To Mr. stern, your infatuation with the late midget dictator is written all over the article.
If you had really missed him, why don’t you dig his graveyard and take his skeleton to your house & worship it for ever!!!

Zemenawi new Meles

Meles was a visionary intelligent leader Africa has never known. Those who don’t believe that should travel to Ethiopia and see the difference with the time of Mengistu. awko yetegna bikesekisut aysemam those who are blind to see all these achievements are nothing but political whores. History shall judge Him as the greatest leader Ethiopia had ever seen.

Thanks God he is gone. Meles the TPLF felon, delusional, worst evil and wired up by ignorant communist ideology left us with miserable and disastrous humans right, developments, economic and land ownership policy.

He left a mountain high of lies after lies. Very poor in economy and governance.

TPLF bandit only knows how to steal, destroy a well built, protected and harmonious country.

The only good thing is that he is dead and his TPLF gangs are weak and in disarray now wrangling over money and EFFORT.

Mr Stern
It seems you transcribed it form Ethiopian television; Meles’s group propaganda machine through which He is still ‘ruling’ Ethiopia from his tomb.

Yes, he’s irreplaceable. What he did for his country and Africa is remarkable. Most of us just do talk the talk for our country but do not walk the walk.

The only thing Meles Zenawi has left behind is division, ethnic tension, corruption, nepotism/cronyism, favoritism, looting and that he was above the law, only he himself was the supreme law of the land who can make and break laws. What “law” am I talkin about? There’s no law to speak of - the man run the country for the last 20 years by decree. Let me cite a good example of the fact that Meles Zenawi was in to the habit of sticking his nose in the judiciary. When Siye Abraha was released on bail by By judge Birtukan Mideksa, Meles unleashed his horsemen to put Siye back in the slammer. This is what I remember of Meles Zenawi. You don’t wanna cross him but if you do, he can send you to “Alamata” to your demise. (Artist Eyasu Berhe) does that ring a bell? There is a reason for his untimely departure and please guys, spare us from this crap. We have gotten over with this nightmare and stop rewinding this atrocious man in our memory.

Your article doesnt ve a sense. 2-3 line. Insult. Weather. You insult meles or praise him. Doesnt make difference. Meles was a man who as young person choose to face death than chasing comfort. He was a man tasted with fire. And he died for his cause. The most important thing is live and die for your cause. I dont support eveything meles stand for. But i admire his principle, and strength. Meles achieved in death than alive. Other leader would look at envy. So weather you call him midgit. Or anything. Shows how your mind is empty. Full of emptiness that shows you cant even write one argument aganist.

How an ugly mentality and trash humanity !??
Look at you with corrupt morality, spitting hate
- infected and sickening words. You shamlwss and self-centered complete ignoranr, if your eyes and stinking brain were not blinded by blind hate and complete ignorance, you definitely woud have some courage to witness what is being witnesed, not just by the morally and ethically beautiful Ethiopian but literally by the whole world. Shame on you and the likes.

This is the exact character, vision and intelligence of the man. You cannot kill someone’s vision and intelligence. His ideas will hold for many centuries and he will shine forever for thinking good for humanity.Only those who are unreasonably hateful do not see his brilliance and good will for man- kind.
May God rest him in peace.

His idea will hold so long as Ethiopia remains an ethnic based country and democracy never takes root. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY HE WILL HAVE LEGACY.

Otherwise he will be a the very bottom in the annals of the history of the great country of ETHIOPIA where he belongs.

Let us not also forget he was a collaborator with sworn enemies of Ethiopia, EPLF and Issais. And it is he who split Ethiopia and introduced ethic federalism.

PM Meles was very extraordinarily intelligent person. He was a brave man who started to build Res Dam defeating Egypt threat, building thousands health center across the country, thousand primary schools all over Ethiopia, thousand miles of new road e.x.t—— . I just like to say to these people who do not honor him “you eyes and brains are covered with ethnic hate. You do not like him just because he does not belong to your ethnic group. However, his unick personal capability has already written in history book. The whole world will remember him for many centuries to come. May God bless his soul and my beloved country Ethiopia
