Meeting Jesus in Prison – Tamrat Layne

Tamrat Layne

Tamrat Layne is the former Prime Minister of Ethiopia. During the 1980′s, he was a leader of the Ethiopian People’s Democratic Movement. When Mengistu was overthrown in 1991, Layne became one of the three-man EPRDF-TPLF junta ruling the country and then in the democratically-elected government, the other members being Meles Zenawi (President) and Siye Abraha (Minister of Defense). His position was Prime Minister from June 6, 1991 until August 22, 1995. Tamrat served 12 years in prison after he was ousted. While in prison, he met Jesus – literally. He now lives in Denver with his family.
