MELES ZENAWI: The aspirant ‘grey eminence’ of Ethiopian politics willed it in 2009; he chose to play his cruel power game from TPLF’s throne, stacking the cards in his & the Front’s favor undermining our nation’s cohesion & resilience;   ==========================  among others, in proclamation No. 653/2009, he decreed in a hungry nation first world pension & bequeathable retirement benefits for himself, his family & hirelings;   ==========================  he also granted all TPLF members first son’s rights, including decreeing pension rights to former TPLF guerrilla fighters, while withdrawing pension rights of all former Ethiopian soldiers;   ==========================  he made sure that in ethiopia the “we” so well have known from our history is replaced by division between the “us” & “them”, thus a solid dividing line between the corrupt nouveau riche & the rest as class of the nation’s pauperized;   ==========================  this bad inheritance is surely one of the many poison pills responsible for TPLF’s bad behavior, now resulting in its lamentation about bad governance problems;   ==========================  ethiopia that otherwise was full of opportunities has now become the lady with drying breasts;   ==========================  excesses of this greed are now burdening a present rife with tension, deepening poverty & inequality in this single-party state with single ethnic army controlling the moment & the nation’s resources, which has opened it up to a future riddled with national uncertainties;   ==========================  could thus ethiopians ever be able to pull together as multi-ethnic nation to attain their food self-security & honor their true achievements?   ==========================
