Washington DC ( Little Ethiopa ) -A Descendant Of A Prominent African General ( Dejazmatch ) In the Era of Menelik II who was behind the great escape of a future Iconic Ethiopian Emperor Menelik II from the Maqdala prison of Emperor Theodore IV honors African American and Ethiopian veterans in the Sister-City of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The  honor and priviledge to represent Ethiopians in the 12th Wreath Laying Ceremony in-front of the African American Civil War Memorial in commemoration of the Pan-African Victory of the Battle of Adwa goes to the descendents of an African General ( Dejazmatch ) Germame  Wolde Hawariat. 

The General gained great prominence after he planned and executed the grand escape of  the ten year old young prince Menelik ( later Emperor Menelik II ) from the Maqdela prison of Emperor Tewodros  IV. The future emperor of Ethiopia lost his father Negus ( King ) Haile Melekot from natural causes while his army was being pursued by a very powerful army of Emperor Tewodros during his campaign to subjugate the kingdom of Shoa and consolidate his empire.

The descendants of the General have selected their president, Dr. Abebe Haregewoin to represent them for the 12th Wreath Laying Ceremony in the sister city of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The honoree is an Ethiopian medical doctor and the President of Abo Mahiber. He is a resident of Wheaton, Maryland in the Montgomery county and a sister-city of Gondor, Ethiopia. Haregewoin was trained as a radiation oncologist at Harvard medical school where he was also on faculty for about a decade. He has also a Ph. D. in Immunology from the University of Oslo. 

Haregewoin joins Washington DC historian Chuck Hicks on Sunday, March 4, 2018 to honor African American and Ethiopian veterans who fought for freedom for black people of the world. 

Members of Abo Mahiber has made a great selection as Haregewoin's main passion is Ethiopian history and maintaining  an active presence in social media to promote and teach his passion to all interested parties. He told the publisher of Little Ethiopia Magazine  “ My other passion is the promotion of peace, tolerance and love among Ethiopians. “ 

The world needs people like him who preach peace and tolerance in the World.
