Tigist Mengistu Interview with Addisu Abebe

Tigist Mengistu remarked about Abiy Ahmed’s administration, about the massacre in some parts of Ethiopia and the pressure from the international Community

December 27, 2020

In an interview with former Voice of America Amharic service journalist Addisu Abebe who is now working for Menelik Television, Tigist Mengistu (Colonel Mengistu Hailemariam’s daughter) talks about herself, her father and the situation in Ethiopia.

She was noticeably in tears when she talked about that her father, a revolutionary leader who led Ethiopia for about 17 years, is not able to return back to his country. She said that one of the things she wants to see in her life is to see her father, who is now in his late seventies, return to Ethiopia before dies.

She also remarked about the current situation in Ethiopia and the unfair pressure that the international community is putting on Ethiopia due to the war on Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
