  • Ethiopia’s gov’t spokesman decried the election of Trump to lead the U.S

     

    Ethiopia’s newly sworn in government spokesman, Negeri Lencho, said the election of Donald Trump is not good both for his country and for the African continent as a whole and has described him as ‘an extremely neo- liberalist.’ According to him, Trump is ‘always inward looking’ with less care for the rest of the world.

     

    “I don’t think the election of Trump will benefit Africa,” Negeri said adding that he was wishing Secretary Hillary Clinton could win the 2016 US election. “First, he is only interested in trade deals that only benefit the United States. Second, his immigration policy could affect thousands of Ethiopians who live in the United States. And finally, his political tactics are dangerous.”

     

    According to Negeri, Tump may change some of his hard- line policies once he occupies the White House in January. He has described the current U.S- Ethiopian relations as ‘very good’ and ‘longstanding.’

  • UN wants access to Ethiopia protest areas

    The UN's human rights high commissioner (OHCHR) has repeated a demand that the Ethiopian government allow his office access to the protest-hit areas of the country. This comes after a week of protests sparked by the deaths at a religious festival in a town in Oromia on Sunday.

    In a statement, the OHCHR says that "independent observers" should be allowed to go to "the Oromia and Amhara regions to speak to all sides and assess the facts". It adds that "the protests have apparently been fuelled in part by a lack of trust in the authorities’ account of events", but it calls on all sides to remain calm.

    The OHCHR says it is also concerned about the arrest of two bloggers, Seyoum Teshoume and Natnael Feleke, earlier this week.

    "We urge the government to release those detained for exercising their rights to free expression and opinion. Silencing criticism will only deepen tensions," it says.
