ንግስት ፉራ ስመጥር የሲዳማ ንግስት የነበረች ሲሆን ሴቶችን ሁሉ መልካም ባህሪን ያስተማረችና እስካሁንም ድረስ ተቀባይነት ያላት ሴት ነች፡፡ ንግስቲቱ በጣም ብልህ ነበረች፡፡ በቅድሚያ ሴቶች ለወንዶች ሙሉ ለሙሉ ተገዢ እንዳይሆኑ፣ በሁለተኛ ደረጃ ደግሞ ሴቶች ለወንዶች ሙሉ ለሙሉ ታዛዥ እንዳይሆኑ ትመክራቸው ነበር፡፡ ከዚያም በላይ ሴቶች አይን አፋር እንዲሆኑና ወንዶች እነርሱ ስለሚያስቡት ነገር ሁልጊዜም ግምታዊ እንጂ ግልፅ እንዳይሆን ታስተምራቸው ነበር፡፡ ሃፍረተ ገላቸውንም በአደባባይ እንዳያሳዩና ሰውነታቸውንም ከጉልበታቸው እስከ ወገባቸው ድረስ እንዲሸፍኑ ትነግራቸው ነበር፡፡ ወንዶች በውበት ስለሚማረኩ ሴቶች ራሳቸውን በደንብ እንዲጠብቁ ታስተምራቸው ነበር፡፡
ነገር ግን ንግስት ፉራ ለወንዶች በጣም መጥፎ ሴት ነበረች፡፡ የማይቻሉ ነገሮችን ሁሉ እንዲሰሩ ታዛቸው ነበር፡፡
ወደ ወንዙ ሄደህ ውሃ በወንፊት አምጣ፡፡” እያለች ታዝ ነበር፡፡ ወይም በጣም ስስ ከሆነ ሳር ትልልቅ ገንዳዎችን እንዲሰሩ አለያም ከረጃጅም ፀጉሮቿ አንዱን ነቅላ ስድስት ቦታ እንዲሰነጥቁት በማዘዝ ወንዶችን ታሰቃያቸው ነበር፡፡
ከሁሉ በላይ ግን ራሰ በራና አጭር ወንዶችን አጥብቃ ትጠላ ነበር፡፡ ስለዚህ አጫጭር እንዲሁም ራሰ በራ ሰዎችን ሁሉ እንዲገደሉ ታዝ ነበር፡፡ በብዙ መቶዎች የሚቆጠሩ አጫጭርና ራሰ በራ ሰዎች ሲገደሉ አንድ መላጣና አንድ ራሰ በራ ወንዶች ግን ከዚህ ችግር ተርፈው ነበር፡፡ አጭሩ ሰው ረጃጅም ተረከዝ ያሏቸው ጫማዎች በማድረግ ሲተርፍ (ረጅም ተረከዝን የፈጠረው እርሱ ነው) ራሰ በራው ሰው ደግሞ ሰው ሰራሽ ጸጉር (ዊግ) በማድረግ ከሞት ዳነ፡፡ (ዊግን የፈጠረው ሰው እርሱ ነው፡፡)
ታዲያ አጭሩና ራሰ በራው ሰዎች ንግስቲቱን ምን እንደሚያደርጓት ግራ ገብቷቸው ነበር፡፡ ሊገድሏትም አሰቡ፡፡ ነገር ግን ይህን ማድረግ ሁለት ግዙፍ ችግሮች ነበሩት፡፡ የመጀመሪያው በባህሉ መሰረት ሴትን መግደል በፍፁም ነውር ነው፡፡ ሁለኛው ደግሞ እርሷ ንግስት ስለነበረች ይህ የማይሆን በመሆኑ ምን ማድረግ እንዳለባቸው ተቸገሩ፡፡
ከዚያም ጥቂት ካሰቡ በኋላ አንድ ዘዴ ዘየዱ፡፡ አንድ ቀጭኔ ለመያዝ አስበው ቀጭኔዎቹን ሁሉ እያሳደዱ ወደ ረግረጋማው ስፍራ ከነዷቸው በኋላ አንዱ በጭቃው ተይዞ ሲቀር እርሱን ያዙት፡፡
ንግስቲቱንም ጠርተው “አንቺ ታላቅ ንግስት ነሽ፡፡ አንቺ መሳፈር ያለብሽ ተራውን እንስሳ ሳይሆን ረጅምና ሞገስ ያለውን እንስሳ ነው፡፡” አሏት፡፡
ከዚያም በሰአቱ ቀጭኔው እግሩ ጭቃው ውስጥ ዘልቆ ስለነበረ ንግስቲቱ ያለችግር ተሳፈረችው፡፡ ከዚያም ንግስቲቱን ቀጭኔው ላይ አስረዋት ቀጭኔውን ከጭቃው ካወጡ በኋላ ሲያባርሩት ቀጭኔው ሲሮጥ፣ ሲሮጥ፣ ሲሮጥ፣ ንግስቲቱ እየተቆራረጠች መውደቅ ጀመረች፡፡ ጭንቅላቷ ወደ አንድ ቦታ፣ እጆቿ ወደ ሌላ ቦታ፣ አንጀቷ ወደ አንድ አቅጣጫ፣ እግሮቿ ወደ ሌላ ስፍራ ተበጣጥሰው ወደቁ፡፡
በዚህ ምክንያት ነው እስከ ዛሬ ድረስ ሲዳማ ውስጥ ጭንቅላት፣ እግር፣ ሰውነት፣ አንጀት፣ እጅ የሚባሉ የከተማ ስሞች ያሉት፡፡
አኦውን፣ ጭንቅላት፤ ጎዱቦሬ፣ አንጀት፤ ሌላ፣ እግር፤ አንጋ፣ እጅ ማለት ነው፡፡

Promoters of the under formation Hawassa Bank requested the central bank to transfer the equity contributions  of their shareholders to Berhan International Bank (BIB), one of the nine existing banks expected to fulfil the half a billion Birr threshold capital requirement after four years.
National Bank of Ethiopia (NBE) raised the capital requirements for banks from 75 million to 500 million Br with the motive to create strong banks, in September 2011. The regulator’s directive put 13 private banks under formation, including Hawassa in limbo. Some of the banks have still not decided their fates, including some contemplating liquidation.
Hawassa Bank started floating its shares in 2009, through 43 promoters, and was able to raise 20 million Br in capital from 530 shareholders. But, before it accomplished collecting the previously required amount, the central bank issued the new directive. The majority of the promoters were frustrated by the new capital requirement and gave up their ambition of forming a commercial bank, advocating, instead, for liquidation.
A few promoters, who preferred to stay in the sector, proposed the merger idea with an established bank and convinced others. After the promoters reached an agreement they started to look for a bank that would buys their idea and finally settled on Berhan, founded in December 2009 with a 95.7 million Br capital. Berhan, which has around 6,753 shareholders, raised its capital to 134.7 million Br in June 2011.
“Berhan is the most active amongst the already established banks, and the management of the Bank has shown good faith to work with us,” Solomon Afework, promoter of Hawassa Bank, explained of the selection.
Promoters discussed with senior managers of Berhan and signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a merger a month ago, according to Solomon. However, the central bank rejected their move, stating that Ethiopian law did not allow such unions between established and non-established banks. 
“We do not recognise Hawassa as a bank, so it does not fulfil the major requirement of merger,” an official at the central bank told Fortune. NBE advised the individuals behind the formation of Hawassa Bank to liquidate it formally and buy the shares of Berhan with their individual capacities.
Following to the decision of the central bank, promoters of Hawassa came up with another option last week. The promoters officially asked the central bank to transfer the equity contributions of shareholders into the closed account of Berhan. Celebrities and well-known personalities, such as the late artist Afework Tekle and the renowned long-distance runner, Haile Gebrselassie, are among the shareholders of Hawassa.
NBE did not have any regulation prohibiting the transfer of equity, but could not approve the move of a shareholders’ money without their full consent, according to the official from NBE. To obtain the agreement of the shareholders, the promoters prepared a petition form, last week, and requested the central bank to approve their move.
“This is the easy way to transfer the already collected amount of money to Berhan rather than dealing with it individually,” one of the promoters of Hawassa told Fortune.
The National Bank is positive about the arrangement between the two banks but still demands the overall shareholders’ agreement. They did not hold any meeting with all of the shareholders, but they have contacted the majority of them, informally, and received their individual consent, Solomon claimed.
The equity transfer is a preferable option, if the arrangements turn out to real, believes an industry analyst, who is aware of the negotiations. The arrangement is a positive contribution for Berhan by increasing their lending capacity as well as attaining the threshold capital required in 2016, he said.
Belachew Bogale, president of Berhan Bank has declined to comment, stating that the issue is at an infant stage.
