On September 25 2019, Mdrebahri reported that brother Girmai Kidane (Wedi Filippo), who was born to a patriotic family in 1942 in Segheneiti, in Akele-Guzai province, had died on September 24 2019, aged 77, in Milan, Italy.
Mdrebahri has noted that, although most Eritrean websites and political organisations covered his death and paid tribute to him, the regionalist, narrow minded and vindictive owner of Meskerem.net has deliberately kept silent and did not mention, even in passing, the death of this patriotic public intellectual and indefatigable political and human-rights activist.
Just so that the readers of Mdrebahri are informed, for the same reactionary and parochial reasons, the crass and opportunist owner of Meskerem.net has also banned Mdrebahri.com from appearing in the list of links on his website.
Forward with the struggle for justice and democracy!
Justice seekers will prevail!
