I woke at 3.30am GMT this morning and began my day. At noon I hear Afewerk tekle has passed away in Ethiopia. Picture taken at the showing of my film in Addis 19 days ago in Ethiopia.

The video footage of this event was filmed by ETV and also by Samson Mulugeta. This picture taken by Samson Mulugeta.
