“Kabylia must be united with all of Algeria”

It’s an impression of returning after an absence that has a somewhat bizarre justification. But the main thing is to make the return “, He said at the microphone by Berber Television.
Lounis Ait Menguellet was moved to see his audience, women and men, young and old, always there. ” When you give it your all, it’s never in vain and God knows that I gave it my all for 50 years. To see such a result, it can only warm the heart “, he congratulates.
In his statement to Berber Television, the poet did not fail to raise the issue of Kabylie and national unity, expressing a clear opinion. ” Kabylia must be united with all of Algeria. Those who died for this country did not die only for Kabylie, they died for their country which is Algeria “recalls Lounis Aït Menguellet.
