Gebru admired Woubshet’s ability to think without vengeance and vendetta even if he is writing from prison where he is held with a lot of injustices. It is remembered that, a few months ago, Woubshet was sent to solitary confinment when some pieces of his writings were found during sudden search. Thanks to people who cooperated, now his stories have gotten light of publication.
