Mail & Guardian: Clamp down on Ethiopia's independent media... (Watch video here.) Mail & Guardian report that the Ethiopian government's systematic repression of independent media has created a bleak landscape for free expression ahead of their May elections.
In a report released earlier this week, Human Rights Watch details how the Ethiopian government has curtailed independent reporting since 2010, and says legal and policy reforms are crucial in Ethiopia prior to the May 2015 elections.
