  • AfBAA launched its first independent Chapter in Addis Ababa

    The African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA) launched its first independent Chapter on 9 August 2016, when the AfBAA Ethiopia Chapter was formed in the country's capital Addis Ababa. The meeting, which was also the first in a series of AfBAA Country Roundtables, was attended by almost 40 delegates. Representatives from both the public and private sectors discussed the current state of business aviation in Ethiopia, and how best to enhance the industry, and its anticipated growth.

    Representatives of the civil aviation authority, AfBAA's executive director, private operators, aviation suppliers, Ethiopian Airlines, and members of the media, discussed challenges and solutions related to the development of Ethiopia's business aviation sector.

    The event commenced in the morning with a keynote address from AfBAA's executive director, Mr. Rady Fahmy, defining the role AfBAA plays in the growth of business aviation on the continent. Mr Fahmy highlighted that the association anticipates Ethiopia will experience tremendous growth of, and greater opportunities for, business aviation:

    “We have identified two countries that we believe will witness major growth in the upcoming decade. One of those two countries is Ethiopia. We, as your association, have been fortunate to observe the factors that have created growth in certain countries around Africa, and I am here to share with you that it is our belief that it is only a matter of time before Ethiopia becomes a major business aviation hub. It is inevitable - in our best judgment - that Ethiopia will join, or perhaps lead Africa in business aviation, just like it currently does in commercial aviation.”

  • EBC Criticized for Censoring Lelisa’s Finishing Line Marathon

    Ethiopia’s state-owned TV network has refused to broadcast footage of one of its most successful Olympic athletes crossing the finishing line or receiving his medal after he staged a political protest against oppression back home.

    Feyisa Lilesa won silver in the men’s marathon on the last day of events in Rio, making him Ethiopia’s joint second most successful performer after the country won just one gold in a disappointing campaign. As he crossed the line on Sunday he raised his arms to form an “X”, a symbol of defiance that has been used by the Oromo people in Ethiopia as part of political protests against the government.

    Lilesa repeated the act in a press conference after the race, and said he would repeat it at the medal ceremony later. He told reporters he faced being killed for doing so if he returns home after the Games. EBC, the Ethiopian state broadcaster, was showing Lila’s race live on TV on Sunday afternoon. As such, it was unable to avoid airing his protest as it happened the first time. But the moment he crossed the line was cut from subsequent bulletins and, unlike with its other champions, EBC refused entirely to show footage of Lilesa being given his silver medal.

  • Kenya Supports Tedros Adhanom’s Campaign for WHO Leadership

    Kenya appears to have thrown its weight behind Ethiopia's candidate for the position of executive director of the World Health Organisation. Ethiopia's Minister of Foreign Affairs Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is the only African vying to head the WHO.

    On Monday, Health CS Cleopa Mailu held private discussions with Tedros in Addis Ababa during the just-ended WHO's regional meeting on implementation of the universal health coverage. Tedros said if appointed, he will work closely with Kenya to learn how homegrown solutions have transformed healthcare in Kenya and how they can be replicated in the rest of the region.
    He also promised to make Africa his priority.

    “As the former Minster of Health in Ethiopia he understands the regions diseases burden,” said a statement from Kenya's Ministry of Health. Mailu told Tedros to help African countries gain more control of their health agenda through domestic financing. Tedros would be the first African to head the global health body.

    In January, the African Union Assembly of Heads of State and Government endorsed him as the sole candidate from Africa.
