Teddy Afro Speaks on the Situation in South Africa

1 min read

Nelson Mandela wrote in his Autobiography “Ethiopia always has a special place in my imagination and the prospect of visiting Ethiopia attracted me more strongly than a trip to France, England, and America combined. I felt I would be visiting my own genesis, unearthing the roots of what made me an African. ”

This is a very interesting part about Ethiopia, South Africa, The African continent and Nelson Mandela.
We, are saddened by the fact that several Ethiopians and other fellow African brothers and sisters have been left dead or seriously hurt and fearing for their lives due to a wave of xenophobic violence hit in South Africa.
We urge the people and government of South Africa to grant them immediate safety and the necessary legal protection.
Such behaviour dehumanizes not only the victims, but more so, the perpetrators .
On May 25,1963 during the establishment of OAU, it’s first president H.E. Haile Selassie, the then emperor of Ethiopia said “History teaches us that unity is strength, and cautions us to submerge and overcome our differences in the quest for common goals,to strive, with all our combined strength, for the path to true African brotherhood and unity. ”
As Africans we can either fall, or rise together.
The choice right now is in South Africans’ hand.
Peace be unto the world!
Teddy Afro and Amleset M.

  1. is he taking part in miss world beauty pageant, what is peace for the world talk? how about peace in so called utopia?

  2. What is happening in South Africa on Ethiopians and the rest of our African brothers and sisters is really very terrible shameful. It is a moral crises for South Africa government which contributed either intentionally or negligently to this xenophobic action. But we have no also morally responsible government in Ethiopia and cannot expect to see or hear what its reaction is. AU since it is practically unfunctional no more to expect from it. But artists like Ted Afro should say something and and react aganist this xenophobic action on the continent level by making arrangments with artists from other Africans and show not only solidarity to the victims but also give lesson to South Africans and other groups of similar sentment.

  3. Thank Teddy and Amleset,
    You your are the real reflection of humanity in love. Your deep sympathy and concern will give our brothers and sisters a hope and better tomorrow. We hope our suffer won’t exist longer than what we have been through. Our Almighty God will visit its own people and change everything in a fraction of seconds.
    Please keep your prayers alive.
    God Bless you and your children.
    May God protect its people and our country Ethiopia.
