Massawa, 11 February 2011 – A Tanzanian intellectual said that the commemoration of the historic Operation Fenkil symbolizes the steadfastness and work capability of the Eritrean people both during the pre- and post-independence period.
Mr. Patiense Magoha, lecturer at the College of Science and Marine Technology in Massawa, said that the fact that the Eritrean people achieved independence through heavy sacrifice in the course of the armed struggle and managed to nurture noble values of steadfastness, commitment, love and unity in the process makes them unique in the African continent.
He explained that his friend, Mr. Abdurahman Babu who was also a friend of the Eritrean Revolution, has made strong impact on him about the Eritrean people and their struggle in the 1980s. Mr. Magoha further stated that the development registered in the infrastructure and social services in Massawa City fully attests to the theme of this year’s Operation Fenkil anniversary.
Noting that the prevailing peace, mutual respect and harmony in Eritrea prompt him to live in Massawa for many years, he indicated that he eagerly anticipates Operation Fenkil anniversary more than any other Eritrean national holidays, and that he is participating in this year’s commemoration for the 14th time.
The Tanzanian intellectual congratulated the Eritrean people on the occasion of the 21st anniversary of Operation Fenkil and expressed deep impression with the strenuous endeavors exerted and the impressive achievements registered towards promoting social justice over the past 20 years.
