Egypt and Ethiopia have once again locked horns in a fresh row over the latter's massive dam project, the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) on the Blue Nile. They insist that Ethiopia should halt filling the dam until the parties reach a legally binding agreement with Addis Ababa on the overall operation of the dam. Last week, the Ethiopian government accused the Arab League states of“politicising” the Nile dam issue. The Arab League on Thursday last week passed a resolution supporting Egypt's historic water rights from the River Nile. “We should not have to remind the League that the Nile River and all the riparian countries are found in Africa,” the Ethiopian statement added.

Th Ethiopian leadership has proven its commitment to democracy and human rights under the most challenging conditions. Human Rights Watch rang the bell for a 5-alarm fire following the 100 percent parliamentary victory of the TPLF in 2015. Ethiopian sovereignty to investigate and prosecute human rights violators should be equally respected. It is not possible to demand respect for the human rights of a people while disrespecting the sovereign rights of their nations. Anyway, I never set out to change Ethiopia.

Roma Lama, 52, usually cooks alone, but she definitely isn’t cooking for one. She often gets homesick, she said, but cooking and eating Ethiopian food helps her feel connected. On a Saturday in November, Lama was buzzing around her kitchen, cooking and putting the various dishes into serving bowls. They sat in the living room and talked with Lama and her 15-year-old daughter, Arsema. An hour or so later, a few more of her friends, from Ethiopia, dropped by with their children.

The East African Rift formed in the southern end of the Great Rift Valley, which stretches from Lebanon in the north to Mozambique in the south, on the boundary of three tectonic plates: the African Nubian, African Somali, and Arabian. The three plates are separating at varying rates: the Nubian African Plate, the Somalian African Plate, and the Arabian Plate. This creates a rift valley, which is a lowland area formed when Earth’s tectonic plates separate, or rift. Rift valleys are distinct from river valleys and glacial valleys in that they are formed by tectonic action rather than erosion, reports National Geographic. Yet, in eastern Africa, the Somali plate is also separating from the Nubian plate, tearing apart along the East African Rift Valley, which runs through Ethiopia and Kenya.
