By Getahune Bekele,

Ethiopian Foreign Minister, Tedros Adhanom’s 30 meters sprint to a waiting car after being separated from his body guards during scuffle with refugees must have been the most embarrassing moment of his life.

He lost his wallet, a note book and his glasses while sprinting like a cheetah.

The warlord was in South Africa to meet TPLF cadres and supporters at Hyatt hotel in Rose bank near Johannesburg when angry refugees and members of the Ethiopian community association gate crashed the gathering which was being attended by less than 50 TPLF cadres out of an estimated 3,000 belived to be living in South Africa.  Continue reading Ethiopian FM Run for his Life After Scuffle with Angry Protesters in South Africa

Those who know where Mr. Meles has gone are not talking; and those who are talking don’t know where he has gone. But everyone knows dictator Meles Zenawi has completely vanished from public view. He was last seen at the G20 meeting in Mexico on June 19. He looked gaunt and debilitated.

The United States has already reportedly begun to check two options for what could follow after Prime Minister Meles Zenawi:
