Ethiopia: 38th Anniversary of the TPLF Celebrated in Mekelle

The 38th anniversary of the formation of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) was celebrated colorfully on Monday (February 19th) in Mekelle, the capital of Tigray Regional State.

Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minster Hailemariam Desalegn said although the day was marked in the absence of a great leader, the late Meles Zenawi, it was also a time to renew the commitment for development using the clear policies and strategies he had left the nation. Abay Woldu, Chairperson of the TPLF and President of the Tigray Regional State, said the day was one on which to renew commitment to fulfill the ongoing works of development, peace and democracy which had been orchestrated by their late Great Leader Meles.

The Central Committee of the TPLF said that the Front and the People of Tigray would strengthen their ongoing efforts, in collaboration with the nations, nationalities and peoples of Ethiopia, to realize the renaissance of the country. The 38th Anniversary which marked under the theme, "Meles' campaign for growth and success", was attended by leading members of the TPLF, thousands of residents of Mekelle town and its surroundings and senior government officials.
