The Economist likens Ethiopia’s false choice of development over democracy as evidence of its choice to become Africa’s house of cards

26 Apr

“But with political freedom now a thing of the past, the government’s legitimacy rests on it delivering the prosperity it has long promised to all its citizens.”

Development now and democracy later is a non-starter for the throngs of these angry Ethiopian youth that with every passing day has less or nothing to lose! (Credit: AFP/Getty Images via The Economist)
