11:36 pm
supporters say he deserves a nobel peace prize but he also faces big challenges millions of internally displaced people if it conflicts and the growing frustration that politics isn't 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 don't have a you know. there's men don't touch happiness in the country now because of abi but i'm. going to get my leg this time but. this is the man they're talking about. he's been prime minister in ethiopia for year and in that time he's opened up the country and undertaken radical reforms concluded
11:37 pm
a peace treaty with arch enemy eritrea and released thousands of political prisoners now he's treated like 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. just like. that's now activists i'm not on the streets i'm not starting i'm not all demonstration. may it's a comments online on current politics she finds that he has made many changes to the political system but says it's time for a concrete change. as an ordinary citizen change it's still there is social problem. he owes she doesn't have does involve job. one reason mates is days involved as her little daughter macy hopes that ethiopia
11:38 pm
will become a more just and equitable country. the success is also shadowed by ethnic conflicts that have broken out in the multi racial society this is a refugee camp. i mean are you your house send fled here from eastern if you go with her family he did seize any they threw children in the river. they killed a pregnant women who couldn't run away any kind of a behind others with sticks with nails in them and i did the most better they didn't need to get any much better more of that over the blood flowed in the streets like water any mean it that he had any idea more than eighty ethnic groups live in ethiopia i mean 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. to see how do you respond to the conflicts which i've opened up everywhere
11:39 pm
and this is not anything new if you look at the history of you know these transitions from but a very rigid dictatorship into a sort of liberal democracy that period is extremely dangerous. i mean a 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 i want to talk some more about the change in ethiopia and i'm joined by is ships have a kilo for africa hi isha so why don't here in is obvious myth so as popular as he was when he first came to paula. burmistrov yamaha's is a very big support among good 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
11:40 pm
country so many ethiopian citizens out of questioning how his government is committed to 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 lawful or protecting good. citizens from tax in different parts of the country right i mean he's what about a lydia who has been praised for reforms among them appoints a cabinet comprised fifty percent of women but some of these 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
11:41 pm
the first chief justice is assigned to the head of the justice sector and she's responsible in reforming the sector so it's all that if they conflict as well in this country it's been rife and the prime minister doesn't have a concrete pad to tackle this issue that quite frankly has run played if he did decide to change it within the last one year but the still there are tensions in different parts of the country for example in part of the region in terms of the region there are still conflicts within different it in the kleins there is a tension between the armada and to great regions in the north as. his government came up with a commission which we. studied this conflict this we didn't different than any communities and are expected to came up with a sort of should but how fruitful this commission will be. right it has
