(Bloomberg) --
The widow of Ethiopia’s former prime minister, Meles Zenawi, was appointed to the board of the Horn of Africa country’s military-industrial conglomerate Metals & Engineering Corp.
Azeb Mesfin said she was appointed to MeTEC earlier this month, confirming a May 24 report by the closely-held Addis Fortune newspaper. She was one of five members of the central committee of the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front, one of the ruling party’s four wings, who was removed in November following an internal evaluation because “they had done things that disqualified them to serve as TPLF central committee members,” according to the party.
