Securing water supply in Eritrea

Securing water supply in Eritrea

By Mikal Tesfay | People who live in cities with access to running water twenty-four seven or in villages surrounded by perennial rivers can perhaps take water for granted. But not many of us can afford to do that. That is probably why World Water Day was observed on March 22 under the theme “valuing water”.

World Water Day is observed to raise people’s awareness of the global water crisis and to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, which aims to secure water and sanitation for all by 2030. Read more

Unpacking Last-ditch Efforts to Save Defunct TPLF Clique

By Bana Negusse, Abrahm Tesfay | One of the oldest sayings is that in conflict, truth is often the first casualty. Among the clearest and most apt examples of this adage that one could ever find is current distorted “news analysis and reporting” of the situation in Tigray Region, Ethiopia.

Asmara’s Other Reputations By Abrahaley Habte

Asmara’s Other Reputations

By Abrahaley Habte | Places have reputations. Or they have reputations imposed on them by outsiders. Bogota, the Colombian capital, is often associated with drug-related killings, as if life in the city revolves around drugs. Such reporting ignores other aspects of people’s lives (economic, social, etc.). In the eyes of reporters, life in Bogota can be summed up in one word, “Crime”. That is the reputation the city has developed, or has been given, or rather has been imposed on it. As a matter of fact, many mainstream media outlets do not report positive developments in Latin American countries. It was crime for many years, and now, it is Covid-19. It is the same with Africa. Take Johannesburg. Read more
