METEC to Have Reorganization, New NameOctober 15, 2018 - The military controlled industrial enterprise named Metals and Engineering Corporation (METEC) is going to be reorganized, according to FBC report. METEC came under hot water recently for the delay it caused to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) project. METEC came into intense scrutiny soon after the late project manager of GERD, Simegnew Bekele, committed suicide. In addition to the pending reorganization, METEC will also change its name to National Metal Engineering Corporation, according to the report. METEC will only manufacture civil and commercial products with a new name, the National Metal Engineering Corporation (NMEC), subject to approval by the Council of Ministers, he said.

With scores of roasters huddling together to taste hundreds of coffees brewed various ways, DCN seized the golden opportunity to ask a few questions — pulling the trier, as it were, from a drum full of thoughts and perspectives from professional coffee roasters. We asked the same five questions of six different roasters representing four different corners of the USA and one from Australia, of experience levels from relatively new to seasoned, award-winning industry veterans. You know, all those questions roasters ask themselves and keeps you awake at night and drives you crazy. Brandon Bir: Right now we have a Colombian Moka variety and it’s such a small bean and has such a high water activity. I think it turned out really, really well.

The Harambee Stars game and victory against their Ethiopia counterparts was one of those moments that Kenyans embraced nationalism and we should keep that spirit for a prosperous Kenya. It all started with a passionate rallying call for Kenyans to turn up in large numbers and support the national soccer team, Harambee Stars. They came out in unprecedented style and - on what would ordinarily have passed as just another day – effortlessly redefined 'Kumira Kumira' and 'Thuraku Movement'. Harambee Stars’ players had no option but to reciprocate the overwhelming support, and this they did in style as they whipped Ethiopia 3-0.

However, it is unclear as to how many military officers are arrested and what exactly was the level of involvement in terms of inciting army officers for protest. And there seem to be more officers to be arrested. He even hailed those members of special forces who marched to the prime minister’s office last Wednesday in terms of their competence. “They have been diligently accomplishing mission that they were given,” said General Seare Mekonen.

For two decades, little besides soldiers, refugees and rebels moved across Ethiopia and Eritrea's closed border, but today it teems with activity. Back in businessOnce a province of Ethiopia, Eritrea voted for independence in 1993 after a decadeslong struggle. A dispute over the border plunged the neighbors into war in 1998, leaving tens of thousands dead in two years of fighting. The conflict continued as a cold war after Ethiopia refused to honor a U.N.-backed commission verdict demarcating the border, a policy Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed reversed in June. Eritrea's economy has underperformed since the war, while Ethiopia has grown at some of Africa's fastest rates, which hasn't escaped the notice of the visitors to the country.

Ministry of Peace to be formed as Ethiopia is cutting down number of government ministries from 28 to 20.borkenaOctober 14,2018Ethiopia will have a new ministry – “Ministry of peace” – very soon. Internal peace has become a paramount challenge to prime minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration as ethnic-based violence is flaring up in different parts of the country. In a related development, Ethiopia is cutting down the number of government ministries. What that means is that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government will soon have a cabinet reshuffle. Unconfirmed social media reports say the current minister for the Ministry of Industry, Ato Ambachew Mekonnen (PhD), will be appointed as minister for Foreign Affairs Ministry replacing Dr. Workeneh Gebyehu.

Source: Xinhua| 2018-10-15 00:46:24|Editor: Mu XuequanVideo Player CloseADDIS ABABA, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- The Ethiopian government on Sunday urged higher education students across the country to refrain from any form of destructive agendas and envisage rational judgments amid the starting of the new academic year. Ahmed and Mekonnen, as part of their messages to higher education students, urged the need to engage in constructive agendas as millions of Ethiopian youth embark on the new Ethiopian academic year. Improving the culture of peaceful resolution of differences and misunderstandings through discussions was also another focus in Ahmed's message to Ethiopian students. Ethiopia's higher education institutions have been hotbeds of dissent since the 1960s, eventually helping overthrow the last Ethiopian emperor, Haile Selassie I, in September 1974. In recent years, higher educational institutions have also become scenes of violence among students over political, ethnic and religious differences.

However, their skepticism was understandable when viewed against the fact that the last time Harambee Stars played in AFCON was in 2004. Had this come earlier, Harambee Stars would, no doubt, be a formidable team as was the case in the 1980s. Yet another problem for the national team has been the conduct of clubs which withdraw their players from the national team for club assignments when their services are greatly needed. Qualification for AFCON is just a first step; Harambee Stars under Coach Sebastian Migne should be facilitated to acquit itself in Cameroon next year. Well done Harambee Stars, you made us proud.

Migne's men will have sealed a place in next year's finals in Cameroon if Sierra Leone's suspension from the qualification process is not lifted. Harambee stars celebrate during Africa Cup Of Nations Group F return leg at Kasarani Stadium on Sunday, Oct 14, 2018. Though Ethiopia coach Abraham Mebratu conceded the defeat, he is still hopeful of progressing to Afcon finals. The game started with Harambee Stars looking the better of the two sides, but they failed to trouble Ethiopia goalkeeper in the opening quarter. It was until the 23rd minute that Johanna combined well with Olunga on the left flank to put the stadium into frenzy.
