Meles Zenawi's Body Arrives in Ethiopia



August 22, 2012 —Meles Zenawi's body landed in Bole Airport at around 10:00pm local time, where a large crowd of senior officials, military officers, priests and supporters gathered to pay tribute to the late prime minister.

The coffin of Meles was wrapped with the Ethiopian flag and escorted to the National Palace through congested traffic by a dozen caravan of SUVs.

Thousands of supporters held candles and lined up the procession route in Addis Ababa to mourn in an ostentatious display of grief, that some observers noted, eerily resembled that of North Korean funeral procession.

Senior officials, including the acting Prime Minister, Hailemariam Desalegn, were visibly seen weeping for their late comrade. Meles' wife, Azeb Mesfin, wailed and ran around in distress before she was restrained by her 27-year-old daughter, Semhal Meles.

The former guerrilla fighter and long-ruling despot was receiving treatment from an unspecified illness in Brussels, before succumbing to an infection and passing away on Monday night, state-run media reported.

Government officials said they were in frequent talks with Meles until five days ago, when his health rapidly deteriorated and it became apparent that he was no longer going to survive.

In the coming days, the ruling party plans to gather to decide who the deputy PM and foreign minister will be; both positions that were formerly held by the acting PM.

Do you think the Jew people would have a sympathy on the
death of Hitler? Do you think the people of Libya would have a sympathy on the
death of Gaddaffi? So how come the people of Ethiopia would have a sympathy on
the death of Zenawi who was responsible for the death of thousands of innocent
Ethiopians? Regardless of your wishful thinking Meles Zenawi is a murderer who
had so many bloods on his hand. Let him burn in hell along with Hitler &
Gaddafi for evil crimes that he committed against humanity.

Haha....The man is a legend and everybody knows it....you just have to stop hating especially Habtom.....The good thing is that God loves him so much that he didnt have to go through the usual Ethiopian shit....he is lucky that he will be sent of with his dignity and pride intact. And all of you stupid international so called journalists, nothing is going to happen to Ethiopia, we are as strong as it gets!!!!! Despite the existance of the stupid diaspora, all is well with the unity and nationalism of Ethiopians. Those people who are living a comfortable lives all around the world are just using this as an Excuse to stay out of the some how hard life in Ethiopia.....we dont care if they do so, but Ethiopia is not as bad as you all say....Ethiopia is doign better and will keep on doing better....
There are those of us who would like to mourne and please some Ethiopian Idiots out there dont fall for the fuel that is being given to you by the international media....we are goign to be just fine....Long live Melese zenawi he is a True hero and all the best for his kids and his wife! He surely has sacrified his life for the bettermetn of Ethiopia.....only fools could denay that and one last thing BERHANU NEGA was never the Mayor of ADDIS ABABA stop spreading lies

I read some of the comments above and I can only remember one quote: never under estimate the power of human stupidity! All I can say is that anyone and everyone of you haters are not hating on an individual here but on a great nation which it this nation could speak would tell you it was ashamed to have citizens like you who are actually working to kill it. Meles zenawi was is and always will be a hero championed in the lives of every Ethiopian. May his great soul finally rest in peace.
