3 Aug

By Keffyalew Gebremedhin – The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)

The Helsinki Sanomat closely follows events around the world, including Ethiopia – one of Finland’s development partner countries for aid and international trade purposes.

Recall that a week before the 24 May 2015 election, the paper in its 17th May issue penned the lead idea that indeed a week later proved the Ethiopian election was simply “a substantial waste of money for false democracy.”
