Meles Zenawi Asres (Ge'ez: መለስ ዜናዊ አስረስ Mäläs Zenawi Äsräs; born 8 May 1955) has been the Prime Minister of Ethiopia since 1995. He was President of Ethiopia from 1991 to 1995. Since 1985, he has been chairman of the Tigrayan Peoples' Liberation Front (TPLF), and he is head of the ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF).
Can't help but think EPRDF will make a turn around on PM Meles Zenawi's legacy like China's CPC on Mao sayin 70% good & 30% bad. I expect it

The two TPLF factions are appearing to be close to resolving their differences and turning their attention to getting back the prime minister’s position from their puppet, Hailemariam Desalegn, according to Ethiopian Review sources. The Sibhat Nega faction reportedly has the upper hand, and Abay Woldu and friends have chosen to retreat instead of getting crushed. TPLF insiders have informed Ethiopian Review sources that Tewodros Hagos has emerged as a consensus choice to lead the party and become the next prime minister, but Sibhat Nega’s camp is still campaigning to put Teodros Adhanom in the PM’s office. And Hailemariam is done. He is to be disposed of before the 2015 fake elections get underway, our sources said. It’s been over a year since Hailemariam became the prime minister in Ethiopia, taking over from the khat-addicted former dictator Meles Zenawi who died in July 2012. Under the Woyanne constitution, the prime minister in Ethiopia has dictatorial powers. Meles Zenawi and his wife used th ...
Upon completion of his studies and researches in the late 1970s, he started working for NASA as a system engineer and space research scientist. He collaborated with other scientists on the space shuttle and other rocketry projects. he was Ethiopia's first aerospace scientist. The only Ethiopian in the field, he also worked for Rockwell International and Boeing. Apart from his work as an aerospace scientist, he was also known for his efforts to bring about political change in Ethiopia. He publicly denounced the regime in Ethiopia and its actions and policies. Even though he was ambitious about using his knowledge, experience and high-status to help his homeland Ethiopia, he repeatedly said he was not made welcome by the regime. In 2002, he founded a political party, the Ethiopian National United Front, to help overthrow Meles Zenawi's regime. he died at the age of 58 on 13 January 2006 in the United States; prior to his death, he was planning to work with the founder of Africa Needs Community Development . ...

Meles’ selected speech: completing the story September 3, 2013 by Hindessa Abdul It has been a year since long time Ethiopian ruler Meles Zenawi died of unestablished causes in a Belgian hospital somewhere between June and August of 2012. The Government hasn’t come out clearly about the cause of his death. During the last several weeks the state run media were preoccupied portraying a person akin to a saint. The praises showered upon him were more than needed to canonize him. 21-gun salute was fired; millions of trees planted; fellow leaders of neighbouring countries were at hand to give pomp to the event; scores of parks renamed after him, and the list goes on and on.ETV even took a page from North Korean manual on cult of personality. University professors, army generals, cabinet members, and party operatives were paraded to give testimony about the deeds of his excellency. They said he was an intellectual, a military strategist, a farmers’s best friend, and man of the people. ETV even took a page ...

Open letter to PM Meles Zenawi From Eskinder Nega | March 4, 2011 To: PM Meles Zenawi, Addis Ababa From: Eskinder Nega Subject: Message from the people Dear Ato Meles Zenawi, . . . . . Here is the gist of this letter, the real message from the grassroots: a nation outraged by high soaring inflation; a public scandalized by unprecedented corruption, rampant unemployment, political oppression, chronic shortage of land in rural areas. In sum, the nation is desperate for change. You have essentially wasted the two decades with which you were blessed to affect change. In place of pragmatism dogma has prevailed; in place of transparency secrecy has taken root; in place of democracy oppression has intensified; and in place of merit patronage has been rewarded. Ato Meles Zenawi: the people want -- no, need -- you to leave office. The people are closely watching events in North Africa as I write this letter. They are debating the implications for Africa, including Ethiopia. And they have been inspired by the heroi ...
I miss.the dynamic & lovely answer of p.m meles zenawi.
Why did Arkebe Equbay defect to the United States? In what is a clear sign of infighting within the TPLF regime, Arkebe Equbay, a senior Ethiopian official, defected to the United States and is currently residing in the Denver area, a source familiar with the situation informed Durame by phone. Arkebe, who was on a visit to the United States, reportedly claimed asylum after an unnamed informant working with the secretive Ethiopian National Intelligence and Security Service tipped him off that he would be incarcerated upon his return to Ethiopia. This defection is a colossal blow to the regime, which at one point, regarded Arkebe as the heir apparent to the late Ethiopian dictator, Meles Zenawi. In 2008, senior officials of the ruling party voted for Arkebe to lead the politburo. Arkebe, however, declined to take the leadership position out of fear of upsetting Meles, who had held the chairmanship since 1991. Sources in Addis have said Debretsion Gebremichael, the current Deupty Prime Minister and a former ...

Ethiopian PM names new ministers Ethiopia expects 11% growth rate Addis Ababa - Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn appointed 10 new ministers on Thursday in his second cabinet reshuffle since taking office last year, including a new head of customs whose predecessor was arrested on corruption charges in May. Hailemariam, 47, became prime minister in September after the death of long-serving leader Meles Zenawi, one of Africa's most influential political figures who ruled Ethiopia for 21 years and steered its economy into double-figure growth. So far Hailemariam has shown no sign of a major shift in policy away from Zenawi, maintaining his predecessor's focusing on business and the economy. Ethiopia wants to boost its manufacturing sector and has been wooing Asian economic powerhouses China and South Korea. It has carved out large plots of land for construction of industrial centres. In parliament, Hailemariam announced Beker Shale as director general of Ethiopia's revenue and customs authority ...

Meles Zenawi Asres (Ge’ez: መለስ ዜናዊ አስረስ Mäläs Zenawi Äsräs) died in office as the Prime Minister of Ethiopia on August 20, 2012 after a long health battle. He was born as Legesse Zenawi Asres. He changed his first name from Legesse to Meles (nom de guerre Meles, which he later adopted in honour of a university student and fellow Tigrai Meles Tekle who was executed by Mengistu’s government in 1975) while fighting the Russian supported Derg military government. Meles Zenawi was born in the town of Adwa, Tigrai, in northern Ethiopia, to an Ethiopian father from Adwa and a mother from Adi Quala, Eritrea. He completed from grade 1 to grade 8 in just 5 years. He was awarded a scholarship to complete his high school studies in Addis Ababa (Ethiopian capital) at the General Wingate High school. Up on successfully completing his high school in great distinction, he studied medicine at Addis Ababa University medical faculty (at the time known as Haile Selassie I University) for two years ...
If we have to go by today's reporting by Reporter, the Amharic bi-weekly, the next administration of Addis Abeba will led by Diriba Kuma as a mayor with a deputy prime ministerial portfolio. Azeb Mesfin, wife of the late Meles Zenawi, Mekuria Haile, minister of Urban Development & Construction, and Diriba Kuma, minister of Agriculture, will be deputy mayors. Challenges lay ahead for the EPRDF, however. On the one hand, losing experienced hands from the federal government structure will create problems. On the other, deviating from the established culture of having one mayor, without justifiable political reason, will be a question to the integrity of the Party. Hence, I doubt the reports.

The late tyrant Meles Zenawi left behind a series of time bombs ready to explode and destabilize the region to the utter disadvantage of Ethiopia which has no credible ally except the almighty God and her people as I always say. The decision by the communist TPLF warlords and their puppet Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn to implement the legacy intact is solid proof that draconian problems are waiting to be overcome. All the incendiaries are in place to ignite and unleash havoc to regional stability, inter alia: gross violations of human rights of citizens contrary to UN Declaration on Human Rights and the TPLF constitution; divisive ethnic policy; balkanization into nine ethnic-based federal states; Endemic corruption perpetrated by top TPLF warlords still untouched; give-away of fertile Ethiopian land (Emperor Theodros II has graphically illustrated that a spec of our fertile soil is vital to our national security); the Renaissance Dam: extensive and in-depth cost-benefit analysis including national ...

IN 2010 Ethiopia aims to turn itself into a regional energy giant , Jun 15, 2010 09:00 EDT (2 years ago) on World news : Africa roundup | guardian.co.uk (Original Article) The Gibe 3 dam on the Omo river will be Africa's largest, providing power to a nation with one of the world's lowest per capita levels of access to electricity. NGOs warn environmental disaster Ethiopia's government has set itself an ambitious target: in just a few years it aims to take an undeveloped country, with one of the world's lowest levels of per capita access to electricity, and turn it into a regional powerhouse, exporting energy to its neighbours. To achieve this the prime minister, Meles Zenawi, is advocating a spending spree to develop Ethiopia. Various foreign non-governmental organisations have questioned the reliability of official impact studies, but with a de facto one-party state, controlled by the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front, there is little risk of serious opposition. Ethiopia is pinning i ...
Mind you this is not a report from diaspora opposition media who probably would make false reports because of their vested interest. This is a report from an independent organization called therichest.com . The website even showers Meles with praises, among others, "He was one of the most recent literate and forward thinking leaders of Africa." The site obviously has no animosity towards Meles Zenawi but simply is stating the true wealth of Meles. 3 billion dollars is above 55 billion Birr. That is above the national economy of our county. You could cover the entire streets of Ethiopia with this whole lot money. You could probably eradicate hunger from Ethiopia with that money. The new exposé makes Meles Zenawi the richest leader in Africa and among the top 3 leaders in the world. Congratulations to Woyannes! That is a great achievement by our late "great and visionary" leader. Meles sets a great example to all of us on how to make 3 billion dollars out of "a monthly salary of just 4 thousand birr."!
Ethiopia Has Arisen! By Alemayehu G Mariam June 3, 2013 Prof. Al Mariam Tens of thousands of protesters on June 2, 2013 at Ethio-Cuban Square in Addis Ababa (Photo: Courtesy of Bitanya Alemayehu) On Ginbot 20, 1983 (Ethiopian calendar; [5/28/1991]), Meles Zenawi and thousands of his guerilla fighters marched into Addis Ababa toting AK-47s, RPGs and hand grenades. They marched into the capital promising democracy, freedom and liberation from a brutal military dictatorship. The people of the capital welcomed them with some anxiety; but they were greatly relieved to see a regime that had brutalized them for 17 years finally consigned to the dustbin of history. On Ginbot 25, 2005 (Ethiopian calendar; [6/1/2013]), over one hundred thousand young men and women marched in the streets of Addis Ababa demanding the release of political prisoners, religious freedom, respect for human rights and the Constitution and public accountability. They demanded action on youth unemployment, inflation and corruption. They marc ...
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (WIC) - Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn said on Tuesday the Ethiopian Youths Sports Academy would enable sports persons to be supported by scientific and professional trainings and register better victories. The Premier made the remark while inaugurating the Ethiopian Youths Sports Academy built on 24 hectares of land at a cost of 290 million birr in Gerji area of Addis Ababa. Hailemariam said beyond the political and economic achievements gained on May 28 Victory, the academy would have a significant role in bringing aspired results in sports. The government would do its best to build such academies in the future, he added. Sports Commissioner Abdissa Yadeta for his part said the construction of the Academy was started in 2007 with the initiative from the late visionary leader Meles Zenawi. He expressed his belief that the Academy which is the first of its kind in the nation would have immense contribution to the growth of sports. Two months later, the Academy is expected to adm ...
Shame on u Elias.very stupid letter to Egyptians. "A message to Egyptians from an Ethiopian Elias Kifle | May 31st, 2013 I understand your concern over the construction of dam on the Nile river in Ethiopia. Egypt’s very survival depends on the uninterrupted flow of the Nile. Every Ethiopian understands that. The so called Renaissance Dam was launched by the late dictator Meles Zenawi and his minority junta to divert the people’s attention from domestic problems. It is also to preempt the people’s desire for freedom and democratic governance. Before the ruling junta launched the project, it didn’t consult with the people of Ethiopia and countries like Egypt who are affected by it. I want the people of Egypt to understand that Ethiopia is ruled by an ethnic minority junta named Woyanne that does not represent the country’s best interests. Any government that represents the interest of Ethiopia would not try to dam the Nile when the country has many other underutilized rivers we can dam for electri ...
Museveni donates $300,000 to Meles Foundation President Yoweri Museveni has donated $300,000 to the ‘Meles Foundation’ which was established in honour of Ethiopia’s late Prime Minister, Meles Zenawi. The Foundation was officially launched at ceremony held at the African Union (AU) headquarters in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa on Saturday, April 5. Apart from Uganda on whose behalf Museveni made the $300,000 donation, Sudan announced it would contribute $2million, South Sudan pledged $1million and Djibouti pledged $500,000. The ‘Meles Foundation’ will serve as a memorial centre to the Ethiopian Prime Minister’s great contribution towards peace, socio-economic development and his lead role in climate change negotiations and environmental protection among others. It was disclosed at the occasion that the Foundation had elected 13 board members, including the former first lady, Azeb Mesfin, who will serve as board president and house of federation speaker Kassa Teklebrhan, who was elected vic ...
Oromia-Ethiopia: The Mystery of the Black Nile December 24, 2010 By Tuji Jidda* A lot has been said about the Abay River and the Blue Nile: patriotic poems have been composed, and beautiful songs sung in their honor; accords signed; major wars fought; and boundaries demarcated. After the recent inaugurations of the highly political Tekeze Dam in Tigray and the Tana-Beles project in Amhara region, the issue of Nile politics has resurfaced once again. Meles Zenawi is touting a renewed possibility of war and is accusing Egypt of backing anti-government rebels in Ethiopia. There is no reasonable ground for Zenawi’s allegations, and his swagger is based on inaccurate facts. This article tries to challenge the correctness of previous opinions of Abyssinian rulers regarding the Nile River. Westerners do not understand the difference between Abyssinian and non-Abyssinian Ethiopia. It was only fairly recently that it was made known that 86% of the Nile’s water originated in the Ethiopian highlands. As the sayi ...

.next Violations of the Oromo Right to Life since 1991 The present Ethiopian regime has been lauded during the last two decades by foreign observers for achievements in terms of socio-political and economic development. Its former prime minister, the late Mr. Meles Zenawi, was praised particularly by politicians from the West as a progressive leader who had promoted peace in the Horn of Africa. These views are not shared by the oppressed peoples in Ethiopia, including the Oromo. By and large, the views are contradicted by scholarly reports and facts on the ground. Reports from regional and international human rights organizations such as the Human Rights League of the Horn of Africa, genocide Watch, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch also negate the rosy picture of Ethiopia’s socio-political development drawn by pro-regime sources. The following are some of the facts which are overlooked by those who present the yearnings of the leaders of the TPLF regime as an African success story. To start ...
General Constantine Guvheya Chiwenga and his thick plotters against the President, which has managed to rope in Emmerson Mnangagwa after they turned down approaches from Jonathan Moyo's group are currently locked in a meeting with the former Ethiopian dictator and strongman Mengistu Haile Mariam at his Gunhill hideout, getting strategies and tactics of how to stage a coup. Chiwenga who all along was having secret meetings with Mengistu who is in political exile in our country after having been overthrown from power by the late Meles Zenawi used to be President Mugabe's security consultant is now working will Guvheya Chiwenga, Mnangagwa and their team to see how they can usurp power. He is the one who gave Chiwenga what the group term a "masterstroke strategy" when he told Chiwenga and his team to implement the strategy of fielding military parliamentary candidates during the forthcoming elections. Mengistu has assumed a very important and influential role to the group's plans to gain political power. He h ...
Just looking in to his merciless gaze with blank cruelty of a cannibalized warlord sends shivers down the spine of his enemies. Since his master Meles Zenawi died Federal police boss Workneh Gebeyhu has been in sullen and vituperous mood; raging against any opposition to the TPLF. The most feared and hated man in Ethiopia, never seen smiling or talking without angrily raising his fist and punching the air, TPLF warlords see him as an ideal replacement for the self-exiled gun and sex crimes maestro, Bisrat Amare of Columbus Ohio in the US. The iron lady of murky Tigre politics, former first lady Azeb Mesfin still adores Workneh for his ability to defend the TPLF hierarchy and for the role he played in protecting her late husband Meles Zenawi for more than two decades. He is dangerous, extremely unpredictable and erratic with tremendous charisma to terrorize the people. Besides the federal police, Workneh commanders various mobile death squads including the all-Tigre elite Trojan horses known as the Agazit; ...
