    Thanks Mr. Redwan, for sharing your concern on the media. This is actually, the responsibility of caring government about it’s citizens. Don’t give ear for the looser diaspora dogs like ESAT

    Dear, H.E , Redwan,

    Sorry to tell u this but Ethiopian government r not responsible for “So called Ethiopian refugee” in South Africa…when u become refugee that means u give up being Ethiopian citizen ….once u give up ur citizen right u fail under UN protection…therefore Ethiopian government make sure there citizen value respected by own citizen first.. those so called refuge where not the one who where protesting against Ethiopia, they where joining Gim7 and supportting EAST…do u think we forget u where wishing Arab revolution, red yellow and green revolution…on mama Ethiopian do u forget were instigating war between Egypt and Ethiopia u were wishing evil on Ethiopia…when Ethiopian official went to south Africa u were insulting them refusing to help with Nile dam bond and even preventing other from buying bond….no no Ethiopian government is not. Responsible for u r in ur own…let alone help u. They the government can percent u or deny u return back home if u don’t have proper document…. even if u return to Ethiopia u should reapply just like any refugee to get back Ethiopian citizenship just like Eritrean refugee…and should have to take u ten years in refugee campus outside Addis ……now u might wonder how about innocent Ethiopian refugee …I have no problem with them…all they have to day is register with Ethiopian embassy and get green card if possible take part with Ethiopian economy by buying Nile dam etc….show u r respecting Ethiopian law while u r south Africa ….u have a right to demonstrations but u have no right for hate speech …u do that u pay for it…for example burning Tplf flagor any other flag is not allowed if u burn then u cant ask the next day Ethiopian government to help u…u cant join GIMP they r terrorist…u do That at ur own risk.

    ANC, one of the oldest political party in Africa Showed its immaturity after all these Years, what a shame.

    It is a difficult problem to resolve. African refugees who opens small businesses or get employed usually do so in South Africa black neighborhoods. The black South Africans are mostly economically marginalized. As a result when they assume newcomer blacks are taking away their jobs, or doing business, while employing none of the natives, but brothers and friends from their own country, they might have a resentment. Some blame the Zulu king speech might have triggered the whole episode. I disagree. The resentment of African immigrants are there whether he spoke against immigrants or not. As long as native black Africans remain economically marginalized, the problem will not go away. The government might try to suppress it now. But it will resurface a gain. The more South African blacks assume, not necessarily true, they become third class citizens in their own country, they revolt in their own way. No power could stop that. To change their hostility towards African immigrants, their economic status has to improve. Does that happen? I do not bet on it.

    Mr. Red One, you know how you know keep wathing your lines of politics in the country using your “Federal Police” dogs but you don’t care about your citizens any where out side the country.
    You always watching your own benefits not peoples.
