Ethiopia to continue late leader’s fight against militants

Ethiopia seeks to assure the U.S. and other allies that the death of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi will not affect the regional fight against Al Qaeda affiliates.

August 21, 2012, JOHANNESBURG, South Africa  — Washington relied for years on Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi to help crush Islamist terrorist groups in the volatile Horn of Africa.

But now the charismatic strongman is gone and America’s immediate concern is whether the regional fight against Al Qaeda-linked groups such as the Shabab in Somalia will drift and lose its way.

Meles died late Monday after an illness that the country’s leadership had kept secret for months. Ethiopian officials were at pains Tuesday to reassure the world that there would be no major policy deviations or power vacuum.

“I assure you everything is stable and everything will continue as chartered by the prime minister,” government spokesman Bereket Simon said.

Meles’ deputy, Hailemariam Desalegn, will serve as acting prime minister, and many analysts predict he will emerge as the ruling party’s chosen successor. Read more…

Abbaa Faaroo Abbaa Foggii was killed yesterday in Atlanta

August 21, 2012

It has been confirmed that a prominent Oromo activitst, Abbaa Faaroo, was gun down by unknown assailant in Atlanta yesterday morning.  The cause of the killing is still unknown.  We will follow up the development.

Abbaa Faaroo is one of the grand sons of Abba Jifaar II, who was king of the Gibe Kingdom of Jimma (reigned 1878 – 1932).

Rundassa wrote: “Abbaa Faaroo’s personal legacy goes beyond this brief list and my power to describe. But his accomplishments have at least one thing in common. Always they were to create an opportunity for us to win and live with dignity. And always he thought of his Oromo root.

Abbaa Faaroo is in the spirit/Ekeraa world today among the noble Oromians who have done great work for us all. He is surely aware of our sorrow and our sense of loss at our separation from him. He knew at the end of his life the pain in his heart of losing someone he loved. If we told him of our grief, he would listen carefully, and then I think he would say something like this, with sympathy in his voice but with a sound in it that would bring a smile to our lips, “Oh, we will win” (Ni Mona!

Meles Zenawi and the late Abune Paulos

August 21, 2012 (BBC) – Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has died aged 57 after months of illness, the government says.
