Silent coup detat? Getting too Difficult to Distinguish between Rumours and Facts in Ethiopia these days – Ethiopian internet news sites are reporting that the head of the Ethiopian army General Samora Yenus is ill and taken abroad for treatment. This following the reported death and or incapacitating illness, but definite two month disappearance, of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi is creating an even larger power and political vacuum that will be difficult to fill. Add to that the reported death a couple of days ago of the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church,His Holiness Abune Paulos, a figure installed by the regime, unless there is a silent coup detat taking place in Ethiopia and these individuals are being intentionally liquidated it is hard to believe that these reported illness and deaths of these individuals and the disappearance of others, such as Azeb, the wife of the Prime Minister, is a coincidence.
