"Events were moving forward in such a favorable direction after 35 years of tragedy for Sudan. Protest organizers called for an internationally backed probe into the crackdown. But the ruling military council, which acknowledged that security forces committed violations, strongly rejected the idea. Nagy said the head of the military council, Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, "was adamant that there will be accountability" and that "we certainly hope that there will be such an investigation." But he warned of negative scenarios as both the military council and protest leaders "absolutely distrust each other."

June 15, 2019The World Bank Group today announces half a million dollars grant to the Government of Ethiopia for the implementation of Climate Action through Landscape Management (CALM) Program. The project is expected to benefit rural households living on degraded land and estimated to support around 5,000 kebeles of Ethiopia’s highlands, according to World Bank Country Director Carolyn Turk. CALM will also provide a mechanism to incentivize the roll-out of institutional reforms for participatory watershed management and land administration, it was learned. The program is a five-years budget support program with a result-based approach and envisioned to increase adoption of sustainable land management practices and expand access to secure land tenure in non-rangeland rural areas of the country. “The grant is very important to scale up the achievements done in prior programs, increase sustainable land management practices and expand access to secure land tenure and contribute to increase to productivity and resilience in the agriculture sector,” said Minister Ahmed.

By Kebour GhennaJune 14, 2019In our age there is no such thing as “keeping out of politics.” All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and schizophrenia. Our subject today is not how the future of democracy will play out… but how we get things done (or undone) in Ethiopia. We never expected all political parties to go silent on these issues, and yet politics demands basic plots… ones the masses can follow. By the way, in Singapore (I hear many good things about it these days) the state owns a huge amount of the means of production. ___Editor’s note : This article was first shared on the personal Facebook page of Kebour GhennaAmong many articles by same Author :Where are we heading?

The showdown took place Tuesday after the aircraft, which was carrying only a pilot and first officer, departed from Spain’s Málaga–Costa del Sol Airport and approached German airspace. "Just before entering German airspace both the German and French authorities sent a notice that prohibited repositioning flights of the Boeing 737 Max in their airspace," Norwegian Air said in a statement. They added that those details were passed on to Norwegian Air. However, there’s the rub, because, according to the Norwegian Air spokesperson, the airline was never handed that bit of necessary information. That crash came just five months after the October 2018 crash of a Lion Air 737 Max 8, which killed all 189 people onboard.

Scotland see glass half full as search for first World Cup points goes onRENNES: Scotland coach Shelley Kerr remained upbeat despite seeing the women's World Cup debutants slump to their second defeat in as many outings at the tournament as they lost 2-1 to Japan on Friday. "I thought for most of the second half we were terrific and finished really strongly," said Kerr, who saw Lana Clelland come off the bench to get Scotland's goal. I have watched it back three times and it is a penalty," insisted Kerr. It was a view shared by Chelsea forward Erin Cuthbert as Scotland prepare to face Argentina in Paris next Wednesday seeking their first points. "Our objective before the tournament was always to win a game and give us a chance to get out of the group," she said.
