  1. Well done Gambella!!
    The humble government of Gambella is currently lifting the people of Gambella to greatness.
    Gambella is a place that is on a remarkable rise , the development that is taking place in Gambella within the last year or two is so huge it is nothing but a success poster region of the change era, that made Gambella a place of infinite possibilities , all thanks to the new reformed Gabella’s regional government policy that took its time to study the tax records of each farm investors that operated in Gambella in the last two decades, by studying both federal and regional tax records of each farm investor in the last two decades Gambella was able to shake off the monkey on Gambella’s back quickly and sprint the growth development transformation goal of the region .

    Now Gambella can be a good example for other regions to practice this major key responsibility , which is Public servants must perform reviewing federal and regional tax records of each investor that was awarded farm lands in the last two decades if they also choose to shake off the monkey on their back and create the much needed job opportunities , the responsibility of mobilizing the public to work is overlooked by many regions governments die to.thatnreason unfortunately many ethnic groups are resorting to creating their own statehood .
    Even Sidama Region should review the tax records of the farm investors before anything , I am sure it will be a shocking revelation an eye opener job creation task
    that will make identifying investors that actually intend to farm the lands they receive a reality, a very crucial job of the public servants but often remained not being done resulting in the socio , economic and political conflicts that lasted for 20+ years until the new change reform came a couple of years ago.

    The investment activity in Gambella is so impressive the locals are finally getting the chance to earn a living by working for the investors who actually farm the lands , unlike almost all of investors in the years just until a couple of years ago who fenced the lands and leave the lands not farmed year after year for decades stagnating Gambellas growth all that has changed now since giving lands that actually farm the lands is given the much needed consideration by Gambella region government public servants as it can be done allover Ethiopia abandoning the old ways of corruption land grab for fencing not for farming that was done until a couple of years ago. Looking back at the tax records of each farm investors that were awarded lands in Gambella was the first and most important job Gambella region performed that resulted in the success Gambella region is in now , learned from the farm investors tax records paid to the region and to the federal of the last three decades was the key since it was found out only a handful and of investors paid appropriate tax money while almost all the rest paid almost nothing year after year for three decades , now all that is changing since creating jobs for the young is given upmost attention in Gambella which cut down the youth unemployment rate by half each year for the last couple of years , even South Sudaneese refugees are getting job opportunities in Gambella since it is starting to show there are more job opportunities than workers in many areas of Gambella .
