Ambassador Hagos talks about Dawit’s final hours

In the profession, Dawit Nega was a well-known Tigrigna performer. His funeral was held today, June 14th, 2022. Funerals are usually held within 24 hours of a person’s death, and the deceased is buried at a nearby cemetery the same day. There is only one crematorium in Addis Ababa, which is run by the Hindu community. Crematoria are not commonly used by Ethiopians to bury their dead. In Ethiopia, there is no tradition of holding a formal memorial service. After the funeral, almost everyone gathers for a few days, if not longer, to remember the deceased. The body must be interred within 24 hours of death, whether or not it has been embalmed, according to local legislation. Local authorities frequently keep embalmed bodies in cold storage for two to three days, especially if the surviving family desires to claim ownership of the body. Embalming services were also unavailable at points over the 24-hour timeframe. In the past, after being stored in cold storage for a few days while awaiting services, remains could simply be transferred out. Before being transported from Ethiopia to the United States, human remains must be embalmed. An Ethiopian funeral home will take care of the embalming. If the family of the dead has any concerns or questions about embalming, they should contact the funeral home where the body will be received. To obtain a mortuary certificate, the body must be embalmed.
