After three weeks, Tigray’s forces were driven into the mountains of central Tigray and Ethiopian forces took control of Mekelle. What’s more, the Eritrean and Ethiopian forces responsible for the looting killed 16 civilians who tried to stop them. A wide variety of coercive mechanisms were used to attack Tigrayan businesses in the rest of Ethiopia. Following the December 2021 retreat of Tigray’s forces, it appears that measures being taken by authorities against Tigrayans outside of Tigray have decreased. When also taking into consideration the increasingly battered Ethiopian economy, it appears that rehabilitating Tigray’s economy will take many decades.

This line of business has been providing decent income for women and their kin, all the while contributing to their independence as these women plan, manage, and deliver through shuttle or travel commerce. Upon arrival at their destination, transport options and hassles confront these luggage traders. Of course, luggage traders can bring in excess of that with additional payment. Despite higher prices of many Dubai items attained from shuttle traders, Eden claims it is still cheaper than local options like Merkato. The issue of more women involving in economic activities has far-reaching impacts and consequences than just empowering women or sharing household expenses.

NAIROBI: Kenya's biggest telecoms operator Safaricom is encouraged by the positive outlook in Ethiopia and plans to start operations there this year, its chief executive said on Thursday after reporting a 13.5% rise in group operating profit.The company, which is partly owned by South Africa's Vodacom and Britain's Vodafone, secured a licence to operate in neighbouring Ethiopia a year ago, but is yet to launch operations there.Safaricom said in November that the war that broke out in 2020 between the Ethiopian government and Tigray People's Liberation Front could affect its initial target of breaking even within four years of the subsidiary's launch. "Ethiopia has experienced some unforeseen and unprecedented circumstances since our licence award," Safaricom's CEO Peter Ndegwa told an investor briefing on Thursday. "We are encouraged though by the positive outlook to Ethiopia's security and political situation, and the return to normal economic activity in most of the areas in the country," he said.The group will still launch commercial operations there this year, he added.To supplement its network, which will launch with 1,000 base transmission stations, Safaricom will connect to and eventually share towers with state telecoms firm Ethio Telecom, he said. "That is an important part of our ability to launch," he said, adding that a deal on the tower network will be done by the end of this month.The Ethiopian telecoms regulator signed off on the plan for the firms to share infrastructure last month.Safaricom's earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) jumped to 109.1 billion Kenyan shillings ($940.52 million) in its year to the end of March, driven by its financial services business, it said.In its home market, service revenues rose 12.3%, with revenue from mobile money platform M-Pesa surging by close to a third.M-Pesa, launched as the world's first ever mobile phone-based money transfer service 15 years ago, has over the years grown to largely outpace revenues from data and voice.Safaricom cut its final dividend by almost a fifth to 0.75 shillings and guided for EBIT to reach 87 billion to 93 billion shillings in its year to the end of next March.

VATICAN CITY — “Tigray is really in hell,” said a Catholic priest from the war-ravaged northern region of Ethiopia. “I consider these to be war crimes.”The priest’s testimony echoes those of other Church leaders in the region. “I feel Church authorities have no real picture of the terrible situation,” said one of the three priests contacted by the Register. “Tigrayan people are not beggars, but the government deliberately destroyed last year’s harvest so now they’re trying to portray us as the poorest region,” said one of the priests. He also claimed the Tigrayan militias are no longer a force as they have all been effectively halted.
