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 ...
Her name is ShiBire Desalegn. She is the first person to be killed when Meles Zenawi unleashed his forces following a peaceful protest by Addis Ababa University (AAU) students on June 6. She was shot and killed by EPRDF troops as she and her friends tried to block the road in Kotebe that leads to the Sendafa torture camp. She helped escape several AAU students from torture by helping them jump from the trucks that were taking them to Sendafa. She didn’t have any weapon. But that didn’t stop the EPRDF troops from shooting her to death. A high caliber bullet pierced through her neck. Because of ShiBire’s actions, some AAU students escaped torture. But because of the action and inaction of others, thousands went through unspeakable brutality in the hands of the EPRDF security forces under the direct orders of Meles Zenawi. Thirty days later, Meles Zenawi was standing next to President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair at the G8 meeting in Scotland, looking proud of his barbaric actions. Ethiopian Revi ...
A handful of Ethiopian dissidents gathered in front of the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem early Saturday morning to protest a memorial service held for Meles Zenawi. The protesters denounced the church and the United African Congress “for joining a prayer with the human rights abuser regime representatives.” Zenawi died sometime in August from undisclosed illness. The memorial was attended by Ban Ki Moon, Susan Rice, and other dignitaries (more on that later). Starting around 8a.m., as New York City Police officers stood guard, a about dozen protesters chanted, “don’t pray for a fascist, pray for his victims!” calling out everyone that entered the church as “thieves." To curious Harlemites, who stopped to inquire about what was happening, the protesters handed out a four page document listing Zenawi’s crimes against humanity [Amharas]. A partial chronological list is enclosed. *Short List of Meles Zenawi’s Crimes* - 1991: massacre of 48 students at Addis Ababa University 1992: the sec ...

In 1975, a first year student at the Haile Selassie University (now Addis Ababa University) , Legese Zenawi, just nineteen years of age, abandoned his studies and joined the Tigrean People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). Legese was studying Medicine. He never returned to complete his studies and never got to enjoy his youth like the rest of us did. In 2012, at the age of 57, Legese passed away. But he left the world as Meles Zenawi and not as Legese Zenawi, the name given to him by his parents in Adwa in the north of Ethiopia. Legese chose to change his name following the death of his friend and fellow rebel Meles in 1975. He decided to live for his comrade by taking his name. Meles was successful removing the dictatorial regime of Mengistu Haile Mariam from power and to usher in developmental leadership under the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front. Meles promised to fight on behalf of his comrade Meles for the benefit of all Ethiopians and that promise was fulfilled. Initially, Meles fough ...

He had been receiving treatment for an undisclosed illness. Government spokesman Shimeles Kemal said a new leader will come into office based on what he called “the bylaws and canons of the Coptic Church.”Abune Paulos studied at Princeton's Theological Seminary in the US after receiving a degree in theology from Addis Ababa University. He was arrested in 1974 by Ethiopia's military dictatorship. Upon his release, Abune Paulos fled to the US, where he spent several years in exile.He returned to Ethiopia in 1991 when Mengisu Hailemariam’s government collapsed and Meles Zenawi assumed power. Shortly after, the Patriarch, Abuna Merkorios, was dethroned under disputed circumstances. The controversial process led to the election of Abune Paulos as head of the Coptic Church in 1992.
