Ethiopia: Preparations Underway to Set Up the Meles Zenawi Foundation

Ato Addisu Legesse, chairperson of the organizing committee for the Meles Zenawi Foundation, announced on Wednesday, (February 20th) that the committee is organizing a founding conference to be held next month. The House of People's Representatives endorsed a proclamation establishing the Meles Zenawi Foundation last month. Ato Addisu, former Deputy Prime Minister, said the Foundation would help keep the works of the great leader Meles Zenawi visible and keep his vision for the nation alive and functional.

During next month's conference, a council representing all the founding members of the Foundation, including representatives of Ethiopia's Nations, Nationalities and Peoples and pertinent government bodies as well as other relevant sections of society, would be set up to implement the decisions of the conference. Delegates from African countries and various other nations would be invited to the Meles Zenawi Foundation conference.
