  1. This is a poorly written crap and it is shameful that Zehabesha’s editorial board did not bother to edit it and make it nesworthy. For crying out loud please post material that is well written. It is an insult to post such crappy material to worthy contrbutors and to the journalists who attended the conference.

  2. I don’t care who wrote this article, it’s a poorly written and poorly organized article. It’s English is less than standard and it shouldn’t be published here at Habesha site. If this is how the Ethiopian journalists of the free press write English, then I am happy that they were not invited to the Annual Free Press day. Even an elementary student writes a much better article than this

  3. Thank You So Much … but your Comment is Like Boy …I am not TPLF( EPRDF) …not Doctor Abiy Ahmed Prime Minister of Ethiopia supporter ….. i am not gay …. i am not EPRDF Student ….Just i am writing because that is press freedom ! any way So happy to finally let you all know! Thank you ??????

  4. Please, please ……… everyone whether institution or persons, please, please do it your job morally. As we quote,By this things Reporters without Borders in their World Press Freedom Index 2019 Say Ethiopia ranked 110 out of 180 countries Surveyed in 2018 , has Climbed 40 Places .

    “World Press freedom day was Proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 1993 ,following the recommendation of UNESCO’s General Conference Since then every May 3 has been dedicated globally as the World Press freedom day .

    Though Prime minister Abyi did tremendous effort to back Ethiopia to Renaissance, we do have many challenges to face on back of present regime who hinder structural change.

    So let’s be alert.

    Long live to Ethiopia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
