Described by political commentators as a fool who risked everything on one endeavor, due to the hearty relationship he has had with the late Ethiopian despot Meles Zenawi, the world’s wealthiest black man Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Ali Al Amoudi is back in Addis Ababa, on time to attend Zenawi’s September 2 funeral.
The 67 years old has been receiving medical treatment at King Fahad National Guard hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
After reportedly suffering from severe stress and type two diabetes.
It is not known if his illness was as aggravated by the news of Zenawis’ sudden death.
The man who recently ousted Nigerian Aliko Dangote as the Worlds’ richest black man after acquiring Gold mines and massive fertile land in Ethiopia through corrupt practices, is currently worth 12.5 billion USD.
The Sheikh incurred the Ethiopians’ disfavor in 2005 by openly campaigning for Meles Zenawi who lost the election and massacred hundreds to remain in power. Al Amoudi is also unpopular amongst Muslims in East Africa for donating one million dollar to the Clinton foundation in 2010 while hunger killed thousands in the Ogaden and inside the war torn Somalia.
Moreover, his partly TPLF owned 3.4 billion dollar Debra conglomerate has gained notoriety for forcibly evicting indigenous people from their land and dumping them in overcrowded villages without any compensation paid.
The owner of Addis Ababa’s prestigious Sheraton hotel, Sheikh Al Amoudi has massive investments in the US, Sweden and Morocco.
However, it is the discourteous behavior of TPLF warlords after Meles Zenawis’ death, and the threat of massive uprising against the minority junta, that would remain a health hazard to the lascivious, fun loving mogul.
