You said right Belal,

Ethiopia is home for 85% of the water while its people suffer from prolonged draught and famine. Basides, as you have said this has nothing to do with the natural flow of the water. Let's all positive and support development projects here in Ethiopia.

If Meles and his underlings and Ethiopians truly wanted peace then why are you against democracy and self-determination?
You cannot claim the Nile River which Egypt occupies if you yourself occupy Somali lands (Somali region) and other regions.

my friend, don't be selfish! in fact we should have to get more benefits out of it as more than 85% of its water flows from beloved mother land of Ethiopia!

Anybody can not have legal ground to teaches because of Millennium Nail river Dame.
The fairer is on our hand to destroy ourselves by our not by foreign enemy our government doesn’t want to come on the truth politics this mines the riel democracy. So the millennium dam is plan not for the development of the country the objective is to divert the people of Ethiopia to Nile River Dame.
So to bring the rile unity of Ethiopian Community the Government should be correct Narrow nationalize
All Ethiopians should treated equally if they are member of EPRDF or member of Onege if this is not done we are repeating agene the derg regime philosophy which is the bad one lick weyane ,Gentaye , asegentaye ….. so the TPLF know repeating the dirge philosophy so anybody if he have love Ethiopia should discuses and com to the truth.
God Bless Ethiopia !!!!!

This is the time for every true Etiopian to involve in the transformation of our country. The issue of Abay is not the issue of politics, religion,ethinicity and so on but the issue of one step to eradicate poverty and changing the old image of Ethiopia. I have one message for Ethiopian people do not hear those who oppose us but continue what you have started. Victory is ours!!!

It is a massive project which would be of mutual benefit. The best thing is to settle for win-win solution, rather than driven by scarce mentality to deny countries like Ethiopia their right to use the Nile.
Best thing to do is to leap forward with abundance mentality which would benefit all riparian countries.
Best days are coming for the region, come on shift your paradigm and make good use of it!

it is one step to move for Ethiopia in the positive direction and the people of Ethiopia must build their strength of unity to build this historical dam and we have to work all for our country rather than opposing for nothing. Lets give our hand for work...
