The park tells the story of Ethiopia for the past 132 years. through the different regimes that have followed one another since Emperor Minilik II.

    Who gives a damn about those ’Abeshas (so-called ethiopians’ bullsh*ts? Do the creeps think that South Sudan would be ’intrigued’ by those theatrics or shows? The level of ’HATRED and RACISMS’ Towards our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan run deep through our bloods and souls. Even you Abeshas (so-called ethiopians) have been behaving like you are some kind of superior than South Sudanese>>>>
