Celebrating With Angola

News Feature 
 By Hakeem Babalola

Scores of guests from different nationalities which include government officials, diplomats, CEOs, and NGO’s converged on Thursday November 11 at Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal to commemorate the day Angolans freed themselves from the Portuguese rule.

Termed the 35th of the Proclamation of the Independence of the Republic of Angola, the occasion obviously was used to mark self-rule as well as cement the on-going friendship between Angola and Hungary.

The Angolan ambassador to Hungary, H.E Joao Miguel Vahekeni, re-affirmed such rapport when he told guests that the bilateral relation between his country and Hungary remained stronger as ever.

“The bilateral relations between Angola and Hungary are getting stronger and stronger,” he said in his welcoming speech.

Describing the situation further, Mr. Vahekeni combined adjective and noun such as extraordinary, perseverance, peace, development, hope, security and prosperity to express the joy of political and economic salvation in his country of birth.

He continued with fascinating reminiscences of the generations of 50’s and 60’s that opened the way for the future; summing it up as “the beginning of future cooperation”. Vahekeni also used the occasion to thank Angolan friends for their support.  

Meanwhile Konde, Angolan musician and songwriter who was flown in for the commemoration expressed his shock to see Angolans in Hungary speaking the language of their host with such fluency and accuracy.

Konde whose real name is Kondua Martins Dias and who was in Hungary for the first time told African News Hungary that he couldn’t imagine such level of development regarding integration. “It’s just fantastic to hear them speaking Hungarian even though I do not understand a word”.  

Music was supplied by African Centre led by its director, Frank Ekuidoko; while the two dancers that accompanied Konde lured some guests to the dancing floor with electrifying body shake.

African News Hungary also gathered that the occasion provided warm and friendly atmosphere for mingling as guests were overheard discussing various topics from politics to business to cultural integration to social issue and reconciliation.

Ironically, true reconciliation was part of the magic that eventually restored peace and tranquillity to the oil and diamond rich south-central African nation in 2002 after 27 years of intense civil war that claimed many lives and properties.

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
