Ethiopia is living with a critical political situation the outcome of which is hard to predict. Destiny Ethiopia, an entity described as a local non-government organization founded by nine Ethiopians, initiated a discussion forum under the topic “Where would Ethiopia be in 20 years.”
It was organized this week at the Skylight Hotel in Addis Ababa. It attracted key political figures, artists and business people, among others.
As the details emerge now, Destiny Ethiopia was working on the event discreetly for more than six months. Nigussu Akililu, one of the founders of Destiny Ethiopia and coordinator of the event, says they first approached key actors who took part in the event and had a closed meeting with them.
Ethiopia’s Ministry of Peace was also present in the event.
Abiy Guday show of Arts Word TV featured three participants, in addition to the coordinator of the event, participants of the discussion at the skylight hotel.
Kejela Merdasa, public relations head of Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), Yeshiwas Assefa (Chairman of Ethiopian Citizens for Social Justice) and Dr, Desalegne Chanie (from National Movement of Amhara) are featured.
