Mahari Seghid writes for Africa Refugee News in Berlin. Originally from Eitrea Ethiopia, he fled to the Sudan and finally landed in Italy where he spent 30 years. In Berlin since 1998 he said, “Attending the American International School in Italy saved me.”
He speaks excellent English, as well as Italian, German and his native Ethiopian. Mahari is an enthusiastic blogger with opinions on every subject. He is notorious for asking a question at every press conference and, in recognition of this, he was allowed the last question at the last film press conference which was with Costa-Gavras and the film Eden a l’Ouest.
