ESFNA vs Dr Abiy

Apparently, a letter from the new prime minister office has been sent through American embassy to Ethiopian Sport Federation in North America (ESFNA) asking if the prime joins this great sport festival in Dallas in a month time.

To start with, I dont see anything wrong with the letter, it doesnt matter whether the letter was sent through the embassy or direct from PM office, and also, it doesnt matter if PR works involved in it, some people are suggesting that individuals from inside ESFNA are involved in facilitating the idea of inviting the prime minister.

Let us stop suspicious mind, knowing Dr Abiy so far, I think he is willing to attend ESFNA sport festival, and also nobody from PM office has denied about the letter. So, let us forget about who sent the letter or who was involved in the PR work, etc. Let us focus on whether the new prime minister should attend the festival or NOT.

In my independent opinion, the decision taken by ESFNA committee not to invite the prime minster for this year sport festival, is absolutely correct for many complex reasons. Dr Abiy should not take the decision personal.
The problem with Dr Abiy is that he is too fast, [yeChokolle Jib Qend Yinneksal]... there was a song in afan oromo [yashegeto suta-suta kufften najala duta].

There are things that need to be done quickly, for example releasing all prisoners, lifting the state of emergency, starting dialogue with genuine opposition groups, establishing independent judicial authorities very crucial to build trust and to attract investors, creating structure for democracy, etc.

There are also things that need to be thought through very carefully before making decisions.
For example, there are complex issues in diaspora, Dr Abiy is positive person, he only sees the things on the surface.

Diasporas are not in one basket, there are political divisions, ethnically divided communities, there are old established diasporas, there are new comer diasporas, there are undocumented diasporas, etc. etc. Not all diasporas are want to come back home, if you have young children or mortgage very difficult to return home until the children become independent to lead their own lives.

For most diasporas the only way to get work permits or residential documents is by seeking mainly political asylum or country-less person like Somalians, sometimes religious asylum case, sexuality asylum case, victims of honor killing like in Pakistan or witchcraft victims in Africa, etc etc.
When Dr Abiy travels around the world telling international communities that everything is [alga-be-alga] in Ethiopia, unknowingly he spoils the cases of the new comers, when the world hear from the leader of the country they would assume that everything is perfect in Ethiopia and reject the cases. It is good to invite diasporas to return home but at the same time diasporas are helpful in terms of remittance wherever they live in diaspora. There are diasporas like me who would love to return home if things are smooth without being harassed by woyane officials but at the moment there is no guarantee.

Dont forget that diasporas are a big asset or a big power for a country, many developing countries are built by diasporas, like China, The Philippines, Ireland, etc. diasporas can be very helpful to their home country not only financially but also politically diaspora communities can put pressure on United Nations in favor of their home country. For example, Ethiopians living in Israel can put pressure on Israeli government for the interest of Ethiopia, the same goes to Ethio-Americans can be powerful to influence positive policy towards Ethiopia. So, the regime in Ethiopia should not underestimate the power of diasporas, as we have witnessed HR-128 case.

If I was Dr Abiy I would play double card, on one hand I would accept foreign aid in the name of rehabilitating returnee refugees, on the other hand I would close my eyes let people seek political asylum or whatever, at the end of the day the benefit is for our country, you got to be smart, dont be a fool house-negro for whiteman. Because... there are no enough jobs in Ethiopia even for those graduates chewing chatt all day, manufacturing masses of prostitutes, these flood of youth will overthrow you, it doesnt matter if you are Mr angel prime minister. Ethiopia will never provide jobs for everybody no matter what. India exports quality IT personnel to Europe and America and massive income generated from that. It is not only goods which are exported.

In fact, if I was Ethiopian government.. if our sisters would like to travel in Arab countries, I would provide them with proper course how to survive in Arab countries, teach them basic Arabic language and Arab cultures, hygiene, etc. at the end of the course issue them with certificates. I would regulate to make sure no underage girls travel to Arab countries, above all.. I pass order to all embassies that their primary job is to look after the well-being of citizens living in foreign countries. Otherwise, Dr Abiy will travel again and again to release citizens from foreign prisons or to collect corpses again and again. Which is why I have been saying that Dr Abiy needs to do groundwork at home first.
