I love Ethiopia. The people and the country can teach us all so much. This is a horrid story. With deforestation having wrought so much destruction, and the people are trying to reclaim that, with children, men and women suffering without sufficient water, resources, health care, and family planning, this is a disaster in the making.

““My employer would sexually abuse me and beat me. I was forced to work seven days a week, 20 hours a day. I was not allowed to leave the house. It was hell,” she said.

“They did not pay me for one year even though I worked also for their relatives. I am so tired and so sad.
[But] I am so happy to be back in Ethiopia,” she told IPS.”

People need to understand that this is NORMAL behavior for Saudis. They are some of the biggest racists in the world and their murderous behavior towards foreign workers – especially black foreign workers – is simply evil.

People who have been and still are a largely tribal and believe in and practice the evil tenets of Islam is what the Saudis are. That they and other socially Neandertal Islamic tribes should be sitting upon the world’s largest oil fields is one of life’s bigger cosmic jokes.

Although Ethiopia has small reserves of gold, platinum, copper, potash, natural gas and hydropower; I suspect that the new dam which would affect the Blue Nile is based on their need for water to irrigate crops. This however could lead to conflict with Egypt. The PRC is also a driving force alongside increased repatriation to construct the new dam.
