Is Aiga Forum writing Meles’ obituary?

Bye, Bye Meles?

July 15, 2012

Aiga Forum, the website closely associated with Ethiopia’s intelligence services, just posted an emotional, tear-soaked, braggadocio-filled piece that appears to be the obituary of Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi.

The article titled “Meles ad Infinitum” was penned by someone using the pseudonym “Aesop.”  Aesop, incidentally, is the same author who wrote another piece a week ago calling Ethiopian Muslims mosquitoes.  That article was a prelude to the government crackdown on Ethiopian Muslims this past Friday.

In a thinly-veiled farewell to the best known son of Adwa who went on to terrorize  the nation of 90-million for the last twenty-one years, the author argues that Zenawi should be remembered for what he accomplished in “praxis” as as well as his one-time promise to step down peacefully.
