Knowledge and Skill Transfer Program at Ethiopian Universities

An invitation from The Expatriates Affairs Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to all Ethiopian University Professionals in the Diaspora
(Ethiopian Consulate LA)

Beterseltan of VOA Tigrigna discusses with Solomon GebreEgzibaher and Mehari Abraha on what PM Meles of Ethiopia said in his recent interview with


Comment:-  When we first heard the interview we were taken back by a big surprise how the PM was addressed! We grew up where adults, not to mention authorities, were respected and addressed as “Nesom, Eswo” similar to “Sir” and “your honor!”. Then someone alerted us that the culture in Eritrea is somewhat different when it comes to affection and respect! In fact if someone respects and loves you in Eritrea, he/she will call you “ata, ante” basically “you!”.

We still think the culture and norm of the host country should have prevailed regardless in this case but we understand the PM was talking to Eritreans!

Thanks Betere for making it more presentable though!
