Chinese Investments in Africa: “Chopsticks Mercantilism”

Chopsticks Mercantilism

In the early parts of the 21st century, China became an important source of finance for African development. The continent’s infrastructure was in disrepair; it had crumpled after decades of abject neglect and destruction from senseless civil wars. A substantial investment was – and still – needed to rebuild this infrastructure. According to a World Bank Report (2009), “the poor state of infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa—its electricity, water, roads and information and communications technology (ICT)—cuts national economic growth by two percentage points every year and reduces productivity by as much as 40 percent.” To close the infrastructure gap, an annual spending of $93 billion would be required. Africa has to spend US$360 billion on infrastructure by 2040, according to the African Development Bank (AfDB).Chopsticks Mercantilism, China in Africa, China in Ethiopia,

I told you so, Sai Karuturi. But you would not listen!

Sai Ramakrishna Karuturi.

Author’s Note: Last week, the infamous landgrabber in Ethiopia, Sai Karuturi, wrote a letter informing the black apartheid T-TPLF (Thugtatorship of the Tigrean People’s Liberation Front) prime minister that he has had enough and wants out. Karuturi “accused the (T-TPLF) state of nationalizing its farming investments” and demanded “adequate and appropriate redress.” Karuturi also condemned the T-TPLF regime for its decision to “unilaterally and illegally cancel our investment and trade license”. Karuturi threw in the towel and declared, “We stand tired and defeated and wish to exit Ethiopia.”

OPERATION CONSCIENCE: Raising Western Awareness of Ethiopia’s Genocides

Operation Conscience

By David Steinman

The challenge of changing official Western policy toward the ruling regime in Ethiopia has frustrated Ethiopia’s opposition for more than a quarter century.

The West has never taken meaningful steps to stop the crimes committed by Ethiopia’s brutal dictatorship against the Ethiopian people. Given the level of collusion demonstrated for decades, it is not hard to understand why Western donor nations only pay lip service to Ethiopian human rights and democracy while, behind the scenes, trying to avoid doing what’s necessary to solve the problem.

T-TPLF Day of Reckoning

The ten days of T-TPLF kumbaya propaganda charm offensive in Ethiopia

I have heard of the “12 Days of Christmas”. Even sang it. “On the first day of Christmas/ my true love sent to me:/ A Partridge in a Pear Tree/…/”

Who has ever heard of the T-TPLF’s ten days of the Ethiopian New Year (celebrated on September 11, 2017 [Meskerm 1, 2010 Ethiopian calendar]).

Well! The Thugtatorship of the Tigrean People’s Liberation Front (T-TPLF) last week launched a new and ridiculous ten-day propaganda charm offensive to endear itself to the Ethiopian people after 26 years of ironhanded tyrannical rule.

Ethiopia & Eritrea: What will it take to break the deadlock?

Ethiopia & Eritrea

By Prof. Al Mariam

The stalemate along the Ethiopian-Eritrean border benefits almost no-one. Two armies stare at each other across the 1,000 kilometre border – as they have done since June 2000, when the fighting ended. Every so often there is a flare-up. An Eritrean border guard will fire at a refugee attempting to cross the frontier illegally; if the shots are witnessed by an Ethiopian patrol they will return fire and both sides will retaliate with rifle fire and sometimes an artillery barrage.

Mihret Zegeye

Very short message to those whose ears are not yet deaf!

Currently, there is no country without the influence of Satan especially in the leadership of the country in question. Truth be told, Satan has won the hearts and minds of billions of people nowadays including their political and religious leaders. From the US to Russia, from Middle East to Far East, from the Horn of Africa to Australia, every nation on Earth seems to be ruled by this crooked fallen angel, Satan. Of course, one of his headquarters seems to be situated in Ethiopia at Arat Kilo Palace designating Tigray People’s Liberation Front as his ambassadors with full right to exercise his rimless whims.
