    Now you are talking, albeit the fact it is run by TPLF and TPLF affiliated enterprise. That opportunity should be availble under free enterprise system with private land ownwership available to every citizen anywhere in Ethiopia. Large scale farming for export as well as to alleviate shortage of food is commendable leaves the economic strangle of by TPLF and TPLF affiliated enterprises remains intact.

    To say the lest Sheik Al-ahamoudi has long been embraced and adored by UEDF, eventhough he is a party member of TPLF/eprdf regime and Dr. Aregawi Berhe of ex-TLF has infiltrated into UEDF, I believe as new member. What an ironey of implicitely sustaining TPLF/eprdf regime.

    Business is good news for Ethiopia. Apart from the great benefit economic vertical diversification the processing infrastructure will bring the ancillary business activity to our homeland and for this I am grateful beyond my politics.

    Business is good news for Ethiopia! Apart from the great benefit economic vertical-diversification will bring to the immediate region, it is also the processing infrastructure which will accrue ancillary business activity to our homeland: and for this I am grateful beyond my politics.

    The all inclusive mafia organization called EPRDF has a logo and all sorts of anti-Ethiopia elements in it.And each member of this distructive organization has a role to play and a mission to carry out.They are thieves.They sell what they steal left and right;girls,babies,and lands.A manufutrurer and producer;Al-Amoudi is a philantrophist and makes a donation.He has a massive apetite for Girls and meat.He sells rice and gold to the customers in the middle east and keeps girls for himself and makes profit and illegitmate babies in Ethiopia.He also wraps gifts and sends them to the clients.What better place will he find other than Ethiopia? For the entrepreneurs and investors:Ethiopia,the land of tomorrow,the slogan reads.
