The University of Gondar on Wednesday announced that it has opened a Public Diplomacy centre. 

The centre aims to support Ethiopia’s diplomatic activities in the form of mobilising the academic community, as reported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia. 

Dina Mufti, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia, attended the opening ceremony event.

He  “called on higher education institutions to support diplomatic efforts to safeguard the sovereignty of Ethiopia,” as reported by MFAE. 

He has remarked on expectations from institutions of higher learning. He is cited as saying “Ethiopian higher education institutions are expected to produce high-quality research output that fit the challenges that the country is facing these days.” 

Dr. Asrat Atsedeweyen, President of the University, on his part emphasised a commitment to supporting the Public Diplomacy Center in its effort to contribute academic-based output along the line of defending the interest of Ethiopia.

  1. Subject: The University of Gondar launches Public Diplomacy Centre, by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia, (MFAE).

    Humble Question
    One hopes that the MFAE will dwell on the following in their meetings;

    First: Define clearly the real problem of the Country.

    Second: Come out clearly and daringly with the solution to the real problem

    Third: Execute the defined solution without skirting around

    The defined work is NOT simple — and has never been so.
    But skirting around with numerous meetings will not help AFRICA we have already proved it.
    We also know that it will be a delight to the old colonial powers that Africa knows very well and deeply to its bone.
    Do we need more breaking of bones?!?!?!?
