Photo of Hailu Shawel goes for 15,000 Birr

A photograph of Hailu Shawel, chairman of the All Ethiopian Unity party, was sold for 15,100 birr recently at the party’s headquarters.

The photo, originally expected to go for between 5.000 and 7,000 birr, was purchased for more than double its original estimated price, a party spokesman conformed.

The framed full photograph was one of the items auctioned at the event for raising money to the party.

The photo was purchased by an unidentified party supporter.

    This is crazy. Whoever bought this photo should get a16- year’s term.

    I agree with wesene. I bet that he must be the one who bought the photograph if that is true!

    I am not a supporter of Hailu Shawel or All Ethiopian Unity party. But, what is wrong with the party or Hailu supporet buying his picture. I don’t have a problem with any opposition party supporter, but for tplf or epdrf supporter, they should be executed.

    “sold for 15,100 birr” vs “goes for 15,000 Birr”. Discrepancy?
    All Ethiopian Unity party?!. Sounds good.

    These, all ethiopian unity party leaders, are a bunch of idiots. I heard that the person who bought the photo is Hailu Shawel’s own son. He took the photo as a tribute to his father’s decision to work with the dergs for the safety of his childs.

    hailu shawel would be the best thing that could happen to ethiopia like barak h. obama for the united states. you so called ethiopians keep denying yourself the basic things you should have as a nation; like human rights,freedom of speech.
    wake up and smell the coffee you idiiots do not lie to yourself
    we deserve more than what we have in ethiopia. believe on yourself and make that change, together we can do it. let
    us move together.
