If you want to stay abreast of events in Ethiopia, watch YouTube for the latest news. You can find stories about Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, Meaza Mohammed, Solomon Shumye, and more. You can also watch interviews with prominent political figures including Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. You can also learn about the latest events of the country’s political system and current affairs. Below are some of the latest stories about the country’s political scene.
Earlier this week, police in Ethiopia arrested Roha TV editor Meaza Mohammed. The arrest took place after the Ethiopian government ordered schools to be closed last week so students could help with harvesting crops. This is the third time a known Ethiopian journalist has been arrested in less than a week. The arrest of Roha TV editor Meaza Mohammed is part of the government’s campaign to silence critics of the government.
The media outlet did not specify the nature of the trip Amir made to Sudan, but stated that the journalists were interviewed by the authorities after the group said that the government would help the OLA get the international press. Moreover, the police said that they would produce the journalists if they tried to promote OLA. The AP spokesperson added that the family of the editor is allowed to visit him two to three times a week.
The Ethiopian media authority listed Terara among the recently licensed online media outlets, but it did not specify when the company applied for a license to broadcast. It was not until September that Moonira had successfully applied for a license to air Ubuntu TV, which would have automatically earned legal recognition. However, the media authority cited Article 27 (2) of the Ethiopian media proclamation to justify its decision. Although a federal police spokesperson declined to specify which laws journalists allegedly violated, the ministry of justice did not comment on the case.
In a separate incident, police raided the homes of Teklehaimanot Girmai and Mekonnen Yibrah. Both journalists had worked for the Ethiopian Broadcasting Corporation and are ethnic Tigrayans. Their arrests are likely the result of their work for EBC. A friend of Meaza’s told CPJ that they were arrested because they were Tigrayans and were doing their job for EBC.
Ethiopia’s government has arrested a popular Ethiopian journalist who has criticized the government for years. Yayesew, who is based in Tigray province, publishes a weekly political show and contributes to privately owned Feteh magazine. He also runs the Ethio Forum YouTube channel and posts original reporting on Facebook. On March 28, Yayesew was taken to court and held for six days without charge. Police have yet to explain their reasoning.
The news channel has two channels: Nisir International Broadcasting Corporation and Ashara. Last week, the Nisir International Broadcasting Corporation raided their studios in Bahir Dar. They also seized magazines, disk drives, and a camera. On Thursday, Yaysewe Shimelis was arrested in Addis Ababa and brought before the court. The charges against him are related to inciting violence.
The arrest comes after a wave of media arrests across Ethiopia. In the past week, Ethiopian authorities arrested at least 4,000 people. The latest victim is Temesgen Desalegn, editor in chief of the Amharic language magazine Fitih. On Thursday, plainclothes security forces picked him up from his office. He was also searched at his home. His computer, camera, and other items were confiscated.
Meanwhile, the CPJ is investigating the arrest of two other journalists in Ethiopia. Sabontu Ahmed of Finfinnee Integrated Broadcasting and Bekalu Alamrew of Ethio Forum were arrested, but CPJ has not yet been able to contact them. The organization said it received information on Bekalu’s arrest from someone familiar with the case. If the government is indeed trying to silence Ethiopian journalists, this may be a symptom of a larger problem.
If you’ve been following Ethiopian news today on YouTube, you’ve probably noticed a familiar face: YouTube journalist Solomon Shumye. He is a critical voice, and host of a popular talk show. Meskerem Abera, a vocal critic of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government, was kidnapped at the Bole International airport earlier this week. Both men were detained and held at an undisclosed underground jail for two days.
In the last week, a wave of media arrests has struck Ethiopia. Authorities say over 4,000 people have been arrested, but rights groups claim journalists are particularly targeted. One such case is that of Temesgen Desalegn, editor of Amharic language magazine Fitih. He was arrested and escorted by plainclothed security forces to a secret location. His home was searched, and his camera was confiscated.
The arrest of political journalist Medihane Ekubamichaele, who leads the coverage for the Addis Standard on conflict in Tigray, has sparked a fierce debate in the country. According to police, Medihane has been linked to the TPLF and allegedly instigated a revolt. He was released from jail on November 9 but arrested again for more than two weeks. The arrest came after his wife and lawyer were denied permission to see him in detention. The arrest of the journalist prompted a call from the international community to the Ethiopian government to provide an official explanation.
The arrest of the journalist Medihane Ekubamichaele is the latest in a long line of arbitrary arrests of journalists in Ethiopia. The country’s human rights commission has arrested four journalists in the last few weeks, including journalists from the Addis Standard and the Oromia Media Network. The news agency was previously banned, and the journalist’s founder has been jailed for months. The journalists are reportedly being held without the right to see their lawyer.
Another Ethiopian journalist, Sisay Fida, was killed in Mekelle in January. He worked for the Tigray state TV. The regional government of Tigray has appointed a new chief executive, while the Oromiya regional government did not respond to requests for comment. Several months after the conflict, Tigray was under strict restrictions and the situation started to loosen in March.
CPJ has documented several incidents of detention of journalists in Ethiopia since early in the year. In one instance, a journalist named Dessu Dulla was arrested while reporting on the arrest of an Oromo political activist. This journalist was not formally charged with a crime, but was subsequently released on bail. The Oromiya Police Commissioner did not respond to a request for comment.
You can find the latest breaking news about Ethiopia on the internet, with the help of YouTube. The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission expressed concern over recent arrests, saying many people were wrongfully detained, not brought to court and not visited by their families. TV host Solomon Shumye, who hosts a popular show on YouTube, was recently detained after being accused of inciting violence. He is currently in custody in Addis Ababa.
This latest incident comes amid an ongoing wave of arrests in Ethiopia. Authorities say more than 4,000 people have been detained in an anti-crime operation. Media rights groups claim that some of these individuals are journalists. For example, Amharic-language magazine Fitih editor-in-chief Temesgen Desalegn was arrested in his office. Security forces, wearing plainclothes, seized hard drives and a camera.
Two YouTube channels in Ethiopia have reported that they have been raided. A police team raided their offices in northern Amhara region and seized magazines, disk drives and a camera. The journalists were then transferred to detention centers without any contact with their family members. They have been awaiting trial since their arrests. They are also being investigated for alleged crimes against their work. It’s unclear what will happen to them – YouTube users are being arrested more than ever before.
The media is also causing problems in the country. One video that was released by the Ethio Nekat Media was not sourced from a reliable source. While the videos were not published in the mainstream media, they were shared by many people. While the government has a duty to protect their rights, it does not have a responsibility to censor its content. However, the internet allows users to spread the word about Ethiopia.
