Empty funeral tents; a passerby exposes regime

The next video shot by a citizen reporter shows one of the many funeral tents built by the regime to remember the late Prime Minister of Ethiopia Meles Zenawi. Despite what the regime has successively been showing ” a large mass of public weeping and sorrowed with the death of the PM” , this video shows an empty tent with no attendance. The man that is accidently shot in this clip is heard saying to another woman “Go to the tent, if you talk/say something, they will pay you five birr”. What the State TV doesn’t show, citizen media do as in the next clip.
