Ethiopian Premier: Abiy Ahmed awarded Nobel Peace Prize

2019-10-11T09:14:27.757Z

The committee in Oslo has decided: Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is honored with the Nobel Peace Prize for reconciliation with the long-time archenemy Eritrea.




He made peace with long-standing arch rival Eritrea and acted as mediator in numerous conflicts in East Africa: Abiy Ahmed, since 2018 head of government in Ethiopia, receives the Nobel Peace Prize.

In his homeland, Abiyi is regarded as a bearer of hope. Since taking office one and a half years ago, the head of government released thousands of dissidents and dismissed corrupt officials. He represents a new beginning after a long period of state terror.

In neighboring Sudan, he became involved as an intermediary between the ruling military council and democracy activists after the overthrow of the local ruler Omar al-Bashir.
