Ethiopia: Back to the Future 2005

Ethiopia Insight posted on 22 May 2020 a commentary titled "For Ethiopia's Political Tribes, It's 2005 Redux" by Mistir Sew, a generic byline for all anonymous authors.

The author suggests that Ethiopia's political climate today resembles the one that existed before the 2005 elections.  There is, however, a big difference.  The three political power bases now are Tigray and Afar, urban elites including Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, and the Oromo-dominated south.
