The Death of Meles Zenawi would be a great tragedy! By Tibebe Samuel Ferenji

July 25th, 2012 Print Print Email Email

In a movie titled “Brave Heart”, a movie that Actor Mel Gibson played the leading role and directed, when the King was in his death bed, the princess begged for mercy to save the life of William Wallace (Mel Gibson). When the king refused, the princess whispered in his ear saying that “After all, death will come to us all.” As the Americans say, the only thing certain in this world is “death and taxes.” Recently, the main issue in the Ethiopian politics and major news outlets has been the health of Mr. Zenawi. Today, a reliable source has indicated that Mr. Zenawi has returned to Ethiopia without divulging his condition. Although some hoped and wished for the death of Mr. Zenawi, I hoped for his survival.

Few months ago, there was a speculation about the death of Eritrea’s dictator Issaias Afeworki. The speculation led to intense discussions and comments. Among thousands of comments made about Issaias’ death, one touched my heart. The individual who commented stated that “It will be a tragedy if Issaias dies; this man inflicted enormous pain on the people of Eritrea; he is responsible for the destruction of millions of people lives, it will be injustice and a great tragedy if he dies in peace.” I share the sentiment of the commentator and, I feel the same way regarding the death of Mr. Zenawi. Mr. Zenawi does not deserve to die in peace!

Mr. Zenawi, before and after taking power in Ethiopia, has committed enormous crimes against humanity. As several news accounts indicated, under Zenawi’s watch civilians who did not support the TPLF were killed during TPLF’s rebel years. The crime did not stop after Meles took power. As several human rights reports clearly show, Meles Zenawi is responsible for the death and sufferings of millions of people. It is under his leadership that thousands of Amharas including women, children, and elderly were massacred, burned to death, and thrown in ditches. Since 1991, Meles and his cronies have imprisoned, abducted, tortured, and killed millions of innocent Ethiopians. Meles is responsible for the destruction of properties and for uprooting communities in Southern parts of Ethiopia. His crimes are enormous and painful to list here. I believe that it is a mistake to pray and wish for the peaceful death of this man? Soon or later death will comes to us all. There is no question that Meles will die, but he should die after facing his crimes and after justice is served for millions of Ethiopians who suffered under this brutal man.

Although Mr. Zenawi had an ample opportunity to unite the country, to establish sustainable peaceful governance, implement policies that are just, fair and that could have created an equal opportunity to all citizens, and an economic development that could have transformed the lives of millions of people. However, because he is short sighted, visionless, a moral and political dwarf, he squandered such golden opportunities. After 21 years of incompetent and brutal rule under Meles Zenawi, Ethiopia is still considered the poorest country in the world. For those who believe that Mr. Zenawi has taken the country in the right path, I suggest that they look at the history of South Korea. South Korea, a country with fewer natural resources than Ethiopia, has lifted itself from poverty, and became one of the economic tigers of the world within 15 years after the devastating war with North Korea that ended in 1950. There is no secret for the sustainable growth and economic development in South Korea. The government focused on its people and believed in the people of South Korea and established democratic governance where the country is governed with the rule of law. Companies like Hyundai and Samsung were established with the assistance of the Korean government. South Koreans did not sell their land to foreigners, did not inflated their Foreign Direct Investment and GDP data by using economic aid money to build the country’s infrastructure. The South Koreans did not rely in foreign companies; the government of South Korea created a conducive atmosphere for the middle class to strive, to build a business, and to be the back bone of South Koreas economy. Thanks for Meles and his voodoo economics, our country is ready to produce a generation of servants to foreigners. Instead of giving incentive to the people of Ethiopia to build a business and to engage in economic development that could transform the lives of our citizens, Mr. Meles has created an obstacle in form of high income tax, high vat, and other unnecessary fees.

In addition to government taxes, the corrupt EPRDF officials’ unethical practice and extortion has made it difficult for the middle class to strive in Ethiopia. The government is printing money like there is no tomorrow and has created a hyper inflation in the country that made it difficult for the ordinary people to feed themselves and their families. While top officials in the country are looting the country in millions under the prime minister’s nose, innocent children are dying with starvation. Mr. Meles must be brought to justice for the crime he committed against the Amaharas, the Oromos, the Gambelas, the Wolaytas, the Ogadens, the Tigreans and other ethnic groups in the country. This is the man who ordered the bombing of civilians in the middle of the city in order to frame the OLF for his own political gain, and to extort aid money from his Western allies in the name of fighting terrorism. The human rights violations, the social debacle, and the economic policy that has cost millions of people their homes, and their livelihood under Mr. Zenawi’s watch is cruel inhumane and a crime against humanity. For a man who ordered his brutal security forces to shoot and kill teenage boys, does not deserve a peaceful death. I DO NOT WISH Mr. Zenawi to die in peace. I want him to be brought to justice; I want him to suffer like he subjected millions of people to sufferings. Only Death-will not do. We should not allow this man to escape justice. I urge Ethiopian scholars, particularly those who studied International Law, to find a way to bring Mr. Zenawi and his brutal team that is responsible for the agony and sufferings of our people to the International Criminal Court. I am sorry to say, for Mr. Zenawi, it is not time to die yet! If he dies, it would be one of the greatest tragedies in the history of the world.

    [[..thousands of Amharas including women, children, and elderly were massacred, burned to death, and…]]

    How many thousands would it be? How about moving the number to “5 million Oromos” killed by Menelik as some separatist claim and be done with?

    It is interesting that you praised Park Chung Hee of South Korea for transforming South Korea. BTW, that is Meles’s hero as well. Park built the big industries you talked about along the Southeast Coast because he came from that area. A lot of South Koreans resented that. Does that sound familiar?

    Did you also know that Park was killed because South Koreans were tired of hyper inflation? At least that is how anti-Park sentiment started.

    The reason South Korean seems to be determined to build things on their own during Park’s time is because the Japanese were strong in South Korea and the sentiment was to be free of that. The opposite applies to Ethiopia. We need to bring others to kick our back a little. :-) So if Meles seems to “sell land”, the right term should be lease is because we need to kick start transformation and don’t have enough know how to do it ourselves. And with people like you sabotaging development all along what else can he do?

    Park received a lot of assistance by being the stooge of US and sent troops to Vietnam. Meles doing same and is getting some political & material help but needs more to create the magic needed to transform as the Asian Tiger South Korea however, he is in the right track.

    The tittle of this article should be

    ” Peaceful death escaped him justice”

    The death of an evil is not a tragedy. He is judged by his deeds and actions. His history is written in blood and tears. Never dry tear and blood of Ethiopians and Somalis will be remembered for long time to come. It will be shame to his followers for generations to come.

    Eritrea I am Eritrean myself why are mad at Ferenji for? Anybody can write anything he wants. To be honest are you Eritrean or a Weyane abusing the Eritrean name here? I se he called our President Issayas as a dictator but he is he anyways.for people like Fernji you don’t even read their post specially for us Eritreans period because he has no clue where Eritrea is going and where it started the only measuring stick they have whether a country is a democrat or not ie western imported democracy which fail without exception miserably thru out Africa eg Kenya< Uganda, to mention a couple. But people like Ferenju don't give a shit about what is happening to countries who claim to have democracy. I never heard him say anything about Kenya or Uganda? So we are giving to much credit for the so called experts who don't know a shit so there is no need to get mad at Fernji Eritrea. You just leave hm alone because its you who is wasting his time talking to this nonsense people like Fernji.

    I don’t think he is dying. I do believe that the Muslim protest could be staged with support of Alamoudi to distract Ethiopians from illness of Meles and he could die also. This will give them ample time to make decision. Some say there was protest before. That is misinformation and we would have heard about it. Although the tug-of-war was still there between the government and Muslims.

    What makes Ethiopia different from those of Meles has inspirations such as South Korea, China and India, in development and growth? These countries were poor also. Even though these countries have their own form of opression and dictatorishps:
    1. Their own people are in full participant for the development of their nation.
    2. You cannot build a country by dividing people one against the other, by campaigning anti unity and by campaigning anti sovereignty and anti Ethiopianism.
    3. The leaders on top of these countries are not disconnected from the people and are not pro ethnic that represent minority or not anti their own nation.

    Therefore TPLF/EPRDF are disconnected from the people as a whole and they don’t want the growth of Ethiopians without controlling every Ethiopian society. TPLFF/EPRDF is leading a system of Ethiopian society that evolved for centuries they detest hence Amara system. Thus the reason for TPLF/EPRDF to disconnect itself from this society including all ethnic groups and lives within its own bubble. Therefore, it is setting Ethiopian society with TPLF/EPRDF’s own system rather than through evolving. It needs to break up every part of the society from scratch: the church, the ethnicity, the mosque, the women, children, men, institutions etc. without natural evolving of the society under TPLF/EPRDF. Because of its disconnect from the society, thus the reason to import foriegners for the development of Ethiopia without participants of Ethiopian societies. The government is not only disconnected, it has been living with insecurity because of the society it doesn’t know or rejects since day 1. This is the reason any development in Ethiopia without the people’s participating is superficial. This even gives after development more rights to foreingers in Ethiopia rather than Ethiopians. That is the reason also why TPLF/EPRDF is kicking out Ethiopians out of the country through mass migration in the form of making refugees of men, trafficking of women and selling of children. It does not want to be antagonized by societies it detests.

    Leadershp of countries like China, India, etc we mentioned above, empower their societies as a whole and give comfort to their societies in knowing there is a sense of unity and sovereignty in their nations unlike leadershp of Ethiopia today, even with their imperfections. This is absolutely not the way to develop a nation at all.

    God bless Ethiopian sociey

    Dear friend . I couldn’t agree more to the point you outlined. While there is not much we can do make him face justice he denied other while lying in cofin, he should face the fate of Benito Mussolini. YTo give a lesson to other dictators, he was hunged with all his accomplicity for people to watch. . In my humble judgement, for what he has done to all nations in that empire , he doesn’t deserve any less treatment than Mussolini.

    Hi Engeda! You feel the pain when they tell you the truth! EPRDF systematically massacred the Amhara’s ( inferiority compelx) What they did with comparable to ethnic cleansing- if you don’t see that it means you are one of them. dergue was dictatorial junta it is true but EPRDF are criminal gangsters blinded by ethnic politics. Meles can be compared with stalin….

    Everyone must know including, Abebe Gellaw, that he badly irreparably knifed Meles during the summit in the US. He not only punctured and tortured his emotions, he agonizingly anaesthetized his heart unable to hold his head up and that unforgettably that came home with him to haunt him leading to his downfall. So for Abebe Gellaw, let him know that he killed Meles Zenawi.

    We fought for Eritrean independence from the colonial rule of Ethiopia. Even now, if Eritrea is attacked, EPRDF would jump into Eritrea, join the Eritrean people and engage the enemy.” – Sebhat Nega on Radio Woyane (May 28, 2007)

    TPLF has since its inception been controlled by mercenary elements that fought against Ethiopia as their enemy. The group that wiped out so many lives and terrorized Tigrians into slavery and servitude, is still in power. If Ethiopia is turned into a failed, landlocked state, it is with a purpose. Read details from the historical facts presented by Asgede G. Selassie, author of Gahdi 1 and Gahdi 2. A survivor of the pogrom, Asgede was one of the 11 rebels who founded TPLF.

    Dear Tibebe

    Good Analysis and arctile I think most people agrees with you including majority ethiopians but also the same time people wishes Meles’s death because since he is so evil and causes a lot of damage to the Country Ethiopa using evil ethnic aprthied system will fasten his downfall. So both ways his ethno centric aparthied will collapse sooner and him and this TPLF minority ethnic aparthied system war loards will face justice! Thanks for the article keep the good work and god bless you!

    I couldn’t agree more. Every chance I get, I’ve been saying most of the things you’ve talked about. Except that, I’m one of the people who prayed to God to stop tyrant Meles from committing crimes on innocent Ethiopians by every means God chooses. Even thought, I see your point that death is for everybody, but, Ethiopians haven’t been able to find a way to bring the brutal dictator that has bribed most of foreign authorities and also who is supported by the West to face the court for the despicable crimes the brutal Dictator Meles and the TPLF thugs have been committing for 21 miserable years. I strongly believe the senseless killers and the professional looters Meles and TPLF use the name EPRP as a scapegoat. I wonder, why you always shy-away from using the name TPLF? Yes, there are few non-TPLF hodams out there who have sold their souls for the mighty dollar, but the majority of the criminals that have controlled Ethiopia and running the country with iron-fist, that have left Ethiopia landlocked, that have been been destroying our mother land Ethiopia and torturing and killing our fellow Ethiopians for the last 21 years are the hateful racist, morally corrupted senseless killers and professional looters T P L F!

    Oh my dear SKULLS (movie) of Ethiopia! Even if Meles was feeding delicacies with silver spoons to every Ethiopian you still will find reasons to blame him because he doesn’t belong to your secret society. You think running a country like Ethiopia is easy and had it figured out by punching few data’s on the keyboards of your computers.
    If you were the government in Ethiopia for the past 20 years, what would you do to address the issue of social harmony considering the bitterness felt by the Tigray and Oromo people towards the Amara as a result of mismanagement and injustice committed by you Amharic speaking elites while you were running the country for the past century? Or, the neglect and dispossession felt by the other minority groups, and the looking down of the Amara on the others as a result of the false sense of superiority created by you. Unlike you, Mr. Meles recognized the diversity of the Ethiopian people and contrary to your assertion, he did not fail to unite the nation but succeeded on sowing the basic seeds of real unity because his idea entirely depends on the free will of the majority of all groups concerned. Under the current constitution and system of governance even Eritrea may have chosen to stay within the union.
    In economic terms, given the limited resources of the nation, what would you do to fulfill the needs of a society that quadruples its population within a span of around 30 years? Can you imagine what needs to be done in order to keep up with the demands of that kind of expansion in an under developed country? Is it fair to blame any government, if a farmer who lives in hut that could barely shelter him with his wife brings 10 children to this world regardless of what is needed to raise them and as a consequence his children became servants or child laborers?
    And stop using terms like “voodoo economics” because if you really knew what they meant you must have understood that the policy cannot be applied on under developed countries like Ethiopia.
    Finally, stop ridiculing yourselves as if anyone with real common sense is going to believe you when you say thousands killed or starved just because you said so. Under the sun of Ethiopia today anyone can easily find out what goes on anywhere. It is true that confrontations took place in several occasions due to mistakes of management or losers from the past taking advantage of the ignorance of the innocent. Of course few have been injured here or scores killed there unfortunately, but compared to what the Ethiopian people sacrificed to defend feudal, monarchs, and dictators in the past, this is a very little price to pay for mother democracy.

    Mr Dawit,

    It is true under Melese, each ethnic is well aware as group what the Tigry minority ruler is doing. If your interpretation of unity is as rule of Tigrean elites, just wait for a while till the medicine you prescribed to each ethnic community start to kick in.

    You’re simply laughable and shameless TPLF cadre. It is obvious that you are one of those badly brainwashed TPLF banda with no hope of recovery. You have a nerve still trying to persuade people in blaming Amharas when the evidence is right there in our faces that Meles and the TPLF thugs have been giving, selling and looting our fertile land from East to West and from North to south, Selling Ethiopian young women as slaves, locking up hundreds of thousands of innocent Ethiopians, torturing and mass killing hundreds of thousands of innocent Ethiopians.

    Wow!!! so many frustrated Eritreans writing here. Isayyas has put you in the gutter from which you could not get out. Even Tibebe Samuel has deserted you. Keep on playing dumb or are you really dumb fearing Isayas so much that you are suffering the Stockholm syndrome. On the other side of the fence, it is only Meles who is no more, the rest of the Tigrean vermin had to go also- and soon

    Selam Tibebe Samuel Ferenji,
    You have put out an interesting view. You correctly described the political climate under which our country is and the evel deeds of the ethnic dictator. I do not share the stand your took about his death. For me, whatever the circumstance I wish he died yesterday. I do not want him to stay one more day.
    Let me reason out my point. It is not Meles that should concern us. His suffering is not going to bring any plus for us. On the other hand, his death is a minus on the enemies of Ethiopia. Do not get me wrong, I do not have any illusion that wen he dies all will be dandy. For me it is unknown. Currently, the near fact that they are telling us he is alive, wheather true or not, helps the rulers to continue what has been done on the Ethiopian people for the last two decades. Once he dies, there are two possibilities. A worse political leader will come or a mess is created within themselves and the people will rise. True, under the first possibility too the people will rise but will take a little time.
    In my view, te longer they hide his demise, the longer the agony of our people. Let it be his death and let us face what follows with the uprising the people will be forced into. His hanging is not important when you compare to what is being done to Ethiopians each day his death is not declared. His body being chopped to millions and thrown to the dust will not bring any Ethiopian any benefit. The sooner he dies, the sooner our fate will lead us to whatever is inevitable.

    Very well said. Very true. “Although Mr. Zenawi had an ample opportunity to unite the country, to establish sustainable peaceful governance, implement policies that are just, fair and that could have created an equal opportunity to all citizens, and an economic development that could have transformed the lives of millions of people. However, because he is short sighted, visionless, a moral and political dwarf, he squandered such golden opportunities. After 21 years of incompetent and brutal rule under Meles Zenawi, Ethiopia is still considered the poorest country in the world. “

    The death of the blood thisty dog is a great relief for the Ethiopians. The Ethiopians have the possibility to buld their country from the scratch. The great burden does not cause any problem. The tplf shall disappear with the bloody dog.

    Everyone want to sound like the love for the mother land is greater than anything. Especially those living abroad are all liers. They can not do anything for their country beside drinking beer in the resturant, talking bla bla bla bla. Meles is a man, a hero, too. No one is perfect. He did what he could. The country is progressing while others are abroad, womanizing, drinking, stealing, eating raw meat that is all they can do. Long life to Meles Zenawi

    Right now, you are the brutal one!! Atleast show sympathy that a great man had died. I bet you ethiopia will not have as smart and concerned prime minister in the days coming, atleast not one that you would still be alive to see.
