    Just Wondering how come, TADIAS don’t talk about our leader Meles
    Zenawi…. come on guys he is the only African leader to mix with the
    G-20 and you guys haven’t say a word about him. You don’t have to be
    TPLF supporter to talk about the good thing he is doing back home.

    I hope you don’t delete my comments.
    Cheers!

    Yeah I agree with you Dorowot. Hate will get us no where, we have witnessed that for a long time. We have to do things biblical to overcome some of the injustices. Unity is the key. Think positive, Love the one who hates you, Forgive those who tresspass against you and leave the rest to almighty God.
