The Fingerprints of Meles Zenawi (Video)

Dec. 15, 2012

The visionary leader Meles Zenawi will always be remembered by the people of Ethiopia

Meles Zenawi was here, living here with us, vivid here with us and he is unforgettable: It has been almost four months weeks since his death. His death was a very big loss in every region in Ethiopia. Meles Zenawi was a philosopher, a focused leader, an outstanding visionary, a diplomat, a unifier. He was quite possibly the best politician in the world; he dedicated his life to bring Ethiopia out of poverty, and had fought against the odds to bring about one Ethiopia that is based on cooperation, love and respect among all cultures in Ethiopia.

Meles Zenawi was the best leader ever seen in Ethiopian history. His leadership was recognized regionally and internationally and will continue as one of our generation’s visionaries and a role model leader for all African children.

Meles Zenawi has left a legacy of accomplishments on environmental matters, particularly regarding climate change, the green economy, improved health care, improved education, and good democracy in Ethiopia. Meles Zenawi contributed to leading Africa’s active engagement in the UN climate change negotiations in his role as a chairman.

He was a father of development, a mother of democracy government, a sister and brother of all young people in Ethiopia; he was a link between all ethnic groups of Ethiopia. His death continues to hit all local communities hard in Ethiopia. The loss of our hero PM Meles Zenawi has touched every Ethiopian.

Let’s us get united and continue realizing his dreams. May his soul RIP.
