someday ago i spend time with I idrens and an issue was brought up about fools day. Is it true that it was meant to mock Africans since the first day in the Ethiopian calender is on first April??

Yes Iyah that is correct.
I am making the comparison. The Ethiopian calendar begins on 1 Meskerem.. this day is called is 11 September in the west. This upcoming 1 Meskerem it will be the year 2010 in Ethiopia.
Here are some calendar apps which include both sets of dates as well as the major Ethiopian holidays:
