Sons and Daughters of Africa /SADA/
We the sons and daughters of Africa have
observed that on Sunday May 23/2010 32 Million Ethiopians went to the polls
and cast their votes, for a government of their choice to run their affairs
for the next five years.
During this historic day, Ethiopia has again
demonstrated that, Africa is no more on the receiving end of the pendulum
that wiggles and waddles to the instructions of some quarters as pertains to
democracy and good governance.
Ethiopians who are the torch-bearers of the
African anti-colonial struggle for independence and sovereignty, by
defeating, an European colonial aggressor in 1896, at the battle of Adowa,
have again shown to the world that Africa too could no doubt hold a
democratic election, in a peaceful and civilized manner.
The May 23/2010 Ethiopian election has
incontestably shown that Africa has mustered a democratic culture, long
perceived to be the sole monopoly of the so called civilized world.
We sons and daughters of Africa have been
enthused and encouraged by the political maturity and the level of
democratic culture exemplified by the Ethiopian people and would seize upon
this opportunity to congratulate them for a marvelous job well done.
