Kinijit European Delegation has arrived in Germany from Switzerland. Headed by Ato Mistre Haile Selassie and escorted by Europe Council Tour Bus.
They drove over 450 Km through the heart of Europe to Germany. After they arrived near the outskits of Frankfurt, large numbers of militant and joyful Ethiopians have made car chains to escort them from about 50 KM on German Highway to the center of Frankfurt. All cars have waived Ethiopian flags with Kinijit stickers on their cars as they moved to the podium where many hundreds of Ethiopians have been waiting to salute the long awaited leaders. Many people have emphasized that this has been a very spectacular and Heroes welcome that no other Ethiopian leader received in the last 30 years. Some people said, it looked like a Wedding. Many German citizens gathered wondering what was going on and German news broadcast has transmitted the speech and music ceremony from Frankfurt. Dr. Yacob and and Ato Muluneh Iyuel have thanks for the very warm welcome and reaffirmed that Eng. Hailu is the leader of Kinijit and there is no any major rift within the CUDP. Ato Samuel Gugsa (Organizing committee chairman) and Dr, Assefa Nesbu ( KSGG Chairman) have made speeches including clear statements about the solidarty of Ethiopains in Germany with Kinijit movement. After the ceremony in the city, invited guests and kinijit supporters headed to a dinner party outside Frankfurt which included a documentary Movie of the laat 2 years struggle as organized by KSGG (Kinijt support Group Germany). The leaders were able to witness what Ethiopians have done during the last 2 years to get Ethiopian people’s voices be heard and to get them released. Videos from Demonstrations in Strassbourg, Berlin, Brussels and Frankfurt were the most moving among others.
