Debretsion Gebremichael, TPLF’s new chairman and deputy administrator of the Tigray region, has been exposed for misusing work-related travel opportunities and public funds to pay for prostitutes and escorts in cities across the globe, according to an investigative report by ESAT’s Abebe Gellaw.
The investigative report published on ESAT also contains the browser history of Debretsion’s online activities abroad as he looked up for prostitutes in such cities as Cairo, Yaounde, Bangkok, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Geneva, Seoul, Busan, Mumbai, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Las Vegas.
“Contrary to what he preaches around the world, Debretsion sees women as sex accessories and commodities for sale. Digital evidence leaked online and which has been verified and authenticated by digital experts in the course of this investigation reveals a secret life at odds with his public concern for the fate of women and girls,” writes Abebe Gellaw.
Debretsion Gebremichael, as Minister of Communication and Information Technology, who is known to deny Ethiopians legitimate access to the Internet, has given himself generous time and unlimited access to the world wide web to quench his apparent addiction to sex and porn at the expense of poor taxpayers.
“Allegations are made against public figures from time to time by members of the public. But it is the duty of a journalist to investigate, verify and sift the wheat from the chaff. This report gives a deep insight into how and by whom an oppressed nation like Ethiopia is governed. It tells a story of a tyrannical government official who denies basic rights to his subjects but abuses his power to exploit disadvantaged women around the world.” Abebe told ESAT’s news desk.
According to the report, it has been a routine for the former deputy prime minister and the father of two girls to look for hookers and pimps as he arrives at a major city.
“Debretsion, himself the father of two young women, has a long and sordid history of employing prostitutes, escorts and call girls in many cities around the world for over a decade,” writes Abebe, who is the Executive Director at ESAT.
What makes Debretsion hidden habits all the more deplorable is that he misuses hard currency from the poor country’s coffer to pay for his insatiable lust for sex and porn as he travels to major cities across the world.
“At a time when Ethiopia is hit by a foreign exchange shortage, he regularly visits exclusive brothels for rich playboys during official trips abroad. The hypocrite also faces allegations of abusing his power to force young and vulnerable girls, married women and employees to satisfy his sexual urges.” says the expose’.
“It is a classic case of the saying ’power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,’ says Abebe, who is known for his expose’ of TPLF corrupt officials and pseudo-academics with fake degrees.
Abebe noted that Ethiopians deserve decent and responsible leaders that can lead the nation by example.
“I believe Debretsion must resign from any government positions as he has no control over his life let alone making decisions on the fate of a nation of 100 million people.”
“The digital evidence dumped online includes his browser search data, corroborating that he has been squandering the poor nation’s hard currency on ‘high class’ money-for-sex escort services and strip clubs during officials trips abroad when he is undoubtedly a target of surveillance by foreign intelligence agencies,” the report says.
The investigative report uncovers the hidden promiscuity of a person who otherwise portrays himself as a man of principle with an upright personality.
