  1. Because Woyane sells Ethiopian women to become domestic servants(slaves) in the Arab world, the Ethiopian men are going out of their head due to loneliness.
    This guy Adeladilew Mekonen is the product of Woyane’s time misadminstration. The western media keeps Adeladilew Mekonen’s age a secret because the western media don’t want Woyane to get blamed for Adeladilew Mekonen’s actions , same as the western media keeps Woyane’s crimes Against Humanity a secret.

    • It is mazing you are defending his actions by blaming others.
      It has nothing to do with weyane or mengistu.
      He did what he did, and he should face the consequences.

  4. The ultimate sex offenders are ruling Ethiopia claiming 100% of Ethiopians voted for us. These Woyane-Offenders claim 100% of the people voted for us so we offend whoever we choose to offend in every sense of the word “offending “. Woyanes want students to wear almost nothing so the sexual immorality spread. Cultural outfit is a no no by Woyane to non-woyane students so the non-woyane people don’t embrace their culture. Woyane doesn’t want the non-woyane people stay clear from the sexual immorality.the woyane wants spreading of sexual immorality among throughout the Woyane time born generation that are not woyane. The voice of the non-woyane girls is nowhere to be listened under Woyane’s time. These girls cann’t vote .There is no freedom of expression. The vote of these girl’s parents doesn’t count. The woyanes instilled sexual immorality as soon as they got to power in 1991 to spread HIV so they make money out of foreign aid sent to prevent HIV. 10% upto 15% of the 100 milllion Ethiopians currently are orphan children mostly homeless, due to Woyane’s sexual immorality culture they encouraged to spread through the society since the early 1990’s . Look listen how little girls are treated in Ethiopia by Woyane by clicking the link below. All these trauma the generation is suffering by the offender’s association government called Woyane have a negative effect on the whole generation whether on the men or women that grew up during Woyane time..
