Ethiopians run away to Kenya to only face more nightmares

Unable to freely live and work in their own country, Ethiopians are migrating to Kenya in unprecedented numbers. In exile their dreams of better life turn into more nightmares as they fall prey to corrupt authorities and human traffickers. What are these Ethiopians running away from? The “remarkable economic growth” that the Meles regime and its supporters claim? The “popular” ruling party that “won” 99.6% election victory? Many of these Ethiopians were living in some of the most fertile areas of Ethiopia. Their land is now being taken away and sold/leased to foreign corporations (as reported here) at bargain prices.  The following video is a special report by Kenyan NTV (Sep 2010).
