Ethiopia's Young Prime Minister Shakes Things Up In Africa

One of the mediation efforts during the current crisis in Sudan involves the 42-year-old prime minister of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed. Ahmed has only been Ethiopia's prime minister since 2018 but he's already ended a 20-year conflict with neighboring Eritrea and taken steps to make his own country less authoritarian. He's also been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Here & Now's Lisa Mullins speaks with the BBC's Kalkidan Yibeltal (@Kal_KidanY), who is in Addis Ababa.

This BBC interview can be heard in the Here & Now podcast or with the WBUR app.
