Britain axes aid to Ethiopian police amid human rights outcry

Document warning that aid programme posed ‘high’ risk to human rights deleted from Government website as £27 million aid scheme axed

By Matthew Holehouse, Political Correspondent

ETHIOPIA-US-DIPLOMACY

October 31, 2014 (The Telegraph) — Britain has suspended most of a £27 million aid programme to support Ethiopia’s police force, The Telegraph has learnt, amid mounting allegations of torture, rape and murder by the regime.

Ministers pulled the plug on a scheme intended to improve criminal investigations, help Ethiopian police “interact with communities on local safety” and help women access the justice system.

The cancellation coincides with an Amnesty International report that documents how the Ethiopian security forces have conducted a campaign of torture, mutilation, rape and murder in order to suppress political opposition.

Britain has given £1 billion in aid, including around £70 million for “governance and security” projects, to the country over three years. Critics of the ruling regime have disappeared, and Amnesty International found allegations of men being blinded and women being gang raped and burnt with hot coals by regime officials.

There are mounting fears for the safety of Andy Tsege, a British national and critic of the regime, who was abducted in Yemen before being tortured and sentenced to death.

The Department for International Development said the project was cancelled because it did not represent “value for money” and because of “risk” in getting it delivered on time.

It insisted that the cancellation of the project was entirely unrelated to allegations of human rights abuses, and said the decision pre-dated the Amnesty International report.

However, earlier this year an internal government assessment of the programme warned it posed a “high” risk to human rights, upgrading it from medium.

The document noted that the Government of Ethiopia appeared reluctant to improve the human rights situation. “The underlying assumption of GoE’s commitment to reform in the security sector is sensitive and subject to a range of factors (e.g. terrorist attacks inside Ethiopia). In light of this, we propose elevating the risk to ‘high’.”

It also warned that work had been “poor quality” with “weak value for money”. There were “tensions” between British aid workers and the Government of Ethiopia, with Ethiopian civil servants complaining over being “overwhelmed” by paperwork. Work fell behind the timetable.

The document, an annual assessment of the scheme, was subsequently deleted from the website.

DfID said the document was deleted because the programme had changed. The decision to axe the programme went unannounced before inquiries from this newspaper, despite mounting concern at the deteriorating situation in the country.

A DfID spokesman said: “DFID has suspended major activities under the Community Safety and Justice programme because of concerns about risk and value for money. We are updating the website to reflect programme changes.”

One element of the scheme, run by Harvard University in measuring the effectiveness of justice reforms, will continue to be funded by Britain.

The deletion of the documents was detected by Reprieve, the anti-death penalty charity which is campaigning for Mr Tsege’s release.

“While MrTsege is held in a secret prison in Ethiopia under sentence of death, Dfid has inexplicably scrubbed alltraces of this funding from its website,” said Maya Foa, the head of the death penalty team. “The Government should be using its extensive influence in Ethiopia to ensure the safety of one of its nationals, not aiding the very forces responsible for his detention – then removing the evidence.”

A blistering report on Thursday warned that British aid money is fuelling corruption overseas. One development project in Nepal encouraged people to forge documents to gain grants while police stations in Nigeria linked to British aid were increasingly demanding bribes, the Independent Commission on Aid Impact found.

Celebrate Qubee & Afan Oromo: 23 Years of Success Since the Nov. 3, 1991 Adoption of Qubee

CelebrateAfanOromoQubee2014

Posted: Onkoloolessa/October 26, 2014 · Finfinne Tribune | Gadaa.com | 

CelebrateAfanOromoQubee2014_4

As November 3 (Qubee Day) is fast approaching, it’s important to celebrate and understand the significance of November 3, 1991 – the day Qubee was adopted as the alphabet of Afan Oromo, after being endorsed by Oromo as well as other international linguists. With Qubee, Afan Oromo, the language so many fought and died to keep alive and legal, was sprung into its current revival period.

Afan Oromo is Africa’s fourth most widely “spoken” language, and since the November 3, 1991 adoption of Qubee, it’s also becoming one of the top “written” languages in Africa.

The history of Oromo shows that the Abyssinian successive ruling classes, emboldened by ignorance and arrogance, had the mission to wipe out this language; and their mission failed by the relentless national struggle of many Oromo generations before 1991 and after 1991.

When November comes, we are also reminded of the sacrifices paid by the Oromo youth during the 2005 FDG, which broke out on November 9, 2005 to fight against the subjugation of the Oromo people by the Tigrean TPLF regime.

The sacrifices of the Oromo youth have been seared into the Nation’s memory forever. Kabada Badhassa, Jagama Badhane, Alemayehu Garba, Gaddisa Hirphasaa, Morkata Idosa, Gemechu Benesa Bula, Lelisa Waqgari Bula, Yaasiin Muhaammad, Dirribee Jifaar, Simee Tarrafaa, Shibbiruu Damisee and many many others – died for Oromo’s national liberation and national pride, and to uphold Oromo’s national heritage, such as Qubee, the Gadaa System,Aaddaa Oromoo, to mention just a few of the Oromo national heritage.

barruuዘመነ ቅኝ-ግዛት (the colonial era) ሲታሰብ ለኣፍርካ ሕዝብና ለምድሪቷ የማይሽር  መራራ ትዝታ ኣለዉ። የዚህ ክፉ ቀን የክፋቱ ልክ፣ የሕመሙ መጠንና የጸጸቱ ጥልቀት ከወሰን ያለፋ ዘመን ተሻጋሪ ነዉ።  የሀገር ባለቤትነትን ከመነጠቅ ኣልፎ ከሰብዓዊ ፍጡር ምድብ እስከ መዉረድ የደረሰ በደል የተስተናገደበት የታሪክ ጥቀርሻ በመሆኑ መቼም በጊዜ ወሰን የማይገደብ የታሪክ ትዉስታ ይዞ ይቆያል። ጥቁሩ ባለሀገር ሕዝብ (the indigenous people) በነጮቹ ወራሪዎች ዕይታ ሲመዘን እንደሳይጠን፣ ያልሰለጠነና ክፉ እንስሳ እንጂ እንደሰብዓዊ ፍጡር አይታሰብም ነበር። ይህንኑ አመለካከት ለማስረጽ ሲባልም ሁለንተናዊ ማንነቱን የሚያጥላሉ በርካታ አዋራጅ (pejorative) ስያሜዎች ተሰጥቶታል። የኣፍርካ ምድርም ቢሆን ወርቅና አልማዝ በገፍ እየታፈሰበት እንኳ የጨለማ ዕምብርት (heart of the darkness, the abode of barbarism and cruelty) ከመባል ኣላመለጠም።

በኣንጻሩ ደግሞ ነጮቹ ቅኝ ገዥዎች ለራሳቸዉ የሚሰጡት ግምትና ሁለንታናዊ ማንነታቸዉን የሚስሉት በታቃራኒዉ ገጽታ ነበር። ቋንቋቸዉ፣ ባሕላቸዉ፣ የተፈጥሮ ገፀ-ቀላማቸዉና ተክለ- ሰዉነታቸዉ በአጠቃላይ ሁለንተናዊ ማንነታቸዉ የመጠቀና የበላይ (superior) እንደሆነ ይሰብካሉ። ጥቁሩ ሕዝብ በኣእምሮ ብስለትም ሆነ በሰዉነት ብቃቱ የበታች (inferior) ሆኖ እንደተፈጠረ በጭፍኑ ይመሰክራሉ።  እንግሊዛዊዉ ታዋቂ ደራሲና ገጣሚ Rudyard Kipling ጥቁር ሕዝቦችን ማሰልጠንና ማስተዳደር የነጮቹ ዋነኛ ኃላፊነትና ሸክም እንደሆነ በድፍረት ተናግሯል። የብሪትሽ ቅኝ ግዛትን ወደ ኣፍርካ በማስፋፋቱ ሂደት ላይ ከፍተኛ ሚና የነበረዉ ፌረድሪክ ሉጋርድም (Frederick Lugard) በበኩሉ “ለዚህ ስልጣኔ ኣልባና የጭለማ ዕምብሪት ለሆነዉ ሕዝብና ምድር የባሕል ግስጋሴና የስልጣኔ ብርሃን ማምጣት ነዉ” በማለት የወረሪዎቹን ስዉር ዓለማ ምክንያታዊ ለማስመሰል ጥሯል

ይህንን ኣንዱን የበላይ ሌላዉን የበታች ማድረግን ዓላማዉ ያደረገ ኣድሎኣዊ የማንነት አሳሳል( Identity characterization) ለመተግበር ከፍተኛ የቋንቋ ምሁራንን (lexicographers, psycholinguists, editors) ወዘተ የመሳሰሉትን እንዳሳተፋ ይነገራል። ትርጉሙ ወይንም ቃላቶቹ የሚሸከሙት ምስል(connotation) ከእዉነተኛዉ ኣፍሪካዊ ማንነት ጋር ምንም ዓይነት ዝምድና ባይኖረዉም እንኳ በሂደት ግን የሥነ-ልቦና ተጽዕኖ ማሳደሩ አልቀረም። ዛሬም ቢሆን እነዚህ ሁለቱ ቀለማት በብዙዎቹ ኣእምሮ ዉስጥ የሚፈጥሩት ምስልና የሚወክሉት ቃላዊ ፍቺ የተጽዕኖዉን ጥልቀት ያመላክታል። ያም ሆኖ ግን የሕዝቦችን እዉነተኛ ማንነት ዉጦ የሚቀር ኃይል አልተገኘምና ቀኑ ሲደርስ የጭለማ ስብከት በእዉነተኛ ብርሃን ከመሸነፍ አልተረፈም።

ለመንደርደሪያ ያህል ካነሳሁት አጭር ቅኝት ሰሞኑን በእጅጉ ሲከነክነኝ ወደ ሰነበተዉ ተመሳሳይ ጉዳይ ልዝለቅ። የኦሮሞን ሕዝብ ባህል፣ ቋንቋ፣ ታሪክና አጠቃላይ የማንነት እሴቶቹን ለመደምሰስ ዘመናትን ያስቆጠረ ዘመቻ ሲካሄድ መቆየቱ አጠያያቂ አይደለም። ሆኖም ግን ህዝቡ በዚህ ረገድ ባካሄደዉ ትግል በሚያስደንቅ ፍጥነት እዉነተኛ ማንነቱን በትዉልዱ ልብ ዉስጥ መልሶ ለመስረጽ ተችሏል። በዚህ የትግል ዕምርታ የሚደነግጡ ቀናተኛ ግለሰቦች ኣለዋቂነታቸዉን በሚያሳብቅ መልኩ በደነገጡ ቁጥር ኣላዋቂነታቸዉን የሚያጎላ አጸያፊ ቋንቋን ከመጠቀም ኣልታቀቡም። ከማይሰለጥነዉ የዕብሪተኞች አንደበት
