    I’m so happy to hear that pm Melese’s health condition is very stable and soon he will get back to his office. I’m very thankfull for all his efforts, during and after the struggle, and his brilliant leadership. I’m neither a partymember nor a supporter. As an ordinary citizen I admire, respect and honoured pm Melese, who leads the country towards the right direction, though there are so many things still to do.
    God bless Ethiopia!

    I heard he has an issue of “brain dead”. EPRDF is just keeping it secret till they figure out who is going to replace him. Well he was smart, but never used it on a good way for Ethiopian citizens. As we all know road and building can not feed people. So I find it hard to say “Rest in peace” as well as “Screw him”…either way I hope God will punish him on his own way at least for the innocent citizens he abuse.
