    These guys are crazy. Why do we need a foundation for a tribal college drop out who left behind a bunch of communists and tribal cadres. People like Dr Tewodros need to come forward and transform EPRDF in to a more tolerant party where there is a chance for non radical members of the opposition such as Birtukan. If there is a legacy for Meles, it is that he gave us a landlocked country. Let his cadres do what ever they want…true historians will revise it in due time.

    • Tazabiw says:

      Dear Tilahun,
      Do u change u’r mind if I respectfully remained U That Meles had two masters degree one in political science and the other masters in business administration. And he dropped out of medical school not because he was incapable but he had a different dream which u can definitely disagree.
      Meles didn’t made us a land locked country. Two days before WOYANE took Addis Ababa in control Eritrea(including ports) was liberated by Shabeia .So even though I completely agree with you in critics we should not start by twisting facts.
      Enjoy your day.

      • Selamu Yibejal says:

        Tazabiw – granted Meles, if chose otherwise would have gotten a well deserved PhD(s)…he is capable of that….

        However, I’m not sure of his dreams – it definitely is not what his supporters and cadres are trying to make us believe. People in the TPLF leadership who are now independent bring a different picture of Meles. Have you read his book titled ‘Eritrean struggle from where to where?” which is translated into Amharic from Tigrigna? It always amazes me how a Tigrayan separatist writes about Eritrean struggle. It would be acceptable if he was a historian (academia). Besides, not even for a single time was he seen representing strongly Ethiopian interest against Eritrea. Even his arguments about the land given to Sudan makes him look like he was a lawyer for the Sudanese.
        The only one time BIG mistake he made against Eritreans is when he said ‘We can evict Eritreans on the ground of the color of their eyes’. Now this is the Meles people try to make look LARGER THAN LIFE ????? Give me a break.

        If the previous regimes (which are much more patriotic than T{PLF/Meles) got the same amount of money as foreign aid –they would have built many more roads, and dams than what we see now!

        Independent and honest HISTORIANS will right his legacy when the time comes which will include genocide and gross human rights violations.
        By the way, people are still in jail which he incarcerated while alive. Their justice and the blood of those innocent lives lost – would make his time in the 2nd LIFE miserable – he may even try to divide the dead along ethnic lines – with his dubious tricks and oratory!

        • Goraw says:

          Good.You did not tell us where he bought those degrees from.Did you guys bought it from the same place?.Samora also has One.But he is a total idiot.Meles is also an idiot.If he did not kill professor Asrat he would have been alive now.

      • Aradaw says:

        Imperial Halie Selassie had a foundation and we know what happened to it. Foundations with a true history and legacy will live long. With history’s judgement Melese’s Foundation will have a very short period of time before its demise. History is cruel to falsehood and manipulation.

  2. Listing Collected Degree (PhD) After his/her Name Resulted In Ridiculous Case of Intellectual, Ideological, Political Correctness says:

    Are You a Chee-Hippo or a Hippo?

    Professor Alemayehu G/Maria Said, “you are a Chee-Hippo, if you believe a person’s value is determined not by the collection of degrees listed after his/her name…”

    Aleka Gebrehana Said, Listing Collected Degree (PhD) After his/her Name Resulted In Ridiculous Case of Intellectual, Ideological, Political Correctness

    None of us expect a life where we will never be offended or sheltered from conflict or hurt feelings. However, many self-appointed saviors from Academia (Teklu Abate, PhD) are trying to make this a reality, through aggressive speech codes, boring articles with quotations from famous people and literature, legal rulings and corporate policies,…

    Intellectual, Ideological, and Political Correctness originally flowered in academia and spread like a virus through the government and corporate worlds. It has devolved into a tyranny of the most offended person in the room.

    Intellectual, Ideological, Political Correctness complaints now range from the sublime to the ridiculous, and they are stifling the honest assessment, and debate, of issues in our lives.

    Damn proud to be a Chee-Hippo!

    Wey gud! Wey Phd! Majority Ethiopian supports the foundation, few Dergists , political extremists, haters of Tigrians…! Even the PhDs are soaked in a hate politics!

    Anyways, as usual opposing anything is the culture of the extremist diaspora ! But nothing else ! The best way is to just ignore the nonsense analyses of the extremist diaspora !

    • Mario Denkoro says:

      For stupid like you PhD means alubalta. PhD is not a gift from dedebit chaka as you might think. Please atleast have respect and give value for education.

    Where is meles zenawie these days? Oh I forgot, he is rotting underground . My bad

  5. Mario says:

    Dude

    Everybody finally dies! I & you are going to go to the under ground in our turns! It’s just a natural process for everyone! The difference is: you & I are going to die just to be forgotten forever, but Meles’ ideas will live for decades to come & you will hear his name all your life , you can’t stop history!

    A leader who can change a country comes from some corner of a country! Abraham Lincoln , John F Kennedy, Mao … Atse Tedros…Came from one corner of their respective countries & they changed their country for good ! Likewise , Meles came from a small & poor town in northern Ethiopia & changed Ethiopia for good! Therefore , Meles had put development plans for the next 30 years at least & he is going to lead you for many years to come!

  7. Dude says:

    Oh Mario the woyane barking dog
    We will all be gone in due time. But I will go with a very clear conscious knowing that I have no blood of my people on my hands. Meles however has spilled a lot of my fellow ethiopian’s blood. Now that I’ve is gone, I happen to know where he is at now! He is burning in hell baby. Burn baby burn! That son of a female dog!

    By the way, what ideas of this woyane is going to be remembered for ever? Please list em here. I could not identify any.

  9. Mario says:

    Dude

    It is a struggle to shape Ethiopia in to better position , therefore , blood always spilled in the process of struggle! I believe Meles is the most humble leader Ethiopia ever had! Remember your Mengitstu, Haileselassie ….? Mangistu mow people in front of the public eye in a day light! Haileselassie bombed Tigrian in a day light using British air forces station in its colony , Yemen! As a result thousands of Tigrian died at the end of 2nd world war! The struggle that that started 38 years ago is a continuation of the first Woyane ! Haileselassie killed Ethiopia’s heroes like Belai zeleke, Ras Seyoum & others just for his power hunger! Minilik had sold Tigrians land for Fascist Italy to weaken Tigrian & so much other crimes!

    In my opinion, Meles is siting in heaven for his prize of freeing Oromos whom you used to call Gimatam on their own country! Meles had freed these you used to call Tifram, shiritam,qmalam, shemane, Semay amd yelew Islam ager yelew …. & many more! Meles united the Amara people into one kilil & so they don’t call each other like tifram,shinfla, Buda, shemane ….! Free at last !

    The reality here isn’t how much you brag or hate… But the people are free to govern themselves & no one will ever take their freedom that they enshrined with the help of the struggle that Meles led! Whatever you say , the job is already done! The rule of law had prevailed in Ethiopia , therefore everybody has to follow the rule of law!

  10. Dude says:

    Mario Mario Mario
    It is vey sad to hear u bark even more to defend the dead tyrant. May he burn in hell!
    Ethios are more divided along ethnic line, more ppl are being displaced from heir ancestral land, more ppl lack basic needs , more ppl are in prison , more ppl can’t even get one meal a day, etc etc etc etc ……….
    Please list few of your woyane accomplishments
    Down with woyane and its supports

  11. Mario says:

    Dude

    Dreaming is free anyways! I said Meles’ plan & vision is going to lead Ethiopia for decades to come ! Talking back to back isn’t going to help you ! Why don’t you just wait & see! Why are you using foul words though? We are just talking! I have a right to opine & you do the same! Cool down & say your opinion! Don’t act in uncivilized way!

    The suffering of Ethiopian is caused by the maladminidtration of 100 years before 1991! What EPRDFites are doing is : solving the problems left unsolved since minilik! You are trying to defend the past mistakes just for no avail!

    Take it easy though!

    MELES ZENAWI AMBESAW JEGNA YE ETHIOPIA LIJ. YOU ARE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS MINDS AND IN EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES.
    He will always be remembered for changing the course of history for the better for the country he gave his life for. Most of us might not understand It yet. But every sleepless night he spent, every rough politics he went through, every opposition he faced with patience etc…… is more than what any king had done for Ethiopia. For me he is the number one leader of Ethiopia. God bless you MELES. I pray to God that this Foundation is Successful. Egziabhet yibarikih Meles. We love you, we looooove you so much.

  13. Dude says:

    Meles zenawi should be completely decomposed by now. just imagine all the worms and underground insects that are feeding on him! A beautiful thing to watch. But then again, they are probably chewing his ass and spiting right back out cus he is just a nasty son of a female dog!

    • Mahlet Asefa says:

      @Dude where are your parents?
      MELED ZENAWI Foundation is lounched. Great African leaders spoke of his Greatness his devotion dedication to His country his continent and his world. This foundation is a way for him to live eternal life. He will live Forever. Trust me his hard tough life he led for the sake of his people will be Celebrated everyday. He will always be a topic everywhere both with his supporters as well as his oponents. So give it up. MELES is winning and his Legacy is being Echoed by all great women and men.God bless him.
