By Tibebe Samuel FerenjiJune 5, 2020Often, we have the intention to believe that human rights abuse is unique in countries where tyranny has reigned. What we are currently witnessing unfold in the world stage is the result of decades of human rights abuse, racism, and human rights violations perpetrated against African Americans in the US. Until the problem reaches its epic moment and their major cities streets are filled by the abused and victims of human rights violations. However, we don’t need to wait until the necessary infrastructure is put in place to combat human rights violations. Henceforth, investigate all human rights reports and allegations of human rights abuse that are not in the reports and make those who violate human rights accountable no matter who they are.

In connection to this, I argue, thymotic passions of citizens offer an explanation to the endless contradictions of black and white citizens in American politics. Later on, in the 1960’s, another black American movement led by Martin Luther King with a motto “I have a dream” shook the foundation of American politics. As a result, a large number of black citizens questioned the legitimacy of American liberal democracy and got out to the streets for protest several times. It is the white man who arbitrarily shoot and puts the black to death, not the structure. It is a white man named Darek Chavin that put Floyd to death, not the system of economic inequality.

Lebanon is providing temporary shelter for a group of Ethiopian domestic workers abandoned by their employers. The Lebanese labor ministry said on Thursday that a group of Ethiopian domestic workers had been taken by bus to a hotel in Beirut "to get them off the street." The government was in contact with international agencies and the Ethiopian consulate to find a long-term solution, Hussein Zalghout, a ministry spokesperson, told the news agency AFP. Some of those camped outside the Ethiopian consulate had been abandoned by their employers, who had stopped paying them and thrown them onto the street. The majority of the 250,000 migrants employed as domestic servants in Lebanon are Ethiopian women.

PARIS: Bahrain’s Salwa Eid Naser, who ran the third fastest time ever when she won world 400m gold last year, has been provisionally banned after failing to meet ‘whereabouts’ criteria, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) announced Friday. The Nigerian-born 22-year-old clocked 48.14 seconds to win the one-lap race at the Doha worlds, placing her third in the all-time list behind Marita Koch (47.60 in 1985) and Jarmila Kratochvilova (47.99 in 1983). Naser’s gold medal-winning performance in Doha made her just the second woman to win a global-level title for Bahrain, following in the footsteps of Ethiopian-born Maryam Yusuf Jamal, who won two world 1,500m titles (2007, 2009) and was upgraded to Olympic gold in the 2012 London Games after the initial winner and runner-up were both banned for biological passport irregularities. Under World Athletics’ rules, any combination of three whereabouts failures (filing failure and/or missed test) within a period of 12 months constitutes an anti-doping rule violation, for which the sanction is two years’ ineligibility subject to a reduction to a minimum of one year depending on the athlete’s degree of fault.

Ethiopia closed its schools in mid-March and sent more than 26 million children home, where experts say they are at greater risk for forced labor and child marriage. Save the Children launched the mobile camel libraries a decade ago and has helped more than 22,000 children in 33 villages to get access to education during the pandemic. Last month, it surveyed 30 Ethiopian children about their concerns over the coronavirus, finding they were worried about the economic pressure on their families and about rises in early marriage and child labor. Almost 16 million children aged between 5 and 17 are engaged in child labor in Ethiopia, according to a national survey published in 2018. Ogutogullari said the charity was trying to find creative ways to help children continue learning.

To the surprise of many, African governments have responded swiftly and boldly to the COVID-19 crisis. Ethiopia’s unconventional approach, for example, reflects the country’s limited financial and human resources, as well as the low level of available international support. The government’s COVID-19 economic-support package is based on the principle of shared costs and sacrifices. Image: Ethiopian Health Sector Transformation Plan, 2015Third, the government ensured a coherent response by maximizing coordination among public agencies at different levels. Learning what works and what does not in that regard has been a vital catalyst in Ethiopia’s response.

Built in the 7th century, the mosque was named after a Christian king of Aksum named Al-Nejashi. This was so because he gave shelter to Muslim refugees which included relatives of Prophets Muhammed (SAW) at the time they really needed help. He said that the messages he received from his brothers and sisters in Islam made his day glorious and the conversion more beautiful. Nooran said she is very proud of herself in how she completed the task within that short period. In response to how she went about the task, the woman sad that she sometimes read a translation when things were unclear to her.

A government official in the Ethiopian Oromia region accused Egypt of attempting to mobilise oppositionists to create chaos, in light of the Renaissance Dam crisis, stressing that they have evidence proving Cairo’s involvement in igniting the recent demonstrations in the region. Secretary-General of the Oromo Democratic Party Addisu Arega Kitessa, who is close to the regional government, considers that Egypt is trying to usurp Ethiopia’s right to use its natural resources, by making suspicious moves, including mobilising and recruiting oppositionists in the region, in order to stir confrontation with the government. Al Jazeera quoted Kitessa as stating: “We have evidence proving Cairo’s involvement in backing the demonstrations that took place in the region recently, despite the imposition of preventive measures to combat the coronavirus pandemic, which led to the outbreak of riots and a wave of theft and vandalism aimed at destabilising the region and frustrate the reforms undertaken by the government.”The Ethiopian regional official called on citizens to be careful not to be manipulated by some parties to serve foreign agendas, as he put it. He added: “Anyone who has claims must submit them following legal means.”READ: Row between Sudan, Ethiopia erupts over border clashes

WASHINGTON - Mammoth rescue packages for some airlines are proving to be not enough. American and United Airlines plan to cut 30 percent of their management and support staff. “Let’s bear in mind that the job of the airlines is to make efficient use of their resources. There’s really no point if they are not flying the routes they once flew, they’ve obviously cut back their coverage. “Over the last five years, actually, the U.S. airline industry added about 25 percent of their workforce.

South Sudan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation issued a statement resolving the controversy over its approval of Cairo’s request to establish a military base near the Ethiopian border. The ministry announced in a statement on Wednesday that the information circulated on social media about this agreement is unfounded. “The government of the Republic of South Sudan and the South Sudan Defence Forces agreed to allocate a land lot to our Egyptian brothers, who asked for a plot of land in eastern [South Sudan] to deploy their forces,” Juba TV revealed. This came in line with the statement of the military official who indicated, on condition of anonymity, that this step will boost development in the country. However, last Thursday Seleshi Bekele, Ethiopian minister of water, irrigation and energy, asserted that his country would not recognise Egypt’s historical rights to the Nile’s water.
