Meles Zenawi was Ethiopia's former Prime Minister with a net worth of $3 billion. Before becoming a prime minister of his native country, Zenawi was the president Ethiopia in the nineties (from 1991-1995). He was also the chairman of Tigrayan People's Liberation Front (TPLF) and the head of Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) during the eighties. Taking the position of Prime Minister of Ethiopia from 1995 (until his death in August 2012), Zenawi was hailed as one Africa's strongmen, introducing a multi- party political system, private press in the country and reducing child mortality rates. He was also heavily involved in the US' War of Terror, helping to eliminate military organisations such as Al Qaeda. Furthermore, Zenawi received praised for his work towards a stable relationship with the African Union, playing an important role in improving continent's position on climate change. However his leadership came under serious attack, as he was accused of abusing a string of human rights issues and repressing the freedom of press/speech. Following a brain tumour operation in Brussels, Zenawi died contracting an infection on August 2012. He was 57. Barack Obama said that Zenawi 'deserves the recognition for his lifelong contribution to Ethiopia's development, particularly to the poor.'
Meles Zenawi Asres (Ge'ez: a??a??a?u a??a??a?? a? a?ua??a?u MA?lA?s Zenawi A?srA?s; 8 May 1955 a?? 20 August 2012, born Legesse Zenawi Asres) was the Prime Minister of Ethiopia from 1995 until his death in 2012. From 1985, he was the chairman of the Tigrayan Peoples' Liberation Front (TPLF), and the head of the ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF). He was President of Ethiopia from 1991 to 1995 and became the Prime Minister of Ethiopia in 1995 following the general elections that year. While his government was credited with reforms such as those that led a multi-party political system in Ethiopia, introduction of private press in Ethiopia and decreased child mortality rates, his government was also accused of political repression and various human rights abuses, curbing freedom of press. and dissent. Known by the media as one of Africa's strongmen, he was also an ally in the United States' "War on Terror".
Zenawi was born in Adwa, Tigray, in northern Ethiopia, to an Ethiopian father from Adwa and a mother from Adi Quala, Eritrea. He graduated from the General Wingate High school in Addis Ababa, then studied medicine at Addis Ababa University (at the time known as Haile Selassie University) for two years before interrupting his studies in 1975 to join the Tigrayan People's Liberation Front (TPLF). Aregawi Berhe, a former member of the TPLF, notes that in their histories of the TPLF both John young and Jenny Hammond "vaguely indicate" that Meles was one of the founders of the TPLF. Aregawi insists that both he and Sibhat Nega joined the Front "months" after it was founded. While a member of the TPLF, Zenawi founded the Marxist-Leninist League of Tigray. His first name at birth was "Legesse" (thus Legesse Zenawi, Ge'ez: a??a??a?? a??a??a?? legesse zA?nA?wA<<). However, he eventually became better known by his nom de guerre Meles, which he later adopted in honour of university student and fellow Tigrayan Meles Tekle who was executed by Men
