Ethiopia Report Abuse
145 points - added 5 years ago by kris - 14 comments
Comments:
It is not only a matter wealth. It is also a matter of history, independence, military, politics, diplomacy etc... In all perspective you could not found any country which is more influential like ETHIOPIA in Africa. Just remember more than 20 African countries took the flag of Ethiopia after the battle of Adwa. In economy now Ethiopia is rising from the ash. Don't worry Ethiopia is going goooood

Ethiopia defeated Italian colonials at Adwa, then Africans realized a black man is capable of saying No! to Europeans. Ethiopia (along with Russia) is the only sovereign nation that hasn't been ruled by a foreign power, (A privilege even US, UK never enjoyed) Africans knew that it's possible to be still be Black and yet mighty over history. Ethiopia drew its calendar from the beginning (commemorated new millennium just 5 yrs ago -) writes with its own alphabet system (ሀለሐመሠረሰቀበተቸ .. if your Unicode sys captures it), it's own version of Christianity not dictated by European guns, Then Africans learned it's possible to draw Black-man's version of lifestyle. The first 'Azan' - prayers world wide were screamed in Ethiopia after founder Mohammad and followers were persecuted. Ethiopia rejected Neo-liberalism (the Washington consensus) and adopted DDv'tal State system, recorded upto 3rd fastest growing economy world wide only behind China and India in 2008 when global recession harassed big nations. So Africans discovered that their continent can say No! to western preconditions to survival of their own citizens. Ethiopia is building Africa's biggest dam - GERD - with 5 bln USD funded by itself to show Africa that it can dream big and satisfy it with a means d/t from only foreign aid. Ethiopia has its airline in 1940s when others were suffering from evils, the first black African to captain those crafts - Ato Alemayehu is Ethiopian. The first black African who won Olympic gold Abebe Bikila in 1950s bare-footed on the streets of Rome, that Ethiopia defeated twice within 40 years of colonial agression - he said he run bare foot bcz he "... wanted to show that my country, Ethiopia has always defeated with courage and commitment."

hell yeah ethiopia is the most influencial country in africa lets start with this "THE FLAG" green,yellow and red colours now a days it is the most popular color in africa. it is called the pan africa flag. ethiopia was the first country to have it after adwa war (italo-ethiopian war) it shows the development and the history or the future and the back of the country. it is also the only country to never colonized and fall in european hand. now a dayhs if you see most african flags it is copy of ethiopian flag. why? becase ethiopian is influential country

Ethiopia is a face for Africa not because of its recent representation on climate negotiations, and also not because it hosts many continental and international bodies such as the AU, UNECA and others… But because Ethiopia has been and is being a symbol of PEACE from earlier times to present in its contribution for freeing most African countries from colonialism including South Africa, Zimbabwe and helping peace processes in Liberia, Uganda, Rwanda, Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, ... and since Ethiopia is seen as a symbol of peace by most African countries, they have derived their flag colors from Ethiopian flag only changing in some way...at least 22 African countries have derived their flag color from Ethiopian flag. And recently, Ethiopia is enjoying a rapidly advancing economy that has been justified by IMF, the UN, EU, AU, US, UK and other international bodies and partners. And Ethiopia is building massive infrastructure projects such as national rail way project, telecommunications and ICT to reach 50 Million subscribers within the next 3 years, biggest dam in Africa and 10th in the world to generate 6GW of power, bringing number of public universities to 40 in 2015 distributed all over the country from 6 in 2005 and so much other and apprized by the THIRD fastest economies in the world next to China and India!

It was recently voted as the one of the best places to live in the world...in terms of humanitarian aspect, this follows the vast number of refugees hosted in camps around kenya, this shows we are the best neighbors ever. Everyday you hear illegal immigrants comes from uganda, tanzania, somalia and even ethiopia..they all come here seeking for greener pasture, and save for the recent insecurities encountered, we used to accomodate them

Kenya, being the economic hub of east and central africa is an influential nation whose powers are not only felt within its region but all over africa.

I think Nigeria should be placed higher than this because Nigeria has really compel forces in different areas to her sisters.Egypt for example does not have the concern of Africa but Arab.Nigeria has been sending troops to many nations in Africa for support, also supplying petroleum product to many nations in Africa and showing concern on the development of other African states. South Africa standing reign as a white country does not impact anything to her sisters.

The only country that has not followed conventional development strategies as directed by the western countries. though structural changes implemented by the Mugabe regime have resulted in economic backsliding, the fortunes of the country will become better as new structures start forward thrust. the advantage is localisation of the vast economic wealth/ dividends moving forward as opposed to recording good GDP when in actual fact the country is nothing but a western resource extraction ground. these economic adavntages coupled with the hardworking nature of general zimbabweans, high literacy and a highly capable and desciplined military favour zimbabwe to emerge as the nuclues of african economic and military power. this natuarally will see accumulated wealth by the local people being used to invest and influence sorrounding countries and probably creating the mightiest global country spanning from DRC to Cape town and from Mozambique to Angola. it is the ability to think outside the box and emulate what western countries do without following what they say that differentiate zimbabwe from the rest

Gabon Report Abuse

Comments:
Gabon is a rich oil country but people don't see where money goes. More than 2/3 of the population still leave in poverty. Some people have to use garbage dumps to find something to eat. Also, election frauds are legion. Same Bongo family controls everything. Too much corruption and embezzlement in Gabon. As we say in Gabon: we don't eat peace! Bongo family in power for 46 years has managed to ruin such a beautiful country, full of resources. The only influence of Gabon is for the Bongo to buy consciences and peace with oil money, for their own egocentric interests. Gabon is definitely a kleptocracy. Bongo family live a lavish life while most of people of Gabon are struggling to make ends meat. There is no sustainable development without democracy and respect of human rights. In Gabon, there is no democracy and human rights are violated daily. Politicians eat, yes eat children hearts for promises to gain youth and power. They call them «ritual killings»; where children, young women and others are slaughtered and their organs harvested while they are still alive. This type of country can't be proclaimed to be one of the most influential in Africa. The truth needs to be told. Not all 46 years of lies from the Bongo family.

Gabon is one of Africas oil producing countries. The country has taken in 13,000 refugees, is keeping peace between its surrounding neighbors (Eq. Guienna). It's GDP is almost 4 times as high as it's surrounding south african countries. Gabon has literally stayed out of basically all conflicts and although theres a lot, a lot of ethnic groups they coexist peacefully. Definetly deserves higher up on the list.
