In the last months, extensive reform activities had been undergoing to make the organization free from any political affiliations. Intelligence officer is not a member of the ruling party or special friend of any party.  Any Intelligence officer of the country is only a true friend of Ethiopia and Ethiopian People that rescue the life of every citizen and his/her beloved country.

Our first official visit in the National Intelligence and Security Service was very historic one . I had led foreign relations and peace issues standing committee in the House of People Representatives for more than six years, but I have never seen the previous Director of the Service, even one day at the parliament. The parliament had never known him physically.
