 Libya: The return of colonialist bondage (2)
As for the United Nations, the organisation has achieved very little in terms of solving conflicts around the world. It is hard to see what is united in United Nations. Why is the organisation always sending what it calls “Humanitarian Aid” only after the damaged might have been done? read more

 Libya: The return of colonialist bondage (1)
 The suffering of Libyans has just begun. For there can never be true liberation when your oppressor is the one who defines what your freedom should be. The ousting of Colonel Gaddafi, Libyan leader for 42 years, by the rebels backed western forces especially NATO is indeed a victory for the west whose fixation on Gaddafi’s Libya has become worrisome.read more


INEC: Their Trust Duped
I did not feel any anger, sorrow, or disbelieve when I heard that Jega’s INEC had postponed the general assembly election earlier scheduled for April 2. Mr. Jega boldly announced on the D-Day that the election had been shifted to April 4. He shocked the nation when some voters were still waiting to exercise their voting rights…read more

We’re all analysing with a first class self-deceit. How can we sorrow about the postponed election when we have already projected Nigeria as doomed? Don’t we understand INEC is part of that doom we have been mouthing about? To be surprised is to be part of the problem and I tell you why... read more

In defence of Bode George
This article is a sequel to the one I wrote when my dearest was convicted by one inexperienced Justice Olubunmi Oyewole to 28 years imprisonment without an option of fine in 2009. I titled the article, “My Hubby, Bode George (BG) as a Scapegoat”. I will not say much in this second part though read more


The quality of allowing other people to have their own attitudes or beliefs, or to behave in a particular way, even if you do not agree or approve is undoubtedly the justice that can lead to everlasting peace which unfortunately is gradually eluding the human race. read more

By African News Hungary


Africans and friends of Africans in Hungary and environs marked Africa's golden independent jubilee at District 7 Town Hall in downtown Budapest on August 27. Tagged African festival, it was organized to commemorate the 50th independence of African states which broke from British, 

French and Belgian control in the 60's
The first part of the event saw invited speakers mounting the rostrum to pass their messages across to the invited guests who were later treated to different African and Afro cultural music performed by Sheriban Moroccan Band, African Melody Band and Luiso Dominguez & the Afro-Cuban Band.. 

Speakers include Mr. Gibril Deen,, who delivered the opening speech. The Mahatma Gandhi Human Rights Organization President went memory lane telling the audience how Africans fought their colonial exploiters who had gone to the region to scramble for Africa's natural resources. 

Dr. Tadesse Eyassu who was also the moderator, spoke about Ethiopia's role in the struggle for independence. Dr. Horvath Peter, legal consultant, centered his speech on immigration and his displeasure over the issue of settlement in Hungary. 

AHU representatives, Dr. Balogh Sándor, President and Silasi Ildikó, used the occasion to inform the guests about the organization unrelenting efforts to commit itself to African development. Mr. Honti Vilamos, President Antifascist Association and Mr. Farkas Antal, President, Roma Minority also contributed their respective opinions to the success of the event.   

Although many guests came late causing panic in some quarters, African News Hungary gathered that the event was well-attended.

Old Nigerian Passport terminates in December 31
The Federal government of Nigeria has said that the old Nigerian passport will terminate in
December 31, 2010 paving the way for the new e-passport.

The minister of state for ministry of internal affairs Humphrey Abba urged Nigerians in
diasporas who are still carrying the old passport to acquire the e-passport in order to avoid
disappointment when travelling.

The minister said the Federal Government will deploy enough mobile machines to the United
Kingdom and Washington to fast track the issuance of the e-passport to Nigerians living
abroad.

‘December 31, 2010 is the dead line for those who already have the machine readable
passport to go and register on line through the Immigration Service for the issuance of the e-
passport. If by 31 December you do not have the passport, you will have yourself to blame
and that is why we are doing the best we can do through the Nigeria Immigration Service.’’

Authorities Deny Torture of Detainees
Authorities overseeing the Nyirbátor closed camp in the eastern Hungary have said that at no time and under no circumstance were detainees under their supervision beaten and, or denied their rights.

This was disclosed during a visit by a human rights organisation which had received a petition signed by ten of the detainees alleging abuse of their rights at the closed camp.

The head of the camp, Mr. Kristian, said that detainees are being treated according to the European Union normative which clearly stipulates detainee’s rights. His assertion collaborate what the immigration and the parliament on minority rights had earlier forwarded to the Mahatma Gandhi Human Rights Organisation in response to the latter’s observation.

During the visit, it was disclosed that about 252 asylum seekers from 36 different countries (Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia, Nigeria, Georgia, Palestine, Serbia, Iran, Sudan, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan and so on) are being held.

Although most of the detainees claimed they had escaped persecution for political or religious belief in their respective countries, authorities doubt such claim saying majority are economic refugees who often make things difficult by concealing their true identity.

“But we will find out where they come from and deportation depends on their nationality,” said Kristian, adding that we can only keep them “here for six months”.

Whilst no detainees have been kept in the camp beyond the maximum six months, they complained bitterly about the general condition of the camp.

“Our condition is very bad and critical,” said Nigerian Uba George, who introduced himself as a professional boxer. “We are locked up all day. We can’t bear it anymore.

Looking dejected and saddened, Adegboyega Ayeni and Ademola Sefiu said that they regretted leaving Greece to come and face this kind of confinement. They pleaded to be sent back to Greece, where they hope to continue their life in spite of the economic problems they may be facing in that region.

Not all detainees in the camp are actually asylum seekers.

“The situation in the prison is even better than this place” (deportation camp), said Peter Muhagama from Tanzania who is being kept for other crime. “There are no activities, no news or whatsoever”.

Abimbola Ijitimehin, who said he was arrested on his way back to Bosnia where he had been residing before running into trouble in Italy, claimed he was not seeking asylum. “I am not asking anything from the Hungarian government,” he asserted. “Let them take me to my country – Nigeria. I don’t have any problem in my country. As a footballer in Bosnia, I was doing fine until I ran into trouble in Italy”.

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
