Experience Africa by Atta will debut over three days from Monday 25th June to Wednesday 27th June 2018. The invitation only event at London’s Canary Wharf CCT Venues Plus, aims to provide a lucrative platform for uniting a wider range of key suppliers from Africa with the most relevant, active buyers from the UK and across Europe. An Africa travel trade show of this blueprint has never taken place before in the UK and looks set to attract record attendance. Exhibitors appearing for the show’s debut year include Cheli & Peacock Safaris, Volcanoes Safaris, Anabezi & Amanzi Camp and Legacy Hotels & Resorts. The eager response so far is testament that a ‘reimagined’ trade show for Africa was something people were waiting for.”Share this: TweetPrintWhatsAppEmail

ADDIS ABABA, March 19 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopia's ruling party Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) will kick off its meeting on Tuesday to elect new party chair. Desalegn, former chairman of the Southern Ethiopian People's Democratic Movement (SEPDM), took over premiership after the death of Meles Zenawi in August 2012. Ethiopia's ruling party is a coalition of four parties that are Oromo People's Democratic Organization (OPDO), the Amhara National Democratic Movement (ANDM), Tigrayan People's Liberation Front (TPLF) and SEPDM. In addition to endorsing its new chairperson, Ethiopia's ruling party is also expected to elect members for vacant positions following the conclusion of the party's executive committee's meeting, according to Shigute. Shigute, however, downplayed the rumor, insisting that "no individual or party member had opposed the importance of the state of emergency."

Desalegn said that he had made the decision to facilitate efforts towards political reforms which started with the release of political prisoners. But rather than pursue a reform agenda, the Ethiopian government followed his announcement by declaring a state of emergency. It could also affect regional peace efforts because instability in one corner of the Horn of Africa could spread and destabilise the entire region. An unstable Ethiopia could also affect peace efforts in neighbouring countries. After the Ethiopia-Eritrea war which ended in 2000, the two countries have remained engaged in a proxy war by supporting each others’ political opposition groups.

Eritrea says Ethiopia must move to deal with its chronic internal security crisis instead of finding scapegoats from outside. This is the position of Information Minister Yemane Gebremeskel in a response to an email query by the Bloomberg magazine. Ethiopian authorities were reported over the weekend to have said neighbouring Eritrea was partly to blame for its internal security headache. The state-owned Ethiopia Broadcasting Corporation late last week quoted the federal police chief as saying Eritrea was trying to destabilize the country by sponsoring anti-peace forces. It is not the first time that Ethiopia has accused Eritrea of such acts, neither is it the first time Eritrea is rejecting such claims.

By framing itself as the indispensable engine of economic development, the EPRDF has been hobbled by an inability to translate double-digit national economic growth rates into higher living standards. For all its hailed dividends, the top-down disposition of Ethiopia’s development with its long horizon-rent centralisation, often at the expense of civil liberties, has been divisive. The resulting anger has expressed itself in increasingly ethno-centric terms since 2015, with local rallies against the physical urban expansion of Addis Ababa morphing into nation-wide anti-government demonstrations. Negotiations stalled last November after Ethiopia refused to recognise Egypt’s right self-declared right to 55.5 billion metres3 of Nile water annually.

So everyone gets to be identified by the company although the privacy of individuals making the transactions is maintained. The latter is possible because the DasCoin blockchain is made such that it obfuscates the identity of participants as transactions are recorded on it. This also means the central entity can change rules to solve emerging issues, unlike Bitcoin where a blunder is left unresolved. DasCoin’s Referral ProgramThe DasCoin affiliate program is heavily reliant on identifying who has referred which new community member to the DasCoin ecosystem. These are the major reasons and benefits DasCoin fronts for making their private network permitted.

Eritrea’s government rejected allegations by neighboring Ethiopia that it’s trying to destabilize the country after Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn resigned last month. Ethiopia has been struggling to quell sporadic anti-government protests over the past two years that have left hundreds of people dead. The government has regularly accused its eastern neighbor of interference in its affairs since the two nations separated in 1993 after decades of armed conflict. “This false allegation doesn’t merit serious response,” Information Minister Yemane Gebremeskel said Monday in an emailed response to questions. Ethiopian Information Minister Negeri Lencho and foreign ministry spokesperson Meles Alem didn’t immediately respond to two text messages and two calls seeking comment.

Ethiopians who fled the town of Moyale in the wake of a botched military operation that killed nine citizens will be repatriated soon, the country’s police chief confirmed last Friday. At the time of Assefa Abyou’s press conference, over 9,600 asylum seekers had fled the border town of Moyale into Kenya according to Kenyan media reports. A military team ostensibly dispatched to intercept a banned armed group – the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) members ended up acting on wrong intelligence leading to the incident. The Command Post administering the February 16 State of Emergency (SOE) early last week dispatched a team to Moyale to ascertain the facts on the ground, that team has yet to give updates on its task. Without giving figures, he also said more than half of persons detained by the Command Post had so far been released.

Lethal crackdown sparks Ethiopians exodus to KenyaFrom MARIA MACHARIA in Nairobi, KenyaNAIROBI, (CAJ News) – MORE than 8 000 Ethiopians have fled to Kenya in the wake of an erroneous, deadly crackdown by the military against civilians. Last week, the Ethiopian security forces opened fire on the civilian population in the Oromia region neighbouring Kenya, killing at least 13 people, injuring 20 while 16 are reported missing. The European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO), said the conditions were dire for the 8 200 Ethiopians that have fled to Kenya. “Their needs are significant, including medical treatment, food, water, sanitation facilities and shelter,” said an ECPHAO humanitarian spokesperson. The lack of water and the overall poor sanitation situation is a reason for great concern regarding a possible outbreak of cholera.
