  1. I wish this patriot countryman H.E. Mehreteab Mulugeta Haile success in his new appointment. These two noble peoples were not supposed to live in a way they lived for quite some time now and they are not responsible for the misfortune but rather the mismanagement of their affairs. I have said this before on so many occasions and I will say it again. If these industrious people work together the sky will be the only limit for what they can achieve. But they have to bury the hatchet they did not create. Not only burying it but melting and casting it into industrial implements. That has been my dream and will go on to be so until I gasp from my last breath on this good earth. Insha’Allah!!!

  2. Let’s hope His Excellency recovers the properties that were stolen from Ethiopian-Eritreans for us from whoever stole the properties two decades ago.
