The biggest mistake Hailesilase made was, to allow Tigray region governed by Tigres, in a way Tigray region was semi-autonomous, for so long Tigres had been plotting.

The same goes to Welega region, Menelik never ruled Welega directly, Welega was governed by native Oromos but they paid Gibbir to Menelik. During Hailesilasie christian missionaries were directed to Welega areas, they were not assimilated, this part of Oromos were the main drive behind oromo politics.

both regions should had been assimilated properly, they were given unfair advantage, now both are trying to destroy the existence of the nation.

The king did many bad things but in comparison with Derg and Woyane, he was by far better. There is no leader like Hailesilasie who modernized Ethiopia massively, from Sarr-bet to modern European buildings, still the same buildings are serving as national bank, Mezegaja bet, Tikur Ambessa hospital still number one, Ethiopian airlines, etc even so many institutions were established during the king, woyane converted most of the colleges and research academies into universities, basically just renamed them university. Dedebit Woyanes are so illiterate, they think that changing names can bring prosperity, they think that counting the number of university campuses can improve the quality of education, it does not matter whether the building is named university or college, it is the quality of the teaching and the qualification that matters.

He was the best man for ETHIOPIA and AFRICA, but the devil derg overthrew the Emperor for the sake of authority and being ignorant. and look what happened now to the country the derg couldn't do better than Hileselassie and thrown up by these worst bandas. now the country is in disaster.
