This morning I saw a video or TV-interview from ESAT through YouTube click here to watch and was wondering whether Ethiopian people would consider TPLF as a legitimate political party in Ethiopian politics if they knew the true stories/history of the TPLF and especially if they knew the biography of our current leaders including Meles. The person in the interview seemed to me genuine and responsible in telling the stories/history of TPLF.
In this post-modern world it should be the basic right of citizens within a state to seek for information regarding the biography of their political leaders or know many things about their leaders. I belief good leaders are made not born. That means their social and political experience or the diverse situations in their social environment or history has direct implication in the nature and quality of their Leadership.
What ever explanation could there be in defence of what the current Ethiopian leaders did in the past, there is no legal or ethical ground to make what they did and what happened a secret – Ethiopian people have the right to know what each of them did- both as a person and as a member of their political party especially, in regard to the human right, ethical conduct, their stand and psotion regarding Ethiopian sovereignty etc.., .
