The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia this week announced that it is working to return 40,000 Ethiopian migrants from Saudi Arabia.  

The Ethiopian Migrants were in a difficult situation in Saudi Arabia following what many Ethiopians familiar with the matter say is a hostile Saudi policy towards Ethiopian migrants. 

The Ethiopian government said it will complete returning them to Ethiopia within two weeks time. 

The first 380 Ethiopian migrants arrived at Bole International Airport on Saturday in the morning. They were greeted by State Minister of Peace, Firealem Shibabaw, and spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia, Dina Mufti, upon arrival at Bole International Airport. 

According to a report by state media, Ethiopia has already formed a committee drawn from different government departments , including the Job Creation Commission,  to work on job creation for returning Ethiopian migrants. 

The government also claims that an arrangement is in place, through the National Disaster Prevention Commission,  to cater for the returning migrants until they reintegrate to the communities they came from.

  1. They will go back and try again, at least many of them. 40,000 will return now and another 40,000 may be marching for the same destination as we speak. The vicious cycle will go on and on for years and decades to come as long as people there continue to multiply like worms with no livable jobs available for the working age population. What These young people see around them is the success of those very few who made it to Riyadh or Jedda. They see and hear money sent to relatives and houses being built for parents. That is tempting and intoxicating. They hear exaggerated stories how so many of their countrymen/women made it to Jedda, got high paying jobs there and then hop up a vessel to Europe on the way to Minnesota. That is intoxicating to a point of maddening. This mass trip to the ‘Saudi’ paradise will have no end in sight.

  2. Like many said, foreign enemies are sending terrorists along in order to give ethiopia. Government more work, to overwhelm as the future qar not only be fron neighbor but these terrorists coming via plane will live aming the peole for 2 year or so and will be activated. Rehab will not work cuz they are programed to kill trained in egypt. The govt should hace designated different airport $or them and keep them in the plane for minths intil they are screened, but bring out the innocents. Too late.

    Good News! In fact FANTASTIC NEWS.

    1. “Ethiopia announced that it is working to return 40,000 Ethiopian migrants from Saudi Arabia”. 

    2. “The first 380 Ethiopian migrants arrived at Bole International Airport”
     
    3. “Ethiopia will cater for the returning migrants until they reintegrate to the communities they came from. “

    4. WOW!!! That is a MIRROR of an ancient independent Black African Country — ETHIOPIA to live up to its VERY Rich History — NOT less than any Country around the GLOBE. .

    5. May that example be a catalyst for the rest of Black African States and establish humble PRIDE and ERASING the ugly colonial history — once for all. It can be done — if only NEW, YOUNG, Energetic Black Africans rise to the historical challenge. It can be done; it should be done by any sacrifice.

    6. Less than the above is THE END in the true meaning of the word and Africa will continue to be what colonial marauders designed it to be, without a tiny input from the custodian of the Black African Continent. History will then continue to believe that Black Africans are NATURALLY incapable of protecting and saving themselves No wonder the colonial powers ignored the Black African People and freely occupied themselves cutting Africa into pieces. PROVE ME WRONG — it will be my delight.

    Thank You borkena.com for the news Item. History will remember you for your contribution in providing a platform to save ourselves and be custodians of our LIFE, thus rejecting the ugly colonial history of the past. and the PRESENT!!!!!!
