    Don’t worry! I am very confident with Mr. Hailemariam. He can do his best soon and becomes a great leader.
    Meles was a great leader. May God rest his soul in peace and give his family all strength they need to overcome this great loss.

    I heard that acting PM Hailemariam Desalegn is a devoted Christian who deeply believes in God. May God help him get the strength to govern over 85 million people. Please pray for the leaders of Ethiopia to make the right decisions at this difficult time.

    When it comes to experience, Obama, George W. Bush and others never had experience when they became presidents. So, God has a purpose why Hailemariam was chosen to become a deputy PM by Meles Zenawi.
