Former Ethiopia PM: Labeling me a dictator is wrong | Conflict Zone



Having resigned after several years of unrest in Ethiopia in which hundreds of protesters were killed, Hailemariam Desalegn left behind a questionable human rights record. On DW’s Conflict Zone, he said he began reforms now being taken up by his successor and wasn’t aware of alleged abuse in secret prisons. “If I knew those things I would have corrected them,” he told host Tim Sebastian.

  1. THANK YOU FOR THIS EXCELLENT INTERVIEW. THESE CORRUPT AFRICAN LEADERS COMMIT ALL SORTS OF CRIMES AGAINST THEIR PEOPLE AND ONCE THEY'RE FORCED OUT OF OFFICE THEY CLAIM TO BE INNOCENT. I LOVE THIS KIND OF INTERVIEWS BECAUSE IT EXPOSES THESE KILLERS. IT'S JUST NAUSEATING TO SEE THIS HAILEMARIAM DEFENDING HIS TENURE AS THE LEADER OF ETHIOPIA. WHEN YOUNG PEOPLE WHERE SLAUGHTERED ON THE STREETS OF ADDIS BY HIS GANGSTERS, HE WAS PUTTING THE BLAME ON THE UNARMED VICTIMS. HE'S LUCKY THAT ETHIOPIANS HAVE FORGIVEN HIM .

  2. Hailemariam, shame on you! you were forced to resign by the power of “qeerroo”!! Remote controlled by TPLF, you were like a big doll! as a puppet, you served well!! your greed & hypocrisy has been condemned widely but still you are trying to defend yourself shamefully.if I were you, I wouldn’t take the interview! do you really sleep well?

  3. Great interviewer. Hailemariem must have thought he was given attention but was in complete shock and defensive mode. Typical dictator caught red handed. His voice got trembling just from this interview. Now can he feel how a ruthless dictator he was that ruined thousands of innocent lives? He is still in denial and coward to accept he was part of the torture , a country and lives he destroyed.

  4. Hailmariam liar, lair, lair !!! You are a very cruel bad evil man!!!!!! You have no faith in God, You need to go to ICC court then to then to the death chamber!!!

  5. Hailemariam you have done nothing good. Return any award because you failed to do your job. If torture and human abuse are the work you take pride in then yes you deserve the award for the Most Torturer and Evil Man of the Century
