Ethiopians: Come Out And Celebrate The Caribbean Day Festival In North Vancouver

In my previous post, I wrote about the Surrey Fusion Festival. I attended this fusion event. Again, it was a great event with many nations participating. I was sad, as last year, that Ethiopia was not represented. This year, South Africa and Nigeria were there.

I agree that the vast majority of African leaders are corrupt, but not all of them. One great African leader, who was not corrupt at all and lived a simple life, and loved by everyone in his country, by all Africans and by the entire world was Julius Nyerere of Tanzania.
