Ethiopian Born Eyerusalem Married to A man She Meet on a TV Show

Published: May 26, 2015 by bini Filed under: Ethiopian News



A bride who was wed on Married At First Sight has opened up about the reason she decided to take the plunge and go on the show, and dished the dirt on what went down on her honeymoon.

In the next episode of the controversial show, set to air on Monday night, Zoe, 25, will walk down the aisle and come face-to-face with Victorian plumber Alex.

The pair then embark on a romantic holiday to the Great Barrier Reef, where the couple drank champagne, did 'a lot of making out', and 'put the hot spa to good use'.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia Zoe said her motivation to go on the show came from her dissatisfaction with previous relationships.
'I think I was getting a bit sick of having sh** relationships, making the same mistakes and not looking beyond my area,' she revealed.
Describing herself as motivated and ambitious, the 25-year-old said her parents relationship also had an influence on what she was looking for in a partner.

'My parents are definitely my inspiration they’re really beautiful together,' Zoe said.

'I value things like someone who is really caring, affectionate, someone you can have a conversation and a friendship with.
'Someone who loves you for all that you are and who believes you can be more... and someone you could have a laugh with'.

Zoe, who was adopted from Ethiopia along with her twin brother aged five, said her family was shocked at her decision to take part in the show.

'I think they didn’t believe me, they thought I was joking around.

'It’s not something I would usually do I’m quite a straight kid,' she added.

But Zoe also said she would proudly tell any potential future children about how she met their dad should the marriage work out.
'I would prefer my kids to do something like this than be on Tinder every weekend.'

Although the second episode sees her looking terrified at the altar before she's due to marry a man she just met, Zoe said they soon warmed up to one and other.

Speaking of the first time she saw her now husband, the 25-year-old said she thought he was very handsome, and was 'taken' by his bright blue eyes.

AU election observers: Ethiopia’s voting clam and peaceful with some irregularities
By Elias Meseret, DireTube Correspondent



(DireTube News. Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) - The African Union’s Election Observation Mission to the recently held Ethiopian election said the voting was peaceful, calm and credible but with some irregularities.

The presiding officers of the Mission said the process in 21 polling stations did not comply with regulations that mandates officials to show the ballot box as empty before the opening of the poll.

This was unveiled earlier today during the preliminary statement presented by the former Namibian President, Hifikepunye Phoamba, to the media and Addis based members of the diplomatic community.

“It is important to note that the simple act of showing the ballot box as empty before opening the poll contributes to confidence building and transparency,” Phoamba said. He added that the AU observers have seen campaigning inside polling stations in 23 percent of the sites visited by the mission, which he called was ‘not in accordance with the law’ and added there are some instances where the ruling party was urging voters to cast their votes to them.

24 Years Since Airlift of 14,500 Ethiopian Jews in Under 2 Days

The IDF on Sunday marked 24 years since Operation Solomon, which was conducted on May 24, 1991, and saw 14,500 Ethiopian Jews airlifted to Israel by 34 planes in 36 hours, constituting the largest aerial mission to bring Jews home to Israel.

Ethiopia had prohibited its Jews from making aliyah (immigration) to Israel, leading Israel in the 1970s to authorize the IDF to act in bringing Ethiopian Jews to Israel, reports the official IDF Blog.

Three massive airlift operations were conducted starting in 1984, concluding with Operation Solomon.

"Operation Solomon truly represents what Zionism is," said Maj. Gen. Avihu Bin-Nun, who was the commander of the IAF at the time of the operation. "It demonstrates the purpose for the State of Israel: to provide a home and shelter for Jews around the world who have suffered and were prosecuted merely for bearing the Jewish religion."

Several Kenyan police officers were killed in an attack Monday night by suspected Somali militants in the northeastern Garissa county, where 148 students were massacred last month, police said Tuesday.

A police spokesman, George Kimoti, confirmed there was an attack in the Garissa region, and two security officials said many police officers had been killed in an Al-Shabaab ambush but could not give an exact death toll.  The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters.

Kenya's Daily Nation newspaper reported that at least 20 police officers were feared dead in the attack in Garissa's Yumbis village.

The victims -- who were on their way to rescue another team of officers wounded in an attack earlier on Monday -- were moving in a convoy of four vehicles that the militants then burned. In the earlier attack, three police officers had been injured when their vehicle ran over a land mine, the officials said.

Current Prime Minister, Hailemariam Desalegn (L), is favourite to retain the post but faces competition from leading challengers Debretsion Gebremikael (C) and Tewodros Adhanom (R)

Ethiopians have been voting for a new parliament in the first election since the death of long-serving Prime Minister Meles Zenawi in 2012.

The outgoing parliament has only one opposition MP. Mr Zenawi's successor Hailemariam Desalegn is expected to hold on to power.

Polls closed at 18:00 local time.

No major irregularities were reported, election officials said. However, the opposition said their representatives were barred from some polling stations.

Voting in some areas has been extended to Monday after some polling stations ran out of ballot papers.

Observers from the African Union issued an initial assessment to say the polls were conducted in a calm and peaceful manner.

Some preliminary results will be announced this week, the electoral board says. Full results are due next month.

Meles Zenawi's Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) has been in power for almost a quarter of a century.

More than 36m Ethiopians - and 57 political groups - registered for the election. Many groups are organised along ethnic lines.

Other contenders include the Ethiopian Federal Democratic Unity Forum, a coalition known as Medrek [the Forum] and the Semayawi [Blue] Party, which has held protest rallies and draws support from young people.

In 2005, 174 opposition politicians won seats in the 547-seat parliament, but many did not take them up after pronouncing the vote rigged.
