The Special Session of the African

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!
