Ethiopia assured unity despite evil desideration of its historical enemies


Conjurers, demons, all those white raciest married to evil spirit want to batter with the sacred heart of Ethiopia and yearn to see various flags haul up from its debris. After committing crimes after crimes holding Bible and changing tactics from enslaving to colonization and publicly scrambling Africa, now some western neo colonialists managed instigating conflict aiming at forming de facto state sponsoring ipso facto friend.

However, as a verse of the bible goes: “For there is no enchantment against Jacob, no divination against Israel,” Numbers 23:23, unlike age long divide and rule legacies of raciest, Ethiopians continue standing together despite worrisome and temporal fraternal conflict.

This week witnessed the strong bond among Ethiopians in this regard. Victory of Adwa and its commemoration which is an eye opener for the emancipation of the black people that Ethiopians celebrated in harmony slams westerns pessimism.

No matter how hard they tried to break bonds of unison among the Amhara, the Oromo and other fellow brothers of Ethiopia, the commemoration of the Adwa victory spoke much about mysterious magnetism of Ethiopia though some elements wish the opposite.

They have been in hast to see the last breath of Ethiopia for exaggerated hypocrisy as they manage the cosmos. Predict they the country would be a mere history, sponsored evils, and groups what they once labeled as state terrorists.

They call on the diplomatic community to leave Ethiopia and promised for officials an asylum if they left the country as they did decades before. They have been weaponizing every media grapevine of the US led western defaming and demonizing Ethiopia.

Though it was in vain to extenuate the matter and time seemed to be in its mood of the dark of the darkest for Ethiopia, surprisingly leaders and fellow Ethiopians played their card well and began to move in accordance with justice and truth.

It was crystal clear that tenets of journalism were violated, reputed media houses revealed to be they had been mouthpieces of capitalists and elements with self-interest. And so the ball rolls, Ethiopia continues on the right truck hosting events and pulling trigger of shame on perjurers.

Unlike enemies and pessimism of campaigns stirring fear and sowing terror, Addis Ababa and other historical and traditional cities had discharged their responsibility of being a host of festivals. And people from every corner of the world mainly Ethiopian born foreign citizens paid tribute for the Ethiopianism more than Ever. There are also on lookers from every part of the world such sensuous beauties and it is common to see passionate outburst of societies of the oversea community.

Meskal, the finding of the true cross, Timket, Ethiopian Epiphony, Irrecha, Eid Alfter are the most notably celebrated festivals in Addis Ababa metropolis. The practice, apart from its paramount importance in the tourism sector as we learn from the experience of carnivals celebrated in various parts of the world particularly in Latin America countries, it is apparently a trophy to showcase Ethiopia is the hub of peace and western sponsored Media need to think.

It might not be hyperbole that it was time Ethiopians stood together and combat every challenge hand in hand with solidarity and coexistence, mysteries magnetism among the diverse nation.

Over such precarious situation, Ethiopia has hosted various big events such as festivals and international and continental submits. Irreecha thanks giving day of the Oromo and the marking of formation of new government, Mesqal, (the finding of the true cross Timket (Ethiopian Epiphany) have been celebrated peacefully.

At such critical time, different ethnic groups have joined the Oromo in celebrating the Irrecha festival more than ever though it is difficult to put it in empirics; hence the initiative is a good stride in the country’s journey of nation building. On the other hand, the formation of the new government and the involvement of African brothers and sisters is a spring board for The Horn integrity and real African unity. Really, such magnetism will continue to bloom as Narsceieist view and the politics of identity and resentment ceased to exist.

Besides, hardly had the world to cope up with changes of circumstances ushered by manmade and natural disasters. COVID 19 has had a devastating impact on human, economic, social and political activities since the outbreak and the evolution from epidemic to pandemic.

Although COVD-19 has crippled the global economy and slowed down the investment sector, it is well known that some countries have seen a boom in the COVID era and have made significant profits in the sector. Ethiopia is one of the few countries in the world withstanding the pandemic though the global political arena and internal conflict is a stab in the back for the mighty country in the Horn.

On the other hand, Investment went on despite worrisome, thanks for multi-polarism and strategic partners all over the globe, Ethiopia is on the fore front of attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Ethiopia’s foreign policy has been centered on economic diplomacy, at the core of which is attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Diplomats have been tasked to promote investment opportunities, incentives, laws, rules, and regulations and recruit investors in the priority sectors identified by the Government. Therefore, as a part of its annual plan, each diplomatic Mission takes the assignment of recruiting a specific number of investors, based on which the annual performance of the Mission and the individual diplomats is evaluated.

Ethiopia’s remarkable economic growth has partly been attributed to the economic-centered foreign policy and diplomacy that the country has fittingly designed and aggressively implemented.

While the foreign policy has, for decades, been directed towards attracting FDI as a key priority, the coming into power of Prime Minister Abiy has enabled a new chapter where the legal and institutional framework, as well as administrative procedures pertaining to investment in general and FDI in particular, have been significantly reformed towards a more liberal, early and favorable system.

With the Government’s introduction of the Home-Grown Economic Policy, the primary focus of the Foreign Policy has been promoting and implementing this program. While implementing this program requires more aggressive diplomacy, the program has eased the diplomatic work by introducing inherently attractive and liberal initiatives.

Uplifting Ethiopia’s regional and global influence requires a wide range of measures at home and abroad. First, to be a regional hegemony, Ethiopia must be at peace with itself as a house divided against itself cannot stand. Therefore, addressing the prevailing insecurity and armed conflict is a matter that cannot be left for tomorrow. The primary objective of any foreign policy is to maintain the security and national integrity of the country. For countries like Ethiopia, domestic factors are arguably the most important determinants of foreign policy. Domestic problems increase the country’s vulnerability for external interference and decrease its regional and global image and influence. This is exactly what is happening now in Ethiopia.

The experiences of many African and some non-African countries show that an armed conflict is not an absolute impediment to FDI. Investors always anticipate challenges and provide solutions in advance. Secondly, the Government has taken bold investment-related reforms, including the legal and institutional frameworks and administrative measures that ease doing business in Ethiopia.

The reforms have caught the eyes of investors, and several foreign investors have decided to take a risk. Thirdly, we live in a multipolar world where several middle powers are making notable influence and contributions in less developed countries like Ethiopia. Multipolarism has created the advantage of widening policy options for Ethiopia as it no more relies on the will of a single partner to get what it needs to address its challenges.
