To date, he still stands as one of the country's most outspoken freedom fighters to denounce the pillaging, torturing, and killing of Ethiopian people. Abé's most renowned piece of work remains the 1962 classic “Aliwalidim”, an introspective satire from the perspective of a baby who refuses to emerge from his mother's womb.
