Blogger’s Note: On this day 112 years ago one of Ethiopia’s patriot and model civil servant who served his country and his king loyally was born in Akele Gizai, Eritrea. His name was Lorenzo Taezaz. I have featured his biographical sketch in my publication last year. Due to space limitations, the biographical sketch I had to write about him was very short and brief. Dr. Daniel Kinde, one of the prominent scholars on Ethiopia’s political history has written more extensive article about this patriot and his admirable role for the cause of liberating Ethiopia from Italian occupation. The article was published in Ethiopian Review.
In the interest of educating present Ethiopian/Eritrean generation about their proud heritage and to commemorate the 112th birthday of this loyal servant to Ethiopia, here is a reprint of the 1991 article by Dr. Daniel about Blaten Geta Lorenzo Taezaz.
