    This is not surprising. He was a mercenary and a sold soul capable to do whatever he is told to do by Westerns.

    No big deal

    We lost the true Ethiopian who stand for poor or rich, Northerner or Southerner, Easterner or Westerner, Rurals or Urbans, Islam or Christian, etc… He never stands for the neft who used to be the leaches, the blood suckers of all Ethiopians who are dreaming and trying to hold power like Sadam Hussein, or Gadhafi, or Joseph Stalin, or Mussolini, etc… The true Ethiopian man who fought for our freedom, who stood up for our identity and dignity of all Ethiopians and the true hero who is trying to freed us from our hunger history. Instead of Meles I wish all 100000 the DC useless dwellers including Abebe Gelaw and Alemayehu Cholew dies. Bunch of stupid greed chauvinists survives and Meles sacrificing for them? What a stupid world is this? Mot lene Meles, It should not be for you! MELSES, If Possible you come back and I am happy to replace you there where you went?
    Mot lenezia tenquay debelo lebash le wushet politikegnoch. Ethiopia and Ethiopian never forget Meles and we are here on this earth, while we are here nobody will defeat us forget the diaspora Taxi drivers par time politicians. We are the true guard of Meles’s job.

      Yes ,melese was a killer and brutalized leader. He killed a thousand people and black mailed the country. Hes is ecceteric and adamant. he was amoral and animosity leader.He always maligned to foreign leader. He sold Ethiopian land to foreigner and he was against freedom of people and against democracy. Thanks the lord.He is not notable person,
      ofcourse we never forget his bad action forever. History is registored the first leader who sold the benefite of the country for abroad and most Ethiopian people animosity him.melese was the one worest and animosity leader in the world.thank you you guys strugle for freedom and democracy against TPLF

  8. brattw says:

    THEY MISSED THE BUTCHER MELES. let them follow him to his grave. he is no more. one cancer removed from the face of the earth.

  9. kidi says:

    what does that tell you? that means the West does not give a hoot for the lives that purished under his adminstration. he killed so many young Ethiopian who were cable of leading the country out of poverty but yet he death is morn by them. But we said his death has made the world a better place. His death has made Ethiopian future a little bright and we said yes he is dead and we wish him to burn in hell and we hope the rest his hodam bandas follow him. CNN can not speak for Ethiopian people! Ethiopians are happy that blood sucker child killer meles is gone forever!

  13. Solomon says:

    I never thought I would say thanks to Awramba. Well, thanks for this CNN link. PM Meles was indeed the most notable and extraordinary person the World lost in 2012. Those of you who jump up and down with denial and delusion, just get your f****k soul, open your blind eye, wake your dead brain and swallow the CNN fact in your face. Meles’s loss was indeed the saddest moment of 2012.

  14. Ted says:

    Come on CNN!
    Yes Meles was the posterboy for the make believe democracy the US has been working so hard towards. Meles was not a strong man. He was the butcher of Addis, as Ethiopians call him, who killed thousands and imprisoned tens of thousands. He made the US policy the laughing stock who believed and bought into his fake personality. Ask thousands of Ethiopians first before you report such outrageous remarks on the “greatness” of Meles.

  15. True Ethiopian says:

    Indeed, he was the greatest leader we as Ethiopians and as Africans lost in 2012. He devoted his entire life and time for the equality of our people and development of our nation. He ignited the economy of our nation to grow double digit year after year for the last eight years. Under his administration, more than 20 new universities created and thousands health clinics, elementary and high schools opened all over our countries. He was brave enough than any other previous leader of Ethiopia to develop 6000mw hydro electric dam along the Nile river. He was really unstoppable visionary leader which created and left behind development plans which can be useful for many decades to come. I know few people hate him so much because he does not belong to their ethnic group. They live in USA where individual is respected and loved by what he/she does not by his/ origin, but what I do not understand is that why they have never learned and fix their brain. However, I would like to tell this, he died four months ago but his legacy and influence has been and will be in the hearts of million Ethiopians. His amazing work and life journey was recorded and written in history books and will be remembered forever.

  16. Workamaw says:

    Yes, Meles will be missed by the G7 as he was the only beggar self-appointed leader, whose survival was entirely dependent on their constant handout, and his presence in their meetings was considered like the presence of a loyal dog/puppy. As long as the puppy barks on passers by like Al Shabab, he was sure to get the crumbs he needed for his survival and a little more. He was hopeful that he would one day start enjoying the wealth he stashed in foreign banks. His calculations were wrong as usual: he died in his zoo-cage, where he confined himself for 21 years. Meles the puppy has never lived a life as he was not the real puppy he was supposed to be. He was a wild dog just like his friends at Arat Kilo. Good riddance!

  17. Oromo says:

    All these elegant/thriving business are owned and operated by TPLF and its stooges and also propagated by their New-masters. Both Chines and TPLF exploiting, occupying Oromia, and the rightful citizens (indigenes) Oromo people are marginalizes or anguished in prison cell across the nation for the last 21 years. There will not permanent peace or prosperity you and your supporter in the horn, time shall tell. And the outcome will be regrettable for generations to come!

  18. Seble says:

    well take this way: Blair and Bush called him the african man of good governance and as a gift, they chose him to be the african representant for climate change where meles graciously betrayed African countries…he was a puppet to fullfill the desiderata of the most 2 powerful nation on earth…we all know in history, UK has played vital poisoning role in african history during colonization , South Africa being the worse of our nightmare…now they do it with strategy and in exchange the african dictators are reassured to stay in power…but that day you’re no longer needed, they just see your country with collapse and they will say they can’t interfere: see Egypt, Tunisia etc…now if they don’t select meles, who will do the continuation of their work in Somalia, Eritrea etc…right now, they have found a good dog in the eyes of Homer Dummy Simpson Dessalegne! He is happily going to Eritrea…as USA will do their best to calm down the horn of africa at any cost…who cares of Abune Petros, Menelik , Giorgis in west??? they remind them their big failure actually…people wake uuuuuuuuuuuuup!

  19. Abrham says:

    What’s the misinformed Erin Burnett is gonna say about this. Poor Erin.

  20. Muller says:

    Not only CNN who mentioned our Ex-PM meles as notable person but also

    I really miss him alot and I wish I would see him as ordinary person to perish us with his experience and knowledge.

  21. Tezebet says:

    Western perspective yes he might be a visionary leader, however as a citizen of Ethiopian he is a murderer, he is not democrat even in 3rd world standard… he is not deferent from Mugabe Zimbabwe, Kim of North Korea, or Iranian Ahemd… so whatever way the west median can pent him my people and I we know who the true Zenwai was. I am glad he went his grave before he do more harm to that country, the only thing I feel sad is he did not get what he deserve being hang in front of Ethiopian people for the crime he did… The hypocrisy of western is the source of the war everywhere.
