks as it can identify and correct such mistakes.” Ethiopia was successful with its handling of the Al-Shabab not because of its army but because it can identify and counter the Al-Shabab’s moves with great efficiency” stated President Trump. Even though the peacekeeping issue in the horn of Africa is quite important to the USA, the country has made a decision to stop its support to the Ethiopian military. This move was made in order to persuade Ethiopia to sign the Grand Renaissance Dam deal which compromises its national welfare. 

Former PM Meles Zenawi’s speech concerning the dam

The reason why Environmentalists and other institutions were against the construction of the Gilgel Gibe Dam was so that Ethiopia would not get foreign loan or funding. The African Development bank, has withheld its funding for the dam even after thorough environmental and economic studies which were even posted on its website. China institutions that also refused to cooperate as it was manipulated by institutions running under the cover of being environmentalists that made a campaign to slander the intentions of Ethiopia. Yet they do not know that the dam can and will be built by the Ethiopian people only. But that does not mean that we must stand by and watch while they do that. It is undeniable that the Ethiopian people will support the construction of the dam as the environmental studies and designs made around it are very persuading.
