Clarkston and Harar, Ethiopia become sister cities




First Photo:
Salah Wazir, (left) a native of Harar Ethiopia and a U.S. citizen for 15 years, arranged a meeting between the Mayor of Clarkston, Lee Swaney and the Mayor of Harar, Ethiopia. Guests included Dennis Harkins (far right), provost of Georgia Perimeter College in Clarkston. There are 251 Ethiopian students attending GPC at the Clarkston campus.




Second Photo:
The Mayor of Clarkston Georgia, Lee Swaney (right) and the Mayor of Harar, Ethiopia, Zeydan Bekri share a laugh over a meal last week during a special cultural exchange at the Clarkston United Methodist Church. Although the cities are nearly 8,000 miles apart, representatives from both cities gathered for the purpose of becoming sister cities.

Wazir, a businessman who lives in Clarkston, helped make the connection and hopes the relationship will open the door for better understanding and raise awareness of some of Harar?s needs such as clean water, books and medical help. Harar, once a superpower in ancient Egypt is one of the oldest cities in the world and is a center of culture and education. There are about 1,000 people from Harar in the Atlanta area.
