In early March 2020, the Ethiopian government announced the appointment of new ambassadors without disclosing the lists of countries to which they are assigned.

Seemingly, the “appointment” came in the wake of a modest shake-up in Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s cabinet. Among the noticeable ones were Berhanu Tsegaye, who was serving as Attorney general, and Gina Bacha, who was serving as president of Commercial Bank of Ethiopia since July 2018. Hirut Zemene, state minister in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was also included in the lists of “appointment.”

Today, the ministry has announced the countries to which the new ambassadors are going. The update from the department is dated March 20, 2020, but was shared on March 26 instead.

The list is as follows :

  1. H.E. Ambassador Berhanu Tsegaye, Amb. to Australia, Canberra
