Bewketu has taken the Ethiopian literary scene by storm ever since his debut Nwari Alba Gojowoch appeared. Several years ago he won the prestigious 2007 Central African Journalists Association award for his story Ityane Atsba ( ), which was later made into a feature film. He is the winner of the 2012 Central African Jeunesse Auteurs Merits award for his novel Kintechi ( ), and in 2009 he was named by Time Out Africa as a New Afrikan Writer to Watch. In the same year he was named by Amharic Life magazine as the Best Young Author. In 2013 he won the Meda Chesselle award for the novel Peyot ( ), and in 2014 he won the Torch Awards for Fiction as Short Story Writer of the Year.

His career, both as a performer and an author, is divided between stage and screen.He makes his debut as a playwright in 2019 with Chefe, which means Chief in Amharic, a country that traces its roots to the ancient legendary Kingdom of Shewa in the South of Ethiopia. He has also written and performed several one-person plays: Atsba, Beti, Berga, Bete Kulli, and Gebet. In 2013 he wrote and directed Kintechi, a film about a black female police officer who quits the police force after she is unable to find justice in her cousin’s death. This was later turned into a television series for the Ethiopian Broadcasting Commission. He has also written and directed several documentaries for the Ethiopian Radio and Television. In 2008 he released his first book of stories titled Poems from the Stone. In 2017 he released his second book of short stories Anam Arashom, and in 2019 his first childrens story Allo.

Born in 1970, Bewketu studied journalism at the Addis Ababa University and has a master degree in psychology. He has published two novels and a collection of essays. He has won several literary prizes including the African Liberatura Award for KeAmen Bashager. Bewketu lives in the United States. Bewketu has argued that writing is a constant process of examination of the conscience of a writer: it is a question of self-examination, a collection of ideas and information, a series of interrogations and critical tasks. Writing is to educate the reader and the writer, it says, and to give voice to concerns often suppressed in the public sphere. It is to critique and to innovate. This is the first of a series of stories that I will be republishing from KeAmen Bashager. I wanted to share a collection of poems that are of particular interest to me and the ones that are strongly reflective of the cultural and political context of my country. Because the writing in KeAmen Bashager speaks about and reflects on some of the things that have made our country vulnerable to corruption, nepotism, intolerance, and ethnic animosity, the writings in this collection are very important. The writer looks at what has led to this state of affairs, the cultural, social and political conditions in our countries, and the very needs of a person or society to heal the ailments that result. The poems in his last book, KeAmen Bashager, (meaning a polite request) are set in the world of governmental affairs. He uses the language and poetry to portray the characters and their various roles in the country, their cunning and back-stabbing to take over the country to protect their status. They maneuver in and out of the ivory towers and palaces, past the political minefields, all for a quick buck. Bewketu uses the language and language-based humor to tackle the modern issues faced in Ethiopia, and he does it in a unique and playful fashion. He ridicules and laugh at these characters, making them look like buffoons or fools, for taking us on a tour of their silly antics and make life seem almost comical. Of course, he doesn’t forget to put a twist in the tail as he challenges the nonsense they do by adding his own pieces of wisdom. 5ec8ef588b
