A Coup in Africa; This Time in Ethiopia
ISWNews Analysis Group: The chief of staff of the Ethiopian army and also Amhara region governor have been shot dead during a coup by some army forces of this country.
According to Ethiopia’s government officials Gen Seare Mekonnen, has been shot dead by his own bodyguard in the capital, Addis Ababa and the meeting of the government officials in Bahir Dar city also has been attacked by the security organization chief and Ambachew Mekonnen the governor and some other officials in this state are killed or injured.
PM Abiy Ahmed, announced that the coup is suppressed. (Some of important actions of Abiy Ahmed are so far: a peace agreement with Eritrea and Ethiopia. He also went to Khartoum to mediate between the engaged sides during the coup in Sudan).
Ethiopia is the center of management of the African union and one the main founders of this union. The African union forces is also countering with some terrorist groups such as ISIS and Boko Haram, etc. in African countries. Maybe disarranging the situations in Ethiopia is a caution to Abiy Ahmed (for not interference in Sudan) or just part of some plans for the future of Africa.
