@flyethiopian ought to hearken to the considerations/ calls for of the folks.
Najah Mohamed Garad- an aspiring pilot was shortlisted and known as to be interviewed on the #Ethiopian Aviation Academy in Addis. In his interview they requested him: Do you could have household in Mogadishu? & Do you ever contact Mogadishu?
Najah responded that he has no household in #Mogadishu nor does he contact anybody there. The three male interviewees continued to interrogate Najah in a transparent try to determine some type of hyperlink between his Somali id and Mogadishu- as if it is a crime!
Following this unacceptable line of questioning, they congratulated Najah on his acceptance onto this system primarily based on his glorious file & was informed to attend downstairs. An hour later, the listing of profitable candidates was revealed, & to Najah’s surprise- his identify was NOT listed!
