The ABBAY WONZ was launched as MENGISTU H.M.

I recall from somewhere he was the President (or whatever) of Ethiopia who fell out of favour while the ship was fitting out!

Mengistu Haile Mariam see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mengistu_Haile_Mariam

Well he remained in power ... and became President ... long after his ship was renamed! But I'm sure there was some political reason for it?

Thanks, duly updated on the Sunderland site!
Fine ships but at 30 plus already, surprised she has lasted so long and under same flag.
