Leaked Report Says World Bank Violated Own Rules in Ethiopia

A development project funded by the UK government and run by the World Bank could be facilitating a violent resettlement program in Ethiopia that has been dogged by allegations of forced displacement, physical assaults and rape, a leaked report suggests.

Britain’s Department for International Development (DfID) is the primary sponsor of the World Bank’s foreign aid initiative, supposedly set up to improve basic health, education and public services in Ethiopia. It has attracted over £388 million in UK taxpayer’s money to date. Read more…

ARDUF Warns to Attack Addis-Djibouti Corridor

The Indian Ocean Newsletter, The Ethiopian government authorities are taking the mainly Afar ARDUF armed rebel movement’s opposition to the creation last month of three special kebele (small administrative entities) in the Afar Regional State very seriously.

ARDUF asked the Ethiopian federal authorities to dismantle all illegally constructed settlements in the Afar Region, immediately and unconditionally, or risk the peace and security of the Addis Ababa-Djibouti corridor.

ARDUF asked the Ethiopian federal authorities to dismantle all illegally constructed settlements in the Afar Region, immediately and unconditionally, or risk the peace and security of the Addis Ababa-Djibouti corridor.

In response to threats issued by ARDUF’s leader in Asmara, Mussa Ibrahim, to attack the transport routes, the Ethiopian federal authorities asked the head of the security in the Afar Regional State, Seyum Awal, to deploy special police forces at the strategic points where the rebels could operate.

The latter see the creation of the three special kebeles as going back on the 21 September agreement between the presidents of the two Ethiopian regional states, Ismail Ali Siro (Afar) and Abdi Mahmud Omar (Somali).

Indeed, this agreement obliged the Somali Regional State to hand back the administration of these same localities to the Afar Regional State.

An upswing in violence in this region which is crossed by routes communicating with Djibouti would impact the whole Ethiopian economy.

‘Ethiopia’s media crackdown is bad news for Africa’

Without a free press in Addis Ababa, Africans are being locked out of the important decisions being made in their de facto capital, writes Simon Allison

 “Ethiopia’s media should be playing a crucial role in the May elections, but instead many journalists fear that their next article could get them thrown in jail.”

“Ethiopia’s media should be playing a crucial role in the May elections, but instead many journalists fear that their next article could get them thrown in jail.”

January 23, 2015 (The Guardian) — It’s not easy being a journalist in Ethiopia. In fact, it’s nearly impossible, according to a new 76-page Human Rights Watch report that documents the scale of the state’s censorship apparatus. As a journalist, it makes for highly disturbing reading.

“Ethiopia’s government has systematically assaulted the country’s independent voices, treating the media as a threat rather than a valued source of information and analysis,” says Leslie Lefkow, the organisation’s deputy Africa director.

“Ethiopia’s media should be playing a crucial role in the May elections, but instead many journalists fear that their next article could get them thrown in jail.”

The authors of the report spoke to 70 Ethiopian journalists, many in exile, who painted a dismal picture of the state of Ethiopian media. The government exerts control in many different ways – some subtle, some quite the opposite. Read more…

January 22, 2015, SANAA (Reuters) – Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi resigned on Thursday, throwing the volatile Arab country deeper into chaos days after Houthi rebels battled their way into his presidential palace.

Hadi, a key counter-terrorism ally of the United States, stood down abruptly shortly after Prime Minister Khaled Baha had offered his government’s resignation, saying it did not want to be dragged into “an unconstructive political maze”.
This was an apparent reference to a stand-off between Hadi and the Shi’ite Muslim Houthi movement which has been holding the president a virtual prisoner in his own official residence. Read more…

Ethiopia: Media Being Decimated

Legal, Policy Reforms Crucial Prior to May Elections

ethiopia0115_reportcoverJanuary 22, 2015, Nairobi (Human Rights Watch) – The Ethiopian government’s systematic repression of independent media has created a bleak landscape for free expression ahead of the May 2015 general elections, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. In the past year, six privately owned publications closed after government harassment; at least 22 journalists, bloggers, and publishers were criminally charged, and more than 30 journalists fled the country in fear of being arrested under repressive laws.

The 76-page report, “‘Journalism is Not a Crime’: Violations of Media Freedom in Ethiopia,” details how the Ethiopian government has curtailed independent reporting since 2010. Human Rights Watch interviewed more than 70 current and exiled journalists between May 2013 and December 2014, and found patterns of government abuses against journalists that resulted in 19 being imprisoned for exercising their right to free expression, and that have forced at least 60 others into exile since 2010.
