  1. H.E. Madame President Sahle-Work bint Zewde has brought even more grace to the office of the presidency. She is a powerhouse and over qualified just like all our women. I hope some time sooner if not later our women will wrestle away the mantle of ruling that pride of the colored away from men peacefully and tell us to go way back in line for the next 100 years. We men have gone irredeemably arrogant from the monopoly of ruling the country we enjoyed since the antiquities. We start destructive wars for stupid reasons resulting in deaths of millions of children of our women. We jail, torture and make disappear those we don’t like whenever we feel like it. Whenever we kill it is always the victim’s fault. When we jail and torture it is always the victim who did it. I don’t know who would excel us men in ‘I didn’t do it’ pissing contest. Telling lies is our working/communication protocol as rulers. Didn’t Mengistu tell us how he shortened the list of those to be savagely massacred from 250 to 60 of former officials of the late emperor’s government? He told us how it was not his wish to shoot those officials. He is not alone. Some of those members of his entourage who later chicken scratched books were all telling us ‘I did not do it. I ain’t got nothing to do with it. It was all Mengistu and showing off fake remorse that they should have stopped it. That is nothing less than assaulting the victims again and again. Liars, liars, liars, your pants on fire!!
