By CARA ANNA, Associated PressNAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — In parts of Ethiopia’s Tigray region, people now eat only green leaves for days. In every district of the more than 20 where one aid group works, residents have starved to death. More than 350,000 metric tons of food aid are positioned in Ethiopia, but very little of it can get into Tigray. “People’s skin color was beginning to change due to hunger; they looked emaciated with protruding skeletal bones,” the aid group wrote. One Tigrayan humanitarian worker pointed out that most people live or shelter in remote places such as rugged mountains.

With the label Neftegna becoming hackneyed over time, TPLF hatemongers have recently coined another tag, “Amhara elites”, attesting to their interminable disdain for the ethnic Amharas.

For all the pain they’ve directly caused Ethiopia, somebody should know who these “Amhara elites” are? Who are the “Amhara elites”? The recently coined epithetic nickname, “Amhara elites”, doesn’t epitomize ethnic Amharas in political or economic power alone; the same way “Nefetegna” didn’t embody the gun bearers alone.
US’s policy towards Ethiopia is never to protect the interest of Ethiopia but the United States’. Dr. Yonas often raises thought-provoking issues to make us see beyond the obvious.

When was the last time you bought a beer in a Kenyan bar or restaurant at 60 bob? This is the current price in Moyale of a bottle of St George Beer, the most popular and oldest beer in Ethiopia. What is considered high taxation in Kenya is said to fuel illicit trade at the Kenyan-Ethiopian border town of Moyale, which lies about 777km from Nairobi. Existing porous borders, most within less than 5km of the OSBP, are the preferred routes for moving goods, as high taxation continues to fuel illict trade.

A trip from Nairobi to the border in Moyale was a two-day affair, with a night spent in Marsabit. Based on my experience, I would describe Moyale as a friendly and affordable town. We start our official day with a courtesy call at the Moyale police station, where we are welcomed by the Officer Commanding Station, Ali Noor Abdi. Security is tight, with the Kenyan border well manned by the regular police and a special Border Patrol Unit. A number of banks have established themselves in the town, giving the much-needed financial support to traders and the community.
