armed Somali group operating in Somalia influenced by Jihadi propaganda of extreme Islamic ideology. Though Somalis are mainly Muslims they have been practising a moderate version of Islam.After the collapse of Somalia and the end of Ziad Bare regime Somalia plunged in to civilwar .Somalia is unable to get out of the crisis it has been for decades. The American attempt to stabilize Somalia failed after the shooting down of America’s Apache Helicopter and dragging down of an American soldier on the streets of Mogadishu.The Americans with draw from Somalia and Somalia was forgotten and it’s people were fleeing en mass to all over the world .The world has forgotten Somalia and it become the only failed state in the world.
Some Western companies also started to dump industrial wastes on the off shore of Somalia as it has no Navy to control it’s water territory. A group of Somalis started to patrol the offshore of Somalia with boats . Which letter changed to piracy.
After the 9/11 attack on the US soil and with the rise of Alshaba the United States shifted it’s policy towards Somalia.The democracy and good governance of neighbouring countries was put aside and priority was given to fighting terrorism .Hundreds of millions of dollar aid package was given to neighbouring countries in return to fighting terrorism in Somalia.The US has also opened a drone base in Arbaminch to strike any extremist group in Somalia .
Alshabab become the main extremists group following the defeat of the Union of Islamic courts .It imposed strict Sharia law on the territorys it controlled .Ethiopias effort to defeat the group was successful. But it was unable to bring peace and stability to Somalia .Alshabab has been striking neighbouring Uganada and Kenya with the wave of terror but no incident has so far happened in Ethiopia. With the recent wave of uprising in Ethiopia and the withdrawal of some Ethiopian troops Alshabab was resurrecting and controlling large swaths of Somalia .
Tesfaye gebreab is an Ethiopian born journalist of Eritrean origin.He is very well know for his author of the book the diary of the Journalist (yegazetgnaw mastawesha)which exposed the deeds of the weyanne regime.He him self was able to achieve the highest post with in TPLF regime which he later abandoned it and asked for asylum in the Netherlands.I tried to create communication with him via Facebook but all my attempts were unsuccessful .
His book was widely read in Ethiopia. In fact it was difficult to get his book physically due to the political nature of the book and majority of the peoples read it by soft copy.It exposed the crimes committed by the regime including the assassination of the father of the famous singer Ababo Derare by now the board chairman of Ethiopian Airlines.
Almost all of the computers at Ethiopian airlines have a secret spy ware program called key logger which is used to record every keystroke made by a computer user, especially in order to gain access to passwords and other confidential information.
The company founded to be part of the modernization program of Ethiopia and to link Ethiopia to the other part of the world has now become a cash cow for the minority Tigryan led TPLF regime.Hiring employees has now become based on political beliefs,views,being Tigryan and a member of EPRDF party(the ruling junta) rather than merit and experience.starting from the CEO all key positions are staffed with weyanne members.
They dismiss ,send to prison and spy with out court order on any one whom they see to be against the ruling regime or for any one who criticize the policy of the country.Its to be recalled that so many activist has campaigned for the boycott of the airlines as its the only service giving company which generates foreign exchange for the government extending their life span of their grip on power.so many employees have been sent to prison for the crime they didn’t commit and Its very common to torture employees at the famous Makelawi prison .
