Abe Abraham, the marriage thing has nothing to do with race but with a better opportunity of going to Europe. No exaggeration needed here. As you may know many africans including Ethiopians and Eritreans would do everything to go to the west and what he was saying is that he refused this offer to stay at home and become "a king".
Fed up, I think the fame and acceptance he is getting from allover Ethiopia is having first effects on him. This is becoming too much for him and it is getting in over his head. I hope the more experienced leaders of OPDO and ANDM like Lemma and Gedu will help him to cool down and become down to earth because Ethiopia will never have a king again after our last kind ሞዓ አንበሳ ዘአም ነገደ ይሁዳ ስዩመ እግዚአብሔር

When one listens the whole context though, one senses one positive aspect and that is that he views his job as a higher calling and very special. He has also a sense of leaving a good legacy for himself. He is not just to come, loot and go type. That means he will not be satisfied unless he does something great to be noticed in the historical books. That is a very different self understanding than both Meles and puppet Hailemariam. I hope he deeply understands that we Ethiopians need him not to be king but to first purge the TPLF looters and dictators and lead the country into a fully democratic path PEACEFULLY. I hope this will be his legacy. Attempting to become ስዩመ እግዚአብሔር
rather than ስዩመ ህዝብ
will of course fail miserably in todays Ethiopia and I am sure he is aware of that. I still want to give him some months before I quit because the alternative is very scary.
