8:34 pm
us you know last year i think to the independent electronically in order to put regulations in terms of what you know at this point you may and may not say because we believe that this is that in say they're going to my parents it's five you know and they are the one point eight degrees i ducked just about to the south african government saying that this is criminality and not cynical be a what is your response to that in any case as you know who here is you know a community despise weapons and more to it we believe that this is criminality not the whole deal when it is targeted to particular mission islands and it's not a general. crime it becomes very untrue in our view because as long as the critique is accurate as a particular case if my reasons are enough facts about williams. and if you persist then that's the kind of right about that my last question to you and
8:35 pm
please give us a brief on so you know what in your opinion. do you believe that. handing this mess with with k when we don't really think that i mean you know the commitment that if we have one begun we believe that to be a lot of that is more. than enough to actually commit it is i know how to get talks because we're not seeing different being honest and prosecuted you know what is right for all right. the african diaspora i'm sorry coming to us from johannesburg thank you. thank you very. soon ethiopia now where prime minister may have slipped and sweeping reforms have him international acclaim and domestic popularity some supporters say he deserves a nobel peace prize but he also faces big challenges millions of internally displaced people if these conflicts and the growing frustration that politics isn't
8:36 pm
changing fast enough we'll talk more about that in a moment but first here's more how on how people in ethiopia are reacting to their lead as first year in power. that is the capital of ethiopia there's a new energy here people have invested their hopes in their prime minister. he said no good he brought us change and that's why i call him a prophet you know never you know. there's men don't touch happiness in the country now because of abi but i'm. going to give my liver that's come on this is the man they're talking about. he's been prime minister in ethiopia for a year and in that time he's opened up the country and undertaken radical reforms concluded a peace treaty with arch enemy eritrea and released thousands of political prisoners now he's treated like
8:37 pm
a pop star. some however are still withholding judgment like teacher made some muhammad she was active in the opposition and was arrested multiple times in demonstrations against the old regime. who were shouting again just a different it was. it's now activists i'm not on the streets i'm not shouting i'm not i've been once ration. mates and comments online on current politics she finds that she has made many changes to the political system but says it's time for a concrete change. as an ordinary citizen change which still there is a problem that a lot of those she doesn't hold is involved job. one reason mates is days involved is her little daughter macy hopes that ethiopia will become a more just and equitable country. gobbing success
8:38 pm
is also shadowed by ethnic conflicts that have broken out in the multi racial society this is a refugee camp. i mean i you you know has send fled here from eastern if you know with her family he did pick up seize any they threw children in the river. they killed a pregnant women who couldn't run away any kind of a big brothers with sticks with nails in them and i did the most better they didn't need to do any much better what that over the blood flowed in the streets like water. the net that we had any. more than eighty ethnic groups live in ethiopia. and these women are a rumor driven from their home in a struggle over land and power i mean a is one of about three million people who fled and have you know his multiple conflicts which i've opened up everywhere and this is not anything new if you look at the history of you know these transitions
8:39 pm
from but a bit of rigid dictatorship into a sort of liberal democracy that period is extremely dangerous. i mean it is slowly losing patience with the prime minister but she still hopes that i mean i will bring stability to ethiopia so that she can go home and i want to talk some more about the change in ethiopia and i'm joined by if ships have a kilo from africa hi isha says so when you're in is obviously it so most popular as he was when he first came to paula. burmistrov yama has a very big support among the europeans but that doesn't mean there are questions over his government his leadership and his decisions especially after his government failed to support internally displaced people in different parts of the country so many ethiopian citizens out of questioning how his government
8:40 pm
is committed to the sort of some problems to answer some questions in the country and the rule of law is another question there are so many problems in different parts of the country so. people are asking where that he's government is really competent in. protecting the law of law protecting good. citizens from tax in different parts of the country right i mean he is what about a video who has been praised for reforms among them appoints a cabinet comprise fifty percent of women itself his critics are now saying that he is running a one man show. that's a legitimate question definitely but there are some signs within the government to give the assignment to different government institutions for example as you know the first chief justice is assigned to the head justice sector
8:41 pm
and she's responsible in reforming dissected so it's all that if they conflict as well in this country it's better rise and the prime minister doesn't have a concrete pad to tackle this issue that quite frankly has long played if he didn't decide to change it within the last one year but the still there are tensions in different parts of the country for example in two thousand part of the region in talk of the region there are still conflict is within different it's a new clients there is a tension between the armada and to great regions in the north. his government came up with a commission which we. studied this conflict this we didn't defend it in the communities and they are expected to came up with this sort of should but how fruitful this commission will be. right it has a great thing if the op is set to hold an election next year what's the feeling
8:42 pm
about how that will go. there are two groups one people some teams some group groups are expecting to postpone the may twenty to an election others are not ready for that so they said out no it must be held on time but there are so many problems we don't know whether the government is capital in helping this election because there are security problems in the country in different parts of the country for example the government is forced to postpone the census so helping the election is another tough assignment for the government all right it says have a get a from date of the africa of that insight on ethiopia thank you thank you very much . and that is it from the news africa you can catch all our stories on our website and facebook page we leave you now with pictures from ethiopia and now that prime
