beneyam zeleke: Beneyam Zeleke adjusts the Ethiopian flag at the Alberta legislature steps on Monday, according to Toronto Star. Kashmala Fida / Star Metro But Ahmed, who was elected in April, has been working on his promises, including the release of tens of thousands of prisoners, the opening of state-owned companies to private investment, and the unconditional embrace of a peace deal with rival Eritrea. Zeleke remembers considering the new prime minister's speech as just another gimmick of a politician who raises the people's hopes only to crush them later. Websites were unblocked and opposition figures were invited to dinner. To be honest, I thought this is too good to be true, Zeleke said. Ethiopians said they could hardly keep up with the pace of change. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
