ADDISABABA – Ethiopia has freed two leading opposition figures from prison, state broadcaster EBC said on Friday, after the Balderas for Genuine Democracy opposition party announced the release of its leader Eskinder Nega.

Jawar Mohammed, who also owns a media company, and Bekele Garba, were granted “amnesty” by the authorities, alongside several other political activists who were arrested and charged with various crimes in 2020, the Ethiopia Broadcasting Corporation said in a tweet.
