Major General Geregiher Andemariam 'Wuchu' Passed Away

Major General Geregiher Andemariam 'Wuchu' passed away at the age of 64 yesterday, state media disclosed.

The late veteran fighter was receiving medical treatment in Asmara for an unspecified illness.

Maj. General Geregiher joined the armed struggle to liberate Eritrea from Ethiopian occupation in 1971. After independence, he became the Chief of Staff of the Eritrean Defense Force.

Presidential Adviser Yemane Ghebreab described General ‘Wuchu’ as "humane, down to earth, ardent patriot, an able and brave commander."

The senior commander leaves behind his wife and 8 children.

The funeral ceremony of Maj. General Gebregziabher will take place on Saturday (March 8) at Asmara Patriots Cemetery at 10 AM.

On behalf of Madote, we extend our condolences to the family and friends of General Geregiher Andemariam. We thank him for over 40 years of sacrifice and service for our country and people.

  2. Even though im not supporter if the regime, I feel sad about General Witchus death. He was hero during struggle and during Badme war (like many Eritreans). Many heroes lost their hero status after 2001 and Witchu was one of them.

    RIP Gen. Witchu

    He was so hero, it is very sad to lose someone very important to our country like Maj general wuchu.


  6. Eritrea has lost one of its gallant sons. He is a hero, he joined Hizbawi Hailitat at the age of 21 and served Eritrea for 43 years. A great commander and Eritrean defence forces chief of staff.
    Jigna aynebren eyu, tariku yu zwres.

  7. How come he lost his status moron, he was EDF chief of staff.

    Goitom send him please at least a fitting cup. Don't you see in his foto his cup is so big for his head. Or his head too small for his cup. Hamed dibe nadew tebeges!! We are in Wkau Eez time. 8 children and one dead at least, man he got a lot of eggs. Wtschu will be much more remembered for his ignorance and the many things he said.

    1. @ wuchu wuchina

Terdika kekwene tesfa yegbre ata agame. Agame dea etie reesukum bako eiu enber.

  9. Eritrean tv stated that the general is the father of 8 children but not disclosed from how many women.
    He was hero to the date eritrea liberated but not after that.

    Goitom you agame! pls send Wutschu a fitting cup if you are Eritrean. You see poor wutschu he fought so much... and he never earned a fitting cup. Look at his picture, his cup engulfs his head. Just send him a cup that will fit his head. Remember wutschu got a lot of eggs, he will be remembered for all the things he said :) Such are your heros :)

  13. I was deeply saddened to hear of a hero MG. Wuchu passing. MG Wuchu was a hero and a significant influence for good in many tegadelti's lives. May God bless his soul.

  20. Again RIP Gen. Witchu. May God bless your soul!

  21. I thank him for serving our country. My condolences and thank you for their sacrifice to his family. May he rest in peace.
