March 26, 2020

In early March 2020, the Ethiopian government announced the appointment of new ambassadors without disclosing the lists of countries to which they are assigned.

Seemingly, the “appointment” came in the wake of a modest shake-up in Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s cabinet. Among the noticeable ones were Berhanu Tsegaye, who was serving as Attorney general, and Gina Bacha, who was serving as president of Commercial Bank of Ethiopia since July 2018. Hirut Zemene, state minister in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was also included in the lists of “appointment.”

Today, the ministry has announced the countries to which the new ambassadors are going. The update from the department is dated March 20, 2020, but was shared on March 26 instead.

The list is as follows :

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary

  1. H.E. Ambassador Berhanu Tsegaye, Amb. to Australia, Canberra

  1. They were sent to facilitate for the GuraGonadare PM Nobel prize gotten “million dollar” investments .


  2. Only two females among 15 appointments in the country where they are more than 50% of the population? No offense intended to the men but that ain’t right in my book. It should have been the reverse. Someone may try to tell me that men are the ones who are exposed to or experience to foreign diplomacy. What? What? That means men are born with it? Stop making a fool of yourself! Those men were not born with it but acquired the skills on the job. It takes us men 5 minutes to grab the arithmetics of 2+2=4 but it takes our women less than 30 seconds to understand it. But in any case I wish the new appointees success in their new assignments. That gem of the colored needs skillful diplomatic to fight off the onslaught unleashed by el-Sisi. It is so obvious that Egypt is working 24/7 to isolate that innocent country diplomatically and be seen as a pariah then render all neighboring countries as neutral on-lookers for anything that is el-Sisi’s table of options. Then he will call for RTEM bigots already wreaking havoc in the old country. They are in every region. He will use them as guides and snitches. On the later one they may be in service to him already. These bigots have no values and they will kill even their mothers to get what they want and they have committed such horrible crime already. How so you may ask. Because many mothers have been savagely bludgeoned/hacked to death by mobs/vagabonds incited by such poisonous bigots. There is nothing that makes the life of one’s mother less worthy than the other. None!!! So el-Sisi knows these miscreants very well from the backs of his hand. Nuff said!!!!
