Police arrest a local businessman

Alemayehu Fantu, owner of the famous Fantu supermarket chains in Addis Ababa and a rising young businessman, was arrested by the Federal Police on Thursday. Police took the action after Mimi Sibhatu's Eftin reported that he was involved in distributing calendars. The former VOA journalist, Mimi, is personally witch- hunting people who she thinks have connections with the opposition.
Alemayehu was taken to a notorious torture chamber near the place called "Enkulal Fabrika". He appeared in court on Friday. The court remanded Alemayehu in custody.

It is very sad. They know that Alemayehu is not involved with any thing. But they don't want to see around a free thinker or an individual who work very hard for the betterment of the society and his family with out being involved with me. The situation in Ethiopia became that you are either with us or not.

Yichi nat democracy in Ethiopia !!

genenew Assefa, solomon asemelash, mimi sebhatu, amare aregawi and zerihune teshome.

How the hell are you doing guys ??

Do you think we are going to forget about you ??

Specially Solomon Asemelash heeeeeeeee we still remember your "Yewetatoche" and "Hezebawi Mederek" programe during Mengistu time. We still remember how you serve as a double aged spy - as a top notch Derge Caderae, we know what your role was even before the key/nech shibire saga cooled down. Now, "bezemene geremebyt mai ne'akebe", you are another top notche cadre and businessman. I swear to you by your very derive that serve you that you would be dealt with !!!
This is for those who lived and still living in Ethiopia as a good Ethiopian but who were threated in inhumane way by "Tekeyayari Negusoche" and their dogs.
This is for those who perished in Ethiopia knowing and trying to do good for their people, but the likes of you brought them to their ends.

Mr.double/triple agent wannabe, I know mostly Ethiopian people are forgetfull and forgiving and might not even remember what you were or who you are. But by God it will be the quest of one man mission to get you. Pleas add "thousands" one man quests, while you at it.

your secret admirer.......

nowhere to run piggy...... the more crime you commit, the easier for the formula to get you.

Well, Alex is a best friend of Dr. Berahanu and a good contributor to kinijit. I remember he used to barbecue and invite all this politicians to his house. Politics and Electric should be avoided by anyone. Sad to here this about Alex, he is a smart dude

to the last anonym,
You feel intelligent enough to advise others what to avoid and not avoid. Thus a simple question to a wannabe moral appostle: what is Electric? How can it be avoided?
I hope your reply will not reveal that you are a simpleton.

I hope Mimi is aware that there is someone out there capable of taking her life if something were to happen to Alemayehu. This is not a threat just a promise.

It's amazing that people waste so much time getting emotional about partial truth. The trend have been that the diaspora opposition would go any distance to fabricate exciting news that would incremenate the same group that actually brought the existing introductory democracy. I am a personal friend of Alemayehu, Alex, and my heart goes out for him, if he indeed is arrested, but I am confident that whatever violation he could be accused of, he will never be tortured or shot as it used to be in the Derg's era, and above all he definitely will come out okay after paying his dues if guilty. As of Mimi, maybe she is doing the righteous thing of bringing someone breaking the law to justice, I don't think she should be threatened or promised to be killed like in the "Netsa Irmija" or" Red Terror" times of Yesteryears.
If anyone thinks of her violating any law they should sue her and seek damage from her and or Eftin.
Love to all Ethiopians.
Let us try to practice democracy in our lives.

Anon before last,

God save Alex from friends like you! Whether you are vomiting here out of kinship to woyane or you are just another frifari lekame your types are what is very wrong with Ethiopia today. You remind me of the robot that Dr. Berhanu mentioned in his book. When they were at this public meeting outside of town, a woyane gets up and says you guys are Interhamwe. All of them were taken aback, but someone from the group asks the woayne guy what is Interhamwe in front of the audience? and of course the dumbass had no clue. The
Kinjit guy quipped that when woyanes send out their henchmen, to insult others they don't even teach them what the insult means He was just saying what he was told to say. In the same token, you the supporter of fascist murderers are trying to tell us how undemocratic we are. WHAT THE HELL DO FASCISTS KNOW ABOUT DEMOCRACY ANYWAYS? What do mafia thugs armed to the teeth and terrorizing an entire nation know about democracy? What does killing in cold blood, locking up everyone that seems remotely threatening and pillaging an entire nation so obscenely have to do with democracy? God help you cancerous people when that day comes. There will not be a soul to save you from the wrath coming your way.

ETHIOPIA WILL NEVER SEE THE LIKES OF YOU EVER AGAIN.

Alex has a fundamental right to support any party he chooses. Heck the 26 million people who stood in line for 10 hours have elected Kinijit to rule Ethiopia. So what if he supports Kinijt? Are you warning us that you are going to lock up 26 million people? Each and every decent Ethiopian has a moral duty to fight your evil mafia bosses by any means necessary. As to your chirak heroine, Mimi Sebhatu she will certainly face the music sooner than later. In fact, the whole Sebhatu clan who lived and prospered not in their godforsaken Tigray but in Shoa should really think twice about their selling their soul to the devil. Bahre Tsege, or the flower farms of her brothers come with a price.

Hate is more powerful than love and that interhamwe you were talking about might just become a
self fulfilling prophecy. Mere mortals don't have the patience of Iyob and if that is what it takes to free Ethiopia from the cancer within SO BE IT!

"...Mimi...bringing someone to justice..."Justice is not brought by individuals or news anchors. Justice is brought by a fair, transparent, and accountable justice system. Which, unfortunately, Ethiopia does not have. Only folishness and naivette can induce someone to mention Mimi and the word justice in the same sentence. Woyane will break if it does not change. That is inevitable. The demise may not be be classical in nature but it will come and its already here. Meles might get away. But his appendages?????

To the knuckle heads bickering about Alemayehu having a barbeque at his house and who he decides to befriend, go home and stuff yourselves in the toilet-
The issue is about free speech and basic human rights!!!!
I pray for Alemayehu and all the prisoners fighting for your rights and mine!

JUSTICE!!!!!

Anonymous said...

EZ keep up the good work! I know the Meles & Weyannes are desperate baby killer sick tirbalists. What we should expect from the brutal greedy low life begger thiefs? I hope justice will be served soon when kinijit and people spirit for democracy rise up!

Anonymous said...

I know you have no idea who Alex is. You are just a mouth piece for Meles and co. I do not promise such a thing lightly. Now I am personally ready for an all out fight. If Mimi feels she can get away with things like this she better think again. I am ready for a fight with Mim. I will make sure she wishes for a better day like Alex.

Tazabi said...

Good job EZ! As usual you have brought us timely news about the rejects and their evil deeds. To those who say that Alex was arrested because he was the best friend of Dr. Berhanu: The whole nation is the best friend of Berhanu now, thanks to the hapless moron Meles. Go ahead! Arrest and torture the entire nation! After all these is your heydays right? But remember, this will pass too and fortune has two faces. People are working hard and the entire nation is praying day and night for the reversal of your fortune so that you could get your comeuppance too. Mimi Sebhatu deserves everything that is due her way and then some more.

Ethiopia will survive greedy TPLF murderers!

Did he dare say he is “Alemayehu, Alex” personal friend? How dare you? I am his personal friend! Do you want proof? EZ, please correct Alex from Fantu owner to Engineer! His dad owns Fantu grocery; he is an Engineer who built many buildings. The waiting line to have Alex build your house is six month.

Now back to you “Anonymous”…you talk about “Red Terror” and “Netsa Irmija” as the past, and tries to tell us your so called personal friend will be okay after “paying his dues if guilty”. Wow, what a friend are you? As far as I know Alex dose not, will not, and never have such a friend who believes “people waste so much time getting emotional about partial truth”.

If you truly believe “Red Terror” is gone, what would we call it when more than 84 innocent demonstrators shot at daylight? Can we say “partial truth” for that?

If you truly believe “Netsa Irmija” is gone, what would we call it when democratically elected mayor is in jail? Can we say “partial truth”?

You dare to tell us “to practice democracy” in our lives. First tell your party to practice democracy before you come to this forum and act like a concerned citizen. Instead of telling us you’re Alex personal friend, tell us you support EPRDF and what EFPRDF did to Alex in your opinion is right. Then we will know who you’re and respond accordingly. Don’t hide in “asmesye” shadow and act like a concerned citizen.

last anon,

Tebarek! you are indeed a true friend. That asama banda is just another frifari lekame who is biting the hand that fed him.This is truly "yemekera zemen" where people have absolutely no qualms
about selling themselves for anything.

Wogene, if you are in Addis never let down your guard. The enemy within is much more lethal than the
woyane.

God protect Alem!

Anon,

Thank you!

Unfortunately, I am not in Addis! I wish I was though! I would have the opportunity to meet the Great Ethiopians. But I am like most Ethiopians living abroad and not doing enough to see changes in Ethiopia.

I always check EZ for the latest news and read some of “asemesyoch” comment, but I couldn’t sit back and just read one of “asemesy” comment when he/she went too far.

I know personaly two of the names mentioned who are currently serving the wayane gang of mafias to hunt innocent Ethiopians. Solomon Asmelash and Zerihun Teshome.
I know their personality and their background. Solomon has always been a cheap mentality who is not capable of thinking about consequences. Simple example is when in 1989 he sold his Derg party book to a Shabia spy for one meal and a couple of drinks.

Zerihun? give him a bundle of chat, few bottles of beer he will do any thing you ask. When I heard Mimi married him, I simply understood the type of cheap woman she is. Nothing else.

It is very sad to see my country's destiny fall in the hands of people of these sort.

DJ,

Eat your wheaties and get ready for work. It is not if, but when, woyane will bite the dust.
WE WILL MEET OUR HEROES.

Last anon,

I guess we have to go through this hellish nightmare for us to say NEVER AGAIN. The last 14 years have
been our "Zemene Mekera" and thanks to our heroes in Qaliti it is the beginning of the end of our collective nightmare.

Stay the course wogenotche!
