  1. I believe this will not be the first time a person from the old country was nominated for the list and elected. If he is elected he deserves every letter of it!!!

  2. Is Time Magazine now competing with Nobel Prize and soliciting votes to call Abiy A. person of the year? I see that rganizations carelessly throw all kinds of awards on people who good in public relations and manipulating the media than doing anything good to their people.

    How can Time miss that more than any other year thousands ot innocent people have been killed in the country due to ethnic- political violence which Abiy led party – government has done nothing about. In fact, the police and security on the government pay roll stand by and look when people are killed. Not a single person has been charged for that encouraging more of the same.
    Add to this, millions that are displaced and unable to return home. Likewise, the government is silent when houses of poor people are demolished under the pretext of illegality built despite valid title deeds.

    I wonder how Abiy qualified in the firt place to be among the 100 from whom people are asked to vote for? Even admitting that he deos not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize, he has opted for a low key presence and no lectures or interviews. If I were him, I will not go to get the money. Insted I will send them my bank account for direct transfer.

    For those who do not know: Emperor Haile Selassie was Time’s Man of the Year | 1936. Time carried the Emperor’s photo on its Jan. 6, 1936 publication. Click next to see the photo: (http://content.time.com/time/covers/0,16641,19360106,00.html) You read history? What happened in 1936 in Ethiopia? Check on line what made the Emperor “man of the year”. Time also gives reasons why they made him so.

    I think Time is to repeat the same mistake it committed when it designated the Emperor “man of the year”.

  4. Dr. Abiye Ahmed and Shri Narendrs Modiji are likely to be the greatest surprise to be the man of the year on Time Magazine.

    In 1936 HIM Haile Selassie I was the Man of the year on Time Magazine.

    I have voted for Dr. Abiye Ahmed the PM of Ethiopia and Shri Narendra Modi the PM of India.

    Both of them have have made GREATEST contribution to world peace in the midst of worst local problems in their respective countries.

    Remaining steadfast in UNITY in DIVERSITY where radicals and divisive and scessionist are bent upon breaking their respective countries.

  5. Homeless people are offered cages so Addis Ababa gets beautified. These weather affecting temporary housing containers are not permanent housing where we homeless people would like to live in for long. Our goals are real heavenly condos , We want humane residences condos, these cooking frying pots containers that get too hot during the day times heat and get freezing cold at night times , are just transitional housings for us the homeless people to use as stepping stones to transition from homeless Street life to the real humane housing condos permanent housing.
    We are not going to be swept under the rug, just so we stay out of the views of the mojas diplomats by being caged in these metal boxes . We want condos nothing less.

    HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT !!!!

  6. Abiy Ahmed is not in the TIME magazine’s shortlist of person of the year for 2019. We’re stuck with Emperor Haile Selassie (EHS) as the only person of the year from Ethiopia in close to a hundred years. Maybe Ethiopians should call EHS person of the century.

    Are we to mourn or cherish the rejection of Abiy a.? Have your say.

    Below is the shortlist:

    -House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
    -Mark Zuckerberg
    -President Trump
    -Megan Rapinoe
    -The Whistleblower
    -President Xi Jinping
    -Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern
    -Greta Thunberg
    -Hong Kong protesters
    -Rudy Giuliani

  7. Who will be TIME’s 2019 Person of the Year?

    TIME has released the last five contenders today. They are House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President Trump, the Whistleblower, Greta Thunberg and Hong Kong protesters. It will reveal its Person of the Year tomorrow, December 11.

    Let me guess: TIME’s person of the year is the Whistleblower.

    Confirmation is to come from TIME. Good luck Mr., Mrs. or Miss Whistleblower! But who are you?
