What a speech? Just amazing and an echo of every Eritrean way of thinking.
"Twice the verdict, will cause the judge to get a monkey as a child"
Lol that is funny and the truth. But you got to hear that in his Tigrigna to appreciate it.
" Heros do not live physically for ever, but they live for eternity by the history they leave behind them and Eritrea had them in the past, it has now as I speak, and are still in the wombs of their mothers."
A very true statement.
"It is very rare if not, that leaders who unite people from different religious beliefs, languages etc. exist in this world as ours"
Another reason that Eritrea will soon be a model nation to this screwed up world.
I am proud of this eldery man and Eritrea is blessed to have numerouse of such kind of people, who refused to get free meal (beg) from their own government, but demand that they get a helping hand from thir leaders to provide them the equipments they need to do it by the them selves. And thanks to the ears of their leadership, when some beggar nations we know are buying second or third hand tanks, while starving their own people, ours did import what our people demanded.......Farming machineries, seeds etc.
Man the speech sent chills in my spine. I wish some body can translate every bit of it in Englsih.
As for me it is too much good tigrigna for my ability to translate.
