Here the academic slogan reads as, "Knowledge Is Power, Edu Learning Is Superpower!"
Esteemed academicians, Senior Educationists, Edu Learners, Individual household families and the general public as a whole,
I hope all of you’re doing well!
ALPHABETIC AFRICAN TIMELINE along it’s Afro friendly website registered at, https://www.africacomplete.com / www.africacomplete.co.ke / www.africacomplete.et. is an Afro Intro and mind empowerment digital platform that has been involved in education/entertainment (edutain) activities eversince it’s inception in November, 1993, it’s main objective is to empower, promote and educate the youth of the African continent at it’s A to Z (ALGERIA to ZIMBABWE) format to bright the basic education such as remote primary, elementary, and secondary schools, higher educational institutes, individual household families, and the general public that can help them in their lives.
“Since October 1992, Moges Mulugeta, an Ethiopian by nationality has through his own initiative contacted all OAU Member States and has been able to prepare a Geo-political country profiles of African States entitled as, “ALPHABETIC AFRICAN TIMELINE (The Essential & Complete e-Guide to the African countries, people and politics)”. Such Afro friendly country manuals, the first of it’s kind, has been fully supported by the OAU General Secretariatas it provides useful profiles of member states in alphabetical order as also accurately written in reasonable depth, and will definitely go a long way towards publicizing the Member States and our continental organization at home and abroad. The OAU General secretariat, would, therefore, appreciate any assistance that would be extended regarding the promotion of this handy publication to Ethiopian Embassies abroad, NGO’s, Colleges, the University, Libraries, and the general public through the media i.e. etv, radio, etc.” -Ambassador Ahmed Hagag (retired Egyptian diplomat), Secretary-General of the ex-Organization of African Unity (OAU)
As well known, Education is the key to successful future and the key element in helping men and women develop to their full potentials, Edu e-Learning opens doors of opportunity that is only available to those who seek it out and put their hearts and souls into it. Though education and becoming exposed to added knowledge and experiences, people can find for themselves what they are best suited or most interested in doing for the rest of their lives. Success is defined differently by every individual person and education is an important tool in both creating a personal definition of success and eventually making it reality. Making the decision to take advantage of all educational opportunities that are available is not something that is necessarily easy, often times it takes effort to seek out those opportunities that could potentially help to further develop talents and abilities that we may already possess.
“I express my personal admiration to this young and growing Ethiopian’s, endeavour the time and patience he paid to bring his wish into reality” -The Hon. Wolde-Michael Chemu (retired), ex-Federal Minister of Information and Culture (1995 to 2000), Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia /FDRE/.
Education is not limited to school buildings and institutions. While a great deal of learning can come from teachers, professors, text books, and class sessions, these are not the only avenues of education and should not be seen as that way. Anyway, we can educate ourselves or e-Learn more about the world and around our continent is key in establishing a successful career and future. It is not only the knowledge attained that carry you up the career ladder and into the realms of success but also the connections you make with others and how fast you can think on your feet and solve problems and generate new ideas and thinking. Those who can work independently and can be counted on in the toughest and most trying situations are those that will be most sought out by the professional world, whether that profession happens to be IT engineering, e-Teaching, e-Medicine, e-Learning or anything else.
“I have read the draft African Almanac version, I recommend you to read it. It’s an excellent initiative, and think it’s quite in order. Moges ingeniously finds ways to serve the African general public especially in terms of empowering and promoting the entirety of the continent” -Dr. Ibrahim Dagash Ibrahim (retired) ex-Head of Press and Information Dept. of the ex-OAU.
Simply to say, getting by and passing by classes in schools is not enough. In order to get a good education, we have to put a great deal of efforts into it and make the most of it. We have to be willing and able to learn new ideas, try new concepts in terms of e-Learning and e-Teachings, and experiment with what we are unfamiliar. Though, Education through African studies is the key to success because, everything involved in the process of education involves the intake of new knowledge; the application of new techniques, and the connection of new geographic, socio-economic, socio-historic, socio-cultural and socio political information with what we already know or have experienced.
“It’s an excellent job that Moges is trying to do” -Mr. Mohammed “Mo” Amin (the late), victim of the 1996 hijacked EAL jetliner Flight 906 crashed in the Comores), Camerapix/Reuters TV, Nairobi, Kenya.
It’s that in mind the ALPHABETIC AFRICAN TIMELINE (K) strives to see how best we can maximize our efforts in making Edutainment (educate/entertain) the African youth. In doing this, we fully understand that today will not be like tomorrow in terms of our educate/entertain levels and best career selections. We have for the past quarter a century produced an Afro friendly webproject entitled at, https://www.africacomplete.com / africacomplete.co.ke that’s highly affiliated with a four-colours digitally designed and separated, downloadable and printable at the desired size e-Map publication entitled as, “A to Z of AFRICA – General Information of African Nation States” mainly illustrated with individual country locator map, national flag and the coat of Arms, to promote and empower the 55 African independent Nation States as well as the over 14 Dependency islands and islets whose are geographically the integral parts of Africa, but politically voted to stay under their former colonial masters through formal referendum, that’s mainly designed for e-Learning and e-Teaching purpose at remote schools under the auspices of their respective General Education and Higher Education ministries which’s that can compete through Distance e-Learning programs to a fruition of young leaders of highest calibre.
“You have dedicated many years of your life to bring knowledge about Africa to learners everywhere. Your work is commendable, and your dedication to this cause gives me inspiration” – Mr. Øyvind Høynes, CEO of Norwegian Digital Learning Arena (NDLA) /Digitale læremidler for videregående opplæring/
It’s important to know that educate/entertain (Edutainment) e-Platform opens the doors to a completely new world of teaching teqniques and dream careers. Digital Edutainment is the best gift one can give oneself. There are plenty of educational opportunities available for those who seek to further their economic goals in life. A good college education is the other best option for this. Those who had completed their academic and education courses were given a chance to expose themselves once again to new general knowledge based education especially in terms of African studies and experiences. I believe, you are now empowered fully and live up to our definition of success and contribute to the world around us to our fullest potential. The ALPHABETIC AFRICAN TIMELINE (K) calls upon all willing parties and groups at their abilities to give us their full support and let’s realize the success we all achieve.
“The e-Map Africa and the Afro friendly website Africacomplete.com projected by Mr. Mulugeta is a highly visual and detailed venture that gives relevant information to scholars and people who are interested in general information pertaining Africa and the selected African countries. I’d therefore recommend it as a reference material.” – Mr. Ken Karangi, Digital Educationist at Text Book Center Kenya (TBC).

He is widely admired, has been known for writing and editing the chronology of African countries with spectacular events or timeline facts and figures happened in the history of individual African states.

Amharay had interviewed several career African diplomats, and press councilors of the African governments residing in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, the seat of the African Union Commission during a door-to-door approach to gather resource materials to show up the interlinked history of almost all African 55 independent nation states and the fourteen Dependency islands and islets in A to Z (ALGERIA-ZIMBABWE) volume whose most member states share common sense of economic development and social identity. As school boy, Moges was fond of story-telling and later in life he had proved himself to be a competent part time writer of historic, geographic, and public diaries articles. A former classmate, and a close friend has described him as modest and talented, and was extremely capable man to compile such volume.
Though, inspired by a pan-African sense, he has developed himself further through reading, overseas correspondences, healthy discussions and friendly debates on pre-independence and post-colony African history and current affairs those remained as part of his hobbies to date. As a born optimist, he’s oriented to public spirited activities and believes that a man should do something good for the general public during his lifetime.
Amharay honored for his global peace activities from the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), and the Inter-religious and International Federation for World Peace (IIFWP) where based in Seoul, The Republic of Korea (RoK) at a ceremony held in the Congress Hall of Addis Ababa in October, 2006. Mr. Moges Mulugeta was nominated and selected for this great honor on the basis of his firm dedication to peace, civil and democratic rights in his native country, and his outstanding contributions to African studies having significantly making him the right person he is today.
The “Ambassadors for Peace” title of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) & International and Inter-religious Federation for World Peace (IIFWP) based in Seoul, Republic of Korea is a global network of leaders from religion, politics, the mass media, academia, and civil society working co-operatively for the sake of world peace. The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and the International and Inter-religious Federation for World Peace (IIFWP) chose globally
“Ambassadors for Peace” to those individuals whose lives exemplify the ideal of living for the sake of others, and who dedicate themselves to universal moral values, consciousness, strong family life, inter-religious cooperation, international harmony, renewal of the United Nations, a responsible public media, and of course the establishment of a culture of peace. The “Ambassadors for Peace” initiative was launched in January of 2001 in Seoul, Republic of Korea (RoK), and giving rise to a series of educational programs aimed at reconciliation and peace initiatives. Nearly 70,000 Ambassadors for Peace have been appointed worldwide by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and the Inter-religious and International Federation for World Peace (IIFWP).
Mr. Moges has campaigned for the country’s pro-democracy party, the Coalition for Unity and Democracy (CUD), which was achieved a sweeping victory in the capital, Addis Ababa during the May-2005 national and parliamentary elections, but to his dismay, when the results were overturned and protests broke out amid allegations of fraud, the ruling-EPRDF party quickly began cracking down on to the opposition CUD Party and it’s supporters. European Election Observers led by The Hon. MEP Anna Maria Gomes of EU reported extensive human-rights violations in the months that followed with killings of 193 peaceful demonstrators about 763 were injured and tens of thousands more imprisoned at remote detention camps by the police and security forces. Though, Moges escapes arrest and moved to the countryside but his connections to the opposition political groups subjected him to continued threats, harassment, and intense intimidation even long after the election.
Mulugeta studied academic education courses, majored by African studies. But in recent years, he spends much of his time on studying ethnography rewriting African socio-cultural issues i.e. history, language, culture, literature. “Africacomplete.com – The Essential & Complete e-Guide to the African countries, peoples, and politics” presents some of his dedicated works to promote the entire continent, he finds interesting traditional beliefs, records inspiring events, discovering new African heritages, corresponds with various African personalities, traveling around the continent, meeting with diasporans from various African countries.
Ethiopia, despite being the chartered seat of the OAU, and now the official seat of the African Union Commission (AUC), the incumbent anti press regime in Ethiopia had never practiced even the minimum space for all inclusive political dialogue and reconciliation that benefited the citizens of many African nations at least enjoying political welbeing, stability and tranquility which is that’s so natural. So Moges self-exiles in Norway for about a decade, where he engaged with Norwegian language (Norskurs), and Social Science (Norge Samfunnsfag) studies since his arrival in 3rd July, 2007 until he left Norway in 9th June, 2017.
