I wish to see an Ethiopia where the rule of law is guaranteed; human and democratic rights of citizen are respected; poverty is eradicated; economic and social prosperity prevails; and free democratic institutions are established.
ለሰብአዊ ክብርህ ለነጻነትህ ስትል ወገን ንቃ!! ዛሬን ተጠቅመን ለነገ ኢትዮጵያችን ተስፋ እንሁናት !!

Ethiopia arrests Muslim leaders after unrest in Addis
A minimum of three members of the 17-person committee and three others were arrested yesterday, group spokesman Ahmedin Jebel said.
“Simultaneously the houses of 24 individuals were searched,” he said by telephone today from the capital. “They stayed the whole night there.”
A group of Muslims gathered around Anwar Mosque today to protest the arrests and state interference in religious affairs, demonstrator Abdul Samad said.
“We can’t elect out leaders,” he said today outside the city’s largest mosque. “And we are being imprisoned.”
Security forces arrested 72 people from a crowd trying to create a “civil disturbance” around Awalia Mosque on July 13, the government said. Police raided the mosque and fired shots and tear gas to disrupt a meeting planned for July 15 where the elections would be discussed, according to Ahmedin.
