South Africa has moral, legal obligation to compensate Ethiopians for losses in lives, properties & wellbeing

25 Apr

By Keffyalew Gebremedhin – The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)

We read from news reports that South African leaders have been ashamed of the latest ‘xenophobic’ actions in that country.
