October 2012

Dear Editor,

Allow me to express my genuine appreciation to you and your team at Addis Standard magazine.  Having said so, your obituary on the late PM Meles Zenawi (Obituary – the late PM Meles Zenawi Sep. 2012) deserves the most appreciation for its professional, easy to read and well balanced assessment of the life of the late PM Meles Zenawi. However, I was deeply disappointed to see the article lacks backing its argument with some statistics, particularly economic statistics, of the achievements and/or failures of the late PM since he took power in 1991.  I hope your next assessment of his legacy will include some of the hard to avoid economic evidence registered during the reign of the late PM.
