Ethiopia declares state of emergency

Date: 08 November 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • Ethiopia declared a six-month state of emergency after forces from the northern region of Tigray gained territory and considered marching on the capital Addis Ababa.
  • The announcement came two days after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed urged citizens to take up arms to defend themselves against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
  • Authorities in Addis Ababa told residents to register their arms and prepare to defend their neighbourhoods.
  • The TPLF had dominated Ethiopian politics for nearly three decades but lost much influence when Abiy took office in 2018 following years of anti-government protests.
