After 27 years of domination of the political space, the EPRDF unraveled from the inside enduring three years of anti-government protests. It gave way to the meteoric rise of Abiy Ahmed (PhD) both on the domestic and international stage. The jury is still out on whether or not the political transformation is for the better or worse.
What is evident was that political transitions, as in the mid-1970s and early 1990s, is no walk in the park. The widening of the political space, the loosening of restraints to organisation and speech, the charging of officials suspected of past crimes, major economic reforms and ideological reorientation of the ruling party are creating challenges that pose an existential threat to the state.
It laid bare the complexity of the socio-political and economic condition of Ethiopia, which unless carefully approached risks collapse.
