A farewell to Meles Zenawi By Alemayehu G. Mariam

August 27th, 2012 Print Print Email Email

For over two hundred seventy-five weeks, without missing a single week, I have written long expository commentaries on the deeds and misdeeds of the man who has been at the helm of power in Ethiopia for over two decades. Meles Zenawi has now passed on. The cause of his death remains a closely guarded state secret.

There is little I can say about what Meles has done or not done in death that I have not said in life. But his death saddens me, because as John Donne said, “Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind. Death comes equally to us all, and makes us all equal when it comes.” As a committed human rights advocate, even the death of a tyrant diminishes me because I am involved in the cause of humanity– justice, fairness, equality, dignity, benevolence, compassion, forgiveness, honesty, integrity and magnanimity.

I bid Meles farewell not in words of lamentation or grievance but in words that record lost opportunities yet express hope, optimism and confidence in the future of Ethiopia.

Meles Zenawi was a man who had an appointment with destiny. Fate had chosen him to play a historic role in Ethiopia and beyond. He was one of the leaders of a rebel group that fought and defeated a brutal military dictatorship that had been in power for 17 years. In victory, Meles promised democracy, respect for democratic liberties and development. But as the years wore on, Meles became increasingly repressive, intolerant of criticism and in the end became as tyrannical as the tyrant he had replaced. In his last years, he created a police state reinforced by a massive security network of spies and surveillance technology. He criminalized press freedom and civil society institutions. He crushed dissent and all opposition. He spread fear and loathing that penetrated the remotest parts of the countryside. For over 21 years, Meles clutched the scepter of power in his hands and cast away the sword of justice he held when he marched into the capital from the bush in 1991. Meles was feared, disliked and demonized by his adversaries. He was loved, admired, idealized and idolized by his supporters. In the end, Meles died a man who had absolute power which had corrupted him absolutely. In his relentless pursuit of absolute power, Meles missed his appointment with destiny to become a peerless and exemplary Ethiopian leader.

But who was the Meles Zenawi we saw morphing from a promising democrat into a flagitious dictator over the past 21 years? Who was the man we accuse of human rights violations and crimes against humanity? Who was the man we blame for the stillbirth of democracy in Ethiopia and the creation of “an African police state” as CNN recently characterized it? Is he alone responsible for the suffering and woe that have befallen that poor nation? Perhaps some may be surprised to hear one of Meles’ severest critics in life raising such questions in his death. But the truth must be told.

We created and nurtured Meles over the past 21 years. We were his aiders and abettors. We share responsibility in his deeds and misdeeds. “We” are the great nations who lionized and gave billions of dollars to Meles every year even as we meticulously documented his massive record of human rights violations year after year. “We” are the members of the political party that controls 99.6 percent of the seats in parliament who rubber-stamped his repressive laws that criminalized journalists and civil society organizations and made “terrorists” out of our best and brightest youth. “We” are the judges who made a travesty of justice by subverting the halls of justice into kangaroo courts. “We” are the soldiers, police and security operatives who used our guns on innocent civilians. “We” are the civil servants who stood at Meles’ beck and call and did his bidding unquestioningly. “We” are the journalists for state media who covered up and justified his violations of human rights. “We” are the businessmen and women who profited from official corruption to line our pockets. “We” are the young men and women who signed up for party membership to access opportunities in a system we knew to be corrupt. “We” are Ethiopia’s intellectuals who chose not to stand up to Meles or stand up for principle. “We” are the opposition party leaders who bickered, quarreled and quibbled when millions looked up to us to lead us on the shining path to democracy. “We” are the Ethiopian Diaspora who kept silent, turned a deaf ear, muted lips and blind eyes as ordinary Ethiopians were subjected to extrajudicial killings, dissidents and critics jailed and political prisoners tortured and abused. “We” are the individuals who could have said or done something when Meles did wrong but chose to remain silent. The truth must be told. None of us can wash off our hands the sins of silence, complicity and indifference over the past twenty-one years. So “We” all should be mindful that when we point an index finger at Meles, three fingers are pointing at ourselves.

Meles was an exceedingly ambitious man who understood power, but only the dark side of power. He could not come to terms with the truth that real power comes from the consent of the people and must be exercised in accordance with the principle of the rule of law. He held the power of life and death, but used it more for the latter. He was the policeman, judge, jury and executioner. He was the law, and his will was the law of the land. Meles was blinded to the fact that with great power comes great responsibility. He scorned the idea that those who hold power must temper it with compassion, justice and tolerance. But having absolute power made Meles feel absolutely invincible, indestructible, indomitable and unconquerable. He missed his appointment with destiny.

Meles could have been a peerless and exemplary leader in Ethiopia and in Africa. Many of the world’s dictators in history were great leaders. Their “greatness” came from their brutal subjugation of their people. But exemplary leaders achieve greatness because they are loved, revered and cherished by their people. Their greatness comes from their openness of heart, mind and soul. Nelson Mandela is a peerless and exemplary leader embraced by the entire world even though he was in office for four years and spent much of his adult life languishing in Apartheid prisons. Today he is seen as an icon of humanity. What makes Mandela an exemplary leader is not his charisma, oratory, organizing or administrative skills. Mandela was concerned about people, not power. Mandela’s first and foremost concern was dignity, the dignity of all South Africans and the dignity of all humanity. Mandela became a peerless leader because he took a single seed of love from his heart and planted in the arid soil of racial hate and watered it with goodwill, patience and tolerance. When the world wagered on a bloodbath in South Africa, in six years Mandela brought black and white South Africans together and baptized them in the holy water of truth and reconciliation. Today South Africa is a shining example of a multiracial society with its own imperfections.

Meles had an appointment with destiny to walk in Mandela’s shoes and follow in his footsteps. He could have forged a strong and united Ethiopian nation. He had the chance to build bridges that connected people across ethnic lines, roads that linked hearts and minds. But he chose the path of ethnic division and fragmentation. He chose to build edifices to decorate the cities, roads that led to nowhere and dams that damned the people and gave away the land to foreigners for pennies in the name of development and investment. Meles missed his appointment with destiny to forge a united Ethiopian nation.

Meles had an appointment with destiny to become not only a peerless and exemplary leader bust also a compassionate one. He was a man with an iron will, which was also his undoing. He was quick to anger and intemperate in his disposition. He was unkind to those over whom he had total control. When he jailed Birtukan Midekssa in December 2008, he said, “there will never be an agreement with anybody to release Birtukan. Ever. Full stop. That’s a dead issue.” Birtukan had done nothing wrong. When he denied an incubator for the premature baby of internationally-acclaimed husband and wife journalists, Serkalem Fasil and Eskinder Nega, born in prison, he showed himself lacking in fundamental human decency. When he told American diplomats that “we will crush the opposition with all our might”, he revealed himself to be a ruthless man. Whenever it was in his power to show mercy, he chose vengeance. Like Mandela, by working with his adversaries, Meles could have made them his partners and eventually his friends. He missed his appointment with destiny.

Meles had an appointment with destiny to uplift the people of Ethiopia not only materially but also in their sense of self-dignity, personal autonomy and security. Meles believed “there is no direct relationship between economic growth and democracy historically or theoretically.” But there can be no sustainable development where people are denied basic rights and are forced to resort to violence, conflict and war. The essence of humanity is dignity. It is not all about filling the belly. It is true that a hungry man is an angry man, but a hungry man hungers not only for bread but also for freedom and self-dignity. The poorest of the poor and the richest of the rich crave dignity about all else, even food. Over a quarter of a century ago, a Western reporter covering the famine in Ethiopia was stunned to find out that the famine victims at a relief center did not fight over the little bit of food that was being distributed among them. He was deeply touched by the fact that the famine victims would rather die in quiet dignity than fight their fellow victims to get a piece of bread. But dignity comes in many forms: the freedom to speak, to think, to worship, to assemble, to petition for grievances, and most importantly, freedom from fear of one’s government. Meles believed man can live by bread alone and single-mindedly championed and worshipped brick and mortar projects. He missed his appointment with destiny.

Meles was not a forgiving or a tolerant man. He was inclined to pardon once in a while when it was convenient, but not to forgive. He held the pardon he gave out as the Sword of Damocles over the heads of his pardonees. He always let them know that he could revoke his pardon and throw them back in jail at will. He preferred confrontation to negotiation, imposition of his will to compromise. He had a need to win all the time and played zero sum games. Meles missed his appointment with destiny.

Meles was a man who never admitted making mistakes. It did not seem to occur to him that he could admit mistakes and ask forgiveness for deeds done in error or take actions to correct mistakes. He could never bring himself to utter the phrases “I made a mistake” or “I am sorry.” When asked about the deaths of some 200 protesters and wounding of nearly 800 in the aftermath of the 2005 elections, his response was numbingly bureaucratic, “I regret the deaths but these were not normal demonstrations. You don’t see hand grenades thrown at normal demonstrations.” As the evidence presented by Meles’ own Inquiry Commission showed, none of the demonstrators were armed let alone carry grenades. Meles never explained and never said he was sorry for those deaths. I was transformed from an indifferent armchair academic into a resolute human rights advocate because of those killings.

Following the killings of hundreds of people in Gambella, Meles issued a whitewash report. He denied the occurrence of any human rights violations in the Ogaden, Afar and Oromia regions. He often showed conduct unbecoming of a statesman whenever others pointed out his mistakes. When his opponents challenged his policies, he called them “dirty”, “mud dwellers”, “pompous egotists” and good-for-nothing “chaff” and “husk.” He humiliated and demeaned parliamentarians who challenged him with probing questions or disagreed with him. He characterized the work of the European Union election observers in the 2010 election as “garbage”. He described the Voice of America as the voice of genocide similar to one of the infamous Rwandan radio stations in the mid-1990s. He never apologized to those he had wronged.

Meles insisted on being right all the time. He did not seem to believe that he can learn from his mistakes and failures. Meles once acknowledged he may have made a mistake. Responding to a journalist’s question about Diaspora Ethiopians protesting his overseas visits, Meles said, “We may be at fault in some way. I am sorry. That maybe we didn’t communicate well enough to those Ethiopians living abroad what is happening, what we are doing here.” He missed his appointment with destiny by failing to effectively communicate with Diaspora Ethiopians.

Meles could have been an exemplary leader if he had upheld the rule of law. He often talked about “our Constitution” and the rule of law but rarely followed either. He was the object of relentless criticism by all international human rights organizations for disregarding Ethiopia’s Constitution and international human rights treaties and conventions. Every year, the U.S. State Department Human Rights Report documented massive human rights violations as did so many other international human rights organizations. But he was dismissive of such reports. For the Meles regime, human rights organizations were “highly frustrated and self-appointed kingmaker institutions in the U.S.” bent on “tarnishing the image of the country.” He missed his appointment with destiny.

Meles was a man with a mission. He confused mission with vision. He spoke of an “Ethiopian Renaissance” and some say he “wanted to restore Ethiopia to its former glory”. But many doubted his motives and even his true allegiance to the country. In his speech on the Ethiopian millennium in 2007, he lamented the fact that “at the dawn of the new millennium, ours is one of the poorest countries in the world.” But he was reassuring: “A thousand years from now, when Ethiopians gather to welcome the fourth millennium, they shall say the eve of the third millennium was the beginning of the end of the dark ages in Ethiopia.” Sadly, many before him have been driven by the same impulse to resurrect ancient glory. They failed in Berlin and Rome over one-half century ago and more recently in Tripoli and Bagdad. Though they built roads, dams and magnificent edifices and waged war, they were all consigned to the dustbin of history.

Our Appointment With Destiny

We the living now have a new appointment with destiny. But before we keep our appointment, we must face the truth and come to terms with Meles’ legacy. The truth is that the faults and vices we ascribe to Meles are not his alone. We have been known to hunger and lust for power, to put our partisan interests above the common good, to manifest dictatorial impulses even when we are out of power, trade principle for convenience and self-interest, behave with intolerance, become condemnatory instead of conciliatory, deny making mistakes and above all find every excuse not to say, “I am sorry” when we make mistakes. We cannot right Meles’ wrongs until we acknowledge our own.

Condemning the memory of Meles as we move forward will serve no purpose. It will only continue the tradition of grievance and victimhood and culture of antagonism. Meles’ legacy should not be that he continues to rule from grave. We must learn the right lessons from his 21-year rule and move forward to heal the open wounds of fear, loathing and antagonism. There is no need to perpetuate historic hatreds. We must strive for love, wisdom and compassion towards one another. Now that Meles has passed, we can all put Mandela’s shoes, put our noses to the grind stone and together build an Ethiopia on a solid foundation of the rule of law, respect for human rights and democracy. The question we now face is clear: Will we also miss our appointment with destiny?

Beginning earlier this year, I have been writing about “Ethiopia’s inevitable transition from dictatorship to democracy”. I have outlined various scenarios on what could happen during the transition. Today the dictatorship of one man in Ethiopia is over, but dictatorship itself is alive and well. To complete the transition to democracy and make our appointment with destiny, we must take resolute steps to begin a national dialogue for reconciliation. As we prepare for this dialogue, we must make the release of all political prisoners and repeal of the oppressive “anti-terrorism and civic society” laws job number one.

On the Road to Good Governance and Democracy

I have relentlessly chronicled the deeds and misdeeds of Meles Zenawi for some years now. I had nothing personal against the man. I never knew him. But I have followed and studied his politics, actions and speeches. I have disagreed with him on practically everything because I have been tunnel-visioned on human rights. My singular cause is human rights in Ethiopia. I got involved in Ethiopian human rights following the massacre of unarmed protesters in the aftermath of the 2005 elections. I have looked at Meles’ deeds and misdeeds through the prism of human rights. I am an ardent human rights advocate and if that be a fault, I proudly embrace it.

I believe Meles had an appointment with destiny to live and die as a hero and make the whole country his tomb. His epitaph could have recorded great deeds inscribed not on granite but enshrined in the hearts of his countrymen and women. As a human rights advocate, I am pained to think of Meles’ legacy in the dark vision of the victims of the 2005 massacres, the subhuman prisons that warehouse the hundreds of thousands of political prisoners, the courts which became political tools, the subversion of the rule of law and so on.

I have sought for some signs that Meles at least believed in human rights in the abstract. I shall give him the benefit of doubt that he did. In an interview with Al Jazeera in 2007, Meles said, “I’d hope that my legacy would be one of sustained and accelerated development that would pull Ethiopia out of the massive deep poverty that it was mired in, full and total stabilization of the country, radical improvements in terms of good governance and democracy. I’d hope by the time I retire, we’d have made significant strides in all of those in the future.” By the time of his death in 2012, the “radical improvements in terms of good governance and democracy” had seen a radical regression into tyranny and despotism. The “future” Meles spoke of is now. We should all work collectively to implement his aspirations for “radical improvements in terms of good governance and democracy” now. This is Meles’ legacy his surviving officials should acknowledge openly and work with others to implement as the ultimate tribute to Meles’ leadership. The “radical improvement in good governance and democracy” begins with the release of all political prisoners, repeal of antiterrorism and civil society and other oppressive laws and declaration of allegiance to the rule of law. As the Ethiopian new year is just around the corner, we can all begin afresh on the road to “radical improvements in good governance and democracy”.

I wish I would have been able to deliver a eulogy that celebrated Meles’ two-decade old tenure in power; to speak of a man who was a hero in life and in death; a man for whom men, women and children flooded the streets of their own free will to express heart felt sorrow and shed tears. I wish I could have spoken of a man who made his appointment with destiny and became a peerless and exemplary leader. The greatest homage I can pay Meles in death as one of his severest critics in life is to uphold and defend his vision of “radical improvements in terms of good governance and democracy” in Ethiopia.

Meles once told a journalist that “if Ethiopians thought he [was a dictator] I would not sleep at night. But I don’t believe they do.” But I am afraid the very last words Meles heard before he fell “asleep” were the words of a young Ethiopian journalist. In response to a question on whether he ever imagined he would be in power for so long, Meles was reflective: “That was clearly not what I expected. It’s happened. I don’t regret it but I just hope that, at the end of it all, it will have been worth it.” I sincerely hope it was all worth it for him.

Let others speak of Meles as a “visionary” leader, “an African leader of major historical significance” and write his glorious hagiography. I shall bid him farewell by paraphrasing Shakespeare in Julius Caesar.

Men at some time are masters of their fates:

The fault, dear Meles, is not in our stars,

But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

And so,

Friends, Ethiopians, countrymen and women, lend me your ears;

It is time to bury Meles, not to praise him.

The evil that men do lives after them;

The good is oft interred with their bones;

So let it be with Meles.

    Please let us not dwell over the farewell –just say g* *o H*ll!!!
    The reason what we have is ;80,000 youth soldiers+200 demonstrates…No…No…Not only those.;just because of ETHIOPIA and ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE.
    Any way death means the end of life. Death is something that can happen all of a sudden, or it may be due to some long time suffering. Death can occur any time as a result of an accident too. This is what makes it all the more undesirable. Death happens to everyone who is alive, at different points of time.
    We all make mistakes, but only the extremely self-esteemed among us can admit them. People around you know when you make a mistake, so do not kid yourself that you can constantly cover it up. So do yourself a favor by admitting your mistakes honestly, then getting on, and fixing the problem.Meles Zenawi missed a lot of chances to correct his mistakes,instead he killed a lot of people.History will tell us the truth soon,until that you can read my poetry.

    [[.. Meles believed “there is no direct relationship between economic growth and democracy historically or theoretically.” ... The essence of humanity is dignity. It is not all about filling the belly..]]

    It must be ONLY folks with easier life and those who live on public funds, “scholarships” utter such nonsense every-time they write stuff while their OWN “belly” is full.

    When Prof. Al talks about Democracy in South Africa or in our continent for that matter, is actually describing words, the definition to its procedures as opposed to substance. He is only celebrating the rituals through the motions but very little democracy in essence.

    There is little to show for ANC coming to power in improvement of economic or otherwise for the ordinary black person. Most blacks are poorer than in Apartheid. About 50% of black are unemployed but they are 80 % of the population. South Africa is one the most uequal society in the world. Average life expectancy at birth for blacks is LOWER by 13 years from 62 in 1990 to 49 in 2007. Over 60% or black South African are worse off than they were under aparthied and the list goes on.

    All this happened in spite of regular elections, multi party system and free press and all. You don’t have to be a genius to see there is a problem with Democracy in South Africa.

    South Africa is not the exception at all, take India who scores similar in standard “freedom indicators” to Democracies like the USA with regular elections & changes of government; In puplic services like access to education, health, clean water etc India scores similar or worse to failing states like Bangladesh. Why?

    The why? is what Meles answered at the end and absolutely didn’t make up “bed time stories” if you will, when he said,“there is no direct relationship between economic growth and democracy historically or theoretically.”

    It is just the TRUTH.

    However, he has also said Democracy is good for its own merits.

    Yes, Meles could have been our beloved leader, but unfortunately, Meles chose the evil route. The last 21 years is proof that Meles was an arrogant man that was filled with so much hate and animosity against Ethiopia and Ethiopians. I never wish death on anybody, but I’m one of 90 million Ethiopians that prayed to God to use His means to remove or stop dictator Meles from abusing his power and committing despicable crimes against innocent powerless Ethiopians. Finally, the prayers of the monks and the 90 million Ethiopians have been answered. I’m not thrilled about dictator Meles’s death, but I’m beyond thrilled that he is not around to abuse his power to abuse and kill more Ethiopians he hates the most.

It aimed to make we all Ethiopians such a plebs who are so docile for any abusive and oppressive order. It is to compel us to celebrate the greatness of a dead body of Meles who abused and oppressed us for such 2 decades over we Ethiopians. If not a matter of humanity to properly handle the death of such person to the contrary i do not see any reason to unreasonably force a certain nation to mourn the death of a certain racist looter corrupt mercenary leader’s dead body for such 2 weeks by challenging the emotions of the very oppressed abused and looted peoples of Ethiopia. Any way forcing Ethiopian what they do not believe by harassing and intimidation is part of the diabolical character assassination scheme to make Ethiopians accustomed to any sort of abusive and oppressive social order. አሁንም ጭምር መለስ ሞተውም እንኳን የኢትዮጵያን ህዝብ ያለፍላጎቱ እያስገደዱና በስሜቱ ጭምር እየመጡ ህዝብን በግድ አልቅስ እዘን ማለት ወያኔ ለኢትዮጵያ ህዝብ ያለውን ንቀትና ጥላቻ የሚያሳይ ነው፡፡

    TPLF has been aspiring for so long to thrive and survive not out of sustainable constructive enlightenment and consciousness of general events but rather the other way round out of destructive delusion, confusion and crisis. TPLF is still governed by its inherent sheer lies and even it wants to thrive and survive by creating such an abusive and confusing environment among Ethiopian society related to the death of Meles. And for me it is even amazing that TPLF wants to achieve revival and renaissance for its self on the death of its leader Meles by manipulating the emotions of Ethiopian on the death of Meles. And the general event following the death of Meles is very evident of this farce in that TPLF still wants to thrive and survive not out of sustainable constructive enlightenment and consciousness but rather out of destructive delusion, confusion and crisis. It is really such a very disgusting self-defeating disease and that is running amok that requires psychiatric attention also beyond the stereotypical political realm.አሁን ያለው አጠቃላይ የኢትዮጵያውያን ስሜት እጅግ ግራ የተገባና የተመሰቃቀለ እንደሆነ እገምታለሁኝ፡፡As is said it before there is a broad spectrum of mixed and confused feelings or emotions. And it is well known that human nature is mainly hardwired to emotions that rational thinking. And specifically when we come to we Ethiopian it seems that we are ,are very much of emotional than rational and that is why we see such a broad spectrum of mixed and confused feelings or emotions in Ethiopian society following the death of prime Minster Meles Zenawi. And as usual the incumbent TPLF is striving very hard beyond what is warranted even to exploit this broad-spectrum of mixed and confused feelings or emotions for its own selfish political gain or advantage as usual. Despite the fact that we have political showdowns, rivalry and conflict it is well known that because we are all mortal human beings, we have sympathy and compassion for any human being created in the image and likeness of God. And when it comes to the innocent Ethiopian society that is so compassionate then the death of Meles has created such an amazing sorrow among so many innocent Ethiopians, including myself. However the inherently ignorant nature of the incumbent TPLF regime, that fails to understand even basic human dynamism, is undeservedly and unnecessarily striving to gain political advantage out of the human emotions in a perverted manner.እንዴት ነው ነገሩ ጎበዝ ወያኔ ከመለስ ሞት ራሱን እንደገና ውስጥ መመርመርና ማስተካካል ሲገባው ጭራሽ የባሰውን የህዝብን ስሜት ወዳልሆነ አቅጣጫ በመምራት ጥረት ውስጥ ከመለስ ሞት ሌላ የማያዋጣና የማያዛልቅ ሌላ የፖለቲካ ትርፍ ለማግኘት መፍገምገሙ ይህ ሃይል ምን ያህል ይሉኝታና ህሊና የሌለው ከስህተቱ ለመማርም ፈፅሞ የማይችልና የማይፈልግ በSelf-Defeating ስሜትና በድንቁርና የሚመራ ስብስብ መሆኑን እየተረዳሁኝ ያለሁት፡፡የመለስ ሞት እንደ ሰብዓዊነታችንና እንደ ኢትዮጵያዊነታችን አብዛኞቻችንን ጤናማ ስሜት ያለንን ኢትዮጵውያንን ያሳዝናል በዚህ ምንም የሚያከራክር ነገር አይደለም፡፡ነገር ግን የመለስን ሞት ለሌላ የማያዋጣና የማያዛልቅ ሌላ የፖለቲካ ትርፍ ለማግኘት ሲል መፍገምገሙ ለምን አስፈለገ፡፡

The tragic unexpected death of Meles Zenawi is such an an opportunity where humanity unite us all Ethiopians despite our conflicts and differences but what TPLF is doing being ignorant of this human dynamism in a way that is contradictory in order to gain mere political advantage as usual is so arrogant ignorant and shameful. Ethiopians feel sorrow and express their feelings not because of such portrayed hoax merits of Meles but rather mainly because he is human and Ethiopian, which is out of sheer humanity. I myself share the environment in this sane sentiment because death such an extraordinary event which creates such an amazing feelings. So the ignorant and arrogant TPLF is so devoid of boundaries between humanity and dirty politics. Humanity and Emotions unite us all human beings irrespective of any secular differences we have but mere stereotypical ideology and politics usually divide us. TPLF as usual failed to understand and discern this reality. Even at this moment of time it is by far very advisable to temporarily sideline political issues and allow our humanity to share common feelings and emotions regarding the death of our leader Meles. And if stereotypical dirty politics have to take and control the stage then it is so bizarre and confusing that we can not share common human feelings/emotions in such events. The current situation run or handled by TPLF is so manipulative and abusive of human feelings/emotions. And in such manipulative and abusive conditions I am afraid that TPLF forces mothers, fathers and family of the dead Ethiopians during 1997 massacre by Meles Agazi forces in Addis Ababa to sympathetically mourn the death of Meles. As far as I understand the ignorant and arrogant TPLF usually does not want to take honesty and responsibility for any of its thoughts and actions in that it is in some sort of perpetual self-defeating vicious-circle. So TPLF please get calm and become emotionally conscious in addition to your stereotypical dirty politics. As a human being we are all sorry for the death of Meles but that is not Ethiopians fault.
    So please at least temporarily throw away your ignorant and arrogant dirty politics and then allow us to share the sadness of the environment in a sane manner. Meles is dead but his system is well alive and I wish the reverse scenario in that Meles is alive Ethiopia is alive and his system to become dead. And I think that has been what the majority of innocent Ethiopians have been aspiring for so long. However, TPLF seems to focus on the first one in that Meles is dead but his system is well alive scenario just for its own selfish motive likened to “የነብርን ጅራት አይዙም ከያዙም አይለቁም::”Any way time will tell us every thing.በድጋሚ ወያኔዎች ሆይ እባካችሁን ለአቶ መለስ ጥሩም ሰሩ መጥፎ ለጊዜው እንተወውና ነገር ግን እኛ አሁን በዚህ ወቅት የሚሰማንን ንፁህ ያልተበረዘ ያልተከለስ የሰብዓዊነትና የኢትዮጵያዊነት የዜግነት ሀዘናችንን እንድናዝን በሸፍጥ የተሞላና የቆሸሸ የተለመደውን ፖለቲካችሁን ለጊዜውም ቢሆን ተወት አድርጉት፡፡ወደማይቀረው አለም የምትሄደው የራሳቸው የአቶ መለስ ነፍስ ለአቶ መለስ ብላችሁ ሳይሆን በዋናነት ለራሳችሁ የፖለቲካ ትርፍ ስትሉ ብቻ አሁን እያደረጋችሁት ባለው ነገር የምትበሳጭና የምታዝን ይመስለኛል፡፡አቶ መለስም የኢትዮጵያን ህዝብና ትውልዱን በቁሙ የሞተ እንዲሆን አድርገውታልና ህዝቡን እየቀሰቀሳችሁ በግድ እንዲያለቅስ ስታስገድዱት ምናልባትም የሚያለቅሰው ስለመለስ ብቻ ሳይሆን ስለራሱ የቁም ሞት ጭምር እያሰበ ሊሆን ይችላል፡፡ለሁሉም ጊዜ አለው እንደተባለው እውነትና ንጋት እያደር ነውና እውነትም በሸፍጥና በግርግር ሁካታ ተሸፋፍኖ አይቀርምና ሁሉም ነገር ጊዜውን ጠብቆ በጊዜው ሰሌዳ መሰረት ይገለጣል፡፡ለአቶ መለስ ሞተውም ጭምር ይህ አይነት ከንቱ ሽንገላና ከንቱ ውዳሴ የሚጠቅማቸውና የሚመቻቸው ከሆነ ይሁና ከማለት በቀር ምን እንላለን፡፡በስተመጨረሻም ለአቶ መለስ ዜናዊ ቤተሰቦችና ዘመዶች እግዚአብሄር መፅናናትን ይስጥልን፡፡

    Who do you suggest the next dictator should be, who can starve more than 8 million people and bit the midget Meles dictatorship long held record? His departure have already sent a shock wave to his supporters and the country is in a standstill for over two months for his farewell to hell. With that alone, the electoral system is by far better than dictatorship that you are yearning about to justify discrimination by ethnicity in Ethiopia.

    Well said!!! Mr. Meles had had unmatched opportunity as a leader whose history could have been written as someone whose spoils included marshaling a system wherein the right of the individual is held supreme. When he marched into Addis in 1991 there was nothing standing between him and Bill of Rights of the individual. He squandered that chance as the time goes on. USA is successfully fighting a sworn enemy of terrorism not by feasting on the rights of the individual but by perpetuating and respecting such inalienable rights. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Charlie Crist, Rachel Maddow, Chris Mathew and others like them were never bothered by FBI or any other government agencies for something they said or wrote. But it seemed that the more Meles read some positive remarks about him in the West the more that made him feel untouchable. Then he busied himself by tinkering around an idea of testing the West in the areas of human rights. The resurgence of extremism in Somalia and Arabian Peninsula was taken by him as windfall and he took advantage of it to the hilt. He grew so arrogant that he might have thought he was going to stay around and in power for many more years and possibly decades to come. He became more and more despotic. He never bothered about succession. Then all of a sudden… Bam!!! He was going in less than a month. The same can be said about his predecessors. Mengistu even had more chance to play an instrumental role in bringing a new dawn to our country. The nationalist fronts were very small and utterly very weak. ELF, EPLF, EPRP and EDU were miniscule organizations with no more than a few hundred members each. But he chose to use a well organized military muscle he inherited to settle disputes. He opted for war instead of diplomacy. It did not take him more than 3 months after he entered the palace to execute 60 prisoners without a fair and open trial. He got away with that and he did not look back from then onward. He killed until the day he fled like a rabbit. I think Meles and Mengistu should be lessons to whoever we are going to see next. He/she is presented with unprecedented opportunity to do what should always be done. Respect the right of the individual!!! That is where rights will rein in over evil. He/she will be much better protected when the rights of the individual are protected. That was why Our Good Ole USA never lost a battle during the cold war or in the war against terrorism. Not one. I say take a lesson to whoever is the successor of Meles.
