Neftenya should held to account for genocide of Oromos, Afars, Gurages, Welaitas, Sidamos, Benishangul-Gumuz and crimes against humanity against Ethiopia. Also, Neftenya should be charged for loot of cattle, grains and coffee, house and crop burnings in the above mentioned communities. Neftenya should be held to account for sale hundreds of thousands of members of the above-mentioned communities into slavery to foreigners and locals as well as keeping them as slaves to work for free on neftenya farms under deplorable conditions.
Ethiopians will not rest until they get justice.

No place for the likes of you in Ethiopia. You can either go to arab lands and wash their qiT or you stay in the west and help in translating amharic conversations.

If you don't like my comment, it implies that you are against justice and reconciliation for peace and unity. I doubt you hate Ethiopia so much.

Gone are the days we used to be fooled by western terms like "democracy", "self-determination" , "equality", "justice" et al.
We have less abstract but more important goals like food, shelter, protection, education and health.

That is of course distraction from this important issue: the crown.
The crown should be reinstated in post-tplf Ethiopia while the government is elected in free and fair elections. A kind of constitutional monarchy model that we have in Thailand would best serve the country's interest. A kind of undoing what the students movement did.

Italy and Ethiopia had good relationship after the Second World War. Italy had financed many projects at the time of the Emperor, The Dergue and the EPRDF. Most Italians are against this monument and seems can do nothing about the decentralisation system of Italy. But that is no excuse, I wonder if these neo Nazis would be allowed to erect monument for Adolf and Benito. We have to say thank you to our Prince for publicizing this arrogancy of neo fascists.

Read the model in Thailand, we can copy it mostly.

"The King as Head of State

Under the present constitution like all the previous ones, the King is the Head of State who is enthroned in a position of reverence and cannot be violated. No one can expose the King to any sort of accusation. As Head of State, the monarch performs several state functions. All legislative, executive and judicial functions are conducted under the King’s name. He signs bills passed by the legislature, appoints the prime minister on the advice of the legislature, appoints cabinet ministers and high ranking government and military officers on the advice of the prime minister. The monarch also appoints the Buddhist supreme patriarch and high ranking Buddhist monks, confers honors on officials and other citizens and can grant pardon to those convicted of crimes. The monarch does not bear any decision-making responsibility in performing those functions. The Prime Minister is responsible for most of the symbolic functions the King performs. In addition, several ceremonial functions are performed by the monarch. For instance, he receives foreign ambassadors and other foreign government representatives. As the patron of Buddhism, he presides over important Buddhist religious ceremonies. The King is also the patron of other religions which have followers in the country. Another important function as Head of State is that His Majesty is the honorary supreme commander of the armed forces. During the period of absolute monarchy, the King was the real leader of the military and was responsible for all military affairs, including conducting wars. Since 1932, the monarch’s power and authority has been constitutionally limited. The King has ceased to command the armed forces, but he is still given the position of ‘honorary’ supreme commander. This position, although there is no real command authority, reflects the traditional bond between the monarch and the armed forces. "

I agree, besides all constitutional monarchies are more democratic and prosperous than most republic countries. Look at north Europe, they are very stable, tolerant and rich. Ethiopia has always been monarchy with its honouring systems. I can understand republic for other African countries but Ethiopia has never been ruled without monarchy. Ras, Dejazmach, Kegnazmach, Fetewrary etc were beautiful honoring systems based on thousend years of tradition like they have in Britain. But Ethiopians read a couple of books of Karl Marx and destroyed their own tradition in short time. It is a shame.

You can't copy Europe and impose it on Ethiopia. Tried and failed. No way monarchy can be reinstated. Of course you want the total disintegration of Ethiopia. Why would you look for carnage and disintegration whereas Amara can make a country of itself and reinstate monarchy?

The time may have come for a constitutional monarchy in Ethiopia.
