There is no need for anger or furstration and other negative attitudes. Question ''What do you wish for our country with in the coming 10-20 years ?'' Legese Answers '' My wish and hope with in the coming 10 years is that ALLL Ethiopians would be able to eat three times per day''. I guess it is a pretty fair respond, by then 36 years old, PM Legese. He was asked about his hope for his country and he stated his hope and wishs. I see no mistake in wish and hope. Be smart learn your own language and even develope a new and decent language. Insulting each other and hateful words invite only violence,chaos and will indeed brings about a seedling of bitterness which lasts in blood bath sooner or latter. Who wishs to see that ?

Hahahahaha... why people are so surprised that Meless is still in power. He already made it clear that He'll remain in power in bold language and will remain indefinetely. Like Putin, he might be off the scene from the first raw and I bet He'll be back...

To mister apologist at [03cc5c9a]. You are stating Ethiopia's lack of democracy as a fact that Meles can do nothing about. All the long mumbo-jumbo you typed can be summarized as Ethiopians do not need democracy! How sad! How old are you? The strange part may be you live in the west, enjoying democratic rights. How about stating the truth, that you will kill people to stay in power or do anything and everything to maintain power. One other thing, all this development you talk about, who does it benefit? The man on the road in Ethiopia is hungrier today than ever before. Hunger is no more a seasonal fact but a daily occurrence. If you are one of those with a cross stamped to your forehead, I will understand you! If you are not, you have demonstrably lost your brain.

For me the opposition has no alternative idea of ruling. They are not democrat by themselves but demand Meles to be democrat.

He made mistakes but overall he is a good leader.

F**k the bureaucratic Amahras, who want to take power in the name of unity. We don't need to go back to 1920's.

Call him a dictator for all you like but the fact is Meles has changed Ethiopia and his name will be written in history as the person who started the renascence of Ethiopia. Many people have short memories but I remember vividly when 1 million fellow citizens perished in 1984 due to famine. Today I can confidently say we will never see that again, thanks in part to Meles’s leadership. Ethiopia has seen an amazing improvement and growth rate never witnessed in its 3,000 long years history. In just 20 years, every school children can now go to school from just 18%, nearly 87% have access to some sort of health service from just 9%, etc…

On every level – economically, militarily and diplomatically – Ethiopia is building its power on the continent. This is a fact no one can cry and change.

But I agree Meles is not a democrat. One has to give credit to Meles for not being delusional. He admits that he is not a democratic leader and the country is not a democracy yet. Most people might not like that but that is the reality. Ethiopia in the modern era has not experienced democracy. It was run by an autocratic king and feudal system till 1974 followed by totalitarian communist regime. So Meles and his administration are a logical follow-up. One can not run before walking first. Democracy in Ethiopia has to follow logical steps for it to be achieved.
Secondly if one has to grade Meles as a person for his Rule. He will get a B minus. Not a perfect regime, mistakes have been made. But which government does not make mistakes? Ethiopia is located among one of the most dangerous and unstable neighbourhoods in the world. So considering what has happened in Sudan, South Sudan, Yemen, Eritrea and the anarchy in Somalia. Meles has steadied Ethiopia and made great strides in trying to reduce extreme poverty that affects large percentage of the population. The real question is that while that being a good achievement it needs to be taken forward. The rule of law, civil society, diversity of views and ideas are the cornerstone of any future democratic state. I do no think Meles and his generation can implement this. This needs generational change and for sure young population of Ethiopia is up to the task. It is the task they will and should be entrusted with in the coming decades.
Thirdly let us deal with the audiences, critics and the populace Meles needs to please or administer over. The western audience (donor nations, NGO, International organisations) are his easiest task. He is clever enough to deal with their criticism and arguments. He can use irony and hypocrisy to point out flaws in their thinking. I am sure he does. He does need to be bombastic and no need to.
The Ethiopian in Diaspora are a thorn. Some are genuinely well educated and think best for their country. In dealing with them he displays insecurity, while the smart move will be to cooperate with them to advance Ethiopia’s cause. The Mengistu apologist and the other rabble rousers in Diaspora are not useful in any sense. If he is severe with them, it is understandable. Their talk of democracy and human rights is nothing but empty rhetoric.
His crucial audience he needs to worry about are 80 Million plus Ethiopians in Ethiopia. The demands for rule of law, good governance, less corruption, income distribution, respect for human rights, food security and national security. In my opinion an Arab spring in Ethiopia is not likely, the conditions do not exist for that. The Arab spring had one thing in common in those countries, large urbanized unemployed youth. Ethiopia is one of the least urbanized societies in the world. 14-18% lives in the urban areas, while more than 80% are rural dwellers. It is in these rural areas where the extreme poverty is most acute. 29 million Ethiopians live under extreme poverty.
I think Meles has it spot on when he say you can not please everyone. His administration main focus has to be in bringing those 29 million Ethiopians out of extreme poverty. I think all reports from Ethiopian government or International insertions attest that is happening. Great strides have been made in achieving UN millennium development goals and should be applauded. The urban population is a minority in Ethiopia so might have to be patient and Meles ignores them at his peril. Their concern needs to be dealt with too. Inflation is rampant and needs to be brought down. Even if it means opening the market to the likes of Wal-Mart. True competition will bring down the price of basic consumables.
In conclusion, it is not an enviable job to administer a complex country like Ethiopia. It is hard juggling act, for most parts damned if you do and damned if you do not. So the report card for administration reads 6/10. Steady performance, but capable of improving in a lot of ways.
