    It is almost impossible to believe that
    a politician can make such a civilized
    and reasonable attitudinal change. I want to thank you Mr Lidetu for the exemplary and brave character that you have chosen to demonstrate ever since the revolution you have made upon your self !!!

    Lidetu is a born politician by any standard. He is farsighted, pragmatist and positive minded. History will never forget his role.

    The so-called "lidetu Weshetu", You are advicing people not to listen lidetu, if you believe in your words heartly why you need to listen lidetu's interview in the first place? It is not lidetu you are the lier.

    What depress me the most isn't so much Lidetu's wishy-washy (Adeer bay) personality but the amount of naive n simple minded comments left by all of you people praising this 'kehade'. so in your book anybody who praise a dictator of 21 years like Lidetu is a mature politician but anyone who criticize dictatorship is a bad politician, OMG you people are so *** beyond believe.

    ledetu is the twin of meles. always lying and denying what they say before the sunsets. please ethiopians never listen to this ediots pls pls
  17. Natnael
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Liedtu is better than all opposition parties. His opinion is almost good. I think the Dormant merchant Birhanu Nega would learn from you about politics but his mind is prepared for private wealth and discontinuity of Ethiopian nations and nationalities. Lidetu may be good politician man if he follow the foot print of the Ethiopian hero ever beloved meles Zenawi
  18. Ruzene

    I wish if lidetu become our prime minister. He is my number one favarite politician.

    I alaways repect this man (even though I am neither in his party nor a follower of hils political views). He is an examlpe for all of us as a sober, reasonable politician.
  21. mario

    ato Lidetu
    he will be the next most important person in Ethiopian politics. I have read his book, i have his party' manifesto, i have been following his stand in all affairs of Ethiopia he has nothing but consistant.His biggest strengeth has been his willingness to work with oppenets for the common good of the country.In all his dealings he stressed theextreme elimination game is road to nowhere. the future of Ethiopian politics is not so blick @ all, with ypung people like lidetu.
  22. Sis

    What a smart person, a real politician. History will remember you. Kudos for your bold statement. You stood alone before and continued to be that way. Keep up the good job. In a leadership, principle matters. Keep up. Ethiopians will understand you later.

    Lidetu, you still live in our poor country and try to change their lives. Those Diaspora live in rich country, collect $ and talk with their empty mind. You are the voice of our poor people. I love you and, appreciate you. One day you will be the other Meles Zenawi. Go, Go Lidetu Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Tarik
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Thank you Lidetu! The biggest problem with opposition leaders now is they are disconnected from what is going on in Ethiopia. Some are frozen in 1992 some are frozen in 2005 election. But things change and currently Millions of Ethiopians are rethinking about what Meles was all about.
    Ledetu had been very pragmatist always. I see great future for Ethiopia knowing there are people like Lidetu.
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Please this DEDEBE Berhanu Nega, Tamagne Beyene, Elias Kifle, Abebe Belew, Abebe Gelaw learn from this intellegent man Lidetu. You guys only knows talking and collect money for your big stomach. Please try to mature, try to change our people. You live in USA and don't try to mange our country people. Leave our country for those bright minded people like Lidetu, Dr. Eleni and others.

  37. rockville
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Ledettu is one of the best poletician that I have seen for long time. He is very consistent and well spoken young man. His opinion about Meles Zenawie is very true, Mele's plus is way bigger than his minus.

    Akberkuh,ende ante 1000 yabzalin. lehager tekami/genbi asabi politician.mechchal,mekebaber,le ande hager mesrat even if u have d/t political ideology.
  39. molla
    2 years, 6 months ago

    ledetu was a matured leader way before the death of the PM. the minji heads of genbot 7 and others are the once who were and are traveling "Yeaheya menged". They cound not fantum the idea that other ethiopians can think and lead the country. Or that we can keep our differences and work on our similarities. so ledetu Thank you and I hope you have not retiered from partisipating in politics.
  40. Yared
    2 years, 6 months ago

    You are very matured and civilized. You did not agree with his methods but still you appreciated the good deeds he did. Guys like you are the politicians that our country needs, not people who are blinded and sick by unconditional hatred like Abebe Gelaw.
  41. Melat
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Good job ledetu! as usual your interveiw is matured and balanced. By the way I heard that you are doing your 3rd degree in UK. Please do not spend your precious time at school, to be a good politician what you have is sufficient. Thanks for all Kinigit Phd holders, they have shown as how degrees are useless when we come to politics.
  42. Tamrat
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Sara- these 2 or 3 people who are accusing lidetu in such nonsense way they knew the truth very well. But, as they have no a single strong point to challenge lidetu's veiw for them the easeast way is accusing him as woyane or killer. When people defeated in argument this is the only thing they could say. So you have to understand their problem. They are loosers in many ways.
  43. Sara
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Those of you who are trying to accuse ledetu for killing people could you p/s answer me these questions- was ledetu in a position (in 2005) to order the police force and kill people? In what way ledetu, who argueed Kingit to take its parlimenary seats and continue its peaceful strugle can be accused of killing peole? P/s guys be rational in your judgement of people.

  46. Truwork
    2 years, 6 months ago

    What i wish is to see you being Ethiopian PM, at least we want to see you in the parliament, p/s let us know if you are planing to run in the 2015 election. This is the concern of most people in Ethiopia.
  47. tazabi

    People don't compare Lidetu with that pig( Birhanu Nega), he lives for his belly. Because of his meaningless party we've lost so many young men in 2005.

    2 years, 6 months ago

    Ato "negga" don't you know the difference between "sedib" and politics? You know what- it is people like you who justified the need of wise politician like lidetu. Lidetu is not a person flowing with the water, he is the opposit, you are talking about a person you don't know and actually a person like you can not know him.

    Ethiomedia website wrote "Tamagne Beyene collect $115". I told you before he only knows collect money and put in his big pocket, in his big mouth, in his big big stomach. He only knows that. He doesn't have any political knowledge. I wish he learn from those bright mind politician. I think he only finished grade 4 in Ethiopia.

    For DireTube and for those of you who are interested to know how Ledetu was victime of Birhanu Nega's conspiracy, you can google- " Lidetu Ayalew Ethiopian Democratic Party campaigning in Ethiopia 2010-youTube" and learn the truth. Or it would be good if DireTube cooperate by posting it on this site. B/c people sounds very interested to know the truth these days than before.
