Ethiopia is living with a critical political situation the outcome of which is hard to predict. Destiny Ethiopia, an entity described as a local non-government organization founded by nine Ethiopians, initiated a discussion forum under the topic “Where would Ethiopia be in 20 years.”

It was organized this week at the Skylight Hotel in Addis Ababa. It attracted key political figures, artists and business people, among others.

As the details emerge now, Destiny Ethiopia was working on the event discreetly for more than six months. Nigussu Akililu, one of the founders of Destiny Ethiopia and coordinator of the event, says they first approached key actors who took part in the event and had a closed meeting with them.  

Ethiopia’s Ministry of Peace was also present in the event.

    People get confused with your four scenarios in current state of Ethiopia, Ethiopia cannot afford to entertain many complicated visions Philosophies with the current poverty . To solve the country’s poverty the only one option is to continue the poverty elimination war Ethiopians started in May of 1991, twenty eight years ago.
    For twenty eight victorious years we fought poverty, now we have no other choice but to continue fighting poverty as Meles Zenawi would have wanted us to fight poverty.
    So the possible two scenarios left now are not complicated ,
    1. To follow the Zenawism vision.
    2. Not to follow the Zenawism vision.
