Lowest favorability

It is common knowledge Hailemariam Desalegn has been least appreciated in office as a national leader, especially his tenure as Ethiopia’s prime minister since September 16, 2012.

Mass protests force Ethiopia to free opposition leader Bekele Gerba and seven other political figures suddenly cleared of charges and let out of jail after being arrested in 2015

Ethiopia has released a senior opposition leader from prison and dropped all charges against him after demonstrators blocked roads and staged protest rallies in several towns.

Bekele Gerba, secretary general of the Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC), was arrested in December 2015 after mass protests broke out in the Oromiya region over accusations that farmers were being forced to sell land with scant compensation.

“[S]ave the country from any unforeseen fate that awaits it.”

Former Chief of Staff of the Ethiopian Armed Forces, Tsadkan Gebretensae (Let. Gen.), called for the establishment of an independent commission, to prepare a level political playing field for the upcoming elections, if Ethiopia is to shrug off its current challenges and become a stable country.

In an exclusive interview with The Reporter, Tsadkan indicated that, the current situation in the country is beyond the control and management capabilities of the current system and only an independent commission, which is free from the dominance of the ruling Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) can save the country from any unforeseen fate that awaits it.
