Great Loss of Great Leader!!
Great Loss of Great Leader!! Yes, we have lost the exceptional and one of the few fertile minded and highly committed leader, Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. Really he had great passion for the development of our country. He laid ever strong foundation that will not be damaged. We have to comfort ourselves by this. He will always have a special place in the heart of all Ethiopians and Africans and a special place in the History of Ethiopians and Africans and the World. He was the greatest African from Ethiopia, who lived and died for Africans throughout his life. Of course, he had inspired all of us to work hard and live for our country with great passion and commitment. He demonstrated to us the right way to live for our people.
Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, Great Loss of Great Leader!!
Let GOD bless and comfort his families and all Ethiopians. Let GOD help us to work hard to realize his goal and vision.
