UPDATE – December 28, 2012: Ethiopian Review sources are reporting that armed forces chief of staff Gen. Samora Yenus is back in a Germany hospital.

UPDATE – August 21, 2012: Samora Yenus has been observed at Bole Airport today along with other TPLF junta officials receiving Meles Zenawi’s body. Our sources have verified that he returned to Addis Ababa two days ago from Germany, but he will return to continue his medical treatment.

  3. They are dropping like flie. Curtesy of Waldeba. They are is dropping dead one by one or abandon post. I hope the opposition is readt to take over.

    We need leadership right now. We need to hear from our leaders (opposition group) where we are going from here or what we need to do.

  4. respect to ethiopianreview keep the fire going under the weyanes feet until they are all exposed and cripples since most are affected by aids and other mental desease – not one tplf gangesters and their foot solders are in good health mentaly or physcially

  5. One by one out the door!!! It speaks volume to hear such an official at the highest echelon of the ruling party dying from a disease known to be transmitted mainly through unsafe sexual encounter. It speaks volume because it once again reveals the value of him and his cronies. No he is going to die one of the most agonizing deaths a human being can encounter. My creed does not allow me to celebrate the suffering of another human being but Allah (God) does things in mysterious ways. He can raise you to the zenith of power just to give you a chance so you can make a difference in peoples lives in positive ways and when you squander that opportunity by reverting to violence, maiming Allah created limbs and eyes, sniffing out the lives of many mothers’ only children and you go on justifying your ruthless behavior through pathological liars, then it is time for the Almighty to move in. Allah (God) has infinite power to go in swift and get rid of the hoodlums along with their cabals. This is a strong message to the surviving high profile official. He is telling them ‘Enough is enough; shape up or you will be next in the path of my rage’!!!!
