Rwanda: Kagame Honors Ethiopia's Late PM With One-Minute Silence
President Kagame on Thursday asked all people attending a major function in Kigali to stand up for a one-minute moment of silence in honor of former Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi who died on Tuesday Sounding emotional, President Kagame said a moment of silence would be observed as a gesture of solidarity with the Ethiopian people. Premier Zenawi was not a leader for Ethiopia alone, but an eminent leader for the entire African continent, said Kagame.

A Nation Mourning – Celebrating a Life of a Visionary Leader
Kelemu Smeneh August 23, 2012-I didn’t always have a soft side for Meles Zenawi, the late Prime Minister of Ethiopia. I have criticized him when I thought his, what I thought at that time, excessive focus on ethnic issues were wrong. Then, I thought that his approach would weaken Ethiopia. But history proved me wrong.


Statement by Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, on the Death of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi

Foreign Policy: The Meles Zenawi I Knew
Barry Malone lived in Ethiopia for almost five years and was Reuters correspondent there until November 2010.
Meles was not your typical one-dimensional African strongman — a term often applied to him by the Western media but one that seemed somehow lazily old-fashioned and patronizing, jarring uncomfortably with his bookish demeanour. Meles came to power as one of a group of men who led a rebel coalition that overthrew brutish communist dictator, Mengistu Haile Mariam...Unlike the pin head at CNN "outfront" people who knew PM Meles indeed have high regard to what he has accomplished!

Remembering Meles Zenawi
Ghelawdewos Araia - As the maxim goes, with all the best intentions in the world some sorrow remains, and there is no doubt that the family and extended family of Meles Zenawi are in deep sorrow for his untimely departure. Before I delve into the remembrance notes I like to extend my condolences to Azieb (Gola) Mesfin and his children. I have known Meles Zenawi at Addis Ababa University ...

Meles the Lion

Daniel Gizaw The metaphor, lion, doesn’t fully reveal the unfathomable depth and the iron will Mr. Meles was possessed. For Ethiopia, after the murderous carnage conducted by the brutal leader named Mengistu...

Meles Zenawi and Ethiopia’s Grand Experiment

By ABDUL MOHAMMED and ALEX DE WAAL-The death of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi deprives Ethiopia — and Africa as a whole — of an exceptional leader. We both knew him from his days as a guerrilla in the mountains of Tigray...

Zenawi: The titan who changed Africa
At 23:40 local time, the Ethiopian prime minister was declared dead, the consequences of a mysterious infection that had international policymakers and Ethiopian citizens concerned about his health for weeks. Meles rapidly became an international statesman: He was hailed by Bill Clinton as the prime exponent of "Africa's new generation of leaders" in 1998; he sat on Tony Blair's Commission for Africa in 2004-2005 ...
