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.
