Hundreds gathered in Ethiopia’s northern town of Adwa to commemorate the defeat of the Italian troupes by Ethiopian forces in 1986 and the establishment of a pan-African university in Africa at the historic town in a ceremony attended by various African distinguished leaders including Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni.
African leaders and several delegates, who had just attended the 6th Tana High Level Forum on Security in Africa, flew to Adwa to cement African unity with the establishment of the Pan African University in Africa.
President Museveni and his host Ethiopian Prime Minister, Hailemariam Desalegn laid the foundation stone for the construction of the university.
Museveni blamed African chiefs for not fighting and consolidating the sovereignty of the African continent and thanked the people of Ethiopia for putting up a spirited resistance to colonialism, which couldn't be done by many African chiefs.
"I am honoured along with my colleagues to be in Ethiopia. I am honored to be invited here at Adwa. I would have removed my shoes because this is a holy place, it is the holy land of Africa. It removed the shame from Africa. The African chiefs should be ashamed of their ancestors who looked on as Africa Africa was being invaded and colonised by the foreigners," he said. - See more at: http://www.newvision.co.ug/new_vision/news/1451887/ethiopia-adwa-re...
