Hailemariam Desalegn got “F” for miscommunication By Abebe Gellaw

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a critical commentary on the incompetence of the accidental Prime Minister of Ethiopia. However, some apologists of the tyrannical TPLF regime shouted that my commentary on Puppet Hailemariam Desalegn (PHD) was an unsubstantiated attack against the ceremonial PM.

As a follow-up, Addis Voice has produced a well-substantiated parody that exposes PHD’s incompetence and confusion in collaboration with American language and communications expert, J Davidson. Mr. Davidson has analysed publicly available speeches of PHD, the frequent errors he makes and the messages he tries hard to convey to the world in English.

“After considering a number of criteria, I have to give him a big F in communication skills,” he said.

It is very evident that the TPLF regime is facing deep leadership crisis. After PHD, the regime remains leaderless. Puppet Hailemariam Desalegn (PHD) is only following the orders of his dozens of TPLF bosses rather than leading the pack.

Despite being propped up by three deputy Prime Ministers and a dozen of “advisers” like Bereket Simon and Abay Tsehaye that pull the strings of control on him behind the scene, PHD is still fragile and weak. His incompetence, shallowness, opportunism and confusion is too evident to miss whenever he appears in public.

There is a big difference between a puppet and a leader. Unlike puppets, leaders are not made. Because leadership requires exceptionally inherent qualities, it is said that leaders are rather born, not made. Real leaders that can command respect and admiration have exceptional communication prowess. As the American author and presidential speechwriter said: “The art of communication is the language of leadership.”

“If I were him, I would certainly use an interpreter. He certainly has no command of the English language, which is obviously an international language. Instead of expressing himself clearly, he is miscommunicating with the world,” he said.

Addis Voice invite you to watch the video and judge for yourself. Ethiopia is being led by incompetent demagogues under the leadership of a clueless puppet. The TPLF regime is a total joke.

    what a I have witnessed is a cheap journalism over substance, every thing that is wrong in a political journalism- Abebe, you should not have bothered to find a white guy to justify your incompetency as a journalist. Time and time again you have demonstrated yourself as one of the small minded journalists who have mastered in the business of gossip and personal attacks. For this reason, I am no longer interested in reading any of your articles. Hope you will educate yourself and become a better journalist.

    Thank you Abe,Don’t give space to TPLF gangsters at all. Let the outside world know who these people really are and whether they are efficient for the post they are capturing by force defying the genuine public vote in 2005.

    Apart from his gross grammatical error he had made you have brought important issues to the attention of the people of Ethiopia and beyond which is of-course fabrication of history in relation to border issues with Sudan; if we keep remaining silent and indifferent to this crucial matter they will write the same fabricated story with Somalia and Djibouti as well.

    Is it important to speak good English to be a good prime minister? There are many excellent leaders who don’t speak English at all. Equally, speaking good English does not make one a good journalist either.
