Ever since he abandoned his communist principles a long time ago, Meles
Zenawi has been looking for a new ideological frame of reference. A few
years ago he was a supporter of "revolutionary democracy" in whose name
he imprisoned his rivals in the EPRDF governing coalition.
Now he has just found a new credo. Feeling that "liberal capitalism" was
of no use to his country, the Ethiopian Prime Minister stated that he
was opting for what he called the "developmental state" as had been
expounded in South Africa.
He also stated that the path to development adopted by China was the
best. Full circle, so to speak!
