He is probably the only person currently living in the country, and not imprisoned, to write blunt critique of the government.

Mesfin has been the foremost Ethiopian public intellectual for at least the past four decades. His a book reveals his personal thoughts of an Ethiopia with a glorious past, an Ethiopia in political, social and economic turmoil today and the rise over the horizon of an Ethiopia whose best days are yet to come. In my view, Prof. Mesfin took upon the cross of speaking the truth to power in Ethiopia in the second half of the last century. He is today a witness and a victim of thugs who cling to power through international panhandling. Perhaps it is more accurate to say he has been the voice of reason for his attempts to use his knowledge and expertise to help guide successive tyrannical regimes away from bad governance and commission of crimes against humanity.
