UK based Ethiopian Worldwide Television (EWT) owned by Ethiopian business man ENDALE BEYENE an accountant has folded and stopped broadcasting in the UK, the station which once had offices in Perivale, Middlesex England has been of the air for a considerable amount of time and officials at UK companies house have now announced plans to strike the company of the UK companies register for failing to submit statutory accounts that were due on 26th December 2008.

In addition Cherea Accounting firm also run and managed by ENDALE BEYENE is facing the same striking off procedure.

Ethiopian Worldwide Television (EWT) claimed to broadcast both television and radio programmes, designed to appeal to all ages. Founded in 2004, the London based privately owned broadcasting company sought to promote Ethiopia and enhance economic and social growth in the country, as well as keeping Ethiopians in the Diaspora informed about current developments and local issues in their homeland via satellite, cable and new media journalism, but Ethiopian World wide TV (EWT) never officially had a UK broadcasting licence and it simply bought air time from the UK based Sky TV broadcasting service at the weekend and used to broadcast 2 hours of reruns of news from Ethiopian and Ethiopia music videos.

In an interview with an Ethiopian Newspaper in 2007 managing director ENDALE BEYENE claimed that Ethiopian Worldwide Television had 10.5 million viewers in the UK alone, a claim and figure which was not supported by any independent audits such as Nielsen’s Media Research or any other credible ratings firm.

Calls to the official phone number were not answered, The official Ethiopian Worldwide Television (EWT) website has also since been shut down.

    Good News He is a very corabted person and a big lire. Abuser of his marriage. I think the Ethiopians who live in UK has to wake up and tell him he is wayane spy. Maye be wayane throw him out that’s why he wanted to close his station because he can not afford to ran by him self. He and Mulugeta Asrat is working for wayane. They are big Hodamoch sucking Ethiopians blood. One day the truth will com out.

    For your information, Endale has no known qualification on Media or Accountancy. I know him personally for many years, it is better to say he has a qualification in lies and good in deceiving people. Once I heard from Ethiopian Airlines marketing team source, how they laughed at him when he told them that he has a potential 3 million worldwide viewers. In UK the well known X factor show equivalent of American idol attracted an average audience of 10 million viewers. Endale says he has 10.5 million, well that says it all. Next time Endale might claim he is an astronaut and traveled to the moon on several occasions.
