While in the plane flying from New York and after leaving Pittsburgh, Azeb’s anger did not let up. She was heard calling Meles “shermuta,” and hurling other insults.

The Ethiopian Review Intelligence Unit (IU) has now learned from sources inside Woyanne that Azeb was angry after she heard about a meeting between Meles and Ethiopian supermodel Liya Kebede in New York.

Meles met Liya Kebede through her husband, Kassy Kebede, who is a hedge-fund manager and investment consultant in New York. Kassy reportedly manages multimillion-dollar investment portfolios for Meles, Azeb and other members of the Woyanne junta. Meles is currently 11th richest head of government in the world with an estimated networth of $1.2 billion.
