Dr Ambachew Mekonnen Speech in Seattle

 

Tamrat is quick to admit that he is the product of such a system. The trivialization or obscuring of women as they are relegated to the roles of a mother, a caregiver, and a nurturer continues. While the perception of the domestic roles of women is changing, they are still perceived to be primary caregivers and nurturesand the kitchen is largely the domain of women. Modern life has come to respect the agency of women in some sense but Ethiopian society has still very far to go in installing gender equality. His work stands witness to this gap.

Moreover, the complexity of a woman as a human being and a member of society should not be forgotten. The perpetuation of the image of the female as mother, caregiver or embodiment of morality and overall good has come to plague Ethiopian society.

Tamrat’s paintings, portraits of mektefias distorted to resemble feminine figures, plays with this notion. Their diverse poses and shapes could be said to resemble the heterogeneity of women.

Tamrat has explored various concepts that reflect socially relevant issues or challenge accepted norms. A concept he still works on under the title ‘Afersata’ explores traditional Ethiopian forms of enacting justice in contrast with the modern judicial system.

 

Two-time Olympic gold medalist, Haile Gebrselassie was elected as the new president of the Ethiopian Athletics Federation amid discontent over mismanagement of the country’s track body, in a closed-door assembly held late on Saturday (November 05). He is expected to help improve efficiency as the country deals with doping investigations and poor results on the track.

He won Olympic gold in the 10,000 meters in 1996 in Atlanta and 2000 in Sydney. Gebrselassie says he wants to improve the country’s image and work more closely with athletes because he understands their needs. “My plan is to go to the athlete.
