  1. I congratulate aite Bereket and his family. His imprisonment was based on also grounds and Amhara culture of vengeance. Though born and grew up in the Amhara area of Gondar, he hates and opposes corruption which is typical of the Amhara culture and focused on fighting it. He and the late Meles Zenawi prioritized to tansform this backward region.
    He served the Amharas, planned and led almost all of the development programs of the EPRDF in the region. He is one of the creative and democratic leaders of the EPRDF who put Ethiopia on a development trajectory.

    Humble Commentary
    To be honest, we all get our “shares” in Life — in one way or the other. Petty or mini.
    But NATURE has its own judgment that never fades away.
    ” embezzlement of over 2 billion birr” is not baby’s game.
    Indeed, we get our share of punishment in Life, one way or the other.
    It is our individual choice.

    Mr. Bereket received his share >>>Frankly, he is lucky to be released so easily
    By the way, it is not a secrete that there are still individuals who indulge in the same category – one way or the other.
    May Ethiopia survive from similar “corruption”. THE END
