MAPUTO, MOZAMBIQUE (GNA) – The Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the 10th All Africa Games has announced that 15 Ethiopian athletes are missing from the Games Village, 11 days into the competition in Maputo, Mozambique.

Penalva Cesar, Deputy Director of the LOC and a Spokesperson in an address at a press conference on Wednesday in Maputo, said they have received a confirmation from the Chef Mission of the Ethiopian delegation about the missing Ethiopians.

According to Cesar, the LOC has reported the incident to security officials who are conducting investigations in a bid to fish them out.

“We have alerted the Immigration officials and Police on our bothers and they are doing their best to fish them out.

“I know they will be arrested because we are bent on having a trouble free event and all the law enforcement agencies are on the alert to fish out anybody who engages in illegalities,” Cesar noted.

He said any athlete who attempts to foment trouble or stay in Mozambique illegally will be dealt with according to the laws of the country.

Cezar, however, expressed satisfaction with the general organization of the event.

“Though there were minor problems in some areas, I believe we have organized a very successful All Africa Games.

“We look forward to a memorable closing ceremony on Sunday since we have put in place the necessary preparations for the closing ceremony.” He stated.

The incident of missing athletes has over the years been a characteristic of multi-sports events and the 10th All Africa Games seem not to be an exception as some athletes use such occasions to seek asylum or for greener pastures.

    One good thing we learned from Eritreans is to join any sport and go to the country and leave during match to find better life.

  2. #2,
    You must be born during Woyane era, Ethiopian athlets and soccer players being doing this since the Derg era.

    Good for them, I don’t blame them at all. I would have done the same thing in a heartbeat. However, I am afraid, that melta monkey-face might hunt them down and torture them for humiliating him. I wish them all the best.

    they have the right to go anywhere it was a mistake to run from other country because we have a democracy at least to move where ever we want kikiki and such peoples are unwanted for building our strong Ethiopia

    Because of inflation, it is easier to get paid ticket to leave the country otherwise you are right it is easy for addis and no one would stop them.

    They can’t afford to pay for ticket so they let that ugly melata to pay for them. Smart guys indeed.

    Oh why from Mozambique? They could have honorably left in USA or Europe if they wish or fly from Ethiopia directly.
    Most probably, these athletes are eritreans and Mozambiques are reporting them as Ethiopians by mistake.

    አሁንም ወያኔ ጡሩ ነው የሚል ሰው በነፍስ አለ? ድንጋይን ቢፈልጡት ተመልሶ ድነጋይ መሆኑ ነው።

    አይ ወያኔ ታጥቦ ጭቃ ይሁን። እሲኪባረር ላይጸዳ ነው ማለት ነው።

    I am waiting to see if Walta website will post this news. They were the first site to report when Eritrean athlets disappeared couple months ago. Let’s see if they can experience fair jounalism.

    TPLF is hated so much people are abandoning it, just yesterday Somali Land said they are deporting 80,000 and in March ICRC said there were 37,000 Ethiopians and Somalis that crossed into Yemen in the middle of the Yemeni revolution. Imagine that, people are leaving TPLF ruled Ethiopia for a better deal.

  11. Girma Getahun on

    Supid Woyanes still think Ethiopia is the land of milk and honey. The Athletes, irrespective of their reasons, did one thing good. They will add voice to the voiceless in Woyane controlled Ethiopia. It is better to live in a free coutry than being a prisoner in your own homeland. May God get rid of Woyanes and their hodam foot soldiers?

  12. Ahmed Nur Ali on
