Ten ESAT journalists based in the Washington DC studio have recently issued a statement regarding the dispute with the management. They assert that they did not work for a political party and that ESAT need to be transferred to the public.

The Board of ESAT on the other hand has laid off five journalists from the DC office on grounds of budgetary deficit.

On there other hand, there is a claim that the Board’s decision is informed by political motivation. Some even go to the extent that prime minister Abiy Ahmed is involved in engineering the dispute within what was once Ethiopia’s premier source of information at a time when there was crackdown on media in the country. Watch the following report from Andafta media.
