Eritrea lost a great warrior today


Eritrean hero, warrior, father, husband and patriot, Major General Wuchu (RIP) - 1950-2014


Eritrea lost a great warrior today

By Bereket Kidane, 

It was announced by Eri-TV today that Major General Wuchu had died at the age of 64. The legendary warrior who is known by his nickname was a commander  and a military leader who dedicated his life to his country.  He became a warrior tegadalay at a young age and remained in the military as a senior leader following Eritrea’s independence, rising to the position of Chief of Staff to the Minister of Defense. General Wuchu is one of the giants of Eritrea’s armed struggle for independence.

As a commander with the EPLF during the fight for independence, he was present at many of Eritrea’s key battle victories as evidenced by the old video clips of interviews he gave before and after key battles that are often shown on Eri-TV. The legendary general had a brash demeanor and was known as a courageous and hyperconfident man who inspired a great deal  of confidence in the men and women he led in battles. There is a famous clip of him addressing the tegadelti troops he led during the Afabet Campaign that they were there that day because they had honored their invitation to participate in the final burial of the Dergue. His pronouncement elicited a roaring laughter and applause from the tegadelti who were ready to go on the attack. I hope someone will find that clip and post it in his honor.

The Government of Eritrea has announced that he will be buried this Saturday at Asmara’s Patriots Cemetery. My condolences to his beloved EDF, his 8 children and fellow warrior tegadeltis with whom he served.

  3. "Eritrea mourns the death of a gallant son Kubur gedim tegadalay Major General Gerezgher Andemariam (Wuchu) has passed away. May he rest in peace and may his family and Eritreans around the world, especially those who served with him throughout the years, find solace and comfort in the memories of his illustrious history and life in the service of his beloved Eritrea.

    He will be greatly missed and forever revered and remembered…for his unwavering dignity in service, his uncanny sense of humor and most of all, for his leadership.

  8. First RIP General Wuchu and my condolence to this family. Just a little correction Wuchu said during the Afabet campaign " they were there that day because they had honoured their invitation to participate in the final burial of the Nadow "not Dergue as you put it.

  10. He was really great. He was a popular general. As a general, he never went home for the day without personally meeting every mother who came by to ask about the whereabouts or death of her son or daughter. He felt he had a special responsibility to mothers. That is what all his colleagues are saying about him. That is the mark of a great man.
