    RIP our brother. I wonder why God does not keep long the good people and he take them away while they are still so young. Why he does not take the many older cancer generation who are battling to kill other humans. I watched his interview; I felt he was an angle like person. They way he speak, the way he reason, what a wonderful young man we lost. He said yenie Sra yemiyants mehon alebet ale and positive mehon albet; Enie negative alfelgim. I wonder if there is a system in Ethiopia that empowers beautiful person like him.

    My condolence to his family and his friends. His interview, his mellowness, gentleness aches your heart. Rest in peace. That is the destiny of every mortal human.

    Could this be a reggae spell? Bob Marley, the king of reggae, also died before his 37th birth day.

    Comfort to his family and friends, particularly his kids.

    I want to say to thing

    One Ethiopians must checkup their health once a year…every on no exception…

    Second:- we all should have life,and health insurance..instead of collecting money in emergency …his life would have saved if we didn’t wasted time collecting money to send him to Kenya hospital.

    For the health insurance to work we should make health checkup our tradition..
