Addis Abeba Warms Up to Receive Issayas Afeworqi




Residents of Addis Abeba are out on the streets to receive Eritrea’s President Issayas Afeworqi, scheduled to arrive this morning for a historic meeting.

Lines of buses under the city government are offloading thousands of residents mobilized by wereda administrations on Africa Avenue (Bole Road). T-shirts bearing the images of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) and President Issayas are on sale on the streets. Security is tight along the Africa Avenue where pedestrians and vehicles are thoroughly searched before proceeding.
