Death To Mengistu Haile Mariam, In Zimbabwe

by | 27th, May 2008

FROM our African despot correspondent:

The Ethiopian Supreme Court has sentenced the country’s former dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam to death…The former leader is, however, unlikely to face execution as he has lived in exile in Zimbabwe since he was ousted from power in 1991. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe’s government is not expected to extradite him“. Source

A brief anecdote to give the man’s measure: “He shouted “Death to counterrevolutionaries! Death to the EPRP!” and then produced two bottles of what appeared to be blood and smashed them to the ground to show what the revolution would do to its enemies“. Source
