The Ethiopian Media Authority has barred local FM radio stations from streaming of foreign radio programmes. Some FM radio stations routinely engage in streaming radio programmes from foreign stations either live or through a link. One of these was Ahadu FM, which regularly streamed programmes from the Voice of America. The Authority's officials cite the lack of control local stations have over content as the reason behind the ban. "The local stations would have less control over programmes they transfer from foreign radio stations and the Authority finds it difficult to regulate such programmes," said Mohammed Idris, director at the Authority. The ban became effective on October 30, 2021.
