The government of Abiy Ahmed quietly removed Dr. Mulu Nega as head of the Tigray Provisional Administration that was established after the Ethiopian Defense Force took control of Mekelle City giving Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) a crushing defeat in a matter of two weeks. 

On Wednesday, the Ethiopian State Media said Dr, Abraham Belay is appointed as the new Head of Tigray Region Temporary administration. 

Dr. Abraham is president of the region’s branch of Prosperity Party, and has served in the Abiy Ahmed Cabinet as Innovation and Technology Minister – among others roles. 

The government did not say why Dr, Mulu Nega was removed from his position.

  1. My information is that Dr Mulu wanted to go back to his former career and was gracefully granted. Let’s wish the new leader nothing but success. My understanding is that Dr. Abraham bin Belay is a longtime critic of the goons of TPLF. So he knows their number.
