Everything is Moved But Memory:. Let us Retain in our Memory on the Great African Adwa Victory

Ethiopia has need of no one. She stretches out her hands to God” — Emperor Menelik, February, 1897

“There was never a time when united that Ethiopians lost to an enemy; it is non-existent in history”–Emperor Menilek II, 1909

“Those who are strong, support us with your strength. Those who are weak, support us with your prayers” — Emperor Menelik

“I am a woman. I do not like war. But I would rather die than accepting your deal”– Etige Taitu Bitul, Wife of Menelik II

“Although it had been conquered dozens of times, Ethiopia was the birthplace of African nationalism.” —Nelson Mandela

“So lofty was the status of Ethiopia in the African diaspora that it sometimes was synonymous with Africa itself”—Raymond Jonas

Ethiopia was one of the few nation-states under African control. Many people of African ancestry embraced it as evidence of the black capacity for self-rule” –Asante

“Adwa Victory made Africa a victor, not a victim” —Former President Dr. Thabo Mbeki

“Better to continue learning our history to know ourselves to make a positive difference to the Africana world’s bright future” — Mammo Muchie

“Ethiopia has a unique distinction in the universe for empowering those that were disempowered, for humanising those that were dehumanised, spiritualising those that were denied their right to worship God and inspiring and strengthening those oppressed to resist oppression” —Mammo Muchie

If in Brazil the newspaper ‘Oh Menelik’ after the Great Adwa Victory was created, why not we fail to erect a statue in Southern Africa where Ethiopianism has inspired the liberation imagination of all Africans with the second Ethiopia Manifesto declared after Adwa Victory in 1896 in Southern Africa.   Molefi K Asante and Mammo Muchie

If the American president John F Kennedy, the French president Jacques Chirac and Mummar Gaddafi all recognise Aste Menelik as the greatest African leader for ably  leading and winning the Adwa  victory to make Africa free, why are some in current Ethiopia   use ethnic virus  and fail to recognise this great African leader?  Mammo Muchie
