The book was developed as a sober response to a certain professor's remark on Prime Minister Melese Zenawi during a panel discussion presented by BBC Radio 4 on 28 Nov. 2011. The professor who was introduced as Ghanaian by origin has written two books on African issues and used to work in one of the African Desks within President Obama's administration. Initially, the manuscript was compiled as a small, angry and quick response to the professor's unpalatable remarks. However, taking into consideration the gravity of the matter, Alex decided to confer the matter with his good friends. Subsequently he included other non-partisan individuals such as members of the ECNF, at least the current chairperson & secretary/co-ordinator of the radio programme. This ad hoc committee agreed to take this initiative and responsibility to organise this discourse as a 'mini project.' Cooling down, as the days passed by, the ad hoc committee realised that Alex's profound knowledge on this matter was too valuable to limit it to a small audience. Thus, they decided to turn the interview manuscript into a small book, rather than disseminate it via internet outlets.
