Artist Gatesh Mamo’s Unexpected Speech About the New PM
Ethiopia's new PM, Abiye Ahmed, was confirmed by parliament Monday.
The nation's decision coalition named Ahmed the new pioneer following quite a while of vulnerability and challenge.
He succeeds previous Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, who suddenly surrendered February 15.
Hailemariam took control in 2012 and was executive of the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), which has ruled since the fall of the Derg administration in 1992.
Ahmed, 42, is Ethiopia's first Oromo leader. The Oromos, Ethiopia's biggest ethnic gathering, make up around 33% of the country's 100 million populace.
The swearing in of Ahmed is viewed as an endeavor to quiet divisions. The country has been in an official highly sensitive situation since February 16 and has encountered two years of dissents.
