The Ethiopian government has also cancelled a scheduled news conference on Meles’ ailing health today, raising further speculations that the regime is in no mood to admit the 57-year-old prime minister is gravely ill and near death.
Meles, who has battled substance abuse his entire adult life, has not been publicly seen in weeks. Last Monday, his handpicked deputy prime minister and foreign minister, Hailemariam Desalegne, confirmed that Meles is in poor health, but declined to give specifics.
