“First of all I would like to thank the Almighty Lord for which our flag is replaced. Our patriots came back with a victory staying in the bush for 5 years. Secondly, any human being may have a great pleasure when he or she join with his/her birth place. With grace of God I was eager to see my native place Wollo. I am very happy as I am with you after 31 years.” Next I am very grateful for the people who received me with great pleasure.” All of you know that this naturally gifted country which is green and different from any African countries has never been under colony and has been ruled only by its own kings.” My native ladies and gentlemen of Wollo our country has been free since 3000 years back. However through the help of England and fierce struggle of its children, we freed our country, the flag….Let God make it possibl,e long life to our flag.
