Ethiopian Prime Minister Goes to Battlefront Wherever It Is

 The Associated Press published an article on 24 November 2021 titled "Ethiopia Says PM, a Nobel Peace Laureate, Is at Battlefront."  

As rebel forces slowly approach from the north Ethiopia's capital of Addis Ababa, the government of Ethiopia announced that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed arrived at the battlefront on 23 November to lead Ethiopian National Defense Force troops.

Comment:  The government has not yet shown any pictures of Abiy at the battlefront and it is not entirely clear where exactly the battlefront is located.  For that matter, it is not certain that the rebel forces even intend to try to take Addis Ababa.  It is a multiethnic city.  How would they control or govern it even if they had a military victory?
