CONGRA! PM MELES!Yinegal Belachew
Few moments back, just before I started to write this article of mine, I read one good anti-chauvinist piece on Ethiomedia. I said to myself that that article must have been written and sent by His Execellency PM Meles Zenawi. No body else, when the article is measured in any respect, be it linguistically or content wise, no other entity in this world can write such an outstanding letter of white lies. I swear in the name of God that it is written by him, if not by someone whose position in the political strata of Ethiopia is nearer to him. I know Meles is quite fond of waging his war through the internet via various pseudonyms. I have learnt that he too is addicted to the cyber warfare like some of us in the ‘Chavinists’’ bloc, Therefore, Meles might have been the one who had composed, edited, and emailed that funny letter.
Let me start my own letter as an antidote to that trash ‘written’ by so called ‘Tesfaye Chama’, though he didn’t tell us whose ‘chama’ he is. Well, quite understandably, he must be the ‘chama’(shoes) of Mr Devil who’s represented by Meles.
Any how congra, PM Meles, God has sent you HE Engineer Obedient Desalegn H/Mariam so that you can have the best of times to enjoy life with your family after 35 years of self-imposed rigorous imprisonment.
Congra, PM Meles, God has sent you HE Engineer Obedient Desalegn H/Mariam so that we ‘chauvinists’ can assume that we are free of the gripping hands of the Tigrian Hegemony,
Congra, PM Meles, God has sent you HE Engineer Obedient Desalegn H/Mariam
so that all the ticks and the bugs in the offices of all ministries will automatically stop milking Ethiopia in an astoundingly cruel manner,
Congra PM Meles, God has sent you HE Engineer Obedient Desalegn H/Mariam so that he would serve your Majesty in transposing the old wine into the new bottle,
Congra PM Meles, God has sent you HE Engineer New Horse Desalegn and Doctor New Donkey Demeke Mekonnen so that you can gallop us, the people, as usual with the help of these speaking animals of your own creation
Congra PM Meles, you have managed to have new carts and soul-less trucks through which you can dump all your paraphernalia upon us,
Congra PM Meles, your devious nature and the insincere advice you receive from foreign part time politicians to whom you have outsourced the major job of sustaining your ethnic politics have as usual helped you handpick few mindless and gluttonous citizens from other ethnic groups so that your drama seems plausible to foreign observers,
Congra PM Meles, you have somehow managed to silence the opposition with the main assistance from the opposition side, in fact, so that you can easily do whatever you would like to do, for the time is yours now. …
Finally, congra Engineer Desalegn and other ‘appointees’. What a luck you have got! What a golden opportunity has come unto your doors! We too are the luckiest people, for our beloved and democratically elected PRIME MINISTER MELES ZENAWI has assigned educated people who will work day and night for the development of our country.
Let’s be realistic and come to our conscience. ANYONE WHO HAS READ THE ABOVE PIECE OF WRITING, ESPECIALLY THE SO CALLED INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, PLEASE BE AWARE AND GET INFORMED THAT THERE IS NO ONE IN ETHIOPIA OTHER THAN MELES ZENAWI THAT DECIDES ANYTHING. WHOEVER IS APPOINTED BY MELES IS NONE BUT MELES_INCARNATE AND ANYBODY ASSIGNED BY MELES HAS TO BLINDLY OBEY HIS MASTER. NO OTHER OPTION.
THEREFORE, WHOEVER COMES TO WHICHEVER OFFICE, INSIDE THAT PERSON THERE IS ONLY MELES. MELES IS THE HEART AND MIND OF ALL CIVIL SERVANTS IN ETHIOPIA EXCEPTING JANITORS WHO DO NOT NECESSARILY WAIT FOR HIS DIRECTION TO CLEAN.
THEREFORE, PLEASE LETS NOT TAKE SERIOUS THE DRAMA MADE BY MELES AND HIS GULLIBLE CRONIES, LIKE THE ONE WHO IS SAID TO HAVE SENT THE FUNNIEST LETTER TO ETHIOMEDIA.
BY THE WAY, WE ETHIOPIANS DO NOT CARE WHO TAKES OVER OFFICES AS LONG AS WE ARE TREATED AS CITIZENS ON THE BASES OF EQUALITY AND EQUITY. HENCE, THIS NONSENSE TALK OF THE WAYANNES THAT WE ‘CHAUVINISTS’ ARE AGAINST THE MINORITY IS FAR FETCHED AND IS INTENDED TO DECEIVE SOME INNOCENT PEOPLE.
WE ARE FED UP OF JOKES AND STRATEGIC LOQUACITY JUST FOR THE SAKE OF DIVERTING OUR THINKING AND BEG ATTENTION.
