Akkam nagaa jirtuu, gootowwan goototaa,
Sanyiin dhaalaa biyyaa ilmaan Oromootaa,
Baga nagaa taatan nageenyi furmaataa,
Anis nagaan qaba, yoo ta'es baqataa,
Galanni haa gahu, Rabbii hunda horataa!!!
President Obama embarks on a trip to Africa this week that includes a controversial stop in Ethiopia, where the authoritarian government has come under sharp international criticism for its handling of political dissent.
The Ethiopia visit has raised hackles among human rights advocates who question the administration’s level of concern about human rights, as it seeks to advance new security and economic goals on a continent where good governance and democratic freedoms often do not top the priority list. But to others it reflects the evolution of America’s relationship with the continent, which now offers opportunities for the United States in a way it didn’t decades ago when it was primarily an aid recipient.
