Prince Alamayu

Great Lives (Sissay)


There’s been concern in 2023 because Buckingham Palace has reportedly refused Ethiopian requests to return the remains of Prince Alemayehu, an Ethiopian prince who was trafficked to the UK in 1868.

Ethiopian-British poet and presenter, Lemn Sissay, is one high profile figure who has joined a campaign to repatriate the prince’s remains to Ethiopia.

In this 2012 episode of Great Lives, Lemn Sissay joins host Matthew Parris to discuss the short life of Prince Alamayu and the parallels with his own.
