Menelik's Bodyguard alive in Ethiopia –
The Oldest Man in History - Part 2

Zewde, speaks perfectly, hears perfectly, he has got beautiful teeth, he still walks. If you have seen most of the old people like him, most of them are either on their wheel chair or on their bed. Zewde has got good memories. He even did not forget names, places, time. And the astonishing part is, he tells story chronologically.

What seems to be difficult is; there is low level of record keeping in our country, let alone a poor guy like zewde, it would be amazing to find proper recordkeeping at the government offices without reasonable doubt. However, if Gerontology Research Group and Guinness World Records proved his age, Ato Zewde will be the first living legend in our planet.

    You know, one of the ten commandment in the bible is honor your father and mother and you will have a long life. That is the only commandment with a promise. So for those who want long life, obey your parents :) God being your heavenly father of cource

    igzeeo mahrene kristos....I pray for this world and us a a nation. Please stop the fighting! I was never asked to be baptized Ehtiopian but to overstand that we as human beings should not be jealous of each other or of what each person has in their riches. Respect, show respect and help each other if you can, if you cannot help,, let someone else do the job! RAStafari

    I can't believe my eye to see the world's long alive ethiopian residence. But u all know that ethiopia is @ the bottom in the world in life expectancy. Now we see the oldest man in the globe before and and olso now. Any ways his living condition now as i percieve from the movie is questionable for his survival beyond so pls those who are able try to help him. record his name for z coming ge..tnx

    This is history at its best. An eye witness account of historical timeline.
    I wonder why he should continue to suffer at this condition ? Are we not
    able to provide this gentleman with better living condition ? I am ashamed. I am
    more ashamed of the so-called reporters probing him with useless questions.
    A historian from AAU can go and document this using historical facts.

    I expected Ato Zewede to speak...why the narrator snatches the voice of the old man, I don't understand. He is a living history with an active first person voice. why would the narratory resort to a third person voice...I just could not understand. I would have liked to hear his voice and his account of history and personal life. Why was the old man cut short when he complained about the 'Wheat'?

    This would be a good opertunity for the Historians, as many of them do not have the habit of interviewing the real people. They always told us a distorted history of that country.

    They could tell us now what Minilik did for that country really.
