Meles among notable people we’ve lost in 2012 – CNN
CNN named former Ethiopia’s Prime Minister, Meles Zenawi among notable people we’ve lost in 2012.
According to CNN, PM Meles was a strongman in the troubled Horn of Africa.
He dedicated his life for the development of Ethiopia and firmly stood for African interests.
He was a man of the people who had always been at the forefront in the long and arduous journey to uproot the repressive regime and put in place a democratic order that guarantees equality and prosperity to the people of Ethiopia.
The Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) was massive blue print produced under his leadership to ensure a faster economic growth that saw millions lifted out of poverty even at the time of economic meltdown elsewhere in the world.
PM Meles put his country on the map globally and diplomatically.
