    I do not know why our government officials do not want to learn from the previous mistakes done by former DERG regarding ressettlement programe.Why they are running only to get political benefits before their people.What happen to our ressetlment programe coordinator? Since the DERG regime we are talking a lot about the importance of policy,law and order,strategy,planning and others but still lack of skills and knowledges are betwwen us. Let us stop doing things in the form of ZEMECHA or CAMPAIGN. Unless our mind is free from these strategies, we are unable to do our jobs or missions properly. I do not know the term ZEMECHA may work for military activities only.

    TO Mr. Ewnetu:

    I may not give you a complete answer but I will try to mention few points. (1) Just as mankind can’t learn from previous mistakes, it become a general accepted norm to go in its own ways just as people has not learn from the first world war prior to the starting of the second World War. Weyane is not exception to the law of ignorance. More importantly Weyans is defined MORE THAN this general ignorance because
    it (Weyane) means not thinking, not needing to think and, of course, Weyane means unconsciousness.

    As to Derg and Weyane, there are major differences in managing the national crises such as famine. During Derg, there was a commission established comparatively parallel “RELIEF COMMISSION” and it works perfectly. The Derg was capable of managing the crises despite the war enemies opened against it from every corner. Moreover, the West despite its negative sentiment against communist Mengistu, it controlled the charity providrd by world donors and there was no theft as such and millions have been saved. In todays famine, speciallt in Tigray, people are dying in the thousenda and counting. Weyane can also win the famine not only by reciving forign donors but by wining the heart and mind of the Ethiopian people but they can not as they kill him day and night.

    TO YEKERBELEN:
    I am watching your interaction with the Ethiopian diaspora and people at home. You have indeed, entered the trecherous water where you can not be rescued from slander and or liable charge on the law or statutes of the state you reside. First, let me remind you how you were calling people in different occasions in this Website as follows:

    (1) called an individual “Samuel Ante Banda,’ on 10/3/09, Comment no.6
    (2) Cursed an individual by saying”Go to Hell” on 10/2/2009,Comment no.2
    (3) Called me as agent of “TPLFERS” & “DONKEYS” on 10/11/2009 Comt.no 3

    FACTS ON NO.3. On your “misconduct no.3, you have insulted me as if I falsely asserted the presence of Famine in Tigray. I did not promote fals statement because there is famine that I have watched in my eyes and by the eyes of the world. See yourself at Abbaymedia.com under the Title of:
    (1) The Human Face of Ethiopia’s Resettlement Program – BBC Video
    (2) Abaymedia.com On the Current Affair Vido Section, see “Lack of Rain Cause Famine” (include famine in the south) too.

    Ms. YEKERBELEN ! Your God may forgive you but as human being, I do not have the patience to swallow your rickless and racist remark who can not differenciate between donkey and human being.Moreover, as your God I am not gifted with spritual but was trained in the legal profession to redress wrongs.

    This Memo shall serve to the Webmaster not to distroy from the data as supboena will be issued to provide the whereabout of the offender’s address or identity under United States Criminal Procedure of 2008, as amended.
