What should leaders do for Ethio

Source: Ethiomedia.comMr. Elias Kifle, the editor of Ethiopian Review, has opened up a much needed discussion on the future of our country by asking Ethiopians to offer their top ten ideas for what they would first do if they were to become the prime minister of Ethiopia. I commend him for encouraging this important debate, one which could not take place in Ethiopia. Hopefully, it will result in a more structured and organized effort by those of us in the Diaspora that will positively impact what happens inside Ethiopia. But instead of addressing the question of what I would do as a prime minister, I will focus on what I would suggest potential political leaders should do now and at such a time of crisis should this government collapse quickly and unexpectedly.If we are not going to repeat the mistakes of the past, we must think about what we want for the future and how to actually accomplish that vision. This discussion cannot simply be about defeating a common enemy—Meles/TPLF—but about how to build an Ethiopia where “humanity comes before ethnicity,” or any other distinctions and where we seek a humane, just, fair and inclusive society for “no one will be free until all are free.”
