Ethiopia: What exactly is “Cadre Cola”?

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Ethiopia, Politics

What exactly is “Cadre Cola” in Ethiopia? [1]: Cadre Cola is what cadres consume. It is bottled by and for an exclusive clientele of government and quasi-government aid bureaucrats as well as third world dictators and their cronies. The taxpayers who finance it and the oppressed in whose name it is bottled either assume the Cadre Cola business is an obligation or something they can't live without.
