Pan-African Youth Summit celebrates Africa Day


A Pan African Youth Summit commenced today (May 25) in Addis Ababa, celebrating Africa Day.

The summit will be held for three days under the theme ‘Building on Pan-African ties and Promoting indigenous knowledge in Africa”.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, H.E. Demeke Mekonnen, delivered a keynote speech recalling the liberation struggles in Africa and calling on the youth to join hands in fighting contemporary challenges.

Mr. Demeke said the African youth should change challenges into opportunities by equipping themselves with distilled information and knowledge. 

Maintaining African values and history, the massive youth population of the continent is considered a blessing for the continental aspirations, he underlined.

He also advised the youth to remain optimistic and learn from others to contribute to their society, country, continent, and the world.

The Minister of Women and Social Affairs of Ethiopia, H.E. Ergogie Tesfaye (Ph.D.), also delivered a speech noting the role of the victory of Adwa in inspiring Pan-African movements and anti-colonialism struggles.

Containing vast natural resources with a high number of young people, Africa has immense potential for development, she noted.

Although poverty still challenges Africa, the youth should deal with it with a problem-solving mentality and undivided attention to education, Dr. Eregogie said.

She said the government of Ethiopia set up a homegrown economic reform plan and identified priority sectors to engage the youth in productive activities.

She expressed hope that the output of the summit would contribute to the policymakers and all other stakeholders.

In its commitment to improve the quality of education in Ethiopia, the government is keen on working closely with educational organizations that operate internationally, including EOC, he added.

Sheikh Manssour Bin Mussallam, on his part, said OEC works closely with relevant bodies to improve quality and ensure inclusivity of education, and make knowledge the driving force for social development.

He further called on the Ethiopian government to scale up its role in the organization by allowing moves to set up the seat of the Headquarters in Addis Ababa.

L’Empire éthiopien est la seule puissance africaine à avoir contenu durablement une expansion européenne à la fin du xixe siècle. Il agrandit fortement son territoire lors des campagnes de Menelik II dans le dernier quart de celui-ci.

Elle parvient à repousser le royaume d’Égypte lors de la guerre égypto-éthiopienne de 1875-1876, les madhistes soudanais lors de la guerre éthio-mahdiste de 1885 de 1889 malgré une lourde défaite, et, plus emblématique, parvient à remporter la victoire contre le Royaume d’Italie lors de la Première guerre italo-éthiopienne de 1885-1896 dont la plus importante bataille est celle d’Adoua.

Elle ne peut cependant empêcher l’Italie de conserver les côtes et plateaux de l’Érythrée lors des négociations qui s’ensuivent.

Elle est finalement envahie par l’Italie fasciste lors de Seconde guerre italo-éthiopienne entre 1935 et 1936. La résistance éthiopienne aide fortement à la libération du pays par les forces britanniques et françaises libres lors de la Campagne d’Afrique de l’Est en 1941.

Après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, l’Empire éthiopien reconstitue son armée avec l’aide des États-Unis. Celle-ci dispose en 1951 de la division des gardes du corps impériaux, trois divisions d’armée, une petite armée de l’air en cours de constitution et une armée provinciale, territoriale, de réserve. Cette année-là, un contingent de la taille d’un régiment part combattre durant la guerre de Corée au sein du Commandement des Nations unies en Corée.
