Tigrai Online, Oct. 19, 2012
The Ethiopian extremists in Diaspora are in a great state of confusion these days. Following the death of the late Prime Minster Meles Zenawi the preachers of hate were hoping for mayhem and destruction in Ethiopia. Their dream of dismantling the country and the constitutional order didn’t materialize. Despite their best efforts supported by Ethiopia’s’ enemies they fail miserably to achieve their goal. The historic power transfer in Ethiopia was smoothly and orderly.
Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn was sworn in September 2012 he succeeded former Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, who died on Aug. 20, 2012 after short illness.
The first ever peaceful power transition didn’t only shatter the prophets’ of doom and gloom’s dream; their only political race card was buried once for all. They can’t say Tigrai this Tigrai that no more because the new Prime Minister and his deputy are not from Tigrai.
Now the few Ethiopians they were fooling for years and using as cash cows are starting to wake up and notice the gigantic lie they were lied to.
Desperate for their political and financial life, they are trying to spread yet another vicious rumor about Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn’s wife. The politically bankrupt and morally corrupted extremists are saying the wife of the new Prime Minister, Roman Tesfaye is an Eritrean and she is going to work for Eritrea. Here is what Ethiomidia one of the hub of the extremist websites said
“Hailemariam may set an EPRDF agenda for the parliament as Roman may set the agenda for Hailemariam. When Hailemariam and Roman had their first daughter, Ms. Roman called the baby girl Yohanna, a name Eritreans began to give in abundance to girls born around the time Shabiya [Eritrean gov't] came to power in 1991. 'Yohanna' means 'congratulations!' In her early 20s, Yohanna for that matter is a close friend of Semhal, the first daughter of Meles Zenawi.” This is extreme even for the extremists, shame one you.
What is ironic is Ginbot-7 the grand daddy of the extremist organizations is in bed with Shabiya working for the disintegration of Ethiopia. It wasn’t long time ago that Ginbot-7 sent Aba Menkarios to Eritrea to ask for help. Why are they acting now like they are allergic to anything Eritrean? These opportunistic cockroaches have no stand or principle or their own. If it serves their evil purpose everything goes.
Let’s assume for a second that Roman Tesfaye is from Eritrean parents, SO WHAT? President Barack Obama’s father is from Kenya, but did that stop him from becoming the president of the most powerful country on earth?
Roman Tesfaye was born in a small town near Wolayta soddo called Gacheno from a Wolayta father and mother. She attended her primary education in Gacheno, and soddo Comprehensive High school. After completing her High school studies she went on to study at Addis Ababa University and graduated with her first degree in Economics. Roman Tesfaye also holds Second degree in economics from an Indian university and An American Institution in Leadership.
