Ameyu Etana BBC Afaan Oromo

The man who has been the face of the conflict in Ethiopia – senior army commander General Bacha Debele – has been appointed as an ambassador.

Details of his destination have not yet been disclosed by the office of the president.

It may indicate a change in tactics by the government – earlier on Wednesday the cabinet said it intended to end the state of emergency declared in November early.

Analysts say it may be part of a strategy to engage with the international community 15 months into the civil war.Article share tools
