We have visited HE Girma W/Ghiorghis, President of the Fed. Republic of Ethiopia, Thursday Sept 13th.
He had requested personally to see Prof. Marco, whose explorations and work he has been following since two years through the media and recounts from his personal friend Arianna Briganti, former head of the GTZ Harar Office, German State Cooperation.
He has watched with attention a 20 min presentation of new finds along the Exteded East Routes in his State Room at the Former Haile Selassie Palace in Addis.
He has encouraged us to tranform the Kundudo to a park, his main interest amongst a number of activities and finds presented.
He has prepared a letter asking the Italian Ambassador to free Prof. Marco from his italian state employee duties to be able to live permanently in Ethiopia and pursue his voluntary job here fully.
