Africa is making progress, says Takalani Netshienzhe

This year’s Africa Day was marked in Budapest at the Central European University on May 22.

The event celebrated every year on May 25 worldwide is to commemorate the 1963 founding of the organization of Africa Unity now known as African Union.

Unlike in the past, this year’s celebration started with lectures and speeches from distinguished guests including the Deputy State Secretary for Global Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, János Hóvári.

The central message sent across by the speakers is the relationship between Hungary and the African continent described as rapid growing, especially with the northern parts of the continent.

The improvement in migration and integration as well as peace and security were also considered as important ‘due to the fall out of the Arab springs which has brought new conflicts in certain parts of Africa’.

The head of the African Diplomatic Corps, Takalani Netshienzhe, smiled her gratefulness while thanking the host country for its support and efforts in strengthening the relationship and development with the African continent.

 Ms.Netshienzhe who is also the Ambassador of the South Africa embassy said that Africa is making progress in different sectors most especially political stability which obviously is the gateway to investment.

Notable at the event were Professor Matteo Fumagilli, the dean of the faculty of International Relations and European Studies at the Central European University; Justice Richard Goldstone former member of the South Africa Constitutional Court; Iskander Ghattas, Vice-president of the Human Rights Council of Egypt.

Although some guests observed that this year’s event was without much fanfare, three young children beautifully clad in their Egyptian traditional dress recited a poem to the delight of the guests.

There was no drumming and dancing, yet there was a lot to eat from different cuisine on the continent as Mr. Hóvári was led to inspect kiosks showing the diversity of cultures from the continent.

Algeria, Angola, Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa and Tunisia all displayed the stuff they are made of.

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
