Ambassador Taye Atske-selassie receives copies of letters of credence of the new Namibian Ambassador to Ethiopia

Ambassador Taye Atske-selassie received copies of letters of credence of the new Namibian Ambassador to Ethiopia Ms. Monica Ndiliawike Nashandi on Thursday (January 14). Ambassador Monica N. Nashandi said she was glad to be an Ambassador to the country that played a key role in liberating Namibia from the evils of colonialism. Ambassador Monica noted the resemblance between the Namibia Development Plans (NDPs) and the Growth and Transformation Plans of Ethiopia (GTPs); where the NDP4 of Namibia and GTP II of Ethiopia had even more intersections in that they focus on boosting up the manufacturing sector and scaling up of SMEs (Small and Medium Size Enterprises). She further noted that SMEs had been playing immense role in Namibianization of the Economy from the post independency periods till now in creating employment opportunities and enhancing skill and knowledge transfer. Mentioning the increasing bilateral relation between the countries in areas of aviation; where Ethiopian Airlines had long been giving training to Namibian pilots and technicians, hotel and tourism, health and other sectors, Ambassador Monica added, we have to do more. Ambassador Taye noted Ethiopia was looking forward to closely work with historical partner and added, Over the years we have witnessed the progress Namibia had made and given Ethiopia’s notable growth we would continue to harvest opportunities from each others’ potentialities.

The United States Calls for Meaningful Dialogue About Oromo Community Concerns

The United States is increasingly concerned by the continued stifling of independent voices in Ethiopia, including the detention of Oromo political party leaders. These arrests have a chilling effect on much needed public consultations to resolve legitimate political grievances in Oromia.

We support the Government of Ethiopia’s December commitment to public consultation with affected communities. For these consultations to be meaningful, all interested parties must be able to express their views freely.

We reaffirm our call on the Ethiopian Government to refrain from silencing dissent and to protect the constitutionally enshrined rights of all citizens, including the right to gather peacefully, to write, and to speak freely as voices of a diverse nation. We call for the release of those imprisoned for exercising their rights, such as political party leaders and journalists.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia,

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, H.E. Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, deplores the suicide bomb attack that took place at a mosque in Kouyape Cameroon’s northern region in the morning of 13 January 2016, resulting into 13 deaths, including the suicide bomber, and one wounded.

The Chairperson strongly condemns such senseless attacks against innocent civilians and expresses deep sympathy to the families of the victims and wishes speedy recovery to the injured. She also expresses the AU’s solidarity with the people and Government of the Republic of Cameroon and thanks the Cameroonian Government for its continued efforts to combat terrorism, especially the Boko Haram terrorist group that has pledged allegiance to the so-called Islamic State (IS).

The Chairperson reiterates the AU’s continued commitment, through the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) established by the Member States of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC) and Benin to eliminate Boko Haram, to neutralize this terrorist group. She recalls that at its 560th meeting, on the ongoing efforts to neutralize Boko Haram, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 26 November 2015, the Peace and Security Council commended the LCBC Member States and Benin for their continued efforts to fully operationalize the MNJTF. She calls for stronger global cooperation in the efforts to prevent and combat terrorism, in line with various AU and global instruments.
