got hype?

The NEBE has finally released the decisive election results

wait wait….i could do better

“guess who’s back, guess who’s back, guess who’s back
na na nanana. na na nanana.......”

i know I could still do better…


pardon my amharic

those guys weren’t joking when they forecasted the same thing a day after the election. Their tenquay must be better than my tenquay.

tsegasaurus words of wisdom: Politics and apple cores can’t stay fresh for long in open air

The UEDF is not accepting the results and is going to fight the NEBE at the supreme court

ATTENTION! Ato Kemal Bedri, you’ve done marvelous job with your chairmanship at the NEBE now the EPRDF needs your usual patronage at the Supreme Court.

If they can’t trust the NEBE what makes them think they can trust the court. Don’t they know already that every place of authority is infested with EPRDF pests? it’s just going to substantiate their victory “hey every one look the opposition is going to court. how democratic of them”

first of the gang to lie!

So the Chinese are the first ones to endorse EPRDFs victory. This is according to a press statement by the communist party.

“congratulations EPRDF for winning your third “democratic” election. then again, what do we know about democracy, we’re just a bunch of commies….muah muah muah…NOW NAME ANOTHER STREET AFTER OUR “TREASURED” FRIENDSHIP! how about ‘Ethio Chinese Friendship Road 2’ muah muah muah”

the rest…..

AU….”shhhh, ya ya good job now, can’t you see we busy trying to score a couple of worthwhile seats in the security council”

US….”those Ethiopians, are they helpful or unhelpful?”

UK…..…”I told you all this wouldn’t have happened if our pubs were open all night….fancy a pint?”

Mr. Clarke….”you know that bereket simon has some nerves…”….

Mr. Carter…. -Gone Fishing, Jimmy -

Mrs. Gomez,…beep...beep....beep...

Russia,….”alright who farted in the submarine?”

hellow, any body else?

France:….”Sunny aaaaand 29 degreez? who neez uhhh sunblock quand you ‘ave uhhhh crepes, oui oui crepes”

Mr. T….”I pity da foo”

Looks like everyone is occupied with their own issues.

What now then?

“…It’s alright to get caught
stealing back what you’ve lost….”

so, who’s up for it?

hey! I just heard loud car honks, could this be the beginning of….lemme go check…...
never mind, they are honking at an old lady crossing the road.

who is for reclaiming democracy?

vroom, vroom,….screeccchhh….honk honk

I will rephrase my question….

who wants to be crushed without hesitation for demanding democratic rights?

wait, what’s that piece of paper every one is holding? could this be the opposition calling for……..lemme go check………….never mind, it’s the form for DV2006

HEY C’MON, somebody gotta be down with uniting this country! can you imagine how COOL that would be? emperor tewodros did it


“all men have secrets and here is mine so let it be known…..”

I here by confess I have become a hype-junky. hype gets me going. I said I never liked politics. Things have changed since then, I never knew the polisphere is oooozing with so much hype, I thought I had a supply to last me a life time. Here in the political stink hole I found the mother of all hypes. I was bad, I indulged my self in it like there is no tomorrow. Sadly there is. and a hype less tomorrow. Lately I haven’t been getting my fix, the supply is running low. some people say this might just be the last of it…….

This blog has changed dramatically since I last visited it but I can still tell that the man behind all of this political talk is Tsega. From reading your last few entries, I'm struck with how I am always searching for some grittiness and perhaps some ugliness about my surroundings. I have become bored with reading the paper-- even the Globe and Mail, my favorite obsession a few years ago. I'm afraid that I'm going to become as complacent and as ignorant as everybody else seems to be. It seems like you don't have that option in Ethiopia. You're not always searching for

(sorry about the split message... I have no idea how to blog.)

anything in particular but you're forced into caring because it's not possible to take politics for granted. I think what you have to say is important and I'm glad that people like you are in Ethiopia keeping everybody honest.

I really enjoyed reading this blog and Sarah's as well and it's good to catch up with what's going on in your life in that oh so anonymous way that people from Toronto (or maybe even Calgary?) love to live in. So keep on writing. It's good for you and it's good for me.
