Ethiopia on Tuesday inaugurated the Science and Art Museum in the heart of the capital Addis Ababa.  

It is Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed who cut the ribbon to inaugurate the new dome-shaped facility which he sees as a significant step in the direction of building a digital economy. 

“It lays a foundation for children for a better Ethiopia,” PM Abiy Ahmed said.  He added that the Science Museum will have a greater role to enable children and youth to practice creative thinking and creative development. 

It is said that the dome-shape architecture signifies “continuous growth and man kind’s creativity,” according to the Ethiopian News Agency Report.  

It is also portrayed as an expression of Ethiopia’s determination to adapt to ever growing technological development. 

After the inauguration, PM Abiy wrote on his social media page “As we inaugurate Ethiopia’s Science Museum, launch a technology exhibition and open the first PanAfrican Artificial Intelligence conference today, all are essential for networking, learning and co-creating across the continent, as we all strive to empower Africa through digital transformation…”

On the same day, the facility hosted a technology startup and public/private institution exhibition which will be open for viewing for several weeks to come. 

It also hosted what is said to be “the first and annual PanAfricon Artificial Intelligence conference.”

The premise of the facility has a total of seven hectares of land. There are two huge building structures but much of the space is devoted to green areas.

The bigger structure is built on 15,000 Square meters of land and has 132 meters in width.  

Over 4,000 indigenous trees are covering the green space – in addition to flowers – according to the ENA report. 

In January 2022, Ethiopia inaugurated the largest library in the country, also built in Addis Ababa, which is named as Abrhot – an Amharic word for “Enlightenment.”

  1. When it comes to technology it can be said Africa seems to have finally got its mojo. We all remember where those technologically and economically advanced nations like South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan started. They started out making technologically low level nifty toys and sundries. They absorbed the latest education in technology from the West like a sponge. During the Vietnam War Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea used to be the favorite destinations for the American GI’s during their R&R breaks. Look at them now. I take this news as something that makes my day. Kudos!!!

  2. What does the gang of Orommuma Tribal regime knows anything about Technology and civilization? The same old EPRDF Now the Orommuma Prosperity Party aka Plunderer and Murderer, the habitual lair Abiy and the Orommuma cruel ignorant mafia propaganda.

    Abiy Ahmed and the Orommuma criminals whose little brain are frozen in the mediaeval age should have been created and died thousands years ago. They are not the people of this era.

    The lowest point in history for Ethiopia that was once the pride of Black people!! It is sickening and painful to believe there are such people living in Ethiopia at this day and age!!

    Civilized people who have real education and merit for the position they hold do not lie, and focus on a particular group (in Abiys’ the “Sew Belaw” case the people of Amhara ethnicity) to mass murder, bring misery and arrest , intimidate, use force to silence Journalist, human right defenders and innocent people.
    Abiy the Oromuma Sew Belaw gang of criminals have broken the record of going back into Stone age tribal and Genocidal bloody system.

    The Oromuma has descended Ethiopia into darkness and backward system. When colonized African counties have dropped tribalism and killing each other and celebrate civilization, the Oromuma Abiy Ahmed on the other hand has dug down deep into tribalism, backward system and Genocide that our well ahead of their time, civilized, God fearing forefathers never allowed to happen.

  3. What is next with the Dark age Barbarian, Abiy Ahmed and the Orommuma Genociders ?
    Education, civilization and peace are never friends of the Medieval Dead Man Walking, the Orommuma Abiy Ahmed.

    They live and strive in creating false, dark, narratives and undocumented fake stories while they never been to schools yet have unheard of Degrees in Doctorates gained after they hold the power seats.

    Those who claimed to have Doctorate Degrees in Conflict Resolution , Abiy Ahmed and Debretsion are the main problem of peace and quite. The actual education and Doctorate Degree they claimed to have without going to school must be how to Create Conflicts and War.

    What Abiy and the Orommuma can never be able to change the fact and never create the usual false narrative to blame Amharas for not having Oromo alphabet is when the Oromia started to import and adapt Latin alphabets.

    While the Orommuma Abiy was the servant of TPLF he crafted false narratives and many despicable false undocumented stories about Amharas. Claiming land to steal by changing the name of the place to Oromo language, and even forcefully using the Amharic words as Oromo words when Oromos never had any recording of writings, reading, teachings and documenting history because Oromo never had any alphabets and never promote education as important.

    Among the other gallant former Emperors, Emperor Haile Selassie is known to encourage and fight for education for his people as a whole because the powerful Europeans claim and need to colonize Ethiopia was to take Ethiopians out of the darkness of illiteracy and luck of education in exchange for dominance, free labor, slavery, resources, free service and wealth.

    So how were all those false nonexistent narratives of the Orommuma are going to challenged, supported and compared with centuries old Amharic and Geez written documents scattered among different individuals, different Museums and Libraries around the world while the Orommumas never knew how to write and read?

    The Oromia just started learning how to read and write by importing Latin alphabet while TPLF was in power only 30 years ago? So Abiy going to blame the Amharas again this?
