President of Ethiopia's Benishangul-Gumuz region defected

President of Ethiopia's Benishangul-Gumuz region, Ato Yaregal Aysheshum, has defected and joined the opposition camp earlier this month.

The Ethiopian Review Intelligence Unit has learned that Ato Yaregal had sought political asylum in an east African country, and when his safety was threatened, he was taken to a third country.

Although Ato Yaregal was the President of Benishangul-Gumuz, a region that is abundantly fertile and rich in natural resources, he had little say in how the region was administered. As in all the other regions of Ethiopia, all important decisions are being made by officials of the Tigrean People Liberation Front (Woyanne) from Mekelle and Addis Ababa.

Ato Yaregal was particularly disconcerted by Woyanne's recent instigation of ethnic conflicts between Oromos and Benishangul, which finally led him to join the opposition Ginbot 7 Movement, according to ER sources.

After joining Ginbot 7, Ato Yaregal was successful in passing highly valuable information about the regime's criminal activities. When the Woyanne intelligence was getting close to him, he managed to escape with the help of Ginbot 7 local operatives.

Woyanne agents are currently threatening him with confiscating all his properties in the country and hurting members of his family, while reporting that he is abroad getting medical attention, in order to lure him into returning.

Ginbot 7 officials declined to comment on Ato Yaregal's case.

It depends on who you request, but quite a few pearl professionals currently agree that freshwater cultured pearls can rival the attractiveness of their saltwater cousins.
The changing trends in jewelry are also true with the kinds of
materials used to make the different kinds of jewelry.
But there is only one generation that has a distinct ring of their own
- the baby boomers.

"I went outside this morning in the daylight with no makeup and my face still red and some scabbing into it to walk 2 blocks for the mailbox. You can also try a blended mix of a quarter cup of chickpeas, 1 / 4 teaspoon of organic fresh lemon juice, and just a little bit of flax seed oil. Most suffers of acne use a challenge on how to do away with acne and pimples. The big plus with using olive oil like a facial cleanser acne problems on a regular basis that, unlike traditional facial cleanser, it actually does not take away your skin layer of its natural balance.

Promise Rings are worn with a promise for any type of activities
or moral responsibilities that are meant for a lifetime and not on temporary basis.

Also, some individuals are unable to have their tongue accurately pierced thanks to your orientation of necessary nerves and blood vessels.
Big and chunky beaded necklaces are still the emphasis of this summer time.

Outside of that promise, the purity or promise rings are quickly a reminder to the personal to help keep his or her word to God.
Even so, select cautiously in accordance with preference and spending budget.
Oftentimes, couple will give promise to one another as a means of declaring their love for one another.
