Meles Zenawi
A day after the Ethiopian government officially announced his ailment, Prime Minster Meles Zenawi came back to Addis Abeba, according to a credible source. The Premier came back to town on Friday evening, July 20, 2012, and he is recovering well, the source revealed to Fortune, almost a month passed after Meles had last been seen at major public events or in the media.

His absence was confirmed for the first time a day before the opening of the 19th African Union Heads of State & Government Summit, held in Addis Abeba from July 15 to 16, 2012. Later last week, the Government Communication Affairs Office (GCAO) officially announced that Meles was in "good condition" and "recuperating fast" from his unspecified illness.

"It will not be too long before he resumes his work," Bereket Simon, head of the GCAO, with a ministerial portfolio, told media on Thursday afternoon. "We expect him to be back in days."

The source shared Bereket's expectations. The Prime Minister is recovering and will be back to his work, full-fledged, soon, the source disclosed.

Shimeles Kemal, state minister for the GCAO, told Fortune that he was not yet informed about the PM's return. His counterpart, Beker Shale confirmed that there was no development in the state of the Prime Minister's health, other than what was announced on Thursday by Bereket.

"It is not necessary to disclose the whereabouts of the Prime Minister at this time," Beker told Fortune over the phone on Saturday afternoon. "If there is any progress on his condition, we will officially disclose it in the future."

Senior officials were not available to confirm his return.

    “He is resting from exhaustion… He will be back in ten days…. He is in hospital….No, he is on holiday…. He is in town…No, he is in Europe… No, no, no…he is relaxing in America…,” TPLF officials told the public in the past two weeks. But Zenawi is nowhere to be seen. He was neither in the palace nor in his rubber-stamp parliament making and unmaking laws. And yet, TPLF’s creative stories change within hours and each weird story adds more fuel to wild speculations and rumors.

    Meles will live till he fullfills his mission. we need him to be on his position for sometime. Because Meles is the only visionary leader since hitherto. He brought the country in the forefront position from a scratch. He also brought a long lasting solution for our diverse problems. Melese's untapped experience and knowledge will coninue in the future. Long live MELES!!

    You will not find another leader in Africa like Meles except for Nelson Mendela. Meles is genius leader who has transformed Ethiopia into a new era. Without Meles there is no Ethiopia. All others who wish him harm are not judging him on his leadership kills and contribution and transformation of Ethiopia but based on this tribal backgrounds, typical African mentality, instead of peace solutions.

    Person like Meles Zenawi happened to chuck on us how we jude a person. Shame on Dr berhanu and many, this condition is going to happen for you to. Do you see the face of abebe, he is uneducated, high temperd person, we have many of his kind, they are the road to hell. Do you think he is introducing Meles to those educated people in the meeting? no. he said he fill like he is forgoten.

    I refuse to believe that such "trash" comment would come out of an Ethiopian, that's not the way we are raised. We Ethiopians have never wished harm, death or loss for even our enemies (that's the Ethiopia I grew up in & it's not long ago).
    PM Meles has its good/ bad, up/ down moments, but regardless of his standings, I don't think he deserves death wishes. Don't narrow your minds!

    Genocidal Melse Zenawi is declared "Clinically dead" by western doctors.. Guys don't waste your time, you will not see him as a functioning PM. Most Ethiopians are so clueless, hodam, selfish and idiot, the dead PM might be running Ethiopia for a long time.

    Here in USA Ethopian accusing USA for giving financial aid for Melse. first of all ethopian we do not get that much help fro USA. Egypt alone get over 4 billion dollars a year aid from USA compare to that ethopian getts $0... I just want to clear that out! Melse is used by USA to controle horn of africa, if he does not respect usa gov. wish he will be killed.. it is all evil poletics!!!!!!

    Out of all this evil act by Ertrian leader banda. Our Melse learned no longer to trust Ertrian leader Banda! Melse keep an eye on him in every direction! which I am very happy about! One thing ethopian people should know that, when melese used to be TPLF leader, he was visited by former presdent of USA Carter in the jungle, which meanst USA supported melese to overthrow mengistu communist regime!

    Melese should atleast keep one port as part of Ethopia.. but that "BANDA" Ertrian leader probably convinced Melse.. Ethopian would have full access to the port without any fee , god knows how he convinced him! banda should not be trusted through out ethopian history!!!!!he turned himself against ethopian people and open war 1998-2000 which killed our thousands of ethopian life for fxx up REASON!

    Through History, Ethopian people always have somthig negative to say about all Ethopian leaders! YES.. every one of them leaders made mistake.. well they are human ofcourse they make mistakes! learning from mistake is another issue. That is exactely what Melese doing! Melese made a mistake when Ertria became independent he agreed both our port to be part of Ertria "'BIG MISTAKE'"

    No more bullshitting. until you produce a picture or video, then we will assume he is incapacitated or dead.

    Do you think it is fun to be Melese to hear, Every country in the world including G8 and G20 summit representing Ethopia. All they talked about Ethopia.. how starved we are "starving people'' we only known as starving people. Melse has to deal all this yet tried his hardest to make sure nile river drama solved .. so we can grow our food! effective agriculture technology, so we can feed us!

    Imagine with in 10 days for G 8 and G 20 meeting he made trip from Addis to USA (Double trip) .Then from Addis to Mexico and from Mexico to Brazil and he return back to Addis.He is not only brillient but also hard working prime minister. I personally prefer him to have more rest and family time.

    we need the prime minister for long time for the a number of reasons:1.Except Menigstu Ethiopian leaders are not lucky enough to see the country after they lose power. 2. Whether we appreciate him or not he was working hard over 30 years for Ethiopia, Africa and the Globe. 3. The volatile condion of east africa is in pipe line to stability. The prime has contributed a lot.

    When are you guys gonna present a news which has atleast 1% truth in it?. 100% lie. don't u have respect for the 80 million people?. This dictator is the reason for the massacre of more than 200 innocent citizens including a 10 year old kid in 1997 stolen election. Don't you have respect for Eskinder nega's kid who was born in prison? his dad now in prison? and many more oppositions in prison?
