Africa Ethiopians give lacklustre welcome to Kwame Nkrumah statue By DANIEL HOWDEN

February 14th, 2012 Print Print Email Email

The arrival of Ghanaian great Kwame Nkrumah in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa 40 years after his death has been met with notable local resistance.

Ethiopians are signing a petition demanding that a statue of the pan-Africanist leader which was recently unveiled outside the new African Union headquarters be joined by one of the late emperor Haile Selassie or removed.

As well as the signatures, a group of Ethiopian elders, opposition politicians and scholars have written to the AU Commission voicing their disappointment at its decision to “ignore” the deposed emperor.

The golden statue of Nkrumah was erected to commemorate his founding role in the Organisation of African Unity, the AU’s predecessor.

The late Ethiopian monarch’s supporters have argued that their man, who became internationally famous for his resistance against the Italians under Mussolini, was a longer-standing supporter of African liberation than Ghana’s founding president.

“It is Haile Selassie who is described by African leaders as the father of Africa not Nkrumah,” said Yacob Hailemariam, an opposition politician who has spoken out against the choice of the Ghanaian.

The campaign has, however, infuriated Ethiopia’s current leader Meles Zenawi who said it was “crass” to question Nkrumah’s choice as an African symbol and has repeatedly denounced Selassie, who died in 1975, as a “feudal dictator”.

“It is only Nkrumah who is remembered whenever we talk about pan Africanism,” Mr Meles told local media. “It is a shame not to accept his role.”

The AU confirmed that it had received a letter signed by prominent Ethiopians, many of them living abroad, but declined to comment. The protest letter says that Selassie who ruled Ethiopia for 40 years had “the legal, moral, historical and diplomatic legitimacy to have his statue erected next to Kwame Nkrumah.”

The inauguration of the new headquarters in Addis Ababa was meant to underline Ethiopia and Africa’s burgeoning friendship with China which funded the $200m construction. However, the summit served to remind the outside world of the AU’s reliance on foreign funding and on its propensity for squabbling as Cameroon’s Jean Ping and South Africa’s Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma fought each other to a draw over the leadership of the 54-nation club.

The revelation that the AU relies for two-thirds of its funding on Western donors and that many members had both failed to pay their dues or fulfil their aid promises made during last year’s Horn of Africa famine, dampened the occasion. The empty coffers reminded many observers that the main patron of pan-Africanism in recent years was the deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi who was killed last year.

The statue row has enabled Ethiopia’s downtrodden opposition to rally support and opposition blogs have started to refer to the AU’s new 100 metre tall marble home as the “sarcophagus of Africa”.

Under Prime Minister Meles, who backtracked on his promise to leave office and ran again at the last election, the country has become increasingly authoritarian, imprisoning opposition leaders, curtailing non-governmental organisations and harassing political opponents.

The two competing African champions might have found the whole row quite strange as they were close supporters of each other’s causes before the emperor was deposed by the Derg coup leaders in 1974.

    I don’t have word to express Meles Zenawi badness. He is distroying the great history and image of Ethiopia. When I think the current gov’t of Ethiopia always I feel sadness, because they don’t have love for Ethiopia and Ethiopians. Tyranny Meles governs Ethiopians like bandit system, some one criticize him and his rule to be terrorist by his rule. God bless Ethiopia. I wish some who love Ethiopia govern Ethiopian people.

    FROM GETACHEW REDA
    Meles never been representative of Ethiopia, it is expected from a mercenary like him to reject the powerful Haile Selassie’s record. It is expected THE SHOWA KING/s” to be hate by Mercenaries like him.

    Remember, when the Eritrean bankrupted elites were stating the battle of Aduwa was Fascist’ victory, that battle was the victory of Italians not Ethiopians? Remember that? It was one of the pathetic bankrupted and psychologically defected fellow lead by the name Asmerom Legesse who grew up in Ethiopia and speaks Amharic not Tigringa well, and other similar opportunist Italian lovers and admirers who said and argued that openly with no shame to their parents’ dignity and to the Africans as well. Even the worst opportunist Dr.Berket Habteselassie who was blaming Ethiopians in the 60’s for not standing to Eritrean disintegration – but admire and respect other Africans as Pan Africans for admitting that Eritrea was a colony of Ethiopia- he also admire the Communist Nukuram as Pan Africanist than Haileselassie- you can listen his interview on VOA Tigringa.

    Therefore, Meles is an Eritrean elite’s admirer who loves respect Colonialist Maps and respect Italian Maps to defeat Ethiopia’s case in the International media. So, if Meles stood for Nukurma, it is not that he believed on it- he is just doing his hate against the Emperor and the nation’s pride as he is known to curse the National flag as a rag flag.
    Melse and his group not only are refelecting their hate to Ethiopia and Ethiopianism, but if you listen to Sebhat Nega’s lately in VOA TIgringa , he said Axum never include its administration and history the locality of Agame, Tembyen, Enderta and Raya (when asked how- he said ‘I am not sure’ but somebody said/wrote so” . He said it is only Axum, Shire and Adua.

    There you have it, I argue and wrote with one of the silly TPLF cadre via Email right away., told him that it was the mission of Tigray Tigringi that his master Sebhat and his stooges are cleaning their way to that kind of talk on media to fulfill the agenda of “Tigray

    Tigringai: (Axum, Seraye, Akolegizay, Adua”).
    Don’t you love this century? There, you have a defected opposition in love with “some” mercenary oppositions sleeping in Diaspora Serengeti and also you have mercenary rulers sleeping with Colonialist masters ruing ancient country. Just cry my beloved country! Follow me on my weblog next week on Haileselassie’s struggle that many of you never read of it. So, the Wusih Washy Dr.Yakob Hailemariam is correct for standing with Haileselassie on this one. Nukurma was a die hard communist,so is Meles. Thanks.

    Time and history will reveal every thing for we Africans.
    We have lost wisdom and commonsense and we are simply living the fantasy and illusion of democracy.And in fact the West has been providing us this fantasy and illusion of democracy and let’s enjoy this illusion and fantasy.When all our naive and gullible Ethiopian intellectuals have been condemning Ghadafi and supporting his disgraceful and tragic end by the insidious orchestration of the West then i was some how ashamed as an African in that we have some how lost wisdom and commonsense.And the very tragic and disgraceful end of Ghadafi has not been intended to bring us neither democracy nor development and rather it has been rather to punish and to disgrace and discourage any such charismatic independent and nationalist leaders like Ghadafi in Africa and in 3rd world countries in general.
    The very aim and motive is neither about democracy nor about development but rather to replace independent nationalist leaders with stooge client-regime that bow and advance the interest of global capitalism and that of the West.The entire mission against Libya and Ghadafi has been something heinous and the so called humanitarian mission and democracy is just a disguise and smokescreen to cover-up the insidious motive in order to confuse the naive and gullible global populace.And hence time will tell every thing regarding leaders like Ghadafi.The very disgrace and tragic end of Ghadafi has been just the very beginning of a new phase of scramble for African resources and it is Africans disgrace and also the beginning of new phase of neo-colonialism by the West.And we will see what the future Africa will look like without guys charismatic and nationalist like Ghadafi and with stooges and client-regimes like Ato Meles and others who are office boys of Global Capitalism.

    There is evidence showing that the fascist and racist Meles Zenawi has used his usual anti-Amhara politics in his campaign against the building of Statue to the late Emperor Haile Selassie. It is well known that Meles has an intense and deep seated hatred against any thing he thinks has something to with the Amharas. The late Emperor has Amhara blood and this is to the disliking of Meles and his followers. Meles has this kind of reasoning. If Axum is nothing to the non-Tigrayans, then Emperor Haile Selassie`s achievements and roles in the creation of the Organization of African Unity, is nothing to Ethiopia and Africa.

    On the ongoing debate about whose statute should be at the AU headquarters, I am at a loss as to why some Ethiopians respectfully think that if Selasie’s statute is not there, then none other’s should be.

    My solemn reminder to the people of Ethiopia is that, several African states are in a stark contest to have the AU headquarters relocated from Addis Ababa. Gadafi fought strong for the AU to be moved to Tripoli or Sirte. Obasanjo also tried to get it moved to Nigeria. South Africa will receive it thankfully anyday/anytime and host it in one of its many sky-towers. If the AU is moved, Ethiopia stands to loose more and Ethiopians should be thankful to Meles whom albeit his shortcomings has diplomatically militated for the AU to remain seated in Addis Ababa.

    Secondly, as much as the AU is headquartered in Addis, Ethiopians should be mindful of the fact that it is not theirs. It is a headquarter for Africans and Ethiopia only has the privilege of hosting it. Such a privilege which could be lost to another African state comes with a lot of employment and commercial benefits to Ethiopians. It is thus in Ethiopia(n)s interest to support any intiatives of the AU than to be seen as an obstacle to the AU’s continental independence; or even to be seen as attempting to micro-manage the AU.

    On who is greater between Nkrumah and Selasie, I would like to be recused from that debate. Be that as it may, sufficing to state that the reasoning and choice of Nkrumah’s statute as the founding father of the OAU seems to me logical why at the inauguration of the new building, his and not Selasie’s statute should be there. If by contrast the reasoning was who is the greatest African, I am certain that Nkrumah and Selasie would have huge competition from people like Mandela.

    I agree with you on many the facts you said about Meles, some of Eritrean elites, Woyane and the “Tigray Tigrigni” concept. However, as scholar, you need to focus on the argument. The point is not about Nukurma being “… a die hard communist,” or as Meles wrongly labeled the Emperor a “feudal dictator.” It is about AOU (AU) and the founders legacy to it. In fact, Haileselassie was the face of OAU throughout the world NOT Nukurma. Nevertheless, they both deserve the honor. As a dictator and strongman himself, Meles is simply terrified to erect Haileselassie’s statue in Addis Ababa – for fear of officially acknowledging and recognizing the works of the great king. Remember, Rastafarians and a good chunk of the population still worships the Emperor. @GETACHW REDA

    The founding fathers of OAU are the thirty two head-of-states even though Emperor Haile Selassie played the pivotal role in evplving OAU out of the so called Monrovia group v the Casablanca group. Au need to parade the statues of all the thirty two leaders. This is about the actual history that happened on May 1963.

    Thank you my brother – I 100 + percent agree with you. The Eth oppositions blogging here are living abroad. They have no idea what AU means to Ethiopia interms of political and economical benefits. What ever the current gov does is bad for them regardless of its merit to Ethiopia. Why argue about a statue when the whole complex is in Addis? If you happen to visit the the New AU – you will find – the graceful picture of Haileselassie, Gamal and three former Afican head of states who put the OAU together. The Emperor is well represented inside and out.

    Next time you stop by Addis ( I assume you live close by ) check this marvellous place out –

    Let’s be very logical and in fact have some wisdom and commonsense.
    So many Ethiopians and may be so many other foreigners who knows HIM Haileselasie are annoyed and shouting not based on what is happening to Nkrumah but rather based on what is happening to HIM.
    Let’s say if on a wedding ceremony the bridge gets very well dressed and is very gorgeous and to the contrary the bridegroom is becoming very shabby and then will people give attention and talk more about the shabby bridegroom or about the gorgeous bride? I think they will talk more about the shabby bridegroom. Then if the peoples complain about the shabby state of the bridegroom then does it mean that they are opposing about the bride being so gorgeous? When we think of about OAU historical foundation who will automatically come to our mind as a significant role players? Only Nkrumah?
    The entire debate and conflict is not about Nkrumah being graceful and honored it is rather about HIM being disgraced and dishonored. It is such a very blatant conspiracy against Ethiopia. Even Meles was trying to defend his blatant insanity (in fact he has being doing insane things for the last 30 or more years) regarding the issue by giving silly illogical things. No body as such complained as to why the statue of Nkrumah is erected but rather as to why the statue of HIM is ignored deliberately. OAU was here in Ethiopia not by mere 21st century lobbying style but rather by the reason of grace and honor Ethiopia has historically achieved due to its remarkable anti-colonial struggle by the grace of God.
    Even it is very silly and illogical when Meles replied to defend his insanity in that we owe Nkrumah for his statue being built in Ethiopia and also for the verse of the bible regarding “Ethiopia stretches it hands to God” being written on the statue as his favorite quote. Ethiopians grace and honor is more of through HIM rather than through Nkrumah. Why Meles is even in the first place saying this that we Ethiopians owe Nkrumah for his statue with “Ethiopia stretches it hands to God” being written on the statue as his favorite quote? And when Ato Meles defends his insanity this way deep inside he is indirectly or directly exposing his disregard for Ethiopians, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopia. I respect Nkrumah and I am even happy that his statue being erected in Addis AU. But the entire situation seems like making deliberate segregation between the bride and the bridegroom. And deep deep inside the very insidious sentiment and motive behind the statue issue seems not about honoring Nkrumah but rather about disgracing and disregarding Ethiopians, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopia and their associated remarkable monumental proud history it contributed against fighting colonialism. And such remarkable monumental proud history does not match with that of the most shameful and disgraceful history of our today’s mercenary stooge leaders like Ato Meles and Ato Isayas. Whatever talk, hype and rationalization about the merits of Nkrumah does not compensate the insanity committed against HIM by Ato Meles. What is the irony behind the avoidance of HIM statue? It is to systematically to detach the remarkable historical anti-colonialism footprints of Ethiopia from AU and in doing so to create a sense of division and disarray among Africans. Some one simply can not buy invaluable history with money. Ethiopia has been the grace of Africa and Africans due to its so many historical backgrounds and that is why OAU has been here in Ethiopia. Why are we talking about lobbying? Let the lobbyists take away AU from Addis to any where they like it if they are to have grace by doing this. We have earned AU to be here in Ethiopia through our honor not we lobbied it by money. How ever our today’s leaders are trying to buy history with money which is not only ridiculous but also insanity. Denial of the statue of HIM is like blatant denial of blatant history. The entire situation regarding the statue issue, honoring Nkrumah while ignoring HIM, seems like inviting a husband or wife alone to a certain usual ceremony or festivity without the other spouse.
    It is silly and ridiculous to defend this insanity. Finally I would like to say that we evaluate the worth of AU not only by the quality of its skyscraper state of the art buildings or by the whose statues it erects, but also more of by the quality of governance it delivers to Africans and Africa as that is what matters eventually. And indeed Nkrumah, HIM and others who contributed such a significant role for OAU and AU foundation do not blame or praise the current AU and its leaders for erecting or for not erecting statue but rather by the quality of governance AU provides for Africa and Africans.

    although I don’t care about Qadaffi, yes it is true. There will soon be neolonialism in Africa. Does anyone know that AFRICOM is in Eritrea? I guess Eritrea wanted to be independent to be a client state. Although both TPLF and Shaebia hate Ethiopia, the drive behind them are super powers and people who have vested interest in Ethiopia ever since they took power. Yet, these groups including OLf have the nerve to criticize our past leaders? The goal is any country that is nationalistic, kingdom, etc quickly destroyed because corporations can’t come in take resources because nationalism and kingdoms are staunch supporters of the people and its sovereignty. That is why TPLF/Shaebia/OLF are perfect clients to appoint because none of them respect the sovereignty of Ethiopia and that is where we are. A hedge-fund person in New York predicted that Sudan, Nigeria and Ethiopia will disintegrate. This is the paln. Sudan broke up. Nigeria is on the verge of breaking because of N and S christians and muslims with recent Boko Haram funded by you know who will soon go away. Meles is already implementing the disintegration of Ethiopia with support of OLF and ONLF.

    so you live in Addis, hence you understand Ethiopia and its interest better? This is the illogic of the TPLF cadres who masquarade as EPRFites. The truth, it is not about Nkrumah. Ethiopians at least non-Tigrians are very inclusive and we are happy for Nkrumah. The issue is the TRUTH. The OAU/Au would have founded without Ethiopia and HIM. That is the truth.

    Most bloggers know the issue and Meles’ motive: Hate of Amaras. Sad

And hence democracy is also something we earn it not only we claim it. There are so many naïve and gullible in the new generation who think so that democracy is something an already baked bread that is ready on the shelf to be bought and eaten. And hence due to this there are even so many naïve and gullible who do not well understand the tedious long process of Nation-State creation and building in that they even expect all nations were created through democracy. And it is this illusion and fantasy that is becoming the very source of our contempt and disregard for our past leaders like HIM Haileselasie.አፄ ሃይለስላሴን ውሻ ውሻ እያለ ሲያዋርድ የነበረ ትውልድ በዘመነ ደርግም ይሁን ዛሬ በዘመነ ወያኔ ምን እየገጠመው እንደሆነ በአይናችን እያየን ነው፡፡ቅዱስ መፅሀፍም ክብር ለሚገባው ክብር ስጡ ነው ያለው፡፡እኛ ግን ክብር የሚገባውን እያዋረድን እኛም በተራችን የዘራነውን እያጨድን የተረገጥንና የተዋረድን ህዝቦች ሆነን ቀረን፡፡ብቻ ትውልዱ ግራ የገባውና መላቅጡ የጠፋበት ቀውስ ውስጥ እንደሆነ አፌን ሞልቼ ለመናገር እችላለሁኝ፡፡
    እግዚአብሄር ማስተዋሉን አድሎን ከዚህ ግራ መጋባት ያውጣን!!!

    Mr. Charles seems to send a dictatorial message perhaps a Shabia pretending to be from other African nation. We know Issayas picture lobbying for Qadaffi for the AU to be removed from Addis. However, what Charles seems not to mention is that on what grounds, what is it that is driving such ideas moving AU to another African nation, can anyone explain that? The issue is the hatred on HIM from TPLF and Shaebia and they lobby heavily and brainwash other Africans against Ethiopia and HIM. The reason? These groups still feel under shadowed by leaders of the past and their ghosts are hunting them and they are not resting and they are in fear. That is why, although HIM is hardly Amara but he followed the system, that is why they are working day and night to destroy this. Unfortunately as a non amara I can speak, every ethnicities in Ethiopia is inseparable therfore, if they attempt to destroy Amara, they are also attempting to destroy themselves.

    Kwame Nkrumah was a visionary revolutionary leader of Africa.

    ቀዳማዊ ሃይለስላሴ ግን የኢትዮጵያው በአንድ በኩል የገዛ ህዝባቸው በርሃብ ሲረግፍ (ምናልባትም በውስጣዊ ደስታ) ዝም ብሎ የሚያይ፣ በሌላ በኩል ደግሞ ህዝባቸውን በራሳቸው በንጉሱ፣ በእነ ልጆቻቸው ተናኘና ወዘተ, እንዲሁም በጭፍሮቻቸው እንደነ መስፍን ስለሺ አይነቶቹ የሚቦጠቡጠው አድሃሪው ጭሰኝነት ስርዓት ቁንጮ ነበሩ!

    @Charles Nyuykonge
    Charles,
    Most of us are not against the statue of Kwame Nkrumah. To the contrary. Our issue is the absence of acknowledgment of HIM Selassie’s contribution to the old OAU and Pan Africanism in general.

    As an old guard member of the defunct All African Peoples Revolutionary Party, we never thought Nkrumah was any greater than Sekou Toure.

    I shall not repeat what has already been written about the contribution of the HIM but,I can argue quite adamantly that Nkrumah’s contribution is no more than Sekou Toure’s or Leopold Sengor’s.

    Shame on you Meles and TPLF for creating this unnecessary brouhaha. Your desire to minimize HIM is disgraceful.
