  1. the quality of your page is decreasing from day to day. the title is unrelated with the content. So old pictures, all from kenya and yemen and ethiopia. Title says southern africa.

  2. Thank you for bringing out the plight of Ethiopians. The pictures show the sorry state of my people. They are running away from the belly of the beast. Please let us do what we can to change the situation. Churches and mosques ought to do something to alleviate the Ethiopian situation.

  3. It is a mystery, What is going to happen 10,20 years from know? What happened to us? Who is doing this? Why?????? I am calling the mothers, the mothers of those children to be the lioness!!! ” DO NOT TOUCH MY CHILD”
