Dereje came to Addis with 3 of his friends from Weliso. They all used to shine shoes and go to school in their hometown. They came to Addis because they were told they’d get better jobs and earnings. After their arrival to Addis, people who suspected the guy that brought them here took all of them to the police and he was arrested because he confessed to planning to sell the boys. The boys were lucky that the people took them to the police before the guy’s plan was executed. None of their parents know where they are so they are probably very worried by now.
