The Ethiopian girl who quickly became famous for her role in a TV show in South Africa (“Big Brother Africa”) says
“ማንም ሊረዳኝ አልቻለም” in an exclusive interview she gave to CHEWATA and Ethiopis.com from Johannesburg, South Africa.
Asked by our reporter why she was willing to expose something that Ethiopians are not willing to do in public, she responded,
” I did it to make my country famous. Kenenisa and Haile Gebreselass did it on the track field, Ethiopian Airlines is doing it in the air.
እኔ ደግሞ አልጋ ላይ !! ቦልት እንኩዋን “ኢትዮጲያውያን እንዲህ ደግ መሆናችሁን አላውቅም ነበር” ነው ያለኝ…..ልክ የልቡ እንደደረሰ: :
Reaction to Betty’s controversial appearance on the show has been swift and very angry in some parts of Ethiopia. An opposition
party called CHEWAWA ETHIOPIA, which fields about 3 members in the Ethiopian Parliament, has called for a huge demonstration
in Addis Ababa to expose what it calls “Ye Beti የፈጠጠ Bilgina” and “የእናትዬው አጉል ክህደት” and thousands of members have signed up for it.
Teklign Aragaw, one of the residents of Addis who plans to attend the planned demonstration was upset at what he calls Betty’s
un-Ethiopian act and wants a reasonable punishment for Betty as soon as she gets back to Ethiopia. “እኔ ራሴ ካልቆነጠጥኩዋት የልቤ አይደርስልኝም!”,
he said while yawning at the same time !
Although the majority of people our reporter talked to were angry at Betty, she has a few supporters as well. Belayneh Geletu, an
Addis Ababa University medical student, said, ” I don’t understand what the big deal is. Oopsi doosi. Bolt got that *****. እኔ መሰለፍ
የምፈልገው ቤቲን ሰላም ለማለት ነው! You know what I mean?” he said winking as he was purchasing 5 kilos of chat at a local merchant.
A psychology professor at Addis Ababa University, Alemenh Adugna, said this episode with Betty has done a huge damage to
Ethiopia’s reputation among fellow Africans who have watched the show in such huge numbers. “I think this is going to damage
both the nation’s psyche as well as Betty’s self image as well, ” he explained. “ለሴራሊዮን ኢትዮጲያ መስጠት ያለባት ቡና :ጤፍ : ምናምን ነው እንጂ… ብቻ ይቅር !!”
