Hence, it would be unfair to expect you to be exceptional. The Colonel misses Ethiopia in general, and is very nostalgic for Harer in particular. He has written extensively on Ethiopian history and culture for the past 20 years finding common factors that united the peoples of Ethiopia at a time of historical confusion and denial.

The mother of Ethiop was Ruth Amin. Your mother chose your father and married him.

A good number of them had served their county well, and some of them, like Prime Ministers Mekonen Habtewold and Endalkachew Mekonen could have served their country further if they were not condemned to die. Please share the truth, Colonel.

You were proud of being Ethiopian and you cherished the great Ethiopian history. In part one, the Colonel touches many subjects speaking briefly about Major Dawit Wolde-giorgis, Emperor Haile-selassie, Ex-prime Minster Endalkachew Mekonen, the late Oromo leader Baro Tumssa, the Felasha, Robert Mugabe, Garbachov and Paul Henze, He also airs his views on power and African leaders, Derg and democracy, his opponents, the EPRDF court that gave him death sentence, remorse and forgiveness, betrayal, his security officers, his counselors, those injured in war, Somalia, and last, the book he is currently writing.

It was also recalled that, Mengistu states also that Mesfin Wolde Mariam, was also adviser to the previous Ethiopian regime and, in that capacity, had suggested that over 60 followers of former Emperor Haile Selassie jailed since the revolution be eliminated in order to avoid situations like in “Spain the reactionaries get organized and reverse the revolution”.


You had a fine ability to chair meetings. I find this part to be engaging and mind-stimulating. I intend to review this book and use the occasion to analyze it and pose gebet few crucial questions to Colonel Mengistu Hailemariam, the former President of Ethiopia.

Eritrea closes border crossings to Ethiopian travelers. Would the Colonel now put his feet in the shoes of such unfortunate Ethiopians and feel their pain and anguish?

You were a fast learner and very alert. Did you do something to change the mentality of such color-conscious, abusive individuals in a black African country? Please allow me to pose to you a few questions for the record, pertaining to bloodletting and other issues. Whether he would or not the fact that he is as homesick as other refugees is a poetic justice.

You see what I mean? I like your insight here.

Speaking about his childhood, he remembers how his mother made him a ball of rags, and how later on his uncle bought him a real ball, and how other kids of his neighborhood flocked after him begging him to kick his ball. To be fair, I have to admit that you had some positive qualities too. Your father moved to Addis Abeba and you started to live with Dejazmatch Kebede Tessema on your own, even though you were not related to him biologically.

This proved that you were not as farsighted as you gave the impression to be.

Colonel, is this all true? People can access Ethiopian history on their own if they desire to. It goes like this. These interviews add some more facts to our knowledge of these subjects. In other words, your own action backfired on you and caused your downfall. It is long overdue that you wrote such a book, dear Colonel.
