On the occasion of anniversary of one year in office, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed spoke to local journalists on a number of issues.
One of the questions he faced was Addis Ababa’s ownership which became a question after Abiy Ahmed’s own ethnic party, Oromo Democratic Party (ODP) claimed Oromo ownership of Ethiopia’s capital.
In today’s press conference, he said it is shameful to question who does Addis Ababa belong to? He said Addis Ababa belongs to all of Ethiopians just like the rest of the cities in Ethiopia. Yet, Abiy knows that many regional cities are constitutionally snatched from Ethiopians and given to a specific ethnic group. Watch his speech in Amharic below.
