As you can see the minority junta is sleepless from the information assault it is receiving from the diaspora Ethiopians. If any of its cadre are trying to downplay the diaspora contribution to inform the people, woyane knows the impact for sure. Apparently, they have launched a new amateur website as official website for the ruling party (read woyane) to a counter the impact inflicted by Diaspora. They are even proud of their website that they brought it as big news on the TV (check below) The target is obviously the diaspora. But that is not my issue here, but rather the fact that the website costed over 1,000,000 Birr shows either the incompetence of the junta or the weakness of purchasing power of the Birr. Well then you might argue that we all know the junta already possesses those traits. Then a third trait come to the equation, looting. So more than a million birr for a slow amateurish website is insane to say the least. See the news below and check the website to judge it yourself. My verdict is 'FAIL'.
Meanwhile, it is interesting to see the head of Ethiopia Network Security Agency, what ever that means, is a brigadier general from Dedebit. He even handed prize and gift for designers of the amateurish website in recognition of their outstanding design. So all in all it is total profit for the designers of the Ethiopian Network Agency under the brigadier general and as usual it is always a lose lose situation for the peoples of Ethiopia.
