Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed had an interview with Meaza Birru of Sheger FM 102.1.
In this nearly two hours interview (audio presented in two parts), he talked about challenges in the past year, his vision in the new Ethiopian new year, among other issues relevant to Ethiopia. He also talked about the story of his parents, his childhood in Beshash (his birthplace) and his own family life.
In the first few months of his administration, he was very popular among many Ethiopians. His popularity, however, plummeted due to the way he handled the various crisis that Ethiopia experienced, mostly challenges related to security and the rule of law, in the Ethiopian year that just ended.
At this point in time, it is visible that a growing number of Ethiopians are skeptical of Abiy Ahmed. Seemingly, he carefully picked popular private media in the country to reach out to his detractors in the Ethiopian new year.
Watch part I and part II of his interview from the audio file below.
