ESAT makes narrow tribalists uncomfortable - Abebe Gelaw

Prior to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's appointment, the Ethiopian Satellite Television (ESAT) used to be a TV station that was deemed to spread terror and was jammed by the government. The station reported on atrocities and injustice done by the government and gave information to the public which otherwise would not be found.  Ethiopia has been undertaking political reforms led by prime minister Abiy for nearly a year now and the changes are visible. Among them is the ESAT team, who were mostly designated as terrorists, have returned home after years in exile. A group of ESAT journalists arrived in Addis Ababa early this morning and received a warm welcome upon their arrival. After the welcoming ceremony, the journalists head to the Friendship Hotel to give a press conference. In the conference, ESAT’s Managing Director Abebe Gelaw gave a review of ESAT’s objectives and plans for the future. Watch the press conference and Mereja TV correspondent report.
