It’s been 33 days now since Ethiopia’s khat-addicted dictator Meles Zenawi disappeared from the public view. There are strong indications that he has expired, but the ruling Woyanne junta insists that he is alive and recovering from a minor illness. If the regime is telling the truth, why did they go to the extent of blocking the distribution of newspaper last Friday in Addis Ababa that reported about the seriousness of his health? The reason the regime gave for shutting down the newspaper is “national security.”
This is just another evidence that Ethiopia is being ruled by a North Korea-type secretive regime where a report about whose leader is considered a crime. Sadly, it is this regime that the U.S. and E.U. are supporting to the tune of over $1 billion per year. It is this drug junkie dictator that President Obama invited to discuss about food security in Africa last May.
What is even more sad is that the Ethiopian opposition parties are not able to come together and topple the decayed regime that is led by a dictator who is lying in a morgue or an ICU. The Ethiopian opposition can bring down the Woyanne junta with economic boycott alone.
This is the most opportune time to liberate Ethiopia from the tribal junta that has been brutalizing the people of Ethiopia during the past 20 years. It can be done without firing a single bullet. Let’s wage an all out economic boycott campaign, as called by over 12 Ethiopian media organizations a couple of months ago, and starve the Woyanne beast to death.
