It is clear that Ethiopia contributes 86% of the river water and what Egypt claims is to be the only beneficiary at the expense of Ethiopians dying from short of rain. What logic is Egypt using? Actually, fair utilization of the river water is only the position of the government of Ethiopia. The position of the ordinary Ethiopian people is to sell the water just as others sell their oil. There is no reason why water cannot be commoditized. It is a resource of the source country. The source country has natural and legal right to use its resources.
In my opinion, it is wisdom for Egypt and Sudan to cooperate with the basin countries to utilize the river water fairly than facing the worst. The worst to them is to buy the river water per cubic meter and use or not to use at all. This is the position of ordinary Ethiopians including me on this issue.
