Effort to combat coronavirus force Kenya to restore internet to opposition hotspot

Ethiopia is restoring the internet in western parts of the country in an effort to control the spread of coronavirus.

Services have been blocked for the past three months following an outbreak of violence in western Oromia. In some areas phone services were also cut.

Armed members of Ethiopia’s Oromo ethnic group have for months been attacking government officials and clashing with the security forces.

University students from the Amhara ethnic group have been kidnapped.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who is himself Oromo, has faced mounting opposition from Oromo activists as well as members of other ethnic groups.

There have been 23 confirmed Covid-19 cases in Ethiopia and no known deaths.
