General Merid Negussie family reunion in Ethiopia 


Merid Nigussie was Ethiopia’ Defense Chief of Staff during colonel Mengistu Hailemariam’s government. He was involved in the coup attempt in 1989 but later took his own life rather than surrendering after the coup was foiled. 

There was a family reunion recently that his siblings organized.  Who was Merid Nigussie and what was his upbringing like? 

Video featured below could answer some key questions. Watch it (in Amharic).
