Exiled Ethiopian Journalist Poisoned and died in Kenya.

A prominent Ethiopian journalist, Million Shurube, died in Nairobi, Kenya, where he had been in exile since September 2014.

Million, father of a son, passed away on 13, October 2014 at Kenyata hospital at the age of 33. The cause of his death is still unclear.
Million was one of a dozen of Ethiopian journalists forced in to exile recently having been harassed, threatened, accused, and charged with fabricated terrorism offenses. He fled from Ethiopia on September 2014 to escape from imprisonment.
Affectionately known as “Milli”, Million Shurube served as a journalist for more than 10 years. He was the founder and managing editor of a weekly magazine “Maraki”, and had worked for different publications including the now-defunct Abay, Ethiop, and Google newspapers.
Million was also the author of a book discussing the deep rooted social problems in Ethiopia.
Reports indicate that the journalist got sick 20 days after he left his country, and finally died having suffered for more than 20 days. Some weeks ago, he was told to have got Taifoid at a clinic and used to receive medical treatment.
