Ethiopia is a land of plenty with a long and noble history giving rise to ethnic, linguistic and cultural diversity. It is the only African country never to have been colonised. It has more than 80 unique rich ethnic, cultural and linguistic groups.

Ethiopia is renowned for its distinctive Christian tradition and association with the Ark of the Covenant. It offers the most dramatic scenery of unsurpassed grandeur (i.e. Simien Mountains National Park), unique rock-hewn churches, the spectacular Blue Nile Falls, the Great Rift Valley, the Danakil Depression, imperial castles, monuments of an ancient civilisation linked with the legend of the Queen of Sheba.

Ethiopian Treasures' overall aim is to provide readers the many varied aspects of Ethiopia. It will, I hope, be a great help to school/college students and travellers, and by using this site readers can either begin to learn and discover Ethiopia, or enhance their knowledge of it.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is not only has failed to live up to his early promises and Medemer philosophy, he has unleashed a wave of repression, margination of ethnic groups by locking up his political opponents and those he once freed.

His lies, deceptions, betrayal and antagonistic political order are hurting people’s livelihoods and costing many lives throughout his premiership. Read more ...

Injudicious Politics, Ethnic conflicts and the Breakdown of Law and Order in Ethiopia

Since Abiy Ahmed took the premiership in 2018, he is persistently preaching populist, antagonistic and injudicious politics against ethnic groups who advocate for self-determination and federal system. Prime Minister Abiy has rejected self-rule and federalism and he has been pressing ahead with his Medemer policy against the wishes of many ethnic groups. The Medemer policy is not designed to unite ethnic groups equally but to revive unitary and dictatorial government of repression and racial segregation. Abiy Ahmed and Amhara elites have ulterior political and personal motives to undermine and deny ethnic groups’ self-determination which is guaranteed by the Ethiopia constitution. Their hostility stance to self-determination and federal system has animated Oromo nationalism and Amhara extremism against non-Oromo and non-Amhara ethnic groups. Read more ...
