Ethiopian Premier League’s (EPL) newest club Mekele City FC (M City) announced the inclusion of three new foreign players to its squad on Wednesday. The three players joining Mekele include two Ghanaians and one from Equatorial Guinea.
The constitution of Ethiopia under Article 21 provides that all persons held in custody and persons imprisoned upon conviction and sentencing have the right to treatments respecting their human dignity.
There is no guarantee that the recent protests sweeping the Amhara and Oromia regions of Ethiopia will not spread to other regions. Though the constitution recognizes the right of citizens to assemble and to demonstrate together with others peaceably and unarmed, the protests have led to the death and injury of scores as well as property damage. The heavy-handed response to the protests is liable to sow further conflict and instability.
Governing a nation is a grave responsibility which requires of leaders to personify wisdom, far-sightedness, integrity, leadership skills and an unswerving commitment to peace, democracy and development.
