Birtukan Mideksa is Abugida’s Person of the Decade!
Abugida chooses Birtukan Mideksa as Person of the Decade. By the same token, we chose “Legesse Zenawi” aka “Meles Zenawi” as Tyrant, Coward and Scumbag of the decade.
Birtukan Mideksa aka “Lady Liberty” is a defiant and courageous woman who transcends daily treachery of Zenawi. She chose unity over being intoxicated with ethnicism. She chose democracy over being a mechanism to oppress her people. She chose justice over being an instrument to commit injustice. She chose going to jail over succumbing to Master of Evil, Zenawi and becoming his puppet.
Prof. Al Mariam, in his recent article titled “Birtukan, Invictus! (Unconquered) – A Tribute” states:
“On a personal note, I thank Birtukan for inspiring me and many others like myself to be involved in the struggle for human rights and democracy in the country of our birth. The courage of her convictions refreshes us every day like the pure mountain spring water. For all Birtukan Midekssa has done and tried to do, and in the spirit of eternal gratitude, I dedicate to her William Ernest Henley’s poem, “Invictus” (Unconquered). Nelson Mandela had this poem written on a piece of paper which he kept in his cell to uplift his spirit over the long years of incarceration. I trust this poem will uplift Birtukan’s spirit as much as it did Mandela’s.”
It is for the same reason that we chose Birtukan, Invictus to be our person of the decade.
Meles Zenawi – It would not be an exaggeration to say he has committed every crime imaginable by the human mind. Here are some of his crimes:
He has landlocked Ethiopia without access to port by conspiring with an enemy.
He has disregard for the symbol behind the Ethiopian flag and ridiculed it to be just a mere sheet (“Cherq”)
He has jailed democracy. He has sentenced patriotic Ethiopians to death and life in prison. In reality, he was the one who supposed to be put to death in pain.
He has looted billions from Ethiopia and made deposits in foreign banks. One of his most memorable scam was on the National Bank of Ethiopia when he sold fake gold to the bank.
He has promoted division among different ethnic groups so that Ethiopians would kill each other.
He has jailed and killed across age, sex and ethnic lines.
Currently, in the name of investment, he is selling farm lands to foreign investors which will eventually make Ethiopian farmers slaves to these investors.
For the last two decades, he has been literally sucking the blood out of Ethiopia.
Melese Zenawi and his gangs have committed every crime that the human mind can comprehend. Check out the following link for some of his minor offenses:
Crimes of Zenawi
Bob Marley, in one of his songs says “Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality . Wake Up and Live!”
So, our message to Ethiopians in the new year is to “Wake up and Live!” No more submission to the treachery of Zenawi. Our vision for the new year should be to put zenawi behind bar and set Birtukan free!
We pray also that Ethiopians to be defiant of the Zenawi regime.
Zenawi is Ethiopia’s cancer cell so he must be removed by any means necessary.
