Former First Lady Azeb Mesfin leaves Palace
The widow of the former Ethiopian Prime Minister Azeb Mesfin has left the Ethiopian National Palace at the end of last week, local sources and press reported today (24 October 2012). It has been reported that the widow had refused to vacate the Palace forcing the new Prime Minister Hailemariam to commute to his Office everyday from his home . Azeb moved into a residence that used to house the ruling EPRDF’s officials and ministers in the past.
“The government has given Mrs Azeb and her children the option of three residential villas in Addis Ababa but she is said to have refused to even visit any out of her own security concerns.” the Kenyan Daily Nation reported last week.
