In Ethiopia Banned TV channel opens in Ethiopia


A US-based Ethiopian media outlet that was banned in the Horn of Africa country has opened an office in Addis Ababa, the privately owned Addis Standard website reports.

“Oromo Media Network, which was facing terrorism charges until recently, has inaugurated its office in #AddisAbaba today,” tweeted Addis Standard.

Several government officials are reportedly attending the inauguration ceremony.

Minnesota-based OMN was banned in Ethiopia in February 2017 after the government said it belonged to “terrorist” organisations, but the ban was lifted last month as part of reforms being undertaken by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
