PEOPLE & SOCIETY

United African Diaspora Community Hungary is born
Hakeem Babalola


Africans in Hungary has finally got a forum to address a common interest affecting their lives in Hungary.


The newly formed organisation which is registered under the name, “Egyesűlt Afrikai Diaszpóra Közösség Magyarországon” (EADKM) with number 01-02-0016111, held its first founding members meeting on Thursday April 14, 2016.

Eight of the ten founders were present in an atmosphere full of joy and relief.

Of course one can understand the emotion displaced by the founding members who seem determined to support the future of Africa.

It is common to see Hungarians and non-Hungarians alike parading themselves as representing Africans at important functions deliberating on African issues. Apparently many Africans see this as disingenuous, hence the need to take mater into their own hands.

At the meeting, the founding members congratulated one another for making it possible an organisation that was long overdue. 

It was highlighted that Africans in Hungary have been blessed with individuals doing well in their different endeavours, but such blessing should now be used for group effort.

Described as a non-profit commune, each member took turn to express his opinion.

-All together they agreed that the success or failure depends on each one of them, saying each member must have great commitment.  

-There must be awareness that the organisation is born therefore it must market itself

-There must be solidarity to help each other especially the new immigrants in Hungary 

There was a moment of promise of commitment during which one founding member confessed  he was doubtful at the beginning but now he was more than happy adding that the "founding members" must work hard - to support the future of Africa

The founding members come from across the continent: Sudan, Mozambique, Mauritania, Congo, Ghana, Gambia, Ethiopia, Uganda and Nigeria

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
