26 May 2016 - The former Ethiopian first lady, the wife of the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has left Ethiopia with her daughter to live in America.

Azeb 'Gola' Mesfin and Semhal Meles decided to migrate to USA after Azeb was concerned about the security of her business 'empire' and the safety of her family.
