Is Ethiopia making a case for dictatorships in Africa?

ECADF | (The East Africa Monitor) — Ethiopia’s transformation over the past year and a half has been staggering. Under the rule of Abiy Ahmed, the East African country has turned itself from one of the region’s most crisis-ridden nations into one of its most politically progressive – both domestically and internationally.

The political reforms taking place in Ethiopia have earned the country a new-found status as a pioneer for rights and freedoms in Africa while its international efforts -namely last year’s peace deal with Eritrea – have elevated its power of influence in the East Africa region and beyond.

It’s difficult to think of another example where so much positive change has taken place in such a short space of time.
