Ethiopia: PM Abiy Ahmed to form a new government

Hours after his inauguration, the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed who will lead the country for the next five years is expected form a new government on Monday.

PM Abiy is nevertheless under intense pressure to unify his country under pressure of ethnic and political divisions, starvation and allegations of human rights abuses.

At issue, Abiy continues to face international pressure over war in Tigray, which observers claim has resulted in famine and ethnic cleansing.
