Watching CNN, and other inter'l media before my flight, I thought I was going to a war zone. Was in Addis yesterday, In Adama now but there is nothing, No bullets, No tension, bars are open, No roadblocks. There is actually more Millitary presence in Kampala than in Addis Ababa.

A weak leader puts everyone under his governance in danger. He makes the group vulnerable both to internal discord, and external threats. Both of which undermine and ultimately harm the well-being of its members. Be it a family, company or country - this is always the case.

Several sources in #Dessie @Reuters spoke to today are reporting #Tigray|an forces are nowhere near the town. For all those tweeting about the ongoing conflict in #Ethiopia please check your facts before putting it out there. Facts matter.

አብይ የዛሬ ሦስት ዓመት ከነበረበት ፈንጠዝያ አልተላቀቀም፤ ደጋፊዎቹም እንደዛው። ንጹሃን ዜጎች ግን ያለ ተመልካች በየእለቱ ይገደላሉ፤ ለፍትሕም የሚጮህላቸው የለም።

“Abiy’s game plan cannot work,” according to a former British diplomat, citing what he said was a growing expert consensus. “If he tries and fails to destroy Tigray, he will be destroyed himself. If he succeeds, he will never survive the backlash that will follow.”

This is extremely rare. @IMFnews makes no GDP growth projection for #Ethiopia: "For 🇪🇹, projections for 2022–26 are omitted due to an unusually high degree of uncertainty." #Afghanistan, #Lybia & #Syria are the only other countries without data projections for the coming years.

Meaning is about making a difference, not having an audience. It's better to be valued by a few than to be known by many. Your contribution is not the scope of your reach. It's the depth of your impact. Your legacy is not how many footprints you leave. It's how long they last.

ዘመቻው ተጀምሯል UN has to adhere to the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other states. The #Ethiopia|n people have seen enough of the bias & partiality of the UN& its agencies. No more regime change using aid orgs. Enough is enough! #HandsoffEthiopia

Prices in Tigray have risen sharply. These data from an international aid org show a litre of cooking oil in the town of Shire at 400 birr, or nearly $9. That’s compared to just 120 birr in Addis.
