Dear Editor, I got an e-mail from one of my friends concerning a message that was posted under my name (and with reference to my previous poistion in Addis Ababa University), in your forum on March 26/2009 under the title “My testimony on education in Ethiopia”. I was not at all aware of this message and I checked the posted message in your web page; I could not even read it fully. It is completely appalling that some one wrote his opinions in my name. I have not written this message and all the opinions in the message are not at all mine!! I cannot guess who does this but this is completely illegal. I kindly request you to retract the message!!
