    1. I am a young 27 years old Ethiopian boy. I live in the Netherlands for the last 3 years studying for my MSc in water engineering. Today I was watching the debate on your news network. The historian man thought wasn’t expected from the man who is a specialist in African history. a historian must stand what the truth is, not with layers because of being paid. literary he said Ethiopians is not developed, and they can’t understand what his election means. which is very stupid for him. what is developed people mean? Is development mean that making divisions between humankind and make himself superior because of his skin colour? My and my generations will never allow you to destroy our country again. you can talk 24 hours that is your right and what you are capable of. My generations and my fathers and mothers do know what is your aim is. We will never ever allow you to intervene and make Ethiopia like Libia, Yemen, Iraqi …

      We know you were a friend of Melse and slotted Ethiopia together with him.
