Day 40: Where is dictator Meles Zenawi?

Today is the 40th day since Ethiopia’s khat junkie dictator Meles Zenawi has disappeared. ESAT has reported yesterday that its sources have confirmed his death. However, there is no official word from the ruling junta yet.

The dictator’s absence is already causing the regime to start unraveling. Our sources in Addis Ababa today reported that the regime’s hard currency reserve will evaporate in the coming few days, which will lead to the shortage of fuel and other essential supplies. The regime’s spies are also disappearing from local bars, internet cafes and other public places because of fear of backlash from the angry population.
