Ceremony in memory of the guard Samuel Salehou Setataw
On June 14th, 2018, the embassy of France paid tribute to the memory of the young guard Samuel Salehou Setataw who died on May 28th, 1991.
This young Ethiopian died for France at the age of 27 years old during the last hours of the fall of the DERG. He was part of the guard detachment and ensured the security of the embassy.
This ceremony was an opportunity for the ambassador of France to praise the dedication of all the Ethiopian guards in the service of the embassy.
It was also a beautiful testimony of solidarity between several generations of guards gathered to show their attachment to the memory of their comrade.
