I would like to express my deepest sympathies and condolences to the family & friends of our countrymen and women who recently lost their lives and property in South Africa. As Africans we are all brothers and sisters and it is my hope that we all live in peace

Teen Tate condemns violence in the form of Xenophobia, femicide, racism and tribalism. We Are All African. We should start acting like it.

Teen Tate’s mission is to highlight the issues prevalent in the World and especially on the African continent. With the rise of Xenophobic attacks and femicides in South Africa, we must ask ourselves whether this is the legacy we want to have in the future.

Coffee: Ethiopia is where coffee was first discovered. In the 9th Century, a goat herder discovered coffee beans. Yes, Ethiopia, where coffee was first discovered is also where you can experience an Ethiopian coffee ceremony!

Cuisine: Yes! The Ethiopian “injera” is an absolute delight! It is a large, spongy, pancake-like bread, on which portions of spicy meat and vegetables are served. Make sure you try this dish when you visit.
