  1. The Ethiopian Prime Minister is widely known in the world of repression and arbitrary rule in Ethiopia. Currently most Ethiopians are seeking refugee in Europe because of repression in Ethiopia as people are denied freedom of movement, expression and belonging to a political group of their choice. Oromo people of Ethiopia are all almost in prison. That MOU need not extend to Zambia.
