This week Dr. Arkebe Ouqbay was recognized as an outstanding Scholar in the Academic circles of London.

He broke the academic record of doctoral school in the university of London (School of Oriental and African Studies) for the first time by finishing the four year program within 23 months with high honor and great distinction. 

In this century old institution (established in 1916), the doctoral program is set for four years maximum to defend and finish the doctoral thesis.

Most of the candidates defend and finished with difficulties and hardship (if they are lucky and extraordinary). Arkebe has finished within 23 months and surprised the department of Development Studies, the university professors and students altogether. Never heard of such great achievements in such short period of time.

His external examiners from Cambridge and other well known academic institutions  awarded him "PASS WITH OUT CORRECTION" on the spot; which means great distinction with great honor (never happened and never heard of).

    is it his work or did he do it by himself or the work of comparative education that is practiced in Ethiopia at this time. academic cheating is the common in todays world education so no surprise for anything anymore. plus every little college in every corner of the world today a need of money so they can arrange anything as long as you have the dollar lol

    fake doctors debretsion, arkebe, etc real doctors kassu illala, tewdrose adnom, etc but none of them are capable of effective prime minister. Taking order from aboy sebhat or somebody else is not good prime minister. The main problem is the old weyanes keep coming back, sibhat nega, tedros hagos, abay thehaye, samura, getachew assefa, should retire before too late. Hailesilasie refused to retire

    Good for him(PHD) but let us not make him unearthly,divine,supernatural like
    our late prime minister! Arkebe is the first TPLF member to reach Ethiopian people
    in good way. As a mayor he has shown good faith and won huge trust from Addis
    residence.He changed the course of TPLF relation with Ethiopian people and I hope
    he will continue to use his achivment to serve all Ethiopian people equally

    He was an exceptional mayor of Addis Abeba. He was Mayer only from 2003-2005, but was named "African Mayor of 2005" by Broadcasting Network of Africa.

    I have just google and there is no single publication in the name of Mr. Aqubay. You can fool the poor Ethiopian by telling them that TPLF can make some magic, but u cannot fool the whole population.
    I appreciate if he did it through distance learning and this type of PhD has some merit issue as they do have a lot of cheating.

Typical habesha thinking mekena, worenga, sira fet kuch belo mamet. Instead of envying other people try educating yourself and bettering your life.

    I like Arkebe from what I heard of him from the people I trust. I would plead to him so he could come and help build The New Ethiopia by with other patriots being a bridge b/n this gov't and the people.

    A lot of people in Addis admire Arkebe for his great leadership as a mayor of Addis. Even most opponents of TPLF has admired him for his leadership. My mother is major TPLF hater but even she admire Arkebe. Although I do not know him and never been in Addis when he was a mayor, I have respect for him based on what I hear about him.

    Let's see what he is going to do with his fake PhD? definitely he won't get a job in the UK other than Tigray community worker filling forms for asylum seekers, and the school awarded him doctorate as a title than as a profession. President Girma also a doctor awarded from California university, Tilahun Gessesse is a doctor awarded from AA uni, Ali Birra from Jimma uni.

    Arkebe is Leba like his brother in law Brehane G/kristos, He was in charge of (EFFORT) the mother of all looters, when he was mayor of Addis what did he do with all power he got as executive member of TPLF? all bull$hit!

    He was an excellent mayor of Addis Abeba and it is very commendable that he pursued further education.
    Habesha people are famous for being jealous and negative about everything.
    Anyway, if this news is false, it will be revealed soon. For now, I prefer to believe that the news is true; therefore, I congratulate Dr. Arkebe from the bottom of my heart.

    Dont be jeolous of him. You are not educated and his achievment is beyond your reach doesnt mean that you should be joulous of him. Typical abesha. your eyes turn red when you see others success.

    In order to get your PhD, you got to have at least 3 to 4 papers published in peer reviewed Journals. These people totally underestimated Ethiopians.as 'lasta' down explained it. go and find what he had published in his name in these last 23 months or so, you would find none. But one thing in the United kingdom is that, if you are part of african dictators circle, you can buy PhD.

    How much he paid for it? money talks. school of Oriental and African study is crap school. Aba dula also collected his numerous degrees by doing nothing other than busy looting. This is why I respect Meles, he didn't need to load himself with titles to get respect or to be heard, if he wanted he could have got dozens of titles including doctorates, military titles.

    For crying out loud.

    I like arkebe. But never trust this BS from Aigaforum. Plus it is of Oriental and African Studies, which is just a very easy social science. Given that he probably has no financial worries and doesn't need their salary,it would definitely take him less time. Please don't mislead our people.

    In fact, he has no publications on google scholar. Go figure :)
