  • PM Hailemariam Desalegn sacks Ethiopian Education Minister Shiferaw Shigute - Sept. 5, 2016

    Shiferaw is an executive committee member of EPRDF and former president of SNNP region.

     

    Shiferaw is the second person to be sacked from Hailemariam's home party SEPDM after the latest EPRDF Council meeting.

     

    The EPRDF council announced last week a plan to conduct massive "clean up" including its top leadership.

    It appears Hailemariam is setting the tone of the purge by sacking two ministers, who are also two of the 9 top people in SEPDM.

    The EPRDF executive committee consists 36 members drawn from the four member parties. OPDO had sacked one of its executive committee members in June. 
    ANDM and TPLF are expected to follow suit.

    [It is also worth noting that I said Hailemariam would wish to sack Shiferaw Shigute last year this month, ahead of EPRDF Congress]
