Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed awarded Nobel Peace Prize

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed was presented with the Nobel Peace Prize after winning the accolade in October for his peacemaking efforts with Eritrea.

In a speech delivered at Oslo City Hall before dignitaries including Norway’s King Harald V, Abiy praised the “good will” of Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki and described the two countries’ commitment to peace as “iron-clad”. But Abiy, who at 43 is Africa’s youngest political leader, also spoke of the dangers facing his region.

Since taking power in 2018, Abiy has implemented sweeping political reforms that won him praise but also lifted the lid on long-repressed tensions between Ethiopia’s many ethnic groups.
