  1. This is the work of nobody else except those Ethiopians by the name Engineer Seleshi and Obbo Gedu. You know how I figured it out? Because they proceeded in filling the dam without signing an agreement. That was how I did it. They started filling the dam and that made a pipeline more than a thousand miles just blow up!!! I can’t make you understand it because it is way too complicated for you!!!
