Bob Marley in Ethiopia?

Just curious. Perhaps I'm behind on the times, but has Bob Marley's body been exhumed and reburied in Ethiopia?

    It never happened

    In January 2005, it was reported that Rita Marley was planning to have her late husband's remains exhumed and reburied in Shashamane, Ethiopia.[6] In announcing the decision to move Marley's remains to Ethiopia, Rita Marley said: "Bob's whole life is about Africa, it is not Jamaica." There was a great deal of resistance to this proposal in Jamaica. The birthday celebrations for what would have been his 60th birthday on 6th February 2005 were celebrated in Shashamane for the first time, having previously always been held in Jamaica. Later that year his wife, Rita Marley, and son Damian denied that they intended to rebury Bob's remains in Ethiopia
