Today is the 42nd day since Ethiopia’s dictator Meles Zenawi has disappeared. This morning, Ethiopian Review has received an unconfirmed, but credible, report that his body has arrived in Addis Ababa from Belgium.
Power struggle in the ruling party TPLF intensifies. Tigray President Abay Woldu is emerging as a serious contender to replace Meles. One sign of his growing influence is that there is more security around him than an of the other TPLF leaders. During the past few days he has been observed traveling with an army of bodyguards, according to Ethiopian Review sources.
