Ethiopia: Regarding the drama due to the death of the tyrant

By Yilma Bekele

I am hoping this is the last discussion about our emotional response regarding the disappearance then death of Ato Meles Zenawi. As controversial and in your face individual he was alive his death has brought drama, division and ugliness to our life. The person is refusing to go away in silence and dignity. I am very much conflicted about his going away. First and foremost I want to make it clear that I am definitely not sad at all. It is not because I am inhuman or lack empathy. Far from that, I consider myself caring and always concerned about others.

When it comes to Meles Zenawi my blood turns ice cold. It is not because of any of his physical traits but rather it is all about his record as the Prime Minter of my motherland. How he used his office and the power it comes with it is how I judge the individual. By all accounts he was not a pleasant human being and for over twenty years he rode rough on our poor nation and seemed to enjoy the wanton destruction he visited on his people. When I think of him what I visualize in my head are memories that bring negativity, sadness and rage.

I remember his constant put down of anyone that dares to ask a question not to his liking, the display of that stupid smirk on his face knowing the individual dare not confront him or else. I will not forget his cold blooded response after murdering over two hundred fellow citizens because they marched in peace because he cheated. His non-challant response to a reporter regarding the health of Judge Bertukan Mideksa whom he threw in jail for no reason by joking she is fine except she might have gained a few kilos and the display of that same smirk on his face is etched in my brain forever. Meles Zenawi was a despicable human being, a mad person that should not be trusted with authority over a family let alone a nation.

The current cry fest sponsored by his fellow criminals even after his demise is what worries me. In Ethiopia they are using the power they accumulated the last twenty years to assert their authority. The citizen is at the mercy of the TPLF mafia. Land belongs to the government, the regime is the number one employer in the country and such essential items as flour, sugar, oil and others are regulated by the dreaded kebeles. The average Ethiopian is a prisoner in his own land. There should be no surprise if they cry when told, march when ordered and ask how high when instructed to jump. It is sad but true. The fact they are obeying the instructions of the TPLF cadres does not mean they agree or are convinced. No deep inside they are laughing and bidding for time. Our people are not stupid nor cowards but they are not into suicide either. They are like mount Zukala volcano, dormant but not extinct.

The Ethiopians in the Diaspora are a different matter. There are those from the regime’s ethnic group that will support the regime due to commonality of interest. Most have vested interest in the survival of the TPLF regime. Then there are those that have used their dollar power to buy stolen land, stolen property and are intricately connected to the ruling party. They are the ones that are easily coopted or blackmailed into obedience. A vast majority have their head in the sand and refuse to hear or see no evil. They wait for the most opportune time to see who will come ahead and join the parade. They are sometimes called the silent majority. Unfortunately their silence works against themselves and the loved ones they left behind.

It is the combination of the TPLF party sympathizers and their puppies they keep on a leash that are making noise regarding holding a cry fest in the Diaspora community. A few of them rent a hall or a community center get their video or picture taken to be beamed by Woyane media at home. The purpose is to show the Ethiopian people that their power and hold extends in the Diaspora community. It is another form of bullying. We saw that during their campaign to raise money in the so called dam on Abbay river. In the Ponzi scheme meeting held in our city over ninety five percent of the participants were from the ruling ethnic group. The cry fest is the same crap in a different guise.
The problem for us is this drama they concoct takes us away from the job at hand. It is vintage Woyane tactic to send us on a wild goose chase while they do their homework. If you notice they took a month to declare the tyrant dead. They used the month to call meetings of their party, the Kebeles and underlings to prepare the ground for country wide mourning. We used that time to speculate whether he is dead or alive, what hospital he is in, where his wife is spotted and discuss the many ramblings of Sebhat Nega. It was a useless digression.

We are at it again. The discussion is on the drama beamed by Woyane TV regarding who has been taken prisoner and made to cry or swear allegiance. We get worked over when we see Haile sobbing, Neway bending some other idiot in designer black silk cloth taken hostage and putting a show. We are programed to follow.

While we are wasting valuable time and energy on side issues Woyane’s are working in the background to shore up support and hold the structure from falling. Speculation is rife with Obama calling Hailemariam, Azeb snubbing Hailemariam, Sebhat under house arrest, Samora dying and Seyoum weak. I still have not seen any of our so called opposition calling for a country wide discussion where we should be heading and some kind of list of points we should be thinking about. Leadership is all about putting your preferences, your thoughts and your plans so the citizen can mull over the possibilities and make an informed decision. Always pointing out Woyane’s atrocities, wrong doings and Woyane’s plans is not a winning strategy.

The question facing our Woyane warriors is what comes next Monday. The drama is done and over and poor Meles is six foot under, what comes next. We just can’t continue with no one in charge. For the last two months Ethiopia and Somalia have been the only two countries operating without a known leadership in charge. We are on what is known as auto pilot. I don’t know if this is good and healthy. One thing is for sure it has not been tried before. In most previous situation the void is normally filled by regional warlords. Are we reverting to that?
Right now the foreign reserve has been depleted; commerce has been on hold for over a month and the two weeks mourning period has brought the poor economy to standstill. The noveau capitalists have been either hording dollars or transferring it outside the country.

How does the new regime afford buying fuel, buying wheat and oil and still pay all the millions borrowed by Meles? What happens to all the contracts signed by Meles selling different parts of the country? Do the new Kilil heads accept the one sided agreements dictated by the then strong TPLF or demand a new form of contract? Are the American and European enablers willing to allow more borrowing from IMF and World bank for a regime that does not show promise of staying stable? What kind of demands are they going to present now knowing they have a weak and divided central authority? Last time their solution caused us agony for twenty years are they going to screw us again?

Issues like this is what we should be discussing about instead of inner fighting and speculation regarding the health of dying Woyanes. We seem to fall into a trap set by the mafia group and waste time and money. We need to grow up and stick to issues that will help our country and people and mind our own business instead of being led astray by others that have their selfish needs.

It is time we bury Meles and his toxic ideas and move forward. It is time we decide the agenda instead of following one drawn by TPLF. It is time we completely ignore Woyane drama do what we got to do to define our issues and stick with the plan. My wish, my plan is that I do not mention you know who for ever and ever and completely wipe his face and memory from my brain. No need to dwell on a history that is only twenty years old while my country has over three thousand years of glory. He was a stain but a very tiny and insignificant one.

Though we are sympatric people, especially during time of sorrow, this time ERPDF has outdone themselves! This melodrama of facade must end. I can’t wait till they bury the empty coffin and call it a day. Have you notice there is no single foreign journalist that can attest to the so called ‘heart-felt’ expression of sympathy.

Djz12: Yilma and his brother Debtera (Paltalk) seems to be addicted with something because they do not sound normal. They are ignored by their Gurage ethnic group even if they tried a lot to attract their attention.

Hey crazy Yilima Bekele, whether you write 5 pages or 10 pages no one will read it anyway. So you spend your days and nights writing non sense? I really feel sorry for you? What a west of time. The surprising thing is 80 million Ethiopians don’t even know you exist. The fresh minded new generation who is free of the Haileselassie Zemen Zeregnet and Timkihit and Mengistu’s Zemen brutality, will take over and implement what they learn from Meles’s Zemen, which is hard work and development. You and Elias Kifle will live your miserable lives and end up in a Psychiatry hospital here in US. Finally you guys will take your rotten & rusted mind to your grave. YOU WILL BE FORGOTEN. End of story.

I rather prefer to contemplate rather than love to comment.

Dear yilma! It is always difficult to be head of State for countries as diverse as Ethiopia.
In the face of all type of the difference we inherit, he has brought all togther to fight hunger, to set right economic policies on Economic field, including infrastructure development not since for over 50 years.This has to cost us some what on our freedom so that every one would think his move economically.Notwithsanding his contribution for the conscence of nations and nationalities, although it was not managed properly to ensure cohessiveness among all ethiopian.
It was religious meddling of the current gov that spoils his name as nostaligic memory for the Ethiopian Muslims, at the end of his life in support for alien belief to be introduced to Islam
I, any how, pray his soul to rest in peace.

The people are expressing thier feelings and I see no wrong doing in that. The most painful part is when you portray ethiopians mourning as stupid. You can contine to sit in the doldrums and you are intitled to your decision. Your hate is palpable, you look to be using it as a protection to your sick ego, because ethiopians are outpouring thier greif.
i am not saying that everything is perfect in Ethiopia, and sincerely believe there is a room for improvment. Hopefully the new leaders will see in to that. For now i should leave you alone to attend to your abnormal response to a normal situation.

Dictators never transfer power peacefully. They are either ousted by mass revolt or they expire while clinging to the throne. In Derg time people were forced to chant some communist songs, now people are told to cry. Hope both doesn’t happen to me but if I had to choose, I think I will go with chanting. Ethiopia’s government is evolving into a new form of communism, where all media is controlled by the state, the people are harassed by the military, eavesdroppers are everywhere, main commodity market (sugar, oil, fertilizer, seeds etc…) is centralized, and the private sector is run by those who have connection with the ruling communist party. Of course they do not confess that they are communists and their name doesn’t look like one either. But their actions make it clear that they are no way near to a free democratic nation. For instance: they control all the parliament seats except one; having an opinion that is different from the Woyane communists will automatically lead to harassment, discrimination and or jailing. The people of Ethiopia are now subject to a 24-7 false propaganda, intimidation, humiliation and abuse. They are deprived of their God given rights by the Woyane communist. I can only hope things will ease up in the future. By the way I was not sad by the death of the savage either.

What can you do? Meles is honored by the whole world. he attended great world leaders meeting neither for the size of Ethiopia nor the number of the population. But for the size of his intellect.
You did not even clean up your ass yet. Now we know how stinky you are. Now they know who you are.

Yilma is alive but a dead man or women who think s(he) is far best to Ethiopia and Ethiopian, but s(he) did nothing than his or her vague irrational statements. Melese vision stands forever. Yilma may say the idea of melese dead forever. No shame on him or her to say that and continue fabricating statements that without leg and tails. For him the big respect paid to Melese by the Ethiopian people was drama. It was a fake or the people were giving such respect by the coercion. He may continue to say and classify the people mourning as they were not ‘true Ethiopia’ as many of his or her colleague foolish statements. The dead Melese Ideas continues to prosper even no one post or make available for readers. They have already printed in the blood life of millions of Ethiopians.

Every single leader in Ethiopian history has done better than the previous for the “Ethiopian” people…..Mengstu came and abolished feudalism and gave the peasants the land they deserve…..Meles came and gave them a glimpse of democracy, we can keep arguing on the effectiveness and frequent repressions, but Ethiopians never had such level of freedom in their History……so we have to praise him………..

But these all is for the Ethiopian people, but when it came to “Eritrean” people…..they kept on doing bad and unfair things, Hile Selassie illegally annexed it, Mengstu brutally repressed them and Meles ? Well, history will tell what he did, as of now we cant say anything…..

If the good people of Ethiopia will one day know the brutality of the Ethiopian leaders towards the Eritrean people, then they will truly feel sorry and sympathize with their northern neighbors…..

RIP Meles Zenawi

Ato Yilma Bekele,
Although not a die-hard supporter of the government, I give due credit to what the Prime Minister achieved during his life time. Unlike most of us who talk day long with no substance, he talked the talk and walked the walk. He lived among his poor people and did his best to dismantle the inequality imposed by the elite group on the Ethiopian Nationalities. He lead the country to bring out of poverty and I’m sure all the ongoing projects will help aleviate the problem in the country.
Last week, ESAT, Ethiopian Review, and others informed us that Sheik Mohammed Al Amoudin is dead only to see him on TV screen alive and healthy two days later. Now, you are telling us some of the names you mentioned above are on the cliff of death. How sure are you?
For the better future of our country and people, we must stop this crazy non-sense zero sum political bickering and finger pointing. Moreover, please not use these ugly words against any commentators. If you don’t agree with someone’s idea, no need to abuse him/her.

Kebatari hula. Eat Susan Rice’s speech. Yilma and his friends couldn’t take the fact that people do actually love and respect Meles. Teqatlew limotu nw. They all assumed that people in Ethiopia would be celebrating Meles’ death. But the opposite happened. Now Yilma is claiming it’s a mind control by the government as if all those people were hypnotized. Get a life all you losers and die already. Meles was avenged by the people of Ethiopia in response to all the diaspora haters like Yilma Gegemaw, Elias Shelew, Ar Maria, Abebe Faraw Gelaw/Belew, Birhanu Shintamu Nega, Ethiomedia’s perpetually angry editor, etc…

Nazret ppl, I have one comment for you. I just visited your website after reading the title “Regarding the drama due to the death of the tyrant.”
When I clicked at the link, I found the article to be too much for me to read. However, like others are doing, you should have a paragraph that summarizes the main idea of the article somewhere either in the beginning or at the end your article. Thanks

Truth Hurts

Sending a low level US delegation to the dictator and tribal leader’s funeral is a blow to the Woyane remnants. Of course, there were few heads of states from Africa and the Woyane media tried as much as they can to stretch the truth by stating a general theme “World leader are here to pay tribute to the dictator”.

The fact is there was no western leader from the developed world.
Due to a regulated government radio, TV and internet provider policy in Ethiopia, the vast majority of Ethiopians are not going to be exposed to fair analysis of the dictator. For anyone watching ETV, Meles is Jesus like figure.

Portraying the dictator as Jesus is far from truth.
Due to his skilful begging technique, a profession that is not unprecedented to Tigray people, aid to Ethiopia flourished under Meles’ regime and that led to an economical development.

As Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775 said, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death”. Ethiopian would rather choose their freedom than an aid that could come with strings attached from the west or east.

I personally do not care if few individuals reflect their dislike to Meles. They have all the rights to do so. But at the same time they need to know and understand that they are the extreme minorities, with very few in their color as compared to the great majority of Meles supporters in Ethiopia. It has become a non-disputed fact that the great majority of Ethiopians, from children to senior citizens, loves and cherishes Meles and his vision for Ethiopia with passion. The people have spoken in Unisom with one voice to maintain and realize his vision for Ethiopia.
Rest assured!

Dictator’s wrong-doing is not exposed by the regulated government media which is serving the TPLF and Woyanes’ team bidding.

When the dust settles, Ethiopian will see how unpopular the dictator’s policy will be in the near future. A policy of tribal supremacy, ethnic division, oppression, anti-press, economical development on the shoulder of poor Ethiopian land owners, Jailing opposition leaders, ethno-centric, initiating a dirty war for his political expediency will be judged by Ethiopians when Meles’ divisiveness and undiplomatic behavior disseminated by free media.

For those of you insulting Yilma, you have the right to express your objections with civility. If you chose a tradition of nonsense and stupidity, that there is a tradition of idiocy blinded by tribal affiliation.

Shame on u! you have the right to show your dislike to our great leader & his praise worthy difference he made to this great nation and its people but at-least try to show some respect to the people grieving so deeply and painfully over the death of our visionary leader. You r such a low class person with no mind and heart to understand reality that u live consumed deep inside your heart with self destruction due to the toxic your organs release because of the extraordinary praise & recognition this hero enjoyed throuh out the globe. You a clueless loser with no value at all. Rubish!

Do you mean impeach x-dictator, Meles? I would agree with you if he could stand trial for his ruthless and tribal leadership but death came sooner before facing justice for the crime that he committed during (21) years of dictatorship.

You lie for decades, you spread your poison among Ethiopians for decades!. Do you know you are the son of the Satan! because Satan is the father of lies and hate!and God is the father of truth! and love. PM Meles has done a lot! for that the people of Ethiopia, heads of African states, leaders of international organization have given their witness. The people of Ethiopia stood together united and with love unlike your poison and hate.Do you think the nation is stupid? In my opinion you are the stupid!! full of dirt and poison. Dominated by others and working for others and not the people of Ethiopia. I do not accept you as Ethiopian! who knows? may be our…

They get respected the full rights and restored their equality citizenship under EPRDF and Melzse leadership.
As the Somali kilil president said,we won’t forgetting Dear PM Melese Zenawi his legacy contributions.

Ethiopia’s ‘Visionary’ Leader Meles Zenawi Laid to Rest

A funeral procession transporting the coffin of Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi is pictured in Addis Ababa, September 2, 2012.

Former US Ambassador Describes Meles Legacy as ‘Mixed Bag’

ADDIS ABABA — Ethiopia has laid to rest Prime Minister Meles Zenawi who led the country for more than 20 years before his death, announced last month. Heads of state from around the continent praised Meles’ intellect and his vision for his country and Africa.

Ethiopian soldiers stood in formation as the flag-draped casket carrying the body of Meles was carried into Meskel Square in downtown Addis Ababa.

Thousands of Ethiopians gathered to pay their respects to the late prime minister, who was credited with bringing economic development to the country during his many years in power. Foreign dignitaries, including heads of state from across Africa also attended the ceremony.

Former South African President Thabo Mbeki praised Meles for his commitment to his country and the continent.

“We too, your fellow Africans, are here to join you to pay tribute to Meles Zenawi and to convey to you our sincere condolences of the loss to you of a great architect of a new Ethiopia, and to us who come from outside the borders of this country, the loss of a great architect of a new Africa of which a billion Africans dream,” said Mbeki.

While many African leaders credited Meles for his single-minded dedication to development, he was often criticized in the West for stifling the opposition and putting economic success ahead of human rights.

Rwandan President Paul Kagame said the prime minister was misunderstood by critics because he was ahead of his time.

“Where some would have been compromised for short-term profit or gains, or easily succumbed to pressures, he was steadfast and always took a definite stand on issues of right and wrong and more often than not, he was on the side of right,” he said.

A woman wails while lifting a portrait of Ethiopia’s PM Meles Zenawi as she waits for the arrival of his remains in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa, August 21, 2012.
​​​​The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said she enjoyed a close relationship with Meles. Rice praised him for what she called his “world-class mind,” but said they sometimes “profoundly disagreed” on issues including human rights and foreign policy.

She said as the United States will continue to work with Ethiopia to help develop the country’s institutions.

“As always, we will encourage peaceful political dialogue, civil society development and protection of human rights, including freedom of the press,” said Rice.

Meles’ deputy, Hailemariam Desalegn has taken over the powers of the prime minister’s office and is due to be sworn in after the funeral. He says he plans to continue on the path of development started by his predecessor.

“Today we are prospering because of the vision and guidance of Meles Zenawi,” he said. “He paved the road for prosperity and peace that we are committed to follow.”

After the ceremony, Meles’ casket was carried to the Holy Trinity Cathedral, where he was buried next to other prominent leaders of Ethiopia, including former Emperor Haile Selassie.

A 21-gun salute marked the end of the ceremony, and a long and transformative political era in Ethiopia.

Thanks for sharing your thought.

I was reading your paper and i was wondering - your paper seems been written just because you think you need to write something, i think we should better write articles to participate and share our though to contribute positive thought about what we belive, other wise it is just a waste of time for yourself and for those who try to understand you.
You mention on your article that ‘I consider myself caring and always concerned about others.’ are you realy think about the poor people of Ethiopia? are you realy think about the next generation and about our kids? are you realy trying to see the better ethiopia out of the paper you publish?I bet you are not - unless we stop complaing about everything just to get a bit attention of others while you did not realize your negetive effect which you contribute for those who think they understand you well or they did not realized they are mislead by writing such useless articles which is not based on facts and not based out of good will from your heart.

Ethiopia will prosper and the caountry has golden future ahead and i see you can write and you can contribute positively for you nation to be more productive and unite.
God may bless you.

Those of us even in the previous opposition who knew Meles had to appricciate his visionary and sharp responses to issues raised. No matter how much we disliked his ideas, we had to acknowledge his farsightedness. He was intelligent student who scored the highest grades all the way from his 1st class until he held the TPLF leadership. This is a naked fact weather we like him or not.

So for wild animal minded street-boys like Yilma Bekele who has alkohol infested brain only blind hatred of his instincts sound aloud; no matter the reality. This hooligan type rude guy’s heart is dark like charcoal; His minded is blended with negatively inclined devilish ideas. As a rude street-boy born of a prostitute he has no single human mind nor can he think rational. He is always at the paid service of the defamed Elias Kifle Alemayehu Haile Mariam of Eritrean AKA Ethiopian Review. Well he is to face death too one of these days, But who will cry for him except for Elias Kifle?

This is the ongoing battle among the TPLF juntas,Its all about to show each others that ,as they have a public support.It shows how low graded they are?They are unable to win the public heart and support, therefore have used the dictator death as an opportunity to come to power.

This are the people that never truth comes out of their mouth.they tried to hide reality in every occasion and in any stage they stood on.

However the reality couldn’t no more buried any more so,it’s erupted like volcano and exposed it like larva.The reality burning you ,trying to hide truth with Hollywood ,like entertainment show of funeral procedures.

Meles has accomplished what the west wanted for Africa, that’s what SUSAN RICE trying to praise him(killer).you western countries you do not know what is good for us,stop meddling in our affair.

This hypocrite policy of west,in one country in the name human right accuse one government.In other hand supporting another dictator just because of helping their dirty policy.

Dear my fellow Ethiopians ,should we wait the western countries specially USA AND BRITAN to bring what the majority of Ethiopian people need?do not be mistaken this are the same evil people but ,with diffrent outfit ,who lead woyane to come on to this post to repress, torture , kill and loot the countrys wealth.this people determined to destroy our country by putting this thugs to suit their interest. identical trick used while the peace confrence held in London 21 years ago ,allowing this Mafia group to march in to our his dead or alive now or waiting untill his reserection ,we should know that the western evil governments picking and choosing who to be his succesor.In fact that woyane is blackmailing the West by strengthen its relation with China.The western country do not want what the Ethiopian people suit them.they want who can keep their interest.
This the war on teror hypocrite policy of the best method used to invade soverign countries and to steal natural wealth and to gain geo poletical strategy to their dirty policy.other than that there is no terorism exist to fight for it.because ,they fight aginst it in one country and support it in another country . And how do we justfy it?

George bush said” it will take 50 years to irradicate it.”

during somalia Ethiopia Ethiopia’s war with Somalia in 1968-1970

ZBIGINEW BAZEZINISKI at the time US national Adviser said

“the soviet union was getting strategic edge and out stripts on economic”

after the death thousands and destuction this the very same evil person

The horn of Africa is not as important as itself to America.but it was important how the Soviet was interpreted and to test their measure."they just using as boxing gloves.

We should know and aware this evils and stop them from mediating our opposition parties should have learn from the past mistake ,and inorder to gain power please do not seek their support otherwise you will put aside what you aim and planed for your people and contiue to serve the western devils deed.

In a era of universal deceipt, telling the truth is a revolutionary act !!

The day has come ,be faithful and pray Allah/God.

Allah/God protect our country.

Many blames for meless arrogance towards Ethiopia and Ethiopians. But most of tigrians share the same arrogance. Some times i wonder to ask them What Ethiopia means. Many we have a complet difference of understanding of Ethiopia. For none tigrians Ethiopia means a country where all its ethnic shares equal opportunity in the country. Has all ethnic experienced this opportunity under tplf’s meless? Even asking this kind of trivial question has triggered killing, murder, prison, or labled as terrorists or dergist? So my question to tigrians: On which ethnic group the wealth and the development witnessed? Who was hungery in derg time? And who are hungery now? How many people sleep on the street during derg time? And now? If olf gets help from issayas, tplf kill ofl people. Can oromo people call this ethnic clenzing? Derg killed tplf people because tplf and isayas were killing Ethiopians. So in short what ever tigre does is correct and the rest is wrong? 21 years ago you wouldnt understand this becuase tirians were blinded by isayas love. But now open your eyes.

Dear Yilma,

Just by reading the comments you can understand why our country is one of the poorest on earth. We can’t even discuss in a “civilized” manner.
Your analyses of the currant situation are very acurate. We have been talking of Meles’ health and now of his death for over two months. And most of us don’t even realized that we have been manipulated by the propaganda machine of EPDRF.
As you said, now that the funeral is over, it is time to face reality.
-We know very well that there is a power struggle among the ruling party, in few months we will see how many members will survive.
-With all the economical problems, we should expect a crisis.
-The mass hysteria will be over and the Ethiopian population will be left with the same problems.
-As for the opposition we have to be more proactive. We don’t have the money that EPDRF has, but we have the intelligence, the honesty, the goodwill…

All that you damp on this website are trash. Can you read the comments posted above? I know that you are paid to lie. You write lies because you have no brain to find and write the truth. Of course you have few supporters such as C’est moi devil. Why don’t you read brains of DSW and others posted here?

Meles is great but the brain of Yilma Bakela does not comprehend. God bless federal Ethiopia and the soul of Meles.

You are wrong ! PM died and rest in peace with dignity and glory . The burial ceremony is a witness for that .One thing that oppositions has to understand is Meles gone but he has cultivated thousands like him capable to lead the country to complete the Renaissance and transformation he started .

To All, when is going to end your ignorance and come to a civil desiccations once for all. Your sense of writing or responding is not better than thug on the street his legacy will never stop. Look who is crying on the street of Ethiopia not you, but the people who love him and saw his visions and dream. What have you done for your country besides opening your mouth? Let alone for your family. Long live Ethiopian dream and vision by Ethiopian may god help his vision to come real.

Shut up and get lost

Lier Yilma,
I am 100 percent sure the cause of your long misguided, full of lie,skewed,out of touch and generally hateful analysis comes out of your raceiest background. I know in public you won’t accept it as it is politically incorrect but deep down in you, you are a raceiest and narrow minded. You might think because you can write pages of trash, you are an intellect but the way many people understand it is as out of reality and not in sink reality analysis so, please do not write some thing which is a lie and a trash. Just do some thing, shut up and do productive thing for your self. I know for sure you do not have better thing to do. Again shut up and get lost.
Please be truthful and do not influenced by your hate and dream.

Innocent brothers and sisters
Innocent mothers and fathers
Marching the street of addis
They were opposing falsified 97 election results
But, the regime did not waste any time
They were answered with live bullets
To those who defend with bare hands
As a result,more than 200 innocents were killed
And the remaining were hunted and picked
They sent them to jail and suffered
But the parents cried to God for answers not from the regime
After 7 years later, their cry,sadness and sorrow were answered
It reminded us how the loss of the family member made to those closer sad
We saw how Azeb felt during mourning
I think, she can understand now
How the parents of those innocent killed by the regime felt
She can understand now their sorrow and sadness
I hope and believe, the rest should learn from their leader mistake
And work together for common goal
Unite the country and rule
Not divide and rule like Zenawi
The price of sin is death
But the price of the sin of sin
Was suffered,and suffered and death like Zenawi
Clever learn from other mistakes
I hope he will get up there what he deserves
And answers questions from those innocents he perished in Addis

I don’t think you understand how God operates. God is not in the buisness of killing people. Don’t be ignorant. Just take a little time and read about resources you want to quote. Otherwise you use God’s name in vain and you will be judged.
Instead God said in the Bible love your enemies. Instad doing what God told you to do you are making mistakes and sins. Learn to love even those who did you wrong

“If someone pretends to sleep, you cannot week him up". The whole world is saying about Meles building his country in many ways. Almost all African leaders are saying Africa missed one of her best man. They are not looking the good work or care about the outcry of 80,000,000 people. They are not acting like Ethiopian, they look themselves special people. Telling the truth and oppose the mistakes of TPLF if any and expose to the people. They are looking their special man. Who is that special man? This group members are working to make the existing party give up and to prepare the king bed for many years for them. It is clear that they are not looking for the future Ethiopia to be multi-party country. If they do believe Ethiopia must be multi-party country, they will accept and work with TPLF and make Ethiopia a fertile place for the newest parties to be born. It is to control the future.
