A fine example of turning swords into coffee machine, er ... plowshare. You know what I mean:
In his workshop in Mekele, just 120 km from Ethiopia's border with Eritrea, Azmeraw Zeleke is turning burnt-out shells into cylinders used in coffee machines. ...
He told me he got the idea nine years ago when he was doing maintenance work.
"I saw some shells being sold for a different purpose and I studied them.
"They were used for washing clothes or crushing things. After studying them I came up with the idea of using them as a cylinder for a coffee machine."
