Ethiopia Christian group to stage rally against homosexuality


An Ethiopian religious group on Thursday announced plans to stage an anti-gay rally this month to protest what it called "rising incidents" of homosexuality in the conservative Horn of Africa nation. The initiative comes after Uganda and Nigeria recently passed tough anti-gay laws, although Ethiopian authorities said they were "indifferent" to the demonstration. "The country has seen an increase in gay-related activities and this has reached an alarming stage," said Dereje Negash, the head of a Christian Association, Woyniye Abune Teklehaimanot. The demonstration is set to take place in the Ethiopian capital on April 26, the first mass rally against homosexual rights in the country. It is jointly organised with the Addis Ababa Youth Forum, a civil society organisation, and has been given the green light by city authorities. The Ethiopian government, however, insisted that any group had the right to freedom of expression and that it was not for or against the rally. Homosexuality is already illegal in the country like in most of Africa's 54 nations, and punishable by up to 15 years in prison. "We are indifferent, we just see it as the right to have a demonstration, otherwise we don't support or oppose,” Information Minister Redwan Hussein told AFP. Ethiopia is a deeply religious society, with over 60 percent of the population practising Orthodox Christianity, according to official figures.  Source ( AFP)

Ethiopia to establish Joint forces with Sudan from any external aggression and potential threat





The Ministry of Defense (MoD) on Thursday announced that it had agreed with the government of Sudan to establish joint forces to tighten security along the common border of the two nations from any external aggression and potential threat. While reporting the ministry's six-month performance report, the minister of defense, Siraj Fegessa, told MPs that the country is carrying out the policy of co-existence and development which had borne successful results. In implementing this policy, he said that the ministry has signed bilateral agreements with 14 nations in the field of military diplomacy.
 "Giving priority to neighboring countries, we have made agreements with these nations in the region to prepare a joint plan aimed at ensuring and safeguarding our common borders save with Eritrea. The agreements include working jointly in the field of education, training, experience sharing, and on common issues to work together on peace and security demands in the region" he added. Siraj, in his report, stressed that especially with the Sudan, the ministry had signed an agreement to promote the common interest of the two countries and to keep all areas across the border intact. "So we are working together to form a joint military force," he said. Asked whether Ethiopia's armed forces were ready to protect the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) from any possible attack, Siraj told MPs, "I never believe there will be any direct attack on the dam."  "Cross-border attack is not as easy as it is reported by the media. But we don't just sit idle. As we always do, we are always prepared as far as our security is concerned.  Source ( Reporter)
