“We can say a lot about Emperor Haile Selassie I…Good for
some and bad for others..and for some, he is the Messiah
and Almighty God..for me he is a good father, the pride of
all black people, pioneer of Ethiopia’s modernization a
great leader, who strengthened our unity more than ever. Is this how a father’s story is supposed to end?”

Film Chronicle of the life and times of
His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I,
Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, King of Kings of
Ethiopia and Elect of God
August 27 1975
It was reported that the death of Haille Selassie came from complications of prostate operation.
His personal physician, Dr. Asrat Woldeyes, said this operation never happened.
From 1975-1978, Mengistu was responsible for the 7th worst
Genocide in World history.
About 1.5 million Ehiopians were victims of the Derg
Genocide…the Ethiopian people have still not recovered
from this trauma and destruction.
